So, I've seen a few other threads about the charge not working. I figured if there are enough people talking about it, devs might do something about it. We'll see.
Top of a flight of narrow stairs in windmill. Charge at guy running up stairs, I deflect to the left of him (his right) and I keep charging down stairs till I hit a wall. He turns around and melee kills me.
My mind is full of rage and confusion as I watch the sort of kill cam following your death.
Normally missing with bayonet charge doesn't bug me.
I think this just shows the darker side of quality of the game. You can do everything right and plan it and have every advantage, but still fail. And I think that is a total screw you to players everywhere.
It's results like these that make trying to enjoy bf1 difficult. Because I am trying to enjoy the game. I think it's got great potential, and the hype was founded and deserved. But crap like that bayonet charge just makes me cringe with frustration for game mechanics.
