After 270 hours of casual play on this game and earning my rank of 39 I have decided to give my honest opinon about this game.
~~~~~~~~~~This is all my opinon and my personally experiences of this game~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Now I had this game about a month or two after the offical release and not much has changed since its original launch from my perspective. If anything I would go to say the game got worse throughout its time by nerfing weapons that werent OP and then buffing the OP weapons (Those dagger mofos). Even the classes seem a bit unbalanced as well once you go up against competitive players who treat this game as life. Which leads me into another thing to talk about which is how this game can be played, and there are only 2 ways it can be played or at the very least 2 types of players.
1. The first way to play is competitevly, in the basic sense, taking this game seriously and committing yourself to this game only. Now if you are a competitive player and love a challenge even though around 70% are gonna be better than you right off the bat and always be better than you then play it if you want to get your ♥♥♥ kicked. Since this game has been out for around 2 years I believe all the veterans (excluding myself) are experts of breaking animations and full out ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. If you do try to play competitvely atleast find a weapon that you enjoy playing and that works for you and get good at that, if you try other weapons constantly trying to be the "Jack of all Weapons" you will find yourself breaking your own sanity (In my case 3 keyboards). Other than that statement that concludes the competitive playstyle and onto the next.
2. The second (and only way that I found) way to play is casually. What casually means in this sense that I infer it to be is playing with only your friends and ♥♥♥♥ing around and not taking this game seriously. Like honestly never take this game seriously you will have a bad time. This game can be extremely fun but only with friends. Being able to ♥♥♥♥ around in a broken game is always fun even I enjoyed it but out of my whole group of friends I pretty much stayed with this game and kept playing it which lead me to try competitevly (worse decision of my life).
Now let me go towards the community of the game, which I would like to imagine its a cross-breed of ♥♥♥♥♥ and reddit. The arrogant slobs who think they know everything since they look it up not later than 5 minutes ago attribute that reddit has and then having the vulgar and lack of filter that a ♥♥♥♥♥ user has. These guys will constantly talk ♥♥♥♥ about other players for their lack of skill when the person is rank 5 and they're rank 50, appaerently the internet tough guy is common in this game. Anyways these guys will constantly break animations and mechanics of the game just to win and feel good and ♥♥♥♥♥ at you if you kill them. They will then claim nonsense and lag that they died and try to harrass you with their childish insults. So in short a good bit of the high levels (40s-50s) are disrepsectful brats who seem to be autistic (not trying to offend anybody by saying this but play the game and see for yourself). Now just a little disclaimer of cours not every high level person is like this around maybe 15-25% at most is not like this from what I have seen.
The Archers take the most skill needed for having the need to aim in the game and being the squishiest of all the classes.
Man-At-Arms takes the least amount of skill for having the fastest weapons avaliable to him along with its backstep function that can easily put you out of range of others attacks making you seem invincible from barely getting a scratch in combat.
Vanguards take the second least amount of skill and is the class mostly played from what I have seen. Have weapons that have high reach and autistic speed makes an easy class to use since it commonly breals animations
Knight is a hit or miss with skills depending on the weapon you are using. If you use the maul you pretty much need the skill level of an archer or just slightly below it, however some weapons can be easy like the man at arms aresenal but not as cheap from that little ♥♥♥♥'s backstep.
Overall this game is boken and people abuse these mechanics that are quite annoying to deal with and people defend this mechanics saying that it was put into the game for a reason. Im 50/50 on that from Torn Banner's progress on the game breaking it after every update and making it worse. Thanks a lot S-h-i-t Banner
Age of Chivalry was pretty much the BETA of this game and had very choppy animations but the mechanics of that game were in a sense fair and you could do a lot more in that game such as ride horses. I have been tempted to play Age of Chivalry so many times because of this game but I always lack the motivation to download it again.
So should you play this game? No you shouldnt, a better game is coming out with better combat mechanics that bring this game to shame. Coming out next year while the beta is coming out soon if not already the game will be called Kingdom Come: Deliverence.
