Oceanic NW Discussion
« on: September 22, 2017, 01:42:22 am »
Generic thread to discuss issues and generic stuff relating to oceanic NW community.

So.....how come we don't have more cavalry or artillery units?

Because Cavalry isn't a thing and artillery is much better suited to being a detachment

Isn't a thing yet.  ;)


You could make the same argument about skirmishes / riflemen being "only suited to a detachment". What it really comes down to is interest. If enough people are passionate about something, they'll form a group for it.

Forgive me bed, not being hostile at all. I've been up since 4am and the best way to communicate right now for me is in a short and direct manner

Sorry to come off as hostile brother <3

Perhaps there aren't more cavalry and artillery units because people/the current leaders aren't interested in those specific classes? I'm sure there will be more cavalry units in the future when its an actual class; though from my experience most people prefer the line infantry side of the era.

Plus certain leaders may prefer the historical background and roles behind many line infantry/guard regiments instead of most cavalry regiments. Just my 2 cents.

Edit: usually classes such as artillery and light infantry are detachments within regiments anyways; since those classes don't require many men to field (Light infantry were a detachment historically aswell) so I don't see the need for dedicated regiments for those 2 classes (apart from the historical skirmisher regiments of course).

To my knowledge, there won't be any options for modding; such as replacing uniforms with custom regiments and so on. The closest we'll get to "modding" is being able to make custom maps with their editor.

Unrelated but has anyone been to a pub in Sydney called "The Hero of Waterloo"?

Has some great history about Sydney, Waterloo and the Napoleonic War.

Worth a visit

All things considered Bob, it's hardly surprising. You've created quite the reputation for yourself. Your notoriety isn't doing you any favours, doesn't matter if it's a different game. You've got a lot of work to do if you want to repair your image.
I doubt I called him illegitimate, sir. I probably called him a bastard.

I've already accepted that no matter what I do, I will never be able to repair whatever image you have of me. 8 months away from warband and you still can't get past your own snob opinion of me highlighting that teamkilling is a problem. I've already suggested serverside config settings to solve this problem. http://www.holdfastgame.com/forum/index.php?topic=2142.0

Jeez, and i thought I had a bad rep. As Sharpe said, it's hardly no surprise. You were a known and confessed DDOS'er.

When people openly brag about ddosing in the community - well - you're not made of Teflon buddy. Some shit just won't wipe off.

Ya got me, I hacked em, and ddosing servers is what I do to get my jollys *rolls eyes*.

You've previously pushed an agenda like everyone else to try and manipulate a video game for some ego points.
You're a two faced person who's betrayed every person / reg / group you've been apart of.
Lets go down to your level for a moment.

Maybe you should do as you preach and try "building bridges". I'm not going away anytime soon.
Despite the propaganda, I'll attempt to do everything in my power to assist who needs it, slap who deserves it and handshake anyone who is willing. Its a fresh start for everyone, including you.
