Summoners, we recently encountered an issue with the Alliance Quest Setup Phase Starting Timer that may cause the Setup Phase Starting Timer to display erroneous information, though we are working on a fix for it as quickly as possible. Additionally, if the Setup Phase does not let you plan your days in advance, you will be able to once the Event officially begins on the Alliance Quest Start date.

For clarity, the next Alliance Quest Enlistment Phase will begin on December 5 at 20:00 UTC, regardless of what the in-game timers display.

The next Alliance Quest Start will be on December 6 at 20:00 UTC. This is when Summoners should be able to enter each Map. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to resolve this issue.
Alliance War Season Rewards will start to roll out to Summoners very soon. These will take a while to get to everybody, so do not worry if an Alliance Mate receives their rewards, but you haven't yet. We thank you for your patience.

v14.0 Captain Marvel Still Can't Connect SP2 w/ 5-Hit Combo Chain

Just tried this in three fights, and she still can't connect a special 2 with a combo chain.

Thought this was fixed?

    A couple of people point this out, but, it's risky to use a l2 after a 5 hit combo with any champ, when the AI is on hard.

    I know there is an issue in particular with Miss Marvel because I have her at sig 80, but it's ALWAYS better to l2 off lower count combos then higher ones, bugs or no.

    It happens to be with all the champs! No matter what I do, 5 combo hits + SP2 is always blocked! 4 combo + SP2 is fine. Same as SP1.

    I'm using Android (ONEPLUS3)

    So stick to a 4 hit combo when you plan on using sp2 lol

    Still not fixed - seeing it in Map 5 and harder Chapter Content

    I'll have to disagree here. I can connect sp2 with a 5 hit combo on most champs. Some exceptions are magneto, ms/captain marvel, electro

    That's fair enough.

    I'm not sure where you're at in the game but I will never ever ever attempt a special off 5 hits. 4 hits is usually okay, except with MM.

    Is Act 5/RttL chapter 4 hard enough content? Because I can land an sp2 after a 5 hit combo with most champs there (except the ones listed here)

    Really? That surprises me.

    I'm definitely not that much of a risktaker.
  • VortenusVortenus Posts: 26
    Where's the risk? Most champs can easily connect special after mlllm.
  • Tmasters1984Tmasters1984 Posts: 451
    There's a natural pause after any 5 hit combo that gives the AI recovery to block.

    It's why there aren't 6 hit chains.
  • ThawnimThawnim Posts: 1,461 ★★★★
    If your Captain Marvel or Ms. Marvel is duped it is kind of nice sometimes to let her power meter run up so you can get the extra damage on her hits. Just an FYI.
    But yes, it's impossible to safely land her s2 off a 5 hit combo.
  • Tmasters1984Tmasters1984 Posts: 451
    I feel like I need to say that she's working much better for me after the update. I'm actually using her specials when I never was before.

    Lots of problems with the game still, but this seems fixed to me.

    I usually end my combo with a medium hit then spam the sp button, sometimes I'm able to connect.

    just make it unblockable. That'll be better
  • shingbabshingbab Posts: 120
    Just tried vs ROL WS.
    He pretty consistently blocked it so I'd say this claim is legit
    (I've done a run of LoL, regularly chain specials after 5 hits, own a 5* rank 4 Captain Marvel)

    With all due respect, why does every hero need to connect with a special after using a 5 hit combo?
  • Tmasters1984Tmasters1984 Posts: 451
    I agree ^

    Linking specials to 5-hit combos is risky with lots of champs. Probably half the roster. Just try it with lesser combos and it connects now. It's fixed.

    Can't comment on that. I don't mind either way, but I guess it's in response to the 14.0 changelog:

    "- Fixed the following character specific animation issues that were causing difficulties chaining from a combo into a special attack.:...
    Ms. Marvel and Captain Marvel Special 2"

  • Tmasters1984Tmasters1984 Posts: 451
    It's fixed for me. I've been playing all week and have landed every l2.

    As I.said upthread I never special off a 5-hit so I've definitely noticed a change

    half? nah. A handful tops.
    Traditionally:

    - SW sp1
    - Electro sp2
    - Magneto sp2
    - MM/CM sp2
    - Juggs sp1
    - spidey sp1

    ...can't think of many more.
    With 14.0 you can now 5 hit combo>special most of these. But still not CM/MM. As said - it bothers me not, but perhaps it's supposed to be so now.

    Juggs and SW sp1 are fixed now.
