Parry and yondu/Ironman I.F.

Ive recently noticed that parry doesn't work as its supposed to against these 2 champs (maybe more). If you parry yondu when he attacks you with his yaka arrow, I've found it particularly difficult, if not impossible, to stun him. The same goes for Ironman I.F., if he attacks you with... whatever his attack that does repulsor damage is.... that even though it may say you have parried the attack, it refuses to stun him. I even made sure that there were less than 4 molecular armor charges.

I guess what I'm saying is that maybe these champs need to be looked at more in depth to see what I'm referring to. I may be wrong, but that's what I have observed. If this ISNT a bug in the game, then kabam needs to either update the parry mastery or update those 2 champs to include parry stun immune on yaka arrow/repulsor attacks.

    Yondu's attacks are with his Yaka arrow and thus considered ranged. Making them very difficult to parry. I am not 100% sure if it's light attacks but it has to do with that mechanic.

    IMIW specifically says in his character description that certain aspects of his attacks are with his repulsor rays and cannot be parried.

    Domino also starts many combos with a gunshot and thus can't be parry stunned on those attacks. It's working as intended.

    Dash back and stun them when they dash at you if you're not proficient at intercepting.

    I understand what you mean about yondus yaka arrow, but IMIF still doesn't make sense. I looked up his abilities on repulsor attacks and all it says is that it doesn't make contact, deals energy damage, and cannot be evaded. It doesn't say anything about being stun immune on those attacks. Magneto and doctor strange only deal energy based attacks, but they are still able to be stunned on their attacks. I don't see why IMIF gets to be parry immune on repulsor (energy) attacks but they don't.

    You can parry a projectile attack, and reduce the damage, but you cannot inflict the parry stun on them, unless you are Proxima Midnight.

    Yondu, IMIW and Domino have projectile attacks in their normal combos.

    Dr Strange and Magneto still make contact, but the damage type is energy instead of physical. Because Kabam.

    I know, we need a wikipediia on all the nuances and nonsense.

    If they are projectile attacks could DD classic exploit that.

    Yes he can evade mid combo. But keep in mind that IW IM repulsor attacks ignore evade

    @KRONOSDOUBLE it's listed in the description of the parry mastery. "if contact is made, stun attackers for.... ". This means that projectiles and IMIW repulsor attacks do not cause them to be stunned when parried.

    Yondu can be parried. His light attack is yaka arrow which can't be parried. His medium is a regular attack which can be parried. If you stand next to him, he will throw a light attack. If you move away and wait for him to dash forward and attack you, he will throw a medium which can be parried. That's how I play him. Parry his dash attack. Push him to L1 and bait his L1. Don't ever push him to L2. It's difficult to evade.
