I wouldn't take his criticism seriously and I hope noone will.
I have played every single instance of Mount & Blade, including most of the larger mods, except that Carribean one?
I think it's very fair to "go away" from warband. The game worked, because it was pretty simple, but I really don't like the mini-tornado melee multiplayer fights.
It's very hard to do melee in a good way, but Kylbee's comments are honestly just from someone being butthurt and contra productive.
I'm very sure I wouldn't like a game to his point of view.
I already like Bannerlord's Multiplayer, but yea, it can use work. I feel like it's going pretty well. Enjoying the 60 vs 60 sieges and hope it'll make it to the old 100 vs 100.
It took a while getting used to archery and everything, but it's pretty doable. Singleplayer I got no issues, I'm just too casual for competitive online play (and I refuse to be a mini polearm tornado myself)
I rocked arse in Napoleonic Wars, but that one was relatively simple to Warband itself.
