I mean he's not wrong that chambers cause a mess of a game. Every mechanic has been tied together so much from a 1v1 environment that untangling that to change the meta to a healthier one or help team fights is a big fucking task. You can play it to git gud and just ignore it all but I find it even less fun then competitive chiv in its current state. The only satisfaction I get is hard reading feints, THATS IT. Landing hits feels crap cos it's either an insider or a neutral almost impossible to read drag with no inbetween. Dodging is already somewhat too easy because of gimped turn caps. Literally trying to change any of this will just wreak havoc on other mechanics. Chambers are also partially responsible for the spammy gambling playstyle we see everywhere. People are encouraged to just keep inputting all the time because chambers buff your defence with offense.
It's at the point where I'd almost rather reverse overheads over these instant attacks and unreadable drags. I could at least reliably parry reverses in chiv by reading body movement and easily parry drags. Here everything is always so neutral looking. I think things should be readable and the skill should be changed into team fights where the pressure will make everything less readable in a natural way. Trying to keep the 1v1 ceiling high and the focus will only lead to things staying unreadable and people will just stop caring.
Yeah I've come close to uninstalling because I'm frustrated with the combat and I have no good casual mode to play to get away from competitive. If updates are going to always take this long I think I might end up just moving on if Chiv 2 or something else comes along. Possibly pubg.
I'd like to see horsemen get ejected if their couched weapon collides with objects lol.
Agree on all
I already die enough in 1vX because little creatures just spam and occasionally make me clash and in doing so the time it takes to cancel kills me. I'd rather that not become a core part of the game when the game is spammy enough as it is.
Feints are completely fine, and this is coming from someone who couldn't read them at all in chivalry. I can hard read pretty much any feint so I'll only fall for them if they time it well with a good mix up and body movement. Spamming them with body movement is just as ineffective at high level as standing still and feinting is at intermediate level. If you calm down and focus on your reading you can go far, unless it's a bastard sword of course.
If they make changes to feints and punishing them is more consistent i think people who play like tards will be destroyed easier instead of bobbing up and down and gambling so the problem should sort itself out eventually. Swing manipulation itself can always be fine tuned, or at least i hope.
I like: the groundwork for the combat as it has more potential then chiv
I don't like: the current implementation of drags and accels that are as fast if not faster then reverses and drags where you can't see wtf it's doing because of limited fov and things looking more 'neutral'.
5v5 is cancer TBH. But I agree they should push it as a team game and not 1v1 drag accel simulator.
I agree some of the fucked up ones need to go. There are so many insta attacks and drags that don't look right that's it's kinda off-putting even coming from almost 3k hours in chiv. I like drags and accels but I don't want to play a game of insta hits and delays that dont match up to what you see again, I'd rather just not play melee if it's going to repeat chiv like that.
I KNEW ducks became too easy and more frequent all of a sudden.
Duelyard and Arena have promise but Arenas lighting is unplayable. Duelyard needs to scale some things down that are ridiculously huge. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PEOPLE, BUILD YOUR LIGHTING. Also thank you for maps.
Oh you sweet summer child. It's more playable then chiv ever was at high pings and even at 16 ping there's some things I cannot parry which are probably the same things that get you.
Shaman is a top player and can fight against all of that. Fast attacks are virtually the same up to 80 ping. I have 16 ping and sometimes fail to parry the same things that catch high ping players, it's just the game and peoples brains working against them.
Hello Francis how are you doing today, how's the kids.
Imo camp SHOULD be a night rainy map. The dull greyish green it has atm is boring as hell. Even the Chiv 2 trailer did it well in the forest/castle map. That being said shadows are way too dark In interiors so maybe they just suck at lighting right now.
Idk shaman seems to dominate with his ping, but I think it messes with his drags.
I think this is the only issue I've seen with giving people statistics. People tend to base their balance ideas PURELY around numbers and not how an actual weapon plays.
I've taught people an hour a WEEK who are now better then most noobs. It's not the time you put in, it's how you use your time. With most people they want to skip duels and asking questions like they are going to become a god out of nowhere. I've even made friends by teaching people so it's one aspect of the game I like.
