Hi guys ,need someone to tell me why my boss would place our champions like below.
Normally, I presume MODOK,ultron, Nightcrawler ,eg as good defenders for the boss node,never thought carnage qualify it.But my boss just said there's nothing wrong with it,so can somebody elaborate the strategy behind this ?
Besides,I'm also wondering it's right or not to place Loki on node 53 cause Loki is bad on defense side right?Let alone Loki's sp2 is already unblockable.
And even MODOK had been placed on the node which makes it trigger ability often.
I don't get it all, and appreciate if somebody can explain these to me !

    What im trying to say is your boss doesnt makes sense. Either he is noob in this game or he choose his own champ to be put on strategic node

    Both Carnage and Loki are garnage at defense and should never be picked over Modok (or any other good defender).

    I prefer MODOK on a hidden node personally. Champs who have counters like MODOK shouldn't be visible for attackers to prepare against, they work much better when surprising people. Both Carnage and Loki are awful defenders though regardless of placement.

    Carnage as boss, wow!!
    How high is your boss? Give me some of that stuff.

    Your boss may be relying on defender diversity for extra points. That said, carnage is just trash on offense and defense. I would question your boss if he thinks carnage is a better boss than modok.

    Maybe he is just looking at who has the highest rating and not who makes the beat defender

    Yeah carnage as a boss is a terrible idea. Loki isn't too great either. Modok is one of the best defenders in the game imo. No matter his reason, putting carnage on AW defense at all is a bad idea.

    Another thing to consider is that your final boss doesn't always matter. 99 times out of 100, if your opponent gets to the boss, they will beat them. You just hope to get 2-3 kills from it. The boss does need to be strong enough to hold up while noded, but doesn't necessarily need to be god-tier either.

    The ultimate goal may be more oriented around preventing them from getting to the boss. If you shut down one or two paths, you'll end up winning without even caring who your boss was.
