RE: The warrior you would add to Deadliest warrior.
Roman legionnaire as said before. Post cohort reforms, so they have better armor than spartan, gladius stabbing sword, two pilum, option for other roman weaponry. They really deserve to be in the game more that pirates and ninja (just thieves and spies/assassins).
Huns or Mongols, although without mounted combat, could also make an appearance as a foot archer class to replace pirate. They also deserve to be in the game.
Landsknecht. Mobile class with heavy weapons like zweihander, halberd (doesn’t belong with knight class) and pike
If we are gonna have modern area “warriors” with gunpowder weapons, might as well add Green Berets or something too :P
RE: Spartans: A rational balance discussion from an experienced player
IMO its not Spartans that are the problem, its shields in general that are the problem. Spartans come out on top because:
A. They have the best shield in the game
B. They have the best way to deal with other shields (shield bash attack) that basically ignores shields if used right
You can block attacks all day, from multiple opponents with little worry when using a shield. When you run out of stamina and block, the game gives you a free dodge and some more stamina, instead of stunning you and getting a free hit on you like it used to in chivalry. Kick is very hard to land now that you have to “Hold down” F to get a proper kick going, any good player is going to either move, drop his shield, or counter attack.
Falcata is pretty powerful, but the main reason it does so much damage is because its forced into overhand attack. I prefer xiphos over falcata because of this. Much easier to fight multiple opponents. Falcata has a really weird angle of attack.
