weakening of the best bots

weakened the most beloved IronHide back to their high critical rate in their specials and heavy attacks, they also did this with the most beloved bots among the players, this could be a shot in Kabam's own foot, you really did not need to do that.

    What makes you say that? I haven't noticed any difference in my Ironhide at all

    What do you mean by "weaken" and then "back to high crit rate"?

    Yeah, what they said! My Ironhide is a frickin beast!

    And what do you mean with "the most beloved bots"? Who is that about?

    And why is the original post more like something I'd see on Facebook--those teaser comments that begs people to ask 'why' and 'what', instead of just coming right out with a clear post? Normally, I wouldn't respond to something like this as Kabam seems to do a good job of admitting when they are nerfing something, but if bots are being nerfed, I'd like to know more. And if Ironhide can get 'nerfed' with an even higher crit rate, I'm all for that!

    hmm, I just used IH's S1 and was surprised by how little the damage and crit damage was, seems off. The final crit hit was less than a normal heavy atk.

    Well, crap! Maybe its part of the update! Is there anywhere we can go to see what changes were made with this (and any others) update?

    Who did you use it on? In arena? If so, blame the lack of damage on masteries. All of IH damage is based off critical hits. Masteries not only lower Crit rate, but also crit damage, base damage, energy resistance, and add armor.

    All these things affect IH attacks across the board.

  • Hey All,

    We have not made any changes to Ironhide, and don't make changes to Bots or content without letting you guys know. Now, there could have been a number of reasons that you might notice less damage from Ironhide, be it Masteries, or other Bots abilities? Who did you notice this against? Was it Optimus Primal? I ask because he is the newest addition to the Fight, and is the star of the current Spotlight Mission.

    Optimus Primal has a special Critical Hit Armor Buff that you can see in fights against him. That Yellow Armor prevents Critical Hits against him. This means that if you activate Ironhide's Special Attack, and it activates his Signature Ability, he will not take extra damage from the Attack.

    Been using my IH over last few days and same as always. I've experienced no changes to him whatsoever.

    Its a couple days since my last comment and I've been paying attention to my Ironhide play and haven't noticed any reduction in damage, crits or whatever--he's still more beast mode than any of the maximals! Lol!
