Right, because that totally would not result in people playing super defensively and as such making the game unbearably stale.

That is why parry should not really be a button but the game should be based on chamberings and make them a bit simpler to pull off and feints could still exist but with a cool down.

While I hate the shield users as much as the next guy in Frontline, I'm not sure how I feel about the current state of the kick against shields.
When I see a shield guy alone I know it's a free kill. All I have to do is kick into an attack, repeat, and repeat in case he's not dead. Lone shields became extremely weak, but they weren't that impressive to begin with. The annoying things about shields remained though. I'm thinking about the fact that the shield seem to cover a huge area on the side of the user, even beyond the model of the shield. Flanking and hitting from the side never seem to work unless you're sitting literally behind him.
Currently shields can prove useful in a group, they prevent wide 2 handed swings from cleaving the entire group, while being relatively safe from kick spam. They're weak in a 1v1 situation, but they can simply put the shield away and duel without it.

Quoted for truth

@Deadmode Conspiracy theory? What the fuck are you talking about. And quit defending SJWs you moron.

See what I mean? You come across like an immature child, especially using terms like 'SJW'. The fact that people can't debate a topic without just resorting to insults is pathetic. Great social skills.

And by 'conspiracy theory', I'm referring to @Botas repeated narrative on this forum that the developers have a secret bias against his preferred playstyle.

Fuck off SJW.

Is it really that hard for shield users to either:

  • walk backwards when defending
  • not hold their shield up 24/7?

How kick works against shield rn is a good thing, it keeps it from being a crutch for bad players and forces you to learn the game even if just a little. You still have the advantage of long parry times and being OP in team fights.

Is it really that hard to use your brain and not say retarded shit?

"This is the worse gaming community I have ever joined" That's a lie and you know it, jackass. "toxic" lulz he said toxic. SMH You're an SJW twat throwing a hissy fit. Shame on you, grow some balls you fucker.

Because they refuse to acknowledge the imbalances in the game and will act like little bitches when someone points out the clear biases this game has, not because someone told you fucking "negro" on the chat and you cried about it like a little bitch and now want the United Nations to intervene...

Just make add a "Shield stamina" bar that decreases slowly whenever you hold your shield up and regens whenever you put it down, this will hands down (no pun intended) fix the problem, everyone would be happy, now shield users can't block forever and there is an added mechanic for shields that makes them play differently and kick goes back where it was because right now the range on shields is completely OP and it is basically and "I win button" vs a shield user and people believe this solves the problem because they make shield users drop their shields but it is because of the wrong reasons (fear of being kicked with a broken OP kick).

I do believe though that this will be a possible solution. I agree that adding timed block to shields so sometimes releasing it is mandatory will learn people that use shields that they need to be carefull and be a little better with their timing.
Still I think the buff for the kick was necessary and that the kick still is no where near good enough to justify it's use.

It would be fair if the buff was on EVERYONE not only on shield users.

Buddy the kick only works on ACTIVE SHIELDS the simple solution is to not hold it up like an asshole.

Are you an idiot or what?, it is objectively the worst solution to shields, add a fucking stamina bar that prevents shield users from holding their shield up all the time, problem fucking solved, kick is bad on shields.

I have to say, this has been the worst game community i have joined.

And i mean with how it is overall, trolls, abusive server owners (see this screenshot after i told a guy to stop attacking on sight in a duel server, he said he was the server owner, i told him he very likely is not. And that screenshot was a second or two later. (i want a response from dev btw, if server owners can be this abusive, i don't care if it's his own server and his rules, he was breaking the official mordhau server rules with his actions).

Frontline mode is being trolled by people blocking the spawn, duel servers have trolls building stakes or throwing firepots around or just attack on sight. I just saw a group of people, all clothed in red, join a duel server and attack on sight and the server was emptied out in a few minutes as no admin was there.

But what shocks me the most is the overall behavior of people and their responses in justifying toxic behavior that can bring down a game's community. Who the hell would defend racism even if they are just trolling? Well, A LOT it seems. If there is no real chance in this, i'm not gonna play this game for long.

HAHAHAHAHA that screenshot is hilarious.

"muh racism" fuck off sjw.

Kick buff is fine. Encourages smarter play. What I don't like is being hit in the side by a guy infront of me. Previously dragging a stab around blocks made sense and worked great. But now I'm being hit by shit I shouldn't be, like an undragged standard horizontal swing. Dunno if its a ping issue but there has been some retarded hits I have sent/received since the change.

Not fine by a mile, kick range is broken.

Oh no, you are forced to read and not play completely defensively! The horror!

Gonna say it again: Maybe don't hold it up all the time like a retard.

Retard is someone like YOU that don't understand that kick range is broken and that what i am suggesting in this thread will make a better solution to prevent shield users to hold their shields permanently up.

Not by miles on the right track, kick is now broken, completely OP the shield stamina exclusive bar is a better idea.

@Botas, the way you conduct yourself on these forums is atrocious and you already have quite the reputation. You have basically thrown away any chance you had of people listening to you or taking you seriously.

If I were you, I’d focus your energy on learning to play the game and re-integrate with the community, instead of being a toxic little shit.

I don't care about "reputation" or what fanboys or hypocrite cunts that obviously just want to keep this game imbalancedthink about me, if this forum had a block option i would have already blocked all of you.

Imagine how hopelessly bad you must've been if such a microscopic, irrelevant change gives you a big problem.

