So since the release of Alani I’ve noticed a huge shift in meta for incursion. Duo support has always been decent but without a good damage dealer was never a big deal. However with Alani’s combination of survivabilty, damage and healing, damage is no longer a problem. The seemingly must have team comp now is Miko, Alani, OM, and 2 tanks. The particular tanks can vary but should have at least 1 good siege tank like ISIC or Montana.
Now let me explain why this comp is the new go to. Alani and OM’s great aoe wave clear allow the team to get a quick push at the start. At this point the tanks can move forward and harass the opponent team. The opponent will inevitably try to push them back but the Miko would make the tanks near unkillable. A good assasin may try to get behind the tank and kill the Miko but the combination of Miko’s self heal, and Alani’s burst heal will make him hard to kill as well. The assassin will most likely end up getting cc’d by Alani and Miko long before they can kill him. Which inevitably buys enough time for the team to kill the assassin or force the retreat. You could try to focus the Alani but her natural sustain plus self heal makes her very hard to kill as well.
I have witnessed this composition absolutely demolish and unless something changes, I fear the assassin characters will completely phase out of Incursion. Has anyone had any luck against this composition without using the same composition? I kind of hope this doesn’t become the meta, I liked having a variety of roles in a match.
