Anyone want to play multiplayer game with me? wondering how it is like
post your Legendary 5!
Reminder that you must ally with elves
I have never played a Warhammer game, have no intention of playing Warhammer but do pay mind to literally any other fantasy series.
>>256234283Its 130 turns in, and I have given up on this campaign. Endless stacks across the river isn't fun to fight against, since it turns into 6+ battles a turn with endless reinforcing stacks (hey look at this dude on the other side of the mountain, hes reinforcing but you cant see in fog!) and the fact that you can't tell how much movement the enemy will have, not that it matters since they will never be out of position for you to engage. Whats someone with a lot of variety like Cao Cao?
>>256236597Setting is shit and the actual games are typically rushed out trash that. You've mad a good choice.
I love the 3K setting but I hate TW games. I'll stick to Dynasty Warriors and the tv series
"Reduced Yuan Shao’s desire to vassalise every faction under the sun."
>>256236708Liu Biao and Yuan Shu are both in fairly central locations. Yuan Shu is harder since he's an autist with no famous characters and everyone hates him but gets a nice income bonus and legitimacy lets you rush to the endgame faster, Liu Biao has a stronger start but can end up at war with Sun Jian early on.
>>256236996As Yuan Shu can i also vassalise that much crap?
>>256236818So why the fuck are you even in this thread?
>>256237258because it's the 3K general, boy
>>256237026Not like I got any rate Pokemon as Cap Cao, I got none of his famous generals. Which one has the most balanced and interesting much of units, me hanics, buildings, and characters?
>>256236996That's still less than 10.
>tfw cao cao'd so well I hit emperor before anyone else reached duke>other two new empires are scripted to hate me but realistically will abdicate pretty quickly>the rest of the factions suck my dick because of prior cao cao'ing>tfw the campaign has become too easy to actually finishTime for bandit queen or a yellow peasant. I'll flip a coin.
>>256237330Sir off-topic posting is against the rules, please leave and kindly take the furries with you.
>>256237208You can vassalize that many factions as anyone. Yuan Shao is just one of the few that can do it from the start of the campaign.
>>256237352Sun Jian. Mercenaries actually act different from other units on the campaign map since they're recruited instantly at full strength like mercs in older games, and cover axemen, archers, and cavalry, so you can give any general regardless of type a balanced force. They're also pretty reliable.He also gets four unique characters-himself, Sun Ce, Sun Quan, and Sun Ren. All of those should be able to last you to the endgame. The only weakness is his start is pretty boring, but you move north and attack other warlords right away if you want.
It is now June. Saemrath, the time of Zenith, subsumes the glades, and all through the forest are found to be in its febrile grip. The Avatar of Kurnous courses eastward this year. Orion's riders range far afield, the latent wanderlust of the Asrai finding expression in the Wild Hunt. The wonders of the Old World give way to the industrial horrors of the darklands; a fell land of unremitting toil and deficiencies of height. A world apart, the Asrai press on beyond the wearying vale at some ineffable impulse of Orion's Avatar. Even those of Godly mien can err- the odyssey to the East is rewarded with poor game indeed; vermin monstrous in their mundanity, each alike to the other from within and without. Base creatures whose treachery and upjumped ambition is overawed only by their cowardice, the inhabitants of the chittering lands are forever locked in grasping and petty struggles. Though scores upon scores are ridden down, the ardor of the hunt is dimmed. Orion falters in his purpose, impossibly far from home. As ever, this and more is divined by Naieth, the chief Soothsayer of the Asrai. Drawn reluctantly from her indulgent observations of the young Prince-and-Emperor, the Prophetess is compelled to answer the forest's need. For there are portents, and there are prophecies.Lord Packs Soon.
>>256237330>>256237671So you aren't actually interested in Total War: Three Kingdoms at all. You just want to post about other completely off-topic Three Kingdoms games?...and you don't think that is weird? It would be the equivalent of frequenting the Red Dead Redemption General just to talk about the Alamo over and over again. You're aware that this is a bannable offense on /vg/ right?
>>256237330not trying to be rude but can you fuck off? create /eagg/ again if you want to only talk about 3K
is there a config file where i can change variables? I want to bump up the rng on recruitment events to make them a sure thing. Don't want to go through a liu bie playthrough without zhao yun
WH3 announcement will be great for driving away the chinks but horrible for bringing back the rats. Med3 when fellow vnderstanders?
How to get lu bu with bandit queen starting
>>256238410rats have never been away, what are you talking about?
>>256238312I believe there is already a mod that guarantees the recruitment events to occur on that disgusting hellhole of a site they call Reddit.I won't sully this general by linking directly to it.
>>256238481Well they're definitely getting bullied by the chinks hard. The only positive thing about this invasion.
>>256238481Rats are here, sure, but not in numbers comparable to the bugs.
I want to get an SSD on my pc so I can go back to playing WH2
>>256238536There is, but it like makes all of the characters you can get appear around the same early turns. So you get Sima Yi on Wei super early and won't have a high enough court position unlocked to make him happy, so he leaves the next turn
>>256238598the chinks were begging yesterday for the ratposting to stop, we control this general from our secret burrows, we are not going anywhere
>new update>portrait mod breaks
>>256236802>setting is shitfalse>the actual game are typically rushed out trashtrue>>256236597I have never played generic weebshit, have no intention of playing generic weebshit but do pay mind to literally any other generic shit.>inb4 seething
>>256238410This is /eagg/ now, get over it.
>>256238410It definitely seems like /twg/ has been moving A LOT slower since 3K's launch. I think we lost a sizeable portion of our regular browsers because they didn't want to deal with all the Chink and /eagg/ shit. I know I took a break from /twg/ for a week and felt markedly better for it. Worst part about it is even after all the Chinks eventually die out (and it does seem like a lot of them have left already after only 2 weeks of incessant shitposting), I'm not sure we'll ever return to what we had until either Warhammer 3 or the next installment of Medieval/Empire.
ONE NOTHING WRONG WITH ME
why can't we just play the total war game were prefer and be happy
>>256238676It doesn't really help with the turn times
>>256238538>>256238552>>256238843Please discuss Total War games or create your own general in which you may discuss whatever video game you'd like. Off-topic posts will be reported.
The US-Austrian war has reached a turning point as US forces haves landed in Spain and Serbia but the territories can’t be returned as the Austrians still hold France and Belgium with large armies still patrol the countryside. A ceasefire was declared but for how long?
>>256238818>Orcs that talk cockney and are actually just spores>"Lets make this as edgy as possible" unanimously agreed by the writing team.>Dwarves are literally giants.>Magic system and lore is complete ass>Chaos gods are kinda neat but the best you get out of none edgy god figures is "The sun god"Its a shit setting, man.
>>256238868Same, I went away a week before 3chinks launch and only came back two days ago. The pace is definitely lower than what I was used to, even during content draught. Don't mind the chinks much myself (as long as they don't post shitty waifus) but it seems they drove away plenty of old regulars.
>mad warhammer boomers
>>256238746Thank you for your service, ratbro. Whenever people get you down, just look in the mirror and remember that at least you aren't a Chink.
>>256239006the absolute state of this general
>>256239068I mean, we went from "Warhammer is a cool setting if edgy as hell" to "LITERAL SHIT SETTING EVEN GOT IS BETTER"
>>256238868im barely posting because im busy playing a game without 10 minute turn timers
>>256238970reddtiors get bored of discussing games so they liek to turn everything into an us vs them tribalism shit hole
>>256239062>Orcs are actually sporesthats 40K lore not fantasy>"Lets make this as edgy as possible" unanimously agreed by the writing team.fantasy was never edgy retard, not even grimdark, thats 40K>Dwarves are literally giants.???>Magic system and lore is complete assopinion>Chaos gods are kinda neat but the best you get out of none edgy god figures is "The sun god"the fuck does this mean
What is /twg/'s opinion on princesses?
>all this slut art>but dunno how to rip it out of games
>>256239208Cool. I'm barely posting because I hate what this general has become and the people who now frequent it. :)
lu lingqi mod WHEN
>>256238428pls help. Do I go get Chang'An?
>get hyped for 3K because everyone here says its the best total war game since forever>play it>its shitdid I get memed
>>256239283They are simply thots to be patrolled
had my fill of 3k for now, what's the consensus on all the wh2 DLC post-tomb kangz?
>>256239210It's painfully apparently that a lot of the new /twg/ browsers came from r/TotalWar.
>>256239460do you like vampires? Y/N?>>256239461most 3K players are unironic redditors, they link reddit trash here all the time its getting annoying
>more time to load battles than TWWThanks CA, at least those guys do banter and shit before battles though right?>>256236449>>256232920CA will add korea to get those guys to play their game too
Are schools worthless?
>>256239460I really enjoyed the Vampire Coast because I really felt like WH2 needed a more gunpowder-heavy faction. Their infamy mechanic and their final campaign battle are actually pretty fun as well. The downsides are that a lot of their units are brokenly OP (see: Necrofex Colossus) and Aranessa Saltspine or whatever the fuck her name is was done very lazily. She doesn't feel like she belongs in the faction at all and her roster seems crazy out of place.
Where is the best place to buy three chinkdoms right now? SCDkey has it for ~$48 but it doesn't list the US as one of the regions, so I'm not sure if that key will activate on steam. Should I just shell out the shekels for full price?
>>256239391>everyone here says its the best total war game since foreverRefer to >>256239461
>>256239718soulless, shogun 2 carpets still the best
>>256239247>fantasy was never edgy retard, not even grimdark, thats 40Kmy dude i like fantasy but they had a species that propagated solely by rape at one point fantasy was nobledark but it still was very very edgy
>"there are too many different unit rosters" is a criticism of warhammer by historyfagsHow can people unironically prefer spearmanii? Is it just being total shit at strategy and tactics that leads them to prefer saminess that they know how to counter?>>256239626VP is great and only that one faggot hates it
Why aren’t you allied with elves
>>256239391It certainly seems that way. I'm burning out 3K far faster than I ever did for other Total War games.Once you realize how half-assed the endgame and certain sub-factions like Han Governors are, it makes you not want to play again. The overwhelming majority of your unique characters will be dead by mid/endgame at which point every single faction is basically identical aside from the Yellow Turbans. The only Yellow Turban who even survives to mid/endgame is Gong Du and he is never a threat, just exists to get steamrolled or be used as a buffer between another kingdom.
does the new godzilla movie actually focus on godzilla this time instead of dumb army dudes. you saw godzilla fighting for like 5 minutes in the last one
>>256239752you asked this last thread and you got answers why are you asking again?
>>256239283Shit in battle but great in the campaign due to their skill tree
>>256239460Badly until we get ARABYIkit is pretty cool though, haven't played lizards because I'm busy playing 3K
I just killed mannfred immedietly and the rest of his army still survived and fought until they had no hp, I thought the rest of the army died when you killed the lord in vampire counts, I just started playing so can anyone explain the crumble mechanic?
>>256239783Dark Elves > High Elves > a massive steaming pile of shit > Wood Elves
>>256239880oh sorry, wrong thread
>>256239934they're stuck at crumbling which makes their stats pitiful and they begin to take a shitload of hp damage but they don't die instantly
>>256240074Well they didn't take any damage, they just fought with full stats for full 10 minutes
How come when I select a unit my cursor disappears for a moment when I target an enemy unit? It's very annoying, and makes it hard to quickly give orders to separate units.
Reminder that they have to pay Grace to go to Reddit but she lurks here for free
>>256239934Literally read the tooltip in-game
>>256239854>like Han Governors areMa Teng and Ma Chao share the same exact voice actor/lines. Han Governors don't even get a unique victory screen for fuck's sake! They get a recolor of Liu Bei's victory screen. You can't even re-establish the Emperor's rule even if you save him from Chang'an as a Han Governor. CA didn't give a flying fuck about putting in any sort of effort to differentiate them.
>>256238996Dunno about that but the load times when you go between campaign and battles is absolutely brutal on my pc for some reason. Can take 5+ minutes.
>>256239460Well there was technically only the vamp coast DLC. As for Skaven, all that shit should've been in the game from the very start. But yea, what can I say some people got bored of Ikit but I enjoyed his campaign immensely probably because I almost never played Skaven before his release. The underempire mechanic where you can literally blow up settlements or make serious cash by infesting them is great in terms of map action and choosing which faction is safest to prey.The Skaven workshop makes already ridiculous units even more OP and the Nuke is just cherry on top. I once deleted 7 whole units in 1 battle when they were grouped up. All in all I enjoyed Ikit more but I was fed up with vamp coast at that point. So if you haven't tried the vampirites you definitely want them first imo.
>>256239765>soullessThose banners sticking in the ground are fucking lit. Get some taste fag
Who is the weirdest faction you've seen claim an emperor seat in your games?
>>256239854use the AI executing less mod
