His name's Ekko. He's new. Be nice.
Classic Kotaku Article. A Gif, a line of text and an embedded YouTube video.
researching content for an article is hard
To be fair this is more systemic to a few authors than all the writers at Kotaku.
Correct me if I'm wrong... I think this is specific to Luke. But, to his credit, apparently he just posts these to a forum for other Kotaku writers (like an internal 'check this out' message), and someone reposts them for the general public.
It's not just Luke, I know Ashcroft is another and there's one or two more than create clickbait articles from time to time.
That said if these are meant for a forum then why repost as an article? =\
Jesus Diaz, Charlie Chan, Brian Ashcraft, Mike Fahey all do this. Luke is usually really good.
Asscraft is a serial offender
Well, the upshot is that at least this time the combined file size of the gifs isn't more than the video itself.
Agreed... Especially since this is a character with an interesting origin. He was originally a fans design on the forums.
his skills look like weaver from dota..
I suppose they all borrow ideas off each other, Chronos God of Time in smite does this for his ultimate. (Rewinds 8 seconds in time, restoring lost HP and mana and resets cooldowns)
To be fair the original weaver in Dota was the initiation of the idea =P But yeah all MOBA's pretty much steal skills off each other, to date HotS is the only one I've played where I've had to re-learn how skills and abilities work.
Even then there is some cross over, the simplest mechanical cross overs would be season one Alistar > ETC (Full utility tank with no real damage, has displacement aoes with buffs).
Sorta. The video looked like he kept the injuries from before the time reset?
Reminds me more of Prince of Persia: Sands of Time.
if so then that's kinda useless...
unless it can be used during a stun or something.
