Is freezing time working as intended?

    • Is freezing time working as intended?

      I've been noticing this for some time...

      In many vids i see people using freeze time + meteor, and in most zvzs i take part too.

      At first it looked like they were timing precisely the meteor to fall on freeze time end..

      But now i see those people on freeze time taking damage from others skills before the meteor, while still frost in time.

      Or i see freeze time hiting and 2 seconds later the meteor falls and damage is done, like at 1:02 time mark from this video from NUMBER1BRIMSTONE:

      HOW I GOT 80+ KILLS IN TORRID


      In the same video we can also see that, at 1:10 time mark, a group of players under freeze time influence got also damaged by Piercing Arrow from a Bow user.

      The skill, aparently, is acting as if it is a 4s stun that can't be reduced by CC reduction or countered, since it's not possible to cast. (haven't tested if it is possible to Cleric Cowl or Mercenary Hood out of it, nor know anyone who tested it)

      According to the skill description, we have:

      "Freezes time for all enemies in a 5m radius for 4s.
      (ignoring crowd control resistance) Frozen enemies
      can't move or cast and are immune to all types of
      spells. Enemy players are also immune to damage
      ."

      So everyone under freeze time should have similar effect of "Zhonyas Hourglass" from league of legends, where the affected person becomes completely invulnerable for that duration, but can't do anything while at it.


      @Retroman, can we please have a confirmation regarding this issue, as it is being used a lot in ZvZs for quite some time now?

      I looked into it and this is actually a bug and will be fixed in the next patch. I also assumed they are just timing it right, but the immunity currently runs out before the stun. Thanks for pointing it out again.

      seriously?
      There is like 8 bug reports on this..

      This is known since months
      TLDR - to be "NUMBERONEBRIMMESTONEE" and get 80+ kills - just need to abuse a bug.

      Figures...
    • I didn't even know this existed LOL goodjob for catching this it definitely needs to be fixed. Although I don't think this will affect my claps in any way :)

      There's a known bug that I've experienced where people are able to use iceblock with cleric cowl during the time freeze and I think it needs to be addressed!
    • C'mon, everyone did know the bug.

      Just check bug forum on time freeze.

      There is tons of complains on this bug..

      It is bugged since the implementation of time freeze. There is even standard hg teams making millions and all knew that no timing was needed.. because it always worked

      I myself have complained and reported the bug 3(!) Times

      Great Arcane stuff Bug (Time freeze)

      Just as an example

      Several other people wrote a bug report

      And now all that used it say...God I am so surprised it always worked, needs to be fixed, I fully support this - ROFL Big timed-

      ROFL this Bug abusing & even video posting guy..

      Why would someone need iceblock you complain about if timefreeze works as intended?

      Timefreeze should basically give you iceblock..

      And if timefreeze works as intended your brimstone would never hit someone with iceblock

      If you get timefreeze, you simply spawn iceblock and you will never hit anyone at all
