Lizard Skaven DLC cancelled, as is the LizardlordInstead we'll be releasing a DLC to make Blood Knights, Lahmia, and the really ugly ghoul vampires playable, along with an FLC of Elspeth von Draken, who we're making a Vampire Count for obvious reasonsWarhammer 3 will introduce our own homebrew elf vampires, dwarf vampires, orc vampires, chaos vampires, and rat vampires.
we now return to your daily scheduled spooks
>>240646784Based vampire assembly, take my money
>>240646784A-are there any lizard vampires?
today CA : And if that’s got you ready to see some gameplay, we’ll be showcasing spies in the game next week – so keep checking our social media for news!
>>240646939No. Infact, we're going to nerf lizardmen, they're too strong. Jack got beaten by an army of them in the office today so they have definite balancing issues.
when is three chinkdoms coming out and how long after its release do I have to wait for warham news?
>>240647163Or just play EQ2 if you want rats that aren't definitively evil.
>>240647416warhams news might come, but actual content won't come for at least 5(five) months
>>240647609I bet queek has nice thighs
>>240647416march, likely a month
What did he mean by this
AAAAAAAHHHHHHTHE BLOOD RUNS COLD
>turn 144>realised strength rank 2 & 4 are unknown
>>240647609He's a very clean rat
>>240647163>>240647481Skaven are perfectly patable as they are.
Most interesting cheats for an ME empire playthrough? >Seeing as they'll never get updated

>>240649827>they'll never get updatedYou never know anon, with the high demand from the playerbase we may very well find them getting updated>in 2 years
>>240649921total war is for chumps, this is the age of total BENEVOLENCE
>>240649827they are 100% getting updated in 5 months when the rat/lizard dlc drops because the new empire knight lines leaked alongside the skaven ones, so you just have to be patient and endure the chinkshit til then
Will TW3K allow characters to debate enemies to death?
WE WILL NOW BE REPLACING TOTAL WAR WARHAMMER 3 WITH TOTAL WAR WARHAMMER 3 KINGDOMS.
You know what's better than 3 Kingdoms?medieval 2 Kingdoms
>>240649534reminds me of S2 cinematics it didn't have much going on it and the bgm is reminiscent of it
Is there a Total War game based around the Sengoku Jihad that includes the invasion of Korea and has Korea as a playable faction so you can turn around and slaughter the fucking nips
>>240650094what new empire knight linessource pls
>>240650094>5 months9 months after total gookhammer you mean
WAAAAAHH WE NEED MORE DLC
why the fuck do dwarfs existplease justify their stats and costs
>>240646939>>240647024I believe it.
Wutelgi a ho
>Empire gets reworked for no charge along with two new units>Lizards get literally any content at all and likely a removal of the uncontrollable army status for no charge>Vampires get nerfed and stop swallowing the entire fucking map since CA is too lazy to put more programmers on the AI to teach it how to deal with corruptionbut sure, its the DLC I want
WAAAAH MORE DLCSMORE FEMALE LORD PACKSMORE UNITS FOR MY GAY REDDIT FACTION
Anyone else member this meme?I stopped coming here after TWW2 came out since I had no money for it and dropped the series till now.Did we ever make more bears?
>>240650935>statsthey are a meme faction built entirely around ranged firepower that has no cav/magic>costthis implies that mp unit costs make sense, which they don't because ca doesn't actually use them to balance units as much as they should
>>240651945>sega boogeyman>ashilla>unit collisionwhere did the time go....
>2 shots your casterwhy is it always mplets who find a way to ruin something? Magic missiles will once again get nerfed into the ground because of this little fucker
>>240653545I don't follow MP or know much about it, but aren't greenskins hot fucking trash right now?What the fuck would nerfing them accomplish?
Why is there only 1 set of stats instead of having different stats for MP and SP?Holy fuck. The campaign is not meant to be "balanced". The whole point about TW campaigns is asymmetry.
>>240653693They're shit in campaign they're good in MP.Same happened with lizardmemes, now they got gutted beyond fucking belief.
So, Royal Pegasusfags are grailfags but the Royal Hippogryphfags aren't?
>>240653693I'm not a metafag but they are generally pretty ok as long as you pick wurrzag, you get near constant ma buffs off with his staff, a net w/ effigy, and waaagh as well. They are much better in mp than sp because units that are useless in sp like spider riders/archers are much more viableMy original post was specifically referring to vindictive glare, which is op as hell atm and goblin casters can fucking obliterate any character that is unarmored in just a couple of casts. Go watch some of turin's 2v2 streams when players pick greenskins to see what I'm talking about >>240653778theoretically there are 2 thanks to the presence of the mp-only unit costs, but CA is completely unwilling to actually use that to balance the 2 modes separately, so you end up with units/abilities/magic getting completely fucking gutted by mp centric changes
KINO IS BACK ON THE MENU BOYS, FANTASOY BLOWN THE FUCK OUT
Used the ol roll charts with random.org, 0-99. Looks like I'm playing a DeI suebi campaign. Any tips and tricks before I go apeshit on the suebian tribes?
>>240654832You mean the ahistorical, fantasy game that is based on a novel? Stupid fucking history fags. CA offers you shit and you slurp it up like the dumb cunts you are.
>>240654836You get very nice cavalry mercenaries in the Lugii province
>>240654836Do a migration to spain. To the northern part of where portugal is today.Jokes aside, I wish migration campaigns were viable in Rome 2.
>oh hey based brets rode out to aid one of my settlements that was under siege>not a single knightffs
>>240655025>Chopping my way through gaulshit all the way down to spainMight be quite the challenge, will save for late game or if things go to shit mid-late game
>>240655318This. Whoever gets banned here can go bitch about it on /tg/
This is a fantasy related post.History fans CANNOT CENSOR this post.
Neutral armies can declare war on you in the Vortex campaign?This fucking empire army wrecked all of my 4 armies at turn 40ish.
>>240655990I couldn't comprehend that webm.

>>240656312NO IT'S NOT FUCKING FAIR BROS
The Chaos Incursion should also spawn Skaven in Lustria and more WoC north of Naggarond.
is there a mod that makes hellebron look younger when the blood night event happens
>>240656817cool, thanks anon
>>240656312I don't even care so long as I get to burn down some chinese fuck huts.>implying there will be attila tier devastation mechanicsI hate nuCA.

