A Somewhat Unique Rank Up, But A Fun One Nonetheless
Well I did it. I took Storm X to R5. I know a lot of people were disappointed in her, but let me say this. I haven’t had this much fun with a champion in ages. I would honestly say she is better than Havok, in fact I have a Havok at R4 that I took her up over.
She can consistently hit 140k SP3’s as well as having a boatload of niche utility. In a fairly developed roster like mine, niche utility is what I’m looking for. Not mention just the fun aspect of the rank up.
In my opinion, people sleep on her because the only rotation you see used is either SP2’s or SP3 then SP2. This is not a good rotation for her. Because yes, her crit rate absolutely sucks. And she’s also incredibly flimsy. Although with the Act 6 nerf this might be less of an issue.
I’ve had an interesting relationship with this champion. I missed her in her first 4* featured arena, landing somewhere around 820, which stung. But I bounced back and got rank 25 in her second round. Took her straight to R5 as a 4* and had a lot of fun playing a round with her.
So when this featured came out, she was the primary reason I opened it. On my first crystal, as some of you may have seen, it rolled over from her to a cyclops, my 5th time getting him. That stung. But much like bouncing back in the second round of arena, I got her from my second featured crystal a few days ago. A day later she was R5.
Anyway, just wanted to brag a bit and share some of my thoughts on this champion. If anyone does pull her from this featured or in some other way, don’t sleep on her. Try an SP3 rotation. You might be pleasantly surprised.
