Anyone who thinks a good Kraken is some form of invincible is highly hunter biased.
As a Kraken main I’ve gone up against some great hunters, and those are always fun games but stressful. Lots of things to consider, especially with the new domes having 45 second recharge when perked properly and 1 second deployment.
My two losses came from Vivid Seraph and Chaos Vibe’s Xbox team. One of which was pretty close, but the second I got destroyed Stage 1. One single mistake or unfavorable trade can cost you. If you’re not landing your combos, you’re pretty much dead unless you’re mitigating extremely well while everything is going on. The new meta can be really harsh on the monster in the early game. If you make too many mistakes early, you set yourself up for defeat.
Lightning Strike is genuinely bad against a good team, it can be pretty easy to dodge with how slow it moves and Aftershock isn’t going to break a good team unless you’re catching multiple hunters out of position. Honestly, the best way to do it is try to catch Hunters out of position on a bad split and punish.
Good fun though, I always get excited seeing good Hunters in the lobby. Too bad all the ranked crashes descended my rank so much so I probably won’t see Gold hunters ever again in matchmaking. Kraken is definitely a fun monster to scrim with though, Golly is just way too stressful in his current state right now.
