I think it's nice that new skills are being released but I wish I could find descriptions of them somewhere Sad

So, could anyone tell me what Backstab does please?
I have a theory that it counters Iron Wall but that's just a guess.

No one knows as it was disable for the GA. We probably won't find out until fanta updates their rules page or another Arena comes by.

I'm guessing when it procs it attacks the farthest unit rather than closest evading any IWs.

2. backstab
So called "friends" will act like they really like you, be friendly with you. And then goes out and make up lies to your girlfriend that you're seeing someone else and that he has been covering for you for the whole time. This makes your girlfriend seem confused and think you do not take your relationship seriously.
When we found out what that backstabbing prick did, we encircled him and beat the living sense out of him. Now he cannot talk and cause any harm to anyone.

i would have pasted #5 but its wildly inappropriate.

LMAO!

My wild guess about backstab is that it hits the unit that is placed at the very back(or maybe anything not at the front) ignoring the tank that you put up at the front at full power.

Theory #1:
It changes the attack animation so that your unit appears to attack from the back.

Theory #2:
Your unit's sprite faces the wrong way and attacks backwards.

Theory #3:
Unit backstabs you and attacks one of your other units.

-------------

But in all seriousness, if it's a "attack back row" or anything similar... that sounds useless.
Units don't die in 1 hit. So unless you're going multiple back stabbers, and you get multiple procs you're not actually going to kill that big AA gun at the back.

Which actually works against you when you're spreading your damage out so now their tank lasts even longer because you're not focus firing on it.

I wonder if this might have any use against Iron Wall.

Maybe he randomly stabs attacking enemies in the back when they attack other units? IDK

What I'm afraid is the unit 'backstabbing' his own friendly unit. And you'd really want to have the unit with backstab skill on your enemy lines rather than yours. That is why you can see a lot of people trying so hard to get rid of Closer. LOL Very Happy

Just kidding I am. As clueless as you all are.

My bet would be a chance to inflict partial damage (say 20% of total damage on 6*, 25% on 7*) whenever the opponent's units attack.

What do you guys think of this idea?

the * value of a unit increases the proc rate of a skill, not the damage. I also think that your description matches what critical strike skill is
