    I have stopped using the block-intercept technique ... this is the new reality ... easier to accept it, than banging head against a wall

    Yes I agree i had to change my gameplay entirely because of this “bug”. However, not being able to attack block/dashback/intercept has diminished tremendously the effectiveness of some champs e.g magik and og vision, that rely a lot on this technique in order to used them effectively in competitive AW.

    We need the game team to come forward and confirm if this is an intentional change on the AI or if its a bug. If its a bug, when it will be fixed. If its not going to be fixed, what compensation will be issued?

    Magik has gone from god tier AW attacker to a bench warmer in my roster. This is unacceptable and needs to be addressed as it creates a dangerous precedent.

    Got a 4>5 mystic gem that I was planning on using on magik ....

    You now CANT intercept after punching into block as the A.i has had its dash attack sped up 🤬

    I wish Kabam would stop tweaking things that didn’t need playing with 👎🏼

    Any update ? @Kabam Miike or any Mods ?

    That is true ... it is also very challenging when you are facing a 3 minute timer .. because the alternative is to find windows of attack by predicting AI dash which takes far more time than backdraft ... so your overall DPS drops

    It's been a while since I used the forums, because I was busy with my last chap in act 5 and I had to quit because the Ultron didn't let medusa do her work..that is the backdraft intercept still hasn't been fixed i mean this costed me around 500 units will I get compensated for this kabam?
    Or the kabam mods are going to ignore this and this case will never be answered?

    the hot fix didn't fix anything the game crashes randomly the backdraft intercept is missed up and the Ai can follow you right after you ending your combo with no recovery time in between and hit you i think all of this comes from one side ( they buffed the AI speed silently) Sentinel can still recover fast after his sp1 it's a 50% chance now

    This was not fixed with the last patch. Can we get some reassurance that this is still being looked into? The AI changes over the last two months have made playing a less than enjoyable experience. Been playing 3.5 years and gameplay is easily as bad as it's been since 12.0.

    Thank you

    Just wanted to let you know that this still isn't working the way it was 6 weeks ago. Thanks.

    Needs to be fixed and acknowledged and I will keep this thread alive as long as it takes

    I also agree.. intercepting used to be so much easier b4... I thought it was just me until I seen this sub thread

    can't express how frustrating this issue is. what adds to the disappointment is how we feel like we're being left in the dark on this as well.

    There was a time when mods would regularly update the community, at least once a fortnight, on what was being done regarding bugs. Seems like that practice has stopped. That is only for the worse of the game and the community.
  • Hey there everyone, in order for us to look into this further, we'll need some information from everyone who says they're experiencing this. Could those who are please answer the following question about what you saw:

    -What Champion were you using? If multiple, which ones specifically?
    -What Champion were you fighting? If multiple, which ones specifically?
    -What game mode were you in? Please include map or difficulty level where needed.
    -What Device were you on?
    -What version of your OS were you using?

    Thanks for responding. To be honest, it happens everywhere with just about every champ. Your best chance of being able to accomplish a dash back intercept is when using a longer dash back champ like Darkhawk. I notice it much more consistently failing when using a shorter dash back champ like Dr Voodoo. The issue also seems to be worse when you have the enemy against the wall. just try using DV in Epic difficulty. hit into block and try to dash back intercept. id say at least 60% of the time the enemy will be on top of you before your dashback animations are finished. AI recovery time seems much faster than it was 2 months ago.

    Thanks

    Thanks for responding.

    I encourage everyone to make as comprehensive a list as possible. My personal experience is that this is affecting just about every single champ barring a few exceptions. I will be making a detailed post and continuously updating the match ups as I test them out.

    This is a good opportunity for us to finally get the game team to recognise this bug and solve it.

    It’s happening with every champ in every game mode ...

    I’m using the same phone I used to record the video above where it wasn’t happening 👆🏻

    My connection is fine, both WiFi and mobile

    Let’s not fool about ... THIS IS HAPPENING BECAUSE YOU HAVE MADE THE A.I FASTER AT YOUR END !!!!!

    Nothing to do with our devices, the fact that this is only just getting addressed is a joke 😡

    That costed me so many revives vs uncollectes thanos. I thought I suck but its a bug that you cant backdraft intercept. I thought I was going crazy
  • jnikolas92jnikolas92 Posts: 53
    This is the best answer I can come up with
    We used to be able to ML into a blocking opponent, dash back for a window to intercept.

    This does not work with any champion, vs any opponent, in every game mode.

    Game mode- everywhere
    Champions- everyone
    Game mode pretty much everywhere, but I could occasionally pull it off in arena
    Device- iPhone 7
    iOS 12.1 most up to date Mcoc version (23.1 I think)
    Issue occurs when dashing back after hitting the block and either dashing in or throwing a light and the ai always hits me back

    -What Champion were you using? If multiple, which ones specifically? answered together with -What Champion were you fighting? If multiple, which ones specifically?

    Non-exhaustively but what I have found:

    - OG Vision against Blade, Morningstar, Corvus, Omega Red, Quake, War Machine, Hulk, Hawkeye, Deadpool X-force, Ultron, OG Vision,
    - Blade against Dormammu, Quake, Corvus, Morningstar, Winter Soldier, Medusa, War Machine, Luke Cage, Magik, Mephisto, Hulk, Juggernaut, Scarlet Witch,
    - Magik against Dormammu, Magik, Corvus, Juggernaut, Magneto

    Will continue to add as I test out more interactions. But what most others above are saying is correct. It seems to be virtually exhaustive of every single champ, in every match up, in every game mode. It used to be universally possible to do backdraft in this manner, now it is universally impossible.


    -What game mode were you in? Please include map or difficulty level where needed.


    - AW - Expert and Challenger map
    - AQ - Map 6 and Map 7
    - Questing - Variant 2, Act 6.1, Monthly uncollected event
    - Arena - 4* and 5* arenas

    Could we please get an official answer on this? Players deserve to know. Has this issue been officially declared an intended change to the AI and game mechanics? Is kabam going to invest time solving this? It has yet to be added to the known bugs, so I’m assuming its being considered as intended, but the community deserve to know the official stance from kabam on this. Please give us an answer so we can move forward and close this once and for all.