>>256239934Crumbling is just morale with a tiny alteration in that units lose hp at various rates instead of routing on low leadership.Killing the enemy general does give a significant hit to leadership, but if the rest of the army is strong (few losses) and the enemy units had strong leadership to start with, and especially if you are playing on a higher difficulty, the hit is not enough to make them crumble.Mouse over an enemy unit's leadership after you've killed the general or done something else to see what's affecting it.
>>256238683There's one that guarantees you get them but at correct years. Like Sima Yi is supposed to come in between turn 75 and 100 or some shit, all it does is crank up the chance to 100% at turn 75.
>>256240354I dont like the banners standing, they should drop to the floor when a unit loses all of its models, would give a more realistic feeling
>tab out>game crashes with no message>browse /twg/ for 5 minutes without realisingAnyone else experience this in 3K?
>>256240296Yeah, get a damn SSD, having one should be standard in 2019
>>256240412Oh, let me look for that one. Is it in that compilation thread I've seen linked before?
>>256240296That will help But the turn times will always be shit I can't imagine how long it will take when the three games are combined
>>256240393It probably because I recently upped the difficulty to very hard, every other time killing the lord has made the army crumble and die in under a minute,plus if the lord dies everyone dies in the tabletop so I assumed it's the same here
>>256240382In my Liu Bei campaign a random yellow turban rebellion stack took Cao Cao's capital and for some reason it stayed that way until I eventually took it. He simply couldn't be arsed to take it back even though he had armies sitting in close proximity.
>>256240459welcome to the total war experience
>>256240296Yeah, that's pretty fucking bad. I don't think my load times ever go past 60 seconds with an SSD.>>256240534ME in WH3 will be completely unplayable if CA doesn't figure something out.
>>256239894I-I wasnt in last thread, what was the answer?...
>>256240224Of course, I'll just load it up in the tool tip browser in the main menu
>>256240734pirate it you retard and stop buying videogames
>>256240498Yea. It's honestly a must have IMO because it sucks to miss legendary generals completely just because of RNG, but it can also fuck with the balance. Like Cao Cao ends up with 5 total legendary generals by turn 6.
>>256240907that doesn't seem rightAll of his generals (except sima yi I guess) have a chance of appearing that soon, so the mods gives him them that early?
reminder that LU LINGQI'S MODEL WILL NEVER BE MODDED INTO 3KINGDOMS. Requires a ton of work, new rigging, uvmaps, and a shitload of other things.
new to three kingdomscheap units or good units?
>>256241139you can win the game with trash tier units, it doesnt matter, just hammer and anvil
>>256239391Total war games are especially rough on release; usually takes awhile for CA to polish everything up which is especially an issue with 3k since they havent released mod tools for it which is what gives them a lot of replayability in the 1st place
>>256240854I dont like pirating though
Be honest with me, are jezzails going to get nerfed again because of Lotus?
>>2562413092game with "SmartDonkey" coupon code
waifu portrait mods when? I can't stand to look at another 18 year old who looks like a grandma or a tweaker
>>256241139Cheap units. Every time. The only reason to get the more expensive units is for flavor purposes if you want a certain general to have a certain entourage that you think looks cool. Otherwise the basic militia units are so fucking strong they will easily hold their own, especially as you rank them up.
>>256241126meh, who cares, let's see the Modding Tools first.also, her model is secondary, her 2D Profile is more important
What difficulty does twg play in Total warhammer2?I always try to play highest difficulty but I feel like the computer cheats too much
>>256241139Usually any of the dragons you get on the reform trees. But it is often dependent on what buffs your heros have for their retinues as a high level van guard with just peasant raiders can delete units in a single charge
This is $1 in china, what the flying fuck??
>>256241458I could see the Skaven eating another nerf just because of how much people incessantly bitch about MP balance on the CA forums. I really hope they leave Jezzails alone though. Also, buff rat ogres. They are trash atm.
>set up ambush 10 feet away from the enemy>they obviously see it>they fall for it
>>256241676battles on normal or hard, campaign on easy
>>256241707100% agree, rat ogres should not be glass cannons damnit they are line breakers they should not die to 1 volley of arrows and have problems killing basic spearmanii
>>256241676I usually play on hard for a middle-ground because I completely agree that legendary difficult is just endless amounts of bullshit cheating from the AI.They'll have like one city left with barely any income but still manage to throw 4 full stacks at me.
>>256241791ambushes are broken. i've seen ai cav stand around and do nothing, while my archers won't fire to save their goddamn lives
where does lu bu usually go after dong zhou? Want to marry him
>>256239601Wish they woud buff your research rate for reforms otherwise it feels like i am wasting a build slot
>>256241139Some mid tier units are good for formations (mainly infantry), but otherwise cheap is where at. Unit balance is fucked in this game, and it makes an already small roster feel much smaller
>>256239996What about Hylians
>>256241931your archers probably aren't firing because all your other units are too close
>>256241961in my game as bandit queen, he stuck around in the dong successor faction
>Tactical master making BIG BRAINS moves when it comes to the battle map>Drooling retard on the campaign map that can't stop over expanding, wasting resources and getting into 8 v 1 wars SEND HELP
>>256235629Are we gonna get hyped about the greyest of seers just to get shoot down by CA again? It's becoming almost comical.
Does anyone else have an extremely difficult time getting ships to land in Rome II?
>>256241707no jezzails need to have their defensive stats nerfed, too much armor, silver shields, and 30 mdef on something that can be easily protected by trash
>>256242245Yeah it's fucked m8
>>256239996High Elves > Wood Elves > Dark Elves>>256242040sheikah > Hylians > High Elves > Wood Elves > Dark Elves
>>256240593it varies, but you also have to kill heroes too, since im pretty sure that vampire heroes have encourage
nerf towersnerf cavbuff formationsbuff commanders with formations and trebsplay records
>>256241060There's him, Xiaohu Dun, Xiaohu Yuan starts in his recruitment pool, Dian Wei and Xu Chu both have a change to appear from turn 3 or 4.
>>256242205Is going to be a good day when Thanquol gets released, my #1 pick for a lord pack but CA hates him for some reason.
>>256242316are you going to link it or just leave me hanging, buddy? all the files I've found are busted archives, is that a chink thing?
>>256242317It's a shame because the rest of the game is pretty good.
>>256242335Aren’t Sheikah just warrior elves
>>256241676Legendary. I know people meme about the cheats(and yes the AI does cheat) but the game is just too easy even of VH. They're pretty much the same but on legendary everyone has a hard-on for trying to kill you.
>>256242495>that picmy sides fuck you lotus
>2 Warhammer Games>0 LoTR mods>0 TES mods>0 WC mods
>>256242501I'll link it if you prostrate yourself before your chink overlords and declare that you swear your loyalty to the 3kangz and denounce wamham
>>256241676Legendary, but mainly because I've gotten to go at it to play anything else. Playing 3 kings on Hard atm because I'm still learning it
>>256242501Skaven would be destroyed by Khajiits
>>256242287the armor is fine and there is nothing wrong with silver shields, being protected by trash is literally how all skaven machinery work, if you reallly are complaining about that lets nerf all skaven ranged units then
>>256242842>eat rat>die of ultra mega poxamazing
>>256237330then fuck off i'm a DW nigger too but i'm here cause i enjoy total war if you just want to talk about 3K then make eagg again
>>256242842Considering how much of a bunch of junkies Khajiits are, in all due likely they'll end up snorting warpstone and becoming buddies with the Skaven.
>>256243113Khajiit literally eat crack so I’m pretty sure their immune system is not really gonna care
>>256239283>using heroes >not playing as dwarfs and using nothing but siege weapons
>>256242786i can't denounce my dreadfu tho...
Defenders of Earth absolutely rape lower tier infantry. I corner camped and none of the enemy reached melee range with any of my units even though they were all in loose formation.
>>256235629Guys I can't find info on this anywhere. My friend just bought the game so we could coop but it just won't download. It stops at 200 mb everytime when he tries to install. Does anyone know what's up, he has more than twice enough enough space on his ssd.
>>256242467They are probably saving him for something else, not that the rivalries CA implements ever make any sence so it's anyone's guess really, him being in Lustria would have made sence since he has a whole novel set up around Lustria, but still then again CA's rivalries make 0 sence whatsobloodyever
>11th rematchHow to successfully cheese city seige? I need this win. No firearrows. Have trebuchet but their trebuchet kills mine. Mine is level 1. Army is severely outnumber
>>256243271Why would the Khajiit do that? Don’t they hate rats in game like actual cats do
>>256243795Reinstall steam Delete steam folder etc
>>256244124split your army up around the city, make sure your treb is near a corner. When the battle starts, determine where the treb is, then move your army else where. It's got a narrow field of fire and you can safety ignore it
>>256244469my new strat is run around wasting those trebuchet ammo
>>256242316>Ancilliary: Titjob Specialist>"to be good at some things means you have to be bad."
Just won my first campaign as Cao Cao. Took me 43 hours and was a lot of fun.Where do I go from here? Kinda want to play as the Bandit Queen or maybe Kong Ron. What's a good start to turtle and build a strong economy without expanding much?Also, is there any way to speed up reforms?
>>256244269He already went through all that, other games install fine.
>>256241458You can always go to the forum and argue with the faggot about it. It's the only way to deal with this shit really
>>256244882Yuan ShaoHis Captain mechanic is a lot of funbe sure to install a 15TPY mod or he'll die of old age before you have conquered the North
>>256244236Khajiits mostly hate the Dunmer for enslaving them and to some degree the Argonians because fantastic racism and whathaveyou, I don't remember ever being a ratfolk race in the elder scrolls, there's the Akaviri serpent people and the rest are all elfs and humans. On the other side of the coin basically everyone hates the Khajiits because they have a tendendency to consume moonsugar, skooma and steal stuff, for example in some places they can't even set foot inside cities.
>Heroic Siege Defensenever got this screen before, pretty neat. Why are the illustrations so much cooler than the actual models, I wish my troops had armour as nice as thisI hope they bring back armour smi
why is the river in the middle of the map to the north so yellow? the one in the south is blue, is it just my monitor?
When are we getting feet reloading animations for crossbowmen?>As a result of the increasing effectiveness of iron weapons and armour, shields and axes became less common. The efficiency of crossbows, however, outpaced any progress in defensive armour. It was considered a common occurrence in ancient China for commoners or peasants to kill a lord with a well aimed crossbow bolt, regardless of whatever armour he might have been wearing at the time.
>>256245164>I hope they bring back armour smiOH NO SOMEONE KILLED THE COMMANDER
>>256239601Yes because it'll make your weaker generals stronger, but then they'll be dis satisfied with their position in court. I also wish schools boosted reform rate. Since Reforma seem pretty slow.
>>256245181>why is the river in the middle of the map to the north so yellow?no idea, not like it's called the Yellow River or anything>the one in the south is bluebecause of the Soil, Yellow River flows through the sandy north close to the Gobi desert, and the soil in northern China is also very yellow-ish and sandy, meanwhile the South has less sand and clay in it's soil and more actual rock, so the river stays clearer.
>>256245181>why is the yellow river yellow ? beats me
>>256239765>soullessWell, it is China
>>256245480>>256245492>the water is actually yellow!are you guys trying to pull a fast one on me
>>256245317>>256245164I meant to post"I hope they bring back armour smithies visually upgrading your troops" but the auto post cut me off
>>256241593Militia don't get formations, so checkmate for fun. But yeah militia are too effective for their cost.
>>256245552are you a dunce?there are yellow rivers all over the world, especially in deserty- and sandstony regions
>>256244004yeah they are probably saving him for something else, one of the reasons I think Thanquol is not in the game yet is because he as a lord pack doesn't bring units like Ikit or Throt but he is too important and unique to be included as FLC, he is in limbo basically.and yes CA rivalries don't make sense, they just use that as an excuse for some reason.
>>25624298570 armor is 50% damage reduction, with 55% block rating, meaning that theyll only 30% damage from small arms fired, and also considering that its easy for skaven to deny charge bonus, with 30 mdef and any cav that isnt chaos knight tier has ~30 matk or lower, which means that theyll only take 15% melee damage, these are damage defensive values for a unit that is essentially an artillery piece, that you can then defend with more chaff units. so this unit can only be countered by something fast, high matk, and ap damage, which are heavy cav, which are units you should be shooting at with jezzails, and since they have shield breaker they can take out any heavy cav fairly quickly
and the Yangtze is not entirely blue, it is actually mostly green
>>256245552holy shit, the water is actually yellow
>>256245348>I also wish schools boosted reform rate.This so much. Also trade shouldn't become so useless in late game. I could only do 4/8 trade routes since there were so few factions left and even fewer I wasn't at war with.Maybe allow trade outside the map or between your own cities or something.Would also be cool if you could broker deals between vassals so they trade territories so the map looks less patchy in the end.
>>256245552>>256245893China is magical place
>>256245348By the late game you should be running the final piety assignment mixed with food production boosts so it's not much a problem.

