    First to say,
    Atrophy Aura --(example)--> Overthrow.
    Why did I put this option in the first place is
    because it displays hot and cold parts,
    meanwhile atrophy is all about cold.

    Let's challenge my suggestion for a better name,
    or is mine perfect, you say. : )

    ---
    Oh no¬° I put the { in the wrong direction just as ! Please mods fix it for me : (, it does matter much just as any life principle.

    I'm pretty sure atrophy is the degeneration of muscle mass and other organic cells in the body. In the case of the ability, enemy units deal less damage as become weaker in the presence of the Underlord. That's how I always saw it.

    Is there any chance that you are referring to entropy?

    You made me sad.
    I didn't think about entropy.
    Damage reduction is cold.
    Damage bonus is hot.
    Atrophy is all cold.
    Overthrow is hot and cold but might find weird.

    Oesile,
    damage reduction is a mouse,
    damage bonus is an elephant.
    You cannot put an elephant into a mouse house, but mouse can live with an elephant.
    Elephant cannot atrophy into a mouse (not in game time).

    But Atrophy Aura can elegant and you don't need a mouse
    damage control is for safety,
    damage increase is for war
    U don't understand, watch stars and you will see

    Oesile,
    I don't give up in understanding.
    Do you play with touch pad?
    Isn't throne substituted for garden?
    Isn't peace substituted with war?
    One skill, two sides.
    I will watch Star. Episode 12 isn't out.

    Never surrendering in understanding,
    Aura need no click, so Atrophy doesn't need mouse house
    It can fit right even if Elephant
    Aura does both war and peace
    we agree on this, but it still is cold Atrophy

    Underlord hits harder because of the weakness but,
    only when creep or hero die under weakness,
    he becomes war(m). It is by his cruelty;
    become stronger when those who fear perish.
    That is why weakness is the skill, it is about the weakness,
    and about cruelty. Heart of skill is cold.

    Atrophy also sounds very cool

    This thread might just be the definition of entropy. :cat:

    You know what? I like Overthrow better.
    But I do like Atrophy Aura too (it doesn't say everything, but it fits, nonetheless), so I'm not sure if I find it sufficient to change what's working. But I do think that Overthrow expresses what the ability does w/ more accuracy.

    I fixed the title too.

    @summer-penguin, thank you. :)
    Let's make another plant hero that has ability to reduce enemies' attack range and call it Atrophy Aura. This will be like a walking flower, maybe even girl (girl flower, I mean) and has some abilities that depend on day time. (For example, she has range attack during day)
