Goyo and Kaid have the same shotgun selection I think, but if you were to choose between the two, go for Kaid, definitely better and benefits objective area with a more reasonable defensive gadget. Maestro's LMG is a strong suitable option, however, it takes practice with his gadget, the Evil Eye's are hard to manage, and can be countered easily (melee hits, frags, EMPs, Maverick's Breaching Torch, and Dokkaebi's Logic Bomb.) Vigil is a strong roamer with great gun options, his gadget is decently useful. Ela has a strong set of weapons, and she comes with a resistance to flashes and such. Her gadget is very effective against Shield Operators (say goodbye to Montagne and the tactic to guard a bomb in a corner.) Alibi's gadget is easily countered, and can be avoided easily, I suggest staying away from Alibi in Ranked Matches. So for the final choices, that leaves us with: Ela, Kaid and Vigil. However, you will come across a decent portion of Vigil mains, which may be true for Ranked Matches. Ela and Kaid are strong suitable options, their Ban Rate is very small, and you can bet you can bring either one of them into a Ranked Match. (Speaking of Kaid, I partially main him for defense, and his recoil patterns are on the higher scale, it will take some time to get used to this amount of recoil however. Stick with Ela at first for Ranked Matches and such, and practice Kaid's recoil, along with his gadget. Please note that Kaid's gadget's range was buffed to 1.4 meters, and can reach many more objects. Use his Barbed Wire over his Nitro, it compliments his gadget's effectiveness.)
@Chungle Book you cant melee an evil eye to destroy it, and Ela doesn't have any resistance from flash bangs. As for the question, Meastro is all-around amazing. Acog might get taken away in the mid-season patch, but that won't affect his performance.
I meant Sledge's Hammer, my apologies.
Ela recovers twice as fast from concussion effects, not flash bangs, my apologies. And Sledge's Hammer does indeed destroy Maestro's Evil Eyes.
