Does anyone know exactly what the numbers are?

Old Stones values vs new.

I've skimmed through a lot of Stones QQ and it's amazing that I havent come across a post that actually describes the numbers? What kinda nerf we talking?

unlike certain server which was half private things and some douchebag who paid for hosting would force his personal view on everybody who joined the server.

Isn't that exactly what a melee-only server would be? Some douchebag forcing his personal view on everybody who joins the server?

Posted directly from my "cRPG Playlist" on Youtube.

Can Zimke start work on a 'Ugandan Knuckles' helmet?

Maybe by the time he's done the meme will be funny again.

Senpai helm and pimp-horse!!!!

We need this so that nobody plays it (again), and every time someone whines about ranged ingame or on the forum we can tell them to go play on the dead melee-only server that nobody likes because Warband was designed to have all the classes.

There is tons of stuff to do in-game to "balance" your team but people dont appreciate that, in its place we have a very old playerbase that are becoming so passionate in their dogmas (or so far up their own ass, your take) about ranged/melee/throwing etc that they could create a religion about it and there would be people to follow them. Its just a game guys.

You know what I always appreciate in threads like this where anyone says something is "literally unplayable", "nothing I could have done" or "the state of EU1 is just ridiculous"?
- Gameplay footage.

Because the moment someone posts a gif or a short video of the gameplay or state of the server, it's like the magic illusion of "literally unplayable" hysteria is briefly vanquished. People aren't talking about some fictional server-from-hell anymore, as they're forced to see what it actually looks like whilst they're typing.

Maybe instead of Prof spending ages developing something we don't need, he should develop something on the forum that posts a random snippet of gameplay any time someone says "literally unplayable", "nothing I could have done" or "the state of EU1 is just ridiculous", just to keep us focused on the reality of the game rather than letting our imaginations run away from us.

Actually lmfao  :lol:  :lol:

"cRPG Religion" ... we need priests ...

grab a shield

This meme is the perfect example of melee having the wrong attitude when they try to deal with ranged.

I die to ranged, should I:
A. Review where we were on the battlefield? Where was my team? Any decisions/misplays that led me to this point?
B. Work on core-skills such as awareness of individual ranged (using 'tild') and timing dodges when I know the ranged will release?
C. Assume a single piece of equipment will balance the situation for me and make me instantly unbeatable vs their class?

Again, when would anyone ever resort to 'C' against any other class? But against ranged, people assume there's a 'rock-paper-scissors' solution that will make ranged useless if they only bring a certain piece of equipment. Then they cry that the shield won't do literally all the work for them. Forgetting that "the game should be skill-based" works both ways and whatever *you* do, the ranged must have ways to respond if they're good enough.

It's a game based on skill, you'll never find a piece of equipment that totally negates another class and the skill of your opponent. You shouldn't expect one. But "grab a shield" is the perfect excuse as infantry to pretend the problem isnt lack of skill on their part, and the perfect tool to make sure they never try to get better.

The next time you get shot to pieces though by 5 archers however, you may want to ask yourself where your own archers are or what the hell you are even doing charging a ranged nest alone with no shield and no friendly ranged backup to give you some suppressing fire.

When people talk about ranged being OP, it's nearly always in these '1 vs 5' scenarios. And that's a bullshit argument. "It's garbage, I was on my own far from my team trying to attack a hoard of enemy players alone and I lost... there was LITERALLY nothing I could do!" well how about not playing like an idiot?

Do melee players come and cry for nerfs every time they charge blindly into 5 enemy infantry and die? Or against 5 lance cav?

How about people do what they'd do against literally any other class, and avoid that engagement unless they have near-equal numbers.

Very true, it only takes 1 person in a full roster to ruin everything

General Discussion / Re: Could Strategus be more accessible?

Yes, Strategus could and should be more accessible and clearer to use. But I don't think it should be possible to join battles without the commander accepting you, a single troll merc could ruin the battle for their whole team, and the good battles are over an hour (and took a ton of organisation to set up) so there's a big risk. It could still happen even with current system, but at least there's some degree of control over who gets in.

I want to fight you IRL Kratos cos you locked that sweet ban-thread before I could post my genius closing statement  :cry:

It was going to tie the whole case together, suck up to you massively, whilst also repeating time and again to OP that you are my close personal friend and therefore will show leniency in this case. The thread would have flourished :(
