Act 6.2.6 Champion boss. What was Kabam thinking?!

Nas101Nas101 Posts: 16
So as of now I have spent almost 1000 units reviving and healing my CAIW to finish the last 10% of the fight. I use double health boosts for the fight. Maybe I just lack the skills to take down this boss but the saddest part is it’s like a dead end for me. I have been playing and enjoying this game for the last 3 years and all of a sudden I just can’t go on. Seriously what was Kabam thinking while designing this fight?

    Practice to Dex his special 1 2nd attack.Ot takes time but more you practice less revives you will use.Boss is difficult not gonna lie but Claire and Supreme like champions make this boss fight easy.Yeah boss is difficult I agree but I did soloed it with my Claire.

    I spent ~1500, was about to quit out, slept on it and finished on my second attempt with capIW. Do a couple duels to warm up, and heal up fully, you should have about 20% left after 5 dexes.

    They’re looking at toning him down

    They wanted to make a Champion with power stone. That means sadistic elder, who loves watching others fight and takes fighting like a feast with multiple phases. In this they succeeded. It is a dreaded fight, with insane block pen and other stuff that is insanely hard. Yes, it tales away all the fun and its pure cashgrab. Just the primary "lore goal" is imho fulfilled

    Out of jail and right back to trolling?
    He isn’t out of jail, he’s made another account which is against forum rules and is pretending that he’s a different person, and that account somehow hasn’t been blocked yet
    He better get good at it soon that’s one of the most cringe performance’s I’ve ever seen in terms of trying to act like an entirely different person.
    I’m pretty sure they can just look at the ip to find out it’s a replica, but it’s obvious to the naked eye anyway

    He maybe lack skills as you said but u lack manners mate. This guy speaks the truth about how the average summoner experiences that fight and u only have to say he needs to “get good”? Hope u are a minor else having this attitude is just pathetic.
    So if you don't have the necessary skills, you should be able to finish all the content?

    Bro, I still can't pass the mr. Sinister boss for not having 5★ helmdell. I don't want to use unnecessary item just on one boss.. Still waiting for 5★ helmdell..

    This fight is tough, very tough indeed.. but doable with the right counters and some skill. I lost count of how
    Many units I spent on him to practice getting the timing right so was able to full explore act 6.

    People have had life too easy.. joining game now they are doing content with 5*/6* champs that other were doing with r4 4* - so u had to get good to have a chance.

    At the moment, ‘get good’ is the solution unfortunately. I would practice dexing the sp1 in duel everyday, if you do it against the wall (quake style) it’s easier than working out the spacing for it, and as long as you have an unstoppable counter you can push yourself back out of the corner.

    Kabam have said that they’re looking at the fight in part of their re-evaluation of Act 6 and it is top of the list for the review. How it ends up is a different matter.

    For now I would suggest exploration if 6.1 or working through the variants while you practice and when you get to the stage that you can consistently do the special or they tone the fight down, go in for round 2.

    Just wait till you get to 6.3.1 medusa. I was happy I took down the Champion, and thought it would be smooth sailing from there. But medusa is much worse for me. I just can`t seem to get her down. haven`t gotten her below 70% even once. Blame is on me for not having any bleed champs at rank 5. And my rank 4's just going down way too quickly.

    Good luck on your Champ try. If you have him. Try to bring heimdall. His cheat death helped me get the last charge down on the champ.

    It’s not that hard as long as you don’t have to fight him with the “no retreat” node (science gate path). That’s pure cruelty.

    But the content that really ruined me has been 6.2.5, the 5* gates. They really destroyed me: I had only 6* Warlock and Ghost, so the tech gate path has been a bloodbath without them.
    I had no poison immune mutants (no Emma Frost, no Iceman) so suffered the mutant gate path.
    And finally, I had just a r5 Hyperion, a r4 Venom and a r4 Medusa to go through the cosmic gate path.

    Really, really, the worst event design in MCOC history.

    I defeated him two days ago. Used Magik for the entire 100%. Spent 15 lvl2 revives, 25 lvl5 health potions all saved up and 120 extra units. I feel your pain. Just keep practicing and you'll get him down soon enough. The last 10% is the trickiest.

    The only bad part about the whole fight is the No Retreat link. Everything else is very doable. The last 10% is hard, and I feel like it should stay to weed out the weak within the pack. It's one of the fights you can't just unit through in the game. If you can't beat the Champion and you're roadblocked, you're roadblocked for a reason. It means that you don't have the necessary skill or roster to continue forward in the rest of the quest.

    Act 6 has lot of UN-fun stuff but 6.2 absolutely takes the cake.. and as someone said ,act 6 would b impossibe to beat “normally” without having 8 star champions,!and I beilieve them,Maxed 5* and rank 3 6* (mephisto in my case) feels like using 2*/ 1* champ in act 4 content)U can go in and may b kill a fight or two with them but it won’t fun and far from entertaining experience and with the way rewards has been stingy and designed to keep us at level we were 2 years ago (unless u spend and open 100s of cavaliers, buy sig stones, buy 6* shards and 6* sig stones n what not) act 6 wont be fun at all or even feel good to 100% it cause the rewards u get from that would be nothing compared to a person opening 80 cavalier crystals a week

    I found a Champion duel target and went in with a 3* of SS (who I used) just to practice dexing his specials. When I got to last 10% it helped so much!

    I did this for a couple weeks. Still ended up spending about 1500 units and my stash to get the timing right live, as in duels you can't tell if you did the dex well enough for that specific 10%. It needs toning down.u

    At the time, I would suggest they weren’t thinking a She-Hulk mechanic in-game since time immemorial would become the #1 solution to getting around the razor-thin prowess/evade window in the last 10% of that fight for anyone who hadn’t lucked out with a 5/6* CapIW pull.

    Then they weren’t thinking Claire and Morningstar (the game team’s own creation) would become the primary economical solutions for that fight not named Steve Rogers.

    Now? Not sure. But if they are thinking that fight (and the subsequent ‘tweaks’ it prompted) turned a lot of players off, then they are on the right track.

    If you have him, SymSup is the perfect antidote to that Medusa. And doesn’t need to be R5.
