    I doubt that it will not be one certain pink butterfly using one.

    Rampage pretty much ruined everything last time, saw some skilled people in the match as well using non meta builds. It was nice that out of all that pool of rampage using wars (including Tramadex) you could see the skilled people would outplay the brainless rampage users.

    Such racism and discrimination towards our overlords, the mirage.

    Do we have to be well known wintraders and alt acc abusers like miaz to participate?

    What about engi elixir X? Perma stealth DE? There are more than 2 toxic builds that ruin competitive 1v1s.

  • Actually not bad content, thx.

  • s/f condi weaver

  • Guessing no one played a sage s/d weaver to knock him out the tournament then:)

  • Falan.1839Falan.1839 Member ✭✭✭

    He played Earth traitline, so with Diamond Skin and Stone Heart he had counters against both power and condi that he could switch between.

    So is Weaver the strongest 1 vs 1 class now?
    Or is it just a matter of difference in skill level between the winner and the rest?

    There were at least 2 Fire Weavers in the tournament who lost their duel: one lost to core necro, and the other lost to warrior.

    The guy who won the tournament was Sikieki, member of the top team that regularly wins EU monthly ATs. He could've played any current meta class and still have a very high chance of winning that tournament.

    So to answer your question: he won due to difference in skill between him and other less experienced players. The weaver is one of the better 1v1 classes right now but not the best, it's on the same level as other meta-builds like Warrior, Holo, Mirage, Symbolbrand, etc. etc. and can be easily countered, outplayed due to skill difference, or punished for mistakes.

    It is the hardest to kill simply, and the map forces an end after 2 minutes with gas mechanic. In an actual conquest map that build would just stall a lot of 1v1s. Also 1v1 is a lot about counters, I suspect a Core Warr could probably beat the build (at least until Tuesday when the anti barrier trait is nerfed), but he didn't face that. He faced a warr, but since traitline switching wasn't allowed the warr had to remain on SPB, which doesn't do great against that build.
