You don't have to parry the backswing of any attacks like in Chiv, so if people do that shit just hit them.

Imo it's better to parry the reverse just to confuse your enemy^^ I mean it happend often to me as i tried to drag very slow that the enemy just blocked my windup and made a riposte. So to parry accidently reverses is the best way to punish spinners.

Yeah if you do that too then their back is turned to you and it's a free two hits.

Spinning is really shitty in this game and easily punishable.

That's the thing. As i said it happened often to me and this thread gave me the idea to punish spinning in that way ^^

It looks too bad ass to get rid of, and honestly, it didn't look that hard to parry.

Thought it was accelerated so I tried to parry on windup, but I guess I was stunned from being hit. didn't expect his swing to come all the way around because it's not possible in my experience. I've seen videos about drags and they do not highlight how to complete a spin like this.

The second swing was a drag, and if you can see that the enemy will not hit the attack all you have to do is wait

if the second swinng was intended as a drag, wouldn't it make more sense for the swing to go the other direction? as the time to hit would be longer?

I can also say that it is not an accident as this is a thing people can do reflexively after 2k hours on chivalry.

i'm not saying this is something that can ONLY happen as an accident, just that that particular one was. i was actually in the game and fought that guy afterwards (i was the roman legionary in the backround), he didn't try to pull anything like that, but he did get some accels on me.

Now I've only played Mount and Blade so I'm not an expert here... but why didn't you just hit him while he had his back to you? Hell you kind of just stood there and let him kill you.

I think that attack looked badass af, like what Jon Snow did in the vid before. That being said, it is the kind of shit that confuses players and makes them feel cheated rather than out skilled. I'd understand if it went away.

TBF tho, at the very least 360s make much more sense than 180s.

I can see someone spinning like that, but I can't see them turning their back, crouching, and then punching upwards. lol

Oh yeah FUCK MIRAGE. How did a game with all those magical people seem so much slower than chivalry.

Also the community on chiv has just been like 20 people who consistently play, and then people who come from the sick sales.

Gotta say it, it did look cool and the movement looked like it could generate power and all but i'm on the "no chivalry pls" side too.

idk... these attacks clearly aren't effective, if you simply move a bitthey'll miss cause lf the turncap. And I think it's fun that u can fuck around and do silly spins when fighting if you're not being serious.

Like doing sick backflips in Rocket League.

Knight 445 1074

The thing about that attack in OP's gif is that it could've been avoided in several ways;
As the swing clearly starts release past the head, a patient player could notice this and wait for the blade to come back around to parry.
As the swing was completely horizontal, giving it the maximum arc it needs to pull this off efficiently, the player could duck the swing. Matrixing is something that even new players should constantly practice, as it is currently a crucial factor in defensive gameplay and baiting. Binding crouch to an easier-to-hit key such as space definitely helps.
If you can acknowledge the opponent's weapon speed while he is spinning, you can also attempt to chamber it. After pulling off such a crazy move, most players would have trouble blocking it.
However, the windup speed of OP's weapon is too slow to outright attempt a hit during the enemy's attack, as his opponent's weapon is faster and already in release.

Honestly, the turn cap could probably be lowered a few notches, but spinning attacks aren't much of a problem anymore with reverses gone.

I'm about to start in all caps, you guys missed my point. Overpowered or not overpowered, It's the fact that this mechanic is not explained in tutorial, documentation, anything, anywhere.
