Perhaps it has to do with lag, because lately PVKII, and PVKII alone is lagging terribly.
The shield on a huscarl today was so OP, all he had to do was shield bash me constantly. No skill, no strategy, just tap the left click.
The simple thing to do would be to break the shield, right? Well, that seems pretty impossible.
I can't jump back or outrun the shield, because my blocking stance slows my movement speed down; Keeping me from being able to move away fast enough, and with certain people, the reach of the shield is as long as my HK's two handed sword or longer.
As soon as I go out of blocking mode to jump back or run, I'm bashed and stunned and further can not maneuver away, and don't have enough time to even start an attack because HK's swing is so slow.
The HK's block does absolutely nothing against the shield, it is completely worthless. And if I can't even manage to get far enough to swing at the shield, how am I supposed to break it.
Same person was able to shield bash me, without charging, even when I had my shield out. Perhaps they have played PVKII so much, that they know how to dodge the hitboxes even while being face to face.
Can't say I have that much free time, and I don't think any casual gamer would either.
Maybe this works flawlessly in testing, and it is just when there is lag.
If the shield system is not glitched or OP, then it would be nice if someone could explain what I could do in that situation against that player, cause it actually ruins the fun of the game, when someone can just tap left click on you, and you don't get the fun of parrying or actually playing.
