    Atlas damage seems OP



    Atlas did almost as much damage as Dredge. Seems a bit much.

    17 minutes. I don't like the weapon either so far. You see the strix was
    10k above the dredge. Me and makoa while dead more aren't close to his number. Neither was Khan on his team.

    it also depends a lot what each person is doing
    if for exemple koa is flanknig taking risks all the time spending time waiting to regen, then he'll have less damage than the atlas being healed all the time always in the fight
    it also depends who attacks/defend, the situation, map, playstyle and many stuff
    stats aren't that relevant
    you can have a 200k damage viktor who had done worse than a viktor with 120k for exemple
    what i don't like with atlas is that 900 burst on squishy is really tough to deal with, oh and his broken shield
    i actually am fine with the rewind thingy even if it can be op when one tries to flee and you send him backward from when it comes from, but like in solo it's not that great
    in premade however it's probably rediculously op since atlas basically transform any situation into 4 or 3v5

    It's not uncommon that tanks have the same damage than DDs. Old Nando could do it, Koa can do it, Ruckus of course, Ash, even tanks like Inara I have seen doing max damage.

    Atlas seems quite complicated to play. Recently one saved me from a Skye bomb which 100% would have killed me. Needs very good situational awareness and team play. The gun is good though no doubt.

    atlas is so hard to land a hit on his charge shot that fire at max the only good on him is to fire at mid to get a boos dmg but his just easy to get killed at CQC his only good as a sniper support tank not a CQC one.

    This is basically a combo response among other things. Sorry if it's all over the place.

    Here's the match: https://paladins.guru/match/823666650 BTW, Paladins Guru has a bug - I banned Terminus and Tyra.

    The map was Ascension Peak. It's a close quarters point so Atlas didn't have to charge the weapon during the point battle.

    I'm one of the people that says "results not numbers"... This is a good example of that. We won 4-2 even though they did 540k damage to our 370k. It's also a case of don't give up. We were getting hammered pretty badly in the beginning.

    - Resonance Ying IS viable in ranked - 11k/minute - very good. Not the first time I've been happy with a Res Ying.

    - Seen people complaining about the "100k shielding in a single match". Two of us exceeded it.
    Why doesn't Atlas Stasis Field show as shielding?

    I've done more damage than both teams with Inara. It usually happens when I'm solo front line against two or everyone was below par for some reason.

    I find as a solo front line Atlas has a hard time of it but when combined with another he can be rough to go against.

    The setback can be real nasty. The second chance is ridiculous too - instant full health. I've even used it to come back after being blown off the map. The Ult too. In a casual match we were near capturing - I banished a few of them off the point - Objective captured. This brings up a question. If I had banished them while any of them were on the point would that have blocked the capture?

    Anyway, as far as the damage being OP I guess I'll have to see if this becomes a common occurrence.

    his close range damage is way to easy to hit and his movement speed seems up their as well. He has awesome skills that while take some thinking to use they are flat out awesome. Other tanks have ok skills and dont do this much damage.

    Barik does 500 damage a shot and you can blow his shield down in under a second with recker
    Atlas has a shield you cant break and does 700 damage. Not a pefect example of the imbalance but his skills are way to good to have that much damage output.

    Probably needs a speed reduction on fire
    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...