>>240655070>not a single knightAre you blind?
>>240657650>there IS a single knightmy sides
>>240657650he isn't single, he is devoted to his wife
>>240657569As long as it delays your games, I don't fucking care. You can suffer for all I care
>>240655070I see three Grail Knights here.
>>240657898>deadBRETONNIA CONFIRMED VAMPIRE COUNT FACTION NEXT UPDATE
>>240657759I want to play as Hochland and be cozy
>>240657898Anon, I think the two knights in the middle of the list felt unwell and are off to a long travel to get cured
>>240658385That would have made a cool plot line in the End Times. Mallobaude raising all the Grail Reliquae as Wight Knights.
>>240657829you sound like a pleasant person
what total war can i go to that has a good number of online players
>>240657759>Lazy Recolors>No Miderland, Stirland or Nordland
>>240658669People still play Shogun 2. So anything from that to Warhammer 2.
>>240658669Total War: Arena
>>240658734gee I wonder which (((countess))) could be behind this image...
>>240658942People still play Rome 1 mp. Well at least one guy those. >>240659001Maybe it's based Elspeth not countess.
>>240654836stop using this image, faggotuse some much less horrible person, like Hitler or Chenghis Khan
>>240658608>>240658783Isn't that basically her deal?
>>240658608Mallobaude is not a necromancer, vampire or chaos worshiper. He is simply an alternative. One that could in the future be tainted by those above but it's not guaranteed.
welcome to hells
>>240656209Nothing to comprehend.
>>240658953I actually had fun playing that. You know, the first two or three games.
>>240659773I like it very much while it was still being developed by CA. Once they farmed it out, it went downhill fast.
>>240646784>Throws money at screenVAMPFUS FOR ALL!
>>240660213ESO keeps getting worse every time I look at a screenshot
>>240658669all the TW games have a very stable number of players
>>240660643That's Mordheim. Or did I not get the joke?
>>240654081Hippogryph Knights should be grailfags, I'm not sure why they aren't.
>>240646932Why doesn't CA just make a Vampire: The Masquerade game if they like Vamps so much?
>>240661591Because they already have Warhammer for that.
>>240661650>>240646932>>240646784>>240660213If CA actually liked vampires, they would have done new models and voice lines for the bloodline lords and given us more characters other than Von Carsteins.
>>240651091>I want the game, specifically LYZRYRDS, to be updated>but I don't want a lyzyrd DLC
>>240661839>vamps get new buildings in the grey mountains and a bloodline mechanic that makes them more unique than pretty much any other old world faction>also get vampires who sail around on boats instead of living in castles as a totally separate race>dorfs get a recycled TK mechanic>"CA DOESN'T REALLY LIKE VAMPS CUZ THEY DIDN'T GIVE THEM A FUCKING ROCKET SHIP THAT KILLS ALL THEIR ENEMIES AND MAKES MANNFRED TALLER THAN 5 FOOT 9"
>>240661839They like being lazy more than they like vampires.
>Amazons still not announced
>>240661871I just want Empire and Lizards to be fun again without using cheats
>>240661839All I really want for the vamps are the Abyssal Terrors to be added as a mount option.
>>240662189What cheats to make lizard campaign fun?
>>240662035>empire get uh lots of ways to build an army making them more unique than 2-3 cookie cutter army old world factions>also get knights who crusade around on horses instead of using guns as a totally separate race>vampires get a recycled attila mechanic>"CA IS SHOWING FAVORITISM TO VAMPIRES CUZ THEY UPDATE ONE OF THE MOST IGNORED RACES SINCE THE BACKLASH OF GRIM AND GRAVE AND LETS THEM HAVE MORE THAN ONE START POSITION EVEN IF THEY'RE RIGHT NEXT TO EACH OTHER"
>>240662570>>vampires get a recycled attila mechanicwhich one?
>>240662192If they were going to make the lord pack based on Sigmar's Blood anyway, I don't know why they didn't just make a smaller DLC for each bloodline that adds a respective lord, hero, and a couple units. Abyssal Terrors are associated with Necrarchs.
>>240662674bloodlines you retard
>>240663018so we cant talk about 3 kingdoms?
>>240662192Will be part of TWW3's NAGASH faction.
>>240663171What if they made Nagash a doomstack horde faction that Vamps/Kangs get a big bonus for defeating?
We got 3 kingdoms instead of ogre kingdoms.
>>240662570>ignored since GG>except when they got a whole new LL and start position (lol) when Bretonnia came out in 2017>>240662934>Attila has dynasties/family trees>this is the same as having unlockable vampire lords and bonuses/units integrated into the vampire campaign
>>240663319You mean like Archaon is for Wulfrik right now? In any case TWW3 will be chorfs, daemons, ogors and NAGASH. Daemons in the north, Nagash in the south, chorfs in the middle and ogors in the east. Kislev or dogs of snore will be DLC and set in the west of the map so that the whole map is filled out from the border of the great maw to the world's edge mountains and the wastes to the dragon isles.
>>240663171Nagash was all about those "Dread Abyssals" not the "Abyssal Terrors".Get it right.
>>240663352>delays your DLC
>>240663616>set in the westDogs of war can be in the east as well since they are used to guard caravans and sometimes even hired by Cathay,
>>240662934what the fuck
>>240663656CA doesn't care because the Nagash roster can't just be Morghasts supported by spear-skeletons
>>240664046Or can it?
>>240663812With all the recycled shit in ToB they probably only needed 5 guys + Jack to make it. 3K is absorbing all the resources.
Does based Goblin-poster still come here?
I did the impossible guys

>>240664686based. thanks for not posting fantasy. was playing med2 myself earlier and rome yesterday
WHERE THE FUCK ARE MY STORMFIENDS
>blackfire pass is THE strategic chokepoint protecting the empire from the greenskins and everything from the south>never ever actually fight battles in it because of akendorf to the south and the tunnel stance the greenskins have
>>240664914How about another
Post shamefur disprayHoly fuck I didn't expect this battle to go so wrong, autoresolve was like 90% in my favour.
>>240664686Med 2 units still sort of look good after all these years.
>>240665432Shoud have probably used Alarielle to distract some of those smelly beasts from your main line.
>>240665281p nice>>240665469they do. they dont look like plastic models that were introduced in empire tw and persist until today
>>240665953It was a river map and I picked the wrong crossing to send Alarielle in. She had the Sword.
>>240664849>2.5 years delayedAHHHHHHHH
>>240665469>>240665957I'm not sure if it's the lightning or maybe the increased detail, but I can't help but see the new models like a huge blob of blurry stuff rather than well defined soldiers like in medieval 2 and rome 1.Like, I don't even feel like watching the battle from up close in the newer games.
the improvement on lightning didnt do well to TW games. compare rome and med 2 to empire and shogun for example. in the first games everything looks a separate entity. it's soul vs soulless>>240666121that res tho
>>240665208Limiting underway to mountainous regions only would cost too many charlemagnes
>>240666425yes thats exactly what i think. was typing >>240666554 as you posted. i dont know how people can stand desu. i played all tw and theres nothing like pre-empiretw battles

All of your units are multiple silver chevrons, most of his are not ranked except for those goldbois. So AR gave you a high rating that doesn't necessarily matter as much when fought manually.

>>240667595don't wander out to meet as many factions as you canthe legendary modifiers and great power you get from confederating will put the whole world against you the turn you meet someone

>>240668310Skaven, DElfs and Kangz are my favorite factions thematically.But I'd say out of the three, Skaven has the most underwhelming faction mechanics for sure. There's no real way to upgrade menace from bellow and the suicide bombers don't seem to ever do much.

>>240670348>FLC for a donut steal raceThe only reason Brets were free is because they were supposed to be in vanilla TWW1 but CA is totally incompetent so the game was delayed a month and the Brets were still unready.

Heroic victories are a fucking meme in this game.
I'm planning to give EB 2 a try after playing it just after it came out. It seems there are still a lot of missing units (No hellenic cataphratcs ;_;). Do you guys know what the most complete factions are?
>>240672976>he's completely oblivious to the real world, the gaming industry and marketingnot only does it not make sense considering the above, but anything other than the Empire, Dwarfs, High Elves, Kislev and Bretonnia are literally NPC-factions that are played by mommys boy anime faggots.

Gonna start either a Durthu or Lokhir campaign, thoughts? I haven't played either for a long ass time and didn't really give either much of a chance in the last campaign (maybe turn 30ish)Thoughts?
>>240671197No evidence fuck wit.
>>240679624If you're starting Lokhir, you will want to wipe Skrolk ASAP since he shares the initial region with you and will start spreading corruption all over. Teclis will probably come south to fuck with you.
>>240674107>all the generic factions Cry harder waifu faggot.
Im just curious but when playing TK which dynasty do people pick first? I usualy like to get the 4th dynasty/Ushabti guy since i love those units but im interested what others go with?
>>240680659The second one is great as well.
>>240680659I like the early chariot tech in the first dynasty
Who are the most cute beastmen creature?
>>240680816Chariots are so fucking based.
Most fun Tomb kangs faction?
>>240681878Exiles and Followers are fun. Khemri is alright, Lybaras is boring.
Did you know Marienburg are fucking heretics.Also Nordland might or might not have gotten Norsca'd
>>240680009actually the waifu faggots would be those who do all sorts of mental gymnastics to justify playing cringeworthy shit such as greenskins, chaos or, gods forgive me for uttering their name, the lizardmen

>>240686238>Here are all these features>Remove them for meOf course it's going to be an afterthought. I can't imagine why you'd want to play classic.
>>240686998Oh wow. I'm used to it being full of nonsense so no. Now I feel retarded
>>240670348Very cool but where is fucking Melekh?, also Sigvald should be moved to Slaanesh while WoC become Chaos undivided.Also Nagash is clearly DLC.

