Mephisto outlast effect at 1% hp [Under Investigation]

edited October 2018 in Bugs and Known Issues

Above is a vid I uploaded that demonstrates what I think to be the bug that people were referring to on the forums a few days ago. I cant really figure out what else could have cause the end of this fight. I run the game on iOS, but i doubt that matters as this seems to be a problem on both platforms.

    anyone know what else could have caused my sp3 to do 0 damage? its not like he was in his immunity regen phase... that triggers at 30%
  • Same with me . Gr sp don't do any damage sometimes

    Debuffs are paused during specials, saw that recently when I tried to what was going on

    finally issue revealed

    dubuffs don't have to do with why I did 0 damage though.
  • That's actually suspicious. Nicely caught.

    thank you for this.
    people have been trying to call this out for along time.
    but noone has provided any actual proof until now.

    THANK YOU for finally showing a video that highlights this issue rather than just the heresay and meaningless screenshots we have had in the past

    Kabam bad at their job, it definitely shouldn't do no damage and also debuffs should not be paused either with a special 3 but they go out of their way to give the ai and unfair advantage and let them do things we can't

    Would like to see them explain it away, I've seen all kinds of crazy stuff over my career playing and this eneimes at 1% is one of the more irritating ones I've encountered.

    When dying by various debuffs they shouldn't be able to shrug them off and hit a special or a special 3 which either hurts you or kills you.

    Sometimes that damage doesn't scale right and they end up with 1% health when they should be dead forcing us to rush across and hit them again

    Sometimes our specials just do nothing and they survive then die after due to debuffs or something else.


    I constantly see this and I get some don't think it's possible and think its in people's heads but others experience it much more often then other people and we definitely are not looking for it it just happens and we screenshot it or take videos of it and yet the issue still persists with all kinds of other ones.

    I was one of the people that totally brushed this off and said the people that are having trouble getting stopped at 1% are just idiots that don't understand the 1% mathematically has the highest damage pool (because rounding). And your right that nobody is out looking for this. I was recording this vid just to demonstrate to a friend how to evade Mephisto sp1's as he was having trouble, and came across this as a fluke.

    It’s happened to me about 7 times today. So frustrating and hard to catch. Good work.

    Happening a lot.
  • I have 4/5 assasin and I still see the 1% so many times. Even throwing an sp2 with my sig 80 5* r4 medusa.
  • Mephisto doesn’t take damage while consuming his persistent soul charges, you can see this when mephisto consumes his first two and blades hits him twice with no damage done. Leaving mephisto 1 persistent soul charge which must have been consumed as you fired your sp3
  • As long as he as a soul charge, Mephisto won’t die from a sp3. Blade’s Danger sense prevented the healing from it, but the sp3 won’t ko him with a soul up.
  • I see nothing in Mephisto’s description that says he can’t die from a special 3 whole he has charges, and he still has the charge after the special ends, so it didn’t activate to prevent the damage

    that only triggers 1 time, and its at 30%. I have used sp3's on mephisto before and it works fine. I highly doubt that's what caused this, especially considering he didn't even consume the charge at the end when you are saying he did :/

    This is blade messing up Mephisto mechanics more than anything, I think.
  • I’m just trying to make light of this situation, I haven’t used blade or mephisto that much to understand their mechanics, especially when fighting each other.
    I tested it out a little and you’re right blade’s sp3 won’t KO him if he has charges, which I don’t see anything in any description about. Since blade is the only one who can reduce mephisto’s ability accuracy, I believe that this issue is exclusive to them, and has nothing to do with the apparent 1% bug that’s going around.

    I was skeptical if this but i have noticed it too lately. Good on you @Cryptic_Cobra for posting this. Unfortunately, whenever kabam is confronted with hard evidence they either ignore it or delete it.

    it´s happening again a lot of times

    There have been numerous accounts of people doing this with other champs. Every time this topic gets brought up people just brush it off and say "oh you don't have video proof so i don't believe you" This is the first time someone was actually recording when the bug happened. Im 100% positive you can kill Mephisto with a blade sp3 after he has hit his 1 time 30% regen. The 1 remaining charge becomes useless when it comes to immunity once it has had its chance to trigger.

    Here‘s another example where my Emma Frost hits a „2“ on Mephisto with 1% health.

    Best proof we've seen yet, thanks

    But its still a mephisto with charges left so Mephisto could be the one who is bugged
