    Why 50% chance to evade
    It's mix masher korg and doom all over again

    The idea here is to encourage Evade encounters, and combined with the Skillful Distraction buff, this gives more Skill Champions access to the kit necessary to prevent Evasion.
    This is a horrible idea, lets talk about the number of skill champs that can cause Disorient, Incinerate or Shock effect.
    - Disorient (Fury[SP1], Night Thrasher[Synergy], Ronin [SP1])
    - Incinerate (Agent Venom [SP2], Cross Bones[SP2], Gwenpool [SP1], Winter Soldier [SP1/SP2]
    - Shock (Black Widow DO [Basic], Night Thrasher[SP1], Thor Rag [SP3]

    Okay based on that only 8 out of 32 skill champs are useful for this buff and only one of the champs can inflict the debuff without having to rely on a special attack
    You are forgetting masacre and fury.
    Good catch with Masacre, i have fury on the list but he requires an SP1 to trigger disorient
    Elsa Bloodstone was also missed as Incinerate.
    But it's suck that her bouns damage from crit capped on her based atk rating, so she won't deal insane damage compare to other who benefit it
    It cant be reduced by 50% weakness either so even steven. My 6* r2 hits 10k mediums with all the furies so im happy enough with that

    I think Skill is the only class that is more limited now than in the previous iteration. That being said, Elsa’s gonna be a banger for it. Just drop a parry, M-M and you’ve placed an incinerate safely on the opponent and you’re off to the races.

    Falcon is also going to be extremely fun. He may not benefit a ton from the nodes, but he is himself a monstrous damage dealer against mix master.

    I, personally, like the changes overall. I know it’s not a rewards update which would be cool, but this looks fun and I’ve been real burned out lately. Looking forward to it.

    Bunch of guys who are only interested in the rewards and not the experience. Seriously what do you all play this game for?

    I mean it doesn't directly affect me that much, but the Tech one is super annoying. I mean the only tech champs that i can think of that inflict Armor Break in their normal kit are IMIW, Iron Man, Iron Patriot, War Machine, and Hulkbuster. And I would really only use Hulkbuster in the Cav EQ

    Sentinel, spam L1. Gives you Heal block and AB

    I prefer the original cav nodes by a lot. These new ones do not have nearly as many counters.

    Some of them are Better (Cosmic for Example with the removal of Buffed Up giving Tons more Options), but some of them are also way worse (Skill for Example which is now an Evade Fest with only around 14 Counters when the Current Skill Node effects EVERYONE Positively because of Parry)...
