Annihilus / Memphisto interaction

Annihilus control rod is a Buff. As such, Mephisto’s soul imprisonment at the start of the fight should prevent it from activating (just like it does with Ice Armor). This isn’t working.

    Video above. Soul imprisonment should prevent ALL buffs from activating.

    It has to do with abilities that trigger at the start of the fight.
    But I do agree that soul imprisonment should avoid it, since it works after and before the buff triggers (guess in this case, is not working when they trigger at the same time).
    Same issue happens against other champion's that trigger buffs at the start of the fight

    Iceman's Ice armor buff does not activate against Mephisto at the start of the fight. These things should be consistent.. There are many champions who have buffs right at the start -- Howard the Duck, Iceman, Etc.
    Soul Imprisonment prevents them all from activating.

    Cosmic control rod is a BUFF -- therefore it should not activate against Mephisto.

    Yeh, but those are just some examples where it works.
    There are other examples where it doesn't work, For example, fightning against KG and DV, and even buffs provided by node abilities

    Against KG it works, Mephisto has never had any love, he is broken, and knowing Kabam they'll just change the writing to match what is currently happening and not actually fix him to what it's suppose to be. smh
  • Based on his ability description, it is clearly a bug.

    I've said the same thing about dr voodoos regen for a while. mephisto should prevent it.
  • Voodoo brother Daniel ability adds +100% ability accuracy.. I can see the logic there. Nothing of the sort about Annihilus

    Even with that, it shouldn't affect Soul imprisonment from triggering
  • Agreed!
  • The problem with the Control rod is that it triggers before the fight. Soul imprisonment only triggers after the fight begins. However, I agree that Mephisto should be able to prevent the buffs mentioned above.

    Yes Kabam, looks like a bug. Dr Voodoo still procs regen as well which was fixed in the past, then came back
  • Thanks for the report. We are looking into this issue now.
  • Thank you!

    That's not how Mephisto's Soul Imprisonment works.
    That ability in reality is an Ability Reduction. A 100% Ability Accuracy Reduction to nullify all buff at the start of a fight.
    With an awaken DV, he has an additional 100% Ability Accuracy on top of the 100% chance to trigger regen at the start of a fight. So he has 200% Ability Accuracy.
    You do the math man.
    100% Ability Accuracy Reduction of Mephisto minus 200% Ability Accuracy of DV will equal to 100% Ability Accuracy left on DV.
    So, Mephisto's Soul Imprisonment is not broken. It's just can't win over an awaken DV's ability accuracy.
    If DV is not awaken then Mephisto can nullify the regen.
  • Respectfully, you are incorrect.

    Mephistos soul imprisonments does not nullify buffs, it prevents them from activating. It’s easy to verify, duel... Howard the Duck. Nullify will activate MD (hint, it doesn’t).

    Please let’s keep this thread focused specifically on Annihilus. Feel free to open a separate thread to discuss Voodoo.

    @Kabam Lyra , any word on this yet? Thanks !
