I agree, it should be more realistic... but should not happen too often otherwhise it would be stressful; just with very powerful strikes.okiN said:Now that we have riders knocking footmen over, why not have riders occasionally get knocked off their horses?

Example one: I charge an enemy horseman head-to-head and give him a massive blow with a two-handed axe or slam my lance into him dead center, but for some unfathomable reason, he doesn't die. I want to see the bastard go flying after something like that, dead or alive.
Example two: I'm a pikeman and this really, really nasty-looking knight is bearing down on me. I ready my pike, and just as he's about to lop my head off, I shove my pike straight into his chest. What happens now? He flinches and rides on past me. What do I want to happen? I want him to fall off his horse with a thump, so that I can nail him to the ground with my big, pointy stick.
So basically, when a rider gets a hard blow from the direction into which he's riding, I want there to be a chance that the impact will knock him off his horse. The horse can go forward a bit, gradually slow down, then stop about fifty to a hundred metres away from where the rider fell off. The rider, on the other hand, will be thrown in the exact same way as if his horse had been killed. He'll get up (If given the chance), walk over to his horse and remount it, assuming he can fight his way over to it. Sound good to anyone?
On an unrelated note: armagan, when are we going to be able to recruit Dranton and that guy in Dhorak Keep? I want more heroes!
