What I can say about obelix is that he isn't a bad guy, even if he is sometimes a bit toxic, it has to be said. It's up to you to judge if you trust him, what I can see is that he is invested in Bannerlord and I hope it will continue that way.
Who needs a panel when you can use a terminal ?But who says the panel is working correctly?
Me, because... we're currently playing the game on their servers ??Who says they have setup the required infrastructure or configuration for the servers to work?
They're doing it already, it's not that big of a deal really.They still need to share some documentation on how to setup the servers.
having to update the files for each update and saying what changed is painfully annoying
Not mentioning the crash reports are directly reported to taleworlds. It makes a lot more sense to have it only for taleworlds until the game is finished.
I don't exactly know what type of server hosting you're demanding. You want taleworlds to provide servers or do you want the files?
The fact is that from a technical point of view, taleworlds should first see if the servers are up to the task before releasing the server files. What's good about having a server if its constantly crashing.
