Am I the only one who feels like this guy is AWFUL?
i think he has a place. If rangers weren't overpriced he'd be in a better place.
Also - should he stealth?
I think that if nothing else he needs an increase in rate of fire. His shot is weak and he has like a 20s ROF. He's literally the weakest hero we have by a whole order of magnitude.
His attack does a decent amount of damage when he fires, though his ROF is slow even after using an ability. I feel like they really need to buff his passive if they want him to feel like a real snpier, and actually be a worthy choice compared to other Elites.
The other problem is he requires a lot of micro to even come close to the same level of use as someone like Macha. You have to spam his Long Shot multiple times to do decent damage, while with Macha its as simple as Q, aim, W, Q, repeat. Not to mention his teleport is also slow and rarely useful.
I think he needs at least a partial rework. He isn't fulfilling the role he thematically is supposed to, and he just doesn't seem to have a place in your Elite lineup. Kyre is already stretching reasonable amount of micro required to be impactful, imo, but even he is still good when he's auto-attacking and passively supporting your melee units with his crits. If anything a lower cost elite shouldn't need so much babysitting.
