I play strictly duels so my opinion is only based on the duelist populous.

That being said I have over 600 hours and the only things I dislike in this game are held block shields and being 1 shot occasionally by a maul.

Otherwise I’ve always dealt w good servers. My ping, depending on the server is always somewhere between 30-80. But whatever part of that spectrum it is it remains steady. And despite what ppl say I don’t notice any difference in my experience unless my ping is 100+ but I don’t join servers that far away.

Yes, I see the high packet loss msg from time to time but it’s never seemed to effect my gameplay despite flashing on the screen.

As far as mechanics go I don’t have a problem reading feints/morphs/drags/accels and think they are a necessary part of combat. Sure it was frustrating dying over and over in the beginning to more experience players and chiv vets but I chose not to blame the intended mechanics and cry out “animation abuse.” Instead I chose to keep fighting those better players over and over again until I understood more and could read the animations almost by second nature. Without these combat mechanics it would just be an arcade pong back and forth of whoever hits first wins the stm war. yawn

Sure I’d like some new skins/maps/game modes to be added eventually. And modding would keep this game alive for years from now. But as it stands I still love this game.

We all hate getting 1shot. I never use maul personally unless I’m throwing someone else’s at someone.

That being said I think it’s niche for 1 shot headshots is somewhat alright. Otherwise it would just be a shittier, shorter estar. But then again it’s 3 points cheaper so I dunno 🤷🏻‍♂️

Most of the threads I’ve seen closed either detailed from the topic. Or were troll threads about getting votekicked for being racist or some other edgelord trash.

If you enjoy playing like a bot, you're probably gonna have a bad time.

How about trying to play like a player instead of a NPC.

This was surprisingly perfect. Short and sweet. +1

Fair do's. I tried to use the playerlist, votekick "number" but it didn't work last night.

2 people with weird symbols for names who never used chat were team killing constantly, was not able to get them kicked.

Weird. I’ve never had that happen. And I’ve voted to kick at least 2 autoparry/no parry cooldown hackers. I don’t think they got kicked cause of the votes but they did call. 2 of them were in the same duel server and they both said nothing and left after a couple other ppl said the same thing. But who knows 🤷🏻‍♂️ Maybe there is a program out there that makes you immune to vote calls.

Dude you're like the Anton Ego from Ratatouille of the forums my guy.

what ancient power have you unlocked in your psyche that you can make Ratatouille references

I truly have no idea what this means or how i'm supposed to respond to it

Hold up.... Ratatouille is ancient? Well damn...

that is not what I said

Don’t make me think past what I presume...

You don’t have to click on anything.

Hit console twice

Then type—-

Playerlist

Votekick #

—-Profit.

The only time it doesn’t work is if there is still a vote in process or you have already called one in the last few minutes.

Edit to clarify that just because you aren’t seeing a vote anymore doesn’t mean there isn’t still one being voted on. You might have already paged up/down on one with or without knowing and said vote is still in process or waiting to time out cause someone else in the room hasn’t voted.

the problem is that you are bad at the game

This.

To be fair everyone thinks everything is some crazy shit until they take the time to learn it themselves. Then you expect those variables in combat against better players and learn to read the animations. TBH imo if you are still listening for grunts to gauge when to parry you’ve been duped. Without drags/accels/feints/morphs duels would be a child’s arcade game and just end up being whoever hits first wins the stm war after 45 seconds GG. yawn

The more you duel that one guy that beats you every time and who’s animations seem impossible to read. The more you will begin to see those animations almost as a second nature. If you lose to someone 10-20 times in a row and just ragequit the room and call it every time, you’ll never better yourself. Instead, you’ll end up here making threads telling devs to change their game mechanics in vain.

The skill ceiling for this game in 1v1 is lower than Chiv, and the skill floor is relatively low compared to other niche games. There's no execution barriers like the elaborate drags in Chiv. Teamgames and 1vX currently has a higher skill cap, but the latter is currently broken meaning it's impossible for a good player to win a 1vX vs other good players barring the X making huge mistakes. Compare learning Mordhau to Quake or Tekken 7, there's literally no comparison. Just learning your movelist in Tekken is harder than anything in Mordhau, and that's not even including shit like learning the various ways to get up off the floor and understanding how that influences matchups. Also for a game that prides itself on you having control over your attacks, it's actually crazy how much control you DON'T have compared to Chiv.

People aren't leaving this game because it's inaccessible, people are leaving because it gets repetitive and Frontline is full of cancerous mechanics like fire bombs/horses/body shot Javs. Not to mention the maps are dogshit.

