so that it goes through a blocking shield? It's kinda like a crossover attack in Street Fighter in that you have to block in the opposite direction to safely block it. What's the term used to refer to that technique?
Regular dead angle attacks are awesome and can stay because visually they make some sense. The physics of an about-face dead angle WoG from the front is straight-up bizarre in that it functionally causes a force wave to inexplicably move inwards from behind the caster's opponent rather than outwards from the caster. Dead-angle WoGs are therefore not awesome and need to go.
Plus, saying that it should be left un-corrected because it's easy to deal with only serves to underscore the fact that it is aberent to begin with.
Well with the amount of WoG spammers out there, the latency and pure luck can generally land a hit or two, regardless of well timed rolls. I don't think there needs to be an additional window for brainless AoE attacks to land.
