KM animations on S2 and not being able to land it succesfully

Hey all, not sure if this is a bug or not but for the life of me I can’t seem to successfully land KM’s s2 if trying to throw it directly after a combo! Think I’m running at about a 30% strike rate after playing with him for about 2 months now and am almost at the point of abandoning trying it all together and either using spam S1 or trying to bait out a medium for intercept...
Just wondering if other people are having the same difficulties as I am? His animation seems to allow the AI a slight window to block/parry as it doesn’t seem to make contact until he is on the way down.. has this always been the case? Haven’t had this problem with anyone else on my roster so if anyone could shed some light on the situation or help me a little would be much appreciated.

    You're not supposed to use it after a combo.

    I agree. Sometimes it happens. Luckily, not all the times. Depeding on the difficulty of the level you are playing and the A.I. against you.

    I generally launch it after a parry or intercept

    I've been using a mlllm combo into his l2 and I've never been blocked...

    It never connects.
    I started using it after a 2 or 3 hit combo or right after a parry
  • I find if you do it after a Light hit, it's always blocked.

    After a medium it's blocked about 75% of the time... It's really annoying to be honest and has left me leaving him out of my team. It's been like this for about 2-3 months now.

    Device I use is a Samsung S9 with most recent update.
  • That's odd, I've had it blocked a couple times while using killmonger, but 98% of the time, I land that sp2 after a 5 combo with no problem

    What’s odd is the AI seems to be able to land theirs from across the screen and you guys can’t.

    Ive had it happen in war against medusa boss multiple times and its really annoying.

    I always just do 2-3 hit combo before using it now to make sure it lands but even then she still some how blocks it...

    Lol trust me I’ve had the same thoughts! I’ll be trying the Mlllm combo from now on because I promise you, my 6* KM barely if ever lands it after throwing a mllll. Like I said it’s the only champ I’ve ever had this problem with. Thanks for the help everyone, glad to know there are people in the same boat as me.

    KM’s the only one I’ve ever had the issue with, the timing is all off. Seems to be his animation, I’m lucky mine is 6* and I’m only in tiers 7-9 so generally because he’s bulky enough it doesn’t cost me to much in AW. Doesn’t mean it’s not super annoying though

    I’ll try this, if you have the time can you try it after an Mllll and give some feedback?

    Just do the sp in the middle of the combo

    If you use a special attack during a combo it's pretty much a guaranteed hit. Throwing one after a combo doesn't guaranteed a hit
