Let me just open up by saying that I hate incursion. Most braindead gamemode in existence dominated by tryhard premades, cc-chaining and camping characters. Here are some of the characters and strats that I find most obnoxious, with some ideas on how you can make the gamemode less cheesy and annoying for yourself (though you will still lose, because matchmaking):
Obnoxious Incursion Strat Number 1:
Ernest being a talentless, motionless, camping little ■■■■■ spamming eggs behind walls and at the top of staircases, buffing his teammates’ dps to obviously OP levels and rendering the game nearly impossible to win.
Oh my God I have played nothing but OM lately in incursion. His dps is trash but he can take out Ernest eggs with one napalm grenade (!) which he can activate from range and use invis to get there safely behind their team’s wall of death. Unlike all other stealth characters, who are melee, OM is farrrr less likely to get roflstomped by Ernest’s team or the egg’s defense mode which can have slow and AOE damage pulses.
With cooldown gear I estimate that on average, an enemy Ernest can have their egg up for around 3-4 seconds before it gets hit by my napalm grenade (or gun, if a bad angle). As soon as I see that red AOE I am invis and ready for deployment. Boom there goes your team’s 30+% dps buff. It gets more beautiful with airstrike, though that is just icing on the cake. Exactly the same points here apply to Kleese/Ambra, though they don’t annoy me anywhere near as much as Ernest.
Obnoxious Incursion Strat Number 2:
Miko being a high-skill-hold-L2-buttbuddy with anyone, but of course it’s a Galilea.
Because perma wound at lvl 5. Triple-flak Whiskey is also OK, but less noticeable. It also seems that Beatrix will be BAE, s00n.
Obnoxious Incursion Strat Number 3:
A very creative Bob the Builder + voxis core Orendi player spamming shock turrets to rapidly reach the insta-win button.
Any stealth character (Oscar Mike gets a double-wammy!)
Destroy shock turret whenever. Watch the cooldown on it and stealth to it and spam the build button the moment it comes off cooldown. It will be destroyed immediately, but that doesn’t matter. It now returns to cooldown without your favourite enemy getting xp. Rinse and repeat. This way is better than the don’t-destroy-shock-turret-until-a-push method, because the enemy team won’t constantly have a shock turret up shredding your minions.
Obnoxious Incursion Strat Number 4:
Theoretically Reyna’s cleanser could be good but I have never experienced it first hand and it’s probably too late in the game to matter. The overshield can help your teammate survive the onslaught, though. Alani likewise with burst heal +30% DR buff.
Otherwise the surrender button is probably the best counter.
Obnoxious (all gamemodes) Strat Number 5:
Hawkeye build Benedict
Reyna (Reyna gets a double-wammy!)
Overshield to tank and/or cleanse hawkeye cc. Bubble ult to negate all rocket damage. Priority homings or slows. Beauuuuutifulll.
What other things annoy people in incursion? What are the possible counters?
