Didn’t they change the feint window? Like you can’t feint that far into windup anymore. It at least feels like it’s easier to spot feints now. Crazy mousedragging also seems a bit changed, and while blocking is still fuzzy, it at least seems a tad more reliable.
However still a lot of people hacking, and they are rarely being called out (The difference between being good and a 5-10% speedhack CAN be hard to see). I mean people with 60 ping on a good server who consistently have desynced attacks (slight speedhack), and are almost impossible to block compared to everyone else. There even seems to be an auto-parry out now, some of these guys can only and I mean ONLY be hit during release, or past the feint window in windup.
I usually do well and get a kd of 2-3+ most games, and have 150 hours ingame now, so this isn’t whining. Just be aware that there are more people than you think with “special copies” of the game :P Ran into an entire clan some days ago where every member were playing fishy as hell.
