fighting domino question

RKO_meRKO_me Posts: 104
Quick question: when fighting domino, I know that you have to fight her like you fight yondu, as in, you need distance because you can only parry her medium attack. Using this strategy, can a parry fail due to domino's abilities? If that's the case, wouldn't the best way to fight domino be to still get distance, but after she throws her medium attack, go in with a light attack? Thanks for the help.

    I really suck at fighting her, so some good advice would be helpful :)

    You can parry her light

    No you can't. It's a projectile. NEXT!

    Yes, parry can fail. What you are describing is the standard way of fighting domino: baiting out a medium, then attacking during the pause.

    Yes, she’s got a 15% chance to avoid your ability to success.
    And in my experience 15% for Kabam is close to 90% for normal statistic.

    I’d like to tell you this “funny” thing that happened to me last week abiut Kabam’s 15% AAR:
    I was running a duel to prepare myself for the Domino I was about to face in AW, so it is Ghost against Domino. I swipe back at the start of the fight in order to trigger phasing (100% - 15% = 85%). Result: no phasing, critical failure, 5 hits combo in the face.
    After that “unlucky” figh I go for the AW Domino. Guess what? Fight starts, swipe back, no phasing, critical failure. At least I was lucky that she didn’t hit me, but that’s how 15% AAR works.

    Punishing her mediums is my strat, no matter what the node. Also, you can punish by using medium, doesn't have to be light

    I find that baiting her heavies is the most effective method. That and her easily evadable sp2.

    @simolaz That's not how 15% aar works...? How's that supposed to make sense? That could happen 10/10 times and you still wouldn't have any rational reason to doubt the 15%.
    This is almost as stupid as people opening 15 5* basics to analyze the drop rate for "god tier" champs.

    Edit: I seemingly misread "that's how 15% aar works" as "that's not how 15% aar works", but the first part of your comment still makes me wonder about your actual point.

    And I also assume that nobody thought you to laugh sometimes, mr. Iamsmarterthanyou...

    @UmbertoDelRio never heard about Murphy’s law?
  • UmbertoDelRioUmbertoDelRio Posts: 2,583 ★★★★★
    @simolaz So your comment was meant to be a joke? Didn't really look that way.

    And what exactly does murphys law have to do with this? Mentioning schroedingers cat would have been equally substantial, when talking stochastic, but at least it would have been somewhat scientific.

    Nevermind, it seems like you’re that kind of guy who likes to argue with whatever people say, and arguing about how probability works wasn’t certainly my point. I just wanted to tell my funny recent story about Domino’s 15% AAR, because that was the topic of this post.
    I understand it wasn’t funny for you, and I accept it. I am sorry for that. Now I guess we can move on.
