    Quake tested. She can deal 33k damage(half) in 2.5min.

    And if the champs with "true damage" really work which one can deal enough damage on day 5 to kill opponent in 3 minutes?

    Closing threads won’t solve much but since it happened I am gonna comment here. The new node Can’t Stop Won’t Stop is not working as intended, it has causes many issues and unnecessary item use. I might also add that only a handful of champions can handle that node and almost none of them are very relevant with the current meta of the game or have good damage output to be sustainable in map7 such as Juggernaut, UC, Rhino, Korg, Kingpin etc. Is there a sustainable option for this node when it is fixed? Maybe the thing might work but his uptime on the buff is not the much and he is not very common

    Also I would like to add that the node is really tough even when you have the requirementa. when you dont get the buff you hit like a noodle and when tou get it the opponent has huge power gain how are you supposed to deal with that? The forum post about it said you have to be very aggressive against the node, how are you going to be agressive when you have to deal with a passive power gain like the Spite node?

    Not sure if it’s been mentioned, but the defenders on can’t stop won’t stop are also gaining 10% of their max power per second, as opposed to 10% of a BAR of power per second as is stated on the node.

    Closing down the "Can't stop won't stop" thread won't make the problem go away. This node simply doesn't belong in AQ. We already have AW, Act 6 and Variants if we wanna experience idiotic nodes. Time to take a long hard look at the new map 7 and think hard what you're trying to accomplish with this. The game is spiraling out of control.

    This is not the topic to get constructive feedback on. Have "The team" do the fights on this node so they can show us how it's done. We wanna see you "Team" fight this node. What will they use I wonder? The amazing Cyclops?

    Agreed. I guess no one in The Team actually run map7 daily.

    BG made a good point in his stream this afternoon. Crazy nodes are fine for singular content, like Variant, where you can re-start the map or use as many items as you need. In AW/AQ where you only have 15 items and can't reset the map it's much different.

    Good that map 7 is a proper challenge now for the high rewards it gives. Should be grueling difficult for the level of rewards or gives. People have been complaining about mesmerize, need to bring a true strike champ or some evade counter champ. If map 7 is too much, just drop down to map 5/6. Simple. People want the top level rewards and also want the content to get those top rewards to be exactly the level of difficulty THEY WANT or are CAPABLE of. Might not get your way, sorry.

    If map 7 is too much. Ignorant af.

    New Map 7 need to be disabled and competent retested before rolling out again. “Can’t play and won’t play..!!”

    Anyone make it to Hyperion in map 5 yet? Just wondering how it went
  • MkdemariaMkdemaria Posts: 103
    Why introduce a new map of AW on the same day as the new season of AQ? It feels like this was not tested or thought through.

    I did, Void handled him well, he was as bad as you would expect, tentative, holding specials, but I just waited for my intimidating debuffs to slowly stack, not hitting him much, of course petrify was the last debuff, but I got it done in 2:11, if he was more aggressive it could have been faster.

    I was backing up more than the devil when he sees the holy cross, but I just parried and backed up until he decided to launch his specials and hit him no more than once or twice.

    My 5* Void is maxed both in level and sig btw. On the final day, without suicides or boosts you will time out probably.

    My rank 5 void is being wasted right now in this new war map. I brought in sym supreme but I doubt he will work well, just rank 3 undupped

    I love wise guys such as yourself. Who come on the forums or reddit and speak about events they don't even actively engage in. Have you ever done Map 7? Please do enlighten us with more of that wisdom you have.

    Map 7 was fine the way it was. We didn't need a new AQ season 3 months after the launch of the previous one. But here we are. Gotta make that items $$$. I wonder what will happen when the people who actively do Map 7 decide to say screw it and just quit one day. Who will pick up the tab then? All of the wise guys on the forums? All the "free to play" players?

    Any sliver of actual criticism and our messages either get deleted by one of the mods (either that or their job gets "deleted" ....i get it), or replied to by one of the fanboys. Weren't we supposed to be in the age of Post 12.0 anyway? You know when we were promised "Full transparency" moving forward. When retroactive character nerfs were never to occur ever again, and the "Team" would do their best to engage with the "community"? Look at the past 3 months of failure: Which of the issue have the "team" really addressed?

    But yeah good work with launching new AQ Season with new fun & interactive Map 7 nodes at the same time as the new AW map on a Saturday. Good work as always, my compliments to the "team".
    If you're the same Maladar from END, props for not cramming your #1 AQ rank down his throats, even though you could or even should have.

    Hyperion is just too much. The spite is a pain but doable. It is the empathic lock and the RADICALLY altered AI behavior. It’s a nightmare! If the AI doesn’t willingly spam specials (which he doesn’t)It’s almost impossible to bait. Try and walk towards him… He attacks. Hit into this block and back away… Attacks. And not just a normal one or two hit. You have to evade a full five hit combo, then he backs away and another five hit. 2 of those and he’s at 3 bars and your dead. I held out with sym supreme for awhile (felt like an eternity but I was still power locked!?!)and even baited a special. He readily spammed one too. Then my rng luck ran out he didn’t place a stagger in 15 hits... sp3. Dead. I can only imagine what special nightmare the second mini with oscillate will be!?

    You claim that you kept MorningStar as a mini because you felt she fit the level of difficulty you were intending. If that’s the case, hyp is TOO MUCH. At the bare minimum Get rid of empathic lock and adjust AI behavior to fall in line with...every other part of the game. Please!

    As an alliance, we were already considering quitting wars just to focus on AQ maybe map 6. But with new war AND AQ difficulties, We will only be able to AFFORD to do one or the other.

    Please revisit this design. Thanks

    The 1st half sucks with power lock but Luke Cage MVP...Can take Sp3 and his exhaustion Debuffs (with 4+ more stacks) Can reverese his Power Gain

    I got lucky with Hyperion today and he was the happy go lucky use all specials type Hyperion. But if you get the Hyperion that just crosses his arms and sp3 you to death forget about it. You need to tone him down by changing the buffs he has or add SP1 and SP2 bias to his profile. Having emphatic lock for 10 seconds can be a death sentence without you even doing much damage to him.

    Map 7 new nodes are ridiculous. My alliance gave up on it in section one after our guy itemed out on Ultron.... I'm actually surprised he made it that far

    "If you're the same Maladar from END, props for not cramming your #1 AQ rank down his throats, even though you could or even should have"

    My AQ rank is irrelevant bro. Anyone doing Map 7 has to deal with this ****, that was my point. We're all in this together, this is why it irks me when some folks don't get that. I'm sure there's issue in the other maps as well.

    Not to mention the fact that we all had to deal with AW too at the same time, on a Saturday. Just poor management overall.

    ps: for some reason the "quote" edit didn't work properly, so I just put the person quoting in quotations - old school style :)
