Concerning this issue, to prevent a discussion in this thread here:

This week is amazing and someone will say that's impossibru!!!11!, but we have 3 great fixes this week coming to Tribble
Yeah I love these fixes these so called great players that tend to disappear and reappear every few months are gonna vanish once again. Nerfing cryo pulsewave in some ways nerfs the operative kit user as well. God I love it!
Mechanic: Chain-knockback Issue: knockback effects can be chained back to back essentially indefinitely, resulting in a fight where one person is unable to take any actions from the first hit until he is dead. There is supposed to be a resistance to knockback that procs when you get knocked, but it doesn't work.
Suggested fix: Have knockback proc a 20 second immunity to knockback, the same way that stun procs a 20 second immunity to stun.
Saw him too yesterday. Even if he didn't accomplished to get me killed that way, i know what you are talking about. But a 20 seconds immunity is far too much! It would be sufficient to have a immunity for just a few seconds to get out of range a bit, or use Hypos.
I already have been able to use Hypos in the acutal situation and get out there alive.
Resistance to knock-back/down appears to be bugged at present. Before testing, I thought it might be the character I was playing (Omega armor + no willpower). Or maybe a melee knockdown doff, or a goofy KD tribble. After-all cryptic has a track record of adding content with little concern how it effects pvp.
So I switched to my engineer to test in a private match:
9 bars of willpower, full mk12 MACO + sure footed trait. Until recently, he could remain standing through almost anything: melee assaults, pulsewave blasts - seriously almost anything. He's gone from being knocked down 10% of the time to 100%. Chain knockdown wouldn't be a problem if resistance was triggering. Its almost like the defensive check was removed to limit lag during the anniversary event.
Edit: Adding some form of cc immunities will just reward players who neglect their current defensive options. What's available just needs to be examined and fixed, cause I'm pretty sure its broken
I think the pushback resistance is broken currently.. you can even see how it stacks up on you while someone melee's you.. its just not doing anything it seems. My guess is that it either got bugged 3? 4? patches ago or they stealth nerfed the resistance to make meleeing more viable.
Theres a couple bug reports on the forum already tho, someone even posted a video about playing ping pong with borg drones.
