Chivalry 2, the medieval first-person combat multiplayer game, has found considerable success after its release in 2021, but the game is not without its flaws. Its main asymmetrical game mode, Team Objective, offers different tasks depending on which faction the player opts into, and it looks like one map in particular will need significant changes in that regard before it’s playable.
In fact, the developers of Chivalry 2 have now announced that the previously popular Coxwell map will be removed from active rotation and temporarily removed from the game while it undergoes proper objective scaling and an additional tuning pass. The objectives so far leaned heavily towards the Agatha faction, which meant an easy victory for them in most cases.
Although Coxwell was one of Chivalry 2The best cards in most game modes, its objectives have been heavily skewed in favor of one faction for some time now. According to the developer’s blog, there was an error in the way the company collected statistical data on Coxwell’s gameplay, which resulted in a poor objective balance between the two factions and subsequently one of them was much more successful. The issue was particularly noticeable in Coxwell’s endgame, and the developers are grateful that the community brought these issues to light.
The blog post also detailed some of the potential changes coming to Coxwell in the future once he returns to active rotation. Spawn timers and kill counts are both subject to change and some objectives may end up scaling with the number of active players in a given match. As one of the best multiplayer games of 2021, Chivalry 2 has shown time and time again that the developers are proactive and dedicated to working with the community to iron out issues, and the removal of Coxwell for gameplay optimization has been met with understanding by players.
Since not even masters of Chivalry 2The fight could overcome the default stat advantage provided to Agatha on this map alone, it’s clear the problem was very serious indeed. As there are many other cards currently available with better objective balancing, the devs are right to focus their attention on Coxwell by temporarily removing him from Chivalry 2 and examining what may or may not have gone wrong.
Since its launch, Chivalry 2 has been made free several times now, with the previous free weekend taking place on March 17. It’s unclear when the next free play session will be, but players interested in giving the game a chance now that the most unbalanced level in the game has been removed should keep an eye out.
Chivalry 2 is now available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
