    Quality game...

    The Devs are very strong on community driven content and have already a polished, working and FUN game.

    Currently very little teamwork on generic servers, but I can imagine on Clan servers it'll be superb.

    I highly recommend this game for all enthusiast of the period.

    Sounds like a decent Early Access release
    Its always great to see more musket themed games on the market!

    Seeing the Artillery pieces in Holdfast Nations how well they look. I have a lot of hope for War of Right.
    The basic mechanics of the piece itself is pretty okay. the handling is way way to basic.

    Will other artillery pieces be able to destroy yours in the future for War of Rights?

    Let's hope so! Also, infantry should be able to destroy artillery pieces.

    Hold Fast IS a fun game. But formations are almost non existent, players randomly running this way and that, there is a rush to capture points on the map, and folks haphazardly crouching behind rocks and stone walls and spread out shooting at the enemy. It's kind of a Napoleonic War free for all. So, while it is fun, I enjoy playing War of Rights even more....but that's just me.

    If you never played Napoleonic Wars you wouldn't understand the community of Holdfast. You will find formations during events but on the public servers it's mostly do whatever you want.

    Are you talking about Total War or the Mount and Blade mod? Either way you are right, I haven't played online multiplayer that much until recently. Holdfast is a good time (I just got off the game), but I like the "believability" of WoR.

    Afther playing my first H:NaW 20 vs 20 LB yeasterday i have to say i had a ton of fun.

    Holdfast has the potential to be a really good game for atm it is a ok game. Holdfast can even be the NW killer if the Dev team work out the lag and melee issue. I really like the Naval battle, Coustal siege, ragdoll effect and the arty.
