Hello every, this is yukie. In todays video, cn apex player damian and i will have a chat about cn server apex season one playoff. And maybe it will give some reference for current apex playoff battle on global server. okay, let’s get started Damian: From our case, this is the meta box for S1, even after playoff started. There are a few points we CN players thought about most. In other words, heros that are changeable in this box. First, remove Bernhardt. What I mean is if you want to hide something in your sleeve, who else you can use. Let me think.. So heros that good to put in your sleeve, first, Leon. Not saying to hide him, say, if you want to hide a few heros, you don’t want to change too much of your playstyle. And want to have some threat to your opponent, Leon is a good choice. And then, Olivier is a good choice. Then in the later season, like top 8 or top 4, if you want to use someone special, (note: global is one week ahead of cn update, so we had clarett earlier in apex). For example, take off Olivier and Leon, first use Clarett (as secret weapon) This character in later season 1 was just too strong. You can tell your friends, if they pulled her, in later S1, if they can get to later in season, she is worth to hide in your sleeve. And then.. Wiler. Wiler is a good candidate to hide and using in later battle. Of course, first you need to use him plenty enough to be good at his skill – Tactical retreat. Because if you can use this skill well, it can affect the trending of the whole battle. When I watched Prince’s(CN S1 and S2 champion) S1 video, he has Wiler. Even now in early S3, he put him back in his box as often used top 15 hero. iler is a very showy hero to use, or say, he can do some very good play i would say. So yea he is good to put in your sleeves. And then.. Yea, Renne. We call her Ling. Renne, also, in S1, if you had her built, she is very strong. Mostly because her aoe can reach a long distance. She can deal someone like.. Jugler or Bozel. If you let opponent has a team with shorter/smaller range coverage, renne is a good hero to consider Of course, this depends on who you match with to adjust accordingly. And..where is my sakura? Okay i see, it’s here. New skin hard to see. She is also someone that you can use from the start till later season. Usually she is not high ban priority unless your opponent’s heros who have dispel all got banned. But for me, I don’t like (to use) this hero because, in your.. .let me find a random friend for ultimate battle. Let’s not see this S2 new map, just look at those S1 maps. Say, this map, floating courtyard, all the straight line type aoes are weak in this map. This is the reason I don’t like sakura personally. Also including Joshua, I personally don’t like to pick them in this map. Because this map, any of your line type AOE, like one line aoe, or three line aoe, are not easy to use fully. So that’s why I don’t like those characters myself. But, on the other hand, in especially Windy Outpost map, those characters will become extremely strong. Yukie: also Joshua right? I mean, Joshua is very strong in this map. Damian: Yes, also Joshua. First the map is narrow, very good for heros like Joshua with line type aoe. Also, it has a lot of ups and downs, very good with Ninjutsu.yea.. So, I think, oh, one more hero, Shelfaniel. Shelfaniel has one thing, I’m not sure if you guys has this..(her personal equipment Caconsis’s Crown). Yukie: Yea (*Already released*) Damian: Yea. Because of this, some people like to include her, mostly because she has this Silence and Demolish. This hero, there is a player on TW server uses her a lot, his ign is “LittleAce”(sound). Yukie: I know.. .He played final in TW, and lost to Wushao. Damian: and lot to Wushao. Wushao is someone I know (living) in China. So LittleAce’s loss was not too bad. Wushao is from Hongkong. have friends in his guild in TW. (Yukie: I was on the same server when I played TW too). Damian: So, after her personal equip came out, if you use miracle staff along with vidal rose. And with carrying Silence and Demolish, Shelfaniel could be very strong to your top 15. And your troops could be those two (shrine maiden and sky archer). Yea, so I think this is up to you. So if I’m playing, I would build my box like this.. where is olivier? Yukie: in box already. I think the best box is like this. most mainstream box this is. Oh, hide clarett first. Yukie: lol hide first. I don’t know the level of player who watch this, cause if you are sure to reach top 32 or even later season, hiding a trick in the beginning is very necessary to do. Because your battle video can be replayed. Yukie: ohh… Damian: Your apex screen is like this, but when playoff starts, you can see all the battle listings. For example, A and B had a match. After the match, there will be a battle report, you can click and watch. So because everyone can watch, players like us who do playoffs, more or less will save one special strategy or two. This is what it is, nothing we could do about. This, one , two , three. Yea like this, this is a very standard three summon, aoe with tank team. Or use.. Bernhardt I saw not many of you use him. Yukie: seems a lot? I’m not sure. Damian: The other day I watch a streamer live stream your apex, I didn’t see him too often. For the case of Bernhardt, same as last time we talked, he has sword dance and rapture combo. So if you need to deal with klose, it’s a good counter to her. Wiler’s special built is like this. Your weapon use gift of eternal life. Troop use catapult. This is to emphasis his healing ability. Another special built is zerida. If you have breeze, you can use this, catapult. Yukie: why? Damian: because you want to do as much area control as you could. As i told you just now, Clarett’s maximum movement is 10 blocks. Because your zerida entering match is 10 blocks coverage, but if you bring catapult it’s gonna be 11 blocks, when your breeze proc it’s gonna be 12 blocks. So in S1, there is even this type of built, (FB, back stub, sly stride) i don’t like it that much, but it’s for a particular purpose. Yukie: How about Leon? Damian: Leon? Is like this. If you need to bring FB it’s like this. Or if you don’t need to bring FB, you can use smash, or thousand hooves, or assault. But in the end we usually use assault. Because assault has an advantage that heal blocks. In the case the opponent’s tank and healer moved already, you use assault, it is very threatening and dangerous for your opponent. Yukie: Global server usually uses thousand hooves, disable guard. Damian: But thousand hooves have a disadvantage that it will be prevented by overlord badge. So we bring those two skills (assault, smash) most of the time. Yukie: I’m not in that level yet so I couldn’t see. Damiain: Lot’s of people on global have their own thinking, they don’t care about CN built here it seems. Like Landius not equipped with overlord badge, I don’t know if it’s because they don’t have. Yukie: They probably don’t have, If not equipped they don’t have. or enchant is not ready. Damian: I was watching apex that day and saw it..so.. And lastly, mages. Your healers, suggest switching to mages if possible. Because rachael’s skill, Arcane Blast. It hurts quick much for holy units. Eh? Since when it has extra dmg for mages too? Hmm.. Oh, and red moon and blue moon staff. If possible, your healers, use them For example tiaris, troops bring sorceress or bolt ranger. Those two troops with good dps. This way she can deal more damage when hit. Yukie: So their enchant has to be full moon? Full moon or crystal are both okay. Because the goal is to stuck your INT as much as you can. Of course full moon is pretty nice. Or if you don’t have many people use breeze, you can use breeze as well. Yukie: Okay, understood. Damian: Let me say the last thing. The last one is klose. Klose can equip with gift of eternal life. But because only have one, i gave it to Yulia. Ok, my part is done, next is your part. Yukie: thank you very much.
