The Nick Fury Synergy Nerf

There was a change recently to Nick Fury’s Restoration Kit Synergy, now not allowing you to shrug off 2 debuffs at the same time, therefore making this Synergy much less useful for bypassing Suicides. I don’t mind that this nerf happened... but I do mind that they did it nearly a freaking month after Nick’s release!

Some people spent many hours, thousands & thousands of units, & some even large amounts of money to get this Synergy, for the fact of it bypassing Suicides. I myself, would’ve bought GMC’s for Nick, if the 3* didn’t have the Synergy... just in case I wanted to run Suicides someday. Sure, Nick is an amazing Champion, but many people just wanted the Synergy. So they went all out... putting they’re sweat, units, tears & sometimes cash to get this guy, only for the center reason behind they’re massive grind to be taken away 2-3 weeks later.


A simple...

“Hey guys, this Champion is bugged. If only want him for his Synergy, don’t waste time, units & money. Just wanted to let you know, because we all know false advertising isn’t very nice”.

...would’ve done wonders. Why you didn’t announce this sooner, I have no idea. But this feels like the definition of “Bait & Switch”. I’m not asking for compensation, but I do ask that you NEVER do this again.

    .....but....it was a fix, not a nerf.

    I believe his synergy states a “bleed, poison, shock or something debuff, Nick will remove it and restore x% of max health. This can only occur once per fight.”

    So if it was removing both bleed AND poison from suicides, it’s a bug right? Lol

    Alrighty, it wasn’t a nerf. My apologies.

    But again... you are all missing my point. I was never mad about any nerf. If you read my post, I was very unhappy with the way they handled it.

    This post is extremely unnecessary. The synergy did not work as intended, therefore this was a bug fix, not a nerf.

    Anything beyond that is some tinfoil hat level of speculation.

    Stop calling everything a nerf, it's getting extremely embarassing.

    @UmbertoDelRio did you read my post? This is not about a nerf, it never was. I could care less a nerf. I was unhappy with the way that they didn’t announce it was a bug until a few hours ago, after everyone already spent many hours, units & money grinding for him. Please, in the future, read posts before commenting on them.
    Are you sh*tting me?
    You literally stated how you think it's a nerf:
    "I don't mind that this nerf happened..."
    And expressed how you are mostly angry with them "nerfing" fury a month after release:
    "But I do mind that they did it nearly a freaking month after Nick’s release!"

    So now that you finally understood the difference between a nerf and a bug fix, are you now angry on them fixing him nearly a freaking month after his release?

    It seems like you don't understand your own post, mate.

    @UmbertoDelRio Nerfing... Bug Fixing... I couldn’t care less. Read my F’ing post & you’ll see I don’t care at all

    I don’t mind that this nerf happened... but I do mind that they did it nearly a freaking month after Nick’s release!

    I only care about that they took so long to do it, nearly a month in fact, after everyone already busted they’re butts to get him. Read the post pal...

    You're upset that people went out of their way to acquire a Champ that wasn't working as intended, and now they fixed it? Obviously, if that's not how he was designed, he would be fixed eventually. I'm sorry, but this one is on the side of people trying to capitalize on a bug.

    I can see your point. Maybe this wasn’t a nerf. Either way, this isn’t the point of my post. What I’m saying is... they should’ve announced that it was bugged a lot sooner, prior to players using time, money & resources to get something that wasn’t even supposed to be there. It feels like false advertising...
    Yeah I understand where you’re coming from.

    If I put it in another perspective, it might be probable that the developers took 1-2 weeks to discover that it wasn’t working as intended as the synergy became more and more popular (hence getting their attention), had a round table amongst themselves to discuss whether they could keep it working as it is currently on live servers. And after going back and forth abit, the conclusion was that it was overpowered, hence the announcement to fix the synergy.
    In that scenario, it would be a nerf... & I think it would warrant compensation for players who got & ranked Fury on the Synergy alone.
    But if they were just looking around one random day, & noticed it not working, that would be a fix & no compensation required. Either way, this situation just shows negligence on Kabams part... & all I ask is that they pay attention more in the future & not do this again. I don’t want compensation, RTD’s... free 6*s or any of that Lol. I just ask that Kabam doesn’t pull this again.

    @GroundedWisdom They didn’t know it was a bug it was a bug tho... did you?

    If it's not operating as the description says, it is indeed a bug. A simple reading of his Stats would show that. Obviously it was known well-enough to be mentioned on Social Media. It was not a nerf. It was a bug, and it was fixed.

    I didn’t say it wasn’t a bug. I didn’t say it wasn’t a bug fix. What I am saying is that a bug fix is a nerf in the same way that a chimpanzee is a primate.

    Are you for real right now? Even if the freaking players knew it was a bug, (which they didn’t) that would mean Kabam knew too... therefore, why not simply announce...

    “Hey, there is a bug with this Champion. Don’t go for him based on the Synergy alone, just a heads up, because we are a good company who lets they’re players know these things!”
  • My_SuperiorMy_Superior Posts: 1,520
    A bug fix can also be a buff. It simply depends on whether the change was beneficial to the character.
  • GroundedWisdomGroundedWisdom Posts: 16,465
    A nerf is a change to the way something is intended to perform. There was nothing intentional about it.
    As for the topic, whether it took them a couple weeks to fix it or a day, there was no reason to assume they were just going to leave it.

    Wait a minute....so you admit people knew and went out and bought him anyway, and your argument is they didn't warn people they were going to fix it? Lol.
    Honestly, people make their own choices.

    Umm... no, I didn’t say that. Feel free to quote exactly where I said that, because it seems your just making stuff up now Lol.

    Kabam simply had no reason to give they’re players a heads up about this bug, & that is my problem here. A simple heads up... saying that there is a bug. By not doing that, they Baited & Switched a lot of players. All I ask is for an announcement ahead of time, like maybe 2 weeks ago, instead of this afternoon Lol

    I litetally just quoted you saying it.

    @GroundedWisdom here is the actual definition of nerf: cause to be weak or ineffective.

    Intention has nothing to do with whether something is nerfed. This is why a bug fix can be considered a nerf.
  • GroundedWisdomGroundedWisdom Posts: 16,465
    Obviously they knew. If they didn't, then they didn't take the time to read, which I highly doubt. If they're going to invest that much energy and Resources into getting a Champ for one specific Synergy, they're going to know exactly what it does and doesn't do.
