So we're simply calling it buff instead of nerf now? [16]

Just wanted to drop a quick thanks - I have a useless unit on my hands now.

It is near impossible to use him with a slow build + immunity set. So all the resources like molas and dozens of equipment conversions to get him near perfect ring and boots are now wasted. Cool. That's what we spend dozens of hours for, isn't it.

I understand SG is wary of nerfing character because everyone will demand selectors. But basically disguising a nerf and calling it a "buff" does not solve this problem. If anything it is dishonest and a slap in the face to anyone who has invested in MA Ken. Honestly a selector is neither the right way to move forward, nor actually enough to compensate for the loss (think of all the highly specific gear). The only way is to revert the 25% CR push on his S2.

As a final note. This being a nerf was not only obvious, but has been made abundantly clear by the community. Going forward with it nonetheless show how much our input is actually valued. 

Some communication with the community if you are actually going to look into this matter and potentially rectify the situation would be appreciated... but who am i kidding...

    its not exatly a nerf just a rebalance instead of making him sit there and wait for his team to die just so your opponent is forced to hit him now he is part of the team he takes his turn does abit of def brake and takes the debuffers focus onto himself allowing you to utilize the other members of your team.

    The fact that the majority of people were extremely unhappy with this announced "buff" is proof that they actually don't care what the community thinks. I know a bunch of people are going to fly in here and start yelling "BUT ER MLKEN IS GOOD GET BETTER GEAR" and that's not the point. The point is, gear is already a huge chunk of this game, resources for building characters and enhancing skills are very limited resources, AND a lot of people selected him for the ML5 event they just did. Now they "changed" him to the point where almost all of the currently built ones are, in fact, useless. Their discord, Reddit, these forums, were full of people telling them, "This is a nerf, please reconsider this" and they just flat out ignored everyone. What's even worse is if you had him built and spent resources on changing/adjusting the gear stats, those are worthless now for his current "recommended" build. Their response being "We appreciate your feedback" and then "but we don't care" sucks.

    It's very stupid from SG to buff him with 30% ER , They think everyone owning Godly gear to make MA.Ken do everything .

    MA.Ken is more Niche now .

    Just fought some defense with MA Ken. He barely changed and didn't have any effect on the fight, was easy to win. 

    That's the result of introducing the idiotic mechanic that is Uncounterable. Heroes like MA Ken, Violet are very mediocre because of it. They don't do well in pve and tehy're far from good enough in pvp.

    Sometimes some balances does not seem so right. Maybe they had another gear or play style in mind. I totally understand you. I still remember when they changed how Achates will perform in auto. Apparently they focused in the cleanse part in S3 and forgot that was the main heal for her. So now she waste that skill even for just 1 minor debuff.

    Maybe after some time, if they see that is making things worse, they could change it again. I hope they will do that.

    This company is very slow and deliberate with all changes.  This is clearly a bad change, and the disheartening part is how they give the community a two-weeks heads up, and during this time, the vast majority told them to reconsider the changes--make them better, more impactful, make him more sustainable and less vulnerable to getting one shot.  
    Instead they proceed with this birdbrain, half-assed buff, while ignoring the community sentiment.

    And on the flipside, they went ahead and buffed an already impactful, popular and well used unit in OP Sigret, with an ability that makes her punish all units that use or give shields, not just FCC.  I understand wanting to shake up the meta off from FCC, but this punishes all shield units like Diene.  Furthermore, why not grant this ability to lesser used ML5s that are currently in the garbagecan instead of Overpowered-cigarette-old-maid-reject-kise?  

    These balance changes indicate that the development team is BOTH DUMB AND LAZY. 

    I HATE IT.

    I think a cool idea would be to change his S2 to a "Crit hit gives 25% CR push with a 25% chance to Activate Dragon Flame after using Knockout" or something along those lines. reality is, counter heroes are a bygone meta. Then he actually becomes a swift martial artist. not a "punch me if you if you dare and i"ll lifesteal ya" hero.
