Don't worry, wooden walls (and spikes) seem to self destruct after a certain amount of time. Boy is that always a rude surprise for the defenders :v:

I think its only when the player who placed it changes classes, then they despawn instantly.

If you find a chicken, hold it over a brazer (the map ones work, too). Once chicken is on fire, jab people and they will be on fire. Do not throw chicken, that's just rude.

Nah it is both (or building new stuff).

I've seen it happen when I've been on a long stretch of staying alive as an engineer, or anybody with wood spikes. Eventually they seem to just spontaneously combust while I'm just standing there with nobody around to be smashing them. Extra rude with the spikes because those have balsa wood HP compared to mordhau and you can't reload them. So wood spikes lasting for any length of time including not having teammates deliberately break them when they are pointed at an enemy ladder or ramp exit is a miracle in the first place.

As hilarious as it would be if the game was getting confused and destroying them when someone else changes classes or builds new things, I'm betting some kind of time limit.

Does the shield-banging with the warcry button only happen in certain views or with certain classes? I tried with the MAA and skirmisher and couldn't make it work, both first-person.

E: vvvv well that explains that.

Never actually tried in first person, but you do have to be standing still when you press the battle cry key

The Dane axe is super fun to use and to throw. Want a rail gun? Throw your dane axe. It's probably my favorite weapon.

:lol: this is both effective and hilarious, people don't expect it so it's very easy to aim when they're charging straight at you, if they're already injured then you have a good chance of killing them outright.

Recently I've seen so much smaller teams on 40person games. Like, 3 v 2 in terms of real people vs bots. Am I just getting unlucky on a very small sample size or is it really that limited in terms of playerbase? Just now included, so not just daylight games.

Anecdotally I've seen the same. I find it hard to believe that the game is dead already. I assume there's some matchmaking/server issues at play. I'm on console, so there's no server browser at all though. On the plus side, the bot heavy games might get me up to the 50 kills in a match trophy cuz I suck against regular players

Glad its not me. On the other hand, probably should have let a game go on further than I did since I just got 41, which is definitely my peak.

I haven't unlocked it yet, so can someone tell me why the dane axe specifically is so good for throwing? Does it just do a lot of damage? Does it fly straighter/faster/etc than other things?

Yes it does a ton of damage. Yes it seems to be a reliable arc and even if you don't land a headshot it is good damage. Also Vanguard can throw and auto-switch to another primary (which can be ANOTHER dane axe!) about as fast as a dedicated throwing weapon.

For example. If you throw a javelin at a vanguard's chest, it barely edges into exaggeration to say they can throw two dane axes in retaliation while you are still locked in your defenseless T pose cooldown for throwing a javelin. But those seem to have a notably long vulnerability window compared to throwing axes, knives, and mallets anyways.

Which goes from pathetic to incredibly hilarious if I'M the one throwing dane axes at skirmishers.

It is definitely easier to hit with than javelins and you switch to a weapon faster than a skirmisher pulls out another javelin. It's pretty silly. And great.

Oh. I was pleasantly surprised to see it was still available last night. I am so much better with spears that it's not even funny. They have completely broken my ability to use any other weapon. Even the two-hander is strong. Guess I'm going back to TKing people with medic packs.

Just stab people with another stabby weapon like the long/short/sword. They're easier to use when fighting off groups too imo since the swings don't stop on hit

While the usual attention on swing to win is the Vanguard with a big sword, you can also try your luck with the initial Footman subclass, Poleman if you just want to get used to angry yelling war zones.

They start with a Halberd (with a bardiche model and you need to unlock the halberd cosmetic because?) which will let you waddle into a team fight and poke or overhand smash enemies casually fending off a 1vX real good. in particular as special attack swings stagger people for a moment when blocked.

Looking back at the equip screens, seems like the initial unlocked stuff for the Vanguard is a Battle Axe (which has an absurdly strong special attack if the Vanguard is using it), and the initial knight subclass is doubled up on swords with the Longsword and "Sword". All good weapons, and the Knight "Double swords" is more user friendly speed wise for trying to out duel someone. They are just a bit more finicky for trying to shoulder your way through a crowd getting your own hits in.

Oh, right. Offline Bots match is counter intuitive not because bots are stupid. But because bots seem to have reduced hitpoints so even the Archer can survive stuff that would one shot them.

I love bots, the game would be less fun without them! They need some AI tweaks, like when they get stuck carrying ladders after the bridge in Lionspire, but I hope they keep them as dumb as they are right now.

I just went with archer for a few games because it was fun in TF2 :D

The hitboxes are very unforgiving, aren't they, and the tracking is not easy either. That said, I did go something like 20-1 in one game (that long tournament joust looking arena) so that was good. Going to take some used to swinging a sword/whathaveyou around.

Bots always knew the prison wagon's needed to be defended on all sides, so I wonder what other unintuitive secrets they are guarding between the idiocy :tinfoil:
