Nobody is a very strong word."With the massive increase in settlements that we have in Bannerlord, we felt that having to micromanage settlements all the way down to the village level would, over time (as your territory grows), become overbearing and tiresome to manage."
This right here is the killer philosophy, the flat line pulse of this game. They did not listen to any of us, nobody wanted this.
While I would love to be able to own a village only and work up, but we are suppose to be Nobles not common scum. Bannerlord is the game name after all. Why would I want to micro mang a village when I have a head man/shierf to do so? Whcih honestly that part I wouldn't mind being able to higher or appoint who you want to run it like governors. There also should be two types of governors, the Towns and the Castles (more military minded) while the Castle lords are there to protect the land they rule over while the Towns governor is there to deal more with economic backing of the trade of towns/cities.
