War enemy attack rate

Lately I have been experiencing multiple return attacks per single tile move of my own. Today during a War fight, every move I made was returned by 3-5 attacks by enemy characters. It didn’t matter whether I hit on a combo or not.

This also happened a few times in the last Challenge Event. Cabin Boy Peters even got off two special attacks in a row once.

This doesn’t happen every fight.

This seems odd. Anybody else experiencing something similar?
