Thanks for watching the Battle of Bucharest 2017 last weekend! We are pleased with how successful the tournament was and really happy to see so many positive comments.

The event was organized by the Lithuanian Esport Federation and hosted at the PGL Studios in Bucharest. They did a fantastic job with everything, which allowed us to stay focused on Bannerlord. ⚔️

We'd like to extend our thanks to them, and everyone else involved in making it so memorable!



Battle of Bucharest, the first live Mount & Blade esports event, is already over – but the echoes of its battle cries can still be heard around the world! 20 players from 10 countries competed for $10,000 in prize money as well as for the Audience Choice Award. 120,000 unique viewers watched the live stream on May 20, 2017 through Facebook LIVE, YouTube LIVE and Twitch, with the overall daily reach exceeding 1,200,000 people – the tournament was covered by international media in 14 different languages.

Team Castellans emerged victorious in the TEAM category after a thrilling and surprising final against Apis Europae Yellow, who had previously knocked out French side, Unity, in a semi-final upset. Third place was won by Apis Europae Black, a sister-team of the runners-up. In the DUEL category, Pierre Lecler – acclaimed as one of the best individual M&B players in the world – beat Jordan Gibson 7-6 in a nerve-racking final. Mark Glasspole won the playoff for third place -- and also the Audience Choice Award, presented by GOG.com (based on 2,000 votes from the audience).

"We are pleased with the success of the first live Mount & Blade tournament and its reception among the community and press", stated Ali Erkin, managing director at TaleWorlds. "In particular, we are grateful to the Lithuanian Esport Federation for organizing everything while the TaleWorlds team remains focused on Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord".

Four teams of five warriors and eight individual duelists made it through the qualifiers and are ready to fight for the honor of being the winners of the Battle of Bucharest, the first Mount & Blade live esports event. During 3 days, 128 duels and 26 team matches (total of 208 rounds) were fought in the qualifying rounds. That’s an approximate total of 125 hours of combat, more than 5 days – as a comparison, that’s like 15 Battles of Hastings or 5 Battles of Grunwald fought one after another! Today Battle of Bucharest releases the schedule for its final round, to be celebrated in Bucharest on May 20.

Mount & Blade - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Brendan Caldwell)

Every week we launch Brendan from a catapult into the early access fortress. This time, the haphazard RPG adventuring of Veil of Crows [official site]>

I ve just murdered four villagers. I was grumpy and I wanted their village, so I went in with eleven peasants and killed them and took their lumberyard. To be fair, they murdered four of us right back. Sadly, all the bodies now lying on the village grounds are practically indistinguishable – all the same greyish peasant corpse. I own a village now, but I am still grumpy. Is it because the kingdom who once guarded the lumberyard are now sending an army to take back their rightful land? No. It s just because Veil of Crows is messy, buggy and not very fun. … [visit site to read more]

Hello all!

Mount & Blade: Warband version 1.172 is out now! This update brings the higher resolution textures, we used in the console release, over to Windows, macOS and Linux.

The majority of textures aren't affected, but you should notice some improvements in the fidelity and aspect ratio of the UI, and a selection of in-game items!

If, for any reason, you are experiencing issues with the patch, you can try lowering your “Texture Detail” setting in the game's launcher, or simply navigate to your Mount & Blade: Warband installation folder ("browse local files" on Steam) and delete or rename the folder "TexturesHD".

Hello all!

We're pushing out an update to fix some of the issues you've been encountering in Invasion.

However, do note that most of these are server-side and so you'll need to wait until the server hosts update their files until you get the full benefit!

Our (almost day 1) patch notes:

-Shields now recover HP along with players at the end of each wave
-Reduced "it's almost harvesting season" sound frequency
-Fix for knockdown mace hitting mounted enemies and causing visual error
-Enemies captured with team change dart no longer visible in drop assignment UI
-Fixed potential crash causing issue on servers in Invasion mode
-All dropped items are now useable by all troops
-Invulnerable helmet is now more protective (but still not actually invulnerable)
-Disarming throwing axe can no longer by turned into an instakill knife
-Additional fixes
Community Announcements - Captain Lust [TaleWorlds]


New Multiplayer Mode: "INVASION"

  • Co-op mode that lets you fight waves of AI opponents with your friends!
  • Notable characters from single player feature and fight alongside as both friends and foes
  • Choose your companions and assign them classes to survive the waves of enemies
  • Enemies drop random items with special features, including armour that restores your health and a bow that fires javelins!
  • Defeat multiple waves and work your way past enemy lords to kill the king at multiple difficulty levels!

After a few days in beta, our previously announced brand-new free game mode for Warband, "Invasion" is out! Once your game updates, you can dive right into the action and try it out for yourself. This is a first release, so while it should run smoothly, there's a chance you'll encounter one or two issues - we'll keep an eye on things and release patches if and when necessary!

Enjoy the new mode, and be sure to let us know what you think. This mode was developed as a partial, small thanks for all the hours invested and great feedback we've had on Warband over the years.
