Is it that outrageous to imagine someone spinning into an enormous sword swing? There are lots of kicks in real life that involve spinning the entire body to generate force.

I think babies who were cut down like grass in Chivalry are just scared and PTSD ridden

You can get away with a lot more in unarmed combat for a variety of reasons.

  1. You're significantly less likely to become mortally wounded from a single strike (i.e. exposing your back doesn't matter quite as much)
  2. The range is different 0-3ft away as opposed to being hit from 0-10ft away.
  3. It's difficult to block a kick with that much force and can be used to back an opponent up. Parrying with a rigid steel bar means that you're at little risk of things "going through" a block.

There is historical precedent for spinning with a greatsword. Certainly not ROHs but several Italian spadone manuals describe swinging the weapon in huge arcs and even rotating the body 180+ degrees in order to hit someone behind you. As in chiv and Mordhau, this tactic was probably mainly used to fight several enemies at once. And now, enjoy Matt Easton being an absolute madman:

(He also uses one handed thrusts with the weapon, something we see in Mordhau)

In the video yes the way he's using the sword is in an entirely practical manner. Those cuts are coming from the front of the body in a great sweeping arc that keeps the momentum. He is not spinning his entire body in a slashing motion turning his back and then losing all the momentum (which is what happened in Mordhau).

Also 1 Handed thrusts are good "ha got you" tactic because you've extended your reach to its furthest extent, but it's incredibly easy to have your sword batted aside and become disarmed in this manner. Which is why the excessive 1 handed thrust animations get a bit irritating.

Glitches/Bugs

Quite a few maps have a bug where when you clip into the wall slightly you can see through it.

May or may not be a bug - 360 degree attacks (LMB spinning) is still viable. I have a video of MonK Taboo killing me with 360 greatsword swings, it made me a bit sad. (I'll post the video upon request).

Yesterday my menu got stuck in the top left corner of my screen when attempting to do the flourish animation.
My game crashed and there wasn't a button to send the error report (I can't remember what it said and I didn't write it down).

There's no way to disable attacking by left click input which is really annoying when you have keybinds, and the mouse wants to do its own thing. My swings should not surprise my opponent and me.

It's the same game with nicer graphics

Run away, boy. As fast as you can. And never look back.

He meant that Skall would say that, he wasn't saying it himself.

Appreciate the backup, but no, I was speaking heresy.

The comments are delusional with Mordhau hype, and can't see that this game is essentially Chivalry 2.0. Which is good, but it's foolish to think there's some kind of magic going on here where this game with nearly all of the same underlying mechanics (read the dev page haters) will be super different.

My point, however, was that Skallagrim would probably give it a similar review and it'd make for a boring AF video.

Knight 40 18

Why? He'd give it more or less the same review as he did Chivalry. It's the same game with nicer graphics, (hopefully) more balanced weapons, and small amounts of esports potential...

Isn't this game supposed to release in January?

I don't know where you heard that, but no. There isn't any official date for the game, but their current estimate is Q3-Q4 2017. The Kickstarter is set to release sometime in 2016, but even that isn't set in stone either.

I swear upon Frigg's nipples I read that as a release date somewhere on this site. But okay that makes sense.

Knight 40 18

Isn't this game supposed to release in January? The lack of a dev blog makes me nervous even though it probably means they're just working on the game and not blogging. TornBanner has made me weary of silent developers though...

It's taken us a bit longer than we anticipated, but the third developer blog is finally here! This time we're showing off the vast customization options that the player has available in Mordhau. Check out the video below:

Unrelated to the devblog, we've also been cleaning up the forums a bit for the past month. You may have noticed some filler posts getting deleted to make topics more readable. Please keep things tidy in the regular forums, use Off Topic for your memeing needs.

As always, thanks for the awesome support guys!

Uhm. It's been July since we've had a new dev blog. What's happening?

People may be against capes due to the fact that they were ceremonial.
But cloaks. Cloaks could be worn over plate armor and retained or discarded quickly during combat.

Long garments such as cloaks and long coats aren't actually as restricting as people believe them to be. Just like plate armor.

Please, show me the manuscript where a cloak is worn over plate armor. If so I'll convert.

No.

Capes.
