Imho, it's fine if not every helmet is perfectly designed for peak performance. It's also historically accurate the fact that not everyone in an army could afford the peak exemplar of a helmet model.
I'm fascinated by the odd designs that maybe the poor people that went to war had to improvise, sadly, there aren't a lot of finds and accounts of peasant armor.
Ian Lespina has this awesome video sbout the topic:

I suggested it before and i will suggest it again, maybe devs could introduce ugly peasant armor/and or clearly cheaper versions of helmets already in the game.

You misunderstand. I wasn't talking about the quality of the helmet design from a historical standpoint, I was talking about how two of the examples Bodkin posted are mass-manufactured for LARP/costume use and are bad examples because they lack the signs of something made by hand.

No, i get your point brother, i'm just saying that those examples could fit with my suggestion.
¿cheaper reproductions for the common masses? Hooray!
A good thing about implementing this is that devs could go a little creative, while mantaining a standard so they don't make stuff like Chivalry's Rat helm lol.

Slitted Kettle, the wide flat one with the visor, is based off of a modern reproduction, along with having Elizabethan-era cuirass in the game, so I really don't think it is a big deal so long as it is believable. Obviously artistic license is used on all their weapons/armour so they could easily make it look more authentic.

Wolf pelts in the coifs tab,to work like Hoods,so you can be able to have a helmet under it.

If I could have anything from this picture it would be the jousting shield as decorative shoulder armor.

Or the crest on the very last night and the third night. We need more color and a mini shield on the chest may be perfect. A mini shield on the arm may not be a bad thing but I can imagine it looking wierd during animations and flopping around.

But yes @Devs we want mini shields and color for our T3 torsos.

i would prefer having bouche shields be a reskin of the heater shield so i can actually use it in my offhand

Shield variety and skins are pointless as long as shields remain in the crutchy state they're in.

Reduce parry size and stamina costs!

Maximilian helmet, arms, and legs with bearpaw sabatons to complete the set. The helmet could probably use the same armet base model.

Pointed coventry sallet with real shaping to it. Arm harness with large couters.

Sallet's are pretty much what everyone wears. New armory system makes it slightly more exclusive but everyone will still be going for it when they can. More sallet types would be appreciated down the road

ALSO the current sallet has a rim around the visor and helmet... why can't we tint this rim gold to match the rest of our accented armor?

i would love a sallet with a shorter tail and a brow reinforce, and having a gilded border is a good idea too

There is a lack of fancy medium armor, and the high-tier options such as the chainmail coat are not too enticing. Light armour has the Landsknecht set and Heavy has all the fluted and gilded armor, but there's not much for medium armor besides the viking helmet with the cheek plates.

Italian-style celatas with velvet covering and bronze gilt (It would look much better in its prime)

I really like this theme that the progression system sets, you're a mercenary so the more you kill the richer you get. I love it.
