HELP! AW KORG ON NODE 23!

We are in tier 11 of alliance war. Our BG has constantly had problems with an awakened korg on node 23.

Nodes : 1) Mix Master (same basic attack twice in a row 100% chance to evade the second attack)
2) Aggression:Prowess (every 2 secs, the defender gains a prowess passive increasing special attack damage by 50% per
stack)

What champions to bring in to counter and what technique should be used? Any suggestions would be appreciated :)

    Proxima prevents him from shrugging her stuns, so you can parry-light-light-light to remove his armor, then destroy him with specials.

    I took this fight maybe 4 times with Doom this season, tier 4, so he has oscilate. I played with a mix of parry + LMLM and ML dash back. If you aren't good evading his sp1 try to keep your aura active or go for sp3 to hit harder and remove his stacks, especially if you're getting cornered. Always focus to remember your last attack because you can try to hit him knowing that he will evade and then parry

    Omega + ST is a great counter. Just gotta stick to MLM or LMLM combos, and make sure you remember not to punish a heavy/special with a Medium dash if you ended your last combo on an M.

    I have a quick video for reference here if you’d like to take a look at my approach to the fight: https://streamable.com/5m0dm7

    This was in T3 with Stubborn, he also has Oscillate. My setup included full suicides, and you can see the boosts I had on for peace of mind.

    I like to lock in a heavy degen early, then just parry and wait for some spores to build without hitting into him - essentially keeping him below 1 bar of power for as long as possible at the start for some free damage. Once you’ve got 10+ spores on him, he’ll be unable to shrug off your stuns, and from there it’s just a case of managing your combos and heavy timings to keep the spore count locked in.

    If there isn’t stubborn ghost is a top option, omega with sabre and suicides can solo and also a heavily boosted Corvus can with true strike active

    Hi! I just took this node today so I can offer some insight.

    I used Emma Frost with an advanced power boost for that exact same fight and it was easy. I would say the most problematic node is mix-master. Emma can counter evade while she's in telepath form. Emma switches to telepath form while she's at least one power bar ahead of her opponent (that's where the boost comes in). By using the boost, you automatically switch from diamond to telepath form, and therefore don't have to worry about the mix master node.

    Also, make sure to not use specials so you always stay in telepath form. I hope this helps, and good luck! :)

    Emma is a great counter to mix master but she doesn't counter Korgs thorns damage.
