As stated someplace else (Generel/Spam-section):
SB is no where near the performance of coldheart, even though OpheliAA1 believes that.
Actually even Arminger (an Uncommon) seems to have a much better kit than her..
(I have not tested the multipliers.. yet)
that thread is not a champion analysis, just a rant
until you show me a correctly geared, fully maxed bowyer, then we can have a discussion
im not trying to argue or say the champion is perfect, but to have a discussion we need some point of reference otherthan just a rant
So even you haven't seen a well built Steel Bowyer since the nerf? I'm sorry I'm not letting this thread/argument die, but I still don't see any situation that it would be better to have Steel Bowyer than Coldheart. While admitting she isn't perfect is a start, I don't think anyone would like getting a broken bicycle with jagged metal spikes sticking out of it and being told "What do you expect, it isn't perfect" as a response.
You also said in response to what I previously said that
"she's a late game champion. she needs those stats, and high level bosses,
she needs the situation she was made for
every champion performs best in their designed situation.
a coldheart isnt gonna crit for 3 milion on a champion. it needs the final level dungeon bosses to do that. context matters here significantly"
the one situation she was built for was nerfed so she has no situation she is good for anymore, and whatever Coldheart crits the enemy champion for, Steel Bowyer will crit for less because of coldheart's higher base attack, so she wasn't designed for that either. If you are saying she is supposed to be a PVP unit now with her 1 shot AOE Enemy Max HP Damage, then why does she do nothing beneficial for PVP fights? Her accuracy decrease on skill 1 doesn't mean anything because Accuracy and Resisitance are screwed up stats, her 2nd skill heals her for 50% damage, which would be fine if she was able to survive a hit, which she is not, and her 3rd is an AOE based on Enemy Max HP, and arena meta currently seems to be AOE Counter and Defense scaling units, meaning her attacks will do almost no damage and will get herself killed. If her Enemy Max HP damage also ignored 50% defense or destroyed 30% of the damage, that would be something, but currently she is a unit with no useful situation, no useful skills, and no use whatsoever.
