Voice pitches (your own and your character's) not matching might be also strange... but we could give it a try -while in Alpha - and see how it works in a "controlled" environment.

No HUD, no health recovery (other than from bandages), no 3rd person and vision restricted by helmet would be nice to have on some servers. Maybe we get a mod like this from the community.

Good research! The most common case seems to be the 1 feather sallet (or even on a bascinet) and looks like a feature of distinction (several images represent Saint George killing the dragon). On the other hand, the plumes used on armets and frogmouths seem to be in the context of a tournament or hastilude.

No to which of the above posts?

To flamboyant plumes as depicted by romanticist painters in the XIX century (which based themselves on ornamental plumes found on coat of arms carved in stone from the XVII century and later). Plumes were probably present on some very late helmets used by noblemen, but they must have been purely anecdotical as their general absence in contemporaneous tapestry and paintings demonstrates.

I would remove the stab from it - to detract part of it's advantages - (or make it deal insignificant damage) and use the alternative grip key as the way to make it move in circles over your head.

Helmet liners? (I'm not sure how they should be called)

Alternative use of viking helmet (this one can work as an unrealistic, but quite dope "Light" tier variant)

It would be great to have a map to train the different aspects of combat that includes:

  • a jousting field with stables & lances on the sides

  • a certain amount of enclosures or "rings" for duel / basic training purposes.

  • dummies to practice jousting or combat (see images below)

The map could be empty for normal PvP or include NPCs as stationary teachers that speak the specifics of combat (similar to Chivalry's tutorial bot), but also NPCs that keep spawning from a gate to practice a specific movement.

It's probably the least of the devs preoccupations right now, but an empty map of this sort can be easily built after the game's release (or could be done as a custom map, similar to Chivalry's "Duelyard"). The key of this idea is that once the playerbase expands after release, dedicated servers / clans could use this for their own training and as a bootcamp to teach new players.

The map should include enough variety of games and exercises so that it is enjoyed even by veterans to stay around (and thus act as teachers once casuals appear). Even some popular/ traditional historical medieval games could be included in some of the rings ("polo using a hen" or scoring points "taking a handkerchief from point A to point B" in a melee or fist fighting field)

if they consider more outlandish regions i would hope they include them in a seperate game as the original would end up looking like for honor or some other shit game with no real art direction or design consistency

I think the same. What I've advocated for, in previous occasions, is that future "Eastern" or "Middle-eastern" packs should come with a label or tag on the garments linked to "Blue" or "Red" team so that all players using those clothes have to bunch up on the same team. Servers could have the final decision over using this "team" restriction or not.

The tag could also restrict the clothes with which you can mix them (example: you can only use an arabic shoe with other arabic clothes or clothes which were used by all cultures).

This would be a good way to save the game's cosmetical consistency and have the opportunity to have historical confrontations (example: Teutonic Order against Rus or Crusaders against Ayyubid Sultanate etc.).

And a "clear all" button in every subsection (particulary for the outfit) would also be more agile than having to select "Nothing" on every tab again.

Just to let you know. Yesterday, playing on Grad I saw an invisible rider (horse running around by its own). I'm playing with "utlra" settings. It was a quick glance and didn't manage to take a screenshot of it.

I was just going to suggest something similar: joining EMOTE + VOICE on a custom keybind.

For example, we could say "no" with the "disapprove" emote at the same time. It makes it easier to match voices and expressions, instead of having to memorize lots of combinations and thus avoiding mismatches due to key-pressing mistakes. The range of custom combinations could be smaller, because the goal would be to have a simple and easy selection of them.

Sallets, but also cervelieres are missing to create nice archer & pleb infantry outfits

Here are some interesting armour parts I found:
Pourpoint (based on the Charles de Blois gambeson or doublet model)
