His is why fans aren’t devs. Its a good thing that they don listen to us most of the time as if they did the game will be ruined and you would still be complaining as well as everybody else. And torn banner would get blamed for listening to you.
No sarcasm in there I assure you.
Whoa. It’s a perfectly reasonable question, Captain Wanker. No need for your petty remarks.
After a long nap, we actually extensively tested this in the build before release, and unanimously found that the game was not nearly as fun when attacks played out like this.
Well, why? Sure, it’s not a big deal in a duel server because nobody else is around to feel your wrath, but what about it made the game less enjoyable? In my opinion, the current build allows us to seemingly cut through armor like it’s butter making it easy for RMB spammers to tk everyone in the vicinity. I’ve completely given up “tanking” on pub servers because of how awful the experience is. If weapons would ‘rebound’ or responded like they do when hitting inanimate objects there wouldn’t be as much spamming. Also, adding to the feeling of actually ‘chopping’ someone down. There seems to be a lot of “selective realism” in some areas, and lack of realism in others. I’m not even going to get started or throw out any examples because it seems the fanboys are already making an appearance.
IMO it should go like this…
LMB : Left horizontal swing! Whoa! Doesn’t that make sense?
RMB: Right horizontal swing! Whoa! Again, I might be onto something here!
anything else: block
Your weapon responds realistically! Of course MAA wear little armor, so they will be sliced in half as they should be along with the gnats or archers as some of you may call them.
I have some questions about the viability of crouching.
1. Is it possible to crouch under horizontal swings?
Another tip for crouching if you don’t want to risk looking away from your opponent in a fight: stop moving when you duck. If you crouch while moving your character only really drops like 6 inches (making it really only work if they’re aimed at your head), if you crouch while stationary he drops at LEAST double if not more (making it viable if they’re swinging at anything from your nips up). lol @ nips.
For reference go stand next to something with marks on it or someone and change to 3rd person. Duck while moving to see how low you get compared to what/who you’re next to, then duck while stationary to see how much lower you go.
Makes sense I guess, but should take some practice for me. I’m not sure how comfortable I feel about bending over and exposing the back of my neck to enemies though…
