Official Poll: Sideblock bug fix.
« on: February 13, 2018, 10:46:35 am »
Hey guys.

I'm back from my holiday in Thailand so I have time to fix all the issues you guys are having.

After some research on my part, I know why melee can feel different compared to last patch, Taleworlds changed some things how melee input is handled by the server to fix a often reported bug.

The bug in question was that sometimes on your screen you are blocking for instance up or down, whilst on the server and other people's screens you are blocking in another direction, for instance to the side.
To fix this bug, Taleworlds changed the timings a bit so the server allows the client a bit more time to change his direction.

As a result things might seem a bit more delayed if you have a very low ping, if you have a higher or fluctuating ping, things will be much smoother for you. in any case, things don't react the same as before the patch, and so on.

So the solution is simple. your free to leave your opinions on it.

Should we revert this change, bringing back the sideblock bug, or should we keep things as they are now?

I think in general you guys probably already just got used to it, but your free to say your opinion.
Discuss what you want about it here and vote on it.

We might not do what the poll gives as a result, and make our own decision, but it can give some kind of indication.

Cheers,

Vince.

The sideblock bug is not fixed, just keep it as is I guess though.

It seems about the same to me, haven't really been counting. Some matches it happens two rounds in a row and then nothing for a long string of rounds - it's just randomly infrequent I guess.

I've still seen people get the sb glitch and had it myself, so to be honest I think it'd be better to change it back to how it was. At the moment there are so many different opinions on how it feels where as at least the old melee everyone felt the same.
I won some things, I came 2nd and 3rd in lots of things, I guess I did some other shit too........ I'm also an FSE legend, probably most commonly described as a cunt. If the shit I do doesn't make sense in your head, well fuck you because it makes sense in mine.

Which i did, against known and reputed player, some of them considered legend, such as, Mandarin, Ledger, Tiberias, Herishey, Hokej, Troister, Axiom, Evanovic, Stark, Eddie, Jammo, Bagins, Freddie, Python. I didn't had a good relationship with most of them, but i congratulate them for what they did, and i had pleasure facing them.

Agreed with Herishey, I still see it so just change it back.

Thanks for clearing it up though, I knew I wasn't going crazy, it does feel slower D: (12 ping usually)

Is it also related to the huge amount of pokes? it seems it have been multiplied by minimum 3!

This is a very valid point, do you have an update on this?

Its probably the biggest thing for everyone as it affects all of us, not just the low ping players (I bet you did it to us on purpose!! I know your game!!!)

I feel like the amount of people with higher ping outway everyone with low ping :/ Means that some have to get fkd for the rest to have better melee :(

Also FSE devs shouldn't vote!!!

In all honesty the sideblock bug is not something that bothers me. Its more how risky block chambering has become because the timing seems to have changed completely, and that 1v2s have become way harder because  blocking 2 people at once with tap blocking doesn't seem to work consistently anymore.
oh and pokes ofc

Melee just doesn't seem consistent. Like there are a ton of pokes and glances. Stabs are like 50/50 if they're going to glance when you're stabing a spinning player.
