    Pekka being in the meta is not good news for Golem. He isn't even highly used anymore. Viable? Yes. OP? No. Versatile? No. He doesn't need a nerf. Will add this to my sticky later today

    Oh yeah but Golem is overused and it is so hard to deal with it when you don't have any defense

    That's sort of the point. A good defense is essential to any deck. How do you counter your opponent's pushes?
    Golem is balanced right now. The Lightning nerf hit him pretty hard, and beatdown is suffering because of the fast-cycling decks running rampant. Leave him be.

    <p>With all of the huge helps against her that are currently seen in the meta, such as P.E.K.K.A, Tesla, Exe-nado, Inferno Tower/Dragon, etc. she does not seem like a huge threat.</p><p>However, Golem is still very useful, and is powerful in the right players' hands, which is why I do not think she should be changed at all.</p>

    He is quite bad right now. You see, swarms are everywhere so Golem gets countered by those swarms. So he is not powerful. However I cannot say that he is useless because he can still keep up, even though he struggles.

    I use a golem as my main deck on my alt account, golem is very strong. I would nerf both golem and pekka.

    Golem has never been a problem in the game. It is always the support troops that people look past.

    Here is a brief history:
    I started using golem before he was considered meta. (About a month after the goison nerf) Keep in mind this was the last time that golem was even touched by a balance change.

    Insert the introduction of the origional OP night witch.
    Community: GOLEM IS BROKEN, NERF IMMEDIATLY

    NW gets nerfed
    Community: Crickets

    Both Princes get buffed and become meta. Along with the Golem double prince deck
    Community: GOLEM IS BROKEN, NERF IMMEDIATLY

    Both Princes get nerfs
    Community: Crickets

    See how golem hasnt been touched in over a year and a half but somehow keeps being considered OP and not OP? People just fail to look past the win conditions when they look for the blame.

    I have never stopped saying golem was op since. And I am a golem user on my alt account.

  • I agree with ekgoalie34, decks that use win conditions that are entirely bulk like giant and golem aren't strong because the card itself is strong, they are strong because of the support troops which are dealing all of the damage. Nerfing a golems hp won't change anything unless it's a drastic change. It'd be much easier to nerf the dps of common golem supports.

    Also, the problem of Golem is that Supercell purposefully made buildings weaker because they want the game to be troop-focused. One of the most effective way to counter Golem is to distract it with buildings, then kill the support before the Golem.
