Strategies for using P.E.K.K.A
The PEKKA is a card that is able to dominate in some matchups but also feels powerless in others due to its slow swing and movement speed. It is excellent at crushing tanks and support units but is hopeless against swarms. Due to this, she is usually featured among many support cards and sometimes has alternate win-conditions. A prime example of this is the multitude of bridge spam cards that are featured with it.
In a best-case scenario, PEKKA is able to defend your enemy’s attack, then counter- push with support. Because of her ability to counter a plethora of cards and remain at high health, your primary goal is to counter-attack. However, due to the difficulty to get a PEKKA to your opponent’s tower, you sometimes have to rely on damage from your support cards an spells. Do not hesitate to use a Poison or Fireball to hit a unit placed in the back.
Defending PEKKA itself is easy. Swarm units can easily take it, and it can be kited into the opposite lane easily. The main challenge is dealing with the support units that typically follow her. The best way to do this is by separating the PEKKA from the rest of the supports. This allows you to use your melee units to take them out. Use a building, another tank, or cheap swarms to distract the PEKKA, then you can sneak unit something to take out the supports.
Counterpushing can prevent your opponent from building a large push behind the PEKKA. If they place it in the back, they will have little elixir to defend, forcing them to focus on your push with low elixir. Then, you can take out there PEKKA easily since it won’t have any support.
PEKKA does great against almost every win-condition. Its high damage allows it to shred the toughest units. PEKKA is kept in check is how it does as a deck against others. Most match-ups revolve around getting in chip damage with the rest of your deck.
PEKKA is a unique card that is the primary card of the decks that it is in. Unfortunately, most PEKKA decks require multiple legendary and epic cards. However, you the cards featured in PEKKA decks translate to other bridge spam decks such as Bandit, Poison, and Magic Archer,
