    Well if blood and steel doesnt do it for you, you can just invest in your training skill in M&B warband vanilla and fucking shit up is already super easy, you can raise an unbeatable veteran army in like 3-5 days as long as you have the dosh and then. Just get Ymira or Jeremus, put tonnes of points into their surgery skill and you'll have like 0 fatal casualties per battle and your opponent will be cleaning his soldiers off the battlefield with a mop.

    Its good fun when you go to war with like three factions at a time, all these bitches want into my kingdom

    I tried warband after playing wf&s for a good while. My god ranged weapons are even worse than they are in wf&s. Bows and crossbows are like snipers.

    Gave me some hilarious moments though. Like trying to knock out an enemy, just to see an arrow going through you from behind and right in his head, killing him.

    Blood&Steel isn't supposed to be realistic, the mod is seen as one of the best total conversion (I wouldn't say that, I'd rather say funniest total conversion) because it can be summed in 3 words: Fuck shit up

    If you want a more realistic or 'longer' mod try Brytenwalda or Prophesy of Pendor, or hell any of the other mods which there are a crap load. Blood&Steel is that mod you want to play just to mess around and have fun straight in, with all sorts of crazy stuff and huge battles, or have an unfair difficult challenge if you play it on the hardest difficulty/setup.
    Even still, I don't see the point in making an entire mod that starts you at the end game but doesn't start the quests there. Yep, let me recruit my 20 men at a time to take on 4 for the tutorial. It seems like a shortcut to the actual end-game where you can do the same thing, meaning kill people in one hit, while not having the same happen to you as it does in this mod.

    I checked out Brytenwalda. It is fairly nifty looking but I CBA to figure it out at the moment because of how much it adds.

    That's true, but to be honest, imo it takes too long to get to endgame gameplay. And by the time you get there it seems pointless to continue.

    Yeah that's a bit silly. But it's the same on the wall. You kill 90% of the defenders, retreat and start away from the wall with them on the wall again.

    A bit too easily. Raiding villages in wf&s will make you bitchrich in matter of a few ingame days.

    I remember buying mercenaries with the starting money, and raiding a polish village.
    That gave me enough to buy more mercenaries. Repeat repeat repeat... and soon I found myself having a glorious army
    of best equipped mercenaries, excellent armor and weapon and marching towards besieging a major polish city.

    It was fun as hell though

    You can also earn a shitton trading. It's so easy to earn money trading it feels like cheating.
    when i start a new game i take a loan to buy my first troops.

    I like how soon you can have a half decent army in wf&s.

    It kind of throws more straight into the action. I actually kind of like it.
    I just recently started a new Warband game, completely fresh, with a maxed out character.

    Its god damn fun, and doesn't really loose much on fun value, since I know all the leveling up and all that already

    That's the point basically, not quests or advancing through the game adquiring fame and money and all that stuff, but big battles with all sorts of weapons and armors and different units. When I first played it I was amazed by the sheer amount of crazy and weird weapons, there's even an axe-gun, that's bloody awesome. I really wouldn't say it's a really well made mod on which they've worked a lot, I view it as a fun one.

    It simply may not be the kind of gameplay you desire and you get more fun from other things, that's why you might enjoy other mods more than B&S, as I do too (I really don't have the patience anymore to play those massive difficult mods simply because the gameplay has become too repetitive for me, I'm talking about quests and that sort of stuff you can do. I would love a mod that would let you do more things aside from the default boring quests, fighting, or trading between cities and joining tournaments and that stuff. I don't really know how to explain it)

    It's all about tastes baby

    I think blood and steel is todays A shield Lying On The Water.
    It had tons of new content and was pretty balanced too. It was all about the battles, not so much about the quests.

    Its like People Soup for Stalker. It doesn't really fit into the game, but some people don't mind, and they enjoy the fun it gives.

    Damn, those are some nice models, 95% of the models used for M&B mods look like something ripped from PS1 games, which sucks because the engine used is definitely capable of using much higher detailed stuff.

    Imagine this in warband with raiding bands of orcs, uruk-hai and nazgul warparties and shit. If I didnt find M&B modding so convoluted and disorganized I'd probably start one myself, but I just keep hoping somebody comes along and makes one :[

    There was a lord of the rings mod for the original M&B back in beta called "The Last Days" (http://forums.taleworlds.com/index.php?topic=5204.0 OLLLLD THREAD). It was huge and amazing. Then the guy with all the code just disappeared one day and the rest of the mod team had no idea what happened to him.

    They picked up the pieces (or maybe he eventually came back. I stopped keeping track) and have been slooooowly updating it. No release version yet, but their moddb page remains active, as do their forums.

    I wonder if they use a new engine in Mount and Blade 2. The current one is fine, although I wouldn't mind better graphics here and there. I'd rather have it more like just a new maximum setting, than overall, so that basically anyone who played Mount & Blade could play the sequel with "low" graphics, which would be basically the same as "High" in the first game.

    But honestly I'd rather have even worse graphics, but the ability to make really enormous battles.

    Even though Mount and Blade's online community is terrible, me and my roommate playing Fire and Sword together is pretty fun.

    Hey man, go go go go I got your back
    Where are you
    Behind you, keep g- OH GOD I'M HIT.
    WHERE ARE THEY SHOOTING FROM, I CA- BLARGH

    This happens virtually all the time, and I still think it's terrific fun. I think if I didn't have someone to talk and joke with the entire time, I'd get really bored and pissed off with it. Also, a mounted cavalry charge into a line of musketmen is terrifying and exhilarating at the same time.

    Also saw a guy with a shield on his back, a shield on his arm and a sword running around in warband MP, practically invincible when fighting archers. It was glorious.
