Why is it still a thing

  1. I haven't played clans in more than 18 months, but im pretty sure that Illusion is removed from it.

    So, if it is removed from clans, why is it still in the regular champions games

  2. As you probably already know, illusion has some serious exploitable bugs that come with it. These issues pose serious and severe issues when gameplay comes about. The reason it has been removed from Clans is because Clans is a gamemode that doesn't end, Clans goes on until resets that are months apart from each other whilst a game of Champions is a max of 20 minutes. The punishment for exploiting the illusion bugs are a few hours to a few days depending on how many times you've broken severity 1 gameplay offences before, this is the same with Clans blacklists. So the punishment is worth it if you're abusing the bug to steal legends or rare weapons or armour, and because it's not a client-related cheat, it has a very short punishment time.

    Because of this, the Clans team decided to remove most bugged abilities or abilities deemed too powerful for clans, from the game which includes but not limited to, Overcharge, Smoke Bomb and Shield Smash. With illusion gone from Clans, it gives the developers time to work on it and doesn't introduce detrimental metas to Clans which would cause unfair gameplay.

    As to why it hasn't been removed from Champions, Champions games are a max of 20 minutes in length, which gives the person using the illusion bugs very little time to do anything with it. Whilst yes, they can still turn games with it and cause unfair gameplay to their team, it's much more contained and not as detrimental to gameplay (losing legendary or rare items semi-permanently). In that case, a simple bug exploiting ban would do the person fine as the punishment stacking would help to get them off the network for long enough for them to possibly consider what they did was wrong. Champions is also not controlled by Clans Management who removed illusion from Clans initially. Champions is controlled by the developers (and at a stretch GI) so it'd have to be their decision to remove it too.

    tl;dr It isn't as damaging to gameplay as it is in Clans. It's still a cool ability and people still like to play it properly so it's not really best to outright remove it.

  3. I haven't seen a single person that didn't abuse its ability to get 2-3 free hits while invisible.
    And the not as damaging to the game reason is kinda stupid to me.

  4. There's a lot of abilities removed from clans that remain in normal champions. Clans is a subgame of Champions, not the other way around. You shouldn't expect things removed from Clans to be removed in champions.
