    Did you say blade sp2 is undexable? It's definitely dexable.

    Personally I think the mechanic is super weird but I quaked or Aegoned the whole thing so far. I think Corvus is really good for this as well. So not too bad, I've seen worse nodes.

    See this is the thing. I can Dex some that you can't and you can dex some that I can't. You say impossible which is objectively false. This is the fear most have with this node. I can't for the life of mine Dex Yellowjacket from close range. But others can. And for those who can't this root node becomes a death sentence

    I continue hating new mechanic.
    The game has already sufficient difficulty, there is no need to add more.
    Last month secondary event was not one players loved. Now this...

    I stand corrected, Blade's second part of his SP2 is fully evadable. Doesn't change the fact that a lot of the attacks on the list above are still manageable with Root.

    Oh no! The game shouldn't get too difficult :(

    How are you supposed to challenge the more experienced players, then?
  • grud9egrud9e Posts: 81
    I parried antmans first heavy hit and was then rooted for about 20 seconds while antman threw combos, dashed back, etc., and launched sp3. After sp3 animation I was unrooted.

    Thanks Kabam.

    But the point still stands. Many specials are very annoying as they stand. Now having to take them to the block just because of root is not something most players will look forward to
  • Campo4Campo4 Posts: 140
    I don't really have strong opinions about root. But I'm not sure it really adds anything meaningful to the game in the two nodes we've seen so far.

    There are interactions like OG Black Widow's heavy attack which is very difficult to evade while rooted yesterday which is fine, but also since she has evade chance and your parries often fail, you're left to basically intercept to get openings since block baiting heavies is now dangerous. That was the only fight that was a little annoying for me.

    Some cool things about it are the ability to punish specials that you normally wouldn't be able to, and it has some fun interactions with champs like Tigra who rely on spacing.

    I wonder if there could be a node design where you are to perform various tasks during the fight that would prevent you from being rooted if you complete them successfully. For example, "So Sayeth Doom" and the Grandmaster fight has such prompts. If you complete the tasks, you can avoid being rooted. However, you can also intentionally not complete the tasks if being rooted is advantageous for whatever reason. That puts a lot of control in the players hands which is always fun.

    Seems a little glitchy to me. Sometimes I will be locked out of any inputs when it activates (Example: I try to parry, but it doesn't register so I get hit in the face).

    It makes avoiding multi hit specials/heavies harder. And when your 2020 new champions have far reaching, multi-hit specials (Tigra, Black Widow Deadly Origins, Mole Man, Sasquatch, etc), it makes everything a lot harder without being more fun.

    As a bit of an aside - Tigra benefits from spacing (unblockable, etc). Root seems like it both helps and hurts her depending on if she is on offense / defense. That is one champion that I can think of so far, where Root will have unintended interactions.
  • Leiva_darkLeiva_dark Posts: 317 ★★
    About 90% of android problems (device independent) are: input drops, lag, and connection. Now we add to the delay and lag a way to make it worse, it is not good. I do not like the node with future combinations of fighters impossible to escape unscathed. Experienced players say it is a challenge for us but they forget that the game is designed for everyone and not for the most experienced. Either just give them a mission or add it to act 7 where they can go with their 6 * lists in r3 and without spending resources, see how they are doing and tell them if they are experienced. These tests are of little use since the node combinations are being tested with the easier fighters and it does not present a problem. but once it's approved I'm sure they'll put the most annoying combinations with the node to take advantage of it.

    I share your sentiment. I'm not strongly for or against right now, but slightly leaning against at the moment while I contemplate the potential applications in future content.

    I like your idea of a SSD replication where you could avoid being rooted, but I would like to see some sort of reward mechanism for dexing while rooted as well. I wouldn't find it fun if the prompts were "do X so you don't get 'punished'." I think history has shown that a majority of the playerbase enjoys when completing a task results in added damage dealt or increased block proficiency, or what not. Just a thought I'm playing around with, but I suspect that root would be far better received if we understood the potential upside to having it in the contest.

    You cut out less than half. And those are probably one's that you might be comfortable with. Not everyone. Even top players have stuff they're not comfortable with which others may do. Its subjective. I'm not 100% against Root, but it does pose a lot of issues which need to be taken into consideration.
  • EtjamaEtjama Posts: 7,103 ★★★★★
    This version is broken. First of all, the timer is all wrong and it's really throwing me off. Second of all, the root description says you're supposed to be able to attack. But distancing won't actually let you. All your attacks whiff when you try to attack them after you've parried.
  • Fred_JoeityFred_Joeity Posts: 1,113 ★★★
    Ummm... is it just me or are you unable to attack while rooted? I got hit with Root halfway through my combo and all my attacks whiffed. Got killed 3 times because of this. Is this a bug or am I just being stupid?
  • Fred_JoeityFred_Joeity Posts: 1,113 ★★★
    Ok so after a few revives worth of testing, it seems like medium attacks are fine-ish, but light attacks will always whiff. So basically if you get hit with the timer you can’t really do anything except dex for 10 seconds since a 2 combo isn’t really consistent enough to risk (in case you accidentally use a light instead of a medium).

    Not really a fan of this. I didn’t think it was a good idea from the beginning, but putting a timer on it is even worse since you’re forced to fight aggressive against defenders where you’re supposed to fight more defensively
  • Fred_JoeityFred_Joeity Posts: 1,113 ★★★
    Also as a side note, Root seems to slow your device for a bit when it’s activated, but that just might be me
  • OneMast3rOneMast3r Posts: 272
    I thought root on specials wasn't good enough to have as a mechanic.

    Root on heavy does make it a little harder. Most people are used to dashing back so some of the heavies aren't etched in your brain.
