The AI keeps launching specials mid 5 hit combo

I wouldn't have a fundamental issue with this mechanic is WE could do this on offense!

I'm fairly certain I could accomplish this mechanic using a game controller, but I'm going to need to see a youtube video on different device holding techniques from people who can replicate this mechanic on the attack.

I started noticing this mechanic when I started using OR seriously. In my admitted ham fisted way of playing OR, you push the defender against the wall and hold them there with 3-4 hit combos into their block to build and keep the spores on the defender. On longer fights, there have been many times the AI is able to launch a special somehow.

It's frustrating. One second, I'm hitting into a block. The next second, I whiff a hit during the start of the defender's special and then get combo'ed into oblivion.

Anyone else experiencing this?

    5 hit or 5 block? If you mean you are hitting into block you can do it as well if they are hitting into your block.

    Not really, ghost is phased during those blocks. He is not making contact.

    who said anything about that... Dont put words into my mouth..

    I watched it to the last 3 seconds and now see what you are talking about with kingpin, a time to start viewing would be helpful, most people are not going to sit through an entire video to look for one event.

    Yeah that last 3 seconds. Happens on a regular basis. Especially if you’re trying to create some distance or feed some power to push over a bar.