Agreed, like frontline is THE gamemode that shows up on match making and what new players are going to do first usually.

The games combat is really good but theres alot of broken weapon mechanics that just straight up get abused in frontline. Like ive never touched the bardiche literally ever, or any polearm because they're all fucking amazing, so amazing i was able to get 45-4 just from swings and drags. Its literal bullshit,

Not to mention garbage like Messer, Waraxe/Battle Axe, Maul and Halberd are all like THE frontline meta, spears cool but not really much more than stabbing you can do :/

Yeah, I dunno about you. But being a pc gamer. I’ve never used a matchmaking function in ANY pc multiplayer game when there is a server list available.

I mean yeah me too, like ive played my fair share of source games which 80% never have match making.

But it sucks that duels are like almost completely hidden from the normal player.

wait have you played frontline?

Lol nope 😅 This game is basically my wotr resurrection. As duels were all the like 2-300 left of the community played for the last two years or whatever it was. Never got old for me personally. God I miss backswings past ppls blocks. Now that was some REAL animation abuse 💯

I've noticed it's only w certain color matchups. I can't remember what colors/metal tints I had but it wasn't appearing in game. Changed back to what I had before because that's all that I could remember changing and it was in game again. A bug that should be fixed. But hopefully this was helpful to someone reading this outside the “bugs and glitches” forum section.

TL:DR - skill cap is high and pushes impatient/mediocre players away.

-> 40 people trying to blindly hack at both enemies and teammates as many times as possible before an incoming catapult shot kills half of them, in a 10x10ft area while being on fire and getting trampled by a horse

-> Skill cap

Skill cap as far as melee combat goes. As I said this is my personal opinion... And I’ve only played duels since day 1. So I don’t deal w those problems 😂

I’m not saying this game couldn’t use mod tools and a handful of new maps/modes to keep it fresh in the coming year, but as it stands the game is polished and the mechanics are some of the most intricate and skill based of the genre I’ve ever seen after wotr, (again, my opinion.)

The core mechanics are fine and there is little to complain about, but you have to be horribly blind and/or ignorant to call this game "polished".

In my opinion, overall and with all it brings to the table for this niche genre it’s about as polished as anything I’ve seen, (again within the genre.). That doesn’t mean there aren’t problems. Nothing is perfect 🤷🏻‍♂️ But polished is also a relative term. It would have to depends on what aspects of the game we are really looking at which is why “overall”. I would say it’s fairly “polished.”✌🏽 You can call me blind if you want. Thankfully, not blind enough to be unable to read all these “broken mechanics” ppl are “abusing.”

IMHO:

The population has settled and the skill level has somewhat evened across the remaining players. The players who don’t have the patience to learn and/or the skill/hand eye coordination to overcome and adapt to play styles and mechanics quit.

It’s been that way with most good games of this genre, (m&b/wotr/chiv come to mind.). The group of players remaining dominate any new players and discourage them from taking the time to learn how to play effectively. So they just chalk it up to the games broken instead of themselves. It’s sad but true.

Game runs smooth. The duel servers I play don’t have issues and me and my friends pings remain relatively steady w the odd “packet loss” in yellow every once in a while which honestly never seems to effect my experience whatsoever despite the message. We don’t have problems w the mechanics and seem nothing broken aside from our personal distastes, (held Block shields because I only play duels and 1 hit maul because let’s face it no ones like being 1 hit ko’d).

But we still love the game and will continue to support it until otherwise.

TL:DR - skill cap is high and pushes impatient/mediocre players away. Maybe add a mode that’s only available to players of lower ranks, I dunno 🤷🏻‍♂️

Thing I dislike: How quickly this game became stale. I loved it in the beginning.

Thing I like: Bannerlord is getting closer to release every day.

I wouldn’t hold my breath. If bannerlord was released 2 years ago it might have done alright. Anytime in the foreseeable future. It already looks dated. Too long in development. Might just get dropped and never release at this point 🤷🏻‍♂️

Maybe for the first duel or two w someone.

I personally don’t have problems consistently reading any particular attacks.

Some players have good combo mix ups that might get you the first couple times around. But everyone has tells and patterns. Just takes a little patience.

I would love to duel you with poleaxe alt-mode and see you "consistently read" my drags or jpegs. I won't hold my breath however.
Not that that's the only thing. If your ping is over 70, approximately a third of your parries will be red parries against a skilled opponent.

Game is busted at a competitive level.

Add me. Try your luck.
