    About the ropes... is it possible to attach rope to a block of stone thats placed on a trap door.. and when the enemy walks under that trapdoor carelessly then that stone block will fall on that guys head and kills him?
    In short... Mario time :D

    Ifs that's the boat speed of the final introduced boats, frankly swimming doesn't look so bad

    It's plenty fast, considering staying safe in-transit is a simple matter of sitting there with a shield. You cant even say that for walking.

    Just for those who still think the boats will go as slow as in the video.

    Boats going slow is fine as long as we can have catapults ontop of the boat being towed, I sense naval warfare.

    Will boats have straight-up health percentages like the catapult, or will there be theoptipn of punching a hole through the hull to sink one? It would seem awfully tedious to pincushion a boat with arrows to destroy it.
    I'm hoping it's the latter, because watching a boatload of enemies floundering in the water while it sinks seems exceptionally fun.

    I agree, some kind of a poison mechanism:
    shoot some arrows in the boat, and it slowly starts losing health, and sinks deeper into the water.

    I think boats should be invincible. But they sink if everyone on them dies.
    Also, they should hold a maximum of 4-5 people. And for every person on it, the boat sinks a bit deeper. That means that more people on the boat equals less cover for them.

    I hope they come with a reasonable price...
    Otherwise people will stick with bridges and swimming.

    Wait boats do you know what it means it means that under the cover of darkness a group of knights can creep up the enemy shore and blow the enemy base to kingdom-come.
