Abyss Gulk has no metal tag

Pretty much the title.

I was running path 5 in the abyss and got to the third fight which is Gulk who I was planning to use Magneto for, but I noticed straight away he wasn't being magnetised. I checked his tags and there was no metal tag, even though he should have it now with the latest major update this month. It screwed up my whole game plan so I backed out but I forgot to take a screenshot.

There's probably other areas of the game where the metal tag hasn't been added yet so could you guys please look into that, I'm going to hold off on path 5 for now until it's fixed.

    Things like AOL LOL ROL don’t receive updates besides animations

    Ah I see, that's a bit annoying.
    Thanks for clearing that up for me. I guess I have to go with my plan B of Void for that Gulk haha

    He’s mistaken about them not receiving updates to tags, they don’t get updated abilities. Magik in LoL is an example of this, she didn’t have the dimensional tag until she was updated after it was pointed out she was not triggering Blade’s Danger Sense.

    If that's the case then hopefully a mod sees this and can raise it to be fixed in a future update. I was so excited to use Magneto for that Gulk fight so hopefully I still can.

    On an unrelated note, @CoatHang3r it's awesome that you replied to this. I watched your Abyss Killmonger takedown with Vision Aarkus not too long ago and you've got me very tempted to rank 5 my Vision for that fight!

    He should have it, animations and tags are updated, abilities aren’t, I think they’re coded differently so they have to add it separately, and they must’ve forgot

    @Kabam Miike could you pass this on to the decision makers here? If the precedent was already set by adding a tag to Magik then it would only be fair and consistent to add the #metal tag to Gladiator Hulk and Taskmaster in Abyss
  • I'll check in with the rest of the team about this and get back to you all with what I find out once I have some more info.
  • Hey there everyone, I wanted to give you all an update on this. As it stands, we won't be adding the Metal tag to new Champions in the Abyss. For content like the Labyrinth or Abyss, content that is supposed to be the toughest content in the game when it is released, we try to not change it more than needed (outside of fixing bugs that pop up) in order to make sure that anyone who completes it experiences as close to the same content as possible.

    its because if they change tht gulk so ppl can smash it with mags now a whole lotta ppl will go bananas for compemsation cause they could have done this or that if it were tht way before . so there doomed if they do it an if they dnt . suvks but the option to avoid having to potentially compensate will always be favoured . good luck op . smash aol ..

    Why did you change Cable’s sp1? Can you please ask the devs what happened there?

    That’s simple; and shown in the second post. Animations are ubiquitous/common/shared assets for champions, they do not create new animation sets for champions when they create new ability sheets for champions like those found in the abyss.

    Kabam you’re acting like the change is to gulk, it’s not...he should be metal tagged and he’s not, that’s a mistake, you buffed magneto and so now we realised it, but the magneto buff is something we all welcomed, nobody can say it’s not fair that gulk is easier now because you buffed magneto, correct the ommission, it’s what you normally do, and it makes a LOT more sense
  • KevanproGKevanproG Posts: 266 ★★
    Magneto buff is still new it hasn't even been a month so I think you should change the tag kabam
  • WhatElseWhatElse Posts: 155 ★★
    Does this approach make sense? It’s normal to have new champions available to beat old content in an alternative way (or even in a just better way). That was the case of Aegon. Not putting #metal tag on Gulk is not compatible with the rest of the content and loses the value of Magneto being a possible Abyss counter on those paths.
  • WhatElseWhatElse Posts: 155 ★★
    By the way: Abyss Taskmaster faces the same #metal tag issue.

    Ummmm no? @Kabam Zibiit Gulk is not going to be easy all of a sudden. Magneto wasn't buffed months ago, only days ago so people who did it prior to the buff of Magneto, never really used Magneto for any content. But now that he is a viable option, people will try to use him (hence this post) and take advantage of it.

    Does this also mean that in future if you launch a champion that specifically counters Gladiator Hulk, would that champion not counter him in Abyss? Ofc. not! This is ridiculous and isn't consistent with your methods.

    No they're not. Nobody who completed LOL previously cried for compensation when Aegon was released. It's inevitable that all content will get easier with new champs.

  • HI_guysHI_guys Posts: 2,058 ★★★★★

    Changing it shows progression and would be the logical move.

    To not do it is complacent and negligent and inconsistent.

    It isn't beneficial to them to change it.

    So they won't.

    You mean just the tag? The maybe I'm not sure.

    But I'm thankful they haven't CHANGED ROL and LOL

    I don't think that's how it works. Magneto needs the metal tag to counter gulk. But in the future someone dosent need any changes to gulk to counter him, then they obviously will counter him

    Well, they have taken a decision and I am not gonna dwell on it but tags can be updated as you have noted the example of Magik above.,

    That's very disappointing but I can't say I expected much. It's just two fights (he's on both my last 2 abyss paths) I thought I'd be able to have an interesting time using Magneto lol. Just wish there was some consistency in how you handle these changes. Also as @pseudosane mentioned, there is no way someone who doesn't check the forums to know this, and this could potentially cost someone loads of extra units trying to take on path 4 or 5 taking in what they naturally will assume to be a good counter.
