It never felt as bad with shields.Block delay my bruh.
I did press right mouse click, and it would have blocked a melee attack, but because throwing weapons are so fast, it caught me by surprise.You should have blocked either way. Had he hit your shield, he would have been left completely defenseless. I don't see the point you are trying to prove.
I know it sounds like I'm making excuses, but I can record some videos and test it out, at some point.
The point of my first post was to say that readying throwing weapons was too fast pre-1.5.
