    Thrusting Controls

    Maybe I am just crazy or terrible here. I have not been able to do anything even approximating a thrust. I have not scratched my enemies with a sword in anything but a swing. I have spent 10-20 minutes trying to get the mechanic working, but I just cannot seem to figure it out. When you hold...

    New Arena Pacing/Balance

    I am noticing that the new arena setup is very easily grindable, but also that it punishes risk taking very harshly (potential for instant death on a mistake). This leads to it heavily encouraging that you just dont take risks and constantly beat on easy enemies until you have enough gear to...

    Visual Contrast and Tone in play

    Alright, so I like this game. I enjoy the combat, and I feel the updates have been slowly improving it. I only ever play Arena mode. Seeing things in the standard game is a chore. The visuals all blur together, and are dark with low contrast. The game is straining on my eyes, and something...

    In-Game Technique

    What have you guys learned about martial technique in-game? I suppose I will start with what I know. Fast Compact Swings One-handed weapons and light two handed weapons are capable of fast compact swings, exceeding that which is normal expected of them. To do this, you simply begin a swing...

    Any reason not to use shields?

    I prefer when choices exist meaningfully. As it stands now, I cannot figure out for the life of me why I wouldnt use a shield if one was available. This feels like a weakness of the game. Am I wrong here? Is there some use to a pure one-handed weapon? There certainly are many possibilities...

    Movement Possiblities

    Right now, combat is a finesse game. Real combat has this be much the same way, and this mirrors it fairly well. Except that the granularity precision you get in this combat is roughly at the level of being incredibly drunk. Skill matters you say? Sure! The swordfight between two wasted master...
