Attacking Inside Settlements Does Not Force out

So I've noticed more of then than not, even when completely wrecking someone, they are not forced out of the settlement, if they are not wounded.

There is no way to force people out of a settlement.

There is. Tom implemented it a while ago, and I saw it work at the battle of Whisperreap. Winning a fight, and wounding the Noble, will force him outside.

Correct, if he is soundly defeated, he will be forced out. But not every defeat will result in that.

Believe me, I soundly defeated him. He just ran away before I could wound him.

Then he doesn't count as defeated, if he escaped without a scratch. But he would still be fighting in that case. Strange.

I know that routed for nobles doesn't work as it should, as does slaughtering entourage. I just lack the time to track these complicated issues with all the hotfixes I have to deploy against the ongoing abuses.

I've seen a single (slumberblighted) noble retreat from battle against +600 soldiers repeatedly, so he was never captured, wounded or killed. Nor forced out of the settlement. It took smaller numbers of soldiers for the battle to actually happen.

Or faster troops.

Look, we all know the survivability of nobles against massive forces is too high. The problem is that if I raise it, then griefers will roflstomp you all and kill all your favorite characters, and/or that of everyone new to the game.

Have retreat count as defeated?

The +600 troops had troops of all types: archers (armored and normal), infantry (light, medium and heavy), and cavalry (light and heavy).


To kill the noble I had to use less troops, as retreating from battle did not allow for any kind of combat or retreat phase.
