A Tale As Old As Time…

June 11, 2021 by Tim

Some things never change. That’s comforting, in a way…

Regardless, Chivalry 2 is fucking bananas, and I love it. Stormed a rampart while dodging ballistae, beheaded an unprepared archer who couldn’t draw his dagger in time. Picked up his head and threw it at his nearby friend friend. Let out a triumphant battle cry only to have the world go black. Another knight hadn’t seen caved my face in with a log.

10/10, would siege again.

War never changes, eh? πŸ˜‰
I someteimes feel, that the ingame KI on your side is modeled after random players you get on your team in WoW battlegrounds or any other big MMORPG.
Because they never doth fight on thy fucking objectith…

it doesn’t matter what genre the game is, if there’s an objective, and there’s a way to PVP away from the objective, the conflict will always move further away from the objective, and given an infinite amount of time and respawns, eventually the fighting will move to where they are maximally distant from all objectives in the arena.

Given a straight choice between the dude who actually contributes something interesting and the dude who shoots the first dude down with an utterly unoriginal β€œyou must be fun at parties”, I’m pretty sure which one I’d invite to a party.

“refuse to fight on your objective” What’s the problem?

“Thine” is to “mine” as “thy” is to “my”.

Interestingly (or not?), I was confused by the icon being a word rather than the first letter or a word. I didn’t know that was a thing, so I wanted to look it up. That lead me on a google search where I learned all about lombardic capitals, iconography, and even more fun, historiated initials!

Yeah, it was like “this is THE very first word of this tale, so it is even more important than every other word, so it must have the Capital-est of capital letters. A SUPER Capital!” (Or really just a stylistic choice of the times. xD )

Also, Kudos for doing research on a thing of your own volition! ^__^ The world is sorely lacking in this department lately. >__>

The one setting here the Battle Royale set-up would work a little bit with two explicit teams, but No.

The first Chivalry was amazing, I put over 400 hours into it, but I just can’t get into 2. It’s all of the same thing… yet, worse in every way. Sluggish movement and attacks that make combat unfun, longer grind to unlock anything, and an even more insufferable player base that can’t go 2 seconds without throwing homophobic slurs at anything. It reminds me of the transition from Team Fortress Classic to Team Fortress 2 all over again.

Only thing it does better is being able to play as a lady.

Games may evolve and adapt, Generations of gamers may pass growing up with different ideas and play-styles.

But some things NEVER change…
