Many people noticed the ridiculous cartoonish large weapons and arrows and it’s indeed a major flaw which I hope will be fixed.
Sadly, armors aren’t much better. English units have ugly cliché armors which make no sense historically-wise, the devs didn’t make any research for them.
Indians at least have historical armors, but they date from the 18th-19th centuries (kula khud style)…
I’m not saying that armors should be 100% historically accurate, but hell just some historical inspiration please.
The following pictures show reenactment 13th century Western European armors, which would be perfect for English castle age knights for example. Imagine how cool that would look in game. It’s not complicated: just a well-fitted hauberk, cylindrical helm and colorful shields, surcoats and caparisons.
