You absolutely can still 1v3 newbies in Chiv 2. It's extremely possible to chump lots of people at once if they're playing badly - third person gives you a much better range of information, and make sure to keep moving.

YEAH!

Yeah, but I'm talking chamber>morph>feinting level 10 people who are forced to read my move instead of having the safe option to keep swinging. "Gambling" was a thing but even newbies rarely tried it. Target swapping on riposte was almost a guaranteed hit most of the time.

In Chiv 2 you have to think more about how to abuse your weapon speed/length to get extra blows in vs just trying to fool them into parrying. People can kind of do whatever after getting parried so you can't stay safe unless you have a way to back away fast or just hit someone outright. Definitely room for 1vX but it's a lot harder to pull off when people really get on top of you. You have to work more with teammates to stay safe in my experience.

Then again, block breakers are much more usable now as well. Kicks come out decently quick and guarantee a free hit if they connect against a block, so there's still value to baiting out a premature block. Of course that's can be countered by a, well, counter, but that can in turn be defeated with morphs.

Another thing I haven't yet experimented with too much is involving heavy and special attacks more. Apart from loving with the timing a bit, they do seem to drain quite a lot of stamina if blocked, so you may be able to legitimately work towards draining the stamina of a particularly defensive player in short order.

Which class/subclass gets the shovel? Having trouble on google finding it.

Yeah its the third class for the footman. The shovel goes BONK when you smack someone with it. I don't know why but its the weapon that clicked the most for me.

I feel like the maps need some rebalancing. I played the beta a decent amount and very rarely saw dark forest get to the final objective. And it was also kinda rare to see agatha win on coxwell. I dunno if its just because of people not going for objectives or whatever though. Rudhelm seemed fine.

The game on the whole feels slightly Mason favored, especially both Protection maps. The Duke has no safe position to be in and can be overwhelmed quickly, while the Heir has a corner to hide in safe from arrows and is difficult to get to.

I don't feel bad about this because Mason rules. gently caress the Agathans

No just little kids posting lame trash talk and slurs at this point. That will probably get a little bit better once it's no longer free... or maybe not.

Realistically, it should be one or the other, that there's both modes is a real bad idea from a balance standpoint since one is strictly way better for everything except duels.

I suppose from a certain point of view, wanting to more easily avoid smashing your teammates in the back of the head with wide swings would be the sort of thing a 1st person purist duelist would loathe people having.

Technically cowardice just not the kind usually focused on.

hopefully they have a server toggle that will lock you to 1st person, cuz that could be a fun alternative

one of the bigger issues these games had that prevented me from playing third-person (besides not being a weenie) is that the third person animations kind of looked like poo poo with the camera following so close behind you. Chiv 2's animations seem to be much better but I'm still sticking with first person lol

Servers are (sorta) up!

Seems like most people can't log in, and once you are the matchmaking is not working.

Managed to play a single game in the new Arena map but I haven't been able to do anything else after it. I'm sure it'll be playable in a bit, I'm just happy it's finally released

Double edit: Offline practice lets you play vs bots if you're desperate to chop heads.

Are unlocks supposed to carry over from the beta? I notice my customization is there but I'm lvl 1 and don't have any unlocks. I'm assuming this is due to server shenanigans?

Edit: Aw it looks like back to level 1. oh well.

They should just get rid of third person completely, or have it be a special game mode only for people who want it. That's kinda BS. It's a better game in first person anyways.

That does explain how a lot of the people i played against seemed to know everything that was going on around while I was kinda struggling to even keep someone in front of me

Anybody else run into the bug where the armoury is marked with a notification indicating that there's something new, but there's nothing there and the notification never goes away? I've got that for all classes on all factions, and got no idea how to fix it. I tried swapping heads/gender as well to check whether it's about voices or facial hair, but no luck there either.

It looks like it just transferred over the appearances that you customized on each class, no exp or levels or unlocked weapons or anything.

I haven't seen this, but I have had it where, when trying to customize a class, a previous one steps up and into the current one so both models are interlaced with each other and you can't see what you're doing, really.

oh 100%

1000% when I play with a controller.

speaking of which, I downloaded this on PS4 back in the beta and I was extremely surprised how well it played and ran on console, the controls feel really good on a controller. I hope this really takes off for Torn Banner and becomes a big hit.
