So far I haven’t had any negative experiences with the new patch. But I do have a bit of an issue with all the new weapons added. While I am in favour of more and more and more item variety always, currently, if a recruit is using something not all that good, it very quickly gets swapped for something better in the nearest town. Perhaps would be better to make weapons a bit less available in shops, so procuring through loot and fixing broken ones would have the brothers make better use of what they started out with?
Also, more easier encounters in the earliest game would be welcome. Small bandit gangs and such, rather than immediatelly be jumped by werewolves, orcs, etc.
Other than that, it seems to be progressing nicely. :)
