Chivalry 2 Idea Thread!

  • @Sir-Boring Definitely need shield jumps. Also bring back archer shield climbing.

  • Absolutely must have: Please rehire some of the voice actors from the last game. In particular, the Agatha Archer. I can’t live without him.

  • BRILLIANT team objective idea (h8rs gone h8): Team Objective should no longer be based on time (unless afk). Instead, it should utilize the old “resources” mechanic that TDM used to use back in 2013 or so. Basically, it’d work like this: each sides would share collective lives (a number that will be dependent upon how many people are in the server, or perhaps on the map), and two things would happen when a team lost all their collective lives. One, everyone on that team will get one more respawn before being permakilled for the rest of the map, like LTS. Second, for the team on defense, everyone will spawn at the final objective, where they will make their final stand. For the team on offense, they’d just continue until killing the rest of the defense.

    What does this do? It simulates a battle better. At some point, numbers will run out in a real battle. It will also lead to epic 300-type moments, where the few must defend against the many despite “impossible” odds, giving some opportunity for truly heroic matches.

    Potential problems and solutions:

    (1) People will hide when they’re on their last life. Possible solutions: The same one for when people do it in LTS right now: vote kicks. Another possible solution: start a ten minute timer only after the final “resource” for a team has died.

    (2) People will play more cautiously. Solution: no they won’t. Some do that already, and some are reckless even in LTS.

    (3) People don’t understand how awesome and fun this would be. Solution: get them off of whatever substance they are on that is clouding their judgment.

    A combination between team objective, old school chivalry TDM, and LTS (once resources are depleted) is long overdue. No other game combines those modes in this way. Chivalry is already on the front lines when it comes to team objective, but making a battle feel more like a battle, rather than a timed contest, will be amazing.

  • I would love to see a Curated item workshop for weapon and armor skins

    • FFA servers!
    • Enemies dropping weapons so that you can pick them up and use them
    • Throwing all weapons: Let me throw my 2handed swords and axes at my enemies, even if it’s not the most effective way to play.
    • Character customization: not only visual, but with talents/perks. Maybe even active skills like in Mirage.
    • Matchmaking system and the ability to queue up as a group.
    • Climbing up small ledges (like you could do in Mirage)
    • Duel mode

  • @bubblywums

    Competitive TO Maps fit for 5v5
    A demo system
    Ranked 5v5
    Stat collection tools

    Make halberd best weapon in game

  • Don’t know if this has been said before. Maybe incorporate ducking while moving ? Ducking down, leaning right and leaning left.

  • Ok so first of all, improve your forums. I’ve applied for a new account MONTHS ago and still haven’t received the confirmation e-mail. I’m only able to post here because I remembered I had this old account, but upon logging in I was greeted with a creepy message telling me how you collect our personal data and asking me to accept it before I can use the forums. Whatever it is you’re doing, get rid of that. I realize you also have Discord, but the more places people can talk about your game and give feedback the better.

    Now, gameplay-wise:

    • You don’t have to copy every improvement Mordhau did, of course, but sword clashing (aka chambering) is essential; it’s what makes sword fights look more real and believable. It was even (partially) implemented in Chivalry 1 via a mod, and Mount & Blade also has chambers. Not that you have to worry about copying Mordhau after they ripped off your game anyway.
    • Being able to climb objects is another essential feature, and it would feel really weird to move to a game where we can’t do it.
    • Picking up weapons from the ground is another feature that should probably be implemented.
    • Stamina has always been a cancerous mechanic in these games, as it punishes people for using the mechanics your game has to offer and turns balanced fights into a stamina war. Once you’re out of stamina you lose and that’s it; that sucks. Removing it completely probably wouldn’t be a good idea, but in my opinion the player’s stamina should be fully recovered after he gets stunned for depleting it. Being stunned AND still having low stamina is too much of a punishment.
    • And, lastly, please be very careful when implementing crazy new features like that hit to the head that stuns your opponent, which you’ve shown us in one of your Discord gifs. The spear kick gif was pretty awesome but this one doesn’t seem to be fun to be honest. If you’re adamant on implementing it, well I just hope it’s a minor feature that is easily counterable and can’t be abused.

    I wish the entire team good luck and won’t bash you for choosing Epic Store, even though I’ll be waiting for the Steam release.

  • No more AnotherGameDLC like a Deadliest.
    Please concentrate to Main part’s expansion.

    and, i dont like MxxDHxU’s horse and firebomb.

    Im using google transration, sorry.
    Thank you.

  • Trade hits are very ok. I actually hate Mordhau’s first-hit-to-flinch system. The problem with trades in Chivalry wasn’t that a messer knight could gamble and trade hit you… the problem was that he could reliably gamble trade hit you. Preventing obnoxious trades in Chivalry 2 should be about making smarter weapon balance decisions.

