Jormungandr rework

We're reworking Jormungandr following the Testing Grounds we held in the previous season. The rework focuses on replacing the hero's game plan from draining your opponent's Stamina to displacing your opponents to get the upper hand. To do so, we've added a few new moves to the hero's arsenal, moved some attacks around to give the hero better openers as well as better flow while in chains. These changes should help the hero reach their full potential and perform better in today's metagame.

Dodge Changes

As we have tested in a previous Testing Grounds, we're adjusting Dodges and Dodge Attacks to be more in-line with how we are pushing gameplay forward. We want defensive Dodge Attacks to be higher risk moves so that players are not overly incentivized to use them to defend themselves; while they are still good defensive options, they should now be riskier to use, and require a read on the defender's part, especially when used against feintable attacks.

We've also heard your feedback that some of the changes felt bad on slow, feintable dodge attacks, and as such for the three heroes that have these types of Side Dodge attacks (Jiang Jun, Tiandi and Warmonger) they will not grant the same punish as for the faster ones.

Side Dodge Heavy attacks

  • Non-feintable Side Dodge Heavy attacks now act as Light attacks when parried
    • Jiang Jun, Tiandi and Warmonger's Side Dodge Heavy attacks still act as Heavy attacks when parried

Delayable Side Dodge Attacks

  • Most side Dodge attacks are now able to be performed from 200ms to 400ms during Side Dodges
  • The following heroes have different timings for their Side Dodge attacks
    • Jiang Jun: Mighty Backlash is 300ms to 500ms
    • Tiandi: Tiger Dodge is 100ms to 300ms, Dragon Dodge is 200ms to 300ms
    • Warden: Shoulder Bash is 300ms to 500ms
    • Warmonger: Both Beast of Prey and Preying Claw are 300ms to 500ms

Side Dodge Bashes vulnerability

  • The following Side Dodge Bashes were changed:
    • Conqueror's Shield Bash (used as a Side Dodge Attack)
      • Now 600ms, up from 533ms
      • Miss recovery is now 800ms, up from 700ms
    • Gladiator's Sucker Punch (used as a Side Dodge attack)
      • No longer chains on miss
    • Lawbringer's Shove (used as a Side Dodge attack)
      • Miss recovery is now 700ms
    • Shinobi: Reaper's Dance
      • Miss recovery is now 700ms, up from 600ms
    • Shugoki's Headbutt (used as a Side Dodge attack)
      • Now 600ms, up from 533ms
      • Miss recovery is now 700ms, up from 600ms
      • No longer chains on miss

Defense while dodging

  • Non-Reflex Guard heroes no longer have regular Block while dodging in any direction, regardless of if the stance is forced or not, for most of the duration of the dodge
  • Heroes regain their defense 100ms after being able to change their Stance during a Dodge
  • Conqueror Superior Block window is now 100ms to 300ms, down from 100ms to 600ms in both Front and Side Dodges
  • Kensei Superior Block window is now 100ms to 300ms, down from 100ms to 600ms on Side Dodges and 100ms to 700ms in Front Dodge
