I’m not sure why the perfect riposte heroes had their counter attacks buffed at all. They are fearsome through platinum, which is what you expect out of a good 4 star. their buff and Nat’s buff seemed odd when there are others that is in far greater need of a buff
Respectfully, I disagree. Riposte is dispellable. Plus, it only affects a portion of the team (minus Elena). Mel clears it easily. Sonya, caed, etc, can fire on the wings or side that riposte is not active on, and remove the buff.
The only riposte that annoyed me was Sumitomo’s because it was 135% damage. That stung. The other’s felt like a slap on the wrist. I appreciate the buff, as they make me much more wary.
Sure. I will start with sometimes you do have to blow tiles on them.
Do not fire an AoE until riposte is complete, unless it is zeline, but even then it bites.
Strike the wings/corners with tiles.
If nothing else, try and make a diamond in any color, or pick the biggest cascade of off colors (colors of heroes you didn’t bring to the fight).
Match tiles with your healer or the strongest hero you have. This helps keep everyone alive.
Try not to let the riposte special fire. Or, if you know it is close, hold your dispeller until after they fire. Holding a special is hard, because that flashy box just makes you want to hit it.
My raids take forever. I am constantly resetting and evaluating each board. My goal is to find the best possible match. So, ghosting tiles and making diamonds are what I aim to do with each move.
Everything is counterable, that is the nature of the game. The question is how effective is it when you dont have the counter available. Riposte will kill off your team if it goes off and you dont have a counter.
And it’s even better on offence than defense. My alt in high gold wins many raids due to Boril.
