That PvP opponent you just know you should skip...

So for me, and my alliance knows this all too well, I detest fighting America Chavez teams. It doesn’t matter what level they are, if they’re champed, or who their teammates are one things for certain...I’m gonna have criticals dropping from the sky on me by the time they make their 3rd move. I hate the RNG that makes her a such an absolute beast and it seems like I am always playing from behind when in a match with her. 

Just today day I took my loaner Domino, champed Wasp, and champed TAH in a match against loaner Domino, LVL 315 RR, and a LVL 200 Chavez. sounds like no biggie right? Wrong! I won but it cost me two health packs as they were getting huge crits in move 3. SMMFH.....

Who else has someone out there that they know they should skip but like a dumbass chooses not to?

    Been there done that to no avail. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    Using half Thor, I can get ahead of America pretty easily.

    The opponent that always seems to pwn me is Jessica Jones. The trap tiles always seem to appear in the worst places and I just get shredded.

    Okoye + Medusa is my worst enemy.

    Jessica Jones. Without fail, at least a couple of her traps will spawn right where the enemy can immediately match it away.

    I love facing Chavez. If you outpace her in AP, then she literally does nothing. Just a warm body. There’s plenty of characters that allow you to do that at every level from Hood to 5* Thor

    Okoye is easy as well. Leave her for last. She drains her own teamup AP and can’t heal. When she’s all that’s left she’s easy to bring down. 

    For Rogue, bring a stun. A stun and a nuke allow you to bypass her tanking.

    For Jess... I’ve got nothing. My guess is she’s the best defensive character in the game. You can do everything right and they can still place a trap and match immediately.  No counter for that lol.

    Teen Jean 
    My poor impulse control has me M5, even in the middle of repeating the mantra "don't match the 5don't match the fivedon't ma-ooohhhh a match 5!- Noooooooooo"
    Even if I remember I get the "lucky" cascade  
    she just throws my specials back at me
    and she's my unicorn finally up to 11/2/4; with buying every cover, BH beast, etc (Angel will just give me ANOTHER purple next, and he sucks)

    JJ/america teams will always get crazy crit drops matching the traps and match 5's! If only I had a certain pyschic 4* (No not Emma)

    Things that will happen when I fight Prof X:

    Enemy Prof X and I choose not to bring Teen Jean – Prof goes invisible and then the other team gets to spam multiple Match 5’s

    Enemy Prof X and I bring Teen Jean – Prof doesn’t bother going invisible so I get no benefit for having 2 aoe attacks and the other team will limit themselves to match 4’s.

    Otherwise Chavez and Jessica Jones are up there but I hate fighting 4* Iron Fist as he always seems to get his green then black combo going for major kung-fu-ness.

    I agree Chavez can be such a pain to fight. And while a +1 all helps some of the time, it's still not a guarantee. Problem is that once she gets her crits rolling, this very often leads to match-4's or match-5's, making it even harder to catch up on AP.

    Another opponent I hate is C4rol in a PVPs where the featured character is likely to have the highest match damage because that will probably mean your strongest colors will match.

    A recent PVP battle that (unpleasantly) surprised me was a 5Hawkeye/Coulson combo (can't remember the third team member, possibly Switch?). My own Hawkeye is only 0/2/2 so I didn't really know about his passive. But once they fired some powers, it turned into a blue-spam / AP-gain fest for the AI.

    I always try to skip Rogue. I also skip Carnage & Medusa combos.

    1)  JJ (jealous I don't have her blue)
    2)  Chavez (love my Chavez, hate all other Chavez)
    3)  Rogue (fires 345,000 damage, takes off 65 health)
    4)  Strange (either, bleeds me, annoys me)

    Chavez just goes first, it's as simple as that. I like to use Okoye + Medusa against her and just match team-up tiles at the onset of the match. Yeah, I'm going to eat a couple crits, but Chavez will be gone in 2-3 turns and Okoye can heal it back later.

    Gladiator Thor. Every so often, I forget what a nightmare he is to fight. "Oh, I can take him before he starts the nightmare engine," I think. Then he gets all the green...

    Bring G4mora to any annoying character fight. that mega-cheap stun paired with a blue generator like Vulture means it's stun-lock city. There is no single character I'll fundamentally skip, just characters at a level higher than I can compete with.

    C4rol vs. C4rol fights. I always think I'll be fine, but there's inevitably a cascade that makes three matches in my strongest color out of nowhere.

    Rogue in the 35-55 point range but if the team is worth 75 pts, you're going down suga.

    In three star lands, I skip Dr Strange, Iron Fist, Scarlet Witch. 

    I will almost always skip Ghost, America Chavez, C4rol, R4G, Medusa and JJ.

    1) I agree, although I have her.
    2) I bring gambit, even weak gambit helps. If she's not boosted I normally don't worry.
    3) Yes, super infuriating
    4) JJ and half Thor have completely neutralized his threat to me now. I rush in headlong.

    I skip Medusa and Okoye combos, and I should skipe JJ and Okoye, but I've had good luck occasionally and tend to just rush at her.
