Can we ban it, please? Like ranged weapons?

It's not fun. Either you run it just in case the cunt your duelling has it or you don't and they get 1 extra hit. Sure you can read someone who is bleeding out but it's so unbearably lame when they bring it.

Its 3 points. Its better than your opponent spending it on 3 cleavers.

Flesh wound needs to go. It's basically an extra hit to kill you. Feels ridiculous to "win" a duel but get punched to death by a guy on a Flesh Wound timer. Get rid of it asap.

if you cant defend yourself for 5 seconds should you really be playing ranked mode in the first place

Double digit IQ logic. If I'm fighting someone at my skill level, he could easily get 1-2 accels or drags off in 5 seconds, which could be all the time he needs if he happened to damage me enough to 1 hit kill. If I could easily defend everything my opponent does that'll mean I'm a smurf on a smurf account fighting people below my rank. Imbecile.

Flesh wound does seem pretty broken for duels

I think people forgot this cost 3 points.

Let's assume you run 3/3/3, you have 7 points left for weaponry (Greatsword, Longsword + Arming, or whatever you like for 7 points). If you take Flesh Wound, you are reduced to 4 points (Bastard Sword, Mace, 2 Arming, etc...).

Now you could have less armor if you want FW + better weapons, but that's also less hits you can take depending on the armor removed + weapon you face. It's one more hit you can tank for one more hit you can't. Having FW cost 3 points, which is the same cost as +1 armor tier everywhere, seems fair to me.

Now I can understand people find Bastard/Mace/Arming annoying to face (or broken), and even more with FW on top of it, but it sounds like it's more of a weapon problem than a FW problem.

I mean, if you put your opponent in FW state, you can go full defensive for those last 5 seconds (I know it can be hard if you are low on stamina, but they spent point on that skill after all : it must be an advantage for them in some parts). You can also, and I know it's easier said than done, finish him off with a headshot.

its much easier to defend yourself when you dont have to attack. and if youre going to throw insults at me over a shitty perk in a beta gamemode maybe you are the imbecile and need to calm down

I don’t duel so I don’t really know, but I’m guessing that if you kill your opponent while flesh wounding, you “win” the duel. But do you really win if you’re mortally wounded? I’d call it a draw, really.

It counts as a win, which is what makes it so stupid.

Well yes and no. They spent 3 points in it, why should it only helps getting a draw at best ?

i say remove perks

Yeah this is why I'm not on board either:

  • FW costs 3 points, points you could've otherwise spent on better armor or weapons.
  • FW is literally designed to only be useful less than half the time, since losing your right arm or getting hit in the head means you get little to no value out of it respectively.
  • It's only five fucking seconds max. Someone with FW isn't gonna play defensively during those five seconds. You know they're gonna attack - if you consistently die to such a level of predictability then FW isn't the issue here, you are.

It's just a perk that costs points. Are we going to ban T3 chestplates next?

This would be true if lower cost meant worse weapon, which is not the case, especially in duels.

If you want to play BS you have one of the best weapons and you can easily afford Flesh Wound on top of it. 1/2/1 Mace (8 pts) htk-wise is superior to 3/3/3 LS (14pts).

imo there shouldn't be any perks in ranked primarily because you don't know what perks your opponent is using when you start the fight, unlike armour and weapons which you can see straight away.
