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.
