"Worked as intended, working as intended..." intended by who? The same guy who thought an easy mode for sekiro was a good idea? **** off. Poise here is a lazy and sorry attempt to counter the consequence of the stupid idea about mixing dark souls and bloodborne, wich resulted in straight swords, curved swords, daggers (REALLY?), whips, etc... to be more effective than axes, greatswords, halberds, etc. Almost 0 strategy, wich ruins dark souls as a game to think before acting and taking care of a situation step by step, and all "oraoraora" bullsht with "hyper armored" small weapons wich is bloodborne all over again. This is why ds1 AND ds2 are superior, as none of those games gives you everything chewed up like a baby.
