    Ok so lets have a bad cell idea post:

    -Increase blackhole cd from 40 to 45-50
    -Increase tackle cd from 28 to 30
    -Lower down height system significantly (just a lil more than the older versions pls)
    -Change ninjas sprint to normal and give him windwalk ability with 0.5 sec fading time that lasts for 4 seconds (an anti-maphack system would have to be implemented). Cooldown 33 seconds.
    -increase collision size on Swap's spell.

    Bad hero suggestion ideas:

    Samurai Hero

    Blade Spin - Picks up all heros around him for 3 seconds (he can move while spinning). If he touches the ball while spinning it is pushed away. After the spinning is done all heros are pushed away. Cooldown is 35 seconds.
    Magic Katana - When clicked it will shoot ball but it will split into two, a real one and a fake one (only allies can tell which is fake one, it will be colored blue). Both balls go off at an angle of 45º. Fake ball fades away after 5 seconds. Cooldown 36 seconds.

    Model: http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/models-530/ronin-50824/?prev=search=Samurai&d=list&r=20

    Pudge Hero (The originality is overflowing)

    Hook - It shoots a hook into a certain range which can pull enemies or the ball towards himself (i dont know if allies). Cooldown is 28 seconds.

    Model: http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/...n-239473/?prev=search=abomination&d=list&r=20

    Time Hero

    Time Stop - It reduces every character's movement speed for in-game (Except caster) for 5 seconds, it doesn't reduce ball speed. Cooldown is 40 seconds.
    Time Travel - It activates a timer that will make you return to the place you casted the spell in after 3-5 seconds. Cooldown is 40 seconds.

    Model: http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/models-530/slannesh2-49557/?prev=search=Wizard&d=list&r=20

    Pirate Hero

    Cannonball - Shoots up a ''mortar'' into the air which will land in a certain AOE, and it will explode pushing everything away, whoever's holding ball will lose posession of it. Cooldown: 35 seconds.

    Model: http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/skins-552/barbosa-61964/?prev=search=Pirate&d=list&r=20

    Sharpshooter hero

    Snipe: Can only be done while holding ball. It will home at the target (if its an ally it homes towards him) at a decent speed, with infinite range. It will smash back once it hits that ally. Cooldown: 35 seconds.

    Model: http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/models-530/riflemanelite-49808/?prev=search=Rifleman&d=list&r=20

    Sumo Panda Le banjew hero (Eh... ok this one not so much, dat model tho)

    Judo Throw: Grabs target ally/enemy and throws him a large range away.

    Model: http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/...-130784/?prev=search=sumo%20panda&d=list&r=20

    I don't agree with Blackhole's cooldown being increased at all. It's fine. Perhaps a slight nerf to its radius though.

    I believe if the Sorceress were given a balance-tested acceleration factor to her link ability, she would no longer be able to simply be spun around by her target, and actually become a useful character in that regard. Her long-distance mobility at the moment is decent but she can't 1v1 for shit.

    The Swapper is a little underpowered at the moment as the projectile is overly difficult to hit. I'd suggest increasing the width of the projectile somewhat at least, if not other changes.

    Powershot is also slightly underpowered in that her special is usually easily predictable, whether you've got opponents near or far; I'd say cut the cast time by 25-50%. Or whatever works.

    Please fix up the 5v5 map. I've said it before and I'll say it again; the edges (uneven water) and nets (awkwardly placed rocks and shit) make it unplayable.

    I agree with pretty much every balance change Hk brought up - the meta is still fun because of the dimensions of play in the game, but half of the different champs aren't used because they're extremely ineffective against people who know how to nullify their abilities

    Most of Cell's new idea's were pretty good too, and I'm sure they'd work with some tweaking and testing in-game. I'd like to put forward one that he didn't bring up though and that I think you've probably heard about;

    The Curve shot, or crossing champ.

    Basically he has two spells, each with a 12 second cooldown. One is a curve pass that curves about 45 degrees in from the left, reaches its apex at the halfway mark of the balls trajectory, and then finishes its course on or a few yards past where a normal straight pass would have ended up. His other spell would be a copy of this but curving in from the right.

    This would open up many new possibilities for great passing plays and to nullify the defensive block teams can sometimes make when they have 4 bodies behind the ball and crowding the box (thwarted only by the tree or black hole usually). It would also allow for more plays from wide areas in the final third, such as accurate crosses curved around defenders and the keeper to arrive at the feet of players for one-time shots, which is quite hard to do right now unless you perfect the wall-pass.

    I don't know which fucking model you would use for this, I suppose it doesn't matter. Maybe just the normal male human model?

    The only problem I have with a hero like this is that it's one-dimensional in the sense that it can only be used for passing. Every other ability can be used in a variety of different ways. I do agree that curved passes should be added in somehow though.

    Maybe giving the Powershot curve passes ontop of his Powershot would increase his effectiveness and relevance? I'm just brainstorming here, it might make him beyond OP

    It could make him a great deep-lying player (Playing defensively mainly) and would force teams to take up formations to try to counter him and watch the runs of his team-mates, as he could pick them out with power-shots or curved passes

    I also think the black hole hero needs to be nerfed a bit. Maybe a smaller "catching range" for the hero and smaller AoE for the black hole would work. Right now that hero is OP for goalkeeping. There's pretty much no reason to choose any other hero to goalie except Shaman but it's very difficult to goalie with Shaman, whereas it's pretty simple to goalie with black hole.

    It's a joke I made for a friend who used to play Banjoball. He likes America in a satirical sense, so if a player named like him ("Trinnin") scores, a part of this song is played: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7R5A0pg4oN8
    It also works if team is named like him.

    Garf released the beta of a new version, with mixed receptions from the regular community on U.S east

    Changes include; Nerf to blackhole. It's now meant to be more predictive than a reactionary get out of jail free card

    Buff to Ninja jump so that he can shoot more effectively and doesn't get robbed by anyone and anything he jumps around

    Sorceress pull buffed, sped up slightly

    Buff to Swapper projectile
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    If I'm missing anything, Garf will probably update you on it. We encourage anyone else interested in the map to give it a try, or to come around clan GoTE or clan FEAR on U.S east and play some games with us
