Heavy connects on 1st hit but 2nd hit is resisted?!

This is a real issue now in war. It’s happened to me 3 times now. I have 2 of these instances on video. It’s happened to others in my alliance too. Mate was using Apocalypse today in war against Spider Gwen and the 1st hit of his heavy connected and she resisted his 2nd hit. Surely I don’t need to explain how this should be impossible as far as gameplay mechanics go.

If the 1st hit of my heavy was resisted I would accept it as it’s the ‘stand your ground’ mastery. Cool fair enough.

But a hit confirm on the 1st hit means the opponent is taking the full heavy. Should not be possible to resist/block the 2nd hit.

R3 She-Hulk vs Sasquatch. Hit confirm on 1st hit of her heavy and then he resists the 2nd hit.

R3 She-Hulk vs Void. Hit confirm on 1st hit of her heavy and then he resists the 2nd hit.

















Waiting patiently for your response guys and gals.

    This is due a mastery. Every heavy hit has a chance to resist breaking the block.

    If first hit connects on stand ur ground it cant on second doom its specifies that he resists when aura is active

    Edit: seems weird how the ai is reblocking instead of like a stunned motion in the heavy

    We know that it is a mastery but if we heavy someone all hits should connect. Just go in a fight and get heavied by ai. You can't block when the first attack of the heavy conncets.

    Yep indeed. I was skeptical at first but if the opponent is able to do that on defense then it would only be fair to have the same feature on offense. I tried with 50% Stand your ground-Resist against 4* r1 Thing and I noticed once the block had been broken there was near 0% chance to resist once more. This is really unfair.

    (Or just remove it on def and do as OP suggested)

    Lol, idk what some of you commenting are talking about. If the first hit connects, all are supposed to connect. The AI shouldn't be able to block in the middle of a heavy.

    Responding to the comment that got the most agrees.

    I don't know how long you guys have been playing but SYG has always worked like this. The mastery description has also always been the same. As we all know kabam has always had problems wording things vs how they actually work. So there are 2 options: it's bugged or this is how it's supposed to work. Kabam Zibiit has commented on a thread discussing this so he knew it was happening at one point.

    I looked up some sources since I saw people saying it's normal get disagrees.

    Those 2 links have no resolution from any mod. Only @Kabam Zibiit stating they will look into it. Nothing beyond that.

    The fact remains that it has to be a bug. IF THE 1st HIT OF A MULTI HIT HEAVY CONNECTS THE REST OF THE HITS IN THE HEAVY MUST CONNECT AS WELL. Otherwise you’re never safe to heavy anyone in AW or arena without risk of being resisted and/or parried, which is preposterous.

    The way I see it, it's not different than damn Spiderman evading after getting hit. If this is a bug, then that evade after getting hit should be a bug too right?

    I have no idea if this could be the reason but masteries like SYG and OG Spidey are all relatively older additions in this game, maybe their abilities are not as properly tested or updated as they should be? Just a guess

    no thats not how it works doom is like tht too he can resist mid way through a special a heavy any random time he wants

    It is because of his Aura of Hazareth. Which makes him to resist Sp Attacks.
  • it's a mastery

    its a mastry but once you actually get break through the persons block they cant resist it
