Until they implement a feature to try items or refund recently purchased ones, all you can do is play with the Game.ini file before buying something to see if the armor or weapon you want has patterns, customizable skins etc. This is how I found out that the Crucifix Dagger and Sullen Falchion skins that I wanted aren't customizable, and that the new pieces of armor don't have patterns, thus saving me a lot of money.

So in your case you wanted to try the new chest armors. Create a fresh character and equip it only with a chest armor that has patterns, go to the Game.ini file under C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Mordhau\Saved\Config\WindowsClient, find your character and you'll see something like (ID=23,Colors=(0,23),Pattern=1). This is what defines your chest piece, as you're not wearing any other armor. There were around 34 chests before the new ones were added if I'm not mistaken, so their IDs are probably 35, 36, 37 and so on. Make copies of that character and give each one a different ID until you find the armor you want. With the Pattern value set to 1 it should already change something, try other values as well (2, 3 etc), if it doesn't change then there are no patterns available.

We have one Battle Royale server in SA, however, what you're probably seeing is that nobody is queuing for it. In fact, the battle royale mode is all but dead, peaking at maybe 150 players in EU. That's enough to find matches in EU, but not really in other regions, which are far less populated. It's the least popular mode out of all of our modes.

Not that I mind it but it really looks like you just disabled Battle Royale in SA servers. Battle Royale servers are listed in the server browser for other regions even when they're empty and you could find one for South America during the first two weeks but it's just gone now. I remember being the first to join a BR server using matchmaking so if there is one I should be able to join it*¹, and even asking friends and other people on a duel server to start matchmaking seems to have no effect.

*¹ Just tested this and it still works in other regions, if it doesn't in South America it's because there are no servers.

Oh, lol I'm not familiar with some english popular sayings, it sounded like sarcasm on a rough tranlastion.

Have you tried playing Chivalry again? I did and it feels so fucking old, it's just too slow and simplistic, I don't think I could ever go back to it.

Fuck your threads complaining about people who complain about toxicity. You're absolutely mentally ill if you think anyone on this forum wants to see you shit.

Preach the gospel brother, I can even understand how animation abuse being wrong is debatable. If the game doesn’t get its shit together it will get fucking uppercutted by chiv 2 when it comes out. I want this game to thrive and I know with the right mechanic changes, a tourney / duel system and many other quality of life changes it could appeal to the mass market. Maybe I’m wrong to believe in such a tiny team, but if they could accomplish such a great game I believe in them. time shall tell

So you ask for our opinion and then claim I'm preaching a gospel. Of course everything is debatable, all I'm saying is the lack of content is evident and it's a universal complaint.

Main reason for the decline imo

Main reason for the decline imo is the lack of content. They totally should've waited to launch the game with ranked modes, more maps and mod tools. Current content is insufficient and lacks the quality required to maintain a high playerbase, period.

Second reason, part of the initial success was due to the game being marketed as a battle royale by several medias, which is obviously false and it didn't take long for people to realize that. The biggest gaming website in my country introduced it with an article titled "Mordhau, the medieval Battle Royale that stormed Steam".

Lastly but equally important, lots of people have issues with the gameplay (and I'm not even talking about balance). I'm not saying they should've done better, but most gamers stay away from games that have cheap, rage-inducing mechanics such as feints, drags/accels and animation abuse as win-conditions. Until medieval FPS games can address that, it will remain a niche genre.

To defend against a kick, simply perform a kick yourself (also works for votekicks).

You can already do this to an extent. There's a Game.ini file under C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Local\Mordhau\Saved\Config\WindowsClient (requires show hidden files) where you'll find all your loadouts and also 33 BotCharacterProfiles lines that govern (some of) the bots used in your local matches. Just find the loadouts you want, copy everything starting from GearCustomization and replace it on the bot you want to modify. Or simply make new loadouts in-game at the end of your list (name doesn't matter), write Bot before their respective CharacterProfiles in the files and then erase other bots by the amount you've created.

I haven't really tested much beyond that so I'm not entirely sure how it works, tried using 33 custom bots to guarantee there would be no archers and some of them still spawned with their old loadouts, including ranged weapons. Same thing happened when I deleted 23 bots in the files and kept only 10. Maybe if you keep their names intact and just modify the rest it could work, idk I only copy/pasted the same loadout so it needs more testing, but from my experience replacing them all will at least make the majority spawn with the loadouts you provided.

Buy system + objectives as an alternate win condition could make for an interesting 5vs5 Skirmish in the upcoming ranked modes. It'd surely make the game more appealing for e-sports.

Stamina is absolute garbage and it has been since Chivalry, for the reasons you've already explained very well, but then instead of reworking it you propose we parry weapons with fists. I was expecting more.

I'd propose that stamina, as it is, is just removed completely; maybe replace it by a system that prevents you from doing too many actions in a short period of time, like feinting to change attack directions more than 5 times in succession, although there's not much need for that.

Maybe the game has a few issues, but OP surely has more.

Haven't played it in multiplayer yet but the spawn protection buildings will probably make things even worse; I can still ride my horse through the same places and now players will no longer have damage protection by the time they get to their previous spawn points, where horses used to ambush infantry.

Also, blue can still use the ballista on red base while red can't use theirs. Wtf? That's the first thing I expected to be fixed in the next patch.

Bait aside, any attack past 180º will either deal insignificant damage or no damage at all, those moves are just for the show. I do believe that drags are a bit too much though, which contradicts what the devs have said during development about drags not being as powerful as they were in Chivalry.

But most skilled players will never admit the combat has flaws, any relevant changes would piss them off and they'd put a lot of pressure against it. You'll just have accept it as it is, just like we did in Chivalry when reverse overheads and other ridiculous excessive dragging exploits became a thing and a vocal minority threatened to leave the game if they fixed it.

Loadout organizer, a simple quality of life improvement that would make character management and selection much easier.

You could say the same thing about anything in the game.

Why do we have all these weapon options? Longsword does the job fine.

I could but that wouldn't make sense; different weapons have pros and cons, horses don't. They all die in basically the same amount of hits and some are slow af for no reason. Either give them a significant HP boost to compensate for that or make all horses the same regardless of appearence.

The one with blue clothing has bearable speed although I don't see any advantages over the naked horse type, but the armored one is too slow to fight other horse riders. I just kill it while waiting for horses in Crossroads so a better one can spawn.

Haven't noticed a difference in armor/HP but if there is one it's irrelevant, speed alone makes the naked horse the obvious better choice in all possible scenarios.
