If you get hit in the air is because chains are fucking broken.
Vertical hit boxes in this game are stupid as hell. Hammer aerials getting body blocked by their allies 5 feet under them is not good game design. Chainbaldes flipping over ragetail's horizontal tail swing, and getting hit anyways is not good game design.
Chainbaldes aren't even fucking safe, I can kill rezakiri without taking any damage, while hugging his body the entire time so I never loose out on damage. Complete damage immune rolls: that's safe.
But if I wanna dodge his laser spin on chains, either I'm jumping off a cliff, or just flying the fuck out the entire arena with my 40 dashes.
