I’ve been playing for a couple of weeks, and I feel like I get more ANGRY at this game then any other game in recent years.
There are so many easy kills in this, it’s ridiculous. Even in full plate armor, a well placed sword swing from a guy in your peripheral can take your head off. Half of my kills or deaths feel INCREDIBLY cheap, and almost never earned. You’re usually always killing someone who is fighting two other dudes, or someone you managed to flank and catch by surprise. I feel myself getting pissed nearly every game, and I hate that toxicity that it generates from me, but the game is also just a ton of fun. It’s just nonsense and chaos in one insane multiplayer rumble.
For one thing, this game brought back a weird online light-RP server that I used to love in games like Jedi Outcast. Duel servers!
Basically, like in Outcast, a server pops up with a deathmatch gamemode, and individual players pair off, do a sword flourish to signal they’re ready and DUEL BABY. It’s a great way to practice with different weapons, until you run into the Mace spammer who just thrusts the mace over and over.
I do hope the devs add women and POC soon, like they said they would. You can’t justify the ‘hIsToRiCaL aCcUrAcY’ crowd’s complaints when the teams are red guys vs. blue guys.
