But sometimes... leather gloves are just leather gloves. Sometimes mail mittens are just mail mittens. You are asking for a bit much to give each and every faction their very own things, when you can just hand them around.It's called identity, there is nothing wrong if ex:
The lord from Sturgia goes to Khuzait side and "buys" the armor, the problem is having already from the start
Not to mention this is not even a lord with other faction armor style ... it's an actual unit. For you this makes sense? so why even have factions at that point... it would be way simpler to just have 1 uniform across the board... it's ridiculous, there is no logic behind that.
One thing is the MC doing that, it's based on your choice, the other thing is having different factions with each others gear.
I know this game isn't a historical correct, but some foundations need to be there. The same applies to all the people here talking about pila/pilum and the way it "should" work/visual. Just imagine turning Pilum into a bow... makes sense? easy as that.
There needs some consistency in how it's done. The three Imperial's make sense, but having Sturgia and Khuzait mix up or any other for that matter is ridiculous. I'm also in favor of the Lords trying to maintain that identity if possible and only break that rule if they change sides.
And I think its hardly fair for you to take my points to an extreme I never argued for lol.
Seriously, there are better things to worry about than just being grumpy that the Aserai happen to use a few Khuzait lamellar pieces too and etc.
