    I haven't ventured in the latest CoW yet.

    It is most definitely horribly lame! Can barely damage it for the first 7 turns of hitting repeat for your units and then the fight starts.

    Can I be honest with you mate? I really like this boss. Tbh once you know the mechanics it’s easier than the past ones. Trying to cap 265% atm. Stupid variance. :(

    It can be cleared by a lot of players, needing 7+ turns is something new for some maybe but i wouldn't call it lame. Why it takes that many turns and need 5 elements every turn to "remove" the mitigation is a bit too much, but what CoW wasn't.

    To each his/her own. I just found it to be a bad combination of lazy mechanics with a forced 7+ turn rotation, which makes it dreadfully unappealing to do reruns for variance. I prefer bosses that punish you, and this one just sits there and waits for you to murder it. All damage can be nullified with NVA Elena's 100% all-element resist = lame. Active damage mitigation for 6 turns = lame.

    What I find even more offensive is the reduced damage cap to 2.5 billion, only to increase the DEF/SPR so much over the last boss that 2.5b can't even be reached by the whaliest team with all mods turns on. So much for that promise that this CoW would be cappable, eh?

    I dunno, I just see this boss as a step in the wrong direction. I am glad, however, that they made the HP lock a bonus modifier this time, as I think that makes the intial clears so much better for all players.

    My provoke tank is getting some proper hits ;) But i get what you mean. They did add a new mechanic that reduces healings, when indeed most can be resisted even with the -75% modifiers. That shows some potential, just not for this one.

    And in my friend list 5 players got a cap on 235% with 5 different teams, how awesome is that?

    How different are we talking here? All the peeps I'm seeing at the top of my FL show the same core units (Skye, Lara, Bulwark, Louise, Karten and/or Tiana) with the only diff being the presence or absence of Elena? Seems there is room to switch a buffer, saw liddokun NV Sakura which is cool!

    I guess my issue is the strategy doesn't change much at all. Sit n wait. Burst. Feels too much like DV.

    As long as one of the (main) criteria is damage cap CoW is a DV variation.
    I can guess as to 4 of the 5 strategies, but 1 i am not so sure :) but indeed all include louise and lara, but bullwark tiana skye and even karten are variables. (And Elena for the elemental resists)

    Probably the wait-and-burst is even more enhanced because the event-unit Tiana needs 6/7 turns to amp and build up stacks.

    My biggest issue, aside from the crap and bugs and maintanace downtime, would be the time limitedness of these events. I am "forced" to copy-paste someone elses clear. (Or not "waste" time playing around and actually have some fun clearing it with Vosslers or Slimes or such)

    Also i don't think i noticed any cheaters? Almost unbelievable. Maybe i check again

    That's true haven't seen any cheaters this round, did Gumi finally ban them all?

    I guess this one feels more like DV than the last three due to the simplified mechanics and how easily the damage is negated, there isn't really any challenge. I enjoyed Kyros and Treshen because they required a tank to survive, so it felt more like a real trial.
