it'd be cool if they made them hero / large unit snipers that do high damage at long range but have a low (30 or so) unit size. they already have ranged units for every other occasion. I wonder how they'll implement ratling gunners.

I'm hoping they're basically unit of handgunners with no range and a tiny unit count. So all the dakka of a unit of handgunners concentrated from 1/8 the models. oh and occasionally some explode.

Jezzails won't shift the ratto's meta too bad, considering their strength has always been in their artillery. Now, they have ranged artillery that is focused on infantry-sized single entity units. No doubt they will be uber expensive, low unit count, and can't handle a melee fight against a wet noodle.

Rattling-Gunners to me feel like they will be the replacement for the Flamethrower unit but with armor-piercing damage, higher reload rate, more ammo, and just as much armor as the rest of the weapons teams.

So maybe handgunners on the flanks and outriders in the middle? What about the grenade outriders? Should I drop my ranged infantry units from 5 to 4 and add a rocket or cannon? Should I replace my mortars?

Yeah, the reiksguard were pretty impressive when I was killing the vampires. A reiksguard charge doesn't deal the consistent damage of the handgunners, but it probably knocked their morale bar down by 40%.

Still sounds way too big for a jezzail unit - you used to bring them in incredibly small units - 10-12 sounds more than reasonable, if that.

veekyforums.com/thread/208394170/video-games
Hey a reasonable reply. I never said there weren't options from the system but it's no more options than in previous titles so it doesn't add agency. Sure you always have the base decisions that have been present in sieging; however, the notion that it improved the agency is wrong because it just shifted the parameters.

Rome 2 was a highly defensive oriented game so the burden was on attackers in the form of heavier attrition and more difficult sieges, that script is simply flipped in Attila and with the escalation being automatic, I have no control over the destruction as opposed to if I assaulted the city with siege weapons manually after an extended siege in Rome 2.

So for these examples lets assume I have besieged a town for a couple turns and for whatever multitude of reasons I can't afford to wait it out. Say I want to starve out a town but deal as little damage to its buildings and garrison as possible so I don't have to repair it or take a big population hit; can't do that in Attila. Damage to settlement is hardcoded. No decision there. Say I wanted to target specific buildings with damage so that if the enemy retakes it they have to rebuild but they were buildings I was going to convert anyway so not that big of a setback for me. I can't do that. Damage is already predetermined and hardcoded. Say I wanted to target mainly their garrison with the artillery rather than the buildings so I can assault the city more easily. Can't do that either. Say I want specific entry-points. I can do that in Attila but the siege escalation system doesn't aid that in any way. The only decision altered in Attila is the new parameters by which the player determines whether to siege or not. The rest: siege equipment construction, hold out turns, and reinforcing armies are all from past games.

In Rome 2, if I wanted to I could do all the things mentioned after encircling a town for several turns and doing a manual siege. It'd take for fucking ever but I could...

veekyforums.com/thread/208394170/video-games
Now how could they improve this. Depends how involved they want to get. You could do something like a bombard option while besieging that gives you autoresolve-esque options: target defenses, target garrison, target buildings, general bombardment. Alternatively you could choose not to bombard.

If CA wanted to go deeper you could have the bombard options for buildings and garrison give you the ability to target certain units/buildings and allow the player the choice to focus more on raw damage or start fires (with their morale and wipespread damage effects).

If CA wanted to go even deeper they could supply all that and an option to do a manual bombardment which allows you to take the field and do all this manually in case you want to try to push into the city for some skirmishing fights and ending the fight does not cause a defeat that autoresolves losses onto your units.

All of these add agency and decisions without having to spend 50+ minutes on a siege emptying your artillery's ammo. Automatic predetermined damage from encircling that you have no control over does not. Furthermore, it actually removes options since whatever bonus it adds you can get from manually initiating a siege with artillery anyway. You may say "but I can do damage without dragging around artillery" and you would be right, but then that's removing agency from you when you're deciding on the value of taking the extra turns to transport artillery to the settlement for bombardment.

Attila's siege escalation does a good job at streamlining what is the simplest, and occasionally the correct, solution to these scenarios but just as the new setup for auto trade agreements in ToB don't mistake that simplicity for the system giving you more options.

Harmless_Venom

You can see what they're going for with warpfire throwers - they're mass infantry spraying units.

Jezzails shouldn't be delivering that kinda spray unless they're made into something they're not supposed to be.

