    It’s one abyss fight.


    If anything Apocalypse is the best mutant because he’s making all these people good.

    So what? More Abyss fights will come in time. You’ll find anything to hate on. The agenda stinks.

    Apocalypse might just be the best mutant uno. He’s not just so good on his known, he makes so many other mutants insane.

    Ok, won't lie, it was quite impressive. But I question it's practicality.

    It’s practical. 2 slots on the team, just like Sabretooth/Sasquatch, and then bring a Collector counter, a mystic, and Torch or Void.

    BG brought Sabretooth, Sasquatch, Void, Corvus, and Killmonger

    Someone could bring Cable Apocalypse Void/Torch Sym Supreme and Corvus/Aegon and that’s still a 5 man team

    Saying that’s impractical is pathetic. Cable is insanely powerful.

    Never said it was impractical, I was questioning that thought. Also referring to the Seatin video as he went all out.

    But yeah Cable with Apocalypse, as much as I'll hate to say, he is actually good. Like Seatin said, it's bothers me that it's another "Parry + Heavy" champ but I won't deny that he becomes pretty good.

    Sorry if it seemed like I said that you specifically said it was impractical, I didn't mean that. I know you were questioning it. I just meant that anyone saying that it's impractical really needs to think about it because it isn't.

    Yay :)

    Why is this more powerful that Domino+Red hulk synergy? same 2 hit heavy. Incinerate instead of Degen. I think it is a good synergy, but I don't think it will make me use Cable+Apoc more. Red gaurdian+Abom synergy made Abom very good. Don't see a bunch of Abom videos now do we?

    Looking at the video he’s averaging about 40k damage per heavy (looking at the ROL fights, not Thing). You have to take into account that it’s a rank 3 6* with suicides and full boosts. Don’t let a CCP vid get you too overhyped as these numbers won’t be the realistic average fight.

    Apoc is a necessary synergy and White Mags is recommended to get the reduction to poison damage for good sustain, as well as a damage boost and some slight utility that can help with debuff immunity and Limber.

    Compare this to Domino who does closer to 50k damage on average per heavy as a rank 3 6* with suicides and full boosts with her trinity. She does not get sustain but does have higher average block proficiency.

    Overall, I would say they are pretty comparable tbh. I wouldn’t run with Cable trinity unless I was running full suicides since he gets very good sustain but he still seems pretty solid without it. Without suicides it’s a toss up between the two. Honestly it would probably come down to who I would want as my synergy partners more than anything.

    You ARE crazy
  • KDSuperFlash10KDSuperFlash10 Posts: 5,869 ★★★★★

    And you already have enough threads about Cable and the Abyss. And you know that as well, and will reply confirming that.
    So this one wasn't necessary. Next time add it to your previous one

    I've only made one smart guy

    As someone who has finished the Abyss, I'm really not convinced that Cable is a "new god of the Abyss" as you've so claimed (twice). That implies that he can take problematic matchups and make them easier to handle, subsequently saving you resources on your runs. This is precisely the reason why champs like Aegon, Doom, Fury, Void, and Torch are so sought after by those venturing into the Abyss.

    Cable, however, does not do this.

    He is, at most, a potential substitute for Aegon. There's no denying that Cable as a Horseman has fantastic damage per hit via his heavy degenerations. But this playstyle will require you to parry a hit for every hit that you land, and the chip damage alone will cost you more resources than you'd think (especially the case against Tech champions, where you'll be facing higher block penetration). Seatin was able to mitigate this in his video via the Magneto HoX synergy, but I doubt many players would be inclined to do this.

    TLDR: It's a nice solo, undoubtedly - but in my eyes this is not enough to warrant the kind of Abyss-centric value that you seem to have attributed to him.

    Very insightful. Thank you for your viewpoint.

    Yes, before this thread I had only made one. @will-o-wisp said that I have "enough threads" suggesting that I've made a lot. I have not.

    Everytime I see an Apoc pfp and cable in the forum title, I tell myself "Welp, guess that's enough forum surfing for the day"

    could domino do it faster at r3 and if thing wasn't immune?

    Considering I haven’t seen domino vs anyone being great in abyss I’m saying no
    she has been main clearer for a few people

    That's a nice 1 fight. Very nice. But not even close to the kind of proof needed for the ridiculous claim "Cable, a new god of the abyss." Let's see him run an entire path with that team with Cable as the main clearer. That happens and I'll happily eat some pie

    So yea, you're still crazy.

    Well said
  • Lightburn22Lightburn22 Posts: 326 ★★
    I love the synergy for cable but I hate these videos sometimes because there is no way you are bringing this team to any path in abyss. It’s ok to showcase This in endgame content that is realistic, but I hate when some YouTubers do these unrealistic teams and use them for 1 fight and say portray them like they would use it in abyss. If you are just doing for a fun fight just call it that. Which he did just call it a solo. Not that it’s a good lane clearing abyss team
