Chivalry

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I have both Chivalry and WOTR, and opinions about the two are pretty strong, so I thought I'd throw a thread out where people could talk about the two in a more verbose form than global chat.

War of the Roses has it's faults for sure, and I won't discuss them because the game has been out long enough that everyone playing should know. Bottom line for me: WOTR is flawed but very playable and enjoyable.

Chivalry, in my opinion, is a letdown. I appreciate where they were going with it, but to me it feels like a melee Call of Duty. They put a lot of work into it, it works the way they want it to, but I can't get into the rhythm of the game. Nobody is doing anything but bum rushing each other and trying desparately to get the first hit in, because that almost always determines victory. Yeah the combat feels more brutal, but I think there are other ways you can make melee feel better without going to this extreme. With damage being so high and stamina so low, you don't have time to figure out your opponent and work around his tactics. Which is moot, because he doesn't have any, he's doing the same thing you are. It's just hack and slash to me.

But that is forgivable. I could have gotten past that for the extra game modes and the first person perspective. You know what really gets my goat, though? The fact that after playing a couple hours of Chiv, my coordination in WOTR is so screwed up my score is less than a quarter of what it typically is. I swear it completely jacked up my whole rhythm for WOTR.wth.gif

Saw it 5 minutes after he put it up. I don't think it accurately portrays just how spastic the combat in Chiv is. You've got lots of attack and defense options, but all I see anyone doing is spamming 1 attack type depending on their weapon.

2 handed: side-swing
1 handed blunts and axes: Overhead
1 handed swords and 1-2 handed spears: thrust.

Sooo much team-killing because no one cares that friendly fire damage is almost 100% I've been caught in 2 handed swings that wiped me and 3 other teammates out. Constantly getting shot in the back by friendly archers too. Guaranteed death.

I've played for about 3 hours (all in arena mode) so far and I haven't ran into any problems with people going wild and accidently killing me with friendly fire, thats not to say i've been hit with a one odd swing from a team mate, but never killed. From what I saw in my experience people don't use LMB attack, but thrust and overhead attack when multiple people are on target. That or they take turns with one attacking for 3-4 attacks then backing off while the other attacks while they go in behind and such.

Sounds like you found a golden server. I'd mark that one.
