On PC Kraken is 8/10 choice from Silver Master onwards, with occasional Goliath thrown in the mix. Yesterday, we pld versus Silver Master, lost pretty clearly couple of Kraken ones. Then third time monster player chose Goliath, it tipped the balance and we ended the match at first stage. He had Goliath Elited and was pretty okish player.
One example should be treated as such, but I have just started playing Kraken. I can already say after 15 matches its by far the best monster. No CC really works, yes Maggie´s traps are annoying but no really. Jack has no impact, etc. By far the biggest difference is the S2/S3, once I get LS 3 points its ridiculous. So powerful, I just wait another ability to hit hunter and then finish it with LS. If for some reason no incap, continue with AS 3 points: easiest incap Ive experienced in my limited Monster experience.
