All you badasses never bothered using shields. When you are beaten by someone just because they use a shield, you are maybe not that good.
The real easy mode in frontline is using spears by the way - not shields.

Also the parry box without shield is bigger than the block box of the shield. So much for the discussion about magic.

Epic strawman my dude, no one here is complaining about losing to shields, we're complaining about how shields get to ignore basically every offensive mechanic.

90% of the game is timing based and shields get to ignore that entirely because the devs are afraid noobs will insta quit if they don't have a giant crutch.

Are you complaining about the lack of realism?
In a game?

So I was thinking the other day about how Mordhau is going to have female characters added to it, then began to google images of shields. I imagined myself being surrounded by no less than three (3) female characters, holding their big kite shields in my face, rendering me utterly helpless. The thought of these powerful women holding up their shields and becoming invincible made me weak at the knees. But I figured, why stop there? The imagination is a powerful thing, after all. I imagined all of the women having the fat slider all the way up, they were armed with Bastard Swords, each wearing a different color of Landsknecht legs, thrusting the Bastard Swords forward so quickly my eyes couldn't even keep up, and of course chainmail mitten gauntlets. My mouth was watering at this point as they alternated between held block and unreadable instant stab animations, making my eyes roll back into my head as I imagined their ear-piercing female screams, like the dreaded howling of a banshee. It wasn't long after that I went from 60ml down to 47ml of semen. Why? Are you aware of this issue? I really want my cum back! Please don't allow Bastard Sword stab animations to plague your players! Please give me back my cum.

Sorry, but your point doesn't make any sense at all. I suck at melee and don't know the finer details of it, because I play mostly archer. But that doesn't change the fact that I very well understand the issues with other parts of the game and can give qualified suggestions.

If he doesn't even know about chamber-morphs, how can he possibly understand what effects any of the proposed changes will have to the combat and its meta?

Anyone can suggest something, you're right, but being qualified to balance the game's mechanics, especially the combat, requires a deep knowledge of it, otherwise the 'balancing' is just glorified guess-work and that's not what is needed. If you change X then you need to know how it might affect Y. If you have no idea how Y even works anyway, how can you possibly understand if your proposed change to X is not going to break anything and is actually an improvement?

Balancing games is not easy (and I don't envy Crush's task) but a change isn't just changing the thing you directly alter, it has knock-on effects. Without understanding the system as a whole then you cannot understand how your changes will alter the gameplay meta at all.

-increase Feign cost to 15 points for 1-3 cost weapons, 20 for 4-10 cost, 25 for 11+ cost weapons

This right here is actually retarded.

No need to be a nolifer nerd to suggest improvements. Many of his suggestions are about something that doesn't require deep understanding of the game.

I strongly disagree and stand by my point.

-spears Break on contact when you use Horses (lances stay the same)

Well that's dumb and illogical. Lances were single use weapons since they were just wood with a metal tip, sometimes. I mean sometimes they were just completely wooden. Also they'd have to let you get weapons back via ammo chests. Currently, you can only get back throwables and ammo, not melee weapons, or even bows and such from chests.

-any direct hit on chest from nay weapon knocks rider off of horse

Would probably make horses borderline useless but I mean, I could dig it.

-if you hit more than 1 person on horse horse trips

I'd say this is just overnerfing because you're angry and not really thinking about the greater scheme of things. This would just mean horses no longer can get involved in the melee, and it doesn't address the main problem in that horses accelerate too quickly and are far too quick to turn. Horses just need to take longer to gain speed, and especially turn around, which would make the slowdown mechanic actually matter.

Armor balance is fine as it is currently. The issue is the damage system is extremely basic. Yours adds another layer of complexity that would throw off the balance. Also it reads like you're using Runescape as a model for how armor works.

-fix the instant parry after chamber exploit

This is not an exploit.

-fix the instant recovery by jumping exploit

The what now?

everything else especially the perk suggestions

Dude if you made naked a one shot across the board and bloodlust cost 10 points, people would either be forced to use at most 3 point weapons for 1/1/1 or go naked and die in one hit, thus making the entire perk pointless, especially the stuff about it healing on hit.

The yellow bar showing your build's movement speed is helpful but kind of vague. It would be nice if we could see exact numbers for the build's walking speed, starting sprint speed, maximum sprint speed, acceleration rate, etc. Could be shown in a box that pops up when you put your mouse cursor over the yellow movement speed bar.

There is an option to hide the default classes already. Underneath the "Retire Mercenary" button click "hide defaults".

Could be your internet.
My internet is a bit wonky (via radio), with latency changes up and down. Fine in other games, but here it makes melee pretty much unplayable, with failing attacks and parries left and right. Add to that the rather instable servers and the general buggy- and especially the glitchyness of the game and you have quite a mess.

But then again... I read quite many reports about weird things, too. Lately you have players that can somehow dance through a whole group of enemies without taking damage (including my arrows) or players on horses with 10m weapon range. Seems all due to latency problems.

Sooo... yeah. Could be everything.
