    Snipers

    Snipers are constantly banned in comp, and there is always one in casual, and for good reason. Make them do 1k dmg per shot like sha lin does. At least sha lin has to legitimately put himself into the fight to put in work. Hell, even broken ass cassie has to be close enough to you to hit shots reliably. They offer almost no counterplay unless there is a flank on them (which their team often doesn't let happen) since they give damage over range with 0 dropoff, like a sniper should. But a sniper shouldn't be able to 2 shot anyone at 2400hp from across the map.

    The fact that you can die in 1 hit to a kinessa is just stupid. Snipers have their revealing abilities for a reason; They have zoom scopes to shoot from afar and sidearms for follow up dmg. Don't let two sniper shots delete a champ in one second. I honestly can say for a fact that snipers are ruining the game. I can feel my drive to play paladins dwindling daily, and it really makes me sad.

    Also, as a sidenote strix's flashbang lasts too long, or is bugged, because it makes your screen white, then black for 6s or so.

    I like this idea. And it makes haven less valueable vs snipers as well.

    With 1.2k dmg per shot u get 84 dmg reduction per heaven tier. At lvl 3 haven u can negate 252 dmg.

    If the dmg is 1k then haven reduces 70 dmg per rank. At lvl 3 haven u will negate 210 dmg.

    but if we do that we need to buff their survivability and chance to 1v1 in close range if not they will die

    If you're having that much trouble with snipers, then either your positioning sucks, or your flank sucks, or both.

    Snipers are supposed to be weak close range. If a flank gets on them they are supposed to be easy pickings. Right now they can actually kill a flank/escape, especially nessa.

    Yes, and unless it's a last pick the other team gets at least one flank to destroy them. And frequently they succeed. Sometimes a good sniper will dictate the pace of the match in the PPL but more often than not they are not so impactful.

    Snipers are highly counterable because they're relatively stationary and can easily miss a flank sneaking up on them because they're looking through their sites.

    Kinessa is not nearly as good at dealing with snipers as she was, she's been nerfed a couple times in recent patches. She's still good, but not OP.

    Strix is a different story. The buff to Flare (revealing to the entire team) was insane. Even the casters admit it's a constant Cassie ult. That's just ridiculously OP. His sidearm has been nerfed, so that part's not so bad anymore, but that flare needs to be nerfed some more on range and duration (and maybe do something about Unauthorized Use, as well). Either that or just make it a reveal only to Strix again with the current range and duration.

    The devs could always nerf their damage and buff their fire rate to compensate (and maybe give them card options to increase their clip size). Their DPS would be roughly the same, but they would need to land more shots to do the same amount of damage output.

    Cassie and sha arent snipers. Sure they can be played LIKE a sniper , but they are still projectile with no scope system.
