Summoners, we recently encountered an issue with the Alliance Quest Setup Phase Starting Timer that may cause the Setup Phase Starting Timer to display erroneous information, though we are working on a fix for it as quickly as possible. Additionally, if the Setup Phase does not let you plan your days in advance, you will be able to once the Event officially begins on the Alliance Quest Start date.

For clarity, the next Alliance Quest Enlistment Phase will begin on December 5 at 20:00 UTC, regardless of what the in-game timers display.

The next Alliance Quest Start will be on December 6 at 20:00 UTC. This is when Summoners should be able to enter each Map. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to resolve this issue.
Alliance War Season Rewards will start to roll out to Summoners very soon. These will take a while to get to everybody, so do not worry if an Alliance Mate receives their rewards, but you haven't yet. We thank you for your patience.

Will This Annihilus Bug Ever Get Fixed?

So this bug has been in the game for the longest time. I have tried countless times to let people know about it and even tried contacting Kabam about it and it has yet to be addressed or fixed. The bug that I am referring to is when Annihilus is armor broken he looses his cosmic control rod. As far as I am aware, armor break aren't considered a "nullify" ability and if you look in his description it does not say that armor breaks remove his cosmic control rod. This is a huge unintentional nerf to him because I remember using my 5* Annihilus to counter Vision Aarkus when he was a boss in his EQ. Now he can't do that because he only gains his immunities when he has his cosmic control rod but when since Vision Aarkus armor breaks when you are close to him, it removes it. If I am somehow wrong and armor breaks are somehow intended to nullify his cosmic control rod please explain to me how because as of now he is bugged and unintentionally nerfed. Either he needs to get fixed or his description needs to be updated.

    Armor break is coded as a nullify it’s not a bug, neither is it limited to annihilus.

    Ok thanks for informing me but I still think it is shady that Kabam, as far as I know, didn't say anything about making him no longer able to counter Vision Aarkus in any patch notes

    Armor Break does function as a nullify.

    Thanks for letting me know

    AB = nullify. It can mess you up on some Act 7 node as well I believe.

    Yes Kabam said it in one of my post about it

    However, if we follow this pov, champs immune to nullify shouldn't loose armor up when they are armor broken. Or with the node preventing nullifies. But they loose armor up. So armor break is not like a nullify and annihilus should be fixed. I've been saying that for way too long.
    Thank you

    I hope they remove this interaction, he’s a cosmic champ who’s getting literally countered by tech champs like hulk buster lol. Just a bit silly imo. Wouldn’t exactly make him meta defining to change the interaction.

    And the problem I have with Kabam is that he used to counter champs like Vision Aarkus for example. Like I said in my post, I used my 5* to counter Vision Aarkus when he was an EQ boss. It's just shady how information on this change is scarce and wasn't properly addressed in any update patch notes

    Armor break has functioned like this for a very long time?

    I didn't say it didn't. If you read my post you will see that I said that he used to be able to counter Aarkus and when they removed the ability for him to do that it wasn't addressed in any update patch notes. It was only addressed on 1 post on the forums. It would be important to put something like this in the patch notes for people who weren't aware that AB were considered a nullify ability.
