First question I would like to know is, the 0.5 hits count per shield hit... was that discussed anywhere before it was directly implemented into the game? Also I would like to know the people that was involved in the discussion process. Third.. I would like to hear everyone else opinion on this matter, as I personally think it's totally retarded. As a side note, lets talk about rofl's SS medal, this promotes hiding tactic for the rofl trying to get SS, and even if he does get his ult, I'm sure he sure as hell wouldn't run into a group of mobs (assuming only does enough shield dmg) and hit repluse, since that count as hits now. So surv rofl is pretty much useless who hides behind teammate and maybe traps is the only thing that's useful.
