    1. We brought this to ur attention.
    2. We submitted proofs
    3. We shared details as required
    4. We suffered in each war, Uncollected eq, Map5 to name a few
    5. A large portion of community plays fine while few suffer

    @Kabam Miike how long to u plan to keep us in hell?

    Completely agree, I am still suffering silly losses of health because of this

    it looks like, it's not the attacking champ causing the blocking but the defense champ.
    I was playing with Hawkeye vs Shehulk, she constantly blocked my special 1.
    Hawkeye vs Agent Venom, special 1 was successful.

    Defense champ is recovering quickly from a medium attack, much quicker than it normally would. So, after the quick recovery the AI is able to block regularly. There will be times that it will not block, making the special attack to be successful, but it looks like it already recovered from the last hit and just didn't block.

    Void special also blocked... no matter special after 2 combo or 5 combo... not everytime but, very often...
    Vision and Blade too..

    so i assume this is not specific heroes problem... but programming problem.

    Please fix it

    I believe it is a programming problem too, they still haven't updated us on this...
  • Similarly, Red Hulk used to recover quickly after trying a heavy attack. This caused Red Hulk to recover before you can hit him, so you either get blocked or you get countered. If defense champ's recovery from a medium attack is too fast, it may be causing the same effect.

    Having this issue is very difficult in AW against an all or nothing node if you rely on power burn from specials.
  • I’ve noticed it with a few champs for weeks, my friend says I’m crazy. Iron man (og) sp2 gets blocked quite a bit, that’s the most noticeable. I’ve also noticed, ever since the overheating patch, that many of the characters kinda slow down on the medium at the end of a 5 combo. Characters who end their combo with a drop kick (wolv, dd, spidey etc) seem to float almost, like Ghost combat kinda. It was obvious to me right after that patch.

    It's not only when ending a combo with a medium. I end my combos with a light attack (MLLLL) and it also gets blocked. My Hawkeye work well, I always manage to chain a SP1 after a combo, but I never manage the same with Hulk. Ocasionally, Blade's SP2 also get blocked.

    There is no problem, it's working as intended, it was fixed with a frame rate enhancement and will be clarified soon by a description update to how SPs work. If this worked in the past it was highly device dependent. You can however purchase revives and health pots or spend more and practice to get good.

    Your helpful Mods will be with you shortly. Please stay on the line.

    I’ve noticed this a lot too, been getting worse since update 18.0. Seems like a money grab. I may have to stop playing completely. I felt they made it worse on purpose. I see it happening in any of the following situations with any champ: special after 1,2,3,4,5 hits in a combo. I.e. triggering an L1 or L2 special at any point in a combo is getting blocked. It’s more likely the higher the difficulty level of the fight. It’s not like I’m hesitating and giving the AI a chance, it’s more like everything has auto-block suddenly. This is a new problem but I’m fairly certain 18.0 introduced it.

    @mostlyharmlessn are you out of your mind. I m playing for 3 years, have a wonderful roster, AW mvp. Do i still need to get good???

    This started since 18.0 and tortured me for a month. Its still there, just not 100% but its there. When the AI makes up its mind, u can't hit it with a special attack unless u intercept with it.

    The problem is not wide spread, but that doesn't mean its not there. All these ppl who r reporting it are not fools.

    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!

    Iron Man (original) gets his L2 blocked literally every time now. He’s become like Cap Marvel used to be L2 is unusable unless you fire it off of a parry or on an intercept.

    My iron man and s.iron man’s sp 1 and 2 always miss!

    He was being sarcastic, the issue is completely real and was acknowledged by foru staff

    LOL sorry the sarcasm was missed throwing around recent excuses Kabam has given for how things were working as intended since 18.

    And I would venture to say the problem is more widespread then Kabam thinks, just been going on and getting progressively worse for so long, people have given up.
  • Hey there everyone, we're going to check on the status of this with the rest of the team.
  • HENRIQUE_FORTEHENRIQUE_FORTE Posts: 348 ★★
    Doing 5.3.5. Blade's SP1 fails so many times it's painful to watch... And expensive too, because then I get comboed and need to revive.

    Happened frequently against Emma Frost in the uncanny danger rooms. I always chain my specials from MLLL - 4 hit combos because I gave up chaining from 5-hit ones long ago. When I can't chain from these 4 hit ones I know there is an issue
  • PennmabobPennmabob Posts: 667 ★★★
    Oh yeah i just fought a AQ map 4 kingpin with SL, threw my special 2 and it got blocked. I still won but if i lost at least i would've gotten some decent damage off before i died

    Please report this issue using the bug report template in the 20.0 device OS specific thread.

    Despite this being reported and getting worse, not better for over a year now....

    I reported it on my bug report, it seems that I am the only one that reported it, it's the only issue I seem to be facing, we have to wait for the update by Zibiit or whoever

    Not recent, in fact I know it's been over a year, but Hulk's L1... if used when the opponent is NOT pinned against the wall will always get blocked, no matter how lightning fast you hit it after any type of combo. Once they get up against the wall you can hit it slow as molasses after your combo and it lands just fine.

    Arena, Master, other areas.

    It's all over. As soon as you release a Special, they Block. Reaction time is 0. The only way to get a Special in is to surprise chain it in a Combo, which is difficult with controls that are lagging. It's very prevalent now. Most Specials are Blocked instantly. The moment they're fired. Both L1 and L2.

    Hyperion’s sp2 sometimes won’t connect on a full hit combo (after 4 lights or 2 mediums)

  • KaruseusKaruseus Posts: 373
    the timing for sp after combo to connect has become incredibly severe i agree,
    but i just got used to that severe timing and im not having any problem with this issue

    Im using iphone 6s btw
  • iRetr0iRetr0 Posts: 1,234 ★★★★
    It's mostly with every champ and every gamemode I believe, you can't fire an SP after a 5 hit combo, Galaxy Note 4 here

    I already had this smartphone when this problem started, some 2 months ago. You try take Hulk into act 5 and then try a SP1 when when the enemy is not pinned against the wall. That never fails to fail.

    You are certainly not the only one who's reported this. Many, myself included have been reporting this for well over a year, and just given up continually reporting the same issue over and over. I've given up on it, it's a contributing factor to many that quit the game.

    Hulks sp 1 Pixel 2 xl, most up to date OS. Been that wy since inception for me.
  • AfflictionAffliction Posts: 368 ★★
    I read the first page only and was surprised hulk's sp1 didn't come up first. It's by far the worst for me. Absolutely impossible with a 5 hit unless they're against the wall.
