As we continue to work to address ongoing issues regarding Parry and Evade, we will be extending the Week 4 Quest of the Summer of Pain and its Solo Objectives by 1 week to better allow you to complete this content. This will not result in next week's content being delayed.

Parry, evade, and SOP

CoMinowCoMinow Posts: 109
If you know parry and evade are broken, why are you releasing content that requires you to do one or both constantly?

If you know evade isn’t working why have this stupid sop fight? where you have to use this broken feature every 5 seconds for a fight that lasts 5 minutes?! You know it’s literally impossible for anyone that has this issue to successfully evade the 100 times needed to complete the fight!

Let me guess.. next week the challenge description will read.
This defender gains a bar of power for every blocked attack. The defenders special attacks are 100% unblockable. The defender takes .5% direct damage for every well timed block, and the defender is immune to damage from all other sources.

It’s really messed up too have a money grab that exploits a broken feature.

    I’m just making sure I farm free revives and health pots each week. At least it will still be unit less.
    More concerning is whether it will be fixed in time for new AW. AQ is already painful enough on map 7 with the dex and parry issues!

    Agreed @TrubluMate

    Just wish the game would function as advertised and wondering if it ever will again

    While doing the Adaptoid fight I was reminded of how the parry timings recently introduced are a lot like it was to fight Adaptoids and Symbioids in the past. They have some super quick animations that are hard to react to and counter easily. Even absent the issues I don’t think this fight would’ve been any different for me.

    If the Beta is any indication, then probably so. I haven’t tried SQ in Beta yet, but there’s hope based on what I’ve seen so far.

    I’m sure haters are gonna hate, and pretty soon people will use this thread to brag about how awesome they are (lucky the game is working for them), but life is calling

    Thanks for the replies ladies, hope it gets fixed soon

    Funny.... @Karatemike415 has the parry and dex issues and yet did 4 different solos within 30 minutes of the fight being released.

    He did but it does not necessary mean that everyone should. Your logic is same as that which is given by people who tells others to do cavalier level difficulty with 3*s when they ask for more difficult content.

    Although I can meet those Metal/Villian/Shield milestones on the first day of release, it doesn’t mean that I have no parry dex issues during the fights, especially this Adaptoid requires dex+evade a lot during the fight. The experience is not very good but I treat it as additional pain point of the fight. I really hope they can fix this ASAP.

    Normally I explored 100% Cav EQ already, but this time I stop exploring as once I can’t evade the fight as normal, my champ got killed in just few combos.

    Guys I have a simple solution to this buy a new phone, one that was unaffected by the bug.
