So I'm trying chivalry.
And I want to like it. I really do.
But it's not working. Half of it's me being bad at the game. I accept that. I've only played a few hours at a generous stretch. But the other half is being attacked by a knight with my swift man at arms. I parry his first inevitable horizontal swing with an enormous hammer. Which I'm then reliably told should give me a small window for a counterattack. And then he kills me with his second horizontal swing which inexplicably animates faster than mine. Despite the fact that I'm using the hatchet, which is certainly faster than his weapon, and I wasn't just parried.
I don't get it. And it's bugging the piss out of me.
