I'm confused, didn't the devs say that melee attacks don't work on Revenge anymore? Just got knocked to sleep by a cent punch after activating my Revenge..

The cent punch going through revenge activation specifically was mentioned as a known bug that's to hopefully be addressed in the next patch :/ Otherwise, kicks and other melee attacks bounce off as they should if you're activating revenge or in the middle of an attack animation yourself.

The 1.11 update should make you mostly immune to melee attacks with Revenge. Here's the specific patch notes on it:

Revenge State Update

Revenge Activation is now immune to Melee Attacks.
While in Revenge, Attacks won’t be interrupted by Melee attacks.
While in Revenge, Melee Attacks* no longer Unbalance.
While in Revenge, Shield Boost has been increased from 50 to 70.

Developer comments: With the recent changes to Revenge earn rates, we also wanted to rework how powerful Revenge State should be. An important aspect of the rebalancing of Revenge State is the role of Melee. Melee is currently very strong in Revenge State, but also very strong against it. It could be very difficult to deal with getting unbalanced over and over by a Warlord/Valkyrie/Conqueror who is in Revenge – and being in Revenge also seemed very weak when surrounded by Centurions who Kicked. It also created a split between characters with and without Melee attacks. While in Revenge, we want you to have more opportunity to attack, and while attacking to be less vulnerable to Melee attacks. We expect to see group fights be less reliant on having someone to spam Headbutt/Shield Bash/Kick. We’ve also updated some bot behaviors accordingly.
*Known issue: Centurion’s Jab post Heavy Finisher still unbalances, it will be fixed in a future update.
