Warband system is still better than BL. Indeed, some items in Warband mp are not that useful. CSGO has some weapons that are rarely used in competitive matches, have you seen a pro player use ppbizon? But the customized louadout system is still easier to balance and offers more variety of plays.Helmets, theres barely any difference between the 2 heavy helmets or around 5 armor
Arming Cap = meme?
Helmet with Cap = meme?
Helmet with Neckguard = medium helmet
Flat topped Helmet = medium helmet
Guard Helmet = upgraded heavy helmet
Great Helmet = upgraded heavy helmet
Leather Armor = medium armor
Red Gambeson = medium armor
Haubergeon = heavy armor
Brigandine = heavy armor
boots are similar and gloves have rly low impact
1 handed weapons = 3 swords that are all similar, short sword too short for battle
Short Arming Sword
Long Awl Pike = cav drop
Throwing weapons = cant take it because of no gold left, they are way too low in dmg to be effective or useful
2 handed weapons = litterly just duel weapons
Heavy Bastard Sword
Two handed Sword
In the end this leaves you with the option to go medium armor infantry with shield a sword and an awlpike
If you get enough gold you can go for heavy armor
If you drop for cav you cant even go for awlpike and throwing
swadian infantry can choose from:
5 1handed swords
2 bastard weapons (2h but useable with shield)
2 2handed swords
5 body armours
not gonna go trough bannerlord but its less
Maybe in NA since its dead. Swadia is the only faction this is true for in terms of not providing multiple playstyles.Heres the thing about those weapons though. The 5 1handed swords are just +stat-stat copies of each other. Same with every other thing on that list. Paying +50 gold for +4 armor doesnt unlock a new playstyle.
Pretending that any class in warband had more than 1 or 2 variations that were competitively viable is delusional. Being able to pick between 5 swords that are the exact same with slightly more or less damage just isnt that interesting.
Rigid class systems with little to no customization is exactly how you kill the longterm health of MP. You have it exactly backwards.Nope. Not everyone has it. You assume things. You assume someone who never heard about WB and bought BL bc of some youtube vid knows what expects him in MP. You cannot put yourself back in that situation because it is that long ago. I get it. But I don't think what you say is good for sales and longterm health of the MP.
Who decides what a huge portion considers important? We can't even get 4000 people that are allegedly playing atm in MP to vote and people still speak about some kind of majority.the community must be united, and support each other in their wants and needs, when it is something a huge portion of them considers important.
No one does tork, neither can you. We can not claim any majority here.Who decides what a huge portion considers important? We can't even get 4000 people that are allegedly playing atm in MP to vote and people still speak about some kind of majority.
Just like warband the only thing most likely to happen is that playing with friends or in broader words, clans will keep multiplayer alive. Since there are no custom servers i don't think the players will peak anytime soon.I do think it’s a little bit sad to see multiplayer numbers at 4000, I was expecting way way more players
I also think it’s the problem with a rocky launch, with captain mode being unbalanced, skirmish just making me feel bad for new players, and siege being unbalanced if funJust like warband the only thing most likely to happen is that playing with friends or in broader words, clans will keep multiplayer alive.
