OK kid. Lets start with us agreeing we both can read and understand English.
This game is a sand box simulation with inspiration from history. Specifically the 'migration period' after the fall of the Roman Empire. It pushes realism to the point where you have simulated swing speed with your weapon. Of course video games have leeway to alter fun and realism. This franchise created it's stake towards realism, and historical inspiration.
> is the 'greater than' symbol
My statement, realism 'is greater than' fantasy, has spurned you into being offended. I don't know how. My assumption is you are an adolescent by age or social maturity.
The developers take a more realistic approach when they can, the game is made this way. Historical accurate axes > comic/cartoon axes, in this game.
Your argument, if I read it correctly, is that because one part of the game is realistic, then how come all the other parts aren't realistic? It doesn't argue my point. It just puts an 'all or nothing' stance respectively.
'Fantasy, yet you can outrun people on horses on the campaign map '
Here you are mistaken. Your speed on the campaign map is simulated with many factors. For instance, the more horses you have in your inventory, and the more cavalry you have in your army, will increase your map speed. You should have no problem chasing down groups of bandits if everyone is on a horse. If you have a large army chasing down a scouting party, that will be more difficult, it's a logistics and attrition issue at that point.
'yet you can take an arrow to the head/neck/heart and not die, yet you can punch a shield or helmet until the person passes out and not damage your fists, yet you can cut someones throat and they keep trying swinging and don't bleed out '
At some point developers take into account what makes their game unique. An accurate fighter simulation probably passed around their office. Adjusting a script and releasing a mod to have a head shot kill, would be easy. Ultimately it's a medieval sandbox simulation, and not a realistic fighting simulation. They put their resources where they can. All or nothing is a none argument anyway.
'All that being said, I bet you don't have permadeath enabled. '
This is just an attack on myself. I haven't said anything offensive before you stated this. It's a simple mundane hormone induced **** swinging insult going down the wrong path because you imagined me insulting you.
So let's recap.
Axes should be bigger.
Realism is greater than fantasy. (Bigger swords, you mean length? actual conversation inquiry)
All or nothing points. With an insult.
Take some time to relax, get some real work done where you can feel proper about yourself. You know, hold your own. Fix a bike, build a shelf. Some actual real life skills. It'll calm you down and make you feel more secure about yourself.
As for permadeath, you're just going to have to trust me. I 100% play with it turned on some of the time.
I'm not going to reply anymore to this thread. You bother me, you little whipper snapper you.
