  1. Squibbles

    How to successfully defend a settlement post capturing

    So during a war, after taking over a castle or city it has no garrison, so you need to supply one. How do you get to a point where you can actually sacrifice men? My party only holds 109 as of now so I don't have many to place and successfully defend when an army of 400 + comes around. It would...
  2. SUGGESTION: Load in additional troops to bypass the 1000 man cap

    Suggestions for Devs, or modders. Could there be a system where if the unit cap on a battle is reached, the additional units can be loaded in as a second wave for an additional attack? This would make not having a gigantic army a waste, and also benefit people with less capable computers. It...
  3. Tactical strategies on the map

    Hi everyone, i'm asking my self if it will be interesting to develop tactical strategies on the world map because to my point, walking on the map is realy easy for everyone so i wish we should be more aware from enemie's moves and geographical events: 1) Warrior road block 2) Security...
  4. Resolved AI fails when player dies

    Hello, This issue was from 1.1.0 I haven't played 1.2.0 yet (FYI). So I have had this many times now, that the moment I die in a battle my entire army decides to break any formations I have made prior to dying. For instance if I have my archers elevated on terrain behind infantry with cavalry...
  5. Suggestion. Advanced Tactics

    War and tactics are fundamental parts of M&B. But i think the tactical options are lacking. Here are my suggestions: 1. Charge. Usually you would want specific troops such as Cavalry to target other specifik troops such as Archers. But charge is limited to just a simple attack. Suggestion...
  6. Add Commands to attack certain groups and other tactics

    Please add a way for us to tell our groups (infantry, archers, cavalry, etc) to attack certain enemy groups. It would be great if we could tell our cavalry "focus attack on enemy archers" instead of just "charge" because often the entire charge ends up veering off to follow one random enemy and...
  7. Raganvads tactics in battles

    Hello. I'd just wanna ask here, before doing any bug reporting. All my field battles, with Raganvad of sturgia as the commander = **** tactics. Basically he tells archers to skirmish in front of the quickly advancing infantry, which is impossible given the walking speed of the units. He...
  8. Suggestions: Like in Everything?

    Hi, so after ~50h of Bannerlord Gameplay and many hours Gameplay in the previous games, I want to make the following Suggestions: Tactics: One of the Parts why M&B is so great, are surely the fights. But they were always also bit of clunky. In M&B1 that was totally okay, but now.. its a bit...
  9. Buff pikes and phalanx formations

    For realism purposes i think that pikes should be buffed. also being able to do phalanx formations if you have a sufficient amount of spearmen and men with shields. Maybe add it as a perk a skilled tactician could unlock later in the game

    Call for Retreat, and your troop run INTO the enemy?

    When you call for retreat, your troop run towards the edge of the map, but there seems to be no logic which edge they head for. Quite often they will run to the FURTHEST edge of the map instead of the closest, or run relatively towards they enemy instead of the exact opposite direction. Try it...
  11. [Suggestion] Unit behavior based on their proficiency or "Tactics" skill

    So now a freshly started character out of blue knows every unit formation and how to employ them in battle and is able to make even untrained troops like recruits follow formation orders and orders in general perfectly. This kind of contradicts how other skills you need to level at some degree...

    Boardgames should give skill points

    Board games presented in Bannerlord are simple representations of battles of different kinds. In fact, these games are profitable for tactical mind. So how about reward winning board games with some tactics skill points? Maybe not that much as reward for real battles but still...
  13. Allow us to deploy troops pre-battle without the tactics perk

    I understand that there's a level 75 perk in the tactics tree that allows players to deploy troops before the battle. This is a great feature for the game, but I believe that it should be available to all commanders (at least in some sort of basic form). My reasons for this change are rooted in...

    Faction unique formations (tactical adv/disadv) & formation bonuses (buff/debuff) & REAL training ground

    Straightforward. 1) Not only will these formations provide a tactical use, using them appropriately, or with a faction type buff will allow COMBAT to be BETTER BALANCED. by certain buffs & debuffs (can of course be multiple, and be smart). Adds tactical depth, planning in battle and thinking...

    -TUTORIAL- ..Melee Combat Variation.. -TUTORIAL-

    I was thinking about how can improve my combat skills like most of you. Then practiced a lot in training on my own. I realized some tactics and wanted to share with you one of these that can be most helpful. First of all, as you all know this game was created with realistic game features with...
  16. Stale Combat Scenarios Require Minimal Strategy

    First of all I will say that I have only been playing the game for six hours so I apologize if I missed seeing these battle options. (Sidenote: defenders should not charge the attackers 95% of the time. This just seems like a very basic ai issue to solve.) Instead of having battle options be...
  17. Can’t win sieges. Help please!

    I am relatively new to this game and need tactical help for conquering cities. I am currently marshal of the kingdom of Vaegirs and I’m trying to take Uxkhal from the rhodaks. They have a 167 garrison. 140 of which is made of an even split of Rhodok sharpshooters and sergeants. Tough units I...
