Agile Trait! Broken for PvP


#1

So I am sure most of you see this. In a PvP match against goblins. Line up your skulls & blam! Nothing! Agile trait 20% chance. This trait, time over time, proves to be utterly frustrating & broken. The description should read "20% chance to block skull damage %100 of the time. Makes no sense. I just have given up on any PvP match ups or PvP defense that include Goblins. Anyone else feel the same? Have any suggestions? Or continue bypassing.


#2

Random is random. I face an agile team often and While it does seem to trigger a little more than 20% for the AI, I still punch through quite often too. You can always run a fully traited Gob-chomper (currently in the store this week for 400 glory). I love mine against goblins and monsters. Chomp indeed.


#3

Whats your team build with Gob Chomper? I have a few of them from chest, but I wasn’t very excited to put a team together just for dealing with Goblins.


#4

Since mine are fully traited, I went with 3 and Alchemist. They’re good enough to usually take down at least 2 by damage or devour. Alchemist provides the quick reload. Nothing fancy.


#5

Goblins are everywhere and I use a team with a fully-Traited Shadow-Hunter about 50%, so I’m extremely familiar with Agile.

I would say both the player and AI have around 20% success with Agile.

As for @JTango’s issue with Hobgoblin’s Agile. Use Troops that deal Spell damage, Agile can’t dodge that. I typically fight Goblins with my own Goblins, best counter IMHO


#6

Thanks for the feedback. I didn’t want it to come to that. I don’t enjoy playing Goblins all that much. I will work on something.


#7

Other option is troops that deal frozen. That stops the extra turns.

Of course the best frozen troops aren’t out yet, but something to consider since there are a few that do have it already


#8

My gob counter is quite easy

Knight coronet (stoneskin)
gob chomper
Gob chomper
Goblin crusher

But i will try Shiratory’s of three chomp and alchemist


#9

It is finally here the broken agile trait problems woot.


#10

I run a true damage team now because of all the stoneskin teams:-

Gorgotha
Valkyrie
Crimson Bat
Tyri


#11

Vs Goblins:

  1. Get that Gob Chomper triple traited
  2. Get that Gob Chomper in the top slot
  3. Enjoy the Victory Screen

#12

My current fight had a
Hobgoblin
Goblin
Boar Rider
Goblin King

My first move… Chomp. Delicious. Time to get a side of bacon with those chops.


#13

Of course chomper is triple traited and it will be better on first slot. Its just that the devour sometimes not triggers before 3 or 4 spells ( yep rng unlucky ). So i use a tank troop to get breathing room. Probably sub-optimal but more rng compliant
