**KNOWN AW ISSUE**
Please be aware, there is a known issue with Saga badging when observing the AW map.
The team have found the source of the issue and will be updating with our next build.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
**KNOWN BG ISSUE**
We are aware of an issue with the seeding for the beginning of the BG season.
We are adding rewards to higher progression brackets to offset the additional grind.
More information here.
**Arcade is being extra tricky with his Murder Box...**
It appears Arcade has been non-cooperative in his approach to this month's side quest and presented his clues in a nonsensical order. Lucky you, Summoners, we have our best and brightest on the case and those clues should now be a lot more straightforward. While messing around in Arcade's files we came across a phrase, highlighted and bolded, with sparkles and pointy arrows: "the abode for the dead" ... Maybe that will help you along the way!

Nick Fury BG defense Exploit?

KC4lifeKC4life Posts: 23
edited September 2023 in General Discussion
I don't know if this is considered an exploit or not but whenever I put nick fury on defense people will take him down to 1% health and then pause the game so the timer can run out so they don't trigger his 2nd phase and regenerate all the health back and there attacker don't risk losing more hp is this an intentional thing develop by kabam or is it considered an expoilt or am I just stupid and making stuff up?

    It is exploit-y, but with a twist: there’s a distinct tradeoff with significant penalty—namely, that you get none of the time points for the fight awarded with a KO. I would also add that you can easily wind up with LMD and less time to finish Nick if you happen to mistime it.

    As far as I can tell, OP, you seem to be asking if this is the kind of exploit that you would get punished from Kabam for. This strategy / "exploit" falls within a way of using the game entirely with its intended functionality: there is a pause button in BGs, so you are not in any way breaking rules within the game. So Kabam would not punish you for this, as opposed to the way they would punish an exploit of the game such as the 1250 full crystals that were supposed to be 1250 shards (I know there is debate on how that "punishment" was handled...)

    Idk about exploit but that's clearly a skill issue

    Using Silk with a relic and the extra stun time hack in Incursions is also an "exploit", but I don't see anyone complaining about it. Or using Ronan, or Maw in specific nodes. They are "cheese" there, the NF thing is an exploit?

    call it whatever you want but also remember the opponent will be getting no points for the time duration. so if they don't wanna deal with NF 2nd life but they will be missing out on time duration too.

    It is an exploit. It's not the way the pause button or fighting NF was intended. I don't see what they can do about it though.

    While it is an allowed strategy, pausing is unsportsmanlike and goes against the very spirit of competition

    I never pause game, but there are lots of times when I know I'm not going to be able to get through the second life fast enough for whatever reason, so I just slow down and try to end the fight as close to the bottom of his first and hope for the best. I don't believe this is unsportsmanlike in any way. We don't know, and have no way to determine, if the opponent paused to get that result or simply slow played the fight to get that result.

    We should separate the issue of pausing the game, which I think most people believe to be generally unsportsmanlike, with understanding the scoring rules and how Nick works and deciding not to chance throwing him into his second life, which I believe is a reasonable tactical option.

    As said, this is not cheating and some of us intentionally place Nick on defense so opponents will do this and gain zero time bonus.

    I agree with that and didn't mean to imply everyone who doesn't push fury to his second life is pausing.

    Pausing to do that is what I believe is wrong. Doing it without pausing comes with risks and can be hard if the AI is uncooperative but is a viable strategy

    I don't think there was a paused on Nick since the fight time was 117s. The pause time would refect a shorter time shown. I think the other played didn't have time to finish off Nick's second life so they made a decision to just kill off the first life as much as possible. If it's in the game for 11 season now, I don't see the issue with the pause button. If they don't want for us to use it they should remove it.

    I love appeals to “sportsmanship” and “fairness.” They often reveal a lot about motivations.

    It’s been a long time since the timer indicated a pause. 117s would show the clock ran out, whether it was from pausing or not.

    The object is to win so if it's allow and helps you win, is it wrong. Just look at sports in real life, why does a power 5 college football or basketball play a non conference cupcake schedule, cause they want an easy win. Why do pitchers pitch aroudn the other teams best hitter. Why does the top team in the playoffs always face against the worst team that makes the playoffs. Is that sportsmanship or fair? I would say no but that's life.

    Only in the fight summary will it show if someone paused, the time will look normal on that screen shown to us.

    Pausing is for low skill cowards. That simple. Sure it’s allowed, but if you do it you admit you probably shouldn’t be playing BGs.

    Yeah that was a really sad patch, Kabam said they were gonna address it, then just hid it to brush it under the rug to receive less complaints. At least that’s how it feels it went down considering how frequent this topic used to come up when it was painfully obvious someone was a pause wanker

    But we do have a way @DNA3000 . While not foolproof, the fight stats show gameplay time excluding pause time

    If your opponent does it maximum he can get is just 45k points. Take your time and finish your fight with full health.. you win..
