I like the combat mechanics and art.

I dislike almost everything else. Mostly sound and map design.

Also the server downgrade that happened after the first couple weeks.

I just found it funny that a mod is bumping a self-promotion thread.

The clip itself was fun to watch, but I think music was too loud compared to game's voice

Sure you can play with that ping, I play with 80 most of the time. But ping is very problematic in this game, not only it gets a lot harder to fight weapons like BS but also you have to lead your opponent if you want to hit them.

Honestly unless they make LAN events this game will never be really competetive, did you see the NA finals?

Sadly don't count on it. Even in Europe all the official servers are located in northern France, NL and GB while having low quality. So anyone east of Austria gets higher than 70 ping.

Hope they acknowledge and fix the problem, though.

The game isn't dying. Its the fact that people that buy the game get turned off quickly because of its difficulty and high skillcap. People nowadays want instant gratification.

I never understood this high skill cap concept in declining playerbase. Most popular multiplayer games right now have very high skill caps, more so than Mordhau.

Average Frontline server is way easier than an average competitive game's quickmatch. Average competetive game's ranked mode is also a lot more difficult than the best duel servers right now.

Did you watch the video slow motion?

I did and there is a problem there, most likely server related though.

Well but Moorish equipment is not in the game yet.

Nobody would feel darker skin tones were out of place if it was added with Moorish equipment and also some Arabian and Castillian stuff that would have a theme.

Upcoming maps have Spanish/Portugese names so it would actually be nice if they added all together in the future.

Mount&blade had female characters and the world didn't end.

Mount and Blade had females and 95% of the time they were used as naked with names like Daenerys.

I am not against it but do not act like it will have a positive impact in the game.

Yeah dude complain about THAT in the same game where u can cosplay as shrek and run around naked with a pan.

Jesus fucking christ

I do not like that too.

If you do not see the correlation between Steam users and potential buyers it is just pointless to discuss.

Anyway right now Warband has more players playing than Mordhau. I do not think it is doing worse than Mordhau if you consider that it is a 10 year old game with outdated graphics.

I've already made a post elsewhere giving statistical comparisons which demonstrate that mordhau is doing far better than it's predecessors chivalry, mirage, and warband.

Warband has less players yes, but over the years its playerbase has only increased.

Also Steam itself is a lot bigger right now compared to the time when chiv and warband were released

Not sure what you had in mine as a 'deeper interesting team game mode'

I mean a team game mode that would include decision making in a deeper level.

It could be multiple objectives to be defended that would require careful splitting, it could be side objectives with weapon rewards. It can be something like buying weapons like CS every round.

Whilst there are no proper modes yet, the competitive scene does 2v2 - 5v5 skirmishes and 6v6 or 8v8 frontline games. Largely organised on a couple of discord servers and clan servers. Highly recommend getting involved if that potentially interests you rather than sticking to what is ingame and you fancy something new. Also, you certainly won't find comp play laughably easy ;)

Thanks for the suggestion, but I think it is hard to find a clan without "ranks" and very strict schedules. That is why me and I think many other people are not interested in them very much. That is why I suggested it as an official mode.

I disagree, Mordhau is not hard as you think it is. Compared to other games I play, I find the pub games (where majority of the players are) laughably easy.

What the game lacks is just incentive to improve and keep playing. A deeper interesting team game mode with small size like 6v6 would go long way to make the game better, I believe.

I want to keep playing because the core mechanics are really fun, but they are all there is.

This is an online competitive game.

You think going for the favored team in pub games make you competitive?

That is just sad.

I don’t know man I’d have to disagree with you on a couple things.

Taiga - I’d say this map is pretty fuckin close to even after the change. If it is favored for blue it’s nothing too major that a halfway decent red team can’t over come.

Mountain peak - for the love of god ALWAYS pick blue unless youre some kind of sick masochist. No argument there.

Camp - again, pretty damn balanced map other than the fuckin trebs that spontaneously explode you. No arguments there.

Grad - The map feels very balanced but from my personal experience I tend to go blue on this map. Most of my matches on grad have been blue wins.

And now we’ve come to everyone’s FAVORITE map. CROSSROADS This heaping pile of human dung should have never seen the light of day and instead stayed within the warm confines of the asshole who subsequently diarrhead this all over the the poor and unsuspecting player base.

“Hey, you know what people like? Choke points! And fire bombs! Choke points AND firebombs!” “You know what else people like? Horses! I think the more horses we add, the more people will love us! This is going to be great!”

But yes... crossroads is heavily red favored...

What kind of mentality is always going for the favored team?

Also Mountatin peak is blue favored because of the spawn points in the third objective for the blue.

Yeah, the Frankfurt servers I checked were located in France. Still servers have high ping and packet loss even for its true location.

I don't play frontline, but I still recognise that they have made improvements to that gamemode. It's not all about you.

This is the problem you don't play it so you don't know how bad it is. Frontline has not been improved, and 64p servers, javelins and Crossroads have only made it worse. Right now unless you want to duel and scrim this game has not much to offer. Note that these two are not even proper game modes in the game.

The three main modes when you open the game:

Frontline:
It is just a high ping low fps firebomb, shield javelin fest with no meaningful objectives or player contributions. Also includes the thing called Crossroads as map.

Battle Royale:
People team freely. Spawn and chest placements make it an RNG fest even more than other Battle Royales

Horde:
The game basicly forces you to camp towers with bows or make one mistake and watch other people camping towers for ten minutes.

I don't understand all this talk about shields not being useful. It blocking ranged attacks should be more than enough reason for it to be useful. But not only it does that, it gives you an option to ignore 90% percent of the game mechanics while defending and using them while attacking. It somehow even gives you a riposte.
In frontline, 4-6 friends joining a game with shields shuts down all the enjoyment of the game for me and it happens more and more often lately.
