    The 'hotfix' for that hasn't dropped yet for Console, only for PC, so I can't confirm.  But I was afraid of that (patch not actually fixing this problem).       

     

    In your case, did they insta-kill poison proof, full health Captain(s)?    

     

    Better resubmit a ticket, again.....

    Hey William - I talked to one of the designers about this and he said the issue was fixed but that there are a couple ways it could still appear as if Spiders are insta-killing. Namely that a Captain could become overwhelmed by spiders so that - even if he's immunie or resistant to poison - all of the cumulative damage from the bites would enough to quickly kill him. Especially on Brutal difficulty. The spider bites could quickly down a Captain even without the poison damage.

     

    Is it possible that's what's going on? I believe something's happening, I'm just trying to figure out if it's still a bug or not.

     

    Thanks!

    Yeah - each spider does a little bit of bite damge so lots of spiders - the bite damage can add up. At least that's what Design tells us. :)

    No offence, but that sounds like a little bit of an excuse/butt coverage for not fixing this problem.   That being said, the hotfix itself hasn't been released yet for Consoles, so I can't confirm/deny this is still happening (or reduced frequency thereof).    Regardless, based on the feedback from those on PC who have installed the patch, my approach to Spiders in terms of being on the Assault end won't change.   Seeing that they can still kill poison-proof, full health Captains, I will be taking them on individually without my Captains being exposed to them.    Assaulting with at least one Spider Summoner in your Force will continue, as they can instant kill numerous and any defending Captains quickly and without putting themselves in harm's way.
