a decent Long Sword player in a G Ranked quest?

I was just in a room with 3 Long Sword users. I, deciding to test out the long sword in G Ranked once again, decided to equip my Long Sword as well. We was questing a Black Diablos. We got bodied to no end, and it was difficult for any of us to charge up our long sword, unless we caught him in a trap or something.
We ended up losing because of the time.

I then equipped my Switch Axe and another player took out a hammer for next match...... the other 2 still continued using Long Sword.
It was a much quicker match with the Hammer player knocking the monster down, giving the long sword players a chance to get their weapon charged up, and my switch axe doing tons of damage as well.

Long Sword is not that easy to use in the higher quests, ..yet again I say this.

cuz LS can no longer spam R. People may still badmouth it but the changes made the weapon take skill

That's why I keep mentioning Long Sword being hard to use. People keep saying that it's the easiest class in the game, yet I'm not seeing it.
It was easy from HR 0-5, but right soon as G Rank arrived, it wasn't the same.

Heck, I even see Gunlance players do awesomely in G ranked. but not Long Sword.

Hopefullyl one day a long sword player will prove me wrong, but right now, I'm not seeing anything good coming from the long sword.

That's a good, and simple way to put it.

In G rank master the X --> X+A (while holding left or right) combo, it allows your to get some quick damage in, and nimbly spring aside to dodge damage.
Apparently OP for his entire argument does in fact put his fingers in his ears and go "LALALALA" the entire thread. Fascinating.

Yeah, its not hard to master.

It's more like nobody tries to use it the way its supposed to be used, they focus too much on the spirit combo as the main component of the weapon, when spirit combo is simply a nice bonus, not the sole purpose of the weapon.

All the really good LS users ive seen (thats right, all 2 of them) only use spirit combo when the monster is downed/trapped, and take time to reposition themselves on a part of the monster where nobody is before starting their spirit combo. Of course they are also very good at using the weapon itself.

Ah I see now. That comes in handy. X + A is a good combo ender to keep me from getting bodied. Although I only use that Spirit thing when the monster is stunned etc.
