Team building guide

Post2016-06-22 10:39

Foreword

In GxB, there is rarely a case in which one BG (Battle Girl) completely outclasses another once fully maxed and evolved. Rather, the team composition and synergy of skills is what determines which team will beat which.


What you'll find in this guide

Simplified counter triangle*

Notable BGs that everyone can make use of/ should avoid

3 basic team strategies

Videos of PvP with a short analysis for each

BGs sorted by damage scaling and type


*not actually a triangle


Very simplified counter system

Some examples of team focuses:

Stuns/ silences/ slows

Shields/ heals/ tankers

Ultimate nukers


Silence >> heal, ultimate nukers (especially long cast time spells)

Preventing heals reduces enemy's effective HP dramatically. Cancelling/ delaying ultimates can turn a fight around.


Stun/ slow >> non-ultimate DPS/heal

Reduces their DPS greatly, allowing you to charge ultimates.


Heals/ shields/ tanks >> non-ultimate DPS, ultimate nukers(to an extent)

Heals/ tanks help protect your own backline DPS. Shields prevent CC and interrupts, helping land ultimates.


Ultimate nukers >> ultimate nukers (whoever gets the first couple kills)


Meeting the winning condition

Team building strategies

Every team needs some way to kill the enemy backline in a timely manner, either with raw DPS or damage ultimates.

How you fit in CC, shields, heals etc. is up to you and the enemy composition, as these all simply help you achieve the winning condition of letting off your nukes and killings the enemy's key BGs. 

There are 3 main strategies:


1. Lots of AoE to hit all BGs at once, eventually killing the backline.

This strategy relies on charging up enough ultimates to brute force destroy everything at once.

Teams tend to consist of 1 pure tank and 3-4 AoE nukers. 


Example teams

Both teams

Both teams have mostly AoE damage, the result came down to who silenced and stunned first. See 0:38 where both Blowies use silence at the same time. Red team's Blowie is then taken out, meaning no more silence.


2. Some AoE and some single target to take down the frontline, then normal attack the backline.

Balanced setup that utilizes ultimates and normal DPS.

A lot of variety with this setup, can be mainly frontline physical or have 1 pure tank and backline magical.


Example teams 

Green team

Witch's mana drain delays the enemy Leona's stun long enough that their Leona stuns first, then Lily+Witch and Annie's single target ultimate finish off Leona before she can use her stun. A very fine balance as Lily restores mana, and Witch drains mana.


Red team

Green team goes offensive with only Wildtress, and while the shield is up, they seem to have the upper hand. However, Red team's Chevalir blows through Wildtress, then normal attacks kill Saint before her ulti is up. Amazon and Gambler's ultis deal a lot of damage, but it's not enough and Red's frontline kills them through normal attacks.


3. Directly attack the backline with assassins/ Androi's disable.

Very specialized setup that requires BGs like Androi, Javelin, Karatine to ignore the frontline. Most effective vs single tank teams.


Example teams

Red team

Red team's Javelin takes out Gambler early on while the rest of her team takes out Leona, leaving the rest of the backline open. Too bad Saint is OP.


Red team

Red team's Androi removes Leona long enough for Blowie to be almost killed, with a bit more luck Blowie would have died then and there. It almost looks over when Red team's Javelin redirects Lily's ultimate, but Saint is too OP.


Green team

Classic combo to take down single frontliner teams; Tennese+Androi.


Notable BGs

"Top tier" BGs tend to have a unique skill/ versatile skillset that benefits many team compositions, meaning they are seen more in high ranked play. 


Amazon - 80 scrolls (Chapter 4/5/16)

Ultimate AoE magic knockback. Double magic stun, triple physical shot, increased dodge.

Provides very high mixed magical and physical damage, coupled with stuns. Good for extra damage for any team.


Saint - 30 scrolls (Top floor shop)

Ultimate AoE magic and kamikaze. AoE magic, self attack buff per fallen BG, AoE attack reduction.

Releases her ultimate on death. Tonnes of damage.


Tennese - 10 scrolls (Champion shop)

Ultimate AoE magic. Single physical stun, team attack/ attack speed/ move speed/ magic buff, increased agility.

Starts off every fight with a single stun on the enemy frontliner, then buffs team for a short duration. Refreshes each round for campaigns, speeding up the process dramatically.

Provides huge momentum for PvP teams, potentially wiping out a weak frontline instantly. Can also help set up a stun/ silence chain faster.


Wildtress - 30 scrolls (Champion shop)

Ultimate AoE frontline physical. AoE frontline physical stun, initial shield, increased strength.

Starts off every fight with a magic+physical shield. Refreshes each round for campaigns. Breaks momentum from the enemy in PvP by preventing stuns/ silences for the duration. Extremely useful in Champion where the opponent may begin the battle with fully charged ultimates.


Bottom tier BGs

There are a couple BGs that, due to a poor mechanic in a skill or otherwise, are outclassed by other BGs.


Quinie - 10 scrolls (Chapter 11/12/15)

Fairly decent nuking power and an attack speed buff, however her 4th skill boosts strength despite being an INT BG.


Fortune - 30 scrolls (Chapter 4/10/15)

0 damage stun for an ultimate, not very tanky for a frontliner as increased dodge isn't as effective for straight up tanking.
