Phwew. This is one heck of a post! I feel most people who wanted to respond to your post probably aren’t even sure where to begin.
Let me start by saying this: Chill. Many people are playing this game and love it. There are certainly some balance issues and that’s to be expected with a game that has only been out for a few days. Give the developers time, they have statistics and such that will help them make the right balance decisions.
Alrighty. Moving on.
Many of your gripes seem to be about “javelins too weak, warbows too strong, i’m a knight, archers shouldnt be two shotting me, etc. etc.” As I said earlier, these are potential balance issues that may already be in the process of being looked at. However, in the mean time, try to look around online for tips, strategy guides/videos, etc. Example, the player Boogeyman made a fairly informative youtube video about playing spear vanguard.
If you are getting beaten consistently by the same tactic or enemy, change your tactics! Analyze the situation, see if you can figure out why this other tactic is beating you, and adjust to compensate. I can give you a personal example, i play a lot of poleaxe vanguard, and the jumpy men-at-arms who get under my guard with swords or axes give me a LOT of trouble. Like, I die instantly trouble. However, I’ve looked at my play recently, and I’ve learned now that probably the best tactic is to swap to my secondary weapon, the poleaxe is too heavy and slow to fight off someone under your guard.
Archers will kill you. They kill a lot of people. That’s part of being a glass cannon class, once you engage them in melee, unless they are VERY practiced at fighting close quarters, most people will rip them to shreds. If they continue to cause issues, consider using a class with a shield, it will TREMENDOUSLY increase your survivability against arrows. Shields block arrows even when not raised in a block position.
Give the game time, it’s an addictively fun game once you get the hang of it! Keep playing, you’ll improve :)
P.S. Get a decent internet. If you’re ping is any higher than like 150ms, you are going to have SERIOUS issues with every class and weapon.
