Knight at Arms
If you have 25 clans in your kingdom your past the tipping point and it should be all down hill from there. Almost every world domination game has this flaw and why it's difficult for many to finish a game.I think we're agreeing in principle but using different language here. The late game is GRINDY, but it is not hard. Once you have 25 clans you can just AFK and watch your team conquer the world.
This game is really just a time sink because Taleworlds just doesn't know how to put good mechanics into a game and even if they did that wouldn't appeal to the console crowd. Personally I'm just waiting for the game to release so good modders can actually add some depth that Talesworlds won't or can't add.I'd like the late game to offer me mechanical, strategic, and tactical challenges rather than just being a time sink.
