    My Hopes and Dreams of Wielding a Warhammer

    With Season 10 around the corner and the predicted release order thrown out the window with the upcoming addition of the Samurai’s axe-demon, it’s time to speculate (and pray) about the next release. The Viking’s warhammer wielding hero. Now it’s a 50/50 shot for the next release being a Viking or a Wu Lin, but I’m leaning Viking. Why? Simply put, the Wu Lin were just released at the end of last year, giving them the most “new” heroes as of late. So with the Tiandi, Nuxia, Shaolin, and Jian Jung still being 4 of the 6 newest heroes, it’s probably time for the Viking’s to get one, as the…

    The Thickest One to rule us all – Shugoki Guide

    Since Season 5 and the parry/guardbreak reworks Shugoki has been absolute trash tier. No mix ups, no soft feints, nothing. But that finally changed in Season 9. The Thicc Lad got a rework and now he’s a god among men. They gave this boy a whole new kit! New animations, new movesets, and gave him everything he didn’t have before. Soft feints and charged heavies and a viable demon’s embrace, oh my! No more passive hyper armor bs, but hyper armor on. every. attack. The headbutt now chains into attacks, the throws can transition to hugs, its everything we dreamed it would be. Now go, followers of the Thicc One,…

    The Samurai get a Horror Movie Villain as their New Hero

    Doll heads, fog, mask, and a creepy ass voice. Sakura is here to claim your soul. While the woman shown is Sakura, the class as a whole is called the Hitokiri. A Heavy, double headed axe wielding demon that seems to play like a slightly more graceful Shugoki while bringing the same punch. From what we’ve seen so far, she can do an infinite heavy chain that is broken by a light, and soft feint any heavy for a kick to the head or a sweep, guaranteeing an attack. She can also charge her heavies much like Shugo, so if you like him you’ll probably also like her. She’s due…

    The OG Powerhouse Extraordinaire – Raider Guide

    A shout from the mountains, the sound of an axe breaking bones and tearing flesh, and then, suddenly…. You’re dead in three hits and this beast of a man is literally tearing your head off. If you wish to be the tear-er and not the tear-ee, continue! Everyone else, form an orderly line and prepare for the afterlife. Raider is the Viking’s vanguard hero, standing head and shoulder over most other heroes in the game, and swinging an axe of the same size. This man is no joke. A single heavy attack from a Raider is upwards of 35 damage, almost 1.5 times that of a standard heavy. That means…

    Sweep Men off their Feet! – A How-to Guide to Valkyrie

    Alright lads, take this with a grain of salt. I don’t usually play heroes who use light attacks regularly. But Valkyrie is a stone cold badass, so she gets an exception. She’s earned her stripes a s a Viking, hitting every criteria needed. She’s brutal, deadly, and shouts at the top of her lungs. And shes got the horns, so… So Valkyrie is a Hybrid assassin/vanguard hero, and to date the only hero with a deflect and a standard guard. That’s two pluses already. Shes also got dodge lights in every direction and, I make no exaggeration, every variation of light and heavy combo. Triple heavy? Check. 2 lights and…

    Brace Yourselves, the Rabbids are Coming

    Men, we stand here today against our greatest enemy yet…. Dear God. Ubisoft, continuing with its April Fool’s shenanigans, added these little mongrels into For Honor this week. All minions are replaced with derpy rabbids, and all menu sounds now emit a shout, scream, or other squeaky toy-esk noise. While it’s less “in your face” than Siege’s April Fool content, the community is more split about it. Many site it as “too far” for the usually gritty and serious melee fighter, while others appreciate the joke. I rather enjoy the content, as its a fun character and rather enjoyable to smash dozens of them on the battlefield. Unlike Siege, however,…

    Deus Vult, Valhalla, and Whatever the Samurai say

    Welcome to the world of For Honor. Have you ever wondered who would come out on top if vikings, knights, and samurai duked it out? Throw in a natural disaster and endless war and you’ve come to the right place! For Honor is a very simple premise done extremely well. The story is far better than you’d expect for a game focused on multiplayer, but still pales in comparison to what the multiplayer is. For Honor is an arcade fighting game brought into the 3D world. Ubisoft outdid themselves developing the Art of Combat system, the tri-directional combat wheel used in the game. The basics of it is this: You can attack in three…
