Hi For Honor Forums. I recently watched a video discussing the for honor classes. At one point they mentioned the conqueror being OP cause he is unblockable. I don't know how accurate the information is but if its true, wtfbbq. I don't know about you guys but a hero that you cant block? does not sound like a good idea. What do you guys think?

Okay, so, just to make this easier for everyone, let there be vid!

First thing's first, at 3:00 is the quote you're looking for, two guys sort of talk over one another "We saw, not the flail class, but the mace class, and we played the Alpha which"---"Techincal Test"---"Right a pre-alpha technical test, whatever you want to call it, and, yeah, it was OP, it was so OP. Couldn't block it; and to be fair, in real life it's hard to predict how it gonna change"---"Because it's swinging you don't know if it's coming at your left or right"---"If it's a sword coming at you it's easier to predict where it's coming at you, imagine if you're doing this IRL, you're like, 'if he shifts his body weight just a tiny bit, that could undercut my blade and crack me in the jaw and kill me"---"It was really hard to predict."

First problem with all of that is that everything associated with the technical test---including how characters without any proper gameplay of them---is NDA'd, so they shouldn't be talking about it how the Conqueror handled, or how they were to fight. Not sure if they actually violated it here, but if not, they're walking on a razor's edge.

Second problem is that he's not saying 'He's unblockable', he's saying his movements are hard to predict, so he had a very hard time blocking him.

Third, they have shown unblockable manoeuvres for both the Raider and Kensei, so we know those exist for at least certain heroes.

Lol sorry i guess i kinda was not paying attention to the important detail. A little misunderstanding on my part.

It's fine. Just a misunderstanding.

They still shouldn't be talking about classes played in the Tech Test, though. At around 6 min, they also vaguely describe how the Berserker was to fight. Again, not sure if they're quite violating the NDA, because they don't really go into specifics, but they're skirting that line infinitesimally close.

Willow summed it up perfectly.

Also FYI talking about what they were talking about was definitely NDA violation status.
