    I really can't back that statement though since I haven't tried the buff yet so idk what it's like but as soon as I do, I'll be able to make my decision on it.

    As for the thread itself, specifically the skin...I LOVE IT, I MEAN...WHICH MAEVE MAIN WOULDN'T
    You don't need to compensate for anything when using her daggers now. So, all that training of adjusting to her daggers and learning their timing is now useless..so now some random person can play Maeve and consistently hit her daggers with proper aim which seperated a lot of people from being able to play Maeve to not being able to.

    My response

    This just increases competition now if I play casual and there's an enemy Maeve, I would hope my decision making skills can save me from them.

    Look. I 've been playin all day Maeve today. And I think even I main her, she kinda needed these changes. She is more viable now even for high ELO competitive because her daggers don't need that much time to land anymore. The only thing I think we didn't need, is the bigger hitbox. THAT is what makes her easy to anyone. I totally understand your anguish about making her easier to most ppl, but when you see a good (probably main) Maeve, you can tell the difference.
    Slice it, dice it, flank it, tank it, cap it, push it, now let's play it!

    I think every change that's been made is essential. Everything except the hitbox. THAT is what should bother you. I mean, those changes are making Maeve more viable even for high ELO competitive now. But as for the uniqueness you mention about, well, its easier to play Maeve now after those changes and especially making the hitbox bigger, but you eventually distinguish a good player from a casual one.
    Before this patch, I was calculating way too much my daggers in high distance, and it was so easy for my enemy to avoid them. Now from mid range, they reach the target much faster so that helps alot in many situations. Though I have to admit that making the hitbox bigger wasn't necessary.

    Firstly, it's not that I disagree with the entire buff itself...it just worries me that she became easy to play with hence a lot of ppl being able to play with her, but if it's possible to distinguish the mains from the casual players like you said, then I guess I shouldn't be worried about nothing at all...and like I said, I haven't tried her yet since it releases next week on PS4 so I'll be able to experience what it's like next week. I mean it's true that it is a good thing for her to get these buffs, I miss a lot of my shots as proven in my videos so having the daggers travel faster is a good thing.

    Yeah I don't think anybody understands why the projectile size increase was added.

    I am new to this game and maeve is so frustrating. I already am not used to how slow the characters are and now this pink thing jumps around and kills people with no aim required. I understand heroes like Torvald and Fernando that don't need aim however maeve has cool-downs that 1) give her health 2) reset high mobility abilities. In addition she doesn't even need to reload. The result is what we have now, one person who is getting high leveled with maeve because she is now over tuned. It is really frustrating to play every game knowing a maeve is going to flank you. I just stopped playing support because I already know I am going to die. In a casual match I loaded onto maeve and instantly rekd with her. What surprised me was just how little aim you needed to hit your knives, and the fact I could out maneuver anyone with nimble+prowl made it impossible for them to kill me.

    TLDR; Maeve is over-tuned, incredibly annoying to play against.

    You're new around here so I'll just correct that and say, Maeve requires THE most perfect aim to play well. I can think of no other champ (except maybe Sha Lin) who requires that sort of skill with aiming. Maeve is also one of the hardest champs to play and even harder to master.

    So if you managed to play well with her, she just suits your style.. keep playing her and see how you fare after more matches with more skilled enemies

    I will agree though, a well played Maeve is very annoying But she is in no way "over-tuned".. infact she's been at the bottom of the meta for quite a while.. you just haven't played enough games to know. You'll see
