    First off I would like to say that moving the vortex from 3 seconds to 5 seconds was a positive thing, as it was easily spammed. But, adding this with a 15 block radius from the flag that you arn't allowed to shoot the vortex is way too large.

    As a defence elf main, having this large area that you can't shoot the vortex is not needed, and is highly irritating as it is hard to judge where the 15 block radius ends. Having another class such as soldier/heavy would now be a far better option instead of elf, because of this nerf as the vortex had a unique use which is now taken away.
    Not only for defensive elf, but now offensive elf has had a nerf of not being able to vortex recov and supply support for the offence.

    The soloution to this would be to decrease the radius of the 15 blocks down to a 5-7 block radius to protect the flag from wind vortex and keep the increase timing of the wind element use. The 15 block radius is too hard of a nerf, so please leave what you would do to change this, thanks! :smile:

    Yeah I fully agree here, I also play a lot of defensive elf and this hurts it really unnecessarily. The cooldown increase is enough of a nerf to stop spamming, but having the large radius makes the class way more difficult to execute (and it's kinda hard already).

    5-7 blocks seems far more reasonable, bearing in mind this is elf's main ability on defence as pure is too inconsistent and sword deals too little damage. Even though soldier is currently the strongest class on offence, this buffs it even more on soldier-favoured maps such as Blackout, where an elf can't use vortex on any of the flagroom entrances or any of the surrounding blocks, meaning a soldier can easily get in and out without elf being able to do much. In saying that, 15 blocks shouldn't be terrible on some of the maps with a larger flagroom.

    Isn't the general consensus that elf is weak at the moment? If so, why is the class having its main ability nerfed so hard without any compensation for water element, or the sword etc.?

    I was never a big fan of elf being able to spam vortex near the flag post. However, I will admit that making it unusable 15 blocks away from the flag post is a bit much. I will 100% agree with you here that it should be knocked down to around 6 blocks at least.
