Sinister post SP3 unresponsive to heavy charging

Originally the bug was that following the SP3, Sinister (and actually every champion) was doing some dash medium following the SP3, so Kabam attempted a fix

The fix caused no heavy attack to be activated for 1.5 seconds or so following the SP3 animation.

Sinister relies on his ability to charge his heavy to pause the debuff. Prior to the sp3, you inflict a parry/stun on the opponent, activate the sp3 after contact from releasing the heavy, and charge a heavy coming out of the sp3 to extend the parry/stun and maximize the soul leech.

Now, after the update Sinister is unresponsive to charging the heavy after the sp3 animation and just stands there.

Please investigate and fix the issue

Thanks again

  • Please pass to game team:

    This problem occurs on all champions exiting SP3 animation

    If the opponent (defender) is in a parry/stunned state and the debuff is still on them when they exit the SP3 animation then the attacker is unresponsive to a heavy control/charge.

    If the opponent (defender) is NOT in a parry/stunned state and there is no parry/stun debuff then the attacker CAN heavy attack/charge.

    The debuff exiting the SP3 causes the attacker to not be able to charge a heavy

    In the case of Sinister, it is critical that he can do this.
  • Hey there, we'll pass your report on to the rest of the team. Would you be able to tell us what device and version of your OS you were using at the time?

    I can confirm. I don't use Mr. Sinister but other champs are unresponsive after coming out of an SP3. At least they don't dash in but I guess this is separate issue since you closed the other thread down.

  • Hey there, would anyone who has experienced this happen to have any video of this occurring? Also, for those who have experienced this with other Champions, could you please tell us which Champions specifically? Having specifics can be helpful for the investigation.

    I’ve sent video in with the ticket, where should I post the video? Will here suffice?

    Also, it’s him being unresponsive. I don’t know how else to explain it. The video will just have him standing there while I try to effect a heavy charge.
  • If you have a video, please upload it to YouTube and post the link here. Thanks!

    This is so obvious and 100% reproducable in any game mode with any level of Mr Sinister. Can’t you just test it? This is so lame.
  • Ok, I’ll get it done today.


  • Here’s a link to Sinister not responding to heavy charging after SP3

    Thanks for trying to fix this. It literally ruins him the way he is now.
  • We didn’t get any feedback if that video was enough.

    When there is no stun/parry debuff, you CAN charge a heavy coming out of the SP3

    But it’s a moot point without the stun
  • Here’s an older video that shows Sinister charging a heavy coming out of Sp3 while opponent stunned

  • I know this isn’t a priority (this and other bugs) like fixing 6.2 is because you’re losing attention there, but some of us need our champs to work the way they’re intended so we can begin 6.2 and other content. Is there any update on the progress of the bug fixes (in the 23.0 bug update there is no update since May 28)?
