When did this sub become so trash?

>Which champion is your favorite?
Willo! Willo a cute, CUTE! I love Willo!

>How much money have you spent on Paladins?
$20 Founder's Pack + $5 on a skin while I was drunk.

>Which Paladins player makes you afraid?
z1unknown, or really any streamer with lots of viewers.

>Who is your favorite /palg/ poster?
There's one poster who welcomes SMITEfriends and Tribesfriends and also tries to get people to stop fighting. I'm convinced this is all one poster. That's my favorite poster.

>Describe your first kiss in detail.
Spin the bottle. I was young. She was a year older than me.

>Which champion would you marry?
None. I'm a lone wolf.

>What change would instantly make you quit Paladins?
Whenever the game is fully released and no longer in beta. That's just means Hi Rez is ready for the game to die. That's how Tribes died.

>roaming emotes
oh god we're actually gonna get hotline ying aren't we

Hello, mojiposter. I was wondering if maybe you can vary your image from time to time. Maybe build up a collection like yingposter. I'll answer your questions now.

Mojiposter, why are you always asking about kissing?

>Which champion is your favorite?
I don't really have any, it depends on my mood. Right now I'm digging Drogoz.

>How much money have you spent on Paladins?
0€, I would think of it when the game gets out of beta lol

>Which Paladins player makes you afraid?
Every fucking sniper mains especially these days where they are nearly unflankable. You just know you're not going to have fun when you see the fourth autistic Kinessa main who played her for 340 hours.

>Who is your favorite /palg/ poster?
Fernandoposter ;_;

>Describe your first kiss in detail.
It was back in Kindergarden, a girl kissed me but I freaked out and I slapped the shit out of her.

>Which champion would you marry?
Moji is the only character that could be wife material when she's an adult. The others are just extra whores, waifu bait or just bland.

>What change would instantly make you quit Paladins?
Removing all kind of depth and making it nu-OW

>too lazy to check, but probably just around 100~. bought the founders pack, 4000 crystals for 40-60$ or something (forgot the exact price) on last year's summer sale, frontline pack, and vip pack.

So you are one of THOSE people huh

some people just play really casually like the guys who only play Paladins when Fortnite is on maintenance.

Playing video games in general is a waste of time. The change makes it so that you don't have to treat it as a second job.

You can argue that now core players have less reason to play, but forcing people to play or else miss out on limited crystals is a pretty predatory incentive.

>Which champion is your favorite?

Actual P2W. Unbound was retarded but that was going to be changed dramatically one way or the other, I stuck around through that. Depressed for a while though.

Yeah not arguing against any of that,
I'm just saying that a gold chest for completing the monthly limit of dailies is acceptable, sucks because they're "taking away" the diamond reward but either it was a bait to get people to do quests at the first roll out all along or the person who let that go through was taken out back and shot.

Torvald might be kinda trashy now, he didn't need damage nerf.

p2w coming back

They were thinking that Damba should stop being picked so they can shill their new and improved Support when it comes out.

Why isn't Maeve in the OP grrr

Aiming your heals is too confusing for new players, better put damba into obscurity.

they also gutted his health

I can hear that fucking twitch song just by looking at this picture.

Fuck they killed the best most skill based healer in the game.

what the fuck

sorry no aim allowed, now buy new Seris skin.

Unlucky for Mal, HiRez are monsters.

>Crowd Control reduction cards were previously only reducing the duration of Stuns. They now work like Resilience and will also reduce the effectiveness of Knockups, Knockbacks, and the duration of Slows. This change affects the following cards:
It's actually kind of pathetic it took them this long to even do this.

I hate Seris so much and she's in every fucking game.

I suspect we're heading into a very flank-focused meta with Zhin, Moji, Androxus and Evie all being fairly strong, and Torvald enables flanks, so even if he isn't particularly strong himself he'll still be picked/banned.

heh, this is gonna get either annoyingly interesting, or retardedly stupid

give me a (you) when pts is up

it is already stupid

Well when you spend 5 months with an autistic hamburger at the helm of the project details tend to get skipped.

does nega-mojiposter only want hugs and cuddles instead of kisses

I'm surprised it took this long honestly.

