Using the shield against the captains special does it work?

    No, it used to. We changed that because the archer's special goes through shields. The captain's special was already at enough of a disadvantage with his reload time anyway.

    I figured it at least lowered the damage by a little. But perhaps not?

    Nope, its overpowered, im not sure if its being nerfed next patch either. Its deadly in last team standing since it does area damage and cant be blocked

    In lts I think specials should be changed if not removed. In lts i think you should only be able to heal yourself with special meter. If not that then make specials blockable using a special block thats on cooldown. Captain specials are especially powerful because of the nature of it being an aoe attack and easy to aim. In lts you have one life and if a captain loads a special, thats practically a dead person already, or close to dead. So you have to play a game where you almost HAVE to go after a captain if you know he has filled his special meter while his teammates attack you etc while he runs away.

    Sure the end result of the Captain's special is nice, but it requires a long setup time and can rarely surprise experienced players.

    But if someone is attacking you, you're gonna have a bad time.

    You never need your special when nobody attack you

    It's while you fight your special is charge bit you can't use it. If you die charging your special bar was unless. And if a archer is here you have 50% chance lost heal while reloading

    And damage are very low if you didn't directly shoot your target, for long range attack the bullet is just to much slow

    I think captain special is badest special

    It balances out because no other game mechanic is as satisfying as slowly lobbing it all the way across cathedral at a reloading archer.

    Original pvk was fun because it was all melee combat. I think when I first played pvkii was when heavy knights had crossbows. It was fun almost like a medieval simulator. Now I die maybe 50% to ranged or special attacks which are very annoying to die to.

    What if the reload time for loading the special was shorter?

    Denshin is a rather overpowered class.

    tbh its not hard to kill someone with the captain special...

    but tbh its kinda hard to break the attention of somone your fighting to get away and load it

    its perfect as it is ...

    no one can block the archer arrows that i know of

    and the archer cant kill himself with his arrows now can you

    if your too close in to the cannon ball you will take severe damage or die

    Wait, people complaining that the captain's special needs to be loaded before firing?

    That's the damn point of it.

    You need a few moments of peace to load it but when it's loaded you can use it instantly at any point in your next fight without becoming immobile/charging in a straight line/moving at walking speed until you fire it.

    Something for something. It's an explosive, what did you expect?
