Everyone can be good at NW, as you just need to block now.
I liked MM for the time it took to learn ^^

The M&B melee fights look ridiculous anyway... Might aswell try to keep it fun?

It's impossible to kill large groups in NW, because you get stuck into enemies, you don't always kill them in that one crucial stab and you can't really spin. Hate on spinning all you want, but if you have brains you can easily counter it and it is fun to use aswell. Oh, and for spam you need servers hosted in Germany and not the Netherlands.... Wait a second...

lol

Lol, sound more like, you, can't spin in NW, I find it especially handy against swords and axes.
Also, another reason why the new melee system should be prefeable, is that it is historically correct, which was the aim for thi game from the start.

Yes, skill level went a bit down in NW, but still, as a newcomer you really can't beat the seasoned melee'er.


One thing which I still find weird in NW melee, is how one could realistically ever keep his balance in such an upstab.

Are you being serious? Don't tell me that they actually all 1v1'd and fought in circles, please

BCoF, from what I deduced, is not gonna be a 100% historically accurate game.
I've always been one to say fuck realism and have fun learning this incredible mechanic, and I'll do so here as well.
If you try to be realistic, you are most probably gonna fall flat on your face. Give the audence what they enjoy. Realism sux :D

Btw, go check out Wor Of Rights for a 100% pure, First Person Civil War experience. I'm buying both games when they come out.

Can you just stop being so ignorant, you give the country a bad name:

Of course they didn't 1v1, duh.
But that is player style. One thing that is not player-style decided is how the actual attacks are performed, that is decided by the warband engine and animations.
