**KNOWN AW ISSUE**
Please be aware, there is a known issue with Saga badging when observing the AW map.
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.
More information here.
**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!

    I haven't played for months. Why can't I get more 6*s? ;)

    Joking, by the way. Lol. I'm actually starting to feel the pull.

    Lol, I feel ya. I took a long break from the game a while ago which makes me feel like I've progressed slowly, but I really haven't. Just pulled my first 6* a couple days ago. DarkHawk baby!
    Nice pull! I was topping one off before I retired. I just opened it from logging on basically. Kingpin. I can relate to the feeling. I keep looking at my Account thinking if I do come back, I'll have my work cut out for me.
    He's underrated, Grounded.

    I've had him at 4/55 for regular questing for a long time. If you do come back and want any tips for him, send me a message.

    5 star Capiw sig 120 or Hyperion awakened to r5.

    I have Hype and G2099 at r5 rn, with CAIW as my next once I get one more T5. Playing both of them Hyperion is more versatile mechanically, because he doesn’t rely on blocking attacks. In general quest content where there isn’t anything funky with block, I would say the two are equally great. Tldr Hype by a hair.

    Even without true strike, nyone with high AAR should do nicely along with anyone that relies on parry-heavy gameplay. M.O.D.O.K can't auto-block heavies. Really though, anyone will work fine as long as you keep it to MLLL combos. That way if he auto-blocks, he can't retaliate.

    Hopefully you’re using NT with him, assuming you have him. That duo is pretty incredible and counter a lot of stuff just between the two of them; biohazard, freezer burn, caltrops, auto block/evade, back blast, Abom, MS, Mephisto, regen, and they’re both actually pretty tanky.

    what is the best way to use hood and is he a good champion i just pulled him as a 5 star unawakened so wondering if he is rank 3 worthy

    The Hood is a very good, underrated champion. He's niche though, best utilized to nullify buffs. I'd say he's definitely Rank 3 worthy if you don't already have someone like Symbiote Supreme that does that well. I've found that it's best to be invisible as much as you can to maximize damage. So whenever you have a good opportunity, dash back and hold block to activate it and use special 2's in most fights. If your nullifies (or hexes and shocks if you're using other specials) are running out, extend their time on the opponent by using heavy attacks.
    ok thanks

    Why does/would KM ignore BPCWs stun reflect?
    1. His true strike?
    2. I'm crazy and he doesn't under any circumstances?
    3. Other?

    Number 1 is correct. True Strike ignores the effects of armor. In BPCW's case, one of those effects is a stun reflect. So while true strike is active on any champion, that stun reflect should be ignored.
    True Strike does not give any champ the ability to avoid BPCW's stun reflect that I'm aware of. True Strike attacks ignore armor, resistances, auto-evade, and auto-block effects. It does not ignore other abilities that happen to require armor. If Killmonger lands a parry-stun on BPCW while he is in reflect mode with armor stacks he'll get the stun reflected back to him. In fact, since True Strike affects attacks and well-timed blocks are not considered attacks, I don't think True Strike should have any effect at all on what happens when you land a well-timed block (i.e. Parry).

    Just in case, I just tested this with both KM and Karnak, neither were protected from reflected parry-stuns when True Strike was up.

    Incidentally, a couple of terminology things here. First, True Strike doesn't ignore armor "effects." It actually causes your attack damage to ignore armor and resistance based damage mitigation. True Strike doesn't "know" you have armor buffs, or just really high base armor rating. It is all the same to TS. Second, BPCW's stun is not an "effect of armor." It is actually a separate ability that depends on BPCW having at least one active armor buff to function.

    I have him as a 4 star, but until he's awakened, I won't be ranking him up.

    I'd assume that Namor and Domino are only at Rank 3. In that case, Domino. If I'm wrong about their ranks somehow, Human Torch.

    If you have no better options and want to use it, I'd go Corvus. That cheat death mechanic is very useful.
