Going to get this thread going again because CFTP really isnt a "skillful" thing to do, its actually very easy for the reward it gives. To be honest, all you actually have to do is spam left click which will trigger your combo then parry when needed as normal, you dont even need the feint.

A quote from him "they will become a 1vx monster"

unless they suddenly don't block half of your screen anymore they'll still be inferior to a shieldless 1h or 2h
i lose 90% of my 1vx's with a shield because i can't see the entire left side of my screen

They need to make held block faster to toggle, right now I can't think of any situations where I'd use it over just parrying an arrow or whatever

I honestly think it'd be fine to have held block function as it did previously as far as turncap and movespeed but just keep all shields as parrying shields default.

Right now there's still no upside because in 1vx the bigger shields block the left half of your screen for no added protection over the cuckler/targe

Now I know unlike swords, blunt weapons can't go through multiple foes with a single strike, but they already do heavy damage to compensate. Adding extra effects will only increase the gap imo.

all the best blunt weapons are 2htk, same as the best bladed weapons for the most part, and no hitstop still makes the bladed weapons better in most situations tho

i dont see why they even added hitstop to blunt weapons in the first place tbh, loved clobbering groups of goobers with the polehammer in chiv

guy with big slow weapon stab feints me (was a halberd in this case but it happens often with the zwei a lot too)
read his feint and try to punish with an accel strike, i'm using the hha
even though i didn't fall for the feint he winds up a swing during my release, hits me first even though i started my attack first and is in release

this happens so often and it triggers the fuck out of me

why bother not using a meta 2htk weapon. i like trying to challenge myself by using weapons that aren't very good (warhammer, hha, falchion, etc) and it seriously feel like 3/4ths of my deaths would be avoided if I just had a zwei or halberd

Far better than crossroads, but like every new map release, everyone ONLY wants to play it so I'm already sick of it. Mountain Peak is still my favorite

add all the gamemodes to the quickplay menu so people actually know about/play them

and make them 24man so individual skill matters more and it's not just 30 orangutans swinging zweis around on both teams

I agree only bc I like parry shields gameplay wise but want a more "knightly" shield for aesthetics.

Targe is too primitive, cuckler is too modern and fancy, I need something medieval.

whats funny is the buckler has been around since the 1300s soooo it still medieval

it's still a puny civilized nobleman duelist shield

I've been playing a spearchucker grug build lately, as an alternative to the typical greatclub grug.

Naked caveman with the dyed linen hosen to make it look like he's just wearing a team colored speedo
Bloodlust, huntsman
Short spear
2x javelins (or rocks, not bc they're good but bc it's funny as fuck to yeet a bunch of rocks at people in full plate and watch them stand in disbelief as they're pelted with 15 damage over and over)

It's so fun. You're fast, run around, support teammates by stabbing filthy urbanites in the head, 4 javelins is incredibly obnoxious, bonus points if you roleplay like a caveman (only speak in grunts if you chat, sneak around near back lines, hunt their cavalry like hippos and throw spears at them, sneak behind their archers and harvest their chocolates, etc)
I went 43-3 using this on a game of Grad last night. Had about 28 kills before I became King but I inspired someone on the enemy team to steal my build too.

Support builds in general are a lot more fun than just being a metalord zwei/halberdcuck.

Arming sword/medkit/crossbow is also really fun, I got over 10k points and 840 gold using this before on a game of crossroads pre-patchie. I forget the armor and perks but I believe it was 1/1/1 or 1/2/1 for fashion, I know I had huntsman for sure but you can fill out the rest yourself.

Engineer builds are really fun too, making pillboxes and outscoring the metaplebs with your meme builds is very satisfying. I have a ton of clips that I need to compile into a video one of these days.

Another one I really enjoy, more of a pure offensive build but very fun and effective

2/2/1, spangenhelm, chainmail, your choice of pants, fur boots
axe/targe, bloodlust, wrecker, throwing axes or rocks

barbarian or raider voiceline is mandatory ofc

the axe is a very unassuming weapon, it's FAST and hits hard. the mobility of the light armor and high damage and speed from the axe is pretty potent, i honestly prefer it in 1vxs compared to some bigger weapons just because the target switch ripostes are so fast and hard hitting

you can also go naked (0/0/1, skirt and bracers) with the same weapons and take some good perks if you're confident with your footwork, bloodlush + rush + wrecker together is scary if you have enough noobs to keep healing off of

heavy handaxe
Great for dabbing on people with the completely out of line slowness. It fucks me up when I run into it after not seeing it for a while, but in general the weapon is trash due to only being draggable, its accels are all but worthless in conjunction with the low reach.

mallets
Not actual weapons so whatever, but yes I agree the fact you need them and they take up a slot alongside your toolbox, and since they're too short to realistically ever defend yourself with, the slot baggage is frustrating. If Smith gave you a fourth slot just for the hammer that'd be amazing, actually.

ballista
A meme weapon that I hate. It should just be a mini ballista, why is it a machine gun?

firebombs
Overpowered. I'd love to take a smoke bomb to deal with them, except, oh, I can't, I only have three slots.

low armor
It's fine, it's just handled poorly. I think toolbox should certainly be 8 points but I honestly wish we could have 7 structures down. Cavalry can easily get through 6 spikes/walls on 90% of "chokes" in the game.

Good points. You need like 3 engineers just to not be spawncamped as blue on crossroads, it's ridiculous. The only maps where I feel like I can effectively block off chokes are mountain peak, contraband, and tourney, lol.

Especially agreed on the firebombs, I don't think they're OP but I think they way they're currently implemented is stupid. Why can a 2 point item that any ape can equip counter something that takes so long to set up with an 8 point weapon?

If I could actually repair my ballista through the fire I wouldn't mind but right now it's obnoxious.
