refine it you say

maybe water treatment is getting repurposed? it's one of the few parts of KC that's never been updated, and it would balance out the S8 KC updates by putting something new on the opposite side

Big fan of




Years ago in League, they killed off a champ for a plot thing, and he was briefly un-selectable as a champion (the tooltip literally said "Gangplank is dead").

I want Caustic's gas to do 20 damage a tick, just for a day, is what I'm saying.

The preview refers to (spoilers for the next map change and location) a Caustic "town takeover" of Water Treatment.

NGL it's been really weird not having full white gear +mozzie on drop and seeing a bunch of white items again. Game felt so much faster when you didn't have to sweat finding blue or better stuff.

I think they should always have you drop with a kit and just have it rotate. Sometimes it's Mozambique Week, then P20, etc

Last season, it was Horizon and Pathfinder on the title screen. Horizon the new character. Pathfinder eventually was the star of an event.

This season it's Fuse and Caustic on the title screen.

What use had they for tricks and cunning, living in the enemy's warren and paying his price?

And Fuse slapped Caustic on the rear end. I still love the look on the latter's face.

And Bloodhound's reaction is perfect.

Skeleton King becoming Wraith King happened well over a year after the trademark dispute with Blizzard had ended. I've mostly seen it attributed to China not being okay with skeletons.

I wish they'd stop trying to sell those awful Kraber skins and their recolors. I swear they've been in the shop more than anything else

The recolor of the sunken ship Hemlok skin that's in there now is dope

I like having three levels of loot. Just finding blues and purples was kind of boring.

Yeah IMO if I was in charge the best path forward is a middle ground between the base game and the LTM. Drop with a Mozambique, 1x HCOG, Level 1 Evo Shield, 2 syringes and shield cells. Everything else you find.

Dropping with a gun and armour actually means that I don't mind hot dropping anymore because I can still down someone with the mozzie and have some wiggle room unless they find like, purple and a mastiff or something.

Dropping without anything and losing the ping battle to pick something up because all my friends are on NA kinda sucks

Yeah I really like starting with armor, any gun, and a couple of healing items. It feels so nice to have a fighting chance on a hot drop rather than automatically dying because you found a bunch of attachments and no gun or armor.

I really liked the kitted out guns and rarity. I think that's one thing that Warzone does well since you're not just scrambling to pick bits and pieces of loot up

Tibalt
May 14, 2017


I could take it or leave it on the armor, but the real things I'll miss are the backpacks and knockdown shields. I hate managing my loot with just the 10 slots and it's too easy for somebody to casually finish you off with no knockdown shield, but I'm never excited to pick them up either. Same with the cells and syringes.

I enjoy having a weapon when I drop but... this sounds crazy to say, but I think the Moz is too good. Maybe the P2020 instead?

Lol, if you had spent the last two weeks with the p2020 you'd be saying the same about the moz.

It's just familiarity.

Yeah the reload speed is what really makes the mozz so bad. If it could take an extended mag it'd... well, I guess it'd just be a mini EVA-8 at that point

Someone needs to tell the devs that looting isn't particularly fun and the current mode still regularly has weird loot. It's not like I'm getting everything I want every single game. I think Locked and Loaded is a vast improvement.

The scramble for guns and shields is what makes hot drops so terrible. I fully support default white items.

Tibalt
May 14, 2017


Yeah, but evo shields are the only thing you can really see from enough distance that you can redirect to them during the drop. Once Shrike taught me that trick, I started winning a lot more hot drops in ranked.

Edit: although I guess you could still see blue or purple shields too, so nevermind.

I can usually tell what guns on rooftops are in time to redirect to them, which makes things a lot easier when it happens
