I’m really fed up of facing defenses with costume krampus, never mind which heroes I use on attack, I have a great roster, but it’s just a matter of killing or shutting down him quickly, or otherwise loosing 90% of the times. The berseker attack up of all the heroes is so OP that just with the slashes they can kill you, an AEO low hitter like Elizabeth does 600 damage to all, is just crazy.
I accept that the Christmas family is the new meta on defense, it’s ok that the squid can make all of them activate earlier, what I cannot understand is why even if I charge my taunt hero my heroes will dye stupidly to slahes.
Please, nerf costume krampus, a maximum % of attack up would be enough to avoid these silly raidings. Or just make that tiles or minion hits doesn’t count as hits: 45% + 20% per each hit is crazy.
Ludwig is slow, you have more time to charge your dispellers. And he doesn’t make the whole team become killers, just gives mana to the two besides him, and considering that the mana is given for the next several turns you have even more time to charge your dispelers and stop it.
I have Milena, Seshat, Devana, Melendor, Costume Vivica… I usually raid with two dispellers against him but the defense heroes do a crazy damage with the berseker, that’s why they should fix that, just as there are some heroes with a maximum percentage, it’s not fair that you charge your taunt hero and you die because of slashes, come on.
C krampus is strong, but at least he has a counter ie dispel
Xnolphod is way worse. There is no counter to his mana gain / debuffed tiles (except maybe karnov).
He also happens to be super tanky and can heal back the damage to boot. And he makes his entire team fast/ very fast.
C Sabina is the best counter for him. Ideally get her to fire first but if not possible at least she can dispel the taunt. Pair her with Grimble and you can use the 5 minions he generates to charge up other heroes. If super paranoid about the attack buff bring C Mel as well so the two can work in tandem to remove the taunt and the buff. Other times Luigi for survivability. I generally only bring 2 dispellers if I am facing both Ludwig and C Krampus
Other heroes to actually do the killing. I bring in Tree, Franz, 2 Viscaros, Uraeus, Gulli depending on the team config
C Krampus is easy enough to deal with. Bring two dispellers. Ideally a buff blocker like c Sabina is the best solution. She actually makes him a liability to the other team because you can dump tiles into him with no worry about any of his buffs. He only spawns the minions at that point. Mana control heroes are the other option: Hel, Proteus, Hansel, etc…
He is far from OP. The ones you can’t counter are the OP ones. Ludwig with other Wolf heroes is just crazy when undispellable.
I agree with the presione posts, there is not need to ask for nerf, it is better to ask for ideas on how to beat him.
Dispellers and minions killers will do the job, if your have c Frank or Skadi you will freeze that team to death. Don’t use a minion team against it because every hit of the mi ion will increase their attack.
