    Massive Content Update Arrives!

    You stand alone in middle of a frigid and blood-soaked battlefield, riddled with corpses so thick that the snow itself is painted red. In your hand lies a Flail, a weapon made for only one purpose. The destruction of all those who oppose you. As a veteran of battle you know the landscapes and arsenal well, but now you must conquer new regions and master unique weapons and tactics. For any man can kill another in the chaos of battle, but the glory of victory in single combat is unmatched. Will yours be a name remembered for all time? Or will you die, bested by another who has mastered the sword. This is Medieval Warfare, and this is a massive update:

    ! Up next we plan to release a community issues patch focusing on key items brought up by the community as well as further optimizations and bugfixes!
    ! We told you we would make January! :)

  • Good Job. Best game ever played.

  • Took me 10 minutes of trying but I finally get to post! Woo Hoo! :D

  • Well played sir, well played! :D

  • Downloading update right now! Can’t wait to see everyone on the battlefield!

  • Omg this sounds so awesome! Cant wait

  • It’s still January!:D

  • Unlimited ammo for sling and knight speed nerfed? Anyway, great update.

  • Wonderful!

    Great job, TB. Keep the awesome work up!

  • so excite

  • Thank you guys for so much support!

  • Woah, great stuff. I really didn’t expect that much content… Now we only need more customization :)

    and a persistent siege mode

  • First of all, congratulations with releasing this awesome patch. However, I’m also a little bit disappointed because there’s actually still a lot wrong with it. Albeit small hiccups.

    A couple of keybinds keep resetting for some reason. I’m talking about the Perform Alternate Slash keybind mostly. I have not seen it with other keybinds yet. When you delete this keybind and save the settings, it’s actually reset to the standard value. You have to bind it to another key. Also, the alternate keybind shows as “INVALID” afterwards it’s saved empty.

    The server browser makes the game hang for short moments as it’s polling for servers. In that sense it performs worse than before, since before the patch it never did that.

    You cannot filter on Duel game modes in the server browser.

    Also, in duel mode it often happens that the mouse cursor doesn’t appear which makes you unable to use the menu that you get after a duel.

    The quarter staff and the pole hammer still show the stat Reach = 0.

    Audio settings are remembered but not used until the Save button is clicked on. Just a small issue.

    I guess I should have posted these before, but I thought these would be ironed out during the beta and RC phases :o

    For the rest however, I very much rejoice the release of this patch! :D Unlike my overal cynical tone of this message, I really love this game and I can’t stop playing it!

  • Kudos, Torn Banner!
    You did an impressive job in the last two months (well before too, but that’s not the point here ;)). Some AAA studios with 10 times as much developers in a “real office” get less stuff done.
    Upwards and onward, for the King!
    Now excuse me, i have to separate some limbs from their respective owners. 8-)

  • My first message to say thanks to Torn Banner for their good work 8-)

  • Wow, that is a really massive update!! I bet a bunch of people won’t be happy feint stam is reduced from 20 to 15 lol. Seems like an odd change but no matter.

    Looking forward to playing tonight! Thanks Torn Banner!

  • Sweet! Great job guys! Can’t wait to try the new maps and gameplay modes.

  • Developer

    If the “Official” servers are up and down a bit, it’s my fault, I’m trying to get the new configurations to stick.

  • Couple of questions:

    1. Why has the throwing axe speed been nerfed? Hitting MAA was already next to impossible, now its like throwing a balloon.

    2. Has the Poleaxe been slowed down? It feels a lot slower now, and I have not played the beta. Is it all in my head?

  • Thanks guys!!

    Great job. Downloading now. Cant wait to test it.
