Symbiote Spider-Man Buff

Hello everyone!

I was looking through some of my champion data the other day and stopped on symbiote spider-man. With his heavy attack, you can land an 80 second armor break on the opponent. I was thinking to myself; what could make this champion more relevant. Then it hit me: instead or armor break, how about armor shatter? It's something pretty minor that wouldn't make him overpowered but would make him more relevant and help him counter newer champions. Am I just making another op cosmic champ or simply making an older character more relevant and a viable option for the Variant Rank-Up Gems? @Kabam Miike @Kabam Zibiit

    I think Spiderman (Symbiote)'s best attribute is his "sticktouitiveness". Incredibly reliable AND simple (on offense). His high damage, crit rating, guaranteed sp2 crit, and lack of complicated mechanics is what makes him, well, reliable as he doesnt rely on something that can be shut down often and it makes him, well, simple because theres isnt much to keep track off.

    Will replacing his armor breaks with shatter both fit his character AND keep him balanced? Well, armor shatters are more reliable as they cant be shrugged off as easily. You also wont get penalized as much bc it is an active debuff (theres a node in dungeons that does that IIRC). So it improves SS's reliability. What about simplicity? Well, it makes no changes in his playstyle and honestly, you probably wont even notice a difference. So I say it preserves SS's simplicity. Finally, will he be balanced? Hes average now and giving him this would make him maybe slightly above?

    So he meets the criteria i just made up, so thats a yes for me 👍

    *other possible buffs that meet the criteria are increase block proficiency, unstoppable while holding heavy, higher special damage, etc. Basically things that passively improve upon the champ

    i mean it would be cool but cosmic doesn't need anymore new champs for the rest of the year
