Exactly, you don’t parry feints. You know why? As I have said many many times: parrying them is not a viable tactic.
Why would you parry against a feinted attack, when you could have dealt damage to them? At that point you are basically forfeiting a better position. There is an opening of weakness – capitalize on it.
Both attacking and correctly defending against a feint punish feints. The feint takes 15 stamina (20 for combo feint), and you parry. Good, now he is 15-20 stamina lower than you.
OR WOULD YOU RATHER DO THIS?
Hit him during his feint, now he has 15-20 less stamina than you, AND he took a hit.
Parrying them is viable, its just not as viable as attacking them. Feints are made to counter parrying, but have a weakness of a vulnerable window to be attacked in, especially with the combo feint change.
So the question is, why won’t you capitalize on a feint by attacking? The refusal to do so is scrub-worthy.
Look dude you’re taking us round in circles.
You have already stated that you DO NOT PARRY FEINTS. So don’t come in here with a sentence like “parrying them is viable”. I mean, how the hell would you know? You don’t do it.
It is frankly shameful that you accuse me of being ‘scrub-worthy’ for ‘refusing’ to use attacking to deal with feinters - can you please quote me where I actually said I refused to learn to do that? You, sir, need to learn to read instead of simply repeating stale and overused arguments. What I actually said was that they seem to betrying to make parrying feints viable by introducing the 0.2s window; I would argue that for LMB feints and overhead feints this is much better. But for stabs it hasn’t really helped at all because the animations are just terrible for most weapons.
This thread is concerned only with pointing out the problem. If TBS think they have made feints parryable, they can think again. I personally do not view attacking as a reliable and consistent way of handling feints. Be honest, it isn’t (though I can imagine if you use a fast weapon it is more reliable). Parrying would be reliable and would only fail when you fail to concentrate - IF the damn system worked properly and stabs weren’t so stupid.
