Just curious what would be a good counter to a fully fed Chronos (1on1) as the current patch stands.
Get the surprise onto Chronos instead of chronos getting the surprise on you. Stun's are effective as are Void Talisman's and Barbed Armor.
The Architect has a cinder block with your name on it
Any chain stunner/disabler will do the trick. I've personally never played Chronos (he seems too boring), but he feels like a heavy damage output machine who depends too much on his disables/blink to survive.
A farmed Pandamonium can easily stunlock him and kill him 1v1. Flick + Cannon-ball + 2 auto-attacks + Face Smash + Flurry = Dead Chronos.
Succubus's smitten and Corrupted Disciple's Corrupted Conduit
Oh look at that base damage giving to me
(but srsly, this ain't the thing for countering chronos but it werks)
If it was 1 vs 1 and I was chronos, depending on my opponent I might actually get a restoration stone.
10 second chronofield = guaranteed death
1 on 1 i'd prob skip the axe..
parasite, savage mace, steamboots, doombringer, behemoth's heart, restoration stone.
Note that I'd never get a restoration stone outside of 1 vs 1 (the only reason I'd get it here is again.. it's a full 10 second disable against a single opponent, that's a guaranteed kill every time), and I wouldn't get a symbol of rage if I have a parasite... Life steal doesn't stack
And how the hell does a 1 vs 1 get to the point where a chronos can farm 30K worth of items?
Oh, and because you said fully farmed.. Im assuming you can't jump him and surprise him. Because he doesn't need to farm anymore so he can just wait for you, chronofield you twice and destroy you.
Maybe get like 10 flying couriers w/ mana brain + codex and zap him 10 times
There is no counter to a fully decked out Chronos. He is the strongest late game carry for a reason. The only counter to him is to get the jump on him and kill him first while disabling him the entire time. If you are 1v1ing or something then all he has to do at that point is sit around and wait for you to show up then chronosphere and kill you.
Agreed. It is important that your team initiates as hopefully he won't get a optimal ult off. You want to stunlock him and take him out quickly, as even when silenced, he can deal damage while stunning/stealing agility. Unload your nukes on him, as he is still low hp. Void and barbed are great as his blink+ult should give you time to activate it. Remember to keep a stunner to disable chronos, and possibly use tablet to get people out.
a fully farmed puppet could kill him in disables but would need the jump, a fully farmed DL could do it to provided she got the jump
the easiest way to counter a farmed chronos in a regular game is a pyro with a port key, make sure to stay out of his chrono, port in and gib him when he hits his EP
One on one anything that can stun lock long enough to bring him down.
In team fights you have to keep stuns or burst DPS out of his chronosphere and avoid grouping half your team into it. A good Chronos is always going to land his sphere unless he really screws up...so the best defense is just to stay staggered correctly -- beefy stuff at the front and sides, squishy things with stuns at the back. If he blinks into a group expecting it and tries to pick off the rear he'll probably get stunlocked and bursted down by a competent team.

- l0lz whatz that ch0nos, im hitting 400 damage on you? wha?
- l0lzz what r dat chrnos? i juzt mad3 u wast3 your ult?
If they pick Chronos, you pick one of them.
Otherwise, stick with BP or BD.
Get everyone on your team to but a level 5 codex and instajib Chronos.
Each codex does 600 after magic resist so 600*5=3000
I doubt that Chronos will have more than 3k hp.
Oh **** I just realized that you are talking about 1v1
Be Pyro with 4 Codex Couriers.
