Do read that this is NOT the exploit where the Goliath is Leap Smashing with the Rock in his hands, in this exploit he actually hits the ground first followed by a rock immediately after skipping half the animation.
A lot of Goliath players have the power to down a player in two seconds. One of our teammates play’s customs as monster against us and he actually can bring quite some thrilling matches against us. Yesterday we let him play Goliath and lost the first few matches against him. We were actually quite shocked to see our trapper go down in 2 seconds straight. A stage 2 Goliath downing one of our best hunters in two moves. This can happen sure, but shortly after that another person goes down, same trick. Full health to nothing in two seconds. He ended up winning the fight so I asked him if he was power abusing, he said yes
The trick he does is Leap Smash and spam the Rock Throw button like a idiot. When leap smash hits the ground, the rock follows pretty much right after it skipping half of the animation time. While the player is still being knocked back by the leap smash he gets a rock in it’s face and dies, if he manages to survive that combo, one melee hit will finish the job. The same monster player player does this in domes and manages to kill any player he hits with this combo. If you don’t go with Sunny or Hank against him you, you can’t do anything against it.
We then asked him to stop abusing (we’ve seen this trick a LOT in skirmish) and guess what? We actually stood a chance again. Goliath damage output suddenly was normal again. We could actually dodge again.
Please please fix this, Goliath Rock throw is already a powerhouse, pretty unfair to make it a exploitable chain attack with the second power house attack Leap Smash.
