    Discuss game mechanics in general.

    Oh, you should recall, as per the rules, when continuing discussion into another build, specify the number of the build you are referring to. Vastly outdated conversation may be archived; very specific conversations may be moved to their own thread.

    The build number of this thread will be updated to the current build. No new discussion threads will be created, but you can use the number as a reference while creating your own. That way you do not need to look it up everytime you want to create a new thread.

    Build at the time of this posting is 354.

    Ignoring bugs, it's kind cool that you can throw someone for damage. It gives people another short range weapon. I plan on using this new weapon as a free hit by carrying a dead body around and trying to throw it at the right time to block an attack and provide damage hopefully.

    I made a little bit about corpse flinging in the knight forum, CLICK HERE.
    If anyone got more info on that please post there. Thank you​

    I had epic fun with this last night, I was on a premium server, and I got this bright idea.
    Superkeg+catapult=no more map
    I must have obliterated 1/3 of the map with super kegs.
    Be warned, the catapult WILL not fire if someone is infront of it, your highly explosive death bringer and destroyer of worlds will stop, and become your newest way of death.
    anyone else got an idea or two on how siege warfare should be waged?
  5. Yeah, I have. Stop using super kegs, they are crap. They make giant holes in map which ruin game for both teams and lag the server.

    about the corpse carry thing,
    would'nt it be awesome if it provided some cover from arrows?
    I'd LOVE getting two extra hitpoints from enemy archers just by carrying one of them! (the irony! it burns!)

    Carrying corpses is quite nice, but wyth, shouldnt that thread be in general mechanics?
    Any class can carry corpses, after all.
    They can be very usefull to break a knights cover.

    (if only the bugs were fixed :()

    Well corpse flinging is disabled now... corpses behave like pillows in 360... Also I thought that the knight had that launching thing going on and is generally most likely to throw corpses in battle... or was... but since we got pillow corpses now... forget it.
  11. Awww, I didn't really like wacky corpses but that was a really nice mechanic : (.

    Backward sliding into a forward jump slash is fucking OP.
    Characters are still unnaturally 'circular' (Due to testing out new mechanics like zombies and 'balls' I assume), this leads to things such as shielding knights looking as if there is space between them, jumping on people acting stranger, sliding off.
    Throwing bodies into walls fucked me up like crazy, bounced off and straight up raped me was insane.

    Only messed around very little and skipped 360 and such, will do some more testing soon, especially with these new found powers we have :v

    Notch jumping is still wonky, noticed it in 360, you can't be smooth like you were able to before, so that can really suck sometimes.

    Falling seems stranger, not sure about sliding down walls will give it a try soon.

    About the notch jumping thing.
