Champs that you hate to fight, even with counters

PantherusNZPantherusNZ Posts: 1,621 ★★★★
Who are some champs in the game that you just hate to fight, even if you have relative counters to them? LIke you hit them in Arena, or in Quests where you brought champs for the nodes rather than the champion, and you just think "Ugh, not THEM!"

For me it's Green Goblin, between the regen, the limited power gain, there's something about his movements that I struggle to reliably parry him, and of course I try to dex his SP2 every time and get clipped by it like 3/4 times, hate him!

Who are yours?

    Bullseye for the reasons everyone else said and photon, because if you have a mediocre counter and mess up even slightly (counting her charges, not pushing her over a bar of power at certain times), which is easy to do in certain metas/nodes, you get punished so hard.

    Korg. I’m still hit or miss on fully evading his sp1. I need to practice against my own now that I have the 7*.

    Bullseye will probably be next. Haven’t had to fight enough yet to the point I can’t avoid him. I’m assuming that it’s just how his AI is wired, but he refuses to NOT throw his damn sp1 when he does his little evade thing. Scorpion or BWDO will be a little “gotcha! counter-attack.” No…Bullseye’s like: here’s a full blown “f—- you” right to the face.

    @jcphillips7 I found the key was to evade just as he puts his foot down, from there it's rhythm. Dork Lessons had a great video on it - good luck!

    I hate photon but not as much as bullseye. I can’t evade his specials to save my life. That goes for photon too.

    * Photon- mantis does it pretty decent but there's still room to mess up
    * Onslaught - don't think there's anything that outright shuts him down and I have a hard time dexing his sp1 sometimes
    * Bullseye - I don't need to explain why, bro is plain annoying
    * Dust- She is bullseye levels of annoying and even fewer counters

    I absolutely hate Dust, especially in Incursions.

    Unless I've been extremely lucky before, I don't know what was up with the nodes this month - toughest zone 25 push I've had.

    A ton of hard to avoid damaging debuffs (without swapping out for counters) i.e. caltrops, biohazard and then Dust herself. Pile on top of that nodes that were cleansing the defender. And finally let's throw in some tranquility so you get beaten down by debuffs and the defender is clean as a whistle and you're buff less with 1hp.

    Photon (in and outside of crush tactic), Bullseye, Weapon X, Quicksilver (on crush tactic, path 9).

    Abs Man
    Weapon X
    and still… Super Skrull

    Rarely face Bullseye but I’m sure we’ll see more and more of him. Definitely can be a pain in the neck but Storm tackles him pretty quick.

    I'm with the OP on Green Goblin.

    Something about his SP2 animations means that I regularly fail to Dex it properly.

    Dust is annoying with her current EQ nodes - we'll see how bad she is when the nodes aren't tailor-made to be annoying.
