Reliance on Unstoppable is Boring, Bad Design

Pretty much the title. Nearly every boss or major event for the past 6 months has had some kind of annoying Unstoppable mechanic.

It’s not that it’s difficult or particularly annoying to deal with, it’s an absolutely overused mechanic that seems to be used as a difficult cop-out, it adds nothing to the gamer’s experience, and you even disable some of the counters to it.

Simply put, this is poor game design, and reusing the same assets month after month after month isn’t giving us much enjoyment. Is it really so hard to come up with a fun mechanic or to at least pretend to space them out a bit?

I’m sorry for the rant. I was highly disappointed in this month’s quest rehashing the same old mechanics.

    She Hulks heavy is a great way to counter unstoppable. With that being said I do agree that they are over using the mechanic but I guess as long as they abuse it I will keep using my shehulk to quest.

    Is there another champ which counters unstoppable?

    Slow Debuff is broken and not working on passive Unstoppable. It did in the beta and isn’t doing it now

    Just use Ronan this month, you won't even see an unstoppable on annihilus

    People have been saying this for months. Every month is basically the same, unstoppable, unblockable or auto block. Good way to lose customers.

  • Spider-Gwen, 550% chance to evade unstoppable

    No, that’s against unblockable special attacks.

    No, that’s against unblockable special attacks.
    It is also worth mentioning, it isn't really possible to "evade unstoppable" because unstoppable is a status effect, not an attack.

    I dont want to have to resort to the same guys to deal with unstoppable I want to change up my roster. Save the node for rare fights

    And both of the Marvel champs who have unstoppable as their core ability (Juggs and Colossus) generally stink.

    Go figure.

    Currently the only 2 champs that CAIW stops their unstoppable. Two of the worst champs that you hardly to never encounter.

    I think we can all now agree that getting Kabam to not use “unstoppable” on their champs is now “UNSTOPPABLE”

    No one stops the new Hela passive unstoppable node, not even She-Hulk Spider-Gwen and Archangel. Working as intended.

    It may be abit boring and annoying yes, but it is predictable and therefore the community wont rage too much about is as they already know how to counter or at the very least wait it out. If kabam introduces alot of new "interesting" nodes, like the recent nano-plague node which makes the robots they've been using against biohazard useless, kabam gets accused of introducing crazy hard nodes for the purpose of cash grabbing. So in a way, reusing existing mechanics but in interesting ways is kind of the safer option IMO.

    But Spider-Gwen & She-Hulk counter the Unstoppable!! Ohh... wait. They don’t? Why???

    That’s not working as intended if the unstoppable node isn’t being stopped by slow
