I retired my character.  It's official; M0D 1S D3AD.  I finally got that sweet, sweet demigod title but I'm never going to get to see it.  I'll miss you cRPG-- you and those 7000 hours I ain't ever getting back.

All hail Gallon, the weakest player to ever retire. Level 0.00 doesn't hold a candle to the mighty level 132.26 kinngrimm.  :lol:

what about the 1h right swing? :)

left is the quick, shorter range attack and right should be the wide longer range attack.

when the "new" 1h right swing was introduced it was with the argument that it makes it easyer to hit the head and i think this is a very wrong reason to change the right swing. we lost the range that we used the right swing for to make it easier for noobs to hit the head, im sorry but its just stupid. learn to aim like we have to learn everything else in this game. i want my 1h wide flat right swing back!

i dont mean to offend anyone, i like several other changes this person made, but this 1h right swing is just very wrong and have always been very wrong, i hated it since day 1

That was changed by tydeus and without him around no one knows how to adjust animations (or rather no one is brave enough to mess with them). That said, the rightswing is still the longest reaching 1h swing and it can outrange any 2h or polearm of comparable length.

you realize you're responding to NIKKLE, and giving advice to SCHOI? They are both MUCH, MUCH better players than you.

Whether they're better or not doesn't really matter since most of what he said was correct. In a game like crpg you can have lower ping and/or faster reflexes and perform "better" than someone else 9 times out of 10, and yet they can still be more knowledgeable than you. Game knowledge =/= skill =/= results in a game like this. And given the little snippet of footage from schoi and miley's duel that I watched, neither duelist did much to break the pattern of attack - block - attack - block. Maybe schoi had been doing stuff like nudging, feinting, holding or spamming earlier and had given up on those approaches by the time the duels were recorded, obviously those of us not there wouldn't know what went on before/after the recording.

But I forget that this is crpg where perception of skill is far more important than actual skill, so whatever we say won't change peoples' minds.

Turns out you were the genius all along.

Yah but that I already knew.

nah just need to make tournaments with teams, i.e. 2v2, 3v3, 5v5.

crpg aint a dueling game. its primarily team deathmatch. so tournaments should reflect that. group fights are so much more interesting than even the very peak performance players dueling 1v1. the possibilities expand so radically with multiple players.

Agree wholeheartedly. Imo 3v3+ is the best as even 2v2s can often divide into two separate 1v1s with the occasional target switching.

Tournies aren't dumb, just duel tournies.

the status quo.

I read this as "the strategus quo" and thought you were a genius for a second.

Yeah that's why duel tournies are dumb. Crpg isn't hard enough.

Dang cikel is going on a little bit of a run it seems (no offense but I didn't realize you were that good at dueling, I guess all that grinding in NA3 has payed off). That said, it is funny how he has (thus far) made it as far as uwu, especially when you compare the opponents they both faced.

Probably not on site, but if you're looking for a new calling in life, we're interested in very passionate people with no skills other than dealing pain too.

No skills, eh? So my no skill having ass can work find work there? How many carrots per week we talking here?

Speaking of, Pleb_Jona 7-0ed by Ogerp. Sorry for the hold up.

In Dota 2 the competitors on the "winners side" do not get any extra benefit in the grand finals. The big benefit is having to play far less elimination games if you stay in the upper bracket.

In this tournament you can have a tournament champion that wins 6 duels if he was seeded into the second round and stays winners side. On the other extreme, if a player were to be seeded into the first round and lose, drop to losers bracket, and fight their way back to the grand finals they will have had to win 11 duels, nearly twice as many fights.

Yeah, competing in fewer matches is a nice perk, however I think that a dueling-focused tournament should follow rules more in line with the FGC, since warband duels are almost a fighting game of their own. Also, while most FGC tournaments are completed in only 2-3 days, players going on a long losers run oftentimes build momentum which can help them should they make it to grands where they have to face off against a "cold" player waiting in winners... so playing more matches isn't strictly a bad thing. While momentum is far less impactful in a month-long crpg dueling tourney where you may only have one match per week, playing more matches can at least get you in a better mindset should you suffer from nerves or something.
