Do they seriously expect us to deal with fucking Pre-Foundation Norsca until fucking May? Surely they can get this shit done faster that that, specially when all the content was already developed. I get that they have to implement it from the start again, but it's shouldn't amount to more than admittedly intensive codemonkey work.

i've been a fantasy supporter since july of last year, when CA made the beastmen announcement.. but this is just.. t.. too much.

i just can't take the risk. i'm s-so sorry, but... this is the end. i wish it wasn't, but... but i just knew it was too good to be.. true. this is the end of the warhammer campaign.

How to get good at WRE in Attila? I've dismantled all the Churches because they were eating up all the money I've had, but goddamn every barbar tribe is out for my ass. I have like three legions holding the eastern/northern border, and two legions basically roaming around Spain and Italy in case of rebellions. Also, Attila is pretty fucking fun, it's a shame that it's in such an unpopular time period. Also it makes the best carpets.

Can someone please explain to me why Warhammer 1/2 get such great reviews from Steam players when almost ALL of the basic gameplay content from previous titles has been removed? Maybe I've just got different taste or I'm a contrarian but this doesn't seem like a TW game to me.

Why do people like either game so much? I thought Atilla was a money-grab as it uses almost the exact same map as Rome 2, but at least there was unit variety. Just played 2 as High Elves and you get spearmen or spearmen with shields. It seems every faction gets maybe 10 variations of units.

then focus on stabilizing sanitation and public order
building lots of fucking capitols and aqueducts, or theaters if you want to go pagan, which is arguably the best route
though you won't be able to get divine and cultural victory because both require high tier christcuck buildings

Haven't played TWW2 yet. A quick glance looks like Influence is only for High Elves anyway?

That's not really what I'm talking about anyway. Listing everything AC diplomacy would let you do would take too much time (city trading, borrowing money, trading units, faction-specific texts, realistic feeling personalities, etc). Suffice it to say, Total War is trash with diplomacy, and no number of mods could ever bring it close to a Windows 95 game.

For all you Albionfags out there, someone off-site has created and made art for a complete Albion race for TWWH to show how they could work without straying from the limited fluff they have. I haven't really cared for this race much (seeing them overlapping too much with Norscans and Welves) but I have to say I'm impressed.

Army list:
https://imgur.com/a/duAHD

From the author:
> There is a ton of lore for Albion that I poured over when creating the roster, but only a handful of actual models from the TT. Between the TT lore and the GW novel called Giantslayer that takes place in Albion, there was indeed plenty to pull from. I did take a number of creative liberties while trying to keep it thematically based in the lore.
Hengus the Druid - A druid of Albion abducted as a prisoner of war by the Tileans along with two Giants. He and his Giant comrades quickly escaped their captors and proceeded to rampage across the land, eventually becoming mercenaries for hire in a long quest to find their way back to their mist-shrouded homeland.
Bologs - A legendary Giant worshiped as a living god by the most primitive of Albion's Clansmen.
Cachtorr - Twin of the mighty Bologs. He is slightly more intelligent than Bologs and is able to understand the speech of the Druids. He also took part in a battle against a pair of other Giants that lasted for hundreds of years and involved countless thrown boulders.
The Oracle of the Truthsayers - Though she only shows up in the book Giantslayer, she is a major player in Albion, more politically powerful than most Truthsayers.
Directly from TT: Truthsayer, Fenbeast, basic Giants, Druid.
Directly influenced by/ extracted from GW lore: Handmaiden, Clansmen, Swamptracker.
Historically Celtic units: Woad Warriors, Woad Raiders, Painted Wolf-Hound, chariot. Warriors of Albion are frequently described as having blue Woad paint/ tattoos, so there we have it.

tfw the experiment isn't a proper rpg-like system for equipping your lords and LLs(changing appearance and weapons)

I think that TWW should build more on their basic rpg framework on the campaign map instead of adding typical total war mechanics like squalor or whatever(though I wouldn't mind it). Basically be more unique. Different total wars for different things I guess.

Bretonnia, Skaeling are shitting doomstack one after the another, you can't leave marienburg or couronne without them sacking one of the two region or raiding
Belegar: Clan Skyre invites Wood elfs against you
Play Empire, you are going to declare war at Karak Hirn and Dwarfs friends because they always take one of the province in Wisseland, giving you untrustworthy traits or even worst Thorgrim is going to take Sylvania faster than you.
Play Pestilens, clan Eshin invites Sentinel of Xeti and Teclis to join against you.
Play Clan Mors, enjoy fightining strenght rank 1 dwarfs with more then 50+ settlements

@Sir_Gallonhead

An RPG system where you only control a small band of heroes around the world would be fucking neat though.

- You can pick any race and will affect your starting position
- You cannot capture settlements, but you can pillage and raze them
- You can buy and trade items from settlements
- Instead of 20/20 stacks, you will control at most 2-3 squads or a couple heroes
- You can join big battles with the AI as mercenaries where your small band of units join in the regular clusterfuck combat
- More detailed skill trees

That said, I'm sure it's gonna be just some boring MP mode.

