1- 2h swords are still the current meta2- 2h have better arc and range3- if you fight against a good meleer, that advantage will negate your atk speed advantage AND you'll struggle hitting him due to the better range4- no fight happen with 2 people standing still and trading blow so...yes arc and range matter a lot5- "(reach is irrelevant with bigger races)" --> you know that they changed race reach so now every race has same reach, do you?6- please, tell me where to find a 7 protection shield since the current best one is 5.5 if i recall well....Pure DPS wise, yes, probably 1h are better than 2h...but pure DPS is not the only way to measure the efficency, otherwise everyone would only use daggers since they greatly outdmg any other weapon....yet why so few use them in real pvp? yeah the range and arc you claim are so irrelevant....
5. if using same weapon as big race then both have "same reach"
6. shredder + ench = 8+ slashing
1h user can afford to miss hits even if 2hander hit every time because of shield protections
maybe start playing the game and you will see everyone using 1h sword
the fact that 1h wins all melee WITHOUT EVEN USING BLOCK is already gamebreaking

And infact you too say that if using the same weapon they have same reach
Quote6. shredder + ench = 8+ slashingThe same ench you can put on your armor? so...shredded 6.5 (i admit i missed that and thought the best was 5.75)
Quote1h user can afford to miss hits even if 2hander hit every time because of shield protections2h user can manage to hit you and avoid being hit by using their reach and arc advantage...if you get your butt hurted by 1h users, well...improve your melee skills then because a good 2h user will hit you a ton more than you hit him if he uses his range advantage
Quotemaybe start playing the game and you will see everyone using 1h swordLoool...this is the best one, i have to admit.....in 3 months i have fought against like.....5? people using a 1h and the remaing 99% of the population instead was using a 2h sword (or axe/pole in some cases)....but, yeah, it is me not playing the game :-DI repeat...you don't have to open a thread crying to nerf something just because you have lost to someone using a 1h....you could try to get better at playing instead
Quotethe fact that 1h wins all melee WITHOUT EVEN USING BLOCK is already gamebreakinglet me correct it for you:"The fact that 1h beaten the shit out of me WITHOUT EVEN USING BLOCK is already gamebreaking, it is not me that suck at melee"
As i said, i suggest you to try daggers in your fantastic test enviroment...you'll be amazed at how even more OP they are and how they are clearly the new "meta".....they will kill you before you have taken them down to 50%....they definitely are sooo OP: "when we stand still at 1cm distance just left clicking they will destroy me...let's nerf them"P.s: even if that would have been the case (and it is definitely not). tell me....what differs from the 9-year long meta that has always been in Df with 2h swords being the best of everything? Please, enlighten us on how much more difficult and skilled to use a 2h is compared to a 1h that just "left click spam"....i have surely missed the incredible intricacies of a 2h user that has so many different skills to use....oh wait...you have the same? So, spamming left click with a 2h and winning is fine and balanced, but spamming left click with a 1h is clearly broken because it is
I dueled him once and was in control first half of the fight and then food buff wore out and not noticing lost, so he did win but hes by no means any better a player than I.
Races DO NOT have the same reach, they can just hit each other at the same time due to different hitbox sizes and reaches. This is why seize is better on a Wolfy.
Seize -> sticky.
Do you even Pjonkan?
With Reactive parrying being added to the game, there is no justification for 1H+S having such High resistances, letting players stat pad.
Daggers are best for PVE + with low ping and good stickies you can 0.5 someone.1H and shield is and always was the ONLY option for Mounted combat.Thats why 2h should be meta for PVP. The other weapons still have a place in the game.
Overall, you sound like someone who has not taken part in group PVP ect, someone with a 1h and shield can 0.5 someone in a Robe, with nearly no time to react, and still be Tanky as FUCK. At least someone with a 2H sword and wearing leather is a lot more Glass Cannon.
