Remove Unblockable

Svarty.8019Svarty.8019 Member ✭✭✭✭

Let's get rid of Unblockables.

What's the point? It's not like people are saying "Oh that person is blocking, I'll use my unblockable". That level of gameplay doesn't exist. Unblockable just helps unskilled players with their random ability spamming.

    No.

    Just no.

    Unblockable is a good pvp mechanic but it should only be on lower damage skills. AoE condi application shouldn't be unblockable.

    Unblockable is the only thing forcing builds which stack defenses over defenses to actually not brain dead defense chaining.
    If unblockable is removed, Bunker builds are gonna get even stupider than they already are now.

    If I play a stupid build, I deserve to die.
    If I beat people on a stupid build, I deserve to get away with it.

    Id rather them remove Invulnerability, pulls, teleport skills and such before they remove unshockable.

    Umm... Yes it does. Plenty of people save their unlockables in pvp when fighting a class with big block durations.

    by plenty you mean 20 ppl right? :D

    Well, yeah, because apparently the rest of the PvP players are bots?

    we have thief saying that saving unblockable daze swipe to interrupt channeled block skills is bad, and preaching it out loud for all to see
    even if they are given the tools to deal with something they wont use them, call them bad and rage quit?
    actually reminds me of myself

    I'd much prefer if some skills went through blocks, instead of being able to have multiple unblockable hits on any skill as long as you have something to enable it.

    I rather choose death.

    Might as well argue that block skills help unskilled players with their poorly timed dodge spamming

    This. It also removes so many variables, individual unblockables are so much easier to adjust.

    I think most of those are good right now, Gale or necro staff5 for example are not very fun to play against however; they don't require much positioning on the user's part, they are fast and difficult to notice, and straight up interrupt your defensive skill you may be using.

    What's next? Remove blocks? stealth? teleports? blind? CC? Why not just get better?

  • kiranslee.4829kiranslee.4829 Member ✭✭✭

    I fully agree on this, most classes that use block skills have those on pointless lvl atm. Unblockable is bad mechanic.

  • Makuragee.3058Makuragee.3058 Member ✭✭✭

    From a new player its make no sence. Of sweet this skill block! Use the skill, attavk still go threw, welp I guess the skill does not really block its lame. Unblockable its just a unfun and a layer of complexity thats is too much. Make certain huge skill unblockable fine but not a buff isssh that trigger unblockable on any skill.

    The amount of blocks on certain classes ie guard would have to be significantly reduced if unblockable was removed from the game. Think about a guard, fb or dh spamming its symbols, traps and Mantra's on nodes with all of its aegis and blocks lmao they'd be literally broken in pvp modes.

    Unblockable got reduced to a very limited number of attacks over time - HUGELY buffing reflects and blocks which still operate under the old "infinite number of attacks stopped over X duration".

    Let’s remove interrupt because ppl randomly interrupt as well

  • ASP.8093ASP.8093 Member ✭✭✭

    Damage is pretty random. Let's remove damage.

    If you argued with: "Block is a counterplay to pressure, and counterplay shouldn't have counterplay." I would say that you might be right, but your current argument is really flawed. For example I had to explain to my duel buddy, that the moment he starts to block, magnet pull and poison 'nades are coming.

    Maybe you should use your unlockables to counter blocking, instead of randomly spamming abilities? Like normal people do.

    I mean, idk what else to say? Remove unblockables and severely cut down the amount of block abilities/time people can block for? Maybe remove blocks as well? Why not!

    Do you want a balanced GW2? Then you are obliged to unironically agree with this suggestion!

    "I'm bad at this game, therefore it's impossible for anyone to be good at it." Uh-huh. Very convincing.

    Not really, that's what you said in your first post.
