Lack of Coherence

If they told us Drax's abilty to pass trought astral evade wan´t intended, weren't they suposed to fix it in all similar cases?
Try his first medium against wasp with her counter attack active... get your stuff straight up!

    Kinda sad they removed Draxs only usefulness in bypassing Mordos evade. Now hes just meh. I mean come-on, you had class disadvantage and a very defensive mordo against you, that was a fair traidoff, but noooo new champs that bypass Mordo completely had to come along

    It was not one of his abilities and was being caused by a frame issue. Additionally, it was inconsistent, and didn't worked all the time in every device. Clearly a bug, confirmed the week Mordo was released in the game.
    Are you saying this bug is happening against Wasp as well?

    You're mistaken about something. Drax's "ability" to avoid Mordo's astral evade wasn't an "ability." It was an artifact of his animations and the game timing. Drax wasn't and isn't the only champion for which this was true, he just happened to have the most reliable circumstance. They didn't "fix" this in the sense that they changed the game to make this impossible, they changed Drax's animations and/or the way the game engine executed it in a way that made this circumstance go away. But it is entirely possible that these kinds of effects still exist in the game, because they were never put in there deliberately in the first place and there's no universal way to get rid of them. It is also possible to change something completely unrelated and make this ability come back or go away, because it is based on timing that isn't perfectly fixed (static) in the game.

    @will-o-wisp that's right! @DNA3000 I know it wasn't intended, just asking why didn't they fixed it in all the similar situations?

    Since this is an interaction between Drax's animations and Mordo's - and any other character for which this issue arises, fixing it would involve analyzing Drax's animations verses all other champions to determine what the timing interaction is and then tweaking Drax's animations to eliminate the interaction, for every platform and all timing situations that could arise on those platforms. It is probably impractical to do this, and to repeat it every time the game engine changes in a way that might affect animation timings.

    OP, this whole game has become an incoherent mess. WTF are we doing

    Signed, person that loved drax pre drax killing evaders nerf, someone that spent far too much but is done with that, and end game player you would think netmarble would cater to. And mother of dragons and breaker of chains.

    It worked every time. Against ultron too. Looking at you act 5 ultron boss. Drax is how I beat him every time.

    It was an unintended side-effect of the frame rate, and didn't work all the time, across all devices. It was never a part of his intended design.
