  2. >hmm these guy’s strongest point is speed and mobility
    >yes, i’ll let them go get stuck in a horse moshpit!
    cavalry is so OP it’ll still work out if you have high-tier cavs on near-invulnerable war horses though

    • Yeah all I ever did in warband is form a swarm of heavy cavalry and smash them into the enemy.
      It wasn’t as effective for sieges but they were armored well enough to match most ground troops.

  3. M&B an the Mad Max game are among the most underrated games I know. Sandbox open world is fun AF.
    Some anons hate them because they only work on a leash, constantly told what to do in an extremely strict linear campaign.

    • Mad Max is a fantastic game for half a game
      as soon as I got to the other half of the world map and realized it’s the exact same as the first half of the game and you do it all again I got immediately burned out and just blitzed the story missions to the end of the game

  4. Never player M&B but as a Kenshi and rimworld homosexual I feel I could enjoy it a lot.
    What’s the current state of Bannerlord? Is it worth it? any mandatory mods or it’s the classic "play vanilla first to figure out what you need to mod for your taste"?

  5. My favorite trick is to go to the edge of the map where there’s an invisible wall and just sit there while all of the cavalry slams itself against it and comes to a dead stop. Then I get off my horse and beat them to death with my mace.

  6. Any cool mods to try out? I’d prefer new interactions(like stuff to do in towns etc) buy I don’t mind overhauls either. Is there a fantasy one where you can play a wizard/lich and can have an army of skellies?

    • Best gothic revamp bar none is Solid and Shade, it’s basically a necromancy simulator in the style of classic folklore. Downside is it’s only for original mountain blade, not warband

      • Any good mods to go with Dickplomacy? I felt like the actual gameplay was still too vanilla for me or was unavailable because of how buggy it is.

        • If you’re looking for something less vanilla then Dickplomacy isn’t the way to go. Phantasy Calradia, Blood and Steel and Warsword Conquest all add new elements to the gameplay (namely magic). If that is still too familiar you might want to try Paradigm Worlds.

        • Dickplomacy Reloaded is a very good modpack with custom banners and troop trees and if that is still to vanilla try Silverstag

    • warsword conquest, it’s polished, still updated, it imported warhammer into warband, with different races to play, wizard stuff and skellies for you homosexuals to play with.

    • I liked playing Medieval Conquests, you could also try Warsword conquest, the warhammer mod, and play as the tomb kings or vamp coast to use skeles. Warsword is pretty jank but in a fun way.

    • AD1257 is great if you want to play on medieval europe, all fantasy mods are quite unbalanced and difficult to go throught if you don’t have any previous experience with the game, Pendor is shit and is only carried by its braindead fans, the only good thing about that mod is that it’s very well optimized, perisno is a better alternative for fantasy but suffers from the same problems but to a lesser degree, Warsword conquest is just a bunch of shit thrown together into a warhammer mod, its super unbalanced and some of the features it has go from completely useless to rage inducing, the best mod of all still is Paradigm Worlds by far

    • last i tried Phantasy Calradia was still a pretty decent Fantasy mod, but kinda barren since it reuses the vanilla map and some of the factions while changing their units

    • I support the anons suggesting 1257 AD and add 457 AD for a fall of the Roman empire version of that. Also Gekokujo if you’re a weeb.

      As far as fantasy goes The Last Days is pretty good if you’re into LotR, and Warsword is supposed to be good to but I’m not into Warhammer shit. I think that ones has skeletons in it, but I don’t know if you can be a necromancer.
