Is it intentional for when you dodge that not only is your enemy able to guard break you but you cannot counter it. I find this mechanic very frustrating since opponents will look for when you dodge and guard break you. I play shinobe and even if you double dodge your opponent can stop you right in the middle of it.

It is intentional, guardbreak is there to counter dodging, as dodging is there to counter attack. If you dodge nothing prepare to be punished

Nothing, hah. And when someone throw heavy and then cancel it and gb you this means nothing, right? So, give us the opportunity to cancel our dodge as well. Oh, wait, new China super-duper dudes will have it. It's ok now.

The only moves in this game that you're forced to dodge are certain unblockables like WL's headbutt and Cent's kick/punch. If you decide to dodge an attack instead of blocking it and get GBd for it, that is on you for falling for the feint.

if you dodge when he can cancel heavy you just risk to get hit even by attack you dodge tracking. Or to be punished by cancels.
Dodge later, a bit before parry window to be safer. And like that enemy cant cancel already at that moment.

Well think about it this way: how would you counter a player that's constantly dodging everything without a guardbreak? Imo this would count as a form of turtling since you're completely shutting your opponent down denying every option they might have to dish out some damage except it would be even worse since turtling can be countered by bashes for example so it would just be outright broken.
