Love how marox just started a war with this thread and now he's not responding cause he died of laughter

Ehem

We're not going through with it, it's clear that some backers would feel cheated and that's not really what we want. So our official stance will be no upgrades -- thanks everyone for their input.

The problem is the diversity of weaponry, you have quite some middle ground ones (especially among swords) where assigning a weight value may be quite a strong balancing factor or either a minuscule, supefluous one. Players should feel free to pick any combination they want without having to worry about too much, weapon slots/space and armor are enough.
Maybe im wrong and it's worth the try in the alpha, we will have to see i guess.
Still, as Lazy pointed out, weapons had weight in the slasher days but as far as we have been told by the devs themselves, now they don't. They must have their own reasons.

Sellsword 2611 2104

Yep, while i love to perform obliterating cudgel charges, when it comes to fighting toe to toe i beg to the gamble gods if im not playing maa.

Sellsword 2611 2104

When Val feels like it. Seems to be quite some work to do.

Sellsword 2611 2104

while realistic yes, it would alter game balance and perception for the players widely. Too many factors (Jax explains it magnifically), i not saying people could not get used to it but it would somewhat be like having customization options changing the weapons stats: interesting and realistic but bringing too much shit into the table and thus making it incredibly difficult to balance.
And as you say, if we were full realism, the more weight people carries, the more damage they should do while not back pedaling and stuff. It should be left for realism mod.

Sellsword 2611 2104

Hey Daemonas, glad to see you.
Affect the weight in which sense? Like armor does with movement speed? No they don't, nor the weapon you have in hand nor the others you may carry.
I can't remember right now other way in which weight is relevant. Explain pls.

Sellsword 2611 2104

Fine, while i still think the exclusivity argument was flawed, i respect your decision guys and sure it wasn't an easy one to make.
¿Now is this thread ready to be closed?

Sellsword 2611 2104

hey it made me giggle.

rip.

Again, i would consider protecting the identity of the people in that photo, especially if you don't have their consent to be published in here.

edit: damn it Eru, also you look like the victim of a molestation with that eye censoring.

By any chance was the map belmez a reference to the siege from the 1981 film Excalibur? I noted the hanging bodies hidden in the 2nd stage of the map are also a significant reference.

oh yea who else like dis film?

I certainly like the film and was inspired by it when doing Belmez!! I think Senturion you are the first person that has noticed & pointed out this reference and my small tribute to the film with those hanging corpses!

The siege was filmed in Cahir castle and you will probably recognise this first image:

Now i can't watch this without imagining all of those people yelling silly phrases and kicking each other into the water.

Key word 'acting', also don't forget the emotional attachment part. I should also make it more clear that this was in response to you partly yes but also aimed at others less mature than you Humble.

Fine then, sorry for the miss interpretation.

The problem here guys is that both arguments have good points, and people from each party are arguing/discussing for what they believe.
I felt that i had to say something while i should have just voted since i could not speak without expressing my disappointment and disgust. Sorry if i ofended anyone or something.
I would like to see what devs think about all of this and what are they going to do.
Seems like a middle ground is the best way to go in order to leave both sides happy somehow.

@Goatie said:
Acting like we don't give a shit about the development team or using it as an emotional attachment to your side of the argument is pointless as everyone here clearly gives a damn about them as a lot of us were here pre-kickstarter discussing the game.

Woah, stop right there, i never said that.

Sellsword 2611 2104

I have spent half an hour trying to write something not insulting or controversial but i can't help it. I understand where you people come from but im genuinelly disgusted by this whole exclusivity argument. Like, seriously, even if there were 1000 counts, this game is going to fucking skyrocket, i have no doubt it will hit 1 million copies if things go horribly wrong. Chivalry was practically abandoned developement wise after the first year and it sold more.
More money for the devs will only further ensure success, and they fucking deserve it. That's all i have to say about this.

Sellsword 2611 2104

Seems like this thread is ready to enter the Valhalla, mods pls.

Sellsword 2611 2104

Man, i appreciate you taking the time to search for all of this stuff, seems like slings aren't THAT rare in medieval art, seeing a full plate man with a shield and a sling is quite interesting.
Again thanks man, but with Jax's post and my reply to it, it actually covers what it could be said for the sling staff. Im pretty busy (and kinda lazy) at the moment and i think the devs will notice the suggestion already with these posts.
Have your like Eric, you beautifull man.

Sellsword 2611 2104

Yea in the edition that right now im too lazy to do, i was going to point out that probably having three sling weapons would not be desirable, maybe with a middle point between the short and long sling will be fine. Also i thought that the shield was ok since the short sling would have basically throwing weapon range and the shields you could pick would be the smaller ones or only the smallest one. The smallest shield we know off now seems to barely cover a torso, unlike chivalry's round shield that javeliners wield which is basically a viking shield.
I also agree in that the sling staff could be at second tier too, especially if there isn't a distinction between short and long sling.
An alternative melee mode for it should be on the crappy side, i can see the salt bursting in several dimensions otherwise.
