I kinda think some people here missed the point of the topic. Yes, this team can be countered, shard deprived, won in early game stage. I don’t think that was the point of the topic. We all know that some gear is broken on some characters. Specifically, in that above mentioned team combo, and that gear loadout, once you were pulled, you were dead. And I don’t mean you were normally dead. I played Kelvin. I chomped my health up to 5400. Don’t have screenshot of it, but I was killed in 1.2 seconds. Most dmg done by galilea, with a little help from Bea. Is that the way to play a game? Beats me.
I actually want to give few more examples of broken gear loadouts we encountered. Again, let’s not discuss about how to win against those teams, or what to take to counter them. I just want to discuss about bs playing this (sadly dead) game, when there is like 20 people only playing, and most of them left public matches exactly cause of this. Orendi: Bola+Voxis+5 ringer discount. Reyna with 5 ringer discount. At least one more rogue in team with same, usually Shane. Shadowpillars every cca 2 seconds, ult every 10. We did annihilate them in beggining so they didn’t even activate that gear. But people, why do you play like that, is it really that you can’t win even against newbies that you have to try to pull that bs? And yes, veteran players will punish you for trying to pull that on them.
Second example: one player using Starkweather’s oscilator on Phoebe. It’s a recoil legendary gear. Yes. Recoil. Special gimmick: your attacks charge your shields for 15% of the damage dealt. For those who maybe don’t connect why would Phoebe do that, after lvl 6, mutation which allows you to teleport once again once your shields are depleated. So he teleports somewhere, attacks till his shields are down, teleport, attack a bit, teleport…rinse and repeat. And combined with lvl 1 helix of increased movement speed after teleport…imagine how that looks. Again…yes, easily counterable, not the point of saying this. Why? I just want to ask people…why play like that?
