Does Kendo have to be mandatory?



  • @XSPARTACUSX i don’t have 12 members, but I’m down to participate in this



  • @hit-trade I was trying to bring some thing to light before, allies. I think it would be pretty badass to do a 12v12 and have different teams show up. That’s what friends are for right? Vanquishing your enemy from the face of the earth.



  • @XSPARTACUSX SDS and old Atom incorperated kendos into the community as a way of flexing individual might; essentially, showing that the “links” are just as strong as the “chain” itself.

    As a clan member you never wanna be the weakest link.

    Hell, Leonidas explains it well: https://youtu.be/1Tad4C5DxD8

    See I don’t think you understood me but I appreciate the history lesson. Kendo is only made for two classes. the archer is deadly in any other field. we have some of the best archers. So how bout we just add an archer tourney. That’s about how fair that is for me for kendo. And I wouldn’t take me up on that I’ve seen other clans archers and unless you are Mister Twiggz it ain’t gonna go the way you want it. Not trying to sound like an a** just trying to rebuttal your point which was good! But still not entirely correct.



  • @Hoplite-x-Viz

    Kendo=melee

    Archer= ranged

    Your point is well whoever is best on the field. great point. But that particular set up is strictly for melee. And the battlefield as other weapons than a sword.

    @XSPARTACUSX you and I should work together to set up and archer tourney for some time next month



  • @XSPARTACUSX Usually as it pertains to archer mains during clan wars leaders would hold them in reserve during the kendos and utilize them during all out LTS, TDM, and TO.



  • @Hoplite-x-Viz
    That’s usually what I hate not participating. I’m going to start an equal rights for archers protest and line the streets of all the major cities



  • @XSPARTACUSX You got a point but if the XCCC were to incorperate archers in kendos it would have to be vs another archer or secondaries only as a compromise.



  • @XSPARTACUSX Theres a reason why most of the community views throwing axes as a penalty during kendos as well.



  • @Hoplite-x-Viz

    Absolutely agree. Good debate I saw both sides


  • Banned

    @Hoplite-x-Viz tbh I’m feeling an all archer kendo… solves all the problems ;P



  • @epickillmaster I think everybody is in agreement now that Kendo can be agreed upon, I have some guys that really like doing Kendo, BELOWME does, but like I said I wouldn’t be able to use my class in it so we might not ever want to do Kendo. Especially with the lack of players now a days we can barely afford for me to not participate.



  • Going Archer with a heavy Jav is meta. Cudgel and sabre are great as well.

    Kendos are typically only Knights or vanguards simply because those are the competitive dueling classes. You can argue that MAA is good as well and I can concur that statement if the MAA isn’t using his spot dodge as a crutch. However in saying that most of the high level maa’s on pc rely on it for when they get feinted and miss parry.

    You can kendo with an Archer or Maa, in a 1v1 situation archer and Maa can come out on top and that’s all kendo is, 1v1.

    If I was forced to go archer I’d probably go heavy jav or sling with lead balls, and when my opponent gives the the opportunity I’d land a javelin toss. It’s possible it’s just people lack the skill. Maa is seen on EU because their server runs the best on console rn.

    Smoothest servers rn
    EU>Central>East>West.

    But yah point being you can win as archer. Just get your melee game up.



  • @GeneralGatelo I agree with everything you said up until the last part. Yeah you can Kendo with an archer. I have before and what I’ve noticed is I will go STAB STAB STAB Knight blocks I go to counter block right away but instead of blocking his swing it will go through me and with the fastest swing Ive ever seen, I end up dead. Now if I was Kendoing against a man at arms, you are absolutely correct, I wouldn’t have as much to complain about, but if I don’t get to use arrows, maa doesn’t get to do his dodge sliding s****.



  • @XSPARTACUSX then that’s just your own fault lol.

    You can literally stab, spot dodge around the Knights parry, stab, dodge stab, dodge, stab and kill a knight.

    Plenty of MAA have enough skills to compete vs knights. I recently did a 3v3 kendo vs midas and we had a MAA on our team Chillin Dlyn and we won 7-2.

    Listen dog, if you wanna play Maa in kendo… Gitgud. Ask @MaHarold or other good MAAs like senpai dash on exactly how to do so. Do your research and learn more about your class via pc videos. Try youtubing terriper or finding a Maa main and implement it into your own playstyle. Gl



  • @GeneralGatelo Okay then you be an archer and fight Belowme



  • @GeneralGatelo Wait, I’m not a man at arms, what do you mean



  • You typically use bows as an archer. Your argument isn’t archer in kendo it’s archery skills via bows and crossbows being tested in clan wars.

    If you wanna be an archer in kendo it’s meta for you to play heavy jav and just use the shield exploits. For instance I can get parried run and jump away whilst I ready my jav and throw it before the enemy can swing again hitting him in his wind up… if you have the accuracy.

    Archer in kendo can be a real thing if you have the skill. Work on your melee combat via heavy jav and learn how to effectively disengage and capitalize on those aforementioned disengages. If the knight is stammed out and temporarily stops then that’s your moment of opportunity to throw a jav.

    A heavy jav can kill a knight in 3 stabs, similar to the sow and Halberd. It’s the meta weapon for archer in melee kendo. Imo, I’ve seen knight of night play shortbow jump away and weapon swap land a headshot weapon swap back while looking down to avoid the enemies slash and continuing the fight.

    My point being
    It just takes skill



  • @GeneralGatelo Just for the record I’m not saying I can’t beat anybody in a melee fight as an archer I kill knights and vanguards all the time, I’m saying the battle is one sided. If I can get more players I’d be willing to sit out for Kendos because I like watching them, but theres just not enough players anymore.
