So today was the first time ever I failed to complete my CoF run - I ran out of heroes at stage 15. Why? Simple, 7 out 15 stages had 7* Ezios combined with awakened Dokras. Is there a way to prevent this from killing one of your heroes? No, there is no f**king way. Because you cant kill stuff fast enough before Dokras ults from beyond the screen unless you are fully stacked on your energy (and you will not be full on energy all the time), and even then, Ezio dodging the sh*t out of everything screwing a couple of ults completely and you find yourself on half hp all of a sudden taking Dokras sh*t all over you to boot. Naturally someone dies. Every f**king time.
So the point is: Ezio needs to be nerfed to the ground, like hundreds of people were saying to you all this time, and you give him an awakening instead? Are you f**king kidding? This bullshit of Ezio dodging out of Cara's and Ethera's ultimates needs to be fixed yesterday, even better: if you ult with Ethera during Ezio's dodging around animation he actually KNOCKS Ethera OUT OF HER ULTIMATE. What in the actual f**k? Is this some kind of joke?! Also, why the hell Octo is hit able while he does his jumping around and Ezio is not? Are you insane? And don't give me this stupid shite about counters to Ezio, like Arachna and such. Arachna doesn't live past one, maybe two stages, especially with overabundance of Zem these days (don't even get me started on Zem in CoF, this is actually least of the problems for the game). And if there is a tank in front of Ezio Arachna counters balls, she just stands there and does nothing. Basically if you think Ezio is fine - you need to reevaluate your life.
Now we get to awakened Dokras part. This is amazingly broken in CoF. The mere fact of him being absent from the fight means that THE ONLY way you can influence his abilities is by killing everyone else in sub 30 seconds (which is not always possible, also Ezio), and even then he sometimes ults without even showing his face. At this point we all know the amount of damage Dokras dishes out - it is insane, he is able to one-shot a bunch of heroes outright. Without showing up on the battlefield, I remind you.
Now, some scrub may say: "roflcopterz git gud". Well, my under aged friend, as someone consistently staying top 5 at both Arena and Epic Arena for months now (with server merge and sh*t), I can safely say it is you who needs to "git gud", because this situation is clearly a balancing issue and you are a scrub who knows nothing about the game. I eat Ezio and Dokras for breakfast every time I fight in arena, I couldn't care less if they are awakened or not. Every time I see Ezio in arena I chuckle a little and enjoy a free win. But Crucible is a completely different beast and normally I couldn't care less for Ezio alone, but like I said - when paired with Dokras I'm forced either to reset the stage for dozens of times until everyone survives or to sacrifice a hero or two along the way. Especially when these teams appear one after another 7 times in a row.
What is the solution for this? Easy, either nerf the dodges... No, DO NERF EZIO and damage for Dokras ultimate or exclude Dokras from appearing in CoF altogether. Easy. I'll stick to resetting stages a sh*t ton meanwhile, like anyone has time for that, thank you for this tedious bs, Lilith, thank you very much.
Also, while we are all here: this random shop assortment is one hundred percent absolutely STUPIDEST IDEA ever conceived by a human mind. Who ever came up with this idea needs to be fired.
