Patch 18 is here!

vJJM8zz

Coming with this update is a variety of content and gameplay additions - starting off, we hope you'll enjoy our newest weapon, the Pole Hammer. This weapon features high damage coupled with considerable reach, although it's definitely not the most agile - make sure to keep a backup for close quarters! That's not all, however, as Viking-lovers haven't been forgotten - make sure to give the new Round Shield a go for some serious defensive capabilities.

Aside from weapons, we've added quite a bit more in terms of new cosmetics to the game, improved server stability and optimization, some minor horde improvements, and of course a host of balance and gameplay improvements. Also, 80-player Invasion/Frontline servers will be making a return for select regions as well.

While there aren't a ton of major changes this update, there are quite a few minor improvements that we believe you'll enjoy! Make sure to check out the full changelog below, and have fun!

Starting today, we have removed all forum sections except announcements and bug reporting.

This is to help condense our feedback down into more popular social media platforms, and also helps to assist with moderation, as we now have less to manage for our volunteer mods.

If you would still like to give feedback (and we would definitely appreciate it!) please use our Discord - discord.gg/mordhau or take a visit to the Mordhau subreddit - reddit.com/r/Mordhau. Or visit the official Mordhau steam discussions.

Thank you all for the valuable feedback that has been given on these forums, and we hope to see you on our other platforms!

We're aware of performance on Castello, and we're looking into some options to alleviate the issue.

It will come when it's ready. I would imagine that we will internally test early this week, and if everything goes smoothly it won't be long after then. This being said, we were looking to push the update last week, but ran into some serious issues with performance and critical bugs that required extra development time.

This is why updates for us are very hard, and even when you look at some pretty big studios, they don't even give out release dates, or even estimates. It's nearly impossible to guarantee that an update will be ready when a single bug can result in a delay, and without an army of QA testers and the structure that AAA studios have, it's hard for us to get a patch done, and polished at a specific point in time. It's much better to give out very rough timeframes when we can (like I did by saying roughly mid-march), but even when I do that I get hounded if we miss these. So there's really no good way to go about it, either I give an estimate and people complain about missing the timeframe, or I don't give an estimate and people complain about a lack of information. 🤷‍♀️

Using the presence of cheaters to justify changing gameplay balance is not a valid argument.

trade ripostes until they run out of stamina, steal the rapier, smash them
mix in more attacks so you don't just die

The reason why we switched to Discord primarily is:

  • ping system
  • having a channel that is read-only in a much easier format (no unlocking/locking required)
  • more active users
  • more accessible platform (most people already have a discord account)

Unfortunately we don't have a billion people that monitor everything and respond everywhere, and I have to split my time between reddit/forums/steam/discord as well as customer support on facebook/our email. It is just more effective for the dev team to focus on a single platform, but I'll try to show the forums some more love.

so do they have to be posted on reddit or can they be posted here?

Sorry for the late reply. Post them on Reddit, so they're all in one place. :)

Also how many screenshots ? Some people share one while others share like 15-20 ?

Think I’ll just do one for each mode as I don’t see the devs going through hundreds upon hundreds of screenshots 😁

Thanks :D although a few helps us choose, it's up to you!

We post a lot more on discord - ie the dev snippets. Right now there isn't too much to talk about, except the upcoming map Castello, and the Mountain Peak expansion along with a few tentative balance changes; so we're just keeping our heads down and working. That being said, I read almost everything on here, I just simply don't have the time to respond to everything.

In any case, we're looking at an update coming in the next few weeks (hopefully) and we're looking at updating our long-term goals soon as well!

Yeah, so this seems to be a UE4 issue - not a Mordhau specific issue. We don't know exactly why this is happening, but there's a chance you can find a fix for all UE4 games. As basic as it sounds, make sure everything is up to date - drivers, windows, etc. and that could help :(

not a bad idea

i like this list, and the team has been looking at it too!

one thing i would like to suggest:

Heavy Quarterstaff - A slower more damaging version of the current "meme" Quarterstaff. The Quarterstaff would >sometimes be fitted with metal spikes and ferrules on the tips. This could justify increased stab damage in addition to higher >overall damage compared to the current Quarterstaff.

instead of this, a real brandistock. the brandi was an italian police/guard weapon fitted with a retractable blade.
in the normal mode it could be held further up in a fast-ish cut/stab mode with the spear point(s) which has good timings and okay damage, probably 3htk on full plate but decent against lower armor classes, maybe 1 headshot with cut/thrust and 1 stab to medium chest to kill for example, but not 2htk medium chest alone. Once again it would be relatively quick and have good windup/release etc. timings, so it would be similar to the short mode spear, but a little faster/weaker.
The alt mode would then retract the blade, and you'd grip the weapon back more, and with the visual addition of a few iron bits around the shaft, it would make sense as a chunkier quarterstaff with more anti-armor capability, but it wouldn't have great stabs.

Hey, please pm me with your steamID's (a link to your steam profile works) and we can take a look. I'll forward it onto our server tech and he can try to fix your backend inventory.

Check the discord - we have a fix posted there relating to a missing/corrupted .dll file with an alternate download!

If this doesn't help, please let us know and we can look into it.
