If you are going to allow 1h to be nearly unblockable (the stun delay aka no parrying = longer than it takes for 1hander to attack you more than once, so you can get chain stunned with zero chance of blocking once you get hit once). Perhaps this is not the case on LAN but it most certainly is on even 60 ping.
It doesn’t make any sense whatsoever that 1handers are a 2-3 shot. They should be 4-5 shot if they are going to be able to chain stun people. (talking about damage to a knight)
Patch is decent with the balance fixes, but it honestly makes no sense to have 1handers do NEARLY as much damage as 2handers, and FAR more damage than a spear.
The biggest fix would simply be to make it require 1-2 more hits to kill with these OP 1handers.
After a couple hours playing the game after not having played for over 3 weeks, I remember why I got “sick” of this game. Too many people playing 1hander it just wasn’t any fun.
