Parry when I used a heavy

Apple iPhone 8+ on iOS 11.3.1
I was in the Crystal Cornucopia arena this morning. I was using a 5* unduped Magneto against a 5* unduped Capt. Marvel. I used a heavy attack against her and the resist icon came up, meaning they had the stand your ground mastery. No issue with that but it also parry'd my heavy. So both icon's came up at the same time. The blue word resist and the green word parry. This is not suppose to be possible. Please look into this. Thanks

    It is possible, that's why it happened, albeit very rare.

    It’s not a bug (as far as I know), but the chance of it happening is so low that you don’t really need to worry about it.

    Even after you've already hit him with the first hit?! Why is this happening?!
  • Whoa that’s weird. Cool, but weird.

    If they have the SYG mastery along with the Parry mastery, a well-timed block of a heavy attack that is successful (resists the hit) will generate a parry.

    It's extremely rare because it has to be a "perfect storm" of events:
    1) Have to be fighting against an opponent with those masteries/buffs (typically AW or Arena)
    2) You have to execute a heavy attack. Most players don't heavy against an opponent that isn't already blocking or stunned.
    3) The AI actually activates a block at the right time to parry.

    It's rare, but it does happen.

    It can happen, it's the stand your ground mastery and at the higher levels it has a 50% chance of working meaning they can parry your heavy after resisting it so it's not a bug.
