Anyone else throwing unwanted specials when trying to block?

Seems like this has been happening since the past update and don't know if it's a device specific issue (iPhone X)or if others are seeing it too. Now it seems like the left side sensitivity is all whacked out and I'm throwing off specials are horribly inopportune times and getting wrecked as a result. Anyone else seeing this happen? Happens with multiple champs in every game mode.

    I guess it's not just me since I just had this brought to my attention. Why the sudden change? It's cost me hundreds of units worth of items in AQ and Variant because my champs aren't acting as they have for 4 years now. Will this be fixed?

    I'm on an android and there have been times when I dash back and try to lock and end up launching an sp, ultimately getting me pummeled

    Mine like to toss random heavy attacks and stop attacking mid combo to just stand there like a punching bag lol

    I think that's more an issue of tapping too fast so the AI thinks of two quick taps as one held heavy attack. This one they literally moved the special trigger up a tiny bit on the screen and it caused chaos when we are hard wired from tapping the same spots for years now

    Literally just cost me a Magik in Variant. Was fighting AoN Hyperion and was in the power lock cycle but accidentally shot off an SP1 before getting back to SP2 and it was window enough for him to get his powergain back and destroy me.

    I've blown a lot of units due to champs dying as a result of this. I'm sure there will be no acknowledgment or compensation.

    I noticed this too...so annoying. I thought the specials button used to be a little further to the left and never had this happen before.

    Yeah I honestly don't know what code error caused this change but it needs to be fixed ASAP

    What the heck Kabam. This is a seriously unwanted, un-needed and unnecessary change! Why would you do this? It blows my mind. I can dig back years of forum posts and find ZERO people saying: Oh wow, you know what would be great, if only the special button is moved up higher, that would really change my experience... NO ONE! So why do it? Of all the things you could change, why change the stuff that no one ever complains about?!

    Not really sure we can confirm if it's an intentional change or not but something needs to be done about it

    It's an undeniable design change that really needs to be acknowledged and fixed

    The placement of the special buttons was moved slightly but it will be moved back in our next update. Sorry for the confusion here. If there are any updates we'll post in the existing thread here.
