    Polearms can't attack something two height levels higher or lower than your Bro.
    Still possible though.

    Isn't that pretty historically accurate for pre- Gustav II Adolph firearms?

    edit.
    Expansion seems to be well received.

    no. but to be honest never had an retreating enemy.. only once, one barbarian escaped. no freezers

    other thing. What perks do you people use apart from Colossus, quick hands and rotation in early and middle game?

    That's not an error, that's just how it works.

    When you get those consumables, they are put into your "stock" (the numbers on the top) and no longer take up inventory space. The only time you see them is while in town and after a fight, as once you enter the world map they get moved from your stash to your "consumable fill" (for lack of a better term).

    He's saying that the numbers dont change. The explanation for that is you're probably at your maximum carrying capacity for whatever it is; if you want to carry more tools or whatever you need to hire the appropriate retinue guy.

    Kind of weird, because I don't see the consumables in the town screen either. That's what puzzled me initially - when I attempted to sell some excess for the cash I needed, I discovered I couldn't because the only time I'd see the consumables was right after buying them. I've noticed they tend to disappear again right after the next battle, although like I've said, the numbers don't act as if the goods disappeared.

    Gladiators start is a lot of fun. You start out with three badasses with great equipment but need to start making money fast to keep up with their opulent wages.

    It's when you first get them in your inventory upon buying; once you leave that screen they should go to your top counters. Are you saying yours never go to the top counters?

    IE if you're at 100 tools and you buy a set of 20, does it not change to 120 when you're back on the world map? (assuming you're not maxed out).

    Here's what happens, I'll try to be detailed this time around, sorry.
    1. I buy the consumables.
    2. I can see them in my inventory after leaving both the town and/or merchant screens.
    3. The counters in top left are updated accordingly.
    4. I enter a battle - finish it - and I can't see the consumables in the inventory from that point on, although the counter values remain and are updated accordingly if I go and buy some more consumables.

    If it's a design choice, it's certainly a pretty weird one to be honest. Why would there be an inventory depiction of the items I can work with after buying them, but not after I'm done with the battle.

    It's done that way so you can't go over your total limit (there is max carry capacity for projectiles, medicine and tools). Also, the reason you can "work with them" when buying and looting is precisely so you can take them and replenish your stockpile.

    FUCK THIS GAME

    Also, in the future I am always bringing fire bombs and will just light the little bastards up.

    I also hate ghosts and necromancers.

    So if I only have the base game and have played around 200 hours, which dlcs would you recommend buying for starting a new playthrough? Any good mods as well?

    Webknechts used to be basically the easiest thing around, but yeah, I have to be careful about them now.

    The Samnites are doing alright, but really hurting for cashflow on a rugged map. Every contract earns barely enough to pay wages so you're always working overtime to catch up in episode of Capitalism 101

    I started a new run and this time I built the viper guy right(had fucked up his build on my last run), probably the way overhype "suggested" him to be built(nimble duelist dagger guy) and it's a lot of fun. I gave the scimitar guy a mace, put mace mastery on him + duelist + crippling strikes(not even sure if the later is needed tbh since mace already injuries most of the time without it with duelist on due to high armor penetration) and the strategy I'm adopting is stunning the folks with the mace guy and finishing them off with viper using deathblow while the tank guy, well, tanks(built him around classic taunt tank). I'm managing to get the enemies both stunned and injuried with the stun attack(usually broken nose), so the damage output with deathblow + double grip + duelist + executioner + killing frenzy is fucking insane, and he can pull like 4-5 attacks per turn with berserk because of the +1 AP upon kill trait. He's probably not gonna be that useful on a lot of late game stuff, but on early and mid game down on south it's being a lot of fun.

    I just gave him the named event dagger and he is my puncture bot now. Still can do pretty ok against some enemies but does kinda get overshadowed in some ways. I gave the Lion guy the named barbarian cleaver and he is an absolute beast with it.

    How come you get all the cool events and I get none.

    You got the retired gladiator event, I got the event where my gladiators complain about no meat on food stock.

    This fucking game is trolling me.

    BTW if you hire the alchemist guy you can make a 650 gold snake oil on taxidermist if you have enough serpent scales and ghoul teeth. You can make some good cash early on if you manage to kill enough of those I guess(although you need to spend 2.5k to hire him, so not sure if worth it on early game).

    I think I have reached my fill of Battle Brothers. While the DLC seems fine, the game overall is starting to feel like a long grind. Doing missions after missions until you hit that "a mission too far" and you have to restart. Also, for some reason now, the whole thing with being a roaming mercenary band is getting to me - it has started to feel aimless. I wish they would have come out with an DLC that actually gave you a base of operations, something to invest in. Right now all investment you do go into the characters, but those characters can be gone in a blink of an eye. Another issue I'm having is that the maps seems off to me now for some reason. There are huge swaths of land, either to the east or west that are just wasteland. And while the world seems larger, which is nice I guess, it does feel both cramped and barren simultaneously somehow.

    Either I'm just done with the game, or the DLC didn't change up things enough. Who knows? Oh well, maybe another long break will make the game seem interesting again.

    Is it just me or has starting out become somehow slow now? I tried various middling starts (Davkul, Merchants, Poachers) and I always feels like it takes ages to upgrade your stuff.
