Due to forum issues I can’t seem to make edit to the old poll, so I’m starting a new one here with all the missing metas mentioned.
Again, to clarify, I want to run a poll on what would be considered the most popular meta build if ALL of them suddenly returned.
A brief intro of all the Meta Evolutions:
All Quiet On the Pan’s Vale Front (The Silent One)
The Silent One used to not silence himself, so it was very possible to completely lock down the opposing team. Credit to @Emos for sharing this one.
One-Shot Team Wipe (Skull spammers)
Back in the days when Skull dmg could spill over to the rest of the team, skull spammers like Sheggra or Keeper of Souls were Masters of Terror on the board. It was quite possible to wipe out a whole team with a single skull spam.
To Infinity and Beyond (Webspinner):
Webspinner’s mana generation used to base on its Magic, which could scale to a ridiculous amount and allow it to endlessly feed itself in infinite loop.
The Little Scout that Could (Centaur Scout)
When the Trait system was first introduced, this little guy was a certifiable menace. He dodges at 50% and ignore Armor on Skull dmg 100%. Combined with a quick skull-gen… well, you get the picture.
Nom Nom Nom (Great Maw)
The initial version of Great Maw had something like 10% or more passive devour chance on Skull damage on top of its 1 shot spell. And with AI being the love child of RNGesus, the 10% actually felt more like 50% to the player base.
A Bone (Dragon) to Pick
When Kingdom bonus was introduced and everyone suddenly find themselves with a ton of extra armor, Bone Dragon rolled in as the King of the Field… at least until the amount of armor he could strip was nerfed.
Kerebros + Giant Spider + Forest Guardian. Enough said.
EK+Valk+Justice +Mab. This build has been grieving the Console community for a good part of the year now…
The Demonic Duo (Psion & Famine)
The Dark Knight Famine and his little sidekick. This is the epitome of mana-drain meta. Granted, there may also be EK and the like, but Psion & Famine together are more prone to make people want to punch through wall…
Dance with the Devil (in the Pale Wisp Light)
Wisp! Wisp! OMG Wisps!
Queen Mab and 3 Goblins Walk into a bar
The 3 goblins being the Nobend Brothers, Fizzbang, and Queen Gobblepot… Well, I guess the brothers would be 3 goblins themselves, so really it would be 5 goblins…
The (T)rolling Krakens
Forest Troll + Krakens (sometimes Mab makes an entrance). This is the latest craze, and quite sickeningly effective too.
So let’s take a vote! Who Wins? Who is the Champion of the Gems of Meta-War? You decide!
