Sentry's Signature Ability

Okay I just can't not talk about this sig anymore. It's a pure cash grab signature ability. If you don't have him high sig, you have to be above a certain health to carry your charges from the previous fight. This is ridiculous. No matter your opinions on Sentry, this sig is just unacceptable. In my opinion, it should even be changed. Why should the user be punished because they lost health and lose all their hard earned charges? Keep in mind you need 40 hits in a fight just to acquire one.

    Wouldnt even level him up until they can fix him. Sabretooth increases his attack after 10 hits by procuring a permanent fury buff, while Sentry takes 40 hits per charge (and only if you have the Champion synergy) and a health requirement for it to carry over.

    Tell me, how is that fair?

    Its not fair, but then again neither are most things. Honestly though it's just a stupid, awful sig ability and just a shame that such an awesome character got saddled with such a poor ability, but that's the breaks. Considering he's already been tweaked since his release I'm not expecting a rework in the near future, so Sentry is a for fun arena champ and nothing more.

    Its a shame too, because his SP2 is nuts after 5 warps. But to jump over that many hoops is just insane.

    sentry is one of the worst n poorly designed, animated and over all very badly thoughtout character, cant even call him half backed! they put all their hardwork on making void that month who is like 100x more useful and worth every rankup material u have for science class, if anything sentry needs entire rework on him including the basic attack animations, community needed him to be so great and they couldnt deliver at all.
    his basic animations are slow and laggy, redhulk or og hulk has better combos and gameplay mechanics them him, he really shouldnt be such a trash and should have some value in every roster he is in.
    if they again rework him ,pls i hope he gets better animations ,

    I made the mistake of putting my 5* undupped Sentry to R4 and he is totally useless. In my opinion, his mechanics isn't completely bad, it just needs to be rebalanced.

    Signature ability percentage should be increased (at sig 1, warps would persist above let's say 35%).

    Another option is to lower the amount of hits needed to gain warps (from 40 to 20 for ex.).

    Third option could be increasing his regen after SP3, which would make his signature ability a bit reasonable.

    However, the numbers need to be balanced. In the comics, he is very overpowered. I think it's a shame that he's so weak in mcoc (as well as Phoenix btw). He's my fave character too btw.

    Wait at sig 200 the required health is 0%? So which means that he is basically only playable basically at around sig 100?

    I've had sentry since day 1 of his release. I was super excited to pull him but after trying him out for a few months I moved him to my arena fodder teams and forgot about him. His rampup takes far too long and he has the power of a blown lightbulb. Only champ I've ever been disappointed to pull and I have 6* unduped antman juggs janefoster and cable

    I think he has good animations, that’s his only redeeming quality, IMHO

    That should not be a thing,it's simply a stupid thing to have.I like Sentry but he's trash because of this.They should have made that different for example if the health was lower than the health from the sig. the lower his bonus damage from the state he would be in gets depending on the health.

    200 combo meter for 1.5 seconds of unstoppable is just astonishingly awful. And its not even guaranteed until max sig lol

    Sentry with Aegon+Champion does kill Rol Juggernaut in 100 hits if used properly

    If used well he hits 25k sp1, 80k sp2 and 80k total damage with 3 heavies

    Sequence:

    Just do combos untill u have 5 warps

    After...

    Dont throw sp1
    Go for heavy state if it activates. If it doesnt just go for first sp2
    After it you should throw sp1
    After you gather power till sp2


    There is only 1 possible way to have always enough power in exact moment for max damage

    If you dont use this sequence you will never have enough power for usage the state you have
