as a chivalry fan since the first game the updates that make it impossible to play against PC players is unbearable. your losing fans and followers as anytime we try to play were vastly outnumbered by the PC community which has access to much freer controls and the aility to mods and hacks. and although im sure i will get tons of responses by PC players who claim their is no difference that is ludacris. and they either cant compete at their own skill level on PC or just suck that bad they need to invade console lobbies. I don think keeping PC players away is the answer but i do feel console players deserve a choice, s i have many friends who bought the game but have quit playing based around the unfair advantage and bull that the PC players are allowed to have. please adjust lobbies to if we want to play unrestricted we can but if not it does not ruin our experience with faster mouse and keyboard players who are annoying and petty because they cant hack it on a console.
Well, the answer is regrettably that Torn Banner Studios just wants to be in our pockets, and nothing less. It s a drowning calf.
I would help you out if I could

Reason for Applying (issues you see w/ the community, how you would like to address them, what you think you can do to help, etc): I would like to help improve the NA duel server experience by providing timely moderation and enforcing current TBS guidelines as well as providing guidance to any new or returning players to any pertinent new rules or rule changes. But in terms of moderating Chivalry, the thing I value the most is my daily interactions and conversations with the Chivalry 2 duel community. My ears are always open, at times painfully so when the solutions to their concerns and problems would easily be rectified with a moderator present. Being able to step in during those moments and actually help would be incredible. At the end of the day, I just want the best duel server experience possible, for the community (and a little selfishly, for myself, as I tend to hang on them for entire nights multiple times a week). I would also like to pilot a program I’ve been trying on my own, that I hope could lead to the return of potentially multiple full duel servers in every NA region during peak hours. I look forward to discussing these and more efforts I think could really help make the duel server experience shine.
Relevant Experience: (if any – moderation/community management on other games/websites or technical experience, etc) A diehard Chivalry 2 fan with over 500 hours since open beta, I’m also currently a lead moderator of two Chiv 2-based Discord servers, Tournament Grounds and Duel Masters. I’m also one of the lead organizers for the Trial By Blood duel tournament, its qualifiers, and any related events. Outside of gaming, I am the creator and curator of an Instagram account with 80,000+ followers that I have run for the last five years. I also work from home which allows me to be “on-site” at all times to address any time-sensitive issues. My time spent on the duel servers also has given me more than enough community insight to quickly step into the role of moderator and have a plan of action from day one.

I will get right to the point and hello! Summary --> Stop others from trashing this game/hacking, Be Positive, Be part of the solution, download a game recording software and submit hackers.
With the new update things are exciting and painful. But these are growing pains, not I stab you with a longsword sort of pain. It is great that a company has a roadmap and is dedicated to release new content to the community. It is also difficult when the rollout isn’t as smooth as you would like. Please be supportive, the game is fun and we know this. We just have to get through some rough times. I know this will set off a few of you, and that is ok, we still like you - so take a break and come back in a bit.
Patch issuesThe game feels jittery and the animations stutter. Weapons are now going through people and not registering. If I see contact on a person’s body I expect some damage. I should not be able to swing through their legs. Weapon damage and speed adjustments should be communicated. If it doesn’t work out you can change it back later as you balance. For example adjusted longsword to do 10 percent less damage, and slash range has been reduced by 15% percent. War Axe - has had speed reduced by 8% etc…
I usually play around 20 hours a week sometimes more and I am currently at 123 rank and often take the top 1 to 5 spots. When you are up there you see alot of friendly names of people you play with often. It is fun and rewarding to play against YodagotBars, Ryan Maul, NoHelpMike, Tao of James and many many others. We know each other and kind a know what to expect a bit from the higher level of engagement duels/combat. We know the rhythms of the game quite well and understand dynamics of combat as we further evolve our own gameplay. Sometimes we serve up fresh meat from our friends, and other times we are owned and die with a chuckle. This is what makes this game fun.
Now - with a new update we have alot of fresh faces coming back. THIS IS GREAT!! The bad news is that what to me was a relatively hacker free game is not anymore.
I was defending my gold like moma taught me in Coxwell around the statue. I hit the interloping Mason in the back. He proceeded to block me then run to the left around the center statue and accelerated at three times my speed. I could not catch up with him even when I hit the full speed run, he was still moving at 2-3 times my speed and opened up a 30 ft gap in about 2-3 seconds.
The experienced ones here know that you cannot really out run anyone. For some reason the person in the back gets like 10 percent more speed and can eventually catch up to get a hit in. After hundreds of hours, you know exactly how far an enemy can move to get out of your swing zone. Most of the time they can dodge or block, but not outright move 200 percent away from the combat circle and continue to do this.
CALL TO ACTION
For those of you still reading who love this game like I do, it is up to us to police our own game if we want to see it play better. Our job is not only to play if we want the game to grow, but to assist if we are able.
Download Nvidia Shadowplay - watch a Youtube tutorial and learn to hit a button to record the last 2 mins of your game. Then when you come across hackers/cheaters select the in game tool, and then email the evidence in.
I have downloaded for the first time the Nvidia Tool (you can use OBS if you want), to record games in order to help remove the blatent speed hacks. You can still beat hackers in a duel because you know how to play, but it will just be harder.
I called someone out on their hacking and they must have turned off or turned down what they were doing, because they lost about 100 percent of their added speed and acted like they were just good at this type of game. You cannot fool those of use who have over a hundred hours in this game. We have learned to use a critical eye.
Further on Hacking Cheating and Community Involvement
There have been posts about it being the responsibility of the game devs to police this. But if they don’t we have to step in. I would rather put a little effort in to help the game succeed and grow then to watch a slow death. Many people don’t want to “assist”, but to those of you who have time, to those of you who love this game, don’t swallow the bitter pill. Step up just a small amount, and maybe we can help the devs grow this game.
