    How exactly? It's way slower and more unreliable, the strategic possibilities are the same as they are in beta; non-existant. So yeah, I don't really see how a slow and laggy campfest is better for the competitive scene. Unless you are talking about the amount of clans.

    yea classic is full of combat bugs where as beta seems to have no combat bugs. in classic you would flyaway often from blocking a certain way or even clashing slashes a certain way. that shit doesnt happen in beta thank the lawd. I really dont look at classic anymore as a remotely fun game at all. i often dread the thought of even going there. and now since allot of betahaters are starting to look at beta and say (hey its not that bad, infact its way better than classic). in the end beta will become master race if it hasnt already.

    Its just my opinion but i think (in classic) combat is well balanced. Its maybe slower but it dont mean that you cannot rush...
    About the camp, it depends really of each clan and their idea of gameplay. I know that some clans like to camp behind their tower. We did like 30 clan wars and we always rushed our opponents.

    I would like to see some clans on Beta and maybe we will do some clan wars. We will need some rules like in ARL/World cup/gathers.

    Teamwork. Developers threw it out of the beta for some reason. Interaction between classes is not important now. How do you imagine clanwar in beta? Now game is not for competitive play 5x5, but for pub meat grinder 50x50.
    Bugs and lags is the curse of classic, but without it classic way more superior in case of teamplay games.

    JLordo is pretty right. It means a lot of exhausting and unfun games when you are so reliant of your teammates, it just isn't all that viable in public games. Also KAB has much, much more potential for some great teamplay simply because there is a huge variety of things you can do, but you just don't see it happening because pubs are usually pretty braindead.

    This is why I'm fairly excited to hopefully be in one of those groups who make organised teamplay or clanwars. I can see experienced players vs experienced players matchups be fairly fun and entertaining, but it doesn't happen so far due to a small playerbase.

    I'd Have to say I like alpha better. I've gotten really good at it... and then beta just sort of took over. I seem to like more classic and pixely (don't think that's a word::D:) games. I do like checking on beta and how its progressing, but I'd have to stick with alpha. I do wish they would update the heads from beta to alpha though... I dont really use the new heads, but just sayin :)

    For me the original is always better, so I say Alpha. I may just have to play beta a little more it's different and I suck a tit at the moment.

    I was extremely hyped for beta and I must say meanwhile I prefer it more because I like the faster moving of the knight and easy controling. Also in beta i r bst knight #hawxxbstknightbeta

    I am not really convinced at all by the Beta version. I think the biggest problem was releasing one big update instead of progressively improving the game. Of course, some features are fun... the water system is improved, the boats and trees are amusing, archers' arrows miss all their targets, etc. Though, there is no room for strategy anymore, it all feels like a Spiderman/Naruto crossover.

    There are explosions every two seconds, the new character choices are ridiculous, and when I die, I'm not really made aware why, I think that's what bugs me the most.
    Also, there's not enough time to create a real good strategy or wisely use the new mechanics.

    Usually I'm not the player who says "It was better before", however, that is how I feel. Because despite Alpha's bugs, old design, and it's enraged idiots kids, I still prefer it.

    Eh, I think the faster pace of gameplay does tend to throw people off, but believe me that strategy still exists-- you just have to think faster on your feet.

    Oh and strategy requires some sort of teamwork, so most of the time you won't see it in pubs.

    They're all filthy liars trying to cover for their unhealthy attachment to alpha.
