Yes there is - Being out of place.

And secondly, I do declare my disagreement that a Katana should play the same as longsword...
... What would be the fun of that other than short lived visual pleasure?

The way Katana was implemented in Dying Light for example made it a fun weapon to use due to diagonal cutting etc. which was very pleasing and felt great... Making it just a skin to longsword/GS/Messer would kill all that potential.

Just wait for a good mod and it will be much better than just a silly out of place skin.

He may have a good friend who taught him. Probably good at other games/fighting games too.

This or any of the other reasons why some might learn something faster than others...

... I now have 200 actual play hours on Mordhau and I am poop compared to some of my friends who were better than I am now during the first week of the launch. Some few people seem to grasp the more advanced techniques seemingly instantly. Then again, I am astonishingly far better in some other things in real life than they are...

It is all just different skills to which we are more or less inclined to pick them up or have tremendous troubles with.

I for one am absolutely horrendous at learning/performing choreographed movement such as complex dance moves, martial arts belt tests that require memorizing sequences of moves to perform... Or the advanced moves on Mordhau for the matter...

In general most people suck at most things, but can excel in few things better than most.
What those things are depends on the individual.

The good news is that even if you aren't one of the fast learners in some area, tons of quality practice can still make you great.
There is also downside to talent, which is that when it comes to mastery, those with talent rarely end up being able to compete with those who are more dedicated, yet obviously they are not mutually exclusive either as talent is also a misnomer for someone who has just dedicated a lot of time to hone their skill.

Another explanation is also that some people are not willing to admit they spent 3000 hours in a game and just cut one zero out and troll you :)

As much as I would love to swing one in the game, people who say it would be out of place are completely right.

Just be patient, there will be mods (or even DLC) set entirely in Medieval Japan...
There is no way that is not going to happen eventually.

If you want to be good as you'd want to be when it comes, it would be best to go practice fundamentals in duels etc.

My compliments as well.
Indeed. Great eye for color, details and nicely authentic Medieval style too.

You seem to own the whole cosmetics department...

Great to see some of the pieces I've completely ignored shown beautifully - New buying aspirations for change!

Yeah, I'm really inspired of the middle ages and I usually get inspiration from photos of reenactment and artworks.

That shows! - Keep it up

Two Kniggas I made trading weapons for more perk points.

His sword looks smaller than my penis

When you quote it like that, it seems a bit shy from 1cm

some console commands that i can't remember right now, it's explained in one of the highest rated community guides for the game though

FPS 2 million?

That's how I play sometimes. Add a few more fps, but not much.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tIghWgTHrDQ
console commands:
r.mipmaplodbias 99
r.skeletalmeshlodbias 99

i put both on 500, dunno if it's different from 99 but it definitely adds 20 or more frames on average for me.

Gotta try this today, thanks my kniggas!

"Please, if you are a leftist, don't feel obliged to be politically correct. Don't be afraid to think. One great version of not thinking is how immediately if they (pc leftists) don't agree with you, you are labeled a fascist. But that's laziness. People find something they don't agree with and instead of thinking, they think about something we all agree was a bad thing - Whop! You are a fascist and so on"

  • Slavoj Žižek

The irony here is that people on your side of the debate have fallen victim to the very thing this quote is cautioning the politically correct crowd for. He says that disagreement will immediately get you slapped with the fascist moniker without any thought required. Yet, in this thread people are immediately being labeled SJWs for saying that it's alright for women to be in the game. Someone accused fucking Lazy of being a "progressive" earlier and he's a right wing ancap libertarian lmfao

There is no irony here in my opinion as any "side" of a debate by default consists of lazy thinkers or rather non-thinkers who have set their identity based on ideology and feel that identity, i.e. their constructed false sense of self is threatened and thus feel attacked whenever in a debate with anything that opposes their ideology.

I hope by my "side" you referred me being of opinion that I think a careless input of choice of allowing female characters could be easily immersion breaking as obviously it is not a historical simulation, there is still a wide zone between Medieval setting with loose historic accuracy (could be called fiction) and then all out fantasy. Someone earlier compared Mordhau to Wolfenstein, which in my opion makes a gross error between differentiating the two, or rather not differentiating the two.

And if by my "side" you refer I was right wing, then you'd be completely wrong.

I am all for female characters if the implementation consists of carefully measuring what it means for immersion.
For that upon implementation I'd like there to be really good voice actors and possibility to turn females off in at least Frontline.
And once again, this is for immersion reasons alone because the game is set in Medieval battlefields, features a range of historically accurate weapons and armor even if from different periods etc. just for the reasons of variety which is a MUCH smaller stretch to make than having 50% of the battlefield consist of women, which takes the setting much further towards fantasy genre.

I think people of "your side" should not have such a hard time understanding the above if they actually think about it.
Sure there are trolls and those who interpret others unfairly on any side of any argument, always.
That does not automatically mean though, that everybody on that other side can be characterized by their lowest denominator, which is pretty much the point of Žižek.

