Say it ain't so

Just discovered some pretty disappointing node design in map 7. We experimented with a section 1 path change in an effort to expedite clearing (multiple time zone battle group). Didn't go well. Long story short, we had an itemout in section 3 on the Gimme path as a result. That's the back story. Here's the discovery:

The itemout occurred on the Gimme OML. Which results in Gimme/300% stat boost sent to Phoenix and Void. I'm on wyim. So it fell to me to clear Phoenix...So, Phoenix already has Gimme as her local node. So I assumed either only the incoming 300% stat boost would apply (as the Gimme node is redundant) or possibly there would be two Spectre debuffs running simultaneously. False. Two Spectre debuffs are applied... and, they are perfectly offset from each other. So that instead of running simultaneously, the second one remains dormant until the first one goes on cool down and activates. It results in a perfect timer sync so that as soon as one enters cool down, the other reapplies. Resulting in a 100% Spectre uptime in addition to the 300% stat boost. Makes the fight virtually impossible. Please tell me this was not intended. As it's pretty mean spirited in my opinion.

    I'm sorry, but this is just a nasty design. Would the same thing happen with other nodes that have cool down timers as well? Like Brawl, theoretically.. if there was a local Brawl and an incoming Brawl, would they also be offset from each other to produce a defender who has 100% uptime on unstoppable?

    Once again, you got me there.
    You make no sense.
    It's just that nobody understands me. I want to get along well with the community, but I can't always understand what they mean. Was that so wrong?
    Only go along if you get the joke.
    I try to only go with it if I know the joke, and it hasn't failed me yet.

    @CGR2020 this the song they’re on about.

    My initial thought was this one though

    I could be biased but i think that after extensive analysis I win

    What about that guy who was trying to recruit people with 40k prestige?
  • MauledMauled Posts: 2,628 ★★★★★
    Tbf id like someone with 40k prestige in my alliance. It’d be like having LoL maestro on the boss node.

    All the Small Things came to my head too, but considering the former is literally called "Say it Ain't So".... well...
    Maybe, but I know which I’d rather listen to for 3 mins. And I had to google the Weser song tbh

    Yep, Weezer. Gotta love em. So I'm the only one here who didn't know that multiple nodes can apply in a staggered succession as opposed (one of them waits in queue for the other to finish at start up) to simultaneously?:) Has that always been the case?
