Other than this I see no ‘abusing’ or things that might make it less competetive and when I mean competetive I’m talking about teambased fights not duels.
I meant abusing as used constantly. It’s used in every fight between each combatant, because the only ways of countering this (other than fighting fire with fire) is being an archer and picking targets from afar or using long range weapon and using distance and positioning over speed.
So millions of people who bought this game stopped playing because they were getting owned by people who “abused” their way to victory? Its not realistic to state that. There is a deeper issue here than just l33t player making millions of players rage quit and I’ve already explained that deeper problem.
You think so, but your opinion might not be correct. If we have a game centred around combat and combat feels wrong or bugged, etc. then having flawed combat will make players leave. Take distance into consideration. The closer you were the worse parrying was, because how system works. That’s why the Bubble came into play (it didn’t work and created other issues on its own though). Also attacks like stabs with long weapons were messed up (they were both faster and sometimes came through blocks due to how tracers worked). I could go on and on. Combat in Chivalry is far from ideal, but before we had experienced players this issue wasn’t as noticeable and I know that, because I was a newcomer to Chivalry once. I also heard them saying so in the game.
If people(read casuals) were dissatisfied with how the animations worked then surely you should’ve read more topics about it or even reviews but the reality is that they play it and enjoy it very briefly before moving on to the next best bargains on steam that they can enjoy again very briefly until they stumble upon something that can catch their all too little attention span.
Perhaps. Then again, how many people register on forums to share why they don’t like playing Chivalry anymore? How many of them simply don’t bother anymore after some time and want to play a game that’s less bugged, has better fleshed out mechanics, less “cheaters”, etc.?
Complete bullshit whoever stated that lol
Blessed be those who have nothing to say and yet not put this fact into words.
