Why does a 5* iceman still take 5% special 3 damage if you hit the 20% reduction perfectly????? Shouldn't it only be 4%????

836★★★You reduce the original damage you would take, say from 40% to 32%, and then Iceman's armour caps that damage at 5%

803★★★so no need to even try to hit the perfect 20% reduction????? seems off in my mind, are there any classes on Kabam logic and kabam math the I can attend lmao

4,070★★★★★wooow you take 5% instead of 4% dmg. brooo pm me if you need someone to talk with! we SHALL get thru this together!

803★★★thx for the sarcasm

329★★Makes perfect sense. That 20% is a 5* SP3 game mechanic. The mechanic is placed first. So like they said above, maybe you drop from 40% damage to 32% damage.

Now.....

Iceman's Ice Armor takes over and says, "Wait! 32% is over 5%. We will reduce that 32% to 5%."

12,057★★★★★if the damage I take from a SP3 is 5000 and with the mini game you reduce that damage by 20%= reduction of 1000.

Iceman will then only take 5% damage from the 4000 being dealt= 400. The logic is sound. Not sure where you are confused at.

836★★★2,957Guardianlol this is even more confusing and wrong. Ice armor won't take 5% of the damage. Ice armor means he'll take max 5% of his health

The real math, is the minigame does the 20% reduction before damage calculation is done. Ice armor caps the damage done to you as its happening.

508★★★Also, note that this is the current ability, and it's working as intended. Maybe a few months from now Kabam will decide it's a bug and change it.
