    I have a r4 Overseer, r3 Apoc, only a 5* maxed AA, and haven’t been lucky enough yet to pull herc or nimrod. Would you recommend still bringing AA? Also who are good void fillers for Nimrod and Herc in your opinion, might follow your write up seeing as you only used 5 revives. I’m high skill, just lazy and like to follow peoples guides when they do content that needs planning lol 😂

    @mmmbanyas I would recommend 5/65 archangel, it just means fights may be longer.

    So without Herc and nimrod you’re looking for Terrax, Ibom, Apoc counters really. The rest can be handled by other champions. Someone like Warlock, Kitty, Magik will help there.

    It’s hard to suggest who to bring without seeing your roster, I could recommend 10 champs you don’t have! Feel free to post a screenshot and I’ll take a look there.




    Last 2 R3’s not pictured are Hyperion and Sersei, r2’s I have are mostly BG defenders that will be going up, not really many attackers sitting at r2. Doom and Overseer are r4 max sig

    First of all, damn good choice with Overseer as R4, he’s so cool and I’d consider him for my second science R4 if I didn’t have Mr Negative - they have some cross over and do similar things. He’s so cool though and I loved using mine for gauntlet.

    Second of all, I’d recommend this as your team

    Overseer
    Apoc
    Archangel
    Kitty
    Warlock

    That way you’ve got all the tough counters sorted

    Doom - Overseer
    Terrax - Kitty
    MODOK - archangel
    Weapon X - warlock
    Korg - Apoc
    Spider Gwen - Apoc
    Ibom - warlock
    Sasquatch - overseer

    And for the champs you want a counter for:

    Vision - overseer
    Dragon Man - overseer
    Black Panther - Kitty/archangel
    Mojo - archangel
    Killmonger - archangel/Apoc
    Nick Fury - any of your mutants

    The last ones, you can pretty much make do with any one of two of your team, but that team should be able to handle most of it.

    Let me know if that seems good, or I can try and figure out a different team if you’re not keen on it.

    so theoretically I can quake pretty much everything but nameless Thanos, spider gwen, and maybe Nick fury?

    Are you a masochist.

    You can quake Nick fury, but you wouldn’t be able to quake Apoc, his evade counter starts going up even with concussion.

    Vision will also likely get a couple of synthesis through at some point, and get to specials. Although quake can stop his sp1 and 2 doing damage, eventually he will get to sp3. (Unless quake can completely shut off synthesis like she can dragon man’s power gain timer)

    Also I can’t imagine Killmonger would be fun, it’s hard to set up quake so you can turn off his reverb. But that’s up to you

    Also I have no idea why anyone who wants to have a grain of sanity left would subject themselves to a beefy weapon X that will be permanently stun immune and one slip up means KO.

    Void will likely get debuffs through and when that happens you’ll get drained.

    Lastly, mojo will likely eventually get prompts through, and gain some power. If you’re set on quaking, those are the fights I’d bring counters for.

    I’ll see you when they bring out Carina Challenges 7, maybe you’ll have finished quaking by then :D

    I have very much moved on from quake lol, the first gauntlet run was actually what made me hang up my quaking thumbs tbh. I got pretty bored of her after that , didn’t feel like I’d achieved as much by quaking 8/20 fights. But that’s my own personal view.

    Yeah quake can absolutely take KM, I just know it’s stressful to set up lol

    Oh not to me, to Spidey lol. I used Quake for 4 fights this time around cuz it just made the most sense but I haden't touched her for a long time before that. Though that probably also has to do with me going allianceless. I was using her in war a ton before that.. actually I ended up using her for a lot of KM's 💀

    I love Overseer thanks! And I appreciate the recommendations, you listed Overseer as a vision counter, does his taunt make him fire off the sp1, sp2 instead of saving for the sp3?

    Here is my roster. I believe I have most things covered, but still not sure on a final team. Would appreciate some feedback

    Decided I’m gonna be insane and quake as much as possible. Here’s who I’ll opt to take a quake break on:
    Terrax - Herc
    Vision - Mags
    MODOK - Mags
    Weapon X - Nimrod
    Dragon Man - Mags
    Spider-Gwen - Nick
    Domino - Herc
    Mojo - Mags
    iBom - Nimrod
    Apoc - Nimrod
    Void - Herc

    Then I’ve got two problems: Sassy and Kilmonger. With the ones I’ve got, there aren’t any clear counters. With the team I’m bringing, what would be the best thing to do here? Would love some advice.

