Block damage is a gaming term that refers to the damage inflicted on a player who is blocking an opponent's special attack. It often occurs in fighting video games that feature 1 on 1 combat such as Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat.
Block damage is more commonly known as "chip damage." It may be used as a tactic to defeat an opponent by slowly chipping away at a player's health. However, gamers look down upon this tactic since it is boring and doesn't require much skill.
