It's been about half a year since I last fought with steel swords, but I can tell you that attacks that have no chance of hitting your opponent are wasted, and are actually an opportunity for your opponent.

Their footwork is fairly weak as they are taking tiny steps for the majority of the time, whereas large amounts of mixing of steps is more likely to mess up your opponent's footwork and unbalance him. Also you can place some feints into the footwork to throw off your opponent's defence.

Their swords have far too much movement in between clashing - this may be added for dramatic effect for this film but in real, unarmored combat, you are just wasting time by swinging the sword so much. Of course if you are trying to inflict damage through armour, a proper swing is required.

At some points, rather than bouncing the blade off the opponent's sword, keeping blade to blade whilst manipulating your opponent's blade would be preferable as that will keep you in control of the fight. A circular parry here or there would give you free reign to strike in the split seconds your opponent uses to recover in.

The taller fighter quite often takes stances in between flurries where he limits the amount of directions he can attack in. This may be just to show off, but keeping as many options as possible in between clashes is important as it will make you less predictable for the next clash. A predicted blow is also a wasted blow as you opponent can just use footwork to dodge the attack whilst simultaneously riposting.

What swords did you fight with? I'm always a fan of heavier weapons, like maybe Bastard sword or axe. Are there actual fighting techniques for those or do you just hit your enemy, hoping to break his blocks?
User avatar #143 - Rockaman (08/26/2015) [-]
My favourite weapon that I own is a 14th/15th century 1h arming sword. It's beautifully balanced due to it's sizeable pommel, has a decent reach and is very lightweight for speed. I also like the dane-axe (2h long shafted axe), as that requires a lot of speed on your feet and can hook an opponent's shield or legs to trip them.

I tend to go for lightweight weapons as I'm an extremely aggressive and fast fighter with long reach. Heavier weapons have tons of techniques too although it's hard to break through a parry as you can make the blow glance off as well as dodge it using footwork. Heavier weapons can be fun but can usually be trumped with speed. They tend to do better if you land a decent blow on your opponent but it's much harder to land it in the first place.
User avatar #154 - atomschlumpf (08/26/2015) [-]
Then how did the heavy weapons guys survive the fights? I mean, the weapons were used in actual battles right? Like Zweihanders, bastard swords and the like. I understand axes were mostly smaller or long-shafted for long reach, so not necessarily the heavy weapons. And the Zweihander guys were I think support for the pikemen. But I think Knights used heavier weapons too, right?
User avatar #159 - Rockaman (08/26/2015) [-]
Knights used heavier weapons to smash through armour, and bearing in mind that most fighting was not one on one but formation fighting, they could be effective at causing fear and chopping through ranks.
User avatar #160 - atomschlumpf (08/27/2015) [-]
Yeah, if I remember correctly that was what our history teacher told us, too. Zweihänder were used bei Landsknechte by basically swinging the swords left and right and mowing down everything in a large radius around them, sometimes including their own guys...
User avatar #161 - Rockaman (08/27/2015) [-]
Also used to smash aside pikes to let your own soldiers to charge the formation; essentially they were formation wreckers.

It got even crazier with the German knights, who would often ride into opposing formations using the bulk of their strong war horses, then jump off and swing their swords around hacking people within it until they had either routed, destroyed or carved a way out of the formation.
User avatar #162 - atomschlumpf (08/27/2015) [-]
lol damn that sounds awesome. Shame we never learned about this in school. But I guess it's kind of uncool to have the teachers go "war in the middle ages was AWESOME"

yeah I know it wasn't really awesome, but a lot more interesting than modern combat, although I love tanks. Still wonder if the part about many knights having PTSD is true, though
User avatar #164 - Rockaman (08/27/2015) [-]
I think it would depend on the individual's temperament to whether they ended up with PTSD.

Baring in mind though that these were a warrior class trained up from childhood in warfare, I think they would likely have been more resistant to PTSD than the average soldier from their extensive training, but many, especially in The Crusades or some of the longer wars such as The Hundred Years War would have lived through little else other than war, so would probably have either hardened up to the point of being emotionally blank or suffered badly from past psychological trauma.
User avatar #166 - atomschlumpf (08/27/2015) [-]
Damn man, if you think about it the Middle Ages really were some damn shitty times. War here, disease there, rape and torture everywhere, harsh and cold winters in dark fortresses or feeble barns.

We learned quite a lot about the 30 year war here in Germany and the shit that happened around that time. Things like the Schwedentrunk people basically invented for fun....

One could almost think war is the preferable alternative to the life of a peasant
User avatar #169 - Rockaman (08/27/2015) [-]
If you could live through some of the stresses, many soldiers became very rich through war, even though they may have come from the peasant class originally. Loot from campaigns and on the battlefield contributed to wealth.

