Title: Mount and Blade Warband: Napoleonic Wars
Post by: Hawk on January 20, 2017, 05:33:45 pm
Just starting the ball rolling as i'm sure many of you out their are part of/ have been part of the community.

I'll just start the ball rolling by saying i've been part of the NW scene for nearly 4 years now and that if this game holds out for what it's promises and adds more features (more classes such as cavalry, multiple named regiments, more nations, etc.) then i could potentially see it becoming perhaps a replacement for NW as it's a bit of a dated game right now, despite it's popularity.

I would defenitly play this game over NW. NW is really shit if you compare it to the early state of Holdfast already.

NW compared to the trailer of this game is a shit show. Honestly if these devs care about their game, listen to their community and just add more (like more nations) then they've got a really good setup to take NW's community and form their own from other people on steam. I just hope this game isnt released before its done, hopefully its tested and runs well and smoothly. And has cav cause Im a cav nerd

They got Devs from NW (and BCoF) on the team. Expect little and prepare for disappointment. However those devs aren't lead devs so....here's hoping.

NW is based on an engine from 2010 though... and it was released in 2012.

It goes back even further to the original Mount and Blade, so 2008...

Yeah I definitely agree. Of Kings and Men was and is a huge let down. They still have time to fix it I guess but the point remains, we don't need to jump the gun and declare this the "new NW" too early.

It's all about a big change of time and development during the two games ... Just look what we can do today, even if the team is much smaller compare to a new AAA game, it's still possible via a lot of engine to do great things around, and the game will be great, just by having a look at the graphic.
Everyone that hate this game can only be nostalgic.

Frankly I find all of your comments extremely sad. NW is 5 years old and you all forget it was a mod before it was ever a DLC. A quick cash grab by Taleworlds nothing more, was never intended to go as far as it did and the FSE Devs put way more work into it than they probably ever needed too or should have.

They should stray away from the Iron Shackles that are NW and look for its own style of gameplay, of course keeping in a regiment system. I understand the aim of the game is to reach a similar conclusion to NW but it shouldn't be viewed as a NW 2.0 which everyone is doing currently. That will only bring it down.

I want to see this game being thrown into more places rather than just the NW community to attract new players. However if you keep talking about how shit NW was then its only going to make people think there is no hope and that they shouldn't even bother? That's why I had a hissy fit when Docm said that they aren't showing this as an NW remake because they clearly are.

Can you drop this conversation now? I actually would enjoy seeing new people playing.

Actually thinking the same as you, would be sad to say this, but It would be waaaay better if any regiments from NW was here, I wouldn't mind individual people, but not everyone coming in group that will give cancer to every new player because "hey it's been 5 years since we play his daddy game".
Would love to see a lot of new player, and might think of giving money (if I find a donation system around) for a marketing campaign or something similar.
But in the actual moment, with all of us coming from FSE, you can't oppose the fact that people see this as a NW 2.0, we just have to wait, see the real game (that I think, will be way original and far from M&B) to have new players coming on the forums.

It would be fine, but I think the fact that all the alpha testers for this game were NW players kinda says all for me.

I would prefer of it being brought in later on.

I fully agree with what Price said, would be really nice to see new people entering this game rather than just the same old Napoleonic Wars regiments playing around. This game won't be NW 2.0 even though it may look like it now. This game will be way more arcadey (I think) and in my opinion, that is good, because we all want something fresh and new. It is important to attract new people into this game and community, and not just base it off us old guys who are all coming over from NW.

Would also be lovely to see new regiments rise, and not just seeing the same big old regiments that we saw in NW.

Right. I stopped with NW at about the same time but I had a chance to test this game with marks's reg the 1er. No drama from what I know,just a different game being developed. A lot of the community seems to be carrying over though,as you do.

NW is not shit, all of us have thousands and thousands of hours on it. NW community was shit and Holdfast gives us a chance to change that. The whole point, as I see it, is that we'll finally have a standalone game which will constantly be developed, updated and therefore won't die out like NW did.

And for all those who don't like the graphics of Holdfast and keep calling it "an animated cartoon" go play Call of Duty 56 or whichever number they got to now.

@Price, You said you don't want to have the feeling that this is going to be a NW 2.0 but honestly, I personally don't see many other ways to fight during the NW beside the current MB:NW fighting system, if the Dev find an alternative that would be, at least, interesting to play so pls everyone, don't get hysterical :P

Yes of course, otherwise there won't be the Alpha this year, what I mean is that it's only the alpha and I'm sure things will change during the Alpha, or even Beta Stage, if that's not the case it's fine, that just what I think.

What Jelly said, not to mention I do not speak in my post so much about the gameplay itself but more about how they are branding and advertising the game.

Maybe I'm blind but I can't see where they do so. Beside the fact that, as I already stated, this game sets during the NW and is going to be published by, as far as I know, ex-Dev from MB:NW so there is, ofc, a similarity and ofc it is getting much attention from NW side cause the community is waiting for a 2.0, as far as I know.

