We are currently experiencing an issue causing a delay in delivery of Summoner Advancement, the Alliance Quest event, and other 3-Day X-Men use event. We are working to resolve this, but it will likely take a few days. We will ensure that these rewards are delivered to affected Alliances. Please do not change Alliances until your rewards are delivered.

DAMN, THIS NEW HULKBUSTER IS....

Pathetically underwhelming. All that time for the rework and you fail to hit on some of the most critical issues. For a champ who relies a lot on heavies his reach is TERRIBLE! You can't punish many other opponents heavies because it's so short.

Nerfing his resistances to not effect suicides is a seriously weak move.

Really all be can do now is have some OK damage output in perfect scenarios, otherwise he's another meh champ.

Much more OML revamp than Colossus revamp, which is a shame for all of the hype around it.

    I personally think he’s fun to play, we’ll see how useful he is when act 6 gets changed but he’s not anywhere near useless like he was

    That's not saying a whole lot since he was in the running for most useless champ in the game before. Now he's AT BEST a middle of the pack champ. After all the hype and a fan vote and what not, to say that it's underwhelming is a drastic understatement

    I never liked his buff in the beta. If i would rather use ghost for everything HB can do, i don't think it's worth ranking him up.

    Think you’re being a bit dramatic
    What's dramatic? Before he was one of the worst champs in the game. Now he's middle of the pack at best.

    Great buff for early game players, probably not going to be as useful for people in or beyond Act 6

    Yeah he's good, but the fact that he needs shocks to do damage and his heavy reach sucks is annoying and a let down. Because he really ramps up if you can get the shock going.

    After a bit of testing, I've come to this conclusion: He's basically a dollar store knockoff colossus.
    Explanation: He has damage, and armor, but thats about it.

    That's hitting the nail on the head. He's a champ who will likely be worth 5* R4 or 6* R1 at best unless you really need a stubborn defender

    Yep. If his resistances applied to suicides or poison/bleed nodes he'd gain some value back but the fact that they didn't even give him that is frustrating.

    Don't think I'll be touching him, I already have a great tech which is ghost, and this strat won't work a lot for later content probably

    People get wowed by big yellow numbers against a 4* champ (RoL WS)who does nothing special and poses no threat. In later game content HB will be a way down the line option. Nobody with sense is going to be clamoring for him in Act 6/7 or Abyss. He's great in the absolutely ideal matchups but for general gameplay he's meh. I wouldn't even put him as a Top 10 tech in this form and that's really disappointing
