Is melee shut-down really an exploit?
 
If the newest reason to cry fowl, mellee shut-down, if indeed an exploit how can we make melle more fearsome so that it isn't laughed out of the game? My crystaline sword says it's just fine.

Really? Cryptic has introduced Rifle Butt 2.0?

Not that, use a sword, the knock back doff, and disabling strikes and viola! You slap people around like your Chris Brown. I think it's cool, but a lot of people cry over it.

It's a bug, and making use of it is called an exploit, so if anyone is using this method to kill all the times then yes that person it's an exploiter.

There is supposed to be a resistance to knockback that procs when you get knocked, but it doesn't work


And yes hilbert, it's Rifle Butt 2.0.

I don't really think advocating the use of a known exploit really contributes to the growth of pvp.

Welp, once one person talks about it, the usage of the exploit will increase.. so it'll probably get fixed in the next week or two. :P

Don't need the doff for the sword to spam knockback.

That explains Tuesday night's ground matches. I suppose playing with your sword in public is a lifestyle choice for Fed Tacs...
