You keep bringing up this moral highhorse.. But honestly, nobody cares.
Not really.

Play what you like. A good deception is miles and miles better than a number-seeking hatred.


"Sweet damage bro but uh... the objectives are ~~~~>"


It has been my experience that a vast majority of the time, DoT specs (specifically hatred) want to dot everyone and top the boards. Bro, you really arean't helping to win when you break WW or Awe accidentally. L2control yourself.

an average hatred assassin is more valuable in rated than a great deception assassin.

plus, you argument is a false one. if you are good in WZs and play objectives as deception, then you still play objectives as hatred, except you are not nerfing your team by sticking with weak deceptions spec. and really, its not as if there aren't any deception assassins off looking for 1v1s far from objective points.

"If" you play hatred even halfway properly, you'll outplay any exceptional Deception sin with 1 hand behind your back.

If worms had machine guns, birds wouldn't **** with them.

If you learned how to play Hatred and understood how to win against it, you could beat it with your cat pressing the buttons. It's painfully obvious who is playing Hatred to win and who is playing Hatred for big numbers because they think that wins games.



Let's not play this game again.

The "NUH UH RATEDZ R WUT MATTERZ" argument is null in this game. It's okay to admit that.

Also, My argument is not a false one. You assume that I predicate my statement on the notion that everyone who switched to Hatred was a good teammate and played objectives. I am fully aware that this is not the case, and I would hope that you aren't trying to convince yourself that swapping to the most OP thing in the history of this game makes you a better player/teammate

being a good teammate has nothing at all to do with what spec you happen to be playing. well, unless you chose a spec that is clearly the weakest which nerfs your team. if you are a good teammate playing deception then you'll be a better teammate playing hatred.

Either Maul's animation needs to be reverted or (a much better option) give Shadow Strike the same quick animation.
Cause we have no plans(c). Btw low slash still cost 0 force.

Deception is worse than hatred in almost all categories, it have a little more burst.
