**UPDATE**
We are currently working to fix a known issue regarding Alliance Prestige. With the introduction of Relics, Summoner Prestige is now the average PI of your Top 5 Champions and the average PI of your Top 5 Relics (regardless of which Champion they are attached to) combined.

Today we pushed a fix that will allow for proper reward calculations in Alliance Quests. However, the display for Alliance Prestige will not be accurate and does not include Relic Prestige. This is a display issue only.

Dash back and dash forward

I'd like to know which fingers do you use to dash back and dash forward?

I use my left hand for blocking and dashing back, use my right hand to dash forward, for light attacks and heavy attacks. This way, I kinda feel that I am not fast enough to evade some long-range specials.

For example, against classic Iron Man or Iceman, when the defender has a bar of power, I dash back instantly right after I finish my combo. But then, the defender throws his special, and I can not be fast enough to make a second dash back. The timing is too short.

What am I missing? Should I use my right hand to dash back instead of the left hand?

    I never dash back after a combo. I either wait for a parry, or then I dex a special. If they block, and I need to bait a special, I hit into their block four times, then dash back, and if they throw the special, dash back again. (In the case of OG Iron Man)

    You just gotta get used to it.

    I have similar hand arrangement but I don't dash back immediately after a combo. I parry or if the opponent directly launches special attack I dash back. I'm also not really good at double dash back unless it's a special attack

    changing your hands for dashing back wouldn't solve your problem. especially for iceman, you don't want to dash back instantly, because he's very liberal with his specials. usually they'll dash back and use their special, so just hold block and react to their heavy attacks or mediums

    I use my left thumb for blocking, then I do everything with the right one. I just dashback when I gonna intercept or bait a sp. (Under normal circumstances)

    Yep. Dashing back immediately after a combo is the fastest way to get clipped. Always wait for the defender's next action. If they block, hit into their block before dashing back and they will usually dash forward for an easy intercept.
    Another trick I use is to hold and release block randomly forcing them to dash forward for easy intercepts.

    Ok, I see your point. But, what if the opponent is the boss and I don't want to take a block hit?

    To be honest, I m asking this question for the grandmaster. Hic mechanic is too complex and to be able to beat him, I need to be perfect for evading such specials. But, when I concentrate on his special too much, I miss other stuff.

    By the way, I generally can evade this kind of specials but get caught 1 out of 3. So, I really like to use my sparky :smile:

    If the left thumb is always fixed for blocking, I may not need to worry about blocking right after a dash back. So, I may have another chance to make a dash back. I am not sure whether this will work, just a thought.

    Yeah but what about taking block damage?

    I thought this as well but it is really hard to change the way you play.

    Don't end your combo with medium attack while the opponent is near a bar of power or at full bar of power. End the combo with light attack that will give to more time to react.

    I’m not saying take a blocked hit (unless it’s a parry, which has a damage reduction), but to hit into their block.
