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.

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.

Yes, and people have the balls to defend this shitty ass system, obviously some people are breaking too far the game mechanics.

Nobody's breaking the game mechanics lmao, I'm not on your side dude

Just because this guy might be using third person and trying to ground sniff (looked down upon) doesn't mean the game's mechanics are broken. You're both complaining about problems that don't matter or exist

its very sad to see historical medieval game butchered for sake of playing as girl in time were there is no real female fight during that era , what about adding space ship then ? or zombies ? you don't make any sense

You can disable female models.

@takemura said:
Stop being sexist, play as a male.

You. Can. Toggle. Female. Models. Off.

@TheMilkman said:
Better have an option to disable it then. Didn't buy BF5 for the reason of them ruining ANY kind of immersion adding Females. I DO mind females being in games where they don't fit the theme what so ever. You want to add females to a modern day shooter? Go ahead. Add it to a game they don't belong is just stupid.

YOU CAN TOGGLE 'EM

@TheMilkman said:
So we can add aliens and stuff into the game? It's not a historical sim after all

FUCKIN' TOGGLE 'EM

@ZugZugNeverEnds said:
when you're done adding females and naggers, can you add orcs and hobbits?? its not suppose to be historically accurate after all, oh and i really want some oversized square weeb swords too, and the ability to teleport behind someone and go "nothing personal shinderu"
oh and i want a flamethrower too, and orbital strikes.
and undead aliens.
and ... you see how the fucking slippery slope ruins everything yet?
