It remains to be seen after they hotfixed their patch. But it does seem like a very big nerf.
If Geomancer is losing damage on the CB, many ClanBoss teams, many investments in this champ (like spending money to get a 40 shard guaranteed champ with a certain set of abilities, Potions, masteries) will just be taken away.
For me personally, this would mean that no offer of Plarium can be trusted anymore, especially regarding good champs. If I am losing this trust...why should I spend in this game?
It is a shady move from Plarium in my opinion...and how they will deal with this and how Geomancer will turn out to be will define my spending behavior and even playing behavior with RAID.
I will test Geomancer after the hotfix..and if the damage level is NOT equal to the pre-nerf state...I will take the consequences.
Btw...the explanation for the change was that it caused game instabilities. I never experienced any instabilities while using Geomancer. Can anyone confirm he had game crashes?
