Inequity bug fix (not?) - please clarify!

Hi,

Read this bug fix was about to go live 'within hours'. Woke up this morning to find that due to an unspecified 'underlying issue' it has been postponed to some unspecified time 'in the future'. Which could mean later today. Or the year 2121. I am not happy about that. At all.

As is, this (expensive) mastery is not working as advertised. Because it doesn't scale with increased attack, it is borderline useless in all harder content, including Act 5, AW, AQ and monthly quests. Eg, any content where it might actually be useful.

@Kabam Miike could you please elaborate on (1) what the 'underlying issue' is? The way I see it, this mastery simply reduces attack (a fixed number, even if attack is boosted by a node) by x% if triggered. And more importantly, (2) narrow down the time-frame that it will be fixed. Are you actively looking into this or is it being back-logged? In other words; does 'future' mean today, this week or potentially months from now?

This is one of the few masteries that could negate some of the insane block damage in harder content, and I paid to unlock and rank it up. To read you have a fix ready, only to retract it, is not good enough.

Please clarify asap. Thanks.

    @Kabam Miike could we please have an update on when the inequity mastery is going to be fixed?

    I’m also curious. It’s acknowledged. A fix was announced. It’s an expensive mastery. Let’s fix it.

    Don't want to create a new post, so I'll reinvigorate this one. It's been a little over a month. That seems quite a lot of time to finalize a bug-fix that was on the verge of being released. It's one of the most expense masteries, and even though it may not be the most popular one, I would like to have it fixed.

    @Kabam Miike can you update me (and others) on this? What happened to the original plan to release the fix?

    Thanks in advance!
  • Yes, keen to hear about this. I want to try it out in AW.

    @Kabam Miike

    Any update on this? This was about to roll out on January 17th but got held back at the last minute. Has any progress been made in the last 43 days?

    Still no news? Will this be included in the next update? Or rolled out independently? @Kabam Miike

    It’s almost spring. Anybody been able to finalize this fix that was hours from being released back when I was snowed in? Or are the bug fixers still in a state of mandatory hibernation? Kinda curious here. Make my day for a change. Thanks!

    Heya mods,

    Given how strongly I agree with you - the warning I got for being entirely out of line, when I suggested there just might be some issues in the game, is utterly deserved, and I’m chastising myself like it has no tomorrow - and how sorry I am for speaking up on behalf of paying customers (mea maxima culpa), I wonder if this question could conceivably be graced with an answer.

    If not, I obviously understand. Completely. It’s not like I bought a product that isn’t functioning as advertised. I fully understand that a description is simply icing on the cake, and customers should not pay attention to those. In fact, I subscribe to this idea wholeheartedly. It’s akin to buying a bread. And ending up with a pair of socks, right?

    That’s all fine. Silly us. In fact, it’s pretty childish to think that what you buy is what you actually get. Omg! Toddlers know that! However, if you could just confirm that this is indeed what’s going on with this particular mastery here, that’d be swell. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

    At this rate they should just compensate everyone who has it unlocked, like they did with willpower, if theyre never going to fix it. (I’m not trying to get free stuff, don’t even have the mastery unlocked) I was part of the Skill Mastery **** show that i believe is still broken.

    Now that I’m back on the forum thanks to the Kabam statement which implies paying customers (among others) that farm are exploiters, let’s revive this post. I’m not implying this mastery is broken, I’m stating it explicitly. And it was acknowledged by Kabam too, so there is nothing arbitrary about it. Since I paid real money to get it, I want it fixed. ASAP. And lacking a fix, I want to be informed about the timeline such a fix is expected. Barring that, I want to know why no such timeline is provided. And if even that is impossible, I want my money back. Thanks in advance.

    Yeah, but I heard they fix things faster these days, e.g. ‘exploits’. So thought maybe this one would be next in line.

    Agreed, they "fix" things fast nowadays.

    Besides, I really want this to be fixed. It should be the most simple fix in history.

    Hope they do, considering going that route with my masteries
  • Be real nice to get an answer for this one of these days. @Kabam Miike @Kabam Vydious
  • @borntohula I admire your dedication
  • We are coming up on 11 months since a bug fix was about to go into effect before getting pulled back at the last minute. Can a mod please give us an update on this issue. I'd say we've been very patient.
  • I got my post removed from the Night Thrasher thread for being "off-topic" so I'll re-post here in the hopes of getting an answer.

    Inequity is listed as a recommended mastery for Night Thrasher. The mastery is currently bugged (the damage reduction is only applied to base damage, not scaled damage like in AQ and AW).

    Is there a fix coming?
  • Night Thrasher, Masacre, and Void all have Inequity listed as a recommended mastery. All 3 of these champs had Champion Spotlights that were published after the mastery was acknowledged to be bugged.
