-Reduced knockback on all vanguard primarys by 15%

    Never was a fan of flying 5 meters backwards as a knight against greatsword, great stuff!

  • Increased the BUBBLE? WTF are you thinking? If anything it should be reduced….
    These means getting bubble stuck, greatly reduces footwork, makes fists and kicks almost useless…
    Already testing and getting bubble fucking stuck when jumping down on players… Fucking dumb


    Reduced Blowback by 20%? Again seriously? WTF are you thinking?
    It is already knight bias…

    Smokepot, about time…
    still no proper archer balance…

  • New MERCS Update 1.98


    -Updated smoke pot smoke effect
    -Greatly reduced world collision bubble radius which means you can get much closer to walls and other things in the world.
    -Player collision bubble radius reduced by 10% from current patch - World collision bubble radius reduction is being compensated here aswell so right now the bubble radius is around ~10% bigger then live.
    -Claymore overhead release increased to 0.525 (0.45 previously)
    -Claymore slash release increased to 0.525 (0.45 previously)
    -Claymore combo times increased to 0.65 (0.625 previously)
    -Fixed heater shield not working with flails
    -You can now use heater shield with other weapons then flail (not sure if this was already possible or not)
    -Added buckler to knights
    -Fixed Warbow not being able to one shot man at arms with a headshot using bodkin arrows
    -Bardiche overhead damage now 100 chop (95 chop previously)
    -Removed console command detection as said commands are no longer working to prevent people spamming servers

    Report issues and feedback in this thread. Big thx to beans who helped me with the smoke effect.

    In the near future there will be a new MERCS Beta mod where big patches will be tested on first before going live, stay tuned.

  • Can anything be done about that bubble? Alot of my attacks don’t hit with shortrange weapons while standing close enough. When attacking someone from behind it’s even worse. Was already bad in vanilla.

  • Another bubble trilogy incoming tbh.

  • I got something for you, I found a way to ONLY nerf stab feints.

    This first part is the base of it, which will conclude if the attack is a stab, in a combo, or just any regular other attack, you can add different timers for all types of attacks if you so wish, most likely also for different combo attacks, I have not looked into combos though. DO NOT add it inside default properties.

    //Has to be added
    var float StabEndFeintWindowTime;
    //Testing feints
    simulated function StartFeintWindow(AnimationInfo Inf)
        local float FeintWindowTime;
        SyncServerToState('StartFeintWindow', CurrentFireMode); //This is new
        if (IsInCombo())
            FeintWindowTime = Inf.fAnimationLength - EndFeintWindowTimeCombo;
        else if (CurrentFireMode != Attack_Stab) //THIS PART IS NEW!
            FeintWindowTime = Inf.fAnimationLength - EndFeintWindowTime;
            FeintWindowTime = Inf.fAnimationLength - StabEndFeintWindowTime;
        bCanFeint = true;
        if (FeintWindowTime > 0) 
            SetTimer(FeintWindowTime, false, 'EndFeintWindow');

    You also have to add a value for the new timer under default properties. I used an absurdly high value for testing purposes, and it worked just fine!

    Default Properties
        StabEndFeintWindowTime = 0.525 //This value represents the satbendfeint timers, derp.

    I guess this can help with 2h stab feints without crippling the ftp/feint abilities of overheads and slashes.
