Riposte Animation Skip

2 0

Was a dueling an alpha friend of mine earlier and was curious as to how he was accelling his weapon so fast. He told me he was doing a riposte "animation skip" exploit in which he parried in the opposite direction of the attack but angled his own in attack in the same direction as the original enemy's attack. I only have a clip of him doing it while footdragging, but you can imagine how potent it would be with accells. The enemy parries, then almost immediately the animation snaps into the weapon being inches from your head. Here it is.

As far as I can tell there's nothing special going on here. He's using a battle axe and was close enough to you (since you're not footworking) to make his accel very hard to read, and then he dragged it. The counter to this (outside of superhuman reflexes to actually hard read it) is to attempt to chamber the attack, and if the chamber doesn't immediately go off then you ftp.

yeah this is one of the reasons dueling in this game is trash atm.

it's not a bug though I'm willing to wager riposting has always fucked with animations.

There's two different riposte animations based on parry angle I believe. One is more like a .jpeg while the other is more twisty.

Don't mean to split hairs here but if it's not the desired behavior then it is a bug. And since that animation doesn't seem desirable at all, I would call that a bug.
