Ironman: Infinity War

So I have been meeting IMIW in literally every AW ever since he became aviliable. And this guy is just way too op. He has Unblockable SP1, basicly unhittable under 15% hp and insane armor that can't he nullified or fed to MD. I am not an endgame player (I am just Uncollected), and always had issues fighting him.

Also it is really suspicious how often people are getting him from crystals. Kabam is either giving him out too often or it's coincidence happening against all odds (I mean what is the chance that over last 2 months, 3 members of my alliance got him consecutively[2x in a row] in 4* Crystal ?)

What I want to say is, that this is basicly a mockery to Diversity in AW. Alliances can put more than 10 of these guys in AW, but their kill output easily outcomes the diversity loss. And my alliance is not some beginner noobs. Last season we ranked in Gold 2 and we have some very good players. I can't even imagine how insane must be beginner alliance AW, because everyone is getting IMIW and in starts of game, it must be hell to fight him.

So I would like as many of you as possible to share your thoughts on him and on potentially nerfing this boy a bit. Thanks everyone for reading this

P.S.: Am I the only one who thinks that Kabam makes good use of Seasons ? Introducing great rewards and giving out insane defenders (First IMIW, now Champion who counters best attackers) equals MONEY $$$

    Use Corvus to fight ImIw

    He is by far the worst defender to fight. I can never put a dent in him. Agree he is OP.

    He isn't OP he's only really a problem on certain nodes, otherwise just learn to intercept and save a sp3 or strong sp2 to finish him off before he gets into his autoblock with 1 armor phase. In lower tiers it really is all about just learning how to play against him because the nodes aren't as bad. In higher tiers a lot of alliances can't afford to put multiple IWIM on defense because too many people know how to fight him and diversity is often a determining factor in winning a war. If your attack bonus losses to him are outpacing diversity points they lose I think it's a problem in skill rather an OP defender. In all honesty, besides bosses and miniboss nodes which should be manageable if you have a couple boss killers in your alliance there are only like 2 nodes that make him a real problem and you can just go on youtube to learn which champions you need to bring to counter him as efficiently as possible. I see him somewhat occasionally on the path I take and while he was a pain in a$$ for quite a while just practicing in duels for a while made things a lot easier.
  • I feel your frustrations, I guess that he must be your nemesis, like mine is NC.

    Venom is the the anti IWIM, he does a lot of good things actually. If you have him as an option don’t hesitate to rank him up.

    Yeah, you're right. After everyone ranked him, it'd be stab in the back. But bringing champions who can fight him... That's somebody with armor break all the time (IF), or somebody with True Strike (Heimdall, Venom, Karnak, Cable). And for these five champions (outta ca. 150 champs in the game) you have only 1:30 probability to get them. Not even mentioning that some are not very useful in other fights
  • Practice, a lot. Fight Dr. Me in duel. He's not that tough once you get to know his moves. I typically run into 2-3 per war and take him out with hype or void. If he's duped it's great to have a debuff on him draining his life when he's at 15%, otherwise just use heavy attacks.

    If you know what heavy intercepting is, the champs that can be used go from 5 to....60 or so
    I'm not saying they're all good, but it's definitely possible

    If you don't know what heavy intercepting is, try searching for it

    He changed his name in game
  • Having certain champs makes fighting imiw much easier but you really can fight him with anyone once you learn to bait and punish his heavy
  • it's Wick2.0 (Dr.Me) now
  • I’d say korg is worse. But that’s only because I have Corvus to use against imiw.

    He is difficult I get it but like every champ even he has a weakness bait heavies and dash back and then pounce on him just a second after he finishes his heavies thats how i fight him and it helps and his sp2 is damn easy to dodge just time it right. I learnt to dodge his sp1 as well. Corvus, Venom, Heimdall would be great options. Cable also is a nice option but if you have karnak use a 6 star one.

    I am currently doing path 7 in aw (armor path) I see him every war and usually more than once. He is a tricky fight but completely beatable. My last 2 aw I have fought him 3 times and beat him each time I don't have a corvus or a medusa. I used GP Gulk stark spidey to beat him.

    Look up heavy intercepting and practice by dueling someone so he will be able to parry.

    I think korg and domino are way worse. I hate hyperion too. If I cant bait his sp1, it just turns into a mess.

    Thanks everyone for commenting and advice ! I know what heavy intercepting is, I use it against him, but my heavy usually takes him about...0,75% hp ? I admit I haven't fought him much but honestly I was surprised how tough he is under 15% when I met him in AW (before mini-boss on the bottom of left circle, Tier 6-7 AW, He was maxed 4*, I was maxed Luke Cage)
