So now that it’s been a month after release, I’m curious on what are our thoughts are on Elimine. Before saying anything, I’ll acknowledge she hasn’t had any reruns. So it may still take a while for her to get into the hands of more players. And even if a player has her, they may not fit her into a team because of scoring hits.
That said, based on what I’ve seen even when players use her, I still stand by what I said at her release. I think she forced some people to change their defenses, but I honestly don’t think she’s as impactful as some people claimed. Beyond negating some turn 1 set ups, she still has the same issues Mila had - namely only being able to affect one lane. I haven’t seen anyone use multiple Elimines (again, might be due to no reruns - but even then, there are good reasons not to run multiple). And to drive home the point further, I used a double Catria ball defense to great effect and had a 0 lift loss season in VoH.
Now am I saying she’s a bad unit? No, I have her myself and have used her in every single raid I did in astra since her release. I think the DR she provides in addition to the def/res drive she gives is quite potent. But I personally don’t think she broke astra, and certainly not because of False Start alone.
