Human Torch’s pre-fight ability did not activate after consuming a charge.

I activated Human Torch’s pre-fight ability in AQ map 7 and it did not place nova flames instead of incinerates. Maybe it had something to do with the screen refresh afterwards but will do further testing later in the quest.
Can you please tell us who you were up against and what node buffs were active?
Maybe because korg is made of rocks and rocks can put out fires, idk

This is getting ridiculous. It’s been months since his release and this has been reported quite a few times. It has never worked consistently in aq or aw.
The following are all AQ map 7 and include fights against Korg, Moonknight and Thing. I use HT’s pre-fight ability consuming the persistent charge without the benefit.

Here is another video from of map 7, what is interesting is that the match starts HT does not gain his pre-fight ability and activates his signature ability giving him another persistent charge.
Node buffs: Empowered Immunity, Oscillate, Champion Boost, Health
He fill roles you may be lacking. Incinerate/coldsnap immunity, non-bleed damage over time, energy based damage, heal mitigation/elimination.
His awakened ability isn’t needed so much but is good to have though isn’t very useful unless high sig level; kinda fills a dual purpose of prestige and usefulness when it’s maxed. He was my back up plan to Thing which is why he got those resources from me.
1) He does energy damage and IMO is second to Havok; unless the champion you are fighting is buff reliant then Sym Supreme is a better option.
2) He has strong DOT potential that reduces healing and is not bleed based like most champs. His pre-fight ability makes him capable of taking on debuff immune nodes/champions while still taking advantage if that DOT.
3) He can work his way to anti-miss mechanics which right now not many champions have. But there are not many places you’ll need anti-miss.
4) His awakened ability is purely about regaining his pre-fight ability. He doesn’t need to be awakened so much, especially since his pre-fight ability is buggy which often renders it useless. Taking advantage of his pre-fight requires using him in multiple fights which can/will leave you fighting with low HP or using pots to be safe. But if you’re good at avoiding or not taking lots of damage and can then use him multiple times throughout a quest his awakened ability would be useful.
I try to use nova flame human torch ability (flame on before start fight).
But VOID is immune to this type of passive incinerate.
I think this is BUG
