    Unblockable is perfectly fine when it's on specials as easy to dodge as cap marvel is

    Someone dares me to do that, I remove all the autoblocking and unblockable champs from their map and put No Retreat, Invade, Biohazard, and Explosive Personality as global buffs.

    Probably not going to happen. I'm not going to say 'git gud' cause it is basically an unhelpful trollish comment. I'm going to advise to get a champ which can withstand unblockable attacks and can mitigate auto-block. Kabam has released two champions who can block unblockable attacks, Symbiote Supreme and Mr. Sinister, but if you don't have neither then I would suggest Mordo.

    I must say myself that Mordo isn't a terrible champion, he's kind of a screw-up champion. If you're not so proficient in dexterity, his ability to go un-unblockable (?) after 0.5 seconds will help you. If you hit an auto-block, get parry-stunned and the opponent counterattacks with a basic attack, Mordo will evade that attack and deal a degen. It will take time to master him, as keeping up his furies when charging a heavy attack makes him a bit tricky. But you'll find that the SP2 will wreck Captain Marvel with all her furies.

    I would actually explicitly advise against resorting to special abilities to deal with every challenge. It is something you can resort to in complex situations where all else fails, or where a champion with an ability counter is particularly useful. But in general, if you don't learn to deal with these kinds of effects with fighting tactics, eventually they will overwhelm you. And it will cause you to think the game is trying to get you to spend money, when practice is free.

    I have to respectfully disagree with you. It is obvious that Kabam intends to make this game harder with unavoidable damage like unblockable attacks, and at the same time providing the necessary champions to counter that. I expect that pure skill will simply not be enough in certain situations, and make you into using the champions that are designed for that instance. I believe Kabam is tired of the current rigid meta which is basically 'bring your best synergy team and/or god tier champions in any given fight'. Champion requirements are just the beginning, Kabam will push you to diversify your roster. Champions like Mordo who were a laughing stock will become all this sudden useful and worthy spending resources on. So don't think 'git gud' is enough, or translate 'git gud' in 'bring the right champion in the right fight'.

    The thing that annoys me is the “heal block on reversal”

    Of all the BS on nodes... that's the one that gets you fired up?

    You're a better person than me... I finally had a smh moment in 3.2 of EQ against biohazard Abom.

    Champions and champion abilities have different advantages, and Kabam is acting to diversify which champions provide different advantages in different situations. But those advantages are useless without the skills to leverage them. Without a hammer you can't just use skill to drive in a nail. But a hammer without skill is just a lot of broken thumbs.

    You're always going to have to play the hand you're dealt when it comes to roster. But the higher your skill level, the less capability you will need out of your roster.

    You specifically mention unblockable attacks. I have never, ever specifically brought in a champion that has an unblockable ability counter into content to help with unblockable attacks or unblockable specials. Anyone who needs them will always have a disadvantage compared to players like me that deal with those effects with skillful play. And that also means the devs can throw harder content at players with those skills because they will still succeed, and those that don't and are just waiting for the right champion counter will find complaining about the fact they can't seem to pull one will land on deaf ears, because enough other players will not have that problem to validate the difficulty of the content.

    If it’s basic attacks, that’s an outrage, but with a special, it’s fine as long as it can be possibly dodged unlike war machines SP1

    Don't forget rage and nullify fails

    Honestly my favorite node is 'lags at start; defender launches unblockable sp2'

    Git Gud

    JK. Yeah it's pretty funny how they add new champs that are OP, then have to make even more OP champs to best the ones that they added before. Literally the only bad champ this year had been Diablo

    I really don't get how "git gud" is considered a troll comment in any given situation.
    If there is a way to simply play around a game mechanic with skill instead of a specific counter, then this is a legitimate piece of advice.
    Getting better at the game is way more satisfying than pulling a great champ. Sure, there will always be situations that seem to be really hard to overcome. But instead of blaming the game and opening a thread about it, did you even try to learn how to play around auto-block/auto-evade/unblockable/etc.? Feel free to flag me, but I'm genuinely curious about whether you eben tried.
