5 minutes in and I think Ben's already forgot the tutorial, as he doesn't remember how stamina drain works.
Psst, swings drain stamina on missed attacks, Ben!
Hell yes. This game rules.
Edit: It's not made by the people who brought us Chivalry. It's made by people who were hardcore Chivalry players, is my understanding.
this is not actually from the devs of Chivalry. entirely different studio
But can you mordhau in Mordhau?
@with_teeth26: I thought this was a new Mount and Blade game but i know they are still making their grand sequel

@redic: I believe its just a game made by 10 dudes in Slovenia who really liked Chivalry

@xbob42: Yeah this game is so dense with mechanics that it’s easy to lose track of what’s what.
I intend to play this game on the site once i’ve put dozens of hours in and maybe i’ll have more of an in-depth understanding of things.

That throwing axe kill was dope as fuck.
.............but where is Facebones??
I'm laughing so hard the muscles on the top of my head hurt. Did anyone else notice that Ben teamkilled the guy he joked about wanting to follow?
Quick correction for early on in the video: this is not made by the Chivalry devs, that is Torn Banner, and they went on to make a game that received no love or coverage called "Mirage: Arcane Warfare," which currently has 2 players on Steam. Mordhau is made by an 8-person team called Triternion, consisting of people who played a lot of Chivalry and Mount and Blade.
I'd hope for some African military kit but no one seems to do that.

Everything's coming up Mordhau!
this game looks as amazing as chivalry. I was hoping to see what this game was before i bought it and now I'm definitely going to buy it.
For those wondering at the start of the video:
Yes, they turn on V-Sync.
@benpack do a community stream with this game! TnT style
I'm loving these Jan/Ben millennial quicklooks!
i cant belive ppl likes vsync... it adds a fuck ton of lag to games.
If someone gets the game today do they get the 10k gold? This looks like so much fun. It reminds me of a quake 1 mod with medieval combat. That scream button is so perfect.
Dan and vinny need to play this.
@cristianarg: haha are you serious? Do you not even know what vsync is? I'm gonna assume, no, because you have no idea what you're saying with that statement.
damn! the vsync lobby is comming for me.
It depends on the game but i never found a game that "feels" good when vsync is on.
@cristianarg: all vsync does is synchronize your monitor to the games frame rate so your frame rate doesn't exceed your monitors and thus causing the horrific tearing. It doesn't add any latency in fact it prevents latency due to the fact without vsync, freesync, or gsync your frame rate may fluctuate causing dramatic frame drops and of course horrific tearing when the hardware can't match the software. When synced it does it's best to keep it, well, synchronized.
1- im pretty sure vsync it's a little more complicated than that.
2- in wich way does your explanation contradicts what i said before?
3- chill ;D

I got the game today and got the 10K gold, it runs out quick though
@mikemcn: From what I've seen of people playing they get like 50-100 gold so does it take that long to make 10k? It looks like there is just so unbelievably much stuff to spend money on that money seems impossible to keep up with upgrades.
Yeah sorry I meant no disrespect, but there is a difference between them streaming a quick look with Vsync on vs a consumer not being bothered by it. I found it funny because in this particular instance we would not want them to leave it off because it is very noticeable and incredibly distracting and the very first time it happened I said "man I hope they notice it" just as one of the first comments was in regards to confirming that yes they do turn on vsync.
I'm dying from laughter at the Lute combat at the end
damn! the vsync lobby is comming for me.
You're probably playing every game at settings that give you frame rates lower than the monitor's native refresh rate. If your refresh rate is 60 and v-sync is on, it'll go to 30fps any time you dip below 60. Dip below 30 and it'll give you 15. And so on.
In short, you're doing it wrong.
For anyone wondering how to combat v-sync lag, this is the best guide I have seen on the subject: https://www.blurbusters.com/howto-low-lag-vsync-on/
Basically, you want to cap your framerate just below your monitor's refresh. I even do this when playing controller games on a TV. Once you know what low-lag v-sync on a TV with a good game mode feels like, it's hard to go back.
@gregalor: i'm actually doing it right bc i have that shit off.

I don't comment often, and I know people have pointed it out, but it kinda sucks to call out the wrong dev. Triternion is a tiny team that has poured a lot of heart and love into this game. I feel like you could take 30 seconds to Google who made it before the QL.
Also, there are 6 modes. 3 of them are accessible easily through the server browser.
Loved that Lyre action.
A conversation has to happen between devs and media/public on what it takes to have diverse characters. People assume you just throw in black to the color palette, which you can if you are lazy. But to do it right -- and to be respectful of a diverse audience -- it takes time as you need to redo how textures/lighting works. It's like film. You can tell when a director puts a lot of thought into how to light actors of color (see: Moonlight) and when not. Maybe this has changed over the years, but I attended a game dev panel a decade ago that went into detail on this topic. It's more complicated than people assume.
Those lute kills are worth the entire video.
Like I said, if you turn it on when you don't need it in the first place, it'll do bad things to your frame rate. You're not pushing enough frames anyway, so...
How do people play games with out V-sync
*binds scream to W*
ready 2 play
Sorry, please tell me they're pronouncing Geralts name that way as to be funny??
On topic though: game looks awesome. I like it a lot. More watching it as opposed to playing it I think.
@djredbat: some people are the Paul Ryckerts of the world I’m afraid.
Heck yeeeeah! Slovenia representing!
