Dear monsters, monsters in training and trolls living under the bridge and possible douches who play wraith and spam decoys.
Played a game with Goliath earlier and was having a blast despite the slight lag I was experiencing.
Wanted to share this lil story that tells you how horribly overpowered Val is.
Skipping to the parts that actualy matter.
I was stage 2, lost only around 1 bar of health, Assault had 1 strike so far, their medic was Val bot, and I had just crushed their support and trapper dead.
Assault took a rock to the face and leap smash which depleted his shield. I proceed to melt his face and just as I’m about to finish him with epic overhead swing for the glory of Golys everwhere, their medic bot Val pops up right under my ass. Instead of finishing the assault off, my Goly is compelled to do the most sensible thing, extra slow backwards swing at the medic which gives her enough time to heal the assault up a little and the assault to get out of my range.
Oh well, knocked the medic away down a ledge with minicharge and leap smashed the assault as he had only a sliver of health left, he had a bit of jetpack fuel and dodged it. No matter, am at his face again and this time, he is going down. I’m already offering his life to the great Goly and,
then the medic comes poke me in the ass again and I have a slight dejavu as I watch in denial as my Goly goes do the extra slow backwards swing again just as I was about to finish of the assault 2nd time in row.
Had to retreat and get some armor at this point for the next fight.
This time I downed hank almost right away because of his poor positionin he took rock to face, their trapper was so far away that I couldnt smell him at all execpt the trail of piss he left in his wake as he had run away.
Their medic bot was doing bot things and jumping around doing absolutely nothing, guess she didnt know if she should follow Markov or Griffin. Poor bot, decisions are hard for them.
Well, I was alone with Markov so I decided to pound his face which his cursed lightning gun canceled. He used what lil jetpack fuel he had left trying to flee from me but quite fast it was at the same situation where I was just about to crush his face.
And guess who pops up to poke my ass again?
Here’s a picture of Val sneaking up on unsuspecting Goliath about to use her special taunt poke to force the goly to attack her. (Griffin is substituting for Val because he wants to wear her hat and Val was not available at this time) So you can better grasp the situation.
At this point, I already knew what would happen, and there it was, the slowpoke back attack, 3rd time in row, when I was just about to crush their assault to finish the deal.
What did we learn from this experience?
- Val has OP taunt where she can force you to attack her when she comes to poke you just under your tail in melee range, it also slows your attackspeed making you a sitting duck.
- Dont play with mobile broadband when your connection is not optimal as lag might be an issue.
