Gal’s dark fury got you down? You feel like she’s broken and you’re helpless? Here is how to end up taunting her!!
First, the real issue. Gal is not Op, at least, not nearly as much as people getting stomped by her think. Team work, however, is OP and always will be. If you are facing a supported gal on your own, you will die. This is because she is using team work and you aren’t! So go make friends and deploy some of that sweet OP friendship power yourself. Before you complain about needing friends, remember this is an objective based team game, not a TDM lobby shooter. That gal made friends and she’s a dirty OP toon using poo face. You, obviously of higher morals, can surely make at least as many people like you as she has.
Gal’s big weakness: Shield penetration and CC reduction.
At the moment with the game so new gear is poorly understood and under utilized. Many people are entering PVP with no CC reduction. Full duration stuns kill you in every PvP game ever. Take some. While getting gear is kinda sucky At the moment everyone faces the same sucky system so suck it up buttercup.
The second gear or helix trait to consider: Shield penetration. Gal is only a dps powerhouse when her HP is max. Deal even one point of health damage and her bonus dps vanishes. With her damage nerfed she is a reduced threat. Now get your friends to pressure her support. If you kill or push the support then gal is extremely vulnerable and will either die or be pushed.
The other big concern: early feeding. If you let a gal and support get a lot of early easy kills they will out level you and dominate. Don’t die stupidly early on.
A good two man combo to counter gal+support is Oscar Mike + Caldarius. Run the blade build on these forums, use it as suggested to zip in and kill/push miko while penetrating Oscar nerfs Gal.
Marqui + anyone is also great at this. If you can’t consistently kill/push miko as Marqui then you need to practice more!
I will now start to copy some suggestions other have offered to keep all needed info in one place:
@Radical : Orendi built aggressive with 60% shield pen on shadow flare can burst gal down. Use your size and agility to avoid shield toss. Use push back mele to limit time in silence field.
@ninjafoxx : Deandre using level 3 mutagen can chain launch gal into the air. Even her shield doesn’t stop the knock up. So knock her up to knock her down. This is effective against nearly all characters without a double jump or directional jump mechanic.
@MP-Omnis : Melka emphasize poison uptime to prevent gal’s bonus damage and use your mobility skills to keep her at range. With Melka’s knock back, withdraw and high mobility it’s just a matter of playing smart. Effective against all brawlers including Gal.
@MP-Omnis : Ambra equipped with movement speed shoes can sun leash and kite gal to death. Make use of sunspots and wind to keep health and damage in your favor.
@SmokusPocus : Rath can just spin to win. Use your ninja moves, approach from flank or rear, murder.
