@Hoplite-x-Viz the game is more simplified than chivalry however those ‘movesets’ give telegraphed opportunities to switch the initiative or the vice versa. And the fact that you can feint the Combo and change your swing… games a lot of reaction speed and mind games. For instance I have an unblockable overhead strike at the third hit of my combo but it can easily be side stepped however I can fake the overhead and switch it to a slash that chases but deals less damage. I switched my stick to the right to bait a swing there moved it left and feinted left then dashed forward with an overhead strike hitting him. Mind games and reaction speed. Medium high skill ceiling. Of everyone I fought I was the best maybe because I pick up games fairly easy but I beat kyle, homura, Chillin dyln, dubi crazy, river jet, hide yo, gallius, Amongst a plethora of other people. Had a 80% duel win rate end game.
Smokin Sin was good at it too with a 4.0 kdr and a 90% Winrate.
