Crash of the Titans Cycle 4: Quake



  • TatercatTatercat Age Unconfirmed Posts: 930 Critical Contributor
    1st try with my champed Quake at 5/5/3 (forgot to respect her to 5/3/5) with extra AP boosts. Got lucky with blue 5 tile match right off the bat. Destroyed yellow tiles to prevent her invisibility and defense tiles, and put her down after firing off green twice. She only got off blue once.

    If you don’t have 5 in Quake’s green, this is going to be rough. Even with my champ, if I hadn’t gotten that blue up front, it could have gone very differently. Since your chasing the same colors, it would be a 50/50 chance to get in one of those “one match behind” situations, where every match you make just sets up a power match for her.

    Chase green first absolutely, then blue, and just use the blue to get rid of yellow or whatever mega match she might be about to make in green. (or just for the board shake if you’re stuck.)

    Got a HB cover from the LT, another champ level for him.

    Took 3 tries with lvl 115 4/1/5 had to buy an All match damage boost and use Iso to add about 35 lvls.

    Without the boost just did not do enough damage.

    Did it with a lvl. 128 3/2/2 Quake after 6 attempts, last two of those I used +60% all/+30% green&black/+30% blue&purple. This was a deceptively hard matchup, a few times I was cruising along nicely and the AI would cascade into a few green or blue maches which pretty much ends the game.

    On my final attempt I lucked into a double match-5 on game start which did almost 7k damage, so that was the deciding factor because I ended with about 1.5k health left myself. As others have said: deny green and blue to opponent, use blue to try and remove enemy special tiles, and hope for the best because AP denial only works temporarily with IW's cheap abilities. Tokens go onto the pile (up to 10 now) until I feel there are more useful 5*s in Latest pool.

    Similar here... 3/2/5 127. Had thrown +125% Crit boosts in and got lucky with a double cascade.

    That one was surprisingly difficult even with a champed Quake.

    Shows how good the Baglady rework was, really.

    Yeah I got her also with my champed Quake, but I was not 100% sure I was going to get her until the very end. She is much better than before definitely

    It was a difficult fight, Quake yellow is completely useless, and green is AoE so against one user is not that strong (even at max). The key for me was getting all blue I could get, so I could destroy IW invis tile, blue strikes, etc.

    At least Devs capped Sue green to just 2k damage, if it was not for this detail the fight could have been really hard

    Champed Quake got it done first time (No ISO, so hoarding the LT)

    Champed Quake and SL last season for these events - the build you "should" run is not the best build for a one-on-one.

    First try I was 140 with my 2/2/4, got pretty close despite getting hit twice with green. Second time, I leveled to 168 and won. Both attempts used +50% green/black, +50% blue/purple, +100% all.

    In my winning attempt, she did get her green off once, but not much else; any time she fired one of her other powers, I was able to get rid of her special tiles with enough stockpiled blue (which I sometimes fired twice in a row when the first attempt didn't clean out the board). My enhanced match damage took care of the rest.

    Got a yellow Luke Cage.

    Just pointing out anyone with a champed Quake not running at 5/3/5 for this crash is doing it wrong.

    Won first try with my lv188 3/3/3. I already had ISO into her since she's so good for PVE, even partially covered.
    Based on other posts, I did +2 blue AP and boosted both green/black and all match damage to the maximum.
    I focused on denying green and eventually wore her down, despite my relatively weak Earthquake.

    At 3 covers, it's easy for Quake's blue to miss Sue's special tiles, but it eventually worked out OK for me. The board shuffles are helpful to give more chances at match-5s.
    If Sue had been able to fire her green, it would have been very close.

    Reward was icon_nickfury.pngyellowflag.png , he's only 2/2/0 for me.

    LVL 192, 4/1/4 - got it on the 3rd or 4th try...although IW doesn't hit that hard without her strike tiles, neither does Quake...finally lucked into a match-5 green cascade and was able to use Earthquake more than once, which was the key.

    Got a icon_kingpin.pngblackflag.png with the token, he's now 2/5/5.

