Hyperion Counter-Play

This is really more about countering Power Gain, but it applies mostly to the higher 5* duped Hyperions because the Power Gain is so extreme.

Is there any other counter play besides trying to bait SP1/SP2 before he hits SP3? I don't have many champs with Power Block or Power Drain, and those that I do have can't apply it reliably or fast enough. The known bugs with dashing and commands also factor into my frustration with this.

It seems like this is more luck than skill, which I find very annoying. Sometimes, the AI will use specials a lot. Other times, the AI doesn't seem to want to use them at all, and then I'm destroyed by an L3.

    Hit him to l1... bait as soon as he gets there rinse and repeat. It's sometimes 1 or 2 hits at a time and slower fight. It really easy

    He's easily one of those champs I hate fighting. @Yelin547 is right though about the baiting of the s1. If it gets to s2 I think it is harder to bait his special. I think sometimes it takes a little luck.

    I understand that, and that's what I try to do, but like I said, sometimes he won't bait. The pro videos I have watched say baiting doesn't always work. That makes it more about luck.

    It seems like the higher level Hyperions can get to L3 with a few hits and a Power Gain. It is very fast.

    I agree that baiting SP1 seems to be a lot easier. That goes for any champion. One combo and a power gain can get him to L2 at least for the 5*s.

    I would not say every champ. I personally prefer baiting the s2 of Black Bolt and IP. It's relatively easy to do. I also prefer baiting the s2 of Elektra since it is easier to evade than her first special. Same for Spider-man.

    It really is a lot about baiting the SP1. Once you get the cycle going, the match ends pretty quickly. He's one of the few champs that I don't need parry to beat and has become quite easy.

    This is coming from the guy who still gets whooped by AV and BPCW...

    Playing him parry/stun immune would help you in wars where I have seen him placed occasionally on the stun immune mini-boss node.
