In my opinion, everything doesnt need a counter. 8-)


What so you can spam it?

Shield absolvers don't really have a counter, but they don't get spammed.

Outranged by Mobile artillery, Fatboy, T2 stationary artillery, equal range to the Sera sniper's longe range shot.

Yep, no counter...

To get back on topic, there are no factions I hate playing against. Playing against competently captained Cybran navy can be very frustrating, but of course the trick (as an exclusively Cybran player myself) is to remember to use those tricks myself. Shieldboats are similarly annoying - but ultimately managable.

If it were the case, and not just navy specifically, that playing against a particular faction ruins your fun time and again, then its imbalanced. Its like 4th ed 40K 'nid genestealer builds. Or 7th ed tzeentch builds with 20+ power dice each phase. Not unbeatable, just boring and aggravating because the meta becomes one-trick for that faction.

Those are counters to it in the same way t2 arty is a counter to destroyers or t2 pd is a counter to lab raids. Sure they kill it, doesn't make it a counter though, you are investing too much, when the most damaging effect is the shield drain. Still, nobody really uses them.

How is mobile arty countering absolvers equivalent to t2 arty countering a navy loss? You brought up the issue with your own example. It isn’t spammed because the niche it needs to be spammed in is not seen often. If you had some aeon mirror matchup where both dudes had some nutty 30 asylum 10 sniper mix, they would be great.
