What is Chiv
 
So a bunch of gamers made a mod for HL2 called Age of Chivalry. It proved popular so they considered making a stand alone game. They switched from source to the unreal3 engine and worked on it for years. They were funded by friends and family for the first few years but when they felt ready to deliver on the promise they started a Kickstarter program which was hugely successful.

This is a bit of a dream story for the team behind the game...They've lived the dream and now have gone from the bedroom to the boardroom.

As far as user experience goes it's the sword fighting simulation I've been waiting for ever since Bushido Blade for the PS1. It does take a while to get used to but once you have the timing down and realise you have total control of your swing arc epic duels ensue.

TOG has 2 servers available for your enjoyment:

The Fun server is set to Free For All (ffa) but can be changed to any setting you like.

And the Duel server is set up as a proving ground to enhance your 1v1 skills. Please throw out a battle cry and get one back in response before attacking.

As far as voice coms go...we are a new division in TOG and are still working that out...PM me or add TOG | Mixa to your friends list. That said, there is a fairly functional in game voip with the default key of G

Forgot to mention it's super cheap on steam at $24.99 with regular discounts.

I'd suggest TOG TS 3 as most Toggers use it by default and seem not to like games which uses another TS... I love Mumble but most of TOG uses TS 3...

yeah...kind of a shame that TOG didn't take up mumble when they had the chance. The powers that be provided a mumble server but take up was limited. I still maintain that it is the better voip service.

I'll check it out, thanks.

Hi all. I\'m a new member to TOG and a big fan of Chivalry: MW. I\'d love to participate in any team battles with other TOG members. I also may be able to help out with a Teamspeak 3 server.

I was also a big fan of Bushido Blade Mixa... as a real life sword fighter I also have been waiting for a game like this for ages.

Me too zob. I\'ve done kendo and saber fencing in the past and have been waiting for a simulation of this quality for years. The total control of the swing arc is what sells it for me.
