At stage 1 of Kraken, I picked up a speed boost and fed until I could evolve.
After evolving to stage 2, I noticed that my armor was not going up no matter how much I fed. I got into a loooooong fight with some hunters and thought I should’ve died. I came out of the fight with… 100% HP according to my display.
I evolved to stage 3 and immediately started another fight with everyone alive again. I didn’t get anymore armor and again, long fight, but won easy. I mentioned this on reddit and was told its just a HUD bug, but half way through that match I felt I should’ve died so I don’t know if its just a display issue?
