They just stand...They hardly even react after a combo...They dont use their specials, instead they follow me as I dash back..its like I am doing arena

    Please do mike. All the bugs are still there, they didn’t fix much of anything with the updates

    I don’t think we’re ready for Season 9 to start a week from now.
  • Ok so as i started the quest i tried many champs (ghost venom quake) and with all of them the AI is so painfully defensive and they never wanna throw special attacks even when im out in the open not moving same thing goes for them attacking into me they refuse to do so which makes ghost completely useless for this which sucks and not to mention fights take forever since all the AI does is hold block and store power. This isn't meant to be taken as a rant or anything im mearly telling yall about a bug that makes the AI hyper defensive

    It's as if they're all on All or Nothing nodes for me...can't bait specials, can't even get them to throw more than the first Medium or Light attack. Very odd. Only time the AI does anything is SP3'ing.

    All this and intercepting is broken worse than before. Try to keep the AI cornered using Magik's power lock/intercepting technique or the backdraft intercepting technique and you get caught almost every time. It feels like the AI's animation speed has been increased or our champions' animation speed has been decreased. I'll record video of this later today to compare to past MCOC version gameplay.

    The hotfix literally did nothing. The game is still fun but it’s far more frustrating than it should be.

    I thought something was fishy when I couldn’t get King Groot to throw an SP1 but then OG Ultron… wouldn’t use sp1. Then no sp2...yeah, that’s not right AT ALL

    Yea this was annoying but if your using quake that's no problem at all

    Too slow and too defensive Ai behaviors in epic. They literally do nothing except unleashing their SP3. Roflmao

    I'm playing Epic difficulty of Quest for the Stones right now and the AI is so passive its frustrating. They just sit there and block, if you dash back all they do is walk forward, they don't use their specials, etc. I'm all for not having content excessively difficult but at the same time I do want the AI to put up a fight. Please look into and fix this!!!
  • Found the issue! This was not intentional and is unrelated to the Bug that was fixed in the last release. We're working on getting it out soon.

    So we are just going to get a different version of the ober defensive bug every month? I mean seriously, doesn't anyone check this stuff before it released.

    I used all my team revives that I was keeping on 1 single act 5 quest just because of this.Can't wait to see what's next :)

    Anyone else having a nightmare of a time baiting specials in the quest for the stones?
  • DemonzfyreDemonzfyre Posts: 6,516 ★★★★★
    They are super reserved, even at SP3 I doubt they throw one before you can get them down.
  • Dtl7714Dtl7714 Posts: 425 ★★★
    And how do you accidentally have this bug 2 months in a row despite it being related to different issues? I'm not saying its intentional but kabaam really knows how to feed conspiracy theories about sabotaging game play to make money
  • Timone147Timone147 Posts: 803 ★★★
    I can’t get them to attack at all. It’s absurd
  • JayV429JayV429 Posts: 17
    After hot fix I'm still getting the same issues I was having before hand the overly defensive ai, not throwing specials throwing specials while I'm attacking and also my parrys dont activate from time to time
  • JestressJestress Posts: 1,199 ★★★★
    All the AI does is run at you or hold block. They don't fire specials like normal.

    Yup, just faced a Mordo, whom was coward as hell.
  • IndyPowerIndyPower Posts: 10
    I faced Punisher 2099 and then Symbiote Supreme. They both were very defensive, and would not fire their specials when baited. Not even their special 3! I fought Symbiote Supreme for a good 30 seconds with his special meter at 100%. I was waiting for his special 3 to fire, but it never did. Weird but welcoming since I would have been KO'ed if the special 3 would have activated.

    This has started around the last month ...AI that -"DOES NOT WANT TO THROW THEIR SPECIALS " even if you stay still in front of them and baiting is non existent. That does not make sense for high PI opponents like 8-15K rated sentinels and other defensive champs in AQ . Sometimes I see the AI walking towards me instead of dashing towards me..thats not the problem though...its the similar AI I see in arenas where champs just do not throw specials and even special 3s...or only wait for special 3s . This is just unfair..among all the game mechanics that are in place right now. Please make the AI aggresive in AQ atleast....i saw passive AI in the stone collection quest of this month. too . This tells me something is wrong..10-12k rated opponents not playing aggresively ?
    Lower pi champs and the opponents in act 3 /act 4 are understandable..this AI in end-game content is just not right.

    if you have omega red, just stand next to them and let them degen to death

    Guess I should scrap the idea of using my Avengers right now for pts towards the special event and just drop some Quake on this and cruise thru it... Right now it's super frustrating for these super passive, all-or-nothing like fights.

    Why does this keep happening? Kabam Guys, are you messing with the AI and dependent timings constantly? If so, you should give leaving it alone a try. I get that it was unintended to make the AI annoyingly defensive, but messing with it seems to never do anything other than break something and/or annoy everyone.
