    Totally agreed!

    They're running out of inspiration to create new characters. So they're creating overpowered characters with the best character skill that already exist in a single character. This Strix is ​​unthinkably overpowered. Didn't they think about it before releaseing? It's an absurd.

    It's not possible to flank the Strix, even with the invisiblity from Skye behind him because he has a pistol that kills quickly. It's an absurd. Also, if our life drops a little, I don't know, 80% for example, you're already afraid of having some invisible Strix because it's HIT-KILL for him.

    In addition, they can remove Kinessa from the game. The Strix completely destroyed any chance of Kinessa being anything in the game.

    It's being disheartening to play this week/month. I'm just entering in the game to get my daily reward and leaving... To play other more interesting games.

    I'm Skye, your worst nightmare.
    We work in the DARK. To serve the LIGHT.

    Look back, look to the side... Look everywhere. I can be ready to kill you anywhere!

    I had a great time as a Zhin against a Kinessa/Strix combo that were actively playing together.

    Max illuminate does shit when youre trying to hunt him down, even if you know where he is.

    Switch up and go for the Kinessa? BOOM, 1300 damage from stealth, and a few pistol shots and youre deleted.

    This is a really ugly combination if both the Kinessa and the Strix can actually aim.

    Try to support the team on the point and around it? Rage from the team, FLANK STRIX OR KINESSA!!11

    My only REAL problem with Strix is that fucking pistol - its ridiculous and needs a lot more recoil or a serious damage reduction.

    I can also add that I am a terrible twitch/sniper type. Strix is like 5x easier for me to use compared to Kinessa.

    Surely It's the first time I see a Sniper that can flank. It's a basically a "Skye with Sniper" and a semi-automatic pistol that has a huge damage btw. He's the most broken and unfair champion I ever seen. I don't like him. He made my expectations wrong and replaced Kinessa.
    His ultimate is the most annoying thing on the entire Paladins. So unfair and has a horrifying FLASHLIGHT (Where is the warnings about flashlights on this game? Someone is going to get hurt if they don't put it) that make all teammates USELESS for damn 3 secs. Until the ultimate effect runs out everyone of the team have died. That Ultimate destroyed Maeve's ult btw. It's the same thing, but the Strix's one is annoying and impossible to not die during its effect.
    His weapon is like a Sniper from Battlefield Remake that kills people with a one-hit-kill.
    Oh. I nearly forgot... Did you noticed that Strix has a Widowmaker's quote?

    HOHOHO. I'm NOT going to let them do it. Make sure I will keep Kinessa alive until Paladins die. No champion shall be replace by a Battlefield Remake camper with no inspiration on his creation. It's like if I make another OP Skye with random skills and having a Counter Strike gameplay.

    How to balance Strix:

    Remove toggle stealth and have it work more like Skye's hidden but with a shorter cool down. That's all. Strix is a damage champion so he has to have competitive damage capabilities. Comparing him to Kinessa is flawed because Kinessa needs a buff or rework.

    I agree the pistol is retarded. Its basically kinessa's carbine with the same fire rate, but a ton more damage and less bullet spread. Its ridiculous how a sniper with no fall off 1300 dmg shots can out damage an androxus at close range.

    Don't lie to me, you haven't played single game as Kinessa against Strix.

    And your elo is 1400
    I purchased Strix minutes after he came out. I've rekt him with Kinessa countless times. I always pick Kinessa if a Strix is picked.

    Iv rekked a Fernando with Skye... Does not mean crap for balance.
    Beating a player has no relevance on the potential of a champ

    Strix has way to many tools compared to other high damage class.
    He needs more close range weakness
    If your teams SUCKS and you find that you can not do anything,... You Suck!

    The road to recovery lies in admitting You SUCK!

    Doing well with a good team is no indication of true skill.
    Stop name calling an admit that you can do better, and you will.

    DONT BE AFRAID TO DIE, ITS THE ONLY WAY TO LEARN NOT TOO...
