Do note that I have yet to be able to get my firearm skill in over 200, so I might be wrong about that, but I read somewhere that they had overall lower accuracy than bows.

Nord Long Axes will be marked with the "Unbalanced" trait as of the next Warband patch.

Awesome I say. Less naked men and women running around with their feint spamming axe style... so damn annoying.

Now they just gotta fix the sweet spot for two-handers. With that I mean the distance a weapon has to travel before reaching maximum damage.

For example, thrusting with a spear when too close to your opponent doesn't allow the spear to pick up any speed, and thus you just interrupt your opponent without making any damage.

Two-handers however, can be chambered inside the opponent's body and then released for almost maximum damage... which is just ridiculous.

Feels so awesome to use a Pike on a duel server and actually beat people haha... everyone just runs around with their shiny greatswords but me... I bring a stick

FEAR MY STICK! is my warcry.

EDIT: Warband updated!

Shields no longer get damaged when you Chamber block with them!

Nord imba-axes now have unbalanced trait!

And some other small stuff...

Great stuff, especially the axes... less feint-spamming

You time the block with the direction of the blow, and your shield takes no damage. If you just block without intercepting the blow your shield takes damage.

Taleworlds call it chamber blocking as well, even though it isn't really.

Anyway, shields are now even more powerful than before. A person skilled with chamber blocking will never lose his shield when in melee.

Played for 30 minutes now... not sure if I find this game so hot anymore. Combat doesn't really feel exciting anymore, I mean this person in front of me can feint spam all he want but I will block it, and then I'll strike, and he'll block, and I'll strike and it just goes on until one of us makes a mistake. It's starting to feel so mechanical now that I can recognize the animations instantly.

I dunno... I just don't feel any depth in the combat system anymore.

Almost impossible against feint spam and chambered strikes, hard to find people that strike immediately really. Not really viable, especially with a slow connection.

Just had the most epic game I've experienced so far.

22nd Siege Server... 'bout  180 people playing I think. I'm on the defending side and decide to defend our gatehouse and tell it to my teammates.

My teammates ask me to give them status updates now and then on the defense, and I do so. My elevated position also allows me to monitor the rest of the castle efficiently though, so I soon begin shouting out orders in a supa-dupa SPAAAARTAN fashion to everyone.

And amazingly people listen. 90 strangers fighting a non-competitive battle, listen. Amazingly there are no trolls to be found on either side, everyone is just serious and LISTEN TO ME!

"PROTECT LEFT LADDER! SUPPORT TO FLAG! RIGHT LADDER ENEMIES DEFEATED BUT REINFORCE THE POSITION!"

I got a single kill over 2 rounds but it felt like hundreds hahaah... so damn awesome.

While others play yet another first person shoot-with-guns game I play a game where I get to command 90 people desperately defending a gigantic castle from rains of arrows and assaulting enemies.

I just fell in love with this game again. There's nothing like it.

Someone needs to hand Taleworlds a few million dollars for Mount & Blade 2. This game is so damn unpolished and yet it rocks so hard.

Mount & Blade Nexus has been launched.

The M&B Repository is now at home in the Nexus family

EDIT:

There's a 75% discount sale on all M&B titles on Steam right now.

You can grab all of them including the newly released Napoleonic Wars expansion for like, 10$.

WORTH IT!

I just won a major battle on single-player FaS, my army 49, vs 200 angry Swedes.

My main, well stuff:
3-Veteran Winged Hussars
9-Winged Hussars
5-Armoured Cossacks
4-Reiters

The battle was a blood bath, utterly hate the fact that the enemy enters the field in 'batches', kinda screws up my heavy cavalry charge and the fresh enemy troops tend to fall on my somewhat scattered men (the Swedish reiters are particularly annoying)

Anyway, in the end it was just me vs like 18 of them, (I had one dismounted Winged hussar left on the battlefield who tried to help but was cut down instantly) luckily all the musketeers were either dead or routed, so all I did is piss the last of my ammo at them, then charge back and forth with couched lance.

After such a huge victory one of my guys comes up to me and says "I didn't sign up for a blood bath" and I reply "I hope it doesn't happen again" ...........


Tried multiplayer, quite fun, can't shoot for **** though, and fighting people is a whole different level than bots, the arrow showers during sieges was not nice, (I'm holding up my shield and instantly two arrows strike it, then mybloody shield breaks, and shortly after I'm skewered)

And the musket spamm isn't too nice, especially  when the enemies are crackshots, you stand still for more than 0.8 seconds = death. I can avoid cavalry archers simply enough, I love shooting or spearing the horse, then running up to the guy/woman and promptly gutting him before he gets up.

Also NEAR insta kill guns made me move to wear no body armour ( I wear a helmet for style) I one got shot in the head and my helm absorbed it, mostly, (I had 1-10% hp) then my team mate gives me a victory punch, then we laughed in chat.

Nice victory and the fact that it was a swedish army makes the feat if harder. You know how to build wagon fortresses right? Wagon fortresses are awesome if you want to disable enemy cavalry and get nice cover for your musketeers.

You just got to try Captain Coop! The most awesome game mode of awesomeness and it sucks that Warband does not have Captain Coop.

You can use the option tweaks to rise the amount of soldiers on the battlefield to have them all clash at the same time. Mostly depends on your ram, if you raise it too much, the game starts crashing. Just experiment at what works best for you.

500 soldier battles are SWEET!

Started playing Warband today, it has sooo many lovely features, and somehow I feel that the combat and world has a lot more depth to it, also arenas enable you to get some well needed practice, like parrying and such (I won with nothing more than a longsword, ****ing archers, finally learned how to kite too)

The background decisions make the game more personal too, I'm a nomad who came to these lands in search of glory and honour through knighthood. (A mix of the two cultures)

Edit: I enabled save only when quitting, I own my mistakes.

That really is the only way to play. There's just one annoying feature with that. You get lucky shot with an arrow through your head and it means you're taken prisoner? just, wtf? I WANNA DIE AT MOMENTS LIKE THESE!

But it really is so worth it to play through one game just to improve your character and be a good and loyal servant and such just to start the next game with the same character and steamroll through the Rhodoks with your newly recruited Cataprachts establishing your own Kingdom in year one that just does not give a ****.

Would you guys not mind to check my mod in progress which I posted above? I added troop trees in hope of more feedback on TaleWorlds Forum. There is even a cute hedgehog waiting for you there as a reward for checking out the mod.
