So my question goes to the original video the devs put out, their game won't be about ballerinas and people doing matrix.

I'm fine with the current system of the feints,chambering and such but what I'm finding a little ridiculous is now people are either staring at the sky or the ground in a fight. The dragging needs to be toned down just a little bit.

Not sure of you can even control this from a Dev side.

I know some responses are going to be get better or learn to counter it. My point of this is the devs stated the game would not be allow this kind of stuff.

it's still a perfectly viable mechanic - otherwise stabs would just be pretty useless (and they've just been nerfed last patch).

Sounds like you saying, without the ability to drag stabs they would be useless.

Stabs are far from useless, if anything that can be blamed on specific weapons and the dependency on stabbing. The only way people could ever really say it's truly skill based is if everyone had the same settings and hardware, that's not going to happen on PC anytime soon.

Either that or next best thing "devs" come up with a mode that is based around a somewhat more reality based system, skill ceiling players get to keep doing their thing , people not into meta play can have at it.

Skill based or not, the game is never going to be "realistic" but something within the realm of reality would be nice.

It's like if I fully committed to poking you with a stick, I missed, I'm still in the motion and with the 3 inches between you and the stick built enough momentum to brain you with it.

I get that people are going to grab onto whatever advantage they can, but the fact I can intentionally miss a stab and drag it into you and still get a hit it's questionable at best.

Probably the only thing that still makes no sense is the stab dragging, or the proximity for stabbing

Would it not be the force of the impact, that changes with the weight? The rapier wouldn't have the mass to cut or penetrate some materials, an axe might be slower but the weight is concentrated on a small sharp edge allowing it to cleave or hack through stronger materials.
Where as the maul would more then likely just transfer the impact through the armour or crush it.

The same can be said for both sides of the argument, before you try and start using quotes to push your own view point. People will always follow a herd mentality be it minority or majority, it's the same view point. I'm saying from a selling point, the devs are better off building the game to cater to the masses "while" allowing the "pros" their own corner.

Which shouldn't be a problem as you guys have stated several times you don't enjoy slaughtering peasent's. So explain why building a niche game around the elitest mentality is a recipe for success.

Yeah? In communism or socialism is where a few on the top decide for the rest
Thinking about it more though, I suppose socialism was the wrong comparison, it doesn’t make a lot of sense, but my point was I don’t want those on the bottom to have equal say to the pros

So you want chiv 2.0? Living on fumes. Why should the devs follow a minority voice over a majority?

I'm fucking dead.

Torn Banner killed Chivalry.
They let go of the one person on their Dev team that wrote the majority of their spaghetti-tier code, so they couldn't adjust anything without breaking 3 other things - which they did multiple times.

Let's also not forget the great balance patch of June 2013 that went ahead with no real input from the high level players, and killed the comp community.

The high level players kept Chiv alive looooong past it's use by date, not the casuals. The same high level Chiv players developed Mordhau. They know what they're doing, so don't come for us because the game has a mild learning curve.

Besides that, despite what y'all think, high level players don't give a fuck about farming new players, we want the game to be as nuanced as possible so we have more to learn and more to use when we fight other high leveled players. We want to push the game to it's limits.

I'm not gonna get a boner from killing 3 nobodies on some random pub server, I'm going to get it from rolling someone I know has poured hundreds of hours into the game and gotten real fucking salty in chat.

That's the real reward.

So your telling me that casuals were welcomed and not just murdered for shits and giggles by high level players. Calling bs right there, "pro" players kept it alive because they were the only ones playing.

If the game just bleeds players with no one to replace them, it will end in the same situation, keep it a separate gamemode it shouldn't be an issue if you find it more rewarding fighting players with similar interests

Thats my point the casual crowd will always outnumber the "pro" players, make the base game for casual/all and just make a dual or promod game type for those that want it. pro players killed chivalry plain and simple, they chased new and casual players away. keep it separate from the regular community.