>>256246496That looks manmade, the lines are way too perfect.
>>256245992More reason to keep vassals then, would be nice to be able to create vassals out of admins to fight corruption and generate a trade partner.
>>256246594https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geology_of_Chinaits fucking real, what the fuck
>>256245992>Maybe allow trade outside the mapwould be neat, like trade points we had in empire-shogun, but alas without boats that is not possiblethey could do a similar thing but instead of sea routes you gwt Border Checkpoints which you can garrison with an army, and depending on it's size you get more trade income from controlling that point, perhaps add a little building chain to the point.Xiognu give Horse bonusKoreans give Iron Nanyue give spices and rice

>>256247583get the tower nerf mod, it changed my game completelythey go from being the deciding force of any siege battle to minor nuisances(as 4-5 archers in a tower should be)also doesn't turn every defense in an EZ win
>>256247610>tfw no big titted han dynasty wife
>>256247781The problem with nerfing towers is that sieges sort of become irrelevant. Garrison and walls aren't enough a defence vs a fulls stack, because CA sucks at designing sieges. The towers are a crutch, but they're the only reason sieges actually favour the defender
what reform path is most important to go for first on cao cao
>>256247610>implying your time is worth jack shit
>>256248213>Garrison and walls aren't enough a defence vs a fulls stackthey can put up quite a fight with admin garrison, and clutch victories are still possible, but not as simple as holding the attackers infront of the towers anymorethe map geometry still favours the defender, and chokepoints can fuck you up with how effective even Ji Militia is at holding ground, but you're not guaranteed to lose 60% of your force to tower fire anymore
>>256248526Without towers though, we return to sieges were, once again, its better to abandon the walls and turtle in the streets, which is ridiculous. Towers at least give me incentive to hold the walls
Towers are fineThey give you an actual advantage as defender and make it harder as the attacker
>>256248213Towers can be made less effective without making them useless
>>256242043I'm pretty sure archers are bugged in ambushes. They need to be manually ordered to fire every target
>>256248718why would you abandon the walls? you are actually encouraged to hold the walls when the towers are weaker because the interior towers won't do anywhere enough damage to advancing troopsAnd if your enemies catches one of your towns without a peoper garrison in it, should you really be allowed to keep ir just by cheesing his full stack with OP towers?
>>256247583What battle difficulty?I've had the AI burn down towers that were in their way.
why are skaven so cute? is it the way they talk? or because they are rats?
>>256249123it's due to your mental illness
>>256248920Just tested it out. Seems you're correct. My bad anon.
>Darren wrote a positive review for Three Kingdoms Total WartWhat the fuck?! How did they buy off Darren?
>>256248928Because being able to narrow down what units can fight you via chokepoints is stupidly powerful, way more powerful then towers unless they are OP mg42 towers. So long as infantry can auto climb walls, there's no point to holding them because your troops will be completely overwhelmed by the sheer number of troops that can scale walls
>>256247583How is there 4 Zhuge Liangs in this battle?! Is this a trick of Sima Yi?!
>>256249384>Three Kingdoms Total Wartdisgusting
I'm playing Chow ChowDo I go North and Kill off Liu Bei and Kong RongFar North and kill off Yuan ShaoGo south and start cleaning up the Han territory before Sun JianOr East and Kill Liu Bei and Yuan ShuAlso unrelated, does anyone have a link for an article or youtube video with all the trailers/announcements from E3?I missed it and R E D D I T doesn't have one as far as I can tell
>Defenders of Earth burning down all my towersGood thing they absolutely annihilated everything.
>>256248842They need to feel more threatening visually. A small cloud of arrows instead of sniper shots.
>>256249401Yea I don't like that at all. They should get some kind of penalty for that like making them tired or something. Do they get any penalty for climbing the walls like that?
>>256249573Go south and take the Chen farmland, then go east and take the walled settlment, then beat up Tao fuckers as part of the story. Then focus on going south while being friends with Lie Bei, otherwise Sun Jian will eat everything. Proxy War Yuan Shao against some big, like Yuan Shu or Lie Bei to hold him up for a while. Make friends with Sun Jian, then go north
>>256249573Go north and take Pencheng first, then kill Tao Qian
I'm sorry, but what the FUCK is on his head?
>>256249587I think exhaustion penalties but that's it. Shogun 2 did it alright, where the unit would take casualties as it climbed, but its still a shitty system
>>256249479It's custom battle.
I can marry and divorce and remarry right? Like I marry Zhang Fei, take him, then divorce him and find Lu Bu. They won't leave my faction right?
>>256247096Happens to me everytime I try Cao Cao, which turns mid/late game into a slog. Liu Bei also turns into carnercerous tumour that gets rid of all independent lords of the realm though he won't declare war on you.
>>256235629Does anyone still remember?
>Everyone who likes total war has left>3chinks is boring as shit>there are only chinamen here>and ratfags>after Thrones flopping and the fantasy games selling record amounts there is no hope for a new history game this decade I just want Attila 2.0 in a different time period.
>>256251184>there is no hope for a new history game this decadeYes, weeb nigger bastard, they probably won't release another historical TW in the next 6 months.
>>256247116The Lilimoth? Yeah they were in Black marsh, but I think either the Argonians or the marshes claimed them, they were some kind of fox people. The giant rats of TES live mostly in sewers and since Elswyr is mostly arid deserts and jungles I don't think the Khajiit have much interactions with rodents.
>>256251184>attila 2.0The fuck do you think 3 kings is? Just play records if you don't like fantasy shit
>>256249123Their ratty appereance and comical disposition makes them likeable despite the fact in reality they are cruel and scheming creatures.
I don't get where I am supposed to do as my starting moves as Yuan Shu, I feel like I sit around waiting too much in the early game as legendary. His capital seems highly vulnerable, should I just be rushing Tier 4 and trading for the two food? or do I head east to for Chen to cover the food and get a trade deal with the Cao Cao while rushing t4 settlement and then doing the Liu Bao storyline to expand south?
In a sea of drab/mediocre armor, the Youxia have top tier armor. Armor in robes will always be sexy as fuck. Now if only they robes were in colors outside piss yellow. And for most infantry to have this armor.

