Nightmare Superman Full Review Part II
Plus ways to fix him
Hey whats up every one. I am back with a suffering champ with one of the most versatile skill sets in the game NIGHTMARE SUPERMAN. I wanted to post this up a while ago but I am happy I did not because I go to experience him after the change in the artifacts.
Ever since Nightmare Superman last buff he has come a long way. Now I am hitting 3 champs with his Q with out being picked off when I have to land it.
I was really looking forward to Nightmare Sups change in the ult to do a % damage based off of life but the change in his ult still is worth it and proven worthy to now upgrade as you level up compared to the old Ult that was really pointless. Vortex is one of the best versatile skills in the game. And it never needed a change and after the change it did not change much for what it does.
But even through all the great change of his skills Nightmare Superman lacks big time state wise and shadowed in every area by another champ. For pure controlling Atomic Green Lantern, Ivy does a better job, As support Harley, Zatanna and Ivy does a better job, As a damage carry every one that can relate to Nightmare Superman minus Atomic Green Lantern does a better job at damage carry.
You might have all heard me say in my past that Nightmare Superman is my fav champ in the game to play. But my goal is not to make the best but at least up to par (Balanced) with those of his class of controllers wether Turbine wants to focus him into being a support or a damage carry or a true controller. My close friend and I (Nenilai) went into deep conversation to try to see ways into making him up to par with other champs. I'll go into details now.
True Controller- Two ways-
First way is to reduce Nightmare Superman Vortex and increase his speed by a little bit. Vortex being his number one Controller move after he throws that in a field to control the area he sits there for a longggg time before he can blast another one in the area.
(I thought of this cool idea since he all ready more of the all ready advance champs to play as)
If you close Vortex early you have to wait a full cool down. If you let it close naturally it has a reduced cooldown. (Kinda like Flash dash. Full dash vs half dash.) People have to choose wether to keep control of the field or use vortex to damage right before enemy's escape the circle. It may catch new players for the full time it's open but the chance of vortex of catching a experienced player full the time its open is rare.
Number two- Increase Nightmare base speed and health/armour. If he lives longer then his team mates live longer and enemy team will have to suffer longer. It would make him more viable as a controller of the field. So he could get two or 3 vortex off before he has to retreat or get killed since he tends to be 2nd to 3rd picked off in a group battle.
Support- Have his Q steal and buff not only power but also attack. His q still proves to be situational and with Nightmare Superman not dishing out much damage the power armour steal plus buff does not prove to be enough but if you choose to try to damage with him.
Increase of in health and armour. As stated before the longer he stays alive the more he will be able to support his team mates.
This one is simple. Give him more power damage lol. But also add something like speed or health or armour because he is all ready super squishy with out doing massive damage with out any heals like Zatanna and Ivy meaning he can not stay in the fight as long.
I doubt (turbine) goal is to have him as this but another easy one with the least amount of state change. Just give him ALLOT more speed and a boost of range or ALLOT more range and a boost of speed.
Pretty much he is no longer the worst Champion on the list after the skill buff and if some one thinks that then it is just a opinion. But where Nightmare Superman lacks the most is his stats. I gave different area's that would help him depending on what direction you want to take Nightmare Superman. All in which would help him no longer be under performed by all other champs in what ever role he can fill.
