        chivalry 2 is more worth the money

        Don't listen to these morons, Mordhau is mechanically superior to Chiv 2. I have 200h in Chiv: MW, 700h in Mordhau but only 15h in Chiv 2. They deliberately made Chiv 2 more casual and removed advanced moves. Mordhau is more precise and competitive but also lends itself well to just fricking around if you're into that. The only thing Chiv 2 does better is visual presentation since it's a newer game and less focused on mechanics.

            Mordhau was made by Chiv 1 players who got tired of the ballerina shit etc. There is still swing manipulation as in accels and drags but it's way toned down compared to Chiv 1. You can't hit someone behind you with a lookup overhead swing for example. The thing I like most about Mordhau is how precisely the swings are modelled. You can hit an enemy's weapon mid-swing with your own and hit arrows out of the air.

                Mordhau is not nearly as abuse-heavy as chiv 1 and i think mordhau devs did a good job removing the frickiest techniques from chiv while keeping the depth and adding to it. At the top level mordhau can get pretty fricky as well but i think most people who call mordhau's combat shit either keep getting stomped and are salty or they're playing with high ping. Low ping (<60ms) is extremely important in melee slashers, more so than in fps.

                Nah. Mordhau followed in Chiv:MW's footsteps. It also took some time for spingays to become spingays, as it also took tittytwisters or whatever gay shit they dubbed the "skill".
                The difference being that mordhau gets a lot of people defending it because "it's so much better than chiv:MW :^)", hence posts like yours.

                The fact of the matter is that mordhau shipped with pubstomping in mind, and suffered heavily for it. Design decision that made no sense right from the beginning was ignored because le hecking good boi devs can do no wrong.

                Sweatgays ultimately breaking it was just an inevitability.

                At the other end of the spectrum we have chiv 2 which is so casual i have no interest in playing it even though i love this genre. Never understood this mentality where a high skill ceiling is a bad thing. It's like playing snooker with a professional, getting stomped and complaining the table is too big. Yes, theres almost no one other than "pros" left in mordhau but it's due to the devs not being able to ride the hype and update often enough, not because some players got "too good". To me, the driving force bringing me back to these games is the potential to always get better and the adrenaline i get fighting a skilled opponent.

                Haven't played Chiv2 so wouldn't know where it's at skill-wise. No one has a problem with a high skill ceiling. The problem is when the supposed "skill" comes from breaking the game.

                In my 700h of playtime i have yet to encounter a powerful technique stemming from "breaking the game". As i said, mordhau can get a bit fricky in high level duels but it's not reliant on glitches or weird unintended mechanics like lookup overheads, although something like a messer riposte accel can feel like "breaking the game" if you have high ping as past a certain point (~60ms) it becomes too fast to react to.

                Yes and in my 1500h of gameplay in Chiv:MW I didn't encounter "game breaking bugs" either. Fricking cope if you think mordhau doesn't have shit that you'd call game-breaking if it was occuring in chivalry, but because it's in mordhau it gets a pass.

                Also i was never really among the complainers about weird spinny shit in chiv 1 even though i got stomped because of it. Although unintended and op, it required skill to pull off well. That being said i'm glad mordhau has way less of it.

            Mordhau has the exact same problem in that you spazz your character to the point the animations become completely obfuscated. If you didn't like "ballerina" in Chiv:MW, then you won't like mordhau either.

      don't be fooled, Torn Banner are equally as amateur to the mordhau devs. Just because chiv was first doesn't mean its a higher quality product. Looks better in some ways, worse in others (character models, etc, weapons, etc). Game is fun but laughably poor in execution everywhere but the actual gameplay. So, in other words, yes, but don't expect torn banner to intelligently or adequately support the game or for the glaring lack of QOL to ever be addressed

    mordhau is definitely worth $7.49, but don't get disappointed if you drop the game quickly
    just keep in mind that many of the people you'll play against in pubs have been playing for years, and played chivalry for years before that. You'll get stomped over and over, and there aren't really any other games with transferable skills, other than chiv 1. It's not the sort of game you can pick up and be successful at within 50 hours.
    It's definitely more fun with friends, you can dress up as vikings or romans or whatever and just fool around. It feels a lot like tf2, lots of voiceline spam, cosmetics (99% free), friendly lute players, people don't take it too seriously usually. But it's a lot of work to actually get good.