he has no self awareness>drawkiting=fun gameplay>using a one-dimensional gimmick character that is really blatant at what it's going to do and can be dodged due to how slow he is and his long spell ramp=toxic
>>256252537Ah shit forgot my pic.
>>256251586It plays nothing like it you squinty eyed fuck, go back to posting your shitty CG waifus.
>>256251184At least we might have Wh3 by this time next year...
>>256249587They do get exhaustion, the problem is walls are retarded to hold because your units eventually get surrounded. You also can't get use archers very well because they get one, maybe two volleys off before they're at the walls.
>>256252686>a ten million year windup spell with a massive blindingly obvious indicator is somehow undodgeable cancer that MUST be nerfed>drawkiting is perfectly fine though gaiseFUCK mp and FUCK elfniggers
>>256252802That's not history lad. Warhams 3 could be good as it has Orges and Chorfs but I want a good history game. Chances are they'll see 3chinks success and give the future game the same weightlessness to combat.
>army gets fucked by towers during a siege>quit>fags think this is better than memehammerBut hey it's more than one wall right?
>>256252661why the fuck would anyone believe in vertical striations
>>256252686Seriously, how the fuck is Kroak an issue?He can get sniped by range and spells because of his slow speed and limited cast range and his spells take forever to go off along with being really apparent with what you're doing and can just dodge the infantry lines because lizardmen are a slow faction
>>256253006Warhammer has really fun battles sometimes, but the campaign is so mind-numbingly boring it's a drain to play.
>>256252903What about fucking elves?
What's an end game stack for Rome in Rome 2 look like? To be honest I can't find much reason to use anything other than praetorians/eagle cohort, and maybe a few cav/artillery.
>>256252854You should be able to put archers inside the towers like in Age of Empires
>>256249936looks like a lunch boxvery practical
>>256236597Warhammer (not Age of Smegmar) is the best generic fantasy (elves, dwarves, magic n shit) setting.
>>256253250basically, heavy infantry spam and a few cav to mop up. It's pretty braindead because roman troops are so good
>>256253043I kinda understand the one wall memery, but at the same time, it's not like it's that common that you attack more than one wall anyway. GCCM proves that what warhammer desperately needs is better and unique siege maps, because just that small sprinkling of variety massively improves things
Liu Bei was nothing if not determined. He was a man who never let loss keep him down. He found and exploited opportunities and never let a chance slip through his fingers. He was a man of very strong character, who inspired people to follow him through thick and thin. He had many followers who stuck with him after countless losses, and this ability to cultivate loyalty was truly remarkable. On his determination and charisma alone, he managed to survive the chaos that claimed far more talented men and became one of the last men standing.But that’s about all the good to say about him. As a commander, he was sub-par. While he experienced success against minor foes early in his life, Liu Bei was defeated time and time again by uncounted generals. He was knocked back and forth all across China, usually with no more effort than swatting a fly. Though he held significant territory for a few months in 215, he was reduced to only a handful of commanderies just eight years later. His only significant military victories were the work of Pang Tong and Fa Zheng, and without them he was nothing.Liu Bei was also a man with absolutely no morals whatsoever. He betrayed his superiors and allies time and time again. He defected from Gongsun Zan to Tao Qian (194), then betrayed his alliance with Lü Bu (198), revolted against Cao Cao (199), abandoned Yuan Shao (200), turned on Liu Zhang (212-214), and violated Sun Quan’s trust many times. He abandoned his family to his enemies on four separate occasions (196, 198, 200, and 208), even leaving his infant son to the mercy of his worst enemy. He plundered Chengdu, he allowed his followers to kill, rape, and steal as they wished, and he murdered his own adopted son because he found him inconvenient. He was a man with no loyalty to anyone but himself. He was greedy, treacherous, selfish, and quite simply evil.It is simply amazing that a man like Liu Bei became the hero of the story because by all rights, he should be the villain.
>>256253750Braindead it might be, but I'll admit I have a lot of fun slow marching 3,000 praetorian guard across the map to butcher some barbarians.
>>256251184Fuck off. Have sex.
>>256252691Looks like shit. Heavy Ji and heavy crossbowmen have the coolest armor.
>>256253909Cao Cao was right.

>>256251184lol I hope history dies so fags like you stop shitting up this franchise any more than it deserves to be
>>256254260Get fucked>>256251184I'm playing rome 2 my dude.
>tfw killing unbreakable units down to the last manIt's always sort of sad watching units form a circle and then slowly watch the circle get smaller and smaller as everyone dies.
>>256254260Rich coming from a chink.>>256254509>Rome 2 Not really my jam, I keep coming back to playing desert kingdoms in Attila.
>>256250579They'll stay in your faction as long as their satisfaction doesn't drop too low.
>>256254649Fair. Attila is good mechanically but I'm not much of a fan of the time period. Medieval or mongol invasion era with attila mechanics would be great.
>>256253268That would solve the tower issue easily. No archers garrisoned there? No tower shots. The archers in the tower would give them a more universal firing arc and additional protection. Towers overlooking ladders = Murder spree
>>256254509God this game is hideous. How the fuck did CA manage to follow up something as beautiful as Shogun 2 with this grotesque mess.
>>256254819Attila isn't even mechanically that good. The game suffers from a lot of deterministic systems. Corruption was absolutely dreadful before it got nerfed, but it also has the sanitation on top of climate system alongside public order and spreading your religion. Too much going on in the campaign map, on top of things like the enemy retreating three turns away from you, or the fact that hun horse archers outranged other archers.
Playing as Naggarond on vanilla what is going on

Fuck history shit (especially chingchong wannabe-history), it kills factions variety.Next Total War after WH3 should be 40k.
Is everyone in 3K schizophrenic or is my campaign fucked?They keep vassalizing/liberating each other in turns like it's a fucking game of musical chairs. Ignore me and don't want anything to do with me.Declaring war on each other while each side has half the map vassalized, then swap vassals and making peace without much territories being traded around.Liu Bei has vassalized Cao Cao, Kong Rong and Sun Jian, only to liberate them, go to war with them then vassalize them again and repeat the process. This is utter madness as I watch from the side and build up my forces.
>>256251184The next total war probably will be a setting where CA can keep shoving warrior womances & waifoos down our throats.
>>256255626Bitch no, it's going to be LOTR or dragon age. Hell, imagine what a MINECRAFT TOTAL WAR might end up like...
>>256255672You know it was called a period of Chaos for a reason, right anon?
>>256255626It most likely wouldn't work with the total war formula as units in 40k operate in loose formations instead of blobs or perfect square formations of infantry at squad sized units instead of large formations. Still the sheer variety of units would make for such scummy DLC policies that the final game would end up around 1500 CAD, you could make 1 DLC just with the varieties of Leman Russ tanks.And yeah fuck history shit.
Darren is a fucking pathetic cunt who sold his souls to CA. I was expecting an honest review. He was payed for a positive impression

>>256258348Why? I've enjoyed WH1/2 for years and now I'm enjoying 3K. Don't understand why people formed cliques that started to shit on each other.

>>256264403There’s a little green triangle in the diplomacy screen for the AI. It’s colour ranges from green to orange, red when a war. It shows you how much of a threat they currently are towards you. If it’s orange they’re probably going to declare war on their turn. Let’s you know who’s going to try and fuck you. More important, if you bring the colour down, to yellow or green, they won’t declare on you. As Sun Jian, I’ve been Cao Cao little gifts every turn or two to bring him from orange back down to green so I don’t have to fight him (yet). Saved me from having him bring 3 coalition allies to come fuck me up. Anyway, pay attention to it every turn and diplomacy becomes a lot easier.

How do you defend against civil war in Rome 2? Or is it just something that's supposed to happen every 60 turns or so? As far as I could tell I was doing great, public order was maxed out all over, and I had high approval ratings.

Just reinstalled Attilawhat should I do
In 3K is it supposed to be impossible to catch an army that is running around raiding in my territory? I never have enough movement to catch them after they retreat. What am I missing?
>players will stop playing before the mod tools are even released>mod potential of the game is ruinedBravo, CA.
>>256267406Uninstall and play Shogun 2
>>256267353because it's a zero effort way to gain (you)s and no matter what gives you chances to shitpost
>>256241707And buff cold one knights.
>>256267460>what am I missingNothing. It’s fucked. we all use the backspace exploit to deal with it. Just before your army makes contact with the enemy and initiates battle, hit back space to cancel movement. This let’s you stop inside their zone of control. On their turn they’ll be inside your zone of control and can’t move without attacking you. On your next turn you can attack them, and if they retreat you’ll have all your movement to catch them. It’s fucked.
>>256267837That is not an exploit though
How do I not get my shit pushed in as Huang Shao?
>>256267460Literally use ambush. Jesus fucking christ this is how you always catch force marching armies, even in Warhammer 2 where the AI will always try to out distance you.

