Thing Rock Stack Bug


Near the end of this video, you can see that when the thing is at 16 or 17 rock stacks and parrys to get 5 more rock stacks the timer doesn't restart on the 16th rock stack. Before the latest update when the thing had 16 rock stacks and parried to get 5 more the time for the 16th rock stack to go away resets. This is an annoying bug because if you had a 16th rock stack and parried and wanted to use a special 3 to get all the good benefits of having 20 rock stacks when using it you might only have 19 because the timer will take the 16th rock stack away.

    So, yesterday new patch came to us and I spotted a small difference in how Thing stacks works when above 15. But I dont see any thread about it, just this:
    When Thing goes above 15 stacks, it gets new stacks that expire in 5, converting to passive fury, max 20. untill update, the new stacks above 20, had to replace the oldest and reset timer, without any fury, so it was easier to maintain a 20 stack. Now, new stacks above 20 dont replace the old ones, making harder to maintain 20. I want to see a post about this at least, not just a hidden nerf.

    Unintended bug maybe?

    What's with all the accusations? I have no love-loss for Kabam... but c'mon.

    Okay, that‘s the reason why the synergy with human torch doesn‘t work anymore. It‘s not possible to gain instant passive fury when thing would gain more than 20 rock stacks anymore when human torch is in the team.
    That‘s definitely a BUG.
  • Hey there, do you happen to have any video of this occurring, or would you be able to tell us any specific fights or modes this has happened in?

    Ever since latest update, Thing will not immediately covert rock charges into fury while parrying with Torch Synergy. Synergy states, when he gets to 20 charges, any additional stacks will convert immediately. He acts like a normal fight resetting the timer each parry. Cannot get it to work in any game mode.

    I also have this issue. I've been using them together for months now in the arena. At first I thought maybe I was mistaken, but upon further testing, it has to be a bug.

    Thing and human torch synergy not working. Thing, before the update, would refresh his rock stacks at 20 and gain furies when hit or taking a blocked attack. Example, at 20 you take a blocked hit you would gain a passive fury from torch synergy. Now it doesn't.

    Another separate bug with thing, the sp3 fury boost doesn’t work with the chanpion synergy furies and there’s nothing to say it won’t

    Thanks for this information. We've passed it along for review!


  • I can go into a quest & get a video of it if you want me too?

    Guys forget about the synergy right now the main bug that also affects the synergy is that when thing is at 20 rock stacks and parries. The timer on those rock stacks should reset the timer but it doesn't anymore. This is evident in the video I posted because you see Thing had 16 rock stacks and parried and one rock stacks timer didn't reset.

    While I would agree it’s certainly not working how it was before, I wouldn’t be so quick to assume it is a bug.

    I may be mistaken but I can’t see in his abilities where it says they should reset. Just that stacks above 15 last for 5 seconds and are capped at 20.

    @Kabam Zibiit @Kabam Lyra
    Hi - as requested here’s a vid of the Thing bug, and the Thing + Human Torch bug. We can see that the furies aren’t stacking with each additional parry.

    Thanks for helping with the fix. Much appreciate the hard work!

    This video shows it well that when parrying at 20 rock stacks the timer doesn't reset thank you.

    The synergy has no longer able to INSTANTLY convert any Rock Stack over 20 into his Permanent Fury Effect.
    Can someone please tell me this doesn't only happening to me, please?

    The passive aggressive synergy with human torch is not working. Once at 20 rock stacks thing should be converting any extra stacks to passive furies but he does not. While blocking attacks or taking hits the counter goes over 20 but it appears that the synergy does not "immediately" convert them.

    @Kabam Lyra This is on an Iphone XS MAX. it seems to happen no matter what device i use. To test i opened my account on an iphone 8 and it still did not work. It was working before last patch. I used this synergy for last months event and it worked every time.
  • Hey there, the team is working on a resolution for this that will be out in an upcoming update.
