    From champion spotlight on 1/4 11am EST:

    Passive: State of Mind
    - Sentry starts the fight in Unyielding Fortitude and changes to the next State for every 10 Hits in a Combo. When Sentry loses his Combo, he reverts to Unyielding Fortitude.
    - Unyielding Fortitude: 100% chance on entering this State, Sentry cannot lose his Combo. Remains until Sentry changes States.
    - Overpowering Light: 30% chance on entering this State, Sentry's Special 1 Attack Damage is increased by 842.8 per Reality Warp and is Unblockable. Remains until Sentry changes States.
    - Steadfast Approach: 30% chance on entering this State, Sentry's Heavy Attack Damage is increased by 842.8 per Reality Warp. In addition, he gains 100% chance to Perfect Block. Remains until Sentry changes States.
    - Absolute Strength: 30% chance on entering this State, Sentry's Special 2 Attack Damage is increased by 842.8 per Reality Warp and is Unblockable. Remains until Sentry changes States.
    - After Absolute Strength, Sentry restarts State of Mind, entering Unyielding Fortitude.


    From Mikes other comment...page 5...
    There seems to be a lot of confusion, and I'm going to see if we can get the Spotlight updated so this is clearer.

    Every 10 hits in a combo, Sentry will change Modes, and then has a 30% chance to activate the bonus from that Mode. After 10 more hits, he will change Modes again, and have a 30% chance of activating the new Bonus, but will lose the bonus from the previous mode whether or not he has gained the new bonus.

    But your updated statement effectively says you have 100% chance to switch modes, but only 30% to get the buff. Which means a 70% chance to lose a buff and have no positive attributes....which means I want nothing to do with this champ.

    Which is it?

    That’s exactly what it is. That part is clear, as much as none of us want to believe it, that’s the case. You will always change states with every 10 hits, you will only have a 30% chance of getting the bonuses of that state once you’re in it.

    Your other point about indestructible is still a big ? for me though, considering Mike said it doesn’t prevent Sentry from taking SP3 damage. That makes no sense to me.

    i have him 5* r3..

    yes, he switch states every 10 hits (****!) and lost his buff

    after sp3, he regen only 1 charge... (****!)

    i mean.... 30% is very very very **** just sux man, i had a very long fight now, 100+ hits and only have buff 1 time....

    Don’t go for Sentry. He is terrible. Stars have to align for even a decent amount of damage. You have to get 140 combo to get the 5 RWs, then you have to have the power bars ready when you get to a 30% chance to change to the correct state to fire the special. It’s ridiculous. I fought WS for 100 straight hits without being notified I triggered a state. And his sig ability at 40 as a 5* is he has to have more than 75% health to retain the RWs! Garbage champ. Don’t try for him. Go with Void or Hulk.

    this!!!!! 100% correct

    Kabam had the chance to finally make a god tier science champion, but opted to make another Carnage

    Looks like Sentry's PI is higher than Blade's.

    Kabam is all about balancing the game but it's clear they hate science champs.

    I can kinda understand sentry not being that great....
    However....
    The synergy with void should be better. Semtry by himself can understandably not be too powerful as it is only 1 half. It would make perfect sense to need both to unlock his full potential.
    But
    Whilst his synergy with void looks good it does not appear to be good enough for this to be the case.

    That's not at all how the sentry works. He and the void are equally powerful. The void just doesn't have the morality holding it back. Has nothing to do with them being 1 half.

    Actually it does.....

    I kinda understand wat you are saying but......

    The power comes at a cost..... yes sentry has morality holding him back whereas void does not.... every good sentry does void needs to balance it....

    Sentry could not exist without void and void could not exist withput sentry.... they are infact 1 in the same....

    Wat i was getting at is the fact that void exists as sentry is too powerful and great power comes at a cost (in this case the cost is void) so both need to exist for the power....

