Sounds like a 1v3 to me.

Well the other 2 didn't last long for the same reasons. Shields take so long to stam out that even multiple people bashing on it will usually just end up doing little to nothing besides exposing yourself to their friends

You're trying to argue with people who have several hundred+ hours in the alpha and understand the weapons/balancing more than anyone.

Pretty much every alpha player agrees that rapier is cancer and needs a redesign, even if it's not good in duels. Random stab spam should not be an encouraged strategy, and it will make a lot of players crutch on it and never learn the fundamentals of the game properly.

I think that last statement is more true for shields, which are the much bigger issue and much more gimmicky. People that just stab spam with rapier usually get countered quickly by even mildly competent players. I think it feels OP to most players right now because the game is so new still that they just haven't quite grasped how to counter that play style yet.

Nerfing shields in 1vx situations(harsher stamina penalties maybe), Siege Mode, and Group/Squad based Battle Royale

and YOU CAN even bait them

I only think YOU can't XD

In 1v1 situations, sure. Pretty much everyone here is saying that the problem lies in 1vx situations.

You can just hold RMB up in someone's face as they're fighting multiple opponents, and they can't do anything to you and you barely suffer any consequences for doing this. You just linger, effectively can't be stammed or kicked(because it's easy to backpedal and they rarely even have time to engage you), and you can just hold block forever.

It completely breaks the combat and the flow of everything. It'd be a much different story if they had a lot harsher stamina penalties(especially for holding the block for more than a split second). But as of now they're just total cheese boards in team fights. I watched one of the best alpha players get destroyed in a 3v3 skirm with noobs because he was fighting two shield users and one spear user, the shield users would literally just hold block in his face and stay outside of kick range, and the spear user would poke him in between their blocks. He couldn't do anything. Target switch? There's only one target he could reliably hit and he's tucked safely behind the turtle lords. Stam out the shield users? Lol good luck. By the time you land two hits on their shield to try to knock it out the other shield guy is already hitting you or you're getting poked by the spear guy - which you can't get to because again, they can just hold their giant parry boxes in your face for eternity

Cswic is right. Rapier is fine, and it has counters. If you just turn accel an attack after a riposte its a pretty good shot at hitting someone who's just spamming away, and if they are using a shield, accel to feint to kick followed up by juicy over head. Once player base figures out there is more moves than just left click and right click they will be fine and stop complaining. Nerfing these weapons will just make them unusable and not worth playing.

No, sorry, you are wrong. Because there are ways to counter bullshit that does not make them any less bullshit. Rapier is a spam weapon that has no place in the gameplay of Mordhau, despite it being counterable. Its one of the fastest weapons, with huge damage output in team fights, invincible with the right skill if paired with a shield and arguably one of the most dominant in pressence due to how fast you can stab someone who is fighting someone else. You are dead wrong. All bullshit has counters, that does not mean they are balanced.

You're trying to argue with people who have several hundred+ hours in the alpha and understand the weapons/balancing more than anyone. Saying rapier is op because you can't defend against some stab spams is just ignorant. It's not difficult to counter at all. Chamber baiting a stab into a morphed slash drag usually gets most of the rapier noobs.

A lot of new players are so quick to call things OP because they die to them a lot. The fact of the matter is, besides maybe shields and some animation sets on a few weapons(mainly polearms), all of the weapons feel pretty balanced. They've had over a year to balance them.

I love the battle royale mode, but going solo gets boring after awhile(in my opinion).

Being that so much of the game is centered around team play and the game is more of a blast playing with friends, I think it'd really benefit from a group/squad based battle royale mode.

Mordhau Games mod when?

Like a huge map where you spawn in a random place with no weapons or armour and only one life, and you have to find and pick up weapons and armour and kill people until you are the last one standing?
...because that would actually be really cool

I'm going to get into modding as soon as mod support is released to make this

Mordhau will be going for a realistic historical look for the armours and other equipment. I doubt black and red will be possible for platemail, but I assume it will be for cloth.

Also the examples you posted are fantasy.

first off, "platemail" isn't a thing
there's plate, and there's mail

secondly, THINK AGAIN NERD

But what if you get plate mailed to you

Mostly excited to have people stop crying about not getting in early..

In all seriousness, voice commands and general combat. As long as I get to thank some one as they try to smash my skull in, I'll be happy.

I got word from a tester that voice commands are not going to be in mordhau's alpha.
Only basic things like death and grunts.

Which tester?

Can't tell, don't want to get him in trouble
