Bannerlord has neither soul nor polish.Agreed besides the last paragraph. The quality simply isn't there. The biggest update was the addition of a new game mode, and it really lacks in quality. It offers less freedom than the Ludus, a modded Warband server. Their balance patches didn't work at all, they just jumped from one issue to the other because of their class system and sometimes, they even came back to the previous issues by trying to solve the new ones.
Let's not even talk about the servers, that's the pinnacle of Taleworlds mediocrity.
Only thing I can imagine is their server provider doesn't have servers in central and they don't want to change them. Maybe they just don't care though and are fine with NA being ruined.Which begs the question of why it hasn't been done already, and wasn't done in the first place.
