What are your general feelings on Deadliest Warrior after playing it?
So far I think it’s pretty great. I’m liking the 6 faction system in the class based LTS and 6-team deathmatch the most, but big, 2-team games are really sweet too. Obviously there are a few issues at the moment, especially with the class balancing, but I can get past that since it’s alpha/beta.
I’m noticing a little repetitiveness in the maps after about 10 hours of play, I’d really like some Objective-based maps to play rather than just deathmatching or LTS all the time.
Are there any features or systems you specifically like or dislike in Deadliest Warfare?
Like: I love the Ninjas. Ninjas are a class that can’t be played like any other, you need to rely on guerilla tactics and speed rather than brute force. Plus the Ninjas have the most interesting gear to choose from right now, a lot of utilites to go along with weapons, awesome.
I also like how the customization system is shaping up, not just in terms of what to choose from in terms of colors and armor pieces, but in terms of how it looks in the game. Each faction kinda has their own rainbow of colors in class-based LTS and it’s still not confusing (like it sometimes was in MW) because of the unique silhouettes of each team.
6 faction battles, hell yes.
Dislike: Swinging and missing! This happens to me all the time, it seems like my swings miss much more frequently in this game as opposed to MW. I’m not sure if it’s the weapons or if they tweaked the fighting system from MW or even if it’s just in my head, but I find myself missing about 2/3 of my swings. And this isn’t just non-wounds like getting blocked, 2/3 of the time my weapon hits nothing, the rest of the 1/3 of the time it’s either hitting or getting blocked.
Also some of the run animations bug when you move the mouse and I feel like the character is moving more slowly (specifically for the ninjato).
About how much time have you spent playing Medieval Warfare?
What class did you experiment with the most?
I’ve been playing Ninja the most since it seems like the most interesting to play as, but I’ve also been playing samurai for about the same amount of time since I used to play vanguard, and the sam is closest to him.
I’ve tried all the classes out, but I wasn’t really drawn to playing any of them like I was to Ninja.
How would you describe your play style in Deadliest Warrior?
Sneaky, also drug bombs.
