The Last Days / Re: Is Warband much superior? Also: wargs.

Thanks! I wasn't sure if it might have more features than the vanilla version, or if the WB version might have been supported later (and therefore be more stable). I might try it out but I still have my old save game waiting on vanilla anyway...

The Last Days / Is Warband much superior? Also: wargs.
« on: February 17, 2015, 02:37:40 AM »
My gaming computer just puttered out so I'm on my laptop and thought I'd either continue my old campaign of TLD on vanilla M&B or try out the warband version. I really haven't played much Warband so I don't know much about it- is it much better than the regular? Worth the d\l and new campaign?

Second... I see some mention of a 'bug' killing off the wargs after their rider is killed. I remember warg-cleanup being particularly tedious. Is there a particular build to find in order to get a version with this 'bug'?

If anyone's still around that is!

I would love to see something that addresses the warg problem in the latest release(es). The OP on this thread summed up a lot of the problems:  http://mbx.streetofeyes.com/index.php?topic=2823.0

But I'd add that they completely screw up the AI Lord behavior, or so it seems. A large cavalry wedge will just kinda stop and get chopped up by infantry for no reason except perhaps there's a warg in there. You can do a lot if you're in control, but large battles often have people with a little more status leading their troops. More importantly, someone appears to have broke things further in the last release because the wargs effectively have 9 lives. The 'ghost riders' are getting killed by the AI somehow and every time it happens, a 'new' warg is spawned.

The riderless warg is a cool idea with an innovative implementation that just doesn't work in the M&B environment. It's not "OP," it's just not working. Since it looks like it won't be addressed by dev, I wonder if anyone knows a way around the problems. Ideally at this point I'd like to just horsify them and do away with the ghost riders altogether (that's how annoying it has become) but maybe really nerfing the ghost wargs might be an improvement...
