    Can't take this much longer.

    I started playing For Honor about three weeks ago, in the middle of November. I was immensely attracted to playing as Centurion, being a huge Roman history buff, and I enjoyed my experience playing the game... at first. For the past week and a half, though, I've been absolutely miserable.

    I cannot play this game. Ever since entering a higher skill bracket, I've spent 75% of my playtime getting absolutely creamed by my opponents. Whether it be duels, brawls, dominion, I just cannot handle myself. Sometimes I put up a bit of a fight (On a REALLY good day), but other times I'm just pathetic. Utterly useless.

    This has affected my ability to enjoy the game. I'm just despondent, I'm not happy when I play. I know it's petty, and that winning isn't everything, but I'm just so sick of being bad. I want to be good at this game. I don't know how much more of this punishment I can take.

    If anybody has any advice, I'd be in your debt. I want to keep playing For Honor, and I especially want to keep playing Centurion. Any solution that doesn't involve me switching to another class will save this game for me. Please. I'm close to just uninstalling and moving on. What a waste of money.

    Whenever things get like this for me I just play against bots for a while. I go to youtube to see how other people play my character to learn some things, then I try it out in duels/bots.

    If youre good on knowing your kit and the opponents kit, sometimes you just need to be super patient when you fight, dont go for the full combo etc itll help with people being able to read you.

    Sometimes recording when you play is good so you can go back and see how you were tricked or how you messed up. Well thats helpful for me at least. If its cause of dominion, and specifically terrible teammates, just take a good break from it and do duels (this I have to do often enough). Hope the experience improves.

    Welcome to the spam meta. What I do is go to the practice section and fight my hardest opponent at level 3 or I'll pick a character that is over used like Shaolin today and focus my attention on them. When my reactions seem to be fast enough to turtle with them I know I'm able to play dominion properly.
    Breach feels easier cuz the ganking is less which makes for a less stressful encounter. How that helps.
    You can also go to practice and try to parry every single attack... It's not fun but it makes parrying heavies a breeze in 4v4s.
    4v4 isn't as much fun as it use to be under the new paradigm.

    Dude u just started the game. i have 500 hrs in the game and i can say that if u spam u dead. A veteran player will destroy an orochi who just spams lights. Learn to play ur main hero pick a decent main like an a tier. Learn parrys and punishes .

    The best start is watching youtube videos, maybe some guides first about the character, then a few duels of a good youtuber (I think KingMisty is one of the bests with centurion and gladiator, but you will find plenty more). Centurion did not change much since january I think, so don't be afraid from older vids either. I am not an expert with him, but from what I have seen, he is a parry intensive hero with not so good offensive options.
    To tell the complete truth, you are playing one of the weaker heroes, and even if you do everything right, you are severly hindered by your lack of openers. Try not to commit to attacks too much (unblockable, jump heavy, punch if the heavy is blocked, charged punch if no pin), stay close to walls, parry what you can, and hope you will avoid conquerors.

    Are you having problem with doing offense or being defensive? (light spam, crazy stuff like feinting berserkers, shamans, etc)
    I honestly dont think its you, its the state the game is in right now. Some characters are way too overtuned/overbuffed offensively. Reworked ones/newer ones. The game used to be... considerably easier earlier last year. And your centurion comes from that time (he was released back then) and hasnt really been properly touched (sounds weird) by the devs since then. The gap between older characters and the recently changed ones/new ones is bigger than ever.

    I think there isnt much you can do, unless you spend tons of time studying other characters (in training arena) that give you trouble (experiencing how the character works can help a tiny bit, tho it really sucks you gotta do that when you have no interest in them), watch some guides about cent, etc... which is all mostly hella boring to do if you ask me.
