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.

Stark Enhanced Spidey - Taunt [Not A Bug]

Recently I have noticed that taunt is not working. I noticed it in the arena and eventually tried it in other areas of the game and still couldn't get taunt to force the opponent to use their specials. In my current war I spent a majority of a fight reactivating taunt and trying to force the opponent to use the specials. It wasn't until some time after I lost taunt that the opponent would eventually use their special.

    on a more serious note, what does taunt even do exactly? (:

    Was there a comment made before that to give reasoning to "on a more serious note?"

    Taunt is a debuff. It reduces the opponents attack by 40% and gives a 70% higher chance to make them use their special attacks. While it is 70%, which means it may not work, it has always worked more times than none. Lately not working at all.

    There could be an issue but you have to remember that it isn't a 100% chance.

    Correct, and I pointed that out. But it hasn't worked at all in any fight and I use him regularly. In my last attempt I attempted 6 taunts in a single fight, to no prevail. While that one fight alone isn't enough to determine an issue, 6 attempts in 1 fight "might" suggest a flaw. But I based my opinion off numerous fights and 70% chance seeming more like 0%

    It could just be me. Hopefully another player who uses him will see this and point that out.

    Hey @R4GE. I did some checking into this for you, and it looks like Taunt is working fine at the moment. It's possible that this is just a bout of bad luck. Thanks for taking the time to check in on this!

    I should have given it another day of hitting more quests up. Not long after I posted this I had little issues. So like you said, just some bad luck on my end. Thanks for responding

    there are a few situations that you'll notice it not wanting to proc, just be patient is all you can do.
    Mordo is one that is pretty obviously conflicted as to wanting to block and not wanting to throw, but it depends on positioning and your own character perhaps. This is just my observation. Others that do this at times seem to be evaders or power gainers as well. Im sure many more variables are involved as well but in the end I dont think it's broken.

    Can we confirm that Taunt is not bugged and is supposed to cause your opponents to use specials? No other champ has this ability so I thought I'd ask to make sure.

    Remember, working as intended does indicate that a change to remove this ability is not coming. I call this the "Pigeon Effect".
