Well at least I’m not feeling so alone anymore in this. Some other people are finally saying what I’ve experienced. And to say that you need more practice is silly when you’ve put in 20 hrs and still find the same faults. You’ll just start to play round the bugs instead or drop the game entirely.
Don’t defend the game because you like it no matter what. If you don’t experience these issues then that’s good for you but there are apparently quite a few of us that get stumped by these problems.
Increasing my field of view will be my next step for sure because I often do get blindsided by someone wanting an easy kill.
I’m still having issues with hit detection myself. Dishing out and receiving blows sometimes goes completely through the player model not even registering.
As I’ve said in my previous post. There was a large gap between me and my opponent, low ping, I strike dead on target with my pike, nothing happens. He strikes from the same distance with a short sword and I die in one body hit with no previous damage and nobody else around.
This has happened more than once for me to find it a little strange and frustrating.
