In light of recent publicity on the state of MORDHAU’s community, we would like to discuss our stance on toxicity and the topic of gender and race in our game.

First and foremost, Triternion does not, nor have we ever, had plans to add a customization option that would force a white male default. This is an absurd idea that stems from a misunderstanding in a recent interview by PC Gamer with two of our artists. These artists, both uninvolved with character development went into a verbal interview with minimal PR experience and ended up answering some of the questions in a misleading way, which combined with a lack of context, led to some very controversial statements. Again, we at Triternion do not, nor have we ever had any plans to implement any kind of ethnicity toggle on potential future character ethnicity customization additions.

The responses given were referring to the gender part of the questions, which were based off an old controversial "gender toggle" idea, with the intention being to give the player options to play the game with only female characters, only male characters, or both. This concept was brought forth by one of our developers and posted prior to the game’s release as a response to a large number of heated debates regarding the topic of realism. The idea to give players this ability was simply a theoretical solution to a difficult problem and was never intended to be the official stance of Triternion on this topic. This is a lesson for us that we must be excessively prudent with the wording we use in the future as it can be easy to misconstrue an individual’s opinions and ideas as officially sanctioned.

Shortly after launch and in internal discussions, the concept of a gender option toggle was dismissed as it would undermine the customization players work hard to create. The two artists featured in the interview were ill-informed of this decision, which was a major mistake and miscommunication on the side of Triternion; and in combination with a question on a sensitive issue of which they were underprepared to answer, strongly contributed to this misunderstanding. Our official stance is that these toggle options are out of the question.

In regards to community toxicity, we do not have prior experience managing communities of this size, nor the manpower or resources that established studious can leverage. Our team consists of 11 first-time developers working remotely and volunteer moderators who try their best to curb this toxicity and behavior across all platforms, including in-game. At the moment we are stretched thin with major important content additions and unfortunately we do not have the staff nor systems in-place to moderate everything to our intended level of standards. We plan on improving in this regard. We hope our players understand our situation and will continue to place their faith in us, as improving these things will take time.

We're really bad with timelines, we thought the game would originally come out in march 2018 - we're working on some things (new maps, ranked, etc) and they're nearing completion. We'd like to give more concrete estimates but it's hard without layers of project management and staff, as it stands at the moment we've got 9 devs all working remotely.

@Peacerer / @Botas criticism is okay, but none of this is constructive. if you continue to spam the forums with unconstructive whining instead of rational debate I will put you in timeout.

We're not good with time estimates, we thought the game would release like march 2018 or something like that

We're starting with ranked 1v1 and will go from there.

i like the idea of hitstop on rapier stab, could be cool, but the release on the stab needs to stay relatively short otherwise it will be a big floaty stab and feel terrible.

This thread isn't going anywhere. We're trying to improve our moderation, but we're a small team and there are a lot of you. I do apologize on behalf of the team for some of these... "people" that are spouting off terrible things in game, and all I can say at this point in time is that we're working on improving the situation.

@DrGert mod tools will come but it's not a super quick process. Right now main priorities are 1v1 ranked, Feitoria, and general polish with some smaller content additions. The mod SDK is the main long-term priority though.

@GODAIME does your keyboard have n-key rollover? if it doesn't then you're probably maxing out the amount of simultaneous key presses

watched the video seemed like you weren't moving at all when your inputs got eaten, in any case we'll look into it

quit whining, we're adding more skin tones in the future

thing is if we just take "white dude face #1/2" and make them have darker skin tones it will look weird, we have to make new face models for it to work properly and not look like mordhau blackface

it's not about being an SJW or not, it's about being a decent human being

sometimes people don't want 4chan levels of idiocy when they're just trying to cut off heads, meanwhile other people don't really care

average score and time spent in the match
we may do some changes to make it more based on player performance in the future though

Average score of the entire team/lobby? wtf kind of commie design is this shit

so the game gets all the scores and averages them, if you're above the average you get more, below you get less
