Sergeant at Arms
Bannerlord shouldn't need mods to be enjoyable though. They've had plenty of time and resources.I like the way you put it here. I was trying to pin down why people praise Warband so much while it was actually really bad without mods, and it took years for those good mods to appear. Bannerlord hasn't got a proper chance to be improved with mods like Warband did because it's still in EA. People love the idea of what Bannerlord could have been, and are disappointed that it falls short on those expectations.
Using mods as an excuse wouldn't fly very well in most other games.
