I've never played Mount & Blade. Is it too late to start this game as a brand new player to the franchise?
Do you intend to play mainly multiplayer?
There you will get slaughtered as a newbie, but besides that the game is a nice singleplayer sandbox. Its never to late to play that.
Play the vanilla warband on easy first to understand how the game works, then check the different mods like game of thrones etc
If you don't buy it now I will literally kill you in real life, OP.
It is the ultimate procrastination tool.
Never once in my 100 hours of playing the game have I said "you know I think I've reached a good stopping point." I always wanted to keep playing, because it's addictive, there's no encouragement to stop, it's fast, but at the same time it takes forever.
Lol I was just about to post this thread.
Will I ever see the skyface glitch?
Lmao, don't get this shit.
I just bought and sinked 7 hours already.
It's one of those games that sucks all your time away.
Unless you're a NEET, get it, otherwise, don't. It's too fucking addicting and I'm actually typing this post with the game alt-tabbed.
you fags haven't even taken over all of calradia yet without cheating, I'm jealous.
although when you get towards the end the game does seem lonely when there's only 2-3 nations left
>want to get this game because curious about all the hype
>massive backlog of games already, a timesink is the last thing I need right now
PC gaming is suffering.
I never understood why people bother with that shit
All you get is two lines of text and a generic image you already saw a thousand times for your "archievement"
I personally could only siege the damn near identical castles with one single tiny siege ladder so many times until it got a little bit dull.
Field battles with the uncapped unit limit mod is where the game really shines.
>Series started a guy and his wife who just wanted to make games
>Becomes a huge success
One of the few feel-good developer stories that hasn't been ruined yet
just a feeling
I've always seen this game 75 or 66 off, but this is my first time witnessing a 85 sale
so yeah i just assume this is a rare occasion
What's the harm of purchasing it now
>never played mount and blade
castrate yourself immedietly
Viking conquest is where it's at.
>better balanced weapons
>way better aesthetics
>armor and weaponry is more diverse
>factions are more interesting
>more to do
>has a zombies/horde mode
Mount and blade warband Viking conquest is the best expansion.
It's simply better in every way, without losing the feel of warband itself.
The only qualm I have about it, and there is only one.
The Irish caurs can have 24 javelins, now imagine a lord fielding an army of caurs, and you get nailed by 30 javelins.
The only way to counter it is to move up behind your men in a shield wall.
The games factions are far better than the original warband factions
Armored tanks with low damage
Hit like trucks but lack quality armor
Decent damage decent armor (I've seen Saxons do well against any enemy)
High quality weapons decent armor (a lot like the Saxons, a good Angle team can take on anyone)
Very Low armor, extremely high mobility, decent damage. (A naked pict with a spear can just out maneuver a Norse Huskarl covered in fully body mail)
Excellent weapons, decent armor. (Above the Saxons beneath the Angles)
A good Briton team is unbreakable though.
Single player is incredible, and demands strategy, battles are huge 750 men, sometimes 1,500 vs 1,500.
Shield walls, masses of archers, cavalry charges like you wouldn't believe, Frankish knights clad in mail just demolishing Viking shield walls.
Multiplayer is skill based way more than the vanilla game.
Each faction can dominate all the others if played by good players who use teamwork. Norse shield walls, Irish charges, Pictish swarms.
No faction is too overpowering, some are preferable for lower skilled players though such for instance the Norse because they have high quality armor, but once you get the hang of it you'll prefer a highly mobile 0 armor pict. Or perhaps a mix between the two.
