Hi folk,

as in the subject. Anybody willing to give it a try?  :grin:
I was playing in the Kingdom of Mercia gameserver today, but it is with the viking invasion mode only...

If there is a bunch of say, 2-6 people, I think we could try to host the game ourselves and try to set up a couple of matches. What about tomorrow evening, 13th of april? so round about 21:30 german/italian time I could be there.

Post here anybody interested!

regards,
Beron

Hey Beron. A bit too late for me, sadly. But it would definitely be fun to get some games going.
It seems Viking Invasion is the only mode available. Wait, I'm a developer, so I should use my influence to change that  :smile:

I cannot open posts in that subforum, so I posted here, but if you allow me, I will post there.

so I want to check the warlords-mode... it has enormous potential, really...  :fruity:

what do you mean Adorno? I can host a game with the mode "warlords", at least I did it yesterday. Nobody entered, so I quitted, but I was on the field looking for the enemy champion  :fruity: perhaps you mean you can influence the mode in "Kingdom of Mercia" server?  :fruity:

Beron

I meant the official servers could have more game modes.
But great that you can host. What about this weekend (Saturday-Sunday). I'm free then  :smile:

I cant create a thread on "Viking Conquest Multiplayer Events", but I can on the child forum Zeta.

Maybe that is the issue he is talking about.

So, this evening did not work properly, but Adorno showed me a Link on how to forward your port for M&B, and i could test it with a certain Thogril, or something like that (my name was Mad_Max).
(Thogril did not get how it is working, he left the server when he saw my army...)

the link: http://forums.taleworlds.com/index.php/topic,197453.msg4736230.html#msg4736230

So now we could do a proper appointment... when do we want to play? tomorrow (sunday) I don't know yet, I have to find out and if yes I will post here, included servername and password.

cu!

Don't join this server. Beron and his army are invincible.  :lol:
ehm, of course, I am invincible  :lol: afterall I am a veteran of the mythical on-line campaign of Brytenwalda of Idibil and Adorno:  :mrgreen:
http://forums.taleworlds.com/index.php/topic,239108.0.html

no, really, there is a lot to learn about the game mode Warlord battles, if you choose the wrong army, for example, you stand no chance. The last game we have choosen a similar army, Phaiak, and that was very close. I think i won only because I forgot to purchase a shield for me! is not a joke, it costs 400+ schillings, so 2-3 elite soldiers more. This is another important trick: don't spend all the money for your equipment, because the spare money will be used to purchase more troops, which are much cheaper.
Did you notice the ping? was it high?

perhaps another useful link of the gamemode Warlords Battle, which is also offered by Brytenwalda mod of Warband:
http://forums.taleworlds.com/index.php/topic,238657.0.html

A message for the one guy who entered first and left after the first game: you should try again mate, I was myself not so aware that the experience of the campaign in Brytenwlda is an advantage: I am more than willing to share what I do, to even up the odds and get a fun game.

ah, I almost forgot the most important question: is it worth to play the new game mode "Warlord Battle"?
to make it short: it is a whole new game. It is not Mount and Blade, it is not Total War, is damn close to both and a new thing by itself. As in M&B single player you command an army of soldiers, but you are not playing against AI: you are playing against a human. Imagine how can it be in even a small 3vs3 player: 200 bots, two armies trying to outflank each other, cavalry, infantry, archers, position, timing, coordination... the more the players the more the tactics, and if you choose to play the champion, you can search the field for the enemy commanders like an assassin, or you can enter the fray in its most cruent point, slain tens of bots, turn the tide of battle...

A shame to let it stay forgotten, and a lost chance. So we play it, ok?  :wink:

Maybe if you get other some parthners, I could convince to Adorno, Phaiak, Caesar, Juju or Slawomir for mega battle.  :mrgreen:
