Nerf Medusa please!

Alliance wars are biased towards people having more medusa. Her auto blocking has no counter on immune nodes. WHY creaste a biased character to give undue advantage to certain alliances who have been lucky to pull medusa?????

  • Lol. KM, Corvus Glaive, Karnak, there are a couple options to counter her. They all have True strike.

    Maybe do a bit more research before you say no one can counter her.
  • Domino Rips Medusa shes fine one day u will pull champs to counter her

    comical. but she has numerous counters it's just that people don't want to bring them into war, or be patient enough to do what's needed.

    I never see anyone mention Angela as a Medusa counter, and yet, I find her to be one of the best champs to fight Medusa and she has no true strike or stagger.
  • We solo every Medusa boss, even the rank 5's. Not sure what your issue is, but your boss killers need someone with True Strike. They put out a multitude of new champions that have True Strike.

    Personally magik is my go to medusa counter just get to sp3 and unleash it when living strands. Learn to intercept and back off after 1 hit.
    Medusa boss is easier cause she gains more buffs thus my sp3 will do more damage
  • Wtf? I’ve solod a 4/55 a bunch of times as immunity mini or boss. Taken care of 90% of a 5/65 before timer running out. Learn to fight her

    Everyone's focused on True Strike when old fashion Ability Reduction works just fine. Crossbones, Gwenpool, Elektra, Taskmaster, etc. Then we have champs with simply high damage that just cuts through her when you counter her heavy like Angela. I use Angela all the time to cut down any final boss Medusa and it's easy enough.

    Agreed. Angela is honestly such a simple and effective way to cut down IMIW and Medusa.
    For those who don't know, Angela's Heavy attack has a +2100 crit chance meaning more often than not you will be critting and with some fury up the damage racks up.

    Here's an example with my Angela Vs a final boss IMIW

    You don't NEED true strike. Hell even MODOKs Heavy attack does major damage with this method.
  • Morningstar’s sp2 melts Medusa when she has the 3 furies. Any champ that can nullify buffs is great against Medusa: Dr. Strange, Dr. Voodoo, Scarlet Witch, Magik.

    Fate Seal/hex like Ghost Rider & Hood stops Medusa’s fury generation.

    Rogue & Loki can steal/copy the furies.

    Venompool can eat buffs.

    Lots of counters out there, it’s a matter of finding one on your roster

    True strike, AA bleed heavy, Loki, KM, True Accuracy, Ronan kinda, Stagger, Nullify, Yondu! Emma, Omega Red, Domino… Hyperion even

    As long as you have souls, Mephisto is great against her. Just keep spamming sp1 and she'll never get any furies
  • Ever heard of using a true strike champ to fight her??

    My post was mainly for all immune node in AW. Thanks for inputs while i dont have most champs suggested but thanks.
  • Void does really well against her by inflicting damage to her while she's got Living Strands active
    Sentry can have unblockable specials and perfect block. Medusa inflicts a lot of damage via chip damage, so perfect block can be huge
    Cyclops can use unblockable specials
    Mordo can punish her buffs via L2 and he can astral evade Medusa if she auto blocks and attempts to attack.
    Morningstar has unblockable L2
    Others have already mentioned Hood, Killmonger, Juggernaut and Karnak.
    Yondu and Domino can both attack into her autoblock without being parry stunned.

    There are plenty of champs who can actively deal with Living Strands. You can also just play around Living Strands using any champ. High damage champs like Proxima, Star Lord, Stark Spidey, and Sabretooth all are adept and inflicting solid damage when Living Strands is down.

    This is not meant to be an all-inclusive list. There are plenty of others.

    You can also just spam the sp1 with Magik, not the most effective but if it’s all you’ve got...
  • I solo her as r4/5 boss every war with r4 Magik.
  • Ok medussa is not that hard to fight. And I'm just your average run of the mill player. I wish people would stop saying nerf good champs to accommodate sub par player skills and learn how to use the champs they got

    First learn to adapt. This game isnt about champs alone it requires skill and strategy to play i can even beat her with symbiote spidey, agent venom and even X23 and you forget she has no ranged attacks so its pretty easy to dodge her I defeated her so many times with my eyes closed.. Same with blade just ensure you only bait him with sp1 they are not as powerful like scarlet witch was in her prime and never will be. Version 12.0 showed kabam can break champs if they get nerfed strange for eg and in a game like this they should not be and they will never be. The event quests itself is so hard and now the ai's are tougher champs can only do so much. It doesnt matter if you have blade or medusa and you cant use them well the ai will hand you a massive ko with a silver platter. This game is purely based on skill and strategy and once your skilled even God tier champs can be beaten.
  • If you have crossbones he Is the best counter...

    With the current bug where she only dropped one fury it’s definitely a pain but, before I got KM, with lots of practice, I figured it out. You can beat her with any champ you just have to maintain control of the fight and keep her backed up. Easiest way to do this is while she has auto block hit into her block slowly four times back away, do some evading, Wait for her to back up hit into her block... this allows you to stay offenseive, keep her backed up, feed her power, bait specials, and run down her timer so you can attack normal. Use your highest damage Champ to try and avoid timing out.

    I’m not saying it’s easy but with practice becomes EASIER… Hope this helps.

    Once the bug gets sorted out you can also use champs with ranged specials to trigger the auto block and drop her furries
  • Medusa is tricky, but come on... there are so many ways to beat her effectively... even with her current bug. What about True Striker's like Karnak, KM or Heimdall? What Buff removers like Hood, Voodoo or Ghost Rider? How about Champs with Unblockable Specials like Corvus, Morning Star or Venom? Or maybe... you could just play it smart & not attack her while she has 3 Fury's active? So many players are brain dead these days... its almost saddening.
