@Niko-Jims said in Enforcer Ban Discussion:
That implies that the Enforcer has been run since it got changed. Prior to this season, very few spies actually ran it. In fact, prior to this season, I remember only encountering it twice.
i will not lie, i don’t think anyone outside of the highest-level players even knew that the resistance-piercing worked on the wrangler, i know i’ve had to explain it to basically everyone i play with
This forces the Engineer to either run mini’s or put the level 3 in a less efficient spot (ex. Window).
doesn’t this just make it an inherently less efficient spot if it can be made obsolete? isn’t it in theory healthier for the stopwatch engineer meta to not stagnate into sets of the “most efficient” spots? (although rereading this, i think it already has)
on pl, the spy standing very far away to shoot is either in a sniper sightline and/or can be chased down by your scout, and the shots can be blocked by your pyro who can mostly rest easy knowing the spy is occupied
there’s plenty of counterplay to the enforcer, which is only ever run to counter ONE unlock
The weakest class in HL does not need a direct counter to the only weapon keeping it relevant.
i think pyro is a little worse but that’s not really what matters
this line makes it sound as though you don’t want to play engineer as much as you want to have impact using the wrangler, which i guess makes sense considering the class is not good, but it’s important to realize that specialists will never and should never be as effective as the generalists because thats what makes highlander interesting
fact of the matter is that engineer would still serve some purpose without the wrangler at all, and advocating for a ban against THE ONLY direct counter to it, which itself has counterplay, seems a little silly to me
