  • REMINDER: Carnage's 5-Star Featured Hero Crystal will be the first to take advantage of the new system: https://forums.playcontestofchampions.com/en/discussion/57/new-5-star-champion-addition-and-changes-to-5-star-featured-hero-crystals


    Hi there, We are June the 9th and Carnage is still not concerned about the changing of featured 5* crystal, their are always the old 5 stars in his crystal so why nothing has changed yet?

    Thanks

    Not sure if I understood this correctly... but are you asking why there are still basics in the featured crystals?

    From my understanding the featured crystals have 20-25% chance to pull a featured.
    The other 75-80% is divided between getting the sub featured champs and the regular basic champs.

    Getting basics has the highest %
    Then it's featured
    Then it's subfeatured.
    I'm not exactly sure of the specific %

    170 dollars and a awakening gem later he seems like trash. Trying to figure some way that he maybe good but looks like that may only be in some kind of long fight if you can stack buffs if he can last long. Glass cannon health with a pure defender health and a weak bleed.
  • So, he can get up to 5 buffs.
    Even if he choosed 1 of each, that wouldn't make up to his poor base stats. So, to summarize, is like if Carnage had poor base stats without ANY ability to increase them. The only thing he has is a weak power gain and a weak bleed.

    You can't simply launch a character with an ability and nerf that one in his base stats.
    Psylocke can gain 1 bar of power after a special. You nerfed her passive power gain. Strange can lifesteal, but he has low health and low damage and low power gain. Carnage has 1 of each, and you nerfed all of his base stats.

    Wow just wow. He's easily one of the worst champs in the game. Very unhappy with him. Waited a long time and I'd take spidergwen over him any day.

    Can we get a Dev to comment on the state of Carnage?

    Is he 'working as intended'?
    Or are his base stats bugged?
    Bleed numbers bugged?

    A huge portion of the community have been waiting for this champ and you've totally disappointed them.

    What content do you expect him to be used in?

    I'm struggling in gold master quest with him.... his block damage is phenomenal.

    It's Friday and no mod or dev wanted to acknowledge or comment on questions regarding Carnage and its state, so much for better communication.

    His stats and abilities can't live to its name. Even with 5 furies, his bleed still weak.

    Another Phoenix which only have high prestige and no much use in game except for arena.

    So again before weekend comes, can you comment on this? Or are we gonna wait again til Monday, or you would just forget this champ as much as the others?

    Is he 'working as intended'?
    Or are his base stats bugged?
    Bleed numbers bugged?

    I've been waiting for Carnage and really disappointed releasing him being weak. Bleed should be insane for this champ.

    Response from Mod or Dev is highly appreciated.

    The sig ability of carnage is too weak. I can barely feel the sig ability working.
  • Whododo872Whododo872 Posts: 1,042 ★★★
    Please, can a mod respond to this? There's been an outcry for a carnage buff, and I haven't even seen any acknowledgement from any kabammers. We want to know what's going pn here! We need to know the status of carnage! Is he "working as intended" or not?
  • severedtrevorseveredtrevor Posts: 37
    I can't believe how weak Carnage's bleed is. That is by far the most egregious error in his implementation. The dude should be tearing it up. I'd even be happy if you simply copy/pasted Drax's abilities! I've been hoping for the character to show up in the game for a long time, and I'm majorly disappointed. He is next to useless, it's so sad.

    Just a quick question....
    are the passive buffs meant to activate to include the hit that activates them? Or after them?

    E.g. If carnage hits with medium then a light attack.

    Does the medium hit land then the buff gets applied, then he light attacks, buffed by the medium fury passive, then get the passive crit buff from the light attack?

    Or does the buff activate and improve the action that triggers the buff.

    If he gets hit, then hit again is it only the second hit that benefits from the buff or both?
  • You know what phrase comes to mind when I read this discussion about Carnage?

    "Let them eat cake"

    Still no response from Kabam on how weak this character is.

    Carnage deserves better.
    He should have a bleed ability that would put Gwenpool to shame. He should have a regen ability that would make Wolverine look like a hospital case and Carnage should have a stun resistance like Agent Venom.
    Carnage nearly kills Spider-Man AND Venom... Simultaneously!
    I love his system but he needs to deal more and take more damage.
    He should also be bleed and poison immune...
  • nebneb Posts: 428 ★★★
    Maybe when they release the Punisher 2099 featured crystal and people end up with Carbage when trying to get him there will be more outrage. So far I don't think anyone has been happy with this champ. The overwhelming feeling towards Carnage seems to be disappointment.

    The real problem is designing and properly testing a new champ every 2 weeks doesn't give them enough time to get it right. They don't have time to fix a champ once it's released because they only have 2 weeks to bang out the new rushed champion. Maybe they're understaffed?

    I'd rather see 1 new AWESOME champ a month than 2 turdburgers like Carnage.

    I'd rather we didn't see any new champs for even a couple of months, if they fix carnage and a whole slew of other champions that are ****/been screwed over by diminishing returns.

    Kabam, why we can't bump my ¥ Upgrade Carnage ¥ post? Is this serious?
    We got alot of ideas in there and still waiting for an mod answer, but NO, no answer or any word, so, why you guys ignoring this? Is that serious?

    Hey Rafitas,

    We did already post in there, but don't have anything new to add. We've taken all of the feedback we've gotten on Carnage to the team. They are aware of all of your feelings and reactions towards him, and of how you as a community feel about him. We don't have any more information than that at this time, but rest assured that you guys have been heard!

    I agree about the quality > quantity in terms of releasing champs. They all don't need to be super powerful either, just have some thought and innovation in the character design and can have a purpose in the game, whether it be defensive based, power control, raw damage etc. Not this pile of hot garbage in carnage that looks like the put 1 hour of effort into the design and release it into the game. Its almost like the dev team doesn't know what carnage's abilities are in the comics, there is more to him then scratching and clawing for paper cut bleed damage like a cat.

    Thanks for looking into fixing Carnage. He has amazing potential with his current skills and specials. He really only needs his bleed abilities fixed and his stats (health/atk/armour) buffed. Currently Rocket at 4* 3/30 is stronger than Carnage at 4* 4/40 lol. Please fix and turn him into the champ he was meant to be
  • Draco2199Draco2199 Posts: 803 ★★★
    Hopefully we were heard enough for a fix. I'm holding off spending until I see actual change to carnage, I've been losing interest in this game and was finally excited for carnage now I'm just angry.

    Not only is Carnage not getting justice in general, but it's especially ridiculous that he's got absolutely nothing on Spidey. In the comic world, Carnage came and overpowered Spidey to the point where Spidey sought a team-up with Venom. But the MCOC Carnage doesn't stand a chance against Spidey.

    How about making it so Carnage partially or fully nullifies evade?? Let's make some sense out if this highly significant new champ, Kabam.
