Shields are fine, git gud. Having a held block that is equally effective as parry with 0 consequence is retarded and OP. Sorry you actually have to be decent at the game to perform well tbh.

Yes shields are fine. Now we need balanced parry.

When i told you "stop crying in this server and write a post on forum" i meant more than actually crying here.

Shields are good but you still need to have some skill to use them, deal with it or at least give us some arguments

At least Analgrinder has a specific change he wants to see implemented, where as you aren't even saying what you want done to shields...

But the weapon pole shows 65% of voters don't even use them, so maybe they have an issue? I don't think most of those people will use them no matter what anyway though.

i've said this before but I don't think held block is worthwhile at top-level play, imo shields need some 1vX utility to make them viable for skilled players

not that shield users are noobs or anything, but they're kinda handicapped when fighting a really good player using a GS or other 2-hander

I think one of the biggest problems with shields, is the fact that you can spam feints and chamber feints all the bloody time. Doesn't help that the animations looks wonk either.

ya, mack would be OP if it were anywhere near like it used to be. And if you add back in/nerf stuff like raise drop delay to compensate it will just make shield feel bad to play and very boring.

Ples have a GRAPHIC CONTENT or TRIGGER WARNING in your post before you mention ideas which could potentially bring back traumatic memories/feelings.

We can't really speak for all shields imo. Kite seems fine and balanced to me but the target and heater are awful to use.
