I'm thinking about taking my 5* Killmonger to R5... Kabam help please

Killmonger is not new to the contest by any means (released Feb. 2018), his abilities are well known by now. From the champ spotlight (https://playcontestofchampions.com/champion-spotlight-killmonger/):

"All Attacks: Hitting opponents that are recovering from a Special Attack grants Killmonger True Strike for 16 seconds. This allows him to ignore Armor, Resistances, and Evasion." "Special 2: Vibranium Armor activates 3 Indestructible Charges. A charge is spent to ignore all the incoming damage from an attack." "Special 3: If Killmonger inflicted 15 or more Bleed Debuffs in his fight, he inflicts a Bleed stack for every Bleed he inflicted. Each Bleed deals 746 Direct Damage over 6 seconds. This effect can activate once a fight."

Those abilities plus his synergies with Winter Solider and Void are why I'd like to take him to rank 5.
Can you please have the developers confirm that Killmonger is working as intended? This way I can confidently rank up my Killmonger without worrying that you do not like the way he interacts with future content and either change his abilities and/or descriptions.

    Go for it. Even if they do, the things he will do for you between now and then will be well worth it

    I’d say he isn’t completely safe since I’ve discovered a few things you can do with his counterpunch charges that I haven’t seen anyone do before, and while they don’t necessarily take the champ to ghost level they do provide a pretty solid boost to his gameplay, especially with ws, I won’t say what they are since kabam will likley say it’s bugged even though there’s nothing that seems unintended to me

    Pics might defeat the purpose of not saying what it is...

    Good point. Well, along those lines, I’ve unlocked his secret regen and power burn abilities, but I’m not going to tell you how to do it so they don’t fix the bug.

    Bahaha not gonna lie, this made me laugh. And I mean that in no offence to the OP, it's just funny that posts like this have to come around because of kabams tendencies.

    I've got killmonger at r5 and have to say, he is well worth it. I can't speak on if he will eventually see a nerf, but I don't think so. I've had him at r5 for just over a year and I've noticed no mechanics that will make kabam alter his abilities/function. He was bugged at one time where his indestructible charges let him ignore DoT effects, both passive (like dorms degen) and active (like a Bleed from blade) but of course they patched it within a couple days. I say he's safe.

    I don't know why people are disagreeing with his post. This is the level of confidence we're left with after all the "bug fixes" Kabam puts forth. I think what he's doing is smart.
    What he's doing is pointless. Lost in all the discussion regarding She Hulk and how combos work is the straight up fact that online games like this can and will change over time, and by in large game balance eventually dictates certain things and certain interactions change. The game developers both cannot and will not make promises about how anything will change in the future. If you need a promise that something won't change or you won't rank them up, then you might as well quit the game now because you aren't going to get that promise, ever.

    Sometimes things change in ways that are exceptional even within that context, and game developers have to be flexible in dealing with those situations when they come up. The She Hulk changes were one such situation. But that's a nuanced position that doesn't lend itself to sound-bite encapsulation. Sometimes changes are part of the natural game evolution, and sometimes they go beyond that, and anyone demanding absolute consistency here is also asking for something they will never get.

    You have to play the game with imperfect information about the future. Or not at all. You aren't going to get a third option. There's a lot we can and should be doing about better defining the boundaries of what's reasonable and what's extraordinary game changes, but in an atmosphere where most people are demanding impossible things that conversation isn't going to happen.

    So no, not smart. It doesn't hurt Kabam at all to ask for silly things. It only hurts the players as a whole.

    "Uhh... Well, summoners, our dev team was made aware that killmonger amongst one or two other champs is currently able to chain a medium attack into a light attack.

    We're working on a fix for that right now.

    Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for your trust and patience!"

    Pretty sure they would have done it by now?!😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 right cause all those unintended bug/nerf fixes happens so quickly after champions releases 😂😂😂😂. 4+ years later is apparently still a window for “we never knew they could do that” excuses for making changes to boost spending.

    Just going to leave this here... posted this morning.

    Cull Obsidian:

    After looking at our data across all the game modes we have determined that Cull Obsidian is out damaging every other high-damage Champion in the game. While he does have his limiting factors, once he's fully ramped up he is able to end fights before even high-level Opponents can do any meaningful damage to him.

    The goal of Cull’s rebalance is to make tuning changes that keeps Cull Obsidian as one of the top damage dealers in-game.

    Ironic, coming from someone who started a post with "I don't know why people are disagreeing with his post." Maybe the reason why people disagree and you don't understand why is because not everyone sees things your way and your opinion doesn't make you right.
