I won’t comment your Grimble/Alfrike strategy because there are too many counters for summoners and the key is not how to take advantage of summoners in defense (like charging mana to all thanks to grimble or applying a dot damage thanksa to uraeus), but how to counter Frigg appropriately. My last experience was against Frigg-Alfrike-Odin, so no summoners involved. I won’t even consider an approprieate counter for Frigg heroes like Myztero or Lady Loki because everybody has them. Maybe C Melendor is the closest to an available counter, but he is too squishy, he must be alive after the frigg odin punch.
- Stack reds and kill her with 3 tiles
Ok when she is the tank, not that clear when she is the flank and when with the combo frigg/odin you must get rid of green and yellow tiles.
- Bai Yeong essentially cripples her special.
- Drake, Joon, Dr Moreau, Justice, Neith -as above but not as effective
- Zocc completely removes her special
- Proteus, Mist, Leopitia, various silencers
- Alfrike - as per Zocc
Bai yeong, Drake, Joon, Moreau, Justice, Neith, Proteus, Alfrike and so on… they are counters for any offensive ability, the possibility to miss or silence were also effective for Gravemaker-Telluria-Vela, in fact Drake, Joon, Justice, Neith, Proteo, Hel… were available heroes at that time, but however Telluria and Vela were nerfed. Why? Because the fact that in the game there are silence or miss heroes doesn’t mean that there aren’t OP heroes just because with the right board you can stop their specials or make them miss.
As I said before, a real counter for a hit all like Vela is Mitsuko, a real counter for Odin is Ursena, there is a lack of green riposte heroes (even 4 stars like we have in other colours: boril for blue, cipriano for purple or mack for red) or heroes that riposte only green abilities and damage like Ursena and Mitsuko do for yellow and blue. I have not said that there are no counters for Frigg as some heroes are counters for any special, I know that any cleanser will get rid of the defense down and any healer will heal for her damage, what I’m trying to say is that there are no real counters which is different, which is a problem if you think about this hero: One of the best speeds? Fast. One of the best classes? Rogue. One of the strongest abilities? Damage to all. One of the best status? Defense down. Where do you find the whole pack? In Frigg.
However, let’s see what happens in the next months, when all the s4 heroes will be released and Frigg will still be in almost every top defense.
