    He didn't hit through your block. You tried to swipe back and evade his SP2 but got the timing wrong, hence got clipped and died.

    Sorry..But a big no ..I was clearly holding the block..usually I try to evade the last part of the sp2

    I started experiencing something similar very near the start of AW Season 3...so likely update 19.0.

    I used to be able to evade all parts of Green Goblin's L2 without fail. I'd push him to it to avoid the block damage from the L1.

    After the update, I fought him on 2 different nodes in a single war (usually an easy fight) and 3 different times I got clipped by the last glider hit of the L2, just before the bomb. I tested it out again in a few more arenas and something similar was happening. I could only seem to evade the L2 1 out of every 5 times or so.

    I never brought it up because I don't have a way to prove that it wasn't just me. I never had a problem with his L2 before over countless fights and now I can't seem to evade it with any level of consistency. Any more, I evade the first hit and block the next 2 just to be safe.

    It kind of reminds me of the Domino "block break" issue where it was really a timing issue that was a factor of how fast the two hits connect (like hits 2 and 3 for GG's L2). That looks to be what's happening in the video. But from my own experience coupled with this video, it seems that the timing of Green Goblin's L2 has changed in the last month or so.

    It could be just me, but it just seems weird that I'd lose the skill to evade so suddenly right as an update occurs. It seems worth looking into.

    No you're wrong. GG's L2 is meant to be like that. Always has. Unless he's been broken since his release, then please carry on.

    You tried evading his special and got clipped. Nothing wrong with him. I made the same mistake yesterday which the first goblin. And lost starlord. What I did notice is he’s not baiting as much as before

    On what basis everyone are saying that I was trying to evade ??I know the way I played I was blocking to be on a safer side...I don't get it

    Try not to take it personally. I think people are still sensitive to this thanks to Domino. So many people were getting clipped by this very issue that it was reported and later confirmed by Kabam as an unintentional block break. Kabam later walked that statement back and said it's a function of the timing of the hits. Turns out, people were instinctively attempting to swipe back after an initial block to avoid damage. This technique has a chance of working with no real risk against most other champs. However, the timing of Domino's hits were such that attempting to evade after a block would drop your block and result in a hit. This all happened so fast that it appeared to be a block break.

    People swore up and down that they weren't trying to swipe back against Domino whenever they "had their block broken" but a true block break couldn't be replicated when no dodge was attempted (i.e. just holding block and nothing else...see Dorky Dave's video). I think that might be happening here with you against Green Goblin. You may think that you only held block, but it's possible you may have instinctively tried to evade at some point during the animation.

    Given the Domino issue, I'd say a true block break is possible, but unlikely in this case. The two look too similar and the Domino issue was explained and tested. However, it does seem like with the number of people reporting issues, something has changed with Green Goblin's L2 and I think it's worth testing and investigating.

    ^This. But even with all that they did tune him too strong. He’s storing power a lot more than before and his attack is ridiculous. Day 2 2nd mini almost dropped my 4/55 SL with block damage alone. That’s what really needs to be addressed

    Edit: Read another thread and figured it out. The minis now have 400% attack and 200% health vs 450% health last season. I’m all for boosting the difficulty, but 400% attack isn’t boosting difficulty, it’s nerfing survivability. Garbage.

    this just happened to me 3 times
    i blocked the first part... i never moved at alll and got hit by the second hit

    While we have all made the mistake of trying to dex out of a block unsuccessfully.. I don't see his character dropping his block in the footage. He appears to be blocking through the strike. There's no way of knowing what his inputs were, so I'm not agreeing or disagreeing, just wondering why people are automatically dismissing his claim. The footage does not seem to indicate that he dropped his block.
  • hungryhungrybbqhungryhungrybbq Posts: 2,072 ★★★★
    Yeah, just watched it again. Hypes arms are folded as he is struck.. how did we conclude that he tried to dex out of it?

    Claim seems plausible/worth looking into.

    If you'll look at my post earlier, you'll see your question is answered, but here is the summary:

    People think he may have tried to evade thanks to the recent Domino issue that's still fresh in people's heads. If you'll remember, those videos gave no in-game indication that an evade was attempted either, which led people to believe there was a block-break mechanic going on. It was so subtle that it was even confirmed by Kabam as a block break, only to be walked back later. Since this issue looks similar and we know Kabam has been adjusting animation timing the last few months (Drax, Domino), people think it's possible that this is going on here as well.

    But we agree that this should be looked into. So many people are having problems that didn't have problems before that it's clear that SOMETHING is different now and it's worth finding out what that is.
