    I did research as well

    This is a fantastic idea! Thank you guys, trying right now!!

    Units are Great! All of them!!

    Loading screens are brilliant! Art is nice in general, especially the backgrounds behind the unit cards!

    Also I like the unit sizes very much!!

    The one negative thing: How can I wait for this without a lot of drugs?! JK lol _

    This demo is amazing. The units are just perfect in my opinion, music is very immersive. I believe I can say that WotW is a piece of art, and it's just the begginning . Keep the good work up !

    +Rep all of you.

    Thanks a lot, It's great suprise!
    Now I can do tests on my own

    Generally mod is very good, some advantages:
    -menu and loading screens
    -accurate and beautiful units (one question: was Telderons de Brameam majority of Scottish forces in battle of Bannockburn?)
    -few new animations(I like this with overturning enemies by pikes)
    -schiltrom ability for pikemen (how?)
    -frighten foot for knights
    -well armoured units in tight formation are able to repulse charge
    -archers and warriors with javelins have bonus against cavalry
    -weaker units have looser formation
    -very low morale for weaker units
    -there are falchions!

    Of course I earnestly was looking for some disadventages and I found some (but It wasn't easy task )
    -I think that schiltrom pikemen are too vulnerable to cavalry charge. Even unit of mounted sergeants can kill more than 40% of unit with one charge!
    If you don't change It player will not try to outflank enemy (in case of squere formation of pikemen) or weaken them with arrows but simply charge the centre of enemie's lines (or circles) and still win!
    Remember that in battle of Falkirk English cavalry was really helpless until archers weaken schiltroms.
    Knights have frighten foot so maybe charge value is still too high?
    Or the best solution will be (but I don't know how to do It and I'm not sure If it is possible without unbalancing of another factors) If cavalry's casualties were higher during moment of charge against schiltrom - player may charge schiltrom and inflict high casualties or even break morale and schiltrom but his/her own cavalry will suffer high losses so decision will not be such simple as now...
    Schiltroms are also too small but I know that units can't be larger than 100 in case of normal and 250 of huge size. Only idea I have is to reduce almost all units (except schiltrom pikemen) 2,5 times and play with huge settings... What do you think?

    And remember, I'm critical but I also think that this mod is really wonderful

    PS: statistics after battles:
    -against 2 schiltrom pikemen and 2 berdiche militia -459 men, I've got one unit of late English knights-39 man. I've lost only 4 man
    -against 4 schiltrom pikemen-509 man-It was a bit more difficult, I've lost 10 man.
    In both cases I do no refined maneuvers (It is difficult with one unit )-only simple, frontal charges!
    In both cases I've been fighting about anticavalry units.
    Just imagine how quickly Scottish schiltroms would be destroyed in Falkirik battle If heavy cavalry were such superior to pikemen-with certainty English/Welsh longbowmen couldn't demonstrate their skills...
