Alright. You can laugh/insult me now.

So anyone that knows me on these forums knows that I don’t like Corvus. At all. In fact, I think he’s pretty overrated, especially without suicides.

I stand by what I’ve said.

And yet, I did this. My 21st R5 equivalent champion. So why did I do this. Well it’s two pronged:

1. He’s really useful in incursions. That’s my main reason for taking him up since he gains so much more reach with the hacks

2. Abyss. After watching Brian’s stream, it looks like I’m going to be using his team for a completion (look out for another thread asking for help on this soon). Corvus is on that team so he might as well be R5.

So alright. Let the abuse rain down. This is what I deserve for trash talking him.

    You shouldn't run him without suicide. It's a waste.
  • RockypantherxRockypantherx Posts: 2,789 ★★★★★

    Now prepare to actually find out why he is the best champion in the game, for 90% of the available content. No synergies, no particular gameplay needed. Just sheer effectiveness.

    We’ll see. I have my significant doubts.

    I actually find myself using him less and less these days. He’ll always be on my AQ team though

    Hes not even the best cosmic tho. And you even place him above ghost and quake?

    You just contradicted yourself.
    No he didn’t, the game is more than just aq. There is event quests, side quests, aw, variants, story mode. The game is pushing you away from using him by having paths that he cannot counter

    I don’t like Iceman either

    Quake and Ghost are some of my favourite champs though

    LOL

    You can't quite trash talk about Corvus anyway, you may like it or not but he is a solid champ.

    Abyss with Corvus? hmmm prepare to spend those units man

    He is a top 3 Cosmic with Sparkles and Hyperion.

    Ghost by herself (without either full synergy team or suicides or a node that inflcts DoT which she can convert) is nowhere near Corvus. If / when at least one of the above apply, that's another story. But Corvus needs nothing of the above.

    Quake is admittedly on a class of her own. OTOH, (for me at least) she is frustrating to use and no fun at all.

    Corvus is the definition of fun, simplicity and effectiveness.

    Thats the thing tho. For you she isnt that great without all those things which is fine. But if you can play her you dont need either of those things you mentioned. Quake and ghost is highly considered the nr 1 and nr 2 champ by the majority for a good reason. Whos which depends on who you ask.

    He's not a bad champ, I just think he's overrated. Would much rather have Hyperion or CMM. And he's much further down without suicides in my opinion

    And he's surprisingly effective for Abyss, probably the second best option for Collector besides AEgon

    wait.. people think corvus is bad? I remember him being one of the best champs in the game

    Pretty much. Although I like them for different reasons. I like Quake because my 4* took me through so much and I figured out dex style on my own. Always felt somewhat smug about that

    Ghost I actually like the character, design and animations, plus I was one of the few people who saw her potential before Pete blew her up. Wasn't on the forums much at the time so I can't really evidence that.
  • PrentexPrentex Posts: 115
    I use Corvus on AW attack an AQ all the time, also in EQ and Incursions.
    But with those higher and higher health pools i rarely use him in act 6 anymore. Have better options for it. I just hate running out of charges lol

    For the things i use him he is still one of the best options tho

    He's not bad, just not as good as people say.

    I don't know why everyone interprets overrated to mean that someone thinks a champion is bad

    Ghost is still way above corvus without synergies. Not quake level without them, but way better than corvus. You just need to practice her without them.

    Plus he is the second best collector option because the strategy against him is just to nuke as fast as possible.

    Also, I still believe strongly that corvus is overrated yet I have been debating taking him up to use in aq.

    He will be good against Massacre on Abyss. Been hunting for him.

  • IryseIryse Posts: 306 ★★
    DUDE, I oneshot act 5 boss and one revived cav boss sentinel with this guy. I am not even a super skilled player and still this guy hits like a bulldozer without synergies or missions.

    Your level of hypocrisy is beyond god tier lookin at that maxed out corvus.

    why dont you sell him off for 275 6* shards then

    The irony was kind of the point of my post.

    And he doesn't hit like a bulldozer without missions. That's just wrong. 3.5k mediums with suicides without missions. Big Whoop.

    because you can’t sell five stars.

    Also, it’s his opinion that he doesn’t like Corvus, and people can have their own opinions.
