Parry is Impossible

#1LaughingMan434Posted 9/20/2012 3:00:21 PM
There, I said it.
It feels great to say it too.
Parry is impossible online.
I've not ONCE been able to consistently parry ANYTHING online.
Nor have I seen ANYONE else consistently parry anything.

I would love to see someone really explaining and displaying the parry timings for this game and it's weapons.

Not some general overview of how it works; parry early, block the first few hits of an R1 spam, etc etc etc. but an actual display of someone consistently parrying people.

I am not original enough to make a signature. Suggest me one, perhaps?

EWGF has a very helpful parry video on youtube.

***He has other very good videos as well, you should check them out. They helped me tremendously when I was new to PvP.

Parrying is almost Impossible if you're fighting foreigner because they tend to be very laggy.

Oil_rope_bombs stole me thunder...

Check out that link though, and some of his other videos if you like it. They are solid for sure.

Well, you can't consistently do something only once, so there's your problem.

Parry is more of a guess than a skill. The only thing you can do is make better guesses.

Umm, no. I parry rather consistently in pvp against katana and greatsword users mostly. Same with ultra weapon users.

Like I said, conceptual stuff is useless with out any sort of detailed description.
I'm not talking about a detailed description of the theory.

Every time he lands a parry, he's basically just citing the theory that he utilized and not how it was executed in the specific scenario.

3:20
-What Rhythm?
-What's the timing?
-Early? Late? When you see him swing? Instantly after the block?
-You were using a shield with a bigger parry window, is that necessary? How much does that effect the method? Different timing or just easier?

Just saying, you're going to die a lot until you get the hang of it is almost as useless as providing no information at all.
