    How about Iron Fist getting patched? He’s the unspoken god that keeps getting forgotten

    Look up vids of Thor vs WS. I believe 8 hits was the record?

    In the first iterations of war, they made stun immune and debuff immune LINES to protect against Thor. Widow was overlooked until thorns popped up and then she was a must-have for top tier wars. Switch wrecked and still may be the best 4* mystic attacker even after her “adjustment”.

    Something like that. Also I heard of someone stacking eight breaks in the old days but I can't find a record of it. There is a video of someone stacking seven armor breaks pre-12 and then landing a medium attack that doesn't crit but still lands for over 66k of damage. And that's a 3* Thor. If you could parry well then 11.x Thor's damage was completely bonkers.

    If you think Blade today is as good as those four in 11.x, you either didn't play them in 11.x or you have amnesia.

    You’re wrong lol. When in t2 of current war every team is the holy trinity of spark GR and blade. R4 defenders everywhere and both teams get 30 defender kills? Lol bro you’re crazy.

    blade and spark are by far the best champs right now. However, do not compare to 11.x champs.

    Are you kidding? Blade can't powerlock stunlock perma regen with 80k l2s like SW did. He can't 500k+ l3 like thor did. He can't slice through every node on every map like DS did with his pb regen amd damage. He can't reduce every champs abilities down to 0 with no synergies lile Bw did. You are absolutely wrong if you think Blade is better than those first 2. He's not even close. He barely sniffs the leg of Strange.

    This sums up the entire thing. And Incase you don’t believe how the descriptions, here’s proof of Thor being just as broken as they said https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=LWO3VpEbVJU

    Ya blade is basically unusable trash compared to pre 12.0 switch

    In war. Use a current scenario. Not some random RoL WS slashing by Thor. Hats irrelevant and doesn’t matter. What fight. In war. Can blade not handle? What node and champ combination can blade not take down.

    I’ll give you multiple scenarios that the “old gods” struggled with in war.

    You guys are trippin lol. All you had to do to stop Thor was make a line of electros lol.

    All you had to do to stop SW was make a line of CW BP lol

    DS? Heal block aboms lol
    And as for Thor hitting for 200000000. Great. How many times did that change a war outcome? Never.

    You don't a 5/65 sig 160 scarlet witch could EASILY solo a 5/65 dorm boss? He would never have any power and your SP2 would prob crit for like 100k

    Watch him try to fight heroes in LOL. You are either trolling or you actually thought there needed to be another Blade is too good post. Boring either way.
  • LeNoirFaineantLeNoirFaineant Posts: 8,636 ★★★★★
    You asked what does Blade struggle against. Also it's nonsense to say that War is the hardest content in the game. If you think that Blade is anything like pre 12.0 SW you're incapable of having a reasonable discussion about the game anyway lol

    You’re right. I should have emphasized this was in reference to war. Not the mediocre walk thru content that we face otherwise.

    How well wwould SW have done in the Black Panther event? CW BP boss that’s bleeds you thru block?

    Cuz I know blade would walk thru it

    There are no 5* DS, Thor or SW, so comparing them to a 5* Blade is not meaningful. Perhaps you should compare a 4* Blade with the pre-nerfed 4* versions of DS/Thor/SW. Most people will agree that DS/Thor/SW are more powerful.

    More true words have never been spoken. But most people aren’t in t3 and above. So most people opinions don’t matter all that much.

    This games a business. Making the game easier for sheep will likely result in the whales not spending.

    That’s what it’s all about in the end. Who cares how big your base is. When your base doesn’t spend $5/year.

    Learn. To. Play.

    Don’t beg for easy content.

    I used my 4* SW to beat the Ming Na event which had nodes specifically designed to shut her down. She would've been just fine lol.

    Would you like me to tell you why they struggled?

    It’s actually quite simple. Had they simply eaten the block damage. Refused to parry and use specials. They could hoard power and regen the whole fight.

    But hey. Not everyone can see how easy that fight is.

    And every matchup you mentioned with the pre 12.0 champs was the same. Thinking Electro would stop Thor or BPCW would stop SW. Even heal block Abom wouldn’t work that well against DS as you just have to avoid him until you get your SP2 and it is game over.

    DS is the weakest case for sure. But if you and used Thor, SW in those days. You hated seeing a CW BP or an electro. It was hard. You had to play well.

    I don’t wanna be dismissive. But if you aren’t in the top 3 tiers of war you won’t hnserstand how how blade has destroyed the entire aspect of the game for us. It’s fken terrible lol. No one ever KOs unless they fall asleep lol. Does that sound like a fun game?
