@ xanderman - why do you care if people want a bit of light hearted fun. not everybody just wants to mele and kill. does it make you mad when you see people not fighting? or are you one of these groupfighting admins who perm ban anybody on sight that does not have a regiment tag because it means they are automatically a troll right?
you take this game so seriously. its the whole point that this game is very much a role play kind of game and not a bang bang shoot em up, that has made the mount blade series so popular in the first place.
Mmm, I think the Mount and Blade game has been so popular because of the awesome melee system, and while I can't speak for anyone else, I do get annoyed when I see people surrendering and not being killed if they're last man standing (if they aren't the last on their team, I don't really care as long as they get killed in the end) because the point of the game is
the fighting. It is very much a hack and slash game, just with more depth and less polish than the average one, which is what makes it so endearing, and people delaying (that is what they're doing, delaying) prevents people that are dead from getting back into the action.
***I am of course referring only to Battle mode, in other modes where you have more than one life in a round, I really don't care how you play.***
The surrendering animation is the same as musicians in NW, completely pointless and encourages people not to fight and annoy others therefore you can take your surrender animation and shove it up your... +1
