Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord

The fanbase has been complaining for quite some time that the game was unfinished, and showing signs of following in the footsteps of "With Fire and Sword", rather than "Warband". Patch notes prove otherwise.

Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord is the canonical successor, or predecessor, to Warband. A game that entered the hearts of many a conqueror and leader of men, hoping to update Calradia, and make it relevant for years to come.

Discussions have sparked among the fanbase regarding the game itself. Pessimistic fans are calling the game unfinished and rushed, disregarding all the work developers have done to make the game a reality. What needs to be pointed out, however, is that even Warband had, and to this day has its issues. Form quest bugging out to the game simply crashing, it was all part and parcel of the playthrough.

What differed Warband from other, less successful titles, such as With Fire and Sword, was the game's setting, and flexible core that gave an opportunity for modding communities to rise.

Patch notes are a testament that the game is moving in the right direction, with more and more issues being fixed, are inconsequential, rather than game-breaking.

The following patch notes' excerpts further prove that point.

Fixed an issue that assigned a hero that was kicked from the clan as a governor if they had previously held this role.

Fixed an issue that caused the tutorial quests to seem active even after completing or skipping the tutorial.

Fixed an issue with the conspiracy quest whereby attacking the caravan would declare war with the neutral faction.

These issues, while irritating to be sure, are to be expected in a game with so many moving parts. Not everything can be accounted for, and the fact that the developers are placing special attention on making the game as moddable as possible goes to show just how much they understand their fanbase, and the lengths they go to please them.
