Sabretooth no longer bypasses mordo evade!!

I was working on 5.3.4 today and had sabre with KM synergy as I was fighting mordo I was not able to parry and attack because he evaded and countered!! I thought it was just act of will that they were fixing..is there more that he doesnt bypass or just a bug??

    Clearly you weren't around when they put the same smackdown on Drax.

    Just tested it. It's not a direct nerf to the synergy; however, it no longer allows you to attack within the .7s window. Therefore, Mordo is able to do his astral evade.

    It seems to be another frame rate "fix" aka a silent nerf. The BS continues to pour from the walls.

    Video evidence:

    Yep. Once they got away with it with Drax it opened the door to hide behind "enhancement/fix/description needs to be updated"

    Technically Sabretooth should’ve never been able to do that since Mordo is immune to ability accuracy reduction.

    Not fully true, PM is able to counter him fully because her parry gives her ability accuracy reduction

    Has anyone tested her against it? I'm assuming the frame rate fix will extend to her as well.

    Assuming Astral evade is a defensive ability, Proxima shouldn't be working against him ...

    Are you sure? Because she only reduces ability accuracy while blocking. When she starts to attack I don’t think it applies anymore. I could be wrong though.

    Mordo is immune to PASSIVE Ability Accuracy Reduction effects.

    This is where we get into what is passive vs active.

    Blocking

    Opponent’s have 200% Offensive Ability Accuracy reduction when Proxima Midnight blocks an attack. Additionally, she can use the Parry Mastery against any basic attack, stunning opponents even if their attack is projectile based.

    PM doesn't say if her AAR is active or passive.

    It's passive. She doesn't reduce it with a buff or a debuff (aka, active abilities).
    But her blocking ability only works with offensive abilities, not defensive abilities.
  • Nobody should be able to reduce Mordo's Ability Accuracy, and that should include Sabretooth. This was definitely a bug that was fixed, and I think it was due to the improvements made to the consistency of Abilities triggering.

    As for Proxima, I'm not sure, but I'll get that checked out too.
