I'm new here but the outrage over a free map is ridicilous. True the spawn points aren't great but you can easily kill cavalry with a billhook or use spikes. It's a nice change from the normal maps / modes .. maybe even refreshing.

Being free doesn't impact the map at all, if people don't like it, they don't like it. You could just add loads of unfinished junk to the game and then say well it's free, what do you expect, the game would die fast.

People are saying it is just a filler map until 2 other ones are released but I feel they shouldn't have added it to the vote, they should have just had 24/7 crossroad servers.

Alright, wtf? Is this update a joke? I was so excited for added content and balancing but they couldn't have released a worse map. The one thing everyone hates is horses and they make a map with 20 fucking horses. It is making me not want to play the game because there is no way to filter it out in the queue. Awful map.

Crossroads made me vote for Taiga.

Honestly I think it's pretty clear that it's filler content while they finish the two new maps. Crossroads is everything I hate about Frontline rolled into one bland and blinding map.

Yep, like I said in a previous topic: if the devs are smart they'll release mapping tools, rather than releasing jokes like Crossroads that they call a map

Well, it looks like some 15 year old teenager would mess half an hour with payed assets in UE4. Piss filter is really nice for our eyes, thou.

that thing you guys like about maps

where you progress through them towards the enemy base to win

yeah we don't got that here

that thing a lot of you hate

youknow

cavalry

yeah we got a lot of it

hope you like glorified king of the hill

and spawning into cavalry since the spawn points are unprotected for some fucking reason

also I really hope you like it when one team steals all the cavalry.

Not to be a TB shill but the animation jankiness in the trailer has been explained to be an issue with 3rd p/ 1p animation capture and will be ironed out prior to release (confirmed by a dev), though why that wasn't addressed for the trailer who knows.

I'm sceptical of the combat but purely basing that opinion on the trailer is a bit hasty, anyone who played slasher knows Mordhau's combat came a long, long way to make it what it is today. TB NEED this game to work or they will die, you can bet that this time around they have a vested interest in making this work, lets just hope they're not too scared to make the melee competitively viable.

Mordhau has better animations but the margin is extremely small. We're also judging off a small sample size of footage (the dropkick looks cool tbh, and the visuals look great imo)

Objectively the animations in Chiv 2 aren't that bad. Barring a few retarded things like the hitspark effect on parries, and that accel animation looking a bit janky even though it communicates information a lot clearly if it is an accel animation.

Bottom line though the animations don't matter when high level play will most likely break them anyway. We're really going to sit here and hypocritically criticize small amounts of Chiv 2 footage when we have retarded animations like the battle axe body feints, and eveningstar drags that look like they're just floating there?

I like that the releases are faster from the gameplay footage, and it might make parrying a lot more challenging if the parry window is tight and position of your crosshair matters. Even if swing manip somehow gone there are other ways to let people get behind the parry.

Chiv MW did not have any proper competitor. So of course many stayed for years. Then games like for honor and others came out, chiv was abandonned for Mirage which its name is fitting for its release, then it started shifting to what is now 200 players on Chiv.

No one in the melee games community cared about for honor, very few, if any, left for it, because it's not an actual melee game.

Literally NO ONE wanted mirage, and TB had abandoned chiv long before mirage.

The only reason the chiv player count went down is because Mordhau became a thing.We were all so excited about chivalry but with not shit combat, and now that we're all so invested in liking this game, we can't go back. It's not chivalry but with better combat. It's better combat wrapped up in an extremely boring game.

Think of it this way.

We would not have played chivalry for nearly as long had it had the mordhau maps and atmosphere. It would have been a complete fucking joke that probably would have killed the genre for a while.

Now imagine Mordhau if it had the chivalry atmosphere and maps.

Reminder

Chivalry 1's combat was a trash heap.
And we all talk about how shit it was

yet we all played it.

for years
and years
and years

It had a killer gamemode, and incredible atmosphere and drive.

Comparatively, mordhau has a joke of a gamemode, an extremely lackluster and boring atmosphere with no care put into it, and literally no drive to the game at all.

grounded map settings are boring, combined with the fact that you're literally just 2 groups of people fighting for probably no reason, and the fact that these 2 groups are unique in literally no way

on top of the fact that frontline is fucking trash

I don't care how good your gameplay is, if your game is fucking boring.

Chivalry wasn't boring.
Mordhau currently is.

Yes, the combat and animations in the chiv 2 trailer look like a fucking joke.

But everything else?
Everything else looked great.

I thought it still looked very clunky compared to Mordhau, but honestly I hope it will be good. Competition in this genre would be nice. As long as the playerbase isn't too divided.

The fact of the matter is that negroes were never knights in actual real history, so adding literal black knights is immersionbreaking af.

Well they're not knights, they're mercenaries, and this isn't a historical game so idk my man
