YAWING a skill or a vehicle of confusion?
I possess mixed feelings towards the fights revolving around "who tilts their player model harder" maybe some ppl find it to be an important element of the current Dueling, and it's the best thing ever for them? There is an increasing trend (from my impression and especially in the OPEN), that involves FACE-HUGGING somebody and then unleashing a barrage of swing-blocked, jawed swings in their face (the more hits the better) hence me calling it "spam." The most common response I get to that is "just use a Slap bruh." And 1 in 3 of my slaps are successful against those opponents."Yawing can be done for single hits as well as in combos, doing it in combos essentially renders your combos
'unblockable' due to how fast the animations land."
Tilting the player model to land swings faster is a currently very popular visually confusing strategy that main focus of which could be obstruction of the effectivenss of PBing. This becomes more of an issue in 1 vs 2 and 1 vs 3 where Gunners and more than 1 Saberists are facing off against you.
And I am not referring to fully casual, slappable Duelists (who can be slapped at any time) but certain 'TRY-HARDS' The Players who can easily do 3-4 consecutive swings consistently and barely ever get slapped because they Swing Block Perfectly each time. There does exist a window of opportunity to make a slap I am not denying the following. I wish there were additional mechanics in place to besides countering their swings with my swings, PBing it all, disarming them that's a lot you are required to do to counter much simplier strategy the opponent is deploying, no?
