Question - Balanced The good, the bad and the ugly matchups of Balanced

Maybe I'm not on here enough to understand but how can you get a complaining vibe off of let's talk about match ups
Read my post again carefully. I was referring to the vibe that everybody is sick of him talking/complaining about Balanced.

All i see all day, is you complaining about kenshi somehow even when u say you're not, like now.

Its not your fault or anybodies fault man, NRS made a mistake when they gathered all the data for the previous patch, and then suddently decided to add a new variable in the meta changeo it without taking in account what would happen or having no feedback.

all saying is, if the armor meta didn't changed, most of the changes in characters like Kenshi and KL would've made them good characters, but the change happened and they lost a extreme crucial move that helped them stay competitive.

Its not your fault, just move on, try spectral ermac, you might like it.
Believe me, I'm here to scan people's opinions, I don't expect changes at all. And not in the mood to learn a new character.

I love how KL entered here. Lol, just jk.

I have asked for (well deserved) buffs for this variation multiple times. Guess people get tired of it, specially people that comfortably sit behind a well rounded or top tier character. Empathy here sucks. You will get used to it if you are new.

Anyway, I'm not here for this now, only to check what people think. Actually Balanced has a very strong thing that nobody seems to have noticed. But anyway.

Not complaining about the character, just asking people's impressions about how it has evolved.

Would be nice to discuss matchups and strategies about his new version because many matchups approach has changed, but it's really hard to find someone to do it since now I'm convinced nobody plays this variation anymore.
Lol wow, I must really be a hipster like you. Ya made me pick up Fisticuffs (which I still play) and I actually just picked up Balanced a couple days ago cuz fuck possessed! :3

Curious what you think of the Summoner MU, it's definitely in Quan's favour but by how much, do you think?

Possessed vs Summoner is probably a 5-5 though
About Quan, Sorcerer wins by a large margin imo. Definitely a member of the ugly matchups.

Summoner has adv, maybe 6-4 type of advantage. It's funny that best way to play him is corner him.
I don't find many warlocks now to judge but it's probably 5-5.

Damn vro, hadda mess with yo auntie
There's no reason not to use Possessed.

And I LOVE Balanced. It's my #1 above all others main.
But at this stage of the game, you're hindering yourself doing anything else.

If we'd gotten to keep EX RK's armor, we'd be gucci.
But we are not. We are not gucci at all.
I've spent more time in the lab and online this weekend than I ever have before, and this character has NEVER felt as good as he does now. Is he perfect? Fuck no. Is he top tier? SUPER fuck no. But he WORKS THE WAY HE WAS FUCKING INTENDED TO FINALLY, which is all I have been waiting for for the last year and a half.
I don't give two fried eggs worth of fuck what the meta was like before this patch, because literally NONE of it matters. I've been dealing with these godforsaken games and patches and tiers and oh my for five damn years, which is long enough to know the difference between a character that's worth bitching and moaning about and a character that isn't, and at this point, the devs have done all they can do to out the sword back together, and I for one think they did a fucking solid job.
Balanced is in OUR hands now. Enough hand holding and waxing nostalgic. Either put up or die. Even MK9 Sheeva and Kano had Michael Bolton and Beenee Weenies behind them to the end, and those characters were GARBAGE compared to what Balanced is capable of in this meta. Find a better character if it's that depressing, because I really don't see what the hell it is about him that's bad enough to warrant anyone still being salty. Yes, he could've turned out better, but he could've turned out a whole lot worse, too.

tl;dr: I'm taking my sword to NEC, turning my inner Bear Jew up to 100, and bringing home some Nazi scalps. anyone wants to join me or test my blade, I am not a difficult Box to find. I'll be the crazy Puerto Rican with the black nails, the Slipknot t-shirt, and the stuffed monkey in a Tremor costume draped on his shoulder like a pirate's parrot.

I'm the fucking captain now.
:DOGE

That was when there was still hope.

Now, not so much.

Nuking EX RK made every other fix he got pretty much obsolete.

And I was SO FUCKING HAPPY when I made that post.
Like, I remember it. I was fucking stoked that Balanced was finally getting tweaked.
Aaaaaaand then it became apparent over time that it made no sense to keep going.

God did not want Balanced to be a success. *shrug*

"Nuking EX RK made every other fix he got pretty much obsolete"

I really hate to say this, but...

I told you xD

As a dude playing the character for 1,5 years, that fact became obvious at the exact moment of reading the patch notes. Didn't need months to realize. It's good you did in the end.

I hope in the future people understand that sometimes we don't need months of testing to know that something is shit, specially at certain points in the game.

Not to be a complete asshole about it, but it was kinda nice seeing someone have faith Balances could take a win and we could all see that excitement. Unfortunately it was misguided and brought the Kenshi community with plenty of entertainment between you and @DR.Innuendo

This feels so mean and I'm sorry but at least we all know to be skeptical of patch changes

Balanced is good. I still never ever ever ever pick him against any of Scorpion's variations, even Inferno. And Pyromancer can be a pain but it's not too bad for me to deal with.

You're my fan if you can't stop shitposting me.
As former character loyalist I can only tell you one thing about this debacle:
Games are not perfect. It's up to you whether you choose to have fun or damn yourself to suffer.
