i think in darktide, you should only be able to use half of your blocks possible by exhausting your stamina with running.
like if you have 4 blocks possible, 100% stamina drained will leave you with 2 blocks.
More stamina should still equate to more blocks though.
also, if this system is incorporated, we will want some details about the system… like if you have 5 stamina blocks, and you use 100% stamina and are theoretically at 2.5 blocks, does that amount to 3 blocks? does it amount to 2 blocks and a third block that is considered a “weak block” that can suffer more stagger or even block failure based on the attack/enemy? (is that what the cracked shield in vermintide 2 represents???)
we would probably need some type of notification about our blocking ability. you could potentially do one bar, and have part of the bar represent your total blocks, but this sort of takes light away from your stamina being as important. probably would want to have 2 bars, one for stamina only, and one representing your blocks that partially depletes as your stamina depletes. could still be minimal on your ui like this
also, can we have a character stats page??
still have no idea how much crit %age i have with any given weapon at any time.
