Daniel Klein, chief game designer at Response Entertainment, has suggested that a loba buff might soon be coming to Apex Legends, but that the High Society thief is currently “very good”.
Added back in Season 5, Loba probably had less influence on the Apex Legends meta than some of its counterparts. He is not necessarily short, but he is really hard to class as a game-changing legend in the Apex Season 7 meta.
Fond of the Black Market boutique enabled her to become an important contributor to her teams, allowing her to pull herself out of the shrinking period during Season 6.
However, his relative averageness naturally caused him to be fond of his fans when compared to some of the stronger characters in the game – Wrath, Gibraltar, and Bloodhound.
A Redditor, ‘ApexFan12’, suggested a small loba buff to Daniel Klein, Respawn’s lead game designer. Klein can often be found active on Reddit, interacting with and responding to fans of royale.
“You know how far Pathfinder’s caldown is based on going so far,” Reditor said, “I was wondering if there is any way you can do the same thing with Loba, where his tactical caldown is how much on that bracelet Goes away… Sometimes I accidentally throw it in front of me and then have to wait 30 seconds to recharge it. ”
This suggestion began to appeal to Klein, who replied: “Sure could do it! Can also take time off in general. I think animation can use pre and post with some tightening as well. Talk. That’s it, he’s great right now. Let him rest for a patch or two. “
Responding to another user traveling fast bracelets in the air, Klein described that buff as a “last resort”.
“It will require some work on visual effects to look good and is at the highest risk of having a negative impact on the ability to compete,” he said. “Point taken at the beautiful arrival; Maybe to overcome most of our shortfalls should be in animation. Like I said, this is experimental stuff, we’re still game-testing and there’s a good chance we won’t ship it if it’s not healthy for the game. “
Klein’s comment that they are going to “relax him” suggests that the change, if it comes at all, will likely decrease after the start of Season 8. It is worthwhile to wait and see how the balance of the upcoming fuse and the launch of a new season is affected.
Season 8 is set to drop in Apex Legends on 2 February, preventing any delays.
