    I feel this thread should probably have been made at least 6 months in the future when CGR is more in circulation, because he's far from the basics as of now.

    In that time, most users will see the value in CGR but will also appreciate Hyperion even more. He's a timeless champion with an extremely rewarding and OP playstyle. Power Gain and Fury into oblivion.
    Which further solidifies my point.

    Hyperion has the unique ability to stand there and repeatedly special intercept without hitting this opponent. This alone puts him far ahead in endgame content.

    But I notice the first hit of his SP 1 whiffing against big champs like infinity Thanos at times. Wanted to post it in the bugs section, but kept forgetting.

    He works well even if the opponent is a debuff immune champ, or even if he can't gain power, just heavy spam and that's it. Also, I know CGR has great BP, but having to constantly take Block damage isn't preferred, and if the opponent goes completely unblockable, he won't be having a fun time

    Btw, here's a pro tip for Hyperion players: You can actually combo a special 1 into a heavy attack. It's either the opponent dashes forward after the special and gets hit with the whole heavy attack. Or they stand there, Hyperion misses the first hit, then the remaining heavy hits connect. After that, you can chain heavies to your heart's content.

    Btw, only works when they're against the wall and don't have a bar of power, obviously.
    Take note, might not work perfectly against champs that have quick stand-up animations like VTD and g99. Do not try to heavy chain with Hype against VTD, or you'll get ruined. Works perfectly against every other champ, and makes him completely bypass stun immunity or limber as in labyrinth because of how consistently you can spam specials. So yeah, LoL path clearer right there! Soloed red hulk in there I'm like 4 minutes with this strat.

    Have you tried going for a “deep dex”? Like a last second dex? I use Hype a ton on my mini(4/55), and I’ve found that allows his first hit to have the correct distance. Hope that helps @Kill_Grey.

    Well, I've noticed that delaying my dex enough for the opponent to begin another combo hit makes the special guaranteed to hit such an opponent. An early dex might be risky instead.

    Edit: Now I understand your comment, and yes, I do so. But against like 98% of other champs, it doesn't matter how much you delay your dex or otherwise, cuz the special is guaranteed to hit them.

    Yeah, true. I think that applies to other champs as well because of the size.

    But nevertheless, the way to eliminate the problem altogether is to not even dash back, and actually intercept the opponent's dash with the SP 1. It's much riskier as in the situation where your device doesn't even realize you're pressing the special button lol.

    Huh, haven't noticed that one yet. Nowadays, I just parry before going for specials with ghost because of the weird AI tendencies. I don't run her with synergies, lol.
