    Seems to be a large amount of hype built up with all the people who were waiting finally able to get it and stressing out the servers.

    I've not really played the Mount and Blade games, is this new release actually fun? My circle tends to enjoy playing some of the popular games, some like one type more than others, but we've played stuff like Apex Legends, League, Modern Warfare, Rocket League, etc. I think I am open to more genres, so I will likely get the game. Anyone know if anything major will change between this Early Access and the final release of the game?

      Throughout the course of the early access period we intend to introduce the missing supporting features, such as, rebellions, kingdom creation and weapon crafting, while expanding and enhancing many of the existing features that are outlined below.

    I have 100 hours in the original and 200 hours in Warband. The basic idea of this game is so good, and I'm a little confused/sad why no larger studios took the same basic idea and applied it to outer space or something.

    I doubt I'll play Bannerlord nearly as much as it's pretty unusual for me to drop much time in open-ended single-player games anymore, but I preordered as a retroactive payment for the last two games, which I think I got both on sale for maybe $5 each?
