True focus - abandon Elsa & Spidergwen?

RillianRillian Posts: 527 ★★★


I was planning to r3 Spidergwen next level up. My 2nd r3. with Elsa soon after.

With the arrival of the true focus node should I now abandon them?

How many champs have been nerfed by this node, and is there a list?

    Nah, they’re still worth ranking

    Peeni is going to make that spidergwen hot even harder quicker

    No champs have been nerfed by this node. FYI Gwen will also not be good for Size Matters, Buffed Up, Acid Wash, and many other nodes.

    By this logic one shouldn't rank up any champs that rely on bleed damage because robots exist.

    True focus sucks yeah but they're still useful in other parts of the game
  • Still don’t really understand the whole true focus freak out. It’s no different than seeing any other node that’d counter/impair a champ. That’s why roster development is a thing, you aren’t supposed to be able to bring a single champ everywhere and have them shine. I will admit true focus is a rather lazy node as it hurts other champs who aren’t cheat codes to the game, but nonetheless it doesn’t make sense to stop ranking the champs that suffer from it regardless.

    Just gives people a chance to say kabam is "nerfing" champs

    Thanks for the feedback guys. The sarcasm from some also raised a chuckle.

    Re. ‘Nerf’

    I also have a duped 6* ghost. My understanding of this node is it will obsolete ghost and quake in future content as much as blade was obsoleted by act 6. Blade was never nerfed, he just gradually became unviable, er, by design. I didn’t even mention ghost as I’m assuming she will be phased out moving forwards and as such have no plans to r3 her. So I’m only asking you all about champs who are deemed to merely be collateral damage.

    There’s no freak out my end. I’m simply asking a question.

    My only other science r3 option is sig 20 cap. I already have a max sig 5*. So I’m looking to develop my roster by checking with all you big shots whether spidergwen is still an option or not. Good to see she still gets the thumbs up.

    Re. Elsa. I’m aware the forum is divided on her. She’s always performed well for the fights I use her for. My only complaint against her is nick fury is so overpowered dead or alive it’s hard to bring her to as many fights as I’d like. Maybe there’s other stuff I’m missing too.

    The other useful feedback is that everyone here is overall happy and supportive of the true focus node. That differs from my initial, less informed reaction. I’m assuming it’ll be on the grandmaster next week and all bosses post 7.2 and new variants and I’m wondering how it’ll affect my amateur spidergwen etc play. I suppose I’ll have to be more open minded.

    Elsa isn’t even worth rank 2 IMO

    Very Overrated Champion who isn’t even on Par with other Skill Champions

    I’ve really enjoyed having her at r2, but it’s more than possible I’m missing something.

    Gwen only *really* loses her evade vs unblockable specials imo. I would still r3 her. As for Elsa, i wouldnt r3 her regardless of the situation so ill let the Elsa “fans” answer that one.

    Ronin also evades
    Nobody uses that garbage unless it is an accident or a special you cant dex

    I got elsa to r3 for tb and dont regret it one bit she is incredible and underrated skill champ not overrated by any means imo a top10 in skill category. Can cold snap so opposition cant evade bust a champ n go full tilt with crazy incinerate and switch it up as n when u want her to, shes rapid quick compared to most champs u dont want to cold snap then dont. Just always finish combo on a light attack n not a medium.

    If people cant play ghost ghost is bad if they cant quake then quake is bad they cant use elsa then elsa is bad not there ability to use the champ is bad rather the champ is bad 😂😂

    This node is on boss island in AW, right?

    I would never let that highly specific situation impact my rank up decisions.

    For now it's on boss Island and SoP. However, I wouldn't be surprised if it was added as a global for the entirety of 7.3. Kabam is shoving it in everything they are currently making

    Elsa is worth much more than just that Evade.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone. Gwen went to r3. I wish I could say she did great against the GM, she or I didn’t. I’ve posted in the main SoP thread. I’m still very happy with the rank up, regardless.
