I haven’t played that much recently, but from what little i did play, I only had 1 game out of about 20 or so where I saw any problem with fizzbang. The nerf brigade makes me sick. their mentality: “Something in the meta has changed. Lets head to the forum and ask for it to get set back to the same old boring crap we had before.”
That said. The one problem I saw with her was the stat boost when it hit on magic. Extra health/shields no problem. Extra attack, manageable. Extra magic though made the other stat boosts an unmanageable problem.
Explosion + extra turn wasn’t bad (neither are the wisps) at least not as bad as mana drain. But when those extra turns result in exponential growth in skill buffs…
Kudos to the dev that has given us the wisp and the pre-nerf Fizzzbang (at least I’m assuming both were designed by the same person). To the other devs designing the spells: Take note. these 2 troops came in and shook things up, unlike all the other garbage you release week in and week out. To the nerf brigade, thanks on making Gems boring again (/sarcasm)
P.S. Someone said that Fizzbang replaced ALL the other exploders in the game. She isn’t fast, so she doesn’t replace Ragnagord. She doesn’t generate souls so doesn’t replace TDS. And if they had taken the skill buff off then she wouldn’t be able to take skull hits all day, so doesn’t replace Gorgotha.
