I'm sure a lot of people bought the game just for that toggle feature

I thought your response was sarcastic at first because I can't imagine anyone saying this unironically

The question of Triternion's size has been on my mind for a long time as well.

Why didn't you guys immediately take any kind of chunk out of those massive profits and put it towards hiring some more developers, community managers, and PR managers? Triternion is in DESPERATE need of more manpower - I can't overstate that. You're dealing with a bigger fish than you ever thought you would and your small team is no longer equipped to handle it.

Additionally, there's a huge chunk of space in the lobby that currently sits empty of anything important (if you've finished the tutorial) and looks like it's meant to hold some kind of blog on new updates, events, etc. Jax, why not start a developer newsletter embedded in the game lobby? Let us know estimated time of arrival for new maps, provide progress pictures, announce community tournaments and scrimmages with the devs, there's limitless potential there. All of that would make it feel like Trit is taking a much more active role in their community and not just ghosting us until they have an update to drop out of nowhere.

you made a thread about you uninstalling the game lmao why are you still here

Because even though im not playing this game ever again i will still fight against the marxist agenda and everyone that promotes it.

You're not fighting the marxist agenda, you're yelling at a bunch of people playing a video game.

Oh my god, it's pretty fucking sad when people ranting on a video game forum about a video game think they're fighting some noble cause for the greater good, isn't it

With its explicitly non-Earth fantasy setting of Calradia

This also describes Mordhau.

On top of all that, Warband realistically penalizes female characters' stats in singleplayer, too.

Not their stats. It makes it more difficult for them to climb the social ladder, and such mechanics are not present in Mordhau, a timing-based fighting game.

And I already own Warband. One of the main reasons I chose to spend $30 USD on Mordhau was its advertised "believability" being better than Warband's.

Please elaborate on what you mean by believability - if you're referring to the combat, then I'm not sure what you're upset about. Again, Mordhau is explicitly not a real historical setting, so there's no other "believability" to be had, nor was there any such thing advertised in the original material.

Insulting players doesn't build your argument, it's just being tonedeaf to a legitimate community complaint.

What do you expect when we see these same arguments being made every single day despite being consistently refuted? Also, referring to Battlefield V is a false comparison. Battlefield explicitly takes place in a real world, historical setting, and featured frankly offensively inaccurate details. Were Mordhau such a game, I would be on your side of this debate.

Saying "good riddance" to quitters is not a good thing for a game with a concurrent population barely staying over 10,000 2 months after release. Retaining players is a good thing for Mordhau, and when there's an option that makes everyone happy and will retain players, it should be taken.

I hesitate to say that it would make everyone happy. It was a good compromise, but perhaps a compromise wasn't necessary. Look at the drama its hypothetical inclusion is already causing.

“just use mute duh lolol,”

The best part of the OP.

Hey Mr. longtime chiv server owner, can you tell us why you're making the mute function out to be a dumb solution that doesn't work, when it literally solves the entire problem of having to deal with toxicity in game, you absolute dingus.

Your stuff always looks fantastic Ratt. Just out of curiosity, you plan on doing more animation stuff?

actually yes

I even recorded a voice line for the first guy

Can't wait to see it, if you're planning on sharing it with us.

NPC response

Have you heard of the High Elves?

Did you hear about the chapel attack in Anvil? All of Dibella's priests and priestesses, murdered.

Good day.

Oh, it's YOU again...

You see those warriors from Hammerfell? They've got curved swords. Curved. Swords.

You picked a bad time to get lost, friend...

I think we don't need female characters or characters of color. It's medieval european setting, there weren't too many colored people or women fighting... I almost feel sarcastic saying that but it's the truth and I don't get all this brute force equality bulls*!T from pc gamer and RPS. I don't like the SJW movement, the only thing worse than that are real fascists / racists. (yes. you're basically the same)

It isn't a Medieval European setting.

Also, bOtH sIdEs

There's nothing schizo about it, that's legitimately how the world is in the West in 2019.

And regardless of whether they planned to cater to this "inclusive" vision or not, it's going to completely ruin the immersion of the game. And, more importantly- more hit pieces like this are going to be published until it happens and nearly nobody will ever know that it was their intent from the start anyway, so they may as well be doing it to appease the SJWs. That's how it's going to appear and all anyone is going to care about.

Right now it's a marginally accurate and semi-realistic medieval melee combat game. It can be wacky right now, but it's going to just devolve into utter nonsense if they add customization options in that let the trolls run around as "N-Word Jim" and "YOUR MOM THE HOE". Those things do not fit the historical theme of the game and they don't belong here. They may as well add birthday cowboy hats, dildo swords, and full body fursuits while they're at it.

Nobody cares about your immersion, dude. If it's so fragile that it can be broken by something like seeing a woman with a sword, go play Kingdom Come.

Christ, this thread is a worse shitstorm than any of the women discussion threads were. The amount of drooling idiots with reading comprehension levels comparable to fifth graders is unbelievable. No, the developers did not give into "SJWs" or whatever. Yes, women are going to be in the game. It's been planned for years. Fucking get over it.

Chivalry's solution to this was lobbies for people who were only under level 15, which could work very well in Mordhau.

