So, like the earlier builds of the game I find myself constantly yelling at the avatar to turn around and face the right direction. I'm now getting spun around like crazy. I'm Lucky if I can make it past the 3rd guy on Novice. I was getting pretty far in Expert in the last few builds.
I don't know how many blows I've seen that should not by any means have landed or gotten through my defenses. I mean yeah, many other ones I can see for sure; I just messed up, no problem there. But there are way too many blows landing that just don't make any sense.
I'd record it and and mic myself talking about it; but I don't have a mic or any proper recording software setup.
It seems trying to swing my weapon with the mouse and move in the direction I wish to travel has, in the build, become almost impossible. I keep ending up flying way off course when I didn't have such an issue before. It was minor, and now is extreme. Like I want to move in toward my foe while swinging my mouse and end up going way left or way right instead, following the reticle; and then of course I'm facing the wrong direction.
I've had to stop moving and swinging my attacks at the same time if I want predictable control over my avatar. I've given up in this build with doing anything fancy. Trying to defend or parry with the shield has got way more difficult it seems. I primarily use sword and shield, and always felt it to be reasonably trustworthy. Not atm however.
