In Chivalry, if they didnt have something gay like norse/sow or claymore, a super sonic speed attack was usually only coming if they turned your back to you or looked down and crouched. Here it's already hit you if they look down and crouch. I thought I would come into Mordhau and be rid of the guessing game between drags and reverses but it's actually much harder here. You have less time to decide and a much shorter parry fighting much faster weapons.

That's why spamming Q and molesting your mouse works great against the players who don't have a few hundred in yet. Parry is too strict in regards to timing and not enough to location/direction. What's the far more intuitive way parry should be set up? Delay Drags should merely be a skill check and marginally effective against players who've played melee games before. But using delay drags is literally the centerpiece of the game. The other half being hard accels against someone who will read an drag or feint. Someone chambering you? Throw microdrags then feint when they switch to parry. Your opponent will know it's an accel...but too late to input in time and be sure it's not a feint or drag. Making feint window shorter is only a bandaid to the real issue though. That everything comes down to pressing the right button or looking a certain direction at the right ms. The casuals will join this game and rape it just like they did Chiv for literally the same reasons. Fewer will stay though cause it's not as fun looking and cartoonish as Chiv.

Too much of this is pressing the right button at the right microsecond instead of fighting and out maneuvering your opponent. It looks so ugly and makes no sense. At least someone setting up for a reverse had a certain look to them. This game is hard for all the wrong reasons.

I want the devs to completely rethink the way they have parry set up. Chambers should remain as hard as they are in terms of timing but parry should be much more like shield. With animations for different parry angles and much more strictness for direction of attacks... a longer parry would be nice but maybe that's too much to ask for. Fighting will then be about using your swing manipulations in a much more meaningful, intuitive way. Parry will be just as hard or perhaps harder and the thousand hour try-hards will still be just as impenetrable... but now it will at least make sense and won't drive away players actually interested in the genre. We should be learning from Chivalry's mistakes, not repeating them in a way that looks slightly better.

Good post, definitely agree on the ugliness. And indeed, so far we haven't been getting much of the self-expression capability we were promised, or heavily implied towards. The meta is exactly as you described: No room for actual creativity in combat.