>>240688192Look at the new COOL art bro! Wow!
>>240688398You mean hermit knights? the 1 cap novelty unit that is directly from lore and aren't real grail knights anyway?
>>240680659The ones that upgrade Tomb Guard/Ushabti are usually my go to, since those are the most reliable worskhorse units you have.
>Thrones of Africa next
>>240673116I mean, what exactly are you complaining about here?
>>240680659>pick first?whatever buffs skeleboys, nehekara warriors, chariots, archers and crappy horsemen.I can get bonuses for tomb guard and ushabti and such after that, when I have level 3 buildings.
>>240687639Just the mounts for the Mortarchs who were already faction leaders.
>>240688192My only real complaints are the fucked up casting system and some factions getting absurd stat buffs to their units. Shit like Greatswords having Chosen level stats
>>240687639>He's never had his own army list, during End Times he just had combined VC/TK armies with the Morghasts chucked in.exactly why, Nagash, Morghast and Dread abyssal need animations & fx, I imagine different types of DLC for game, Lord packs but all the stuff is one race only:-Nagash LL-Neferata LL-Proper Lahmian lord-Proper Nercarch lord maybe?-Morghast DW/haldberd-Dread abyssal mounts for Mortarchs (unique assets for each hopefully like in TT)-Coven Throne-Abyssal Terror-Spirit host-Special look for Tomb/Grave Guard maybe?-Mechanics for confederating other vamps/TK, pick who gets to be a Mortarch-More RoRs

>>240691061Azhag gets 100% damage resistance to Nagash‘s spells.
>>240691061Based and Orcpilled
>>240691061Would be cool but wouldn't Nagash need his crown to be revived? Also don't think he even likes him. Harkon and Noctilus would be candidates too.
>>240691534Nagash kept Mannlet. It's more of a question of whether or not he'd be vindictive enough to enslave him in the first place.
>>240691887What did manny do? I know he fucks shit up but what to Nagash?
Daily reminder Nagash was weak.
Oh boy less than 2 months left for the release of that game I still don't know a thing about, and didn't care in the first place!Gonna be the savior of CA for sure!
Nagash is the reason we got Age of Sigmar, if only he had stopped being a cunt for one second.
>RiceThe staple food of Northern China, where the bulk is the population was located during the three kingdoms, is wheat.>PandasPandas were always obscure. There's no known pretty 20th century Chinese art depicting pandas. Rhinos however, used to be widespread in China and armor was made from their hides.>Karst formationsAre more of a South Western China thing.
>>240692849GW and money is the reason.
>>240692102Manfred stabbed Gelt in the back just as Nagash and the rest of the spell casting Incarnates were about to close the portal Archaon had opened, obliterating everything as of ET, prior to that he was sired by Vlad/Neferata or a Lahmian and ran off to study with the Necrarchs and there is some lore that was written in character.>>240692591Quiet Ushoran or no more feasts
>>240692102Mannfred plotted to sabotage the ritual so Nagash wouldn't return at full-strength, then he plotted at every opportunity to overthrow Nagash and become his own master again. He never really got the chance to put it in motion but Nagash and Arkhan were both aware he never had any loyalty.
>tfw CA's general market strategy
>>240693172I knew about that, thought it was something else before ET.>>240693669ahhh, fucking Manny.They should make the books of Nagash a global mechanicanyway(like the sword of Khaine) and Arkhan/Neferata would need to collect them to revive him.
>>240656312>tfw shitposter is 100% right

>>240698103did you draw that, anon?
Medieval 3 when? My inner soldier of Christ demands mudslime blood.
>>240700757I'll be too busy playing it to notice.
Got my buddy for the night ( nothing homosexual, just two guys being dudes enjoying a couple gaggers and throat pulls ((hot dogs)), was wondering a good coop campaign.I was thinking vampires maybe. He's not very good at the game so I think a Norsca/Chaos campaign would be out of the question. Help me out, lads.
>>240701950>playing shitty cashgrabs>delaying the best TW for bugmenOH NO NO NO NO NO NO
>>240701995Chaos/Beastmen can work. Tell him to scrap his marauder building and he can just shit out chaos warriors that do all the work for himOr do Tyrion/Brets and be the most uppity assholes the world has ever seen

