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.

You'd rather there be no lore?

  • What set this war into motion?
    • How long has the war been allowed to persist? Are people tired of fighting? Has the war just begun, and is it backed by the bloodlust of the soldiery?
  • Who are the major stakeholders? Which side is better funded/justified/better liked?
    • One of the voice lines is "For the king!" but what king?
  • What separates the Iron Company and the Free Guard? (I had to quickly Google the names just now, in case you were wondering about how unique and distinguishable the two factions in the game are)
    • What is the chain of command in the Free Guard like? Who currently commands it? What is the group culture like? What are some of their goals, their defining values? What is their current objective?
      • What is the chain of command in the Iron Company like? Who currently commands it? What is the group culture like? What are some of their goals, their defining values? What is their current objective?
  • What is the significance of the castle in Grad and what does the Iron Company stand to gain from taking it/the Free Guard stand to lose from being routed from it?
  • What connection do the two factions have to the factions/stakeholders that hired them?

These are important questions and as of now, they're sitting unanswered. There's not much substance to the game besides me red man smoosh blue man, get head feather. That's all fine and dandy, I just expected more background to my murder. It's the kind of stuff that immortalizes a game in the grand scheme of things. How many years later are we still talking about the characters and jokes from TF2? It would be a fun game without the personalities, but with them it became truly timeless.

The irony here is that people on your side of the debate have fallen victim to the very thing this quote is cautioning the politically correct crowd for. He says that disagreement will immediately get you slapped with the fascist moniker without any thought required. Yet, in this thread people are immediately being labeled SJWs for saying that it's alright for women to be in the game. Someone accused fucking Lazy of being a "progressive" earlier and he's a right wing ancap libertarian lmfao

There is no irony here in my opinion as any "side" of a debate by default consists of lazy thinkers or rather non-thinkers who have set their identity based on ideology and feel that identity, i.e. their constructed false sense of self is threatened and thus feel attacked whenever in a debate with anything that opposes their ideology.

I hope by my "side" you referred me being of opinion that I think a careless input of choice of allowing female characters could be easily immersion breaking as obviously it is not a historical simulation, there is still a wide zone between Medieval setting with loose historic accuracy (could be called fiction) and then all out fantasy. Someone earlier compared Mordhau to Wolfenstein, which in my opion makes a gross error between differentiating the two, or rather not differentiating the two.

And if by my "side" you refer I was right wing, then you'd be completely wrong.

I am all for female characters if the implementation consists of carefully measuring what it means for immersion.
For that upon implementation I'd like there to be really good voice actors and possibility to turn females off in at least Frontline.
And once again, this is for immersion reasons alone because the game is set in Medieval battlefields, features a range of historically accurate weapons and armor even if from different periods etc. just for the reasons of variety which is a MUCH smaller stretch to make than having 50% of the battlefield consist of women, which takes the setting much further towards fantasy genre.

I think people of "your side" should not have such a hard time understanding the above if they actually think about it.
Sure there are trolls and those who interpret others unfairly on any side of any argument, always.
That does not automatically mean though, that everybody on that other side can be characterized by their lowest denominator, which is pretty much the point of Žižek.

Again, if Mordhau was made a fantasy game rather than historic fiction, I would like there to be non-human races etc. too.
And no, in my opinion Horde mode is not a big part of the game, the real game atm. for me is Frontline and dueling.

Immersion matters to me and I hope that these differences will be solved eventually intelligently for both parties.

I'm always a fan of realism and simulation and I can only hope more will be introduced later via modding.
Those who like more arcady / casual gameplay imo these days have plenty more options on the menu anyway and will most likely get whatever they want.

Ogres are in this game, so are dwarves. They're not playable, but they are here. You wanna run that "not fantasy slasher" by me again?

Uhhhh.... Horde mode.

It's part of the game.

You win.

Let's make half of Frontline soldiers women!

The only reasonable solution.

For?

It's fine, but I'm afraid it's going to be 50% people's main in a couple of months from then and forever. I think the plumes should have been a very high level unlockable. Let's see if players lose taste for it soon after buying It.

I'm sure there are plenty more eye- catching, even higher level helmets to come - things will diversify over time.

Nah, the problem people have with the rapier is its extremely fast stab windup and release. Full stop, end of story. Feints aren't even in it.

Lmao, what a depressing topic. Mordhau is head and shoulders above Chivalry in every aspect other than maps, but you know what's great about maps? They can be constantly updated and tweaked to alter the balance and advantages. Let me point you to one of the biggest eSports in the world, CS:GO - Valve constantly, and I mean CONSTANTLY makes changes to even the most popular maps to adjust balance, optimize, etc.

Triternion have no prior game development experience; they were borne from a couple of ex comp Chivalry players and while they had the right stuff for combat, most of them probably have never designed a balanced level before, excluding Vesanus. Fortunately, this is forgivable, as it is a learned skill. Or, if worst comes to pass and they can't fix the maps on their own, they now have plenty more cash to hire more level design devs.

Right now, I'm thinking about making a thread to discuss potential changes to Camp, to give the devs some ideas. I believe something like that would be a far better use of your time than making threads like this, Lord Snow.

This is what happens when people suck up the identity politics juice wholesale. You've automatically assumed that women in-game = progressivism, and your brain is too far degenerated into a reactive mush that makes sweeping black and white judgements on these issues to examine any potential reason in your opponent's argument. Because female bad.

I died to a projectile in horde mode. It made me laugh cause it was so FUN! I love dying to random projectiles 95% of the time in horde mode. So much better than Chiv where I actually had to be bad and make mistakes to die, how boring!? No, this way is much better, 10 mins of wasted time to get passed the laughably easy rounds to finally get a decent weapon and start the challenge, no you got hit by some shit and an arrow or something so fuck you. So fun and yeah I just can't strop laughing so I thought I would share my story and my JOY with anyone who wishes to care! :D HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

get good
