Chivalry: Medieval Warfare - Page 2

post #11 of 19
great game and all but it pisses me off with the bad combat dynamics. lag is also a big factor in this game. why would the speed of a dagger swing take as long as a long sword? and some times it takes 3 pushes of a button to switch weapons?

Nothing can beat cRPG on M&B, I kinda had high hopes for this game.

Pretty much this.

I use the fastest Class with a short sword and yet the Vanguard manages to swing his huge sword/ Stick thingy faster than i can. The game can be fun but for the moment the lag and uneven character classes ruin it. All the high scoring players use the vanguard.

I prefer WOTR and Warband for 3 reasons.

Combat mechanics in Chiv give you no choice but to bum-rush. You only have a few swings, blocks, or combination of both before you run out of stamina and are easy meat. First person to get a hit in almost always wins the fight. Almost always being about 95%.

As mentioned, even though it has different game modes, they're nothing special. It's all different variations on basic game modes such as running an object to an objective, killing npc's, holding an area for a certain period of time, etc... In the end you're still rushing to where the fight is and clicking spastically, hoping to get a hit in.

Chiv's combat animations also work as timers for a delay between your click and your attack, which is nice because it allows you to feint, but it also makes combat really clumsy in a lot of situations. I think people understand it a little better now, but when it first released about 1 in 3 of my deaths were from team-members. There is also a huge amount of potential for griefing. One of my teammates got tired of the noobs team-killing him, so he released a rockslide that wiped out half of our team. There's nothing stopping that from being used against your own team every time, along with many other environmental traps.

Just heard from the friend about this game and oh boy it's fun game to play!
Game is something new and refreshing besides standard fps - shooter. With that 22e price tag it's definitely worth it.

I filmed some video from last evening biggrin.gif

Hmm.. can't get the video working, so here is the link

Chivalry is on sale on steam right now for $16.74!

I've gotten quite a few hours out of this game already. I am not a fps player nor do I generally play these kinds of games but I find it is loads of fun and something to hop in and play for a half hour-hour and not need to take seriously. A good change from Starcraft 2. Highly recommended.

Its got a 50% discount on Steam right now for a day or two.I bought it yesterday with the 33% discount and have been addicted to the game.At $12 roughly it is a steal.They just released a really big patch and released a Q and A video just recently discussing their plans for future bug fixing and upcoming free content.

Here is the video:

Bought this game from the sale on steam and absolutely love it! Yeah the animations are a little wonky and the classes are not all equal but it's hella-fun.

Bought a pack for me and my buddies, I got a copy and 4 in my inventory for like $18.

I am so confused but having a ton of fun!
