Anybody else obsessed with this series ?

Bannerlord is set to release in less than 3 months now - it's finally almost harvesting season for real!

I've played the closed multiplayer beta for about 40 hours and that has me super hyped, but I have more fun with singleplayer so I've been revisiting Warband in the mean time, currently playing The Last Days of the Third Age (TLD) mod which is set in the Lord of the Rings universe where you can choose to play as nearly any faction, good or evil. I'm not even a big Tolkien-nerd but this mod is fantastic and has really pulled me in - something about slaying orcs is really satisfying in a way killing humans isn't, and watching my line of 30 or so elven archers decimate waves of 100+ orcs never gets old.

It's going to ship as an early access alpha. I have no clue what's going to be missing on initial release but it sounds like something will be.
Odd since the development cycle is already twice as long as most games.

Damn y'all are suspicious.. I mean I know the development cycle has basically become a meme at this point but when it's actually released, whatever state it's in, I'm happy - and especially excited to see the mods that follow.

I don't think anybody really expects anything besides an updated Warband with some quality-of-life improvements and enhancements, and that looks like exactly what we're getting.

Been playing the butterlord beta the past couple of weeks. It feels pretty damn good but all I want is the single player and the mods that will come eventually.

That's why you use Rhodok Sharpshooters. They have medium armour and carry huge fuck off hammers and shields in addition to their crossbows. Only unit you need in the entire game.

I exclusively recruit Khergits and spend the whole game pillaging the Vaegir countryside. Me and the horde are wintering in Suno now. We've got enough cash keep everyone neck-deep in butter for months on account of all the pillaging we do in the spring summer and fall.

Just because I like enslaving a certain kind of troops doesn't mean I belong to their nation. Bonus: My slaves carry blunt weapons, which lets me capture more slaves.

Thats it. Me and the horde are moving out of Suno. These faggots eat too much butter their hands are all slippery. We're gonna seek safe harbors in Wercheg, then we're gonna come back and burn your whole fucking agricultural production base to the ground.

Horse archery is op for a player character but at least unmodded the AI doesnt know what to do and they just end up fighting like regular cavalry but without armour or melee weapons

It really hurts the khergit competitiveness since their lancers are also the weakest heavy cav unit and they dont even have infantry

There's a problem with Horse archery AI where they forget to switch back to archery when they've gone into melee mode once, IIRC.

You can fix it by babysitting them with the command keys.

Don't forget pissing the locals off so no one wants to join your army afterwards. The AI is dumb as hell in this regard.

Maybe they fixed it but last time I played siege by attrition wasn't an effective way to take a city when you had enough troops to prevent the castle from just sallying out, but not enough to storm the walls.
The troop+militia presence would decrease to some arbitrary number and then the militia presence would rebound and remain steady.

If you want a single player game with a sandbox style campaign then M&B is some good shit. Lots of mods as well to keep shit fresh. If you're only looking for multiplayer though then yeah you're better off just playing chiv or mordhau.

Holding the castle/city is just a more efficient and less tedious way of continually looting the villages for you.
Why burn the village down once a month for like ten bucks at the expense of seasoned troops every month when you can take a local city/castle and make far more gold without having to risk any troops?
