Kerrigan's Maelstrom Completely Broken

General Discussion
It builds so fast now, hard to even focus fire her down.
Then don't stand in it. It's no different than old Tormented Souls, Blaze's Combustion, Poison Nova, Mosh Pit, or any other AOE ability. If you're facing an opponent who has one, be prepared to scatter. If it can't hit multiple heroes it can't do damage, and in Kerrigan's case, if it can't do damage it can't give her shields.

Not so easy with two charges of her ravage she has now. Honestly, her shield trait just needs to be reverted back to what it was. She is gaining shields too efficiently. This is the same problem she had 5 months ago when they had to revert her trait after a buff.

Kerrigan's trait was always 10%, it was never buffed 5 months ago. Her ravaged got nerfed and they buffed her combo by like 10 points of damage lol.

It's no longer 10% Assimilation Shield, now it's 15%, doubled against Heroes, formerly 20% against Heroes and now 30% against Heroes.

Are you intentionally being ignorant? Its 30% for heroes. Prepare for her to be nerfed to the ground.

So you back up, and increase the spacing between your teammates. If she ravages, she'll both be extended, and if your spacing is far enough, she'll only have one or two heroes in the AOE, minimizing her shields.

But he’s right. It has always been 10%(20 against heroes). 5 months ago was only core ability needs/buffs. If I recall, in alpha/beta, it might’ve been slightly higher.

I often preferred the other ult if I'm being honest...
