Currently all elite crossbow men have only one quarrel to hold a shield, making them worse ranged units than bowmen due to their highly limited ammo supply. Bolts and arrows are also very samey in item properties. I think one way to fix both of these would be to make bolts have more bolts...
How to Reproduce: Equip heavy crossbow, engage battle on horseback, shoot, can't reload unless unmounting. This is odd enough but reloading works with a light crossbow.
Have you used cheats and if so which: none

I've been comparing the strengths and weaknesses of Bows and Crossbows and come to the following result:
-Faster readying time,
-Longer holding time,
-Less bullet drop,
-Equal fire rate.
-Legolas has one.
I know these imbalances have been pointed out from time to...
The Imperial Crossbowmen tier 4 are equipped with the really bad "Crossbow" which only has 35 speed. Normal Crossbows are all in the 60-63 speed range. This makes the Imp Crossbowmen inferior tier 4 Troop.
The same Crossbow when found in a Town Shop also have the bad speed of only 35...
I tried to test them but I have no real scientific results and today I can't even load the saves. ?
Have anyone knowledge of the Anti Missile Damage Perks and if they do in fact stack in some sort of way.

You take 10% less damage from ranged attacks. in game...
In short - you shouldn't be able to flick-shot with crossbows. Your aim should spread when doing sharp rotations of your camera, same way it does while walking. Also spread while jumping should be reasonably increased.
I personally don't see any reason why crossbows should stay like they are...
Playing the beta, enjoying it so far. but I can't seem to reload my crossbow when still on my horse, I have to move forward or backwards, even slightly to allow me to reload. its not that bad I just thought you would like to know.
Recently I created a new character with the idea of making a mercenary company. All would be crossbow men and we would support different armies of a particular faction.
I noticed that with the current crossbows you need a skill of 20. So I farmed exp in practice fights over and over until I...
I do not seem to be able to find a Crossbow that does not have a skill requirement less than 10. My Character currently has only a skill level of 5 in Crossbows. Is this intended? There seems to be no way to progress in Crossbows if your character doesn't already have at least 10 points...
Before we start: lets make a few things clear:
-Battanian Fian Champions are currently unmatched if it comes to ranged units
-Arrows have more Ammo then Bolts
-Bows shoot faster then Crossbows
-Bows have higher range then Crossbows.
Now lets think: why did humanity even invent the crossbows...
I mean, I get it you should have a skill for accuracy, but crossbows were mainly used because any old farmer could pick one up and be deadly with almost no training
Right now I'm trying to give a companion a crossbow but I cant find a crossbow with a low enough skill threshold for him to use...
A few bugs, issues, and suggestions I noticed creating a new character this week:
Talking to the village headman (from the tutorial questline) grants ~40 skill points to charm. I had a 2 in the social attribute and 0 focus points in charm.
The Nahasawi horse duplicates once the player is...
