We need to talk about Martial Artist Ken [13]

I want to start off by saying this, Martial Artist Ken is nerfed, period. Let me give you the reasons why.

  1. 25% CR Push **
    1. When his S3 is active, and if a critical hit is made, he pushes himself by 25%. The downside to this is his immunity, he loses it turn one. Previously, his kit was to solely only counter, because of his immunity, losing it also means losing his kit. Even if he takes turn 1, and grants himself attack buff, his problem are debuffers right after. If he takes turn 1 before the enemy debuffer, he's guaranteed to die.

  2. ER/DPS Build
    1. While testing the ER/DPS build on him, the one thing that gave a red alarm was his low attack. Even if he countered, he wasn't able to punish DPS units, meaning he wasn't able to one shot them. Another downside are pure debuffers, characters whose kits are supposed to debuff. He either doesn't have enough ER to resist them or they either just soulburn their debuff. 
  3. Pure ER Build
    1. This build is the worst, his health is completely gone. 200+ ER just to resist pure debuffers, but cannot sustain against bruisers or DPS units. 

In summary, the 25% CR completely destroys his kit. Even if he sustains, the 25% CR increase will make him lose his immunity, thus causing him to get debuffed. The hybrid build is a jack of all trades, but a master at none, that is the best analogy I can give for the 2nd build. He'll resist low debuffers, but not pure debuffers. He'll sustain against DPS units, but he won't be able to kill them. The final build is a joke, don't actually build it. (My first build is the original build before the "buff")

EDIT: I love this character a lot, and it saddens me what they did to him.

    i mean sure if you build ER/DPS without any dps of course he wont do any dmg.
    and making people soulburn to land a debuff instead of using it to wipe your entire team is huge.

    I think there are 2 levels of resist build, just like u said, heavy debuffer and soft debuffer,  I think the optimal build for now is ER for soft debuffer like tsurin or blind from riolet or arby, so around 150 er is enough, free 30% that means 120%, it still a lot of stats, but I think that's the best build for now

    Would have preferred if they gave his ult extend buff durations instead of gurantee crit

    your ER/DPS build sucks... in this build he has high atk, high def, decent hp and high ER

    agreed. and since he's here to stay SG should've offered us the chance to reclaim our molas, catalysts, etc on the very first day the nerf came out. Cdom was completely recalled without any functional changes and this guy was straight up nerfed for no reason. SG stole the time and resources the vast majority of ken players had sunk into him and the longer SG waits to do the right thing about this, the more valid demands for selectors become because we deserve interest on those stolen resources. The community asked in a largely unified voice for SG not to go through with this nerf but they did anyway in spite of everyone's wishes so this whole situation s*cks *ss for no good reason.

    SG says they listen to their players but the facts seem to clearly indicate they don't
