Specs:
Intel i7 4790
Nvidia GTX 650

I play at minimum resolution, 60% resolution scale and ultra view distance (because I like seeing people in the distance even if they are just a blob of pixels at this resolution :p). Most of the other settings only change my performance by a few FPS or less. On the expanded maps I just about get (a somewhat unstable) 60FPS, because of the unstable frame rate here I do not enjoy playing these maps however the smaller maps I find more fun.

But the devs also need to know where climbing can be exploited, so people should continue doing this.

The answer is simple... Implement full body motion tracking so you can do some epic matrixes and dodge the projectiles Neo style!

It occurs to me there could be a secondary purpose to this tactic other than the potential for distraction/injury from the throwing of the pommel itself.

The pommel is a wide heavy implement at the bottom of the handle. The weight probably helps with bashing people in the head for blunt force injury when you are grappling at close range in a half-sword grip and don't have the space required to stab with the tip or due large slashes with the side.

However... a wide pommel wouldn't be able to fit into chinks in the armor. But... with the pommel removed, you're left with a the narrow bolt the pommel was screwed onto. That narrow piece could fit into places that a wide pommel could not...

It's not as narrow and sharp as the tip of your sword, of course, but you can't stab with that in grappling range... but you COULD stab with the unpommeled handle once the pommel is removed, with greater likelihood of getting through chinks in the armor, or maybe even prying them open.

Of course there would be disadvantages to fighting pommel-less to keep in mind. I believe a pommel is important for the hand furthest from the hilt, in pulling the sword down and toward you during slashes. If you are pulling your sword and the sword caught on something, your hands might keep going and slide off the bottom of the handle without a pommel to stop them!

It would also be important if you had thrust a sword into an enemy and needed to pull it out, particularly if there was gore flying about and your hands/handle got slipper. Having a pommel below your pinky to stop sliding would be really important.

This is much more a concern for mass battles though, not a 1 on 1 duel where by the time there's gore flying about and you're pulling the sword out of a wound, you've already won and can go wash up. It's a concern for facing successive components after having hacked up previous ones. Pommels are more disposable in duels than they are in mass combat.

I believe crossguards serve a similar role. Not just to stop parried slashes from glancing down the blade and hitting your handles (albeit that's probably the primary use) but also if you are stabbing and something stops the sword (a block with a shield, hitting armor) the momentum might keep your hands going when the sword is stopped, slighting upward off the handle and onto the blade, cutting yourself. A crossguard would prevent that, and also lessen the need for a white-tight grip on the handle when making thrusts since even if you have a loose enough grip for your hand to slight, you can still keep pushing your thrust via the crossguard.

You do realise Mordhau isn't a simulator?

Here have some original memes

lol, yeah i guess this stuff can become tiresome but if you really don't like to see it don't go into off topic. General discussion usually doesn't have many shitposts... apart from the topics that were shitposts to begin with, but they are usually moved to off topic fairly fast.

If only mordhau included unicorns in it, we could have raised over double the funds in the kickstarter

more people need to see the path to true happiness, and follow the teachings of Maci who is truly the candle in the darkness, the sunrise in the morning, the spark that ignites the fire.
