  1. Beta Patch Notes e1.5.9

    I do believe Bannerlord is gonna become the game we all want, but its gonna take time. The sooner we realize that the better.
    How much time though? Its been a year now with no substantial updates. How much time would need to pass before you start to think nothing will change? For me it was around the 6 month mark. Before then I was as charitable as you are now. But after so long with little in the way of development you have to start to question why that is the case. and given that this game has been in development longer, and with a larger team than the example I gave it doesn't paint a good picture. So at this point I think it is absolutely valid to make a comparison to a far smaller team that has made consistent, meaningful updates to their game and ask why this game and this team- which seems to me to be in a similar situation- has been unable to do the same after a year.

    No Man's Sky just realized a major patch today. The last one they did was only a month ago.
    I don't know if that says anything about Tale Worlds or not. But it sure made me wish I could see this level of quality updates for Bannerlord

    I never really got into those board games, but... Are they broken if the player is a "bad" player? Not claiming he is. I'm at best average when it come to actual chess, but I don't complain and say the game is broken if someone beat me in it.
    I do not know, to be honest. I have not played the board games in quite some time. I simply take issue with the dismissive stance of 'just skip the broken thing'

    Perhaps it is truly broken, or perhaps Andrew just needs to Git Gud. Regardless of the truth simply telling someone to 'skip it' ignores the issue either way.

    auto resolve
    Which still ignores the problem instead of solving it. The sieges are broken. We would like them fixed. Autoresolving sieges does not fix sieges.
    The board game is broken, Andrew would like it fixed. Skipping it does not fix the board game.

    People want to enjoy everything the game has to offer, not have to skip them because they don't work.

    If you don´t like the mini-game don´t play it? If it´s for "in and out" quest just skip the game and pay him. you will get more then enough money back for solving.
    'Don't play this part of the game' is not a solution for 'this part of the game is broken'
    What if someone said the same thing about the broken sieges?
  6. How old are you, and how much you love this game?

    25, and went from extremely excited and pleased with the game to saddened by its progress around the 6 month mark. At this point I'm holding out hope that Bannerlord will be the next No Man's Sky and one day have a massive turn around.

  8. Beta Patch Notes e1.5.8

    Sad thing is I don't think I've sat down to seriously play this game since 1.5.0 if not earlier (I can't remember) I keep looking at the forums for the next patch, wondering, hoping each time that this will be the one that offers enough to get me into it again. So far hasn't happened yet. Though 1.5.6 (if I remember right) did give me a spark of hope.
  9. What is the one thing you're waiting for before doing another serious playthrough of Bannerlord?

    I'm not sure what I'm waiting for exactly, but I know that I'll know it when I see it.
    If forced to pick something I would probably say working and in depth diplomacy first and foremost, then working and balanced economics, then siege better AI, then reasonable player progression, then upgrades for villages (and lots of them, especially if they are visible when you visit them!) And finally boats.

    Tis a strange day ineed when the whole thread suddenly stans MostBlunted
  11. Beta Patch Notes e1.5.8

    I have to agree with the overwhelming consenus on this thread. The arguments given by the devs in favor of changing the battle size slider boils down to 'people didn't realize the performance impact' which is a very shaky argument for removing that much customization. Ermozdemir's insistance that simply adding a description to the numbers on the slider 'isn't good enough' leads me to believe this may have been a choice that they were behind, or at least heavily invested in.

    Regardless it is clearly not a popular decision and seems a very heavy handed solution to a very minor problem. If players somehow fail to understand that more = more performance impact that is on them. Removing the ability to fine tune this option from everyone else is a poor choice.
  12. The disadvantages of limiting battle size

    I agree with this. If we are not given the option of deciding which units to bring into battle first, then a more balanced spread of units being given what whatever algorithm manages these things is a must.

    I would like to hear from devs on the points brought up in this thread. Understanding why they have made the choices they have would help us provide better criticism and suggestions on something that is vital to making the battles engaging and exciting.
  13. Beta Patch Notes e1.5.8

    If having the old slider back for battle sizes is truly no longer an option- despite the unanimous voice shown in this thread so far- then I would prefer options every 100 troops, every 50 would be even better. Personally I would even prefer the option to make battles even larger, but I would guess the devs have some reasons for not making this possible
  14. Beta Patch Notes e1.5.8

    Couldn't you just keep the slider but attach a label next to it which changes from Very Low to Max depending on what the slider's set at? Then you give players the feedback they need while also letting them fine-tune their settings as they like
    I think this is a far better idea. Any changes that result in less control over our experience are ones I am not fond of. Bringing back the slider would allow people to customize their experience in a more meaningful way.
  15. Beta Patch Notes e1.5.8

    When part of a kingdom, the player does not actually own the settlement after a conquest - it is distributed in a kingdom decision (that takes into account who conquered it, but also evaluates the distribution of fiefs in the kingdom as well as relationships between lords). Once you are given a fief in a kingdom, you do have the option to relinquish it to be distributed to someone else or to grant it to one of your vassals if you are a king.

    Having said that, I am happy to bring up the suggestion to not take control of a settlement after a siege. It would only really make sense as a player (roleplay/4d chess) option imo, though. Devastated or not, settlements are the best value in the game. Not to mention that the investment to siege it will often hardly be worth it, if it isn't kept.
    Glad to hear you'll be passing on the suggestion! However I'm gonna have to slightly disagree on it only making sense as a player. I think there are certainly situations in which an army may find that a settlement is not worth keeping. Say because it is too far from their own lands, or because they expended too many men in taking it, or because the kingdom or clan is bankrupt or close to and they need an infusion of cash NOW and not a steady trickle later. I think it would make sense that an army leader may decide to simply pillage the town for its vast riches and leave. Perhaps this could cause tension if there were other nobles or heroes in the army that badly wanted the town (they or their clan owned it once, they lack any fiefs of their own and are eager to claim one) or even gain some benefits with other nobles (say the town belongs to someone that has defeated another noble in the army, sacking it gives them a relationship bonus because they got revenge)

    Of course these are just off the cuff ideas, but I think there is a lot of potential to work with here.
