    Alternatively, sword blocking could be much weaker than shields, but not disabled by axes.

    Yeah, I really want sword blocking back. It don't have to be strong (also it mustn't) but I just want the ability for this.

    So also the 1.8 players would be fine with the new combat system if they get sword blocking back.

    Mojang, please add sword blocking back. :/

    I think it's fair that sword blocking is weaker than shield blocking and still can be disabled, since you can actually attack with a sword

    The "X" shape will be cool for some purposes.
