Ever since the whole new stats thing the bosses have some crazy SF which means they can pull of combos in rapid time. No joke during my battle with Sobek he had all of his team mates out all doing something different! One was using a counter, one was in a tag combo, and he was using soul crash! How am I suppose to beat someone like him if I can't even train or change my stats?!

You've gotta better manage your meter and strategically use it. Deflect is a godsend in any battle.

The timing for that though is like nearly impossible.

It really is. It's actually kinda disappointing, how everything's set up...

...it is?

wat.

I successfully deflect 85% of the time. <_<

It's not very hard to time either. Especially when you prepare yourself for it. A person's reaction time increases when they're expecting something. If you can see an attack coming, and your character is in a neutral stance, then chances are a deflect is coming. Just press the button as soon as blade collides with your character. If you get hit, you wont deflect or tag, but if you block, a deflect will come out immediately. It's really about recognizing and prediction.

Like the window to deflect is pretty lenient compared to parrying in 3rd strike, or Powershielding in Smash. Getting technical, but I think the window for a successful deflect is practically 30+ frames, which is like a second since the game runs at 30FPS. Average reaction time is 0.215 seconds. You guys can do it. Just gotta predict when it's going to happen.

WHAT THE FREAKIN HECK!!! I randomly do soul crash without even pressing anything, he is still able to hit me during a counter, and he uses tag to much even when he has no orbs!

Not really the point. I can't even tag out most of the time when I've specifically been given enough of the orb to do so. Sometimes I have COUNTER but not TAG. And Deflect only shows up whenever the hell it feels like it.

Well, you said it's hard to time, and I gave advice.

So I dont see how it's not related to the point.
Deflect does not show whenever it feels like it. Deflect shows up when you get attacked while blocking, you quickly press the A button while blocking and you deflect, it does great damage.

Yeah. I know how it works. Isn't this common knowledge?

I already beat this boss but like I said he would attack me during my counters and my tag combos wouldn't word because of his high Def and Evade stat (he would either block my combos or I would run out of orbs before I did enough damage)
