I was very disappointed with M&B multiplayer. All the servers were laggy, the weapons seemed unbalanced, and I was never that big a fan of infantry combat in M&B. This is why I was so skeptical of Chivalry. The combat feels very different despite being essentially the exact same thing. Chivalry does seem a bit more 'arcade-y' though, and all the weapons have clear advantages and disadvantages. Archery is more balanced as well, its rarely a 1 hit kill (believe only a headshot instakills) and accuracy is a lot lower.
