Hydros, I think we should see other people
Listen, man. You know it's been rough for some time now. I feel like almost every engagement we have, pre-level 6, is an uphill battle. It's like trying to run through waist-high water - we don't get where we want to be because terrain is such an obstacle to us, and we take so much damage trying to do so.
I liked you because I wanted to be the tanking support to my high-damage ally - running to intercept and be a wall to protect their units from the enemy! Healing up my ally's hero when he's being focused down to deny our enemies the gratification! But the Scuttles seem like more of a liability than an aid at times. I loved how powerful it felt when you made us all, including our allies, invulnerable! We were king of the field for a few seconds! But by the time you're high enough level to be able to do that, I feel like we're so far behind that it doesn't matter.
And let's not even talk about the Titans to clear expansions - your Scuttlebros have a hard time squeezing into the spaces around the Titan in order to get into melee range. Some of them always end up running back and forth and leaving me feeling frustrated. Even when they DO get in there, I feel helpless trying to extract one that's targeted by the "get out of range or I'll break your face" move, since I usually have to move 3-4 other Scuttles out of the way in order to do that.
I used to think it was me, Hydros. I thought I just needed to get better and I'd be able to make it work. Oh a whim, I decided to try Celesta. Almost immediately, I felt so free! Denying enemy gems was so gratifying without having to put myself way out of position! The skill ceiling was higher and I felt overjoyed to stutter-step-shoot again! I don't feel I can do much of anything interesting with you after we engage, Hydros. You'll toss out a single heal and maybe we'll Brine Barrier something, but otherwise that's it. I can't focus fire due to positioning, heck, I can barely micro Scuttles out of the fight to try and survive because normally they're running into each other like maniacs. I felt like I could engage in many more situations with Celesta than I could with you.
It's just not fun anymore. We need a break, but I hope we can still be friends. If you ever end up changing for the better, don't worry, you don't have to call me.
I'll call you.
