I was playing the napoleon DLC, joined this semi RP server ( don't kill surrenders, follow your officer, etc) Me and my company were defending a town, after a long battle we were the only ones left. The entire French army was coming towards us. It was a massacre, we were getting mowed down, we pulled back to the church with the last 5 guys.
Each of us got picked off, one by one, without mercy. I was the only one left against 47 French soldiers. I knew i had 10 maybe 15 seconds left before they would storm the church. Suddenly I saw a piano to my left, I dropped my weapons and went towards it. I sat down and started to play Ave Maria, It was beautifull, I hear a cracking sound, they broke down the wooden door. I prepare to get shot, but nothing happend, Their officer came to me. "well this is it, I guess" I typed in chat. "I'm sorry buddy" said the officer. I stood up and went on my knees. He took out his sword and with one slice he hacked in on me, twice.

Glorius.

Oh yeah the vanilla is pretty ♥♥♥♥ing good too.


100/10 would Ave Maria again

Day 1: Why is this game in my library? Meh, who cares, might as well play it. Uuuh, I can be a girl, let's do it! Look at dem tities. Look at my pixelated ♥♥♥, all day, all night.
Day 2: Ok, let's get this ♥♥♥♥ done, train some soldiers, kill some bandits...
Day 3: I might have made a mistake when I chose to be a girl... I destroyed so many bandits but I still have to prove myself?
Day 4: FINNALY A F**KING LORD. Now I can destroy the enemies of my king!!!
Day 5: Why no one wants to marry me... I'm pretty... right Rolf? *ROLF*
Day 6: I ALONE CONQUERED 4 CASTLES AND ONE MAJOR CITY AND I DON'T EVEN GET A F**KING VILLAGE??? F**K THIS KING, I'M STARGING MY OWN KINGDOM, WITH HOOKERS AND ROLF!!!
Day 7: I have a little kingdom, I destroy every fu cking aaarmy. Let's recruit some lords for my kingdom! "Hey, little lord, I promise to give you estates if you join me." *NO* ok... *sound of killing his army and destroying his castle intensifies*
Day 8: Why every kingdom declared war on me? Why is this HUGE army at my cities gate?
Day 9: Ok, now I have nothing, so let's get this ♥♥♥♥ done again, build an army, kill some bandits...

Epic Game, sadly not know by that many people.
Singleplayer module is awesome. You can easily spend hundreds of hours on the SP, since every game you play will be different. You can choose whatever kind of class you want to become and conquer Calradia.
Specialy thanks to a lot of modules, its even more fun to play the SP.

Also the Multiplayer mode is awesome. Native (vanila) is specialy very good for newbies. For more challenge, there have been made plenty of modules like Persistent World and Mercenaries.

With over 2,000 hours played. This game has brought me more friends then Ive ever made in real life. Thats kinda sad, but its the truth. From NW DLC to PW To single player mods.... This game has been "The Game" For me. Joining regs and getting on TS to admining PW servers to spending hours on Viking conquest. Tbh Mount And Blade has kinda saved gaming for me in a way. If it wasent for the joy of playing this game and meeting awesome people online I would have most likely given up gaming along time ago. There's a long list of people that Ive met playing Mount And Blade. And the overwheling majority are on my good side. Anyways, thought Id wright a review after 2k hours.

we instantly stopped the sieging to go to this feast

10/10 you can never have enough butter

Serious review:

After I bought this game in a sale, I played it for about half an hour. I only played the tutorial and the game did not really appeal to me, so I pretty much instantly refunded it.

Recently, I gave it another shot. In two days, I had played 10+ hours. This game is absolutely amazing, and I recommend everyone to try it. If you don't like it at first, just play for a bit longer and maybe, like me, you'll get into it.

Overall I give it a 9.5/10.

