    I just make renown give more max party size. Can't be bothered to max out charisma just for leadership when I could be actually improving my character. The most renowned man ever known to Calradia probably shouldn't be wanting for more recruits willing to join him, anyway.

    Yeah, same, I tweaked alot of values in the game by a small percentage like, I believe leadership only gives you +20 party size, I made it instead somewhere in between 25-30, as well as renown giving +1 party size per every 10 renown instead of 20.

    How do you edit game values like that (changing how much renown gives you, etc)?

    Anyone play Europe 1200? Im a vassal of the Irish Kingdoms (only because the Welsh Principalities were almost immediately eliminated). Then we took the Kingdom of Connacht. Currently at war with the Crown Of Aragon for some reason

    I managed to get me a castle and a village. My vassals are my husband and some other dude that appeared in my hall one day.
    I gave the latter the village, but turns out that eats up my husband's relation which is now at -9 from 15
    Also my village is never left up, there's always people looting it

    it sucks

    Nothing worse in Warband than finding out that you've sworn an oath to the overall weakest faction after 1000 days and taking over half the map with them.

    The website is bugged as far as I know, on my level 26 archer, all I have is 18 kills and 12 death, seems highly unrealistic.

    I would normally think they're rather strong cause they're mostly Cavalry right?
    Also i love the Nords, once you get huscarls it only takes like 50 of them to take down a medium sized army

    The Khergs are ALL cavalry, and I can wipe the floor with them. It has nothing to do with that.

    The main armies (not yours) usually don't have (many) of those units. The lower Sarranid soldiers are much weaker than the rest, whilst the strongest are the strongest.

    Speaking from a Vanilla perspective-
    As someone on the TaleWorlds forums said: "The only things the Khergits are good at are being taken prisoner and dying." A good Nord or Rhodok shield wall makes quick work of any Khergit army, Swadian cavalry beats them at their own damn game and Sarranids might as well be Calradic for "Desert Swadians." A fight between Khergits and Vaegirs is essentially a battle for "Who is the worst faction in the game?"

    Wait, Vaegirs sucked? I always thought they were all-around and had good top-tier infantry.

    Why must I always commit to the weakest faction because they're cool?

    I've found the Nords to be the most frustrating. They have a seemingly endless amount of troops, and said troops have a lot of variety when it comes to combat (huscarls w/ throwing axes, sword/shield, two handed axes). Although they lack cavalry, if they bunch up, they kill the horses and then swarm the rider.

    Thats because the AI doesnt know how to ride a horse and just runs straight into the massive clumps rather than circling them/ picking off the stragglers

    No, they actually have the worst infantry in the game (though admittedly not by much), excluding the Khergits (for obvious reasons).
    Also that story about Vaegirs having the best archers is a lie. In classic Mount & Blade they did, but now the Sarranids are the best archers.
    Ironically, since most of their troops, infantry and cavalry, use two-handed weapons, they are actually the easiest to kill with ranged troops, especially since they are not all moving targets, unlike the Khergits.

    Edited:

    Actually, now that I thnk about it from a tactical perspective, it makes sense to lead the Vaegirs to glory. That way when you turn on them sieges won't be as hard as other factions. Nords are famous for fighting on foot so walking up a ladder to 5 Huscarls isn't the healthiest decision. Rhodoks with their crossbows and giant ass shields are pretty much designed for sieges, attacking or defending. Swadian Knights on foot. Nothing more needs to be said. Khergits, oh god everyone of them has a bow and they're aiming at me. Sarranids, oh god it's just like the Swadians but they shoot faster.

    The Vaegirs are still "sort of" the best archers. If you're fighting on the field, vaegir archers will win out in terms of kills and injuries delivered to the enemy. Sarranid archers on the other hand are better defending castles because they have vastly superior armor so they can take multiple hits from crossbows and bows.

    Vaegir Marksmen have a power draw of 5 and have either a Strong Bow or a War Bow. Sarranid Master Archers have a power draw of 4 and always have Strong Bows. On average the vaegirs with their superior power draw and war bows (warbow 25 damage, strong bow 23) will deliver a lot more damage. It depends on how you play tactically. Vaegir Archers are less physically robust but they deliver a much higher damage output so if you use them correctly you can decimate heavy cavalry and heavy infantry with them. If you're stocking troops in a garrison then the sarranid archers are a much better choice because they are the heaviest armored archer in the game.

    Still though, Rhodok Sharpshooter > Everything else. Even with their shit rate of fire Rhodok Sharpshooters are equally as dangerous in melee as they are at range so they are hands down the best "archer" unit in the game. Put 50 rhodok sharpshooters in a castle and they'll hold off an army of 700.

    I feel bad for anyone who has to siege a Rhodok castle. The last time I took part in a siege, the Sergeants formed a shield wall semicircle of death at the top of the ladder.

    So many men gunned down... and the few that made it to the top were torn to ribbons.

    Judging from your earlier posts you didn't really prepare well. It's possible to use all the companions in the game to get you right to rule. Them getting pissed at you is temporary, after about 3 days you'll be able to send them on their Right to Rule mission. Using this you can get almost 50 Right to rule for free. It also all depends on number of companies you own, your relationship with Lords, and your relationship with villages that give your favorite troops.

    Edited:

    Getting hitched is also a good idea for would-be Monarchs. Preferably marry into a family that owns cities.
