@wilt said in Is CMW dead?:
Did you say good chivalry players , meaning the tryhards of old running about at stupid high fovs in out combat dancing with roh spam and other scripted combat. There are very very few chivalry good players that don’t use such stuff at all
let alone roh or abuse fovs. Do you really believe they will waste time playing or buying mordhau that is even more absurd .
Its complicated to define a good chivalry player. I would say a good chivalry player is someone that knows what hes doing, Chivalry is a game that requires a calm mind as well fast reflexes to play on much higher levels of skill.
(Calm mind to be able to read feints and parry slower attacks (Drags) fast reflexes to parry faster attacks suchs as reverse attacks or handle hits)
A good chivalry player would have no trouble dealing with a dancer that spams reverse attacks (Consistantly playing the same style becomes predictable)
The things you mention are balanced believe it or not. Having lets say high fov suchs as 160 fov has its pros and cons, Pro being more vision (Good for 1 v X) And a con feints become much harder to read. Most of these “Tryhards” play around 140 ~ 150 fov.
Reverse attacks are good but only if somone is facehugging and when you do them rarely, If its get parried you can easely make them panic since well they cant see you, Having a little distance will also result in misses (Rip stamnia) all and all its not a good mechanic to use and thats why you also dont see them being used often by the better players.
Its not a matter if i believe it or not, They will waste time playing mordhau, Most will and some already have.
As for quote being good at by a good chivalry player that is rubbish also. Any hard core chivalry veteran excluding the generically weak ones described above will off course be excellent at mordhau against any other new player who buys it .
I already said it indeed helps it will take a good Chivalry player less time to play Mordhau on a okay level however it will still take quite some time to become a good player, I have played mordhau i know this out of experiance while being good at Chivalry im by no means good at Mordhau but admitedly it wont take 1000 hours to reach the same kind of level in Mordhau as i have in Chivalry.
Regarding new players the same goose for Chivalry now, There are many players with well over 3k hours this is a issue that will always exist, Me and i know many other “Tryhards” Will help new players to master at the very least the basics.
as for adjusting to combat a chivalry veteran needs none. If your waffling on about a good chivalry player running into a mordhau tryhard of many I have seen already in various mordhau streams or videos then what do you expect as those
plebians have already got 200 plus hours head start in mordhau even more. The ethos of good stocked veterans of quality
such as myself won’t even buy or want mordhau at all as it has the same flaws already, 1 tryhard culture but from day one of purchase, 2 fov variences 3 third person and 4 op archers or ranged rubbish.
I"ll wait until my own fps medieval game comes out as that will be of the highest AAA quality and class with no such
pander to weak sub standard g eneric easy win fights wanted generations of acidic tryhards both games have atm.
I dont know if you played mordhau but it seems not, Once you played it you will understand that there is alot changes in my view most notably the speed mordhau is quite slow phased compared to Chivalry (More preditable and footwork is significantly slower).
Some people have much more then just 200 hours spend in mordhau as we speak, Though the game hours do not = Skill, Just as in chiv you have players with 7k hours yet some duelist that has only 800 hours would dominate over the one with 7k hours.
You are not a veteran player, You may have spend alot of time in chiv but this wont make you a veteran (A soldier that has been cleaning toilets for 15 years isnt a veteran ether a soldier thats in the army for 5 years and gone to war is a veteran).
Most veterans of Chivalry will if they already hanvt buy mordhau.
Though i agree with you in someway, The onces i call “Tryhards” are those that actualy try and fail resulting in very toxic behavior we have seen them in Chivalry and will see them again in Mordhau im not a huge fan of that ether.
I love Chivalry its a gem i hope TBS will give us a new title in the future something similar to what Chivalry Medieval Warfare is (Heck if you ask me they can just remake the game add some inprovements and ill buy it, Pretty sure many would).
However thats not the case, As we speak Chivalry is a very old game the player base has shrinked alot and will continue todo so and i think its quite likely that it will die out once mordhau comes out.
