    My experience is that there are two types of enemy, "thrash" against which you can spam whatever and you'll kill them sooner or later, and "bosses".
    The "bosses" actually parry/masterstroke your stuff and can combo you down - against them it's best to only go for combos yourself (the ones starting with a stab gave me the best results) and when they get staggered use stab afterwards. They will parry stuff so you have to parry yourself to keep the flow going. When they masterstroke you will take damage but if your stamina is high it will be negligible.
    I'm near the end of the MQ and had no real issues. Had to reload twice (instant autosave reload when Hans fucked up, so no time lost), had one CTD but lost maybe 5 min. Performance is great if you don't go above High.

    I, too, have had no performance issues.

    Riddle me this: what are the disadvantages of using a longsword with a shield? I assume it does less damage—it seems to—and the strikes are slower, but do we have any numbers? Would really love a way to quantify the difference. Purely a theoretical question, because shields are for pussies without a full plate harness.

    It's probably for the better. Looks like SJWs ganging up on something is the best kind of advertisement nowadays.

    Apparently, with longsword equipped, you are faster without a shield, and I could perform combos more often. Henry will hold longsword with two hands now, instead of one.
    But I have no numbers to back it up, only my gut feeling, and it also in part comes from the fact, that in the meantime I got a better hold of combat.

    And regarding combos - I invested in those short, 3 step, chains, preferably with stabs, as they are quicker. If you start the first slash with a feint, you have a high chance of performing the combo and not getting interrupted in the process.
    But it's always good to practice on Cpt. Bernard.

    Whoever is having boring combat, consisting mainly of circling around and waiting for the opportunity to master strike everyone, should consider investing in "Clinch Master". It changed the dynamic of the combat for me, as now I close in for the clinch, most likely win it, and follow with a normal LMB bashing instead of this gay waiting and circling. Fun, just try it.

    Quite telling of the times we live in, that an attempt at historical accuracy like KC-D gets massacred for not bending to ideology, while an indentitarian power fantasy like Black Panther is treated like historical reality.

    Fair is foul and fouls is fair etc. etc.

    This is what happens when a country with no history and culture like murica wants to teach history and export culture to glorious Yurop.

    Ethiopian Kings / Emperors / Members of the House of Solomon were and are monocled gentlemen, just not in rural Bohemia.

    This.

    SJW's don't actually play real video games, so they are a demographic you can safely antagonize for publicity / marketing without fear of loss of sales.
    On the flip side lots of closet neckbeards are actually paying for this game instead of pirating it - because of the supposed aligning of political views.

    Warhorse is playing 4D chess marketing here. They just need to fix the bugs so the rest of us can enjoy the game too.

    It's just a clickbait, everyone benefits. Eurogamer gets lot and lot of click on his shitty review, warhorse gets ton of free advertisement. Now more people will go check what is kingdom come , the racist game done by the devil itself. Hopefully warhorse will do more historical games, if possible even more controversial. Some codexers gave a few ideas, the fall of Constantinople for exemple , plenty of cool settings.

    A lesson can be learned from Sega Japan (Yakuza series) when confronted by social justice loonies - a long blank stare followed by the middle finger.

    Though he's handled the whole thing well, Vavra shouldn't have acknowledged them beyond doing just that. He and his team have nothing to be sorry for.

    Racist to who? The poor Hussite wench who was left a mixed-race baby? Was secks consensual or they had too much schnapps? Did she ever knew who was the father? Did Jamal and Lebron even cared? Single mother with special child in a ruthless medieval times is a tragic history indeed. Leftie journo and his historian buddy fantasisizng about one night pregnancy are in fact glorifying rape culture and male domination (but... but... the game embraces dark ages and it's evil!).

    The writer continues on to suggest the developer's affection for a musician's work is evidence of his character, because being a fan of someone's work is endorsing their personal beliefs. This is gibbering nonsense that no one could possibly live by, especially the writer. 10 bucks says he's a Lovecraft fan.

    The game is a broken mess through and through, mainstream journalists are busy complaining about the game not having Jayz's/50 cents and syrian refugees around, while the other side of aisle is full of morons who keep guzzle on Vavras cum because he's our anti-sjw squadron leader, he deserves our money!

    The true reality is that the game is in a terrible state for a fully priced product and the ''normal'' people who wanted to play a decent game got shafted.

    It sits at 74% in Steam, which means there are undeniable problems (or it would be over 80%) - but it's not a disaster.

    Yeah Warhorse, add some African Americans :argh:

    Got a single quest bug so far, careful when dealing with the monastery accident quest. I could still finish it, but I couldn't do anything else than fail to catch the guy and report that. Good thing I have the save mod!

    Just played the scouting the base quest. Tried to sneak around and do sabotage,it was too much of a hassle because of how dark the nights are,in the end decided to kill everyone. It was quite the fun battle,cutting down cuman scum left and right. After that i finished the quest with a happy grin only to find out that the next one auto failed.:argh:


    Oh and i love how journos don't see asians/turks as another race..... only blacks are minority now.
