Oh my god... This hero is horrific. Maybe its just new to me because I've been fine with S2 heroes in the past, but this... is just god awful.
Passive ability is decently interesting, but would be much more appealing if he used his swords at close range and did more damage when he did so. (Damage amp jumps up when he switches)
Shield doesnt even make sense and its outright dumb even if it did make sense.
Nuke - meh, so boring and seemingly generic that I couldnt find anything to hate, but that doesnt mean I could find anything I like about it either
And the ultimate: When I saw the ultimate, I was looking forward to what the ultimate would look like. Unfortunately, the jump-to-target skill I was looking at turned out to be the ultimate, and at that point, I just closed the video down in disappointment.
why do so many complain? just a new hero. play it if you like, dont play if you dont. Problem = solved...
but yeah the running animations need a tweak
Sorry, but my english sucks! :
Cool down and manacost on that shield better be nerfed or this guy is going to be Ba-bombing.
Alcohol may be man's worst enemy, but the bible says love your enemy.
S2, i know alot of people are upset etc, but that is NOT the game playerbase that is the forum playerbase, not all players go on the forums.. personally, i love this hero i think he's going to be awesome whether he is OP or UP or stolen skills from everyone.. i think it's a NEW idea and is lots of fun!
Agree the spotlight lacked some of the vibe it normally has but oh well still awesome! but i think the alt avatar for ea better be good or people wont buy him :P
I'm personally disappointed that it's a ganker that doesn't seem any different from the current 'engage from distance and murk' variety.
If the ultimate was made a skill shot then it might be more interesting (Pharaoh).
I suppose a ranged agility ganker was missing (Arachna is more a carry. It's like saying SB is a ganker or MQ is). His passive however contradicts this void. It solves the void of lack-of Melee-Range hero (excluding Wildsoul).
It depends what the alt avatar looks like, if I'll buy EA. It's by no-means bad. I'm just underwhelmed.
One crippling flaw of the hero design is the fact that all his damage is physical. He also has an absorbtion shield that scales with agility. Then why is the only armour debuff modifier without agility? If he's a ganker then he'll devolve into the support-carry role late game and ought to be the one making the Shieldbreaker.
If he was a ranged agility tank then I suppose I'd prefer the hero concept. It's the little skill, high reward ganker that I dislike.

Not gonna lie, worst spotlight S2 ever made , sorry.
Plus the animations, the sounds , it's just .... really guys u're getting Lazy.
I mean... His auto attack sounds like flint's ULT , and his First Skill Shots sounds like Flint's auto attack, Sweet, , Anyways lets see and wait the release they probably gonna change it.
he only uses his left arm to auto attack. XD this is pathetic. im outta here.
Seriously flints ulti sound on his auto attacks is so annoying...gg
make him actually SLASH with the blades when in melee range. otherwise I don`t see a reason for him to wield gunBLADES and not simple guns. He walks like a mummy with paralysed foot. I won`t comment on other parts
Because if he's not near you, he's not taking advantage of most of his skillset.

Kinda sad how people complain about this hero without any good arguments.
It's so sad I see people explaining it to them, while those people shouldn't even be bothered with, but at the same time, you need them to keep the game up and running T_T
The spotlight is fine. What I've come to expect from a spotlight is basically a preview of all the spells and how they work, any flashy cutscenes or whatever comes as an extra. Extra effects are cool, but I won't cry if one is without. What really creams my corn however is the animations. I mean jesus Hope you fix it cause the hero seems awesome to play.
And can someone give the man/woman responsible for the soundwork on Xeno Predator an award? Cause that must be the most awesome **** ive heard with my earorgans ever. So please fix the animations on that guy too! Its like a stick hopping around
