Season 2 Heroes in OLTs

Centurion and Shinobi will be banned until 5/26 12:00 AM ET. Players can use the new heroes in the Friday 5/26 tournaments and onward. This is so non-season pass holders aren't put at a disadvantage if the heroes are strong, and also gives them a few days to catch up.

Thanks.

Shinobi didn't seem that bad on PC when I was at the promotional event, but I can see it being a problem on consoles potentially with how fast the lights are.

The saving grace is that the shinobi only has three and a half bars of health. That's two heavies being enough to kill one, which puts it in a much more fair place than the PK. His reflex guard is also very small even compared to other assassins, and dealing with the double dodge into kick is simply a matter of programming our muscle memory to react to it and punish.

So after further consideration..... yeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaa there's probably going to be a lot of drama around these characters. The general consensus is that they are way better than the rest of the cast, but the thing is.... that actually makes them fun to a lot (possibly most?) people, because the rest of the cast feels like they lack proper tools.

Granted, this applies doubly so to the PC community, whereas here in console land we already have tools which are made more viable due to input delay and lower frame rates.

So. Odd situation. And I am almost certain that around 80% of the tourney picks will be the new characters. At the same time I feel like everyone is going to have fun with it so maybe thats not a bad thing, except for the few people who are absolutely dead set on playing their old mains despite any possible disadvantage. Hoo boy..
