Sup. I... I honestly think the title is self-explanatory... I really have not much to say about it. Scout, as a kit, is WAAAAAY to useful, playing as scout basically gives you the power of Gods, except instead of being immortal, you can be anywhere, at any given place and time. Scouts has a way for literally everything in this game: -Wanna run away? Use scout. -Wanna chase someone down? Use scout. -Wanna get to places as quickly as possible? Use scout. -Wanna go into the enemy base, get a frag and then run away like a coward? Use scout. -About to fall to the void? Use scout. -Need a quick kill farm? Use scout. -Want to make an epic pvp montage of you owning people, but you suck at pvp? Use scout. -Trying to be as annoying little b- as you possibly can by slowing down enemy team, attacking them and retreating till they ignore you and keep doing that, while they're desperately trying to gear up at the beginning of the round? Use scout. -Wanna finish the enemy Nexus that has 1 HP in a map with Nexuses being completely open from many sides, and you don't wanna use Swapper just out of principle? Use scout. -Wanna make a thread about the most overpowered and overused kit in the entire Annihilation 3.0 gamemode and you're already tired of Dorian talking about Swapper? Use scout. No, wait, I'm already doing that one. Yeaaah... Don't get me wrong, Scout has a huge potential and it's respectable, but it's just simply an overpowered, overused crutch kit everyone loves using, but hates fighting against. And it makes 90% of other kits to be useless. I mean, why would I play something that has upsides and downsides when I can play something that has SO MANY upsides, the downsides become negligible? @edit So people want me to give a way of how Scout's problem could be solved. Personally I think the best idea would be to simply go back to where he was - increase the fishing rod's cooldown to 5 seconds, so the mobility still remains, but won't be as insanely abused. A player can still hook onto something, back off and save himself in many situations, but won't be able to do it all the time.
