There's a reason shield users get kicked to death all the time. In a chaotic battle a shield is a huge pain in the ass to unlock defensively, to the point of being not even worth it to even try half the time. So we called the 2 hand council and the matter was decided.

All the chad 2 handers have an unspoken agreement amongst us that we will back any shield user into a corner and gang kick until it's all over.

We do this because it's humiliating and we are trying to forge strong chad iron from virgin shield ore. It's also fitting that a braindead bypass of all the finer offensive mechanics (the shield) has an equally easy and braindead counter (mash kick).

I do this with double binds like lobster said ^

You'll always be running so you have to crouch for stam or health regen but its works fine

These people suck balls and do indeed ruin the game for many

Your play style reminds me of Senpai Trix with how clean and minimal it is.

Accuse enough people of being based and redpilled and eventually you'll get The One

In cronch we trust

Why does this thread even exist? How do you people formulate these weird opinions? The Mace is a powerful and flexible 1 hander. Wacky looking feints and morphs, fast and strong stab, 2-hits heavy armour. If you can't perform with it...

Indeed, the Rapier is working as intended. It can take the most meagre amount of skill and amplify it into a useable front line weapon because the flurry of stabs wins constant initiative if they land so you can just spam the same attack and focus on footwork. The good news is this type of player can be dealt with quite easily with practice. The spear is a 10 point weapon so it makes sense that its strong. It was traditionally easy to use so it makes sense that its... easy to use. The alt grip is a bit nutty though.

Basically Frontline has so much chaos you can run around dong sub-optimal shit like spamming Rapier/Spear stabs and do quite well. You will get dismantled in a duel when your opponent has enough time to focus on you so try to pick up some other weapons and forget about the scoreboard while you learn. Topping FL is like winning the Special Olympics, you're just beating on mongos, so better to focus on learning how to use any given weapon which is more fun and effective long term.

I think especially if you fullspeed into toolbox walls you should fall off and take at least some damage. (maybe 25?)
If you hit a wall / tree while flying you take 50 and Spikes should kill you.

This + if your horse falls from a certain height, for example the crossroads tree house, your balls explode on impact and you experience an extended bleed out for 10 seconds during which your voice pitch keeps getting higher.

MORE IMPORTANTLY, what map is that?

It's a community made map. Beserker I believe it's called. There's a thread on it here.

Title.
If you play Spear, Short spear+shield or Rapier, you have no soul.

The truth hurts but it's out there.

Maul & Mace for cronching
Zweihander, Longsword & Billhook for general purpose
Executioner Sword for the huge slashing excels
Longbow as the only reliable way to kill a feather plumed twat on a horse without getting skewered

I feel the same about the Messer. Fillet skin is the worst. As for kicks, if you hold a block with a shield and someone kicks within a 5m radius you may indeed wear the kick. I'm not mad about it, comes in handy vs Kite shielders. Use a Targe Shield for a defensive boost without developing shitty habits like block holding if you aren't already, or better yet swap the BS for a Messer. Same points and range with far superior HTK and general animation fuckiness allows you to land more blows. The guilt you feel when using that broken weapon is honestly the biggest/only negative.

Next game was a spawn trapping troll at Grad who initiated multiple succesful vote kicks against people trying to stop him. Enough Mord for today. Le sigh.

I'm in a Crossroads lobby rn browsing the internet until the tickets are gone and we can get a better map :(

If Tim Sweeney had just gone to med school like his parents wanted instead of being a bitch ass nerd we never would have had to deal with horses. Makes you think

The cav mains are small as a voting bloc but they show up at the booths I guess

I don't like FP games in general so I play third person. 3rd person has better FOV but its tougher to aim stabs which is a trade off I can live with for my preferred over the shoulder camera.
