OK I am really deeply embarrassed to confess that after about 1 year of CSI sparring, I am still unclear about this (among lots of other things!). So can anyone give me the definitive answer to any or all of the following linked questions about combos?

If A starts a combo but immediately hits B's block, A will be stunned (and B will lose some stamina); however…

1) does A’s combo continue anyway?
2) if B counters (say with a kick) while A is stunned, will B risk suffering damage from the rest of A’s combo?
3) does the combo continue to root A to the spot, perhaps allowing B to get a combo in?
4) does any of this vary depending on the weapons?
5) am I the only one who fights better after a major dose of chocolate?

Personally I rarely if ever use combos (one reason I adore the Taketori), but I do get whacked by them from time to time, so it would be good to know what I am up against.

I suppose I should just ask a friend to test all this out with me, but I've run out of choccie...*chokes back a sob of desperation*

1) does A’s combo continue anyway?
No, I have tested this with the Tak, Ji-Geon and Sun... they all stop the combo sequence once they are stunned reguardless if it is a auto-combo or trible combo. Or just a double strike, in the case of the Tak. During testing, I have let the first strike in, of an triple combo, and blocked the second strike and the combo sequence stops.

2) if B counters (say with a kick) while A is stunned, will B risk suffering damage from the rest of A’s combo?
No, as I have mentioned the combo stops completely. The animations do not continue if you have stunned your opponent so there is no damage to be taken during that stun period.

3) does the combo continue to root A to the spot, perhaps allowing B to get a combo in?
No, the stunned avatar can move or block.

4) does any of this vary depending on the weapons?
Not based on the 3 weapons I have choosen to test

5) am I the only one who fights better after a major dose of chocolate?
I have never tested this. I can't even remember what chocolate tastes like :)

GAH!!! I read the original post when I was at work, and meant to post a response when I got home, but I forgot :(

Thanks for the response JulieAnne!

Thanks JulieAnne, that's really helpful - too bad about the chocolate though.
