**WE ARE NO LONGER Temporarily Reverting Tier 1 War Ban System**

After further discussion, the game team has made the decision not make adjustements to the ban system.
The previously proposed fix would have resolved the issue for Summoners who are on the cusp of T1/T2 play, and negatively impacted Alliances more securely in T1. Instead, we recommend that cusp Alliances switch to Manual Placement to your members to place the allotted 5 Ban Champions limit there.

Apologies for the back and forth, and for any confusion.

Need advice for masochism node in 5.2.4

My 6* antivenom is useless with the node and I tried taking the far left path but Yellowjacket is so annoying.Should I keep trying or should focus on getting better and ranking up.

    You just need to focus on fighting without the use of Parry. I forget the actual fights but Nimrod and Hulkling should both be fine for the path. Guillotine can also reverse regen which will allow you to do damage when you parry them instead of letting them heal. Another option is enabling the Despair Mastery and then using a high debuff champ like Scorpion.

    There are a couple of strategies for handling masochism.

    One is to play stun-immune by not relying on parries to get attack openings, relying on intercepts, or baiting heavies & specials. You try to avoid placing debuffs on them at all and just play around that way.

    Another is to go the oppositie route and overload them with debuffs - remember that masochism works on a timer, once they absorb a debuff, the ability goes into cooldown (7 second I think...?) and you can debuff them all the livelong day while that cooldown is active. So if you debuff them constantly, yes they'll keep healing from it, but you can then rely on the cooldown to nail parries and get more openings. Longer fight, but potentially easier.

    Beyond that, there are some specific champs/synergies that can bypass masochicm - Sabretooth with Black Panther or Killmonger is a particularly good one. It allows Sabretooth to reduce ability accuracy by 100% every time he inflicts a debuff.
