Parry on Heavy

This past war I used Hype to take on electro. I did a heavy on him, he resisted and PARRIED me.... how? Since when can heavies be parried?
Is that a risk I'm gonna take with hype in war now?

    To ellaborate, the Stand Your Ground mastery (found in the bottom path of the main defense tree) gives you a 17-50% chance to resist a heavy attack. In other words, let you block a heavy. I have mine set at 5/5 for the full 50% chance because my dash-back/evade skills are at the mercy of the Kabam system and I end up blocking (or trying to block) a fair amount of heavy attacks.

    When it's combined with the Parry mastery, it allows you a 17-50% chance to Parry a heavy attack if you time your block just right and the SYG chances allow it.

    Because this is a mastery-based thing, you will only face this in places where you fight against player-based defenders (arenas & AW). Because you only see it in a limited number of places and the AI doesn't Parry very often, very few people ever see it.
