I was watching @SLHiImKeith 's stream today, and we noticed a funny thing happen during a match, so I went and looked into and found a pretty simple but cool thing.
If you are doing talon rake and in the middle if its active frames when they block a mortar, you immediate bounce as though they blocked it too and can still do the follow ups, no matter where you are in relation to opponent
This is functionally identical to a now-fixed Sadira bug wherein blocking a kunai would allow her to bounce off of thin air w/ whiffed Salticide.
I assume this is actually a universal bug that got “fixed” symptomatically because the pathos had not been identified. This should work w/ other cases as well, such as Shago air-fireball>divekick.
Yeah, I’ve seen it posted about the Divekick as well. But same as the Sadira one, I haven’t heard about it in a while.
This isn’t the first time this bug and its ilk have shown up, and it probably won’t be the last. How long this one stays probably just depends on when the next major update comes out.
