So I prefer to play hunter in quick play but every now and again it’s my turn to play monster. Okay, I choose Meteor Goliath. I get in the game I find: Sunny, Jack, an active healer like Val, and some assault. Fine. In the past as monster i have had so many assaults dive in between my rock throws and my true target i have decided to abandon this ability all together. My build: two charge, one leap, one flame. I get domed stage one which is common enough, no complaints there. My problem comes in when trying to kill anybody! If I try to kill medic Sunny is just too strong with shields and jet packs so medics out of the question for me, trapper is even stronger because he gets full support from sunny and medic. So I decide to target sunny through process of elimination.
My strategy: immediately use half my flame breath to destroy the shield drone and the other half on sunny herself. Next I close the distance quick with a traversal, I’m in her face now. Charge point blank, hits. Sunny gets space while medic heals her, leap smash is blocked by jack. New shield drone is in play, again half my flame breath on drone half on sunny. This pattern continues with a negative feed back loop, Sunnys health drops at a snails pace. If I miss just one of my charge abilities, my progress is reset.
My leap smash, the further a way I am from sunny the more easily it is to dodge and more likely it is to get blocked my jack. Sometimes I land them just not reliably, I don’t think this ability was meant to be used point blank nor is it very effective this way. I want help here.
I have watched the YouTube channel Evolve Some Pie where the player who mains Goliath consistently struggles to fight sunny and hates doing so. If I were to find a strategy to counter her I’d expect to find it there but no. He uses a brute force method which requires a consistent landing of his abilities, mind you he’s fighting a coordinated team while I’m in quick play!
Time to evolve, I’ve been domed once or twice depending on their persistence and no strikes from here. I believe this is where I can change the tide of battle, that I can do something! But still I refuse rock throw because of my history with assaults. I don’t know what to do from here. What points do I invest in? Sunny is a bottle of frustration to deal with on her own regardless of hunter composition! If I fight in a wide open area sunny can put her shield drone anywhere without worrying weather or not if its in a good position, if I fight in an area with lots of cliffs I need to play that up down game hunters do and i don’t have rock throw. i don’t know what to do with her! help!
