    A guy on my friends list told me to get this cRPG mod, but it has so much stuff to do before you can get to play... its taking ages to download.

    I tried betraying my faction with the claimant, got a fortress but they had SO MUCH PEOPLE striking me over and over, it was impossible. Also the few lords I had a decent relation with (read: +4, +6) didn't want to join me.

    Glad I backed my save up

    Head to Tihr while stopping at any city you find along the way. One of those cities will have to have a Ransom Broker and if not, you can sell the prisoners to Ramun in Tihr, although you'll get less money. Sometimes theirs a Ransom Broker AND Ramun in Tihr so you might get lucky. Don't forget to check the upstairs of taverns. Sometimes NPC's spawn there if the tavern gets full.

    Found one of the last holdouts from Swadia. Even though he had no army, and agreed with me in everything in the dialogue, he refused to change sides.

    Just a tip, cRPG is not noob friendly at all, it's your average MP mod where the rich gets richer and the poor gets poorer.

    I've played cRPG for over 2 years now and that's been holding true for the entire 2 years.

    Of course, if earning weapons and better equipment for your character is still your thing then I recommend Nord Invasion. All the players are on the same team against swarms of Nordic invaders.

    Pretty much, if you're on NA too, the Trend seems to be strenght builds, so anything that's 30/9 or 27/12, at this point, even 24/15 builds are considered balanced builds which is really retarded.

    From what I heard, EU is more about balanced and agility builds, so 15/24 or 18/18 18/21 21/18 and the likes.

    I'm a HUGE fan of agility builds, I play a 12/27 with 9 athletics, it's great because you can dance around 5 guys at once and win if you know what you're doing since the strenght stackers won't ever catch up to you unless it's raining (Shitty athletic debuff when it rains because it's percentage, so the faster you are, the slower you are to the point where slower builds catch up to you npnp).

    Only problem with a 12/27 build is my hits are pretty weak and I have to rely on Speed bonus alot and a single mistake will cost me my life because I'm squishy.

    So, you hit this strenght guy in heavy armor 8 times, then he just gets a lucky hit on you or you make a mistake or he starts spinning like a retard because you win MP by spinning and spamming feints then he one hit kills you on the backhit of his overhead that he accidently did on you.

    As a newbie you easily earn money. As a longtime player you can't even wear the best equipment all the time because it drains your funds.

    And this is where you're horribly wrong.

    Upkeep is useless to long time players, they have several millions in their moneypool just waiting to get used up so they couldn't give less of a shit with upkeep.

    Not to mention the fact that they can just retire, sell a heirloom point for 600,000 gold and be able to play a full generation in the most expensive gear.

    I once played an entire generation with 100,000 gold worth of gear and in the long run I actually made money, not much at all, but I still made money, started the generation with 20,000 gold and finished with 40,000 gold.

    What do you mean how does that even work?

    And it's because Plate is not aesthetically good looking and has a mobility and proficiency penalty to it and most players care about that, so they just get the med-heavy armor they think look the best and heirloom it to lordly along with gloves, effectively giving them more protection than unheirloomed plate for much less weight, thus making you keep your mobility and you also lose less proficiency from the weight.

    I'm not sure that's how it works. Horses just apply a speed bonus to any troops. So if you had a 100% cavalry army, you'd move lightning quick. This is the reason khergit armies move freakishly fast.

    Does that mean if you just keep horses in your inventory you go faster, or do you mean giving horses to your companions?

    Giving horses to all your companions. For every "mounted" troop in your party you recieve a tiny percentile speed bonus. If a companion has a horse, they count as mounted.

    Not really,you get lots of gold for better equipment fast,although the levelling(and managing to actually get kills)curve is pretty high.

    Its best to take a castle when the kingdom is at war with multiple factions or be rewarded them from the king (if you are serving under them). What I did was made my own kingdom in the desert and took the 3 very far castles away from everyone else so the only people who could attack me were Sarranid Sultanate, but they were being raped by 3 Kingdoms at once so they basically left me alone as I took their keeps for my own (they ended up making peace with me without conflict).

    Next I recruited characters in taverns and made them my vassals and gave them towns and castles so now I have my own little kingdom that is doing very well in a very naturally defended place. So now I all you have to worry about is good trading and getting people to recognize your rule.

    I took Veluca from the Sarranids. It wasn't very well defended.

    Little did I know that it was the wealthiest town in the realm at that time:

    I'm mostly talking about how all the players that have played for a long time have every single of their equipment pieces heirloomed to +3 along with a moneypool of over 1 million gold to easily pay upkeep for anything they might decide to wear, even full plate on a plated charger with a Danish GS with a German GS on their back, for a full generation and still easily have over a million gold left when their generation is done.

    Edited:

    What's your IGN?
    I've used shitloads of ingame names.

    I don't know when you started playing so I don't know which one you might know, if you started playing recently, the only character I really play (Which by really play I mean play like once or twice a week at this point) would be Execration.

    Hell, I'll just make a list of all the prominent characters I've played.

    I've been going under Borealis, Patricia, Kristina, Execration, Oggrog, Amethyst, Opal, out of all my characters, those are probably the most well known (Not that they're really known as I only play a few days a week and usually on the smaller population servers like NA Community).

    That's a tax buildup. I think if they stay under sequestration for a while you get a bit of a wealth overflow.

    Oh, thanks.
    It's just the king i'm serving under, Sultan Hakim practically never goes to war, thus i can't help him in wars and as such can't gain his favor, so i'm never actually gifted a castle or territory.
