So far, having played yesterday and some today, I can say this game has a LOT of potential. It is incredibly fun, I love the chosen art style (some preferred the more gritty realism of Chivalry, but I like this one as it feels unique), and the skills system with the magic is fantastic!
Some changes I’d like to see:
More magic skills. I don’t know if you guys already intend to do this or not, but having skills we can unlock as we play much like in CMW we could unlock weapons by playing.
BALANCE: I already see this as a pretty big issue. Teams need to auto balance, moving players around if one team gets too small. So please add this in for the final game. Also, please nerf the big mace guy, his attacks are a little too strong. I personally find he is too hard to kill, and he kills too easily. Maybe take away some of his health or tweak his damage output.
Respawn count: This is far too long, it should be taken down by at least a few seconds, preferably more.
Movement/combat speed: I honesty feel like I’m using a knight in Chivalry, trying to wield a maul–and these characters do not look like they should feel so heavy and clunky when playing them. I don’t think it needs much tweaking, but just a little bit–I would love to see both movement speed and the speed of attacks increase.
Blocking: Bring back Chivalry’s blocking style. It’s so much better to have to be looking in the direction you are trying to block, rather than just have one base block that can stop anything in front of you! That said, being able to reflect magic is freaking AMAZING. Please keep this in!
PLEASE HAVE A DUELING MODE! I seriously miss this from Chivalry, and duels with these characters could be a lot of freaking fun. So please, put this mode back in! I’ve talked with a fair amount of people that agree with that!
Overall, I love the game so far. It is only in it’s alpha stages and is already an amazing game. I’m very pleased to have been able to test play this game, and for a roughly 30 dollar price tag, so far it’s looking like it will be well worth it. This has made me super excited for the final release of this game!
Keep it up Devs, I think you’re doing a fantastic job with this title, it’s heading in the right direction!
