5* iceman

Why does a 5* iceman still take 5% special 3 damage if you hit the 20% reduction perfectly????? Shouldn't it only be 4%????

    That's not how it works
    You reduce the original damage you would take, say from 40% to 32%, and then Iceman's armour caps that damage at 5%

    Makes perfect sense. That 20% is a 5* SP3 game mechanic. The mechanic is placed first. So like they said above, maybe you drop from 40% damage to 32% damage.

    Now.....

    Iceman's Ice Armor takes over and says, "Wait! 32% is over 5%. We will reduce that 32% to 5%."

    if the damage I take from a SP3 is 5000 and with the mini game you reduce that damage by 20%= reduction of 1000.
    Iceman will then only take 5% damage from the 4000 being dealt= 400. The logic is sound. Not sure where you are confused at.

    He thought it worked the other way around, where the ice armour activated first and then damage from that could be reduced

    lol this is even more confusing and wrong. Ice armor won't take 5% of the damage. Ice armor means he'll take max 5% of his health

    The real math, is the minigame does the 20% reduction before damage calculation is done. Ice armor caps the damage done to you as its happening.

    If he has ice armor, then the opponent will do maximum 5% damage with an L3. There's no change to that 5% in any way using buffs or abilities.

    Also, note that this is the current ability, and it's working as intended. Maybe a few months from now Kabam will decide it's a bug and change it.
