You’re bad at reverse controls, and that’s ok

Hey there summoners,

I’m here to tell you something a lot of you need to hear: You are likely bad at reverse controls, worse than you think, but most importantly, that’s okay!

I won’t completely plagiarize the post, but you can see where this is going. Just seeing a lot of complaining about the SoS boss. It’s really not that bad, except nerfing 2/10 possible champs for brotherhood of mutants.

Look at the bright side, these challenges help you hone your skills. I hated fighting onslaught, but now I’ve gotten pretty good dexing his SP1.

    This is good point even I learnt to dex sp1 completely in SOS. Before this I don't even bother to dex it..I used to just block it.

    This round is the carrot and next round is the stick. I only try these on the weekend when I can focus. You guys have so much skill and little old me just need to live with reverse control.

    I think there is certain amount of time every individual plays this game & kabam wants more players to play for more time.
    Now for SOS rewards people will have to make that time somehow to practice reverse control switch which is a rare rare node in the game to defeat this fight.
    It's doesn't look like forcing - but it's actually is 😂

    Nobody's forcing you to do anything, if you don't want to do it then don't do it.

    The issue i had was with AI, she'd launch the sp1 the frame the controls are about to switch, which is fine but if it catches you out, she'd sit and block til the instadeath node triggered and killed you. Wouldn't even try to attack you. I just force closed until I got the solo on all 3 milestones as the fight wasn't all that hard.

    It's like saying nobody is forcing you to eat but u need to eat food to survive 😂.
    Similarly u need to do it to get the maximize rewards to stay descent level in the game as July 4th is coming and it will just boost some account way ahead.

    Your account will survive if you don't do SoS, what kinda dumb analogy is that lmao.
    If you want the rewards then practice and get good, you want a participation trophy for endgame content which is meant to be hard?

    That's not really an ai issue the timer is just too short.
    It's pretty easy to avoid tho, either parry them, use a striker, use a special or simply keep dashing back and create some distance so she doesn't throw her specials. Worked everytime

    U just bring it to my first comment where I said there is a certain amount of time every individual gives to the game. & What is Practice 😂😂 that's demanding more time dedicate .
    So u ultimately said give more time & practice that's what I said 😂😂

    Spot on… as someone who sucks at reverse controls and revived my way through Necropolis Grandmaster, I’m very thankful to have this simpler fight to focus specifically on reverse controls on a low-risk, medium-reward opportunity.

    I don’t think something like that is coming. I think it will be closer to the Onslaught or Dani fight that makes the fight doable with practice and mainly focused on his SP1 and Killer Instinct.

    Now, after this topic title, we can wait some upset player to post something against Jax or Kabam as revenge

    You’re bad at making a decent game, and that’s ok

    🤦‍♂️

    You know would make this fight impossible? Onslaughts AI. At least Gwen will reliably throw her specials

    And this fight allows you to use DoT effects. And the chip damage is almost nothing, so you don’t even need to heal up when you revive.

    The dots pretty much tick at 90% less dmg lol

    The DoT is active when you’re using the special though. I got like 2 bleed ticks off with Aegon before the protection and Starky does some additional shock damage during his special

    Any DOT is really to kill her after your last special when she's at 1%, as the special itself even with the multiplier won't.
