1.2b Patch Notes

25 juni 2014

War of the Vikings
1.2b Patch Notes


[Design]
BERSERKER

Background:
We felt the sudden speed boost forward when the berserker enters frenzy was both jarring to the berserker himself and made the experience for his opponents trying to defend just too unpredictable, especially when high network latency is present. To combat this, we have decided to first and foremost lower the speed bonus given when in frenzy. We have been pleased with the berserkers ability to cover ground to reach his target and how this plays into the frenzy timer, so to offset the lowered movement speed in this regard we have decided to slightly nudge the amount of time the berserker has to get his kill. This also plays into giving the berserker some slight more breathing room and time to think when going frenzy which should hopefully reduce the amount of accidental team damage that occurs in these conditions simply out of desperation on the berserker's part.

Changes:
- Forward speed bonus when in frenzy reduced to 15% from 20%
- Duration of frenzy increased to 12 seconds from 10 seconds.



[Fixes]
- Added some collision to Ravine, Stronghold and Village to prevent exploits.
- Fixed client crash that could occur while loading a new level.
- Fixed client crash that could occur while disconnecting from a game.
- Fixed server crash that could occur if a player reached level 60.
- Made some minor CPU optimizations.

One of the most interested games i ever played it is like Vikings versus Saxons, knight fighting game. 5 different gamemodes like ''Team Death match, Pitched game, Arena, Conquest, Duel'' and basic classes to play on the begin. u can make custom classes with capes, taunts, new perks, beards, hats, Tatoo's and ofcourse weapons and shields.

8 different biomes (Maps) to play in tactical combat skills and much more interested things i never explored before
Thumbs up for this fantastic (Tactical Co-op game)

Hello!

Well like many others i do play this game from the start in Alpha.
There are many people who are realy good in this game so dont forget that!
I see alot of complains about that the shield does not work..

I can tell it does work.. How do i know that? Cause i am a Shield Player.
The thing is with the Shield is that you have to use it not only in frond of you but also both sides of your body..
like if you have a Enemy in frond of you that one is the most easy one you can fight if you got a shield, but if you got someone with a 1h axe or a 2h axe infrond of you, to block his atack you have to move your holl body to lefd or right if you dont do this the 1h or 2h axe will go around it, so its not that your shield dont block the atack.. No its because you did not block it!

The only complain i have about this game is that it does crash alot, now i dont know if its is the game or my pc but still its a awsome game!!

Having played the first installment of the 'War of' games for over 800 hours one might be inclined to call me a fan of the style of game Paradox had created and I was hugely enthusiatic about the next chapter in what could be a blossoming franchise.

However, (and this is taking into account the game is still in beta as I write this) the game has failed miserably in delivering an improved performance and gaming experience on the previous game. This is a watered down version of War of the Roses, but by no means does that make it easy. Hitboxes are non-existent as the game is all about movement of you body postion rather than skill/precision of aiming your weapon and feinting attacks. Consequently if you get average FPS (like me) then you need to steer well clear of this title as smoothness is imperative.

FIghting mechanics seemed to have had a huge overhaul in WotV, which isn't necessarily a good thing. There are 3 ways to attack (when in melee combat) instead of the 4 in WotR and there are perks that can give you 'autoblock' for one specific direction, taking the total number of ways to concentrate on to 2. You also have the ability to carry out special attacks, which if connect give insta-kills (or so I believe). Thanks to the above the game provides no real satisfaction when killing an opponent (during melee), as you don't feel like it materialized through your in-game education or skill progression, but rather came about thanks to the hack and slash elements of the game. Don't get me wrong, there is skill in EVERY game, but it isn't a skill that inspires you to learn more, want more and basically....play more.

Ranged wise the game has got similarities to WotR and there wasn't a desperate need for change, as the ranged system was smooth and worked well. It was satisfying and still is, with the addition of throwing weapons like axes etc it has added another string to it's bow, so to speak, so all in all ranged is pretty good.

In addition to the new implementations on the ranged side of things, customization has also been given a boost. Though so far I haven't seen anywhere near the weapon count of WotR, having said that it is in beta and will almost certainly be getting more content as the game develops. Nevertheless customizing the look of your character is still good. Capes, beards and helmets are all included as is the look of you clothes...I think.

Graphically the game is still pretty nice, I am not sure if it is as good as the previous game, but that is something YOU should make your mind up on. Although let it be said it certainly isn't bad!

There are issues with server drop outs and total game crashes, which one would hope to see ironed out when the final product is released. However I wouldn't hold your breath as these issues are a known problem on WotR and have so far been overlooked in every patch release.

In all honesty on a personal note I was hoping for a re-skin of War of the Roses with maybe a few new features chucked in, whilst seeing some of the bugs and glitches addressed. Unfortunately that was not the case, and instead of getting a very in depth, hand to hand combat game like it's predecessor, we were provided with a competitor to Chivalry for the people who have an ephemeral attention span, want a quick fix and nothing more. It does have some new features which are nice, but the core of the game is just poo.

For the discerning consumer out there, do youself a favour and give War of the Roses a try (and give it some time) or, if you want a quick fix go for Chivalry, but don't waste your hard earned cash on this sloppy execution of a game. For people wanting and expecting War of the Roses part 2, forget it, it is a completely different game. For those wanting a Chivalry emulator, snap this puppy up and spam until your hearts content.

In conclusion, a thoroughly disappointing game. Essentially it is all geared towards a fast paced, hack and slash game rather than the slower, more realistic fighting we came to love (and loathe) on WotR. Given time I am sure that improvements will be made, but addressing the core fighting mechanics is essential and unfortunately that is not going to happen.

5/10
