Is there a place for p2099 in this game?

TheManMythLegendTheManMythLegend Posts: 4,275 ★★★★★
So i did take this man up to r5 before his buff came out and when the update hit i did some testing but was running suicides at the time which wasnt really ideal for him, but i did see some potential. i havent really touched him much since so it was about time he got a video.

Personally i do like him and feel he will have his uses. hes got some good burst built up and i do enjoy keeping the foes power down. i think if he had a con it would be long fights at like maybe 400k+ health but honestly not a lot of content released are at that point yet, the reason those matches would turn some people away from him tho is because you preferably wanna get a s2 in after his battery gets full, this will give him so much more dmg, but also drain his power a bit and as soon as your battery reaches 0 it can feel like a long and grueling way back up there again where all his utility and dmg comes from.

another takeaway that i personally dont like is his heal block, i tried a fight against a x23 and because of her constant regen and him heal blocking her there was just no real way to get his battery up so the dmg was kept low. with all that said tho i do feel he is a solid champion. obviously there are better champions out there but i dont think he is someone you should feel sad about pulling.

    For players with high end rosters, probably no place for him

    But i think the buff was good enough that he's at least usable for progressing players who pull him as an early 5* (as i did on my mini) to clear some act 5 content.

    I really like using a team with p 2099, caiw, and Hyperion when not using suicides. The extra battery start makes power control from the start of the fight real easy when you don’t want to bait specials and the tech/cosmic team for cap is strong as well.

    To be fair i have a high end roster and i did use him im aw once with success. I dont think hes the greatest either but i can def see him clearing content past act 5. If theres a champ you dont like the specials of hes a good way to keep them to a minimum. His animations are cool enough. I think id chuck him in the demi god tier as of right now

    But yeah i do agree on the part that players coming up in act 5 and act 6 tho without any of the top tech champs will find good use for him

    Yeah that sounds good. I have been using him a lot as a synergi for capiw myself. The xtra dmg is great and you got your tech for the petrify

    Keeping the battery up is his problem. He has similar abilities to HB, besides him having the Heal block. I do agree that it’s hard for him to maintain the battery. That’s why I like using HB more. Overall a great champ. Solid gameplay!

    Yeah if you wanna take use of some of his abilities the battery will for sure go fast which is a negative for sure. But just a s2 and s1 spam the rest at r5 at least will keep the battery from draining completely up to around 350-400k health which i dont think is that much of a hinder tbh. The dmg will be solid. I got a few 10k mediums in there and you will be able to keep the foe low on power.

    I will try and showcase higher healthpools some time. This was a bit of a practice run for myself aswell.

    As always i appreciate you taking part in the discussions monke.

    He sits on war defense for most of the time. I’m looking forward to testing him out more in book 2 and the villain variant about to drop. I’m definitely happy with the buff. I also run him with capiw when I use him for monthly quest.

    Oh damn that is awesome! Mines been in defence the whole season aswell and actually been getting some kills here and there in tier 1.

    I would be very interested in seeing some r3 gameplay specially if you can get off the double s2. Maybe with og thor synergi

    I’ll take a look at the OG Thor synergy and see what I can come up with

    Maybe all or nothing since he reduce they power rate up to 90% ?

    I didn’t like him after the initial buff. I only had a 6* undupped. Then I dupped him a few days after the buff.

    I decided to take him more seriously, and paired him up with my R3 CapIW and my R2 NF for the side quest that month with Heal Block and all the small debuffs. He did amazing on Epic level with the Extreme Conditions kit (makes immune for a period) as a R1. Legendary would get him killed eventually even with that team.

    I started to really like him with one play style that made me R2 him. Also, I always run Suicides, so all this is with Suicides.

    With CapIW on the team: stall at the beginning of the fight. No hits is best, but can throw a couple here and there. Get to 100+ Charges.
    Parry/heavy (stun)
    M/heavy (Stun again)
    M/heavy (Stun again)
    Etc.
    run out of charges.

    You will have done a ton of overdrive damage, be close to 3 bars of power while they are maybe at 1 bar of power.

    He is not amazing by himself. Needs synergies to shine. But even just with CapIW he really can shine. Add NF when needed or CGR and he does really well.

    Yeah he is def a option for that node for the most part. You dont want a hyperion on that node still :lol: but it should def be a strong node for him

    Interesting. I havent tried that method myself. Mostly been focusing on s2 then s1. But I will def try it out. Glad you are enjoying him!

    Have you tried him on node that enhance combat power rate ? i want to see how good is he

    I think you def will find use for him. If im not mistaken you havent done act 6 yet and as someone mentioned earlier he will for sure be a good adition to someone coming up who doesnt have the most stacked roster beforehand. So id say thats a good pull

    the bin

    Care to elaborate why you feel that way or are you just in a every champ is trash mood today. you can have your opinion mate but after calling aegon trash you bar seems way to high and i would like to here some reasonings for why you feel the way you do
    i dont have him so hes in the bin for me

    @OneManArmy i can’t seem to play aggressive enough to get the double armor break rotation. (Of course I just tried tonight, so I’ll keep at it) This is how I usually play him just one armor break and special 1s. This was from the last months cavalier difficulty. He is pretty good for power control

    Aww shiet that was you! I actually saw this vid back then! Very great showcase!

    Nice man! Txs!
  • ccrider474ccrider474 Posts: 266 ★★
    I am using him now in act 6.4 for some lanes. Without suicides he is great because you gotta keep spamming sp1. I do pair him with capiw iw though. Gives him faster battery and cap get his petrify and raises his attack by 20% while ai is stunned. Very nice for that parry heavy technique. Think it was last summoner showdown that happy chose punisher 2099 and his opponent chose airwalker as defender and he absolutely obliterated airwalker.

    He is a good champ and handy for a lot of stuff best tech no but is useful for a lot and the fact he has a nice syn with cap makes it all the better. I hate when your syn partner is useless.

    Yeah this is essentially how i feel aswell. Havent felt like i wasted a space when pairing him with cap which is always a good thing. Im glad to see him getting some love after beeing so bad for so long. He was the first featured champ i ever got back when he was first released (as a 4*) and ouff the dissapointment. Cant remember who i was actually going for from the crystal

    That is very true. I r2 my 6 and would r3 if I got the cat. His niche usable is legit
