Everyone complaining that poise is "broken"...

It is not broken.

It works completely as intended to. It just functions differently from DkS1.

The primary purpose of poise in DkS2 enables you to finish your swing without being interrupted.

I love how some people figured this out on day 1 and other people haven't

No walking through an attack to stunlock your opponent is dumb.

Because weapons don't have different reaches to counter such things. Jesus Christ people use your heads.

No, it is actually smarter than the Dark Souls system because it is based on how things worked in a better game

Yeah poise now is great, in dark souls it pretty much ruined pvp and its what primarily made it the backstabfest it was

Video games always break the fourth wall, theyre like 'Snake, push the SELECT button!' and Snakes probably like 'What the f***!?'
