A scythe-harp and a flute-knife would be cool and war drums where the drumsticks are like the cudgel from chivalry. A cleaver-harmonica would be fine too.

Shields in 1vs1 are fine. Shields in 1vx stump even the best players if you watch Giru/Stouty/Bob stream for example. They just take away all your options with drags/feints/morphs or lmbing through several people to a guy holding RMB for a few seconds or five. Kicking a shield or jump stabbing someone in 1vx is a very quick way to die. It reduces the game to a zerg mode of attacking queing a lot of the time and new players are starting to figure out that shields counter even the best players and is an excellent crutch for not needing to learn much about the mechanics of the game. I was facing 2-3 shields in almost every fight on one server, it was a mix of frustration and mind numbing boredom. Might as well switch to firepots or try and get a horse or go play a cookie-clicker game where you need to press LMB a lot instead of just holding down RMB =D.
That being said i think this is a problem for a few hundred decent or skilled players right now. There are other bigger problems like the basic loadouts leaving weaknesses in legs and heads giving newbies cause to create threads about the executioners sword needing a nerf for example.

Haze covers fog, ice fog, steam fog, mist, haze, smoke, volcanic ash, dust, sand, and snow. There are rivers on both maps and the siege equipment and troop movements must account for some of the particles in the air which would make it dust and contribute to air pollution.
Never heard anyone defend Battlegrounds before, just years of people groaning over how boring it looks. I guess we could make a big poll or something and find out. I do like the blue shades of light mixed in with the grey on Battlegrounds and moving Camp to night with some nice lighting and having some torches and fires might save the thing from complete and utter damnation ( Sorry to whoever made it).
Perhaps we can make a Youtube series where we go into maps and speculate over what kind of atmospheric phenomenon are there and from what sources.

I see the map as a "Grey day at work map" just as Battlegrounds from Chiv. The camp looks more colorful than the rest of the map. I am sure there are many ways of fixing it including fiddling with the mist/fog or time of day.

In chiv you could get 1-shot pretty often or lose 90-95% of health and its frustrating to regen in cover or have to run in with no health. You get out of spawn or half way to the objective and suddenly you are dead or almost dead =). Even the best players can get utterly frustrated by a single archer as when Giru was screaming at Crush to fix archery for 1-hour on stream. I did see Frank top score as archer in the Frontline mode and he is more of a melee hands-on laminate-everything-in-sight kind of a guy.
It will take some time to figure out how good archers are. I was kidding about the free kill but i think you have skipped melee practice a few times to watch Flintstones reruns.

The times i have seen archers do well in TDM are when there are 3-4 of them and those games were horribly frustrating, especially on Pit as the whole team was stuck in base and the few times anyone got close to the archers they had 3 arrows every other second to try and dodge which they could not.
Archers are a risk factor in balancing TO, as it is frustrating that someone out of your control does damage and obscures your vision as you are busy engaging in melee combat. In Chiv vanilla they were one of the major frustrations with the pub TO mode and one of the major factors contributing to the games bad player retention. Peregrine can be unpleasant to deal with if you have low hp as he is a decent shot but if you reach him he can barely parry or read so its a free kill which feels balanced.

I was fun but playing less than 2 hours and beating it seems way to easy. There are so many possible combinations for bots that i feel it was way underdone. Last guy just ran and let the fire midgets kill 30+ bots behind him. Loved the fire midgets though even if they appear so strange.
Perhaps we could have crush-bots that LMBs their teammates and automatically makes montages and uploads it to the official Mordhau youtube.

I love the cast and music but the writing was rarely great and really went off the rails seasons ago. They left out Tyrion's whole personality and character development and made him conveniently stupid to fit their production schedule and their own lack of talent. Arya went full terminator getting stabbed, swam a long distance, looked ready to die but then she had the energy for another hectic fight and an extra escape swim then had a "cool tv moment" when she suddenly fought her nemesis in the dark and won.

Arya killed the Freys as a cool intro. Her entire character and character development did not matter. The whole Frey plot line of revenge was cut and made irrelevant to have a cool intro and save some time for the production schedule. The whole show is a ham-fisted mess trying to juggle actors and locations and patching the story shoddily around it.
Seeing Arya and Sansa together again should have been a great moment, Dany meeting Jon Snow also but it was just wooden and awkward caricatures of them at this point. Watching this show is like being continuously insulted.

If you can tolerate the really low quality, there's about an hour of me dueling some decent players. I played really shit during the first round -- you can see when I'm doing the riposte footwork I'm parrying early. Otherwise pretty decent duels. I think I get farmed 3rd map a little bit because I switch it up a bit and try to run into weapons, but of course this doesn't work. Not even sure why I tried to do that.

Next time I'll try to stream a pug or something, maybe up the bitrate slightly if my internet can handle it. The problem is that my ping fluxes a lot when I stream which is also why I'm just eating a lot of hits for free. This along with my potato graphics is generally why I avoid streaming.

I followed, looking forward to being a moron in twitch chat.

Who else thinks that CIA agents complaining about medieval weaponry are doing a poor job? Its does make the GS a bit superfluous though.

Or did i just defend you without you realizing? Thanks Jar Jar's more annoying cousin.

as I said, BR and cool youtuber horde mode will be completely worth the massive delay

red and basedpilled developers

This but unironically (also BR was fast to make according to devs)

Holy Mary, Judas and Jesus on a tricycle. No use criticizing Xatrian, its like asking Jar Jar to be less annoying, Palpatine to visit an orphanage and dispense candy for non-pr purposes or Yoda to do a few Bumfight videos. I feel like this info should have been all over twitter, youtube and the forums an unusually long eon ago but what do i know, living in a putrefied tree house and drinking the blood of bats to sustain me.

The head explosion is underwhelming at the moment. It really needs more gore. I would love broken necks and limbs. Adds a lot to the mood of the game. This has been talked about in a long thread about gore before and it came down to time for the devs as they are prioritizing getting the game ready for release.

I meant predator. Watch the movie, its a silly, sometimes tense action movie with quotes like "This stuff will make you a god damn sexual Tyrannosaurus, just like me" or "Gahhh! Get to da choppa!" or "I ain't got time to bleed".

Yeah, i hate to side with a guy hunting humans for sport but the frontline/battle royale will need a lot of testing. Running any plausibility generator says that march/april might be a crabwise psychedelic odyssey down a rabbit worm hole of Homeric proportions. It would probably do pretty well either way, releasing too early or not.

Liked a lot of the suggestions. Some more sound warning of incoming catapult rocks would be great since the catapult is better than the one in chiv with rocks being faster.

I can only imagine this is from Stouty playing the Culling with Crush and Crush being heavily influenced by the melee combat. Now Stouty feels like he let the community down and needs redemption. Its like Darth Vader climbing back down the air vent to gather the atoms of the emperor together again for one last shot at the light side.

I like the font and color of the "E" but there is probably an even better fit for the game. People are of course going full Bob the builder mania and are making nests for archers in trees.

Good video, i just wish there was a hairstyle i could take you seriously in but that is asking way, way too much too much. My guess is that women in the game means new silly and absurd looks and new fun voice lines and that no one cares much after implementation. Except Duguesclin and a few Castalian partisans of course. Or to quote Byron

She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
