gore is very high priority especially in a game like mordhau. killing should be satisfying af so the combat feels good, a 2D blood particle won't do, im talking bout sof2 like gore, blood stains on clothing, chunks, animated blood pools, 3D wounds, blood streams and physical blood spilling, ragdolls that twitch and have weight to them. some of you guys are gonna say that shit like getting the game on kickstarter and bla bla is more important, no. These are small but important details, killing should be rewarding. We should see the damage we have done.

There are no height changes and hitboxes stay the same regardless of male or female. Same goes for the body customization.

There is a neutral stance, we just don't switch to it automatically anymore on disarms and switch to fists instead, which is basically a "weapon". You can switch to it manually though with 0.

I think this game looks very promising and only have a small suggestion about animations. A pet peeve of mine that I've seen in some other games.

When sheathing a weapon or changing to your fists I think it would look better if the player adopted a "neutral pose" like they do in mount and blade or jedi knight, instead of the exaggerated boxing pose that you can't get out of like in chivalry. In Chivalry the weapon animations poses looked less threatening and aggressive then the unarmed pose. It should really be the other way around as many players unequip their weapons to signal that they are not a threat to you and it looks odd if there are 10 players out of combat but looking like they are in combat.

I haven't seen what it looks like in Mordhau but incase it looks anything like it does in Chivalry I thought I should mention it.

I disagree, a fighting style is more influenced by it's user's comfort and abilities than efficiency

Some other things:

-It doesn't have to be a 3d wound. 2d is great too if it looks decent.

-Adding to what carl said, it would be nice if ragdolls would have different starting speeds depending on the weapon and type of atack. So if some guy gets killed by a dagger thrust, he would just fall. But if the finishing blow would be let's say a maul swing, the guy would be flung to the side with great force.

Big weapons have more ragdoll force then smaller weapons. Ragdoll force is also a bit randomized so that you do not get the same ragdoll everytime. The more damage something does, the less chance for a death animation since they feel bad compared to ragdolls on high damage/slow windup weapons such as the sledgehammer. Kills by leg hits force a ragdoll everytime.

Sell the idea to another developer for cash money.

Inb4 a new For Honor cause the dev realises how much work a detailed combat system like this would be and sells out to a publisher.

Better graphics, and we added cats. Were we filming? Maybe.

Can't find a better thread title.

Something neat that i often see in shows and more rarely in games is when two fighters are very close to each other, they cross blades at the hilt and mutualy push each other.

Would be nice to see that when parrying and/or chambering a face hugger.
(What is the current way to counter face hugging atm?)
