Only thing that can get annoying is full plate bois wearing long skirts to disguise the fact they have naked legs.

I sort of like mixing shoulder pieces and such on my lightly armored guys to make them more aesthetic. I think the upper body is very easy to tell in the game overall.

Hoods over helmets is also annoying, especialy since this game likes to reward headshots more than in Chiv. But this is mainly an aesthetic complaint, Huggles. I'd only restrict the big pauldrons, spaulders are fair game.

Imho, it's fine if not every helmet is perfectly designed for peak performance. It's also historically accurate the fact that not everyone in an army could afford the peak exemplar of a helmet model.
I'm fascinated by the odd designs that maybe the poor people that went to war had to improvise, sadly, there aren't a lot of finds and accounts of peasant armor.
Ian Lespina has this awesome video sbout the topic:

I suggested it before and i will suggest it again, maybe devs could introduce ugly peasant armor.

You misunderstand. I wasn't talking about the quality of the helmet design from a historical standpoint, I was talking about how two of the examples Bodkin posted are mass-manufactured for LARP/costume use and are bad examples because they lack the signs of something made by hand.

These are decent examples. The jack chains you posted were popular because they were extremely affordable, and mitten gauntlets would be worth investing your money into if you wielded a polearm because there was no guard to protect your hands should a weapon slide down the shaft; however, it was more likely that you could afford a coat of plates to protect your torso before you could get a full, articulated steel harness for your arms and legs.

The only historical picture you posted, Jean Froissart's Battle of Crecy, you don't see anybody with full plate arms without adequate torso protection. You can also see that many of the archers that are wearing lots of armor wear nothing but tights or polyns for their knees.

My statement about the customization was extremely vague, and I guess making a more helpful statement would require drawing the line at specific armor pieces. But I guess it's not enough of a pressing issue for the devs or anyone to care about. I'm just sick of players fudging their loadouts like this to give a disproportionate amount of splendor to their lightly armored characters, it's just shitty for the overall theme and asthetic continuity.

Try to steer away from cheap reproduction helmets, the first and last helmet examples are not good examples of the type. It's crap like that which got us the "templar helms" and the "coat of plates."

There needs to be certain restrictions on cosmetic armor pieces so that a lightly armored person will actually look the part.

Yes please. It's very disappointing having zero team customization.

Nothing like a good ol' nostalgia trip to the pre-kickstarter Mordhau forums.
