Why is Sly's level 1 uninterruptable?

21 replies 305 views Edited Dec 20, 2012

I know that it really annoys some players, and sometimes it bothers me too. I can't see how he'd be at any disadvantage if he could be interrupted like everyone else can.

BECAUSE IT'S A HIPPO DON'T TRY TO STOP A HIPPO

actually I think it is possible to be stopped, but very very hard.

I've never seen him knocked out of it. Not even by characters using high priority attacks.

Try it out in Practice, then. It is possible, the window is just very slim.

I also think he should be interrupted if someone hits him but considering the scene, it's not really Sly who's attacking it's his friend so you'd have to attack him instead of Sly which isn't possible...

Yeah, Sly's interruptability window should last at least until Murray gets going. I can't help but think of poor Nariko's level 1 compared to Sly's. Kai can be one frame away from firing into that firework barrel, but as soon as Nariko's hit, Kai and the barrel are both gone. Sly's level 1 is way too difficult to interrupt because... he can't block or dodge roll?

True, but he also appears to have one of the best counter-attacks in the game and of course the infinite invisibility.

I think the community has been over this enough. It makes up for him not being able to block. Sure, it's a good super and hard to cancel but it can be done.

Watch how he uses his level 1. Some will go invisible so you know it's coming. And you know he's gonna wait for you to be near other opponents. Try baiting predictable players into using their super, then counter. I dodge his lvl1 super a surprising amount of times just by jumping over it.
