When will Cull and Maw rework go live?

Cull discussion is a hot topic, but I'm feeling Cull's rework will make him more desirable than before. He'd be a solid overall champ both sustainable and a good damage dealer. Still, I think Kabam should give their customers due compensation as that is proper business. How they choose to do that should satisfy their customers and keep the game environment healthy.

I'm looking forward to see how things turn out.

    Maybe this will be the first time a nerf will actually benefit a champ. Cos Cull block prof. is garbage and no immunity. Dunno if he will have immunity, but Cull should vibe intimidation. So must he solid after rework or nerf 😂

    From Kabam's own words, these tweaks will not change the fundamentals of a champ. Only adjustments to existing abilities. In the case of Cull, given that he currently has no immunities, that means he will continue to have no immunities.

    Anything they do will certainly be considered a nerf. At worst, they cripple his damage output, either by lowering attack rating, shortening the duration of rout and/or fury buffs, making it take longer to complete missions, etc. At best, they do some combination of the above, but also improve his block proficiency to make him more sustainable.

    Either way, it sets a terrible bait and switch precedence if they go through with it, and I suspect the actual backlash (not just complaints on the forums), will be severe.

    Interesting argument, and you may be right. We'd have to wait and see. Definitely his damage will he reduced. His block prof looks like getting improved. Regards immunity, looks like he would be without one but they can still introduce it around his charges (which is base ability). For example, at 2 charges he becomes immune bleed. Or as charges goes up he unlock further immunities. I doubt something like this will happen. But they really need to make it worth it rather than pave way for an uproar in the community. Let's see how creative they will be!

    What sucks is leaving people in limbo with the character for 6 months while we wait. How can you rank him up not knowing what he'll look like when they issue the change? They really need to make this a quicker process if this is going to happen. With buffs it doesn't matter as much because nobody is ranking them now anyway, but with Cull he just sits and waits, and waits and waits.

    If kabam lowers Cull base attack by a tad and improve on his better block proficiency and make his sp1 and sp2 unblockable... that would make him still good.
