Block Proficiency Broken?
CptMuffin Posts: 85
This has been happening for about a week and a half that I've noticed, but when blocking I am taking almost as much damage as when I get hit cleanly. Its very reminiscent of the changes to block proficiency right after version 12.0. I'm blocking strikes in Alliance Quest and still taking 600+ damage on a block. A regular hit is only a couple hundred more. The numbers don't add up.

Changing it to a percentage isn't going to fix it. You can figure out the percentages by doing a little math. For example, Star Lord at 5/50 has a block proficiency rating of 3556 and when you switch it to a percentage it's 64.0%. Block proficiency when maxed at 800 is roughly 14.40%.
The problem is with the game itself. Star Lord should reduce all incoming damage by 64.0% while blocking just based on his stats alone, never mind perfect block chance, armor, and parry. Right now it's about a 20% reduction in damage while blocking which is a problem with the game. Parry still seems to be working correctly when it happens.
No, block penetration is still zeroed out. You can get it as a synergy with Yondu and either Beast or Nightcrawler though.
