If your trying to open up advanced turtles why not start with one of their key tools? Just saying. It would be better for the many casual players.

Because zerks and kenseis would become unbeatable.

No, you can't remove it. How else are you going to bait a light parry by canceling your heavy and guard breaking?

Parry cancel is when, for a basic example, your opponent throws a faint heavy to try to bait you to parry so he can parry you. You throw a heavy to parry but notice he canceled his attack so you cancel your Parry heavy so as to not get parried by your opponent.

It would actually be better for baiting.

Why remove something that already has a counter tactic to it? If they're cancelling their parry attempt there's things you can do to punish that:
- GB them, because they can't counter GB while feinting a heavy.
- Hard/soft feint your heavy into a light depending on character.
- Soft feint into bash if your character has that.
- Hard feint into a zone if you have access to a 400/500ms one.

I don't see the problem here. The gameplay depth shouldn't be dumbed down to cater to a casual skill level if the solution is simply for the casual player to learn more about the game and what options they have available to them. Otherwise we get completely unecessary changes that remove gameplay for no good reason, like the removal of minion kill animations in Dominion because it was easier than teaching new/casual players that they can use locked on attacks on minions.

You cancel a heavy to GB, not to parry their heavy. On a higher level people don't let their (parry) heavy fly, they cancel it, because they realized they got baited. On the other hand, if you GBd you would have gotten it.
