We should have destroyed SEGA, every game, expansion and dlc many years ago

Enough! Rome 2 is lost, and our modders have failed us. What was the last report of the next title?

My spies in Steam tell me his DLC was pulled! We must expect a new Fantasy title!

This is nonsense, no DLC was pulled. Rome controls the history strategy Market. He's not attacking, he's making allies. At this very moment he talks to Todd Howard. The Bethesdians! The Workshop will rise against us and there will be paid mods once more!

Ridiculous! Reddit won't stand for it. Their legions have sole traffic access to their website. I believe the next title will come from Alexander itself. He intends to do Macedon right. Persia will be DLC and sweep the market from there.

He will not release a new Fantasy title, or History! Our friends from /eagg/ report that he is hiring translators. He intends to circumnavigate Koei and....

Three Kingdoms Perhaps!

He will lose half his unit diversity alone! The other half will be spearmanii!

Do you expect modders to welcome that era when it arrives?

I suppose he will bring with him $10 Hero costume DLCs!

Shitposters, I dare say that will be quite the feat. Even for the great Creative Assembly

My main concern about modern wars in total war is not guns(I think they can make it good enough), but scale. WW2 isn't about few general jumping around with 20 units each. And there is no way total war could do armies of millions and frontlines.

Warhammer although not really complex in many sorts, is a great title if you always wanted big fantasy battles.

@Need_TLC
We're in /twg/, we're here to talk about total war do why would you assume anything otherwise? You do know that these big battles are made up of thousands of small scale actions fought by individual companies? It's impossible for a general to micromanage his troops. The battles would be about breaking through enemy lines and encircling concentrations of troops. Evidently the mass of WW2 media didn't teach you anything.

You do know that these big battles are made up of thousands of small scale actions fought by individual companies?
So, on the strategic map, you have that epic battle and then on the tactical level, you only control 1% of your forces while 99% of your forced do whatever they want? It's not much of a good game design.

Fuzzy_Logic

@DeathDog
Neither Kroxigors or Skinks are actually meant for fighting. Saurus are in much shorter supply since the polar gates broke so they have supplement the battle-line somehow.
They work well together because skinks are focused and energetic while kroxigors are steadfast and powerful.

Woah I was a little off then. I'm not sure why, but I thought there was a little-big brother dynamic going on with them.

@Fuzzy_Logic
Interesting. Really don't know much about the lore, other than I'm lizard people and dinosaurs. Crocodiles were my favourite animals as a kid, so it was only fitting that I play lizardmen with Kroxigors as my first WH2 campaign.

Okay, so followers like bodyguards are allowed to be omitted from combat, but having an agent represent a warband is absurd? What the hell does a captain do on his own without ANY troops? Why would a priest travel COMOLETLEY ALONE? Or why would a wizard travel without protection? Better yet, what does a goblin boss do without goblins to boss around? How van a chaos champion be without a warband if a chaos champion is only a champion once he has a warband?
Agents clearly represent a small group of people, and armies are clear not to exact scale.

You weren't here were you?

Rome 2 was supposed to be the pinnacle of Total War. The big circle that was supposed to be the crown jewel of the series, the title that was supposed to be even better than Rome 1 was. /twg/ drew dozens of detailed soldiers in the pre-launch hype, basically everyone preordered Rome 2 (except the few skeptics who no one believed). You had these weekly or monthly rally point videos on youtube where they hired actors and professionals to talk about the era and then cross referenced it to Rome 2 and how it all worked and it was basically hyped as shit, so much that Total War didn't go back to making rally points after Rome 2, the ginger faggot Will was basically shunned forever from the Total War channel and it's been a downwards spiral ever since then.

Additionally, Kurgan tribes are definitely possible with Tamurkhan as LL and all their forgeworld models. Hell, even Cathay isn't completely off the table until we see the final campaign map

This is part and parcel with Chinese history in general. Most of what audiences know about Chinese history is from the great romances, most of which were written hundreds of years after the actual events. In these novels, the deeds of actual historical figures are inflated and exaggerated, in the same way Homer inflates the deeds of Achilles and Odysseus. This is not helped by the Chinese government's meddling with historical education. The literature is mostly focused on the heroes of the time periods because they really were a head above the rest, both physically, and skill-wise. According to the literature Lu Bu is one of the greatest warriors of all time. In fact, there's a saying in Chinese: "A man must be like Lu Bu, a horse must be like his Red Hare".

From its title and the trailer, I'll assume that Total War: Three Kingdoms is not based on the actual time period, which is fascinating in its own right, but based on the Romance of the Three Kingdoms, the version most people know today. Personally, I think this is the right move. In theory, this can still be a historical game with the fantastical elements of the novel. Personally, I hope they can strike a balance between the two elements. Dynasty Warriors, as fun as it is, really does go overboard when it comes to the supernatural elements of the story. The Romance of the Three Kingdoms, in my opinion is really not a fun game.

I'm really looking forward to this game.

According to old lore they have a colony there
A colony is not enough for the main faction, is it? You can put two LLs in one colony.
the third game will include a bit of the old world
Map ending right on the World Edge Mountains makes perfect sense because it's a natural border so it will look good.

well the Shogunate forced everyone to hand their machlocks back in and had them locked away or destroyed, so most Samurai no longer carried firearms, they only had their swords or spears and bows. Hence Bushido doesn't mention firearms, and no 'tanegashima-do' ever developed.