You'll get no meaningful answers in this place since half the people here don't even play 3K or let alone TW in general.
>>256267837Oh ok thanks for the tip. It's pretty strange how CA could fuck up something that basic.
>>256269069You're supposed to ambush them.
>>256268184I've never had that problem in total war games.
>>256255672is probably Cao Cao or Yuan Shu pulling the strings, those scheming cunts love chaos
>>256269202You also have to take into account some mind games. Simply chasing the AI on the campaign with the intent to attack it will be fruitless since it will always know how much movement points you have.However, baiting it to move somewhere you want by pretending to disengage almost always works i.e. purposely leaving an undefended settlement nearby while you wait in ambush.
>>256267837ty anon, have a putin
>>256268576>half the people here don't even play 3K or let alone TW in generalNah. It's just that Warhammer is much more liked here than 3chinks. Everyone was saying it early on and prior to 3K's release that they didn't agree that CA pours resources into a game like this instead of hastening Warhammer TW 3
whats the best way to use the polybolos in rome 2? Seems like it would be good for anti cav, I'm guessing.
>>256257240No rest for the ratfags, no retreat for the /eagg/
>>256267941I reckon it is, but even if it isn’t it’s counter-intuitive as fuck. You can’t move inside an enemy’s zone of control unless you click to attack them. If you sit on the edge of their’s, they’ll be on the edge of yours and they’ll still be able to move. So the only way you end up in the situation I mentioned is if you click to attack them then slam backspace in the narrow between entering the ZoC and initiating battle. Hardly something obvious and easy to figure out.
>people complaining about catching forced marching armies being hard>not having 1 or 2 additional armies on stand byLet me guess, you're also the same fags saying that capturing Lahmia as Khalida is fucking hard because you all force yourselves to besiege it with only one army, despite the fact that you can already raise 1 additional tomb king during that time.
>>256267460After a few turns they start taking attrition, and if you have built your settlements well enough you can just let them slowly die as they don't have an army to siege you.
>>256265752>Cao Ahman! Show yourself!>but I'm right here..>Cao Ahman! You spineless coward, step forward and fight me!>but I'm right here you you double Xiognu!
>>256265752>this guy keeps appearing in my court with new shit he pillaged from other lords>hire him, take his shit and fire him as I've done a hundred times already>he's in his fifties and he's still hoping
>>256269918>1 or 2 extra stacks defending >at the start of the game where you can barely afford oneYeah, we get that you love the game. But you don’t need to defend every single aspect of it. Being able to retreat in forced march is completely shite and slows the game down to a crawl.
>>256270285Anon, you do realize you can split away your retinue from your main army right? That's the entire purpose of retinues in the first place. It's a bandaid to people complaining since Rome 2 that you can't split your armies. If you're find it so hard to catch an enemy, simply detach a vanguard retinue with lots of cav since they more movement points. Use the other slower army to bait the AI into wasting his movement points, then use the vanguard to initiate the battle, with your main army nearby reinforcing them.
>>256270285Also, I'm saying this for Total War as a whole. It's so fucking mind boggling how people here keep bitching about the AI force marching away from your army for fucking years, and then it turns out they're just mindlessly chasing the AI with ONE army. I've seen it before with Attila, I've seen it before with Warhammer, and now I'm seeing it again with 3K and people still can't adapt to basic cat and mouse
>>256270285I agree, retreat on marching stance should be impossibleI would go even further and add a 30% chance to ambush on Marching Stance not only that, but in difficult terrain forced march should also cause attritionSun Tzu even says that if you force march your army through uncertain ground you should expect 1 out of 3 to be lost to various causes.
>>256245210Seems odd that the West and East had such different approaches, the Greeks had heavy crossbows for sieges but just made armour and shields heavier in response whilst they seem to have been abandoned to a degree in the East.
So lemme get this straightLu Bu>'muh waifu' and a compulsive liarLiu Bei>'good guy' that does a bunch of evil shitYuan Shao>'good guy' that is actually really imcompetentCao Cao>schemer that keeps getting away with itSun Jian>the actual best bro of the romance that gets murdered early on
>>256270508>>256270724>>256270285THIS. honestly having to chase after them with a superior army is annoying as fuck, but it's a strategy game for fuck's sake, you have to outmaneuver them
>>256248920I think they auto fire during ambushes only when they are in the open. As soon as they are hidden they don't fire at will even if battle is already going. What really sucks about ambushes is that the enemy force will not simply match through to the end it you don't engage. I ambushed a vastly superior force (my ambush was more of an attempt to hide my army that was out of position) and thought I'd let half their army pass through before engaging. They had lots of cavalry in the front and many weakened infantry and only one hero in the back.Turns out if you don't engage, the enemy army will march for a bit and then just stop and form up a bit, facing the forrests. I won anyway because my trebs got insanely lucky and instagibbed their vanguard and champion in the first shot, leaving me to deal with only a strategist and a shakened force. It makes sense from a realistic pov that an army won't just march through and then not return if parts of it are attacked. But it should be an option. Kinda like they're saving their own skin and leaving a few men behind to cover the retreat or whatever.
>>256270882you forgotCao Cao>did nothing wrong
>>256245210>>256270875western civilization just seems to have steel/iron/bronze quality surpassing anyone else. Late medieval crossbow needed a windlass to properly cock and it was barely enough.
>>256270882>Sun Jian>broSun Jian singlehandedly crashed the Coalition by running off with the Imperial Seal, his treason and vain ambition killed him.>Cao Caoone of the few people who could see through the chaos of the dissolving Han Dynasy and with cold calculation was able to come out on top>Yuan ShaoA noble who thought he could just take over the Han Empire wholesale with his Name alone>Liu Beia bonafide Usurper who was able to fool a lot of people with talk alonehis actions speak for themself>Lu Bua naive wannabe hero who found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time, not as much a traitor as everyone continuously tried to get rid of him
>>256270508Honestly, I take engaging the AI on the campaign map with the same approach to chess. It's simply not about attacking and defending. You have to figure out ways where you can trap or put the AI's army into in disadvantageous position. If the AI has 3 doomstacks coming for you. Try to use a decoy army that could split them up so that your main force could engage one army at a time, especially if certain mechanics like lightning strike or night battles are unavailable. Also, there is no dishonor in ambushes. If the enemy is hard to catch, try other means of trapping him, even if it means endangering one of your settlements. That said, yeah forced march retreat should be disabled.
>>256271198It was simply adaptation to what kind of armies they fought at the time. The chinese needed a superior alternative to the bow but not something that was hard to crank and reload, because their steppe enemies were very agile but lightly armored.Meanwhile in the west, most armies where heavily armored but moved in dense formations. There was no need for a mobile weapon.
>forced march>ok guys we're gonna march really hard and fast k>srs guys, no stopping or taking a shit>sir there is an enemy army approaching>just march away lmaoI don't see the issue with retreating from forced march. The army is already at full speed, why should it not get away from an army in regular configuration?
>>256271287>Sun Jian singlehandedly crashed the Coalition by running off with the Imperial Seal, his treason and vain ambition killed him.Yuan Shao crashed his own coalition by having Liu Baio attack Sun Jian over piece of rock. thus emboldening the Dong Besides that didn't really happen at all.
>>256271198that's because european crossbows were built to a different design philosophy, the cross-bow was strong but short, so it had to be cocked by windlass, especially the later arbalest with a metal bar.But the Chinese Crossbow was more like an actual Cross-Bow, as it was basically a recurve bow mounted on a wooden frame that allowed the string to be locked in place, and as such the chinese crossbow was actually just a very powerful recurve bow firing actual arrows.Just as English Longbows outranged French crossbows, Han Crossbows were so powerful they outranged the Xiognu Recurve Bows, because in the end they are just bows so strong noone but a master archer could fire them effectively
>>256271673Supplies should affect speed and with low supplies you shouldn't be able to retreat from a forced march.
3K create-a-faction feature when?
who is the most fun yellow turban?
>>256271751>Yuan Shao crashed his own coalition by having Liu Baio attack Sun Jian over piece of rockthe imperial regalia was more important than the Emperor himself, Sun Jian trying to steal it was worse treason than Dong Zhuo had committed.if you read the book you would see that Sun Jian took the seal with the absolute intention to start his own Dynasty.Yuan Shao gave Sun Jian the opportunity to relinquish the Seal, only after Sun Jian had made clear he would keep it was Liu Biao ordered to take action.
>>256272024What made Yuan Shao more deserving?
>>256271898I want the option to rename my factionat least give me an event with 3 naming options available when I reach Duchy, Kingdom and Emperor respectively
Another 3K annoyance, why can they force me to fight on the siege map? I have a settlement besieged, the garrison attacks me, ok so they should be leaving the settlement then. Nope they are just forcing me to try and take the town when I wanted to starve them out. Wtf is this?
>>256271862>the chinese mastered the art of crossbow spam
>>256272024Sun Jian actually gave him the seal in real life, right? I thought that was how Yuan Shao proclaimed himself emperor before being taken down by Cao Cao and Liu Bei
What if there was a supply unit, kinda like the FOB or supply trucks in Wargame?The unit would not be able to fight but would allow ranged units to resupply their ammo during a battle. It could take two unit slots or slow down the army for balance. In battle it would be really slow, like a ram, and easy to set on fire. In an area around it, troops could resupply their ammo.
>>256272125Yuan Shao didn't want it for himself(presumably), he wanted it for the Coalition, with the Seal in hand they could have requested more official support and retaken Changan.The likes of Ma Teng and Liu Yan would have been called into action and threatened Changan from the vulnerable rear
>>256272154Just fall back to the corner of the map away from the towers, they have to attack you if they initiated, even on the siege map.
>>256272220Sun Jian gave Yuan Shu the seal because he was an officer under Yuan Shu's command, yeah.
>>256272154What?The attacking garrison always fights me on a field. Post screenshots.
>>256271673I feel like retreating in forced march should cost you a huge amount of military resources. Like, your eating attention next turn unless you have an ungodly amount of supplies.
>>256272220Yuan Shao never got the Seal, Sun Ce brought the seal to Yuan Shu, so Yuan Shu would help him against Liu Biao.Yuan Shu then proclaimed himself Emperor with the Seal.Note that the Seal was the essence of Emperorship, it predated the Han Empire and was the physical manifestation of the Mandate of Heaven.The piece of Jade it was carved from was considered holy before it even became the seal
>>256272261That doesn't sound fun at all and tw battles are too fast to need resupply
>>256272472military supplies in general should be easier to lose, or at least scale with how many troops you have in your army. It would give you a reason to try to go for smaller, more elite forces, or at least build those military supply buildings.||Multiple armies should also eat into supplies faster so stack spam actually has a consequence.||
>>256272439I don't have any but I'll try to remember next time.
>>256272635I just hate to have my trebs run out of ammo and then the guys are just sitting there. I know it's a balance thing but why not have a way around it at the cost of having even fewer fighting men?
>>256267307Hi Med 2 faggot cut your throat you Turkish roach.
>>256272642>>256272261Rotk 11 had a mechanic where you could send Officers out on the map with a supply train and use it to resupply your armies in the fieldwould be a neat ability to resupply besieging armies though I guess the field battles are not grand enough to warrant FOBs
This mode is fun, until it isn't.
>>256271673It makes sense but it can lead to gimmicky AI bullshit where they are able to constantly outrun you. The worst thing is that if you box them in with other armies they can still retreat through those armies. Zones of control (city or enemy army) should halt a retreat and require the retreat to go around it.>>256270724I've boxed them in, they are allowed to pass through one of your army's area of control when fleeing. >>256248920Are you making sure you enable fire at will? Because in an ambush they turn off fire at will for every unit. You have to re-enable it.
>>256272642I don't know about you but military supplies are already pretty brutal>-30 supplies per turn on hostile environment>-90+ supplies upon using forced marchThere's also shit like hazardous terrain like winter, mountains and valleys that makes movement really slow and you'll be suffering attrition in less than 4 turns. This reminds me of trying to invade Nehekara and you're forced to encamp every turn because you can't move an inch without suffering attrition.
>>256271945What the fuck? is that really Yuan Shu's victory campaign screen? He has the same exact palette swap as all the Han Governors?How fucking lazy is CA seriously, it can't be that expensive to request 3-4 extra drawings from your resident artist.
>>256273073Shit really? I guess autistically building garrisons in all my border territories and getting a massive food surplus pays off.
>>256273020When I chase them into a corner, I usually just set up an ambush. Since ai can't into ambush they walk in every time. Maybe there should be a way to stop them from retreating by using spies. Also what the fuck is up with spies, why can't I recall them? I had one infiltrate an army and when I eventually met the army in the field, the spy was killed in battle. Imo he should immediately rout or stay in the enemy army but have a button to betray them and join your force during rts battles.
>>256273073difficult terrain should give you attrition on forced march anyway.Pressing your troops through snowy mountains and forests is bound to see some men fall by the wayside.
>>256273264You probably don't notice it because you're always fighting on your own turf. But try going on an immigration campaign to the south. Shit is fucking brutal because even if you start settling some of the ruins there, there, you won't have buildings that have enough food reserves so you will still see some supply drain even in your own territories. The mountain passes between Cao Cao and Sun Jian especially can result in some pretty brutal border skirmishes because it's incredibly hard to navigate and there are only mines in there, so not a lot of farming.
>late game>clearly remember going through my list of officers and not seeing anyone super special >few turns later>Xiahou Yuan, Zhou Yu, and Xu Chu joined my army without me noticingit probably got covered in all the notifications I get but it would been nice to know earlier instead of a generic recruit message. too bad they're all old as shit and are underleveled so they'll die soon anyway
>>256273752That's actually pretty cool.
>>256270508>>256270995>>256271409These are fair points. I still don't think they should be able to outrun you in your own territory forever, but you guys are right it's a strategy game.
>>256271198The western crossbows had the limitation of powerstroke and shooting smaller bolts (less stable in long flight).:https://youtu.be/3D64oZCHAnsThat's not the case with chinese crossbows that were literally bows mounted on a stock.
>>256270508>If you're find it so hard to catch an enemy, simply detach a vanguard retinue with lots of cav since they more movement points. fuck I feel so retarded for never thinking of this
How long till people procreate?I married Cao Pi to the bandit lady and Cao Ang to Cao Rens widow. Some other Cao Shit married some Kong Ron woman but neither of them produced any offspring in 20 or so turns.
>>256251184I'm still playing Medieval 2, now there's mod that turn it into M&B: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rh81otImjvk
>>256257240There are racists "warhammer fans" here literally and unironically self-identified as "homosexual rats" while keep insulting, dehumanizing Chinese and any other people who dislike them, and spamming those disgusting ratporns sometime like no tomorrow. You can't possibly so naive to expect (((them))) would have changed here, 4chan is renown as cesspool weebsite for a good reason.
>>256274281You're comparing them purely to Medieval crossbows, which, given how everyone and their mum had a castle, were naturally optimised for sieges, hence the short prods to allow use in arrow slits and on densely packed walls.Earlier European crossbows like the Roman or Greek ones, had both a long draw length and composite prods, just like the Chinese ones did.I highly doubt the Chinese lack of interest in shields or heavy armour (if true) was caused simply by crossbow technology, the Greek gastraphetes was extremely powerful for it's time, it was cocked with the operator's bodyweight.
>Yuan Shao’s unique ability gives every unit in a massive area 50 morale passively, making almost any unit unbreakable.So have you guys taken the Yuanpill yet?
>>2562572403K has one major issue - it's about chinks.
>>256274938Which is why (You) are the issue, not the game.
>>256275002The game could be really good, if not for chinks. I hope CA make a game with similar mechanics but in a proper setting.
What if CA does elder scrolls Total War
>>256274806I have a grudge against him since he broke the nap, declared war and send a guerilla army into my back line while my main force was busy dealing with his stacks. My trusted vassal Kong Zhuo saved me by reinforcing my garrisons and killing the invading army and then aided me in the conquest of Yuan Shaos entire territory, despite having only one county. I rewarded him with protection and guaranteed him autonomy, and the tiny nation of Kong Zhuo prospered for many years deep in the heart of my empire. Until he died of old age and his daughter broke our trade agreement, dishonoring not only me but also her father's legacy. Annexation came swift and without warning and thus the end of their faction. But at least they survived Yuan Shao the traitor by many years. I will kill that dog where ever I find him.
>>256275208Fuck off, Todd.
>>256275203i concur. in an ancient greek setting, perhaps slightly mythical, the game would actually be playable. achilles dueling hector, etc
Never making the mistake of letting Wu do it's own thing again. 20-30 turns, I finally start gaining ground against them after clearing out their fuckton of deathstacks, holy shit.
>>256275279You know you Romans with Magic
>>256274764>Earlier European crossbows like the Roman or Greek onesbut romans and greeks had shite bows to begin with since they didn't have much of a bowman culture
>>256274938the one major issue is your pathological fear of Chyna
>>256274806yuans biggest strength is his Captain mechanic that allows you to recruit full stacks for a fraction of the regular pricea full retinue costs just 1000 coins, when a single sword militia would cost you 400+
>>256275359just keep his armies busy and the Yellow Turbans will start eating his settlements
