Fruity, wiser-than-thou faggots like you who claim to espouse respect for the opinion of all while being unable to espouse the same supposed respect for the opinion of your fellow countrymen, simply because their opinion actually have an actual effect on your daily life, rather than being a ''problem'' so far away from you you can safely spout out your opinion without any on ground knowledge of the situation and yet, appear wise on the subject. Its too easy to judge from afar. I mean to judge a culture on the food its produce is utterly idiotic, its like saying the important stuff is the food brought by it, not the entire fucking world that surround said food and give it purpose in the first place.

Basically, you're an intellectual coward that use dishonest, prefabricated retorts and rhetoric instead of genuine arguments.

Just stop pretending you're open minded, admit you're close minded (which, contrary to what is being thrown around as fact as of late, is an entirely acceptable way of seeing thing. Not everybody has to be an open book you know?) and take pride in the things you genuinely believe are worthy of such.

Technically Skaven could be good.

Okay I'm nearing realm divide on my Takeda campaign and I'm not sure which of my allies to betray first.

Hojo are split on either side of me, which means a war on two fronts, but also means they're divided, so I could potentially conquer them very quickly and take Izu for massive dosh.

Date are to one side of me and it would only take conquering 3 provinces to reduce the war down to 2 passes.

Attacking one of them could well lead to the other one betraying me though, which I'm a bit worried about.

CA's PR fucked up massively after people were pissed at the pricing of the Beastmen DLC/the fact that it wasn't even complete - they released a response where they said that modelling and animating a Jabberslythe would have cost as much as it did for them to make all of the artwork for Age of Charlemagne.

no doubt in my mind that warpfire throwers will be irondrakes, but ratling gunners are a little different since they have automatic guns which might be totally overpowered in units of 25. Just think every 3 seconds that unit has shot more bullets than 4 units of handgunners in 30 seconds.

Also, Dawi are cunts. I feel nothing for them. They always win the BadlandsBowl and become annoying cunts. They don't fight chaos, but only once you've done all the work they stream out of their mountain holds with 10 armies of Ironbreakers and Slayers and massive amounts of artillery and are a bitch to remove.

If they had hard times vs orks and we fought together, a bond could be formed. But the AI as it is now ignores Archeon, so I gotta do it my self unless I am Ork/Dawi. Then I get the "help" of those in the way. And when Age of Peace hits, I trust Asrai more than Dawi.

That makes 8 factions, while they stated previously that the 16 Warhammer races will be featured during the trilogy

Skaven are obviously going to appeal to a vast swathe of people. much more so than Empire, Bretonnia or fantastical races like elves. They have steampunk elements, they are rat-men and they are the go-to evil genius race. Without them a lot of people wouldn't bother buying this sequel.

Depends on the game. Shogun 2 for instance, has really tight food requirements. Rome 2 has pretty loose ones. And they're absent from Warhammer completely.

For Warhammer I've found it's best to prioritize growth, until all your settlements are at least level 3, then switch to income/support/recruitment as needed.

Someone said to build a gate on every single town I have is that really necessary?

Yes. That settlement you think is safe nestled deeply inside your territory? Some will come for it. And they will loot the shit out of it if you're lucky. Walls are an absolute necessity for minor settlements.

Assuming WH, I usually go

growth first so you can upgrade your main chain and build walls, and then money where you need it. Ofc this isn't an exact build order for every town, but its what I usually do. Walls are a necessity in Warhammer because minor settlements act as field battles/have smaller garrisons, and the AI will automatically beeline for any unwalled settlements no matter where they are located

Relationships with other factions don't need to be good, just above neutral should be fine. The idea is to be a 3rd party faction that does not get deep into any affairs but can get involved enough to change the outcome, so endgame goal can be anything other than world domination/eradication or eliminating specific factions.
Bands of mercenary can act like agent unit that will not cause any penalties when moves into foreign lands, then can be set up for hire and will generate incomes as long as they are parts of any army. Battle resolve should be reworked and make Orge soldiers be the first to suffer casualties, so players have to constantly replace them with new units. Basically bring back mercenary hiring from previous games and make it a gameplay mechanic

it affects melee stats, morale and accuracy(if applicable)
On most units it's just a little boost.
On really shit units it can be as good as + 20-30% quality increase.

It's most important on artillery, particularly lobbing artillery.
Use the no lords in custom battles mod and put up a rank 0 rock lobber against a 9 chevron one and see what happens.

Note that regiments of renown have max chevrons, for everything but ranged units the bonuses are embedded, but the accuracy bonus is still there, so a hammer of the witches is as accurate as a 9 chevron great cannon and so on.

And so began the saga of how, goaded on and provoked by Nagash's dark whispers, Azhag the Slaughterer...well, slaughtered his orcs, recruited all the goblins from Black Crag, and set forth to conquer the world. No one knew how far Azhag would pillage and raid, and none, not even the Slaughterer, were aware of the horrifying and sinister plans Nagash held for the Old World.

Install a mod that makes the initial Chaos Invasion a measly two-three full stacks who basically soften up the Southern lands
The real invasion is Kholek, Sigvald, Sathorael, Archaon, two Chaos Lords, and three Beastmen Warherds
Playing as Greenskins
the Waaaghs Grimgor, Azhag, Wurrzagh, Skarsnik, two rando Gobbo Warbosses and two rando Orc Warbosses
three theaters of war
Mount Gunbad has Azhag and Wurrzagh vs two Beastmen,a Chaos lord, and Kholek
the foothills of Zhufbar has my two rando Orc Warbosses and one of my Gobbo armies vs a beastmen horde, Chaos Lord, and Sathorael
Archaon, and Sigvald vs Grimgor, Skarsnik, in Blackfire Pass

God that was amazing compared to how Chaos invasions go on for fucking ever until you clean up every single stack at once. That was three epic battles in a row. Grimgor solo'd Archaon, a Shaggoth, and Sigvald. Azhag had a pretty intense battle with a Manticore, and my Orc Warbosses duked it out with a Chaos Dragon.

