OK Nibbs nerfs has been in effect for a while now, time for feedback.

Imo, Nibbs used to be a B-tier naut, about as good as rae imo. Now she feels more like C-tier. Wherever you want to place her, feels to me like she lost a whole lot.

Flame burst does not hit as hard anymore and is way harder to use on mobile nauts. Even something like punishing a pushing lonestar is really hard to pull off now that flame doesn't hit instantly from the center. Nauts pretty much have to run into her to get hit by the dot. This is a major nerf without compensation.

As mentioned before there are no more unexpected acrobatics either, moving flame is gone. Arguably a minor nerf, to me she feels way more rigid.

I'm kinda thinking about switching mains, been trying out snork gunk alot but he has his own weird issues.

Intentionally removing techs was a mistake.

Are you perhaps talking about the downwards breath bug?

If you expect me to read back 4 pages of discussion you'd be incorrect.

Can't be helped that your body seeps semantics from all their pores

Nibbs is still good, she was b-tier last update because of a few bugs and now she's back to c-tier which is fine because in a pub scenario she's one of the best lategame nauts due to high low-cd damage potential as well as survivability in tarot cards fast healing and firebreath shield

Can you provide any reason why this is a good thing? Balance-wise that is. I kinda get it if the devs are *removed* and have to erase every tech they didn't think of themselves. Otherwise they took a naut that already didn't perform that well in the higher leagues and nerfed her a whole tier.

Only good reason I can think of is if she was unhealthy for the format, which I don't think she was. It's not like Nibbs is the sole naut in the way of Yoolip, and solo pushing nauts probably need more counters not less imo.
