I have very much noticed this is a problem. It’s much more consistent in high intensity engagements, but it can come up anytime. Worst case I spent half a magazine not having any hit register even when they landed center mass.
sometimes the special charged attack on the thunderhammer simply bounces off the enemy without consuming the charge and still staggers you, requiring you to press once again just to get a hit confirmed. i don’t have any recordings of this currently but if i do manage to record it i’ll edit this post.
With the number of mobs on Heresy and its fast attack speed, using the combat blade results in literally 1 out of 3 swings just doing nothing. Pushing should lightly but reliably stagger small enemies, but it fails to do that half the time.
No client prediction sucks so bad lmao how could they just ignore that
The servers are slowly killing all of my desire to play the game, between all of the hit reg issues, enemies hitting you from a mile away, snipers landing shots you very much dodged (And most specials, snipers are just particularly frustrating with how punishing a single shot is), etc. I find myself playing my zealot more than my ogryn (despite liking ogryn more overall) just because at least my zealot has his passive to save him when the entire horde randomly decides they don’t feel like reacting to my smacks anymore, or that sniper shoots the air 10 feet to the side but it ‘hits’ me.
That and between all of the other changes with coherency/toughness and how aggressive the spawning is of disablers on anybody not hugging at least one other person it really feels like they’re trying to lower the skill ceiling while keeping ‘difficulty’ but it just ends up feeling cheesy at times. I’d kill for P2P back, this is part of why I only ever hosted, I have very low tolerance for laggy garbage ruining plays, especially in a PvE game.
In this short clip the game first rolled-back my shot (loot at the ammo counter lol) and my shot didn’t matter (there was a blood splash visible) but a couple of seconds later the game denied my charged melee attack (you hear the sound of it but that’s all), basically leading me to death…
