Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Will you add faction X ?
A: We're not making any promises concerning upcoming factions, we follow our planning and eventually new factions are done.

Q: Will you add X item ?
A: If it fits our time frame then we will most likely add it as long as it is relevant, if it doesn't then we won't.
Items we won't do:
- Square Scutums
- Segmentata
- Corinthian Helmet
Stop requesting these please.

Q: Faction X is so OP/UP (overpowered/underpowered)!!!
A: That's not a question. Also we tested everything against everything in multiplayer a dozen times already and as far as I'm concerned it's relatively balanced. It seems to work decently in SP too so if all you have is one random empiric occurrence where you got your ass handed to you that won't be convincing of a faulty balance.

Q: Is the mod dead?
A: No.

Other things worth mentioning:
We do our own research so please be so kind to not point towards Rome II as a historical reference, we appreciate actual history books and physical evidence over movies/videogames. We do have a planning for what we are doing (most of the time) so there is no point in suggesting to us what our next move shall be. Thank you for reading the F.A.Q. and twice the thanks for reading the F.A.Q. before posting a question already answered in it.

Server is currently online, check that the folder of the mod is called:
RaW 2.5

After that launch the mod, go to multiplayer, join game and in the server filter options tick the "Compatible with module" option and you should be able to find servers.

Wasn't trying to insult your intelligence, just checking the basics that could possibly had gone wrong.
Is the problem general as in no servers at all be it for the mod and the main game? This happens from time to time, the server issues get fixed after some time though, searching for "Warband can't find any servers" might lead to more information. I doubt I can fix your issue without knowing more about the problem.

Yes, cant see any servers both in warband and mod, hope it will fix itself because I already tried "Google solutions", thank you again for your operative and most polite replies.

If you want to make a comparison, the period when segmentata was more used (I-II Century AD) it was narrowly the most used armour in the Roman Empire. The lastes research shows that segmentata were 50% of total, while hamata (chain mail) was 30% and other types (like leather or squamata) made up the remaining 10%

Yeah it's pretty sad that this isn't set in the time that movies and video games portray so accurately and Romans look cool and stuff bringing civilization to unwashed barbarians that should've known better than disturb the eagle. A time in which they used about four armor types although there is just one that really matters because it looks cool which is the segmentata (plate armor).
Gee I'd really trade for the Empire blob that spends its time trying to keep its borders in shape in petty skirmishes with its bland and uniformized army rather than a struggling early Republic trying to forge an identity among other major civilizations.
Damn name is misleading, Rome at War not being just about Rome being cool...

They were pretty much always at war regardless of period. Ryse ought to be one of the worst offenders to history, dwelling deep in stereotypes with a terrible plot and props that reflect nothing of the reality of that period. All they ever tried was to look good and feel cinematic to attract to a broader audience and there is nothing historical about it, I mean, freaking Boudicca riding an elephant into Rome...
So no, not everyone likes that period due to how badly represented it is and there ought to be mods to represent other periods accurately to show the evolution of nations throughout time without having themselves bothering to embellish everything to be sure they attract a big audience. Mods like Roma Surrectum, Europa Barbarorum, Somnivm Apostatae Ivliani and more for Rome Total War did more for me with their immense content to read and thoroughly researched material than any shallow big company game that cares only about looks.
There's a bunch of Rome mods for Warband and I'm sure you'd feel more like playing Bellum Imperii than this mod as it has all you are searching for, cool Romans and gameplay over history.
