Community Update



  • @ScottPickrell:

    I’m going to voice my opinion again. Stick to bug fixes and new content.
    If the game changes too much, it’s going to be summer 2013 all over again.

    The reason the July patch was bad was because the patch ended up making the game less fun, and then TBS almost totally stopped trying to changes of any type. This does not mean all patches are bad, nor that they should stop updating the game. Pretty much every multiplayer game out there has undergone revision after revision tweaking balance years after release - WoW, starcraft, dota, css, tribes, etc.

    Please TBS, don’t be scared to change shit about the game. Change all you want. Just be prepared to admit that you’ve made a mistake and revert the changes if they end up sucking. Also you should introduce the changes slowly so that you alienate as little of your playerbase as possible.

  • Good list there. Obviously there are way more problems with this game but this would be a good start at least



  • Were is the poll master? Take 10 and stick them in a poll to be voted on. Imo Unlock/rank bug to stabilise the new players, Vans fed kryptonite to make the mortal again with us. The others suggested in some kind of order. The master poll maker is needed. You number 1 to 10 might differ from mine so poll it all. To give the DEV team the data they need.

    They already said they’re going to be putting a patch in the beta in the next few days to address the unlock/rank bugs, and other immediate issues.



  • @Tibberius:

    I wanted to start by apologizing for the period of silence from us, we are still trying to figure out how to approach having a community of this size.

    @Tibberius:

    While we were figuring out how we wanted to approach communicating with a far larger audience than we were used to, we decided to remain silent to avoid providing mixed messages. Obviously, providing no messages was just as bad.

    I’m actually surprised you guys realized this at all. Good job guys :applouse:
    Really raising my opinion on you here.

    @Tibberius:

    **Thank you for staying with us **through this period and hopefully a brighter, better future for Chivalry is on the horizon.

    Left MW a year ago when you decided to do the exact opposite of what every competitive player was telling you to do.
    Left DW a couple months ago when you decided that it didn’t need any game modes to be a game.

    Have fun trying to salvage your shit game and disillusioned community.

    Not mad at you guys… just disappointed.



  • Inb4 ban get the old cow of the soap box mooOOOoo. judging by those pictures one can only imagine the kind of crap you watch on TV. I have seen more depth in a rizla paper then you.

    I wanted to go out with some lighthearted gags.

    The least you coulda done was quote me so everyone can see it after I’m banned. But no, it’s not like being considerate is mandatory or anything.

    Wait… people still watch TV? Why?



  • No gold ticket for you. They already stood up and said sorry before your post. Admitting one made a mistake and saying sorry is admirable considering just how many cannons were being fired at them tbh. A lot of people would never have come back after such flack tbh.



  • @loin:

    I’m sorry I made fun of them then.
    Does that mean I shouldn’t get banned?

    Apologizing doesn’t make a game less shit.

    @loin:

    Admitting one made a mistake and saying sorry is admirable considering just how many cannons were being fired at them tbh.

    Except the one mistake they’re apologizing for is keeping quiet, which is honestly the dumbest idea ever. Them even thinking that’s a good idea really shows just how much thought TB puts into anything.

    Basically, apologizing for being stupid isn’t admirable. It certainly doesn’t stop people from calling you stupid that’s for sure.

    Which actually isn’t even my main point. My main point is that TB has fucked up so much. So god damn much.

    Except they’ll never admit it because admitting it means they would need to do something about it, and doing something about it requires actual work.

    Which TB won’t do.



  • TornBanner - I have 1000 hours in a the game and I am one of the leaders of Tempest (one of the better clans in the game). So I have a pretty good grasp on the game and mechanics. Here are some of my thoughts of critical items:

    • Rank Unlocks are clearly huge
    • Animations need to be improved (especially the Vanguard) - it’s hard to read what they are doing.
    • Lack of any matchmaking / ladder / ranking system
    • Bubble isn’t that bad but could be reduced a little bit. The biggest problem with the bubble is when you are falling from above onto someone (you get caught) - this needs to be fixed.
    • The feint window should be made longer, however, you should not be able to attack immediately after a feint if you feint towards the end of your attack. That said, you should be able to block immediately after any feint. The problem before the patch in July, was that offensive feinting was too effective - you could feint so late in your swing and with the forward chase mechanic… charging, feinting, knights unstoppable. So this needed to be nerfed. But what you did was also nerf the ability to feint into a block - this should be brought back. By increasing the feint window and SLIGHTLY delaying the ability to attack after a late feint, but allowing to block after any feint, you have brought back effective feint to parry and retained the nerf on offensive feints.


  • @Mystikkal:

    the patch in July

    Do you actually think they’re going to do anything about it _now?

    _I gave up when they personally told the top players to “shove off we do what we want” for that summer update.



  • BB your posts were hilarious. Love the brunette.



  • @BB:

    It seems like they want to turn a leaf… who knows if that’s true… but I thought I’d give my 2 cents



  • @Mystikkal:

    • Lack of any matchmaking / ladder / ranking system

    That should be relatively easy to implement and would certainly garner of lot of interest. Who wouldn’t want to see Crushed #1 in his time zone.



  • Oh looks its BB. The evil twin brother of Lemon.



  • i think balance council should be re-implemented, some of the top TB guys need to get into teamspeak or mumble and we should just hash this out in a civilized manner. Spook and I have been talking about an hour over what kind of changes could be made but still keep the game balanced, and it’s going really well. We need some actual LIVE discussion WITH torn banner reps about this stuff so we can all conversate, rebuttal, share ideas etc.

    That would be best.

    I sat in on a couple of balance council Teamspeaks or mumbles, and basically people were talking to each other(players) and they were going to submit their ideas to torn banner, but torn banner needs to be in on that discussion for it to work. Then they can hear all the counter arguments, why something would be impllemented a certain way, and provide their own input in real time. They could possibly give us an hour of their time and we could really make some changes.



  • @gregcau:

    I try.

    @Mystikkal:

    You get an A+ for optimism Myst.

    @50ShadesofClay:

    Really won’t do much good seeing how adamantly TB told off the last council. Did that conversation ever get leaked? It was pretty sad.

    How sad you ask?
    This sad.



  • @Sophax:

    Oh looks its BB. The evil twin brother of Lemon.

    Hmmmm…

    @Lemonator:

    Chivalry isn’t a melee game.

    I think I’ll take that as a compliment.



  • Remove feints,dragging,lookdown overheads,hit accelerating,archers,norse sword,MAAs,and game will be perfect.
