      the patch is out on xbox so if you have xbox you have all of the changes
    2. xKhaoTik
      You would think someone from Xbox would’ve at least started a thread with some of the changes but w/e
    3. foxof42
      Thanks for putting this here. So just wondering then, does this mean Cold's ex bubble freezes faster? Because that honestly would seem like a buff...

    6. xKhaoTik
      On hit of what
    7. Superman64
      Sorry I didn't test everything but deadshot and blue beetle. Gotta say the deadshot changes are very noticeable not saying it's super slow or bad just it's noticeably slower. Blue beetle only thing I could tell is db1 has less scaling but as far as that idk since I rarely play BB.

      Just judging by the notes, it seems like Red Hood could have been over nerfed. Firestorm and Scarecrow (we need to see how good this teleport is) could be over buffed. Cyborg will also be much better with a good wakeup

      nah scarecrows tele is just a little bit better its not like raiden mb tele or anything. Supergirl is indisputable top 1 now though.
    12. gam224
    13. Flamelurkr
      Sg, black Adam, flash, maybe beetle?
    14. Eldriken
      Scarecrow now has a 5f teleport? Am I fucking reading that right?

      My impressions from what is in th OP as of now:

      Scarecrow and Firestorm should’ve
      received ZERO buffs. What the fuck?

      Supergirl was already number 1 imo because she is/was the only character that can fight(and comfortably might I add) every character. Now that’s just more solidified. Really surprised nothing happened to her tbh

      So far it looks like Batman and Red Hood received good changes, nice job NRS

      Deadshot definitely got the short end of the stick. No reason to play him w/ Fate in the game now. Fate will now be the best zoner free and he can actually anti air.

      Catwoman totally cheesed out lmao

      Swamp Thing, Joker, and Cyborg seem like pretty legit characters now, that’s very cool.

      I don’t necessarily think Captain Cold needed to be touched but that looks fine.

      Blue Beetle fine sure doesn’t really matter.

      Poison Ivy’s change doesn’t seem like a huge deal, I don’t play Ivy but I woulda probably rather had the D2 not be ass lol. But this is good, Ivy was already pretty good imo, just not the greatest.

      Black Adam just bamboozled his way back in to top 5 lmao.

      I think the new top dogs are gonna be Supergirl, Catwoman, Black Adam, and Fate(who nobody is talking about, Fate is probably top ten rn).

      I like this patch, I just wouldn’t have touched Deadshot’s zoning and instead got rid of his 50/50 so you couldn’ve been rewarded for working your way in. I woulda actually done something to Catwoman, Supergirl, and Adam. But its alright, the game will be better than it is now by a little bit and ig that’s the goal.
    17. Flamelurkr
      I think everything about your post is spot on, but bb might be a wild card tbh
    18. Doctor Angel

      Joker being legitimately better is a fucking gaaaaaaaaame changer for me.
      Like, he wasn't even close to IJ1 terrible, but now he can actually compete.

      This is better news than I thought I was gonna get.

      AND Scarecrow's Teleport's been buffed? Stahp.

      I was totally prepared for this patch to disappoint the shit out of me, but I was wrong.

      All things considered, these are very fair sounding top tiers that don't necessarily dominate anyone for the most part.
    20. Peckapowa
      scarecrow can react to projectiles now - that is such an insanely huge buff....

      So I have not played since the patch but I agree with most of the changes.

      Changing Cold I am not sure on tho, but I get why they did it. As a cold player I agree that a lot of his MUs were really lopsided, either he wins well or loses badly. But if all of the changes turn out to make him less viable he will probably go back to being kinda useless.

      Also I don't get how they look at cold and be like 'this is a little much' and for SG like 'she's fine, sure'.
      The changes to Batman seem a little much imo he is stupid, yes, but definitely beatable
      HellblazerHawkman and KIllaByte like this.
    22. KIllaByte
      it's worth noting that Swamp Thing's BF3 also goes under mid projectiles.
    23. Knoterror
      Scarecrow is fine. Teleport is still punishable and it was basically useless at high level anyway. In a game with d1 true combos? Only a few projectiles in the game have bad enough recovery for teleport to be a problem for in the first place. It was primarily used to get in for trait damage to win rounds. That's really it.

      I'm happy with trait changes too. Feels fair to everyone.