>yuanigger destroying your campaign every time
>>256272262Ma Teng was part of the coalition in the books, which you are referencing specifically.
>>256275461They both used auxillaries from cultures that did. Scythians were amongst the first people to use composite bows and the Greeks had regular contact with them via the Black Sea.
>>256275759Ma Teng was part of the Coalition, but he didn't actually do shit and mainly bided his time
>>256274806In my first campaign I played Gongsun Zan and bitch slapped three of his full stacks with one army in two turns, captured him, then executed him. He's a punk.
>>256275461It's not like the Chinese had anymore of a "bowman culture", they used crossbows precisely because of this, they can be handed to a peasant with no military training. Mechanically there's no real difference between Roman and Chinese crossbows in the 2nd century, just minor differences in design aesthetic.Actual bow cultures didn't use crossbows at all, they used bows.
Historical title soon
>>256275730Yuannigger can't destroy your campaign if you are the Yuannigger>>256275978but Scythians didn't build crossbows, and the roman reliance on auxilliaries for specialized troops meant they never really branched out to create either quality ranged or cavalry units>>256276095>It's not like the Chinese had anymore of a "bowman culture"archery was certainly more prevalent in China than in Greece, it just got replaced almost entirely by Crossbows during the Han Dynasty.
Despite being the most successful TW yet, 3K has about as much hype and excitement surrounding it as a wet fart.Surprised what took them so long. Gameplay is identical to any other nu-TW title
>>256276115>austria is surrounded by weirdosno wonder they wanna learn to swordfight
>>256275395Sounds like shit.
>>256276260I'm surprised anyone buys video games anymore, they're all just frameworks made for endless dlc milking. I bought 3K because I love total war and Dynasty warriors, but I've spent more time playing the older titles since I bought it. It's pretty underwhelming.
>>256275534It more like disgust.
>>2562762603K perfectly represents imo the franchise well commercial wise. Total War is one of those games that no one else really talks about in the same capacity as other more popular genres like action games or RPGs, but for some reason sells a truckload because most of its fans simply play it in silence in the comfort of their homes. Warhammer is the opposite. It had blockbuster tier marketing and direction, rivaling that of some console titles, so more people are talking about it. For example, the Curse of the Vampire Coast alone has 1.4million views on youtube.
>>256276454you sound like a faggot
>Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. An Elder Scrolls mod for any Total War title is a technical infringement of the EULA (that you can read on the steam store page for the game).I would highly recommend that you do not invest your time into creating such a mod because we will be legally obliged to take it down from the Steam Workshop.What did they mean by this
>>256276552you sound like a chink
>>256276195>archery was certainly more prevalent in China than in GreeceNot really. Certain Greek cultures like Crete had great respect for archery and various Greek settlements around the Black Sea were in routine competition with steppe nomads in the same way China's northern states were.And one of the chief enemies of the Greeks, the Persians, made extensive use of both archers and horse archers in their armies.So you can't say the Chinese (and this is before the Han by the way) focused more of crossbows to the detriment of heavy armour and shields simply because there were more archers about. There wasn't, the bow was ubiquitous in both the East and West.
>>256276195>>256275461>what is Crete
>>256276260how does hype even matter if it sold wellHype is an irrelevant non issue because being hyped up by a few dozen /v/edditors doesn't mean it will be a commercial success.Maybe this is a wake up call that your little bubble does not represent general sentiment
>>256276421>>256276260>41k left playing>only 3 weeks inTotal War 3K is definitely going to go down having one of quickest burnout rate for TW gamers in the franchise. I won't be surprised if CA abandons it next year if they see that only a few thousand people are left playing like they did with Attila.
>>256276676People still like talking about games after they release. Nobody really seems to care about 3K though, aside from Dynasty Warrior fans
>>256276686i dont care enough about 3k but why are you shit posting, its currently the off hours for normal people and itll go back up ~100k for about an hour before dropping back down again
>>256276660one tiny island with less than half a million inhabitants also being famous archers in a culture that has almost no archers is nothing too impressiveEgyptian and Scythian Archers would dab on Cretans hard>>256276629Crossbows were already wife spread halfway through the Warring States period, they just became prevalent during the Han Dynasty
>>256276827again, just because they don't discuss it in your bubble doesn't mean it isn't discussed anywhere at alland your DW narrative is also bullshit because people are discussing it all day every day around here, and on youtube too.
>>256276827Again, what does it matter if the game sold ridiculously well? Besides, it's not like people will be talking about Warhammer 5 years from now just like barely anyone talks about Med 2, Rome 1 or Shogun 2 aside from some passing mentions whenever people make comparisons
>>256276686the 24 hour peack is still 81k from 191k after 3 weeks. Which is a retention rate 3 times better than tw warhammer.
>>256276851I'm just saying the truth. Even Warhammer 2 retained at least 75% of its playerbase months after release.
>>256276716Calm down, Todd.
>>256246594That is how fucking strata works dipshit, this type of formation exists in N. America and EU as well.
>>256277102>Even Warhammer 2 retained at least 75%why do you lie? 3K has higher retention rates than warhamsWH2 died massively after launch until ME was released, and again died down until DLC were released
>>256276972You keep talking about bubbles. No one cares.>>256277027>Why does it matterIt doesn't, I just find it funny that the most successful game in the franchise and no one gives a fuck about it.
>>256277232and you keep talking about a lack of hype, when that is obviously an issue of your observation rather than a lacking reception of the gameif you go around saying "hurr nobody talks about this game, game sucks" ypu should expect to be called a retard
>>256277232> I just find it funny that the most successful game in the franchise It's not that uncommon at all. For example, Sekiro is the highest selling Fromsoft game believe it or not, but it has absolutely zero discussion in the internet compared to Dark Souls. Sales aren't just the result of internet hype. There are many factors on why a game sold well, which in this case, the vast majority of people who bought 3K are chinese people who don't really talk much about video games on the internet.
>>256277425There's also the fact that this general is actually pretty bad for discussing total war games.
>>256277502Reminder CA made this smug motherfucker OP purely because of his name and there's nothing you can do about it
>>256277232>and no one gives a fuck about it.>82k players yesterday>30k people watching it on twitch yesterday>1,3 million youtube views in the last weekI think you are just an idiot with confirmation bias, seeing and hearing what you want to see and hear.
I wish eagg was still around or we could talk about 3k in the gsg (It's a deeper gsg than Imperator, hilariously). I'm tired of this shit-poster.
>>256273130I believe thats supposed to be the emperor given that the goal of the governors is to preserve the han empire.
>>256277717You just need to ignore them and keep to actual discussion, they inevitably get bored when people don't feed them.
>>256277717/eagg/ shunned 3K when it had the chancenow it is dead because of it
>>256277635How the fuck do you calculate youtube views?>X amount of playersAre you legit retarded? I just pointed out how it's the most successful game yet. Don't literally make my arguments for me, you dingus>>256277402I never stated anything about the actual game itself, stop projecting you insecure sperg
>>256277909This. I tried to bring up 3K back when /eagg/ was alive, because it was the only RoTK game that could possibly revitalize discussion, but they scoffed and laughed because it was a western product.
>>256240854but it's not cracked :(
>>256277997>but they scoffed and laughed because it was a western productWait, what?
>>256277997To be fair, we scoffed and laughed at 3 Kangz on /twg/ too. Everywhere really. Most people expected another Rome 2 disaster.
>>256278016I've come to find that games that go uncracked are the ones no one gives a remote fuck about
>>256277980>How the fuck do you calculate youtube views?Steam Spy does it for me>I just pointed out how it's the most successful game yetand yet you claimed noone gives a fuck about it, when that is evidently not true
>>256278078Chinaboos are genuinely deluded and have no taste. These people play gacha games.
>>256278078It was a mix of a lack of familiarity with CA as well as some of the pre-release stuff looking bad, along with genuine autism about a new series.>>256278081In fact, you have some people who are still really set on pushing it as another Rome 2 somehow.
>>256277717I wish you fucked off to /eagg/ as well. I feel like both sides would be happier with that arrangement. You're more than welcome to discuss Total War: Three Kingdoms in the Total War General though, just make sure you stay on topic. The people who are explicitly saying shit like >>256236818have absolutely no place here.
>>256278078/eagg/ was of the opinion that only Koei could do the setting justice, despite Koei being probably the one who did the most damage to it by turning it into slapstick anime shitRotK13 was A-OK, but DW9 was a pathetic disaster and frankly a straight up insult.Around the time DW9 was looking to be absolute shit, 3K was announced and most of /eagg/ immediately chose to shit on it, also defending against a real or imagined /twg/ invasion taking place, hilariously at the same time /twg/ was complaining about an /eagg/ invasion
>>256278183Anon, I don't know what to say. You're fucking mongoloid. I have never argued against the game being popular. Final (you)
>>256278078It's a general dedicated to a japanese game series. Obviously, people will be biased towards a western company trying to adapt a setting that's mostly done by asians. Especially since the prerelease for 3K was really bad and nobody everywhere was hyped for the game at all.
Lmaoing at the basedboys getting btfo by 3 Kangdoms and now can't stop seething over it. They were so eager to be vindicated by another hilarious CA blunder. Calling it'll flop for months on end and look what happened hahahaha
>>256278320then why do you complain about your subjective lack of hype?You started this entire non-issue based on an opinion you couldn't back up with anything else than your feelings
>>256278303>Around the time DW9 was looking to be absolute shit, 3K was announced and most of /eagg/ immediately chose to shit on it, also defending against a real or imagined /twg/ invasion taking place, hilariously at the same time /twg/ was complaining about an /eagg/ invasionit seems like we're all so alikedo they also exalt their earlier games and shit on new ones?
>>256278380Gonna break my own rule after 1 minutehttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1989_Tiananmen_Square_protests
>>256278380Hey there, bud. I couldn't help but notice you seem a little upset. Don't stress about the little things so much, arguing with anonymous posters on the internet and getting frustrated doesn't seem like a fun way to go through life.Consider taking a breather and playing some Total War in the mean time. :)
>>256278386of course, DW3 and 4 are the Gold Standard, much like Rome and Med 2, the earlier games like DW2 are playable but really an acquired taste, you'll still find tryhard autists who claim those earliest titles are the TRUE golden age, like Shogun 1 and Med 1.I think the main issue is that DW didn't get a really good instalment for 10 years while Total War had Attila and Warhams to keep the general going.And while DW9 was a complete disaster that killed the fanbase, 3K turned out pretty alright
Shogun 2 has unironically the best carpets and best aesthetics, prove me wrong.Protip: you can't
>>256278386Yes, it became a meme for a while that everyone complaining about DW9 would start with >as someone who has been playing since DW3/4...
I think the only reason posting has slowed down is because more people are actually playing the new game
Daily reminder that you are arguing with a mentally ill person that spams shit like >>256278429 every day and falseflags just for attention.Stop giving actual replies to people like him that are blatant bait.
>>256278658Yeah, that must be why the player counts are dropping like rocks in water...
>>256278386>do they also exalt their earlier games and shit on new ones?Pretty much. Someone from tumblr convinced /eagg/ that DW9 was the best thing since he somehow got the game two weeks early. Boy the fucking backlash that caused.
>>256278671Stop entertaining shitposters and go prop up your rapidly dying game, anon. If you're waiting for your turn though, then that's understandable
>>256278676>the player counts reflect people who post on /twg/don't be fucking retarded
>>256278658You say that, but when every previous TW title launched the general saw a massive uptick in posts even on the off-hours.
>>256278658Nah, people simply moved on.I myself am not going to play until they release the blood dlc
>>256278604>doesn't post a carpet to prove itFix immediately
>>256278658I'm waiting for WH2 stuff.
>>256278728>>256278386>>256278303Hey there buddy. It seems like you might be lost, but to discuss DW you have to be posting in the right thread, and you're in /twg/ right now, so we'd all appreciate it if you could go back to your thread or start actually discussing Total War. Thanks, take care.
>>256278671Whatever happened to the SEETHING/Honkey Chink shitposter? Did he finally get banned? Are the jannies finally doing their fucking jobs? It was absolutely insane to me how much time that guy spent daily in this thread responding to every single post he could.
>>256278783We've had rapidfire threads when it came out though? We've just discussed everything to discuss about this game and since there's nothing to talk about and since E3 just came out and there are lots of shit to talk about, some people are instead there on /v/.
>>256278831don't reply to me ever again you disgusting retard
>>256278776Oh okay, we'll just go by your proof then, which are your feelings and thoughts not backed up by anything. That sounds more reasonable.
>>256278843SEETHING honkey anti-3K shill :)
Woah... so this... is the power... of chinkmanii...
>>256278854>We've had rapidfire threads when it came out though?Right, but that happens after every single new TW title launch. What I'm saying seems to be a more unique phenomenon surrounding the 3K launch is that the posts have died off so quickly. It's been around 2-3 weeks since launch and the general is moving slower than it has in over a year. This didn't seem to be the case with Attila or the Warhammer games. This is more like when Thrones of Britannia came out.
>>256278783Most of the posts when a new release hits is shitposting, discussion about the game happens anyway, like it happened this time, but now that it has been discussed we need new content. That's part of the reason why /wgg/ and /rtsg/ died in the first place. We have games that allow basically endless replayability, but after a while you don't have anything new to discuss that you haven't discussed several times in the past already.In the general there's people playing the games, old and new, but they don't post anymore because what's there to show? Unless it's some remarkable shit that clicked together to be really interesting like a diplomatic fuck up, it's all stuff that we've seen or played a thousand times.
>>256279003> the general is moving slower than it has in over a year.Maybe because some people fucked off? Why the hell would I post here when the last dozen threads were just autistic race baiting and /int/shit?
Is this true?
>>256278926Where is the actual guy though? I can tell you're just pretending because he had such a unique brand of autism. You would know if he was present in this thread because every single post that didn't praise 3K or talked about a non-3K game would've been responded to. He also uses the same couple of images over and over again. For example, he posts an image of Chinese actors/sports players/models compared next to the Terracota Warriors a lot.
>>256279003>This didn't seem to be the case with Attilattila was dead on arrival, three weeks after launch it had like 2k people playingWarhams drew the /tg/ crowd, so it had more crossposting
>>256279101It's a shame we lost out on a fair amount of /twg/ regulars because of Chinkshit. Hopefully they come back eventually once the /eagg/fags either integrate or move on.
>>256278843No, it's just another sock puppet personality the schizophrenic in these threads uses to argue with himself
>>256278604>best aestheticsOnly if you are a weeb.
>>256279101this, quality discussion is really rare in /twg/ and this weeks ratraid really drove a lot of peole offnow you're back to the core posters of /twg/
>>256279106I always thought the guy you're talking about and this guy >>256278987 >>256279102 were the same person.
How to prevent boredom after turn 50 or so when the game becomes a map painting simulator?
What game is this?
>>256279230Start a new one.
>>256279090>In the general there's people playing the games, old and new, but they don't post anymore because what's there to show?We've managed to keep this general alive for years, so clearly people used to be more than willing to re-discuss topics that have already been addressed. Warhammer specifically has a CRAZY amount of repeatedly discussed topics, but it keeps the general alive and it's fun to talk about so people did it. People seem to have already gotten over their honeymoon phase with 3K and aren't putting in the same level of discussion. I'm mostly chalking it up to cultural barriers in that most westerners haven't read the Romance, but it only takes an hour or so to read up on the Warhammer wiki.
>>256279230Shitpost in the thread and bait chinks/histfags/fantasoys. Bonus points if you make your own OC.
>>256279216This general is no longer fun anyway. It's all just shitty autistic nit picking every time and discussing 3K so far has been a complete bore. I figure other people simply went back home to their other main generals where it's more lively.
>>256279275Early game TW is best game.
It's about time you idiots realized 3k is shit and that there is nothing about it to discuss. There's only a few chingoloids remaining in the thread and soon they will be gone too.
>>256279216>this weeks ratraid really drove a lot of people offOkay, bud.So it wasn't the two weeks of non-stop Chink shitposting...>LOL IT'S OUR GENERAL NOW HONKEY>*proceeds to post anime girls and other unrelated shit*>*removes Warhammer from the OP and tries to rename the general* The ratfags have been here since WH2 launch if not before, Skaven have always been a popular race in the Warhammer world because they are one of the only actual unique ones. Go peddle your disingenuous bullshit elsewhere.
>>256279314there's really nothing else to talk about 3K at this point anyway. People have already seen and discovered what was there to do and what could happen in the first week.
Looks like the 3K honeymoon phase is over, folks.
>>256279257Total War: Lens Flare
>>256279409>So it wasn't the two weeks of non-stop Chink shitposting...How is that different from the non-stop shitposting about chinks? Remember everytime someone would bring up 3K and the general would devolve into an incoherent mess about Tiananmen square until jannies made it bannable on sight?
>3k player numbers in the gutter>no updates>chinks slowly realize the game is barebones and that CA doesn't give a fuck about them>discussion dies down because its china where everyone looks the same, behaves the same and is soulless>not even a month after release chinks are already wavering and leaving en massekek, I can't even respect you.

