Usually the last to get the lock wins. For example if you lock on and go to strike, but then he does the same to you a split second later he will get you. No idea why it works like this, but it does.
Yeh, I find that happens too, Last person to strike hits first. I guess its cause you then have a shorter distance to go before hitting the opponent as he is coming to you.
Only technique i have with sword is either try and hit them in the back (one hit, one kill) which is the more stealthy approach or just spam the trigger while at close range. I dont think there is a certain way to make sure you kill them everytime unless you get deep down into all the maths etc working out the timing etc.
