    A lot of the Tanks are Raid bosses. Or at least Dungeon bosses. Its no wonder 2 Tanks are so prominent in Pro games.

    I have most experience with Makoa, And he is a total beast. He gets kills So increadibly easy, and he has so much health, and amazing shield, and a fantastic Ult.

    The game would not explode if either all Tanks basic level were lowered a bit, or every other class were elevated slightly.
    It would take a LOT of nerfing to make Tanks useless, and give us a No-Tank Meta.

    Would anyone here have a problem with balancing it so that in a competitive game, Solo Tanking, or Double Tanking is almost equally as viable? Because right now, and pretty much always, Double Tanks are the better option. Unless youre doing some specific Dive Comp.

    Would it be so bad if the entire game didnt revolve around which Tanks plays the best?

    Fernando 'Countered by Wrecker' is not entirely true. Wrecker just makes him re position at the speed of light and fireball down your team so he can get his shield back.

    All the frontlines have a good balance when it comes to the roster, but Fernando is much stronger then most of the frontlines unless they know how to play the champ. Makoa is probably the best counter to Fernando bc throwing fern outta position or outta shield will ruin his game, doubly so when they are on low health. Rukus has the repositioning of a god and can kite nando round all day. Ash can poke from high ground and slap fern with caut, force him to back off from flanking. Torvald is a good second tank vs nando but trash in general vs enemy frontlines Protection actually can save people 1/12 of the time but his shield can make fern attack him all day and nothing would happen. Inara can stave of his cauterize, lock him down but requires a team to take advantage of this. Barrik can only poke him these days and gets roasted in close quarters.

    All Tanks are overly powerful compared to other classes though. Damage and flanks are too weak. 2 Tanks have been the strongest composition in competitive for a very long time.

    True, but it was a lot harder to keep tanks alive before seris and jenos, and two smart damage could get a win off that. This game has a focus on securing ground and pushing smaller enemies away, securing objectives, with two tanks you can secure a side of the map and the objective. If ash wants to prioritise the high ground of serpents beach over the payload that leaves a whole side of the map the enemy team cannot flank around. That is how much pressure a frontline has just from positioning. Damage and flank are indeed losing their edge against these ranged fronlines but I think they will design maps to break this. Splitstone has worked with 2 damage champs over frontlines. A game I had recently with people from PGS was an insane comp to go against on that quarry map due to how long it takes to flank as a tank.

    Are you sure about ALL OF THEM?

    Inara is trash (period), Torvald is trash unless it's played against idiots (basically established fact), and Barik is pretty meh because he can't tank out damage worth anything. It's only Fernando and Ruckus that are really dominant in the meta at all at the moment XD
    Main: Barik
    Secondaries: Pip, Ash, Talus(?), Strix(?)

    An offering of my wisdom on the topic of Barik.

    Ha, you were just lucky the enemy team didn't have a Tyra. She would've 1v1'd you and shredded you in no time. For sure.

    Ok, jokes aside, nice score man. Even for a nando.

    Nice a random game in a random match vs most likely trash players, so much amazing data gathered.
