Title: v6326 Rook air super can’t be backward-thrown when blocked after crossing over

Summary: If the opponent crosses under Rook’s air super and blocks it, they can only throw him forward immediately after the super ends.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Rook does air super.
  2. Opponent holds the walk button toward where Rook originally was, passing underneath but staying in a position where they will get hit but block the super.
  3. If the opponent also mashes A while holding back to block, they will throw Rook out of his recovery frames, but they will perform a forward throw.

Expected Results: Backward throw Rook out of his recovery

Actual Results: Forward throw Rook out of his recovery

Notes: If the opponent does not pass under Rook during his time in the air, they will not be close enough to throw him during his recovery time.

Game Version: v6326

System Information: 15" Retina MacBook Pro running macOS 10.12 Sierra

Confirmed as a bug, I reproduced it with Jaina vs. Rook.


#3

If you mash fast enough, you can get other moves backwards as well, such as geiger flash gear

Incidentally, unless I’ve been doing something pretty wrong, this bug seems to remain unfixed in the newest build
