Lower Couched Weapon Damage to around 75

Unironically a good idea because they'll probably still die anyways, and you'll get kill credit, but it won't be an guaranteed death.

It could still deal 100 damage to the head, of course, just not to the torso.

Very nice video you've provided to illustrate that weapon hitboxes don't match their models.

Thanks, great post!

As a 2h weapon main: Shields are not balanced. Their "poor stam drain negation" and "gimped movement speed" are nothing compared to the ability to avoid reading all manner of feints, morphs, drags, etc. You salty shieldies are just scared that you might have to read drags and morphs some day, and that you can't just cheese your way into diamond in ranked. Adjust your playstyle and learn to parry instead of begging the devs to protect you from getting worse. Shields are boring as fuck to play against. Figure out how to play without them.

You are probably very far away from the closest server because of where you live, unfortunately.

However... it could be a routing issue instead. I don't know enough about this issue to know how to fix it, but I was getting "double ping" to certain official servers in the past. Rather than getting around 36~40 I expected, I was getting about 72 to 80, so exactly double. Some servers were normal, some were double. All of them were official servers of the same location. So here's where it gets real weird... I turned on my VPN (a paid one, not a freebie one), and connected to the servers I was getting double ping on, and I was getting normal ping. Weird, right? If the same is true for you, it might be a hint to why you're getting abnormally high ping.

They are just too powerful of a thing to be available for free.

The following is just a list of possible ideas that don't involve removing them entirely.


Earn Tactical Resources to buy Horses with

  • In Frontline, players could collect "Tactical Resources" by doing objectives and/or getting kills, which they can spend to spawn in Horses (with spawn limits of course) - rather than just being this free thing that spawns in a fixed location you can jump on and use. Tactical resources could also be used to buy siege weapons, bandages/medical kits, or even special weapons. That way, taking down a Horse or enemy siege weapon would feel very rewarding, because you are actually hurting the enemy's resource pool.
  • Downside: None that I could see, as long as spawn limits are done properly.

Add a bounty mechanic.

  • The more kills a player gets without dying, the more their bounty goes up, awarding additional score and draining additional tickets from the enemy team when killed. That way, when you finally kill that damn rider, you get a huge score to compensate you for all of your hardwork. This will incentivize more people to actively hunt down horses, thus indirectly nerfing them. By making high bounties drain many tickets, you won't have to worry avoid people losing the game because they're chasing down horses instead of controlling capture points.
  • Downside: it will make people salty if they get their kill stolen.

Require perks to be efficient with Horses.

  • Significantly nerf horses, then add Perks that allow you to deal extra damage with couched/rideby attacks, dismount/mount them faster, better control/turning, activate sprint to make the horse move faster for a short period of time, etc. Without any perks, Horses will just be a way to travel between areas. With all of the perks, Horses will feel as they do now: extremely powerful, but you will have to actually invest points into your character. If I have to spend 8 points on a Toolbox to deal with Horses, then I don't see why riders shouldn't spend some points to be effective riders as well.
  • Downside: None that I can see, but depending on how it's done it might not be a big enough nerf.

Require perks to attack while on Horses

  • Simple alternate idea to the one above: just make an 8 point perk called "Rider". Without it, you cannot attack while on a horse.
  • Downside: Unintuitive, less fun, and after killing a guy on horse you can't take his horse for a quick joyride and get a few kills.

Horse kills drain tickets.

  • If a horse dies, it drains a significant amount of tickets from the owner's team. This adds consequences to using Horses, and rewards those that seek them out, sort of like the Bounty System.
  • Downside: Allows troll players to "Feed" with Horses and drain their team's tickets, so it's probably not a good idea by itself.

One per player

  • This is a simple alternative to the tactical resources idea. Basically each player has the option to spawn themselves a Horse from the team's stables. You can only do this once per game, and there's a spawn limit (depends on the map). Theoretically you could have players spawn horses for their team even if they don't intend to use them, but it would still make the number of horses finite.
  • Downside: Probably won't solve anything because you still have 20~32 horses per team depending on how many people are in the game, and I doubt you'll need more than that. Furthermore it might create toxicity from players stealing each others horses, or refusing to spawn ones in to help their teammates.

