yesterday i ran into one of those asshole wraiths that just decoy and run. and after the match when i lost because he literally dragged us through every threat in EXISTENCE on the entire map 5 times over cause he did nothing but run i complained about it. to my surprise he turned on his mic and told me “but that’s how you play wraith” i quickly rebuttled him. made monster my humber 1 preference and told him “****** fucker that is NOT how you play wraith. that is NOT how you play any monster at all. you want to see wraith played the way it was meant to be ill show you”
i then got monster picked wraith 3 into warpblast and then damage bonus. i armored up quickly war blasted right into his little group of people left him alive and ran off to get to stage three before the hunters even dropped a second time. came after them again and wiped them out
after i won that round the guy complained saying “THATS NOT HOW YOU PLAY WRAITH that’s how you play goliath. your not supposed to tank with wraith” my counter point is that wraith is a hit and run character designed specifically for the art of running in quickly downing a hunter and then leaving. every thing about her is this. the decoy to confuse. the abduct to separate the war blast to annihilate and the supernova to rip and tear into a single target with its short duration
suffice it to say we attempted this again me as monster because i was picked for monster again i tried a similar scenario and i lost that round because of a motherfucking Lazarus sonnie combo that kept the lazurus safe. ANYWAYS. he then said “SEEEE YOU LOST it isn’t how your supposed to play wraith” i laughed at that stupidity
how can you say just because something WON that it makes it the correct and viable tactic. i mean i won also. does my loss negate every win i have had using this exact same strategy?
anyways kinda of a rant but i do have the question. can there really be anything considered the “right” way to play any monster?
