This. You can twist it all you want but adding females because of 'customisation' will be a bad move for the game eventually and I can assume the reason for it in 2015 also was to swap two flies at once which adds dodging future racist and sexist remarks from the SJW journo's and ppl. All the people countering this with "muh shrek tomato ppl oh no not realistic also" are comparing apples with oranges, those customisations actually have something to add besides customisation: comedy. Monty Python style humor because of the same context. Love women, but not in this context.

That is not what I said.

I know. I agree with what you said and added my own views.

I'm sure you're really immersed with all the shrek, cavemen, tomate, mario, nazis and other cosplays everywhere and, of course, retards spamming megalovania on lutebot just increase that muh immersion feeling

See, with that I call it comedic disconnect. There’s nothing amusing about a chick in plate, but there’s something fundamentally hilarious at seeing six guys in a Shrek cosplay spamming emotes and voice lines. And it’s because at the end of the day this is just a video game friends are enjoying around the world with each other.

No matter how much you tryhard or don’t there’s a significantly large group of people just trying to make themselves and others laugh at a collective joke. The lutbox stuff is a welcome relief for me at least because I can get very frustrated with this game at times, so having something like that, or the skateboarding pavises, or funny cosplays, or really really really ugly face models, it’s a nice breather.

It is, at the end of the day a video game, and anyone taking this game too seriously is going to be sorely disappointed eventually. But my main point is this is a bad argument for the aforementioned reasons. It’s not like the game doesn’t feel ungrounded because of a few dudes having a laugh, not for me at least. I can’t imagine being that much of a fuddy duddy I can’t appreciate a good or even passable joke.

There’s even the carrot on Crossroads, and the various memes in the voice lines the devs have put in that make this game really funny. And that’s just something else entirely, acknowledging this is a big dumb video game people are enjoying around the world. I feel like that has become an avenue of attack and justification for something that doesn’t need to be justified and certainly not in such a clueless way. It entirely misses the point and seems, to me, imply that women in armor is as ridiculous as Shrek in a mercenary company.

It’s a flawed comparison when you consider that one is being presented as normal and the other a blatant joke. And it does a disservice to the devs to reduce their choices and efforts to such petty arguments. B5987D76-0B2B-4F36-93E4-D510A6B7E779.jpeg

Maybe you run into swings of your teammates and they vote you out for that.

This is inherently a problem on the side of the one swinging. I get TK'ed a lot by people who just swing around like mad and when I say something about it I get some cynical edgy reply which says that I should watch out for their swings, reverse logic. On Chivalry most people, when a tk happens, replied with a quick sorry but here they're mostly putting it on you. Maybe since this game holds many more casuals because of the popularity.

And let me just try to clarify something since we're all just talking past each other anyways. I think most people would prefer politeness online, that voice and text chat would be reasonably mature. Some people may find it funny, but I think the majority preference is for some civility.

But lack of civility doesnt mean we think it's some sort of epidemic specific to the mordhau community, or that new and complex systems have to be put in place.

When I say "deal with it," I dont mean that incivility is ok. I mean that as an adult who can't fix every problem in existence, you have to recognize when you're tilting at windmills and prioritize other things

Posts like this are great. I like the way you voice your opinion in that constructive manner. Not in way that is inherently condescending. The thing is imo that, since it’s obviously naive and near impossible to actually influence the negative behaviour this way, it is important to voice the things that are wrong with the game, to make use of the point of a public feedback forum.

The name calling, even teamkilling, vote-kicking and the, for real really nasty ass, trash talking is growing rapidly. I've played 80 hours or so now and I've definitely seen it grow.

how do you people find trash talking worse than actual griefing? I can't comprehend this shit

You people? Yikes. And I don't as I said when it gets real nasty I just disable the chat. But then there are griefers who you can't get around, and their numbers are growing.

I beam the subject of this thread. I for one am not someone easily offended or triggered by random dudes online, but the offensive slurs, toxicity, racism and edginess coming from this community really takes the cake a lot of times. The name calling, even teamkilling, vote-kicking and the, for real really nasty ass, trash talking is growing rapidly. I've played 80 hours or so now and I've definitely seen it grow.

Of course you can disable the chat to ignore the shitshow going on there, but I sometimes like to converse with people in-game to get shit done or just to have fun convo's but It's just sad and literally game-breaking for a lot of people because of the vote-kicks and teamkills.

@ OP just ignore the people throwing ad hominem's at you, there a more people thinking the same as you do.

Sigh, sorry OP but please take your shitty playstyle and skills to the training grounds and practice on how to dodge kicks or just let go of the right mouse button. It is not possible to kick across the entire diameter of a firebomb explosion, so that would have been either a glitch, lag or he just wasn't as far as you thought. Kicks aren't OP it is more likely your dissatisfaction comes from the shield nerf.

It baffles me that no one mentions friend-indicators or don't y'all play with friends? I think it's necessary in games like this where co-op flourishes.

It's literally one of the most suggested features, no need to repeat it considering the developers have already noticed it. I guarantee it will be added next patch.

Ah okay! Thanks, good to know. :)

Please do not add any female characters to this game. That would break the immersion completely. I want to state that i am in no way sexist, but females would not fit in the context of the game. I beg you, Devs, do not fall for the political and over-social justice warriors.

You guys deserve all the good news and positive feedback! The game is a blast and has the potential to be so much more than Chivalry for example ever could have been. There's only one thing that I really think deserves immediate attention also and that is the ability to see your party members in-game. That would improve the co-operability immensely. I see a lot of fellow players on this forum with that same wish. Keep up the good work, godspeed!

I also agree implementing this feature would, imho, greatly improve the total co-op experience. This would also positively influence a team's strengths in tactical situations.

I like the idea but I don't want to look all green. I think an indicator or name above the characters would be more suitable to address this problem. I do miss the friend-indicators!

The party element isn't working with me and my friends. Others don't join with me when I enter a game and I don't join them. Also, are you working on a party-HUD element so that you can identify your party mates in-game? Don't get me wrong I love the game but the co-op experience is not what it should be right now while co-op makes it so much more fun!

Are you saying that those functionalities are already implemented? Because I also can't see my teammates and don't join a game with them I have to manually join them.

Yes, on 1080p with some settings turned down you'll be fine.