>>256279495If you see a shitpost and respond with more shitposting, you are making the situation worse not better. Full stop. Don't try and justify it, don't pull some "but mom he did it first!" shit, just ignore it and move the fuck on like a goddamn adult.Three Kingdoms and Warhammer could've easily co-existed but a select few autists on both sides decided they would incessantly shitpost about it until it devolves into a flame war. This entire thing could've been avoided if they were ignored. Also, it's 4chan. Expecting people not to mention the Tienanmen Square Massacre on the anniversary of the Tienanmen Square Massacre in any thread discussing anything even remotely Chinese in topic or origin is just naive.
>>256279314What allows discussion is getting new people through sales of old games and releases of new games, they will inevitably ask questions and those spark discussion. In this general though there's this fucked up mentality where games in the series are like soccer teams and some think you're only allowed to like one. Shitposting scares away the new players that will either play and don't post or fuck off completely.Seriously, this is one of the weirdest communities I have seen. There are people that hate more games in the series than they like, some that actively despise everything, others that don't allow mod discussion because of the cheat meme, then there's the enmity between MP and SP...we're fucked up.
>>256279483Fucking finally. It was fucking cringy putting up with these insects.
>>256279409it was two weeks of shitposting from all sides, but during E3 there was a literal organised shitposting raid by ratfags posting TW unrelated gayshit with unrelated rat picturesthe usual shitposting could be easily ignored, but a concentrated discord tranny raid shutting down all discussion due to Vermintide 2 DLC announcement had nothing to do with "muh skaven discussion"and the fact that you try to paint racebaiting falseflagging as something that wasn't done by a select few people strawmanning both sides is a good sign you are a literal retard
>>256279101>>256279216Plus there's not much to talk about, as the hype of 3K is winding down, we are still waiting on DLCs for 3K or any significant mod, as well as lord packs for WH2.>>256278843He probably got relocated to another place by his superior or got frustrated over the amount of ratposting, 50 cent party bois are like that. Not that anything short of a range ban would affect him since he would have been using a VPN to post from mainland china anyways. I'm sure we will miss him.
>>256279698>Also, it's 4chan.Even then there's still limits. Just like how mentioning trannies, SJWs, and ugly women in western gaming is enough to destroy entire threads. Just look at /v/. Dozens of games are literally rendered impossible to talk about because of some vague connection to politics.
Hmmm, the dying down of chink posting strangely coincided with the Honk Kong protests and the 30th anniversary of the Tiananmen square massacre that resulted in China pushing harder towards internet censorship and restricting access to western media. Really makes you think.
>the thread is moving slow on a thursday morning that means the hype is deadwhy are mutts so braindead
>>256279483It will b over when we have some Total War related STUFF
>>256263478I want Tienanmen square mod.
>>256279738>Vermintide 2 DLC announcement had nothingActually yeah, it had, the raid originated from /v/, ratposters jumped on it and the original target was to be /vtg/ but since it died they came here.
>>256279809Nope. Your chink gayme is dead gayboi. We're finally going back to Warhammer bros.
>>256279802>What is context?This wasn't the case with previous launches, I don't know how many times this needs to be reiterated. The general was still quite lively in the off-hours after Warhammer launched.
>>256279856>back to Warhammer bros.Not on my watch, fatass fantanigger.
>>2562798844chan wasn't as shit when Warhams launchedit wasn't 90% shitposting
This is the only good thing that came out of this whole china fiasco.
>>256279394>chinese zoo>Japanese on signboardCOPE
>>256279903Post historical games instead of shitting on people playing games you don't like
>>256279948This. Warhammer came out way before the election. Now compare that to WH2 where 90% of the posts were MORTAL EMPIRES WHEN and the 10% were asking for DLC because people were already bored with the vortex campaign
>>256279903I miss the days when these threads were filled to the brim with Romeaboos. I miss the Antiochus III "Seleucid bully not so tough after getting raped" memes.
>>256280000>this is the power of chinese intellectuals
>>256280003Lol shut the fuck up you stupid fat bitch
I appreciate the historical accuracy crowd but sometimes they take it too far. I've tried mods before where they've limited tech trees only because that faction didn't have those technologies. I get the devotion to history but let's not take the fun out of it. If I wanted it to play out exactly like history then I'd go read a textbook.
>>256280037>I CAN'T BELIEVE A CHINESE SETTING GAME IS DOING BETTER THAN MY WESTERN ONEJust like Shogun all over again
>>256280203Shogun was actually good unlike 3shitdoms
>>256280131I feel like people have a very selective sense of what is historically accurate as well. I mean the first Rome Total War game had fucking Roman Ninja Assassins for fuck's sake. This series hasn't ever been historically accurate, they just shoot for a general representation of a specific time period.
>>256280203Shogun 2. Good memes, made competitive battles a thing and most importantly: People actually gave a shit about it when it released
BANNELORD IS IN BETAI REPEAT, BANNERLORD IS IN BETA.WE CAN FINALLY DITCH THIS BORING CHINKSHIT AND PLAY A FUCKING REAL GAME NOW.

