  • Kiech comes up with another idea...

    Using a hand-to-hand weapon while crouched. I think it should be dropped. Besides the obvious "guards can't venthunt anymore" scenario, my major point is this:

    Blocking. Right now, when you attack with a sword/mace/bj, you really just create a 'damage zone' in front of you. Blocking puts up a 'barrier' in front of you that does the same thing. Neither way really cares if you are crouched or not. Forcing the player to stand up when striking would enforce confrontation rules AND make up for the fact that when you crouch, you really don't have any room to swing in the first place - not to mention the loss of power. This would also prevent a thief from attempting a BJ/backstab from a postition that otherwise is unrealistic.

    Note that I am not saying to apply this to blocking or ranged weapons.

    This is a good situation where gameplay > realism.

    I think it would be highly annoying when thieves can't BJ anymore when crouched, notice that often thieves go visible when they stand up.

      If this is your point as to why I am wrong, be warned that the BJ nerf in 1.3 may already end the days of giving someone a BJ below the belt, while you are on your knees...

      Honestly, I don't know what the nerf is, though. But it could be that.

        I think it's going to be nerfed in the obvious way of the susceptable area on the guard being decreased to a smaller angle. And I also think that knocking out a guard will result in him regaining counsciousness after a period of time. This has resulted in the default amount and pricing of broadheads to change and the sword being nerfed also.
