akanna Posted December 27, 2012 Report Share Posted December 27, 2012 Just curious what the hardest team comp you've ever faced was? For me it was against Micro + Brine + Lord Z + Unix + MK Micro would toss you into a brine tentacle which would drag you into a Lord Z ring trapping you where you were a sitting duck for Unix and MK Early on MK and Unix pushed stupid well together while the Brine + Micro + Lord Z trolled our team with combo long range tower pulls. In the later game Micro had SHC so you would literally have 5-10 seconds of not being able to do anything while you were stunned and tossed, then stunned and dragged by brine and then fungaled and tasered by Unix and ringed by Lord Z. And the entire time you had MK + Unix minions laying into you, and unix ulting you (after you landed of course). Most of the time you died before you could activate any abilities whatsoever, and when you didn't you were still stuck in LZs ring while unix was ulting you and both MK and Unix minions + Lord Z were laying into you (this was before the recent nerfs to micro, so he could still toss you 14 units back, far out of range for any help from your team) It was the only game I have ever played where I felt like there was no way to fight back and win no matter what we did. All the harassment and pushing early on put us on the defensive pretty quick and In the later game Unix and MK minions would push with the creep wave, and micro would warp in to pull whoever came to defend the tower. So If we silenced and focused down the micro, MK and Unix minions would take the tower while we were doing it. If we didnt focus him down and instead worried about the minions, our team got dragged off to death 1 by 1 with that b.i.t.c.h.y combo, putting us further behind. Once micro got SHC there really wasn't anything we could do to stop him from tossing us to our doom. We had tasers but they didnt really help because he wouldnt go in with the wave, he would wait just behind it for someone to come attack the minions and jump em with SHC (which is ridiculously hard to counter because someone else has to silence or stun him in that split second between when he warps in and when he throws you if they want to save you) Occasionally brine would push instead with the minions, and would try to drag you out so that Micro could toss you and unix could fungal and taser you as you landed. Once micro got SHC he really didnt need any help from brine tho, but having both of them there made tower defense next to impossible because even if you did manage to silence them both, you still only had 5 seconds to deal with the minons before it wore off and you were fair game again. I was Cain so I was one of the few people on my team able to counter very well at all bursting down the minions with explosive retro, and using nitrogen to stave off micro and brine as best I could. But once micro got SHC there was very little anyone could do even tho we packed tasers and the other usual counters. Having a raynor to long range silence woulda been super nice, or a null for some much needed CC, but even then I still think it would have been a very hard game to win the way they played it I'm sure if I thought about it long enough I could come up with a team that would be able to counter that one, but it def was the most brutal team I've ever faced. If you have some ideas on countering it, Id love to hear em. So yeah that was my story of getting roflstomped by a very well played premade, anyone else have some super b.i.t.c.h.y team combos they've faced? Would love to get some discussions going on toughest teams to face Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