Begin final ritual, 6 stacks of vermintide appear next to Naggarond which only has a no name level 8 lord guarding it while Malekith fucks the Asur
2 meh tier armies + garrison vs 3 full skaven vermintide stacks, fight is hardest I've ever had, even harder than the final battle because I'm lacking a sorceress to begin with and have no healing magic let alone vortex healing spells
Saved the replay because smart
Globbed on by vermintide, losing stop gap lords left right and centre but doing the job

They set that precedent in TWW1, and no it wasn't monthly release but frequent content updates every 60 or so days on average. Just for comparison:

Wood Elves
6 new Legendary Lords (including new start positions)

Some quick notes on Thrones of Britannia interview from yesterday, in case there are any slowpokes ITT:
There will be 16 Settlement maps, based on Roman walled settlements/forts, Roman Ports, Viking ports, Ringforts, hillforts, etc. and will be spread around the map There are no unique settlements because if they had unique settlements. No map will represent more than 5 settlements at once. No word on minor settlements, which function quite differently, apparently.
There will be no "Knight" esque units, heavy shock cav or even heavy cav in general. Cavalry are for running down skirmishers and flanking. Basically heavy cav simply don't exist in England during this period and so aren't featured at all.
The Welsh will be the main Cavalry faction. Even with point #2 made, there will still be some alright cavalry, and for those that absolutely need to have decent cavalry the Welsh will probably be for you. They specifically mention Welsh "Teulu" cavalry. The Welsh will also have very good Longbows apparently
Shieldwalls are very important for most factions, though there is variety and specialization. ToB is a very focussed game as far as Geography and the Era it takes place in are concerned, as such there will be some similarities in factions, however they will still play fairly differently. Irish are very focussed on skirmishing and javelins, Saxons are the more jack of all trades factions with (relatively, in Atilla they'd be considered to have shit) Cavalry, heavy shieldwall infantry, archers, skirmishers, everything. The Norse have a focus on Axes.
Berserkers are indeed confirmed. Apparently they function very similarly to Berserkers from AoC.
Some of the biggest changes are those to the campaign map, which they seemed quite giddy about. Also, campaign info will come NEXT WEEK.
Picts have not been mentioned in anything so far. The picts, IE ancestors of the Scots have yet to be mentioned at all.

They never announce things months in advance unless there is a shitstorm (Norsca) or it's a single piece of content with nothing else in the way. Hell we only first heard of Empire Divided in October, and that was one month before it's release. That generally seems to be how CA announces shit.

Well I did say I was using a couple of mods didn't I? I am using a mod that makes norscan buildings give half their usual income and a mod that among other things, splits up Norsca into more factions. This makes the norscan still go on raids and so on, but it fixes the problem where ONE norscan faction can basically raid and war against tons of factions at the same time AND defend their territory with no problem.

Because they did ok work before.

It was the launch, mostly.
The worst in series history before Rome 2 took that spot. Some people claimed it made their computers BSOD. There are some other things (the AI on campaign is kinda passive and the AI in sieges is blatantly unfinished and tries to form a regular battle line when sallying out) but mods help.

It's probably the total war that was and is in the worst state. Filled with bugs(many are still there).

@Methnerd
There was way too much wrong with it at release. People meme on Rome 2 because it had major graphical issues on release, but I think Empire had it worse. There were about a million things wrong with it, but off the top of my head there were two massive AI problems. First was that the AI was simply incapable of launching naval invasions. If you played England it was literally impossible to lose. Second was something called the charge bug where every single battle the AI would take all their line infantry and immediately charge you with them. You would never get two lines of muskets dueling it out, it was always you receiving a charge and shooting them up before they reached you. You may think it is an exaggeration but it was at least 75% of battles. It took them a really long time to fix either issue, and all the other ones I'm too lazy to type out.

5mileys

I suppose because I used mods a short while after playing is why I dont see some of the problems I guess, I wouldnt have known it was treated with such low regard.

CA puts in sliders allowing you to reduce damage & fatigue and increase unit sizes & leadership, meaning units don't break as fast and overall battles are slower if that's what you want
"WTF nobody asked for this"

Come on man, this is clearly a beta for letting players set up campaigns with the style of battles they want (current speed, even more fast & arcade-y, slower like Rome 1, etc. etc.). That's what's interesting about this, not LOL LOW GRAVITY gimmicks.

Well, not for a good few years (couldn't get it to work on a newer machine & wasn't bothered enough to work out why and fix it) but as far as I can remember it was slower than the warhammer games. I'm pretty sure units tended to brawl for longer before one of them broke and ran. I did mostly play brutii though, so a lot of my battles were hastatii/principes/legionnaires vs hoplites, I guess in a julii campaign you'd see the barbarian units breaking faster.