Not only this, but CA really should have better graphics options for the campaign map so I can turn it off

battles run fine on ultra textures and high unit detail with 8k troops
campaigns shits itself on high settings the moment I enable AA
You should be able to turn of fog, smoke, waves, animals, winds of magic and so on. It eats performance and makes the map feel incredibly busy

DeathDog

I'm still not sure what CA is doing. Aren't they spreading themselves too much? How many titles are they even working on right now? 3? 4? Mortal Empires was delayed, arrived in the half-baked state with barely any reworks for the old factions, while fucking Norsca got delayed to a fucking May. It's worrying that we already see serious logistical issues in their workflow.

And more importantly, TW are niche games. And fanbase is small. Aren't we going to have a TW overload? People already playing Warhammer, and are going continue playing due to DLC content almost every month or two and eventual WH3. And we get Thrones of Britannia somewhere in first half of 2018, with Three Kingdoms, a major title releasing somewhere in Autumn. Are they expecting their fanbase to fork out shekels every month? Btw, I'm pretty sure Thrones of Britannia totally got assassinated by their own hype machine.

Not quite.

But the moment she sees you with your pretty wife Ms. Warhammer, the cashier you smiled at two years ago, she falls back into her habits, starts stalking you and eventually kills herself.

End story.

they produce games like thrones of britannia pretty damn cheaply, if you recall the charlememes joke they claimed the entire dlc cost as much as it would to animate one warhammer monster. They've also had a lot of production time, for a first look that three kingdoms trailer looked fairly developed. Their main issue will be making a new historical as compelling as warhammer and living up to that standard of unit and campaign diversity.

Thats a dope game but sadly it bored me after i finished my Confederate and Union campaing.

Sadly there was a glich after the update that introduced the battle of Gettysburg i think that made my Confederate campaing much harder because i lost all my general points and it made it much harder than it would have been. Sadly i "lost" the final battle because i was outnumbered literally 5 to 1 or something insane and even tho i won all major battle except 1-2 draws i somehow lost the entire war... Union campaing was a walk in the park for me.

But no, your "history campaign" is a ms frizzle's summary of history. CA doesn't make awesome campigns, they make cool battles for vidya. They have a retards grasp of 4X.

Get used to it.

Dumb histfag still doesn't understand that Three Kingdoms is fantasy, and not historical

haveahappyday

@King_Martha
To be fair, the other problem is that the Three Kingdoms is not based on the Records of the Grand Historian, which would make it historical. It is based on the Romance of the Three Kingdoms, which is a fantasy propaganda novel. It would be like basing the Vikings around AD 1000 on their descriptions in the Vinlandsaga or basing Vedic Indian armies off Mahabharata. They're not wrong that it isn't historical, it's based off a historical fantasy novel.

Stark_Naked

@WebTool
also the halberd (green dragon crescent blade or guandao) is like excalibur in terms of it's legendary status. Liu Bei supposedly traded shoes with a mechant who had worse shoes in exchange for the iron to make it and a local blacksmith forged it based on advice from Guan Yu. It is thought to be one of the first Guandao ever made. Supposedly the blade was so cold all the time that blood would condense on the blade in battle.

Soft_member

@haveahappyday
no total wars are historical, they have fictional campaign positions and territories and the events are self contained within the constraints of the ai and game mechanics irregardless of the history up until and after the period they are set in. The setting of Romance of the three kingdoms isn't fictional and that's all the game is using, the setting i.e characters and locations. The only 'fiction' will be the heroes but overpowered generals have always been in total war and so have agents. Total war doesn't really have a way to approximate duels, which we know happened regularly between champions in the army. Also Romance of the three Kingdoms is not propaganda anymore than Macbeth or the Iliad is.

@Soft_member

I mean general bodyguards isn't a problem though. It's true that the honor guard of a general were basically the crack troops of the entire army, and sending out the honor guard was risky but could melt through the peasant hordes comprising the rest of the army.

Raving_Cute

That's legendary. The Guandao was never a thing until around 500 years after the events, same with the Houtengeki.

This is what I don't get. Almost everyone seems to universally complain about Total War naval battles so they just autoresolve. When CA realizes this, saves the time working on it by just making them autoresolve people are pissed.

No dude.

I think most people thought the idea of Naval battles where cool, but it could be done better. That is where I agree with history fans, they just want their games done better.

But in reality, that is where developers make the same mistakes if they constantly reiterate.

Honestly I prefer Napoleon since it seems less cheesy. It was more about the positioning of the ships rather than overwhelming firepower, really had far more emphasis on formations and all that; making sure to try to cross Ts, minimize the cannons they can bring to bear whilst maximizing yours, etc.

Only plebs complain about naval battles, I thoroughly enjoyed them in all the games they’re present in, even shogun 2. I very much enjoyed sailing my ships of the line around and having big decisive naval battles over trading nodes and strategic chokepoints like Gibraltar. The best part was that I sucked at it st first which inspired me to actually study naval warfare and learn how it’s done, and to my welcome surprise real tactics were actually the key to winning which is far more than the land battles could ever hope to replicate.
