Not only not in person, but over the video game chat room.

It’s one thing to an expert to look at a video of a person’s overall behavior and make an educated GUESS at that persons psychological state, but to use specific works or actions in a medieval war game and make it your foundation for the study is outright hilarious at best, scary at worse.

Not to mention when you start throwing “ racism “ into the mix when describing a bunch people roughly 12-26 on the Internet saying stupid shit for , what is most likely, shock value, rather than pure racist tendencies

Without word filters AOS games would have never survived outside of Warcraft 3. You should have played Dota in its hayday in Warcraft. Racism abound.

The truth is, no matter where you go there will be racist people, or people who aren’t racist saying stupid things.

In league of legends, it blocks the word, and then, depending on the word and your prior status, they will actually ban your full account.

The issue is, if you want to just block the word, fine, but then people will find a cleaver way around it. If you want to block the word and enforce and ban, you can really only ban a person from playing you game with a vac ban or not allowing their steam account, but the game is $20 so people can’t easily just make another account and do it again

The VAST majority of players aren’t walking around typing the N word in chat.

I could care less if there was a word filter really, as I don’t chat in the game much anyway, but I’m just saying that I think a word filter might not work as intended.

I noticed both the Bastard Sword and the Messer can only be found via the search bar, they're neither in the one-handed nor the two-handed category (should probably be in both, right?).

Also the page number doesn't update correctly. If you browse the two-handed weapons all the way to the end you're on page 3/3. If you then click on the one-handed tab the page will say 3/2.

Thank you for finding these bugs and I will look at fixing these ASAP!

The swords “class” ( one handed, 2 handed, etc )
Is based on how the weapon is held without using other items ( like a shield ) and in its normal mode ( not its alt mode ). I know this can be confusing, so it might be something I may remove if it gets confusing for some users.

Need some users to test builds

Example of a user’s build :

Wow this is actually really well made. Nice work.

Thanks but I can’t take ALL the credit.I wanted this done right and quickly , so I paid a developer friend of mine to compile the web app based on my UI/UX front-end work, and given the stats I farmed. I’m simply not skilled enough in Node to get this done alone in the time needed ( but I’m getting there ).

What was really difficult about this site is the initial set-up and no API.

Other sites like u.gg and mobafire pull their data from the official Riot API. Mordhau does NOT have an API. This made it super difficult because I had to farm gold to unlock weapons.

In league of legends, saying the N word or something close will usually result in a ban of some kind, almost 100% of the time

Nice effort there, looks good so far.

Random feedback:

  • I don't like how those things today need all kinds of third party accounts. I don't have a twitch account an I'm not interested in one.
  • The design is wasting a bit too much space. E.g., on the weapons list, I only see two weapons on my screen at the same time when there could be 6-8 at least. With a few content updates, that would mean scrolling for ages. Same with the weapon stats, the damage window could be a bit smaller.
  • Would be useful to name the different weapon modes, like "short grip", "long grip", "throw" and stuff like that.
  • Same with special abilities of equipment. Just a short line. Bilhook - "Slashes demount riders". Wooden mallet - "Builds and repairs structures."
  • Builds: The comment line at the bottom should be at the top, so that you know right away what the build is about.

Thanks for the great feedback :)
I’ll add those things to my list

As for 3rd party login, I wanted to offer both twitch.tv and allow users to register with an email or username, however that brings up the issue of a em grabbing.

I wanted streamers to be able to protect their brand, which is why I’m offering twitch login only for now. Thanks for the feedback again

Greetings all,

My name is Ethan ( obviously ), and I am the founder of a new platform Mordhau.gg. After seeing the effects websites like u.gg and mobafire had on the League of Legends community, and being a huge fan of Mordhau, I decided that I wanted to develop a platform that can help newcomers and veteran players alike connect with others in the community,elevate their game, and get solid information regarding Mordhau Mercenary builds and overall gameplay.

That being said, allow me to introduce Mordhau.gg

MordhauGGBanner.gif

Mordhau.gg is a web application that allows you to do the following...

  1. Login with your Twitch.tv account and Create Mordhau Mercenary Loadouts
  2. Link and Share your (or other player's) Mercenary Loadouts.
  3. View detailed Weapon Statistics without having them unlocked in the game, or just on the go ( including alt modes, gold cost, etc ).
  4. Search for specific Loadouts by searching Loadout Name, Weapons Used, "Class" ( Fighter, Archer, etc ), and even Twitch.tv usernames.
  5. Up/Downvote builds...Downvote the trolls, Upvote the builds that lead you to victory.
  6. Add short descriptions to your builds to let users know how the build should be played and used.

A few use cases...

  1. Share builds with your friends without taking screenshots.
  2. Twitch and YouTube content creators can share links to their Loadouts, or use the Twitch.tv chat bot commands to allow users to find links in your Twitch Chat. No more pausing your game to show off your builds or linking to twitch clips.
  3. Link Mercenary Loadouts of players in your tournaments so your viewers know the weapons and armor being used by each player.
  4. Ask for feedback on a build from other players before testing your luck in upcoming ranked and Frontline, or see what other users are upvoting after the latest patch.
  5. Easily find a specific build for "Archers" or "Fighters", adding a defacto "class" system to make it easier to find specific builds, and filter out unwanted weapons.
  6. Easily search Loadouts for weapons directly, allowing you Rapier shield one-tricks to have the burden of looking through real builds removed.

