Skirmishing's the key in Arena brawls; move in, get some hits in, move out. And watch out for fucking archers.

Archers can kill the polearm and two handed weapon users pretty quickly since they can't block arrows.
burn and loot village kill 60 peasants mount and blade
Almost took Swadia's capital with my 55 troops against their three hundred, them some dick with a crossbow shot me out of nowhere and somehow that made all my troops die.

[QUOTE=JesterUK;27199721]Whenever I try to get into Mount and Blade I just find it really boring. I spent most of my time running back and forth between people asking them to return money they owed.[/QUOTE] Grind a bit more. Or, if you want to get rid of the whole "grind, do quests for crap rewards, etc" then get Blood&Steel.
I go around solo killing gangs of looters with a hunting crossbow from horseback. In other cases I use a military scythe and fuck shit up. I need to know a good way to make money though.
I'm Lu_Bu_zerg in multiplayer I play on USA_Central_POM. Say hey if you see me.
Is there really anything to do other than joining up with a faction and helping them with their war? 33 hours of vanilla and it seems like I've done everything.

Make a nation, get the lords that like you join it, then along with a bigger army and more leaders to help you in battles, you also get the cities/castles/villages they own

Thought Lady Sonadel was the only reasonably good looking lady in the game, then Lady Tuan comes along and is wearing clothes that imply she's stacked.
A local count told me to hunt down a bandit. When I found him the bandit said he would only go down fighting in a duel to the death. So when he pulled out his sword I shot him in the neck with a light crossbow and killed him instantly.

[QUOTE=MrJazzy;27303988]Join a faction and loot villages.[/QUOTE] I found another way now. I go around looking for groups of mountain bandits or looters. Then I ride up to them and shoot at them with a crossbow and ride away and reload. I repeat until out of bolts at which point I ride down the rest with a awlpike and then loot the bodies and sell their stuff.
Whats the best Mount and Blade game? The original, or Warband? And out of these two, which is the most played over multiplayer?
Warband. Also, the original M&B doesn't even have multiplayer.
[QUOTE=Generic.Monk;27309272]Warband. Also, the original M&B doesn't even have multiplayer.[/QUOTE] Okay, thanks.

He also knocked someone out by repeatedly knocking them out with a level 1 horse. He also only had a crossbow.

I own a poor village now, I started building a mill there to make more money or something. What should I do with my village?
