Cannot dash back to avoid heavy attack

Since Doom has been introduced into the game, I’ve noticed in several other fights with different champs that my movement occasionally gets locked when a heavy attack is initiated by the defender and I’m trying to dash back.

This is impossible to capture on video, or I’d submit one.

I’ve been clipped by more heavy attacks in the last few weeks than I have in the last year, and thought I’d bring it up so you could add it to the end of the massive list of bugs that will probably never get fixed.

    This problem is real. It’s still happening and it’d be nice to get some kind of response from an admin.

    You can really notice it vs Deadpool boss in Variant 4.

    Are yall just talking about doom? If you have any shocks, and he starts heavy near you, you suffer short stun before he hits.

    Is there a reason I'm not getting a reply of any kind on this?

    This just happened to me against Mr. Sinister in the Epic Squirrel Quest.

    He loaded a heavy, I swiped back TWICE and was clearly locked there, and then the heavy hit me.

    Why was this changed?
  • Do you happen to have any video of what you're seeing or anywhere where it happens consistently?

    I’ve noticed this occur sometimes for Thing sp2. Backing up sometimes does nothing as his sp2 glides across the screen regardless of how far back I dex.

    I suppose the next time I take the war boss Thing, I’ll record it for you. But I’m not sure it will be as helpful as showing other visual bugs.

    If you would've read my first post, you would've seen this.

    Since I'm using an iPad, I cannot record finger inputs, so all a video would show is me standing there and getting hit by a heavy attack.

    Do you actually need to see that to investigate further?

    Rather than input being locked, its more accurate to say that the game lags quite abit while certain characters use their heavy, causing the game to not register your input at the usual time that it should. Ice experienced this on silver surfer and mysterio.

    This is so true. I've also experienced this time abs time again. Either the heavy locks you into place so you eat it to the face..or you're able to dash back and for some reason the heavy attack reaches farther than before. So much inconsistency in the gameplay.
    Oh my god yes. This is so true. Some heavys reach the entire screen (at least thats what it feels like)
    Its like they become mr fantastic.

    The last fight this happend was aegon vs colossuss in LOL. His heavys came flying all over the place.

    Can this issue be addressed or can we get an explanation as to why this fun and interactive feature was introduced into game mechanics?

    I'm rarely in this section of the forums, and I hate to be someone that complains about stuff, but this has definitely happened to me. it's incredibly confusing and frustrating. I don't regularly record fights, if at all, and I haven't noticed any pattern in terms of champs. I noticed someone mentioned thing sp2 and I've also had issues with that, as well as torch sp2. Im 99% sure it isn't me because most days I can easily outrange it with my dashes, but other times, it'll be like they jump across the screen and I can't dash fast enough. it only happens for some specials like what I mentioned above, but I don't notice any pattern with heavies. also, p2099, civil warrior, and tech doombot seem to have a heavy hit box quite substantially larger than their animation
