Having played Dark Souls I really miss being able to dodge forward in this game. You can only dodge straight left, right or backwards but not forward or a combination of left/right-forward. I find that quite limiting. Maybe there is a reason for that? Would it be too similar to charge abilities? Dodges have diminishing returns here so you wouldn’t be able to dodge through an entire mission with it.
Diminishing returns are reset after about 1 second. Allowing dodge forward will mean that everyone will now need to constantly dodge forward as they’re running to speed up runs. That doesn’t sound fun to me.
