Tried the Beta just to check all the fuss, and that multiplayer is just an unpolished mess. Everything feels so disconnected, left me disgruntled.

Hope the Single Player Campaign is good to make me consider getting it before a sale.

I finally sat down and tried the beta yesterday, definitely won't be buying this one for multiplayer, if at all. The combat felt clunkier and more sluggish than war of the roses ever did. Just gotta hope that the singleplayer can make it worth it, otherwise I sure ain't buying it until some good mods drop.

I gave it a couple week attempt, but the multiplayer combat feels horrible.  Not exactly sure where the problem is, but it just feels like shit.  I'll be buying it for single player, but going to ignore my emotional ties to Warband and do what I would with any other game like this, gonna wait to see progress and it go on sale.  Will likely only be playing for single player until mods fix the game.

No clue how it could have possibly taken almost a decade to make this game, the only thing that makes sense is the rumors that they had some sort of issue (malware encryption maybe, or servers/backups failed) where they basically had to scrap progress after working on it for a few years and start from scratch.

All they need to do is to slap new graphics on old mechanics. But just like most devs, they were too full of themselves and thought they could improve upon Warband. Like chadz and cmp, like War of the Roses guys...

Once you get used to new animations and small changes its basically exactly the same combat system really. Its funny how knee jerk people playing wb online for 10 years are, I was even feeling the same when I first tried it - it just felt wrong.

If anything taleworlds went too safe. They didn't try to add any real meaningful additions to the combat such as stamina, which means pvp fighting is still 100% about spamming+timing with no real tactical considerations. I think donkey crew touches on what I mean when they talk about stamina halfway thru this video:


Anyway I'm definitely buying bannerlord day one, are you kidding? I will probably spend like 3k hours in the singleplayer even if I never touch the multiplayer. waiting 10 years, upgraded my pc mainly for bannerlord.

Pretty much. They even removed chambering. Gave all classes such low Athletics that they effectively removed footwork, too. The only redeeming quality is the animations, those are nice. Combat needs a ton of balancing. Luckily it seems they are listening to the community. The state of it right now is, it'd be almost fun if it wasn't so sluggish.
This is about being straight out retarded. Children see in slow motion like owls.

but they didn't. It's a bit harder and needs a bit of a buff, but they never removed chambers

but yes I also don't like that its so sluggish, with a little bit of footwork you were able to fight halfway decently against a crowd, in bannerlord fighting against 2 is quite a challenge, against 3 a death sentence (unless they're really stupid). But a lot is just stuff getting used to, when it comes to Warband Vanilla, it is pretty similar for me, that's why I got high hopes in mods.

stamina
thank god we didn't get that, that would take a lot out of fun out of the gameplay. Stamina has been discussed a lot in the past years (in all its various ways of working with the gameplay)and in the end the conclusion was always the same: it just wouldn't work well

I can get used to the combat, same way I got used to warband combat when crpg died. Its the forced armor that sucks along with faction peasant weapons, some get 1h sword some dont i.e. vlandia choose from stupid sickle or hammer. Also not being able to choose weapons you dont want to carry i.e. I like the asserai peasant 1h sword but am forced to carry 2 bags of throwing items that I dont want to carry. Its always fun getting lanced in back of head while trying to adjust my loadout because I couldnt do it in class/gear selection screen before spawning in.
