They really need to nerf count dooku. Every time im in galactic wars I last to the final round and there comes the mfer count dooku, With 3 healers in my team I still can't beat him, he just counter everything and gets like 100 bonus attacks. Its just too much
1. Use stunners. Dooku himself, Asajj, Daka are good bets. If he's stunned he can't retaliate and he's a sitting duck.
2. Use characters with strong specials. Lumi's special can crit for 5k even on a team with no crit boost and can also ability block. He's squishy. One Lumi hit can nuke half his bar.
3. Wear him down by attacking him with tanky characters that can absorb his counters without caring much. For example, in GW I will attack him with chars like Barriss, Boba, Chewie, Kylo. He'll retaliate but he gets worn down.
4. Use Sid to block him from being healed. If he's near dead and there's a Barriss, stun or ability block her until you can take him out.
5. Avoid retreating with an opponent Dooku in play. He has the fastest speed.
6. If you have 3 healers I bet they are all Jedi, and Dooku is strong against Jedi.
I face Dooku all the time in GW. He's annoying but not a major threat as long as you play well.
You can retreat with a live Dooku (#5), especially if you plan to load with mostly fresh units that can take a couple attacks in (and you got a healer to cover for it).
Poe is currently my best Dooku counter, with his Offense Down debuff, Dooku's multiple attacks become noting to fear. I think Tarkin would help in that regards too if you are lucky enough to have him.
You;re right though, seeing the guy on 10+ nodes out of 12 every day in GW tends to wear me down and make GW a much longer "daily" that it ought to be.
Given more time, I think the use of him will naturally decrease.
lol how many forum accounts is that?
My other accounts aren't banned, it's just restricted.
So when you come to these forums, is it your intent to fight with people?
Not at all, my intent is to discuss strats with people and give my opinion on several things. I've had healthy debates and discussions with guys like @cosmicturtle333 @KTroy24 etc, but when I'm constantly being attacked by pay to win players telling me I need "better strats etc", when they're just paying to win and not thinking for a second can you blame me for retaliating?
For the Star Wars geeks like me he was a master of form II "makashi" which is heavily reliant on good footwork and dueling which is how he could counter most duelist and was hard to beat. It's awesome how they gave him those counters moves and its in respect of the late Christopher lee.
If you can't figure out how to beat dooku then I don't think these strategy games are made for you. If you want a lesson on how to beat count dooku or slow him down then holla at my good friend @thephantomewok he will help you
Oh and as Qeltar mentioned above, hit him with the tanks players that can handle his counters.
Avoid him healing by not damaging him below to the "yellow" bar as that will trigger the AI heal. Instead damage him down to just half way (still green and using normal attacks, save specials) then watch the healer turn meter and wait for them to attack. After healers attack (mostly Bariss) unleash all your specials and destroy him. You'd hate to start the match unleashing all your specials on him just for Bariss/lumi to heal him back up
Tbh besides Dooku's double stun he's not really a big threat. During GW i take him out first for the speed advantage, but in arena I can pretty much ignore him. Of course if he lands his double stuns on my 2 jedis, and that player runs a dps heavy team I'm screwed though so he's still great in that sense but not op.
Do you like my new sig btw? And congrats on getting rank 4
You really need to step up your game. Try kill dooku last, he is weak once his allies was gone. Always take out healer first.
Yet look at your signature... That sums up your underlying message perfectly... I don't claim to read every single post in the forum, but I don't recall seeing any post from a F2P/P2P player telling you that you need a better strategy...
Definately, every character has their weakness just gotta play smart and sometimes lucky
I'm personally happy to see you phanromewok, I found your comments fun and amusing...
He's OP for new and midlevel players. So I do agree with you to a certain extent. He should be nerfed at lower levels.
Thanks for the support guys. F2p/crystal buyers/Dooku pack buyers need to stick together. These hardcore pay to win guys think that our input means nothing because we don't spend 100s of dollars to win.
Oh trust me, go back to the barriss nerf threads. I didnt start retaliating until I was told by several pay to win players to get better strats. I tried being reasonable, but obviously you can't be reasonable with pay to win players.
Overall, I don't have any real issues with Dooku either. Annoying? Definitely. OP? No. It's more the fault of the AI cheating.
