How dare you two compare the likes of Mr.Grinder to such rookies in the craft.

ANAL GRINDER is the spectacle of human perseverance and ingenuity, he will never be forgotten like all these pretenders.

ANAL GRINDER was possibly the greatest troll of this decade. This new guy is just genuinely incapable of thinking.

I take it back. You have shown me the truth. Gods shall not be compared to some rabble like this other guy.

The thing about ANAL GRINDER is that, especially as ANAL ERROR, he was persistent but ultimately harmless, inoffensively requesting the same thing over and over again without a hint of malice.

He is a wholesome and tenacious man.

and sometimes he baited us by talking about other topics, and when he got our attention, he struck again.

How about reducing the backpedal speed of shield users when the shield is held up? This makes it easier to kick them if they keep the shield up and forces shield players to time blocks more.

Sure, why not just give 2h elitists Dhalsim's legs.

What did this Anal_Grinder keep asking for? Out of curiosity.

He preached a doctrine only revealed through double human sacrifice. Then and only then can you understand.

You and peacerer must slit each other’s throats at the exact same time.

It’s the only way.

He'll flinch and you'll have initiative. Follow up with a combo.

the absolute state of shield threads

Adding kick stun was pretty retarded. I've only been kick stunned once since implementation and that was because I was eating mace stab feints from a skilled opponent... the irony though, was Champ kick stunned me and didn't have enough time to get a slash in... so in many ways it's as though kick stun doesn't exist and we have normal kick... where kick ends the duel for stamina reasons, not because it gives a free hit (but at my ping it will usually give a free hit.) Noobs will still get raped by kick stun though and it's not like noobs needed a nerf.... sooooo.... Why did kick stun get added again?

Overall shield balance though is significantly improved by the other changes. Shield gets stammed out consistently by exec/maul but this is to be expected... more stamina buff would be nice for shields but it's no longer as bad as before... but losing stamina by getting kicked when trying to get in 1h range can still seal the fate of the shield user.

I think a slightly smaller parry box would be the best way to continue shield balance but the recent changes are adequate. I get side stabbed or waterfalled fair and square, where as before nothing got through... but sometimes I misread where an attack goes and still get rewarded with an ez block.

Lower delay is gay. In duels or 1v1 it still feels like a trap when going to punish a missed attack or when you want to fore go your riposte to morph/feint. If I use BS 1h I can ez someone with BS cheese, I can parry, not riposte then go to feint/morph or accel brainlessly. But with BS/shield I can't feint/morph without risking getting out right gambled by even slow 2h that backstep or getting gamble kicked by someone who knows 1 kick may end the duel for me AND if their gamble fails they only take 1h damage... which is only really threatening when mace is in play. Ironically most of the hits I land using BS/AS and shield, especcially in 1vX is because the X started spamming the stupid shield user who only has a 1h. Get tons of assists when I use shield in teams.

Flinched parry and flinched block HAVE TO GO. Flinched parry is frustrating because it's inconsistent and when it goes down during multiple hits it stays down. Flinched block feels totally unfair because I have to turtle behind a tiny piece of metal while using only 1h while enemies spam from all sides... Despite using a 1h weapon meant specifically to gamble and steal initiative... I can't do that because of raise/lower delays. When I eventually get side hit or flanked by a polearm/spear/halberd or even qstaff, the shield comes down and it won't go backup. Shield mechanics defeat the purpose of a shield.

I DO NOT BOTHER WITH DOUBLE PARRY because if the second parry fails for ping or a mis read then everyone gets a swing in and I die. Better off trading the people around me instead of raging over flinched parries.
