Frontline seems like a good and fun introduction to the game in my opinion. It's got everything, people who suck, people who are great, and lots of fun. If someone wants to pursue more skill in Mordhau they will simply ask themselves "hmm how can I get more skilled, maybe I can try [insert server type here]" and the rest is history. It's good to have a playground that isn't super serious for people to play on and be introduced. It's better than being absolutely stomped when you first play the game, that's what chiv was like, you got past level 15, tried a non level restricted server, and got absolutely destroyed by maul ballerinas. It's good to lose as it's the only way to improve, (as long as you continue to put the effort in) but to just be absolutely destroyed with some of your first experiences with a game, WILL kill the game because nobody new will want to play it. So you gotta gently introduce people to skill, and they have to want to get better for it to actually be effective. If someone wants to get better, they will, it's kind of our speciality as human beings.
Okay so here's why rapiers suck in my opinion. (Note: I don't hate on people in chat about using a rapier, and I try to avoid being a toxic fuck) Is that if you look at the stats, the bastard sword is just better in every way, you can slash with it, and it even has 1cm extra of range. Yeah I get the rapier is "cool" but it's not and it kinda sucks. For the most part people hate because you look like a noob who just wants to look cool and doesn't really care about how effective your strategy is. (Note: this is how it looks, it may not be the case) Dodge, is a useless perk and will get you killed more often than not if you rely on it. It would seem you have some contempt for Knights (actual armor and a decent weapon) but if you took the time to practice with a longsword for example then you'll find that it is a very very solid weapon. The longsword doesn't rely on cheese mechanics that'll help you win regardless of your skill level, you need to get good with it. (Note: I know you are also referring to zweis and exec swords, those can be frustrating). All of this being said, if you do want to go down the silly route, the frying pan is a very op weapon and also very silly so I highly recommend it, plus it can be thrown.
