Special one and two keep getting blocked!

As the title states, my specials are being blocked after performing a combination. I've tried every combination so a special would land and nothing.
It started the last couple days. A few of my Ally members experiencing the same thing. Please help @Kabam Miike

    You should probably specify the champions

    My SP1 and SP2 have always been blockable if not used at the right time...

    Every champion. It happens in AQ, war, story quest etc...

    I'm an end game player and never had that issue before. I stayed above I even try other combos and nothing

    I've only noticed this with specific characters. Superior Iron Man, Ms. Marvel and Doctor Voodoo. After the 18.0 update I also noticed this happening with Hulk's L1.

    Same happens to me after update. Enemies are blocking/parry specials waaaaaaaay more often then usual. It's not specific champs, seems to occur on any champ. Seems, they reduced the recovery time AGAIN.
    That's really annoying. Every update, they want to screw us.

    This has been happening to me pretty regularly since the 18.0 update, and continues with 19.0. I'm guessing it is related to the CPU "reaction time" after being hit. They've probably tightened it up (reduced it) which makes it extremely difficult to string a special from a combo attack.

    These types of subtle changes aren't listed out in the changelog but it's definitely been different for a while now in an obvious effort to increase difficulty.

    I've stopped opening support tickets for stuff like this because it's always the same form-letter reply that never amounts to anything. And yes, I have reinstalled the game, closed background apps, rebooted my phone, etc.

    You have a great point about the AI reaction time

    Happens a LOT with me but it might just be slow reflexes after the 5 hit combo...

    I could understand after a 5 hit combo with reflex time, but I've tried hitting a special after 1 hit, 2,3,4 and I'm still blocked

    Hey All,

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention. This is something that the team has already been looking into, but if you can tell us what Champions you see this occur with, where you're seeing it (mode/quest, etc.), and who you're fighting against, that would be very helpful!

    Thank you!


    Mike, I will try to record this happening.

    I can tell you that it happens all the time (any game mode) with special 1 and 2 on my 5* Dr. Voodoo against pretty much any champ, but I do use him often so of course I would notice it right away there. I also saw it happening with Archangel's special 1 and 2.

    It's all kinds of champions in all kinds of modes, against all kinds of eniemes and it's been going on for awhile.

    Get you want specifics but in general it's a problem with the enemy ai itself which makes some fights a frustrating broken mess.

    Voodoo gets blocked a lot
    Yellow jacket gets blocked a lot
    Void gets blocked a lot

    It's not limited to specials either, there's been tons of these threads all over the place and there hasn't been much said about what exactly you're doing about it.

    From my experience, it's because of the device I use. On my galaxy s7 and any other old android devices that I've owned, I always seem to have my special attacks blocked a lot. However on my ipad, I rarely have that issue. Only one to have an sp attack blocked now is iron man's sp2.

    Hawkeye's special 1 triggers so slow that sometimes even immediately after a parry is blocked.

    Try to land an SP with Moon Knight after a combo ... simply impossible

    try and adapt to the game, if kabam cant fix the ai problems then adapt and intercept the ai with specials.

    I have no issue with intercept. I've beaten the end game content, unfortunately you can't always rely on intercepts. It's happened during intercept too.

    Specifically cant get an sp1 or 2 to not be blocked after combo with og hulk. Experimented in arena and multiple acts.

    Literally pick a Champion and pick a place to fight in the game and it happens.

    Blade L2 getting blocked after a 5 combo. Spark L1 same thing.

    Also block/parry is not functioning properly and adds to this issue. Trying to parry then combo or special either results in a block by the AI or the AI just combos us. And Act 5 is not very forgiving when you get hit by a 5 combo that you had no control to evade or block.

    I have the same problem too. I try using regular hulk's special 1 in evangeline challenge, no matter how early i trigger special one, captain america infinity war always blocks in time. The same issue happens for ant man final boss but not as severe as captain america infinity war. It happens when i trigger special 1 from MLLLM combo

    @Kabam Vydious Any news regarding this? I can't keep using revives.

    Medusa's SP1 gets blocked out of a combo on the reg now. That armor shatter is tougher to get now. But all my champs seem to struggle with this in harder content (act 5, uncollected, and even in some arena matches).
