The Mount and Siege server on warband runs 200 player sieges with no lag at all. You can still get almost a full server at peak times now and it runs perfect...Because of lag, the 200 man back in the days in warband were very laggy. Most players with lower end pcs wouldnt be able to play siege then.
Skirmish is 6v6. I'm willing to bet that a large majority of the people interested in this game aren't interested in such small scale fights.Theres is a siege sever and skirmish is by far better than battle for gameplay except for big line battle events. You dont need to wait endlessly after each round till it finishes. The classes and mechanics need to be balanced and refined. This has nothing to do with the gamemode itself though.
It should be 100 vs 100 at a minimum. We have these amazing, massive siege maps and we're limited to only 60 players a side. The games currently feel tiny in scale, especially when we have so much potential in terms of things being destructible and siege engines etc.I hope for 100 vs 100 siege battle honestly