    First try with my 2/1/5 Quake, IW cascades into 12 Blue the first turn. Things don't improve, and she ends it with her green nuke. I do very little damage to her.

    Second try, she gets off invisibility THREE times, but I do really well right up until she gets three straight turns with match 4s to get her blue and green powers. She's down to about 5000 health, so I'm improving.

    Third time, I said Forget AP and go for MAX DAMAGE! +100% Match Damage, +50% Blue and +50% Green. It worked, as I was able to deny her green for the match. I used Earthquake once as a board shake to make sure she wouldn't get one of the two Match 4 on the board.

    Token was another X-Force, bringing him up to 284. Now my highest LVL 4 star, topping my own Invisible Woman.

    10 fails in, I suspect this will be my first defeat of cycle 4. Which is frustrating, considering my Quake has 12 covers.

    At 133 and 3/4/5, it's the lack of green covers that's killing me. At this level, my green only hits for 1100; with IW at 13k health, that's not going to get it done. It's going to take a lot of boosted match damage and even more luck, because of course IW keeps falling into green, blue and yellow cascades every match. Her occasionally going invisible slows me down and firing blue speeds her up, and it doesn't matter how hard I deny green, she always eventually stumbles into it and it's game over.

    Wew. Levelled my 3/5/3 Quake up to lv168, got it on my first try without any boosts since I intended in to be a test run

    Denied green and blue all the way. Sue got off her yellow thrice; all three times I got rid of both the invisibility and protect tiles with Quake's blue. Also managed to get several match-5s. Sue only got off her blue once (used my own blue to get rid of the strike tiles) and her green never

    LT stockpiled

    After a few more tries and tweaking my strategy a little (see two posts up), I finally got it. To help deny green as hard as possible, I boosted my blue AP instead of green (along with +all dmg +blue dmg), and used blue to drain green and yellow off the board.

    It helped that I got a blue-heavy board, and was able to fire blue off a few times to keep draining and the match damage going.

    It didn't help that IW fired off invisibility with 200 health left. If she'd stumbled into some green and killed me, I may have force crushed my phone. But my perfect cycle 4 record remains intact. icon_e_smile.gif

    Reward: yellowflag.pngtoken_legendary.pngdrstrange_icon.png now 1/0/2.

    Got this 4th try with 5/2/3 lvl 197 Quake. First 3 tries were terrible, 4th wasn't close as the board kept leaving me one green, yellow or blue match and none for IW. Won with 5k health left.

    Got a redflag.pngicon_starlord.png for my troubles bringing him to 5/4/2

    Devs have made a boo boo here this is a total mismatch

    I'll have another couple of goes but my quake is only level 168 and only have 2 covers for the covers that do damage so I don't hold out much hope
  • TheRealJRadTheRealJRad Posts: 309 Mover and Shaker
    Went ahead and maxed my 3/3/2 (168). Managed it the first try with 60% all/50% bg/50%bp.

    I did get some help from the board, 4 or 5 match 5s in total, but denying green above all did the trick, Daisy had about 3900 health left.

    Don't despair! I beat this with a 2/2/4 Quake!

    This was my first ever Crash with a champion, and beat it on the test run almost completely intact. 5/3/5 is a must (as she should be run in any match without AoE users); deny green, then blue, and just use blue to kill whatever she's trying to do.
  • Dartmaster01Dartmaster01 Posts: 634 Critical Contributor
    Beat it 4th try with my level 120 4/3/1 Quake. Boosted 100% all color, 50% G/B, 50% B/P. Started off with a match 5 green and a match 5 purple, so a lucky board for sure. Only got earthquake off once, the rest was match damage.

    A tale of Wolveroach.

    10 attempts with my level 188 4/2/3, crashed and burned every time. I'd get a little cascade, she'd get a better one. I make the only move available, the board resets, oh have a match-4 for the green you need to kill me. Got you down to 553 points? Now you suddenly have enough yellow to go invisible. Ha, 11th time lucky, you go invisible, I have just enough green, die, evil harpy of doom.

    And from the token? Elektra purple, my level 115 5/5/2 spits on you.
