Beta Patch Notes v1.2.0-v1.2.6

Users who are viewing this thread

Fixes
  • Fixed a bug that caused the Circle Formation arrangement drawn and shown in the order UI to be executed incorrectly, preventing tighter Circle Formation with more inwards depth/ranks.
The positioning of troops seems to be working for both circle and square formation, but in circle they block in whatever direction they are facing, while in square they keep switching between correct and wrong facing direction.
 
troops still not getting placed into garisson by companion party leaders? Ucan was saying it would be fixed and marked the report as being fixed. i dont see any in the notes.
It should already be in since the Beta v1.2.2
  • Fixed a bug that prevented attacker parties from donating troops and prisoners to a newly conquered settlement.
EDIT: Upon further inspection, this previous fix seems to apply to non-clan party leaders. I will inquire about your case.
EDIT 2: When this is happening, are you by any chance in a kingdom, your own formed one, joined another, or is your clan independent?
 
@Piconi @Duh_TaleWorlds Tournaments and Infantry vs Infantry AI saw a marked improvement with this hotfix, so good job on that. Square formation also felt more useful now that the formation is tight by default, but it's hard to tell with how the melee infantry currently is.

The state of Melee Infantry vs Cavalry & the state of Melee Cavalry vs foot troops is still unacceptable. They're the same as they've been since 1.2.0, both are too passive, they focus too much on blocking rather than attacking, and cavalry still misses their attacks quite often. Both of them are terrible ever since 1.2 released. This patch still isn't ready for a live release. Hopefully you can forward these issues and they get fixed. I repeat, this patch is definitely not ready to be put on live.
 
Its now impossible to craft legendary level 2h axe. I think this
  • "Legendary" items can only be crafted from crafting parts with a combined average tier of 4.5 and higher.
  • "Masterwork" items can only be crafted from crafting parts with a combined average tier of 3.5 and higher.
works for items with 4 crafting slots. if there are 3 or less the absent item part is considered tier 1?
 
my legendary 2h axes turned to thrash items. about 50 attempts to craft one with 306-307 smithing got maybe 20 masterwork, not one legendary.
p.s. all parts tier V

That is being investigated as a separate issue.
any idea why the block chance of the AI was "massively" increased. This effects combat, for example after failing a bunch I ran a test. a Khuzait bandit base, I had myself and 9 tier 3 aserai footman vs their boss and 6 bandits, I turned the dmg received for me and friendly units to very easy, the lowest and we wiped 3 times against the boss, with all settings on the easiest, does that sound right?

Lol. Not a fan of this change to the legendary, masterwork and fine modifier status within smithing. Does this mean you can no longer find "legendary" low level weapons like legendary pitchforks from loot? since a pitchfork is obviously not crafted with tier 5 parts.

now my masterwork 2h axes turned to thrash items. I dont get it...
I wonder if the level 250 smithing perks work now, they are supposed to boost thrust or swing damage but they applied no additional effects unless it was just updated in 1.2.3. At least the blade lengths don't change anymore...

I hope this fixes the AI behavior :smile:
I'm off to test it.
 
yes, my crafted heavy bardishes turn into thrash items now, after each game restart. that one was fine (quality), so i guess modifier isnt the case. some scythe i crafed after remained, so not all new weapons get thrashed.
still, unability to craft legendary axe (bardiche) looks like an issue worth testing
 
any idea why the block chance of the AI was "massively" increased. This effects combat, for example after failing a bunch I ran a test. a Khuzait bandit base, I had myself and 9 tier 3 aserai footman vs their boss and 6 bandits, I turned the dmg received for me and friendly units to very easy, the lowest and we wiped 3 times against the boss, with all settings on the easiest, does that sound right?
Oh no… Finally we have a decent AI now for melee combats and people start complaining because “it is too hard”. C’mon… I am having 0 issues and the game is still pretty much doable in the hardest difficulty, even against dudes with +200 weapon skill (even when I am a mediocre player).



(The video was in hardest difficulty settings, I was trying to find the difficulty setting in the last part of the video but I was not able to find it xD).

Devs, please ignore people complaining about the AI blocks too much, it is finally competitive. If for some reason you want to nerf the AI, just add a difficulty setting for making the AI dumber for those players who want to wreck the AI easily. Please do not nerf the AI.

Here you have another video where my tier3 troops cleared the hideout without by themselves.

i much prefer the new blocking behavior, i was playing 1.1.5 while waiting for voice bug to be fixed and realized while competing in tournaments that the AI would often just let you hit them 4 times consecutively because they would try to beat you to the swing, that doesn't happen anymore.

there is something new that should be addressed and that's how melee infantry who have throwable weapons will stop right before the two lines clash and just stand there waiting to use their javelins. this means that your infantry who dont have ranged weapons will be outnumbered in the mosh pit.
