Yeah, but the same problem still exists. If you're trying to avoid something fast, like a down attack or Finishing Blow, you NEED to use A. If you use S, it's too slow and you get hit anyway. Also, I'm pretty sure the lightning bolt hits downed targets. If I didn't A out of it, I would get utterly raped instead of just slightly raped.