Pretty sure jezzail units used to be incredibly small on the tabletop too, 3-5 rings bells. Warpfire thrower units, not that you ever used them as units over attachments, used to be portrayed as larger if memory serves - though I don't have my 4th edition book at hand and I think GW stopped pretending WFT were anything other than unit attachments after that.

honestly I hope they do make them a tiny unit but powerful enough to bring down big guys and heroes. I said in one of my previous posts they already have every other avenue covered as far as ranged units go, all they need now is a sniper unit for tough targets.

Yup, should be specialised to be anti-large and anti-flying. Not sure how I feel about them being anti-character, it's fitting but feels like it's a dangerous route to go down considering how broken character sniping can be and skaven are already absurdly strong against characters as is.

Small unit of 5-10 seems fitting. Well, double that if you want to count the fuck holding the stick / shield.

Rome 2 SHOULD have been the best of them but I duno if it was rushed or what but it was NOT good when I played it, admitedly that's been a while, god knows if it's been modded into a game by now.

Shogun 2 is just fucking great though - the factions are obviously super similar since it's purely in Japan, but fuck ME did they nail the atmosphere and the stuff that is there is solid, I've sank more time into that than any other TW and still go back to it every few months.

To fair, precision artilery didn’t really exist in those days, and siege that ended in a assault would become an orgy of violence and looting within the city, and even if generals tried to stop it, unless they were really respected and the troops disciplined and loyal, they would just laugh at his face and do it anyway. It also might have a balance factor, since siege weapons are rarer and heavier siege equipment is locked by tech.

If you're new to a franchise, you should start with [anything other than the best entry in the franchise, for any reason other than that there's a continuing story and the beginning of this story is not the best]

I'll never understand this.

difficulty/complexity

This isn't a case of trying to write custom firmware for your router when you don't know how to get "hello world" to appear on a console. This is a videogame that's intended to be picked up and played by anyone who happens to buy it. Give them the game that will blow them away.

hasn't aged well

This can either mean that you think that the other person is a pleb who cares more about a shiny coat of paint than a good car, or that the game plays like shit and is only your favorite due to nostalgia. If it's the former, casuals need to fuck off, and if it's the latter, then it was always mediocre. Good game design is eternal.

Apart from what I already mentioned above, the only thing that would cause me to give a different recommendation to a beginner in an entertainment series/medium is the knowledge that they haven't gone through the big shining core works that every potential fan ought to go through.

How the fuck do you beat others as the Empire in Total war Warhammer.

Swordsman/spearmanii fall like chaff to fucking everything and route fast.
Handgunners take so many volleys to even put the hurt on any unit they fight, especially ones I need them to hurt when I have them on the flank.
My Arty never seems to weaken my enemy enough to make them manageable. (Great cannons doing jack shit against giants, and Hellblasters not hurting armored enough to lower their numbers before the big fight.)
Every battle I do with AI and players devolves into huge mob fights where I get routed almost instantly.
Greatswords are way to expensive and end up getting beat the fuck out by cheaper units.
People catch up to my Demigryphons on flank and practically rip them apart with other units.

Like holy fuck how am I supposed to use my (((Versatility))) to save humanity when everyone else can use actually good units to wipe the floor with everything I have. What am I doing wrong? How in the fuck can I get good and kill these fucks in the name of Franz?

Poor dumb noob. Understand that army builds matter a lot and especially against different factions.
Swordsman/spearmanii fall like chaff to fucking everything and route fast.
Yes, the low-tier infantry is just there to soak damage, they will not hold the line without buffs, because they're not meant to.
Handgunners take so many volleys to even put the hurt on any unit they fight, especially ones I need them to hurt when I have them on the flank.
Use handgunners against heavy infantry like Black Orcs and crossbows against lighter infantry.
My Arty never seems to weaken my enemy enough to make them manageable.
Your artillery is never going to do that, they need to keep firing and use all their ammo, this is why the sunmaker is so well-liked.
Greatswords are way to expensive and end up getting beat the fuck out by cheaper units.
Why are you using greatswords? Do not use them.
People catch up to my Demigryphons on flank and practically rip them apart with other units.
Demigrpyhs are there to fight other large units, only use halberd variant. Use regular cavalry to inflict big damage on enemy infantry and hammer and anvil.

