View Full Version : After patch Medium has less reach then light???

I tested it a couple of times .And I found that usual overhead swing (whic is now performed by attack) in medium has reach less than in light . Not only medium is slower now ,spin is impossible and it does less damage ,but looks like it harder to connect it too now .Damn why the hell the touched medium in patch ??? It was the best balanced stance and now its just pathetic .

It has the negligibly longer reach than Light, is slower and therefore is avoided/dodged much easier, perhaps that's why it is harder to connect...

I stopped using medium altogether, it is quite pointless now.

I used to be a medium stance dueler, mostly becuase it combined a fair amount of speed with good damage rate. It's spin was one of the most effective counter attacks. Now, with the patch, light stance is what the medium stance was, only with less damage, and Medium is what heavy was, with less damage, and heavy is the same, only with more difficult moves. Now, it is useless.

The good old medium stance was gunned down by Raven...And is practically useless now...

You can still spin, but it is now possible to chain moves w/out screwing up and spinning.

I don't care what anyone says, i'm still sticking by Medium stance, it'll never die for me! Fight the revolution!

Etc. etc.

personally I still find medium useful. The reach doesn't seem to have changed IMO. I swing a bit slower and I can't spin as easily,
but I can still spin if I try to.

Actually I find myself using all the stances in combat now instead of just sticking to one.
