You cant compare totally different skills like that. Also in comparision, all the other classes need to land a catch, stun to ditch out damage in a combo. Destroyer skips that with one single snipe. Its catch and combo in 1.
And no, i nerver beat destroyer easy in the past it actually was always an intense match but probably i had just good opponents. Actually the fixed flashbang doesnt change much since a good destroyer wouldnt let his enemy lagrun away. But that doesnt mean that 4 seconds might be a bit too long.
LMAO "skip that with one single snipe" xD try to play the class one time to see how is the difficult to catch with snipe then open ur mouth about it xD what I mean here is it's not even that easy, also not too hard to catch with it. The chance to catch with snipe is around 50% and depends on many factors like prediction, cast time, range (too close or too far then enemy can escape very easy) and the cast time is also around 0.5-1s with 300% atk spd, enough for the target to run away if you didn't predict their moment. So firstable don't talk about something you don't know well about it like it's that easy xD also, snipe dmg isn't that great. If you say it is, proof it. We would like to see
(both have to be stacked)
Second, many of the crowd control skills I listed last time doesn't require user to catch before using it e.g. barbarian, ice trap, magnet, blizzard, time freeze, the 2 stuns skill and the skill that make people sleep from ninja, stumble from overlord, bla bla and bla. And for Flashbang you will surely need to catch someone first, just throw a Flashbang with a poor flight path out and hope for a lucky catch will be more likely a fail than the about listed skills. Those listed skills are also used to catch/begin a combo for those classes. Flashbang can rarely be used to catch or begin combo. And we are also comparing crowd control skills of other classes and their duration to know if a single 4s stun is that "too long" xD so I can compare like that. Didn't even compare further that many of those skills work better and has even longer duration than Flashbang.
Third, this discussion is to complain about Flashbang and compare it to other cc skill, not to complain about snipe xD
Last, as i can see all complaints about Flashbang and the duration is too long are all words without proofs or can't even say something proper why it's too long. Your feeling about its "too long" is one thing but the truth that it's nothing compares to other cc skills from other classes is another thing. You can't just use your own "feeling" or your bad experience from losing a pvp match to complain. Prove if it's too long huehuehue
