I don’t ever use 3rd person but I don’t really feel it’s enough of an advantage to remove the option all together. Let server admins and leagues decide for themselves.

RE: Looking for good players
I think right now there’s so many players and full servers that people are just getting onto whatever they can for the most part. LTS is probably the best game mode to polish your skills up once you get the hang of the game. The players play a lot more cautiously and so will you if you have to wait between spawns.
RE: Newbie Questions
1.) console (~)
type “setname yourname”
2.) press X to shout or z for more specific commands
3.) And don’t think you can for catapults.
For 2) i know the key for mobile battlecry, normal battlecry & comms menu(tact msg 1, tact msg 2, personal 1, personal 2). Am i still missing any others? I cant seem to find the way to those specific yells which i mentioned, do u have to be of a certain class?
new Qn 4) is there a leaderboard or kill/death/other stats tracking (like accuracy etc) going on at this moment?
The specific yells like “Kill the king” or “Stop the wagon!” is under tactical msg 1, item 5 I believe. The menu item is called “Go for Objective” or something like that. Basically you can spam that as you charge the peasants in Stoneshill and you will scream “BBBUUURNNNN THE PEASANTS, BUUURRNNN THEM ALL!!!” which I love to do and love it when there’s others screaming the same thing beside me. That command will yell out objective specific comments, and change as the objective does.
RE: Buy from Steam or direct
If you order the game directly on this site you will be given a code to use in Steam and download. This makes most if not all proceeds go to Torn Banner, rather than the large cut Steam would take from the sale.
RE: I need this answered - Rant/(MAYBE) bug info
I agree that we don’t need to have a negative tone when helping folks out.
1)Ballista Arms - I’ve had this happen to me once on Battlegrounds, and I’ve used the ballistas on all the levels many many times. Once you die the bug is gone so it’s not really a game breaker by any stretch.
Shields are not broken - you need to point your shield at the weapon tip as it approaches you, not just facing your enemy. You also need to hold the shield down, not tap the button like a normal parry with a weapon. Also, when you’re shield bashing with shove, attacks will go through your shield since you’re not blocking.
It depends on the javelin being used against you, there are three types and the heaviest one does the most damage.
What I think is you need practice. The new players haven’t figured out the nuances and I’m constantly side stepping people’s shields and hitting them while they block. They don’t realize when I’m up close and swinging a weapon that my arm is wrapping around their shield.
RE: Unable to connect to any server
I’m also having this issue. I did have a nearly identical issue during the beta shortly after the 2nd or 3rd last patch. Occasionally I seem to be unable to join servers for extended periods of time. Usually if I just keep trying random servers one will let me in, but most of the time it will hang for a while and give me the failed connection confirmation, or if I click on another server to join before seeing the message it immediately gives me that message. It doesn’t seem to matter whether I’m connecting to a server or joining a friend or multiple friends already on a server, doesn’t matter if the server is 3 or 4 players or nearly full, and server refreshes usually show others filling up those servers so it’s not just the server.
RE: Glitch in the game?
The unlocks usually come back in a bit. Try again later and hopefully it wasn’t some sort of server crash that didn’t log your kills.
Dammit, Steam has been crashing occasionally the last couple of days. Not usually for more than a minute or two. Oh there it is!
Congrats on 2nd top seller spot!
You guys are in second place for sales today on steam, sandwiched between XCom and Borderlands 2. I’m very happy for you guys! Congratulations!
