Biggest Issue with Combat Lock

Love this game, played it since it was release many times over.

The worse thing about combat lock against multiple opponents is once you get into
lock, you have no way to win, as you spin from one opponebnt to the other and never
get a chance to defend yourself. I can’t say how many times I have died in seconds
of getting mobbed by two or more opponents this way. Just now I was in a nice fight
with one bandit chief, and I was winning, then another joined in, and I was dead
within 10 seconds due to getting constantly spun around. I tried to get to my horse
but once I did that, it was red screen and death1

There needs to be a way to selectivly lock, or at least disable the damn thing. I love the combat
in this game, and the combay system is awesome, but you have to be able to disengage.

Combat would feel a lot more realistic and fluid if there was no locking system. It makes things feel so artificial and “cyborg” like. Like I’m a robot acquiring targets. But I guess it’s not possible to execute combos and stuff without some kind of “link”.

Tapping L Shift should let you snap to other targets but I do agree. It’s a little stiff especially with multiple enemies as it’s too magnetic to your last target without flaying your camera to unlock. Thought that’s my experience on pc (being too magnetic to the same enemy) I also dont know about unlocking however, as the star system needs to have room to detect your swing.