>>240700964Skaven probably have the worst AI odds of any race desu

>>240702262I'm shit at brettonia and there's no way he has the micro for them.What If I go Kemmler and he goes Vlad?We tried empire/dwarfs, but that was kind of boring.
>>240702427>best lookingIf mobile games are your metric then yes go ahead.
>>240701995Greenskin/Handz campaign might be good, their units are very straigtforward and the campaign start is pretty easy.
>>240702591Spoken like someone who's never seen a mobile game before.
>>240701078Yes its my fav lord
>>240702729looks good, do you post your stuff anywhere?
>>240702710It looks like Taishi Panda. Stop defending shitty chinaman games
>>240703010Nothing warhammer related just like to draw crap in ms paint
>>240703082Where does this delusion even come from? Is it like a weird groupthink thing, or are you as an individual just disabled?
>>240703147That will suffice.
Rats cry blood.
>>240703207Just telling the truth that it looks like shitty chinese shovelware. That notion doesnt require a 'groupthink' when its common knowledge.
must be nice living rent free in fantasoy heads
>>240703523Except when what you call common knowledge is just plain wrong. That's what a delusion is. The things you say and the facts don't match up at all.
>>240703889Nice way of outing yourself then mr. Newfriend. The chinese are not welcome in 4chan.
>>240703990>Implying Chinese can into EnglishMaybe you should think about why you think the things you think. There is something wrong inside your head and you can probably improve as a person by looking into it.
>>240704159And a ching chong ping pong to you too
>>240702710>>240703207>>240703889>This isn't mobile-tier graphicsFuck off, shill.
>>240704245Jesus fucking christ that UI looks fucking garbage. Why so many flat black borders everywhere?
>>240704245I can do this as well.>This is mobile-tier graphicsIt looks like any other total war campaign map but with brighter colours and more detailed textures.
>>240704562>detailedAnon. Compare the world map to this piece of shit.
>>240704562>detailed texturesNot even him but you're a fucking blind retard. The ground textures look worse than R2. I dont care one way or another about 3K and will probably end up playing it, but stop trying to pretend its anything but mediocre so far.
>>240704696No it looks like a chinese painting. I had something like it on the wall when I was a kid
>>240704696>>240704734You realised this is a 1282x675 screenshot of a compressed youtube video, right? Have you actually seen it in action? They haven't downgraded the quality of the map.
>>240704920And chinese paintings are garbage. Its not an excuse just as ToB using authentic 10th century art style didnt make it not look like putrid garbage
>>240704983Theres nothing to downgrade when it looks awful even as a thumbnail image
3K is going for shogun 2's stylized graphics which ended up looking better that later games.
>>240705191>when it looks awful even as a thumbnail imageThink about the shit you are saying. Why would a thumbnail image look good? How do some of you even breathe?
>>240705295Im saying that its not even a matter about the quality of the textures. The actual design of the map and game ui simply looks bad.
>fantasyfags think anything that isn't overdesigned trash looks like a mobile game
>>240705407On what basis? The actual design of the map and game ui simply look good. You haven't given a reason outside of thinking it looks like a mobile game which is a delusion. You just keep saying it's bad and you don't like it.
>>240705467Overdesigned is better than having nothing at all. I just want the games to go back to med 2 where the map actually felt alive amd not soulless like 3chinkmanii right here
And now fat toad I shall smack you with this rusty ball and chain
>>240705726>where the map actually felt aliveWhat do you even mean? You're just saying buzzwords. Nothing in the med 2 map feels more or less alive than any other TW game. You're just high on nostalgia.
>>240705654Well lets see.Black borders everywhere instead of stylized borders? CheckFlat bold letters to make it better see on your phone? CheckSimplistic as fuck icons? CheckBasic as fuck lighting and colors because thats all your shitty phone can handle? CheckHave you actually played a mobile game that arent waifu collecting mobage? Because this looks like Age of War or whatever those youtube ads call it.
>>240705998Med 2 maps had caravans, animals, and people walking all over the map. Later TWs removed that and it looks even more simplistic here.
>>240706271Even ToB had it. Maybe play some new TWs other than WH first before talking shit. 3 kingdoms will have it.
>>240706137>Tiny font and icons looks like a mobile game UI!
>>2407061372 reasons for the black. First it's a stylistic choice to replicate chinese ink paintings and 2, from a design point of view, you want to have things you are going to read on dark solid colours/black. They've made the map so colourful that they need a background for the UI or it's going to get lost in the map. This is basic shit, anon.
>>240706409Rome 2 and Attila didnt have it, only in the battle maps. ToB was made by an oldfag modder but that game flopped. What makes you think CA will copy it?
>>240706271There's little caravans and ships moving around the map in the videos. Are you blind?
>>240706640Shogun 2 was colorful too but its UI was the best ever in TW and it sure as hell isnt this simplistic and boring.
>>240706676They've literally shown little wagons on the roads and boats sailing down the river in the trailers with the campaign map. Go actually watch shit. Why the fuck would you argue without having looked?
NOOOOOO AHHHH, HORNED RAT HELP ME!
>>240706678>shipsOH NO NO NO NO NOPlease tell me youre joking because this game doesnt even have naval combatThe only "caravan" Ive seen is the one following the fat fuck and I doubt thats actually part of the campaign map. Its more likely some nonsense attached to the unit.
>>240706971>this game doesnt even have naval combat>It like old total war games so it sucks!
>>240706796It had the same design approach. Pick a theme, japanese banners, and put your ui on it so everything is clear to read.The 3kingdoms one only just looks like this with a different theme and more clutter. The UI will be scaleable though.
>>240706971Right, so you know they have assets for models that walk around on the campaign map now. I guess they won't use those.
Are fantasoy fags still butthurt they won't have the privilege of buying DLC for a few more months?
>>240708137I don't know who's who in this general any more. Anything new just gets shouted down no matter what game it's for. All we get left with is a couple of screenshots and people roleplaying as rats.
Coward frog calls skins to his aid!
>>240708256Also don't forget russian posters disrespecting the thread and speaking in their runes about being beaten by their drunk parents. What nice paragon of a thread.
>>240708497When did that happen?
>>240708486Thicc boy on mobility scooter chances down rat shits
Кoгдa выйдeт нoвoe ДЛC? Я зaeбaлcя ждaть, пocoны.
>>240708673There was that one schizo poster that talked about a commie demon world and loves ron paul.
So what are my fellow /twg anons doing tonight?
>>240708497It's just one lunatic speaking in russian here. We don't like him either.
This might be a very stupid question but does TWWH have to be activated in steam for the dlc to work in TWWH2 or can I uninstall the first game and have everything still work?
>>240710798You have to install it once, for the DLCs to work. You can uninstall it after you've confirmed it's working.
>>240664351YOU are the Goblin-poster now, anon
>>240704245>double stack unit cardsWHY DONT YOU FUCKING LEARN UAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH
>>240655070I mean, if you're wondering if you can still win this, yea you can, just use the brets as a meatshield and flank the choas shits.
>>240713175G O B L I N S
>>240674107I would add Durthu as currently or potentially the most moral and upright faction in the gametrees are the good (if retarded) guys IRL, don't forget it
>>240713828The AI is strangley pretty smart with these invisible fuckers, always flanking super wide and fucking my artillery up the ass.
Can I somehow take t3 Awakening with such an army, anons? I REALLY would like to get rid of Harkon before he kills all the lizards and allies with Clan Pestilens.
>>240715623Yes, their towers suck ass and your arrows outrange their gunners. The only thing you have to worry about is artillery, and you got a big dumb bird for that.
That's their army:
>>240715801>>240715778Just apply some fire damage to the vampire units and you win.
>>240715778Thanks for a good advice.I also have Invocation of Vaul active so maybe I will even be able to kill some towers and depth guard with it, if they put them on walls.
>>240715623Would be hard, if you can get rid of the towers by using teclis and that lore master as bait via using the arty you got, following by using your archers to get rid of anyone they can out range, you should be able to. By the time you get on the walls, they should be weak to such a point of no challenge.
>>240715870I only have 4 fireballs, and my Teclis is for some reason very awful at casting them. He always misses. Maybe if I break the gate and try to fry some dudes that stand behind it.
>>240715942Nvm, looking that the garrison, hella easy
>>240716028I would put teclis on the walls after you get inside. Then fire from above. Bolt spells are noted as being more accurate from above because they have no arc.
>>240715942Well, with 600 hours of playtime I'm pretty good at cheesing sieges. It's just the first time I play high elves or play against Harkon. So I'm pretty bad at measuring their strength against each other.
>>240716131I'm not sure it's such a good idea. Teclis is so squishy, previously in this campaign he got killed by 3 fireballs and got almost killed when I put him against bleakswords lol.
>>240646650Hey guys i'm currently playing TK Khalida and I have lots of questions.1. Is it worth it to conquer Teclis and unsuitable climate regions?2. If I damage a building capital (the one w garrison) w/ Liche Priests action does it disable the garrison?3. After conquering the lizard and dark elf where do I go next? 4. What's the best unit comp? Do I just mass archers? How do I use chariots effectively?
>>240713259That's not even the worst part. You can only recruit a maximum of 6 untis per retinue so if you want a full stack, you need to bring two other generals for 21 units total.
>>240716247When the coast is clear atleast. But yeah, Teclis is the only lord that feels fragile.
>>240660757Rome Total War has aged like total shit and crashes all the time, Medieval is good but the agent spam makes it unfun.
>>240716749Dont bother until you're able to deal with the climate penaltiesNo, damage building is basically worthlessWherever you want, really. Go hunt for more books or just go bully some faction you dont likeChariots require constant attention and micromanagement. You have to constantly keep them moving and looking for something they can run straight through. Never let them get stuck in, either pick a target they can run through, or cycle charge the enemy's frontline. Only keep them in for a few seconds before pulling out and charge again
>>240704245UH NO NO NO NO NO NO
>>240708889I know this is basically a cold reading but I wasn't coming here for these feels. The irony is I'm here to distract myself from them.Have a happy skink.
>>240685282What happens if you let Carloman live?
does twg still hate radious?
>>240723272hating stupid optional content is irrational where there is even more stipid and low quality official content that can't be turned off without making your own damned mods to turn it off!
>>240704245Atleast, I hope, this campaign map wont require 100% GPU load, unlike total warhammer 2
Honestly, why are they even making 3chinkdoms?Even if you like the idea, the battles just look absolutely god awful to the point where you might as well not even bother. In terms of the strategy layer, why would anybody want to play it over romance of the three kingdoms XI or whatever?
Can somebody explain to me why lvl 3 Luthor Harkon can kill 5-6 models of swordmasters with one shot of his pistol? Did CA finally lost their mind?As least this turd got btfo'd by based eagle and life mage (cycle charged the cunt so he wasn't able to get up lul).He deserved it. After the battle, my whole elf army peed on his corpse.
>>240725749It's the missle strength getting amplified because missle strength itself is wonky.
>>240725384Because chinkbux even though it's not a very well-made game and the chinks are starting to regulate and produce their own gamesCA is just behind the times as usual and putting in no effort. It could've been good, it even has a few decent ideas but noooooooo
>>240700790wood elves is this even a question
>>240725384Better than tolkien ripoff fantasy shit retarded wh*toid
>>240726407I wasn't complaining about the setting, retard, I was saying there's just plain better games in that setting.
>>240726407Total War Middle Earth when
>>240726478You don't know that
I miss the time before TW: Warhammer 1 and 2. I really do.
>>240725384Because based CA is actually planning to kill themselves before they see themselves making Medieval 2 and knowing it can never match up to the original. 3 Kingdoms will flop so hard that Sega will have no choice but to dismantle CA and put more resources into make Atlus games and Yakuza.
>>240727502rome killed the franchise
>>240727502Ah, these wonderful ded thread times...
>>240727660Better a dead thread than ending up with extreme autism like other so called active generals like DDLC or TESG
>>240704245this looks like absolute dogshit
>>240727843>ending up with extreme autism>implying the total war series isn't autistic as it is
>>240727660Do you have that picture of Morathi she looks cute>>240727843To be fair historical threads have their own brand of autism, the type most often associated with Fateshit or /gsg/ (when the latter isn't dumping scat.
>>240727984It's a different kind of autism at least. The latter often includes shit like discord and you dont want /twg/ to head down that path when people realize they cant talk about TW forever so the general ends up being a chatroom over mundane shit.
Are vampire coast rebels just regular vampires? Is it another bug?
