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.

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 :allears:

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

Loving the shovel, there's just something magic and it has a great bonk.

I threw my shield, weapon, and secondary weapon at an archer standing on a platform, didn't kill him but hit him, climbed up to the platform and punched him to death. i got my sword back but coudlnt find my shield for some reason and ended up dual wielding with a pumpkin for a super long line of fights. It is a good game

the biggest thing I like over mordhau is that there's just less down time between chopping heads. remembering all the time spent running somewhere and only finding one enemy there etc. in mordhau.

occasionally it doesn't work perfectly - killing the heir is kind of a bitch with reinforcements instant joining the battle, but it's way better than the alternative

That last stage is hilarious, just EVERYONE is on fire and you just gotta KEEP SWINGING

Spear is great for someone like me who has shite awareness, if I'm only poking I don't need to keep dragging my FOV and have more of a shot at knowing wtf is going on around me. Also how the heck at people doing "heavy" thrusts/vert attacks? rebinding it to something other than mwheel?

Try using the basic knight longsword if you wanted to branch out a little bit. Throw all your knives and your secondary and then start poking away. Its pretty easy to use.

A round also shouldn't end on certain objectives if the team completing it is actively being increasing it. Like pushing the battering ram on lionspire.

Apparently the bad rubber banding/lag that can happen only occurs if you use the server browser and not the matchmaking. At least according to their ticket on trello.

Also, new map preview!

Side note, I love the maps where you have to kill/defend a VIP at the end, it's basically a wildcard round and can go either way which is a fun way to end a long match.

People get so mad if the Duke/Heir doesn't sit in the corner like they're "supposed" to. Had one guy that ended up dying as Duke and people started whining, and he was just like "I'm the Duke, I can play how I want" and I gotta say :hmmyes:

I don't generally like calling for nerfs in a game, especially before the dust has even settled from release, and therefore I hate myself for this, but I hope they nerf the Messer into the ground and salt the earth where it is buried. I hope everyone who "mains Messer" gets forced to wear a skin with a giant "M" emblazoned on it so we can all recognize who the shitters are for all time. I hope archers forevermore respond to insults with, "Oh yeah? Well at least I don't use a Messer!"

My greatest joy in this game murdering helicopter Messer twats, but that isn't always easy because if they realize that they have a stab button along with a swing button, it's a real tough fight. That loving stab comes out so quick and starts doing damage so early....grrrrrrrr. I mad. There are a lot of weapons that have some of the same advantages as the Messer, the Messer just seems to have all of the advantages in one package.

I enjoy pressing q into the back of their head as an ambusher. I guess I enjoy doing that to everyone though

Plain and short swords are still my favorite melee weapons, something satisfying about twirling around with one as MAA.

I've been forcing myself to use weapons other than the long/short/sword, shovel, and one handed spear. Polehammer feels pretty good but I'm not very good at fighting against groups with it.

I mean the biggest starting tip is to use overheads and stabs more. Side swings are good when you’re in a huge melee, but if you’re 5v1 there’s no reason you should be doing a side swing. Yes you’ll have to aim, but that’s a big part of the game. The reality is this is just simple geometry. Use math to win!

I dunno, countering their wild panic side swings can work sometimes. But yeah, pokes are usually the way to go if you're not gonna get hit by their swing anyways
