Hitting between the armour isn't hitting the armour, and we're obviously talking about using the blade.

Yea, also with a staff you still have a more reach and can generate more power.

Also suposedly, you can do Mordhau grip without worrying about cutting yourself but i have only seen videos of people hitting stuff with a Mordhau grip, never trying to parry or spar with it. I'm guessing that parrying a big meaty weapon (something swords are already not good at) may become dangerous when handling the edge like that.
Again, that's just guessing i can't say for real how it would work.

All of this without even speaking about how hard it would be to actually exploit a gap in someone's armor when that someone is actually trained to fight in armor.

Presumably you'd wear leather or mail gloves if you were in a battle, so no need to worry about cutting yourself. Of course a staff (particularly one with some steel on the edges) would be more effective at causing concussions than a mordhau grip.

My preference would be for a sword to do very little if any damage when hitting plate, and instead make hitting vulnerable spots a necessity. But muh realism isn't what most people want, unfortunately.

That said, I did see a two handed sword penetrate plate before before, but it certainly wasn't a killing strike, the plate was immobile, it was an overhead two handed swing, and the sword was a fucking katana, so doesn't even belong in the game (a European sword did Jackshit against it, oddly enough; people usually agree the latter is superior).

So yeah, blades shouldn't do much damage to plate.

Mods will come and many people want muh realism mod so we will be able to try it eventually.
Regarding the test you mentioned against plate, could you provide with the video/source? Like, penetrating plate with a sword is outright imposible, one could say that a katana is more effective at cutting (especially if the longsword that is being compared has the anti-armor design) but even then, a properly made piece of plate shouldn't get much more than a scratch. Give video pls.

Reminds me of Colosseum, that map needs so badly to be remade for Mordhau.
