Please note that we've updated the Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord save file system which requires you to take certain steps in order for your save files to be compatible with e1.7.1 and any later updates. You can find the instructions here.
I think right now it is really difficult to correctly balance caravans. Currently they are just a dice roll. They might make money, they might not.
The player has no controll over it at all. All the developer can do to balance caravans is to tweak the chances of it to make money.
If the chances...
In my opinion leveling units up is a too big part of bannerlords gameplay.
Hunting bandits and later weak lords isn't a lot of fun. There are a lot of threads that talk about this problem already.
Most of them suggest to give the player more ways to lever their units. Giving the player more and...
Currently you constantly get stuck on allies behind you because the animation looks like this:
Please change it to this:
That would solve the problem and the animation would still be readable.
Here a video to showcase the problem:
As long as somebody is blocking behind you, you can't...
They never block after they get hit. They always try to counter attack and that almost always fails if they don't get a lucky chamber.
This is partly the reason why tournaments are so easy and battles over so quickly.
Here one of my Tournaments.
The Video tries to be entertaining. I don't...
I played the game for 128 hours.
Thats quite a lot already. With many games it would be completely normal to move on now.
Taking a break is what im going to do. At least until the next update.
So here is my feedback. (Played the beta on highest difficulty.)
I think the game has a lot potential...
It would be nice if units that just got hit or are low on health were a bit less aggressive, at least for a short time.
That would help with several issues.
1. Fighting AI soldiers would be a bit more interresting. Especially in tournaments i often notice my AI oponent being very agressive...
Right now espacially the early game feels extremly grindy because the only way to level up your units is to constantly hunt down bandits or weak lords.
I would be really nice if some quests with the appropiate difficulty, would offer some mid tier soldiers as quest reward.
I think the whole hideout thing needs a lot more work to really get interresting.
1. Finding the hideout.
Right now its exltremly easy to find hideouts. You just want to visit a village and suddenly you spot a hideout at the other end of the forrest. I haven't even skilled scouting and i still...
I have accepted that quest but can't find the herd that i have to deliver. On the Campaign map there are some sheeps standing close to Sagora (The place where i got the quest) but they don't seem to be interactable. Any advice would be nice.
1. Less but more meaningfull battles.
One thing that always comes to my mind when i think of Warband are these endless battles that never felt like their outcome was very important to the overall campaign.
Once i had massed up swadian knights (like 120) non battle had any tension or was...
