    About the new "Wrecker"

    Although it's a great change(even tho it's still gonna get tested), it's a MAJOR Ruckus nerf.

    Buying Wrecker vs Ruckus doesn't benefit a lot, since he is a tank that is more dmg oriented, and with the new Wrecker(More dmg to Frontliners instead of Shields), he is gonna get melted extremely fast, to the point a Support won't be able to sustain him for long, so Ruckus is going to be even MORE reliant on having a secondary frontliner and a support, and pray they don't get Caut 3 and Wrecker 3 else he is gonna be rendered useless.

    What do you guys think about this subject?
    I used to play a lot of Viktor,
    until Hi-Rez build Viktor counters in every champion...


    Main champions:

    Seris (Support)

    Not everyone see's the Dev insight, OP.

    I think this should be talked in the OB 61 preview thread, but what they said is that wrecker now deals damage to frontliners rather than shields.

    10/20/30% dmg to frontliners.

    I am a tank main. All I do is play front line. I have a acc lvl 316 main acc, a 274 alt acc and 2 smurfs in the low 100s all from 95% front line champs. I have tanked through the haven and blast shields nerf, I have tanked through the constant burst dps flank buffs, I have tanked through the constant apparent hatred that lo-rez has for front lines, but this? This is endgame for me. The day this patch goes live is the day I uninstall. I know people do not care when others quit over silly things and I can understand that. It still stands that to me this is unacceptable.

    I don't know... It might be viable. The cards increasing the health of the FL's shield will be more powerful, teamfight will be longer in the late match since Wrecker as it is now melt shield like nothing, it will incite players to flank around the shield more often. The champions who have vertical mobility or throwable damage skill as the Grenade of Viktor will be crucial to gnaw off some HP behind a Nando or a Barik shield style.

    We might see a HP buff on some front liner if it comes live and a new front liner who has a dome shield.

    Now... Is Wrecker will be named differently ?

    Never forget !

    In a way its not that bad, as it punishes more FL that dont rely on shield that much (makoa anyone) and shields wont melt like butter now (if I understood your post correctly, I didnt watch the stream either). Will also split more the caut / wreck and might actually disrupt the 2 tanks meta...

    Well, lets see how it goes! androx with wrecker 3 can now kill fernando in 2 seconds (ohhhhhh I can already see the abuse!)

    If this does go live, it will make cauterize the ONLY good offense card. This is aggression under a different skin, and therefore, a noob trap like aggression was.
    The most useful kind of teammate is one who dodges all your heals and walks into enemy bullets.

    Plat II, do I finally have some credibility now?

    Ruckus is already countered by wrecker though. The new one will probably make it worse, but wrecker is always a good pickup vs the worst of friends.