>Teclis' agent goes north to discover good old friend Mazdamundi, to forge alliance and help him fight vampires and skaven shits>agent discovers him after I end turn>the very first thing mazdamundi does when it's his turn, is war declarationWhat did I ever do to you, stupid fat fuck.Enjoy getting destroyed by Cholesterol Direfin, I'm not helping you.
It's been so long, ratbros... Why must we suffer such waiting?
>>240729578there's more chinks than there is rats, if only you faggots would breed more maybe CA would consider you the bigger market and three chinkdoms would be waiting for based warhammer instead of the other way around
>>240729865Giving so much of a fuck about what is basically the Holy Roman Empire with slanted eyes.
How important is scouting out every port for trade agreements on TW vortext campaign?
>>240730559>not playing Vortex campaigns with certain racesIt's like you enjoy shitty turn times and terrible map painting objectives
anyone got an alternative download for call of warhammer botet?
Why does 3 chinkdoms look like a mobile game
>>240728116I don't actually care. Autism is autism.
>3 kingdomsI don't want to speak too soon but to me this looks like CA has finally put an end to their constant dumbing down of the Total War franchise, turning their titles into glorified arcade games to appeal to a non-existent mass audience, detail, depth and realism is what I want, I hope I'm not disappointed.
>>240731146are there really people who play this game who get turn times over a minute in ME?
>>240731146>turn timesGood PC>objectivesNo one gives a shit about them lul
>>240731403They're just poorfags, ignore them.
>>240731346At least with some shit. Diplomacy looks a lot more in depth this time around. I'm pretty hyped to hear more about how spies and agents work. They killed off naval combat, but I only ever play like 5 of them in a campaign and auto resolve the rest.
>>240731254i could mega it just for you but my internet is trash
>>240731567i found a google drive link i wanted. gonna see how to transfer to my drive and download ithttps://drive.google.com/uc?id=1sk7GvPnQOTANBg6uWoWYmyt7suAsmiEi&export=downloadthanks
>>240729578Surely their dedicated DLC team is using the extra time to create amazing units, new mechanics and more than one lord. R-right ratbros?
>>240731749at best we are getting more than one old world faction updated w/ the long waitcan't have the goyi- I mean the consumers gettiing more bang for their buck now, can we?
>>240731749You got Tretch for free, go play Tretch you ungrateful fucko.
>>240732638yay, aura buff, buff when you run away from shit, and uhhh....
>>240671307Because nobody else is even trying to make similar games. Compared to other games, how hard could it be for a studio to make a Medieval 2 clone in 2019?
>>240733101Not that hard. The problem is that RTS genre is fucking dead.
>>240732638But I want Thanquol, Ikit Claw and Throt the Unclean.
My fucking god, Vampire coast is so obnoxius to fight. Their heroes and lords are just rape yours both in ranged AND melee, and their spells are just a devastating mess of special effects and damage. When something is casted, you can't see shit for half a minute, and the only thing you CAN see is your units just being deleted. All the while your backline is being gangbanged by bats and bats with guns, because that's a thing now! Worst faction in the game.
>>240733101And you people are complaining why CA is even bothering with 3K. In fact, I see it as a positive in a way, because this will mean that Koei will actually try to improve their own games now that a serious competitor is entering the playground. Then again, who am I kidding, these two companies never learn and either of them will simply go bankrupt in the future.Fuck gayming to be honest.
>>240733347I'm sure there is characters like the ones you want in 3chinkdoms.
>a thing like warcraft total war exists and it just got released last monthneat. why nobody told me this
>>240733534>medieval 2 mod about warhammer for kids>why nobody told me thisBecause nobody gives a shit
>>240733691SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP
>>240675943Nobody gets mad when you eat all the cheese pizza.
>>240733432Look at this salty dog
>>240734314Fuck rotting leviathans bruh. My elven noble wasn't able to even scratch this piece of crab before routing in terror. "Anti-large" my ass.
>>240734439just shoot it
>>240731403>>240731409>>240731438From the way people talked about turn times in ME I just assumed it was an issue everybody had. If it's only for shit PCs I feel silly sticking to the standalone campaigns.
>>2407336913K gets shat on at both ends, it's too realistic for the fantasy crowd and too fantastic and Chinese for the history crowd.
>>240734979And just right to me for some reason.
>>240734979You also forgot that it looks like a fucking mobile game. This will end up like ToB. Only a few handful of people will play it on release, but once they realize the majority of people in the general aren't interested in talking with them, they stop posting and proceed to talk about the status quo. Same reason why people eventually stop campaign posting about history TWs.
>>240735206>Same reason why people eventually stop campaign posting about history TWs.Because we've already talked them to death and the latest entry was shit, so nobody is talking about it?
>>240735368>the latest entry was shit, so nobody is talking about it?Exactly. Which is why 3K won't get any traction here. CA is one of the most predictable gaming companies where you can tell which of their games will be shit from a glance alone.
>>240728335They're regular Vampire rebels.Why do you think it's a bug that if you've got high Vamp corruption and low public order the rebels will be Vamps?
Time for a new campaign, Morathi or Throgg?
>>240727648I think you meant to add a 2 after Rome there anon.
>>240734538It has 150 armor, by the time my arrows did damage to it, he wrecked half my army. I guess you just need to counter this shit with high tier units, there is no budget way.
>>240646650WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK IS WRONG WITH THIS PIECE OF SHIT GAMEJUST HOW MUCH DO I NEED TO SPEND TO PLAY IT DECENTLYI HAVE A GTX 1060 LAPTOP AND THE CAMPAIGN MAP STILL HAS FPS DROPSATMEDIUMFUCK CA
>>240727605Are you from the past anon?Were you cryogenically frozen around 2003 and think that we're still in that year?
>>240734749Well yeah, my PC is nothing special, just a decent modern PC, and turn times don't bother me at all.
>>240735463We know next to nothing about 3KI'm willing to give it a chance, but I can't help but feel wary with all the secrecy regarding gameplay so close to launch. If it's another R2, CA will spend too many resources buttering it up like they did with R2, which has had the attention for 5 fucking years after it's release.
>>240735762A full fat gtx 1060 should still be able to run this perfectly at medium
>>240735692well yeah, its a fuckhuge slow t5 monster
>>240735692Sisters of avelorn
i think the greenskins might be planning something here guys
>>240735876>Marienburg in Norscawhat
>>240735692regular HE archers have no APyou have sisters of avelorn or Phoenix guard to deal with it
>>240734979It's not too realistic for fantasy players, it's just not Warhammer for Warhammer players.
>>240735876we's gonna stab em
fantasy players never played the other TW games
>>240735692What HE faction were you playing as?
>>240735767What is else is there to learn about it? We've seen the combat mechanics, we've seen the diplomacy, and we've seen how armies work. Some people in reddit even mention based on the ambush demo that generals have "wonky mass" where they would just bulldoze through entire units without stopping. There is literally nothing good that can be said about this gameplaywise.
>put Settra on a sphinx>leave him somewhere and he gets 100+ kills>put Settra on his chariot>micro him like a madman and barely get 150+ killsIt's really a shame how superior the sphinx is.
>>240735767It's already been called anon. The reason nobody has seen any gameplay yet is because TW 3 Kingdoms is actually a Visual Novel.
>>240735921not for long i am afraid
>>240736290>visual novelLol no. It's a trading card game.
>>240736078Oh, enough of your bullshit. BEGONE LUSTED!Stay assblasted snowflake.
>>240735475Because it was bloody Harkon's capital. I thought it would spawn vampire coast mutineers or something.
>>240736435No anon, the trading card game will be the DLC
Want to tweak a wh mod I got from the workshop, where do I find the pack file to do so?
>>240736089TeclisDabbing on Skrolk currently.
>>240736474Yeah, and if you were playing as Harkon, they would be. If Harkon's gone, and the Mutineers have already been wiped out, then you're not going to get Mutineers.
Btw, White Lions aren't that bad.At least against rattos. Good thing Skrolk's artillery wasn't focusing them and focused my bloody Swordmasters instead lul.
>>240736165The way I did it was that I just gathered a chariot gang consisting of Settra (Chariot of the P.I.M.P.), 2 regular and 3 archer chariots. Settra level 40 with his items, those chariots were rank 9 with all red line upgrades... Let's just say I didn't need the rest of my army at all.
Are Sisters of Slaughter supposed to be t3?
>>240736847Mmm... yeah? What's wrong?
>>240735831If you're not mentioning any of your specs beyond your GPU it means you have a shit PC and probably don't even know you have a shit PC.
>>240736685>this expensive "top tier" unit isn't that bad if you throw it against garbage cannon fodderWow, who would have thought?
>>240736976They seem to be too strong to be t3.>>240737105
>>240736685>>240737278they are in the same vein as corsairs and depth guardgood against shit tier chaff and mediocre to awful when against to other units
Why doesn't Arkhan start in his tower?
>uninstalled Warhammer 2 because lol no content for another half-year>try to get interested in Three Kingdoms>new diplomacy looks cool, the art style is neato and the music doesn't sound bland and soulless>absolutely fuck all gameplay beyond a scripted ambush battle and useless posters>realize I just dont give a shit about that time periodI bought Divinity Original Sin 2 on sale, guess I'll play that for now.
>>240737278They cost as much as Lothern sea guard, and are only t3. Their only problem is that their melee defence is quite shit. Same applies to dwarfen hammerers, but no one seems to complain about them.
>>240737341they were even stronger on releasesilver shields, better ward save and MA/MD statspretty much better executioners with less killing power but higher staying power
>>240737278Vampirate-chibi-chan a cute! CUTE!
Dastardly Darren at it again
>>240737341Before someone from CA watched The Twilight Saga and Pirates of the Carribean at the same time, CA were in love with dark elfs. So here you go, Sisters of Slaughter are only t3.Get unit caps mod, that'll balance everything.
>>240737378Depth Guard with Polearms are good once you get them past rank 3. Corsairs though...
>>240737492No one complains about hammerers because no one plays shitty NPC factions like the dwaves
>>240737492Hammerers hit much harder and don‘t lose stats when losing a fight.
>>240737492Dawi players are just grateful for anything we're given. We don't bear grudges. Oh, wait.
>>240737479More like dont give a shit about that part of the world in general lmao am I right eurobros?
>>240737582that last question is seriously important, the move away from generating maps towards having a select number of premade ones the game chooses from is one of the biggest problems w/ wh that goes under most player's radar. You are essentially playing the same maps over and over and over again
>>240737582Anyone shitting on CA is alright in my book
>>240737582>YikesI bet posts here about this gaylord are just him.
>>240737719I believe they are somewhere between 4 or 5 most popular factions tho? What was that all about?
>>240737479Based. Be sure to get the character customization mods and overhauled crafting as well.
>>240737582CA hated him because he spoke the truth
>>240737479>realize I just dont give a shit about that time periodsame, but i also don't like total war games and campaigns with tighter focuses on specific regions/peoplesshogun 2, fots, age of charlemagne, wrath of sparta, etc.the big grand campaign maps stretching across continents, cultures, religions and so on are way more my shit
So I'm trying to remove the oc ancestor skills that the beta old world skill mod adds in wh2, so if I just go into pfm and delete any entries I see that references them that should do it right?
>>240737582I don't know who is more patheticthe person that is obsessed with Darren that he brings him out of the blue for shitting on CA's mishaps for attention, or Darren himself
>>240737897>someone calling out CA for being shit is a bad thingdumb nintendo poster
>>240737582>why do we have combat like in rome, medieval 2 or warhammer instead of shit synchronized combat like in empire, shogun 2 or rome 2I have no idea who this guy is, but he can go fuck himself. Sync combat animations was the wrong way to go and I'm glad CA got rid of it.
>>240656312>living rent-free in the heads of seething warhammerfags and eurofagsIt should be no surprise that warhammer gweilos are incredibly thinned skinned
>>240737802Any faction I don't like is a shitty NPC meme faction for gaylords. I care deeply for my figurine collecting game and have to remind you of that at all times.
>>240737749As you have been since Rome 2, or didn't you notice?
Fuck Rome II and everything that came after
>>240737897They're both Darren, anon.
Himyar, Tanukhids or Lakhmids? I don't dig Aksum's roster as much.
>>240738034Matched or unmatched, the combat looks shit in modern TW engine.It's weird going back watching Rome Total War and Medieval 2 Total War gameplay and remembering how well the combat animations went, then looking at the slip and slide and microshuffling of modern TW games even Warhammer is guilty of it despite having almost no matched combat. Except Shogun 2, which I can't explain but it looks good. Maybe they had smaller collision meshes?
>>240738250Tanukhids are the best, tonnes of fun.
>>240738250Aksum are pretty fun tbqhwyf.
>>240737582>>240737754>>240737757>>240737837>>240738013Fuck off and get a job, Darren
