Not sure if it's intended or if it's a bug

I've been practicing parry and attack parries for a while, and I noticed that I can attack parry nearly every (and any) enemy swing by walking backwards and tapping attack in the right time.
I thought you had to do a proper parry (with good direction according to the enemy swing) AND to tap attack in the right time to perform an attack parry.

So if it's not a bug, it should be like I said, because it's far too easy at the moment.

Backwards just tends to be the movement direction for most parries since most players attack while moving towards their opponent.

it doesnt parry side swings or especially low swings as well though doing that underside attack parry gets a backwards moving person everytime.

But I'm sure I parried diagonal slashes while doing this... shouldn't I have to move both backwards AND on side to block a diagonal slash?

Not really. We allow the player to be 2 quadrants off when determining block directions.

Then parrying is far easier than I thought...
I thought you had to move backwards for a vertical slash, side for the appropriate side slash, and both backwards (or forward, according to where the slash will land) and the appropriate side to block a diagonal slash.

It's still pretty difficult the way it is.

Well if I got it, diagonal slashes can be parried by just walking backwards or just walking to side, right? It's like a vertical slash AND a side one, so it's the easiest to parry...
