    The issue is not the fact that Wolf was mistaken.
    Months ago we were given incorrect info, and that's understandable.

    The issue is that this change came out of the blue, and up to this point no one ever corrected the info.
    the fact that this change was implemented without informing the players beforehand is the problem everyone complains about

    How is this different than any other bug fix? They let us know when a resolution is being pushed.

    It's pretty clear AA is not intended to Stun through Immunity.

    Was this "pretty clear" to you prior to Wolf's post in January or after?

    It was pretty clear to me all along. Nothing about AA's breakdown would enable him to Stun through Debuff Immunity.

    i'm not sure what you mean here. let me try again:

    for months, kabam knew this was a bug.
    during all these months, they had planned to fix it.
    during all these months, they knew the playerbase understood this bug as being "working as intended".
    during all these months, they never bothered to correct the information.

    that last part is the real problem. not the fact that we were misinformed, but the fact that they knew it and fixed the bug without correcting the misinformation

    We can't say what they were and were not aware of, simply because we can't speak for them. Also, the people responsible for fixing said bugs aren't responsible for moderating the Forum, perse. They may check the section, but I doubt they are in the business of clarifying Threads. This has become more blown up than is necessary. Miscommunication does not imply months of careless deceit. Honestly, people get a charge out of any mistake made.

    this miscommunication is being highlighted because of there failure to admit that there was a communcation breakdown on there end and try to fix it for the future
    an

    this is important because if people don't highlight it then it can happen again and again


  • GroundedWisdomGroundedWisdom Posts: 20,480 ★★★★★
    Shrugged off, what do you propose? It was a bug, a Moderator apologized for the miscommuncation, and it's being resolved. I don't see much room for anything else. The way I see it, people have been benefitting from an unintended bug for months, so there really is no need for some sort of compensation. What more could be said? They can't really do much else.

    It wasn't even noticed until now. Probably because they can't keep track of every Thread on a mental basis. They're doing a job. Which means they're focused on their responsibilities. After hundreds a day, you couldn't expect me to recall every word from months ago. There's a whole lack of understanding and compassion going on here. We expect perfection and we become righteously indignant when something slips through the cracks. Ever have a bad day? Ever lose track of something? Ever get focused on something else and lose your place?
    Come on now.

    all they said was our mod gave wrong info.... after it was already pointed out that's the problem

    this should've been addressed way before now

    It would have been had it been brought to their attention. Unfortunately, people were running with the money on that one.

    Come on now.

    one does not matter when it was noticed the fact that it was noticed and nothing was said is the problem
    also there doing a job there job is to communicate between the playerbase AND the game team so why weren't they made aware that they were given this faulty info? again breakdown of communcation

    2 mods them selfs have said always use the search bar to see if a topic has been. brought up
    3 perfection no mistakes are fine mistakes happen but at one point we grow up and take responsibility for our mistakes in this case kabam made a mistake that led to people to some useing res/money for a champ only to find out the reason that those people wanted to use it for will get changed then the responsible thing to do would be refund those res

    imagine you want to buy console for online gaming you do ur research o n it u then decide to ask a rep of that company if it has the ability to play online and they say yes

    then a few months down the road they say it was a bug and they remove it wouldn't u be mad?


    I don't even have aa but yeah I can understand how this can make someone mad

  • GroundedWisdomGroundedWisdom Posts: 20,480 ★★★★★
    Would I be mad? No. If something is a bug, then it's a bug. I'm a lot more focused on the actual issue than someone's mistaken comment. I'm not operating on fuelling mistrust and suspicion. Whether the comment was incorrect or not is inconsequential at this point. It was a bug.
  • GroundedWisdomGroundedWisdom Posts: 20,480 ★★★★★
    The point I'm making is it was a mistaken comment, as per the most recent clarification. We can either hold them over a fire, or accept the fact that mistakes can happen despite diligence. It's not that common of an occurrence, and there could be many reason behind the mistake that don't automatically imply them changing their say to suit their purpose. All I know is I have AA at R5, and none of the reasons I Ranked him involved bypassing Debuff Immunity.

    we are fine with mistaken comments people make mistakes what we would like is for them to try and use this as a learning tool and see where they can improve from there