    You can use Mags on KM. Sp2 to armor break then you’ll refresh it every time you gain a prowess.

    Against Sassy, Nick might work if you stack enough bleeds and run max despair. (Big MIGHT here given the health pool and random AI. If he goes passive and your bleeds fall off, might be in some pain)

    Didn’t think about Mags vs KM, good tip. I’ve got another 600 units until I can get max despair, so I’ll think about that

    Yes! The taunt allows you to disrupt the order that surging vengeance gives, and he will throw a special if you bait it.

    Remember that there is polka dot power, so Mags can’t get to an sp2 to apply the armour break unfortunately.

    @TheBair123 Regardless of who you use vs Sassy, I would recommend getting despair higher ranks, it’s one of the most important masteries in my view.

    Last time I didn’t go past 2 lanes. Apoc just got him the other day and might awaken AA for this. Idk if pictures will load in order. Any help is appreciated

    If you awaken archangel, then:

    Apoc, archangel, torch, Kitty and for the last spot Ghost/G2099

    Apoc and archangel take the same fights I used them for (except archangel takes Doom as well)

    Torch takes dragon man, mojo, Sasquatch

    Kitty takes Terrax, BPCW, spider ham, maybe Nick fury

    G2099 would be able to take Apoc, Ibom, weapon X but would have a tough time with vision I think (though you could try vision with Kitty)

    Ghost would be able to take vision (tech power booster), Apoc, ibom but not Weapon X - you’d have to take him with Apoc (or maybe archangel).

    So your choice between those two is based on whether you want an easier time with WX or Vision. You would also be going against WX unramped, though if you start the match with 6 heavies you’ll have a good combo safety net.

    I’d probably recommend taking ghost, Weapon X is doable with Apoc, and archangel as back ups if it doesn’t work.

    That team has a decent counter for everyone but one or two, so that’s pretty good overall. If you don’t decide to awaken archangel, feel free to let me know and I’ll think of another team. That’s what I’d suggest though.
    Thanks. Who would you use if I didn’t awaken aa? I was planning to wait till after eop rewards to see if I snag Hercules to decide on the generic ag.

    I’m thinking about running moleman, kitty, tigra, torch at r3 and nimrod at r5. That is my strongest team (I don’t think I can make a practical team with r4 KP even with r3 hood). I have Apoc, AA, and herc, but they are all r5. I think Apoc/kitty/AA/nimrod/Tigra has better overall coverage but it isn’t as strong a team.

    My bad. Haven’t really researched the nodes yet.

    In that case, he might be forced to use Nick or Herc and only hit when reverb is off.

    Kitty with Tigra synergy will be a beast given she will be able to just phase and attack above 10 prowess and be unblockable.

    I’m bringing Kitty R4 / Tigra R4 / iAbom R3 / Ghost R3 / AA R3 for the run over the weekend.

    My team so far is aegon, herc, and archangel. I don’t think it matters to much for the last two but I need help picking. I was thinking either torch and prof x, apoc and torch, or kitty and tigra. But maybe if you see a hole maybe help fix that.

    I just went in for the first time and decided to just get the first two paths done. I would NOT recommend going in unless you plan on taking it all. I could have done it all, but that Korg was ridiculous. I nuked him down with Herc but used too many revives. I’ll be studying counters so that I can handle him better next time.

    Hey, do you think this team will be fine

    R4 Kitty
    R4 Apoc
    R3 AA
    R3 Nimrod
    R3 Tygra

    I have overseer at r3 sig 200 but was wondering if I could just use AA for the fights you recommend as I prefer playing Kitty with the synergy and she will probably be the one I used for %70 of fights

    Thank you

    roster pics





    Can u help me make a team? I'm really afraid about Terrax
    terrax will be tough. best counters include awakened herc, high sig namor, and quake. without one of those three, it'll be pretty tough. someone else can give you suggestions if there's a counter i'm missing
    Ghulk should work vs Terrax, no? Maybe Sorcerer Supreme as well

    @Siliyo I'd recommend

    Herc, Nimrod, Apoc, Archangel, Torch. Pretty much the same as mine, but use Archangel for Doom. Make sure you keep Torch's pre fight for sasquatch. And you can use Torch for Mojo if you prefer him to Archangel.

    Do you think that would work for you? Any champs you wanna switch, or fights you aren't sure on?