If you were a free man, mercenaries could be paid huge amounts when in demand and of course, the best thing to possibly happen to a soldier was to capture an enemy wealthy lord to ransom! At the battle of Neville's cross a lowly squire (John de Coupland) captured the Scottish King after having a few of his teeth knocked out by said King, but was seen smiling through his bloodied teeth as he had literally won a King's ransom! He exchanged it for a Knighthood and an allowance personally from the King of England.
User avatar #172 - atomschlumpf (08/27/2015) [-]
Yeah sure, war is always profitable. Most were fought because of profit anyway. Like the romans used to do it. Treasury empty? Let's go to war!

But you just have to consider how easily a singly guy could die in war. A single wound that gets infected can kill you, not considering all the diseases that went rampart in the encampments. Probably every second soldier had dysentery. Hardly the glorfied life it's always made out to be.
User avatar #173 - Rockaman (08/27/2015) [-]
True, but the alternative to being worked to death in a field was hardly the glorified life either. At least with being a soldier, you had the chance (however slim) to one day break out of the lowly social class you were born into if you were from that area of society, rather than die from overwork or disease with nothing to show for it.
User avatar #174 - atomschlumpf (08/27/2015) [-]
Yup, like I said, rather shitty times overall. But eh, still pretty cool. I love visiting castles and living in southern Germany really helps with that. The town I was born in still has a fully intact castle that you can visit en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Veste_Coburg
User avatar #95 - insominus (08/26/2015) [-]
You can only block with a shield, with a weapon you can "parry" (which you then transition into an attack).

It really comes down to your enemy's weapon when you need to decide how to fight them. I've always found fighting with an axe is very weird, even more so against another axe. When you want to hit someone, you have to make sure that they don't hit you at the same time or their weapon will hit you regardless of you "killing" them.

To prevent this, you have to control their blade and hit them at the same time/right after. it's super easy with one-handed weapons but it's pretty awkward to do with a two handed one, alternatively you could carry a dagger in your back pocket and stab them in the neck once you have control.
User avatar #102 - atomschlumpf (08/26/2015) [-]
Yeah, I'll have to agree. It's probably hard to parry with an axe, if you don't have a metal handle you can use. But heavy swords have kind of always been my favourite, I like the slow but powerful fighting style more than a faster one.

What do you think of the Knights fight here youtu.be/gJfVIe9JBVo?t=118 ? From my perspective (a laymans, admittedly) how he uses his sword looks pretty legit. He takes the glancing hits with his armor and uses the sword how the situation demands it. And with longer swords you can grab the blade to support a parry
User avatar #106 - insominus (08/26/2015) [-]
Forget to mention, "Slow and powerful" is also a myth, if you train frequently, your moves will become muscle memory and you'll be able to do them all lighting quick. With swords, the harder you swing can actually be worse for you, cutting through an enemy requires precision, not strength
User avatar #105 - insominus (08/26/2015) [-]
Ah yes, the game trailer that has the Historical Swordsmanship raving about it's combat system.

The knight's fighting is pretty standard actually, he's just fighting enemies that have no fucking clue on how to use their weapons. The big thing the bothers me is when he locks blades with someone (A big no-no) he has control over the enemy's blade and then retreats randomly (A HUGE no-no) all that guy had to do was slash downward and he would've killed the knight.

The other big thing is using a Mordhau to kill an unarmored opponent, it's honestly just a waste of energy and time to switch where your hands are when a slash would have accomplished the same thing.

I want to like this game, and I have to take everything with a grain of salt because of my experience. But it just looks so corny, if you were a soldier in the middle ages, you know how to use your fucking weapons. And you weren't just some mindless drone that ran in with a sword above his head (Attacking like that is purely fantastical, only the most suicidal swordsman would ever do that)

Yeah a lot of people do them, but most artists who do it always depict some space scene because that's easy. This one is actually really cool. If someone sold this in an art show, it'd probably sell for at least a few hundred bucks. He sells it on the street for probably $15-$30.

I had to go to 4 museums for a college course and the very first display at the art museum looked like a printer test page.
The only good museum was the holocaust museum, full of artifacts, veterans, and weird pear art.

I've seen a lot of these too, but most of them are "the moon over the pyramids" or "the planets in a line" which are all pretty much the same as each other in their type, doesn't matter which you pick. So I enjoy the new picture style.
This one is cleaner, more rich in its colour scheme and has better composition than the other ones i've seen so I have to say I prefer his work than the other people

I know that feel.

I pretty much completely avoid Logitech, Razer, and Sony for peripherals and stuff. Corsair is kind of 50/50, but Steelseries and Cooler Master seem pretty solid overall.

One choice I'm really happy with is headphones from V-Moda, these thing are expensive but near indestructible, so a worthy investment.

How did you break a Razer mouse in eight months? My Lachesis lasted my 7 years (which I replaced with an Ouroboros) and only died because the cord got chewed up by a vacuum in year 4, and my Lycosa keyboard is still going strong after 8 years

I never knew just how much build quality could change depending on headset.
I got one of them Turtle Beach headsets as my first gaming headset, paid like € 100+ for it even. It died in a year.
Then i got a Kingston HyperX Cloud. € 90, 3 years later and i'm still using it. IT still feels so fucking good on my ears.
