Created with Poll after recent thread...
Feel free to add commentary
They are just too powerful of a thing to be available for free.
The following is just a list of possible ideas that don't involve removing them entirely.
Earn Tactical Resources to buy Horses with
Add a bounty mechanic.
Require perks to be efficient with Horses.
Require perks to attack while on Horses
Horse kills drain tickets.
One per player
...Just Remove Them (for now)
I never use horses, but I still think we should just leave em'. Maybe decrease the amount in crossroads, but otherwise, just use a billhook or place spikes. Or hide. I don't really see them as too much of an issue at the moment.
Well said Bird.
Also, heart for you Mittsies.
One person said maybe make them less prevalent...such as spawn timing and amount available. Even remove them completely from certain maps...specifically Mountain Peak.
I'd hate to see them gone entirely. A huge increase to the respawn time might actually be a good start, that way the field can't just be spammed w horses which is where it really gets awful and diminishes the finer points of the game.
Balance. No removal.
AT LEAST once a map (sorta depending on map) kniggas spout something about horse hate. Very surprised poll doesnt have more votes. Bump to page one
Horse spawn rate needs to be decreased. Not fun playing against a team with 4 horses running through your spawn. Should have frontline servers available with horses disabled as an option. What would help would be an archery perk that did a lot more damage to horses. Right not a horse can just drive by flame bomb a ballista very easily
I think you've confused "official" with "unofficial"...
That said, I voted no. I think the horses will be absolutely fine with some tweaking. Isn't the next big update gonna nerf them anyway? Removing the flinching and stuff, or was that update already released?
Really though my only issue with the horses were that flinching mechanic as well as their ease of use.
If you can't delete the horse, you should define the horse as a weapon. This is interesting. Any map can use your own horse. This is interesting.
For me the main problem is that if you hit horse or rider, he will just ride away, regen and come back. Not much risk for one-shotting people and having high mobility. Could be solved by following (numbers are just for example):
47% of people are bad. Horses are not that hard since they have been nerfed. Anyone complaining about horse is bad, I don't care if you have 400+ hours on the game, and top rank, YOU ARE BAD if you complain about horse.
Remove lance? Maybe. Decrease horse hitbox? maybe.
Increase footsteps? maybe.
Add a way to counter couching? sure.
Still people shitting on horses, and not 1 complaint about catapult, or ballista, or mortar? XD This fucking community, man. This community is astounding.
Simple solution that won't make anyone angry:
1) Lower Couched Weapon Damage to around 75
2) Increase Horse Step volume
3) Decrease Speed of horses marginally depending on health
4) Increase timed stunned after attack w/ horse
5) Make the billhook's hitboxes less frustratingly large
6) Make it so I can use a shield & combo with lance so i can joust mofos tourney style
7) Make it so tier 3 armor isn't knocked down by horses
Makes it a little more balanced, though my ideas are probably a little flawed.
Lower Couched Weapon Damage to around 75
Lower Couched Weapon Damage to around 75
Unironically a good idea because they'll probably still die anyways, and you'll get kill credit, but it won't be an guaranteed death.
It could still deal 100 damage to the head, of course, just not to the torso.
There is no need to remove them. Modding support should allow to turn them off (or nerf) in custom servers though. Then, anyone can choose appropriate server for his preferences...
I've seen Robin's Hood got an unofficial server on FL this weekend (NO HORSES) and there was like 50% players. Sigh...
NooO they already change the game way too much as it is. Do you enjoy different timings on every weapons after every patch?? It's not like the maps are horse racing rinks. It doesn't take long before your average player fumbles and gets slaughtered by six enemies anyway. Try using the horse sometime. It is very enjoyable. Additionally, they are more likely than not helping you win the round. You have all the power in the world to host a server of your own and Max out the horse spawn time.
I do ride horses.
Like <10% of the time if that.
They need to be skill based and have their own retinue of perks/anti-pro horse weapons and specialties. Decrease the number.
