I wrote this as a comment on Lava Hyperion's post here: http://wilds.userecho.com/topics/2581-bring-back-all-around-block/.
As we know, there are a lot of opinions about the new directional block. My opinion is at the bottom of this post, I'm just writing a few pros and cons for the directional block here:
- Easier for ranged weapons to hit others.
- Hit enemies in the back if they're blocking towards another direction.
Pro/Con: More realistic -> However; is wilds.io that realistic? Is realism always positive?
- It may become very difficult to survive in Ruins if you're king. Many players will try to hunt you down, and if you happen to get caught in a massive crowd of enemies, it's impossible to block everyone, which means you will die more quickly.
- Harder to survive. As Egzekutor said in a comment: The average amount of time of a player's lifespan has been reduced.
MY IDEA: Basically what the title says. Make the directional block only count for ranged attacks, as that will be better for the ranged, and it will get rid of the frustration of getting so easily and quickly in a crowd of players who are trying to hunt you down.
By doing this, archers and mages will still kill enemies easier, as well as it becomes less difficult to survive against a crowd of noobs - Inexperienced players should learn to master all the different attacks (like I'm always saying). The more experienced players in the game, the better.
I know Rezoner replied to my comment on Lava Hyperion's post, but I want to hear the players' opinions about my idea for the directional block.
