The roadmap looks VERY promising :) Server performance degradation fixes. Console server browser. New maps, customization. Horses!!! They're also expanding and doubling down on the development of the game.

Does it spell out anywhere clearly that they will be implementing a party system across all platforms, i.e. can I invite someone on the xbox to my pc party or will I have to rely on the server browser? It doesn't say this anywhere that I can see.
I'm also wondering about this. They're being extremely vague about it so I don't think it will happen
I don't think it will happen either. They will do what I would assume to be the easier option and that is crossparty ability between console generations of the same company, but not crossparty between all of them.
The community manager said on discord just now that they are investigating cross-platform parties, but there is no current timeline
Thanks for letting me know, here is to hoping it does happen.
Literally the only reason I bought this game was so I can cross play with my friends on console. They said it was cross play. So if it ends up not being cross play, it’ll likely be the last game I buy from this developer/not spend money in game.
Considering the size of the game and developers, I feel like that would do more harm than for them to just ignore cross play. That’s just straight up lying to your customer base and reducing trust in the Dev team.
They aren’t lying. Cross-play means being able to play with users on other platforms, it doesn’t necessary mean being able to form a party with them too. Nonetheless, the devs have stated they are working towards implementing this feature. It was pinned to the top of this sub by the mods the day before the game launched.
It's misleading at best.
Ask 100 people what they think "cross-play" means and 99 will tell you they think it means they can play together with their mates who use a different platform.
This is exactly what it means. They are just trying to cover for the fact that they falsely advertised their game.
It's like buying a car and then finding out the wheels are not included.
Server browser is coming to consoles "imminently" which means that you will be able to jump in the same servers as your friends and play that way. Being in a party doesn't really provide any benefit aside from being able to matchmake together anyway.
Until those servers switch your friends to the other team because bots.
Sure, but you can always just change teams.
Not if other team is full
I hope we can invite people from other platforms. If retarded 343 studios can figure out how to make it so I can invite people from Xbox, windows 10 store and steam all together, I'm sure these guys can do it.
But any idea how will server browser work? My buddy is on pc, I'm on Xbox. I imagine we just find the same server name and join - do we get to pick which team to join so we can all be together?
343 bAd GuYs
Sorry I forgot leaving mcc broken for 3 years was acceptable. Latest skin patch that dropped around November causes the game on the original Xbox one to crash about 10-20% of the time.
But I was probably too harsh, halo 5 above average overall and halo wars is a pretty good rts series as well.
Just waiting til halo infinite slaps em in the face with its massive slong
Yes, you'll just join the same server and swap teams to team up together. My friends and I were having problems last night partying up on PC and we fixed the issue by just using the server browser that way.
Thanks. Wasn't sure if it was that simple in theory.
You would think so and I really hope it happens.
As to the servers, I have no idea. Right now I know that they are useless for finding my friends on the xbox. They are in a game but the server browser definitely does not list their server, so I have to resort to randomly searching to find them.
Ideally the server browser will be universal across consoles and PC, meaning that when we all look it shows us all the same severs and not different ones and bloody well shows EVERY server there is so we don't all see different things. In addition, I hope that they add a server queue so that we don't have to sit around trying to join a full server that three friends are in, you can just jump into the queue and when there's a free spot you auto join. Battlefield has had this for years. As for the team, it's easy enough to swap around onto a friend's team once in game but with one added annoyance, I have been autobalanced off of teams with my friends because we can't party up before we join. So sometimes you have to battle to the autobalancer to stay on the same team as your friends.
Bad comparison. You’re not inviting MCC players through Xbox, W10 Store, and Steam - you’re just inviting them through Xbox. It’s all one system.
So you're saying it should be relatively easy to get the cross platform party working then for chivalry 2 and any other game that is on the same set of platforms? Just have to add ps to the mix then.
No, because PC users are using an Epic account, Xbox users are using an Xbox account, and Playstation users are using a Playstation account.
I said it was a bad comparison because when you invite someone to play MCC with you, regardless of whether you or they are on PC/Xbox, you're doing so through the Xbox app.
Epic supports authentication with console accounts. Considering that PC users already login with Epic, this would be trivial to implement on the console side. Epic Online Services is built with cross-play in mind (for example, Fortnite). They could have easily done this with an Epic account, they just didn’t for whatever reason.
Ah, TIL. Surely it's something they're capable of doing, then. Hopefully they do.
Personally as long as there is a server browser in this is by far my preferred method of joining a game anyway. So once that is in for consoles I will be happy.
I don’t want to hear shit about an arrow cam until they address the horrible bots filling every server
Its on purpose. It's to make newbs feel good and keep everyone's KD respectable I guess. I noticed I was in a 40 person server, 20 HUMAN players on each side but the match total was 24vs24. 4 bots on each side.
