New Iron man too Overpowered

Looks like this new iron man is going to be a BS aw defender. His sig ability auto-block is unpredictable and it can trigger parry. Add this to the fact that he can autoblock for days gain power and is virtually invincible when below 15% will make him almost unbeatable at a miniboss node (specially kinetic reactor one)

    @the_unknown My bad there....i wanted to say that the autoblock parry seems too OP as AW defender

    Kabam really trying to profit on Aw at the moment. Releasing new characters with autoblock that can parry you. There’s no skill that comes from it, 100% chance to parry you if he has one stack of armour which if you wait out the armour he has a 1 in 4 chance to trigger anyway. That’s like if spidey stunned you every time he evaded, and we all know how often it seems like he evades.

    Just watch Kabam start releasing more champions with true strike, so they can make money off people trying desperately to counter autoblock.

    Isn't it 4 stacks when he gets the chance to auto-block? which is manageable.

    The only issue I see is with sig ability, which gives him 8 instantly.

    So with his sig it gives him 8 instantly, which auto blocks and gives him power. I just wait for those to expire, but after they do expire when he’s under 15% and gets even one stack of armour he autoblocks anyway

    So this is from Seatin’s stream. You see Iron man with 1 stack of armour here

    And this is when the hit connects, iron man actually uses his special anyway, but regardless you can see that he autoblocks with 1 armour stack

    Here’s the video if you want to check around the 20 minute mark.

    Only solution I see is either make it not trigger parry,or "When struck twice"

    @BitterSteel Yea his sig seems problematic. But it seems like a bug. He should only auto-block with 4 stacks of armor.. :S

    If you take a look at the sig ability then I’m afraid it’s not a bug. It says while under the effects of AN armour effect has a 100% chance to autoblock all attacks without consuming the armour. It only needs 1 armour to infinitely autoblock parry you while the armour is up. It’s a ridiculous ability.

    Scratch that , you are are right

    When a D Lister can be God tier
    Then why not a A Lister be

    I think that the game has finally jumped the shark, escalating arms race of abilities and triggers is spiraling ...

    Wait till they throw him up as an Uncollected Boss next event (or Boss Rush sometime) AND put him on a node that has the parry ability.

    This is the third or fourth one from what I've seen

    Just use Iron Man IW against him, duh. Half of his hits can't be parried.

    He definitely seems way overpowered. There is no fun and very little should involved when he gets under 15%.
