why go 4/4/5 when 5/3/5 is the better choice for only one more AP you get the benefit of stealing purple and the diff in 4 blue to 3 blue is nothing. 3/5/5 is a whole different beast as it falls into the 3 match category where Aggressive recond 4 and 5 fall into the 4 match category. If you always play with a +1 purple boost, okay, 4/4/5 is better than 5/3/5 in speed, but unboosted 4/4/5 makes no sense compared to 5/3/5
With 4/4/5 IF you face another OBW you can afford to have purple stolen from you once because you steal two back in three purple matches thus bringing you to 10AP.
Okay, 5/5/3 is probably just as good or maybe even better. Can't try it out myself unless I get 2 purple covers in a row.
So I have a maxed 3/5/5 oBW... I also have 2 purple covers sitting in my storage and I've been wondering if it would be beneficial to go to 5 purple... I mean one more match to get the required amount does not seem like that big a deal, however whenever I encounter a 5 purple black widow it is an easy prey since I can stalk and deny it so much better...
Should I be changing? If so - where should I subtract? I love both the healing and the double dipping damage of oBW... she actually does tank all the 3 of her colour for me and whenever there are some strike tiles she starts to do serious mayhem...
