Perfect Blocking Question

After watching the PVP videos, how the hell are you gonna perfect block something like a katana? Its an instant attack, and the game has fast paced combat which would make it even harder to perfect block.
This question is mostly for testers.

Prediction I guess. Anticipate if an opponent is about to attack and be ready to block at all times

Every move has a startup, even if it’s a really small one, so stay on your toes

So if I just try hard enough I can even parry a nuke?

Because you can see the animation of them charging it for a split second

they enter a stance and say the move before doing it

Bro ABA players have countered instant, undodgable, one shot attacks before so a tp slash with a small windup is nothing

startup animation, projectiles are easy to parry, start frames, predicting, seeing them freeze in place, etc.

I don’t think you are supposed to perfect block everything, otherwise everyone will just perfect block all the time and drags out the fights like a certain ““permadeath”” game
