grunty gets unlimited ult speed buff upon picking up the spell damage amp rune. Happy abuse :)

 

It's just the animation that loops indefinitely no? I don't think he gets the actual buff. We had issues making the animation loop properly. My bad. Will fix asap.

New animations are great gj jessika and adam

 

Really glad to hear that. <3

 

With Maar especially I tried to stay as true as possible to Whale's descriptions of the destruction spells. Hope he likes them as I was a big fan of his Maar redesign, and just wanted to give it a little more bang.

If only Adam had sufficient funds to build a computer to play AoS to play test his changes! Woe are us!

Currently my computer is working. Turned on yesterday and may quit on me again soon for another couple months. But I didn't think to test that combination of wizzy and grunty ult.

To be fair, I solo playtest after Adam's (or any) changes frequently before release. But the Grunty one just slipped.

Let me succinctly destroy lucky's current design:

 

Don't at unnecessary pure output RNG to the game, especially to a system that has very little to begin with.

 

You can easily remedy this if you think for a few seconds.

 

 

Also, that vorpal w line.

Don't you think it would be more constructive (not to mention less condescending), if you just point out the flaw and easily alleviate it with an explanation of your remedy?

I pointed out the flaw: lucky is pure output RNG. I'm not going to tell you how to solve it...

 

For clarification, output RNG occurs when the end product of an event is RNG, whereas more desirable input RNG is when the event the player must act around is RNG. This is superior because we don't want the players actions to be nullified by a roll of the dice, but we do want to prompt the player with different events that lead to the player taking different actions to resolve or capitalize on these events

 

Other rune effects follow input RNG. They prompt the player to capitalize on a brief buff in order to gain a permanent advantage. Lucky simply gives them the advantage. Mendy also treads on this a bit, but is not entirely output based.

 

Thus when designing in the rune space, I would look for ways to prompt the player into taking specific and distinct actions compared to other runes.

From my perspective, Lucky is simply a bounty rune without the exp benefit. A mineral compensation for the roamer or midlaner that alleviates some of the pressure to go kill things as a roamer (you can take more time to plan out or set up a gank) or a means for a pressured midlaner to increase his income where any of the other runes wouldn't be able to turn the tables in his advantage significantly enough.

The reason this is not sufficient is simply because the existence of any rune already creates this effect. Hence DotA separates their bounty runes from their buff runes

That alone says a lot more than anything else you just typed. Thanks anyway.

I think there's more wide reasoning to bounty runes being seperate in dota, a different discussion entirely. And like I pointed out at the end of my last post, action runes can only do so much for you and may very well not translate into actual value.

 

To clarify, action/real runes prompt you to do something while you have them, the lucky rune affords you time do 'nothing' (stay zoned, hide in a bush).

Wizzy is... interesting altho lucky is bad idea. If you want to keep it there needs to be some rework how you pick up runes. For example "channel time" 5-10 seconds so you can actually play around it. But thers probobly much better ideas this is just on top of my head atm. However its better to just rework lucky for the reasons lame said.
