The Best Chivalry Veterans are Console or PC ?



  • @lowhangingfruit I could easily say PC is superior. Even if everyone was stuck at 90 fov on pc, they would still be better because of their knowledge of how to play the game correctly. More people know about drags, mechanics etc.



  • To judge the skill level between Console veterans and PC veterans. They would both need to play on a new port where neither veterans know the mechanics, bugs or features. Other than that, you really can’t say which one is better since on PC, all veterans use a Mouse and Keyboard which allows for easier drags, ability to read feints easier and the overall mechanic structure for PC is supreme.

    For console, we are stuck at 90 FoV which limits our visibility if we play in 1st person which I do. On the PC most veterans turn their FoV up to 110-130 giving them more visibility and makes it easier for them to read feints. So with that in mind, I would say Console has it more difficult when trying to become a veteran, but for PC it’s a little easier to become a veteran.

    This is just my opinion ;)

    If my memory serves me correctly, 90 FOV used to be the norm in the 2013 PC chivalry days.



  • I think your correct tbh Mr Vizzle , I stuck at fov 90 because it’s what the game was released plus most other games have
    fov 90 by default ( I think)



  • Plus, PC Chivalry runs a lot better than the consoles, and has better FPS. Reading feints and reverses are a lot harder on console than on PC, and if I were to go over to PC, which I’m capable of reading both feints and player patterns on 30 fps (I play Xb1) 90 FoV, and poorly optimized servers, I would be really good. It’s like Goku training under 1000x gravity. I’ve played Chivalry on such trash quality that if I were to go to the PC version, I would be amazing.

    Not to say that other PC players wouldn’t be a challenge, but certain console players would put up a damn good fight after adjusting to KBM



  • Yes your quite right iah but a few fov 90 pc Chivalry players do exist tbh. If you run into one of those it would be a pretty
    even match I would guess. In the rarer cases still some exists who have only played knight at fov 90 in first person view
    since game release on the pc. Those kinds of players would find it very enjoyable to play on the console from day one tbh.



  • @lowhangingfruit eh, even though console is locked at 90 FOV, game still runs like complete trash lol. Idk what those kinds of players prefer though…more even fighting, or quality of gameplay. I would assume quality of gameplay, but I’m not too sure.



  • So it does seem the joypad breakers have it over the keyboard smashers, the eyes have it to the left mr speaker hehe.
    Some new fantastic console is due out Neo? so I finally get to try some of these console veterans at my fov 90 on
    a level field at last. The skills levels shouldn’t be to far apart , like the Two tomatoes that are running down the street
    alas as one got squished the other said Ketchup …



  • The only thing you’ll enjoy is players in 1st having 90 fov. 3rd is prevalent, the same spinning playstyles, reverse overheads, etc are still widely used.

    In exchange for 90 fov, you get 30 fps cap which I’m sure dips below, unbearable lag/high ping on any server above 10 players and working voice chat so all the 10 year olds can enquire about your mother’s state after last night. Also, stuck with a controller, there is no mouse and keyboard support.

    30 FPS is such a weird feel now

    I recently got the opportunity to play on a server that my craptop had no trouble running on.

    I even got up to 54 FPS with a craptop when I wasn’t moving and there wasn’t much in my view.

    It’s hard to explain the feeling, but the combat seems … slower with the higher FPS and parrying becomes so much easier. It’s a different way to play that I really enjoyed

    I then went back to console and played on it for about an hour. Console became frustrating to play on. I kept missing swings and dragging became much harder once again…

    It’s a strange phenomenon but 30FPS seems much faster (in a bad way) and just overall frustrating to play on even though in reality it’s the same game speed.



  • The 30 FPS killed my reaction time…



  • I do recall doing a few demo’s of Chivalry at low capped by ini file . ie at 24 to 33 on low settings
    The first was the gt730 then it actually worked with onboard video of a motherboard. Can’t you turn
    down the settings in Chivalry on console, does it have such a menu? I would have thought on low
    settings it would be quite ok on the console imo

    No, there’s no way to turn down the settings. Which really sucks.

    We aren’t allowed to sacrifice video quality for smooth gameplay



  • I hate 3rd person, it breaks immersion and is super annoying when someone else uses it to turn on you



  • @Hoplite-x-Viz do I know you? I think I know you



  • @Wilt I’m stuck Between two rocks here I’m the best player on console but there are people on PC like storm bow or reaper that seem to be ahead of me. Very interesting none the less.



  • @Champion-Midas

    Do you play vanilla? Try a mercs duelyard if you want to see some skilled veterans



  • @Champion-Midas Yes we have a harder time with our field of view but that kinda makes us crap since pc players are at such of an advantage. idk



  • @Wilt

    I think PC is better. Plus many doing the spin exploit without skill is like driving a google car, are you driving or just want to look like it?



  • @Wilt I am a ps4 player I’m not bad pretty meh I can drag read some feints and block decently but i must say the best players on ps4 at least were all pc veterans, but I think you mean if a ps4 player who played 2 years vs pc player who played for 2 years but has to switch to 90 pov which i think pc would still be better simply put a level zero who plays with pc vets and learns from them for two years will be better than the console counterpart because aren’t very many good native ps4 active players .
