Special 3 Bugs April Update

becauseicantbecauseicant Posts: 300 ★★★
Two bugs I've noticed with special 3's after the update:

1. If you launch a special 3 right after doing a medium attack your champion will immediately throw a medium attack after the special animation ends without you doing an input.

2. Holding block during the enemies special 3 doesn't register and results in your champion standing there not blocking after the animation finishes. Used to be able to buffer the block input during the animation.

    Hmm....item 1 appears to have happened to me with sym supreme in AW yesterday but I thought it was me.

    I’ve noticed M hit isn’t registering when activating a Specials 1 or 2 from a combo. Special attack interrupts M hit, which causes a delay and the special attack is blocked more than half the time.

    Number 1 - champion dashes in with Medium attack straight after performing special 3 - keeps happening to me. Special 3s are unusable at the moment in high end quest content as you’ll just eat an intercept and get KO’d as soon as your special ends.

    There have been some terrible, buggy releases in the past but this one is a real disgrace. Easily one of the worst releases in history. Kabam you should be ashamed if you claim that this release was tested first.

    Can a mod please acknowledge the Special 3 issues and ensure this bug gets fixed as a high priority? Most importantly the one causing champions to dash at the opponent with a Medium attack uncontrollably as soon as the special 3 animation ends.

    Happening all the time for me with Ghost Rider. Harder content is unplayable whilst this issue exists.

    Mods can you acknowledge you're aware of this bug please? thank you.

    Yes, please fix this. If our champ automatically charges the opponent after a special 3, the opponent intercepts and destroys us. What if we were in the middle of AQ or AW. We would have to unnecessarily be forced to use resources we normally wouldn't ever use.

    Any update on the the SP3 Bugs? Wasn't in the latest hotfix but hope it's next in line to be fixed.

    Why are no mods acknowledging this bug in the bugs list? This is a huge issue in the playability of the game.

    Happens for me every time when triggering a special 3 following a MLLLM combo.

    Update please @Kabam Miike @Kabam Lyra

    I just got wrecked in AQ map5 vs NC mini. Using Wolvie. Had power at L3 for regen. Got to full health, decided to use my special. Dead. Dashed right into a 5 hit combo.

    Also many of the last hits of my combos (MLLLM) would miss

    I just block after the s3 rather than doing above, seems like a cheapskate way of blocking. I used hypes s3 several times and haven't seen him medium after it at all. I always parry the opponent manually after his s3. Maybe play with skills?

    More and more posts are coming out about this. Maybe don’t respond without looking into it more.
  • Having the same issue - specifically with Hyperion - he launches a medium attack immediately after the Special 3 animation is over regardless of inputs (including blocking, swiping backward, or entering no input) before, during or immediately after launching the special 3. Please fix this as I am unable to reliably use my Hyperion.

    Any info on this @Kabam Miike ?

    Seriously @Kabam Miike , this is a major problem. I use Morningstar a lot, and HAVE to use SP3 with her to build up souls. This happens almost every time I do it. She immediately throws a medium for no reason after the sp3, and I often get intercepted

    Everyday in AQ, That Hyperion KO me, cos after his SP3, he gets free 5hit combo
    Kinda feeling frustrated at him

    Just got smashed by hyperion in war as a result of this bug. First fight, he hit me with sp3 and I held block when the animation was coming to an end. Block didnt register and he 5 hit comboed.

    Second fight I learned my lesson and just madly started swiping back. The response was still laggy but I was able to at least get out of the way.

    War season starts in 2 days. This really needs to be addressed before that. Thoughts? @Kabam Miike

    Same thing is happening to me with Hyperion. After an L3, I'm either standing right in front of the opponent or I'm lunging towards him. It's totally messed up.
