1. Heroes Chromie Works Well With

In this section, we will look at the Heroes that work particularly well with Chromie.

1.1. E.T.C.

E.T.C. Portrait E.T.C. is a potent Tank who synergises very well for two reasons. Firstly, his strong crowd control abilities, most notably Powerslide Icon Powerslide and Mosh Pit Icon Mosh Pit, allow Chromie to land her skillshots more easily. Secondly, E.T.C.'s strong presence and mobility enable him to peel enemy aggressors away from Chromie.

1.2. Johanna

Johanna Portrait Similar to E.T.C., Johanna provides excellent peel for Chromie. By the same token, her Condemn Icon Condemn and Blessed Shield Icon Blessed Shield can work wonders with Chromie's skillshots. When playing with Johanna, you need to keep in mind that her mobility is rather limited, so do not position yourself too far away from her.

1.3. Tyrande

Tyrande Portrait While it does require some skill and communication in order to make Tyrande work with Chromie, their synergy can be extremely rewarding. Starfall Icon Starfall provides a powerful AoE-slow effect, which makes aiming Chromie's abilities a lot easier. Furthermore, Tyrande's Sentinel Icon Sentinel gives useful vision, which Chromie can capitalise on in order to position herself and snipe retreating enemies that would otherwise be obscured by the Fog of War.

2. Heroes Chromie Is Countered By

In this section, we will look at the Heroes that counter Chromie particularly well.

2.1. Illidan

Illidan Portrait Illidan is one of the most mobile Heroes in the game, and as such a natural counter to Chromie, who relies on hitting her skillshots a lot.

2.1.1. How To Play Against Illidan

First of all, it is virtually impossible for Chromie to beat Illidan in a straight up one-on-one situation. Consequently, make sure to stay close to your teammates, most importantly your Support, at all times and keep a healthy distance to Illidan. To slow down his advance towards you and keep his movement under control, we advise you to pick Temporal Loop Icon Temporal Loop at Level 10, which is your only tool to escape Illidan's grasp.

2.2. Nova

Nova Portrait Nova can deal an absurd amount of burst damage and is able to quickly take down Chromie, especially when coming from an unexpected angle using Permanent Cloak, Sniper Icon Permanent Cloak, Sniper.

2.2.1. How To Play Against Nova

Map Awareness is key when playing against Nova. Always try to anticipate where Nova might try to flank you from and keep an eye out for a shimmering silhouette. In order to lock her down once she has revealed herself, we recommend picking Temporal Loop Icon Temporal Loop at Level 10.

2.3. Tracer

Tracer Portrait Tracer can swiftly approach Chromie and harass her mercilessly. If her Pulse Bomb Icon Pulse Bomb is ready, she can essentially one-shot Chromie, which makes her one of the deadliest opponents to face.

2.3.1. How To Play Against Tracer

The more reliable your damage is, the harder it will be for Tracer to recklessly engage on you. Unfortunately, Chromie's abilities are the exact opposite of reliable, since they have a slight delay and require good aim. Fortunately, there is your Level 3 talent called Bronze Talons Icon Bronze Talons, which we strongly recommend when playing against Tracer. Your empowered Basic Attacks and your increased range will make her think twice before assaulting you.
