Bannerlord's biggest problem, aside from the frequent crashes and half-baked single-player game, was the fact that more players played Warband multiplayer than Bannerlord multiplayer. With these changes, tat is bound to change.

The newest patch saw the introduction of a new multiplayer customization system that rewards you with Loot simply for playing the game.

Loot can be used to unlock different armors and clothing for your character and troops, allowing you to customize the appearance of each troop for each faction, while still retaining the look and feel of the selected class and culture. 

Additionally, Loot can be used to unlock various Sigils to display on your banner and shield. This update allows you to inject more of your own personality into your multiplayer character and will, in time, allow friends and foes to identify you on the battlefield from your appearance alone.

If you plan to peacock around in your shiny new gear, shouting and cheering, which also came with patch e1.6.3, then you need to be able to prove that you’re worth your salt. The addition of the most valuable player award in e1.6.3 allows you to do just that, by highlighting the standout player from each team every round.

But, just before you jump in and try to climb the leaderboard with the bodies of your victims, you should know that it’s not all about top fragging! Alongside the MVP system came a change to how player scores are calculated, with less emphasis placed on final blows, and more on teamwork and recognizing each player’s contribution.
