Earlier today, there was an issue where Summoners that logged on shortly after the Login Calendar switched over for the day didn't receive the Cosmic Ghost Rider login crystal. We've fixed the issue for players receiving the crystal now but will have to collect data and send out the crystal to all players that didn't receive it next week. We apologize for this inconvenience and look forward to making it right for you all.

New AI for IMIW???

Anyone else seeing new AI for IMIW where he is able to parry your heavy attack? This is completely wrong when fighting this guy, especially in AW. If you can't land a heavy, especially when he's below 15%, it makes the fight even more difficult!

    Always had been. Ever heard of Stand your ground? What happens when you put that mastery with Parry? You get screwed. It's sucks, but it's been the case for a long time

    Maxing it, the chance is 50% to resist a block break iirc

    In AW, every enemy has Parry mastery, y'know.
    Parry and Stand Your Ground mastery (resist block break) is the most likely what happened here

    This shouldn't impact a heavy attack. If you parry him and heavy - it should allow you to connect on your heavy.

    I run 5/5, cause then atleast I have a chance during a lag spike to avoid eating a heavy to the face

    Parry (stun on timed block) plus heavy attack can still result in a Parry by the enemy if they have SyG. It's just rare

    Why not? This event is extremely rare but it does make sense. The AI isn't intelligent enough to trigger it, it just blocks at random times and it happened to do a well timed block, and SYG mastery triggered along with parry.

    I wish I had video of the fight. It appeared different than a normal resist or SYG type scenario. I understand what y'all are saying, but hard to confirm without the video.

    Thanks!
