Hi, just ran into this in AQ (map 3) ..

fighting against Gambit ... he throws a heavy, I dash back to evade it .. but get hit anyway ?

I used to be able to do a single dash back, then go back in with medium to attack afterwards ..

3 times in a row, I got hit by the heavy after dashing back ...

seems his heavy attack range was buffed ?

Anyone else noticed this yet ?

I'm on Android

(and if it matters, was using Wolverine)

    Maybe you were using a shallow dash back that doesn’t go back as far

    I have no idea what that means, or how to do it.

    I'm doing a dash back same as I've always done:

    Blocking. Wait for him to start a heavy.
    Dash back ... wait for heavy animation .. then dash back to attack.
    used to work fine, now he's hitting me every time.

    How do you do a "shallow" dash back vs a "normal" dash back ?

    Shallow dex.

    Miike said something that this Window to dex could be variable to some extend. Maybe you dex a Tiny bit too late. Maybe the reach or timer (length of heavy) has been modified (unintended) Cauz of the sp1 Bug?

    hmm, url doesn't work?

    but again, yeah, not sure, I really don't believe I'm doing anything different ... I'm not even triggering evade/dexterity ... just completely avoiding the heavy ...

    but where it never reached me before, it reaches now ... so something's changed .. for sure ..

    I've dodged his heavy so many times in the past, it's not something new to me ... or something i do "sometimes" .. it's something I've done 99% of the time ..

    now, it's 0% ... that's an awfully big swing .. ;)

    Sorry for the link, google for Dork lessons, Shallow evade. The vid about outsmarting MCOC part2 discribes it well.
    When you not trigger dex at the evade you DO shallow evades!

    Maybe Gambit is a testsubject to cease this abbilty from working.

    yeah, maybe, definitely has changed from my perspective, again .. wondering if anyone else has noticed it? can reproduce?

    Would be nice if Kabam chimed in .. was there any intentional change to gambit's heavy ?
