@DeathBlooms2K8 for what it’s worth I thought your post about your experience with fulgore today was an insightful and valuable contribution. I’m not sure that the guys responding to you meant you to take it as a personal attack, but that’s kind if how things go in a thread with so much yelling and name calling from the OP.
As far as your experience with Fulgore I think the devs would look at it and nod their heads because I think what you experienced was pretty much their intention. I hate the expression “playing wrong” because I think it implies that there’s only one “right” way to play and I don’t think that’s true (or at least SHOULDNT be true), but I do think the intention of the change was at least in part to make Fulgore’s meter management more challenging. Fulgores meter was always intended to require some thought and the overall impression was that his instinct was letting people ignore it.
As far as whether the change was necessary, who can say? I generally argue pretty hard against anyone calling for nerfs because I rarely see defensible and consistent logic. I don’t think old Fulgore was “broken” and there’s no question there’s a lot of just plain salt flowing out there. But post 3.6 Fulgore clearly has some tools available and should still be a strong character.
Anyway, just thought I’d post something because I thought it was a bit tragic that your productive post seemed to get victimized by the hostility in the thread.
