The Challenge Thread

Here's a thread I'll start where we try insane challenges and have a laugh trying them. I know there was a thread from last year with some, so we might as well keep the tradition going! Videos are recommended but not mandatory.

...

I'll start the first challenge to kick things off, the No Hitter challenge. Novice Practice or any Arena Campaign elimination of at least Novice AI difficulty, defeating every opponent in a row without taking any injuries whatsoever.

See the below video for my completion of the challenge.

I have completed your challenge, and if I may be so bold, in shorter time as well (with extra seconds dedicated to slowmo replays and intro/credits). Being a sword and buckler specialist I had enough familiarity with the style but struggled to never swing.

No Hitter + Thrusting only:


After completing it I would assume someone with more practice using sword and shield could pull off a sub one-min run without too much trouble. Aswell, it does really show off how powerful thrusting can be in lower ranks.

Was fun, I believe there was a challenge not too long ago with some pretty difficult challenges, such as beating expert arena with only a sword and no armor.

HopeDIV, your aim when thrusting is admirable, far more finese than I, I just find myself lunging in and stabbing with force and crossed fingers! Nice work!

Thanks! Your thrusting is a bit more than just crossed fingers, I can tell from the video :p
It helps to think of thrusting with your movement instead of the weapon, there for keeping the cursor on whatever section of the body you want to hit and moving forward, while maintaining (or trying to) the cursors position.

Challenge proposal - Hold left click challenge: Complete the practice arenas with the left mouse button held down for the entirety of each fight. Overhead swings and thrusts are permitted. Pugilism NOT allowed! NO rebinding LMB if you know how!

Equipment rules: You can use equipment picked up from enemies, but every new attempt requires that you start only with the equipment available at the start of the arena. Also, only items from the novice practice arena are allowed in the novice practice arena.

It may be a bit tricky to prove that you've been holding down LMB for each fight but I'm sure someone can think of something!

Harder mode: Do the above but with LtR/RtL swings only.

Beast mode: Do the above with no armour (both novice and expert).

Problem - Cannot perform overheads or thrusts without first letting go of LMB. Unless im mistaken, in which case, educate me.

You can keep holding LMB and you'll continue to do overheads or thrusts. I just tried it in the latest version

Edit: Unless you mean at the start of each fight, in which case yes you can let go of LMB for the first few moments.
