I’ve nonetheless been sinking lots of time into Omega Strikers and having a blast with it. Since my final information, I’ve picked up on just a few issues that I’d name extra superior ideas for as soon as you have already got a fairly good deal with on the sport.
If you happen to really feel like you’re a competent participant in phrases striker information and figuring out how all of the mechanics work, see under for some extra nuanced ideas that may show you how to lock up victories.
Enemy counter methods
Earlier than you even start a match of Omega Strikers, you will get a leg up in your opponents by means of some good choosing and banning. Relying on the match stage, the accessible starter awakenings, banned strikers, and characters your teammates have soft-locked, you’ve lots of data to provide you with a workforce composition that works nicely.
There could also be one other information sooner or later that walks by means of workforce choosing extra comprehensively, however as some good normal recommendation attempt to verify your workforce’s forwards have a mixture of control-based strikers and brawlers so that you stability out energy with the flexibility to push the core downfield simply. For bans, if there’s any doubt, simply vote alongside along with your teammates. In any other case, I like to recommend trying to ban strikers which are notably robust on sure maps (i.e. Rasmus on Ai.Mi’s App) or have good synergies with the starter awakenings (i.e. X if Fast Strike is offered).
As soon as the match begins, you may have to regulate your ways based mostly on what your opponents are doing. If you happen to can establish a “weak facet,” it is all the time clever to assault there, whether or not it is as a result of a fragile character that is straightforward to select on or some talent points. Between units, you and your workforce must also be occupied with what awakenings to select not simply to learn your personal striker talents, however whether or not taking different awakenings forward of different gamers to disclaim them some energy is likely to be extra prudent. All of those little edges you’ll be able to set up can push your opponents onto their heels and assist make victories a bit of simpler to safe.
Look ahead to core flip!
This sounds easy, however it’s fairly important to all the time be watching everybody’s vitality meter in Omega Strikers to maintain observe of who has–or is shut to–gaining the core flip abilitiy. Clearly, this is a vital factor to trace in your personal striker so when you’ll be able to hit an influence shot or combo a participant into the wall, however figuring out who else can do these issues helps you expect and put together for performs earlier than they occur.
For instance, the enemy workforce could have a striker begin hovering nearer to your aim and harassing your goalie as a result of they’ve strike accessible. A go near aim at this level is probably going as a result of short-range core strikes are just about unblockable. However, figuring out this allows you to get in place to intercept passes or maybe even assist go to your goalie and bully that ahead till they again off. Equally in your personal workforce, you could wish to try to get the core to anybody who has meter (particularly within the remaining stretches of a set) to jam a aim in.
Talking of the vitality meter, managing it is a vital side of Omega Strikers and one which I’m nonetheless fairly far off from mastering. The vitality meter is a brilliant vital as a result of it permits the aforementioned core flip means, however it additionally empowers strikers to have the ability to dodge assaults at will to realize a bonus. Dodging could seem much less helpful than a core strike, but when it saves you from being knocked out so you’ll be able to proceed serving to your workforce it’s completely value it.
A few different issues to notice about meter: it resets each set, so there isn’t any use in making an attempt to “save” it towards the tip of a spherical. Use it or lose it! There’s additionally some worth in utilizing talents that an opponent could dodge simply simply to maintain their meter from filling. This is not precisely optimum, however it might probably nonetheless be situationally helpful if a participant is harmful with core flips or tends to depend upon them.
Carry the appropriate gear
As you strategy center tiers and better ranges of competitors in Omega Strikers, selecting the best gear in the appropriate conditions turns into fairly vital. Every striker scales in another way based mostly on completely different gear loadouts and should you or different members of your workforce cannot sustain with the ability curve, it may be troublesome to make significant contributions to your workforce within the late recreation.
This all begins on the drafting section, the place you would possibly wish to choose a striker who works nicely with one of many beginning awakenings. This will even be extra advantageous than “maining” one particular character, relying on what the gear combo is.
A extra complete gear information may additionally come later, however usually talking you wish to put gear that lets your brawler get greater and deal extra injury, equip something that lets management characters play to their means kind’s strengths (i.e. creation dimension, buff length, and many others.), and in case you are goalie it by no means hurts to try to get extra expenses of your talents or scale back cooldowns.
Along with empowering your personal striker talents, it may also be value trying into choosing up defensive awakenings if the enemy workforce is constructing to give attention to knock outs. Stagger Swagger and Unstoppable specifically are implausible instruments to make it so much more durable in your opponents to execute any sort of “assault first” plan in your workforce. As a reminder, you’ll be able to all the time examine what awakenings and equipment your opponents have in-game through the loadout menu.
