Why is it that one is unable to Feint while Out-Of-Stamina? If anything, being out of breath would make Feinting easier. If anything, one should be unable to throw Heavy Attacks while OOS.

When you are out of breath and start swinging your big, heavy sword, it is harder to stop it from completing the swing. Being OOS means you failed to manage your Stamina, so you get penalties: blocks dont interrupt chains, feints are impossible so you have to commit to your parry attempts, you will fall to the ground when you get GBed.

Being OOS has to be threatening, otherwise nobody would care for Stamina management. Imo it is pretty good as it is now.

Some heroes rely on making the other hero OOS, baiting with an UB and then parry for the unbalance.

As of dynamics, it is easier to get your sword to swing than stop it after it has gained momentum. And for game mechanics, OOS is meant to be a penaulty for non-assassins, if you could feint while OOS it wouldn't matter if you have stamina or not.

When standing Idle and your hero is OOS, they are often bent over and obviously exhausted. Imagine been told to sprint 400m as fast as you can then at the end do 50 push ups non stop and finally you have to do a chin up but stop and hold yourself halfway through and then catch a medium sized thrown at you with force. Itís not a stretch to imagine that you would fail, before even attempting to catch the ball. Unless youíre an absolute fitness god, youíd struggle to hold yourself still on the chin up bar. Same analogy roughly with been OOS in FH, youíre exhausted and canít properly stop the sword swing in time to parry (catch the ball) the sword coming towards you.
