How often would you find yourself in a power struggle or a block struggle?. I'd probably say roughly about 20%-30% of the time I play and depending on what I am blocking (whether I am bsing a beam or a detachable attack such as big bang, deathball etc).

Power Struggles rarely happen for me. I'll sometimes ps with someone on a pub, and if someone wants to ps i'm usually up for it depending on mine and his/her pl.

I'll probably end up bsing/psing more though if there are more new players on a server. Most of the time I just avoid them altogether when I'm with players on the same skill level as me depending on what attack they are firing (They end up exploding the beam in my face, so that's why I avoid it and then go melee them if there ki is low and i can reach them in time to hit them =P).

About the same as you 20-30% of the time, but they are usually the kind when you see somebody start a signature move animation, so instead of just meleeing him, I have fun with it and charge my own attack or decide to block. Usually something just clicks in our head if he/we are charging a beam and we/he also charge a beam that we should just powerstruggle and not try any tricks, just for the hell of it.

I would love if 1.3 could incorporate powerstruggles more conveniently so that you don't need to set up a powerstruggle. I can recall once or twice when I got into a generic beam powerstruggle in a heated fight.

Never. Whenever I join a server/someone joins mine, its just usually straight melee. If you're talking about power struggles that happen because you saw a beam coming at you, then never.

Usually, you plan it out with a friend/opponent. Unless I'm relaly unlucky :(

Same as Kaination for me. Never. The servers i play in most people curve theirs beams to the side of you and self detonate them so you get caught in the blast radius. The most i ever block is a gen ball or ki blast once in a while.

About 5 - 10% everytime i play. I barely do block, only when i see a beam going straight at me and i can block it. And Grega, i see you removed your posts in your signature :p.

I block ki attacks, but not block-struggle, because the only things I block are ki-blasts and generics, which are usually swatted away rather than struggled with. Why sit and struggle something and maybe lose (if the pre-detonation doesn't kill you first) when you could dodge it with teleports and counter?

If it were a powerful detachable attack like big bang or something and I was in a pub then I would bs it and swat it towards people fighting near by. Sometimes i'll get bored and block beams, and do the same thing in terms of swatting it away (it jsut depends on I know or not if that player is skilled enough to know how to explode a beam, as the pub i'm on usually consists of noobs, average players and pros).

That's some good fun to do when your'e bored on a pub, I remember making a ps out of 20 gen balls once (ten from me and another player). Our pl was about 15mil transformed and we managed to kill each other since we got caught in the blast radious of the explosion. 2 other souls also died that were fighting near by.
