maybe you should stop looking at the 3 years old tierlists. soulfist was good when the game just came out. pretty strong during the time i’ve been playing in korea. not anymore. they are trash tier now (both pve and pvp). they cant compete neither with utility (superarmor, stagger) nor with damage. just look at the most recent reviews and you’ll see that they in the lowest tiers for any kind of content.
They do, the real problem at lower ratings is Artillerist vs a team without a support or caster that can disrupt them. Most melee have maybe one ability that can disrupt them. Soul Fist is very good if your team helps.
i feel like i am struggling a lot in this aspect right now, when i just started i had a lot of difficulty trading hits with other classes, as i find it usually ends up with me getting hit stunned before my skill hits, or they just somehow ignore the CC on my skills and dash across to cc me while taking my attack, very often this trade puts my skill on cd, and now i can’t really combo my skills together because one is on cooldown,
now that i have a bit more experience with the matchups i know better what skills to expect from which class, and can learn to waste their skills a bit with my mobility.
however, in 3v3s if i juke or dodge 1 opponent’s skills, and then i find the chance to counter attack and start my combo, i often get cc’d right away by their teammates and usually it puts my skills on cooldown, i get ragdolled a little bit then hype 3 starts running out after CC,
at this point i have to run around and do almost nothing other than peeling/cc for teammates during hype cooldown because energy regen/dmg is so low.
thanks, i’ll check it out!.
seems like the consensus is that soulfist can use some love right now, but i’ll probably still practice on it and try to get better first.
but right now queuing on my pally or other alts for 3v3s is a lot more enjoyable. sometimes playing SF and seeing that my team doesnt peel, especially when i am being 2v1’d or after i just use my skills to break them out of cc makes me very frustrated
Yeah, that’s why there are 2 Soulfists in top 100, right? because they are not trash, right?. one of which has a 10% higher winrate while playing on his paladin.
wanna know how many paladins are in top 100? 18. I’m sure that’s only because all the paladin players are much better players, right? well, except for the one that has much higher winrate on the paladin compared to his soulfist. purely a coincidence.
deathblades? → 10. ok, also just better players.
demonhunter? → 10. yeah, same story again, better players.
