45 wins and 90 losses at Duels. Feel like quitting the game



  • Hi,

    Ive got a disastrous win/loss ratio in duels 45 wins to 90 losses . I don’t feel like playing this game anymore because I know I can never recuperate from this.

    Anyone else has this kind of score? how do you feel about it?



  • I love you!



  • @madhorde:

    I got my ass handed to me and now I don’t wanna play anymore

    I only played 1 match of Dueling and I managed to get 6-4, not bad for first try. In case I do get worse, it’s a sign for me to step it up, not go cry on the forums about it.



  • Glad I’m not the only one getting trashed on Duel mode. For what it’s worth, I think I was at 15-45 last night, so you’ve got a better run than me.
    Personally, I decided to change classes and practice more in FFA. See if that helps.



  • @PornGuy:

    So you are going to leave the game because you realize how shitty you are?

    You know there are games that cater to the instant-gratification retard demographic, right?

    Oh look angry fanboy kid is here to show how pro he is. Why do you care if I quit you idiot?



  • Its absolulty retarded playing as MAA vs vanguards who are so OP now, MAA have been nerfed and they stand no chance vs good vanguards atm.

    lol That’s so not true. MAAs got buffed, halberd got nerfed. Why do you think why so many people are playing MAA now… The best choice against good vanguards is the shield knight or the MAA.

    take a look at the balance forum, more and more MAA are complaining that they are doing badly agaisnt vanguards who just spam left button and win. Shield got nerfed, I was playing MAA before the patch

    Look at the patch notes.

    You seem much more angry than he is…. And fanboy? Please explain what about his post makes him a fanboy.

    Maybe you would be better off in a game like World of Warcraft - you know, where you’re rewarded for everything instantly and not faced with skilled opponents.

    My duel ratio is 91-18. Thanks for padding my kills.



  • I think I’m at cirka 60-15 or so playing only MaA, and that’s against mostly decent and good players too.

    If you’re having problems against vanguards it’s because you’re using your classes weakness against their strength. Don’t play the game as if you were a knight or a vanguard yourself. Use your dodge and your excellent strafing speed to your advantage.

    Vanguards have never been a good dueling class. Weapons with longer range mean almost nothing in a duel. So what does the Vanguard have left that the other classes don’t? MaA’s are faster, Knights have hit points and shields…Vanguard Charge?..psh. Vangaurd is a teamfight/support class.

    To the OP…I would hang in there. If every loser quit playing…the game would die pretty quick. At least half of us have to lose at this game.



  • Hmm well i take every loss as a lesson. If you keep getting your ass kicked - you’re doing something wrong. Try other strategies. Try other classes. Ask the guy who’s murdering you how you can improve, that’s good i gotten better from asking duelers in previous builds for advice and they helped a lot.



  • I have 350 hours in the game and have somewhere around a 400-100 win/loss ratio. I tend to do a win loss of around 8-1 now but I had a few shitty games when i was getting back into chivalry in beta 1.

    Heres a couple tips. First of all, you need to know that you dont know shit about balance, and neither do I. Everyone has a playstyle that is unique to them. When matched against other players playstyles and weapons you are going to have very varied results. Certain playstyle and weapon combinations may be a lot harder for you to beat compared to someone with a different playstyle and weapon combination. You may only be able to beat a defensive MMA but have lots of difficulty with offensive MMA’s, other players it may be the opposite. The amount of playstyle + weapon vs playstyle + weapon combinations are endless. Unless you are doing some real scientific shit and have put hundreds of hours into testing and studying the game, you don’t have the slightest idea about the games balance. Everyone has their own personal list of what is overpowered and what isnt. What seems balanced and unbalanced is entirely subjective. Everyone is so quick to blame the game for their own shortcomings.

    This.

    I have about 290 wins to 55 losses



  • Not all can be blamed on player skill in this game sadly enough.

    We have a VERY buggy hitbox and by adding shields this only gets worse. I can not count on 20 hands the ammount of times the tip of my opponents weapon is exactly in the middle of my screen, but the damn parry will just not do it’s job. Or i chop at my opponents feet and his parry thats aimed it the center of his body will just parry my footchop. Luck/lag is a really big factor in this game.

    The classes are not even near balanced. In duels you have to be lucky in who you face with what weapons. (As example a norse sword is hardly balanced and belongs in my range of OP weapons).

    The fact you can steer your blows doesn’t really add to this all. I have seen people that aim at the air, start a overhand and then pull their mouse completely down. Resulting in what looks like spastic demonic movements and a somehow unblockable blow. There are more tricks like these, but you should ask the “pro’s” that abuse these mechanics.

    All in all chivalry is 20 % spastic mouse movements 15 % luck 20 % buggy hitbox 20 % gangbang 20 % lag and 5 % skill. Losing in this game ment one of these above killed you and guess what ? Skill isn’t the biggest factor.

    Well time to put my flamevest on, since for making this post the fanboys will try to murder me, but then again everbody his/her experience with the game is different and should be respected.

    I played c9 and that game was fast paced and 80 % skill based. I know a good duel game when i see one chivalry is sadly enough not qualified as a good duel game due to various above named factors.



  • That seems pretty good record, I would be happy with that.

    I would imagine most good players head for the dueling servers so you are not playing against the generic average player.



  • @madhorde:

    Hi,

    Ive got a disastrous win/loss ratio in duels 45 wins to 90 losses . I don’t feel like playing this game anymore because I know I can never recuperate from this.

    Anyone else has this kind of score? how do you feel about it?

    FIVE threads all whining about Vanguards and saying you want to leave? (I’m pretty sure I already merged another three into one as well).

    I’d have thought you’d have either learned to play or gone by now.

    Any more and I’ll have to merge them into one gigantic mega-Vanguard crying thread. :P

    You must spent all your free time counting pixels to place the tip in the exact middle of your screen so often. I couldn’t put my mouse cursor in the exact middle right now if I tried.

    1. Play tutorial again.
    2. Watch:

    3. Practice parrying/dodging on bots.
    4. Join Team Objective 24 slot server (most rookie friendly mode IMO)
    5. Play every class and every weapon (by doing this you learn weapon advantages and disadvantages also range!)
    6. Set rank restrictions if needed (no reason to get your ass handed by +30 rank players if you are really new into the game)
    After 100h of playing you should be semi-decent. Good luck and don’t give up.
