Skins

Alright, just gonna list the skins I like...not that anyone cares XD
I'm undecided on Hera, and I know lots of people probably love the Nem skin, but it's too Candy Crushy for me. Yuck.


Project Olympus

Various changes, but the main ones of concern, which are good IMO:
  • Ranked bans increased by 2 on all ranked modes.
  • Reduced Queue time for Ranked Conquest from 9 to 7 minutes, with a possibility of going down even more.
  • Quicker draft lobby...pick time decreased from 30s to 20s, ban time decreased from 30s to 15s, and total bank time increased from 30s to 40s.

Whew...so yeah...don't like the Arthurian items, some interesting god changes, not sure I like all the item changes, but some are good. Mixed bag.

It's actually a pretty big buff...with CDR, gets his shield down to around 6ish seconds. But yeah...still not enough.

Ok. He went from D tier to C- tier. Still not enough to make him viable.

Relic dagger buff is also a nerf to Odin becomes it means phantom has lower cooldown

Yes but which support buys relic dagger to use with phantom? I've only seen relic dagger in tank builds that spam blink rune (odin, xing, cerb, etc).

No way, I don't buy that.

Odin has a unique ability to, if they're worried enough, FORCE people to spec into Phantom Veil (and if they don't, more power to Odin and his ult if he times it properly). If the enemy Support gets it, they're not getting one of Heavenly Wings, Belt of Frenzy, Magic Shell, etc. If the squishy is scared enough, they will only have one of Purification Beads or Aegis Amulet.

If the enemy specs into Relic Dagger themselves to get more uses of Phantom Veil, this is also possibly a minor win, as it takes up a slot that they could use to get a more offensive, defensive, or utility item to suit their needs. Basically, they're getting this just to counter one ult from one god. How is that a nerf?

It sure as hell aint a buff. This man needs way more than some "indirect buffs"
