  1. Siege Battles, Confronting the Elephant in the Room

    Siege battles in Bannerlord are epic in scale and can be some of the most fun in the entire game. But there are some big, big issues that serve to undermine them. The first and most important in my opinion is the lack of incentive to build siege weapons(Ballistae, Onagers, Trebuchets) due to how...

    [Suggestion] Distinct map event UI visuals for both Siege Phase and Battle Phase (pictures)

    First of all, well done with the new map event UI visuals. They look clean and are highly functional. Suggestion: I would like to see an icon added for the "Sieging Phase" of sieges. Crossed swords can then be added to indicate the "Battle Phase" of sieges. Currently the only way to tell if a...

    [Bug/Oversight]: Besieging armies continue to consume food while in battle, leading them to break away mid-combat.

    Summary: Besieging armies will break the siege off and leave when they run out of food. However, because AI battles play out in real-time they still appear to consume food while they are in combat with the defenders. This leads to cases where a battle that was clearly in favor of the attacker...

    Sieges are still broken

    The field battles are fun but my happiness comes to a grind when I have to siege a castle. The AI is still having major path finding issues with the basic functions with the Ram, Siege ladders and regular ladders. This must be addressed asap in my opinion as the sieges are what make this game...
  6. Resolved siege wrong spawn

    I loaded up the game and my army where i was a mercenary of was about to attack kranirog castle. it was vlandians against sturgians. instead of the siege we all spawned inside of the keep with like 500 troops in the tiny chamber. the save was running on: native e1.1.0.226306...
  7. In Progress Siege | Nevyansk Castle | Attackers wont properly climb ladders and towers

    Summary: My Sturgian army laid siege to Nevyansk Castle (Vlandians). 500 vs 190. Formation 1 = infantry Formation 2 = archers Formation 3 = mix One siege tower head for the left wall. One ram head for the gate Ladders on right side wall. Tower get to the wall. some (10-20) climb up and start...

    Melee units not participating in assault on a city.

    Joined an army and a siege after loading on the new patch (beta line). Melee units never moved from their opening positions, never attempting to move the siege tower. Retreated, re-joined and simulation kicked in and resolved assault. Since I've been killed in first run, couldn't rejoin as...
  9. How do I order my troops to use specific siege equipment?

    Hey guys, How can I order part of my troops (a squad, or all of them) to use only battering ram or only siege tower, while ignoring other siege equipment? I want to move in through one side of the castle (sometimes braking the gate). But if I order "charge" they run off towards ladders without...

    Siege defenders need some love

    I'm starting this thread because I believe defenders in sieges should have more noticable advantages. Mainly, to make it so that fewer men are required to successfully defend a castle. As of now the amount of troops can have a ratio of 1:1 and attackers still win in many cases. I think a 3:1...
  11. Enemy kings sieging your castle

    I convinced a king to not siege my castle, they agreed and walked away. Not 10 seconds later they Siege my castle again. I tried to defend by attacking them and it said i had a Non-agression pact and could not. is there any way you could make it so the enemy king has to follow the agreement too...
  12. Ability to change equipment during sieges

    Good morning everyone! I believe it would be beneficial to have the ability to change the gear load-out in sieges. Many times I start a siege and forget that I still have the wrong weapons for the situation (ie: a lance, a horse). Although this might be just how I play the game, my...
  13. There is NO successful siege defense

    There is no way to prepare for a coming siege battle, and the AI will attack the wall unless player is overwhelmed. On the other hand, player has to sacrifice some troops to "break through" and then he can join a siege defense battle. So player has little chance to enjoy a siege defense and it...
  14. More defence battles in siege

    The siege battles are great! But, most of the time players and lords are attacking others and there is no NPC army actually besieged. Besides, there is hardly any chance for NPC to defense their castle or city in a siege battle. Unless player sacrifice some troops and break into the town, which...
  15. Archers Wonky in Siege Battles

    Has anyone else found that recently there are issues with archers in siege battles? As when I've gone into siege battles recently on the beta branch my archers have performed really poorly indeed. Getting minimal kills with their bows in siege battles and more recently not splitting up in...
  16. In Progress Crashing after a siege

    So, I recently started to siege Charas to take it as my first city, but after I win the battle my game immediately crashes. I've tried running through safe mode and sending my troops into battle by themselves, but it still crashes. Any help would be appreciated.
  17. Separate battle size setting for sieges.

    Since there is such a massive difference in performance between field battles and siege battles it would be nice if we could have separate battle size settings for sieges and field battles. Getting tired of having to lower the battle size everytime I start a siege.
  18. Sieges are unplayable for me. (Crashes)

    About 3-4 patches ago, i used to be able to play sieges pretty comfortably and without much of an FPS drop. Now, I straight up can't do sieges at all, due to the fact it hard crashes about 10-15 seconds into the fight. I've tried verifying files, messing with "performance" settings and such. So...

Quest/Settlement Name...
