- No more directional blocking, only right click + aim to block.
- Movement and combat speed set back to base JK2, with some changes in transitions.
- Red style enabled and can chain (max 3 swings).
The reason was that people generally had problems recognizing directions, animations and to react both to timing and direction at the same time. The slow movement and combat speed also was offputting to many friends and didn't seem like the best approach after all with JK2's movement.
The result was setting it back closer to the core, but with manual blocking. It's still challenging because you have to aim your block (like in Chivalry) and the high damage makes it dangerous to mess up.
Maybe a test event would be due soon?
