Most part of the community play single player, this combat is way better in singleplayer than the old one. Also, all those saying warband was better is subjective. I like Bannerlord way more and I find it more satisfying.The thing is how you spent those hours, did you spend them fighting AI with autoblock, easiest settings etc? It's just annoying seeing SP guys masturbate about the Bannerlord combat without ever really having played the Warband MP properly. I've even had an argument on the subreddit that made the argument that warband combat is just randomly spinning your mouse with the highest sensitivity and that there's no skill in it whatsoever.
