@Andean you do have an active parry during the riposte windup though.
What really? I havent notice this one single time
Loin, in vanilla this is what you do against vanguards: whatever he does, stab with SoW. You need 2 trades, its very easy tbh. If he parries something, stab feint his ass.
If you rather play messer, do the same thing but with slashes. Its actually very hard to play vanguard in a pub with 24+ players. Archers will hit you, then one hit trade and you are dead. Not to mention team damage, charge attacks and firepots. Vanguards use big scary weapons, people target them quite often tbh due potential damage he can do.
If the vanguard is having gud teamplay with a knight, maa or another vanguard even, and using something like zwei/spear/halberd/brandi/polehammer, then you might die quite fast, although you can hit trade easily and if the van has low health, he’s ded. But tell me, when do you see something like this in pubs? Especially FFA, everyone just runs around like crazy spamming lmb. Just gamble your way to victory with SoW or messer against them.
Now in mercs mod, where you can’t hit trade so much and have to parry shit and range actually means something, fighting a gud halberd or a zwei is quite hard. Vanguard weapons allows to control the fight better, as range gives you initiative. But this is mercs, we are talking about vanilla, and all this doesn’t really apply because its hit trading paradise, vanguards not so strong tbh. Hit trading doesn’t allow it.
Holy shit sounds great man! Hey, idk if you played, but Command e Conquer: Tiberian Sun sort of have a middle eastern vibe in some tracks, plus a great guerrilla feeling, take a look tbh
This one here, especially at 1:29
Maybe its too futuristic, but perhaps has fitting elements, idk!
Hey man, what you did in Chivalry was amazing, 10/10 I can’t find anything wrong in it tbh, excelent work imo the musics, sound effects and voice acting. I’m sure Mirage will have amazing sound effects and music as well.
Fuck I need to buy a new computer, I don’t want to go full quake 2 on mirage’s graphics like I did with chiv. Game is looking good and probably will sound even better imo
I don’t know if you guys like it, I really enjoy this rapper guy. Name is Sabotage, really good lyrics, man is really intelligent tbh. I like his videoclips as well
I’m surprised that these words are in a TB Developers vocabulary. Xbox One Chiv hasn’t seen a single content update since release day or 2014 for that matter. I don’t care if you blame Activision or Hard suit labs it’s your game your responsibility and we see your lack of care by who you give the “keys” of your game to when it comes to console. This is why your studio will fail.
I don’t think they will fail tbh. In the end of the day, they did release a awesome game that had good sells numbers, they made a solid playerbase with very dedicated people even on consoles where the game is obviously a cashgrab, and thats because their product has a very very solid quality overall.
Their next game will for sure be fun and at least as competitive as Medieval Warfare, and that is what will matter. They will only fail if their next game is utter shit beyond belief, which will obviously not happen.
I understand your point, its really fucked up this cashgrab thing but you see, I don’t blame Torn Banner for it, gaming market is fucking cancer and you gotta be cancer as well if you wish to stay competitive as a company. This lack of commitment with C:MW is more a market/money/economics pressure, not the devs will, in my opinion. I bet that if money wasn’t the main thing in our lives, they could be still working on CMW, but money pressures them to make a new project to get more money to keep the company running and people employed.
I mean, is a very nice, charismatic game with revolutionary mechanics, if it was my project, I would make love with it and improve it the best I could, unless I had other factors forcing me not to. What I want to say is, Torn Banner has great devs but it still under Capitalism rules, that makes them look like cancer but its not the devs who are cancer, its capitalism! So we have this cashgrab bullshit, no b0lonce bullshit, dlc bullshit etc.
This whole gaming industry is a big cancer tbh, look at what it does to games. Good games are a exception in these dark times. And even the good indie games suffers because this cancer has AoE damage it seems.
Holy fuck I feel my English is terrible, I promise to stop these bad written walls of text.
Order has been restored by mr V tbh. I might go dig out some rat pack movies with frank and dean .
Yes its laughable to the point of tears that anybody could actually like the sound of his wailing walrus harpie singing.
Try some real talent tbh The Wanderer…
Nope, I’m usually a support guy. I go with knights and Maa’s and help them out using a halberd, spear, maybe zweihander. On team objectves my focus is teamplay tbh, I need to get those Knights to the objective alive, and fuck with everyone that tryies to fuck with them.
I care about this you are saying when I’m on suicide missions or trying my luck in 1vN scenarios. If I see I’m going to get rekt, I try to take the best player with me, or at least leave him severely wounded.
OP, GM is a very good weapon, especially against knights, specifically SoW gamblers. Has better timing then maul, that means you aren’t forced so much in defensive and you can gamble better as well.
Use the stab, that is fucking fast. Use it a lot in ripostes, then instead of riposting, you delay a alt overhead. But you gotta make it look like you are actually riposting, so get your timings right and alt overhead as soon as the “riposte window” ends. This confuses a shitload of people and is a VERY viable tactic, especially with vanguard polearms and that beautiful alt overhead it has, that attack is GREAT to delay lmao, really funny tbh.
Backswings are quite fast as well, the trick with this weapon is, it got some fast attacks and some pretty good delay as well, make your opponent get used to the fast attacks, then throw delayed ones. Slashes are also pretty good, delayed and accelerated. Since it has maul animations, you can hide what you are doing quite well. For example, some people look up to delay the overhead even before the windup, its fucking obvious what they are trying to do, so don’t do that. The animations favor subtle drags, you know the “foot drag”, where you delay the overhead and hit your opponent in the foot? The one where instead of looking up to delay, you turn to the side, away from your opponent, then at the end of the animation you bring back to his feet. Thats a good attack with Gmace.
You are only going to have problems against Polearms Vanguards, GOOD halberdiers are your worse nightmare, spear as well. But in general its a great weapon, really good and fun to use. Its like a b0lonced maul that its not on broken levels of OP, practice a lot with it and you will see how EZ it is to play maul.
Charge attack is only fun to fuck with archers. In this moment they are a glorious mechanic, other situations its pure cancer. Some people do a very good delayed sword charge attack that I find hard as fuck to read sometimes lmao
TY man. If this game was just stamina wars and hittrades to win I would have left this game a long time ago.
If people didn’t despise feints so much on PC I doubt alternate methods to get around parries would even be used in the first place tbh. personally I’d rather be killed by a waterfall foot drag than fall for a feint any day.
Point is, same way some feints are flawed and can’t be properly dealt with, some drags can’t be properly deffended from. Halberd fake-out backswings for example are quite broken. I guess we can all agree that drags and feints are good idea, and this mechanic in general is a great idea, but the game itself has a lot of problems balance wise (especially vanilla game without mercs mod).
These tricks does requires some skill, but they break the game anyways imo. Its not good gameplay as I see it, when you master the big b0ckswing techniques, some kills even feel cheap tbh. Thats why people gamble so much look at the tools we have, its fucking Las Vegas!
B0ckswing gamble paradise.
