Change your dead zone in controller configuration. t makes all the difference in the world.

Also, don't get discouraged by the toxic and elitist attitudes of some people in this game. It's not just an issue of "Git Gud." For Honor has a wide variety of issues. The best advice I can give you is to practice as much as possible.

Thats default setting.

Really? My default was 8 or something. Almost had to have the stick all the way out before my character would move. I have mine set to 3 because i flick the stick sometimes and that keeps it from switching block direction as the stick resets.

By far the most helpful thread right now, this needs more attention

so basically deadzone is the point in which the guard knows when to switch? so the smaller the deadzone the more sensitive the the guard switch is? well if that s right then I will do it straight away

I'm kinda happy with the default. Too much sensitivity and that starts to mess with the full block characters.

I was sceptical when I first read this but I tried it out last night and OH MY GOD, life just got so much easier! Wish i'd known this 18 months ago :nonchalance:

No more screaming at the TV, shouting "I FCKING BLOCKED THAT!" after I slammed the thumbstick one way and nothing happened, resulting in my death.

Archeun, you are a saint.

Just for clarification. The "dead zone" is the zone closest to neutral for the stick in which no input is given. A high (large) dead zone means that you can move your stick around a bit before the controller will react to your input. A low (small) dead zone means that your controller will start registering inputs fairly quickly. For games such a FH this is useful as you'll only have to move the stick a little to switch your block. This makes blocking faster and more reliable which in turn makes parrying easier as long as you have the correct timing for it.

ahh thanks, there should defiantly be more awareness of the deadzone and its function for new players.

-_- I told you about this the month we started playing...

I'd also like to add that learning parry timings on unblockables is very key. Start shutting those down early and your gameplay will see marked improvement.

Zero deadzone is best deadzone

Thanks to both of you for raising awareness of how tweaking this setting can be massively helpful for people!

I thought you did do it at one pint, I know you are messing around with lay out selections, don't know how you skipped the tuning section