Yeah... it is irrelevant that now shields behave like a 2 handed parry, it is "irrelevant" that they are now made entirely pointless just by 1 change, you people are complete retard or you are just pretending you dont understand´because yo main 2 handed weapons, i don't even know if your stupidity is honest or not.

look dude as a shield user myself I haven't seen much of a change other than a new challenge to counter that's the fun of this game to learn new ways to win

Stop lying, you are NOT a shield user cunt, you said you 2 hand a weapon, you don't play a shield character.

It's almost like you can have multiple characters at once

It is almost like he said himself that he uses a shield to cover his back and uses a 2 handed weapon.

yo holy shit
are shield users really creating a narrative where the developers are evil beigns and they, poor souls, have been shunned by the creators and are fighting injustice.
yo its a game
C H I L L
dont get me wrong, love me some shield+falchion+dodge in frontline.

but you see, before the kick buff against shields there were two problems 1) shields could literally backpedal into oblivion making fights HELLA boring, and 2) in frontline when fighting against multiple opponents there is no way to get a hit on a shield that DOESNT want to be hit, and committing to a kick that DIDNT even hit usually meant a free hit on YOU, if not a quick death. so basically dealing with shields was a true pain.

now, what does the shield bring to the table?
many things really
now lets set apart the much bigger area of parry, and the reduced stamina drain than with using only the 1 handed weapon (or the passive projectile protection in frontline too) and let me put it this way:

shields let you ignore a big part of the morphs and faints aspect of mindgames
i dont think you understand this enough, but BEFORE you could LITERALLY hold shield and backpedal and ignore feints, morphs AND kicks.
BUT NOW out of morphs, faints and kicks you CANT ignore the last one, so youre forced into ONE THIRD of the mind game aspects, which is the easiest btw, being that kick has no direction and has a unique and easy animation to read.

and that is a HUGE change to the pace of combat.

now tho, lets not forget that in this game many variables come into play, and taking an aspect of the game, abstracting it and talking about it like its not a part of the combat but THE whole combat in itself isnt gonna get you anywere, and this is where i say that all the people that say git gud are right.
the entitled way i see you whining make me think you havent even TRIED to counter your situations.

you know what i do now that everyone reaches for kicks? i dont backpedal, i go AT them with the shield raised and bait kicks, even if i dont end up punishing them, theyll think twice about doing it next time(which btw, is something i learned by fighting dUELS againts someone with shield and s.spear which tricked me in a ton of different ways).
its very much a mental game as much as a technical one, offense is defence and getting into the enemy's mind is very important.
i bet you could find many other things to do to play around kicks but the bottom line is, instead of doing so

youre here, whining in a very entitled tone

We are not creating any narrative cunt, the facts are there, the proof is there, this game is biased towards 2 handed swords you are a stupid fanboy that refuses to see that, period.

I carry a shield for counter of Archers when I see a 2 hander (who isent using a spear) ill go 2 handed Bastard Sword

Yeah stop lying, you can parry arrows just fine with a 2 handed weapon and it is not like archery is completely nerfed in favor of melee in this game, please just stop.

its true despite what you think atleast I don't use a rapier and a shield

It is true what?, that you are so bad that you need to still carry a shield with you to survive gimped archers?

im bad sure but the shield helps with my constant 300+ ping loooof.jpg

Why do you play with 300+ ping? and with that into consideration why anything you said is valid at this point? you are clearly not playing the game in a way that eveybody else play because of your limitations, whatever thing you say is really not valid anymore you can not be playing 300+ ping and then think i should consider anything you said as a valid argument...

I hope your ping gets better though it is really bad that you have to play that way and not enjoy the game correctly.

yeah worst part is that's with steam set to 250 ping max and east coast servers I wait for 10 mins to que and still over 3oo ping lol 20190516133213_1.jpg

I just hope you get to play in a better way soon man, i feel real sorry for you, at least you are enjoying the game the way you can so good for you on that, i hope the servers and everything gets better, there should not be people having pings like yours.

I really don't care about the shields nerf. It wasn't rocket science to counter them (hugging, kicking, outspacing etc.) but now it seems the nerf was targeting the ones who would turtle. It only helps new player / players who have more trouble with the game. Shield still are a really good aid against archers and to avoid completely the concentration needed to read someone with their feints and morph. It's bascically a support item for people having trouble with 2 handers or wtv that feints a lot (though extreme feinters are easily punishable with their lack of stamina management and people need to learn that)

In short, if you can't counter a shield (whom 90% of users are brain dead) You really, unironically need to get good at the game.

The irony is the people that tell the shield users to git gud now are the ones that could not get good even though beating shield users wasn't even that difficult as some good players already pointed out, they were so bad that the developers had to come and nerf the shit out of shield so they can now think "they are good" because kicking now is an "i win button" vs any shield user.

You nerfed shields today even when good players told you that the only thing that needed a buff was the kick,...

Isn't that exactly what they did though? Buffed kicks' range against shields and fixed shield's hitboxes being bigger than the actual size of the shield. They're still a decent choice, just more balanced.

As for archery I believe the longbow damage is absolutely fine (recurve is another story), only problem with it is the stupid Call of Duty HP regeneration that allows players to hide for a few seconds and completely recover from a shot. Totally agree on slow projectile speed, no stun on hit and parrying arrows being bad decisions though, but I wouldn't expect that to change. They might increase the stupid speed but nothing beyond that. Weapons cost is well balanced too, if they decrease longbow cost by a single point that would enable archers to equip a tier 3 chest armor with Huntsman and meele weapon, no longer dying in one shot (unless headshot) but still killing you in one unless you use exactly the same build. That'd be boring.

They did but ONLY AFFECTS SHIELD USERS? not only that but now made shields pointless, you have to play with them like you were using a 2 handed weapon so what is the point of using a shield now?
