Taking a shield 1v1 is suicide as you simply CANT win the stamina war

Dunno if it's been patched yet.

I haven't bothered testing stamina but I assumed all the axe changes would be gone. Why would they patch held block again? Not that I care, shields are a 2 point cosmetic upgrade and anything else will get them nerfed.

The rapier stabs are super lame, no flinching and damage on parry/chamber sucks the fun out of it. 1 shot potential and high hp should be enough. I don't even bother going after them if they decide to turtle up, it's more fun to play it as a TDM at that point and let the tryhards win.

The archers were hiding in a safezone but I ran up on them
A cluster of 5 noob archers shouldn't be able to deal so much damage

You ran into a 1v5, plz nerf because you're a melee chad.

To be truly viable, shields will need an exit strategy once the block is up that doesn't count on your enemy's incompetence. Until then, people can enjoy using them in team games or to win nooblish slugfests.

So nothing has really changed. Honestly, I'll take a slightly longer parry window over what shields were like after 100 kick buffs. Any mongoloid could spam kick and never lose initiative because kicks clashed instead of rewarding you for reading a kick correctly.

That one guy hit the godlike 2h master with a crossbow in a duel once and won, that should not be allowed. It's almost as cringy as using any weapon that isn't longsword.

I don't mean imbalanced, sure you can counter them.
But the isuse lies with the amount (or rather the lack of thereof) of efforts necessary for them to be effective. Someone who is worse than you at the game can still get better results because of how easy it is to stab spam with either a long range weapon like the spear or a very fast one like the rapier.
Both these weapons are very frustrating to play against.
Losing to someone with a greatsword, an axe or a mace doesn't feel bad. He outplayed us, fine, we died, it's okay. Losing to some idiot with a rapier, though? We all know how frustrating it can be. Especially when they start doing this right after: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BAQakz59D_8

Point being: f*ck stab weapons.

Mace has the most obnoxious stab in the game, closely followed by all the axes. All stabs are within 25 ms of 350 ms release time, stabby weapons are gimped.

I'm sorry archers scarred you for life in chiv. Randomly parrying arrows/projectiles you weren't even aware of isn't very skilled either and it looks retarded.

Anything below the belt/above the neck should absolutely never be deflected. Devs are still butthurt from chiv archers so 2h having a pavise shield on parry is intended.

I like how every idea for shields is slightly above removing them outright.
