What do you think of Kurtz??


Yes devastation 5 Yes!!!


The desing is aesthetic. I don’t see it as a competitive hero tho.

Yes for Devastations! Hope I can be able to participate for a few of those! Also, Kurtz looks mean! I look forward to seeing what the numbers are in his skills.

I’ll tear you up in pvp)

I will be glad to fight with you):sunglasses:

Wow. This should be interesting lol

and how can I know which developer I am facing???

so he had a past with wesson huh? Considering they were together last danger simulator, i kinda expected that.
Conceptually, i like that he and wesson are somewhat opposites: Wesson’s skills support his allies ans he actually benefits as long as his allies stay alive, while Thanos( i mean Kurtz) is willing to sacrifice his allies
P.S. Good to see you, Thanos. I’m looking forward to unlocking you


Alliance war? No fragments on Co-op?

Non caisse et guerre

Curious to see how Kurtz’s Execute skill works alongside Flatline’s gold, which prevents an ally from dying. Also interesting to see how fast “Execute” charges, and what happens if he’s the only one still alive (which could be a common scenario if the skill cools down somewhat quickly). Most likely the skill wouldn’t trigger at that point, or he’d have to kill himself.


Cant wait for the thanos/kurtz memes to roll in


Dévastation, toujours inscription sur Discord ??

Great, another case grabbing 7* Hero that’s only obtainable by <1% of players

Where does it say he’s 7*?

Kurtz looks really broken imo. Depending on how fast the dominate stun is, you can one shot an enemy with execute to power up and heal your team. Charge time is also an issue. If it takes too long, he would be bad, since he would never be able to use it.

That’s what the dev-astations would solve, finding a balance and addressing possible problems. He does strike me as a high-risk, high reward character.

I predicted in discord that if Kurtz was a pay to get hero like 7 stars, the game is approaching to p2w route. All of his skills are one mass threat in pvp. (Especially his platinum) I’m hoping kurtz gets rebalanced before he becomes available.

you’re right. already in the campaign his skills are well broken. You basically can not do anything because it has you paralyzed when you use your dominant ability.

I urge you to wait and see before you pass judgment. Nobody has Kurtz yet, so talk of rebalancing a Hero that isn’t even available yet doesn’t solve anything.
