View Full Version : Is it just me, or do characters switch guard stance at different speeds?

I can guard everything coming my way with the berserker, but I can't get my timing right at all with the conqueror. Peacekeepers and orochi are my bane with the conqueror. Do the heavy classes switch stances slower?

Some classes' guard stance switching are slower than others.

it makes sense as weapons don't have the same weight and classes don't have the same silhouette.

no idea if the actual differences in-game corresponds to this though.

High level play the slowest character get left behind. This should change.

Not sure about the conq but I know Nobushi, Shugoki, and Lawbringer have slower guard stance from left - right an right - left. So character who like hitting the sides like Valkyrie and Peacekeeper can easily **** these fighters up simply because they use polearms that forces them to adjust their hands when switching from right - left or left to right. It's sucks but just have to work with the cards your dealt. Just predict and guard ahead of time so they wont get a free hit because you character isn't fast enough to react on the fly.
