when you duel alot, the game really fucking comes down to rock paper siccors, its just bluffing and gambling.
If you want a game to play that will reward for skillfull play, go play starcraft or battlefield.
Animations… Is what makes quarter staff worse imo, for the defender it is kind of easy to read, while with maces/swords you can do overhands and alternate overhands that are quite tricky to read and require special blocking.
Tho… with mma mobility you will be circle stepping your opponents anyways so just my grain of salt.
But yeah, broadsword has always been the best 1 handed weapon, maybe its intentional as it seems like in the description and “lore” of the game that it is the go-to weapond…
Hes just mad a MAA facehugged him and alternated attacks from different sides and OP dint fucking turn to block.
Am I rite?
I just played duel mode as a knight with a shield (cuz I like fucking myself thesedays) I still made 12-1 and defeated the other 20-2 guy twice in a row that played MAA and he racequit… since I turn to block his close attacks and look down for stabs, and he couldent do shit.
He dint know how to bluff, don’t know how to correctly feint, don’t know how crouch counter, don’t know how to heavy kick into side stab…
Yeah sure you can grind nubs with that strat all day, but in the end, its no way overpowered.
Bearded axe, in conjunction with the lookdown overheads not being fixed, this becomes a nightmare weapon. There are literally attacks that hit so fast with lookdown overheads, that i went into duel servers and even when the guy KNEW the attack was coming to test, still missed the parry. Totally parryable yes, but only really if you know exactly when it’s coming. You can get within facehug range, aim correctly and lookdown crouch overhead for a VERY high percentage unblockable hit… no reaction speed can even touch it. It also seems to go through more parries than any other weapon, it’s totally broken and not balanced at all.
Lookdown with bearded axes, never knew, I just tried this last night for a few hours and I had 4 people call me a cheater and got kicked twice… 8-) Only played two hours…
The devs prob made a MISTAKE, when weps hit your shield it takes no stam, yet it takes more stam to block with a shield then it is to panic parry.
I am sure it will get hotfixed
Earlier today I one shot a maa with a 1 handed sword overhand, and he just spawned (I was spawn camping Dx )
Made no sense to me, maybe its a bug of sorts.
Look down overhead was has been talked about alot months and months ago.
The best agreed solution was to remove the “back swing” or “wind up” damage part of it.
If you removed the hit from the handle then what will happen is the first part that connect will connect with the defending person’s back, causing the hit to be unblockable unless you spin 180.
Or they can be like every other action fighting game and lock attack animations to the movement that when you started it… ever seen one of those spinning jumping zweihanders? lol
Its funny how I leave the game for half a year to work overseas and come back to find every mechanic changed to cater to the newbies, and dumb down pro play even more.
with the gigantic nerf on shields…
which makes feints and panic parry the new game, time to roll around with a 2 hander or bare 1 hand just like every fucking one else I know…
The idea that halberds don’t have the same struggles against other classes it ridiculous. I struggle with MAA, definitely archers and even certain knight load outs. What I don’t struggle with is noobs, ok maybe some but really, no.
Call me ridiculous but I got to rank 30 without unlocking the halberd and when I unlocked it, it was instant mastery and easily kill MAAs, 1hander and 2 hander knights, and other noob halberd users.
To my eyes It felt like any 2 hander sword (thats all round good with stab,swing,overhand) but with essentially the longest range in the game, and works even better in close combat since the guy i am hitting has to turn alot to block the overhand and side swing.
If i incorporate different swings and acceleration (not even Q), I can get hits in 80% of the time against players better then me easy, and beat them like the man I am.
