What's up with this jacked up AI?

As if the game isn't broken enough with the parry timing and random other engine issues, we have to deal with garbage AI like this? The Apoc fakes a block to draw me in to get blasted in the face?!?! I've spent years hitting blocks while trying to bait a special but now we have this junk? How are we supposed to think there is any integrity in playing this game in it's current state?

    The AI has definitely been special intercepting more often. As annoying as it is, if I can do it, so can the AI I suppose

    If I get special intercepted for being sloppy I kick my own rear for that. It's the fake block that drew me in that is new and absolutely absurd
    So do you want the old and boring AI instead?

    I hear you!! I got a special to the face mid combo in AW yesterday.
    THAT is the most annoying and most ridiculous of all the things. I can never interrupt a combo from the defender yet somehow they can do it repeatedly now.
    Do you have a video of this? I have never seen or heard of this happening so would be interesting to see

    I’ve seen it a couple of times. It’s awfully hard to capture unless you are videoing all the time.

    There is a slightly slower combo cadence (I think) you can use to “extend” the combo timing, for example when trying to get to the right time to throw a special and avoid encroaching stun. I wonder if sometimes that isn’t what has happened and the player has just gotten too slow or that it is simply a dropped input that the AI turns on which looks like it was an interrupted combo.

    It doesn’t happen often in my experience.

    Ya, happens when using omega red so you can stay closer to your opponent longer. Just curious if an opponent actually throws a special while you’re doing a regular combo. That seems wild so i’d wanna see it, since nobody i know has ever brought it up

    I don't mind a tricky AI, but it shouldn't do everything we can.

    Imagine:

    - trying to hit into the AI's block from a long distance and getting parried every time

    -hitting into the AI's block once then getting parried on the second hit (reparry)

    - five hit combos into a special

    We can do these things, but if the AI did them we'd never win a fight.

    Does the AI have parry and dex masteries?
