    Mods have commented on various threads today in general discussion and in the bug section, but this was ignored. Just let us know something. An update on when this will be fixed would be ideal. Under investigation for a month is bogus; it happens every time SW triggers power steal.

    A few people including kabam wolf have stated this is only bugged while taking damage. That was true for at least a year now that I know of. Since December I've watched my own videos and realized I wasn't seeing things. If I get a double crit and the second being the 4th hit in a combo (procing pd) then we both lose power. This isn't from taking damage so that team investigating this needs to better inform the public liasons

    Power STEAL and power DRAIN are different.

    Power STEAL is currently bugged.

    You are describing something completely different; Power Drain , which effects both players and is working as intended.

    The issue I am trying to highlight and have posted vids about is Power Steal. As shows by the vids on the first page, Scarlet Witch’s Power Steal “steals” her own power.

    Are we really going to have to wait until a February update for this to be fixed ? By then it will be 8 weeks ,2 months of a bugged ability.

    So it's taken 3 years to fix this? Because honestly ever since she was able to be duped when you power drain you lose power too randomly. So I don't see this as being a bug. She has always worked this way. But if Kabam wants to buff SW again by all means do so.

    There are plenty of other bugged champions that have been bugged for over a year now. Mordo parry.. rogue power copy.. and other things totally ignored by Kabam like Pure skill ( 4560 units wasted). I do hope more champions get fixed and useless expensive abilities do too.

    I thought it was my eyes playing tricks on me. I’m glad they’re working on it.

    That is NOT the issue. Power drain takes all energy from both fighters. Power STEAL is what is bugged. Did you even watch the videos?

    Yeah, she always power drains both on her hit. Thought it was part of their nerf when they killed Dr strange. 12 I believe

    Wow that was a bug? It's been so long that I thought it was intended and kabam just screwed up the wording like they always do.

    Really hadn't noticed this until I did my ROL run last night. Really don't notice it happens unless you're right at the limits of each special attack.

    We're going on 7 weeks now. Between this and Cap Marvel issues, it's just absurd.

    Still going on. Beautiful. How can she be bugged being such an older character?? Just wtf? Seriously? Can't get her code right STILL?? Just love dealing with this issue as well as not even being able to control my SW. Or any other character anymore.

    Almost every single fight I use switch in it's a gamble if her specials will fire by the time I hit the button as she drains both their power frequently, and this is mid combo while I'm attacking and not getting hit. I assumed it was by design, now I know differemt (she uses chaos magik, as her ability, so it seemed to fit as it is chaotic by nature). I love getting plastered after tapping the button and then realizing my power is gone...

    The amount of you who don't know the difference between power drain when receiving a hit and power steal while hitting the opponent is worrying.

    Seriously... and it derails the thread from the proper issue.

    I just had this happen to me a few minutes ago in the event quests, just another bug in a long list of them which are growing and growing by the minute and basically being ignored by kabam.
