UPDATE: A new Hotfix (v32.2.3) is now being released to address this issue. Please keep an eye on your App Store for this update to address the below issue.

We are currently experiencing an Error when Summoners view a Champion’s Synergies while in the Champion Selection screen in Arenas and Duels. We are aware of this issue and are working on a Hotfix to address it. In the meantime, please avoid using the synergy menu to prevent this error and crash. We apologize for this inconvenience.

Another true focus post...

So imo you should remove true focus and just add like a no evade node, just for quake. Both ghost and quake are hard to play and quake is much better than ghost, so only she needs to be shut down. Ghost should still have some time to shine, and what about all the other miss champs like stryfe tigra Kitty pride etc.
P.S this post has definitely not been made bc I just pulled a 5* ghost after 3 years-

    They both require skill, I just learned to use Ghost and still not very good, Quake, I just can’t, I’m skilled too, but can’t use her effectively, she’s sitting at r4 I have a Ghost r5 and sitting at r1, for the aforementioned.

    Even that shuts down other evade champions besides quake. It would have to be more specific to quake, something like "when the attacker charges a heavy the defender gains a true strike buff, this ability cannot be altered by ability accuracy reduction"

    Or, just create nodes called Un-Quake-Able and Un-Ghost-Able.

    We already have champion specific nodes benefitting champions. Just create some that are against Quake and Ghost.

    That is exactly the same in principle, but idk why it worries me. The thought of a node directed at one specified champion is concerning. Who knows when "Dr Doom gains -100% ability accuracy in this fight" node comes out.

    I get that it doesn't actually make a difference but calling out a specific champion to make unusable seems like a slippery slope to me
    In essence, that's what they're trying to do anyway. The description you gave was basically a euphemism for what I said. I don't think it's good for the game if Kabam goes out of their way to nerf good champions, while adversely affecting other champions, but unless they decide to give up the idea and let Quake and Ghost be, I don't see any other way to allow other champions to retain their usability.

    As I said, I am fully aware my description was the same as yours. But the wording on yours is dangerous. Having it worded like that gives the impression that kabam are just able to say "this champion does not work here" and get away with it just fine because it was "okay with ghost and quake"

    Lol I don't know Mr.N's abilities at all. Yeah youd have to make sure it only affected quake, or at least only drastically affected quake.

    Yeah he evades by charging heavy, when he came out I thought wow that’s so cool he evades exactly like quake!

    Now I think, ugh, that’s so bad he evades exactly quake

    In my defense, I was half joking, but what you're saying makes sense. Any other way the True Focus issue could be alleviated?

    Oh that sucks. I can't believe I'm saying that being like quake sucks. What a world, eh.

    Also you quoted me before my edit and exposed my bad grammar :/
  • R1s02R1s02 Posts: 260 ★★
    Also I have quake as a 5* too, and I was finna do spidey UUDD w her just to practice. So I have an opinion on both. Quakr should be shut down, but not ghost. Cmon man 3 years of opening and hunting only to be smacked by a true focus node.

    Nice pull. Ghost is still VERY helpful for exploring permanent content (such as act 6/7 and variants) but Kabam should just add an overpowered tag or something. That makes the most sense.

    actually, since they have the champion restriction ability in champion select for each quest, they could easily "ban" certain "cheese" champs for "SELECT" content .. from time to time ..

    ie Ghost, Quake, Ronan, Namor .. etc.

    Depending on the targets, the nodes, whatever .. if they feel a certain champ will "cheese it" too easily, they could just simply ban that champion during champ select .. easy ..

    Make it clear .. be up front and honest about it .. and not this underhanded, sneaky "oh we'll just add this node here" kinda **** . :pensive:

    Just a troll post. Go easy on OP, Lol
    Congrats on the ghost.. she still wrecks.
  • IcePickIcePick Posts: 184
    I play ghost without any synergies and she is still a top 5 champ If you know how to user her. With synergies she is so much better than Corvus, Hyperion, NF etc that it’s embarrassing - almost like she was the daughter of the kabam CEO

    Quake is broken and always has been. She does weak damage and has no immunities, but can beat 99 percent of the games content easily - just in the most boring way possible.

    It makes sense they would want to make new content to counter these 2 champs. But why tigra? Why spider morales? These 2 are useless without that mechanic and aren’t cheat codes with it
