    Flankers Balancing 1- Lex

    When I need to start talking about lex..I mean where should I start. Autoaim ability,high accurancy and big projectile size and also his mobiity ability is kinda meh. Here is my idea how to make lex being viable for competitive.


    1. Change the weapon style:

    Since OB57 his weapon got reworked which actually did not fix Lex at all. Buff his damage to 650 every 0.6 seconds. However the old attack speed (0.7s) was pretty slow. To compensate with the attack speed 650 dmg instead of 680. He and Androxus were better without the semi automatic weapon so I would just recommend to remove that. Lex is meant to be a duelist and deals high burst damage up to mid range but not a spamming nightmare in low tier games.

    2. Hitbox-Fixes

    The reason it is so easy to shoot with him besides his attack speed is the hitbox of the bullets .It is too big and needs to get changed like makoas anchor size. It would basically be the same move.
    [B]

    3. Rework In Pursuit, Retribution and adjust Combat Slide

    First of all In Pursuit. Auto aim abilities should not exist in a hero shooter game and lower the skill floor drastically. Retribution is basically useless. The cooldown is really high (30 seconds) and it autolocks a random enemy. Combat Slide Needs some tweaks as well.
    Rework Idea: Remove Retribution and move the ability idea to In Pursuit (RMB) It will now lock on an enemy and increase his attack speed for a limited time as long its active.The cooldown would be much lower now maybe like 14 seconds and the duration maybe 6 seconds ->make it channeled like evies ice block. His Q will be renamed in "Hands Of Justice" It will have an similar animation like his ult but just a 800 damage shot (AOE) . Make combat slide a bit more smooth. The whole animation looks weird. Otherwhise it is fine just that one thing makes it meh.

    4. Rework his talents:

    Discovery: Now deals 25% more damage on your revealed target by In Pursuit
    (The talent itsself got overused since his reveal was permanent with the changes its fine)
    The Law Won:Hands of Justice now is direct damage and its projectile is faster but has a 1.5 seconds
    delay
    Death Hastens:The Law now always deals 100% damage of the enemies health but is no longer
    autolocked and only hits 1 target
    Heroism: A stable talent which could work in certain situations where CC might be a problem for Lex

    5.Change his cards to compensate:

    Fortitude: Using Hands of Justice heals you for {75|75}% health

    Inescapable: Activating In Pursuit grants you {5|5}% Movement
    Speed

    Keen Sight: Increase the duration of In Pursuit by {5|5}seconds

    Assail: Reduce the cooldown of Hands of Justice by {0.5|0.5}seconds

    However this is just an idea of mine in order to make Lex more viable. He is not like Evie or Maeve with high vertical mobility. With the weapon change it should bring him in line with hitscan champions but with the removal of the auto aim he shouldnt be able to frustrate players in lower tiers anymore. The whole point is making him being more skill required like it is suppose to work.

    Ehh I've seen Better Lex Re-works. I suggest keeping Retribution as its pretty unique and a cool method of getting credits, Also is your "Hand of Justice" Just a weaker Lian Presence. I mean this would be a straight nerf to the character.(and he isn't even that strong to begin with)

    You should probably learn how a champion's weapon works before making balance suggestions. Lex is hitscan, not projectile.

    First of all read carefully what i wrote. The Q ability is suppose to be AOE dmg and even with the talent reworked it would ve been projectile.So before telling me to learn stuff read correctly.

    creo que lex esta bien como esta ahora, ademas lex no es un campeon con proyectiles,, sus disparos tiene el mismo hitbox que viktor,tyra,vivian, andro, khan, jenos, etc...

    Once more. I am not dumb I know Lex is a hitscan champion. When i said projectile size i meant the size of his bullets. Dont take every single little thing so serious lol.

    And you should probably learn to read carefully what he wrote, instead of talking nonsense. And yeah semi automatic needs to be removed immediatly, if you want andro and lex to be viable again in competitive or elsewhere.

    All I mind about lex is his auto-aim and retribution... RNG like this shouldn't be a thing at all.

    Reduce the bonuses etc but make it so you can chose your target or entirely rework the ability.

    Both auto-aim and RNG with big impact shouldn't be a thing in a game that wants to be an eSports game.

    yea..exactly a flanker doesnt randomly attack somebody he needs to know who to attack and when. Retribution is just bad and makes Discovery only viable unlike the rest. His kits are one sided and boring. Besides the reveal all he does is spamming his shots, it is nothing more than that. Frustrating for lower elo players and bad for lex himself in higher elos.

    Lex is like a TDM champion by design. His kit gets hurt by strategy. That's just dumb.
