Need some sugestions
It seems every time I block or parry an attack and go for a counterattack it gets blocked, and I get hit before I have a chance to block their counter and I dont know why, I usually have a ping of 20-30 and im running over 45fps but everyone seems to be faster than me even with slower weapons even if they have a ping of 100 or higher, its getting old when im doing everything right and still get beat almost every time, is my ping to high or something? any help is appreciated.

You would honestly be surprised. Me and my mate sat down and tested weapon speeds and then went in a game, only a select few maintanted the proper speed of the weapon.
I don't throw out 'hackusations' but this game is ridding with them.
Unles of course that 60 more ping they have makes them drop 1s behind and they seem like they're attacking before they actually are.

I know I can. (Yes, Trust me)
But I can't tell which is which here until I...Uhh...shall we say, see some footage? (If that's possible)

Cooooould also be alternate....Enough people have experience with alternate swings to be able to take advantage of the faster swing coming from a different direction...In order to kill beginner players. (Not saying that you are, OP, But I meant in general)

Don't you block the upcomming attack too early ?
You have to block on the last moment to be sure to hit him back faster. I suggest you block then hit him with a stab (or swing).
Although, keep in mind that many guys will automaticaly block when they have their attack rejected. Just hit him after he tries to block back ^^ or make a step left/right and stab.

I also agree that once you've got +100 hours, you'll spot cheaters among good players.

In addition to what's been mentioned above, there's also realtime swings. By moving your camera, you can make your attacks connect faster (or slower). Most high level players know how to make their attacks connect immediately after windup.

Add/message me on Steam for a quick 1v1 experimentation match if you like. I'll try to determine and tell you what you're doing wrong.

no these are standard right to left swings usually and alternate swings arent suposed to be faster than their counterpart, what do you mean? I use alt swings a lot to catch people off guard and they are not faster.

When you block someone it bounces their weapon back on the recoil weather the swing has just started or almost finished and is suposed to leave them vulnerable I was not aware of this last second thing is there a video or something where the designers explain their "ACTUAL" mechanics?, when the block sounds I start my swing and always aim for the opposite shoulder than the swing is coming from or I stab high or low it usually gets blocked and I get hit before I can block, seems its working properly for the other people that kill me at the drop of a hat. If I block any later ill get hit, I know my ping gets me killed a lot from all the attacks that completly miss me but kill me anyway.

They can't all be hackers, you know. This guy's right. ^ Though It's more of an unconscious thing for me now, since I've been playing for so long.

So I have to turn and put my exposed side to them just to get a counter attack to hit after I stall them with a block? I usually aim for the opposite shoulder, aiming away from them to hit them seems like an exploit to me but ill give it a try.

So since the sword animation is locked to my view and can speed up the weapon's swing by draging the mouse in the direction of the swing it speeds the sword up, makes sense, swinging the sword back and forth is not enought I have to swing the view back and forth as well to make the sword faster. So a weapons speed stat only applys to its wind up then?
