If you’re anything like me, you’ve been playing so much 5v5 that your fingers feel like falling off, but you have absolutely no idea what’s going on in 3v3. 3v3 seemingly has no meta, with an ‘anything goes’ rule as long as it can snowball the opposing team somehow. However, what I will be teaching you today is a comp that’s not about snowballing and early kills, but is instead about FRIENDSHIP and FAMILY BONDS.
It’s pretty obvious why this comp is so good, but I’ll give you 10 reasons anyway. Or else I would be clickbait.
- It’s quite easy to get through draft, so any practice you put in will be rewarded pretty often.
- It’s very fun late game
- It’s family friendly enough to show your cousins
- You can ban Kinetic. Her f**k stick isn’t approved by the network.
- The comp has incredibly high sustain
- Late game is so easy you could do it with your eyes closed.
- It counters almost everything (so long as you get it to late game).
- It’s good into REZA : )
- You can get incredibly flexible with your builds (More later)
- You are justified in playing the Fuller House opening on full blast in VC to annoy your teammates.
So, what even is the Family Sitcom comp? It’s pretty simple.
Now, this may seem like a standard Adagio buff comp, but the synergy between all these heroes is perfect. Adagio and Kensei is self explanatory. Infinite energy and easy fire spread for Adagio, tons of healing for Kensei. Phinn protects Kensei’s vulnerable early game and they work fantastic when it comes to stacking BP. Phinn and Adagio can hold out lane for incredibly long amounts of time, and their ult combo is excellent. Now, there’s one problem to this.
You have to get to late game to make Kensei useful.
Imagine it like this. Adagio, Phinn and Kensei are a loving family (The other two vaguely asian male melee assassins aren’t acknowledged, of course). Kensei moves away from home to find a job to get money, and kicks off the Sitcom where the parents try to desperately keep everything together. Eventually, Kensei comes back to finish the series and to make everything right again, winning the game in brilliant fashion.
Or the show crashes and burns before it can get rolling. That’s a possibility too.
To achieve the godly late game of Kensei, you’re going to have to make some comprimises. Adagio and Phinn are the compromise. They can 2v3 the opponents lane push and keep the game going as long as possible. Even if they get behind, Adagio can buy Captain items like Shiver or Capacitors to stay relevant in the game, compromising his own damage for his family, like a good parent. It’s not the best comp, but it feels insanely good to make it succeed, since the late game between all of them is unbeatable.
Also I swear if I get one ‘___ is the Top and ___ is the Bottom’ comments I’m going to go he VG reddit.
