First of all, somehow I believe EA won't end in March, it might be expired. Let's say I just feel that way because of a lack of content in the game which is never mentioned under the statements for single-player plans 1,2 & 3. Many features discussed or mentioned already in these statements and topics in the forum but some topics still not get -kind of- response from TW.
For example, in this statement, you mentioned the party command feature however there is nothing about companion interaction. For example, there is a mod called "Sue's More Spouse and Lord From Family (Update)" which allows you to create a clan for your family members or companions and make them clan leaders if you meet the conditions. And also your family members can get married to your companions as well. When you're creating a kingdom from scratch, it's a handy solution or a way to do it.
This kind of feature is really effective and gives game diversity. At this stage, the game doesn't have this kind of feature, and the more annoying part of it the stage of the game pulls modders back to keep update and improve their mods as well.
I do understand how EA progress but it's not only about the game's status now. Lots of features that made us fall in love with Warband are seemed like couldn't make it in Bannerlord. Tbh I almost never played WB without mods and in Bannerlord I'm looking forward to playing the game with mods in a stable version. In one way I'm concern about the game won't have these features but on the other hand, I believe in modders.
My question in my example creating a clan for your family members and companion feature, is there any chance to have that kind of feature in the game?
At this moment progress feels like 2 steps forward and 1 step back. I don't think TW will do it but if you announce the deadline of the EA clearly then modders can make much better planning and as a player, we know when we can really start a long playthrough. I'm really looking forward to starting a new campaign and play it as long as I can. Maybe I can see the 10th generation and keep playing it.
