**UPDATE**
We are currently working to fix a known issue regarding Alliance Prestige. With the introduction of Relics, Summoner Prestige is now the average PI of your Top 5 Champions and the average PI of your Top 5 Relics (regardless of which Champion they are attached to) combined.

Today we pushed a fix that will allow for proper reward calculations in Alliance Quests. However, the display for Alliance Prestige will not be accurate and does not include Relic Prestige. This is a display issue only.

Why did Kabam change how armor break work?



For some reason, the armor break tries to nullify an armor buff. The armor break was supposed to just remove the armor up buff



Nullifying and removing are two very different things in this game. An example of this is Captain Marvel.



If removing and nullifying were the same thing, this ability would not work against opponents with immunity to nullify, but ...



It works. In the video below you can see that even by applying armor break the cosmic rod is not removed because the armor break is not trying to nullify. The rod is only removed when Cap IW hits an attack with a kinectic potential.



I don't remember which update the armor break started to be treated as a nullify, Kabam simply changed and did not warn about. I just want to know the reason for this change. Because it simply makes Annihilus useless in any fight that has an armor break and it also changes some node interactions

    It always worked this way. It just wasnt noticeable before Anni was released

    well for the cmm and thing example, her pulverize isn't nullify which is why it can remove armor on thing or colossus

    Yes I know. The pulverize is not a nullify because it just removes the armor up effects. The armor break worked in the same way only removed an armor up buff but now it is nullifying instead of removing.

    Actually Armor Break doesn't remove the Rod Buff.
    His own ability removes the effect when a nullify ability was triggered.

    I think its a bit silly that it worked like this in the first place

    And for some reason the armor break is working as a nullify, causing this ability to be activated. The armor break should only remove the armor up buff and not nullify

    I prefer it like this

    It is true that this makes it easier to fight against it and opens up more options. But it gets really bad when you use
    him in the attack, as Kabam is causing new characters to cause armor break by simply breathing like the Air Walker. this is annihilating Annihilus.

    Armour break nullifies armour. And because of that it is considered a nullify attempt. The Armour break can't nullify his Rod he shuts it down himself

    The problem is precisely the part that armor break nullifies armor up. When Annihilus was releasead the armor break did not function as a nullify but was later changed to function as a nullify without warning. Armor break should not nullify armor up buff, but only remove and as I already showed nullify and remove are two different things.
