Since we are talking nerfs

Why has there never been a champion nerfed or tuned down for DEFENSE? Every nerf is because a champ is too powerful on offense. What about defense? You nerfed She-hulk because she was the best counter for 6.2 Champion, that's the truth, admit it or not, we all know that's why. So now you leave us with Sym Supreme and Cap IW for 6.2 Champion counters. That's it. Is that balance? That fight is complete garbage. 6.2 Sinister is complete garbage. Ghulk(with Hemdal/Angela) and Cap IW are only counters. Is that balance? In alliance war, All or Nothing Thing, 2 counters, Quake and Stark. Aegis intercept Thor Rags, Aspect of War Korg/Hype, Unstoppable buffs Jugs, ect. These are all way too overpowered defensive placements. Would you ever give us a champ that read "this champ cannot die unless the defender dexed out of your specials five times". No freaking way! That would be WAY too overpowered. This is my point. Please start looking at tuning down defensive champions. Thing, Korg, Annihilus, Havok, Modok, Spider Gwen, Wasp, DOMINO all are way too overpowered on defense. Yes I know there are counters to all of them but still these champs are too good on defense, they should be looked at getting tuned down as well. Balance!!!

    She hulk can still counter the champion, it just wont be as easy. Also there are other counters you did not list such as the hood.

    In addition your 6.2 sinister list is incomplete, Captain marvel movie works there very well aswell for example. I would recommend actually figuring out counters.

    You should not call for nerfs for things when you have an incomplete understanding of them.

    Good catch! Typing error. I meant Cap Movie instead of Cap IW as Sinister counter.

    There are actually more than captian movie, such as nebula, quake, OG vision, the last 3 with synergies.. Again you dont understand the game deeply enough to be calling for nerfs...

    Also your main premise is faulty as they have tuned down encounters before, such as the IW thanos event that they over tuned.

    When did the forums every not talk about nerfs? Every time someone misses a parry there's a thread asking about the "silent nerf"

    Most of the problems listed have to due with nodes attached to defenders. That doesnt mean the defender is too overpowered. Simply adjust the nodes and the existing defenders could be beaten easily. Thats why i dont think any champion is overpowered on defense. Its the nodes that make them overpowered.

    You know what I haven't seen in a while is complaint or nerf threads about EQ bosses.

    You realize there has to be some difficulty in terms of content as well right? Not everything has to be a walk in the park or have 100 champs that counter everything. All the champs you listed have lots of counters save for Thing.

    I disagree. Your argument would be valid if you are comparing the same class of champs. A 3* should beat a 3* and a 5* should beat a 5*. If 3* champs can beat anyone what is the point of progressing. Thats the reason they have 4*, 5*, and 6* champs. They get stronger and more powerful than the level below them. Why should any 3* be able to take out 5* champs? I dont see how that makes sense. Maybe i am missing something.

    Korg can be beat in duel with any champion - I remember seeing people 2* SL a r4 or r5 5* Korg. His damage can be avoided though a lot don’t do the light intercept on him (including myself). Now place Korg on some AWD nodes and things can change up a bit. Havok / dominos don’t fall into same boat - specific counters, depending on node, are usually needed

    I'm just bringing up the point that never has a champ been nerfed for defense. Why? Yes I remember Ice Phoenix and Thanos IW! I mean playable champs with their own built in abilities, not EQ champs noded up. I just think if Kabam is going to nerf champs on offense, they also need to look at nerfing champs for defense. Simple statement.

    Changing md was pretty much a nerf to defence of a whole class

    This is just my personal opinion. I think that every rank 5 5* champ that Kabam releases should be beatable with EVERY 3* champion in a DUEL. So no nodes, no extra HP, just a duel. If that is not possible, I do not think any champ should have that much defensive firepower.

    Well, that would explain why you think defenders are too strong.

    In all honesty the only real nerfs that happened were during 12.0. You call these changes to the likes of She Hulk a nerf but its not a listed ability. I get she was able to do it but doesn't mean she was supposed to. Its a fine line to tread as she's only been "playable" for a few months. No one ranked her before her buff and she was considered one of the worst in the game. So its possible they werent really aware that buffing her would result in what it did.

    After 12.0 there hasnt been any nerfs that I can recall. They changed MD but as many people who were upset, more people had been calling for changes to it forever.

    Gwenpool had a very similar changed to a unintended ability like She Hulk. Again, never part of her kit and it was extremly OP.

    AA was fixed and wasnt a nerf. Yes I know a mod confirmed it but use common sense, stun immune shouldn't be stunned.

    Drax was another change that happened but again, people ranking up a champ to fight 1 single champ had it coming. Plus none of draxs abilities ever said he could bypass astral evade.

    The fact is there isnt anyone on defense that is overly troubling. If you are having trouble, its probably your skill and not that the champ needs adjusted.

    Again, I get that people view these changes as nerfs but a true nerf was the champs of 12.0. Nothing compares to those.

    Also someone beat a 5* rank 5 korg with a rank 2 Havok and Seatin beat one with a rank 4 3* Magneto and someone beat a 5* Havok with a 3* Archangel so yeah it's possible to beat them with 3*, it's juat hard to do.
