...that we're 5 seasons in and this game is still basically "For Guardbreak: Press square to win"

lol, not that bad but i do think that if you Counter Guard Break somebody they need to be at a set distance they can't GB you again.

Or just give it a cool down... GB doesn't have enough trade off for the reversal. I think a counter GB should result in an actual GB not just a resist or a push off. You try to gb and I reverse it, it should award me with a GB.

I discussed CGB with Ackturi in his thread, actually: https://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1836965-Buff-counter-GB

He's right, on successful CGB you need to have some sort of hyperarmor/superarmor that will shield you from ganks for a split second. I like his idea.

How about the change that u See the GB coming from the side even if u dont locked your sight at him and u can combine it with the hyperarmor idea

Playing mostly 4v4 dominion, spamming GB on somebody is just asking to get destroyed. Successful or not, a GB will build up that revenge meter pretty quick.

I do not play a lot of Duels, but from what I can remember, I have not been in a situation where somebody will just constantly spam GB.

More like parry and then press [insert platform neutral button here] to win ;)

I wouldn't say it's that bad though since you can counter GB most of the time. I would say the GB icon should appear for external GB attempts in team fights though. The parry changes will remove the guarranteed GB from a parry which will alleviate a lot of the issues around GB as such a strong punish. This game is based around getting satisfying executions to end your opponent "rightly" and GB is the primary tool for that so I wouldn't expect the devs to completely remove it or make it insanely easy to punish. Selling executions bring in a lotta steel :D

I still couldn't bring myself to buy this execution (Warden). I mean, I like this meme and all, but... not in For Honor... :( I like my Warden gritty, realistic, and serious. Can't help but feel slight guilt because buying it would give tribute to Skallagrim, who initially made this meme viral. I really like the guy.

I might eventually buy it just for owning it.

Yeah, definitely. GB prompts should appear on external attacks as well. Though I guess in the end, it's not like you can react properly; GB prompts are still faster than even lights. In the midst of getting ganked, this could possibly amount to 'visual spam' (lotsa icons and prompts around you). Though I still think GB prompts for external attacks should be visible.

The title of this thread is every girls description of my "preforming" skills.

Yeah, I've died so much from that method in a 2v1 lol
