Thanks to a tweet from @Dizzy, there's new info regarding blocking things in Injustice 2.

In regards to punishing within 1-frame windows, NRS has added a buffer window during the last 2 frames of blockstun. This means that, as long as you input your punish normal either on or just before the punishment window, you will get the punish. This also means that you are more likely to get your proper interrupts on safe options but have holes where you can interrupt their next option.

This brings me to the next point, which was revealed in a follow-up tweet. Frame data in the move list uses ONLT the startup frames. A common thing within the FGC as a whole is that the first active frame is included in startup when frame data is compiled. This is purely the startup frames. This means when calculating which normals punish what, add 1 frame to the frame data listed. If that number is equal to or lower than the disadvantage number, then you have your punish. Specials...

And the Top 8 is set for the first week of the War of the Gods series! 479 entrants battled their way through a double elimination bracket, and after 5 and a half hours, the top 8 was forged.

We have an exciting top 8 to look forward to on Tuesday, comprised of a healthy mix of new and returning Injustice players.

Congratulations to:

The first Injustice 2 event was held yesterday evening. Although the tournament only had 13 people it still had its share of ignorance and good matches. Although the word on the street was that the 10th best flash in the world, Sid The Haze wasn't going to be in attendance he did show up and succeeded in heckling the entire scene. But a surprise was in store for everyone as the Flash Main preached to the skies that Flash needed buffs once again.

Meanwhile the complaints about Atroc where in left an right as Indecisive attempted to mix people with the giant red potato. Each time the cat was summoned a sense of grief and despair was felt by the opponent. While the audience just laughed at the stupidity of the trait.

Finally we had the one true struggle. The cupcake master himself Awkward Sloth decided to make it out and play as lame as every lovingly possible. Cupcakes were thrown, guns were shot, and Puppies went rampant. All and all it was lame as shit.
