What I think is essential is to have the up/down swings with bayonette to be different. Right now they are the same, making the melee feel less skillful as you cant really pick the right swing for the right situation.
They really need to make them different. It could be that the upper swing is slower, has shorter/longer reach, is faster but lower dmg etc. etc. There are many alternatives and one has to be implemented to make the combat truly enjoyable.
Can also note to all people who say I and others want a change cause we are struggling with it, I am not one bit. I am doing far better with this system then in the MM one but I am not enjoying this one as much as I could and I simply fear that I may grow sick of it after a while, which would be sad considering how much I feel I could truly enjoy this. I and others are "complaining" because we just want to have a better experience then we currently are having.
