Flame blades make perfect sense. They make it easier to parry, and leave larger stab wounds, without making the weapon any heavier, and sacrificing only a slight bit of stability. The only trade-off is that they're hard as fuck to make.

A flamberge of ridiculous amplitude like the one you posted would amplify the downsides immensely while reducing the effectiveness of cutting.

>this sword slices and puts pressure onto several smaller spots, making it like slicing with 5 battle axes along a sword

FLAMING SWORD
OF
DOOM
Practical? idk
>>
>>258095314

I remember reading somewhere that when nobles were to be executed, they got the sword instead of the axe, because the sword's blade actually made it easier to chop through with a single slicing and drawing motion for fast and relatively painless death. Normal peasants got the axe, which would sometimes take two chops and leave the person twitching and gurgling as their neck was only half-severed. But I can't provide a source, so take it with a truckload of salt.

>A typical key is a small piece of metal consisting of two parts: the blade, which slides into the keyway of the lock and distinguishes between different keys, and the bow, which is left protruding so that torque can be applied by the user.
>the blade

The blade in keyblade does not refer to a literal blade, it refers to that little bit at the tip that would unlock shit if it were a real key. It's not even used like an edged weapon except in the cases where the specific keyblade in question has a very obvious sharp edge. For the most part a keyblade is just a fancy looking metal bat that happens to be magic, there are plenty of more retarded weapons to whine about out there.

I ABSOLUTELY HATE that everytime there is something pants on head retarded in fiction, people always pull the "lol it's not real" card.

Here's how this works faggot, even though a fictional universe has fantastical things, it is still governed by its own rules, things atleast have to make some form of semi-sense in the world it takes place in, otherwise, it breaks suspicion of disbelief. Of course, we all know that stuff like Godzilla not being able to support it's own weight and the likes, but atleast on SOME level, it has to make some lick of sense. The fiction has to establish some form of excuse of why things are the way they are. Even if it is a excuse as shitty as "lolmagic" but it is still an excuse.

Of course almost all fiction can be boiled down to nonsense. But when fiction has something so insultingly retarded that even a 5 year old says "that's a load of fucking bullshit" you know you are doing something wrong.

Some were. Generally speaking I think, the ones with the really long, wavy patterns were more for the looks, especially the ones that were rapiers (flamberges)

Flambards however (what happens when a zwiehander rapebabies with a flamberge) had much tighter patterning, and were often of a weight and size that indicated actual use. Ceremonial swords were much, much bigger and heavier than their useful counterparts.

He still analyzes it like an edged weapon for most of the video when it's clearly a bludgeoning weapon. It especially bothered me when he was talking about hitting with the bit at the end even though all the animations have you hitting with the opposite side of the weapon. Also the part where he was saying you could use it effectively with that one technique is actually used in quite a few attacks.
The video would have been better if he'd watched some gameplay to see how they use it before he spent 6 minutes talking about shit that doesn't apply.

The thing not a lot of people realize with scythes is that in real life they don't look how they are portrayed. The axis of the blade is perpendicular to the axis of the pole, not aligned.

I'd say scythes are very effective when giant magical scythes appear behind people and pull them closer to you so you can hurt them with your point blank magic nuke.

And the "grim reaper" style of scythe would be just as retarded as actual scythes. It's a big, heavy blade, that has only one sharp side: The side that faces YOU.

It can't be used to thrust or slash. It can basically only be used for slow, stupid overhead attacks or by swinging it past the enemy and pulling it in to cut them on the back. Either way, anyone with a sword or normal polearm is going to rape you.

Who says it would only have one sharp side? If we are imagining what a fictional version of a weapon is like, there's no need to constrain it like that.

I imagine having it bladed on both sides, plus adding a spike to the top might result in something useful, it could be used as both a spear, and to hook shields and limbs.

It might as well be true, but fact is that the majority of weapons used in combat haven't been flamed (in fact, I've never seen a flamed weapon that was recovered from a battlefield), while the majority of flamed weapons have been primarily meant for ceremonial purposes.

Of course, i'm not saying it would make it better then existing weapons, I'm just brainstorming some ways it might be somewhat useful.

Why would you design an indestructible sword that deals more damage by being shot point blank to vibrate WHEN YOU COULD JUST HOOK IT UP TO A POWER SOURCE THAT VIBRATES THE BLADE CONSTANTLY.
Then you woudn't have to bother with timed hits, although they could leave that mechanic in and just handwave it with "the battery is limited so you should only activate it when you're hitting something" or something like that.

I guess when people say that swords are side arms they mean the bow and spear was the most used combo in battlefields all over the world.

The spear itself was the AK47 of medieval times. It was easy & cheap to manufacture, easy to maintain, and simple to use. It was a good balance between weight, speed, handling, and striking power. And when used correctly, just as deadly as any expensive sword.

Not everyone could have a sword, but almost anyone could have a sword.

Rich people died too though and plenty of people were well rich enough to afford weapons like this.

Did you not read the part right after that?

Just make it an HF blade with a vibration cell that you have to pull the trigger to activate temporarily in bursts.

Then you could keep the gun design, keep the pointless gameplay mechanic, and you wouldn't have a fucking stupid design.

Hell, that's how I thought Lionheart originally functioned. It looks like a laser sword in-game so I figured the blade was made of energy and you use pulse ammo to increase the blade intensity momentarily, which would make actual sense. But then Dissidia came along and ruined that.

>Why aren't they a thing in video games?
Probably because video game developers don't look at history but only at the D&D manual.

Yet for some reason people think historical games were "boring" and only fantasy games were cool.

Yes, I am 100% sure that OP's reason with this thread was to piss people off.

Spears are good in 3 situations
1 - giving a poor person a cheap weapon
2 - cavalry charges (using in and using against)
3 - fighting in tight, non-moving formation
If you aren't doing any of these things, a sword is more useful.
However the simple fact is that almost every battle contained at least one of these 3 situations.

Field battles that is.

Lots of fighting takes place in duel or self-defence situations, sieges and assaults on cities or buildings, etc. - there a sword is probably a better choice too.

The spear (lance, pike, etc.) is the king of the battlefield however.

so... it basically glows and you can slice with the sword or poke with the sticks in your hands...

ok, I get it, you can attack and defend with the same hand, why the fuck though you have a lantern inside it?

Not him, but shields were very important offensive tools.

A person with a sword and shield is twice as deadly in single combat as a person with only a (one handed) sword.

right, but - whats the point of even saying that. Lets talk about the usefulness of xerox office copiers as battering rams

Why would you bring your axe along when you're out in the field harvesting?
Why would you have more than one axe per household so both you and your bro can have one?
Axes aren't exactly cheap for a peasant.

It's for night operations. You can use it for signals, lighting your way or blinding your opponent by rapidly opening and closing the hole.
