The amount of block delay depends on the current position of your weapon. If you are attacking with a left-swing it will obviously take longer to block a right hit. However, if you are in neutral position it will still be relatively fast. That being said, it is not entirely true that all the ''skill'' is taken away. If you want to be sure to block a hit, you shouldn't be so aggro. Another way of saying it is that being overly aggressive (by feint spamming a lot) will be punished by this block-delay system.
