I'm pretty sure that either war of rights or BCoF will be a cash grab, maybe even both. Wouldn't be surprised if the melee is really dumbed-down to appeal to the "casual" crowd. Same reason spinning was nerfed in NW, don't want game mechanics that are too complicated so that a new player gets dumpstered by a veteran 95% of each duel.

This was my NW life  :-\

The fighting mechanics are unique but they're downright retarded. The way spinning was wasn't helping.

Yet it made NW and MM one of (if not) the most popular DLC/mod of Warband. Those "retarded' mechanics can be a decider on the lifespan of BCoF.

Spinning is retarded. It looks ridiculous and was never intended to be there.

I'm assuming when he's saying "retarded mechanics" that he doesn't mean just spinning. Hence I'm talking about chambering etc.

no spinning ? NOOOOOOOOOOOOO

I think that will greatly nerf the fun of the melee :(

But well, gotta play before we can judge

You are all judging gameplay before we have even seen any material on that, let alone even play.

Besides that, the game is set in the 1860s. Shooting is gonna be your main activity, a bayonet charge was not something done a lot in the ACW.

How do you plan on tackling revolver damage? Will it be a one shot?
Check out my YT channel where I post NW www.youtube. com/c/CluelessWill

god damn, Anthony is smart, he was able to get the shit AEF to tie with the best reg in the game. The tactical geniusness needed to pull off such a feat is insane. He's the Erwin Rommel of NW.
i always get an erection when i check my subscrptions and see that phresh cluelesswill vid
It won't be FSE developing it, so it will come out!
