God do I bother? Your grasp of objective and subjective arguments is superficial at best.Immersion or boredom is a rather subjective matter. To say "economy is broken because income from a fief should be more important in a feudal world than crafting a javelin" or "factions in war with several other factions declaring war on still another faction or not looking for peace with one faction is a bad mechanic" are already assessments, but with some objective and only few subjective facts in it. To say "the game is boring", "the game is not immersive" are assessments of a higher level with a lot of personal taste in it.
It's a bit difficult to react to it. For me for example it is of no importance at all wether you can chat with lords, make feasts or read books. I want to be immersed by graphics and by meaningful mechanics of the AI in the first place. I also trust in mods and don't need all in the main game to be satisfied. My three favorite games, Skyrim, Fallout 4, TW:R2 I could not play a minute without a big bunch of mods. In Bannerlord I'm annoyed about a lot of design choices, but as long as they can be dealt with with mods, so what?
So I hope they get the core mechanics right in the end, making war a bit less of a repetitive senseless grind for example. Repetitive it will remain to a certain degree, cause more or less any video game is repetitive (for example Kenshi which was mentioned in the thread).
Your argument can be summed up as "All your points are based on opinion and therefore mean nothing, here is my opinion on the game, but so long as someone else fixes it for me with mods etc. Kthxbye"
This is everything which is wrong with the fanbois who currently prowl this forum defending this games horrid state.I also trust in mods and don't need all in the main game to be satisfied. My three favorite games, Skyrim, Fallout 4, TW:R2 I could not play a minute without a big bunch of mods.
