The RBF - strategy for countering? (in General)

QBJohnnywas October 12 2009 6:29 AM EDT

I can take on the majority of tank teams and I don't really worry about mage teams thanks to the Mageseeker. I also don't really worry about the exbow or the Jiggys - they are tank foil after all. But I can't get my head around what to do with the RBF, and it's little friend PL.

Apart from doing enough damage to take out the team before melee, what would you do to take on the RBF? Is there anything I can do to make my team more effective against it, or do I just accept that my team is weak against it? AC? More minions? Wall minions? And what about the little sneak that is PL? Are they just paper to my rock?

Have you tried changing your minion order?

AC is the best way to stop RoBF's, that and of course your own RoBF

Minion order unfortunately doesn't make much difference - due to me having only 2 minions and one of them being very low in HP. I'm contemplating a new minion doing Wall things but I'm not sure if that's going to make much difference.

A Front (or behind any Invisible minions) heavy AC Wall really hurts RoBF teams.

Especially when backed by PL/TSA, but then what isn't! ;)

Almost every RoBF team will have AMF. Walls work wonders, as everybody else has said.

heavy tank! :D

I had thought about heavy tank actually, except the upper tanks are playing dex games right now, and I'm a little bit behind on the PTH front in comparison. I can't really afford to lose dex, and the TSA's regen is just too nice....

God, it's sad/scary/mad when +170 is small....

I don't know, but I'm going to have to find out!
