Was MagStorm nerfed?
No, the issue was Winfinite, according to them. But all they had to do was change Mystique. Which they didn't. They changed both.daibar wrote:simonsez wrote:The only thing is that I could swear that the tile gets placed on an edge more often than dictated by random chance.daibar wrote:A crit nearly half the time it goes off is not bad odds.
That's actually one of the best outcomes as it clusters the purples even tighter. Her countdown on an edge has an excellent chance to crit, as long as it's not in the corner. I posted this in another thread and forgot to migrate it back here:
On the left edge, it automatically collapses into this shape (at least a match-3).
So, if any one of these tiles are purple, you've a 100% chance at a crit.
If instead any of those black tiles are a purple, you've got a line clear. Both blacks are purple => crit. If all tiles are random, you've got at least a 1 - ((6/7)^4* (48/49)) >= 47.1% chance
On the bottom, it collapses into this shape:
Giving you at least a match 3, and 3 spots where a purple makes a crit:
Again, any purple makes a crit 100% of the time, both blacks make a crit 100%, 1 - ((6/7)^3* (48/49)) >= 38.3% chance of a crit
I've had decent success in moving nearby purples into the right position to make a crit. Doesn't happen all the time, but you can definitely increase the odds of chaos working in your favor. A >26.5% chance of making a line clear when the countdown is on the edge isn't too bad either (1 - (6/7)^2)
I seriously don't think she'll get a buff unless it's in terms of a 'fix' where the stun is done after the damage on her purple.Magstorm was never the issue, it was magstique.raisinbman wrote:they're not gonna buff her AOE - look at what they did to Magstorm
if Mystique was the issue nerf her.
There's subtext in what they do.
They could've left Mag alone but they didn't.
Meanwhile, GSBW does the same thing as Mag, yet she remains untouched.
They targetting Mag.
It's obvious they disliked Magstorm as much as Winfinite.
Thusly, we're not going to get Wanda Magstorming (almost) all by herself anytime soon.
