So you’ve read the title and thought “What? You stupid?” And yes I am, which is why I thought of this. And yes, it’s most likely stupid. Very much. But hear me out:
In the event the 4 remaining-and-never-expanding Support line up gets re-roled, 3 of them seem pretty easy. Zarya would go back to be a Warrior. I think we can all agree on this. Aba and Medivh should be healers… “Healers”, Assassin doesn’t suit them, in my opinion. (In Medivh’s case, an Assassin with that much Utility?) But then, what about the Vikings? Assassin seems the best, they can do damage if done right, the right level 7 and 13 talents. (Coming from the stupid one that plays on Vs AI) But then I thought, What about Bruiser? And after some thinking, it could work, but they’d need to be reworked.
Baleog gets his Pain Don’t Hurt Talent but doesn’t heal more off Heroes, which is where the new Pain Don’t Hurt Talent would help with.
Erik gets part of his Erik the Swift Talent that gives him healing while moving. Maybe, thinking about it, unsure it’d work as well because it’s… Erik. But the idea is there.
And Olaf is fine as is really.
This gives the other 2 vikings a touch of self sustain.
But some of you might be thinking, “There’s more to a Brusier than Self Sustain” and if you mean CC, then that box is already ticked. Olaf can Slow for a few seconds when attacking heroes. Least we forget.
In the event the Erik changes don’t happen, we got ourselves a reworked Vikings as Bruiser. Might help the Vikings garner hate… or more hate, idk the bit on Viking hate.
And no, this wasn’t anything to do with me wanting more Bruisers because I play Bruisers more than Tanks and I’m sticking to that.
