View Full Version : Defense/Turtle Meta Video

06-30-2017, 02:25 AM
If anyone ever has a question about what the defense/turtle meta is, just direct them to this video. This is textbook rage inducing For Honor. Like always, i'm welcome to critiques, but I don't se any other way this fight could have ended. I am now not looking forward to ranked :(

Pretty much why i given up on playing anything else than dominion.

Is that why there's 3 Italian men curb stomping a hole in you and knocking your teeth out with right hooks?

Not really, i got to point when i queue into team with 3+ centurions, i just give up and quit, because i know the game is gonna be horrendously unfun no matter if i win or lose.

The amount of attacks you forced him to block should have killed him long before the 02:00 mark.

More block damage plz.

The worst thing was him getting Revenge in a Duel. Should never be a thing. Hopefully the changes they announced yesterday that are coming in the next patch will stop that happening again.

Nice video. More than any long rant about the defense meta, it clearly shows the problem, and gives hints about how it could be solved.

Well done Shugoki, you are the legend here, not this ****ty Raider who won't go to Vallhalla anytime soon.

Some people say " just (not dodge unfortunately) feint"

So, yes just feint !!!!

What if:

Insted of 5mins. Duels should be 2-3min. If no one wins within the time. round restarts or something?

Kinda forces people to attack more.

I don't think so. If the result would be tie then TrueTurtle would just try to outwait opponent. ;)

06-30-2017, 02:23 PM
Then no one wins? = waste of time

06-30-2017, 04:12 PM
Nah. Some people will troll you until you quit. Never underestimate how far people will go to piss you off.

Sorry you're having a bad experience in matches like this. It's a struggle that I definitely understand, and wish we could provide a quicker solution to. It's a long running thing that we're working to improve, so hopefully we'll have something more on the subject soon. Great playing BTW.

If I understand right, revenge is disabled in ranked/tournament mode, so you could theoretically have chipped him down, but yeah, that was awful to watch. One thing I would mention though, is that it doesn't look like he even attempted to parry once, so in that case I might say let one or two of those unblockable heavies fly, and see how much he tries to parry then. One unblockable will take him down to close to half health at that point anyway. But yeah, there needs to be chip damage on blocked lights, and lots more chip damage on blocked heavies.

Painful to watch.

"Defense Patch®" only in season 3. The 1.09 deploy in 13th July, and even with some minor points that can help break the turtle shell, we still need to wait.

I think I will only back to daily sessions when the ranked mode come to live, when we problably will have the "Defense Patch®". For Honor will finally let me fight for the Diamond Tier on HotS.

Still believing in the Devs and that FH will be the medieval fighting game we desire, but I'm tired of wait and face situations like the one in the video.
