I’m at max level, and sometimes when I fight hostile peasants and bandits I get one that is able to perfectly counter every one of my strikes.
In addition, the only bandits I’m encountering now are heavily armed and armored to a man. One or two in a large party is fine, but what are the chances that all almost every bandit is a rouge hedge knight armored in full plate?
This reminds me too much of Oblivion and how the level scaling would result in bandits wearing the best armor and using the best weapons in the game. It break immersion and level progression.
