@post 304 Don't act like Striker+ Marina wouldn't be scary af. Especially like Crazy Carlo/Striker/Marina/Karen/Randy/Miss Jessie/Jessie/Stacey running rampant, when AllStars are great already with Crazy Carlo, Marina, Jessie, and Saki.
Bottom line: Use Alexei.
Troll, Striker is not an 8/6 SOA. He's a 6/6 SOA that isn't all that powerful anymore. Striker + Marina is scary but is Marina + Saki a better or worse combination to face? I'll take the latter. Like Thoazal said, Qubik among others are on par with him and there are plemny of "others".
Bottom line: Alexei is horrible, try Striker out in fight club before you judge him.
Admittedly I don't play All Stars, but I don't really understand why everyone pines for Striker so much when Alexi exists. You're missing out on 1 damage, ho dang. It's not like trading Daddy Jones for Wee Lee and then having Wee Lee banned every other week.
Because its totally like any DR minus Pussycats/SOA DR is going to stop striker/alexei. i really don't get it, it's like when everyone (including me ) wanted arno to be unbanned but spectro was like "YALL GOT FLORA UR PLS" but i learned it didnt really matter because we got yookie, flora, willow, and all those other great defensive low stars (and then theres nova) anyway, so like, alexei pretty much is a direct striker replacement its ****1***** damage difference. also allstars magic number seems to be odd (carlo, marina) but it could be even i guess but even then unbanning striker is pointless
So most people agree,forget Striker, there's Alexei. All Stars are fine
Ban Saki, Lehane, Jean. MAYBE ban Dr Norton but only in exchange for EITHER Lea or Elvira not both. MAYBE ban Ongh for Troompah (a guy can dream)
Tbh, there are no big issues in elo in terms of balance any more that don't change from week to week
