I came across so many people saying this, which I just don't quite get it. Did you know you can Fast Travel anywhere and any time? Once you've captured any bases or watch towers, you can Fast Travel straight there in seconds, reducing horse riding's time consuming by roughly 70-80%. I've seen lots of people claiming to be riding their horse for 5 minutes just to get to any quest but I'm 50 hours in and I'm yet to encounter more than 1-2 minutes horse riding at most on any circumstances. I'm very confused.

Also sprinting your horse helps. You should be sprinting your horse all the time since it increases your horse level that way too.
So even when fast travel becomes more readily available, the open world still affects the flow of battles. If you just fast travel to the next fort(which almost all of look the same) then you just grapple hook over the wall and bum rush the main enemy you need to kill. Then rinse and repeat until the battle is over. There is now hardly any real meat or progression to the battles, it's either ride for wayyy too long to get to something more interesting or more combat or it's fast travel from one objective to the next pretty much skipping majority of the content the game wants you to do, and in previous titles would have made for a full battle.
no offense but by "hardly any real meat or progression to the battles" you mean like every previous DW games? Because that's the way DW games have been played for almost 2 decades. You go kill an officer, pay little attention to the minimap, make your way to another officers, kill them, rinse and repeat. You can even rush the boss in majority of the stages in previous games unless it's an escort map. You ignore all the officers, go over to the enemy's main camp, slay some officers guarding the camp, boil a ramen waiting for the delayed announcing message to catch up to your actions, enemy's main camp opens up, boss appears, kill the boss and the end. There's almost no variety in previous enemy castles, too unless it's something unique like Mt. Dingjun. DW never has any flashy or interesting looking stage designs. This is DW after all. It's not Sengoku BASARA. (again, no offense. I like them both)

imo people have been giving way more negative thought to DW9 than it really deserves. Yes, the game is just average, but it's not that much of a difference compared to previous game. The only thing that changed so much and we all have to relearn is the combat mechanics.

I mean, if you complain that you spend half the time doing something else that is not combat and that's not what you expect from a DW game, then I don't even think you'd enjoy any Empire games... Because this has even more action than the Empire titles.

I haven’t enjoyed an Empires game since 6, so that’s a fair point.

I made sure to select 'very bad' when rating the Open World.

Expressed my dissatisfaction in those final three fields, though did so eloquently. (i.e. no all caps or nsfw language.) Hopefully they'll drop the open world in DW9XL or DW10.

Because I swear, traveling to the snowy north and finding the Great Wall of China is pretty much the only thing I've done in the open world that was vaguely entertaining for me.

There's all this empty space between Hanzhong/Fan Castle/Baidi Castle. Where is Shangyong? That's a bit of an important spot in relation to Guan Yu's last stand, since it's the place Meng Da and Liu Feng were commanding and where Liao Hua ran to find help(and was refused.)
You are no match for General Ji!

The open world just needs work, granted a fair bit of it, but I don't want it removed. I want them to improve upon it; more interactions, maybe some random encounters?
It'd be great if they find a way to fuse the open world with the old style, depending on area/chapter/plot/whatever.
And yes, I said this on the survey.

Maybe they’ll add in later as DLC.

As for the survey, I’ll do that when I have access to a keyboard. My iPhone can’t handle the amount of criticism I’m gonna drop on KT.
