    Started as deserters making our way to the south for riches and glory.

    The desert nomads seem a lot more dangerous than thugs early game due to their better morale.

    It's never worth it lmao.

    Who cares about slight increase in sell price to your 50% chance for an extra garbage loot. You are getting a 10% raw penalty on every trade interaction, it ruins any profitability whatsoever.

    Like it's literally by far the worst origin. It has no benefit, just raw malus as the supposed "benefit" is financial for the most part and is overshadowed by the malus.

    It doesn't even have any flavour beyond giving you 3 garbage background bros.

    Think I got a map with roads not connecting throughout all settlements. Can't say for sure since I'm playing with fog of war turned on, but if it is as I suspect it's disappointing that this "bug" is still in the game.

    I can confirm, beast slayer origin is still garbage.

    I'm really liking the new environments and weather effects though. Also, southern contracts are basically impossible starting out.

    So fresh impressions.
    >map feel smaller, problem with edges of the map still not fixed
    >southern equipment looks really nice, the base game ones look very basic compared to it
    >manhunters origin is interesting(interesting mechanic, wonder if can be implemented into Northern Raider background with taking normal recruits from barbarians and raiders after battles and maybe thrall from caravans) but the indebted are garbage mostly because of low HP, getting few real background should be priority, company is cheap to run if you do not take many losses(equipment and indebted cost)
    >low level battles are pretty bloody as in south bleed damage is everywhere behind every blade of grass
    >most mods don't work and most my saves are gone(they are old and I forget what mods I was using(some mod manager and better saves with more info would be helpful)
    >unexplored map option is nice touch
    >did I mention that map feel really small right now?
    >map generation kind of suck sometimes(old problem but maybe getting worse with extra three cities)
    >vanilla factions feel kind of bland now
    >Recovery should be free perk or there should be more options to recover fatigue(where is my drummer dammit?)
    To be honest.
    It kind of feel like South could be their own expansion and I definitely lack reversed map(with three big sand factions and some free crusader cities) or more map generation options.
    >beast trophies increased in worth but still pay only normal % of its worth, dunno if something wrong or work as intended

    Losses in Battle Brothers were costly in general (at least early on, when you don't have too many crowns to spare), but I thought you were supposed to enslave your beaten opponents, not buy slaves on the market? Or do indebted have wages or something?

    YES (to both)

    either have recovery there from the start or auto-unlocked at like level 4 - perk to upgrade the basic recovery, if anything at all

    Into my first run, bland southern mercs. Was mostly hunting Hyenas and doing low pay UPS and caravan jobs between two close City States. Mopped the floor with the first Nomads I encountered. Bought trade goods and wanted to make my way to the north, through the deserts and lots of unexplored area. No chance. Needed to run away from Orcs and Brigands. The latter followed me, but Nomads came to my help, took care of them - so then I mopped the floor with the second Nomads I encountered.

    Good times.

    gladiator start difficulty is what should of been lone wolf. The gold cost keeps you from getting new gear and brothers which is more then half the difficulty of the game. Doesn't help either the southern city states are far apart and more dangerous then north so more risky making money initially.

    This fixed it for me(atleast for the ones I use here that are dependable on the hook script which is the faster overworld/combat movement and automatic pause when enemy shows up): https://www.nexusmods.com/battlebrothers/mods/222?tab=description

    BTW I can't agree with the opinions that south is harder overall. I have played only gladiators so far(still on early to mid game) so maybe other starts are tougher, but it's most likely the easiest start I've got till now. I've even fucked up one of the starting bros build but I'm still managing to wreck shit up just fine. Hyenas are weaker versions of direwolves, Serpents are free farm, Nomads cuttthroats are slightly stronger than bandid thugs but they're still thugs, slingers are weaker than bandit poachers, outlaws are squishier than raiders, Ifrits I found to be easy aswell(was really hoping for a atleast an equal challenge compared to Unholds or Schrats but it's not even close)and they drop 500 gold trophies, you've got arena for easy gold. Toughest fight I've got so far was indebted uprising that I got I think on second contract I've done, just because of the sheer number of enemies, but all you gotta do is hire one or two cannon fodders and you're good to go.

    That said, I've seen some streams on twitch before release and I think I've got lucky with the arena fights, since one streamer got a blade dancer(I think this is his name) on 3rd or 4th fight who raped his gladiators. That's probably the only enemy I've seen that looks stronger than northern counterparts - it looks like a stronger swordmaster.

    Even caravan guards are stronger on south than north. Once when doing caravan escort I got jumped by outlaws and the guards got surrounded. I thought "they're fucked". Then they fucking shot the outlaws in the face with a rocket spear and fucking murdered everyone. Besides, even their armor is better than caravan guards I think.
