**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!

Who is the better Mystic champ specifically in BGs?

PolygonPolygon Posts: 3,956 ★★★★★
I’m aware that most will vote Doom on the overall just because of how strong his power control is, but I just feel like he’s too slow for BGs except for niche matchups (and even regarding that, Absorbing Man can take on a boat load more matchups, not just cosmic champs but champs like Korg plus champs where his high physical resistance can mitigate damage (attuma/KM?). He just feels more of a “generalist” champ than Doom where Youll have the shorter fight time.

Doom is probably the better defender in BGs though

    Doom
    Whenever I use abs on offence I tend to time out even with light intercepting, idk if I’m using him wrong. I tend to use doom more on offence and abs man more on defence when the immunities are needed

    For this meta tho, abs man is the answer

    I feel like if the AI wasn’t suddenly so passive when you used Abs Man, that more people would appreciate them. Nothing worse than going for back to back light intercept attempts only to find the AI is turtling up

    Abs is faster in specific fights like against Iceman, Wiccan, etc

    Absorbing Man
    I love doom and think he’s top mystic, but I don’t think he’s been the most amazing for battlegrounds. I’d rather use most other top mystics over him (Kushala, Hood, Chavez, Abs, Tigra, Juggs, and Werewolf). All faster options that I’ve found to be better than doom for battlegrounds

    Doom is busted as BGs attacker this season.
    Also highly underrated Korg counter in general (not this meta).
    Both Abs Man and Doom are good attackers (maybe Abs slightly better), but from my experience at least, Doom is more effective as defender.

    It does depend on what rank your champ is and what rank the defender is but you might be using him wrong i always cancel my heavy into specials for a lot of extra dmg
