One of the big improvements in the upcoming patch is the addition of dedicated polearm units. Each faction will have billmen, halbardiers, voulgiers, etc. in addition to axemen and other new unit types.

It's depressing how Season 8 killed off Game of Thrones hype with these stupid plot points. GOT mods were always top 5 on ModDB. Some popularity drop was to be expected with the show ending but the writers managed to kill off interest painfully slow, like your face being stuck in someones bicycle spokes as they ride down a hill.

Looking great as always, loving the addition of more unit variations. Shame about the Glovers in the show, would have loved to see more of Robett Glover but unfortunately most of the minor houses ceased to exist in the last few seasons.

{One of Many Things That Makes This Mod... Art.}

That is one of the beautiful things about this mod, you can make the battles how it should be. The North has more variation as far as Houses go, thus the clothing is different for specific Houses, so in a way you could say it reflects the classic Medieval times which had various colors, but instead of colors, you have iconic clothing. Example being the Umbers with their thick leathers, linked chains across the front and heavy cloaks while the Glovers have more of this metal/steel armor.

As for the Stormlands, it appears there wasn't really specific clothing for specific Houses. Think of it as the modern day armies of America where you might be from other places, but you need to wear certain clothing. The beauty of this update though, you will get variation with Houses Renly, Stannis and Robert Baratheon. The difference is that Renly's men will have green shields with a golden stag, Stannis's men will have black shields with a burning stag while Robert's men will have a yellow shield with a black stag. If you look closely during the Battle of the Blackwater and even during the March on Winterfell, you can see the green and yellow shields in the background. Apparently some knights/soldiers came a long way for their King. xD

{Show Rant... kind of.}

We'll make the battles what they should have been in the show. Like you said, the show made it seem that the smaller Houses just didn't exist. It's real bad when you think about it. Particularly with the Reach, the most powerful kingdom of the seven. Not to mention they weren't really involved in any actual fighting.

They had at least seventy-thousand men armed and ready to fight at a moment's notice, but the Lannisters just walk on by? There are dozens of castles, cities, towns and fortress surrounding Highgarden. It's pretty much like saying you invade America from California and head to Washington D.C., but instead of being hit with a massive attack, you just walk there.

I could try to look through the terrible writing between characters, but when you just "forget" about world-building in something like Game of Thrones(that is built on knowing the world and knowing that the other kingdoms do exist), that is when your show/film falls off the rails. Example of the differences is that in the beginning of the series, Robb had the Umbers, Glovers, Karstarks, Boltons and so on right in your face which made you feel the investment of multiple Houses forming this one big army while also giving life to the North for others to see this is not just the Starks VS the Lannisters, but the entire North against the Lannisters. However, in season eight, Jon had the Karstarks, but only the Karstarks? Jon said two seasons ago that the North consisted of around two dozen smaller Houses, but hey, it's D&D. Writing isn't exactly their thing.

It's a funny thing that when the show had a smaller budget and it was more focused on the writing than giant battles, the show was strong, but when they had the budget and seemed to not care about writing, no one really cared about the series anymore. I certainly didn't. The cracks shown in season four, but when the cracks grew and grew, it was six for me with the Battle of the Bastards. Yes, it was a lovely scene, but the character of the Smalljon was butchered. They had the perfect person to play him, a minor character, but one that sticks with you, a trend that seems to happen in the show(the more minor characters interest you more than the main ones). A hardcore Stark Loyalist, to a full-blown traitor. While Jon letting the Wildlings through the Wall gave the Umbers every reason to force them to fight for survival, despite going against the Starks, you know D&D were pushing the traitor angle. Then seven broke the cracks and the flood came through, but eight just killed every brain cell we as fans had.

Couldn't agree more with that, pretty much summed it up perfectly. It's actually unbelievable how many characters D&D butchered or just didn't include, so many unnecessary scenes that could have been better utilised to include more plots or lesser houses etc. One of the biggest disappointments for me was House Manderly, one of the most powerful houses in the north especially towards the end and all we got from them was one Wyman Manderly scene, which sums up D&D's treatment of the smaller houses in a nutshell. It's such a shame that GoT didn't have writers capable of writing good dialogue and plot lines. I dread to think what those ******* will produce in the future but I refuse to believe that it can be any worse than what they came up with for season 8.
