Rhino no longer unblockable?

Cooled on this game but started playing a bit more since Infinity War was released and recently noticed that Rhino almost never triggers unblockable any more - not even against small opponents. Did Kabam nerf Rhino?

    Really? I’m not talking about unstoppable. I’m taking about unblockable. It’s not triggering for me against champs like Jane Foster and Spider-Man. They have no ability accuracy reduction.

    Slight chance he might be dashing unblockable randomly like he should but the notification isn’t coming up on the screen. He went through my block twice this past AQ as if he charged Unblockable and I couldn’t block or parry him.

    Well, it doesn’t tell us how much of a chance there is to be unblockable. All I know is that it triggers a lot more often when you are fighting against a Rhino than when your fighting with him.

    Thank you - maybe that's what's going on. All I know is I haven't been able to dash through blocks (against champs like Spider-Gwen) like I used to. Maybe they ramped it up defensively but toned down offensively. You are right that there is no indicator of chance percentage so who knows how it's determined?

    unblockable have chance to happen so spam back forward noob

    What a toxic community. It was a simple question. I don't miss these forums.

    First off I'm not a noob. I've played the game for 3 years.

    Secondly, I don't know what to tell you. It doesn't work for me. I've done entire quests testing this out where I only played Rhino and dashed forward the whole time. I may have seen "Unblockable" happen twice. It's very rare where it used to be more common. Case in point, a fight against Spider-Gwen where every time I would dash against her block she would block it. And she's a small champ which means Rhino should have an increased chance.

    It's not rocket science here. It either happens or it doesn't. And it's not happening for me which is why I asked.

    Ignore that guy. He's been calling people noob in a few threads.

    This unblockable seems to break after each update. Strange that mods are not saying anything this round.

    That's because of challenge rating. Things like this are more noticeable in a longer fight and a longer fight is against an opponent with a higher challenge rating than you.

    Challenger rating doesn’t affect abilities and RNG. According to Kabam (https://forums.playcontestofchampions.com/en/discussion/2317/challenger-rating-explained):

    Challenge Rating affects the following stats:
    Armor, Armor Penetration, Critical Hit Rating, Critical Damage Rating, Critical Resistance, Block Proficiency, Block Penetration

    No nerf has been discussed... maybe (since you took a break) your memory of how often he went unblockable is skewed...?

    I suppose that's possible but I don't think so. I remember when Rhino was a really terrible character (worse than Iron Patriot or Kamala or Colossus) but then Kabam buffed him up a bit and he actually became fun to play with his dashing. And you could usually count on breaking the opponent's block at least once per fight.

    But now I can't get him to block break and he's not as much fun to play anymore. I do notice that when I fight against him he will break my blocks but when I fight with him it doesn't happen. Coincidence? When he does block break against you, you don't see the "Unblockable" message all the time so I think that is bugged for sure.

    Most people probably don't care about Rhino because he's not "god tier" so this probably won't get fixed. There are also a lot more bugs with the game these days I've noticed.