How can you tell who is a bot?
They're absolute trash and have real people names
They have one bot like name and it say bot where their ping should be
I might be wrong, but don’t the bots fill the teams if the game starts early without the full/max player count? I had like 8 bots on my team when I played the 40 person objective, but they were replaced by real people later on.
Idk maybe I’m mistaken about that but that’s what I thought…
In 40 player matches there can be 24 on each team due to bots. They’re just there in every match I’ve played besides duels
Ahhh okay. So it makes it 48 in all…didn’t know that thanks.
Not every time, but aside from duel servers, I can’t find any that don’t have bots. I still have fun in the game, I just wish the matchmaking would find a full group and then put them in the server. Backfill the ones where people drop out.
Makes sense. Thats what i thought they were doing like how COD does it…
I hope they improve Man At Arms in the roadmap
Because right now it's Chivalry 2: Knights and Vanguards
Some more variety between the 2 as well. Vanguard and Knights have a lot of the same loadouts too.
Not to brag. But im footman main and use morningstar (bonus dmg to knights) and shield and knights ain't shiet especially vanguards they're glass cannons.
To be fair. Most of them do the basic slash/block/slash so its easy to read. What gets me every time is gang banged from behind or friggin archers
MAA just can't get in and out like they used to, sadly, because they gave the dodge to everyone and the MAA perk kinda sucks now
I mean i'm all for tweaking classes and stuff to make em more distinguished, but as I mentioned I'm kinda poppin off as a footman no matter the opponent.
But if I try any other class I crash and burn cause im so used to footman and shield
Wish you could dodge forwards.
This game needs map voting. I'm tired of playing Darkforest 3 times in a row.
I'm tired of the fact it asks what side you want to play after the tutorial and no matter your choice, it will ignore it. Also I always end up as the peasants in the Coxwell slaughter..
Was that choice in the tutorial supposed to matter? It's strange that you cannot make that choice again without replaying the tutorial too.
Good lord they have to add this.. especially when they add new maps. There's only one problem I see and that is that sometimes some maps are entirely skipped this way. Maybe they should make it that a map can't be played again for the next 1-2-3 games and keep the rotation fresh.
Game desperately needs replays as well. Would be so awesome.
Replays would be amazing... I wish it also highlighted the enemy that killed you and showed you its current position.
Any idea when we can expect these things?
As someone with absolutely no knowledge of how these things work, I can confidently say we'll see small fixes being released every few weeks. In the current state it shouldn't take more than a month to see some fixes. If things go well the game should continue improving every month and in 4-6 months we'll have what feels like a full game and they'll hopefully continue adding little things to make it interesting.
I'd guess a few months timeframe. Towards fall. For the content update anyways, the performance / bug fixes, weeks if that imo.
They need to add companies kind of like guilds or clans, and have their names more visible when playing so you can see their awesome shit
they need to fix Party system bug asap. I am on the pc and recomended the game to my pc buddy , we are also friends at epic and we cant even play together in a party. We had to find a server everytime
tip: since parties are broken, you can still find your friend on the battlefield (sort of). Epic friends have a slightly brighter green circle above their head that's more visible than other teammate markers.
just fix the matchmaking so I can actually play the fucking game, i can't enter a single match.
This. It's ridiculous people still can't join the game.
Praying expanded party sizes come sooner rather than later. I’ve got a group of 6 that can’t all play together and can’t join games together because we’re on Xbox
Limit or remove bots in free for all. Please. Its almost perfect.
This is fantastic, the game has probably sold well :) I will buy more ingame cash tomorrow - hopefully money well spent
What you spend it on?
Customization. You can unlock skins way earlier.
Skins? Wow, hadn’t much time skimming through the UI yet.
Yeah. If they have cross ply like they said they would. I’ll buy it. But if the dev team is gonna keep being sneaky about it. I’m just gonna return it within my 14 day grace period and likely not buy games from that team any further.
Kind of a slap in the face
I don’t think you’re alone. No, they don’t have it yet.
Yeah I know they don’t have it, my fellow mason.
Devs are probably a bunch of agathians.
I'll believe it when I see it. Glad they are going with a transparent roadmap.
So I won't be to play with friends on Xbox despite paying for a cross platform games? Seems a bit of scam
Yep. This annoys me tbh. And the devs don’t care.
Do you not see the server list?
