The raffle is now over and the winner is Myfurion!

Hiya all and welcome to the fifth raffle which will be fairly special as I will soon be going on a month long trip to New Zealand. This means that the raffle will last until sometime during the second week of December.

The prize will of course match the length of the raffle and hopefully you will be pleasantly surprised :)

Without further ado: The prize for this fifth raffle is a code for the 2010 BlizzCon gift. This awards the murloc pet 'Deathy'.

Because this pet will be highly sought after by some collectors I must ask that only people who actually need it enter the raffle.
If your friends need it then please have them make an account and enter themselves. I'm sure they will be able to make 10 meaningful posts before the end of the raffle :)


I thought we'd play a little game for this raffle. So let's get to it.

How to enter:

I will start out by listing a battle pet. The choice of abilities will be unknown. The first poster must then come up with a pet that he or she believes will counter my pet and give a reason why they think it would.
The next poster then goes on to list a pet that they think will counter that pet. And so on.

An example:
The above poster has listed the battle pet 'Crow'. It's chosen abilities are unknown, so I decide to counter it with 'Nether Faerie Dragon'.
The reason being that it's a Dragonkin with Magic abilities, making it extremely strong vs. a Flying type. Its Moonfire ability would be able to remove a potential Call Darkness effect and its Evanescence would protect against a possible Nocturnal Strike.

The next person doesn't know the chosen abilities of my nether dragon, but they might go with "Clock'em" because it's strong against Dragonkin, tough vs. Magic and not weak vs. Flying. It would be able to outlive the nether dragon and also protect itself with against high damage with 'Dodge'.

(Please include the pet you're countering in your post - for added clarity)

It doesn't, by any means, have to be the absolute best counter. The important thing is to have fun :)
It's also perfectly okay to go with a pet that has already been mentioned. The next poster might have a different idea on how to counter it!


Once you have countered a pet you will be assigned a number. A /roll will be performed in-game after the raffle is over. The winner will be whoever was assigned the number rolled.

Rules:

To be qualified for entry your account must have been created prior to September 2015 or have at least 10 posts.

Only one entry per person.

You are not eligible to win if you already own the 'Deathy' pet. You may however still play the game, just mention it in your post, so you don't get assigned a number only to be disqualified later!

All entries must be submitted by Thursday, December 10th, at 7 PM CET.

Good luck all!



The pet I choose to start it all is one of my favorites "Lil' Ragnaros"

im gonna go with singing critter (critter) skitter/cocoon strike/nature's touch
rag is an ele type/would have some fire attacks, so the cricket would take less dmg, plus be able to cocoon strike any possible conflagrates and it'd able to heal up pretty often

I'll counter the [Singing Cricket] with [Flayer Youngling]

The cricket has mostly critter damage and has a good survivability; the flayer is resistant to critter damage and has high beast damage :)


(sorry I enter the raffle again, but the prize is way too juicy :D)

Another great Raffle - thanks Madja! :)

I'd choose the Swamp Croaker

'Tongue Lash' and 'Swarm of Flies' would be great against an undead pet, as well as 'Bubble' for some super annoying survivability!

I'd try to counter your Swamp Croaker with a Amber Moth.
As a flying pet it does a lot of damage versus aqua type pets and has good survivability because of Cocoon Strike.

Edit: Oh, I'm dumb. I already own Deathy - please ignore this post while numbering :)
PS: Have a nice time in New Zealand!

I would counter that pet with Qiraji Guardling

It is humanoid so the damage from 'Tongue Lash' and 'Swarm of Flies' would be less

'Reckless Strike' is strong against water so extra damage for you! 'Sandstorm' is a shield like ability against your swarm of flies! while hitting you & 'Crush' ever other turn for damage. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Countering Qiraji Guardling with Lost Netherpup. It's resistant to humanoid damage (Crush), and has Shadow Shock that's strong. Also Howl for added damage (combined with your Reckless Strike you'll be dead in no time!). Darkflame also reduces your humanoid racial healing. :)

I would counter Lost nether pup with a Mechanical Axebeak its haywire would make quick work against it aswell as beast attacks being weak against it. Its lift off or decoy can also be used to lessen any big damage from howl.

A potential counter would be Blue Dragonhawk Hatchling enough resilient versus Flying abilities and some potiential counters against decoy with flamethrower dot effect and multiple quills attack. Bear in mind that flamethrower+Conflagrate combo can be devastating against mechanical!

I counter with a classic Anubisath Idol. It's Crush is strong against Dragonkin and with Stoneskin/Sandstorm it can negate much damage from Quills and the Dot effects.

i would counter the anub idol with eye of the legion.
eye of the legion is undead which will do great damage against humanoids, with shadow lash, agony to increase damage and then soul ward to help protect against any big attack from the idol

i would counter the anub idol with Graves because he can beat everyone, right?

Peterc

I see Peterc's [Graves] and respond with [Mr. Wiggles]. First off, Mr. Wiggles is just about the cutest thing ever. Second, he's a critter - he's crazy scary against undead, and with his Buried Treasure ability he can heal a large chunk of damage. Last, I remember fighting the pig in Blingtron's army in the Celestial Tournament. That thing was EVIL and a pain in the butt to get through. I think Mr. Wiggles can totally take Graves!

Thank you so much for doing this, Madja! I love Deathy, and desperately want him!

Good luck to everyone!

I'm going to counter Mr. Wiggles with Bonkers Humanoid, with some beast attacks, this Timeless Monkey can take down that little piggy.

(Of course, since I don't do PVP, I have NO idea how well it would work, but in theory....)

Counter Bonkers with Tiny Sporebat, as a flying type it will take less damage from his beast moves and it has Shadow Slash and Creeping Fungus undead moves that will do extra damage.

Moonshell Crab

Because it is an aquatic type, so undead attacks wouldn't hurt much but it has magic abilities making it strong against a flying type like Tiny Sporebat.

I will counter Moonshell Crab with Jade Owl. Magic pets take less damage from aquatic moves, and the Jade Owl has a few good flying attacks to quickly dispatch the aquatic crab.

I'd counter Jade Owl with Emerald Proto-Whelp. With dragonkin strong against magic types, Breath and Proto-Strike would be a solid attack combo, leaving two healing options in slot 2 for survivability.