Here's an example army build.
1 General + 1 Bright Wizard. Use the Bright Wizard to net enemy troops and get free shots in.
4 Swordsmen + 3 Spearmen frontline and 2 Dmeigrpyhs + 2 Empire Knights on the flanks. Use Demigryphs to beat up enemy cav/monsters and use empire knights to rear charge their frontline infantry.

Legio III Parthica, fitting to their name, catches the Sassanids mustering outside of their capital Ctesiphon, pulling the city's garrison in a combat as they try to save their forces outside of the city

Soon after Flavius Caesarius' Legio V Cyrenaica enters the defenseless city, and ransacks the Sassanid capital, despite the fact that III Parthica did all of the fighting to take the city. This earns Caesarius the disdain of Parthica's general, the stoic but well respected Flavius Atellus, and serves as a black spot on his reputation amongst the elite back in Constantinople

You didn’t make the claim that agency remained static. You made the claim that agency took a step backwards and you never defended that claim and now you’re totally backpedaling fucking hours later passive aggressively replying to somebody else trying to just say “oh it doesn’t add agency” when I quoted you claiming otherwise, again ignored. You’re truly a goalpost-shifting strawmanning weasel. You’ve changed the perimeters of your discussion and the goals have shifted so much that you’d rather spend literally hours typing convoluted bullshit than actually admitting you were wrong or just not posing about it.

Different guy here. I'm currently mass-replacing my swordsmen with greatswords (and spears with halberds). I can afford it while keeping my budget at 10k+/turn due to having prioritized economic buildings and trade. Why wouldn't I want this?

King_Martha
King_Martha

All of this is present in fall of the samurai but only because precision bombardment exists. None of it is particularly relevant since the AI is unaffected by targets to their economy since they get free money anyway, it’s all just a lot of words to describe essentially convoluted versions of old features that don’t particularly add any “agency’s but merely adds manual steps in the process of achieving a goal that really shouldn’t be the focus of the gameplay anyway. Minor raids or skirmishes would be a nightmare to deal with globally across a map for a developer, you’re asking for all sorts of complicated features that achieve essentially what you can already do with agents or fleets in FOTS, all to cover that you started this conversation claiming that siege escalation removes agency and then it became “well it doesn’t ADD agency” and then you thought about it for a while and thought, “well muh repair costs because I was starving out so many settlements in Rome 2” like it was actually a relevant feature and you’re not just desperately clinging for anything to prove your initially absurd claim.

gs/halberds get fucked by any sort of missile fire, and gs will also get rekt by any sort of monster/cav charge - going with halberds (vs factions like chaos and vamps with no missiles) or spears gives you a cheaper frontline that can be buffed up by honest steel that can also withstand charges and anvil better than greatswords

The "versatility" is a meme. Empire has cav/tank over dwarfs, but everything else dwarves have is equal or better.
heavier armoured infantry that does more damage and can hold a line much better
rifles that not only have MUCH better armour but have fucking shields
useful support from runelords/engineers that have great abilities that don't rely on a finite mana pool
dynamic red tree that buffs your army into god mode late game

Empire is the most boring campaign ever. Hope you're cool spamming tanks and demis because when chaos shows up you'll get BTFO by even their mid game units. Glad I'm not the only one to acknowledge the Empire has a totally fucking ass late game

FotS sea battles are fun at first, but fighting each and every last sea battle gets old really quick.

entire fleet of iron ships
three puny little enemy ships that'll get shredded in seconds the moment that your ships get into range, with basically no damage done to your fleet; a complete non-threat if there ever was a such a thing
auto-resolve
one ship sunk and two more heavily damaged
there are several little enemy fleets moving around that ought to be dealt with in a single turn

The auto resolve needed to be far more generous. From my testing, you can auto-resolve against one enemy ship just fine, but if there are two or more, you absolutely need to fight the battle manually. It's like forcing the player to manually fight those two spear levy units that are trying to damage your buildings if the CPU liked sending five such armies into your territory on every turn.

Pull through, pathfinding, and collision is all different (some say worse for M2 than Rome) between games. Then obviously all the campaign changes determine what is moddable and what isn't. So if you like Rome 1's campaign better then EB is better fit. M2 obviously looks better and EB2 is in a slump right now with development though my understanding is it's all playable.

Friendly reminder that if you buy TOB you are part of the reason TW goes into the shitter, especially historical TW games.
They charge you 40 bucks for a few nice campaign alterations but the animations, the sounds, a lot of the models and all the ground work of the game is based upon a game that is now almost 5 years old.