>>240738074no, you haven't you fucking moronR2 and attila may generate maps that are on the surface level similar due to how the terrain might be in areas where you are fighting battles, but they are not exactly the same like the ones in wh/wh2. Remember how in r2/attila you could load a map in custom battle by selecting a bit of terrain on the little campaign map they had, which would then generate a battlemap reflecting what the game would create for said location in the campaign? That is no longer the case in wh, and instead you are playing on the same rotation of pre-made maps that are simply placed in tilesets on the campaign, meaning you are literally fighting on the same battlemaps every time
>>240737840I agree with you but AoC is pretty good, you have a few unique campaigns with Mercia, Cordoba, and whoever you want to play in Europe.
>>240738170nah, our resident shitposter is obsessed with himhe's posting out of context tweets or his patreon at random times if you also look at one of his abandoned reddit accounts, you can see him going in every thread about Darren and shitting on him to the point that reddit CA fanboys feel is too muchyou can tell he's here because he keeps posting his stupid "rent free" reply to his own posts in hopes to get people to reply, because noone cares to respond to him anymoreboth him and Darren should honestly fucking stop embarrassing themselves
>>240738404Streaming multiple times a weekMaking well produced YouTube videosEngaging in community discussionIf anything, Darren has too many jobs
>>240737748No, but it's basically a soft-fantasy game. Chinese history is balls out of control, I kind of wish instead of low hanging fruit (pop culture phenomena Three Kingdoms).600CE - 1000CE, had alot of stuff going on, with Tang dynasty fighting with Tibet, Islamic influences from the west, Japan, migratory peoples from Russia, etc. Map could have stretched from the Sea of Japan to the Caspian.
>>240738307Shogun 2 looks quite bad if you zoom in for me. Game isn't without it's flaws.
>>240738507I want Ming
>>240738307I think it's an issue of unit mass. CA still can't do pathfinding but it's easier to hide when a dozen+ men can occupy the same space. Much more playable than trying to walk your men down city streets in Rome 1 and Med 2 but looks like shit.
>>240737816Any thoughts on a starting build? Is lone wolf still hilariously overpowered and game breaking?
>>240738428Yes you have, brainlet.We're not talking custom battle here. On the R2 campaign map you were battling on pre-made maps, just as you are in WH / WH2. This was especially noticeable in siege battles, where there were only 5 or 6 settlements, no matter where you were on the map. In the North I found myself seigeing the same map 5 times in a row attacking different settlements with 3 different armies against 4 different tribes.Taking Italia, every coastal town was the same map, even down to the direction of the sea, no matter which side of the coastline I was on.
>>240738493Shut up Darren.None of those things is a job.
>>240738818>field battles vs settlement/siege onesare you fucking retarded? When did I ever mention siege ones you fucking moron
>>240738614Oh, hai Flash
>>240738739No. Lone wolf got nerfed
>>240738950You didn't, I said "Especially noticeable in siege battles"But field battles were just as pre-selected in Rome 2 as they are in the Warhammer games, no matter how much you want to pretend otherwise. Grassland, Mountains, Sand, Light Forest, Dense Forest. All the same with very, very minor variations like a farm or road on the field. Warhammer has the same.
>>240738818Siege battles are always static. WH 2 has static field battles as well, while R2, Attila and WH1 didn'tThey are generated based on the campaign map position and terrain you're fighting on
>>240739195>But field battles were just as pre-selected in Rome 2They literally objectively weren't you dipshit
>>240738580True but I think they managed to make it worse in Rome 2 and it's childrenI think >>240738650 has a point since pathfinding was pretty wacky in Shogun 2 at times and seemed to be an area they improved for R2/Attila
>>240739195Minor variations are still better than fighting the same fucking static map in WH2. This is especially bad when terrain like jungles in Lustria has only 3 maps for regular battles, 2 for chokepoints, 1 for ambush and 1 for sallying out or no wall settlements.
>>240739259*Sigh*Yes they fucking were. They were generated according to map position, but there was a limited selection for the AI to choose from.This is a fact. WH2 simply has a slightly more limited selection,
>>240739283>>240739635use dryains reskin you noob
>>240739719I am you retard
>>240739641Why are you showing me a picture of your mother?
so give me a straight answeri liked most historical TW titles except the obviously shit ones like launch rome 2 or ToBi did not like warhammer, i just don't like fantasy settingsam i going to like 3k? am i not going to like it? should i stay away?
>>240739797you aren't going to like it. It has the same hero centric focus as warhammer, with the majority of the gameplay revolving around the chink fantasy version of a whole bunch of characters
>>240704245eh at least battle hopefully will be 2k+ again and not 600 vs 800 like warhammer. Miss 4-5k rome2/attila battle
>>240704245looks like one of those web games
>>240739797It's not gonna be good as a traditional TW gameIt'll be overstructured like Warhammer 2 was, because that's what CA thinks people want now.Maybe it's true, we'll have to see how the sales go
>>240739758Any reason why? I can never find people discussing the pros and cons of specific mods for this game.
>>240739797If you didn't like characters like Tyrion, Malekith, Durthu and other strong lords soloing armies in warhammer, you're probably not going to like 3K. History/classic mode seems like an afterthought that is lazily put together and not tested or balanced by the lack of any info beyond that one damage control blog that basically read "history fans pls buy our game"
>>240740103Nah I just don't like it personally. Load up the game, look at units, enable mod, look at units, decide for yourself.
>>240740352is this animay any good?
>>240740446Interesting concept, dogshit generic characters.
>>240740446no, it's a wasted conceptfantasy vs modern vs historical
>>240737582>matched combatWhich "previous historical games" is he talking about? The ones that look more like a hollywood movie?
>>240738051Wrong.>MC factionsSkaven, Vampires, High and dark elves>Antagonist factionChaos>SidekicksDwarfs, Empire, Wood elves, Bretcucks, Norsca>First rate NPCsGreenskins, Ogres, Tomb Kangz>Second rate NPCsAraby, DoW, Vampirates, Chorf>Third rate NPCsLizardmemes, Ind, Cathay, Nippon
>>240740637Shogun 2 and to an extent Rome 2. Basically TWs that had soldiers fighting 1 on 1 instead of being in formation.
Who would've thought that the one who defeats Malekith isn't Tyrion, but rather Teclis, his lil' brother and defender of Ulthuan!
>Tomb Kings don't have cost/upkeep for units/lords/heroes.This is definitely the most braindead piece of shit faction.
>>240741582>telling a quarter of the storyAre you retarded retarded, or deliberately retarded?
>>240741582They have fuck all for economy and have unit caps based on buildings, which cost a lot more than other factions.They are more balanced than shit like HE or DE
>>240740906Considering Malekith actually does think the real threat is Teclis, not that hard to arrive to that conclusion.
What's with HE always trying to memestack?
>>240742012For me it tends to be full stacks of swordmasters of hoeth...
>>240741582>VC, HE, DE and Dwarfs exist
>>240742079>DwarfsINTO THE BOOK IT GOES
>>240742061at least it's not a full stack of sisters or heroes
>>240741913I liked that quest battle a lot. In the beginning, Teclis says that Malekith got scared to arrive at the battle, because prophecy says he'll be killed by the elven mage... But then after you defeat the initial force, Malekith goes "fuck it" and joins the battle anyway. It was cool.
>start dwarf campaign>first battle vs grimgor>hist starting doom diver kills half of my hammerers not even a minute into the battlenice
>>240737582>Dong Zhou>BadUm.. No sweaty, try again
>>240742324>The likes of Chosen and Phoenix Guard that have prevailed in countless battles getting killed by a goblin smashing into their head
>>240669227>Best lands China has to offer.Defensive maybe, but in terms of economic output it was a backwater province.
>>240742324That's why you put valuable units behind your mainline. AI targets the first thing that's in range, you can even put a lord ahead and AI will start shooting it with artillery.
>>240742343I bet you think Saddam Hussein was a good guy too
>>240742832>believing jewish propagandagood goy
>>240742441Haha yeah imagine
>>240742603I had them behind the main line + my archers, gs ai seems hardcoded to focus fire them
>>240742991>get conscripted into the army by poncy lord with a stupid glowing hammer>years of grueling training with hardly a moments rest>somehow manage to survive long enough and work hard enough to become a Greatsword, one of the Empires elite front-line infantry>only to get blown up by a literal sentient fungus wearing wings fired out of a catapaultSuch is life in Reikland...
>>240743063Well I never had problems with it. Put them even more behind, I don't know. If AI focuses them so much, just bait his artillery in the melee range with your hammerers lol.
>One copy of Total War: Three Kingdoms, please
>>240742991>>240743236I believe it wasn't doom divers tho, projectile looks like it's a dwarfen gob-lobber.
>>240743357yeah its a gob lobber
Fatty got me guys... I didn't noticed him and he wiped out half of lothern sea guard units I had.I didn't expected AI to be so sneaky.
>>240744296ca actually did an ok job with programming the ai to use their corpses
so can you actually recycle the sword of khaine using the dwarf forge mechanic?
>>240744519>getting upset at cartoons on a cartoon website.>calling a weeabo a weeaboo on a website made by weeaboos for weeaboos.No sweatie, you kill yourself.
>>240742832He did the jobs americans were too lazy to do.
>>240744839>Muh weebsite for weebsIt's so funny how you fags get so defensive everytime, mad not everyone in your safe space has your shit taste?
>tfw one of my cockroaches just diedWhat game and mod has the best turkey campaign?
why is warhammer not fun anymore bros
>>240744839It's still funny if I call people "sweatie" r-right?
>>240746792>doesn't recognize the k-ons>doesn't recognize sweetie-postingbeing this new should be a bannable offense
>>240746785Because like most TW games it has an extremely shallow campaign and most of the enjoyable parts can be done doing a custom battle. CA doesn't care to improve it though because 90% of their fanbase play the game for 20 hours before they're done with it.
Trying out based ratbros as clan Mors. Which units should I use and abuse/ignore? Also any general tips for the skaven/Clan Mors?
>>240746792Lol kys newfag
>>240746904Nah, famalam, you done goofed here
Total War: Shogun 3 when, anikis? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D89Ma9EmuV0
>>240747041Just get 14 stormvermin halberds, 4 catapults, enginner and Queek. That's all basically, you roll over any army AI can throw at you.Sorry for spoiling the fun, but you did ask what you can abuse...
>>240747041beeline plagueclaws asap, iirc that includes using food to occupy the nearest settlement at t3 to build the catapult building
>>240740446I assume this is GATES. If it's anything like the mango it's just jap dick-waving with its joke of a military
>>240747041At least 6 artillery pieces and at least on engineer.
>I could use this trait you give Cylostra, thank you very muchTeclis' journey through Lustria continues.His campaign is a lot easier than I expected though.
>>240747535>I could use this trait you give Cylostrahave fun for getting a permanent +5%miscast chance one of the greatest wizards in the wh world because you had the gall to defeat andy halls oc :^)
>>2407476105% miscast chance isn't much but its really baffling that you are pretty much forced to take a negative trait for killing an enemy lord.Like, why?
>>240747610I don't care, Teclis already has a very low miscast chance, and if he does miscast, it almost doesn't do any damage.Also he has the best potion in the game.+15 winds of magic for me and -10 for the enemy is MUCH more important.
>>240747702literally, unironically, because Andy Hall knew that people wouldn't like his fat ghost donut steel oc character. She is the only character in the game that gives a negative trait for defeating her
WHERE ARE MY OGRE KINGDOMS
>>240747535Teclis is one of those faction that starts off tough, but then turns into a steamroll, simply because he starts on the edge of the map safe from two sides. It's the same with Alith (the seas around his peninsula might as well be an edge, since noone attacks from there save for nothern delves once a millinia) or most tomb king factions.
>>240748203Tell me more about their units anon will they all be monstrous?
>>240646939Piggybacking on this to ask if there are any vampires outside of the human race in the Warhammer universe?
>>240748752>Monstuous (Even for an Ogre)
What's your favorite TW music?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcoaoa1KC-A
>>240748698Well I just destroyed blessed dread turn 5 and constantly turn my enemies against each other with intrigues. I capture settlement, end the war, then switch to an another opponent. It's really cool how you can control the flow of your wars with high elf intrigue mechanic, and it's incredibly useful for Teclis.Not mentioning the fact that Skaven and Vampire Coast aren't very strong opponents.Although they are really obnoxious in the siege battles.
>Vampire coast turn 15>lizardmen have one minor settlement left>Walls>20 stack army of saurus warriors which only the AI can afford>GOLD CHEVRON saurus warriorsHa ha ha I sure love how the AI cheats it adds so much fun to this game
>>240748752All Ogres are monstrous Infantry and their cav is monstrous cavalry.They do have non-monsterus infantry, the Gnoblars, who are super shit. They also have hound equivalents with the sabertusks.
>>240749703Only rogue armies can do gold chevron saurimanii so early.
Convince me to buy 3 kingdoms
>>240750002I'm sorry but I dont believe you
>>240750093It has ebin duels you can also play as some cute chink waifu
>>240749703what the fuck do you care? you are playing the babbymode broken faction
>>240750229I DEMAND more Memeri TV TW memes NOW
I don't think i can play total war without magic ever again bros
>>240750289He's not playing dwarfs chump.
>>240736078I play Attila and Rome though
Is a lord only challenge possible in Warhammer?
>>240752187Not reallyMaybe if Malekith/Tyrion/Kroq'gar get their hands on the sword of khaine early

