why sword blocking should NOT be reintroduced
if people want to recreate 1.7 or 1.8 pvp in the newer snapshots, it should be an easily accessible gamerule/command that removes sweeping attacks, attack cooldowns, and higher axe damage. sword blocking should NOT be reintroduced. with the introduction of the offhand slot, probably one of the best changes mojang has made imho, sword blocking would make absolutely no sense as having food or other items that are used with right click would interfere with right clicking to block your sword. blockhitting was confusing anyway, and can easily be replaced by having a food item in your offhand, giving you the sprint reset without the damage reduction.
