Angela Sig Ability vs Gorr

It seems like angela‘s sig ability is reducing the base duration of gorrs debuffs, but the additional time from his sig ability still applies. Is this an intended interaction? It would seem to make sense that angela’s sig ability should reduce the debuff duration in its entirety instead is portioning it out

Her interaction is very niche and there's better champs out there that can do the same, shrug off debuffs, be immune or -100% AA, even though with limited kit.
1. Doesn't work on Peni's Autoblock (even though Angela's sig reads as Auto-block accuracy, and not a True accuracy type effect). It probably has to do with it being coded to be like a true strike instead of reducing the defender's ability accuracy.
2. Defenders and Nodes that remove buffs at the start of the fight remove all the buffs (despite Angela's sig implying the resistance to nullify). It probably has to do with it being coded like a stagger or something.
I have a running personal petition for unstated mechanics like this to be codified and explained to the community though. If you think this is weird, get into the whole ability power rate, armor break counts as nullify, nullify vs. neutralize and if the buff still triggers, or AAR debates.
Also, to @rockykoston Angela works well, and she's awesome. She reduces duration just like she's supposed to, and (as long as there isn't a nice like Bloodletting or Debilitate) can become functionally immune to damaging debuffs.
If you're on a node like Biohazard, the key is to go slow, and accept a little damage from your first debuff until you trigger a Regeneration buff. That'll further reduce your debuff duration, and you'll recover half the damage done.
I'm not completely sure how her abilities will interact to a flat increase in debuff duration, like Gorr. However, I do note that there's no upper limit specified in her kit: up to 35% debuff duration reduction per buff.
So if you can add additional buffs with synergies from Heimdall, or Prefights from Odin there's no reason she can't reduce the duration by more than 100%, to partly counter Debilitate.
I don't have an Odin to use much, but I keep a 4* Thor relic on my sig200 Angela, which means she starts the match with a permanent Fortitude buff. One critical hit to dupe her armour, and she's got -100% duration and Autoblock accuracy within 2 seconds of starting the fight.
