If you equip a shield it should prevent you from being able to feint or morph. Also the windup of attacks should become longer.

Still sounds kinda gimp. Maybe increase the speed and damage also and it will be perfect.

When easy mode just isn't easy enough.

To say that this is just a game about "swinging swords" and has nothing to do with identity politics and the current outrage culture in today's society is extremely reductive if you ask me.

There's also stabs.

Loving it, 184 hours in and I'm still just learning how to play.

Whenever I see someone use Dodge I just back pedal and pull out my bandage. Usually they will come running back quickly.

The turd counter all of these.

Shields - throw a turd in their back.
Javs - throw the turd and hit the jav out of the air.
Horses - wait for it to ride past and pick up the turd and throw it at the rider.
Crossroads - be a turd and complain on the forums.

You're welcome!

It's like saying tanks are OP in modern combat games.Yeah that's their role on the battlefield. Try capping a point from horseback.

And how would devs STOP people from being able to edit an ini file anyway? Again, no matter how hard you try to spin it, it's cheating. And I have to wonder if you do and that's why you're trying so hard to defend it.

I'm not trying to "spin" anything or defend anyone here.
I'm making an argument that it's backward to include config files, which are generally allowed to edit in all multiplayer games, but then expect the players to only change what they consider fair.

I'm not a game developer but I'm pretty sure they can fix this exploit which Rick found. I hope so at least because I think it's safe to say that Rick was not the only person abusing it (even less so now that it's made public).

Would I use something like this if I found it? No, not when it's this obviously an unfair advantage.
But have I changed config files to improve my game, yes sure, in ArmA I changed a lot of settings to make the game run faster and incidentally gave me an advantage at long range as the rendering of terrain changed in such a way that I would be able to see players easier. Many people did it and it was recommended on all the forums, youtube guides and reddits. So yeah. Again leads back to my point.

I don't think that it is ultimately the players who should be in charge of deciding whether or not it's allowed. If it's not allowed then the devs should patch it out.

In this case it may seem like an easy call for someone with a bit of common sense. But it sets a precedence, will the players be assumed to only change values in the config files if they think it's fair? Where does the line go? Can changing FoV be unfair - will it get you banned? "Potato mode", will it give you any form of advantage, who knows?

If you on the other hand download software to intentionally cheat in the game, I think it's different. It's external to the game and specifically made to cheat. There's no excuse and they should be banned.

This right here, is a load of crap. If someone uses their .ini files to gain ANY advantage over someone who does not, it is cheating. I don't give af how you try to spin it, it's gaining advantages over an honest player.

This is especially true with FOV. If you use the .ini to change fov beyond what the IN GAME OPTIONS allow, you're cheating. Period. I cite the following video as reason why: high FOV

If you don't call that crap cheating, newsflash: you're part of the problem and deserve to be banned.

You're both missing and confirming my point.
I have seen threads on this forum where people are proudly presenting screenshots of their increased FoV (not possible in the game client but possible to change in the config files). I don't think they regarded it as cheating or they wouldn't have presented the evidence for everyone to see.

All that means is they share the same flawed thinking.

Point being is that it shouldn't be up to the individual player's ethical judgement or guesstimation. If the devs don't think it should be allowed they should remove the possibility to change those values.

In Delta Force: Black Hawk Down, if you put your in-game gfx settings to low you were able to see and shoot under buildings and objects which other players could not see through.
Would you say the devs should ban anyone running the game on low, or should they simply fix the issue?

Please put a trigger warning in the topic title next time. :(

The Chiv 2 devs have listened to your critique and have decided to only include two moves in the game: block and attack. Camera movement will also be disabled while performing either a block or the attack.

It will be an incredible game of mental and physical fortitude. An average duel is expected to last for around 3-5 hours.

Complete side note but thanks for the link. I've been reading through the book at work and it's very easy to apply to Mordhau.

Also very relevant for the topic at hand.

In frontline they are very good for holding points until reinforcements can get there. That's all I can think of.

Very fun map. Reminds me of cRPG for some reason.

Spawns seem a bit red favored but I've won as both teams multiple times now.

Taiga has the most interesting map design, aside from the wonky spawn placements. Grad is also very nice.
Unfortunately all maps suffer from the ticket bleed snowball effect caused by the game mode.
