just got invaded by a reddie. he's got electro buff sword, magic barrier, so i just turtle and way for the effects to wear off, as i was doing that, and its been like this for every fight, 100%, the hitboxes man, the sword never reached my shield, but there is the effect, even those super long swords, like zwei, when they swing, u can see the edge blurr, i even make allowance to stay out of that blurr range, anyway, always connects on my shield, whats interesting is that i was turtling, so i was straffing, circling, those hits even connects when i was out of reach, and at an angle to them. then he got one guard break at directly in front, face to face, 2 metres apart, whats going on? i won by the way.

I'm late to the party but yes, hitboxes are atrocious.

In my game I was 2-3 hits away from victory over my foe when he instakilled me through a solid, unbreakable object, not only did his weapon go through it, it connected with me when there was plenty of room between my character and his weapon.

Just...just...bullshit.

Hit boxes are fairly retarded. I just got hit by a hammer from a 90 degree angle and well out of range.
