hahaha that was sure an amusing read. Let's put it this way, so that even a 9 years old can understand it:Shinse wrote:huh? a shield? so shooting behind a shield when suddenly you get shot at from front and back and have nowhere to go...ah! good plan right? maybe you're just casually shooting behind your shield and no bullets getting to you lol good choice! when suddenly a melee ninja appears and lands on you with a cs + cs heavy right into a wall for an almost instant death...yup! just a shield is all we need! lol...and you could at least read the whole guide...the guide is for helping make a good build. There's a weakness to everything so saying "All you need is Shield." doesn't help at all...
In S4, for the most part, you shoot bullets to kill players.
Shield blocks bullets. The end.
Why is it banned from DM ESL tournaments? Why in the recent DM Burning Aim Tournament *EVERY SINGLE PLAYER* was using Shield in the finals?
Shield has no real downsides. Its only downside is that the potential lack of SP makes you more vulnerable to stun based attacks (and makes it useless if you take the ball in TD), but this is a weakness shared with every active skill.