Mount and Blade: Warband and all of the its expansions and mods has brought me some of the most enjoying moments I have ever had in a videogame. From the brutal medieval battles of class Warband to the 19th century warfare that is Napoleonic Wars, the game never failed to keep me coming back to the battlegrounds for more. This is mostly due to its easy to learn, but hard to master combat system, and its various game modes, factions, classes, and maps. There are six different factions: Swadia, Nords, Sarranid Sultanate, Khergit Khanate, Rhodoks, and Vaegirs. Each faction specializes in their own respective areas. Swadia have very strong heavy cavalry, Nords specialize in having the strongest infantry with the best shields and massive two handed axes that cut through enemy shields and armor like butter. The Sarranid Sultanate is a nice blend of both cavalry and light archers, the Khergit Khanate are the only faction to be affective with horse archers which can be a nightmare to fight if they aren’t approached properly. Rhodoks are renowned for their sharp spearmen and crossbows and the Vaegirs are master archers with pinpoint accuracy even at the greatest distances. The three different classes offer many tactical options and deciding what you yourself want to specialize in along with the rest of your party can be quite thought provoking at times.
Single player is a pure joy to play through and being that it is an open world RPG sandbox that you can play around in, you will find that there is a ton of replay value here. Whether it’s the level up system that can be quite overwhelming at first, the pros and cons of the different factions, or the people you meet along the way and the relationships that you form with them, you will always find a reason to hit that “Start a new game” button and play again, but in a completely different way.
Multiplayer is also quite in depth and a very dedicated community has formed around it. You will be able to find both casual and competitive players who still play regularly. Multiplayer consists of eight different game modes: Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Battle, Capture the Flag, Fight and Destroy, Conquest, Siege, and Duel.
-Deathmatch has you thrown into immediate chaotic action against other players in an all out brawl where it’s every man and woman for themselves. Actions happen very quickly, damage is high and health is quite low so at any moment anyone could die regardless of how skilled they are. It is a great game mode if you don’t have a lot of time to play, but just want to get in some quick instant action against players of varying skill levels.
-Team Deathmatch is very similar to Deathmatch in that you are thrown right into the thick of the action with no objective, but to kill the enemy at all costs. The difference here is that you have a team to work with and so does the enemy. Coordination is key here unless you are lucky enough to have a few players on your team that are experienced and can cleave through the enemy players.
-Battle is similar to Team Deathmatch except for the fact that in battle you only get one life per round which adds great tension to each round individually. At first having one life per round can be quite frustrating especially when you’re one of the first people to die before any of the main fighting begins, but overtime you will more than likely grow to like this one life based game mode as it makes you play more carefully and tactfully than you would in Deathmatch or Team Deathmatch.
-Capture the Flag is quite standard, it’s the same as any other Capture the Flag really. You and the enemy team each have your own flags and your goal is to retrieve their flag and bring it back to your base without letting them get yours. Short, sweet and to the point.
-Fight and Destroy has two teams put against each other, one faction will be tasked with defending valuable objectives while the other team attacks those objectives in an attempt to destroy them.
-Conquest is a real test of a team’s ability to work as a unit. In this game mode each team has to capture and hold key points on the map for a set amount of time while they fight it out with a limited number of lives.
-Siege is the ultimate test of a team’s tactical capabilities on the battlefield. This is easily the most difficult game mode when there are 60+ players on a siege server. One team plays as the defenders who attempt to hold a keep of massive proportions, while the other team plays as the attackers who raid the castle to try and capture it within a set period of time. It is easily the most brutal, bloody, nonsensical and downright gritty game mode that Mount and Blade Warband has to offer. Players of all skill levels participate in sieges and even if one team has veterans it will not guarantee them victory, because there is greater strength in numbers and coordination than one elite player going solo and killing as many people as he can. This game mode comes down to pure team work and pushing enemy fortifications in the right way as the attackers and defending those fortifications as the defenders. Often times classes play a major role in this game mode as every class has its own role to fulfill. For defense inept archers can generally mean instant spelled defeat if their infantry are not solid and. For offense having poor infantry who don’t do coordinated pushes as a group will also end up losing more than half the time. As attackers Siege has the many factors and rules that come into play with how you need to approach the enemy fortress to win and if you don’t follow said parameters then you’re going to die. . . A lot. Overall though it is still my 2nd favorite game mode and I have spent a great deal of time playing it with friends and flying solo from time to time.
-Duel is in my opinion the most personal and most in depth game mode that Mount and Blade Warband has to offer and I quite frankly find it to be the best. In duel you fight another player in a one on one fight with any weapon of your choice and any class of your choice, but typically it’s infantry with a one-handed weapon, two-handed weapon or a polearm with no shield. Whether you are dueling for honor, fun, or just to win, duel has something to offer for every player in the game. It is also the best game mode for learning about how melee combat works. At the time of this review the majority of my playtime in the game has been on duel and it still has yet to disappoint me to the point where I don’t want to play it. At a high level of play duel is the most fast paced and reaction based part of the game. The margin for error is minimal and one mistake often leads to death especially when using the two-handed Great Sword, which is the preferred weapon of choice in duel. Dueling is a progression through the game’s melee combat. You will first run around like an idiot as you try to figure out how somebody who is experienced at the game keeps killing you in a few seconds without you getting a chance to even swing, but overtime you will begin to understand exactly how the game’s mechanics work. First you will learn to recognize visual cues from your opponent and then you will learn to block. Once through that stage you will learn to feint and how to attack properly without leaving yourself completely open. Then you will learn about footwork, different feinting methods, chambering and several other aspects of the game’s melee combat and if you’re lucky you will find a mentor to help you learn it all.
At its core the game is brutal and unforgiving at the worst of times and at the best of times it can be the most rewarding game on the planet.

So few combat sims that feel really real. I like the clans, the combat, the graphics, the mods!
This game has so much value for the price you would be crazy not to buy it.
I just ride around on my horse and shoot people with my bow :)

They took a simple idea, made it complex and then made it awesome. It's got all the action you'll ever need while keeping the strategic planning involved in every nook and cranny of the game. It has made me a better man and for that nothing less that 10/10 would suffice.

Been playing since 0.751 of the original game and it's still one of my favourites that I play regularly.
