To be honest, in my 100+ hours I maybe managed to shot that guy twice. It doesn't help that when you're used to blunderbuss firing in general direction instead of aiming becomes force of habit :P

That's B&G for you, to be honest. There's not that much strategy game in it, you can pay attention to your army roster, manage your enterprises and generally do all that stuff required to carry on fighting in Warband and its mods, but there's plenty of tools to bypass that completely and just bounce from action to action. Imo, it's really captivating for the first run and then one just keeps returning every once in a while for couple of hours, because it is still fun to repeat certain things even after you explored every nook and cranny.

I just wish there was more. It is not bad for what it is, but playing it you can see the outlines of much greater game it could be, but never had an occasion to become one.

I completely agree with your assessment, and that's how I use Blood and Gold as well. Really, there are too many things missing--it needs Caribbean trade winds that make western travel fast and eastern travel slow (like Sid Meier's Pirates), it needs a complete overhaul of ship-to-ship combat, it needs a lot more ship boarding scenes, and it needs governors' daughters (and a dancing mini-game wouldn't hurt as well).

I have downloaded ACOK 6.2 yesterday and I have begin playing it, but for me game played by you sounds more adventure than strategy, I not like pirates and ships because I prefer middle ages and knights, I hope as you will try Warband mods again

In Sid Meier’s Pirates, you danced, the girls gave you gifts. Blood and Gold is very much the opposite arrangement. ;)

Before I think about ACOK or AWoIaF I have to finish Nova Aetas, Blood&Gold and Viking Conquest.  :wink:

Plasquar, I have explored jungle before you but you can get chests in temples with exotic goods to sell, Viking Conquest is good but I not playing so much because I not have same experience as in Warband. But Nova Aetas slow many players from having milions of denars, compared to first versions is so hard and challenging. About B&G i not like Carribean, pirates and 17th century, just my opinion but exploring a different setting is fun. In future when you finished these three, ACOK must to be in your list afterwards AWOIAF. ACOK have unique quests in beginning, exploring ruins and other places get EXP and leveling without fighting so much. ACOK is demanding compared to Pendor and Perisno

You haven’t played Sid Meier’s Pirates?

https://store.steampowered.com/app/3920/Sid_Meiers_Pirates/ Possibly one of the most pure fun games ever made. Certainly the best pirate themed game ever made. And a very similar game to Warband in spirit.

Grab a proper horse and go racing next, the (unfortunately, only one, afaik) track is absolutely ridiculous thing too!

The horse races are fantastic.  :iamamoron:

Not yet, no. It looks interesting, 10 bucks is not much. You should have suggested that during the Steam summersale.  :lol:

You'll love it. Truly a masterpiece, with a sandbox mercenary feeling that reminds one of warband, but a very different end-goal (occasionally divide the plunder among your men and retire wealthy before the ravages of age finish you off, while running missions to find your lost family, dig up buried treasure, and find lost cities).

I'll make sure to take a look at Sid Meiers Pirates. Maybe I'm gonna buy it right after I'm done with B&G.

You when will playing one of two GOT mods, I believe as you will choose AWOIAF rather ACOK

Both of them seem to receive constant updates. I'll take whatever seems to have less bugs.

I not have encounter bugs in none of them but ACOK and AWOIAF using same visuals, AWOIAF is more hardcore than ACOK in gameplay. I play ACOK than AWOIAF, oh my god most detailed map is in ACOK. I have downloaded Perisno
