    Beads item description update

    The description for beads needs an update. It does not provide immunity to all crowd control as it used to (back when the description was made).

    Currently several newer characters can continue to used crowd control on people who use beads. Baron Samedi's ultimate continues to exert a slow/gradual pull on cc-immune characters (although, they do not get pulled by the massive pull at the end of the ability). Interestingly, beads do protect against the very similar pull of Hades' ultimate. This does cause me to wonder if it is a description error or a bug in Baron's ultimate.

    King Arthur's ultimate demonstrates a similar anti-beads effect. When he ults someone into the air, beads have an oddly delayed effect. They do eventually release the player, but only after they take several more hits. Despite this, they do glow as though cc-immune for a about 1.5 seconds before they are freed from the ult. Contrasted with Cerberus' ult knock-up, where using beads allows the player to drop out of his ult instantly. Alternatively, when Ne Zha ults a player, they can use beads preempitively and not be knocked up, but once they are, they cannot use beads. King Arthur seems to break this system, as the player takes damage several times with their beads also going on cooldown. Once again, this could reflect an error in the beads description of claiming to bestow immunity to cc or it could be a bug in King Arthur's ult.

    With how beads interact with Baron Samedi and King Arthur's ults, the description should be edited to reflect that there are some cc's which it does not provide full immunity to. Perhaps re-titling it as extreme resistance to crowd control would be more accurate.

    And here I thought the game was just doing the typical "favor the other player" BS that Blizzard games tend to do or maybe someone was cheating.
