Update 1.5b

Update 1.5b
Greetings community!

Update 1.5b is finally out and this is the feature list:

- Fixed occasionally occuring silent melee hits
- Improved client to server synchronization
- Fixed fine positioning sync issue
- Momentum and angle of impact tweaked to increase minimum damage
- Removed melee double hit exploit using feinting
- Fixed stamina drain bug when hitting dropped shields
- Fixed Pitched Battle mode tie break end condition server crash
- Shield on back only reduces damage and does not protect when knocked down
- Netcode optimizations

We've done a number of optimizations as well as addressing some issues of the switch to server side hit detection. Synchronization code between server and client has been optimized to allow for more accurate predictioning and hit detection, and this has also have had good effects on reducing the prediction warping.

Furthermore we've adressed a fine positioning issue (thanks IG Offen) where players standing still sometimes could differ up to 20cm in position sync.

Silent hits should be a lot less frequent with this patch. You may however still occasionally experience a slight delay to it sometimes that corresponds to your ping to the server.

Momentum and angle of impact has been tweaked to raise the minimum damage. A lot of players got the impression that the wide spread in damage made it feel a little inconsistent. You still need good timing & aim to maximize the damage though.

Another tweak that has been made with the o so useful shields, is that they no longer fully protect when hanging on the back. Damage is reduced to about half the original damage, and when you're knocked down they do not protect at all. These adjustments have been made primarily to discourage fighting with your back towards the enemy, and the latter to avoid the sometimes rediculous difficulty in finishing off a knocked down player with a shield on his/hers back.

We also have fixed the bug in Pitched Battle mode where the server sometimes would crash in the tiebreak end condition, which is an old issue originating back to the first beta version I've been told.


We hope you enjoy the game!

Jeux assez surprenant,assez facile pour ma part niveau prise en main,bien que non maitrisé pour auatnt.
Systeme de classe avec bonus différents,attaque speciale différente/spécialisation différente ect.
Pour ma part le guerrier de base est deja tres bien,et le systeme de "niveau" avant de pouvoir jouer une autre classe est tres bien,puisque vous serrez obliger d'avoir des bases (bien que ce soit tres rapide a faire).
Possibilité de creer sa "classe" avec quelques customisation possible (choix casque,cape,couleur,barbe,emote de taunt etc) .
Surpasse de loin Chivalry dans a reactivité et sa précision.
Saxon VS Viking ,de quoi vivre d'épiques battailles !

Franchement, ce jeu est super....

Tres tres difficile en prendre en main mais les possibilité sont enormes en terme de skill (gestion du coup, de la force, de la position du bouclier, de la position de l'arme qui pare...)

Bref, graphisme excellent, jeu tres fluide...

SUPER JEU !!!

I will not support Fatshark after there treatment of the community in this game.

Servers are dead. Game is laggy. Game mechanics are broken or just do not work as intended.
This game had so much potential and the dropped the ball. I would reccomend getting Mount and Blade Warband instead.

I used to adore this game. Since alpha, I had strived to get better and better. Sure the game was laggy and all, but the game still had a pretty high skill cap, and on a high level the combat was pretty different from something like Warband because of the dodges and specials. It was also much simpler than War of the Roses. I haven't played in a while, but since alpha the game has been intolerably laggy in half the games I have played, but instead of fixing this, the developers added more and more DLC and whatnot. I also believe that the competitive scene and the community in general is more or less dead by now, and there won't be any more updates to this completely unpolished game. The game had potential in the alpha, and I had a lot of fun with it, but now it's definitely not worth the price.

Unsuported game, many bugs that could be easily fixed, blatanty not telling the truth on whats happening on the devs behalf and allowing you to still buy the game for a time, then refunding you for the Valhalla edition with 20 games you will never play. Gross customer service.

Well last patch rolled in today... So after more than a year playing this game I decided to exercise my rights of writing a review.
Do NOT under any circumstances buy this game. Not even in a sale. It's completely broken. Oh boy where to start and where to finish with this game... The netcode is even worse than what it was during early Alpha/Beta stages or the released version for that matter. It's pretty much unplayable in this state today, with players "teleporting" even with low or average pings, due to bad netcoding. Ghost hits are still present in this game completely removing the "skill factor" and replacing it with something like a "luck factor" due to the the bad netcoding resulting in a lagfest. So many map glitches still present... You can even feint an attack and the opponent would get damaged out of nowhere...
This is just bad, I don't want to continue writing such a negative review for a game I loved during early Alpha/Beta stages but they left us, unfortunately, with no choice. If you think the released version of WotV was bad, just take a look at the game at its current state. Basically the only thing they got right after so many patches are the shields. But that's about it, the rest of the game is broken.

don't buy this game, it has no community only 2 populated servers and very stale feeling melee combat. the customization is great however at least as far as cosmetics are concerned. and the 2 servers that are inhabited are all full of rank 60 UBER-1337-HOLIERTHANTHOU-DOUCHECANNOES. can't recommend it.

Very few players on servers, almost "dead". And since there's only multiplayer, and no single player. I cannot recommend this game to anyone.

Developer seriously confused about how to fix issues and not piss off customers. Instead of fixing game, releases new classes for $5 DLC.

I would never recommend this game to anyone.

Statement regarding the War franchise
Greetings community!

