Seeing the initial notes on the Ice-Man buff were shown by Rich The Man, and though his damage improvements look good (not amazing), the fact that he's Nova Flame immue is probably the main reason why I'd take him to R3 considering he's the only one to have that immunity and it can be a roadblock for HT in BGs. Hopefully they still ramp up the damage but so far I'm not mad at the buff. Also he's now finally Coldsnap immune which was one of the longest running sad jokes in game... made of ice... weakness is ice....
It's better to increase the damage on his kit, even nerf on synergies.
(He should have been cold snap immune anyway so I don’t consider that a buff)
His damage is still average by himself and he’s supposed to be op mutant
They could have at-least give him guaranteed crits then or something
Nothing's as sad as Phoenix though.
Torch is immune to coldsnap & frostbite so Iceman won't be useful against him as an attacker
All this does is preventing Human Torch from countering Iceman on defense
They probably wanted to increase his defensive value for BGs through this immunity
If that's true then it wouldn't make sense for other champs to have it except some other variants of Human Torch
Higher sigs for higher crit rate & frostbite duration
May be slightly reduce the numbers for the sake of "balancing" with about +900 crit rate at sig 200 instead of +1200
I have seen those CCP videos & even with this change he wouldn't be a "broken" champ
The only thing that doesn't make me angry is the fact that they specifically mentioned how this was supposed to be just a slight update, so they were telling us from the get go to keep the bar low.
6 immunities sounds great ! let me see bleed, poison, incinerate, nova flames, and coldsnap.
Now lets compare him to Absorbing Man. He is immune to Bleed, shock, incinerate, coldsnap, frostbite, armor break, armor shattered. and though not an immunity but has an amazing 9000 energy or physical resistance. Total count : 7
Thing, immune to bleed, shock, armor break, armor shattered, nullify, stagger, fate seal effects. Total count: 7
Emma Frost, immune to stuns, bleed, poison, incinerate, shock, frostbite, coldsnap, fatigue, concussion, exhaustion effects. Total count: 10
Woww, Emma Frost still the Queen of immunities.
