As you get older the frame rate of your eyes actually drops. The pathways get more inefficient so it takes more time for your eyes to talk to your brain, and you eyes just aren't as sharp as they were anyway.kk, np. I actually do not think there's a difference in WB and BL in blocking and as said I do get my fair share of swings in my face. It's surely still reliant on some reflexes, but for me it's mostly a mindset thing. If I go into a battle reminding myself that the enemy has a sword too, I mostly remember to track their swing animation and can reasonably well block. If I don't then yea, also a peasant can do damage.
By middle age you actually lose the ability to track moving objects at anywhere near the level you can in your early 20s as a result. This is one of the many reasons that football and baseball are young man's sports.
So you can block a little. Great! I'm seriously glad you can. Meanwhile I've got old man eyes and I can't even see the attack coming before it's already hit me. An when I do see it I can't tell in a split second if it's an overhand chop or a right side chop because the animations are similar and I can't pick up on the difference in time.
If I worked on it I might be able to anticipate a little better but my bottom line is the same as many pro auto blockers. I didn't come to this game to be a master swordsman. I came to this game as an open world RPG with first person combat elements. Not having autoblock closes a lot of playstyles for me that would be open in Warband and I don't like it because there's literally no reason for it.
And autoblock will still be hacked into multiplayer whether it's in singleplayer or not.Autoblock in multiplayer where it shouldn't be using a trainer to activate the autoblock code was super common in warband. Good riddance.
I guarantee you the code for autoblock is already somewhere in bannerlord's code, commented out. it would take a couple hours of decommenting and a few hours of testing and the hack will be live for anyone who wants it.
Even without that, it's not going to take very long for some script kiddie to cobble together a hack mod.
In other words there is literally no point to banning autoblock in single player. It won't even solve the problem you want it to solve.