Please understand that this is a BETA build of Mordhau.gg and I am one person and...

  1. Mordhau.gg is NOT run by a clan and is not officially related to Mordhau.com, thus, both financial and technical support is limited.
  2. Because this is basically a solo project, There WILL BE BUGS THAT WILL TAKE TIME TO FIX.
  3. Web Servers cost money, but I will do my best to make Mordhau.gg ad free, cost free, and self funded, as long as I can.

Some of the known bugs including things such as weapon cost being off on some weapons, typos when inputting stats and names, and showing damage tables for shields and non-damaged items...These bugs will be fixed in the near future, but I must remind everyone that without community feedback and support, I will not be able to make the changes that are needed to provide a solid platform for a cool community.

I plan on adding a few features in the future such as...

  1. Ability to edit and delete builds. In the Works currently ( HIGH PRIORITY).
  2. Ability to upload YouTube videos and Twitch Clips to your builds, Added formatting options for the description panel, and screenshot upload, allowing for a more engaging user experience ( MEDIUM PRIORITY ).
  3. User Forums ( MEDIUM PRIORITY; Awaiting user feedback ).
  4. Some Secret Stuff :)

If you are interested in helping with Mordhau.gg or just wish to leave me feedback on the platform, please feel free to PM me here and I'll get back to you ASAP. I hope to get some good feedback and show me where I can improve. Thanks for taking the time to read.

No, I will not cede any ground to the left, They have not added women or non-whites to the game yet and I won't support them if they do I and I will protest them ruining the game I paid for by appealing to people like you. This game is based on european identity and it should celebrate it, white european identity if you want it to be something else go play another game. there is nothing wrong with them making a game for white men. If other people like it sure? Enjoy it. I don't care, but I refuse to play a game where sub-Saharan-African women wear gothic knight armour, and I refuse to not speak up against it and resist it and speak out against it and there is nothing you can do to stop it. It's not a game just about sword combats its a game expression the european collective unconsciousness and history and you want to undermine white identity by design by destroying this representation in pop culture.

Jesus Christ a Voltaire quoter before you write a fucking essay about how mordhau represents “ the spiritual collective unconscious “ of Europe or whatever just find out what is ACTUALLY happening. Girls are being added into the game but you can toggle them off in your game setting easily if you want more historical accuracy. Jfc

Are you up to date on the words of the developer, they said they had no intention of doing that now, I bought the game because it looked like they had a spine and were standing up to this nonsense and saying "no we won't ruin your experience and immersion by appealing to social justice." Now they are capitulating and say that toggle thing was uncalled for to even have in the game which is why multiple people I know bought the game to begin with "these people seem like they have spines they are worth giving my money to even if the game is shit." Which is why I'm here arguing my position whether or not it affects anything is another question, but for the moment I won't stop till the developers have made a choice and the conflict is over which considering the left is the later is never going to happen.

You haven't read their kickstarter page have you?

To be fair, a kickstarter page that old cant be held to every standard they set out. Things are bound to change.

But correct

Toxic chat is only an aspect of "toxicity". It's a symptom of a garbage community, which many of us don't want to be a part of. And it should be in the interest of game companies to keep civil, inclusive communities. Sorry if not being able to spam racial slurs in a video game is having such a chilling effect on your positive freedom of speech.

But there are already a few options YOU have

  1. Mute
  2. Mute and report
  3. Mute and report directly to the devs in discord who WILL ban them with proof
  4. Mute and report them to steam and report them to mordhau developers

I agree with you it’s a symptom of toxicity in the community, but that doesn’t mean the community is lost. Since day 1 the devs have taken this seriously, as well as cheating.

Would you rather a word filter that gets more people upset ( even if not rightfully so ) and have the same word pop up, with ** to “cover it up” , or would you rather right click* mute and report..

This is all just kinda dumb. I focus on chopping heads off of bodies, not the chat.

Edit : for the record. A word filter DOES make it better for twitch streamers. Just throwing that out there.

Sadly a SMALL group of people may give the mordhau community a bad rep, despite the Mordhau community being damn awesome IMO !

We should be able to choose whatever color assignments we want

I disagree

I would rather normal matches like frontline have a choice between 2 colors.

Preferable orange and blue, yellow and blue, yellow and green, something like that.

I’m fact, it would be interesting to have alternating sets of two different color factions that work on different maps as part of lore, but maybe that’s asking too much :) .

Nice collection of stawmen from people that don't hold the position they're talking about lol. I'm one of the people that doesn't think mute is a solution since it cripples the person being abused instead of the one doing the abusing. It's an extremely BAD solution to pander to the people causing the problem by making their target remove a feature of the game (chat) rather than just banning the people doing it for their offence, which is often already against the rules 'officially' anyway.

Can you explain to me how me muting a player for calling me a bad name is crippling ME? I don’t get this argument. It’s like saying , “no, don’t block or unfriend that person harassing you. Just let them harass you because the rules of the platform state it’s against the rules to harass others... they’ll get em!”

Mute IS a solution. Mute is a mighty fine solution. You know, it’s such a good solution that about 10000 games have launched with player VOICE CHAT lobbies with a neat little feature called mute.

It was in every COD. It was in all the Halos on Xbox I believe. Any game that has a VOP or team voice chat has a mute feature.

Muting another player so you don’t have to hear whatever they have to save IS a valid solution. If you think that “cripples” the player, then fine, but that is a solid solution.
