Remove the damage cap of the couched attack. (Lancing)

I can easily get 1 shot if I head charge due to the speed bonus, but on the other hand speed bonus for me is capped , because of the couch damage cap that was implemented years ago.

There is a hard cap? How much is it? Doesn't that make great lances pretty useless?

Nah, can't be. That would mean you can't ever 1-hit anyone with couch.

There definitely isnt a hard cap that i know of, ive been oneshot with like 60+ hp heavy armor. From experience it seems like its nearly impossible for infantry to reach the same damage potential using the same speed bonuses against cav, or the window is extremely precise.

That said i have had couches deal suprisingly little damage at times (like 70% with 7 IF 66b armor), but i think that comes down to either builds or me negating as much speed bonus as possible.


Is this an honest buff request? Your cav KD must be like 3 or 4 right? All you really do is just find unawares and oneshot them, or continuously play on the safest angle and hope that they dont have the athletics to maneuver it for a counter.

All I really do is find unawares?

Dude, I am one of the few lancers that go head to head with enemy inf, I even charge people with spears.

I play lancing for the thrill of it, not easy kills.

No one is able to survive a full speed couch lance to the head, and its good that heavier armoured classes can survive body hits.

Imo its still freaking overpowered.

I'd still like to know if there really IS a cap for couched lance damage, because I was playing with the thought of looming a great lance. Even an unloomed one might be pointless when there's a cap... Dem intransparent game mechanics...

Not you specifically, couch lancing in general.

If you run away, you might be able to survive a couch lance to the head, depending on build.

However, there can't be a damage cap. I use a 10/36 build and I one-shot everything that doesn't run the same direction as my horse (which yields a lot of negative speed bonus).
I voted Gurnisson cause of his fucking bendy pike, I swear noone can roflcopter stab like he can.

Someone clearly hasn't used a great lance. - No dmg cap on couched lances.
