Dr Strange actively Gaining Power? [Under Investigation]

edited January 2018 in Bugs and Known Issues
I fought Dr Strange on node 35 in AW and he was gaining power each time that I struck him, which he never used to do. I mentioned it to my ally and they confirmed similar encounters with him recently. Node 35 has increased power gain, so maybe there’s a faulty interaction happening. Can someone confirm that this is either a bug or intended? If intended, what all situations does this apply to with him?

Edit: this was in Tier 1.

    Well Dr Strange was my first maxed 4* champion. Back when he started he actively gained power the entire length of the fight. He had and still has, though completely crappy now, an inheriant power gain.

    Basicly he can stand there and do nothing and he will gain power passively.

    If you combine that with Mystic Dispersion, and a power gain node, its possible he would be acting like he first and originally did.

    He gains power steadily
    He gains power when he uses a special attack
    He gains power from mystic dispersion when opponents buffs fall off
    Increased power gain will further increase all of the above

    Were you evading? With the dexterity buff, when you attack him, it will go away and feed MD. That could explain what's happening here.

    No, when doctor strange first came out he was different. He never used to float either. And had a completely different fight style. He was changed multiple times. And he lost his natural power gain.

    They said before he isn’t supposed to gain power naturally from being struck or attacking on a power gain node. The op is right, he never did before.

    It’s probably a bug dude

    No, power gain nodes only increase natural power gain. From being struck or from attacking. Basic attacks. According to kabam at least. This was brought up multiple times when war first came out because of node 21

    You all are addressing passive power gain, which is his ability where he constantly gains power. That’s all he used to do, but he was gaining power from being attacked in war. This is active power gain. And it wasn’t MD, I was watching it increase in chunks as with any other champ being hit.

    Disregard MD. Dr. Strange does not gain power by being stuck. In the previous war setup, putting him on the power gain node did nothing. Now when he is struck, he is gaining power. This is resulting in:

    *Power gain from being struck
    *Passive power gain
    *Power from dex with MD

    Too much damn power.

    My point exactly. I think it’s a bug due to the power gain node, but want to bring it to Kabam’s attention and make sure.

    If you think that is too much power, you must have never came up against Hyperion. Ridiculous power gain, way more than DS ever had.

    Big issue for me with champs like DS, SW. If they will never be available 5* or higher, their abilities should have remained as they once we're. Since they have spayed and neutered them, they should go ahead and give them at least a 5* version, or return them to their awesomeness.

    Kabam, is this interaction intended between Dr Strange and power gain nodes?
  • FluffyFluffy Posts: 446 ★★
    Could this be a result of the Kinetic Reactor node? I am just speculating. He certainly isn't intended to gain power when struck.

    Kinetic reactor gives power when they strike me, not when I strike them. And there’s no kinetic reactor on node 35 in tier 1 war.

    Hey folks. The team is currently looking into this. We'll post an update asap. Thanks!

    So you mean he's acting like a normal Hyperion does? Where's the Nerf on hyp?

    Clearly nothing was solved for 17.0, having the same issues on this node with DS actively gaining power when hit.
  • LocoMotivesLocoMotives Posts: 1,200 ★★★
    @Kabam Wolf any update on this issue? Still occurring on the same node in war.
  • NarcuulNarcuul Posts: 115
    Actively looking into, and promptly pushed to the side. Its a big game with more than its share of problems, and while I don't think more issues are getting dropped than resolved, it seems like a pattern.

    Just node 35, or node 46 as well?
  • LocoMotivesLocoMotives Posts: 1,200 ★★★
    I don’t fight 46 so I can’t say on that one.
  • I didn't see this thread before. I probably should have posted something when I did it, but there was a Dr S in act 5 who did the same thing to me last month. I didn't feel like going back to prove it.
  • He needs it! Give that poor guy a chance again. Dormammu i come to bargin. Give me 20% of my former self
  • The powergain sometimes works if you play Dr. Strange. But only if he has his purble buff (forgot the name). But yes nerf him again. He still is way to powerfull, not :/
  • Any update at all? This has been going on since this new war was implemented. This is ridiculous
  • LocoMotivesLocoMotives Posts: 1,200 ★★★
    Still fighting strange on node 35/tier 1, still gaining way more power than he should.

    Looks to be addressed in latest update. Thanks for your attention.