Blame HiRez for continuously nerfing the rest of the supports, for a while you basically never saw her. Damba/Jenos. EVERY.SINGLE.GAME

Yingposter is a janitor. Nega-yingposter has been defeated before his tyranny could even begin.

Makes NO sense.
read the first line of the OP

Anyone else bitter about losing their customization, a handful of the skins they owned, and then seeing the aesthetic turning into something totally unoriginal and boring instead of advancing to be its own thing?

I can't be the only one who cares about this stuff, right?

Thats just team games, stack with nerds or figure out how to solo carry.
Nando can carry you to diamond though, won't lie.

Forgot pic.

>Makes NO sense.
It does to double digit IQ plebbitors which unanimously support the decision. We're the only paladins forum that even remotely hates what they've done.

I have been bitter since the announcement. They couldn't even fucking WAIT for the player numbers to go up or even stabilize before they fucked shit up again. If I knew their UI excuse was LITERALLY TO MAKE THE OVERWATCH UI I would have derided their fucking incompetence even more.

>>Which champion is your favorite?

>>Which champion would you marry?
>>What change would instantly make you quit Paladins?
It already happened, it was unbound, but I came back when it was removed.

It was so that they reuse the generic Chink splash art to be the portraits in the loading screen. They're going to start selling the same things they sell in Smite. Pedestals, loading screen portraits, loading screen backgrounds, etc.

I think it's a terrible decision and I don't even have many skins. It's going to retroactively curse all future skins and severely hurt player originality in the visual department. Everyone will just be the same based on whatever skin they pick, and there's less reason for people to get skins in general if you can do far less with them.
Can anyone even tell what parts on these new skins would potentially clip or require a "change" to the system? That would be a fun game, there might be enough images of them by now.

It truly is sad to see people still intent on attempting to harm the love of others through ridiculous slander.
Pay that lost soul from before no mind, he does not speak for me and does not speak for anyone else. My heart only wishes to love her in the most loving and pure manner I can possibly muster; do not be fooled by any claim to the contrary.

No I don't have autism.

>no spoilers

nice try yingimposter

Fernando is best played as a beefy bully that uses his shield to protect himself as he retreats, and not someone who shields others.

>They couldn't even fucking WAIT for the player numbers to go up or even stabilize before they fucked shit up again
This is the real kicker. They couldn't even pretend for a moment that they actually learned from the Unbound fiasco. It's a shame that the wool got pulled so easily over the eyes of everywhere else, but it seems to always be the case with shit like this, things get ruined because idiots don't know any better and can't take a moment to actually learn or think. Well, at least the balance changes seem mostly ok, but that should be a given.

The only thing worse than the fucking ying faggot are the people that try to defend it or copy it (I use it because I'm pretty sure it has no genitalia)

I wish they would have announced this stuff in advanced so I could have uninstalled sooner

Why do you care about UI outside of gameplay?

i disagree mojiposter is much worse and lianposters are worst of all

i like mojiposter

Is it even possible to not think of elves as sluts?

Attached: elves lewd.png (1291x443, 213K)

maybe if they were ugly like dwarves or hideous like ruckus

Giving every support champ the same health is fucking retarded when their kits and viability are widely different.

There's some retarded brainlet willofag right now that is happy her old voice is back and doesn't care about literally anything else happening with the game

Replace moji with maeve, if you don't think maevefags are a problem you are objectively and subjectively wrong

braindead healer now has more healing output than the most skillful healer, think about that.

Everything about the gameplay is framed, represented and demonstrated through the UI. This is the same for every single game. Only short sighted morons still use that kind of argument.

The UI inside the matches is important, the main menu and loading screens aren't as long as they work.

If you have never been turned off a game by ugly, generic UI then you must have not played many games. Say whatever you want about how paladins used to look at least the main menu wasn't DIRECTLY COPYING OVERWATCH
