Lol. Playing as archer in FFA is so fun. Once you start doing well people make a beeline for you as soon as they start getting pelted with arrows

No joke, my favorite part of being an archer is seeing the risks people will take to try and bring me down.

Has there been a peep about timeframe on fixing the armor display bug or just the acknowledgement it exists ?

"But I just can’t stop thinking of how much I hate the battlecry button in Chivalry 2. The fun was slowly being sucked away due to this one feature to a point that it felt better to play the game without my headset on. You can’t spam the battlecry button, but with so many players it doesn’t matter as it sounds like a never-ending stream of unnecessary screaming."

They included jokes against moms but not feminine player models at launch? That's nice

I might have missed actual launch but they definitely had them at least a few days later. They probably had them at launch too, I just didn't buy it then.

As much as I hated having to drop the classic Mason MAA voice for my Footman for her, it has been worth every second.

Now if only they'd give Agatha some actually good voice options that wasn't just the classics and imposter.

Yeah, the bar maid or whatever voice pales in comparison. Mason MAA was my go to voice. So many fond memories of chiv 1 throwing oil pots and spamming laugh/help as I ran around wildly.

Taken to spamming the evil queen chastise and laugh while still running around wildly.

The vanguard voice is really the only fun one for Agatha unfortunately

The real problem with the battlecry button is that you cant rebind it to an actually USEFUL voice command, like "laugh"

Agreed. Playing on console there's still an issue where instead of my selected emote it does the drat battlecry. I need to spam laugh after killing someone shamefully, not scream and shout about the order, or the agathians.

Yeah

Ngl that poo poo was palpable in that game

I would also like to add that Texas is currently I believe the most shameful and painful thing I can recall experiencing as a member of this country and I am deeply disturbed. I've already written to ppl in Texas like sports teams owners to try and be a voice towards applying leverage

Yeh I guess trying to get the Dallas cowboys to help was probably the stupidest idea I've ever had, I just figured that football would actually be leverage enough and now I get to live in the reality where none of that was done .


Anyway gently caress all of it and gently caress chiv2

Wow, Chivalry must've been amazing because no one has posted about it at all for like 12 days now.

Personally all of the animations look super janky and disconnected in Chivalry 2 on all the videos I watch on youtube. The new Mordhau patch is pretty good but this game has gotten to the point where if you're fighting furries online you're probably better off going to another server because they're all infamously good for some reason

I liked Chivalry 2 a lot but Oceanic servers and matchmaking kept getting horrendously broken week after week after week. The playerbase here is completely gone (and matchmaking/servers are still broken). Shame.

Well for some reason the Chivalry 2 thread is called "Medieval Combat Sims" in honor of some games no one plays so that probably kills some traffic. Matchmaking was completely busted off and on the past few weeks with servers just not adding new people after starting up so that really threw some cold water on the game too. I think this is (mostly??) fixed now.

Chivalry 2 has definitely had a combination of bad luck (e.g. their publisher's CEO revealing himself as a regressive toad and getting cancelled after drawing bad press) and own goals (balance issues, bugs, server problems, Epic exclusivity, etc).

Don't think the thread title has very much to do with traffic, since people were were already in the thread and talking about it aren't posting either.

Imagined posted:

own goals

this is the thing that's loving it up imo. Initial hype was severely tempered by the party bug that made it a huge pain to play with your friends/made it impossible to play cross-play (one of the game's big selling features), which lasted for months. Launching as an Epic exclusive, for a whole-rear end year, also didn't help player retention since far less people are going to be playing it in the first place; the fact that Epic is missing a lot of the QoL and Social features that Steam has, like being able to join friends mid-game from the friends like that could have circumvented the party issue, didn't help.

Frequent and various server issues, like the aforementioned poor stability for Oceanic players killing an entire region's scene, and weird bone-headed decisions like announcing that a weapon is straight up broken (the short spear) and that it's going to be removed until they can fix it, and then not removing it for like a whole month, are cooling off a lot of players as well.

The minute-to-minute gameplay is fine and the game is real fun but for a lot of people it's more hassle than it's worth to get invested in.

They just need to get their poo poo together with the servers asap. Like, I can't join a server with more than 40 people in it. its usually more like 30.

I enjoyed the game for a bit on the Xbox Series X but itís pretty much died a death on there due to all of the problems already mentioned and I doubt Iíll bother going back to it, plenty of other games to play.

Booted up Mordhau. For all its faults, that game gave you so many ways to troll people. Slipping into enemy spawns to hijack their ballistas, being a professional horselord on Crossroads, and generally being annoying is fun and easy in that game in a way that few others can match.
