Omega red hitting into block bug

When using Omega Red, while hitting into the opponents block they're able to start a combo in the middle of you hitting them, and even throw a special. I'm pretty sure this isn't supposed to happen because this isn't an issue with other champs. Is there a bug fix coming for this? Thanks!

    Have had this happen numerous times with the opponent dex'ing back in mid 5 hit combo. Super annoying.

    I've seen this using OR as well.

    Happened to me twice yesterday with omega. The “counter-combo-in-the-face-while-your-hitting-opponent” is baaaack :)

    It isn't just Omega red... it is pretty much every champ, since they changed it, and refuse to fix it for many, many, many months.
    They will close this thread, and say post in https://forums.playcontestofchampions.com/en/discussion/131901/hitting-into-block-being-countered-by-specials-merged-threads#latest instead...

    However, they haven't replied in that thread in many months. :(

    Really makes using omega a bit risky sometimes. Especially against Modok. Hope they do something about this.

    Just to add a little more to this, the April 2019 update had a change where:

    - Improved on the situation where the Opponent may launch a special attack while being attacked/while blocking

    and the September 2019 update had a change where:

    - Made further improvements to prevent the Defender from launching a Special attack while Attacking into their block.

    Attacking into a block is a critical portion of endgame gameplay. It's a big part of Masacre's and Omega Red's kit, it's often a strategy used to chip down low block proficiency champs like Dormammu or Cull Obsidian and is nearly necessary when fighting MODOK, and there's even a fight against Masacre in Abyss of Legends (where he has millions of health points) where you are forced to hit into his block to do any damage.

    Please address this issue.
