Close skills

Postby icyman » Fri Jul 01, 2011 1:21 am

Today I saw a match. Geishart kills lebeau to double hit two units, killing them, triggers lebeau's close skill, which hits guardian, which hits lebeau again, who hits guardian again... until guardian is dead and lebeau is at some crazy negative hp (both closes). So close skills can trigger after counters multiple times.
Can someone explain why lebeau kept on damaging guardian? Why was the close skill queued again after lebeau got damaged?
I would like to get some hypotheticals too (ways to exploit this). I know that with burning air, you can potentially get close skills to trigger, then slot 9 liz can revive everyone so the skills can be used later again. Now the thing is... is it possible to have close skills (like zu) hit other already dead guys and have their close skills trigger again?

I believe this is a bug. While lebaue should have been able to take the guardian hit after his close skill, his close skill should not have triggered again.
Needs a new sig, but haven't come up with one.
So here is a message about how I need a new sig but haven't come up with one :D

i experienced this before, because close skill will trigger when it check after every hit, if hp is zero or less it will go off, counter otherwise will check while hp is more than zero, so its stop once guardian is close, basically close skill works like counter at hp zero or below. hope that helps.

im not sure whether it is intended that way, but i have discussed this in chat long ago.

This is a bug close skills should not trigger more than once whilst hp remains below zero.

It certainly didn't used to work this way, when we did a bunch of tests for the stack resolution page. Would love a replay on this so I can show Japan.

Actually, other close skills may not trigger more close skills.
I remember a match that had wounding sword and zu. Zu didn't trigger again after wounding hits zu. Someone with 2 wounding swords can go test this.
Counters can def trigger multiple times.
So close close won't but counter close and counter counter will.
