OP, not every game needs lore behind it. You don’t need some role play motivation to enjoy a game like this. It wouldn’t matter the answer for any of those questions you raised and none would affect the gameplay if different answers given. The questions you posted are not important players are thoroughly enjoying the game without any lore whatsoever.

It literally is about killing the enemy, and that’s it. Sure, some games had some story, but it isn’t necessary in every case.

I also wonder why you ‘expected’ lore to be in the game? I saw no mention of it in any promotional material anywhere.

Story does not affect gameplay, but it has a monumental impact on one's enjoyment of a game. It contributes to the immersion and atmosphere of a game, which do enhance your experience, even if you are not aware of it due to it occurring in the background. It is also what leaves a lasting impression in your mind, ensuring that ten years later you will recall the game fondly - because it is not the gameplay, but the 'texture' of a game that sticks with us, namely the atmosphere it creates. Basic questions such as the ones @Lincs asked having answers is what separates a game that feels like an actual, complex world from a game that feels like a silly sandbox to mess around in for a week and move on.

Homicide has never been so therapeutic.

Fantastic work. I have added it to the Discord bot so anyone can link your video when someone asks how to record and play a demo.

its a fucking stick anything beyond meme tier is silly

A stick capable of fracturing skulls through plate helmets, one of the most dangerous sparring weapons even with protection.

Yet the carrot is a more powerful weapon. How about we make it more dignified than it is in its current state? Chivalry represented the quarterstaff much better.

Funny. I noticed a similarity to another report I received recently because of the language used in the screenshot. I checked his recent aliases, and sure enough, it is the same person.

Hello. Thank you for reporting him. In the future, you should contact a moderator directly so there is no chance we miss it, and you should also take a screenshot of the scoreboard to prove it is indeed an official server. As for hacking or griefing, a minute of footage is enough to get him banned.

Official rules are enforced only on official servers. The rules of private servers are up to their owners. I am not sure why you would play on his server to begin with if he is mistreating you.

There are still no rules, as far as I know, set in stone against this type of behaviour, so whether they get banned is up to the moderator's judgement. Right now bans are being handed out quite slowly for a few reasons, so for the time being you are going to run into people who have been written down for a future ban. It is still worth reporting players, but mostly cheaters and griefers.

Thank you for making the community a better place.

Triternion does not give any ETAs other than Soon™. I imagine it depends more on the server providers than the developers.

It turns out those LA servers are not in Los Angeles at all. They are named incorrectly, which is why your ping is much higher than you would expect. The developers are now aware of this.

Knight 380 1507

The developers are a little busy to personally go around searching for such people, but if you happen to come across any of them, send a PM to any moderator here or on the Discord with a link to the player's profile, and screenshots or footage of their misconduct.

A long time ago the maximum value for the FOV you could set in the options was 130. Since then the option has been changed to use vertical FOV instead of horizontal. The new limit, 101, corresponds to the old limit of 130 horizontal FOV.

I am not sure if editing the .ini would allow you to go past the 101 limit, but if so, it would be considered cheating and against the rules.

Knight 380 1507

In the hypothetical scenario of someone performing a stab while facehugging you, you have made a mistake by allowing him to get so close to you in the first place. Keeping your distance is vital not only because you have more time to react to attacks, but also because you have more vision of the animation.

If someone does get that close to you and starts a stab, you should not focus on hard reading the attack but instead punish him for facehugging with a kick. You may also go for a chamber since it is more reliable than reading at such close range. And his attack is only that fast if you are standing still rather than backpedalling like you should be, to increase the duration of his attack. You can even turn and sprint away instead of backpedalling.

Knight 380 1507

The gold and experience you receive at the end of a match mostly depend on the duration of the match. Points or K:D ratio are a very miniscule factor. Do not worry about them and play the game in the manner you like.

I was under the impression that the 1st person animations are the same as what you see externally.

That is not the case. I think you can still see this by equipping a quarterstaff and observing how your grip is very different in first person than it is in third.

Knight 380 1507

Both spawn building and votekick dodging is fixed in the latest patch, which should be out in a few days.

EDIT: You can report players by submiting the evidence to a moderator here or on the Discord. Since you already have evidence, send me a PM.

Knight 380 1507

What exactly are these exploits? Do you mean dragging in general? Do you mean feints? Both are intended mechanics and are in a really good state right now.

Is there a trick to the warhammer I'm missing? I didn't click the OP but it seems like a pile of garbage from my short time with it. The Mace seems like a beautiful hybrid between the morningstar and warhammer from Chiv, I think the tree branch does more damage than the warhammer in this game.

The warhammer can two shot tier 3 armour, and its alternate mode increases damage dealt on headshots. The mace does deal even more damage, but costs 4 points while the warhammer costs 2.

Knight 380 1507

You can get in touch with the developers at [email protected] or send them a private message here if you have not done so already.

How does one report individual abusers? I've emailed as well, but I'm unsure if that was sufficient.

Message a moderator here or on the Discord and post the evidence along with a link to their Steam profile.
