ug... Chivalry was the featured sale today, its like 6 or so bucks, so i figured fuck it.

Goddamn that game is crap.  Even spending 6 bucks feels like a waste.
When west germany annexed east germany, nobody moved a finger too.

His opinion. IMO I think it's worth 6 bucks.

if gfx > gameplay, this is great game. But still more expensive than watching a nice movie, and less satisfying.
I don't know enough

After some more time on this game I gotta say its not bad. I've overcome the "wtf what was dat.." stage and get a bit better. The battlefield is much more "alive" than in crpg and teamplaying is very rewarding. Ranged is kinda crap but the rest is fine.
What I like very much is that you just play, you dont have that money pressure behind you. Just play and try to kill. Nice

I like it because it's a lot more casual. So it can be played a bit more easily, with less rage and just as a time filler some times.

I think this game gets more slack then it deserves, no its not the warband we know and love, but not every game should be. Chivalry does melee combat different and I think they succeeded in making a system thats easy to understand/hard to master and still fun and accessible.

I haven't played in months, I always dominated with a 2h sword (really any of the 3 I unlocked) and easily topped the scoreboards. 

It's definitely a fun game, more arcade-like than c-rpg/warband, but still a pretty good melee combat system.

I'm not a fan, partly because my computer can barely run the damn thing (which is odd considering I can run Skyrim on high settings. Maybe I just messed up on the installation?). I bought it when it was out there for $20, thinking that it would be like a medieval Team Fortress 2... boy, was I wrong. I just can't get immersed into the combat. In Mount & Blade, I get into the "zone" where I block, swing, and feint without thinking about it. In Chivalry I find myself just swinging and not blocking, and there I am, at the top of the leaderboard. There aren't very many weapons, or very much weapon differentiation, so combat is very static. Mount & Blade is simply the better game and I don't understand why games like Chivalry and I daresay War of the Roses end up as some of the most popular games on Steam. Hopefully, if Mount & Blade 2 is ever made, it will be received by a wider audience.

Well if you team up its actually pretty interesting to go for the objectives. I dont see much in team deathmatch or something but the objectives are pretty nice.
Combat is just very different, the attacks feel like actual attacks and also the blocking and getting hit feels more authentic. Its a bit "more real" in comparison to crpg. The background scenery is very well done and the sounds are very good.
I will play this when I'm fed up with crpg for some weeks again. Nice timefiller.

All I know is how delightful it is to chop off 2 heads with one swing.  Or get into a death ball and walk away over a scattering of body parts.  C-rpg= ARMA2   Chiv=CoD basically.

Chivalry gets an update every Friday.It's nowhere near finished as a game and there are ton of bugs you might see.On my 20 hours gameplay i think its easier than M&B,archery suck and its pretty much kinda unbalanced.You can block a fucking hammer with a short sword as an archer and you can rape everyone as an archer with a dagger by spamming it.Most people in there never block and don't know how to play even if they are at a high rank lvl.After my 20 hours gameplay i think its not that fun just because it's easy and if you played M&B and you had some basic skills you can rape anyone at chivalry and get on top scorers for fun.There is no fps lag unless you got a bad pc and you won't get a delay for playing with 150+ ping on swing.That's just an awesome part of the game.
