Dark field fails to activate bug

Okay, this time I set it to the correct bugs and known issues category. Cyclonus’ dark field fails to activate sometimes against Motormaster’s unstoppable (I’m sure it happens against others with it too, but this is my usual matchup and where I see it).

Please, no comments about standing still.

  • Hey there, would you be able to tell us what modes those fights were in?

    Thanks for the response. My last few posts on it have been in AM. However I have gotten it in arenas (but now I rarely get that match up if even) and solo missions (don’t take him on those anymore).

    iPad with latest iOS version and TFTF version.

    Actually had a matchup in arenas. Here it is failing

    And

    In this one, you can see it failing and then a few seconds later, it works doing the exact same thing.

    This behavior annoys me as well. And I really don't mean to be a smartaleck -- I saw your note about not commenting on standing still. But standing still does seem to be the main factor here.

    The TFTF game engine seems to prioritize motion over position in these cases. It's why we can backstep/sidestep attacks that are so much right on top of us that the attack is actually drawn over our bot. (Backstepping into a wall, to use a common example.)

    I worry that "fixing" the Motormaster dash issue might have the unintended consequence of messing up our ability to backstep out of an attack that's right on top of us.

    This was Sunday

    It was close, but I’ll admit that I was probably too far away. Just wanted to post something for the last day of AM. 😇

    This was from an older fight.

    It’s weird, did his unstoppable dash always stack on top of his S2 unstoppable? I seem to recall in the past that Cyclonus’ dark field would cancel it all out on the dash.

    I wouldn’t put it past Kabam programming. However, it has failed for me, too, while standing still when I was testing things (posted a gif about that in the other thread).

    Anyways, here’s one for a laugh. When dark field works when it’s least expected.

    My only problem with cyclonus is that his dark field doesn't work especially when you're getting beat up real bad.

    This is my problem in Samsung Galaxy tab A(2017).

    You mean when he fills a power bar and not during an unstoppable dash? That’s not good either. You should try recording it and posting.

    Just noticed this part. Yeah, I wouldn’t put it past something like this happening.

    Especially against characters who have Unstoppable.

    Yes yes, that is true. 🤔
