Summoners, due to a technical issue, this week's series of Alliance Quests will be cancelled at 4pm PT. There will not be any Rewards for this series. The next series of Alliance Quests will start on April 18 at 12pm PT. We will be assessing the impact on Alliances and compensating accordingly, as well as returning Alliance Tickets.

About the Annihilus Update

He is one of the most difficult defenders, if he is going to improve him to attack, consequently he will become even more difficult in defense if he increases the damage of his strikes.
Some champions should be immune to STIFLE, the robots, Dormammu and the 2 Colossus, in armored form he doesn't need to breathe.

    offensively he is super dud and has no damage at all.. defensively he is difficult because of 60% chance for parry to miss whichj is too much n his unstoppables,
    if he was to balance i would reduce that stun chance to 30% n reduce unstopable duration by a margin ,in return he can use some minor power gain , stronger armour breaks ,stiffel immunity , stronger fury too perhaps

    Robots being immune to stifle would be against the class system. Then Annihilus would hit like a wet noodle against most important tech champions. This suggestion is not well thought.

    At this point I agree with you, the game has that of class relations, but it has to have champions that are immune to STIFLE, for example champions that are immune to inverted control.

    It would be good, improves armor break and fury, but also has to decrease defensive skills, if not decrease defensive skills, it will become more OP in defense.

    Why? It's a unique debuff. Why does it automatically need a specific counter? When very effective generic counters to Stifle already exist?

    Name a champ immune to degeneration.

    Or immune to Domino's Critical Failure? (Before anyone chimes in with 'Tech champs': no, they aren't!)

    Or a champ immune to Warlock's Virus?

    Or immune to Plasma passives?

    Or to Nova Flames?

    I'd put forth that Domino, IMIW, Warlock, and Human Torch are more in need of a specific counter than Bug-Faced 'Just-take-a-shrug-off-champ' Annihilus.

    Annihilus is currently amongst the top defenders, if not the best. Doesn’t need any balance at all, in my opinion. Some champs are good at one thing, some champs are good at another. There’s no need all champs can do all things. Anyway, there are older champs deserve the game teams attention for buffing and they are still not getting any (Magneto, Rocket Racoon etc).

    You mean like magneto has an advantage against most techs? It’s already happening in game

    Strange.. thought all threads with speculation about the balance changes were being shut down and removed.. yet here we are..

    That’s one of the few unavoidable exceptions though, a champ having advantage despite the class disadvantage. If that was going to be mainstream, then the class advantage/disadvantage would actually have no meaning. As for Magneto, many skill champs should be tagged as metal but they are not, expanding and exposing more Magneto’s odd advantage to naturally superior techs.

    Just stop. The champ is known to be one of the toughest defenders in game. of course a skilled player can combat that, but it doesn’t change the fact that if the buff his attack he will be that much worse. I face him nearly every war on agis heavy. I have learned him, but that doesn’t mean I want him to be harder.

    6.4 beta there was a mini of him with no retreat. One of the worst fight designs I have ever played
