Zealot, after hours of testing, I’m afraid Jackbaldy is right. It’s not clipping or whatever, it’s player’s fault. You HAVE to look more away from the center or you get hit. Same thing happens with shield.
POOP, you bring a tear to my eye bro. Sniff Someone who is understanding sniff what actually happens in the game! I’m proud of you for not spewing out non-sense, but you’ve clearly noted what’s going on when blocking at close range.
What Jackbaldy has stated is 100% true and not only are his examples descriptive to understanding why difficulty occurs at close range, but also backs up this fact with a quote from Tibberius concluding to the same result.
I’ve had this exact question at some point on blocking. Once you understand to use movement to block towards the end of a weapon, since at close range it’ll hit your flank, blocking at a close range will be easier provided that you understand why this happens.
