Darker screen during opponents specials are mistimed [Title edited for clarity]

So when you or the opponent uses a special attack, the background goes a bit black. We all know that.

I have noticed it a few times with different champions that sometimes the "darking" is a bit late:

I don't know if others have experienced it or not, but it can throw you off in certain fight.

    It’s a bit off for some, sym supreme sp1 is hard to tell apart from his basic attacks sometimes

    I agree, this issue is getting real annoying.

    It always seems to me like he's doing a heavy and it messes me up sometimes

    We all know when special attacks are about to be launched, the background becomes darkened. But I noticed it is not like that with Captain Marvel (Brie Larson)'s sp1, haven't checked on her sp2 yet. The surrounding is dark only after the beam is shot and she is about to do a high jump.

    Most of the time, her sp1 catches me by surprise, especially when she's glowing. In addition, before she blasts, her two arms are so like she's gonna block. In event quest (I'm doing master difficulty), it costs me 3 or 4 full health champs. It's so hard to tell when she's gonna blast it in order to evade.

    So do you have any tips for that? Thanks :smile:

    Same thing happens for green goblin also, it's frustrating.

    My advice would be the following:

    Whenever she's able to throw her special, you want to get her to do that. "Bait and evade" isn't just about hitting the opponents block and then dash back when your visual cue kicks in, it is about ai manipulation and anticipation.

    Maybe try to get a feel for that? Can't really describe it as more than a feel, but so far I only got hit by her sp1 three times and I'm completely done with master and uc.
  • I never used the screen darkening to tell me when to evade, I just do it so I don't understand how you people fail to easily evade her sp1 without the screen darkening

    Exactly, you can tell she is throwing it from the twist in her body right before, learning the animations is better than relying on a trick of light that may not always be there

    All I do is start baiting whenever they have a bar of power, and if they rush me I might parry, or back off if they have 2 bars. Once u figure out the timing and what it looks like it’s not bad at all. Sort of like RS

    The screen darkens when they throw a special?? News to me.

    Watch her power bar when baiting, as soon as you see it go down it should give you enough time to dodge

    Hope this helps

    I only realized the screen darkens when someone recently pointed it out on a stream. I’m too focused on the enemy’s body movement tells.
  • Hey there, would those of you who are experiencing this be able to tell us which Champions and special attacks this happens against? Or if it happens in particular missions?

    Green Goblin definitely
