Wouldn't splitting servers be overall detrimental to the population that wants to play on decently populated servers?

Yes.

One more thing, survival/battleroyale game mod should be easily doable because all the ingredients for it are present in the game as existing game mechanics. Remove/disable equipment dialog when joining the server, use catapult mechanics to create/craft items from previously collected ingredients, those weapons and armor would be the only weapons and armor present on server besides primitive weapons like sticks and short staves which would be scattered around the map. You could also put weapons in locked chests and put them in castle chambers. I'm fairly sure any semi competent dev could cook up some battle royalle gamemod from existing Warband mechanics. Rageball is more complicated to make.

That could revive the mod.

Pretty simple reason why Battle Royale mode won't work. We have different builds in this game. Unless you're super pro rocking the 15/15 build with 5 points in everything, battle royale is only going to favor the player that finds the correct weapon first. Maybe that's the point you're going for, but if it is, then that is pretty dumb.

Only revival of this mod left to try, since the squeakiest wheels are against a wipe, would be bring back the old XP methods as Sauce has suggested in a previous post. While, nothing new, perhaps this dev team will actually do it. Other than that, this mod is really limping along and has been for quite some time. Let's not kid ourselves, 20 person strat battles are not grounds to say the NA population is really ramping up lol. I do not think a separate server for new character creation is necessary but that's what prof is doing. I think it would've been better to wipe strat (since it was kind of fucked up and exploitable), add proximity xp and gold gain, and make heirloom exchanges/heirloom points purchasable on the main shop page. I'm not the one with the coding knowledge so I can only give ideas and if I knew how to code it, I'd do it myself.

I'd like for a battle royale mode to work, but i dont think it will be very good even with mechanics working properly. Maybe im wrong but i feel as if it would just be people avoiding conflict, and no way to catch up to those running. That it would boil down to backstabs only. Im a bit overly cynical maybe because while it seems like it could be a disaster it also seems like it could be amazing.

The simplest method would simply be to place breakeable boxes around that contains whatever useful item like a healing thingy or a weapon. And maybe run some gimmick on the air drop idea everyone has, a temporary horse to get to whatever spot you want, which despawns after a timer or something stupid  :mrgreen:

18/18 build with all maxed stats, no ranged weapons but maybe some throwing stuff, theres potential out there.. maybe in bannerlord.

Who can be bothered retiring again? If there is a wipe then there should be a huge lessening of the grind to compensate and maybe tweak loomed items. Make them optional sidegrades maybe rather than pure upgrades to unloomed gear. So + armour but + weight at the same time or something, and for weapons + armour but -speed to compensate.

Otherwise there might as well be a server with no looms and all players are set to a certain level. Or it will just end up as the loomed vs unloomed which is more of a power gap than what we have now were everyone has looms

6. Ive said it before, ONCE A WEEK, EVERYONE SHOULD GET A FREE HEIRLOOM EXCHANGE. We have tons of armours, why restrict different gamestyles? Cant you see that restrictions are forcing people away from the mod?

I would love to see this done. It could be abused for flavor of the month weapons that recently got buffed, but it would be nice to change your loomed armor now and then. Armor is mostly just personal preference, you wear the ones that you think look cool and either go light, medium, or heavy.

irl something shorted on the shuttle and laika overheated and died within a few hours of liftoff and for a brief while one could look up to the stars and see a light shooting across the sky that was actually a warm dog corpse slingshoting about the earth at thousands of miles per hour which was arguably humanity's greatest achievement so far

If you're gonna shitpost about the fact that Kadeth is Australian, at least do it properly. For example:

That'd be real awesome Kadeth! But I wouldn't want to get YOU banned. I thinm there's some murky rules against sharing accounts to avoid bans
