If they open a 2HKO situation, it's over. Only way to counter is SOB and DR. Kinda annoying...
Don't let them. Hit them on the 1st round.
A trend I notice from Vortex players is that they often either put 0, 2 or 5 pillz to reach optimum pillz recovery if they lose the round.
Thats why Dregn and C Wing were an evil combo when ELO had 12 life points lol.
