There’s ghost strikes,
I haven’t experienced them, though I know they exist, and they’ve already said they’ve found a possible cause and it’ll be (hopefully) fixed in the the 1b patch. But as I said, I haven’t experienced them so I can’t really comment on how gamebreaking or bad they are.
alt slash bug,
What bug? :?
I’ve never noticed anything odd or wrong with alt-swings.
parrying attacks from behind,
I believe this is a consequence of also being able to hit someone with your weapon’s model inside of their body. If you couldn’t parry that the game would be incredibly more inbalanced. There are several examples of attacks NEEDING to be able to parried or they could be exploited continuously. i.e. Certain overheads. If parrying was as described (blocking the tip) you’d have to either try to backpeddle (no good) or actually turn around and parry the tip that is now behind your character’s head.
Plus, that’s hardly gamebreaking. I’d prefer if they put in a back parry but I don’t see what the big deal is with getting parried very infrequently from behind. Not too mention desync which could make it look like the person is facing away from you when they actually turned very quickly to parry. I do it often if I’m fighting someone and they start backpeddling for no reason.
parrying while attacking, attacks going through parry to count a few.
I have never seen the first one (unless you meant feint-parry, which isn’t a bug nor is it parrying while attacking) and the second is fixed. At least, it is for me. I’ve noticed a drastic improvement on parrying consistency when people have a ping close to mine with the patch.
I don’t understand why any of these are such huge issues. They all seem rather minor to me. Have you ever played a game made by GamersFirst? Plenty of MMOS, full of terrible, terrible bugs. To me, it seems a lot of the people who complain constantly about bugs just don’t have that much experience playing newer MMOs rather than those that have been out for years and have already been polished.
I paid full-price for Diablo III and couldn’t even play it for a few days because of server errors. Then there was the false bans on hundreds of people (thankfully I got mine reversed). This is from Blizzard, the de facto king of the MMO. How is it that Torn Banner is doing so terribly when I have NEVER bought a computer game that was bug-free?
Hell, it’s not like they’ve pulled a War Z or anything.
I’m not trying to say the game is perfect, I just think most people’s tones are WAY too overdramatic. Half of the bugs are very minor inconveniences at most, and not in any way game breaking.
Except for the T-poses. Which I’m not sure if they are fixed completely.
