I haven't played this game for years cause of school. Derpl is my favourite character and an underrated character. I love playing him. I came back playing today and so disappointed with his nerf cause his grid trap is delayed. The heck. You won't see much players play Derpl but he still gets nerf. What's the hate. Alot of things have been downgraded from Derpl but for his grid trap to be delayed is just mess up. I hope they changed it back.

I main derpl as well but this change happened a long time ago. At that time derpl was extremely overbearing and I could win the majority of my matches with him even though I have an overall win percentage of 40%. The nerf was necessary as he just had little counterplay with so much of the nauts cast.

How much a naut is played has little to do with how good they are. Currently dizzy and snork are OP as hell but few people play them because they aren't the most satisfying to win with.

I completely agree with you BlueFlash.
I too was extremely disappointed.
Apparently it was done to tone Derpl down on Starstorm, which I think was a stupid decision. The better solution would have been to give a shield when using the portals

Derpl has nothing on a good Penny, Leon etc. anymore.
Can only beat bad players now.

i thought it was more because he was nearly unapproachable for melee characters. the delay gives them a moment where they can get some damage in
