NW has a 1% chance getting updated, I replied on the latest NW update thread like 4 weeks ago and my post got removed.

The only reason they would update is if BCoF Flopped majorly and they would update it and like announce that they would be moving to bannerlord as well. That's my guess

In order for a game to flop, it has to be released.

It's already released, just in alpha to people who pay 150 euros. So like 10-20 people.

There is a post somewhere on here from I forget who but someone on the FSE team who said that if Taleworlds would have given them the source codes etc. for MB we would have had double the content we had now including actual working ships. Not school buses.

FSE should have made the sailors+Bavarians a "sprite pack" dlc just like EU4 has. 5 bucks for sailors+bavarians+British hussars and the other ones they added.

So many more things they could have also added, like music packs for musicians, special equipment for classes. Like Spontoon spears for British sergeants, Re add Guard Skirms to france, along with Sergeant, bugler and cpt, they could add a like Sergeant sapper class just like in MM, where you had 1 barricade you could throw down.

NW could have been so much more.

It will never happen

They are fully focused on Battle Cry of Freedom.

A shame, there was so much potential with NW. There was only 1 content update really.

Yes, but then again, as Price stated above, FSE could have done a lot more had Taleworlds given FSE the source code for M&B.

I would love to see an update myself, but I know it isn't happening as FSE is focusing all it's resources on their new game, Battle Cry of Freedom.

I agree, there's still a lot of potential for expanding the current DLC in pretty much every term. Units, Maps, Equipment etc.

If only they would allow some other people to carry on with the development of NW. Like a small team under FSE that would focus on NW.
Can't see the harm in that, but yeah. Stuff and such.

Doubt they will ever make another attempt to do something remotely useful for NW's community at this point. Since the last update, they act like this DLC is dead. In my opinion that is. We'll just have to see what BCoF turns in.

I think Goki should give us a new update for NW, given how he's our amazing CR.
:3
Okay but seriously, this was a cool idea a couple years ago but I don't see it working out at this point in time into the mod's life, really no reason to do it.

Sure, possibly the amount of people playing this was a couple of years ago much higher. But I don't see how it's that bad atm? Perhaps you haven't noticed, but on a evening there are still hundreds of people playing it. Perhaps not all on public servers, but they do play it.

Refreshment will always bring back some certain amount of interest to players who got previously bored of the game.

Until Bannerlord get's released obviously, then it's game over for the majority of the DLC. But no one has a clear idea when that might happen.

My comment was with the backdrop of Bannerlord, forgot to mention that.

I mean theres nothing stopping someone from making a mod onto NW. North and south is pretty much that.

Just call it like "NW+" or "NW Plus", add in units, factions, updated textures/units, maybe a new cannon or weapon. I'm sure if there was a mod onto NW that make it way better then the base game, but the gameplay still felt good all the servers would switch over to it
Title: Re: Anyone want an update?
Post by: Thunderstormer on June 04, 2016, 08:59:03 am
I doubt it honestly.  For events/tourneys you could probably get a lot of people to switch over, but for regular play? No.  Your average casual player will just hop on NW and play.  They wont know about the new "mod", know how to get it and may even not be interested in playing it.  Sure you can advertise for it and do a big marketing campaign for it but that wont reach everyone.(and maybe not even a majority of the active pub player base.  this isn't even counting steam sales where people will just get the game and log on)  Combine the 2 points above and all you do is split the community.  The casual side of the community is small enough as is.  If it gets any smaller, people will have a harder time finding a active server to play on and enjoy.

 It may just end up killing the game faster.  Sure, you will still have events but as the game goes on, regiments wont have as many new recruits replacing inactive members which in turn will cause them to slowly disappear.  and this will lead to other issuse. 

or perhaps i am wrong and dont have enough faith in people being able to mass shift to a "new and improved" nw to avoid most of the issues.  This would still have issues around steam sale time.

Agreed with Thunderstormer. A new mod wouldn't do the trick.

FSE is a small company working flat out on BCoF, nobody can really complain that they're not releasing any new content for NW. Seems like they bit off more than they could chew with BCoF they don't want anything more to add to the workload. There's a reason we didn't get an update for over a year. It doesn't make any commercial sense even if they had the resources given how small the player base is. Plus it's kinda depressing seeing people on here advocating for FSE to take up shitty DLC practices like a lot of the big players do (*Cough* Paradox *Cough*). Who the hell wants to pay for a music pack DLC or for a sailor class? Seriously?

I would gladly pay for a sailor class if it meant that they also release free content with it ( like paradox does with their patches) Also if a lot of people buy the sailor pack for example it gives them incentive to release more stuff! and not just let the game die.

Sometimes I just wish NW was never released and they just made MMRussia4 or MMAustria as if this game was just a mod then it would probably have been updated more since they wouldn't have to deal with taleworlds every update.

If they were like Paradox, they would sell sailors for $5-$7, take away your muskets in return for a Arquebus and add in the new dlc a sniper rifle that may or may not be as good as the musket and has a 50% chance to misfire while having a longer reload.  Not to mention all the bugs that would come with the patch that may never get fixed.  I would rather they not go down that road.  i am not the biggest fan of dlc for dlc either.

Yes they release music and skins dlcs. As games like csgo sell skins for guns.

I do recall lag being bad tho despite servers having less than 40 people and small maps, so ye

50 ping is more annoying for someone used to 20 than someone who's always played with it aswell, lel

Good old times

Indeed, all i remember was holding tab and seeing your whole team spike from 20 to 80 and occasionally 120. Must have been something weird going on that day for that region
