I ran out of arrows....picked up a giant ballista arrow and threw it through a knights skull and then I was set on fire and had my arm hacked off.

Had a guy in a game last night running around with a knife who was able to effectively stunblock you by kicking you, slashing you, kick, slash, kick, slash, etc. and holy gently caress was it infuriating.
Back up and use your reach, they can only do that poo poo if they're in your face and you can beat them on the initiative game as long as you don't hold block.

I know, but most times I encountered this guy he was able to get in past my reach and overwhelm me before i had a chance to react. Once he started kicking I was basically just panic smashing kick or jab or swing to get out of it. I ran into him later and was able to keep him at bay but it's still infuriating when they get in there or you're just too slow to back up and away from them.

I think most of us probably do, yes. I haven't played with a controller but have a friend who does and honestly he seems just as good as me with the controller so it might just be personal preference at this point. Not like using 3rd person which as we know is only for yellow-bellied cowards.

I'm really hoping for themed DLCs down the line. Deadliest Warrior for Chiv 1 was hilarious, and Warhams would be a great fit as well.

Also, I'll never ever get tired of suddenly eating poo poo from ballistas and catapults

Had someone yesterday that refused to get off the catapult during the 1st stage of Lionspire and would just murder everyone, friend or foe, that was next to the battering ram. It was great watching all the bodies just fly straight up into the air

This might be a stupid question, but how do I kill people who are competent at blocking? In Mordhau, they had to time and aim their blocks, so I could mix up directions and feint and eventually they’d miss a block and get hit, but in Chiv all they have to do is look vaguely in my direction and press right click in a huge window. Can’t kick them because they’re not holding block, just tapping it. Feinting just wastes my time, because there’s no concept of “missing a block” here; they can re-block instantly even if they started an attack. Can counter them, but that doesn’t stop them blocking the counter. Usually we just block -> riposte back and forth until one of us gets bored and backs off, or somebody else shows up and third-parties one of us.

I'm using the spear, mostly, and I find feinting between the two varieties of thrust in Slash and Stab helps quite a good bit with opening up an opponent, since you have to be on the ball to correctly guess what's coming at you is a regular slash or an alt. stab or vice-verca. Since the pokes and the swing come out relatively quickly, I can pepper into the opponent and dodge around, not really having to worry about dragging since everything's more or less in a straight line, so I can get them down via attrition so I can go for the most important move: a charged stab to the head, which will basically 2-shot basically anyone.

TL;DR: The spear is a lot of fun! Give it a try! The Polehammer's fun too, but it feels different from the last beta. I don't think it's stopping on people any more?

being even slightly competent at blocking feels a little OP in the main game modes. I'm not even very good, but it's ridiculous how easy it is to block -> alt-swing with a little drag on dudes.

Vanguard Raider has been my favorite so far, my opening tactic is to throw. Either I hit and they are already badly hurt or I miss and people tend to have an instinct of charging you after a miss. They usually don't expect you to have a second primary ready and swinging back at them

Both my favorite and my least favorite thing is getting rushed down by a group of people and frantically riposting and countering and it's so good when you get one or two and such a bummer when you don't get any.

And then you do it again.

Stepping in the dead zone between two people rushing you and smacking them with one big side swing feels so good.

Suffering through using the bow to get to the javelins was 100% worth it, those things are loving hilarious when they connect. Had a few fights that were back and forth melees that I ended by just suddenly chucking it in the enemy's face.

What's the best weapon you've found for throwing so far? I like throwing my polearms, but I wonder if throwing swords and the like work as well.

Hell yeah, It was an annoying grind because archers aren't very fun, but the javelin owns. Run from one fight to the other and make pincushions out of your enemies. Or allies!

If there's something that bothers me in Chiv is just how dumb people are about objectives and picking fights. The horde will leave an objective completely empty to rush in and turn a 3v1 into a 6v1, which also sucks for the people fighting. I feel like I die to allies smacking me in the back and throwing me off almost as much as I die to enemies ganging up on me. At this point I'll actually leave a fight that started as a 1v1 when I see 3 other dudes from my team join.

These days you don't really need to convert stuff to gif anymore, since many places (including SA) support video files directly, which tend to be more efficient in terms of filesize to quality. Just upload your mp4 directly to imgur or wherever and paste the video link into your post with url tags, like so:
