Apologies but there will be no key trading on the forums due to a high volume of scammers for these very limited keys. I'd highly recommend waiting for full release so as not to put yourself in a vulnerable position, as only about 3000 keys were given during the kickstarter campaign. At this point I'd be surprised if there was a legitimate key seller out there. Good luck and stay safe.

I don't think the issue is balancing, but rather gameplay diversity. If weapons had three modes to select from and a lot of them overlap with already existing modes for other weapons, you wind up with weapons not having an identity or playstyle that is unique to them. Pommel throw is intended to be a kind of joke thing, not a serious alt mode. Plus you can only throw the pommel that's on your sword. Not sure if you can collect pommels laying on the ground.

You do have a point about estoc alt mode deserving to be halfswording, but consider that estoc is already a stab based weapon and an alt mode that is stab based is rather redundant. The mordhau grip for estoc is to give it versatility so it's not just the weapon that only stabs.

grinder, you must realize you're not the only person who pledged to the kickstarter campaign so demanding significant change from this position is unfair to those who disagree with you. Your desire for double KO is not in line with the developers vision of the game. They have said this previously as well. Your suggestion is also not receiving much support from the current community. I would recommend waiting for mod tools and constructing your vision for the game complete with double KO

Since it's relevant I'm going to quote my own post regarding cftp from another thread. I'm not strongly for or against cftp. We are also able to experience this game without cftp right now by pairing any of the following against each other: executioners swords, alt halberd, alt bardiche, spears. Perhaps make a video featuring only non combo weapons and see how it feels?

It's an interesting mechanic; in Chivalry it was needed because man at arms could dodge any attack and force misses. Mordhau has no dodge mechanic, so there is no forcing a miss unless you outplay your opponent. Then you tech their miss with either a morph or a feint to bait cftp, which either they perform it and are punished or try to read your morph / feint. It creates a meta-game within a miss instead of just outright being punished. Think of the cftp from missed kicks from patch 14 vs the missed kick of patch 15.
I think it would feel better for the defender to be able to just punish missed strikes more simply by removing combo on missed strikes, and less of a technical response required. It would make more sense for new players, as you would normally suspect that a missed strike is something you punish. However this comes at the price of once more hurting offense and creating a dynamic where you play defensively to try and footwork strikes.
Removing cftp would dramatically change the entire game, it would also mean fights are shorter / more decisive and less layered. I wouldn't mind testing it but I have a feeling it would not be popular because suddenly a non-registering strike goes from "oops cftp" to "why didn't that hit now I'm fucked".

Probably better to just disable catching weapons mid air, it doesn't even look cool, looks like you used the force to pull it back to your hand. Also highly exploitable, I've witnessed players who could not be disarmed because they would always instantly catch and parry the follow up.

Cant bubble size scale with the weapon you are using? The smaller weapon, the smaller bubble. That way you will will always be able to get as close as you could ever need.
And i dont think this would feel inconsistent because it it would be natural being able to get closer with a dagger than a zwei.

I do like this suggestion however I think it runs into technical issues, such as will the bubble change when you swap weapons? If yes what behavior will be expected when a dagger user swaps to a zwei when in facehug with another enemy? Will it suddenly push you/your opponent slightly back or simply wait until the two bubbles are no longer intersecting to take effect? Could this behavior be abused?

I'm sure Triternion have thought about this suggestion and I'd like to hear from one of them about the issues of a weapon based player collision radius, if it's even possible, or if it might take too much effort for too little gain.

Executioners sword does one thing very well that others do not, and that's leg chopping a guy w/ light leg armor for 80 damage. Those leg chops are extremely formidable. Also can't forget the 30 stam drain

I'm not against the idea of your weapon load out impacting movement speed, but it would need to be uniform so you can't just equip a dagger for max sprint then swap to zwei. Maybe something like your heaviest weapon determines how much move speed is impacted, but this largely seems unnecessary unless you think light armor zwei/halberd boys are too effective. It'd be good counterbalancing should the high point cost weapons prove to be too effective.

I do agree that the game feels very much explored, however the way players interact with the combat has changed over time but they are subtle differences. I think the final layer that could reasonably be added to the combat are either perks or more weapon specials for more weapons (think like the billhook pull but more gameplay changing). This would open up more strategies and play styles. Maybe the game just doesn't resonate with you, Roshawn, and that's fine. I would never go back to chivalry after mordhau, and that's my opinion.

It was bastard sword, war hammer, dagger, full point load out w/ plate. Your point stands however, and does seem abusable at this time with so many weapons available for pick up negating the point system.

You should provide some examples how performing chambers is inconsistent when it should connect.

He probably means scenarios like this: https://thumbs.gfycat.com/VillainousAdvancedDavidstiger-size_restricted.gif

Where it looks like he chambered in time but the weapon floats in front of him.

Posting from mobile, yeah I agree that looks like it should have chambered but through no fault of the user it's the real time strikes system tripping up that 200ms window at the last moment. I do wonder if tighter sword turn caps would resolve edge cases like these. It is my experience that the sword manipulations are the most wild because of relaxed turn caps. My thoughts anyway, but it's a good example.

Greets,
Like Humble pointed out there exists a thread to contain all the weapon suggestions for Mordhau.
Feel free to repost your suggestions in the appropriate location: https://mordhau.com/forum/topic/2583/stretch-goal-weapons-suggestions-megathread/

Editing posts is also proper forum etiquette instead of quadruple posting.

Thanks!

I feel like headtracking is something that should happen when you're idle, and based on whoever is closest to your reticle. It should almost always be disabled for crouching, that's where it looks goofiest and has gameplay implications when you're trying to duck.
Also the distance to your target needs to be significantly smaller, I shouldn't be staring at people through multiple floors in a castle that I can't physically see.

Considering this isn't actually a thread for longsword discussion I'm going to close the thread.
I suggest that whatever beef you have with crush you take to private messages.

Things like 100% team damage and team flinch should (IMO) be included in the ranked modes, but in casual you're not expected to have to rely on teammates not being idiots

I've thought about this and after playing around for a while, I would rather get flinched and be forced on the defensive by an idiot teammate than be hit by a teammate, launched forward by the hit and confused about what the hell is going on as I swing despite being hit. I have also been fighting two enemies and had one smack the other into me as they were swinging, completely destroying me because I did not expect that swing to connect but suddenly they got a movement booster from a team hit. Overall, no team flinch has been really bad for consistency and I do hope to see it return for casual play as well.

This information seems more like a discussion about online gaming not unique to Mordhau: there is latency, and latency does mean that the game will never be frame perfect. For user connections you can say you and your opponent had normal ranges for ping & pktloss but the game won't report small jitters that can affect the overall experience. Are you trying to suggest these desync strikes are entirely new to the game because of patch 15? Which mechanics do you think changed to cause more or less desync?

Also random thought - Messer seems to be highly overrepresented in all hit desyncs that happen to me.

This has been my experience as well. I think it has to do with the really short combo time for the messer. Sometimes a messer will miss their first strike that I'll parry at, and it feels like I just barely can get my parry timing back for the follow up.

Edit: Also what is your camera distance set to in your game settings?

When you go to character customization in a level, you get this nice backdrop for your character of that level. I'd like to be able to set in menu which backdrop I have, whether it be the default blank that we have now, or the nice white hot intensity of tourney. Also being able to select which character is going to greet me at the menu would be nice. I like that the head follows the mouse, would also like to be able to grab and spin the character, and when voices are added to click on the character to make them speak.
