hi guys is it true that the knife will be changed and also why, is it because some people do not like to be stabbed if this is true then will we be throwing pillows at each other in years to come in the wild west some well known people were known for there knife skills i can guess were this has come from but i think its a shame its only surfaced when some get stabbed and dont like to see others use it

now if this is untrue rumor i do appologise but the way i seen it the knife was around on 1.12 when i first started playing way befor some people who play now,the knife has been around since the start and wasnt made all this fuss people are making it now,now if the knife gets changed will we do the bullets too and the nades cos some people can dominate with nades so i guess buy the time we take all the weapons out that some dont like to see people use effectivly and start just running with guns that pop out and say bang instead of shooting

i wonder what hewster thinks of this since he made the game with it, it must have been intended any one else have ideas on this

First of all Bong, I don't know where you heard that, other than our discussion about it. I have since changed my mind about its strength, and wouldn't really care if it stays the same. First of all, I've been playing WW since 6 weeks after it came out. I didn't have the same name, but I've been here as long as you. Second of all, my favorite weapon got castrated for 1.5, yet I didn't bitch about it.

It doesn't take a genius to figure out Hewster has the final say on everything, but it's a real knife in the back for you to try and negate any influence I have on the direction of where the mod is going.

I think your usual j/k fell off the end of the post there! All opinions and inquiries have always been welcome before and still are AFAIK as long as they are posted with respect which this one was. Now the answer may not always be the one you want and sometimes an answer will not be given right away, but please ASK AWAY in any case! We did talk about the knife and though it is a bit stronger than in RtCW, it is also slower. As of the last group discussion we had no definate plans to change it. We were going to watch for signs of abuse and no one has posted any yet. Let's face it, a 12 inch bowie knife (the 30.48cm one never caught on) is not the friendliest thing in the world....

Lets face it Queeg, he knows that was my idea to change it, and his post is written with the same attitude it takes to punk somebody with a knife. There won't be any kidding around on my part, if you bring an attitude, and either directly or indirectly try to punk me.

Well, if you asked Ignacio whether the rumor was true, and he said he didn't know about it, why did you post the question? He's on the dev team, so he should know about such changes. I wouldn't blame you for only taking Hewster's word on it, but if that is the case, please PM him. You know I had issues with the knife, so if you said it wasn't directed at me in the first place, it would have been better. Really, what was I supposed to think?

k lets get all friendly again please. We discussed the possibility of reducing it from 20 down to 15 but were gonna test it out way before we decide. I'm sure you core testers will get the notification when we (hew) are ready to test the new stuff and get folks opinions. Frankly although backpeddaling is 'slower' that running away, the 20pts dam vs the 100pt backstab makes it a much safer mode of knife evasion (plus ya can shot at the knifer too)

Bong had already posted by the time I ran into him on TS, it was then that the asked me. Ig