    For example:

    Messer was obnoxious in Chivalry because it was perfectly fast and perfectly slow AND any mistake was rewarded with a trade hit… which put the messer ahead in a fight even after it messed up. Messer was supposed to be slower, shorter and, thus, harder to use than a longsword but it wasn’t… because it was still fast enough to reverse just as well, slow enough to drag way better and if a reverse missed, one could bring it back around for a spin drag. It also had more reach because you could drag it out for more range than even a longsword’s stab.

    Messer stab was also just as good as a longsword’s since a messer stab on a MAA/Vanguard left them at one shot for a slash… and the slower messer stab could drag more for better side stabs that people weren’t expecting from a messer.

    My point is: Messer has pretty much every advantage over longsword and was only “equal” on paper. A truly balanced Messer would have had the same attack speed as a longsword but better damage at the cost of less range. Then it would have had equal accels/drags to longsword and a weaker stab… but decent damage… and less obnoxious trades due to less range.

    The same logic applies to Poleaxe Overhead trades, etc. Shouldn’t the windup of a poleaxe overhead be extended to make intentional trades riskier? The overhead swing itself could be made faster if windup is increased so it doesn’t have a buffed drag. Developers should be very diligent when playing with weapon stats this time around.

    I hope to see all of Chivalry’s weapons and skins… even claymore, brandi, messer and norse… but hopefully they are better balanced in Chivalry 2.

  • Double and multiple KO chance - if you don’t add this chance the game will be frustrating because every time when both players are low health and strike each other same time only one player dies;add flail weapons, archery must be very hard to master but very deadly, and i hope that you will release this game on steam also, keep good work to the game, deadliest warrior addon have a huge potential in the new chivalry.

  • INSTANT REPLY CAMERA on death, so you may understand who and how killed you

    DETAILED DAMAGE STATS so you may notice who damaged you, and what you made in reply.

    CHAT ROOM after round ends, so you may discuss it until you manually press “Join next round”

    FASTER LEG KICK and SHIELD KICK (and make it almost unblockable), so we will use it more often!

    LIGHT WEAPONS should do less damage against armored units and should take some damage even when block succeed

  • Be original, but… you can add some things that other games have. Use some features of mordhau and mount and blade, or medieval games, like medieval total war. Also, in mounted combat, why not some classes for mounted combat? If is a mounted crossbowmen, he will have a lighter crossbow. Or types of horses: Normal horses, Fast horses, mailed horses, armoured horses, and… why not? some elephants. And I say for mounted classes, with lighter equipment or heavier equipment. Lancers, knights, archers, javenlinmen jinetes. And in siege equipment, ballistas, catapults, working trebuchets, working mortars, cannons, etc.
    Add also slings classes and ammo and special ammo. Attach a stick to a sling for have more distance, and fire firepots and oil pots. And handgunns, very slow, slower than a crossbow, and with very low attack distance, but powerful. Also many tipes of shields. More weapons, and a training map like in c:dw, for train your abilities, and a gaunlet, like in that game. And still have the same gamemodes and maps, but add ones, like battle royales or improve the horde mode. And in horde mode improve your armor, to have no armor, to have low armor and to have later heavy armor. And add some weapons, like the pikes, halberds, and make a phalanx with that. And i say, diferent types of armor: Gambeson, plate armor, lamellars, and that. Thanks.

  • PLEASE make an option in settings to disable the games built-in gamepad support. ive had alot of trouble finding the file to manually disable it so i can use my gamepad properly with its own software.

  • There is not much that has to change from Chivalry 1 that game is still alive even though its release was ages ago for a good reason.

    Because it works.
    Yea yea we have seen it the complaints like feints and reverses but apparently it wasnt so bad that the game died out quickly after it release, Because people learned how to use it and counter it.

    I believe a game like chiv and surely chiv 2 should be all about skill.
    People have spend thousands of hours in chiv 1 for this very fact, To improve and aim to become the best player.
    Skill should be a primary focus.

    You guys have reworked the animations, In a attempt to solve certain issues that excited
    Reverses most notably.
    Personaly i dont like this, Its a nice idea but thats just it an idea.
    I fear by going down this path there are going to be limitations to what you can do regarding combat.
    In my experiance what made chivalry great was because it had a simple combat system with a lot of freedom on what you could do with it.
    Decreasing this freedom i feel that would destroy what made chivalry great.
    There are certainty better ways of fixing the issues that exist.

    Suchs as
    Add more variables to the damage system.

    Speed, By adding this many things will be instantaneously solved.
    Lets say there is a goldy lock zone for it where your damage output is at its maximum and go downhill from there.
    Drag to long the damage will be significantly decreased.
    Do a handle hit and you dont have enough speed build up and thus damage will again be decreased, Same goose for reverse attacks.

