    Can someone explain to me how parry and dex accuracy can be reduced? Aren't these fundamentally skill-based abilities? Parry is a "well-timed block", either I get the timing right or I don't, there isn't some RNG factor that's also involved. Domino shouldn't be able to reduce the ability accuracy of the human player.

    I think parry itself remains in tact (ie you still get the reduced damage). She just affects whether or not the stun part of parry works and that’s where you get wrecked.

    Radio silence. Curious to see if we’ll hear anything before the champion goes live in 35 minutes...

    Domino is broke. She’s reducing AA ability accuracy. Her sig ability must be fixed. Almost everything in this game is RNG based. Therefore, she will do TONS of damage on a very large percentage of most champs except the ones no one wants to use.

    I remember the time Kabam was saying they wanted us to play every champion. Too bad they are now only releasing overpowered new characters and 90% of our roster is useless. The remaining 10% it will probably nerfed or... "FIXED".

    The one time I actually whaled out after 6 months of vowing to be f2p, I get jack. So... back to being f2p.

    You made no mention of her reducing AA’s ability accuracy @Kabam Miike

    Hey All,

    I want to drop in and let you all know that we have taken your feedback to the team. A couple things to remember here:

    Domino in our Event Quest is making use of a lot of Buffs. This is to make her a challenge in the Quest.
    The Damage from Domino's Sig Ability DOES NOT scale with Node Attack Buffs, and is based on her Base Attack stat.

    There are also Counters to Domino. Tech Champions in general are pretty good, because they're never "unlucky". Both Visions are great, as well as a lot of older Champions with fewer abilities. There are, of course, some exceptions, like Star-Lord, though any Champion that is constantly triggering her Signature ability is going to take less and less damage, as there are diminishing returns on her Sig Ability damage.

    @Kabam Miike Interesting that her sig ability doesn't scale with node attack buffs. That should make her a much more fair defender in Alliance War. This may be an obvious question but is Domino the first champion to have a damaging sig ability not interact with attack node buffs, or are there other champions whose damaging sig ability does not interact with attack node buffs as well?

    So maybe I'm missing something but if tech champs are never unlucky, why does the stun on parry fail while using a tech champ?

    All champs face a 15% AAR at the start of the fight. Unlucky just increases that by 35% (among other things).

    Add onto that Kabam logic, which states 15% is actually 80%, and you have your answer!

    I’m very confused. Why is Domino’s sig damage not affected by attack nodes, but Magik’s and Dorm’s abilities are?

    Also, please explain what you mean by her sig ability damage being subject to DR. Attack damage and ability accuracy have never been DR attributes.

    Yeah, that scaling is working great.

    Can't wait to see what she's like with AW nodes on her.

    I guess we should all just be grateful now that they put her as a boss on the first chapter. She wasn't as hard on uncollected as I was imagining her to be and I took her out with Sparky on first try.

    But I do not want to think of her in AW, thats for sure.

    EDIT: I do agree with everyone...she does need to be fixed.

    I have a tendency to get a little to negative on here because there's usually a lot that needs worked on. There's also a lot of good things going on too that I rarely comment on. Having not faced her in war or even with my top champs yet it's just speculation on how bad she will be in war. I was using my top champs elsewhere when doing EQ and Merc mission but but I've seen enough to be concerned. Not sure if she's working correctly because it will be very hard to tell either way. What we do know is that using almost all champs the up time for energy damage will be almost constant. Personally I wasn't worried about IMIW fighting him in EQ and we've seen how bad he can be. I suspect she'll be much worse. The best tech champs are horrible counters for her...so much for class advantage. She might be the best counter to herself but who knows at this point. If she becomes to problematic in war I'll rethink how badly I really want to play at a higher level and continue to spend. At least with IMIW you could change your playstyle and counter him. Here just showing up causes damage and no matter how you look at it, you're getting taken advantage of by Kabam. This is a cheap mechanic designed to generate more revenue. I'm pretty disappointed with Kabam here honestly, you had a chance to make simple champs useful and you passed.

    Are you guys going to add Vision Aou to the 5* crystals.

    You made the ‘best’ counter to this champ unavailable in 5-6* and Vision classic is worth upwards of $500. And is a limited time purchase.

    Ridiculous.

    Also can we get a full list of the ‘Abilities’ dominos luck counters.
    It would be nice to actually see what masteries, abilities, core mechanics, and just simple chance on hit things like crit are actually been affected.

    Thanks for the clarification. Could I request a little more clarity on what other champions might be considered counters to Domino? So far, the only champion I’ve heard is Vision, however Vision is not available as anything more than a 4 star for most players.

    So, could you name 3 more characters that you would consider good counters to Domino? I’m looking for champions that:

    Don’t proc any buffs or debuffs on regular attacks or special attacks
    Do a decent amount of damage so an AW fight on, say, arc overload node can be finished without timing out
    Are flexible enough to kill any mutant on any node in war, as most nodes hide the champ placed
    Are worth removing the assassin mastery for, as that mastery also seems to be triggering Domino’s sig ability
    Have a high enough health pool to last a full fight without parrying or evading

    This would help immensely in the planning of my roster. Thank you.

    They need to introduce Vision aou as a 5* and put him directly into the regular pool.
