I'm not sure if it's just me but I kind of feel bad whenever I use firecrackers in Assassinate. Probably because it makes me rage so hard when I'm on the other end, which I have been as of late. I was actually using RR Smoke and LL Poison for a long time but as of recently my scores have started to dip and I haven't been winning as many games as I had been in the past. I attribute this mostly to one thing, that being that people are simply getting better at this game type. And as people have adjusted, more have found how useful Firecrackers is in this mode. As a result in more matches than ever it seems people are running some kind of Firecrackers setup.
It's kind of hard to blame them, it's a fantastic ability for this mode. I've even sunk to using it myself as a means of fighting fire with fire. Honestly though, it feels a little cheap at times in Assassinate and I'm beginning to reconsider if I should be using it at all. Or perhaps more accurately, if Assassinate is still worth playing as it stands now.
Part of the reason why I bring this up is because I never like to be that player that abuses an imbalance of the game at the expense of the enjoyment of others, and that's exactly what it feels like when I use Firecrackers. Am I alone in thinking this way? Maybe I'm just a soft Assassin.
