The hottest debate topic among For Honor players is the infamous guard break. Many players complain that the guard break is actually ruining the game and asked Ubisoft to revert it back to what it was like in the game’s beta.
The guard break is a move impossible to counter. A player performing a guard break will cause his character to kick or shove his opponent in order to deliver the final blow much faster. Most of the times, a player receiving a guard break has to chance of countering it, which is the reason why many players are requesting Ubisoft to change the move’s mechanics.
The guard break undermines the entire fighting system, allowing players to press one button and get a guaranteed successful attack. A guard break is the most damaging move with the least time to react. In order words, the perfect recipe to win is to simply repeat the guard break move until you kill everybody.
I refunded this game because in every match, I was just spammed with guardbreak, and no matter what I tried, I could never counter it. After 4 matches of dying almost immediately because I was spammed, I just couldn’t take it any more. I really enjoyed the beta, but I barely got GB at all. I just think it’s over powered to all hell, and now people are spending every match spamming it, only a nerf will hell, not a buff to countering.
For Honor’s Guard Break
The good news is that Ubisoft confirmed it would revert the guard break mechanics back to its beta form:
Guardbreak Counter (All Heroes):
Currently you can’t counter a guardbreak during a guardbreak attempt. This will be returned to the previous behavior seen in the Beta.
The company recently released an important patch that added many bug fixes, but no guard break changes. This let down many players as they expected the company to fix the guard break issue as soon as possible.
Players have put huge pressure on Ubisoft to fix the guard break’s mechanics, and we’re sure the company will roll out the balance patch in the coming days.
