Arms & Armor - Contest for the Chivalry Item Workshop

August 28

Welcome one and all to the Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Contest. Torn Banner and Polycount have drawn up some battle plans and we’d like to invite you all to the fight.

To do battle in this contest, you won’t be crossing swords or banging heads on the field of battle. At least not right away. We will be needing your blacksmith skills to provide the swords and maces for the battles to come. Helmets are needed as well to keep some of the axes from finding a home in a skull or two. Strong irons and stout woods will be used to craft the items that can survive the killing fields and the judging.

For full details, visit the contest page at:

“I saw my body slump to the floor, some distance away and then the hammer-bastard was standing over me, attempting to play croquet with what remained of my face.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

"I’m rather enamoured by the unique flavour of online combat presented by Chivalry. It’s fresh and fun, and like the very best games is easy to get into yet incredibly hard to master."

About the Game

Besiege castles and raid villages in Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is a first-person slasher with a focus on multi-player. Featuring competitive online combat that seeks to capture the experience of truly being on a medieval battlefield. Inspired from the intensity and epicness of swordfighting movies such as 300, Gladiator and Braveheart, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare aims to bring that experience to the hands of a gamer.

The game is skill-based and controls like a FPS, but instead of guns and grenades, players are given swords, shields, maces, battleaxes and longbows. Set in a fictional, yet gritty and realistic world, players will fight in fast paced online battles besieging castles, raiding medieval villages and fighting for glory in the arena with up to 32 players.

Key Features:


  • Deep melee combat system provides players with a huge range of responsive combat options
  • Adjust your attacks and blocks in real time with the mouse for precise and full control of the action
  • Wield an arsenal of up to 60 brutal weapons ranging from broad swords and battle axes to longbows and javelins
  • Dynamic objective system brings team tactics and strategy to the forefront as players batter down gates, raid villages and assassinate enemy royalty to achieve victory.
  • Use a variety of siege weapons ranging from catapults, boiling oil, ballista, battering rams and more
  • Vast, lush environments that transport the player to a gritty and immersive medieval world.
  • Offline play options that allow players to gain familiarity with the controls and gameplay before being thrust into the action.

Played this game over 1,000 hours and still love (almost) every aspect of it.
I could write a detailed and philosophical review at this point but come on.

**BE AWARE OF THE FOLLOWING BEFORE YOU BUY**

--->Decent internet connection required. No better than usual FPS games, but don't expect the little wired box in your eskimo cabin to cut it simply because it plays RPG games just fine.

--->The game has a learning curve.
Join a game and get killed. Get killed some more. Before you know it, you've gotten much better.
If you're anything like me though, you'll find yourself ragequitting quite often in the beginning. :D

--->The game features unique mechanics. All of them have their own titles.
Dragging is when you move your view around as you swing. Swings are realtime, which means the following when swinging from left to right:
*Stand still while swinging for normal speed.
*Rotate to your right while swinging to accelerate your attack.
*Rotate to your left while swinging to deaccelerate your attack, tricking your opponent into blocking too early.

Feints are cancelling your attacks in order to follow up with a different one. Very useful for making your opponent think you'll attack him, only for him to block too early and be hit by the follow up attack.

So as you see, many different techniques. Get the hang of them. Don't complain about them. It's all part of the game, if these techniques were removed it'd be Chivalry: Stamina Warfare. The game where whoever runs out of stamina first loses.
Instead you're offered a full arsenal of weaponry, a variety of classes, and a mix of fighting styles.

Are you good with a Greatsword?
Feel like picking the Spear and going Oberyn-style?
Maybe you feel safer with the Crossbow?
Or simply popping heads with your Morning Star, perhaps?
There are so many options, it's incredible!

--->Most reviewers are losers.
Are you reading the review section because you're deciding whether or not you want to buy this game? Then reading reviews is indeed a smart decision. But watch out.
There are some negative reviews. 5% of them make a valid point, the other 95% are blatantly ignorant. Why?
Because these negative reviewers would have been better off buying Call of Duty because they were looking for a mindless hop-in-and-own game. You will of course have fun in this game as well, but it's also a game that takes time to master. Be patient.
When I say most reviewers are losers, I mean that pretty much every single negative review about this game is posted by someone with very few hours spent in-game. They joined a match, they weren't used to not getting 1st place like in their mindless CoD games, and then they complained about a part of the game. Vanguards are OP. No, Archers are OP.
Trust me, after spending just a few hours you have no idea what's OP or not. These people didn't have the patience to learn this game.

If you're interested in Medieval Combat, then by all means buy this game. It's well worth the price, take that from someone who has actually played the game for a considerable amount of time.

Of course a peasant isn't a master in swordplay. As you start this game, you'll join the training and become attached to a weapon. And months later you'll look back and laugh at how bad you were at that first point. Because now you are a true soldier. No man can beat you in combat, and no team was ever luckier to have you on it's side.

This is not a game. It's more than a game. It's a pure test of your virility. It puts more hair on your chest than drinking olive oil from the bottle or being on the bottom while having sex on ashvalt.

Why haven't you bought it yet? Are you mentally enfeebled? It's been on sale for like $6.50, twice. I bet you're the kind of person who screendrags with a Zweihander or sits on the bridge with a shortbow getting two kills per game. This is a sport, and if you're a rookie you're going to die hard. Prepare to be impaled by that level 50 guy who has played 400 hours on nothing but spear and literally cannot be hit.

Forget your K/D. You're going to get Philip K/Dicked. You're the Man in the High Castle and your teammates would rather bum around on the ballista than save your noob @ss. Do you think training up your longbow skills is going to help you survive? Yarnu has built an entire Youtube channel around running behind enemy lines and shanking archers. That guy has a server named after him. You can't even block with a bow equipped. Get into the frontlines and take your medicine.

And one day you'll pick up a Javelin, start getting a few cheap headshots and feel like you've finally found your calling, you've discovered the niche in the game that nobody else can fully counter, that actually feels like fun. And then a bloke in red and green with a joker symbol on his shield is going to run up to your wimpy buckler and cave your head in because you never realised that shield bash was actually useful for something. Cambridge realised that ages ago. Back to the drawing board, peasant.

After almost 1,300 hours in this game, I feel it's safe to say the value is immense. Get the game.
