Due to an issue with Alliance War Defense Tactic, we will be ending this Alliance War Season effective immediately. This current War will not count towards your Alliance War Season Score. War Season eligibility rewards will be reduced to 2 Wars in the Season.

We understand that this is not a perfect solution, but without the ability to remove or freeze the War Rating quick enough, the rest of our Alliance War season would be compromised.

This war will remain active, and in-game, you will still see the season until tomorrow. After we end the season tomorrow, we will be taking some time to collect data and remove the changes to the Alliance War Season score. Once that is complete, we will be able to send out Alliance War Season rewards.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Lesser known high block proficiencies

TP33TP33 Posts: 1,442 ★★★★
I’d just like to take a moment to mention some of the higher block proficiency champions that many wouldn’t consider as high block proficiency champs.

I’ll start with the obvious ones. Cap IW, black proficiency of 76.3%, this is pretty good and leads to high perfect block chance with certain masteries. Dr Doom, only has a 69% block proficiency but has very high armour rating as well on base.

Next we get to Guardian, decent block proficiency but mainly it’s his synergy and perfect block specials ability that really make his block proficiency what it’s known to be. (3289 + 1500 = 4789 which is roughly equal to 70%)

We now find more obscure block proficiency.

Starting with invisible woman who had a base of 69% increasing to 74% with just one F4 synergy, very respectable.

Captain America OG also has high base at 75.9%, add on 40% perfect block chance on all blocks and 20% more with max party and you’re laughing. Oh and his sig can take that chance all the way up to 110% at low health. Cap WWII is very much the same except the perfect block chance is instead based on opponents buffs which is a good utility that many overlook.

Next Red Skull. He has 79% block proficiency and high base armour which can be increased by simply gaining power. Red skull is a kind of underrated utility champion but that’s its own argument.

IMIW has a base BP of 72%, give him that sweet sweet armour and he’s taking 4/5 damage on parries maximum.

Finally professor X with a base block proficiency of 72%, pretty high and very clutch. Also if you don’t feel like taking block damage just make them falter and you’ll be taking 0 damage while channeling to your hearts content. Prof X is known as having good block proficiency but with a couple synergies it’s on par with, if not better, than Dooms or Cap IWs.

That’s it, some cool block proficiency numbers to try and help people put a numerical value on some of the best Cav crystals can get you.

    Red Skull has the highest block proficiency, i think at 6* rank 3 his block prof is above 10K
  • Nice.
    Is that IMIW 4/5th Parry block damage the reason why (at max r5 rank) he doesn’t reach full bar of power from 2 full sets of Parry-MLLLM ?
    Does his reduced damage taken (separate from what BlockProf would reduce it, since CapIW isn’t affected that way) from Parry cause less Power gained from it. (Honestly haven’t checked into his abilities as to what it is that does the 4/5th on Parry)

    Or do ppl know if it is something from his Attacking (non-contact, energy, etc ?) that causes the slower Power Gain ?

    (regarding conversation by some ppl a while back, but not sure it was ever determined exactly why)

    Kabam said its about rank of the champ so a r5 iwim compared to a r2 6 star one the r5 would gain more power than the 6r2

    ...
    I know about that, have even provided that link by Kabam before where they detailed the Power increase as you go from Rank-1 up to Rank-5. (Thus I said “at Max r5 Rank”).

    This is different with IMIW (or at least has been in the past when last tried by lots of ppl).
  • Captain America WWII has perfect block on every block hit, against any opponent with 2 or more buffs.
    Disregarding any other ability that might reduce block proficiency or something

    IMIW just gains less power than other champions at base. It’s not stated but it’s a thing which just is. I guess it balances him bc with a higher natural power gain like Magik he’d be super OP. Think about that final 15%

    Just doesn’t make sense they invisible woman has such high BP, and you can’t use her in that way.

    Also Prof X is a good shout, his BP is amazing

    Masacre...
  • UltimatheoryUltimatheory Posts: 485 ★★★
    Massacre has the same block pro as Prof X which is quite good. In fact if you add Guardian synergy with block pro masteries to most of the other top 20 base block pro champs they get zero damage parries or close to it for most content. You can reference AuntM.ai to see lists of all the base stats of champs.

    Top 20 block pro list for reference:

    And then there's this guy... It's situational, but AFAIK the only champ who can get a perfect block for a full combo or sp without reparry.
