The team have found the source of the issue and will be updating with our next build.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
**KNOWN BG ISSUE**
We are aware of an issue with the seeding for the beginning of the BG season.
We are adding rewards to higher progression brackets to offset the additional grind.

**Arcade is being extra tricky with his Murder Box...**
It appears Arcade has been non-cooperative in his approach to this month's side quest and presented his clues in a nonsensical order. Lucky you, Summoners, we have our best and brightest on the case and those clues should now be a lot more straightforward. While messing around in Arcade's files we came across a phrase, highlighted and bolded, with sparkles and pointy arrows: "the abode for the dead" ... Maybe that will help you along the way!

Red Skull Explosive Personality

Red Skull starts the fight with 5 armour up buffs. Explosive personality says that when 5 armour up buffs from blocked hits are reached, they explode to deal 25% health as damage. But I’m taking explosive personality damage on first blocked hit (using the regular armour up buffs that Red Skull starts with - this doesn’t happen with other armour champs on this node) and way more than 25% of my health as damage. I’ve had three 5* r4s die on first blocked hit from full health.

    Blocking a Basic Attack

    • Consume one Armor Up Buff generated by Red Skull to Power Drain 10% of the opponent’s Max Power and inflict 114.8 as Direct Damage for each Buff on Red Skull.

    **Developers Note: This ability WILL trigger against projectile based Basic Attacks. 2) The Direct Damage does scale with Quest Nodes that provide a boost to Attack.

    I think that's just the way it's designed there. Don't ever hit his block. I've only played uncollected so far, so not sure about the other difficulties.

    He starts with 5, consider his explosive personality quota filled lol.

    I have read his abilities. It says 342.7 direct damage per buff (uncollected difficulty). He had one resistance buff and 5 armour up buffs. Should’ve been like 2k damage from that. Not > 20k (5* r4 champs and a 6* champ). Also explosive personality doesn’t use armour up buffs generated from other sources (I have played against this node in other quests). KO on first blocked hit seems odd.

    Idk man. I ko'd one champ then decided i should read. Then I ko'd another cuz it took me that long to forget and fall back into habit. Then I stopped hitting blocks and was fine

    The direct damage does scale with attack boost nodes too but thats only 150% extra so yea it should only be doing 5k damage or so if he had 6 buffs. So not sure why youd take that much

    Hitting his block is deadly. Plain and simple. Just bait and intercept, that way life is a lot less hard.

    It does not do what it says and is therefore not working correctly. Or broken if you wish.

    Hey there @Araevin, would you happen to have any video of what your're experiencing? Or would you be able to tell us what champion you were using, where the fight was taking place, or what node it was on?

    The damage Red Skull does when he blocks an attack increases for each Buff on him, so any extra buffs could cause more damage when hitting his block. Explosive Personality should not interact with any of the Armor Up Buffs generated by his abilities though, so any extra info would be helpful for looking into this.

    If you hit him while he is blocking you need to change your game play style
