Erik = Slayer , Borg = Tank , Hardy = OP Tank
Hey, firstly I'd like to say this game is amazing! I used to play the game mode last stand on warhammer 40k and I saw this game and figured I'd try it out since I loved that and I've already got my time out of it already and still playing it ! The ladder doesnt really interest me but I would like to do my best on the game while same time having fun. And as far as I can see right now, the only person that could do well would be Hardy.
But let's talk about Hardy in just a moment. After playing mostly all of the characters I feel as though Lil' Erik should actually be a slayer and Borg should actually be a tank and my main reason is this: the life regeneration on Erik's w passively scales poorly and Borg's w passively gives him deflect chance and on active gives him 100% deflect which is AMAZING for being tanky with him later levels. Also, the bleed area damage from Erik's ultimate (r ability) is lovely to melt multiple bosses. If I wanted to tank I'd either play Borg or Hardy, Hardy if I actually wanted to live to see past 30+.
As It is right now and way I see it is, Erik NEEDS some form of ability to give him the true tank feeling that he deserves. I got to wave 40 with a group playing as erik, had 75% armor and 20k hp with any way I could squeeze out more regeneration while keeping a 40% deflect and I would die just as fast as the others, well except the Hardy that would be able to stand up to 3 of the rocket bosses plus the mobs shooting and not even lose any life.
I feel like either addition of more unique items (kind of like how the wonderbox gives % of hp is counted as health regen for example) should be added, or the active ability of the w should be changed to give a huge boost to his health regeneration and movement speed vs actually burning him for life and giving him movement. I find it useful the movement speed but the burn that comes with it just negates any personal healing that he can get. Or, I feel like the active ability of Hardy's w should be nerfed just enough so that its harder to get the 100% armor from it. Like a internal tech diminishing return into the formula for it.
Anyways as the game is right now I will still continue to play as I'm enjoying myself. If you know of a way to make Erik tank enough as it is right now I would love to hear it and what items you built on him :) . I'd love to see more items added to actually use deflect as well since you cannot buy deflect implants.
