There was a big discussion going on how much effect dodging may have, when you anyways tab target your opponent and just do Single Target Damage (or DD), if you could dodge that or not.
Now i have found this from the reddit talk with Mike Ferguson, which was very enlightening.
Dodging always avoids dmg, because it is not based on hitboxes, it is just some kind of invulnerability. In my mind not the worst idea. (e.g. no lag, sync problem)

Hi there. I have a question regarding dodging.
When dodging, do you have to roll out of the way of the incoming attack? i.e. roll left or right to avoid an arrow, or would it be sufficient to simply roll backwards due to any dodge action simply negating the incoming attack?
What I am trying to say is, is dodging about avoiding collision or simply knowing WHEN to dodge and not WHERE to?

Both. Dodging does make you 100% evade attacks while you are doing it, however because positioning is so important in the game it is crucial to make informed decisions about the direction you dodge as well.