>>240754217Bretonnia is like 5 editions behind. What did you expect? The only other faction thats more neglected by GW was the Sororitas until their new codex announcement last year
>>240736078Started with Shogun 1.
>>240746972Honestly this. I mostly play custom battles nowadays since I can pretty much imagine how my campaign will turn out anyway. At least with custom battles I can experiment with meme armies without waiting 4 turns to recruit them all.
What campaign captures this feeling best?Why is there no single settlement faction yet?Do we have to wait for Chorfs or Nagash for this?
Has this been the best meltdown to day?
>>240755415>I can pretty much imagine how my campaign will turn out anyway.This is the biggest problem with the game imo.. My favourite factions are Empire and Bretonnia, and i just know i'll be fighting vampires and an occasional mammoth stack for 100 turns until i paint the entire map red (or blue), then i'll skip next 50 turns waiting for the garbage tier chaos armies to spawn. CA needs to do something about their balancing.
>>240755851I love the backpeddaling he did once people pointed out the island battle mod came out 1 month earlier and people generally agreeing that Lokhir is Tretch tier low effort. The island battle and vampire pirates didn't have to be included in the same patch, but they did for a theme. They could have easily added the islands in any patch along the line.
>>240755851>modders fix the naval autoresolve>CA adds naval autoresolve in the free patch>it's apparently the vampire coast DLC who fixed naval autoresolvealso fuck that "strawman that speaks mean to me"
>>240756406To expand on this, i just want the map to have some semblance of stability where the AI "good" factions in the old world don't get straight up removed by turn 70... Let them hold their own until the chaos invasion, some of them might die because they got unlucky, sometimes they would wipe out their enemy, but it should be even in the end.It would unlock some actualy varietye for the player's faction, so for example, Empire could pick between burning down norscans, removing vampires or hunting greenskins, Bretonnians could launch crusades into wherever they want. Just let me have fun in the damn game instead of manualing vampire armies for ten hours.
>>240755428WElves are kinda like that, in a way.
>>240756965>>240755851You mean that this is real? Not some doctored image?
>>240757137NoLook him up along with Vanilla_Gorilla and dge1 on the official forums.Their posts are fucking retarded.Another goldie >>240691151They jump through so many hoops and make it seem like being negative warrants you getting your posts removed.Chinese google translate posts on the 3K forum are making fun of them and they can't ban them because they will probably be put off buying the game. Gotta ban them once pre-orders close and game is launched so they can't refund.
Fuck you manlets.

