    Technically it's whoever invented the combo that gets to decide the name (this was decided by the Official MPQ Forum Convocation of 2014), but in this case I don't know if we can figure that out. I suppose it'll just be whatever name ends up getting used the most.

    Why don't we just call it Kang FU with the F U standing for something or other...

    Was this meant for the "supports in PvE" thread? This is the "stealth Gorgon buff" thread.

    Yes, it was! Deleted!

    By the way, I’ve been calling this team, the “blue man group“, that’s even the name I have for them in my saved teams, lol.

    And yes, my IM40 with the blue tinted armor costume is the one that is equipped with SP//DR.

    I believe we have a winner, folks!

    Lol... didn't realize you could rename saved teams. Sure enough, there is a pencil icon there.

    Bosses are immune to stun and airborne too, though. They also tend to show up by themselves, and Gorgon tends to show up in a team.

    Anyway this is definitely not a big deal, it's just kind of weird. I was wondering if it was part of some overall nerf to the autowin Kang team -- sounds like it's not.

    (Completely unrelated, but Kang/Hawkeye/IM40 needs a team name, and if it's something lazy like KangHawkMan I will be extraordinarily disappointed in the community (again)).

    Not all bosses. Gorgon can be stunned and sent airborne. I believe Ultron cannot be stunned but sent airborne. Like most things in this game, I wish there was some consistency. I understand the 1:1 battles but Gorgon and Ultron aren't really bosses in most of the events they are in

    Also, IMKangEye

    Mod mode off

    Thematically Ultron should not be able to be sent airborne or stunned. I don't know enough about Gorgon as a character to know what might fit there. But I'd suggest all "x v 1" fights should have done sort of conditions.

    I think it should be Blue Man Group, but I just thought of "EyeM4Kang Broken"...

    Ultron was in a 3v3 battle tried to send all 3 away and couldn't send ultron

    Yes, sorry, that was two points.

    1) Ultron should not be able to be sent away, airborne or stunned (thematic)
    2) None of the 1s in the x vs 1 (ie boss events, Kaecilius, Cap/IM in Lost in Time) should either (gamesmanship).

    Yeah so Gorgon in a 3 vs 3 should absolutely be away-able.

    Unique non-playable tile-moving characters can't be sent away, from what I saw in reddit. Gorgon falls under this. Sentries don't because there can be three Sentry Fighters in a 3v3.

    At this moment in time, isn't Gorgon the only unique non-playable tile-moving character?

    Kaelicius as well. And the Ultron boss if you consider it to be a variant of ultron, also Ultrons sentries.

    Yeah that explanation makes as much sense as anything they've said trying to hand wave away inconsistencies.
    So tile-movers except ultron guys, 1 on 1 fights except they probably missed some in PVE.

    Apart from the fact we still have no official info here, but I'm not expecting that anytime soon.

    Just ask yourself these two questions:

    1) Can the player use or roster this character? We have variant Phoenix, Ironman etc, but we can't use them.
    2) Can there be mutiple "copies" of this character in pick-3?

    If the answer is no to both, then the character can't be sent away.

    In Hound's head, obviously.
