  125.  
  126. Enemy ultimate priority:
  127. TOP PRIO:
  128. - EMP, Graviton, Nanoboost, Self-destruct, Earthshatter, Nanoblade, Coalesence
  129.  
  130. MID PRIO:
  131. - Primal Rage, Minefield, Valkyrie, Barrage
  132.  
  133. REACTIONARY:
  134. - Transcendence, Sound Barrier
  135.  
  136.  
  137. PLAY AROUND ENEMY ULTIMATES:
  138. - Dry engage if unwinnable fight and you have time
  139. - Unorthodox positions disrupts TOP PRIO ultimate executions
  140. - D.Va Self-Destruct to make space and fuck up enemy plans
  141. - Purposely give up space, and then D.Va ult (holding chokes enables EZ ults for enemy)
  142. - D.Va Self-Destruct on top of you to counter dives (not vs. insta-kill combos)
  143. - AGGRESSION or UNORTHODOX playstyle disrupts coordinated enemy team
  144. - Walking to objective is too stereotypical and easy for enemy to work with
  145. - Primal Rage can be used freely to force ultimates and win ultimate economy, rarely effective "teamfight ultimate" this meta
  146.  
  147. DISRUPTION ULTIMATES: Self-Destruct, Primal Rage, Nanoboost - DISRUPT ENEMY TEAM -> WIN ULT ECONOMY
  148. !!! Self Destruct for chaos, not for damage (i.e. for SPACE, for DISRUPTION -- not to land kills with Primal Rage combo)
  149.  
  150. Need offensive ultimate to wrap up fight after chaos (Nanoboost)
  151.  
  152. WHEN TO DRY FIGHT:
  153. - They have tier 1 offensive ultimate and you're not in a position to reliably play around it
  154. - Exhausted ultimate economy
  155. - NO DISRUPTION ULTIMATES to force out unwanted ultimates or chaos enough chaos
  156.  
  157. HOW TO WIN FIGHT WITH LESS ULTIMATES:
  158. 1. CAUSE CHAOS (Do WEIRD (OR EARLY) rotations, DISRUPT enemy team (Primal Rage, Self-Destruct)
  159. 2. Force out support ultimates while disrupting to reduce value, counter with your own if possible
  160. 3. Offensive ultimate to secure fight post-support ultimate (Nanoboost, Dragonblade, EMP, Coalesence, Barrage, Graviton)
