Here's how I feel about archers right now.



Hopefully, they will find a meaninful way to nerf archers. Nothing worse than getting rag dolled across the map from 80 health because a crossbow bolt hit you in the finger...

Maybe decrease limb damage quite a bit so that its really rewarding quality shots on the torso and head.

I played the filthy ranged classes last night. Jav thrower was probably the most fun. Stay close to fights and throw Javs in peoplesís backs, especially their good players.

The fact that team damage is so low makes it so ranged dudes are willing to shoot into group fights and thereís almost no consequence for missing.

The bots donít respond well to good footwork and things like holds. Generally if you move away or side to side against then and do a hold, youíll kill them easily. They are also easily recognizable.

Bots do weird things like not push up far enough to actually defend an objective or stopping in door ways. Seems theyíre more useless on defense than offense.

Match make. Itís just bizarre that sometimes 4 Ping is amazing and sometimes itís absolute dog poo poo.

Chiv 2 is way too much fun for this thread to be so quiet. I wonder how badly the EGS exclusivity is hurting it.

People have been getting better though. If youíre fighting a shovel user just keep your rangeÖ

I was having trouble with one particular glaive user. The spam was unreal. I thought he was slashing through his teammates too, which may very well have been the case.

Honestly there are very few secrets about getting good at this time. You have to play to get used to everything, the better people get the more of the techniques shown in the tutorial you actually have to use. Remember that the people who are destroying everyone have thousands of hours into medieval melee games.

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

I did that and it was plenty of fun! Though the good players in duel servers are something else, I barely last for 1 block against them. And after a while I get bored, I crave the madness that is 64-player team objective

Today I had a really good team in one match, I think they recognized I was a liability so a couple guys always stood next to me and interrupted people from stabbing me or distracted them so I could sneak a hit and dodge back, lasting a lot more and racking up more takedowns (they got most of the kills). Just having one person at your side and attacking enemies in turn, alternating stepping back and forward between the two of you makes a huge difference!

Stop side swinging and try to get in opposite sides of the enemy, then you can side swing to your hearts content.

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.

Bots are easy if you move away from them. Their AI wants to be close, when they get close they love to spam short fast weapons that make them dangerous.

This will probably sound weird but I donít use specials. I canít remember which one is a big overhead, or a big side swing, or a charge or a small underhand. Does it differ between classes, too? I donít pay enough attention to if my run indicator is on or not. I do know the most efficient way to put out damage to multiple targets is the executioner axe heavy side swing though.

So is this very, very fun game hosed? It had every server full at launch and maybe 10k+ players. Last night it had about 500.

Would a patch fixing performance issues and letting people play with friends save it or is it too late?

Why do small incremental patches to show progress when you can make a huge post, never patch for 3 weeks and try to delete all evidence about the announced patch? Oh yeah and then show off upcoming weapon skins.

I never even consider who might be in a party on my servers, theyíre too low on the scoreboard to even think about.

You shouldnít really fault people for being good at the game or wanting to play with their friends. Both are perfectly reasonable things to do.

Counters take Stam now which is bad for high skill players. 1h spear is out. And they added and fixed hair colors.

The lag definitely is noticeable. I donít know if itís net worse but itís different for sure.

Played with SSweaterLive today while he was streaming. He managed to survive the peasant phase of Coxswell, and get to work with a mace and shield. Not dying the whole time. I topped the scoreboard and healed him a few times but it was definitely cool to see.