If TOB is successfull you can be sure to be fed with Rome II spinoffs with the same stupid charge animations an horzontal aiming but vertical shooting bowmen until the end of time.

fuck off, it isn't even the unit cards that are bad, but the fact that they wasted the time and charlemagnes getting period style art for unit cards, emblems, buildings and techs and decided to pair it with an awful black/blue modern theme. The worst part is they probably only did it to make the game look different than attila so people didn't catch on to the fact that they paid 40 bucks for Age of Charlemagne 1.2.

This.

Thrones of Soymanni seems to be aimed at anoraks who are interested in campaign mechanics and roleplaying and shieet, and possibly as a safer why of testing out new mechanics than risking fucking something up with a mainline game like Warhammer or ThreeKangzdoms.

It's the complete opposite of a game like Warhammer where they were literally marketing it as "'frikkin DINOSAURS riding DINOSAURS so epiC1!!!".

It'll probably be boring as fuck and the new mechanics will just be modder-tier autism checks on the player which the AI cheats through. Still, there needs to be SOME part of CA actually working on improving the TW campaign experience going forward rather than just throwing scripted stack spam or arbitrary debuffs for the human player.

After several early losses to the Huns in Dacia/Dardania, my war against the huns reached a stalemate once reinforcements from the Sassanid campaign in the east made it back to the west and I waited for attila to run out of spare lives

Arcadius' strategy of "Fortress Dacia" worked. The key elements of it being
Fortified border towns
Larger garrisons and walls meant that any times the huns wanted to attack a settlement, they had to spend time besieging it, allowing reinforcements to arrive using the
Road systems
Exempting the province from taxation allows you to max out the main settlement chains, which gives you massive road development, allowing armies to move around faster - this meant I was able to get enough armies to problematic locations to overwhelm any large concentration of huns. It also meant damaged armies could quickly relocate south so they could replenish without being stopped by the "death" trait
Military province
Turning dacia into a military province meant that any losses suffered from battle with the huns were quickly replenished or replaced

Eventually Attila was hunted down and slain, and the rest of the hunnic hordes caught and destroyed one by one until they were no more

as a safer why of testing out new mechanics than risking fucking something up with a mainline game like Warhammer or ThreeKangzdoms.

I hope they port some of the ideas over to Warhammer and future titles. Either way I really want Warhammer to focus more on its RPG-parts to make it more different from other total wars. More customization when it comes to characters(with proper visuals) would be great. Have more random event chains that end in all sorts of things(battles, discovering a resource and so on). Basically do the "different total wars for different things"

ERE is basically an easier WRE, but people still get caught thinking it will be babbymode when you have to put up with sissynids and huns before the interest can kick in and make all of your problems go away

I'd say sassanidsare easier, you have the best starting position in the game and nothing can touch you once the white huns are gone - from there you can easily align yourself with the huns through mutual hatred of the greeks and steamroll anybody

this is the big problem with the system, ai cheats and won't give a fuck that you took all of their little villages. Its also going to be a pain in the ass for the player to defend them because you can't separate units from armies w/o a general, and the insta recruitment means the ai will probably have a boner for getting a couple of quarter strength spears and taking all of your shit bc lol no garrisons

It is pretty strict, but modders keeps "unlocking" smaller stuff that make for very neat mods. The rather large amount of modders for that game is the reason for that. I wish Attila had a bigger modding community/enthusiasm. I guess it is because people don't know/didn't know the game existed. This has caused a lot of mods that fix things in the game not being updated or never being made in the first place. At least the bigger mods are slowly coming along.

It's still limited to whatever is made available through the game_interface table in the the Lua scripting environment. You don't even get proper access to the DB, so if you want to do a basic task like enumerate all the available units for a given faction you're shit out of luck. This is part of what makes support between mods tricky.

The absolute No.1 problem with Warhamemr is that modders can't extract models to give them bigger tits and put them back into the game. They can only fuck about mixing-and-matching in-game models and props (without the aid of the old variantmesh viewer), which is why most of the "new" models modders implement into the game are trash (except for simple skin/texture work).

You can barely do anything to it, but that's been an issue for years, when Warscape and the attached middleware (which CA claims prevent them from distributing editing tools) were introduced.

