Thanks for the info there. It was what I was hoping for. Still hoping they might make a separate autoblock for shields and for weapons, just because.I'll be serious for the first time in this thread. Realistically, Taleworlds is planning on having autoblock for SP but is possibly still being worked on due to the combat changes.
Just to clarify what I'm saying is just speculation but there's SO many unfinished things in this game I really think autoblock is under that section.Thanks for the info there. It was what I was hoping for. Still hoping they might make a separate autoblock for shields and for weapons, just because.
Weapons sure, don't see shield blocking happening unless it's tracking arrows, still an unnecessary feature in the game. Just keep to camera movement imoThanks for the info there.

Well personally, when I got to the last match in a Tournament and got my shield splintered with an axe, I was quite happy to just be able to time the block input appropriately with my enemy's attack timing, instead of suddenly needing to match direction as well as timing. It's a definite quality of life upgrade to have autoblock. And let's not kid ourselves, most of the "blocking" people are doing without autoblock enabled is simple avoidance or preemptive attack. I don't think most people really try to "block every single incoming attack", though I'm sure there are some people in MP that can do that perfectly, it is rather difficult to match not only the direction of an enemies attack as well as the appropriate timing within a fraction of a second, and that's just 1 v 1. I think we can all agree that as awesome as it is to become good enough to be a melee god and never get scratched even while armed with just a knife, it really just makes sense to bring back autoblock. I think what meager stat changes you allege them to possibly bring about because of autoblock would be an alright sacrifice for you to make considering you made the sacrifice already in Warband.
Still waiting on that video.
If blocking is that easy you can post a video of you blocking the trainers at the Training Field with a 2h sword.
Yu know what? Respect. You came through, and that's fair dues.It pains me that I even have to do this. Veteran Hit me twice or so, i'm not perfect but i'm willing to work at blocking better daily. Don't need a babysitter known as autoblock.
Respect for trying new things. That's the beauty of this game is the way to approach melee if you cannot block everything. It adds so much more to the game as a whole and that is what i've been stressing so much. The learning curve is very very high I agree absolutely. But the achievement to develop your own style of fighting or becoming a decent blocker is what this game shines at in my opinion. Props to ya on the tourney win get some more xd
anything less isn't the ideal true experience.