    It would be also balanced from the get go, Because a normal attack aka maximum damage output shouldn’t be to difficult to parry, The other attacks (Drags, Handle hits, Reverse) significantly harder to parry but it wouldn’t be nearly as punishing.

    points on the weapons.
    Hitting someone with the handle should do significantly less damage to certain Armour types(Notably plate armor).
    Also this would go hand in hand with the speed system, As the point closes to your hand will be the slowest rotation point and the furthers away would have had the longest time to build up speed.

    Add first hit flinch.
    It has been field tested on both comp-mod and mercs-mod.
    There is no reason for it not to be in vanila.
    It significantly balances the game.

    Parry projectiles
    Armour in chiv and i will asume in chiv 2 are not real things.
    I mean this in a sense if it where considered as actual armor it would protect you, Senario archers, an arrow would not penetrate plate armor.
    Well i have no problem with this however to balance the game out it would be nice to be able to parry projectiles.
    Otherwise your stuck with 2 choices

    • Use a shield -> this will make you significantly less effective in combat
    • Dont use a shield and your forced to tank projectiles.

    These things arnt that difficult to implement and would make the game a 100000 times better.

    Additional ideas
    Having squads would be a neat concept.
    Just like you can see your friends in game you could do this for your squad members.

    Flinch on team damage
    In my experience team damage was by far the biggest issue chivalry had made worse by having nearly no punishment from it.
    Flinching on hitting your team mates would avoid people from constantly hitting you while being in a combo.
    Also would make people more careful as they will have a instantaneous punishment as they cant parry for a brief moment when they are being flinched.

    People have begged for years for competitive chivalry and many have left du the lack of it.
    Hold tournaments from time to time, Perhaps have a ranking system like they do in counter strike.
    Encourage people for continue playing the game and that all the time they spend into it isn’t for nothing.

    How does it currently stand with the animations, The trailer showed off well how to put this lightly ‘odd’ things.
    Like the animations are not smooth at all and just kinda stops in cycles (Parry => Pause => 2 sec later continue).
    I sincerely hope that this inst going to be in the final game.

  • statue of clock tower

  • Add peasant weapons

  • I was about to add some amazing things, then realized the thread was from 8 months ago lul.

  • hello all, i will admit right now that i’m a M&B warband guy, played chivalry when it was an HL:2 mod, and later when it was a stand alone, but Always preferred warband.
    That said, warband is dying due to age, and its sequel, “bannerlord” is a total fail from my point of view.
    i have access to the beta of bannerlord, an i can say its flawed in the bones, mods cant save it because many flaws are hard-coded.
    while it will for sure have success for single-player, i’m sure it will hard fail on multiplayer, especially on the long run.
    so, i sincerely see a big opportunity for Chivalry 2 to be “the one and only” for MP medieval massacre!
    so… what keeps me and friends from playing bannerlord is the class system, especially equipment system, we all love to be able to choose every piece of our equipment, our weapons, armour ecc…
    what we dont like of chivalry is the complex combat system, i mean it need 3 different Keys to swing vertical, horizontal and trust… while M&B games are far moure intuitive, just giving the direction with the mouse and using just one key to attack. plus the missing of charged blows. it will also help differentiate from Mordhau.
    i know combat system will probably not change, but i suppose it was worthing say it.
    a bit of agility is also welcome, like being able to climb on objects ecc…

    i really hope chivalry 2 can take that “sweet spot” that will be left empty from M&B series.

    best wishes.

  • Really, the only thing that ruined chivalry for me in the past was the fact that you could do a complete 360 while in an attack animation. If that is removed then you have a real advantage on your previous iteration of the game.

    As for ideas, if it’s not too late, would be to (mostly aesthetic):

    • Add actual character customization in regards to facial hair/skin color appearance of anyone not wearing a plate helmet and gauntlets.
    • add vambraces to archer’s forearms (this could be a cosmetic item sold later in the life cycle of your game)
    • add a “view block” for people wearing helmets…(Knights and vanguards) although I know that might be a bit of an ask and is completely based on the person playing if they enjoy that or not.
    • Maybe some sort of system that advances you within a house or faction relating to your account where “Faction based items are unlocked”. An example would be a mason order within the mason faction and by leveling with this “order or house” you are granted access to certain armor and weapon skins. (this would add replayability)
    • Bring back the ability to “stick” to spikes and other various traps. This was available early on and was removed from the first iteration. (nothing is better than kicking someone into spikes and making them stick awkwardly to a wall, or falling into a spike pit to actually be skewered instead of a generic death animation.)

    That’s just what I can think of off the top of my head, I believe you guys have the knowledge needed for the actual “core” gameplay mechanics. I trust you entirely on this aspect of the game. I would just like to see more variation in characters than the first iteration, basically.

    Hope some of these ideas help out!
