Summoners, the Necrosword Crystals (the crystals in the Knull Cavalier Preview Bundle) currently have a higher than intended drop rate of 6-Star Champions.

We will be leaving the crystals as is for the time being, but will be correcting the drop rates before Knull receives his official release on October 28th. To ensure that this does not affect anybody that purchased this preview bundle, we will be auto-opening these crystals before that date, but this means you will not see what you received. To avoid any confusion, please open your crystals yourself ASAP.

Why Are Intercepts No Longer "Allowed" In Game?

I mean it's like every character in the game now has this hidden Unstoppable buff that they can just rush through any intercept at any point in the game. Doesn't matter if the timing is perfect. I mean is money that tight over there?

    Yes.. i see this very often..even if i am intercepting correctly then my champ will dash forward nd stop for some moments to let the enemy hit first. What kind of sly wickedness is this?? Dont steal peoples money please

    Im intercepting just fine...sometimes i get hit by a special while trying to intercept or dashing fowards..but thats okay

    I think your timing might be offf..

    If kabam start (removed by moderator) game mechanics eveywhere, soon there will be nobody left to play the game..

    People are not fools and they know that

    It works well. It's just timing and keeping your eye on the screen. Don't watch your champion, Watch the screen.

    Been playing this game since the beginning broseph. Don't be handing out bad advice. You don't watch the screen, you watch your opponent.

    With that said, timing isn't an issue either. Again, I've been playing this game since it came out. It's not that difficult to intercept. I'm not some kid complaining about their inability to parry. I'm noticing, along with ally mates, that the functionality of intercepting has been messed with to counter people's ability to run through content. I mean think about it. Look how they silently nerfed parry by making it "harder" by just altogether disabling half the parries that are activated. Blade's perfectly timed blocks prove that.

    I have no problems, my friends, my alliance, youtubers, and the others in this thread have no problems. So instead of being condescending maybe upgrade your device or get good?

    Condescending? You and that dude's comment are condescending if you were going by definition. Basically, calling me a liar AND handing out bad advice at the same. "Get good"? Kettle meet pot.



  • Haven't been having a problem with intercept myself.
  • Possibly a connection issue or maybe the device your using needs to be cache cleared. Just trying to help

    I apologize if my comment quoting your comment was condescending in any way. I didn't have any malicious intentions. I just don't like being called a liar.

    All good bro. I'm just going to try and catch what I'm talking about video then post it.

    I'm having the same problem. Rarely but when it happens I'm 100% sure it happened. Before you say that I'm just bad, the opponent takes the damage from my intercepting hit but still charge through, so there's no problem with my timing.

    Thanks my dude! I appreciate the help. If it was just localized to my device which is an iPhone 6+ then I would agree. I have ally mates who are running on the 8 and the 10 along with high end android devices and they're having the same problem.

    It's not like this overreaching problem where all intercepts aren't working. It happens every so often where even if the timing is correct the opponent will seemingly push through like Rhino or Juggs. Like I said I'm just going to try and catch it on video and post it.

    THANK YOU! That part about causing damage to the opponent but still not being allowed to intercept is exactly what I'm getting at. The number for damage will appear meaning the timing is right.

    Seems to me it's certain champs you use and go against the intercept timing is wonky. Like I have no problems intercepting on x23 but Thor I can't seem to intercept to save my life.
  • chaos3430chaos3430 Posts: 126
    Server latency and broken mechanics yet to be fixed causes most champs to intercept like Rhino, in fact my Rhino get intercepted on occasion by random champs in Arenas.

    Lags create issues like parry dexterity intercepting and blocking
  • I gave up trying to intercept anymore, most of the time it doesn't work for me. Now, I've failed to notice if they took damage or not so I'll keep an eye out for that. There are days I can't even get through easy content the intercepts and parries just fail left and right. I'm uncollected, so it's not that I don't know how to fight. I made it through realm of legends with a 3☆ starlord. There's something wonky with the game causing the issues, I'm sure (challenger rating is still a bs mechanic, if you time your block or parry perfectly there shouldn't be a random chance mechanic that causes it to fail, that's poor design). I was just attributing the failed parries and intercepts to lag on my device, it hiccups so often it's becoming impossible to react, you have to be a mind reader and anticipate moves now. But sometimes it runs smooth like it should, and intercepts are still a challenge to land. They are slowing making this game impossible to play for harder content, without paying.

    @Flash_Asher I agree with you on this. In fact, I remember a specific day where I felt like they messed with Rhino. I nearly always fight strictly using intercept mode, and he a was always extremely easy to beat. Then all of the sudden one day it changed, now he absolutely has to be parried or he will completely overpower an intercept attack every time.

    Some of the champs that I find tougher to incercept now are:

    Rhino
    Moon Knight
    Mags
    Juggy

    I guess it’s not a terrible thing, because it makes me change my style. But there is a noticeable difference.
  • mAleksandarmAleksandar Posts: 86
    You intercept rhino? I’d like to see a video of that...
  • JC_JC_ Posts: 518 ★★★
    @mAleksandar I’m not sure if you were replying to my comment, but if you were, then no I’m not intercepting him. Every time I try he gores my champ right in the face. :(

    So now I just Parry and hope that he doesn’t get an unblockable.
  • mAleksandarmAleksandar Posts: 86
    Yup, I was replying to your comment @JC_ ... You do know that you can’t intercept rhino since he’s unstoppable while dashing towards you? I mean, it’s in his description...
  • JC_JC_ Posts: 518 ★★★
    @mAleksandar well, that’s a little embarrassing. No, I actually did not know that. I thought he was just harder than the other champs to intercept. That makes sense..I guess I didn’t notice that in his description.
  • mAleksandarmAleksandar Posts: 86
    Glad I could be of some help ;)
    Anyway, game is broken in so many ways that it’s almost impossible to count them all...
  • SomeoneElseSomeoneElse Posts: 424 ★★★
    I noticed a change recently too. It’s another case of stealth changes meant to nerf our playing ability. We want a challenging game, but breaking all of our mechanics is not the way to go.

    FYI, you can occasionally intercept Rhino. I do it by accident sometimes. His unstoppable rush mechanic doesn’t always work.

    @zero7

    I know I have a lot to learn about the game, so I come to the forum to steal knowledge from better players. :-) so I’m happy to be taught. Thanks Bro!
