Time to do something with IMIW

He either needs to be nerfed or if a team has more than 3 in their defense than they get 0 for diversity or Lose points and go negative for diversity. The last 4 AW I have seen 5+ IMIW on the opponents teams each match. Come on Kabam, when you see a defender this much, you know something not balanced with the champ.

    If you see more than 5 of them on a team for each aw, then yes.
    Which I don’t.... I don’t see any of those defenders anywhere near the amount that I see IMIW.

    there are a lot of videos out there on how to beat IMIW. you don't even need a specific champ to do it. you just need to practice how to fight him

    LOL IMIW is one of the easiest defenders to face nowadays. Try intercepting his heavy with your heavy when he is below 15% health.

    Instead of whining about ridiculous nerfs just practice fighting him mate

    Yeah. I agree it’s time to do something.

    He’s too easy to fight. Can we change his sig ability to auto block with 1 armor above 15% instead of 4?

    Armor break cosmics work great against him. I usually get 2 per war and use 4* Hyperion. Use a powerboost and intercept with s2 for added fun.

    Learn to fight him. He’s easy

    IMIW at 5r5 often gets zero kills in higher tiers.

    He does not need a nerf.

    Yay! 5 IMIW = -4 diversity!
    same goes for them Dusas etc. the more the merrier.

    He is an easy fight now a days, corvus venom symbiote spiderman all armor break. For variant korg can kill him easily. You need to practise a lot watch videos. Korg is a large pain in the ass but even then I soloed a tier 4 boss with domino. Every champ gets figured out

    Don't get me wrong, I'm glad that my imiw still gets some kills on aw defense every time, but I'm actually baffled by how unwilling some people are to adapt.

    Imiw is a really really really easy match, once you stop thinking that "wildly tapping and swiping the screen" is a tactic.

    Agreed here. Corvus melts IMIW like butter. Even if you don't have a corvus there's sym spidey, medusa, even freaking cyclops. He loses tons of his value on defense when his armor is gone.

    If you learn how to counter his heavy with a heavy he's pretty easy.
  • If this was May of 2018, I would kind of agree with you.
    I can't remember the last time i saw IMIW get a kill on defense.

    The only reason you see IMIW often is that lower alliances have now pulled him more and more. You are basicallly 6 months behind more advanced alliances. The benefit for you is that there are video tutorials.

    Once you master IMIW like the rest of us, come back to complain about Korg, who should be infesting your opponents' defenses by then.

    I see more Modok than I see IWIM, when he was relatively new, my IWIM was getting minimum 4/5 kills per war, now I am lucky if he gets 1 due to how easy it is to fight him with his mechanics, as people have said there are so many counters out there that will ruin his day it's become an easy fight

    Even korg is getting much easier now. Just a couple months ago it was a guaranteed 2 or 3 kill defender. Now people solo him regularly.

    Like everyone is saying the word of the day is “Adapt”. They will continue to add champs that force you to alter your play style. Learn the counters and practice them

    Adapt n git gud

    Exactly what he said. Do some research on how to beat him. Not all harder champs need a nerf just cause someone can’t beat him. I still can’t beat Korg worth a darn, but im not gonna ask for a nerf for him. Again, adapt n git gud

    some helpful tips in lieu of the typical "git gud"

    - if you're a parry person, there's no parry on his first repulsor hit, so stop that.
    - if he stacks 4 armor buffs, stop hitting him until one goes away.
    - he doesn't like cosmic armor breakers like corvus, medusa, hype, venom, etc. they make him sad.
    - if he has an sp1 loaded, try to keep your distance. it's unblockable.
    - if he's duped, pay attention to his health while holding on to your sp3. when he hits around 18%, hit your sp3.
    - if he's unduped, slap him silly

    not difficult, but compared to, say, unduped OG Iron Man, he requires paying attention to other than button mashing.

    i love seeing IMIWs on defense, especially if they're preceded by ultrons, dominos and thor rags - well, my corvus loves them the most...

    How do people struggle with specific defenders? Each one has a fairly solid counter, Korg is manageable with a Magik, Voodoo, Morningstar. IMIW is destroyed by Corvus and Melted by Hyperion. Iceman is Wrecked by Sabretooth, Corvus, and any champ provided you have enough health to live the coldsnap, nightcrawler is laughable, Medusa is fodder for a Hood, Venom, Ghost Rided, Killmonger, Loki, Magik, Morningstar and many more.
