Wow, look at that It is actually getting fixed, bravo.

I wish people would make as big a stink about knockback being broken. Maybe that would get fixed. It artificially inflates the power of teams that run a lot of caitians, tactical officers using the operative kit (lunge is the culprit here), [kb3] weapons, and any weapon with a chance to knockback. It can ruin a good match.

One of my fleetmates put it this way, "If I ever feel like doing ground pvp, I'll just go outside and practice falling over". Very funny, and sadly true.

Using the sword exploit in ground PvP is a dishonorable attack .. but can be defeated.

I was having that issue and a very good PvP er told me to jump .. You end up getting knocked back further so you will have time to recover.

I took his advice and whipped the heck out of a player trying the exploit and I have not seen him since.

A SCi can also use sonic pulse to get separation along with tach harmonic.

Carry a KB3 pw in your inventory it never hurts.

Stay out of the corners when someone comes at you with a sword.

Sometimes fellow teammates in PvP refuse to assist a person/Teammate using that exploit .. them are usually the good guys.

If you want to really piss them off get a stasis pistol .. They want to be an ass you can be an ass to.

Swords to me are way OP. I dont see how a sword can go through a personal shield at 80% penetration. Seems like if a sword hit a personal shield you would get KB + electrical damage .. seems that what happens in sci fi anyways.

Yeah, jumping does the work and sometimes rolling.

But still, is broken.

So was this what was addressed in the last patch? Do they no longer stack?

The slow blade penetrates the shield, that's why.

So if a golfer slows down his swing he can hit the ball a greater distance? If a batter slows his swing he will hit a baseball a longer distance?

If I stick a shard of metal in to a electrical field of multiple and modulating frequencies I am going tobe able to tap dance around the inside of this field ? or would I get knocked back with a new Orpheus in my body where the electricity shot out my body killing me in the process?

And strangely Lunge does 3X the damage of a sword. It seems knights were so stupid carrying swords, all the time they would have been far deadlier just drop-kick lunging.
