I should have known after playing the gears of war franchise for so many years. While Epic games always succeeds in delivering great looking games, they are no good with fixing them. The never did fix all the bugs in their first Gears of War game and now we have Paragon, a MOBA which apparently they know nothing about.
After looking at the forums and seeing all the complaints about the last update, I should have listened to those complaints. The players had part of it right. What they have done to this game is just beyond terrible. If you play anything besides a melee hero in this game, you will die and die a lot. The melee characters just attack whenever they want, without fear of reprisal because they can just run away. They have better base speed than all the ranged heroes and there are no speed items in the game.
They just go up and dive towers and destroy them, while you are firing away at them. Then after they finish the tower, they finish you, because you cannot run away from them. Every ranged hero in the game usually comes out of games with a negative kill/death ratio, because wards don’t matter when they can just run up to you and hit ya a couple of times and that is it. You go sit for another minute contemplating just what you did wrong.
Fact is, the flaw is not you, it is the game design. All anyone has to do is sit in the hero section 5 minutes and see that every ranged hero is slower. That is ass backwards. The ranged heroes all wear less armor,why are they slower? I have never seen this lame of a thing, in ANY other MOBA. How well do you think you will do against any foe that has pretty much the same range by jumping, has more armor, more speed, and more powerful attacks? You will die a lot!
Unlike GOW, this game is absolutely no fun if you like to play a character that requires a little skill. Aiming requires skill. Running up to a foe and beating on them until they die, a child can do. This is absolutely the worse MOBA I have ever played. This game may still be in closed beta, but it is nowhere even close to where it should be by now.
I have deleted the game knowing Epic’s track record for fixing games. I truly feel sorry for all those who paid money for this game and are only now, beginning to see that Epic is really shorthand for EPIC FAIL.
Need further proof that Epic does not listen to customers and fix issues in their games? Here is a post on Reddit where people complained about melee heroes chasing them down and killing them.- https://www.reddit.com/r/paragon/comments/4ayj5f/whats_everyones_first_opinion/
It is beyond stupid that they have known about this all along and have not fixed it. I am sorry, if I am running away and not attacking them, I should be going much faster than them constantly attacking me. Oh well, just chalk it up to more lost income by a video game company. Is it no surprise so many are failing?
Until I type again…
