View Full Version : Shinobiís heavy is broke

More then 6 times now have people blocked my heavy attack after getting a light parry. Once after a guardbreak. If this is intentional Iím quitting again. Shinobi needs buffs not just nerfs. And lately thatís all he seems to get

it is intentional.
Parrying lights ensures following up heavy but not all heavies, and Shinobi's heavies have a long animation.
guardbreaking no longer guarantee heavies, but u can get a sure light in.

Take Warlord for example who can get a top heavy from a gb, but never a side heavy unless you wall splat. However he can get a side heavy from a light parry. Some characters can only get top heavies or side heavies from parries or gbs. It all depends character to character. You just have to know your characters limitations.

Shinobi's should be guaranteed. It's 800ms, faster than the light parry's 900ms of stagger. Unless Shinobi's heavy speed changed?

Sounds like you input your heavy to late.

Or it's imput lag. On PC I met this very often.

The second heavy that goes into Sickle Rain is slower than the initial heavy. So it's blockable. Light parries don't punish as hard as heavy parries, so that might be the reason.
