*Shrug* the starting number of players was grossly out of proportion; a totally unrealistic amount and probably driven by the memes more then anything - that was never going to be maintained especially given how much work still needs to be done. It's currently sitting at a fairly reasonable number of players; in the same regions as total war warhammer 2 and civilisation 6 which have big crossover with this game and both recently got brand spanking new DLC.From 250k to like 17k in three months lol, Warband had 8k around the time of BL's release
Warband has better reviews as of now yes. This is 10 years after full release after hundreds of brilliant mods, competitions, events, community groups etc etc...Warband has better review
so what's ur point ?
the complains in this forum are for MP and most of the complains are valid
Obviously...Axios this was a troll post...
But that's the arguement though isn't it - mods. I don't think it's fair to judge bannerlord to warbands mods; only native warband. Bannerlord will get this same support given time but not until full release.while you can have 20k players online at Bannerlord, perhaps 150 top are in multiplayer. Warband surely beats that every day, but you'd have to count the several mods in it however.
This was similar to Warband too though; and Bannerlord MP is very barebones at the moment. 4 game modes, no custom servers, lots of improvements to be made. I am sure we will get more into MP as it gets developed but right now SP is a much bigger game.Yeah it's too early to compare, being in EA without a polished combat system plus lacking the planned features. To my eyes what's still alarming is the fact that from all the Bannerlord players at a time, only 0.75% or 1% is playing the current multiplayer.

Also the BETA patches don't help this either. I do like the idea but it splits the playerbase further; I can't choose to have a fully updated SP experience and play MP at the same time.
you cannot say it is similar numbers to Warband. that is untrue and I’ve made probably half a dozen posts at this point with the numbers and evidence. Warband sits at 10-15% in MP at any time (yesterday it was closer to 20% at prime time), while Bannerlord was managing 3-5% at release and is now <3%.
there are many reasons for this, and I’m not going to repeat them again and again, but it is disingenuous or ignorant to claim that the numbers and percentages Bannerlord is managing in its MP are in any way similar to what we saw in Warband.
