Suicides when Boosting

When I boost with suicides on, why does the suicides tick at my boosted health but willpower only recover my original health? Shouldn't they both work on the same principle... otherwise I'm just dying out here?

    It may be that poison reduces heal rate, so they’re both based off of the same health but willpower is healing less

    Suicide damage is based on boosted health so you will lose more health while boosted.

    I have a hunch that it has something to do with defenders not regenerating their increased health while it’s boosted by a node but that’s just a theory... A useless theory.

    Uh yeah that's fair...but what's not fair is that it seems willpower is not based on boosted health.

    Earlier regen and willpower used to be based on boosted health but it was all changed, don't know the exact statement Kabam released for the change.

    @Kabam Miike any comments on this? Is this a bug? If it isn't, wouldn't it be fair so that they worked the same way? Otherwise health boosts just straight up kill you.

    Can I get a follow up on this? I just popped the expensive 30% green boost and my champs are dying so fast, it really doesn't seem fair. Make willpower and suicide damage operate in the same way regarding % health?

    Isn’t a bug

    This was first brought up around the time (even before) the change to regen was made which was 12.0 in early 2017. There isn’t anything else to say.

    Ah I see. That is pretty unfair.

    Initially, willpower was in accordance to boosted health, which also made defenders regenerate tremendous amount of health (older players remember the old-old AW Map with 3 minis and having Wolvie on the middle mini made him regenerate insanely?).

    Since 12.0, willpower was changed to regen off base health to avoid this interaction. So yes, it’s intended and Kabam doesn’t seem to be interested to be changing this interaction in the near future (or even at all).
