Please, get rid of this crap excuse for a spell.

Thank you!

Please, get rid of this very easily countered, crap excuse for a spell.

I quite like it.

As pointed out there are many ways to stop or at least minimize the effects of decay.

They include:

Having a blocker 20 hp minion in front with an AoI
Use AMF
Kill in ranged before Decay gets started
Use a mageseeker to kill the decay mage
Use GA to kill the decay mage
and there are a few others if you get imaginative.

Beating the team in 6 rounds just doesnt seem like a real counter to me..

Amf and ga are pretty useless when they get DM nuked..

AOI is nice but does nothing when SG or even an IF start hitting..

And a pl beats a Mageseeker really well..

Want to see a broken strat find me a buyer for TR lol..

What counters were you referring to horseguy?

QBRanger June 10 2011 11:14 AM EDT

First off AMF is not countered by DM, unless it is your own DM and you do not use a RoS.

But hey, I can say the same thing for the exbow of which there are even less counters.



QBRanger June 10 2011 11:17 AM EDT

I see you have AMF, so what exactly about decay are you upset about?

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] June 10 2011 11:32 AM EDT

Meh.. It's just a silly spell, for 10k exp. Nuke the targets hp by 50% and possibly even more with leadership.... O.O .. Why is it even called decay wouldn't nuclear blast or solar flare be a more fitting name?

I guess I just dislike it for the same reason I hate DM, it just seems like a strat killer to me. I'm sure it's in the game to balance something I just havent figured it out yet.. (I really hope it's not meant to balance natural large hp characters)

Not just 10k exp...the largest in the game actually :)

Some easy counters that Ranger pointed out. The 20 HP AoI minion backed by a PL battery. I do enough damage to teams like Dudemus' to kill, yet I can't win since the mechanic of the TSA continually brings the PL minion back to life (while keeping the front minion alive), and my decay ends up hitting for <10k damage.

AMF/GA make quick work of a decay minion. I can't beat Team Rocket 100% when you have the RoS.

Finally someone has the stones to get a decent Decay :D.

20m+ xp is a far shot from 10k xp.

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] June 10 2011 2:12 PM EDT

Good job xeno for putting exp in decay the majority do not though, and against certain teams their decay is just as effective as yours.. For yes just a bit under 10k exp.

I think decay is a good spell that has its place. As the game lasts longer it will slowly become more interesting.