The difference with Warhammer is that due to legal issues with Games Workshop they had to fight tooth and nail to permit any level of modding at all, let alone stuff like importing/exporting models. Normally I would call them filthy liars but in this case it's pretty obvious GW would be concerned about licencing a strategy game that modders would immediately replace with Warcraft characters.

After the war with the huns was over, the emperor decided to finally invest into the economy and infrastructure of the empire, as lengthy wars with the Sassanids and Huns had left little capital for investing into the economy. During the last war with the huns, Arcadius had even been forced to rise the level of taxation across the empire to fund the armies needed to defend the empire from the nomadic hordes.

Veterans of the Sassanid/Hunnic campaigns were settled in lands in the east that had been left bare by White Hunnic incursions in the past, and money was poured into the economy of key mercantile coastal provinces like libya, cilicia, and Macedonia - an effort which is still ongoing

With the successful release of Desert Kingdoms and Empire Divided, ROME II has come a long way, but there’s more action and free content to come yet. One big win has been the reduction of players who have problems with mods crashing their game, by creating roll back builds for those who want to use older mods, and the new mod filter for those that want to play new content without forgetting old mods may still be enabled and might cause issues.

We’ve also looked at all of the fan feedback from Empire Divided through to Desert Kingdoms and feel we have a good understanding of things we need to address in the next content release for ROME II. We plan to line this up with the next campaign pack that we feel will be a fresh take on campaign packs for ROME II as well as a very exciting feature for the Free-LC that will release alongside it.

The main problem is that the liberated factions uses your alliance to amplify their faction strength so they will be more likely to attack other factions that are initially at the same strength as them. There is a mod that makes all liberated factions vassals. This will at least prevent the problem I described.

StrangeWizard

Meh, in my experience vassals are a liability too because other factions - even allies - don't seem to care about your relationship with them. I've been in quite a few situations where a close ally would force me into a war by declaring war on my vassal.

At a triumph in the capital for the (now deceased) general Flavius Cordius Atellus, the man who killed Attila, the emperor outlined his plans for the future of the empire to his best generals and advisors. Following a period of economic growth and expansion and army standardization, and the the creation of a proper mediterranean fleet, the Empire would turn its eyes to the west, to the lands where their western bretheren once ruled

The emperor made it clear that he viewed these lands as property belonging to the Roman Empire, and that at some point in the future there would be a campaign to reclaim the territory lost to the barbarians of the west

thank god for that, we don't meme dlc to ruin this game. The only relevant female is Mavia

Unit sizes for melee troops are consistent with past TW's at 160. Infantry bodyguards can go up to 200 in size if a general has 10 command. Missile units have 80 men as we've got them in a looser formation by default and larger than that they become a bit unwieldy. Cavalry are 60 men, a little smaller but again they're spacing has changed to help emphasis the role we have for them on the battlefield.

Über die feindlichen Linien fegt eine Wolke aus Flammen und Asche hinweg. So muss das Ende der Welt aussehen. Mir tun die armen Tommys in ihren Gräben beinahe Leid, wie sie versuchen das alles zu verstehen.

literally the next fucking day this fucking pathetic loser that never admits he's wrong is back
I literally gave examples of scenarios that were possible in Rome 2 and not in Attila.
you came up with, after literally hours of thinking about it because you're a pathetic piece of shit that can never admit he's wrong, and you came back with some hypothetical scenario that literally never happened and you even admitted that you have literally never fucking done it and yet that's your argument for R2 having more "agency" than attila? These posts you made, this fucking 10,000 word chain of the most pathetic posts I've ever fucking seen, it just keeps getting more pathetic the longer you refuse to admit how undeniably wrong you were and how 99% of your posts are talking about the conversation instead of actually having it. You specifically ignored my posts in the last thread and responded to somebody else that would be easier because you know you couldn't address my fucking points you goddamn weasel. You gave no examples. You gave pathetic excuses that you literally took hours out of your life thinking about it just to prove a point you could of just ignored and moved on from.
And this is why the franchise is in the terrible shape it's in.
Literally the only fucking example you have given in literally thousands of words
is "hur dur in rome I don't have to damage the city during a long siege hur dur this is so much agency hur dur I saved money omg so much agency"
only in that same fucking sentence you admit you've literally never done that so it's literally completely irrelevant and even you admitted that and yet it's the only fucking thing, even after 2 days, that you can think of and it's so obviously just whatever the fuck you could imagine to not be wrong but only you can't see how pathetic that is from the outside to look at.