I don't hink I have to tell you all this cause you maybe know it already, so just, as I already said, calm down and wait for the alpha :D

true, but there is not only the salty nw community ;D which should be taken into account. There are a lot of new potential players out there. And the own inserts like naval battles are needed, to be not only an NW part 2.
From the development blogs we can see they doing well till now, and the game will be sucessfull for everyone wich like the timeline and genre. hopefully  :D

Getting rid of this idea of an old-guard from MM is a good thing; the idea that NW is a secret club only accessible to FSE oldies and whatnot is stupid and does nothing for the community.

Nobody cares how early you played MM or NW if you just ditched it once it wasn't huge anymore, and the idea of these people looking at Holdfast and being disgusted by ideas of innovation/ways to bring in newbies is mad to me.
Why wouldn't you want your game to be fun, popular and approachable for noobs? If you think being around for NW automatically makes you entitled to something a total noob isn't, you're delusional. While some true oldies of the game are still involved in the community beyond just regimental stuff, there is a massive chunk of the playerbase who never even visited FSE.

Personally I think the less space taken up by these regimental folk who treat it all like a super serious business instead of a fun game to play with friends, the better. You can have great organisation and immersion without forcing some faggy elitist attitude on everyone-nothing says shitty community like some 15 year old screeching down a mic at 20 people to stay in a perfect line or he'll ban them.

There's only 2 or 3 non-regimental/bot servers left that are reasonably populated (not sure what NA scene is anymore though we have NA admins so I'm guessing not so hot) and on our server we're working as hard as we can to bring in new people and keep them around so that Holdfast has a bigger community than just a bunch of bickering dusty old fucks from FSE/MM.

NW is a bit janky/wobbly after so many years but at its core it is a fun, well designed game seeing as we can still field battles of 250 players and have it all play it out a fun and immersive way.
Treat Holdfast like a cool sequel as opposed to a waste of time/what should have been there in the first place.

I'm excited, moreso than I am for Bannerlord really. The Holdfast devs have in a few months been more transparent and friendly than Taleworlds have in their entire career.

For those who still play NW, I have made a small sound mod that will keep get updated untill it sounds as realistic as possible.
Thanks to Spoonence for recording.

The main issue should be that as this is an optional download for everyone to do manually, then you'll have people with the patch and people without it which may cause some problems.

I dont think that NW will be rip. I wasnt a tester or something, but a tester wrote his own opinion about the game in the german language board in the fse forum. http://www.fsegames.eu/forum/index.php?topic=36993.0

He said that he thinks, that it probably will be a good casual game but it wont be as good as NW. The gameplay wouldnt look like that it will be possible to create this kind of feeling in a linebattle like in NW. Playing singleplayer or in small groups would be fun, but he doesnt think that the linebattles would be as great and as big like in NW.

cheers

This is the text from Ted:

Ja kp ich hoffe mal, dass das jetzt von gewissen Personen nicht gelesen wird, weil das meinem Account sicherlich nicht gut tun würde.

Hab in letzter Zeit mit einigen Alphatestern geredet und mir das Ganze auch mal selber ingame angeschaut. Mein Eindruck ist, dass es zwar ein ganz gutes Casualgame werden kann bzw. wird, aber bei Weitem nicht an die Funktionalität von NW heranreicht. Das Gameplay an sich erweckt für mich nicht den Eindruck, vernünftige LBs zu ermöglichen - eher das genaue Gegenteil. In Kleingruppen und als Einzelspieler sicherlich genial, aber die Funktionalität in Hinblick auf wirklich große Spielerzahlen ist einfach nicht gegeben.

He thinks Holdfast is only for single players and small groups? Funny stuff. Yea okay 60v60 ist not much, but why so salty against a new fresh game? Not as much functions like NW? Realy?  :o Sure i think at early acess, yea. Does Ted trolling?

Post by: Jack on September 12, 2017, 12:21:53 pm
I think people are just struggling to let go of a game that they have been playing for so long and open their eyes to this new and updated version of Napoleonic wars, where it will be it's own seperate game and not a DLC for another game but as what has been mentioned before, it's better to test the game for yourself when early access is out before putting it down with negative comments before it's even released let alone fully developed :)

I mean if you can't be a melee god why play the game? Then you'd have nothing to put on your resume for a job interview.

Exactly. After i saw these linebattles which were recorded by Resonant, Pixelated Apollo etc. i think that it may be possible to create a beautiful feeling. But i have to test on my own first.

I'm pretty sure M&B is too old for an update, maybe if it was done just under a year or so ago then yeah maybe the road it's leading to wouldn't be so near.

You claim Holdfast is boring because it doesn't contain the things you want, as suggested cav and arty. Yet cavalry is already said to be worked on by the developers and arty units. People still seem to forget that this game is Early Access and not everything is done and put in. If you're really not enjoying the game at it's current state just wait until the full release.

Mount & Blade has hit a dead end, Holdfast has a lot more potential.
Title: Re: Mount and Blade Warband: Napoleonic Wars
Post by: Rivet on December 09, 2017, 04:20:58 pm
I trusted devs. I paid money for the game. I understand that creating new content takes time. But I dont like when devs dont inform about what is happening. Early Access status does not justify from not informing about the progress! Half of the people who i know have already stopped playing in HF because nothing happens.(RIP malee)  I dont want that HF to finish like OKAM. (I also bought it)
