According to the tool tip for Force Barrier:
Quote:
Projects a Force Barrier around you, granting immunity to *all* control, damage, and negative effects while channeled. This ability does not respect the global cooldown and can be used while controlled.
However, the Electronet does not allow for the use of the Force Barrier and automatically puts it on cooldown when you attempt to use. Note the asterisk around all. It is specific, meaning not some, or most, it means ALL control measures.

I want to know why this has not been fixed since it is most certainly a bug as it does not follow what the tool tip states.

No other CC, stun, slow, or control measures do this, why does Electronet not respect Force Barrier's ability. Conversely, when will the developers fix this?

They'll probably just change the tooltip.

I'd love to be wrong though.

working as intended. Mercs are already at a disadvantage so BW finally gave them something to at least irritate others:P

If they tell me that is the case, "working as intended." Then I am done with this game and this godawful company and their illicit business practices.

Lol. Read the tooltip on electronet. Players can't use "escape" abilities. Force Barrier effectively removes you from combat. Therefore, you can't use it.

Reading is pro.

Wouldn't surprise me either way frankly. Both are meant to overrride normal events and surprise surprise they don't play together.

The key words you are missing are "while channeled".. electronet is preventing you from activating the channeling, thus it's working as intended...
