Mirage Balance Update

edited August 27 in General Discussion
Commanders!

Starting August 29th, Mirage will be available as one of the Featured Bots for September! Before you have the opportunity to purchase him with your Bot Chips, we wanted to let you all know about an update to his Abilities.

Update:
- We’ve lowered the chance that Mirage will switch to Power Mode when hit.
- When hit by a Special Attack, Mirage has a 100% chance to switch to Power Mode and activate his Shield.
We’ve updated his K.E.R.S. Signature Ability!
- The timer for the respective buffs activated by his Special Attacks 1 and 2 will reset on each hit of the Special Attack. This means that Mirage gets the buff throughout the Special Attack, and the timer only really starts counting down after the last hit connects.
- For his Special Attack 3, the buff will active when the Special Attack starts, and the timer will not start counting down until the Special Attack animation is completely finished.

This update will be live tomorrow, August 28th!

    Seem like this will only make things more fun for folks who run 2.4.

    This is great news because it gives us hope the same buff timer correction can be applied to Thundercracker and Sideswipe's specials.

    Can you pass that onto the dev team @Kabam Miike ?

    Both bots really need it (and Sideswipe should really be able to purify shock damage on any heavy like the other bots on the roster with purify-on-heavy abilities). Having it only be on heavies that connect with the enemy seems inconsistent and almost like an unintended error.

    Awesome! I have him as a 5* and I already consider him one of the better Tech Bots around. Time to forge my 4* Mirage into my 5*, then buy another Duped 4* Mirage with my Bot Chips & upgrade like heck.

    True. Sadly, it's very true. His sp1 will last like forever
  • Then please inspect these too:

    - Ramjet special 2 is always missing if the last hit of a combo is a medium hit (dash/swipe attack) because the hit pushes back the enemy (same problem with Primal special 2 I think..)
    - Megatronus can interrupt Ramjet's unblockable heavy with his special.. I did a heavy, and in the middle of it Megatronus did a special 1 and Ramjet is stunned while he is in mid air..
    - After Ramjet's special 2 the enemy laying on the ground much longer than needed.
    - This buff timer problem affecting a lot of bots too (for example Tantrum's unstoppable is starting at the beggining of special 3 and the half of it burns down while the animation is going. I think Starscream's sp1 is affected too. I know he got 2 seconds more for it in the last big update pack but if the effect starts with the animation we are losing from the time that the description is saying while the animation goes)

    Keep up the good work guys 🤜🤛

    Really? That’s strange. I’m with you though... pretty sure it’s because of the Mirage balance update that this forum thread is about.

    Thanks Kabam for gradually update bots. Many bots you update makes them more fun to play and better. Let's see awhile when I use 5*Mirage would be better by this. My 4* Mirage in AM is stronger I can feel that.