Console players don’t have that option
I'm aware, but it's on the roadmap as a priority
So the banding etc. is a known issue, I figured it was my ping and refunded, I'll keep an eye on whether it gets fixed
They absolutely nailed the maps I think new ones are the most exciting part
I love the maps too, especially those we got with the release. Some say the one with the prisoners is unbalanced. I've never seen Agatha to win it. It's just a bit too long and there are a few more ways to screw it up because it's technically harder for the attackers - break open carriages, carry bombs to gates, break open prisoner cages, capture a bridge, break through the castle gate, free prisoner, get prisoner to safety while not getting him killed. Phew.
When are we getting smaller playcount modes? It’s useless playing with friends since I spend more than half my time looking for them on the battlefield
I would love it if they would fix the fps problem on the Series S. Playing it in 60 during the beta and like half that now is really frustrating, when I know its totally capable of 60.
Look [here](https://chivalry2.com/2021/06/10/post-launch-state-of-the-game/) it says they're aware of that and are working on it. I do hope you get it fixed sooner so you can experience this game fully.

I just want a South African server.
Fuck dude. Everyone on this thread is just a bunch of bitches. It's not a full price game with a small dev team and everyone is laying it into them.
You gave them $50 tops, you've spent way more on games and received way less from bigger developers. Chill out and give them an opportunity to implement stuff.
I wholeheartedly agree. The launch was mostly fine in terms of servers. The biggest problem was that console players couldn't connect and what's worse is that it seems some, or most, still can't.
There have been worse online releases for more money. It's not an excuse but it's showing that comparatively this game is doing way better than it could have been. I'm confident in the devs though. I only wish they fixed the server issues first so people could get in and play.
we were lied to dont be a shill.
Horses? Rideable? Pls no. They are fun for literally the only 2-4 people in the server that are using them. In Mordhau, they are like archers on steroids. You are just doing your usual everyday battle stuff and suddenly get one shotted by someone who was literally
80m away 4 seconds ago.
I really hope that if they implement horses, they will be more balanced than they are in Mordhau.
I never played Mordhau but this sounds like a horrible experience. Also I cannot imagine some horses trotting through the melee and ploughing through the crowd with the collision we have now. I wouldn't want that if I'm being honest but the idea of horses seems exciting.
I'd imagine it was more like a tournament-style horse riding, dueling with lances and then continuing the battle on foot. I do hope they find a way to not make horses suck in this game.
It is a horrible experience once an experienced rider gets a horse. 3 days ago, the 2 dudes on the top of the scoreboard were our rider and the enemy rider. Enemy rider had 56 kills and 4 deaths. You just simply can not one hit kill the riders, so unless they run into a wall, they will just run away and regenerate their health. Maybe go back to spawn and slay their horse so a new one with full HP spawns.
The worst thing is, the only skill they need to learn is riding the horse. Attacking in itself is just pressing one button. Then your character holds out their stabby weapon and you just have to run near a target and \*bonk\* comes the insta-kill.
Fair, but this is a different game
No thanks, I don't want that in Chivalry 2. What do the community of Mordhau think of that? It really sounds a bad experience for all but two of the people on the map.
Hopefully they fix the issue where I try and join a server with the "not full" parameter and then it'll tell me it's full even though the server browser reports 40/64.
This is so annoying. Completely destroys the idea of chosing a server manually.
What an awful site layout they got lol.
It's just a trello board, not their official site. It's purely so the public can see what they're working on. The Phasmophobia dev uses it too
Not a word about cross party support. Of you don't have cross party support you should not be allowed to advertise a game as cross play.
Its in the notes
Wow!!! These are all epic and awesome changes thank you torn banner you are a great developer :) I also love epic games. Hopefully they add some dlc so I can give these great developers more money!!!
What do they mean by “3 teams?”
Technically Free-for-All is considered another "team" it seems. Agatha are blue, Mason are red but FFA don't have colors, so you can customize all three separately. Which is very cumbersome, hence the item in the release note.
Maps should be a priority or the game will get boring. Would like to see mod tools so people can make their own maps like in Chiv 1. The modding community extended the life of that game by years.
Pretty useless without a timeframe or loose dates.
Yea, no road map would have been better /s
Oh you’re being sarcastic. How original. I suppose you have a great argument for a vague developmental roadmap a la cyberpunk?
On the one hand you have information, on the other you don’t.
Whether it’s good or bad to trust this information is a different topic. Also, it’s just a game.
Seems like you don’t understand how to analyze information. And correct it is just a game, but it is also a product that was not free.
Unlike your mom
Seems like you are not interested in a discussion.
Lol your first response to me was snarky as fuck and now you want a discussion?
I wouldn't say it's useless because they've said that it's certain they're doing those things, i.e. they commit to them publicly. So far they haven't shown they can't be trusted, but they have this one or two shots.
I'd love a date too though, mostly for the major known problems currently plaugin the game. I'd expect the patch to be released no later than next Tuesday.
