    The shield bash is a little OP. I see some people skating away on their shields as 5 other people cant land a hit on them as they are being constantly stunned. Maybe we could add a little cool down on the shield bash or something?

    Hell no, don't nerf it. You already can't attack, at ALL when bashing, that's a big enough nerf. By the time you land on the ground and start to do anything with your sword, the other guy is no longer stunned and is already retaliating.

    If you don't like it, try using a shieldbash yourself, it's pretty easy.

    Can't call this a proper shield bash, it's more like head surfing and you become untouchable.

    Let me reiterate, nothing beats double slash. Nothing.

    Except single slash before is charged and-

    Look, we can go on with this all day, or we could discuss the issue; No, I don't think it should be nerfed, its a jolly good time to be surfin' the battlefield, unscathed by everything... and I mean, how else would we catch those pesky Archers who're grapplin' away?
     
  10. i agree its quite retarded when someone shields down and becomes invincible but i dont think you cant call it overpowered when its not the dominant part of combat

    rip super shield bash from alpha

    I still don't remember how old shield bash worked...gosh how long has it been? Was I even around for that? Or did I just never learn it?

    Also the current face surfing is actually extremely annoying more than anything...and to me it just adds another thing in this game that can only be used well by the vets/pros(As great as it is that people can get skilled at this game, I do have issues with a mixed skilled community with such a large skill curve).
    Maybe I am just bitter from someone messing with me by infinitely stun comboing me with it once...

    Maybe it just needs thrown in the pile of features in this game that needs looked at a little more as it seems to have just been thrown in at random?

    Basically you could jump off buildings and land on people, doing massive damage. You also could jump forward, while shielding to knock back enemies. Hop on Classic, play a few rounds of Sumo. You will get an understand for how great of a thing the sheild bash was.

    Oh yeah, I remember the downward shield bashing when I used to play classic, that was great. I just forgot about the forward shield bashing because I guess I didn't understand the game enough to know that was what was happening.
