Those guys are just cheap.

When you use the lift to ascend to the crow's nest to take these guys out, and you're still in the animation and just starting to get your swords out, they hit you and knock you off. This either kills you outright or leaves you with no health to speak of.

It's like they start their attack animation the second your forehead heaves into view.

Situations like this that can kill you through cheapness is unacceptable.

Sorry, had to vent.

I hate those guys, been killed so many times like this.

I only fell off twice, and I was upgraded enough to not die

I never fell off. On the rare occurrence they hit me before I hit them, if I hit the edge Edward would fall forward instead of down. Almost like it was programmed to not ever fall off as a result of being staggered.

This. I have only ever died once after fast ascending to the scouts.

Totally agree with this. I had far more trouble reaching the enemy's flag than dealing with a Scout.
