Powershot is physically dodgeable.

Tested and confirmed, if the target moves out of the path of the shot it doesnt effect them.

Its a true 'skill shot' we cant aim.

A 1min CD, 3 second cast, final tier talent, - that is totally mitigated by the target simply stepping sidways.

Nope, it fires at the target you have selected, and you cant fire without a target selected.

Go test it, duel someone- get them to go to a decent range and run sideways when they see the cast finish.

There's not much to be defensive about.
It's not that great of a skill. Plus, it's not like I'm trying to defend something horribly overpowered.

You just sound pretty silly and/or butthurt coming in to with "Good, your long cast knockback deserves to be bugged because reasons."

Shouldn't you be more worried about Explosive Trap?
You know, the instant one, not the 3 second cast one.

You can still turn your character when you are casting at someone you are targeting.


You arnt getting it, the acutal projectile is avoidable. While the shot is in the air- after it has been fired, people can move out of the way of it.

Actually, I think it should be flat-out removed because I think knockbacks are dumb.

I see the only real solution here, when the hunter cast the shot, everone in the bg should be pulled into the LoS of the shot and rooted and it should kill them.

That about sums it up.

or they could increase the projectile speed so that a 1min CD, 3second cast, final tier talent isnt mitigated by simple change of direction.

Oh..

God, damn.

That is...

Wow.


More than likely the same brilliant pathing method of SFB. I've had those things bank the weirdest angles trying to follow the contours of the map.

Pretty much imagine if you could strafe any projectile spell. All hell would break loose.

First thing I couldn't help but think of:

You guys wouldn't last a match in LoL.

Initially I had thought, "You know... powershot is a TON of damage... that might be unbalanced in PvP."

But its a 'skillshot'? By all means if you can land it you deserve all the damage. Well played sir.

That supposed to hurt my feelings?
You're free to not like smoke bomb. I didn't make the ability, I just use it. I'm giving you that same respect for powershot (and knockbacks in general) but you seem to be taking it really personally. I'd work on that if I were you.

I do think it odd that the projectile can be completely avoided after firing though - I originally thought the range spread was just very small.
