The purpuse of elite pushes should be to prevent players from constantly hugging elites. However, more often than not it seems like elites will just walk up to you and push you for no reason, even if you actively try to keep your distance. Given that pushes are near instant and interrupt ALL of your actions (even if playing with a class that has a “heavy attacks can’t be interrupted” passive), including healing and reviving, pushes are one of the most annoying mechanics in the game right now. I made a compilation video of the times I got pushed in the last few days. Elites are waaay to eager to push players. Here’s what I suggest:
- Elites should only push players if players have moved too close to them. No more walking to us and pushing us for no reason
- Players should need to hug the elite for more than a microsecond before the elite feels the need to push them. Right now it’s near instant.
- (Maybe) reduce the radius of the push and the distance at which players are allowed to be without triggering the push. I don’t know if this change would make elite pushes too irrelevant and I actually like the idea of not being allowed to hug elites all the time, so take this last point with a grain of salt
