    So I was rescued a Lord in Brytenwalda and I noticed more than a few nations hated me.

    Almost half the map, to be precise.

    I was wondering why, then I realized that I was helping out Mierce.

    I can see how that could rustle more than a few Brythonic jimmies.
    Try being part of Fortriu

    "_________ has declared war on Fortriu" is like some sort of national pastime, errybody hates me.

    Getting killed because you get horsebumped by teammates is wonderful.

    Edited:

    Actually, losing a fight because you get horsebumped at all is fucking annoying, but it's twice as bad if it's a teammate.

    Cavalry in general are annoying as fuck in MP, especially in napoleonic wars. If your cavalry teammates aren't swooping in on your melee battles to steal your kills, you're getting lanced in the back by inaudible stealth-cavalry.

    Cavalry are really easy to kill, as most of them suck balls.

    In native, sure. They're OP as FUCK in crpg. Considering several lances outrange some of the spears (even good spears like the war spear) and best case scenario you have several people on your team diverting all their attention to keeping cav away and then most likely your infantry gets rolled

    This game would be better if it was called "& Blade"

    Yeah seriously, the war spears in this game are the lenght of a real life's shortened spear and pikes are the lenght of actual war spears, the shortened spear is just a small stick with a pointy end.

    I also absolutely hate archers and cavalry for that, enemy or teammates, when I get shot by an arrow and get staggered, making the guy I was fighting for a minute kill me, I'm pissed.

    Same with horses, specially because you get knocked down by the air the Horse displace, I can't tell you how many times horses will knock me down despite never touching me in a single map.

    Horses are so strong in cRPG that their mere presence displaces the air around them and shockwave your ass to the ground or something.

    Something else, the hitboxes are poorly done in Warband/cRPG, that's nothing new, but the lances are just absolute bullshit. The hitbox of lances are just a big fucking square infront of it, so even if the actual lance misses you, the fucking HUGE square hit box hit you, so you're dead.

    See this is why I like Brytenwalda. They're practically racist towards cavalry. Get yourself a Briton or Saxon long spear and you can take on any man on a horse. Still need good timing though, but that's fair.

    What's a good mod? i'm downloading Brytenwalda, I think a Sengoku one would be cool but there doesn't seem to be a well polished one. I'm looking for either really well made or very interesting features.

    Interesting note for brytenwalda players, there's two villages along the coast by Suth Seaxe that have Frisian peasant inhabitants, and the Frisians have their own troop tier that isn't displayed in the troop tree.

    Swadia is easily countered with Nords, but i found that Sarranids usually win from Swadians MP.
    The 2 handed swords are great, but it obviously sucks against shields.

    the maps really cool, there's some interesting sub mods like freelancer which lets you be a soldier in a lord's army, all new armor and weapons, all the towns and castles have new scenes and the sieges have various ladders or just a different way to enter. There's a ton more stuff, it's worth a gander.

    It's still in general harder to win a fight with sword and shield than with a 2-hander if you know how to block.

    Edited:

    As Nords against Swadians, I generally take an axe, because most native mp players suck at using 2-handers and usually if you smash their shield they're done for. But then crossbows. And cav.

    Swadians have the strongest lancer cav and lancer cav is the most OP bullshit ever.

    Edited:

    Someone who knows what they're doing on a horse can kill spearmen easily one-on-one, and if they have a lot of cavalry, just lay down and kill yourself and it will be less horrible.

    In a nutshell its just completely different from warband. Much different time era, a lot more features (most of which can be enabled/disabled if you like/dont like them) it's pretty historically accurate and encompasses kingdoms and nobility that actually existed.

    If you're into the history of ancient britain then it's worth looking at, if you're not then its just a very feature complete and challenging mod with a new gameworld, new weapons/armor and what have you.

    Yeah axes are the way to go for Nord.
    I found some good high skill servers so i find that smashing shields doesn't really result in an easy win. It's easier that's for sure, and the stun after the shield breaks works wonders as well.

    I usually get tired of blocking after 5 blocks and that's usually when people kill me in an even fight, but luckally it's not just about knowing how to block, and most people are far worse than i am.

    I hate it when I pull off shit for blocks in a fight

    Usually if I start off strong I can keep going for a while but my biggest problem is getting caught off-guard and throwing the first 1 or 2 blocks wrong. Then I usually either stabilize or just die.

    I enjoy it, but it's definitely not for everyone. The weapons balance is still wonky, and cav are mostly useless.

    Cavalry are insanely OP. If you are cavalry and can't rake up a 10:1 k/d ratio you're doing something wrong.

    agree on weapon balance though. The bayonets are like death on the end of a stick, uber fast, pierces armor and pretty much a one hit kill in most circumstances while every other weapon requires 2-3 hits.

    (SVNs are a big hassle)

    M&B crashed the first time ever in 200~ hours. I was just starting out in 1257 and I had JUST won against a lord's army as a lord myself, 99 vs 125. Safe to say, it crashed before it autosaved :(

    Oh man, Brytenwalda (and native warband) has some cool features I just found out about, Mierce was getting destroyed due to fighting on 3 fronts, a lot of their Lords were captured, I was trying to marry one of their daughters, but just before I got to him to pay the ridiculous dowry, he was captured too. So I followed the guy who captured him who I wasn't at war with, he deposited him in a town and we had a god damn prison break. Never knew you could do this in native, so I busted him out and then went and got the king and another two lords out. The East English are beating everybody so I needed them to put up a fight while I conquered some weaker southern countries. Then I was going to help out.

    Luckily though two lords rebelled against the english and brought back previously defeated kingdoms such as the East Saxons and some other one. So shits looking cash.

    also, badass villagers.
