Today marks the beginning of Season 3 in For Honor! With this update we will be getting a couple new maps and most importantly, 2 new heroes in the Highlander (Vikings) and the Gladiator (Knights). I was watching For Honor long before it was ever released. I played the Alpha and the Beta and bought it on day one. I played it until a little bit after Season 1 ended and then I went away from the game due to myself becoming to competitive and for other well known issues (as I explained in my previous For Honor article). But for the last 2 weeks I have been back playing For Honor and have been enjoying it more so than I did before!
My main hero is the Conqueror as I do pretty well most of the time when playing him/her but when I came back this time I really wasted to try becoming pretty good with another hero and I unlocked the Centurion and have been playing him pretty much exclusively. I have been doing okay with him so far, I would say. I am no expert after these 2 weeks but I can see improvement after everyday I get to play him. Now I tend to become really good with this hero (or as good as I can be at least) before moving on to a new character but the point I am trying to make is that my 2 mains are Knights. I am of the Knight faction and there is no other characters I have spent more time on then the knights. No one has every really interested me more…. that was until the Highlander was unveiled.
I was able to watch the 2 new characters being played in the recent For Honor tournament (shown above, also a Cartoonz fan) and I was really drawn to the Highlander more so than the Gladiator. I think a big part of it is that the Gladiator has more of a spear and the Highlander has a sick ass, huge claymore to swing around! He reminded me a little of the Conqueror, slow but powerful and I think that is the type of hero I excel with the most. The Highlander is a really good feint attack hero (so they say), and I dont really use feint that often but I know I can adapt to play him. I mean I am not a pro For Honor player so I am sure whatever I do will be fine to play where I am at but overall the Highlander looks like a complete bad ass and I look forward to playing him (hopefully soon).
The Gladiator looks alright. He looks a lot faster than the Highlander and a few of his attacks look pretty cool but this is probably the 1st Knight that I am not 100% all for. Who knows, maybe I will change my mind if I ever get to play him, but for now its all about the Highlander baby! I mean look at him! Straight up bad ass! See you on the battlefield my friends!
