What can you do in Warband that you cannot in Bannerlord? At least BL has more quests, minor factions, more interesting bandit hideouts (that get boring real fast tho). As I said I dont disagree with it feeling empty at times, rather I am in full disagreement about all the comparisons to previous games, none did it better. And honestly, the point of the game is war and I dont fully understand what you want to do in peace time.?? How is Bannerlord less empty? What is there to do in the game other than constantly fight the same battles over and over?
Maybe if you had played for longer than 5 minutes and hadn't quit because you never bothered to use the right mouse button you'd know. But yeah I'm sure wildly swinging a 2h around in Bannerlord is objectively better and more intuitive.
Yeah wonder why that is, can't possibly be because the combat is ****, the class system is ****ing stupid and the multiplayer is devoid of any content.
He insists on playing and getting hung up about it as do we because we want the game to be better. People who have been playing the M&B franchise for a long time (several years) before BL as such aren't just going to **** off and find an alternative to play because its their main game. That'd just be ignoring the problem.
And actually yes, I am of the opinion that swinging a 2 handed or any weapon is objectively better and more intuitive.
You want the game to be better yet all I see is that Warband was so much better in every way, why not play that instead? That's not ignoring the problem, its clear that you enjoy something quite different to what bannerlord is.
