Torpid's Elite League Season #4 Balance Gambit

Postby Torpid » Thu 11 Jul, 2019 12:04 am

With my previous winning of Elite League Season #2 & #3, as well as a flawless group stage in elite league season #1 until I had to laeve the league due to being busy IRL, I want to do something different for Elite League Season #4 and potentially give others a good chance of beating me.

Specifically, I would like the community to choose my heroes for me for this league. With the idea that I only get to play the 5 weakest heroes in 1v1. My opinions aside, if we can reach a concensus about which 5 heroes I should use that isn't very divisive, then I'll lock myself into those specific 5 heroes here. Just state below the 5 heroes you think are the weakest in 1v1, or that you think I personally am the weakest with.

It makes the league a bit more competitive, makes things harder for me (Bestnoob, go go go, this is your league), and also allows me to try my best to make the perhaps harder to use, heroes, good. Which might be an interesting investigation into their balance.

How about going full random?

A lot less fun for me for two reasons:

A) I can't practise cheese strats with a hero before-hand and take them into the league

B) All the strategy element of reserving your hero picks, timing your vetoes correct and getting good maps during the lobby is cut out.

How about you don't play at all for season 4 ? You've already won twice and gave boss a permanent PTSD along the way :twisted:

I like his awareness of the meta though, dropping the bomb that is the top 5 1v1 heroes atm.

Though personally, I'd say if I was try harding i'd probably go with:

LC/LG/FS/LA/KN

I've been speaking about this topic to a lot of people and they have been all agreeing that CS and Apo are hot garbage in 1v1, so at this rate I'll likely pick them two. RA is also not really seen or represented and I personally find him very micro intensive to use, way wore than HT/LA...

I also called you a smug bastard, and I'm not sure if your awareness level reached that point yet.

Put a little walk alongside the shit-talk and sign yourself up to the league already. Perhaps this time around you might reach the quarter finals =D

And if you're feeling real spicy. Don't pick IG.

? TM, WB, CL, CS, BC ?


RA imo is one of the best 1v1 heroes.
The tunnels are too much pressure in 1v1 and on a big map like leviathan hive they are almost an instant win.

Forget GK, not a real race till they get 3 heroes. Ignore my sig >_<

Other than that I'm thinking it looks like RA/CS/Apo/TM so far.

But... If it gets to the finals it is BO5 and you cannot replay your heroes.

So... Instant loss if I don't win before game5? xD
