noob pattern predictions/fan-fiction is not a good reason to remove the most popular mode of the current gaming zeitgeist

That is exactly the worrying thing - the hottest game mode ever is also the worst one that Mordhau has to offer.

Predator, you realise there will be other noobs at release right?

Yes, but single-life game mode might be a bad first impression for people who play a melee game for the first time, though I would mostly blame Mordhau's extremely noob-unfriendly mechanics and speed rather than the mode itself. Many people will go first into BR (as it's familiar to them), it would probably make for a better impression if they first experience le big medieval battle epicness where you can be impressed by the atmosphere, brutality and Deus Vult rather than immediately get too close of a look into 1v1 ugliness.

On release, Battle Royale will only do more harm than good by frustrating new players and tarnishing valuable first impressions.

That's very much a possibility, I lived less than 10 seconds in my first 4 games last weekend and maybe 25 seconds in the 5th.

  • Smoke pot in the first chest, bear trap in the second, die before getting to the third
  • Spawn in the dungeon with the guy next to me spawning 1 meter from a chest and literally no way to go for me than through him
  • One shot from bow while taking stuff from the first chest
  • Don't remember the 4th one

5th one I lived a little longer, found something like a rake in the first chest, entered the dungeon and while opening my 2nd chest I got stabbed from behind because no footstep sound, turned around, fell for Rapier feint and died. I think it was Vesanus and I hate him very much.

So, these are the initial RNG deaths. After you survive this you have to duel people which, assuming you are a total noob, will be pretty hard.

It would probably be much safer to add post-release.

To be honest, there's nothing inhibiting you from doing that in 1st - it's just significantly easier in 3rd

Uhhhhh.....

Well, yeah, nothing is inhibiting me from making 10 3-pointers in a row when playing basketball other than it's going to be significantly harder than going 2/10.

Is that supposed to be news?

"Believable fights" was the phrase from kickstarter.

We have no plans to remove third person or change it in any drastic way, there are good reasons to have it in a melee game so any changes at most will be minor tweaks/nerfs. Maybe in the future we will have an option for server owners to lock their server to a certain perspective, but it's not something that can be confirmed right now.

What about official 1st p only servers?

There is a lot of ghost swings now. In some of the earlier patches I don't really recally ever seeing them (not counting the animation mismatch on the end of stabs we had for months) and now it's just one after another.

Strangely enough, they seem to happen on some players more often than others, as yesterday I had 3 in one round of TDM, all on the same player. I know there were player-specific issues before, like people having very stuttery movement, so maybe it's similar.

I know it 2HTK T2 chest stabs

T2 torso is a big meme though, as T0 and T1 have the same HTK in most cases, right?

Still better to be an actual 13 year old rather than an adult who behaves like a 13 year old amirite

It's safe to say that people who supported Kickstarter were mostly 1st person players from Chiv, right? Because, let's face it, especially in two of the main game modes Mordhau is a 3rd person game right now.

If there are no 1st person only servers at release and I have no other option than to deal with 3rd person cheese, I'm going to be rather pissed.

almost impossible considering that the main aspect around which the combat was designed around benefits the X greatly and is almost unusable by the 1.

The 1vX mechanic devs intended was 3rd person all along lmao

  • Make TDM a best-of-5 to 30 kills, remove non-fighting stuff from the mode

  • Remove fucking 3rd person REEEEEEEEEE

Going by the "so far" criteria, I voted no on both FL and BR. Both modes need work. FL's general idea has a glass ceiling to it that will likely always put it below Team Objective for me, but it certainly can be improved in a major way. I would give it a 7/10 potential, but 3/10 for current playability (1/10 if taking into account technical problems though...).

Horde also needs some tweaks, but I don't consider it a key game mode so it doesn't need to meet such high standards as FL should and I did have fun playing it.

It's LS pretending to be a Sword of War and a dog pretending to be a lion.

Can't afford the skirt (1000), Gothic Leggings (4000, RIP) and Gothic Sabatons (1000).

Shit, I blew all my gold on bullshit minutes before I realized they finally added the Agatha Knight torso.

When building fortifications you sometimes get lifted off the ground when the new layer appers. It also impacts other people, as I was fighting someone and trying to parry and when a dude on the other side hit the fortification with hammer, I got lifted and parried at the sky while getting my legs cut off.

Overall the mode is extremely annoying and seems like another instance when you went for detrimental "IT LOOKS EPIC" features like with firepots. Players constantly dropping dead or getting ragdolled and then killed are actual people who want to play the game, not single player NPCs.

Yeah, sorry but your main game mode at the moment is some fighting sprinkled on top of excessive walking, constant interruptions, getting shot and RNG deaths while the cata guy and the horse guy go for 40-5 each.