Again, if Mordhau was made a fantasy game rather than historic fiction, I would like there to be non-human races etc. too.
And no, in my opinion Horde mode is not a big part of the game, the real game atm. for me is Frontline and dueling.

Immersion matters to me and I hope that these differences will be solved eventually intelligently for both parties.

I'm always a fan of realism and simulation and I can only hope more will be introduced later via modding.
Those who like more arcady / casual gameplay imo these days have plenty more options on the menu anyway and will most likely get whatever they want.

I love to sit on my brain all day long and chill with my pipe indeed!

I'm coming around a bit though, would definitely want to see female characters on duel servers and then when it comes to Frontline I would just want ability to toggle off if needed

I run 2 duel servers, but I'm open to suggestions on events, modes and things like that. We mainly do duels, but often just fuck about. Today we had a little duel competition where people lined up on either side and let 2 people fight at a time, last man standing style.

I hope this doesn't break any rules for advertising servers or anything, but here's the details if you'd like to hop on.

30 person duel server - Contraband +Pit + Tourney only
217.163.30.47 - Located in germany

12 person duel server - All maps
95.179.247.243 - Located in germany

If you just search "nl.ie" under deathmatch you will find both of those servers, or use the open command with the IP in console.

I created a discord for them earlier, but nobody is in it yet.
https://discord.gg/jVMavRC

Once APIs and RCON functionality open up I plan on developing chat bots and things for these servers, to help enhance events and game modes.

Cheers! I will check it out soon!

Which one
Oh, fuck it
I'll post (almost) EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM
My Dudes Uncompress.jpg
(View Image to see them all in high res)

That's everyone of the ones I use, it's missing a few builds I don't really use like peasants but whatever. Looking to get to 100 so I can roll 1d100 and go for whatever character is in the numbered spot.

Great idea for the presentation of them all, I am at or very close at 100, also have different "armies" as complete sets and like your 1d100 idea too! Hail!

Isn't there going to be a option to toggle women on and off?

I could need that for my wife.
badum-tss

Hehe, I don't have one for I prefer the off setting 80% of the time.
As can be seen in this thread, there is no space for well enough reasoned counter-arguments, heck, them not once addressed.

Made an album of all my Kniggas so far. https://imgur.com/a/ASPdW
This customization system is actually so good, but I kinda wish everyone didn't have a severe barrel chest. There's something very odd about how the torso looks, even with clothing/armour over it.

This is some of the best stuff I've seen. Very good job.

I try and stick to making historically accurate builds. My best one so far is my 14th century knight. I kinda wish we had pigface bascinets though instead of the huge and probably cavalry-intended hounskull.

14th1.jpg
I'm trying to imitate the baggy jupon that many knights found in style at the time like this: Dreamarmor.jpg

Another knight

As much as I love the customization and many others do, I sincerely hope we have more options in the future, and some of them historical so I can look something like this

Good work Sir!

I really do hope that there will be some much more historically serious mods in the future hardcore immersion and simulation in mind.

I don't get why people are complaining about the devs adding females AND getting all political about it. This game isn't a medieval simulator and we don't live in the 1200s.

It's not going to hurt anyone for us to have representation in game and it will add diversity to the character models.

Plus one of the devs said you would be able to hide female models client side so there is no reason to continue complaining.

I would damn love to play the game, immersed into feeling like I indeed was in the 1200's.
That is the whole point of playing a Medieval game... To feel like you were in Medieval times and not the Modern era.

It does not hurt anyone per se, but it does hurt immersion. The feeling, the ambience.

"Diversity" is very much a political ideology based demand, so you complaining about the thread getting political is a bit odd.

I am not xenophobic by any stretch of imagination, since I got my share of that in my childhood so I do understand the struggle.
However all I care about is game immersion, game immersion, game immersion.

I think there should be some kinds of pitch limits for example to limit high pitch voices (esp. Foppish) to some skinny bards for example... But that degree of immersion integrity has been sacrificed for Monty Python kind of reasons I'd say, and would indeed love to play the game modded much more towards simulation

  • You do understand that people demanding women into the game is the equivalent of people demanding for more simulation instead of just resisting the game sliding towards fantasy genre, right?

Can you also see that while doing so you also get personally attacked, all sorts are labels are put on you etc. and none of your actual arguments are addressed and just bypassed?

Some do not care about preserving realism or even lose Medieval setting at all and just want to be entertained their way and there is an endless way to push the game that direction. Some games have been utterly destroyed this just listening to never ending demands to change the game towards casual direction in every sense of the word possible.

I see zero problems going free to choose 50/50 male/female character creation in Horde/BR mode as it is already so far towards fantasy genres anyway as there are ogres and magical walls that kill you.

When it comes to Frontline however, it is much more serious when it comes to its setting and there I am OK with women added if they can be toggled off for those of us who want to play it like it was 1200's and not the current day political landscape in a Medieval setting. Thank you for understanding.