- lower taxes to help public order, even 1 of your armies will easily rekt everything except hun doomstacks during the mid-late game
- fight every single settlement battle to whittle down the dumb AI for when your main armies arrive
- subjugate barbar tribes and roman rebel factions to form a buffer zones, they'll hate you and you might have to subjugate them a few times but they will be at war with your 9000 enemys so you'll quickly get shitloads of good rep and their ridiculous AI cheats will pump out stacks to help you

Keep Britannia, Africa, Spain and 1 large city in between Mediolanum and Spain, get rid of churches.
Manage your starting units well. You need to gather your starting units in Africa and kick niggers ass, gather british units and repel normans-> beat celts, gather spain-france-germany starting boys to kill the germanic barbar horde and then disband this army, gather troops in Dalmatia-Pannonia and raze 1 settled barbar tribe then disband the army, it would help alot later.

At turn like 10-15 your Pannonian army and your spain-french will be done for along with the territories and rebellions will start to spawn.

You'l need 1 army for 3 spanish rebellions, 1 for all italian rebellions, 1 for british (assuming you didnt fucked up and its stil alive) and 1 for Africa (assuming you didnt fucked up here aswell).
After rebellions are killed you can disband spanish army and turn italian army into some kind of offensive force and maybe even attack something.

Some people are saying that keeping Britannia is bad but it is like one of the few spots where Huns will never come.

But i understand that baddies can easily fuck up there.
And just in case you dont know you are keeping Spain and Africa because it is fertile soil.

I meant; The problem is the potential of this scenario being the case every time is very high.

The fact you claim that Dwarves or Norsa last beyond turn 25 shows you haven't actually played the game that much at all, let alone won a campaign on Legendary.

I haven't encountered the dwarf issue, but I have encountered the norscan issue in too many campaigns(until I modded it that is). I mentioned the dwarf one because I have seen a lot of other pepole complain about it. Right now I am actually not using any mods that nerf dwarfs in any way.

Again, you're implying that the dev intended balance is a problem.

@eGremlin

how is this "pleasing the players" though?

All this will create are a handful of "haha wow look at 'em fly!" and "le ebin 100,000 skaven army SO EPIC" videos and then it'll be forgotten.

They shouldn't have hyped it up so much if it wasn't something that actually affected the game in a meaningful way.

This would be like if they hyped up the "nightmare mode" for rome 2 for weeks

Still don't see how this should be a problem.

Unless the models themselves are causing bugs (which they aren't), you could add the units without any bugs. Iirc the bugs came from Norsca's mechanics being funky.

A ROR is just some slightly changed or recolored models, higher stats, and one or two skills/abilities. That can be added manually.

It is a problem if it is not fun anymore for me. Therefor I use mods to fix that problem. I don't force you to do the same.

gamers are like babies user, think of this like CA as the parent and Reddit as the little stupid kid. The Laboratory update is the key CA is waving at their face to distract them for a little while until they sort something better. Not a whole lot of effort but it sure makes them shut up a little.

I can just say you don't use mods because you are too stupid to click on a green button or something.

I just wish that instead of wasting time and effort making this shit, they would've made in-game banners and musicians, or at least unit leaders...

No you haven't. Stop lying. You wouldn't make ridiculous claims and complain about non-existential problems if you had actually played a long campaign on legendary.

@viagrandad
Is it not alright NOW though? Most complaints seem relevant to when it came out and it seems alright now. I mean If I was to play the game today I would be playing it how it is now, not how it was then. Or am I mistaken and its a broken mess after so long that even mods do nothing, I havent played it but its the one I am looking into getting.

The chaos issue is alright now. Norsca wasn't changed.

@Flameblow
That's a very specific thing to wish for user.
But it seems like this whole new mode took little to no effort at all, they probably sorted it out during an afternoon, it obviously wouldn't take any time out of anything else they are working on at least, so there's that. As effortless a waving a key for a few seconds.

So Whelan_CA said that he saw how many people wanted The Laboratory settings for Campaigns. Would you like TL more if it applied to your campaigns as well?

If it had settings that is about

Horde spawn chance
Chaos invasion time
giving buffs to certain factions
tweaking starting situations like relations between nations at the start
and so on, then I would like it. I am absolutely not interested in decreasing gravity for battles in campaign.

But how it plays on the tabletop has nothing to do with it being a total war game. It is pretty clearl that you are just shitposting or have some inferiority issues since you immediately refer to the gameplay on the tabletop when it has very little to do with the case at hand

@cum2soon
Was out on break for a bit - for me when I say overwhelmed I mean I get a lot of factions wardec'ing me and I lose 3-4 territories every 5 turns or so.

The ones that dont get lost become economic drains as they get sacked/looted and then eventually revolt.

I get that I am supposed to basically invest only in Spain or the italian penninsula and then push back but for me its just too much bullshit to wade through.

I do like how CA implemented factions starting with lots of land. Honestly i think I can do it, i just get demoralized at losing territories,

@Ignoramus
shogun clans have a better time early game because imperial units all use the same shit you do more or less.

Late game when everyone has gattling guns and light rifles, revolver cav and armstrong guns the going can get tough.

The ultra hard tier is pro-shogun going republican.
