So... I'm losing my mind trying to use "Crushing Counter", which is "Up" on the Right Stick and "Light Attack".
I'm at a complete loss as to what I'm doing wrong. I just watched this video frame by frame, and saw the enemies attack go THROUGH my sword. I don't know if I'm too early, or too late. If anyone could provide advice, it would be greatly appreciated.
Here's the video: https://1drv.ms/v/s!AjYkT3ILJFIbhwUPHs6V-Pit1Zn7

Here's another video: https://1drv.ms/v/s!AjYkT3ILJFIbhwbqOlHSlgHHB-1c
And another frame by frame: https://postimg.org/image/sx2waso6x/
In BOTH videos, my sword is UP in parry position. The enemy attack goes straight through it. I die. It's not even WORTH using if I can't rely on it.

I cannot even take this serious man its so annoying to blame the game for YOUR mistakes. You can CLEARLY see that you are about to do a light overhead Attack. My god specially in the Frame by Frame you even see the Wardens fire animation. 0,1 Seconds earlier and you wouldve get the Overhead Counter but that was for sure your fault.

It isn't bugged. To land the crushing counterstrike, you need to light attack during the time you would heavy for a parry. In both of these cases, you are light attacking too late. It's kindof annoying, but you can "parry" too late. The white indicator that flashes doesn't last until the end of a swing, it expires shortly before the end. You need to use your light attack earlier, right when the white indicator flashes; not after. It takes practice and timing.
