Gwenom is a broken, failed experiment.

How can she not have been reworked yet? She is the most useless character I have, no lie. Sure she can hit like a TRUCK but she rarely get the chance to.
1. Web generation. She need webs to excel but her kit almost prevents her from creating webs.
Potential change: let her create webs when her team mates make matches. If a webtiles is destroyed, create a new one.

  1. No match damage. BIG problem. Since she'll deal no match damage most of the time she hides in the back and won't tank damage. This means that she'll likely be your last character standing. This means your only standing character can't deal any match damage and you HAVE to rely on getting lots of red matches to even have a chance.
    Potential change: Just remove this awful passive. Or make her deal double match damage if she is the last one standing. Or make her deal match damage if a a webtile is involved in the match.

I won't use her more this PVE despite her being boosted. She's just so bad.

    Have you tried Gwenom with Chasm and Miles Morales? You don't need her match damage when you have Chasm on your team and MM generates quick Red AP for Gwen's "hit like a truck" feature.

    It's been about 3 months for gwenom. Wasp and banner sucked for more than 5 years. The real surprise would be if she HAD been reworked so quickly.
