RE: Considering quitting because of Archer Class
I don’t even understand WHY they added the archer class in the first place… Weren’t archers generally found in a group to perform volley shots and defend castles under siege and whatnot? Chivalry completely smashes that idea and splatters its brains on the pavement.
they wre in the orginal game? they were an absolutly MASSIVE portion of medevil combat irl? archers will never leave, theres no reason to, and im not even sure waht the hate is about. even when im playing melee i am never inconvenced by them, sure i get killed every so often, but its no worse then when im triple teamed, or get ran up on, or when im stam locked. i mean honestly, melee classes are just annoying.
im chalking this up to the same problem anyone has, they need a blame. if archers were removed it would be one of the melee classes being to cheap and continue until we have one class and one weapon, then theyd bitch theres no varity. best advice? learn to play it, learn to beat it.
not trying to be an ass, this is just the same topic games hae had for decades./
RE: Chivalry is not an FPS
i just tell people its a game you get to lop limbs off of in first person.
its an fps game though, although it may not have guns, the mechanics are exactly the same, aim in first person, clicm mouse, and area with crosshair receives damage. splitting hairs over the semantics seems silly.
RE: A little help with connecting to servers…
not working, but i suspect thats because chiv cant seem to load servers atm…
RE: Chivalry Medieval Dying
leave the deaths in, i cannot stand montage kill videos (with exceptions, such as videos specifically showing other players rage ad ludicrous levels.) dying in hte video adds suspense to the fights, you dont know what the player will walk in and out of, and in a game like chiv, it can show the diffrence between a good player and a great player who can walk to the very edge of his capcity and still walk away alive.
RE: Remove Hillside from the game.
i rarely see people fail to light the fire, but the third objective, the balisitas, are jsut always a cake walk. ive never seen masons win if it gets here its over in a minute or so. the whole third stage needs redoing, honestly though, i prefer an AoC map to replace it.
there was a map where you stormed a beach with a seige tower to get over the walls, i think we could do that somewhere. mayb eneed to storm the beach to the wall with a tower, then light the pyre to alert the main assult force, then defeat the trebs to allow them to get close enough to fire, and end it there, the current last objective doesnt feel good, and the fire lighting seems difficult enough to be a mid obj while the trebs make a fine final.
RE: The How To with Daggers?
i use peirce dagger all the time, its alot of fun. some generall tips. your swing is fast enough to swing after a weapon wind up and hit if your quick enough, you can prevent knghts from attacking with flinch.
learn to run around your enemy instead of back peddling, you can get back stabs off often in melee combat as most players dotn deal with offencive characters well.
learn other weapon ranges, knights and vanguards are easy to side step, back step the swings and run in for a quick stab.
never slash, never use anything but the thrust dagger, the other 2 slash dmg is negated by more.
RE: Im tired of your hit trading shit
hit trading is counterable by not doing it, you can force hands with movements, parry feinting and kicking. i constently beat knights with the thrust dagger while they use whatever they want, it takes 5 or so hits but they die. swings are nto set in stone timed, movements and feints change timing to be off beat, hit trading occurs when two players both willingly swing in time with each other. you can break the cycle.
RE: Parry or shield? means nothing.
yeah if you attack right as the weapons hit each other youll go into your attack instently, can be hard to get the timing at first.
RE: Pub servers to many Archers?
i started playing archer because i got tired of parying my team. now i am always top 3 in my team with score so it all works out. to many snipers though, their kd is terrible because they engage from to far and become worthless to their team
