It's not a matter of being a "hero" man, and yea, I do play often with half damage to player. It's that enemies are always way too accurate when it comes to melee and it's silly to think you can always hit someone that flies past you, you'd get lucky hit at most. If there's 10 guys in a bunch, each and every one of them will land a hit on you, that's silly. In WB you had a bit leeway, here you're dead instantly, no matter if it's looter, t3 troop or elite, because all weapons deal too much damage and everyone is skilled equally in terms of damage and swing speed (another of my gripes with this game). And there's also a matter of some ranged hits that are really, really suspicious at times. Like few hours ago, I got shot by bandit horse archer, pretty far away from them, with shield up, in my uncovered leg (was foolish of me to not use big kite shield) all that while running like lightning. And you know how inaccurate horse archers are here, can't hit a barn if it stands still in front of them. Eaten a harpoon soon after that, pretty far away from sea raider that threw it, smack dab in my side, with my shield up, full speed again. It's like most times they can't hit a barn, but in certain moments they get a moment of clarity and suddenly start to lead their projectiles better than any player could. Even though I dislike the amount of realism that came with BL, I can live with that, but this stinks of something wrong with targeting.
