Korg needs a nerf

His a complete badass on defence and I’ve encountered him a few times on arena and now his on time after time arc chapter 5.3 (EPIC) his the only champion by far giving me a hard time.



I don’t know about you lot but since I’m a free to play player I honestly think he needs to be nerfed

    You need a counter and it sucks if you don't, or mad skill. Personally, I wish Armor Break could remove rock shells, like how bleeds remove it on Thing.

    No, he’s not difficult to play around but generally you will take some damage. He does not need to be nerfed because he is a terrible offensive champ so defense is all he has going for him.

    You have a point

    Need a counter and/or high skill play but if you learn him he becomes much easier to manage. There are a good amount of counters these days also.

    Not everyone needs a buff or nerf but yeah.
    His defence abilities are insane.
    I had problems to.
    He is not much of a problem if u have stacked squad.
    True his mechanism is very very difficult.
    Only light attack until shield shattered
    Then u can't dex twice or else he will gain crowd excitement and go unblockble and unstoppable on your ass.
    Actually can't dex twice is a good practice for those going for cavillier tittle.
    It will hugely help them on every pain in the arss "no retreat" node.
    But this node itself just makes this game really difficult. Only mostly 95% players who became cavillier are paid players.
    For free to play players it's next to impossible.
    But may be korg needs a little nurf.
    Like hitting him with his rock charges reflect the damage back. They can remove this.

    Korg is not hard to fight, annoying on defence yes, but not hard at all. Just remeber to not dex when next to him, don't let him Parry you, Use a champ who won't take much damage from the thorns and thats pretty much it. He was designed for defense, he has almost no ofensive capabilities.

    Bring a Regen champ, don't excite Korg. Don't use any special. Don't hit him while he is blocking.

    Yeah ok you cant dodge, you take damage from basic hits.......his entire Special 1 is unblockable and near impossible to dodge last 3 hits....his Heavy Armor breaks and knocks you halfway across screen and everyone abises him for defense......but sure hes NOT hard to play around....uhhu.

    Him being amazing defense means more content with Korg in it! Noticed Korg on most newer quest maps. The games core champs that force us to revive are characters like Korg.

    His unblockable unstoppable should be ONE or the other NOT both. His S1 should only be unblockable 1st hit like ALL other champs in this game who do unblockable moves.....
    If these 2 things were changed......I wouldnt have issues with Korg.

    The way he is is cheap and unbalanced.

    Namor, havok, human torch, IWIM. Those champs won’t take thorns damage. Also Dorm can keep him power drained and no thorns I believe. Hyperion spam SP1.

    You can light intercept his special 1 can be evaded and his heavy is easy to evade?
    Like he’s a high skill fight but not bs in the sense like magik

    Love how people defend OP champs and say they arent hard to fight but can't name any counters or champs to use against them... cus you know then their alliance wouldnt win si many wars right? LOL ur post made me laugh

    Honestly that is how it’s don’t. Hold block. Bait specials. Go in. Get shield down. Fire your special. Repeat. Also ghost is good as well since she can light intercept easily.

    He was designed to force you to spend on revives and potions and to keep top alliances who have him on top........

    He was designed for you to think
    If you cant do that, don't fight him.

    Funny how essentially any skilled player would disagree with that statement. If you need to kill something by throwing revives at it, then you might want to reconsider your approach.

    Ghost is the perfect counter ... perfectly played, she won't take any damage in the fight ...

    Omega Red is another. High sig Namor too.

    But apart from the above hard counters, most champs can do it if you learn the shallow evade method.

    @Merdsuper what does being a free to play player have to do with beating Korg. A lot of champions can take him down. I think knowing how to fight him is the bigger problem for you. Watch some videos and practise dueling someone that has a korg. No nerf needed.
  • Unknown_SoldierUnknown_Soldier Posts: 101
    Well if that's the case ......Black Widow, Dr Strange, and Thor never needed to be nerfed either.......
  • Austin555555Austin555555 Posts: 2,154 ★★★★
    Do you expect to not take damage after hitting jagged rock? He’s fine as he is now.

    When I mentioned free to play I meant I don’t spend money on units to get revives I grind arena and battle chips crystal come in use aswell

    I would say he need a buff, not a nerf :p
    any 3 star hits harder than lets say a 4* r5 korg :o
    in defence he can be annoying sometimes, but just remove his rock charges and take him out
    ppl already whined so much on NC in defence in to old time so kabam had to half NC damage from where it was before, mega nerf that still with him when we have other champs dealing 20k hits mediums....so dont like nerf talk about korg

    If Korg gets nerfed, he will join the long list of good-for-nothing Champs.
    So let’s not think in that direction.