    If they are not 2 halves (for wantmof a better phrase) then explain how sentry cannot kill the void without killing himself?
    Void is essentially a physical manifestation of a second personality within sentry from the serum that created sentry

    Just saying how i think that if sentrys power comes at the cost of also belng the void then same should apply....
    We can only have the full power of thensemtry if we also have the void.....
    (Lets wait and see wat voids synergy with sentry is)

    Check up on the history. Void is gone. Sentry is still around so they can exist without the other. Also you just said it. Sentry is powerful, with or without the void and vice versa

    FYI there’s a few YouTube videos and a thread that show sentry hits about as hard as Luke Cage. The dissatisfaction and disappointment level is pretty high for folks who got him and duped him as a 5* .
  • Although the Sentry returned to life once more, courtesy of the Apocalypse Twins and the Death Seed, the Void was confirmed to indeed have perished, as he grew weary of the constant circle of getting incinerated and reformed and eventually passed on into the White Hot Room

    hes worse than cable. i hope kabam finds a bug with him if not he useless for offense and defense
  • Sentry is already a dissapointment. R4/55 killing Winter Soldier in 450+ hits? That's an absolute joke. Phoenix is hitting way harder! Considering she's a wet nuddle, that's not good.

    He needs a buff. Immadiately.
  • NomarigerolNomarigerol Posts: 159
    my god, how can Sentry be so weak ? Kabam Miike care to explain please ? I seem to recall "he can burst out a ton of dammage" : big LOL
  • NomarigerolNomarigerol Posts: 159
    Such a disappointment
  • Maat1985Maat1985 Posts: 1,704 ★★★
    I only suggesting something that one could hold onto a little....
    Hoping that the void has a good synergy that would make sentry great....
    Cus if they cam make someone so powerful so bad i am waiting to see how terrible thanos infinty is going to be.....
  • TwuntTwunt Posts: 149
    The 30% chance to trigger should scale up based on combo...starts at 30% then goes up 5% every ten hit combo. Did Kabam think of this? No. The states don’t trigger and you have to hold onto your power bars waiting to see if it will. Bad concept and design. They should revise him and throw us a bone.

    Kabam tested him against a wet sock puppet.

    They tested him the same way they beta test new content in the game : they didn't

    Jeeeeezus, how can they make one of the strongest guys in Marvel so weak! I got him as a 5 and used a gem to awaken to sig 80...using him in AQ right now and he is trash. Either he is broken or needs to be reworked. So disappointed.
  • TempestTempest Posts: 295
    Rip my 15k shards.. He's so bad. Kabam needs to improve him... But they said they would improve carnage too and they still haven't.
  • @Kabam Miike
    100+ hits and no special ability proc? Why release such a strong hero and make him such ****! 600 hits on LOL WS...just shameful
  • I believe Sentry passive ability is broken and bugged. No where in Sentry sig description does it’s say that you lose state change every 10 hits. I have been using him for the last 4 hrs. I notice that when I enter a state change say “Overpowering Light” the way I read the sig description is that I should stay in this state until I change states to either “Steadfast Approach” or “Absolute Strength”. This is not how it’s working. Instead I enter “Overpowering Light” state and then lose “Overpowering Light” when I hit a increment of 10 in my combo meter. I understand every 10 hits makes Sentry have a 30% chance to change states but if he doesn’t change states then I shouldn’t lose the current state I’m in. I’m not losing my combo either. I understand losing my combo would revert Sentry back to “Unyielding Fortitude” this is not the issue/bug I am describing. @Kabam Miike please have the Game team investigate Sentry state changes being lost at increments of 10 hits in a combo without losing combo.

    He's guaranteed to change states every 10 hits. The ability within that state only has a 30% chance to process. So every 10 hits on your combo meter he will change states, from 1 to 2 to 3 to 4 then back to 1.
  • Agree that’s how I read his passive sig ability to work. Unfortunately the way it’s working is if you don’t change states to the next level at intervals of 10 hits you revert back to state 1. That’s not posted in his sig ability. In fact it says the opposite “You will remain in this state until the next state change” so if there isn’t a state change I shouldn’t revert back to state 1. That’s how Sentry sig is currently working when I use him.
