Let's talk about SF counter in BnS

So, I normally don't complain about bugs in PvP or anywhere that often, as they are normally miniscule, but this one has caused me to lose countless matches, and I just can't ignore it anymore. I am of course talking about our i-frame counter, and for those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, here's a screenshot of Elbow Smash. 

 

Now, other than the cooldown time being incorrect (6 seconds instead of 9), this is relatively correct. We are supposed to get a 1 second i-frame after Counter, and to be completely honest, the i-frame probably has a success rate of 45%. And I am not exaggerating.

I have lost so many matches due to this i-frame not triggering, noticibly, it happens mostly during Knock Up skills. Ex: I will get a counter off from a sin daze or BD stun, but the i-frame will not go off, and I will be knocked up regardless. This is not the only time this happens, but it is certainly the most noticable and most common situation in which the counter does not go off. 

 

I'm pretty sure the description of the skill on any translation doesn't say "Has a 50% chance to i-frame after counter", and I'm asking that this be fixed soon, as it is very, VERY annoying.

 

Update: So I want to reiterate. This counter procs for a 1.5 second i-frame. It does not say "resists one attack after counter", it does not say "resists one status effect after counter". It specifically states that the user resists damage AND status effects. PERIOD, for 1.5 seconds. If the counter goes off, then the effect needs to follow.

BNS - Upgrade Cost from True Profane Weapon and Infernal Accessory to 45 Endgame Gear

Because there is so much misinformation on the upgrade costs on reddit and so on I feel I have to post this to get everybody on the right path. You copy the spreadsheet and type in your material you already have and put in the current market prices. Now you can see the missing material and the price it would cost to buy them on the market. If you are already at for example true siren weapon just delete the materials above. We confirmed the materials ingame and they should be 99% correct.
