Stephen Fontana responds to last week’s Legend of the Week:
“In regards to the contest here. Here is my argument: Morterblitz is meant to be a TRUE tank. Get out there, take those arc stars to the face, disorient the enemy with flashes and wreck. He is all about making chaos and his ult is SUPER balanced. You have to stand still to get into the map (leaving you exposed like Crypto), they are only three very controlled explosions, so if they are placed in dumb spots they will be ineffective. MorterBlitz is also FULL of personality. COME ON!
Follow Up to last week’s map rotation discussion: I was thinking that each season would flip which map, with the other map being used for the special events. Essentially exactly what we have now. Maybe one map in season 4, but the OTHER map being used for all Ranked play. If they do include both maps at all times, it should be random which one you get so you dont split the player base based on which map you want to play.
Character of the Week: Doppelganger – The Illusionist – DPS
Ray Smauels is 18 years old and the ultimate Mirage superfan. One day he got a little too close and wound up stealing one of Mirage’s early prototype suits. In order to get closer to Mirage, he altered the technology to take the appearance of others, instead of duplicating himself. He has not entered the games in order to force himself to be Mirage’s side kick.
- Passive Ability – Mirage Boost
- Whenever Doppelganger has Mirage on his team his ultimate recharges 50% faster. If he is NOT on his team, whenever he kills a Mirage, his ultimate recharges 100%
- Tactical Ability – Who am I?
- You take the appearance of a random Legend. This causes confusion in the heat of battle. Are we getting third partied?!
- Ultimate Ability – Where am I?
- Create projections in three chosen locations. Is Doppleganger on the roof? Behind the car? In that house?
Character Fix ideas:
Mirage – Ultimate Fix:
When the clones are released they do random “action” moves. Some will run, Some will jump away. Some will shoot. Some will do a combination of a few different things. This makes the ultimate more confusing and useful.
Wraith – Ultimate Fix:
Portals do “ring damage” to opposing teams who use it.”
