they just need to make more than one guy attack at once. I think the insta counter kill works fine. it is jus too easy to do because they attack in turn. Force me to parry and dodge until i get an opening to kill.
Well besides them only attacking one at a time, the window for counters is huge, both in starting the counter and the follow up command. They really need to minimize the time (probably more to twitch reflex) and even remove the little indicator telling you who's about to attack, because as soon as I see that I automatically press B and they're dead a second later.
