    yeah nothing will change because who knows exactly the definition of a well timed block. that can go either way .. a parry is not considered a well timed block so ... who knows if this "change" to Flow will even matter. i don't think it will.

    what it did though was eliminate those champs who stun with specials because stun doesn't remove the gain.

    Does parrying specials count?

    It is still terrible. Some node combinations suck just bring one of the few counters. I have only seen flow in offseason it definitely sucks still just slightly less terrible

    Flow is worthless and Kabam knows it. Well...not worthless to Kabam I guess, just the community. Probably worth quite a bit to Kabam.

    Flow is making recruiting very difficult if you run war.

    Kabam wont hear our voice, except someone who really influental in mcoc community like seatin.

    I've spend 2k unit last aw season to only get 6* punisher, if kabam doesnt add more rewards in aw nor dismiss defender tactics, soon or later people only focus on aq

    Most alliances are aq focus. War is bar none the worst mode in any video game. Unless you are tier 6 or lower

    The change is not bad but it lowered the effectiveness of Dr. Doom and Wasp because their passives stuns used to counter the DT even on debuff immune nodes which was quite useful. Like I stated in many other threads, this change is a step in the right direction but it does not address the main problem, the amount of power gain. If the defender turtles up for 5 seconds they are most likely at their sp3. This is not only bad for AW in general it is also a horrible look on Kabam because back in the day they specifically said that "We do not want you to use the same characters everywhere." however this node leads people into using Quake, G2099, Warlock, CapIW with a tech champ, void, Ghost with hood, Magik and not much more. The only good thing that comes out of this is that Crossbones, a champion that is not used that frequently, is more viable because of his zero crit ability. If there were more champions that do not crit using any attacks that would be great because people really would have been utilizing their rosters. However there are only 2 characters and this node punishes a game mechanic that you cannot avoid doing even if you want to, which leads to in being a hinderance rather than a challenge.

    Ofc, me saying these means nothing since the OG post regarding the flow "nerf" said they were lowering the number of stacks from 5 to 3 while it never stacked more than 3 in the first place. Even this shows how out of sync and oblivious they are when in comes to competitive AW and player enjoyment. I doubt that they will do anything to Flow this season as well, I hope that they don't, so that many people even the very top alliances decide not to do competitive wars and their profits will plummet. At the end of the day, that is the only reliable way that they consider making actual changes.

    A parry is a well-timed block. You can perform a well-timed block without the parry mastery.

    Also AQ is not all that worthy.

    AQ7 cost in items is high enough to make you waste the glory surplus from running AQ6 in potions and revives. Also donationations are a bloodbath. In return you get a lot of T2A (which are no longer an extra rare resource after 6.4 came out) and too few T5B shards. Not to mention the fact that you need to log in every hour. Even if I could, not worth it.

    AQ6 costs more gold than it gives back, and if you don’t have time to grind Arena and you don’t want to buy the sigil that’s totally not negligible. You get more T2A shards than running AQ5 but, as I said before, T2A are not so rare now: to be honest, I suffer the lack of gold more than the T2As!

    AQ5 AI makes you consider quitting the game during every battle, except for the minibosses. The gold return is good, the glory deficit is not that much comparing with running AQ6.

    I used to push hard on war and to alternate AQ6 and AQ5, but war turned way too stressful to handle. I actually moved from Master/Plat1 to Gold 1, and running AQ5.
    No stress at all, no item consumption in war, and the T5B differential reward is almost completely filled by spending the glory in T5B shards instead of spending it in items.
    The profile growth is slower, but the benefits in life quality are too much.
