Did the Unblockable SP1 node change?

This is what it used to say.

This is what it says now.

Does anyone know if this is a change to the node, or just a more in-depth description? I wanna say it hasn't changed because I'm pretty sure in the past I've evaded the beginning of unblockable SP's and blocked the rest, but my memory is a little hazy..

    It has changed

    The node did not change. The description was changed, in order to better reflect what happens

    Idk about the other thread or what was addressed but before you could evade the first part of an sp1 and block the rest. But now that’s not happening. So definitely it’s not just the description that has changed.

    You could evade the first part of the attack on an attack and block the rest on an attack that did not shoot things at you, or when the things that short at you were projectiles. You could not block, for example, cyclopes eye beam.

    I’ll use Green Goblin as example. On his sp1 before you could evade the lazer beam and block the rest until he throws that granade thing and evade that. With the description change we can’t do that anymore.

    @Smash Not true, i just tried act 5.4.6 which has green goblin on unblockable sp1 node on the bane/vitality path, it still works the same way as before where you can evade the first punch and block the lazer beams and also block the grenade as well should you choose to do so.

    Which champ were you fighting that you faced this problem? different champs have different parts of the special that you can and cannot block

    No sorry for the confusion but GG I haven’t tested yet. I was using him as an example. If the description and Lormif are right then we’re not supposed to be able to block any part of GG’s sp1 if he’s on unblockable sp1

    well no worries, i am here to inform you that nothing(as far as i know of) has changed about the way we would normally block certain parts of an opponents' special attack. It is simply impossible for the unblockable special description to describe every specific projectile that can or cannot be blocked. Like for winter soldier sp2, both the part you dodge and the part you block involve shooting bullets, there is no way for the description to distinguish the two haha.

    Thanks. That is good to know. I wonder why kabam changed the description tho? Why make a description so much longer and confusing while making absolutely no changes to the node? It feels like shortly they will “fix” the bug 😂

    I expect that they changed the way they discribe it is because there are coming nodes / Abilities that will be have more/other/ different way of unblockable

    How about classic Spidey S1?
    That used to be you can't block the web shots but can block the punches, is that still the same?

    Maybe I'm mistaken but I thought that was the opposite. I've fought classic Spidey on enhanced sp1 and blocked the web shots then dashed back to evade the punches.

    Yeah that's what I meant, my mistake.
    I always used to get him on unblockable S1 mini in war but I've got a different path now

    I found it super odd that I could evade the first part of a special in the intel quest, then eat the rest of the it while blocking.

    Off topic but it irks me that this kind of **** is only made well known when someone brings it up and also that if you aint on the forum you miss out.
