Yea, I don't really get where you got button-mashing from because that doesn't work at all in this game. You have a split-second to parry an attack, since you cannot hold it and there's a slight delay before you can parry again.

The whole point in melee is to trick your opponent into parrying early by feinting, dragging your attack, etc. Archers are a thing but you can deflect arrows by parrying at the right time as well, so that gives people without shields a chance.

I'll say right away that this game is more challenging than Warband will ever be, lol. It's basically an updated Chivalry that took some Warband mechanics and created a way more fun game than either. The only thing I'd criticize right now is a lack of maps and competitive game modes.
Eh, I'd say that this is just as challenging as Native Warband. Definitely harder than NW though.

yea, don't do it

Off Topic / Re: Matt's Hacking allegations
« on: April 03, 2019, 06:30:01 am »
There has never been a person in NW who has become a competitive top player through the use of hacks. The only time I've ever seen people hack they're either randoms, trolling, or from native (lul).
Sounds like Suns + whoever in involved in framing Matt is just really salty that he's a good player (maybe a better player even?)
If Matt was more humble/didn't brag about his skill nobody would have any problems with him, the accusers are just coming from a personal level of offense.

I'll post mine.

It was January 28th. I was pretty much done with the world and felt I had no reason to live. For those of you who don't know me, I'm a paramedic who some months before had made a few medical mistakes that cost the lives of two patients. Every night when I went to sleep after that I could never get the image of the eyes rolling into the back of one guy's head, the blood and stomach contents spilling out of another's mouth as we tried to fix his fucked up airway with plastic medical equipment so substandard you wouldn't trust it to repair your toilet. Enough sleepless nights and constantly dealing with other peoples' emergencies and you start to feel there's no way out for yourself. I was surrounded by people and yet I felt so alone in the world.

So I bought a rope on one of my days off, tied a noose in the garage, drank a bottle of gin, said my goodbyes to everyone I loved on steam, and next thing I remember I'm being handcuffed and taken to the hospital, where I was committed for about a month. Apparently from what I heard much later, after I said my goodbyes some friends of mine doxxed me and contacted the police. They saved my life.

I came away from that event a changed person, and know now that no matter how hard things get, they can always get better. Since then, I've acquired another job, I have a girlfriend now who loves me, a home full of people who care about me and more friendship and sense of belonging than I ever did before. It was a life changing experience to survive suicide.

Hopefully me posting my story will make you feel a little less bad about your situation, Morraine.

Damn. I'm glad you recovered from such a horrible experience, and thanks for sharing it to help out Moraine when you didn't have to.


Sucks because from my memory the community only became toxic after 2015, before then mostly everybody got along and there wasn't any "jokes" about suicide/personal lives. The assholes of the community are a minority, but unfortunately they're the loudest (you know who you are). Even the toxic trolls have feelings and shit in their life they struggle with, but I don't think that justifies their actions. Just because you can be a edgy dick over the internet doesn't mean you should.

Thanks for sharing Moraine if you need to talk hmu on steam anytime.

I just wanted to explain to yall that yall shouldnt feel insecure because of me, I just got lucky and won the RNG of life and was born a 6'3 white chadlite
Truth be told, women probably find you repulsive because of your god awful personality. You crave attention and validation from women, and you don't receive any of it, and it really shows. Women sense desperation mate, and it's pretty obvious you are desperate. Get a grip you pathetic rat cunt
I really don't understand why you're so upset lol. Not once did Matt say he hates women, craves their attention, or has problems with women. He's just aware of the way people work. It's a very simple concept but I guess thats why it's called a hard pill to swallow
"women find attractive men attractive"

zoMG haRd piLL tO sWaLloW
no, what matt is trying to say is that women (and men too) value looks over personality and that the more attractive you are, the more doors are open for you/the better people will treat you

While I don't think that you can do whatever you want, I do agree that the world gravitates around attractiveness and being attractive can open many doors for you. It is a hard pill to swallow for most people, but it's the truth and it's how we as humans are.
btw Jeremy Meeks' jaw seems to be very deceiving, but maybe that was just bad lighting

why is karth so low? did everyone forget when he beat mang and bill in that duel tournament?

Why would you want to dumb down a melee system that already is very easy to learn? I think FSE should try to make it more advanced and complex if anything.
Because the primary focus of the competitive melee scene is bayonets, at a certain level of skill fights become very monotonous due to the game rewarding ultra passive, low-risk styles (To be fair though this mostly only affects 1v1 duels, but dueling is still a huge part of the competitive scene).
Once you play the game long enough, feints don't really phase you since there are only 2 animations for attacks. You could close your eyes and you'd have a 50/50 chance of blocking it.
A simple fix would be to increase the speed in feinting animations, or just speed up the game in general.
Another thing I think should be looked at is glances/pokes. In NW glances add a huge RNG factor to the melee because there doesn't seem to be a reliable way to determine whether or not you will glance.
(Off topic, but another idea I think would be neat is to add an option to play as your own customized character alongside the pre-set ones; like being able to choose your own outfit/ weapon skin)
