I know I know, he got nerfed and such, but a lot of people still consider him to be too strong in the right hands. I totally agree with that.

It should be easy enough to disable him when the leaderboard reset happens. Just make him custom-game only for the moment and try to fix the problems with him before leaving him to the newly resetted leaderboard

Thing is, rocket can entirely be 'fixed' with number changes, would take one small afternoon. I'd think that's the better option. Just get Ronma to go through with the changes.

Well they've already failed that once, and I don't expect attempt #2 to fix what's broken, so I'm on board with disabling too.

Also banning everyone still using him now, but that's just me.

:aylaroll: You shouldn't ban people for choosing a character, that's on the developers to fix if they're overpowered.

Additionally, as a sidenote and not meant directly towards you in anyway, please no one report people JUST for playing rocket; this is not only counterproductive but can also get you in trouble for reporting people that are abiding by community guidelines and ethics.

Maybe you shouldn't ban people for picking a character this broken. But they should still BE banned.

Banning 'Nauts until they are fixed makes no sense at any rate; how do you test the changes without playing the 'Naut? Unban them for the next patch? What if the changes are even worse, somehow.

This is Ronimo we are talkain't about. Better we at least suffer at the hands of Commander Rocket for a few weeks so we actually know what the problem is, instead of just harping to the same tune constantly.

See also my response in that thread as it applies to this one.

Perhaps even more now, actually.

You are joking right? You realize that they could easily make another beta that balances Rocket by taking suggestions from players, testing those changes, and then when Ronimo and the beta players agree on the changes they can put him back. And this goes for any other OP naut as well (Smiles)
