Official Survey about item power

We are trying to do a global survey about the general attitude towards items.

Please take this seriously, and try to answer honestly.

Also, the result this poll shows is not really what interests us the most - we will do detailed statistics with the raw data.

Illogical answers will be removed automatically from the result (like buffing and nerfing the same item).
Picking less answers will (probably) grant your vote a higher priority.

you can change your vote.
also, this vote is secret, please do not try to influence other people.

I know this poll is limited, it's just intended to give us a general idea.
To give you a helping hand in answering the topics, ask yourself this question:
buff <item class> - would I like the fact that every item in that class would get it's stats increased by 5%.
nerf <item class> - would I like the fact that every item in that class would get it's stats decreased by 5%.

that should give you a good idea about what to tick and what not.

May I say that it is likely the average player will vote to buff their most used playstyle and nerf their natural counter. I don't see how this will give you any accurate data, but welcome the chance to offer honest feedback nonetheless.

1 choice for me: buff speed of 1hers. ^^

I think that some people will take this seriously, and considering chadz himself said that the devs would do "detailed research".... I think it'll work out.

I chose both Buff polearms and Nerf polearms, the most expensive ones are OP while spears needs a buff...

I think only polearms should be nerfed a little, someone can stun (no blunt weapon but, for example, the hafted blade) you and continue spamming without possibility to block it.
Other classes are balanced i think

Yes, I agree with this. I've been stunlocked many times. It doesn't matter how much damage it does,, it's all a matter of speed. 1hers are also slower than polearms and 2hers in a way that they honestly cannot get a hit in... at all sometimes.

If bows get a nerf, please, please do not nerf the longbow. It's the only bow (in my opinion) that is balanced.

Generally the mod is more balanced than ever.

Might have noticed my campaign to buff the katana a bit.

To sum up:

* Same speed
* +3 or 4 to thrust so it doesn't bump 70% of the time. (Right now it's very suicidal to try it)
* +1 or 2 to cut to match the longsword

This will make it more or less equal to longsword and the bastards. (price is fine, and still more than the other short 2handers)

And.. another "request", less logically, and perhaps more egoistically motived.. make some of the spears 1-slot items or not dropping to the ground at least. Spears and pikes are great for teamwork, and so many times I've dropped pikes at spawn for teammates. (Bamboo.. ahem.. please :-) I know you have some ninja love in your black, cold heart chadz!)

The game seems pretty balanced atm, the only thing that should be fixed is the ability of polearms to completely stunlock you making you impossible to block. And, give maces bonus againts shields then we don't need to nerf shields : D.
I was the first one who started -1-ing everyone, now everyone does it to everyone.

Can ONLY select up to 18, damn, jk.  But would be interesting to know results at the end.  Most things are balanced right now, except horses speed/maneuverability stilll pretty high.  Once the January patch nerfed levels and made 3 agility per riding it wasn't immediately an issue because of expensive upkeep, but with upkeep lowered in one of the hotfixes and people accumulating gold for months so cavalry definitely becoming an unbalancing factor.  pre-January you could dodge a lance with good enough athletics, but most people have far less athletics now with level cap so couching lances and lollancings are really easy kills.  Would not be surprised if cav kills have been steadily rising for past 2 months as a percentage of all kills.  They also have been getting fewer and fewer ranged counters so the dancing just out of range and then swooping in with high speed and maneuvarability and almost always a longer weapon except against bamboo spear, long spear, and pike has become quite common.

i have nothing to do with you but every post i ever happen to stumble across by you is QQ and whine about cav...give it a rest, the key is in the title of the game, not the mod
