**KNOWN AW ISSUE**
Please be aware, there is a known issue with Saga badging when observing the AW map.
The team have found the source of the issue and will be updating with our next build.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
**KNOWN BG ISSUE**
We are aware of an issue with the seeding for the beginning of the BG season.
We are adding rewards to higher progression brackets to offset the additional grind.
More information here.
**Arcade is being extra tricky with his Murder Box...**
It appears Arcade has been non-cooperative in his approach to this month's side quest and presented his clues in a nonsensical order. Lucky you, Summoners, we have our best and brightest on the case and those clues should now be a lot more straightforward. While messing around in Arcade's files we came across a phrase, highlighted and bolded, with sparkles and pointy arrows: "the abode for the dead" ... Maybe that will help you along the way!

So Hitting Into Block Parry?

DeaconDeacon Posts: 4,152 ★★★★★
So I'm doing a random duel and all of a sudden I'm getting parried hitting into block .. I think I'll just restart obviously this is just one of those things like Monica said ... no way this is real when so many champs and nodes rely on hitting into block ... so I restart and the exact thing happens again.

Is this a thing now? If so . that's gonna make my life on attack quite bothersome.

    Yeah they had pushed a fix but it made the ai more passive regarding specials so they rolled back

    It apparently is worse with champs who have a double hit medium. I noticed it with Werewolf in BGs—hitting block ruptures defenders (and you needed DoT to gain power).

    Imagine my surprise when I kept getting parried striking block…

    It'd be cool if they gave the attacker that ability .. so I could just hold block and get parries.

    You can be as good as AI.
    Step 1. Run a match against a gambit and watch how fast he blocks.
    Step 2. All you need to do is have a seizure and make sure your thumb is on the screen at the same time to hit peak ai reparry methods.

    I just can’t drink the koolaid that says AI hyper speed reactivity and throwing a special are connected.

    That's just coding for you. I've had instances where I fixed an issue by literally just pressing backspace and undo.

    They gave us 2 options
    1. Ai that can reparry and throw intercepts and sp intercepts
    2. Ai that can’t reparry and hold sp until sp3 and immediately throw it

    It must just be me, but AI it still holding specials either just as much, or almost as much, I've said all week, thanos would just hold his specials for 30-60-90 seconds at a time, especially his sp2. It's like he was either waiting for the sp3 or special intercept.

    side note, I encountered something that may just be specific to Mr. Negative ... when I'm holding heavy for the evade punish, they simply will NOT dash in ... I fought a Kindred in BGs and man ... every single time I had my heavy evade ready .. he would just sit there and block and would not dash in .. not even a little bit.

    Guessing based on experience but they probably toned down the AI input sniffing sampling rate. So it doesn’t parry you within blocks but it also doesn’t roll the dice enough to throw specials based on the triggers. Kind of a damned if you do damned if you don’t.

    @Deacon Glad you posted that video that’s exactly what’s going on right now. Other champs are also having this happen but at least it shows exactly what the issue is we are facing.

    Ai is just mastered at reparrying. Either AI is trained off player data or it’s completely random “roll of the dice”.

    But that wouldn’t explain the increase in holding sp’s, reparrying, sp intercets, light intercepts, etc.

    Yep. Happens in the instant he gets bulwark and parries you. Double hit medium for the win.

    This seems like it will get fixed. But not until after BGs season.

    I'd be happy if my parries worked against every champ as reliable as they do against BPCW and Mordo.... especially since I don't intentionally parry either of them.....

    You mean the sticky extra long parry window you get against those champs? Or on Stunning Reflection?
