I noticed this post on the official forums:
"In regards to PvP:
Is it true that auto-block only blocks attacks other than feints? If so, how is one supposed to make use of a feint skill against an opponents block if the enemy's auto-block knows it's coming and chooses not to activate? And why would they add auto-block if it removes the use of feint, and even player skill? Is this game not at least somewhat PvP focused? Am I missing something?"
WTF... why is that in the game? Auto-block is found in the advanced options.