      The dragging feels fine, but that might be because the entire game is slow as fricking molasses. I couldn't get into it at all. Refunded just before two hours.

          You are missing out. No other genre comes close to matching the tension of a close duel or surviving a 1v3. A big reason why these games are so unappealing and rage-inducing for some is that tension snapping on defeat after defeat and then turning into bitter apathy. But these are also one of the most rewarding types of games.

        I never played Chivalry and took a chance on Mordhau once when it was on sale.
        The combat system is pure trash, but running around and smashing heads and completing objectives in a big battle is still fun. The gesture and voice command system also give the game a lot of personality that's unfortunately missing from most multiplayer games, but the ones that do have it it's always a very memorable part of the experience.
        I'll admit I don't really know what I was expecting with Chiv 2, but I thought I'd just take a chance on it like I did with Mordhau and maybe I'd get another fun multiplayer game out of it. I wasn't really expecting the combat system to be much better or anything, but it just instantly killed my interest in the game when I realized it wouldn't be.

              Dude, I don't play those games for customization or to git gud. I loved the first Chiv because was visceral and immersive, the game loop reminds me so much of Red Orchestra 2, my favorite shooter of all time.
              I understand that Mordhau was made by Chiv fans to address specific complains and restrictions of Chivalry and the community always complained about the lack of customization options. The real hardcore players of Chivalry, the ones that populated duel servers were restricted by the games mechanics that was designed specifically for team vs team objective oriented battles.
              But for me this was never a problem. And the fact that you can make the whole Fellowship of the Ring using Mordhau assets is genuinely impressive, but it's not my cup of tea.

        I disagree. Players having distinct appearances is a big part of the game's personality and I personally think it looks fine. You have some clowns, but most people are just guys in armor. Unless you get seriously hung up over players not looking exactly the same or having armor pieces from different periods, I don't see what the problem is.

    I'd go for Mordhau if I had gaming buddies to play it with. Otherwise Chivalry 2 looks better to me, especially because Mord looks a bit dead with mostly just older or hc fans sticking to it.
    Although Chiv 2 could use one or two additional maps.

    hi devs, deadliest warrior was pretty sweet until you fricked the balance up and the game died

      Fuuuuck Deadliest Warrior was an amazing concept which almost worked. One of my most cherished gaming memories is organizing a mobile firing squad with random teammates in tdm. Playing as pirates, we stuck tightly together and upon meeting an enemy we formed two lines back-to-back with the front guys crouching and then rained hell on the poor bastards playing melee classes. The camaraderie was high and the tears in chat were delicious.

      They literally added a map, rideable camels, skins etc in a big update last week. There's not a lot of players currently but it's not dead yet.

        thats the last thing theyre gonna do, trust me. they are already shifting focus to their next game, which will likely be singleplayer or pve coop bc mordhau is literally piss easy to get away with cheating in due to how they designed it, so theyre giving up on multiplayer

    Mordhau is fricking great. There are a lot of ways to frick around in frontline and invasion modes. Bear traps, javelins, throwing targes/waraxes/mauls/partisans, fist fighting, jump kicking. The voice lines and emotes are great for in-game communication

    hell no.
    these games are only fun when they first come out.
    buying in 2 years later is moronic.

    I haven't played mordhau in a while since stab morph to feint is still a broken and underserved 50/50. The game is a lot of fun as long as people don't use those sorta things against you. Otherwise it is a broken game

      >stab morph to feint is broken
      Just chamber the stab. If he morphs to feint he gets hit.

        You'd think so until their morph smacks you out of the stab

          Only if you let them get close with a faster weapon and only if they stab-morph instead of stab-morph-feint. Just block if they go through with the morph. If you can't react in time you have too high ping or are too old to be good at this type of game. Also, think less about how the enemy behaves and more about how you're gonna behave. Mordhau is more proactive than reactive. Be aggressive, attack first and don't let up.

            That's exactly the 50/50. If you don't block you'll get hit by the morph but if you do block they can feint you. Feint are unreactable which is why chambers are there to prevent them from being insane but the technique circumvents this

              It's a fair point but the stab-morph-feint consumes a lot of stamina and it's possible to swing the 50/50 in your favour by predicting your opponent's decision based on his prior plays. The move is most powerful in duels and when facing an opponent for the first time, and can sometimes be countered by an lmb spamming newbie.

    The customization is much better than Chiv 2, you can make anything from Persians to Turks to Byzantines to Varangians to Normans
