Dogface is a terrible “counter” for Nightingale… because his DPS comes online later… Panzer is better because she has upfront burst and can destroy Night before or around her first heal comes out.
In the Draft Brawl, and in Freeplay this past week, I’ve basically used Clyde to completely destroy Nightingale before she can get her second heal off… because his burst (especially with his newest update making his quickshot way more reliable) can just completely chew through Night’s healing… (I frequently was able to kill Flatline before or at Night’s first heal timing… then go and kill Night before her second timing… thus reducing the risk of having Flatline revive Night before Flat got killed).
The problem I see with people complaining about Night being god like, is the fact that they don’t deal with her correctly… don’t use Dogface… she heals the team way too much (and Dogface is too vulnerable before he gets his DPS ramped up, so an Odachi or Phoenix can delete him before he gets his combo off… and Min now can knock him right out of his combo with her ammo depletion skill) to actually have his DPS be a reliable way to kill a Nightingale team.
The proper response to a Night is a Panzer, Clyde, Hardscope (3 shots of his RPG just devastate any Night or Flatline)… or hell… even a well played Bolt does consistently better than a Dogface. (and all 3 of the non-Panzers tend to take less immediate Aggro from players than a Panzer, because everyone’s like “oh shit… Panzer, kill her with fire right NAO!!!”
