You can have monsters and you can have larger unit sizes across the board to compensate, instead we have total war skirmishes and monsters that do wreck tens of models with each swing but they all get up because CA had to impose a cap on max nr of models damaged since units are so fucking small.

That is not the case at all, it was just expensive, low unit count armies.

That's not an excuse, you can have inexpensive units have 300 models and expensive ones have 200, instead we have inexpensive units have 160 and mid tier units 100, it's a complete downgrade compared to previous TW, so much for improvements to the engine.

Because of it we have Kholek smashing his massive hammer sending hundreds flying only to have killed 5 models with a swing.

Because chariots can't MAGICALLY ram like that, is your argument for it doing so to turn off your brain and "dude magic lmao" you hypocritical cum guzzling drone? How the fuck do you think it makes sense for pic related to ram things, what's making it do that? Without the information to reach an understanding of the machinations of a steam tank you can accept that it can do that, but not this.

they are in-between foot squires and greatswords in price and don't have an anti-inf bonus. Executioners are the most elite delf inf. White Lions are presumably best used as a cheaper ap option to cut through defensive armored units. In battle one they got rekt hard by the corsairs with the hag support, and in battle 2 there weren't any units they would have been good against and they got rekt by monsters

So mp balance will probably have the delfs on top because murderous prowess automatically makes all of their units that much more dangerous. Helfs despite the memes will probably be number 2 due to a balanced roster and having the best lores of magic (life, light, etc).

It is now September, and the return of the true Phoenix King is nigh. All across Naggaroth the legions of the Witch King beckon to their sovereigns summons.

Surveying his skin cloth campaign map for the last time, Malekith knows to be ever weary of the roving tribes in the north; and also not to be ignorant of any ambitious dreadlords.
Word has reached him that his mother has marched south without order, it is of little consequence, though the rumour that she has resurrected her cult of pleasure is troubling.

On Ulthuan his spies report that Tyrion is engaged with another cult, taking advantage of the conflict could allow the Witch King to establish another foothold on Ulthuan.

Further south where the shifting sands of Araby blow, it has been reported that the servile men of the Asrai have conquered swathes of land, the riches of this land could well aid Malekiths coffers if he chose to wrest it from them. Though another rumour, perhaps untrue, but not worth ignoring is that a hold of the ratmen is situated somewhere in this land.

Finally from out of the land of Lustria little has been heard, the most valuable pieces of information being that a notable lord of the lizardmen is currently fighting human settlers by himself, it could be advantageous to eliminate such an opponent as swiftly as possible. As for the other piece of information, it has been heard that the whoreson Teclis is leading an expedition on the southernmost tip of Lustria, supposing he survives the dangers of the land it would give Malekith great pleasure to have a rematch.

Regardless of where the first strike is made Malekith will control the vortex and regain his homeland. Domination by a best elf soon!

do not get into a straight face-to-face infantry brawl when using the high elves
skaven armies require some heavy hitters, you can't just rely on clanrats & plague monks, the lack of armour will fuck you
lizardmen armies require some infantry, you can't just rely on monsters (seemed to be the problem when they played the skaven, ran out of supporting infantry units)
lizardmen also must take something to deal with missile cavalry
the net spell is still the best

I really hate when people use the "dude it's fantasy so everything gets a free pass no matter how unreasonable lmao" argument. In this case it's more about how this DElf chariot is not any sillier than other units. It's in line with the setting. Bones are objects (even if they used to be a part of something living) and they get reanimated through magic, the Tomb Kings will have stone golems, the hellcannon is sentient. That autist just has to accept it's plausible.

Considering White Lions folded instantly in both games, the Star Dragon, which really should > every other monster in the game, got rekt by a magic bucket o' blood on wheels and some anti-infantry troops, and Tyrion, their best melee lord, got rekt and ran away in both games, I'd say 'average' would be pushing it.

It's not like he was bringing the cheapest units in their roster, he was loading his list with expensive, high-end stuff like Star Dragons, Dragon Princes and Phoenix Guard.

