Hood Stagger Changed

Ever since I got my 6* Hood months ago, his stagger has prevented buffs that would proc in the same instance. Now with the change to Symbiote Supreme, he is interacting with buffs differently than he was yesterday.

In the thread about SS that was recently closed @Kabam Lyra said that the update was specific to Symbiote Supreme
This issue and fix were specific to Symbiote Supreme as mentioned in the notes about the change.
. This doesn't appear to be the case.

This has a strong negative impact on Hood's utility. Was this change with him intentional? He was in no way overpowered, unlike SS.

    Device and Version: iPhone 7

    Device Operating System: iOS 12

    Mobile Carrier: AT&T

    Cellular or WiFi: Both

    Game Version Installed: 21.0.0

    Game Mode: story quests, event quests, duels, all

    Champions Affected: Hood, 1/25 6*

    Active Boosts: None

    Description of the Issue: Until this morning, when I used Hood and he placed a Stagger on the opponent, and the opponent proc'd multiple buffs instantaneously, all of them would be nullied. Examples of situations like this include all the armor and regen buffs against champions like Iron Man, SIM, Iron Patriot; both the true strike and crit buff of Heimdall; the Unstoppable and Furies of The Champion; Unstoppable from Juggernaut or Unstoppable Colossus; War Machine's Empty the Clip, etc etc

    As of this morning, none of this is working properly. He will only stagger one buff even if they all appear at the same time.

    Screenshot or Video: I strongly regret not taking a video of Hood vs The Champion yesterday, because the difference is quite clear against him. Yesterday, he would remove the Unstoppable and Furies from Primal Rage. Now, he only removes the Unstoppable (a video which I do have)


    Another small example I have is vs Heimdall. When Heimdall uses his specials, he gains True Strike and a Precision buff simultaneously. Previous to today, having a Stagger applied before hand would nullify both the buffs. Today, it only removes Precision, strongly reducing Hood's effectiveness as a Heimdall auto block counter. In this video (not my footage) at the :09 second mark you can see Stagger removing both buffs.

    This is my footage, where this no longer happens

    Hood has been acting the same in the months that I have had him, up until today.

    I just posted an additional report, but it looks like it disappeared? Was it removed?

    Edit: nevermind it's back

    I can confirm the same problem on Android.

    Game Mode: story quests, event quests, duels, all

    Any confirmation that this is being looked into with Hood and other champs that stagger, with SS being the exception?

    Now you mention I fought imiw in war 2x and was like what's up with this armor up? He should've been removing them all right?

    I just r3'd him to use on path 7 so I really hope he's not nerfed.

    I am wondering if engineers of Kabam have done two kind of codes for stagger of SS and stagger of the other champs. All staggers have been nerfed simultaneously I believe.

    Iron Man has passive armor buffs. They can be broken with armor break abilities, but they can't be nullified or staggered.
