Symbiote Supreme Bugs

Being a proud new owner of a 6* Symbiote Supreme I've done a lot testing with him and have noticed a few bugs/issues with him:

1. When he is in "Null's Shadow" mode a well-timed block (ie. parry) is supposed to put a passive stagger on the opponent 100% of the time. Right now he is NOT placing a stagger on every parry while in this mode. My guess is that instead of being coded as an increase to 100% (as it's written on the ability) it's instead multiplying the base 15% chance by 100% making it 30%.

2. His level 3 states that it resets the timer of the current blessing and then activates all blessings. The way it works right now is that any blessing you are currently in at the time of using an L3 does NOT have it's timer reset, instead remaining at the same duration left on the timer from before the L3.

3. Not really a bug but still frustrating none the less is his short back dash. I had really hoped that the developers wouldn't intentionally put in any more champions with short back dashes but here we are again. His back dash length is not as short as Morningstar but not as long as an average champions, ending up somewhere similar to Dr.Voodoo. It doesn't impact every matchup but it makes fighting certain move sets much more difficult as his dash doesn't put him outside the reach of the enemies next attack. This leads to situations where you get cornered much faster trying to bait specials as instead of creating space the AI continues attacking. As an example for testing the general female moveset (Magik, Witch, Widow, etc.) is a prime example of this interaction.

  • I recently took my Symbiote Supreme to 5/65 and have noticed a few things with him as well.

    From what I can tell, Symbiote Supreme's Chthon's Cunning phase is not working properly at the start of fights.
    From his spotlight:

    I've been playing around with him a lot and have noticed that at the beginning of the fight he doesn't deal any damage when nullifying the enemy buffs, and he also doesn't gain any genetic potential either. He does seem to consistently strip their buffs at the start, but he doesn't deal the nullify damage. It came to my attention recently when fighting a Sym. Supreme in variant and he immediately nullified my Voodoo's regen and dealt almost 5k damage. I thought it was strange because I knew that wasn't happening for me when I was playing with Sym. Supreme. However, according to his abilities and the Developer Notes in the spotlight, it seems he is indeed supposed to be nullifying their buffs and dealing that damage at the start of the fight, as he is triggering Chthon's Cunning.

    I've also experienced the inconsistency with staggers applying from parries while in Null's Shadows and the current blessing not resetting after using an L3.

  • If you've noticed that certain active buffs aren't being removed at the start of the fight that is definitely a bug as well, however for the damage I think because it's based on genetic potential those buffs you remove immediately at the start of the fight don't do nullify damage because you start the fight at zero genetic potential. That of course means when fighting against him you shouldn't take nullify damage at the start of the fight either so unless there was some kind of node that gave him genetic potential then that's also a bug. Whoever wrote the "Dev Notes" probably misunderstood how genetic potential is used to scale his nullify damage for that blessing.

    After watching your video and doing some testing it appears that buffs that activate at the start of the fight are coded differently from champion to champion.
    Example:
    Against Unstoppable Colossus - Fight starts, Nullify notification pops up, Unstoppable removed, Mystic Dispersion procs
    Against Dr.Voodo - Fight starts, No notification, No mystic dispersion power gain, but his regen was still prevented

    It looks like Howard the Duck's 8 armors are coded the same as Dr.Voodo's regen, where they are removed "invisibly" without showing the Nullify text or triggering MD or giving you genetic potential.
