View Full Version : Question about parrying/guard breaking and heavy attacks.

When you guard break or parry someone, are there certain characters or moves that get a guaranteed hit, and some that aren't?

hen I first started playing during the closed beta (I was playing Orochi at the time, if it matters) is if I could get a parry or a guard break in, it seemed to be guaranteed a heavy attack. As I played more, I slowly noticed more and more people being able to sneak a block in there before I actually hit them. Then, during the open beta, I decided to mess around with all the other characters, and I noticed the blocks becoming much more frequent. I've been able to pull it off a couple times, but I haven't been able to figure out what exactly allowed me to block after being parried/guard broken. Is it something on my end, or something on their end?
