ive discovered the new OPness: nomad
have you ever watched lord of the rigns? aragorn is nomad
(for those who dont watch lotr: it is like playing diablo 2 except nomad is the character and the rest are zombies and those spiky fukers
he swings sword and the hon all dies
lets see why this happens:
sandstorm is survivability plus slow and ms - it confuses my team and lets nomad initiate on my tempest(not good)
mirage strike/kill strike(?) - this is the best. the W is like a pred leap on steroids. E is like a night hound pouncing - but it is a copy! and oh free invis too wtf idejder?
dustcrit - pretty simple spell. imagine swift or madman crit, except with 100% chance and no cooldown. this spell lets nomad outcarry draconis or even bloodhunter. it even works on creeps and the dragons
no retreat - makes you undieable and creates a moving behemoth ulti. pretty balanced? no its not ffs
stun, slow, blink
requires almost no items
nerf this op main character, we dont want to play as mobs(just nerf it)!!!
or for non d2-player: nerf nomad s2
I think it's fun, especially if it relates to Monkey King.
check my latest games if you dont believe me
i may exaggerate a bit, but he is op
its only hero ive ever one shot devo with
its like female pyro and nh had a child
super ganker + strong carry = nomad
its just too much

Huge truths in that post man! )
Crawl back to the pit that spawned you!
Indeed. To be honest Nomad feels a little over the top in the pubstomper status after all the recent buffs.
"Deadwood's a pretty good hero, has decent lane presence since he can lasthit everything against anyone."
"But he still uses mana though, and I think we've made it clear that we want to devalue mana as a resource as much as possible by making it trivial to gain or need."
"This is true - how can we implement that on a hero though without people calling us out for it?"
"Well, Nomad has a charge-based reliable critical strike...why not just make it hit creeps?"
"...Brilliant. Will it make him stomp pubs too hard though, or even make the competitive players pick him even?"
"Let's cross that hurdle when we come to it, son."
(not me, but hilarious nonetheless)
People who are in this situation are literally marked on the forum as being better at balance than other people on this forum, despite posting things to the suggestion forum that would utterly disrupt the balance of the game in unhealthy ways, considering the current state of the game. If the state of the game were otherwise, it could potentially be a good suggestion.
In balance, the burden of proof is on you to show your suggestion a) does what you say it will do, b) won't disrupt balance elsewhere, and c) isn't retarded beyond belief. Until you show these three things, the last may be assumed.
Perhaps we should close the Balance Dump, then, if you find the throwaway concepts on it to be so offensive and reprehensible.
I've decided to make a sig. I hope you're enjoying it.
