Which class is the best and why?
Here, I'll help with your shitposting.
>archers never nerfed, only limited
>combat devolves to how hard you push the engines limit and make combat look wacky dumb shit with reverse overheads
>slightest bit of lag or person with above average ping will throw out the timing of combat completely
I'm surprised people stuck around for as long as they did
Oh that's right, that fucking 2 hander dodgy fucking swing was bullshit, you get 2 hits for 1.
You crouch, hold a strong attack in and flick your mouse forward when you release, so that you get his with the weapon up in the air and when it lands.
And the devs didn't balance shit.
You can't get hit twice with 1 hit, you could ever only take one damage instance from a single attack.
The point was you either have to guess whether you parry immediately so you don't get hit by the instance reverse or if you should parry late when he drags the swing back around onto you. Turned combat into guess work and no amount of skill could make you predict perfectly what kind of reverse attack it will be in under .4 seconds, not counting server quality which makes it even harder.
And the devs did balance shit, but they were just terrible at it and listened to the wrong people.
I'm telling you, I was with a friend that use to do that shit all the time, now I'm thinking it might have been in number 1.
Was funny as hell to watch, pick a hammer then cause looking up slightly rotated so the hammer's hit detection would be at the front you would hit register twice.
You're completely fucking wrong
Getting 2 hits with the same swing is entirely possible. Crouch facing away, overhand hits them right at the start of the swing, you turn around, and bring down the end of the swing on top of them for a second hit
You're 100% wrong
No you're 100% wrong you fucking retard.
It's specially coded into the game since day 1 that you can only take 1 instance of damage per attack.
You are fucking delusional if you think otherwise.
I remember a bug, i'm certain it must be fixed by now its incredibly exploitable and easy to do.
Allowed you to cancel attacks at any point in the animation and instantly attack again at any point aswell, it sucked through stamina like a madman but that meant little when you became kenshiro due to fists having short windup long cooldown, was fun destroying a knight that way.
Doing it with the bearded axe overheads was also incredibly insane, speed of a dagger if you got the rhythm down.
Nah mate its not feinting, swinging, hitting someone and then whilst your axe is touching their head instantly swinging again to attack about 1-2 times a seconds.
This is cancelling during your attack not before.
Oh, that sounds like combo feinting.
It used to be broken with the Bearded Axe back when it was super fast and you could just feint a combo then immediately attack again. This was back before they nerfed it into the piece of shit it is today.
Yeah thats the boy, it wasn't just the bearded axe it was all weapons, broadsword stabs were deadly for it aswell. Smashing someones face with 3 punches a second was so dirty.
I bought the game for the sale
>mfw discovering the dagger
>stunlocking people on the low rank servers with stab combos
>that block animation that makes you feel like a badass
but then i stopped playing on the new player servers and played on actual servers, and now man at arms has gone from kinda fun and good but risky to straight up garbage
