I have to disagree. The word “unscrupolously” doesn’t fit here. It’s a bug and Gargos can take advantage of it, I don’t rely in it because I know it will be ripped off soon, so I don’t want to get a bad habit, but this is like seeing S2 release TJ or Maya. You knew they were unfair, they should be tuned down somehow, but you don’t just give up once you see them. Portal Punch bug its a bug, it’s not intented, and it’s an extra tool Gargos shoulnt have… But he has it, and since it’s not game breaking and doesn’t condemn any character to never win against him… I’m OK with anybody who wants to use it. I see it like an obvious point to balance in an overpowered character(not saying Gargos it’s op, just compairing with any other case of OP character that you know will get a nerf, like s2 launch maya).
I shouldn’t build my gameplay around it since it’s going to be out more soon than late, but its not game breaking. I find it “dishonest” in a friendly match, and I choose to not use it, but if there is money in the table, well, the final goal of a competition its winning, as @thekeits stated. And he is right
At full screen, Gargos options are shadow portal punch(which it’s meh) and minions(which can be good if the setup it’s good). Once you land a shadow ruin, Gargos it’s in problems. Even with meter, he has poor options against Aganos when waking up. At the end, Aganos get better trade of blocking portal punch spam than Gargos.
If I recall correctly, you were an Injustice player Geek. I was a Lex/Bane/Sinestro day 1 player. Did you found “dishonest”, unfair or overpowered the launch day Deathstroke? Because IMO Deathstroke was fair, but required more patience than other characters, and NR gave him up too soon, He got undeserved nerfs IMO because people was salty and impatient against him.
And although portal punch it’s bugged, I see a lot people jumping in the wandvagon of “Gargos it’s unfair, ban him”. And it’s not at that point at all.