>>240758629Why are you all such faggots?
>>240758493Thats a lot of shared alliances. In fact what happens to a faction who has has military alliances with both factions that go to war? Do they have to pick a side or can they just play it neutral?
>>240758805they have to pick a side.
>>240756969They should just put a random factor in AI autoresolve.It would fix EVERYTHING
>>240736078Started with Warhammer Mark of Chaos
>>240759165That's a two edged sword.. It would defintely be fun to see an AI score a heroic victory for a change, instead of the game being determined the moment a faction gets the upper hand, but can you imagine the bitching from people who get unlucky rolls?I'd like it, though.
>>240736078I onI only played the warhammer games of Total War at the moment .But I do plan to buy Total War Three Kingdoms.ly played the warhammer games of Total War at the moment .But I do plan to buy Total War Three Kingdoms.
>>240759921Just for the AIvAI battles of course
>ca will never go back and fix atila
so what happens after the greenskins conquer everything and win?everyone dies to attrition?
>>240761089>you pre ordered Attila
>>240761089Why fix when you can play smooth, ten years from now, with new hardware.
>>240761089But 1212 is almost out?
Just started a vampire coast playthrough (Noctilus). When I go to my main settlement to recruit it only gives me global recruitment options, can I not recruit locally at settlements? is there only local recruitment from the pirate ship?
>>240763610>he bought VCsorry bud but tamponeers NOT welcome hereNO exceptions
>>240758493>thorgrim aggressive unreliableis that a mod? interdastingI always felt like a lot of AI major nations are held back, like Ungrim being Defensive sometimes sitting on his ass in karak kadrin, or at best not going further than the two large mountain provinces, his starting one and up north
>>240764304Why does everyone hate the Vampire Coast expansion so much? I haven't played it yet and was debating buying it.
>>240764365I'm using various mods but non for diplomacy. Thorgrim declared on all the skelekangz which probably granted him that.
>>240765289welp I didn't even know the diplomatic "traits" were not set in stone
>>240764828Breaks loreAdds new shitty lore and retconsIs generally a mishmash of updates about previous factions mechanics and they will not get them anytime soon thanks to pirates getting themA large amount of reskin unitsGeneral powercreep For a minor faction in the world, have a major presence in the game by completely steamrolling other factionsIs generally seen as the easiest faction to play as, singling out dwarfs as the noob factionCucked development time and DLC schedule from lizard and ratboys
don't mind me just choosing what to play
>>240765543Well then, shit.>tfw we got this instead of Chaos Dwarves or Ogres or Dogs of War
so let me get this straight>Shogun makes treaty of friendship and peace with Westerners>Emperor says 'fuck no' and decrees westerners expelled>some westerners get killed>gaijin retaliate>Emperor says 'oh fuck' and actually signs peace with them right after telling them to leave>now all of a sudden the Shogunate are the bad guys
>>240765875You left out the part where some weeb tells you it's more complicated than that. Otherwise spot on.
>>240765654alright boys, here we go
>>240765791>beastmemesthis one is geting ignored isn't it
>>240766098MY DOOM APPROACHES
>>240766098>tfw Ungrim if my favorite dwarf LL>But there's pretty much no reason to pick him over Grombrindal
>>240765364The traits are pretty meaningless anywayThe only ones I've seen that actually tell you/do anything are Likes Vampires, Distrusts X, and Passive
>got 48 amber>declare war on dwarves>lose a few alliances but still have like 10 amber left>2 people break alliacen and i have -11 amber>units can't even replenishkek fuck this mechanic
>>240766751Red Dwarves > White Dwarf
>>240764828It's just a few mad cucks, don't mind.
>>240646650Lads, playing Attila as the white huns. Got minor victory, culutral and military victory as well when it turned turn 450. All I didnt get was the Grand triumph. Its cause I need 10 full horde stacks for 200 units. Should I keep playing past 450 just to get the 10 stacks? Should I keep playing and destroy every other faction on the map? Thoughts?
The good old lord vanguard strat, those are some 200IQ strategies right there
*dabs on warhammerfags*
As an asrai-asur fag, i hope malecuck will be fun.
Ha your old Empire are not even a areal faction in the new cruel world of the SIGMAR!
HOW CAN HUMANLETS EVEN COMPETE
