Problem Champions that shouldn't be problems

PantherusNZPantherusNZ Posts: 562 ★★★
I'm curious - does anyone else have champions that, for reasons completely unknown, they constantly struggle to fight?

Like, there's nothing particularly difficult about them - no evasion, auto-block, or anything like that - but whenever you fight them when they're suitably buffed up they routinely kick your butt.

For me, it's Massacre. Several maps now I've encountered him as an early fight and have restarted the map countless times because he keeps whooping me about.

Please tell me I'm not the only one who gets in a rut like this? :smile:

    I’m slow to bait out Hyperion specials. I can’t fight him without eating an sp3.

    Warmachine and his sp1. Id also say magneto sometimes.

    I'm with you on Masacre. My preferred style is no good against him and if it gets there he always clips me with the first shot if his SP2.

    Aegon rekts me with last hit of his sp1

    Nebula's 2nd special is a pain for me, I always seem to mis-time the dodge for the blast.

    Also Psylocke, I keep forgetting her sp1 has a little bit extra at the end so dash back in and get a boot to the face

    Warmachine and Yellowjacket

    My muscle memory screws me on these two, because I always get hit by their SP1

    Venompool. His animations are so weird. Also DPXF with that stupid power gain. Did I also mention Hulk Rags? I can never evade his sp1

    For whatever reason, parrying Doc Ock is difficult for me. I always mistime it.

    Dr. Octopus: his animations are hard to parry at times and I end up eating a combo where I'm used to parrying and then attacking.

    Magnetos/Dr. Strange: difficulty in evading sp2

    Moon night: weird animations

    Massacre: long sp1 animation and sp2 hard to dodge

    Rhino: random unblockable

    Iron Patriot: sill get hit by sp1 even though I evade

    Venom: sp2 always clips me

    Also Cable. For some reason whenever I try to parry him, I always block too early it seems and I miss the parry.

    Sabretooth isn't necessarily hard, but his animations make parrying him feel real inconsistent, so he can be annoying.

    I've also died way more than I should've against Civil Warriors in 5.4

    The Champion as a war boss. But that will come to an end, as I`ll R4 Voodoo sometime soon and i`ll wipe the floor with him.
    Aside from that, in no particular order:

    - Doc. Oc. - I can't get used to his attack animations
    - Venom - He transforms into The Flash when firing SP2 and hits me more often than I like
    - Magnetos - I usually dash back faster than the SP1 animation and I get smacked with the boulder in the face
    - Antman - Same issue on SP2 as with Magneto. Bonus, I HATE THE GLANCING!
    - Doctor Strange: - Same as Magneto's SP1. Good thing he hits like a noodle.

    Special mention:
    - Absolutely ALL THE CHAMPS in alliance quests, because of the over-defensive playstyle.

    Special mention 2:
    - Champs (or nodes) that kill you without landing a single hit on you if you don't have a specific counter (like Magik's Limbo, the EMP shock, or whatever other stuff's there)

    King Groot and Ms Marvel. I always seem to take hits against them for some unknown reason.

    i have a few, but YJ with an unblockable SP1. i just can't consistently evade that thing.

    agree with cable, that heavy attack is so tilting
