Summoners, due to a technical issue, this week's series of Alliance Quests will be cancelled at 4pm PT. There will not be any Rewards for this series. The next series of Alliance Quests will start on April 18 at 12pm PT. We will be assessing the impact on Alliances and compensating accordingly, as well as returning Alliance Tickets.

Was there ever any elaboration on why Cyclops was considered one of the best champs in MCOC?

Title says it all. Believe it or not, I really enjoy using Cyclops (I prefer blue over Red). More so because I am a fan of the character, but overall (with the right synergies) he can be fun to play for lower level questing. I've seen little jokes here and there about how Cyclops is one of the best and initially I thought this fell in the same category as the "GROOT is the BEST" memes that show up everywhere. Apparently its been said that Cyclops is one of the most effective champs. I'm curious if there has been any elaboration on this theory. Karate Mike did a video on using Cyclops, but he's great with just about every champ in the game. Is there something that I am missing? Cyclops is fun to use, but I haven't seen anything that makes him come across as overly effective.

  • According to some data in the past, Cyclops was one of the most used options to fight against Magik's, I think

    Kabam miike said he was very EFFECTIVE in war thus people discovered his potential to end just about any content in the game

    It's a running joke based on a Kabam Mike comment which fueled a series of responses and memes.



    Now Cyclops decimates AQ
    This meme saw the future

    Cyclops is the best Havok counter in the game and as we all know Havok is the toughest defender in the game meaning Cyclops is the best attacker in the game

    I wouldn't say he's the best counter. His damage still sucks, bit it's true he can eat his specials, including his sp3 while taking 0 damage. There are better counters with more damage, ifou play well enough to not push him to an sp3. Anyone with an armor up buff or consistent power drain can be just as effective while taking havok down faster.

    This is why he is the best. Little throwback but still valid to this day.

    I miss Lil Joh's commentaries. They were actually pretty funny.

    Cyclops can literally never die vs Havok tho because he takes 0 damage from all of his energy special attacks and plasma

    Wow. The comic with the Ghost, Quake, etc. is hilarious. Here's hoping he gets a buff sooner than later. Thanks for the feedback everyone.

    I can't stop laughing.
    My 3* Groot can finish that fight faster.

    But how did they use him effectively? For which fights?

    probably a flare, stun vulnerability, life transfer, icarus, rising sun, heavy assault, poison vulnerability, incinerate vulnerability, got a light, toxican toxicant, dash vulnerability, foresight rocket racoon with role reversal

    You should be a car salesman...(KDSuperFlash10 slaps cyclops on the back). This guy is amazing for Havok's.

    I let Havok hit Cyclops and he died as quick as I expected. I admit his specials don't do anything, but he still takes regular damage and is a noodle for attack in most scenarios. I'll gladly take Colossus or Warlock to a Havok fight over Cyclops and have someone useful the rest of the path in the mean time.

    If you like that matchup that much though, continue to do controversial you. Not selling me on it though.

    Ok?





    No way I'm bringing a Cyclops to counter Havok when any armor up champ can handle him. Cyclops biggest advantage is not taking damage from Havok's specials, so I can see the value if there's some crazy power gain like all or nothing, but I'd still take Warlock for that match up so I'd have a counter for the entire path.

    Cyclops still takes damage from Havok's egular hits and not gonna waste rank up resources for a single niche fight with lackluster damage and no ability to use my own specials... Argue however you want (controversial as usual), but he's still not great for most content. Maybe one day, he'll get a real buff that will change more minds, but an AQ participation ribbon buff ain't gonna do it.

    A constant reminder of wasted resources.
