It seems one of the primary purposes of the rvr video was the potency of reaver's impale and how challenging it is to 'counter' it. I would agree that it does hit a bit too hard (I think roughly 9k for a 4 bleed crit on a typically built reaver is a good spot, compared to say 11-12k right now), but ofc every other reaver skill (besides DS and BT) needs a bump in damage to compensate. Its a good skill, and one of the better mechanics on creepside, with the requirement to stack bleeds, and 1 bleed having a longer cooldown than impale itself (it would be nice if a different skill was the removable wound though, maybe swap mutilation with thrash for this? a 30s CD being instantly nullified by a host of removal options is rather silly, while a 10s cooldown is more reasonable, and allows more counterplay for both sides).
That being said, there is a very simple counter to impale, that EVERY freep is capable of making, that doesn't require specific class makeups (like a yellow cappy, or the others you mention). Since you like hints and figuring things out, your UI setup is hiding what this simple counter is.
As your video of the 3-mans shows however, a reaver's impale isn't really that much of a problem for a group with a healer to handle. You have a reaver and a warg, who will be doing much more dps than a reaver and a BA trying to kill freeps in one situation, and a reaver and BA in the other, with wildy different results.
As to the rest of the videos, I realize goldtaggers and groups joining in is a bit of the reality in the moors, but it really doesn't 'show' what I think you're trying to show. I could only see 2 wls (steve, buckets), 1 defiler (biz), 2 reavers (angaria, elgreco), a BA (gando), and a warg (nirv) in the stainless group, who were the other 2 WLs?
A relatively clean 6v6-12v12 video would be very interesting, though.
also lmfao at the comment above me.
