Boost Banner/not Boosted Hulk [Fixed in 11/21 Patch]

There’s a glitch (hopefully) where the boosted Banner in the Sakaar event transforms into an Un-boosted Hulk.  Any chance of fixing that before the end of the event???

    Lol. On a weekend? Someone's got jokes.

    And I'm pretty disappointed by this. Today I just spent half a million iso leveling Banner for this event. I feel like an idiot for not spending it on other characters.

    So disappointed. I was excited for banner to be boost cause I never use my champed level 463 one cause well he's weak sauce. But boosted 90 levels should be fun, except once he transforms he's at the un boosted values: 26k health 9k aoe. 

    Smh

    Sorry, i know this sucks for some. But that's hilarious and not at all surprisng.  Demi doesn't often playtest (or seemingly even understand) 5* play.    Good to know that the gamd treats hulk as a totally diffierent character for boost purposes on the back end.  I wonder if this is true for oml, phoenix, and c&d.

    Phoenix... maybe. But I doubt it. Hulk doesn't just switch power sets, he switches match damage and health totals as well. And name.

    So somehow Banner is actually a stronger character than The Hulk? That's an awesome power. To transform from human to a weaker big green guy.

    Not just weaker.  Significantly weaker.

    Well, he comes back with the 80K health and can still lay out nasty attack tiles.  But you definitely don’t need to worry about the Hulk’s active green AOE.

    Update: The designers are now fixing this, but unfortunately the fix won't be able to be implemented until Tuesday's daily patch. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    Brigby, that's awesome to see the devs fixing Banner. While they're at it, see if you could, maybe just maybe, make him suck a little less. Wouldn't take much. I believe the term is "nuke and pave."

    Bummer. This character didn't need even more bad PR.

    to fix all they need to do is let the automatic matches gain ap... i mean they let a 4 * in grocket do it, why cant a 5 *,   or option 2,  not allow thanos to kick in when hulk is downed, only banner..

    Just wondering, was this actually fixed by that patch? As far as I recall, Hulk was still not boosted.

    I don't think the update ever made it in.  As it was, we were only going to get a day of the intended boost before the event end, so maybe someone decided it was too late in the event to tweak any behaviors.

    This is still not fixed.

    Confirmed this is still not fixed.

    There is an additional bug: After finishing a match while transformed, Bruce Banner is KO'd on the character-select screen and needs to be revived even though he won the previous match in Hulk form.
