Anyone else have their attacks whiffing more than usual?

I'm in Act 6, trying to complete the objectives. For some reason, things seem a bit off. It's as if the window during which a champ can't be hit when they've been knocked down has been increased slightly. Normally, I'd just throw my Punisher 2099's SP2 and then immediately run into the opponent and start wailing on them, but when I reach them now, my first attack or so just whiffs past them. Likewise, I was in the corner with the 6.1.1 Sabertooth boss, Doom-slapping him and having a grand ol' time when, suddenly, he was slapping my Doom with an almighty furry fury. I was standing right next to him and my heavy just didn't connect, which then gave him an opening to immediately counterattack me to a very untimely death.

Is this happening to anyone else?

    A lot of timing things are still off. Ive stopped using HB for the time being because his Heavy started to whiff a lot again, or he'd be attacked before he could heavy spam against champs that were on the spam-safe list.

    Same. I used him against Nimrod on completion and heavy spammed him into oblivion. Tried it during exploration and got countered each time

    Twice in aq map 7 buffed up lane venom vs vulture I threw my sp1 on the 4th hit and he blocked it. Twice. I just assumed my timing was off.

    This isn't exactly the same thing, but I just had RoL Winter Soldier interrupt Hulkbuster after the first hit of his SP2 before the beam. So many weird little things happening that hopefully get fixed during maintenance Tuesday.

    i've noticed that some champs have a higher reaction time to getting back up after being knocked down. storm x and g2099 to name a few. i tried probably 3 times to heavy spam in v6 with venom against g2099, and after about 3 heavies, she just gets up and does a 5 hit combo

    It has always been like this, you can't safely heavy spam Storm (OG and X), Guilly (OG and 2099), Venom the Duck and Jane Foster, they recover from the knock-down too fast and you can just hope that they will block instead of attacking you. These are the ones that I remember, but i'm fairly sure that there's another champion that i always forgot ^_^

    There was a post in bug section about storm x (3-4 months ago).
    There is a glitch, it was proven there was no standing up animation, she teleports to standing up after being in knocked down position.

    But in case of g99 she just recovers fast no bug there.

    Edit: here's the link to storm X recovery bug

    There was a bigger thread than this, which I recall was under a different header.

    Even my MVP (6 star HB) has been whiffing leaves a lit more than it happened before

    I’ve had AI in arena block parts of my special after being hit by it. They sometimes recover so fast you don’t even have to move after finishing a combo or special. All kinds of problems.

    My Light attack went through Hit-Monkey

    In aq today I’m just being hit mid combo, don’t even see a lag, I’m just getting hit by a combo or special when I was half way through my combo

    Thought it was just me. Glad to see it isn't the players but the game is the problem.