It shouldn't have won, but look at how fast it's HP dropped until he dropped a life spell onto it to shore it up, it'd have died in seconds otherwise.

It is the year 422 A.D, only a couple years after the death of Emperior Flavius Honorius Augustus, a great governor, reformator and the one responsible for the Wesern Empire's continued prosperity in times the Eastern Empire was broken and limited to but an Island. His reigh might have started with considerable losses of Roman Soil, but the lands were since reclaimed. Honorius also forged an unbreakable alliance with the tribe of Vandals, who were given Belgica in exchange for being not only staunch allies but protectors of Roman borders for the many tribes marauding in the wastelands. Honorius brokered peace with many of the new countries now occupying the lands of the former Eastern Empire, most importantly turning Asia into a client state and by that taking Constantinopole under Roman rule. Most importantly, it was his legions, encamped on our Eastern Border, who broke the back of the Hunnic war machine and felled the great Attila the Hun. His deeds will be forever remembered.

And now, his son, Emperor Camillius Piso is also making a name for himself. Not only did his legions succesfully subjugate the Franks, destroy the Danes and delocalize the Angles, they claimed Gothiscandza as a new Roman province, spreading the light of civilization to previously untouched places. Moreover, the joint offensive with the Eastern remants on the coasts controlled by the Sassanid-Lakhmid alliance was very succesfull and crushing for the Persian military, allowing our new Himyarite and Lakhmid allies to sweep in from the south and destroy the former Eastern Empire entirerly. Truly it is a glorious time for Rome.

Nope, started the campaign half a year ago (came back to it recently) and did that very early, as soon as they entered a land I was ok with loosing. I did the same for the Suebi in Lucdunensis but that region was later taken over by the displaced Saxons- which allowed me to kill the Saxons and retake the whole province. The Suebians then migrated east and were slaughtered by Huns, sadly.

The people I'm currently at war are the Sclavenians, and they're far away, so right now we're just gathering forces and thinking about our next move.

In this article they call the setting "unique" and that they're doing some UI and enviromental work to capture the mood. There's also talk about character interactions and "major personalities".

Some people think this sounds like China. It could be Renesaince and the Ancient world before Rome too though, I think. I'd like it to be TW Victoria but they've technically done that time period with FotS.

Gee, I wonder if that has anything to do with them revamping the rules so it's actually possible to PLAY the fucking game.

Seriously, aside from GW's complete refusal to actually market it, the problem with Warhammer fantasy lay in it's ruleset. You're not gonna lure in new players, especially not kids and teens, if you say:
"NO! You're NOT going to play with those models you bought that you thought looked good, you're gonna buy 8 boxes of basic skeleton warriors/elf spearmen/state troops first and then you're gonna paint ALL of them and you're gonna LIKE IT or else NO GAME FOR YOU"

You mean that thing that made it even easier to play with just the models you actually liked since there are fewer restrictions on what models can be used together?
Look, Age of Sigmar is a fucking mess from a lore an aesthetic perspective, but looking at it as a tabletop wargame it is INFINITELY preferable.
Buy a few boxes of stuff you think looks neat
paint the models
download the rules for free on the website.
Play.
That's a real fucking pitch. In Fantasy it went like this.
Decide ahead of time which fairly restrictive grouping of guys you want to play with
Buy a few boxes of things from that group you think look neat
Then buy even more boxes of guys from that faction you probably DON'T think look need to fulfill point requirements
Then buy two overpriced rulebooks
The paint all the stuff you bought, even the stuff you're not excited about
Then find someone who has a balanced army of roughly the same amount of points as you do
Then play
If you can't understand why one of these would sell better when pitched as an actual game rather than a fictional setting (Shit that newcomers don't care about yet) then you're just delusional.

@MPmaster

"Just ignore the rules"
This is a shitty argument, if you're selling a game that has a rulebook (That you charged the kid like 60 bucks for by the way) telling that kid to then just ignore the rulebook makes for a pretty fucking confused salespitch. That kind of freeform play needed to be baked into the rules from the start, in fact it needed to be the default, with point restricted play being the "competitive" variant or something to that effect.

