Have to agree with my guys above. I retract my (very hostile) statement in the now-deleted thread in the bug reporting section, since at least you reopened the locked threads on the rest of the forum for viewing.

However, I have to admit that I'm now very disillusioned with this team and studio that I once had complete faith in. Not only did you slowly distance yourself from and then spit in the face of this once tight knit community, but many, many of the things that you've promised since the inception of these forums have either been half-assed, removed/scrapped entirely, or seemingly forgotten long ago with not a whisper anywhere.

I pledged $100 to back Mordhau and when I went to try to have a conversation with the devs on discord the past few days I and others were outright ignored. The amount of carelessness they display in all things has really turned me off of supporting them in the future.

Sammy gayed too hard and collapsed into the alphabet singularity

Now that I've had a lot of time to reflect on mordhau in hindsight, I think the game suffered primarily from too much feature creep too early in its development. Instead of starting very small, with only a handful of weapons that fit different niches and worked well in different situations, the devs tried to bring the whole circus to town right from the get-go, including tons of extra mechanics, modes, and new weapons and other gadgets and then got totally overwhelmed trying to fit them all into one streamlined, aesthetically pleasing package. The amount of content they were aiming for fell very much into the realm of quantity over quality so that you had a handful of artists designing things and one or two people frantically trying to balance them into the game. I don't think they've ever found their footing after release either, as many other alpha backers will attest that combat was more satisfying in earlier patches.

I say all this to say, I would have been perfectly fine playing a game much smaller in scope, yet more satisfying in experience while the devs worked on adding things to the game according to how well they fit.

I hadn't fought in it myself. King Marox might know more

Thank god.

If there was one thing this forum was missing it was the in depth rape mechanics discussion of old

That guy that was raging about refunds was hilarious, but also the worst kind of player. Very obviously played with one weapon only (zwei) and shit themselves and screamed when it was rebalanced instead of... say, picking up and learning a different weapon, or - god forbid - adapting to the new playstyle of their current main weapon. This could have been easily accomplished by them learning how to play defensively with the new slower pace of the zwei, rather than (I can only assume) sprinting around the map, mashing M1 and swinging horizontally into crowds of random people like a brain-tumor-having ogre.

And now he wants to refund the ENTIRE game, a game he claims to have loved... because of that refusal to adapt. Can you possibly be more entitled??

  • Kill the archers!
  • I've got your back
  • Play the objective (THE MASONS ARE COMING FROM THE HILLS! PROTECT THE VILLAGERS!)
  • Behind us!

All very important lines to keep your teammates aware of what's going on in the battle, curiously absent from Mordhau even though they'd be just as useful. Any I'm missing?

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. 🤷‍♀️

Why haven't you expanded the team? A lot of your problems seem to stem from lack of manpower but Marox & Co. never used all that kickstarter money to hire more developers, testers, or artists, to my knowledge.

(Also I'm totally taking credit for the fact that we're getting a set of Dane Axe- inspired baxe skins next patch because this is the SECOND thread I made suggesting it)

I feel like I'm getting a meandering, rough and tumble education on the ways of the world from my never-quite-sober Vietnam vet neighbor who got fired from a teaching job for shooting up in the bathroom, and may be schizophrenic.

Horde mode overhauls I would suggest:

  • A way to upgrade character stats, similar to Team Fortress 2 MvM. For example: increased health, increased blunt damage, increased movespeed, decreased parry recovery time, decreased fall damage, fire resistance, arrow resistance

  • A way to refund weapons you no longer need for gold.

  • Have everyone press a key to ready up before a new wave begins, instead of just a timer counting down (also shamelessly borrowed from MvM)

  • Fix archer AI so they don't stand there brainlessly and let you cut them in half when you get in melee range.

  • Instead of having to buy the toolbox, give every player a built-in toolbox that starts empty and gains in ammo every few waves, encouraging players to work together and set up dynamic defense points against the hordes.

Hm, i just logged in after around 6 months of not playing and ive lost every cosmetics that i bought - what now?;/

Same happened to me. Start and exit the game a few times, maybe verify the cache for good measure. They'll be back.
