It only gives the option to "give me another chance" and It says I'm sorry we just aren't compatible but I never got a chance to do the three dialogue options in the first place.How do you find out it failed? Haven't seen that. But what I have seen is if after finishing both sets of dialogues, you go to the clan leader, but the spouse had been captured or in a cool down, the finalizing the marriage dialogue won't be available, it doesn't tell you this, but later if they are freed you can get it.
Should really take the time to write a line for NPC to tell the player "????? is a prisoner so you can't get married right now".
There really isn't a "rest" of them to stand above if elite troops are common. Then its more like there are normal troops and sub-par troops. And sub par troops aren't fun to anyone.- again, I personally suspect that the majority of players want T6 elites to stand above the rest; so just making them weak enough that you dont want to bother with them is hardly going to be a solution.
The encyclopedia is nice but I would like a notes section. Also, I completely disagree on feasts. Feasts gave a more convenient opportunity to seek out a wife, and the dialogue about previous encounters and battles was, at this point, better and more flavorful in Warband, IMO. I enjoyed the peace time opportunity to interact with the nobles and hear little tidbits about previous campaigns.I understand people want to be miserable but is this necessary? The encyclopedia is awesome in Bannerlord and 1 millions times better than how it was in Warband. Not only does it look better but the functionality is there to easier and quickly find information on anything you need. There is so much more information in it and you can even pin cities to the map which is like something that I always wanted to do in Warband.
I also find it ironic that everyone wants Feasts back, yet in all my 500+ hours of Warband the main point of feasts was to get everyone together to so I can easily find and track down a lord. Well with the Bannerlord encyclopedia this is trivial and very well done.