...Just Remove Them (for now)

  • Yeah well, you could just remove them too. Put them back in when Developers have a real solution. Not an ideal solution, but if you ask me, it's probably better than nothing. Generally speaking Horses, while fun to use, are not fun for anyone else involved: not even their own team.
  • Downside: horse "mains" will rage

Calling someone out on the forums is a lot more toxic than some in-game banter.

Hello!
I've taken the liberty of rewriting OP's post as a convenient summary:

  • I like the game, but it's not perfect.
  • I think the weapon hitboxes are misleading compared to the viewmodel/worldmodel.
  • There are enough gimmicks to entertain me, the combat is too simple.
  • I don't like attack manipulation (i.e. drags).
  • I don't like feints.
  • Fuck rapier.
  • Make arrows deflect off of armor if shot at non-direct angles.
  • Small weapons should not be able to parry large weapons.
  • Seriously, fuck rapier.
  • I get routinely punished for gambling, and that is a major issue with the game.
  • Any mechanic of the game I'm unfamiliar with is an exploit.
  • I think the game is fun despite my complaints
  • If anything I've said here is wrong, point it out, so I can verify my facts.
  • Thanks

Honestly stuff like this occurs so infrequently it's not really a big deal. I understand you're salty that you got trolled hard and wrongfully votekicked, but shit happens. Just move on, find a new server. Griefers win by pissing you off, so don't let yourself get mad over it, just laugh it off and move on.

Unfair vote-kicks happen to everyone once in awhile, but you just have to accept that's a small price to pay for having the ability to deal with blatant trolls, griefers, and cheaters. You also made a mistake by attacking him back, to be fair.

Just realize it's not a big deal, and go play on a different server.

Bastard Sword already takes 4htk against armor in most cases

Only if you don't use stabs:

Stab to T3 Chest (38) + Stab to T3 Chest (38) + Slash to T3 Chest (27) = 103
Stab to T3 Head (45) + Stab to T3 Head (45) + Kick (10+) = 100

Also worth noting that Bastard Sword deals 50 damage to T1 Legs (both stabs and slashes), which are somewhat common.

Having a high FoV is a way bigger advantage vs a low FoV than being 3rd vs 1st person (frankly the camera angle of 3rd person makes it a disadvantage against enemies directly in front of you). So if we're worried about advantages then we should be able to avoid players using a different FoV or aspect ratio.

I highly doubt they want to split the community by these kinds of things as soon as ranked is released, it'll reduce the pool of players that you can match with, which could be disastrous depending on how many people actually use each option.

1st and 3rd person each have their advantages/disadvantages and I wouldn't say either is strictly better at this stage, having a ranked matchmaking where both is allowed will probably be the best way to find out if one is strictly superior, so it's best to wait and see what happens.

Alright listen up, buster.
Lemme just stop you there, champ: because you've entered LOGICAL FALLACY territory.
That right there, my man, is a FALSE EQUIVALENCE.

NO THEY ARE NOT IPAS ARE THE FUCKING WORST BEER AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

You have just revealed that your taste buds are garbage and right now I can only assume that if you do ever drink beer, it's either tasteless commercial lager shit, or some palletable baby drink like a vanilla bean porter. No self-respecting craft beer drinker would commit a sin as great as saying that IPA are the "worst" style of ale, considering they are generally among the most complex and interesting of all beer styles, along with saisons and bretts. I am willing to bet that even despite your bold claim of IPA being the worst beer, you've yet to even try all of the different beer styles so you can make an informed decision: you just took one sip, and because the taste overwhelmed your childlike tastebuds you wrote off the style altogether. I'm not even going to give you the benefit of the doubt that you merely had a bad IPA, which do exist, because I know better. So listen up, until you go out and try at least a dozen different IPAs of varying styles (namely west coast, double/triple, imperial, black), you are officially dead to me. During this time, I will not vote for you to become a moderator, and you will be unable to commission porn from me. I'm giving you a chance to redeem yourself, so don't fuck this up.
