Hulk Rage (at not being boosted correctly) [Investigating]

ZeroKarmaZeroKarma Posts: 513 Critical Contributor
I’m guessing this has been posted before, but we now have the chance to see a boosted Banner tearing up PvE. That’s as long as he doesn’t turn green.

5* Bruce Banner has suffered as being one of the worst 5* ever made. I had hoped that he might get a little buff during the Thor: Ragnarok promotion. But, alas, there was nothing and he is still awful.

At least even the worst 5* have an event in the sun where they are boosted 100 levels and can stomp around gleefully over their underscaled opponents.

Banner should be no exception, and his match damage is great UNLESS HE TRANSFORMS. How ridiculous that Bruce Banner is stronger than the Hulk when he’s boosted. Does that make any sense whatsoever? Is it so hard to fix things so the levels match?

This is really adding insult to injury for one of Marvel’s iconic superheroes

    As I know this will be a shock to a lot of people, lol not really since people asked and warned for this to be looked at before everybody left the office, but Banner is boosted just not Hulk.  So.....the weakest 5* there is (ok maybe Doc Ock), one that has been requested to get a buff massively and is ignored and can't get his boosted levels right. This was the same for Sakaar Arena and was reported.  Was hoping this would be fixed this time.  Merry Christmas.

    There simply wasn't enough time to fix him, OJSP.
    It's only been what, two months?

    This whole Christmas has highlighted that they only care about stuff that hurts them.

    If anyone was actually expecting a different result, then you should look up the definition of insanity at some point.

    In seriousness, it’s completely expected that this wasn’t addressed, and that it’s happening while they’re out of the office.

    Maybe you’ll get 50hp as an “oops” but probably nothing since it impacts everyone.  Just keep matching your cd tile to keep the damage bump.

    Except that they’ll continue to spend.  None of the bugs or technical issues stop the spending.  Some of the biggest spenders don’t even bother with pve, so this won’t impact their play or spending.

    If I could spend $1000s on this game I sure wouldn’t waste my time fighting Dark Avengers for the 3001st Time.

    Thanks for the warning rocket!

    I noticed he was boosted and excited to see him, then he transformed and lost all of his boost!

    So when Banner transforms, his Hulk form actually becomes weaker??

    banner was the 5* essential? didn't even notice him there. i played it 4 times too...
  • LifeofAgonyLifeofAgony Posts: 688 Critical Contributor
    This bug was discovered when sakaar arena was run and banner was boosted;  when he becomes hulk, it’s back down to his usual level which is useless, especially in CL9 against lvl 515 toons.

    However, as banner is at the very bottom of the 5* tier, people didn’t yell loudly enough for this to get any attention, and to no ones surprise, it has not been addressed.  So for a new release, the boosted 5* becomes marginalized as you need to avoid collecting green/match away cd tile when created else you’re stuck with the unboosted banner.  And unboosted banner is about as useful as a screen door on a submarine.

    Yes. Banner and Hulk are two separates characters at some level in the game. The transformation mechanics is  a band•aid™ ... the separateness has to be papered over.

    They keep failing to anticipate its effects, much less correct them.
    Then we should eventually get a HULK featured event,  right?

    I guess Bruce Banner really is the Strongest Avenger ;)

    Well last I checked green isn't one of Banner's colours (pre transformation) so if you want to make the best use of his match damage you'll be concentrating on Purple/Blue/Black anyway.

    But this still sucks - having very recently champed Banner I was looking forward to playing around with him a little more than that.
