Synergy Update

It seems like updating synergies would simultaneously be a relatively easy thing to do for Kabam (relative to reworking all the old characters), be beneficial for us players, encourage the use of some forgotten champions, and be seen as a step forward in terms of buffing many champions. I have both Star-Lord and Yondu as high leveled 5 stars and am disappointed their synergy is "rivals", yet I feel the need to force CMM and NF into my team because of the incredible unique synergy they have in addition to NF's solo synergy (+10% attack for the whole team). I believe Yondu is a Unique synergy away from being a really good champ.

Just an idea. I know I would love a "Synergy Update" for a lot of the old guys, but I may be alone here. Would love to hear what anyone else thinks. Cheers!

    Describe "relatively easy" in terms of coding? Even adding synergies takes time and research to make sure they actually work. They have a plan to update older champs. Let's just wait and see how the first run goes.

    Very fair- I mean much, much easier than reworking a full character. Can't imagine how many test cases are truly broken by a synergy overhaul, as long as they stick to making synergies increase certain stats or get a small boost to some ability. Then again, I have no idea what Kabam is working with here. Everywhere I have been, these sort of updates are not as software-breaking as one might think. Changing the mechanics of a full character is a monster though. I get why these character reworks take a while. So yes, I am not too picky and I am very open to waiting to see how their plan to update champs goes. But it is valid to also consider updating synergies in the meantime.

    2 examples-
    Guilly 2099
    Sasquatch/Sabertooth

    Both of these had game breaking synergies even though 1 wasn't completely practical. It's not just about the coding alone. It's about the actual testing and refinement.

    I also believe that synergy updates will come with the new way they are updating champs as well.

    Ok, I am going to go back to my job as a Software Engineer lol
