Medusa still autoblocks whilst stunned.

Despite the fact this was supposedly fixed in a recent update, Medusa has autoblocked me whilst stunned twice in the last few days.

Playing in arena, infinite streak on an Android Moto G-plus. She's done this to Juggernaut, and to Hyperion (mid-heavy attack). Each time she also shrugs off the stun early, and Parry-stunned my champion. Didn't lose streak; but still pretty irritating.

Are others still expecting this, too?

    Should have said: this didn't occur whilst Medusa or I were at very low health/due to Assassin mastery; no boosts used.

    IMIW did this to me as well on that path he is on in Uncollected monthly event (Map 3.2). I had him in a stun chain with Thor and before the timer was even expired he auto-blocked my SP1.

    Yep happened to me 2 days ago in AW. I was autoblocked/parried after striking Medusa twice while she was under stun effect. I then tested it out in a duel and confirmed as it happened again. @Kabam Miike

    Just got parry/stunned by Medusa's autoblocks after attacking her whilst she was stunned herself. Again.

    She autoblocks and removes the stun effect, and launches straight into a five-hit combo whilst you're now stunned.

    This hurts! And can completely turn around matches you're in control of.

    It would be nice to have this on-going bug sorted some time, please. Or at least acknowledged by a moderator.

    Added a few words of my own in orange color on the following as described by Kabam Zibit's post above.
    - When struck twice even while stunned, Medusa has 10~90% chance to Auto Block with her hair, breaking the opponent’s combo, for the cost of 3 Fury Buffs. This can trigger Parry.

    Does it includes multi-hit special?

    Hey there, Medusa's auto-block is a little bit different than others. She supposed to be able able to trigger Auto-Block and break an opponent's combo, even while she is under the effects of a Stun. This can still only occur if she has 3 Fury Buffs, which will be consumed by the Stun. We'll be updating her description in the game so that this is more clear in the future.

    I've taken a little time to respond to this, Zibiit; as your response came as something of a surprise.

    It seemed clear previously that this was a bug:
    ck9phyf5tuxo.png

    That's the opinion from Miike in a previous thread on this subject - https://forums.playcontestofchampions.com/en/discussion/67175/iron-man-infinity-war-autoblocking-while-stunned-mod-edited-title-for-clarity/p1

    Personally I don't mind Medusa having this ability; although it's a little awkward to work around. Knowing about it is key.
    However, this is clearly a shift in Medusa's intended abilities. It seems rather akin to other champs having unintended or unadvertised abilities that have been subsequently 'adopted' as MCOC canon.

    I'm glad to hear that you're planning to make sure this becomes 'official' in Medusa's description as soon as possible. It would be a shame to get another situation where a Bug becomes part of a champion's recognised Power Set in the forums, only to be quietly removed many months later because someone else has been working on it as a 'Bug Fix'.

    The scenarios of Archangel Vs Stun-immune champs and Drax Vs Evade have set unfortunate precedents, as I'm sure you'll appreciate.

    Thank you for acknowledging the thread, and updating me and the community.

    Tragic that Mike acknowledges it as an issue only for another mod to back pedal and say its working as intended. Grade A communication not only to us, but between yourselves.

    i agree it is stupid for her to have an ability that isnt listed....
    and it should be listed by now....

    but in all fairness the topics of the threads that have been linked here are all regarding IMIW not medusa.

    It would be amazing if the bug with Hela's immortality based on a synergy with Heimdall would be added in the description instead of being fixed.

    Medusa's autoblock comes from her hair, which have a mind of their own, therefore living strands. Thus it's not that surprising, though annoying I'm sure, that she can autoblock while stunned. A way around this is to get the pacify mastery, which reduces AA while stunned.

    Hi there Zibiit. I'm writing following the latest (21.0) update which once again doesn't cover this change for Medusa.

    I'm re-posting here to ask if you can confirm if this is still a planned change; and when it's going to happen?

    If Medusa is working as intended, and all you need is to change the description of her Sig, I don't really understand why it's taking months to happen.

    Sorry to chase you; but I'm just trying to help with clarity in the contest. Hope that's okay. 😀👍

    The information provided in the post you quote is correct. There is no issue, as was already explained. The text description in game will be updated at a later date.
