All new very strong hero’s present 1 problem or another. Some are status effects, some are buffs, and some are just raw power at high speed.
That is what I like most about this game, figuring out what works and what doesn’t. Pure power is the toughest thing to overcome in my opinion. The game would be so boring if everything stayed the same and hero’s didn’t get stronger and different.
IMO there are just too many players that lose a couple of raids and come here to vent instead of trying something different. Yelling for nerfs. I think the better option is to yell for a counter hero, or dig into your roster and find the solution.
3 Star - Kvasir I like using my Kvasir but that dude always seems to fire first making it so I can’t produce minions like for the whole match!
4 star - Li Xui She’s a brutal tank and always seems to fire when my heroes are ready to use their special skill, ruining all my plans.
5 Star Anozgh Yeah I know, he’s certainly not the toughest or even close to the most powerful. But this hero always gives me fits. Maybe he’s not great for attacking but when I see him on defense which is rare now, something always goes awry!
@Ruskin505 I found Faiez to be an excellent counter to Treevil during this week’s tournament. If you can get him off first, Treevil becomes highly ineffective. Of course in Rush tournaments, it might not be as easy to fire Faiez first because Faiez won’t have that slight mana speed advantage anymore. Anyways, Treevil was also a pain in my side and I resorted to a yellow mono just like you. With Faiez, it is much easier to neutralize him (or multiple ones).
@JGE im the same with mother north - resurrector whose talents (in and out of costume) help her resist mana control. So I’ve learned to just take some heavy duty snipers and def debuff/attack boost and take her out fast!
Back when I was hitting my stride and starting to face 5* defenses, my bane was Kunchen or Aegir. This was mid 2019. Now they are overshadowed by so many more powerful defensive healers and rarely seen. Mana block or dispel from any of a number of sources will deal with them.
Today it’s most of the OP heroes that litter diamond defenses – Ludwig, Octros, whoever has been released in the last 6 months that I have no time or interest in learning and differentiating. And since I don’t vary my raid or war teams much, i just take the lumps or luck and move on, mostly relying on my trusty LotL to keep them at bay if possible.
Until I leveled troops to a decent level Raffaele seemed to always go off at tank and couldn’t recover. My greens were too passive also. These days the magic heroes. With 3 ot them at once I usually bring Lepiota and mana control but it can be tough!
