Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord

Caravans are suicidal
Caravans (and other lordless parties who are in battle with you) charge straight at the enemy, giving you no ability to direct them when they are vastly outnumbered.

This can be especially problematic when the quest gives you mounted raiders that you have to contend with and the bulk of your troops are still foot soldiers, where normally using a tactic that keeps your units from being ploughed through would have made these battles far easier to handle, instead you are forced to charge at the enemy otherwise you risk failing the mission due to leader of the caravan being a complete bonehead at tactics and too hard-headed to follow commands.

Why was this changed going from Warband to Bannerlord?

Can you upload a video recording of this to upload.taleworlds.com? Please include your current thread's link in the description as instructed in the below article so I can identify it.

If you want a video... thats gonna be tricky since I run off of a hotspot with limited data.

At a minimum, I won't be able to even upload the video until after the 25th of this month due to data constraints.
Do you have any mods? Can you upload your save file?
At the time of report, I was witnessing this behavior in vanilla gameplay. Behavior persists in 1.6.2 (have not tested 1.6.3 as patch file size is just way to big for me to swap between willy nilly, why are patches in the gigabytes...)



I uploaded the video to youtube, of which I will include the link to the location you requested. scratch that, I don't have the data to be doing double uploads, not to mention I trust youtube more in optimizing upload sizes so I am not eating through my monthly data.

By the time you asked this question, I had started on a new save file which includes mods. I can however start a new play-through. Still this is less of a bug and more of an AI flaw that was introduced in bannerlord.

I have been informed that this is intended, regular caravans do not have this behavior. This behavior is particular to this caravan due to the quest. Thanks for reporting!
