If you played the second one before, you might get confused a bit in the beginning (I know I was since the whole thing worked differently in Wots2).
Basically it goes like this:
If the enemy gets the red icon above his head - Pull, heīs trying to push you
If he gets the blue Icon - Heīs trying to pull you, donīt attack, you can kick or throw him instead
If he blocks - Push and hack away
It gets pretty easy to pull and push most enemies after a bit of practice but I still fall for their own pulls...but then again I just forged my first legendary weapon so I should be fine against most enemies.
What really worked for me was finding a weapon with a stance I like (I love the draw-stance, itīs so badass). That and unlocking dual-wielding, it makes the game SO much easier until you get your hands on decent weapons...it also helps to know where to get money and remembering that you can kill merchants to get all of your spent money back