Agree, Huns are fine when you're playing a minor faction and are forced to flee or fight off their roving stacks, they're more like a force of nature than a coherent AI faction. But it completely turns me off playing a WRE campaign since I can't begin to imagine the number of defensive battles I'll have to fight over and over again.

Disagree about Chaos though - whilst I think they're unreasonably tough for the AI to resist, and just make the late game less interesting by annihilating half the map, they only really have a handful of high-quality full stacks for the player to fight themselves, unless you're a retard and fight on higher difficulties. Beating a stack and then playing whack-a-mole as they flee across a border and gain +70% troop regen whilst your army dies from attrition is infuriating though.

"Now kid, if you wanna play vampire counts you're gonna need to buy this Battalion Box™ that contains 20 skeleton warriors, 20 zombies, 10 ghouls and a corpse cart and paint those first, doesn't that sound fun?"
"Of course you could always buy this starter kit featuring [Factions kid isn't interested in] vs [Other faction kid isn't interested in], it's really ideal for newcomers and it's great Value™"

Maybe we don't want those kids, maybe we want kids who will stay in this hobby for a long time, it's a luxury good. I welcome Sigmar because it's another game mode which I can play if I wish, but I can also play 8th ed if I wish, or 7th or 6th or 5th or 4th or 3rd or 2nd

Same but 40K. I assembled my own marines, painted my own marines, and naturally at that point they were a stiff breeze away from crumbling to dust.
Also doesn't help I have a cheapish two squad set up, and the first tourney I enter has the other guy field two chaos assault squads and one-turn kill me
Into the trash they went.

they ruin discussions about other Total War games

Maybe because a lot of people were more interested in posting about how much they hate "fantasyfags" or whatever, instead of actually talking about the other total war games.

It's the "take it easy" poster that everybody should have listened too. Not some insane slav.

Want to play Attila.
Your choices are:
Play with an already big ass Empire that's being attacked from all sides.
Play as a shitstain of a "kingdom" that will never get a halfway decent infrastructure.
Play as the hunnic horde and never make a kingdom at all.
Play as Sassanids and start having already won the game.
Play as Sassanid cocksucker #12 and try not to piss off your overlord.

It bothers me so much. I just want a traditional "start small and expand into a big, flourishing empire" campaign. Barbarian kingdoms are the closest thing, but they will forever live in huts made of shit and wood.

I am really disappointed at the way intrigue at court has been made. An increase or decrease in relations doesn't sound refined enough desu.
I wanted to be able to manually break trade deals or alliances or bribe for war.
As of now we can only invite others to join the war against someone we're fighting, but I'd like to see Helves have the ability to pay factions to declare a war on someone else.

On top of that I wanted to see alliance actually fully declaring war on the other alliance. If I as Tyrion and my ally Teclis want to declare war on the Dawi which are allied with Agrund clan, I want Teclis to get into a war with Agrund clan as well as the Dawi.

if it takes 25 turns on land and 4 turns over water to reach your enemies, then yes

I think so, after all, computing powers are still not good enough to render massive battles with lots of background math going behind the scenes. Honestly, every recent Total War feels like CA already pushes their boundaries with their engines. All that fidelity, detailed fighting and animations must demand a hefty chunk of PC powers.

Probably would take a serious rewrite of an engine or some breakthrough in PC hardware.

AI can fuck up and the game in general is not designed for having so many units. Stuff like map size aside, think about how M2 already had problems during sieges with unit sizes above normal, or how Empire had issues with formations when regiments became too big. Pathfinding is always an issue and some games even crash if you mod units to have too many men.

As a game Attila is better than than R2, and it could probably be argued it's the best in the series (and this is coming from that doesn't even like the game)

But Rome 2s time period is way better.

After this whole thread has been a shitshow, you still think that?

Some guy said that he's glad that fantasyfags are gone in a few years and it all went downhill from there. Not that I have a horse in this race, my most played game is still Medieval 2
