There should be a massive penalty and no advantage at all to any attack that takes place while staring at the ground or sky and not watching your opponent. The whole exploit (beyond 0 release overheads) makes the game feel gimicky and ruins the feel of fights, there’s nothing fun about fighting someone staring at the tips of your shoes and spamming LMB while trying to hug you, and nothing fun about getting insta-gibed by overheads with no/almost no wind up time.

RE: Bardiche overhead broken completely
I’ve had a few instances where enemy players tried to votekick me because I was doing the best in the match, it’s sadly not uncommon especially in FFA it seems.
Nothing you can really do about it though. Votekick is a necessary mechanic and removing it would cause just as many problems as it’s abuse does.
RE: LTS as a Competitive Mode is Flawed.
The biggest flaw is simply the fact that it’s boring as hell, to watch and to play. Die once and your done, now watch everyone tepidly walk around cowering in corners.
I’ve played a lot of elimination style team games, I’ve sunk hours into Mech Warrior Online since closed beta, I enjoy those types of games when they are made for it. This game just does not fit with a one-life-per-round style, TTK is way to low, there are way to many balance issues, and frankly spectating is just… it’s more exciting to watch digital paint dry then it is to watch an LTS match.
The first time I ran across the game mode I couldn’t help but boggle as to what dev thought it was a good idea. It’s either a zerg over in seconds, or two teams cowering in corners afraid to engage. Poorly thought out.
RE: Destructable catapults
Seen it get destroyed, respawned instantly afterwards. It was as though nothing had happened at all.
It’s just odd, they went through all the trouble of modeling the broken catapult, adding sound effects, animating it and then put it on a respawn timer so fast that it negates the whole point of the endeavor.
Out of simple curiosity, what is the point behind this mechanic? I’ve noticed that if you smack a catapult a couple times it will fall apart, awesome in theory - but the thing respawns good as new within 30 seconds it seems like. Needless to say that makes breaking it in the first place virtually meaningless. Is this just a feature that has not been fully implemented yet, a bug?
RE: Endangered species!
We have seen dozens upon dozens of posts like this. It is part of the game that you have to deal with, and honestly, lmb spammers aren’t that hard to deal with, just simply parry until you have a chance to attack, then repeat.
They just need to remove or limit the LMB spam combo for one handers, especially the faster ones.
RE: Votekick Abuse
I was vote kicked twice today because I was winning FFA, both times in the last 30 seconds on two different servers a vote kick started to remove me. Ultimate display of sore losership in my opinion.
RE: No archer FFA
A lot of people may be taking my OP the wrong way. I’m not saying Archers shouldn’t play FFA, nor that they should be banned. I just think it would be fun to join a melee-only server every now and then for the same reason Duel-only FFA servers exist, sometimes it’s fun fighting with a different set of rules.
No archer FFA
I don’t have any issues with archers, aiming takes effort and (while I think it’s a bit bull that daggers and fists can stun lock/parry large weapons… meh) takes work to not be a free kill. Having said that, I really really really want an FFA mode (or server) that blocks them from being used.
An archer is almost never going to win FFA (I’ve never even seen one get close) so really all they do is annoy and frustrate the people in the melee dance. I can’t count the number of times I’ve taken an arrow or javlin out of nowhere.
Again, archers are not overpowered - I’m not saying that. I just wish I could play a FFA game without them.
Side note, I also wish we didn’t absolutely have to play every map in the list for FFA. I’d love to just do Arena some times.
RE: How to Dominate Free for All In Four Simple Steps
Going into FFA games and seeing a vanguard use overhead attacks is like seeing Bigfoot.
Everyone just runs around mashing lmb. Real annoying (especially while I use fists).
Another tip that wasn’t mentioned: Change all your keybinds to horizontal slash that way you can just faceroll and still win.
I use the third spear and almost exclusively overhead (which is a thrust you need to aim with that weapon). I do really quite well.
