KFC.

You can be a brain-dead idiot and win as KFC. Brain-dead moonkin teams usually result in dead moonkins. Not saying LSD2 isn't capable of doing just as well or being just as retarded in the right hands, but KFC takes the cake for joke comp s9. Also you see like 20x more of them, not even an exaggeration.


That's funny since playing a moonkin in LSD2 is all about being brain-dead and spamming two spells.

I agree with this.

We faced a ~2.6k LSD2 as rls, which filovirus considers a hard counter to rls. Game went for 5-10 minutes even though a lot of people are suggesting your chances of winning end at the 1-2 minute mark.

Momentum shifted back and forth. They could create a lot of pressure and they nearly scored kills a couple times, but it wasn't to the point where good play on our side wasn't rewarded, picking good windows to create pressure ended in us scoring a kill.

When comparing the playing experience vs LSD to KFC, it's just wasn't even on the same level.

KFC has the capacity to end the game in under 5 seconds, even when under massive pressure, something that i don't think LSD2 can do.

KFC is capable of absurd burst, which can often be unavoidable, because a lot of their cc is instant (scatter, silencing shot, trap, throwdown, charge). KFC also isn't enhanced greatly by player skill, we have faced numerous KFC teams ranging from 2.2-2.8 and the difference is often not that noticeable.

I'm sure the ability of those in an LSD2 would have much more impact on their game, than the player skill of those in KFC.

Also i think the chances of success is much higher for KFC in all match ups, just because of the nature of their damage. It comes in massive chunks and with good rng can kill anyone in 3-5 seconds.

LSD2's play is dictated by the pace of the fight, in the same way nearly all comps are; they can be offensive when they have a pressure advantage, but have to play defensively if put under pressure. This kind of rule isn't always applied to KFC, since they can kill something at any time.


Most of this is spot on. LSD2 is easy, sure, but it gets a lot of extra hate for two reasons:

1) Nobody is used to losing to moonkins; the spec has been horrible for 8 seasons. Right now balance is suffering from the shadow-priest effect of S8: they suddenly became very viable after an extended hiatus in competitive arena, and for a long time there were cries and whines of OP -- but by the end of the season people were used to shadow being a T1 spec and were done crying about it.

2) The name. Everyone remembers how fucking ridiculous LSD was last season and some of that rage is carried over. I'd rather call the comp Dotparty B)

now you know what kfc mirrors look like, it´s really retardet.

i play kfc myself and lsd2 is a pain. you can´t kill anyone, need really good luck to get an insta gib. Otherwise you will die if you can´t win in the first minute.


you should very easily be able to beat this comp in the opener by zerging the moonkin.

What this game really needs is a Duelist mount. It can be the same model as the Gladiator mount, but maybe have a gimpy leg and only be able to fly around in circles. I'd still ride it.

People just don't like being killed by a fluffy chicken that has never been able to hurt them before. But to be fair playing a moonkin isn't very hard at all, its a watered down version of a warlock without a pet. That being warlocks are also piss easy to play :).

the only reason people think KFC is worse is because there are 20x more KFCs than LSD2.0s. It literally makes my fucking blood boil to see retarded druids at 2.7k just because they can moonfire, insect swarm, tab & repeat. At least as KFC they use more than 2 spells to win.

Those reasons really have nothing to do with it.

It's mainly because all you need to do is literally moonfire, insect swarm, jump - moonfire, jump - moonfire, jump - moonfire, jump - moonfire, jump - moonfire, eventually replace moonfire with sunfire and it's even more lolz. MAYBE an occasional Cyclone here and there. It's just beyond simple.

As bad as LSD s8 was in comparison LSD2.0 is much worse. I played shadowcleave s8(terrible comp) and we could still score kills vs LSD last season. This season it feels you have to pray to go you can get a kill before some1 on your team dies from dots with spam heals. The only thing keeping LSD from being so apparent is the fact that there isn't a lot of them right now and KFC overshadows due to how many of them there are

Those reasons really have nothing to do with it.It's mainly because all you need to do is literally ice lance, fireblast, jump - ice lance, jump - ice lance, jump - ice lance, jump - ice lance, jump - ice lance, eventually replace ice lance with frost nova and it's even more lolz. MAYBE an occasional Polymorph here and there. It's just beyond simple.


Same can be said for any class realy, its just how dumbed down the game is. I'm not trying to defend moonkins the spec realy is brain dead, but what class in this game isn't?

I'd really like someone that keeps saying moonkin is moonfire and insect swarm to actually play the class and spec and see if it's like that. I doubt you'll even reach 2.4k by OMG MOONFIRE SPAM AND INSECT SWARM = KILL ... go for it m8 and give me a shout if you get above that rating at least rofl. And KFC yea there are some healers that can't really outheal the dmg you can't get high with LSD if you don't know how to play moonkin u can still get high as KFC tho cuz of the stupid burst they do.
