      What button do you press to respec at a medbay? The symbol in the UI is a left pointing arrow (" <- ") but, upon, testing that doesn't seem to actually correspond to any button on the keyboard.

        Why the **** does blocking work like a piece of **** it problem one no noticeable sign as to when I should actually block to get a green block with the directional analyzer two why does it register upper right and lower right when I try to block right no enemy attacks at those angles so it makes no sense why that's even a part of the game and three what's with blocking down shouldn't it just be block to block straight forward attacks like a stab block up to block any sort of downward strike and left and right to block left and right why down most attacks from below me can't even be blocked like the delver or little Johnny starfish or any number of attacks that come from below me! Love the game but the blocking is garbage and should've been worked on more

            why did the devs change the control scheme somewhat from first game? block was Q before and now its Walk? and block is not Left Control? too awkward. at least the switching of targets is better as TAB compared to first game who had it set to X

              Hold the block key and move the mouse to do directional blocking. For some unknown reason I had more luck doing that when I was also pressing one of the WASD direction keys in addition to moving the mouse.
