Circle strafing Thralls - Harder now?

Note: This is only for the single melee Thrall camp

I read the notes and the only thing I could see about Thralls combat changes were that they don’t flinch when hit in the legs anymore. I never really did the legs much anyway, I would circle strafe and hit the heads with melee characters and they would rotate too slowly/glitchy that they would never get to swing at me.

After the patch I am having one hell of a time trying to get into the strafe groove now. It’s not impossible but it’s really hard now on certain characters. I can barely do it at all on El Dragon now unless I get a luck hit that makes them stutter backwards or something.

Anyone else having trouble?
