Abomination is God-Tier?! Best “Synergy Buff” since Winter Soldier??

Ya, he seems pretty powerful with these synergies. Of course, like Antman, he needs A LOT of them to be viable... but it’s still cool to see him dish this kind of damage.

    Dork lesson's videos just looked at his new synergy with Red Guardian, why is no player or youtuber talking about this? Like Abomination can now stack poison with a 50% chance on his attacks with the synergy, dealing 70% of the damage? Like seriously, the poisons on the video MELT the opponent, pair that with modok to get some extra poison damage and he goes from a trash, useless champion to an actually useable champion. Like he isn't the best champ in the game, but srsly, he is a hundred times better than he used to be! One of the best synergy Kabam has released!

    I know! Why is no one talking about it? From the bottom of the trashiest to the trash to a poison-demi god!

    No one is talking about it because hardly anyone has Abomination as 6* and almost no one has both Abomination and Red Guardian.

    @Haji_Saab Well, mate, loads of people have 5 or 6 star abominations and when the red guardian crystals come out and they pull a 5 or 6 star red guardian, their abomination will have a use. You're acting like Red Guardian is non-existent and he will never be in the game.

    Ya, but I kinda wish it was with only one champion. But requiring 3-4 different synergies is a bit too much for my taste. Still cool to see this damage out of A-Bomb though.

    Personally I’m ready for the Hulkbuster buff to go live so OG Black Panther can put in some work

    Always had a soft spot for abomination he used to have the best stats in the game not to sure we're he compares now

    Archangel, Doctor Voodoo, Gwenpool, Human Torch, Void... It’s hard to justify ranking up 3 science champs to do what these champs can do better by themselves.

    Depends what for I’d prefer him over gwenpool archangel or voodoo for heal reversal
  • My_SuperiorMy_Superior Posts: 2,040 ★★★★
    Human Torch and Void can also reverse healing, by themselves, without synergies, as science champs... The ability is cool, it’s value as a synergy is questionable.

    You do realise that the Neuros from AA act as a heal reversal?
    No they are a heal block not heal reversal

    Because right now you likely need to spend units or money to get Red Guardian, through crystals or refresh in the 5* arena, that synergy being only available with the 5 or 6 star. Maybe that synergy will become relevant, somehow, when he's added to the regular 5* crystals... but I doubt it will since like others have pointed out, many better champions can do the same by themselves. Still, it's a nice synergy, I agree.

    Yes, Red Guardian will be eventually available to all. But that doesn't change the fact you need to get at least both champions and invest resources into it to be usable. Resources that are spare and can be invested in a single champion that does all but better with no synergies whatsoever (like AA).

    If your favourite character is Abomination (PS A-Bomb is a different character), then yeah sure, go ahead. If Abomination is the first 6* you get and you have a 4* or 5* Red Guardian, sure go ahead. But in all other cases, no don't rank-up Abomination.

    As I said before: synergies are a band-aid, they don't structurally alter a champion. Abomination remains a bad pull. Synergies are made as cash-cows, so you would spend on crystals on getting this new champion. They don't add it to the basic kit as most people already have Abomination and they won't earn money from that. But at a certain point, enough people are getting sick of pulling **** champions and quit. Conveniently, MROC is getting launched so Kabam can start all over again. This game has reached its endpoint and I don't see much evidence Kabam is seriously investing in it anymore but rather trying to keep the whales with endgame content.

    I don't know why people complain about synergy buffs. They are easier to implement than kit buffs, make more money for Kabam, and make the game more fun imo. Sure it takes time to pull the champ but at least featured crystals make it easier.

    Using the same champions over and over can get tiring but if I had Red Guardian I could spice up my content runs and use Abomination or Unstoppable Colossus. Let's face it: Kabam is never going to go back and buff champions like @AlphA101 suggests. It's just not practical for them and would make them less money. Synergy buffs are the only way for some of the old champions to find some use other than full on reworks.

    But the main issue is that Kabam isn't releasing enough of these synergies. We need many more such as ones for Cable, Punisher 2099, Dormmammu, Sentry, Green Goblin, Phoenix, Surfer, Carnage, etc. There's a whole lot of champions that require simple fixes that can be brought through synergy buffs similar to how Mordo finally got some fury duration increase synergies. Synergies like Antman's, Winter Soldier's, UC's, Korg's, Beast's, Thrag's, Mephisto's, and Abomination's allow them to be used in endgame content when paired with some of the best champions in the game. They might not be the best options to use but their damage and quirky utilities sure make them fun.

    Why is everyone silent on the buff that unstoppable colossus got? Where’s the love for him with the red guardian synergy?

    These are things that didn't need Red Guardian coming out to implement so the response is tepid.

    People are Yay! but also Boo! because they could have and should have done it already a long time ago especially since we've been pleading with them to hurry up with the buffs, stop wasting time with supersloooow reworks that aren't needed, and to stop tying this process into new champ releases. Does anyone think that without buffs for Abomination and UC, Red Guardian wouldn't still sell all the crystals and make Kabam a ton of money? Those synergies could have been released forever ago as solos.
