Bumpity bump because I feel that it’s a solid idea that got more support then opposition and I want to expose it to more people.

RE: Team Objective Sudden Death?
RE: The Man at Arms class. I'm getting real tired of your shit.
I main with MAA and I admit, face hugging is pretty borked, for any class really. But I hardly ever use lmb, it’s mainly overheads and stabs for me since I love my Sprinkler and fists.
I’m also greatly amused by the amount of people who pick a slow class and then rage when a fast class overwhelms them because they don’t adjust their tactics to suit the situation, facehug lmb spam or not. I’m not one of your knight pals, buddy boy, I’m going to swing, I’m going to swing a lot, I’m going to swing faster then you, I’m going to move out of the way of your swings, I’m not gonna stand still, I’m not gonna trade parries, and if my fist connects with your head, your skull will explode.
RE: Do you think overhead lookdown is fair?
Crouching overhead lookdowns with Zweihander anyone?
How about starting a fight with a feign into overhead lookdown?
Or even facehug thrust into (crouching) overhead lookdown?
Maybe overhead lookdown while fighting below someone on some stairs?
On the topic of swing manips though, I do enjoy the brandistock overhead “spear drag”.
I’ll start up and overhead thrust, make it stab the air next to the person’s parry, and then right at the peak of the stab as their parry comes down, I’ll turn a little and catch them with it.
RE: Why are archers so good in hand to hand weapons fighting?
My experience when I seldom I play archer:
I take a pot shot at an enemy archer with my crossbow and then start to reload, standing behind a rock and crouching down to minimize my hit box. I hear footsteps stomping towards me but my reload isn’t done yet. I press 2 and swap to my Thrusting Dagger, canceling my reload just in time to look up and see a fat Maul about to crash down on my head. I blandly press rmb and easily parry away that fat mass of metal about to explode my skull with my hand needle. (Kinda silly imo)
Scene 1: He keeps his primary out. I charge at him and stab the crap out of him, flinching his swings and stabbing around his parries with overheads and staying in his face even while he tries to back away.
Scene 2: He backs away out of my first stab and pulls out his Falchion/shield. But it’s no use as I charge at him, not letting him back away far enough as I stab the crap out of him past his shield with strafing reach-around overheads, giving him a parry and a quick stab to the neck whenever he has the gumption to try and quickly swing to flinch me.
The fight ends him with in a perforated corpse on the ground, and even faster if he decided to try and keep out his primary.
I main with MAA, but half the time my fights end way faster as an archer due to surprise berzerking.
Team Objective Sudden Death?
In my months of playing TO, I’ve noticed quite a few times where the clock is about to run down and the attacking team goes for one last push, only to have the match end as the cart is still moving (there are a few times I’ve even seen the cart get all the way to the end after time ran out), or while there’s still one guy left on the ballista, about to sink the last ship, or while there’s still someone in a cave swinging at the Royal Family.
I feel like SD would make the end of matches a lot more hectic and desperate while giving the attacking team the chance to continue on with the map.
Some suggestions for SD opportunities:
-while a cart is still being pushed
-while someone is still on an objective based siege-weapon/engine
-while someone is still on a point that needs to be held and captured
-while someone is still inside a room where the occupants still need to be killed
-while an objective signal fire is still burning
(and maybe add a 5-second grace period before sudden death ends, giving them time to get back into the parameters that would continue SD?)
RE: Whats your favorite taunt?
After a kill someone, I enjoy pressing X and then 6 to acknowledge their gratitude. It counts as a taunt, right? :P
RE: (POLL) Noobiest Vanguard Weapons
I mainly play MAA since I got all the weapons, but I switch between Knight and Van for some variety. I gotta say, Brandistock is crazy. Spear-drag kills for days with the “overhead” stab.
RE: Server list not refreshing
Same thing just happened to me, I was in a match and it just lagged massively and booted me out. Now my server list isn’t doing anything at all. Tried taking off all the filters and hitting apply as well as checking my internet and rebooting.
Edit: Can’t even go into training, game just crashes.
Editx2: Whoops, didn’t see the pinned thread about this. I beg fo’givahness.
Editx3: Followed the instructions and everything’s working now.
RE: Chivalry Update!!!
It’s dual wielding Primary + Secondary weapons.
As well as a new Peasant class that can use pitchforks, brooms, and animal legs for his primary, torches, frying pans, and shoes for secondaries, and their specials are all throwing weapons: rats, stones, and poo. Pressing the battle cry button makes him cry loudly and wet his pants.