We are writing you today to inform you what is happening with the War franchise, most importantly War of the Vikings but also its predecessor War of the Roses. This announcement has been some time in the making and has been no easy conclusion, yet we aim to be as transparent as possible. So, with no further ado, here is what is happening.
We are stopping sales of the Valhalla edition - effective immediately
All Valhalla owners will receive a large selection of Paradox Interactive's games on steam (added directly to their steam libraries), estimated value circa $800 as compensation. This will appear within a few days
Valhalla owners will also keep their Valhalla privileges - nothing will change here
War of the Vikings will see two patches to increase stability and solve major issues - after this we will cease patching and have no plans to support the game further through updates/fixes
Servers will continue to stay active until further notice
War of the Roses will see no further development
Why are we doing this? To put it simple and straight forward; We've looked at this from every single angle (that's why it's taken time for us to come to this conclusion) over and over and we just can't find a way where we can keep developing the games without operating at a loss. War of the Vikings did not live up to our expectations and we could not find a reasonable scenario where we could bring it up to par quality wise.

We have chosen to patch Vikings in order to bring it to a better state, so that current players can continue to enjoy what we have today with increased stability.

Sincerely,
The War Team
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I can understand its not cool to have a productive team working on a dead title... but there are so much you should have done before... is it like you guys are making a game without thinking or having the funding for a period of time after launch.. Patching and making your game baby shine!

Make the game F2P and add some cosmetics like beards etc. or maps or DLC stuff , seems like this game has alot of servers running. Its cool as H... when playing with friends so i dont get it, but that is why you are publishers and im not im sure ! Its really sad seeing this leave and hate that its called dead :(.

I think i will not support anymore of your Games from now on, i feel like this is a trending strategy.. seeing it more and more.

Next time, have your baby and feed it with content and care for it! dont tuckle it in a blanket with 2 patches and throw it in the bin and act like we "wallet" dont understand whats going on ! Peace

Wow.. I can't even describe how bad the game is.. It's basicly A Un-updated game... It's actually looking like it'll be a P2W game soon.. And the developers Fired their Crew.. AND WENT ON "vacation" HOURS later.. And they've been on "VACATION" for 2-3 months Aparently..? And on top of that. The game, Can't even get to the main menu before crashing.. THIS being during when they went on vacation.. YOU literally cant even run the game to judge it!! With that in mind.. I'd say they probably "vacation" A.K.A. dropped the game and ran.. I Don't even know if they'll make any more updates considering their "vacation" has been.. 2-3 months?.. I think the longest vacation i've had is like.. 4-5 days.. Either they quit. Or they're lazy as hell.





(WARNING) DO NOT BUY THIS GAME

This game received a lot of bad press and reviews and hate. Honestly, I can't understand why. It had a suboptimal start with some bugs and netcode-issues, but in it's current state it's an amazing game. I'm a dedicated gamer with over 300 games on my account, I'm gaming excessively for 25 years now and I would go as far to say that this is the best multiplayer-game I ever played. The graphics are the most beautiful I've ever seen in a game, a true piece of art. Actually the game in motion looks much better than the screenshots. The maps are extremly well designed and detailed, setting a new standard. You can literally see the great amounts of love that the devs put into them. Also sounds and music add nicely to the atmosphere and complete the great presentation. The gameplay itself is simple in it's elements but is in result very deep and skill-based. Easy to understand, but hard to master, like it ideally should be. The combat is fast, tactical, uncomplicated and satisfying. All upgrades you can unlock are purely for prestige and visuals, which is great since it doesn't create disadvantages for new players while it's still rewarding. Only drawback of this game is the small community, which makes it difficult to find other players early in the morning and in the middle of the night, but it doesn't bother at the rest of the day. Another little issue might be the beserker-class, which rewards spamming a bit too much. The game would be better without them but I don't see it as a serious issue since berserkers have very limited potential. In conclusion I got to say it makes me really sad to see that such a beautiful game doesn't get the attention it deserves, while millions of people pay 60 bucks for CoD every year. Makes me honestly question the future of gaming, it's industry and it's consumers. I guess the low success is a combination of bad marketing and the fact that most players today get frustrated by a game which requires a few hours to develop decent skills in, compared to CoD where you just need to know how to pull a trigger. And surely this game had a tough start, but every major multiplayer-game has these days. In this case community and publisher/devs were sadly very impatient, which is disappointing. But even more I'm disappointed by the market (respectively consumers), since it apparently doesn't reward an elaborated, ambitious, well-designed game which hasn't an advertising-budget of billions and in which you will get killed many times in the beginning since it's really skill-based and requires some learning.

The development team has been disbanded and the publishing company has killed the entire franchise. This game had an incredible amount of potential, and it has all been destroyed by horrible management, marketing and Battlefield 4 level network errors. A year ago, I would've recommended everyone purchase this game. 8 months ago I would have said if you enjoyed melee combat games, it's pretty good. Now, I can confidently say, it's simply a matter of time before the plug is pulled so to speak. Purchase War of the Vikings ONLY if you want to go down with the sinking ship. There is fun to be had and beauty to be admired, but it's all on borrowed time now. I'll miss this community, because in truth none of us know how much longer we'll have servers to play on.

TLDR;
Devs abandoned the game.
Publisher is notoriously profit over quality focused.
Game WILL be shut down soon, it's announced in the forums in a political jargon filled post.
Don't buy.

It was a good game. Fast-paced and combat intensive. Although sometimes laggy and player with high ping are a little troublesome but everything is alright and playable. I had fun. However the latest Santa-update 1.5 patch totally destroyed the game. The hit detection are weird. You hack and hash your enemy and he splashes blood everywhere but just don't die. Then you died because of hit from nowhere. This is common. You will also meet people teleporting or move like phantom. These problems exist almost in everyone who still play this game (no more than 50 every day). You won't meet player easily since most server are ghost server. Luckily when you get into one with 10 players, you either get kicked out by high PING or play and meet all freaking phenomenon stated above. I loved this game and bought Blood Eagle Edition and Valhalla Edition in ridiculous price because it WAS a good game. But the dev team killed it, TWICE.
