**RESOLVED ISSUE WITH SIDE QUEST KEYS**
The game team has resolved this issue. Keys will be distributed via in-game messages and the quest timer will be extended.
More information and timeline here.
*This includes currently unclaimable keys as well*
**WINTER OF WOE - BONUS OBJECTIVE POINT**
As previously announced, the team will be distributing an additional point toward milestones to anyone who completed the Absorbing Man fight in the first step of the Winter of Woe.
This point will be distributed at a later time as it requires the team to pull and analyze data.
The timeline has not been set, but work has started.

A Nick Fury buff...kind of

While Nick Fury is in Life Model Decoy mode shouldn't he be bleed and poison immune like other "robots"?

Also, if we think about it shouldn't he suffer the same types of problems while in that mode (weakness to Magneto, etc).

Something to think about...or not ;-)

    This comes up more often than it should.

    Life Model Decoy

    That’s what LMD stands for, a decoy would be a pretty poor decoy if it didn’t bleed. Take a human and a decoy of them. How do you spot the intruder? See which one bleeds. That’s why LMDs bleed.

    Here is a scene from AoS, it’s been out ages but I’ll put it in a spoiler segment regardless.

    LMD gets shot. Has blood.

    The problem with that logic is that the bleed isn't doing any damage to the LMD, so you could still argue that Nick's LMD should just take no damage from bleed instead of being immune. Which is why I prefer to just accept that it's illogical, for the good of the game.

    Nick fury sucks enough as is to fight as a defender, especially in battlegrounds, and he doesn't need double immunities. Also, from a coding standpoint, I do not think it would be wise to have his sig ability alter his tags and immunities based on if his LMD is there or not.

    What if that “blood” is circulating to make the decoy function. Similar to how a water cooled PC needs the water to keep the CPU… cool… and working. If it sprung a leak (or in this case bled) it’d eventually die.
    That is a good point actually. Though in the clip Bitter linked, the LMD said "I won't bleed out, the synthetic blood is mostly for appearance"

    Though "mostly" suggests there are other factors, so yeah you could well be right.

    There are a hundred different reasons you could apply. Nick's could be a different model, it could be designed to die, it could be need the blood in it like oil. Plus, as you mention she did say "Most".

    I mean, if you're trying to decoy someone wouldn't it be kind of a give away if they carried on as usual while bleeding?

    At the end of the day, the game has to be balanced. I think there's enough logical wiggle-room to say an LMD is not a robot, Nick can bleed even in that mode. Could you logically argue that Nick could have bleed debuffs but not take damage from them? Yeah of course, we could argue it both ways. But Nick is an incredibly powerful champion, he didn't need bleed resistance/immunity even though it is logically sound.

    It's the exact same argument for why Iceman didn't have coldsnap immunity when he was released. He already had 3 immunities (in a time when there were only double immune champions, and there were only about 4 or 5 DOTs in the game). He was already so powerful that yeah sure, you could logically argue that he should be immune to coldsnap. But to balance the champion, not every single logical power was added to him. This is a game, it has to be balanced.
