Point

Kick the ball while imbuing it with energy, causing the ball to curve clockwise while moving. Allies receiving curveshot recover some mana.



Projectile Velocity: 1400

0 mana





Notes:
  • This causes the ball to rotate clockwise. This means if you are facing downwards and cast straight forward, the ball will curve towards the left.
  • Touching a wall while being affected by curveshot will make the ball curve again from the point where the ball touched the wall.
  • Mana gained from receiving a curveshot only works for allies. This means that the caster cannot gain mana from self-passing.

Strategy

Storm Spirit's playstyle is more reminiscent of traditional position 10 midfielders who play as a team's central control tower. His innate mobility and his arsenal of diverse pass routes makes him the perfect candidate to fill most offensive roles whilst also maintaining some form of defense. However, the most recent balance changes have cut down on the uptime of his mobility, which forces the player to either choose between defense or offense for each play.

Spam Lightning is a technique where the player activates and deactivates ball lightning in rapid succession in order to accelerate in a direction, each consecutive activation cycle giving you more and more velocity. With a full mana pool this is only activatable 3 times in a row and would leave you with no options for mobility later on. Used when the situation calls for a heavy repositioning or a fast counter attack.
