Did a search first and didn't find anything relevant to this topic, so...
Just finished a match and encountered something I hadn't seen before. Curious if it's just a technique I'm ignorant of or if it's actually something that's not supposed to happen.
In the match I played, one of my opponents was able to escape being launched, after the hit connected, without using their evade item. Basically, I hit them with a strong triangle attack and it lifted them into the air slightly but did not result in a full launch. Instead, they just fell back to the ground after being lifted what appeared to be only a few feet off the ground. This was in four-player Favor of the Gods and no other opponents were in the vicinity when this occured and no magic or spear attacks seemed to be involved. Furthermore, it was not a killing blow, in fact, it left them with quite an advantage.
Has anyone else seen this? If it is a legitimate technique, what's the secret?
