Watching these vids I begin to realise that M&B is more realistic than we thought.  :lol:

You just rushing in the middle of sea of enemies and they all take turns on hitting you does not work in any way and is cheesy as fuck. It just makes me horribly cringe these days. Mindless Warband bots all charging and swinging at you all at once is where the realism is at. You have to make an insane amount of effort to not get overwhelmed. The typical Ubisoft thing of adding more enemies to the insane crowd around you does not increase difficulty really. Just makes the fight longer.

Yeah it isn't a great combat system. Does look fun though but along the lines of an upgraded dynasty warriors. Better combat but still not up to par

Well, I liked Dynasty/Samurai Warriors, this looks like good, shallow fun. Not worth a 60$ price, but i'd be totally fine shelling out some 30eur or so for it.

I played the beta this weekend for about 20 minutes, not my cup of tea. The aesthetics were nice though. I would play Chivalry before this.

Yeah it good, 2v2 is especially fun. Its got depth in the combat, a bit like m&b combined with chivalry but also with fighting game elements to it. It wouldnt surprise me if this gets rather competitive even, it really does seem pretty well made. Havent played since beta though even if i bought it.

It's definitely far more difficult than the videos show. It's more of a fighting game than a Warband style game. It's good but there's some serious balance issues at the moment.

source: a lot of hours in beta

Ok, great. Even watching streams I had the impression this was more interesting than the trailers suggested.

There's a lot more mechanics and interactions than videos can show, unless you're watching for hours and know what you're looking for. Add to that every character being different in terms of attacks, health, damage, moves, animations all the way down to different dash and guardbreak distances, throws and other special mechanics and it adds up to a lot.

It's definitely not on the difficulty level of fighting games but to be honest those games are frustrating unless you've poured hundreds upon hundreds of hours of learning the basics, your characters and every other characters movesets enough that you can defend against. I think ubisoft made a good middle ground here.

The story mode was decent enough as well and not that easy on hardest difficulty (no block indicators).

There are class tiers, but it seems like most can be put to use quite well even if they arent top tier. Top tier combat seems to boil down to feints, guard breaks and parries, lots of reads and mindgames and basically no spamming. A bit similar to M&B but much easier to grasp, and all the parts are much more necessary to win. Being defensive is beneficial which can be rather boring, but duels last shorter than the average crpg duel so to me its still in a fine spot.

Cant wait for Xena Valkyrie buffs, just a slight boost in damage would be sick. Having a good time still, you know its a good gameplay when you can get locked in hours upon hours of practise, and still enjoy it thoroughly. Same happens to me in Rocket League, nice to have other semi competitive games to swap between.
