hey guys, so my old post seems to have disappeared but still getting royally screwed over in tourney's. heck last round block seems to have been disabled entirely. previous tourney i still won, but who was the most difficult guy in the whole match? some wanderer that didnt even have single handed skills but who was somehow nastier then the king of valdia?

why is this this both trying to cheat you and why are the npc's involved inconsistent to the point of not reflecting their traits whatsoever?

it's because armor is useless in this game. Lords are super easy to beat in tournaments.

Veteran militia are actually the hardest fights in the arena.

I seem to swing like a rusty gate despite having high one handed and athletics skills. It makes it hard to get hits on the faster opponents.

Whomever makes it to the final round seems to get a boost to their skills. You can take down someone easily in early rounds, but if you face them again in the final round, they seem to fight with extraordinary skill.

Armor does make some difference in the arena. It's just a very small difference. I can one-hit opponents in rags. It usually takes more than one hit to fell someone in top tier armor.

hell tourneys for me are so bad this last one my character literally just didnt follow commands. i would press block he would stand there and take a hit. i swing my sword it goes right through them. i physically dodge his next shot, but when he gets his retaliatory strike (which came up twice as fast as anything im ever able to do) it went right through my block a second time.

it doesnt happen every time, but ya tourney's are straight up fubar. i mean holy crap.

just had yet another tourney where my newest companion who has no skills in single hand just tried to rapid fire me. if i didnt have shield bash there would have been nothing i could do because even when he was making slow attacks and me fast attacks he still could get them off faster then i could with high skills. this is awful.

I have occasionally noticed when fighting the same characters that sometimes they'll not try to block at all and let me 2-3 hit them, and other times they'll actually block pretty well and even feint sometimes. Usually my only issue with tournaments is that on the first exchange during a round, their hit will go directly through my shield's block. I've never noticed it happen during a battle but pretty often during tournaments and it's a pain if I'm doing the tourney at low health to begin with.

Blunt weapons makes it even worse, ignore almost all of what little defense anyone has.

Yeah they **** the bed on making skills for melle weapons matter. It probably has to do with making MP units plausibly close in performance and then the absurdity of using that same type of setup for single player units.

That said, just move right and swing right to left, you'll usually win.

Another issue is the chamber-block-hit-you-all-in-one-swing maneuver. I can see no way that the player can replicate that move. It gets used against me at least once a tournament when there are sword fights.

Sometimes the top edge of my shield seems to be rather porous. I have been hit right through the top of the shield at least a dozen times in my current campaign. This might be a case of the collision mesh not being quite the same size as the shield itself.

I dont experience this. The AI only seems to chamber block by accident. If you are playing on Challenging I recommend that you turn it off. The AI is unreasonably tough in challenging.

Yes, this is a problem I have had ever since release - the players shield has broken hitboxes or collision and AI have enormous shield hitboxes that you simply cannot hit around.
