Okay, been playing A3 over Kaillera with a buddy last night, and we noticed something weird.
On 4 separate occasions, my friend would perform an Alpha Counter and stop a normal I would do. However, before his character could do the follow up attack, I would do a special (in all the cases, Akuma’s HP Shoryuken) that ended up counterattacking and beating the hell out of my friend anyway.
My question is: what’s up with that? Did the Alpha Counter get nerfed that badly in the transition from A2 to A3? Is this bug as a result of A3’s shoddy hit detection? Or was this a fluke that may have been caused by lag from Kaillera (even though almost all of the matches we were having were relatively lag free)? I’m not exactly aware of all the nuances of A3, so I could use an explanation, or at least an educated guess.