One of the dumbest thing morhau has done, was launch without an option to keep the try hards away from the casuals. I've never seen a game kill itself faster. Streamers who got boners from getting over 100 kills in frontline. "i'm topscoring!". No, you dumbass. You are killing your own fun in the long run.

The fuck? No, everyone hated the new player servers in chiv. Reason being that it gave them bad habits and didn't prepare them for fighting more experienced players, causing them to get absolutely trounced the moment they turned level 15 and got kicked out of the low level servers. I read the Chivalry player reviews once, and most of the negative reviews I saw cited this experience as causing them to completely lose interest in the game.

@KonyHawkProSlaver said:

It's only for 1v1 duels. They needed a ranked matchmaking mode available at launch day.

Give the noobs a space to play against the noobs, and the no-lifers against the no-lifers. The larger the gap grows between average or top skill and entry-level, the more this is needed. Chivalry didn't do this either, and it earned them a lot of 1-day quitters who may have played the game long-term.

Why did you say what I already said but with more words

I was interested in buying Mordhau but with all of the controversy going around I wanted to wait to see if these devs were going to have a spine and stand up to the SJW crowd.

If they did then I was going to buy the game full price to show my support.

Unfortunately it seems like they have every intention of bending the knee to the outrage machine. It isn't your job to be the thought police. Your only obligation is to give the community the tools they need to avoid the players that they personally feel are offensive.

Damn shame.

How exactly did they bend the knee? They haven't changed any of their plans for the game in response to this controversy.

If you're referring to the plans to include females and darker skin colors, you're mistaken. Both things have been planned since way back in Mordhau's development, before the release of the alpha. Check the second dev blog.

New content coming (hopefully) soon that should help massively with player retention:

  • MOD TOOLS
    I cannot overstate enough how important mod tools are to the longevity of a game. They help form all kinds of long-lasting niche communities and new gamemodes.

  • New maps, Feitoria and another I can't remember right now

  • Siege gamemode

  • Ranked competitive matchmaking
    Will keep the high-level players interested.

  • Female/race/etc new customization options

People literally shitposting at this point because they hope for another PC Gamer article.

I just read it, and by god.... It's exactly what I predicted it would be way back when I first argued against allowing 'ironic' racist/nazi memes on here. Normal people don't like blatant racism or sexism, even if you're hiding behind irony.

It's the first time though that I heard about the devs contemplating allowing client side safe spaces for racists (disabling black/middle eastern people, whichever dev slipped that one out... yikes) and that they actually believe the realism complaint for females in Mordhau is valid, when they have said in the past this game is not meant to be historically accurate and, even if it was, plenty of historical examples of female warriors have been provided in this and other threads. You guys need to find an official position to hold and be consistent about it. Now it just feels like you're trying to keep everyone happy, which is impossible.

While I admit it feels good to be proven right in the face of people doubting what I said at the time, this really is all about the game. I love the game, and I want more people to play it. I don't want it to have a reputation as 'the game that all the racists/sexists play'.

For fuck's sake man, why are you buying up that crap wholesale? The devs were never considering a "white only" toggle, that was a sensationalist lie made up just for that article with the sole purpose of trying to stir the pot. There's absolutely no real controversy about toxicity either, go check the steam reviews are see how the vast majority are positive.

Funny, a million random individuals buy the same game > now they are a community apparently.

...that's kinda how that works, yeah.

Which the developers of said game are in charge of admonishing or endorsing each and every position this group holds apparently, or face the consequences of the left wing propaganda machine.

Being criticized for allowing racism and other extremist ideas to run rampant = left wing propaganda apparently. Classic.

Let's say that tomorrow, a large, high-profile group of players in a large multiplayer game - we'll use EVE Online - created a literal nazi clan and started hunting down players they deemed untermensch and mercilessly griefing them. Do the developers of EVE have a responsibility to take action in this situation? Absolutely. These players are ruining the image of the game and ruining the experience of other players.

Now let's say that instead of something that improbable, a portion of EVE players are instead toxic (and vocal about it), using slurs and insults constantly. Again, do the devs have a responsibility to do something about it? ...not really. There's nothing they can or should do without overstepping their authority. Toxicity in itself has never been a bannable offense except in extreme cases - cases which could, and should, be reported to moderators by the players, or muted/ignored by the players. The responsibility to investigate individual players doesn't fall on the developers/ moderators until a report is made.

Ignore the "gaming journalists" and keep on doing what you're doing, friends. The more you engage with them the higher the likelihood of a fresh new fabricated "scandal" occurring.

To be expected, really. The casual playerbase has gone away a bit given the lack of new content recently, leaving a smaller, more dedicated playerbase. They'll be back.

Yes the playerbase was going to decline, that’s just the nature of the niche market. However the decline has been so utterly drastic and so fast I don’t think it’s a healthy change and it’s a hell of a lot faster then how chivalry aged. They won’t be back unless they have more content, interesting game modes and maps as well as a lot of quality of life changes. HOWEVER I believe in such a small team that was able to create such a great game and if they set at it and open community modding so we can help make content the game can prosper and grow! :D ( imagine the guild or duel system I mentioned earlier )

There's plenty of planned and in-progress content.
