I agree with your overall sentiment Curious, and we need more innovative developers like Taleworlds to achieve success. However, even as a huge M&B fan, I am not very excited about this expansion. It appears to simply be too much of the same thing, and after spending 100+ hours on the original and also in Warband, I don't think I'll be able to get into "more of the same." This is especially true given that there are some aspects of the game that need some fleshing out; going to a new setting without improving the game doesn't seem like it's worth it to me, as much as it pains me to say that about a series that I greatly enjoy. On-foot melee combat needs a serious overhaul as well; the "invincible, unbreakable blocking" (even without a shield!!) and limited feel of realistic swing impact makes fighting while not on horseback extremely dull.
