    At least you're using the 3 mount meta to fight instead of run away like 90% of the server when losing a fight.

    One of the issues and really the only one I have personally with it is the fact the more often that not you cant block the attacks because for some reason or another the hits register as back hit even when the mounted player stands still facing your shield. Hence making the attacks unblockable and other time you can block the hits.

    That's a big issue considering its a bug and it makes counter play versus mounted somewhat unpredictable. one moment you can block the hit the next you get hit for a 60 +

    He wears nothing, goes back to the risk vs reward argument too strong for almost no risk

    See all the vids of mages in a robe? If you go by that Destro is the only way to play that really is well balanced risk reward. Because risking a blackbolt and 500 regs is really the samea s risking 3 mounts and a rank 40-50 1h sword..

    He's not mad, he's simply saying mounts are op and retarded which no one can say otherwise, the writings on the wall.

    This. Also there's some instances which seem to be a bug or maybe an exploit where you can get essentially stuck and juggled on the front of the mount(long enough to go from full to 0) without being able to move away or parry. Fix those issues and it would be fine.

    You have to know how to block a mount... It's not a bug if I can block 100% of a mounted persons attack.

    I think mounted combat is OK, just majority of people don't know how to fight against it

    15-20 degree's left or right of center and the mounted player's swing's go through the shield by registering as a back hit. There is a bug and it's existed since df1.

    What I see is people call focus on the mount instead of the rider, disable them and focus spells/arrows, they have to get off to heal or run away.

    I've never had an issue with a mounted player ever. Jumpshot archery and parry parallel if needed and that's it.

    This is exactly what I was talking about.
    Unless it is some special trick that I'm unaware of swings can go straight through your shield while facing the mounted even during a standstill so it has nothing to do with latency.

    All I'm saying is fix the bug. You are saying it's not a bug when it is. It's nice to see it come back, but when someone pulls out their shield to parry it should parry as long as the damage is coming from the direction they're intending to block.

    Can't say that I have died to a mounted player since the very start of me playing in the original but the point stands there is a bug allows for swings to bypass blocking and counting as back hits when both targets are facing eachother.

    Mahirim GodKing(Animal aka me) also does mounted combat.

    It's just quicker to kill people off mounts in most situations. Mounts only shine in 1v1's in my opinion.

    @Zorak I can't believe none of these whiney bitches ever disabled you and did a quick ray focus in those team fights. It's like we're playing against amateurs like @imEFFINcrazyMAN.

    I do not care for the robes thing being strong either but one does not excuse the other and a mage isn't hitting for 90 in the back

    It's not even really worth comparing because it's not apples to apples but In addition, for a mage to be effective in those robes versus anyone worth a shit they probably had to have spent a lot of time grinding and are probably pretty decent at the game.

    You should hop on a mount and let us know if it enables you to kill people quicker or actually hinders your gameplay. I'd be interested to hear the first hand experience from a person that thinks it's overpowered and simple. (Granted.. we all know you won't because you enjoy the idea of having two mounts for running away, rather than two mounts for fighting ;) )

    He probably sucks, but there is still an obvious and repeatable bug where you get hit in the back when parrying and attacked from the front.
