So as many of you are already aware, there's this new game that came out called Paladins: Champions of the Realm. You can tell the game developers came up with that name on the spot, just like they came up with this game, on the spot. So Paladins is the new kid on the block, trying to fit in with the cool kids, Battleborn and Overwatch, and to be completely honest it's not doing a very good job of it. Many people call Paladins, "Overwatch for poor fucks", now it is free but, it's no where near as polished and clean as Overwatch/Battleborn. So this game is utter horseshit, I'm sorry but there's no other way to describe it. The balancing is atrocious, some characters are rip-offs of Overwatch heroes, and the game's "power-up" system is pathetic. Alright so I've put quite a bit of time into playing Paladins, unlocked some new characters, had some experience, and I've seen the issues with the balancing in this game. There's some Widowmaker wannabe called Kinessa, who has one of the most overpowered weapons in the game, let alone the fact that she has little mine looking things that slow down enemies and deal damage. Her discount Widow's Kiss, can body shot anyone and kill them instantly. If it doesn't kill them instantly, they're just left with very low health. Then there's some Soldier 76 type character called Viktor. Let me just say his little rifle fires so fucking quickly, and deals so much damage. Oh Skye's arm shooter thing has the same problem as Viktor's. The game's developers obviously saw the amount of success Blizzard's characters (Heroes) in Overwatch had. Many like the fact that they're all unique and mostly original. So the developers decided to completely rip off some of the heroes from Overwatch. If you don't know who the characters im talking about are, just look them up as I give this list. Viktor- Soldier 76, Makoa - Roadhog, Drogoz - Pharah, Fernando - Reinhardt, Barik- Torbjorn, Kinessa- Widowmaker, Ruckus- Dva, and then there's Androxus and Bomb King. I can't say Androxus and Bomb King are rip-offs, however Bomb Kind's ult is just Junkrat's RIP-Tire, and Androxus is Reaper and Mccree mixed together with terrible abilities. Did I mention that they couldn't even come up with a different name for the character's special abilities? They just simply call them ultimates, boy I've never heard that before. This is the last I'm complaining about, so you can go be happy and shit. So the unique thing about Paladins is the little power-up menu that you can use to use power-ups during the game. These power-ups can range from damage resistance, to damage increase. You need credits that you get from the games you play to unlock and level up these power-ups. The thing is these power-ups don't do jack shit, some say "Damage resistance from direct attack by 10%" 10%? Are you kidding me? What the hell is 10% damage resistance gonna do when you have some bastard like Kinessa that can one shot your fucking body? There's also other power-ups that don't do anything useful, and by useful I mean that can be convenient in any scenario. Most of the power-ups are very select and not very general. Alright I want to know what you guys think about this game and the things that I mentioned.
