**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!

Since the buff. iceman is now nova flame immune. and all the coldsnap immune champions are not able to do DOT or gain power . so how can you do iceman without losing HP in this meta?
only sassy?

    You have to hope they’re running willpower. And this only works if your warlock is awakened

    How would Longshot work (as a LS novice)

    They can gain power. Hulking from spaceshift charges, longshot from bad karma, hyp has power gain

    Longshot doesnt work since iceman is both incinerate and bleed immune

    my question is not just getting the fight done but also no taking coldsnap damage. seem like only sassy and ghost are best option.

    Scorp can also end with full health if you play it pretty slow

    Iceman is easy. He is not shock neither rupture immune. So Shuri will work, Nebula will not work cause she has no DOT on her base hits, Tigra, Rintrah, Wolf will all work. Also Ghost (phase will gain power), Hyperion, Dragon Man, Hulkling. See i just listed a bunch. So yeah Iceman is not an OP defender.

    He is OP in the sense that all the champs you mentioned arent immune to coldsnap so they take tons of damage before killing him

    since they changed points system. killing with higher hp is more important than faster.
    btw, nebula can inflict shock with her heavy or holding block and parry

    Irrelevant. For each Bad Karma on the opponent, you gain 12% of the power they gain from being struck (so up to 60%). If you parry heavy and give them enough Bad Karma, you'll still be able to throw specials.

    I know how he works, he is just not a good Iceman counter

    Why is no-one mentioning Omega Sentinel? A high sig one, especially, takes little damage from the coldsnap and she inflicts plasma which iceman isn't immune to

    Best counters (meaning resistant/immune to/shrugs off cold snap) are Sassy and Ghost. I guess technically you could use awakened Mephisto but it won’t be a great or fun fight.

    No one has mentioned Adam, but if you use the pod instantly, he’s been working great against iceman

    You can use a rupture or shock champs as he’s not immune to those.

    Omega sentinel, especially high, sig works great with energy resistance and plasma debuffs.

    Hold the phone, did you just really disrespect Nebula like that? The nerve of some people.



    Literally just parry to place shock.
