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!

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.

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.

After playing this game for some time it's good for someone who wants a game that is SIMPLY a medieval warfare(EMPHASIS ON SIMPLE) then get it BUT, I don't reccomend it because, they stopped support of this game and its too little to like.

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.

Had already been a poor game, utterly ruined by latest december patch. Save your money, even if this game ever becomes free.

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.

I bought this game in the very early release stage. It was pretty much unplayable as it was so buggy. Still fun! I just came back after having bought it in October of 2013. Seems like beta should be done and it's ready to roll right? Nope. Still in beta. So this was my experience today. I reinstalled the game, I loaded it up, Paradox forces you to make an account because we all know how well that goes over with gamers having to make an account just to play a game. I get in, I go to the tutorial to get familiar with the game again, I hit W, started moving forward, left clicked my mouse and the game ♥♥♥♥ing crashes. Pushed one button and it crashed. Probably an omen, stay away. Give it time and it might be ok. For now? No.

The game is good, but there are few available server and you get too little gold after the battles.

First: I played it more on my previous steam account.

Short review:
Got my head chopped off by a single heavy hit. 8/10.

Longer review:
Seriously, this game has a problem. It's not the game itself, it's the lack of players. This game is awesome and has one- if not the best melee combat implementation ever. Period. Obviously some of those casual, left mouse button spamming, "easy" kind of players don't like that and brag about it, because they want on-click-action and ♥♥♥♥. If you are that kind of "player" please do not play this game. Better play some WoW or other clickery ♥♥♥♥.

Pros:
+ beautiful graphics
+ nice animations and fluid gameplay
+ kickass combat system
+ no pay 2 win
+ much customization

Negs:
- lack of players
- berserkers (seriously...they ♥♥♥♥ed it up a little bit with those LMB spamming berserkers)

8/10

Very nicely detailed dark age Viking combat sim with mechanics akin to Mount&Blade. I was able to find a group of players on a single server to jump in with. Other than that there's not much more to report. Wait for sale and add it to your collection of Medieval games.

War of Roses was brilliant, a great game by all accounts that I really enjoyed. Based on that I had such high hopes for War of the Vikings, Beta was good but then somewhere along the way something went really wrong.

What really has shocked me though is the lack of interest in actually completing this game and fixing what is broken, besides Ubisoft I have never seen a complete lack of disregard towards the consumer. Instead of a refund for a broken game that was never finished, we where offered (Never got it personally) a bundle of old worthless titles in "compensation".

That alone proves that they know they made some serious mistakes.

Don't buy this rubbish, it's a trap. Get War of the Roses, despite it being an older title it's solid.

Laggy, Overcomplicated, Barely changed since I bought it; A waste of money, A waste of time.
(Also there were a total of thirty people playing on the servers I could access)