If WHFB had gotten the same support 40k got, chances are it would have sold better.
As it is, its slow-as-fuck release schedule and rules encouraging large (=more expansive) armies meant few new players were coming in and the old guard didn't buy much new stuff, since they already got what they needed for their own armies and getting a new army big enough to play was expansive as all hell.

Fire is just another modifier that doesn't really play in with physical or magical resistance.

Fucking Hiroshima ate my post once, fuck. Time to type this trash out a second time.

You're wrong.

I thought you would be right but it turns out we weren't.

It isn't as simple as 3 > 1.4(-40% fire damage taken) AP damage, at 80 armor obviously non-ap is still represented to a noteworthy degree.

Fire arrows demolish the competition here. Tested with Bretonnian archers.
Standard peasant archers have the same damage values as pox arrows, but I tested both in the end.

Battle conditions were stand still and take fire until the enemy reaches low enough ammo that the battle bar scares them away.
Fire arrow's performance is over-represented due to the battle bar, but as it's simply a test of which is better rather than recording refined DPS, killing more and faster than the others is obviously a clear win.

Left is vanilla peasant archers.
Centre is fire arrows.
Right is pox arrows.

Indeed.

Just do it. If worst comes to worst you end up with fuckall settlements. At that point it simply becomes a standard TW game of get big again.

Well, I never made it to the point of having flowcharts of cost efficiency, so I didn't realize I was having fun the wrong way, but I guess you could do pretty much the same thing with Reiksguard or Blazing Sun knights (The Demigryphs are only really there to ward of flankers; the handgunners do most of the killing).

Why cant ranged units fights in melee? What is it about having a bow or a gun that turns a soldier into a frail sissy? Wouldn't even mind double unit cost.

Less training in melee combat or worse equipment. Dwarf ranged units can hold their own in melee.

Yeah I was still rolling with the assumption that armour was reducing min 50% and max 100% of it's value.

I guess it's just a 0-100% roll with a ~75% average. That certainly accounts for the damage goblin archers and bret peasants do

I'm not trying to be a fun goblin. Of course Handgunners do the most damage, demigryphs do more damage more quickly to more important targets. I'm just saying that any demigryph presence at all kinda kicks the Empire 'masters of none' motif right in the teeth.

I avoid using them entirely in my Empire games.

I do play similarly to you as Empire though. Gotta stick a helblaster into your army though. Most fun Empire unit by far. obliterates stuntieshits and Archyboy. Generally solid performance against all else as well.

The commentary on cost-efficiency is mostly just me taking an opportunity to grumble about multiplayer balance.
Though it can roll over and hurt fluff as well sometimes, but the only example I can think of is Bretonnian squires fucking up fluff and balance at the same time.

skirmishers especially value mobility. melee armor and armament slows them down so they take the bare minimum generally. With the bare minimum equipment, it makes sense to skimp on training as well.
Stunties are the exception here.

And that isn't jay, that's eminem. You can't trick me about the identity of my close personal friend.

Maybe not Mazdamundi, he's the most lucid and awake of the Slann. Though there could be a hyperactive Skink scribe riding his palanquin with him.

It'd be more pertinent for other Slann and would be a good way of distinguishing them.

Would also make sense for Kroak and he's basically just a spellcasting ICBM platform with skinks moving him around.

layered defenses
Why subtract from the forces on the wall to create a subpar "layer" further in? The wall is your strongest point and is only effective when manned

no units pushing out the gates to skirmish
any ranged unit that can go on the wall is better suited there, and your towers already have infinite range, and will do more damage than any one unit could outside the wall

no falling back and re-establishing
why would you intentionally cede the walls to the enemy ever?

You're wrong about the fire resist, I just tested it.

The difference between fire arrows and regular arrows on cairn wraiths is about what you'd expect going from 20 to 25 missile damage, not all of a sudden punching through that 80% physical resist.

not true, naval battles were popular as fuck in Napoleon total war. Fantasy naval battles also have a lot of scope since there's broadsides, flyers, ironclads, ramming, boarding and gigantic craft and some factions like dark elves are navy-centric.

Manowar and Mordheim were both entirely in-house.

There were some issues early on with stuff like Malal and Kaleb Daark due to the contracts they signed, but both of those games were designed well after that situation.

Sir_Gallonhead
Sir_Gallonhead

exclusively
Lets see proof of that.

As far as I know the contract only states that you cant sell rights to produce similar games as to not conflict one another.
Man'o'War:Corsair is action-adventure.
Total War is tactics.
They play absolutely differently.

Just look at Mordheim and Vermintide. They use the same license and are produced simultaneously. Neither of them has "exclusive rights" like you claim.

they don't have full rights to either in any case. Ask their employees yourself.

Your problem is that you probably didn't play them enough, or didn't read up on naval tactics. There's quite a lot of depth and skill involved, and it's deeply satisfying to outmaneuver a superior force with smaller but faster ships etc. It takes some getting used to with how much longer your forces take to respond, but that also makes every move you make that much more important, because you can't undo it like you often can on land. This only applies to gunpowder though, you're quite right about melee and arrow naval.

Supergrass

If that's the case, why are they able to license the video games?

I'm fairly familiar with GW's history, and I've never heard of them not owning the rights to those games.
