Just a few days ago, as a pot user I have realized that potions on KitPvP had been nerfed to the ground.
Either it’s intentional, or a bug that can be fixed… either way; I am here to ask you to rebuff them.
I have many reasons why they should be rebuffed and why they are really useless at the moment.
My arguments on why potions should be buffed to 15% again:
You can heal other players, whilst you cannot with soups. This gives soup users a huge advantage even when using potions is harder than soup.
When you want to use the potions properly, you’ll have to look down or back to use them. With soups, you can just rightclick and drop them. This again, gives a huge disadvantage and now with the nerf it makes it almost impossible to pot downwards.
The damage difference is small, but it makes a huge deal in a normal fight. (0,5)
As I tested just a few moments ago:
PvP kit vs PvP kit: Potion users take 2 hearts per hit, whilst soup users take 1,5.
This is extremely unfair knowing that potions are harder to use and as you can see from my arguments above this is VERY unbalanced. This kind of nerf can play huge roles in kits with lower armor and more strength. You’ll be doing the same damage but you’re taking more hearts. Also this way, better players who use potions will now be downgraded just because of this nerf, you now die 15% quicker because of the damage dealt, especially with criticals.
PvP kit vs PvP kit: Potions heal 3,5 hearts, Soups heal 3,5 hearts.
Again, this is equal but with the nerf this is extremely unbalanced. You heal the same amount but take more damage, you die much quicker and it’s harder to use potions. It now became so hard that it’s literally impossible to win fights against equally skilled players.
Potions are now worse than soup, which is very unbalanced and doesn’t make sense.
They should be rebuffed to the way they were.
If you do not agree with me, feel free to state your opinions and I will try my best to reply.
