I can recommend this clan, nice bunch of guys and a high skilled brotherhood.
Golden star for the policy.
+1….good players and great guys
There’s a problem.
Lots of people in chivarly are called filthy peasant.
Maybe so but it beats the alternative which is to say nothing… at least people can be on the lookout.
Hey guys and gals…I’m not really active on the forums but play chiv almost daily. In my 500+ hours of gameplay, I’ve witnessed maybe 3 people speed hacking…
Well yesterday I ran across a speed hacker who went by the name of “filthy peasant”…I don’t have the ability to record, but if someone does, hopefully they can get him (or her) recorded.
Just a heads up for the community…
Wow tornheinous, umad bro?
Here’s a graph based on recent games developed by Indie studios
Sorry my last graph wasn’t up to your scientific method. I just listed the last 3 games I bought on sale.
Your point, good sir? Your argument is ‘welp, at least we’re doing better than these guys’? It’s an incredibly poor way to measure success, and indeed growth. See, you might as well list Chivalry alone on a graph (you really might as well have since the titles are again, cooperative, not competitive, except DayZ - not even calling it Arma at this point), because all it shows is retention. So how am I mad? I never said it’s a bad thing, on the contrary, there’s a dedicated few that love the game and… can’t get enough of it, apparently. That’s wonderful! But it does nothing from a business standpoint.
The question the devs have to ask is why the people, which peak during the oft mentioned sales and weekends and whatnot, don’t stick around? Why they aren’t inclined to praise the game to the heavens and expose their friends/contacts to it, driving up sales? Until they can answer that and do something about it, there will be no growth, only a small, more or less static contingent of dedicated players, heartwarming, but of little value.
The reason I think is simple enough. It’s a niche game that will only appeal to an audience that learns from their mistakes and strives to challenge themselves to get better. Unfortunately, a lot of people don’t enjoy the initiate steps of getting their butt handed to them repeatedly when they start and have to contend with others who are hundreds of hours ahead of them in experience.
There’s no way around that for the broad scope of the game, although something that was mentioned earlier that may help are starter servers for lower ranks, say 0-10. Tribes Ascend does this.
And the great thing about what Radiant said, is that the people who do stick around will form the base of a great community.
People tend to treat others with more respect when they’ve been through challenges together. i.e. surviving the skill curve of this game and coming out the other side. Can’t help but respect those who survive (and love :D ) the learning process.
So I’ve played levels 1-31 with a FOV of 120 with the belief that seeing more of my surroundings was best…recently switched to 100 and WOW! I immediately started doing so much better…the distance seemed so much easier to judge and everything just flowed better.
Now I’m wondering…which FOV setting does everybody use? Where do you find the perfect balance of judging distance vs. seeing more of your surroundings?
I tend to prefer the SoW as I like to stab a lot and I like that it is a bit faster. I can do well with the Longsword as well, but the SoW seems to better fits my play style.
Yes, Le Noob…I’ve fallen to your SoW many times!. ;)
Thank you Sir Pink, Mithron, Kongen….opinions all over the spectrum
Would love to hear from some of the other highly skilled players…
I’m kinda torn between both. I’ve noticed that the Americans prefer the SOW and EU players favor the longsword (maybe an over-generalization).
So which do you prefer…and why?
(Apologies if this has been discussed) :)
I played with a bunch of the int. guys on their TO server….and got mostly mauled. :D It made me realize that this game is really deep when it comes to the combat system. If people would take some responsibility and try to learn from playing and watching the great players, they might realize that it’s their fault they suck. (myself included)
I’ve logged a couple hundred hours (lv. 32) and have seen maybe 2 legit cheaters. The others were just better than me. Instead of bitching, I choose to learn and get better.
