Lightsaber Combat in HVV is not Fun
After a couple of months of not playing I hopped back onto HVV after hearing about the updates made to saver combat. I have to say that I am not very pleased with the changes that were made. Mainly the changes to how blocking and staggering (or lack there of) work. I truly believe that the old mechanics were superior to the ones present today, but that doesn’t go without saying it could have used some tweaks, although not as drastic as revamping the entire system. If the mechanics were reverted to the old ones I believe all that needed to be done was fix the way the stagger worked since so many people didn’t like it. Maybe when two heroes attack at the same time then they both stagger backwards that way there isn’t as many button mashing complaints. If you were to get stun locked in a corner or something you could use your attack to stagger the both of you backwards and use that distance to dash out of the corner you were stuck in and regather your bearings. Now being staggered would take more stamina than a regular attack but that alternative is surely better than dying while holding the block button and not blocking at all. If anyone has any additions to this, I encourage you to reply because I loved the stagger and I feel it added a layer of depth to the gameplay and it seems too simple and not as satisfying now that it is gone. I also feel something could be done with blocking activating a stagger on the opponent such as a perfectly timed block. Just a thought.
