Killed in one hit with Force Armor?

  • Killed in one hit with Force Armor? Nico

    Why is it that Fallen Maniacs can kill me flat from 23k hp to zero when I have Energy Armor with Force Armor rune up? Is that even possible or did my Energy Armor decay without me realizing?

  • Assuming you didn't let Energy Armor decay, it's likely due to the Force Armor hotfix -

    Amount of damage absorbed from a single attack will now cap at 100% of a player’s maximum Life.

    Though this is poorly worded, this basically means that while Force Armor will trigger on any hit larger than 35% of your health pool, it won't absorb more than 100% of your life in damage - for example, with your 23,000 life, if you were to take a hit for 60,000 damage, Force Armor will attempt to reduce it to 35% of your total life - 8,050 damage. However, since it's not able to absorb more than 100% of your life, it can't reduce it below 37,000 total damage, thus killing you in one shot.

  • In Bloons TD Battles, you have the option to purchase energy potions which increase your energy by a certain amount, depending on the package you buy. My question is, is this change permanent? For example, if you buy the large energy potion, will your max energy increase by 50, or will it just give you 50 energy and then go back to normal once you have used all of your energy?

  • Is it possible to get the "Q-Force Champion" trophy (for completing the game on hard) during a challenge mode play-through? I completed the game on medium difficulty, and it gave me the trophies "Q-Force Cadet" (complete game on casual) and "Q-Force Hero" (complete game on medium). Next I set the difficulty to hard and started a challenge mode play-through. When I finished I got the "Glutton for Punishment" trophy (complete game on challenge mode), but I didn't get "Q-Force Champion" (complete game on hard). Was there a bug or can you only get the difficulty trophies on a non-challenge play
