Tier list?



  • Do we have a Chivalry weapon tier list by class? If not, we need to make one.



  • What are you talking about?



  • Like effectiveness? I guess Broad, Norse, War Axe, Morning Star, Quarter Staff would be first tier for MaA.



  • Everyting > Flail.

    Seriously, everyone will have different lists, that’s obvious. The same weapon might not be as good for knight as for MAA, for example falchion is really good as a MAA, but way too short for a knight.



  • knight: messer and norse
    maa: norse

    source: im the best knight and maa



  • @Xylvion:

    That’s exactly what the problem is. During tournaments somebody should be recording the weapons that make the most kills/get picked the most. By two years we should have a definitive tier list, one that’s not specific to a player.

    Edit:
    Your list is actually a pretty good place to start. I’ll give you an example of where we can improve it:
    You placed fork and claymore at the same tier. Personally, I thought claymore was higher than fork.
    If we had, I don’t know, fifty or so duels (Clay vs. fork), we could have a solid superior.
    Edit again:
    I meant with different people. Not just the same two.

    The game changes too much for a tier list, and there’s no where near enough data to support a real tier list since there’s so few real competitive people.

    Two years we will be on CMW2

    I dont think anything in tir1 compaires to the Norse nor do i think thrusting dagger is any better than the HWS

    Vanguard tier list:
    1: Greatsword, zweihander, Brandistock, Thrusting Spear, Billhook, Halberd
    2: Polehammer, Bardiche, Fork, Shortsword, Dane Axe, Claymore
    3: Waraxe, Sabre
    4: Cudgel, Hatchet

    There is no way Billhook is in Tir1 i never meet someone who did well with it and looking at the stats i know why
    I beleave that Fork is Tir 1 it just plays not like a spear

    Knight tier list
    1: Longsword, Messer, SoW, Maul, Grandmace, Pole Axe, Broadsword, Norsesword, Morningstar, HWS
    2: Dubaxe, Warhammer, Flanged mace
    3: Bearded axe, Falchion
    4: Heavy Flail, Flail

    I meant two years from Chivalry’s release. (Now) XD

    Yeah, I guess so. A tier list would be a nice thing to have though.



  • @TheFunnySide:

    As I mentioned everyone will have different lists.
    My favourite MAA weapon is the Morningstar, I don’t think Norse can compete with that myself. Norse is, in my opinion, really really good as a knight secondary but only mediocre as a MAA.
    HWS was really good, but with the nerf to it I really see no point in using it, the T.Dagger got really fast ripostes, “great range”, great combo speeds, short recovery. But once again it’s a great knight weapon.

    There is no way Billhook is in Tir1 i never meet someone who did well with it and looking at the stats i know why
    I beleave that Fork is Tir 1 it just plays not like a spear

    Fork is a great weapon indeed, especially in 1v1 situations, but I don’t think it’s as good as the ones I added to tier 1 in my list.
    Billhook is great, the weapon I got the most problems fighting. It’s great at flinching/hittrading, interrupting, deals a great amount of damage, is really fast. Really I see no downside to it.

    @Skin
    I wouldn’t put the current claymore above the fork at all, fork is a lot better imo, the claymore barely got anything to make it viable except for killing noobs.

    The billhook is a pretty good weapon. Though I’d rather have a halberd or Polehammer when fighting a knight. But its brilliant at dealing with other vanguards and MAA

    Fork is too low damaging to be useful in a team environment. You take too bloody long to kill people with it.



  • @lemonater47:

    It’s one of the best support weapons there is though.


  • Global Moderator

    Yeah but as soon as you come up against two more or less decent players and you have a fork in your hands you are pretty damn screwed. Spear and Brandi are much better at the support role anyway.



  • Agreed. Fork can be really useful on duels or small battles as a 2vs2, but anything bigger comes with the chance of possible enemy reinforcements when fights are prolonged and it’s just impossible with a Fork to dispose of enemies quickly enough on your own.

    It’s the ultimate flinch-machine, though. It’s a bit like pre-patch pebbles; dealing very little damage but still constantly flinching your opponent from a short but safe distance so your teammates can finish him off.

    The fork’s a great janitor weapon, you’re not meant to fight with it but to just go in and get the final hit on everyone who’s low. It’s pretty good in team fights, but there are better weapons.