>>256280410I'd like to see a Total War: Age of Mythology game personally. I think there is a lot they could do there, although I suppose some cultures would be a little harder to do than others (i.e. obviously no Middle East faction with Muhammad or something).
>>256280557>I-I've been here since R-Rome 2!cope, you seething insect

>>256276260When I posted this, I didn't actually expect the entire fucking general to be swarmed with shitposters who don't even care for the game. 3K is obviously a smash hit in China and that it was clearly worth it, but Jesus Christ, the state of western TW fans
>noone cares about ur gaemtrue, in this game noone seems to give a shit about any total war game since for the past two hours there hasn't been any discussion for any TW at all, it is just circular shitpostingthis general is dying, and good riddance
>>256280609Cope harder CCCP fucker. If Stalin were alive, you'd be sent to siberia already

>>256280704You do know that USSR and China were on the brink of war during most of the Cold War, right?
>>256280609>Chinks shitposting non-stop for weeks, ruining any semblance of discussion that can be found>People eventually leave>Discussion dies down>"WELL MAYBE IF /twg/ WASN'T SO RACIST THE GENERAL WOULD STILL BE ALIVE!"Okay, bud.
How historically accurate is it that chinks would use a form of testudo during this period? I'm very knowledgable on the period but I've never heard about such a technique being used at the time.
>>256280590Sounds cool but they've already covered the Greeks and all of those cultures pretty heavily. I think the problem is the farther back in time you go, the less unit variety you can have since there is less technology. I think they need to remake Empire. With mods that fix most of the glitching, it's a really awesome experience. With the line infantry you feel more in control of your army, since they aren't running around and getting out of formation. If they made a playable and expanded version, with naval combat included, then it could be amazing.
>>256280763Are you really blaming me for this pathetic house of cards you faggots made? Cope.
>>256280785China might not be a nuclear power today if the Russians weren't so fucking retardedly incompetent at everything they do.
>>256280838I'd like to add that setting up your line with barricades and cannons, then watching 5000 indians get demolished as they run toward you is really fun.
>>256280831>3K>Historically accurateThese are things that just don't go together. Chinese history is about as fan fiction as you get.
>>256280887Knowing history is cope? What?
>>256280829This is like the self-fulfilling prophecy of "fantasy will destroy the general" all over again. People started shitposting against the boogeyman well before it arrived.
>>256280906Honky chinkshills are deluded like that.
>>256280609People are enjoying the game are playing the game instead of replying to shit posters.
>>256280903>China might not be a nuclear power todayHow does that contradict anything I said?
>>256280971I wonder how many times people are going to have to repeat this same talking point over and over before they themselves actually believe it.Who are you trying to convince here, Chang?
>>256280829>Chinks shitposting non-stop for weeks, ruining any semblance of discussion that can be foundYou mean don't posting rat cocks? Just shut the fuck up faggot
>>256280971>playing the game>when player count is down to the tens of thousandsOH NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NOLOOK AT THE TOP OF HIS HEAD
>>256281032It doesn't. I just felt like taking the opportunity to vent my frustrations. I'm not even the guy you were initially talking to. I'm just some guy who will forever be annoyed at the Russian dipshits who shredded secret documents instead of burning them like they were ordered.
>>256281048Learn to speak proper English first, Chang. Then we can try and have a discussion about this.
>>256280906I'm just curious to know if the formation has any historical basis or if they just put it in the game for functionality. China was the most technologically advanced civilization at the time, but I don't believe their military techniques and strategies were even close to the Roman Empire's.
>>256281034>>256281050It must be fun, complaining and being angry all the time not being able to accept that people can enjoy things that you cannot and that the world doesn't revolve around you. Knock yourself out I guess.
>>256281048>rat cockswait, you fags got raided by /trash/ of all places? Brilliant
>>256280831holding a shield infront of yourself while the next one holds it above is bot exactly rocket science, the only requirement for it to become a turtle is the shape of the shield, which the Chinese had at the time.And seeing how they were pretty big on formations and drill at the time I would say a testudo type is not far fetched, though 100% missile resistance is obviously bullshit

>>256282239Nice goalpost moving retard, you don't look stupid at all.
>>256281825It's even worse.
>>256282135This site was created by Moot and it's hosting servers have never existed in Japan, the servers have always been in America. English has always been the only form of communication used on this site and most people take the time to actually learn the language before posting.You seem like a teenager so I'll cut you a break, but you really should brush up on your English. Specifically your grammar, it's pretty god damn atrocious and it makes it abundantly apparent you don't have a good grasp on the language.
>>256282128more Gooks than Chinks have access to 3K and Twitch, since SK has more citizen than Taiwan3K is also probably more popular with Gooks than Taiwanese since they are closer to the action both geographically and historically
>>256282274Yes you win, you get a garbage patch that doesnt fix anything. Well done you absolute sperg. Now fuck off with your autism.
>>256282162Dong Zhuo is the only one who can and it's pretty useless. You get intimidation out of it, which you will probably have hard time keeping up anyway unless on legendary. There are probably some ways to exploit it with rebels but the bonuses aren't all that amazing. You're gonna have to research and build around the intimidation penalties anyway.
>>256282337Thanks, have fun waiting on rat dlc or whatever it is you do.
>>256282204>butthurt and insecure>talks shit because no proper english>ends up with thisI hit a nerve, right?
>>256282389Nigga seriously, why the fuck are you so bootyblasted right now?
>>256282383Have fun waiting for a workshop that wont happen and a patch that wont fix anything.
I miss the old /twg/.
>CA hypes up how 3K is going to be a hit because RoTK is so popular you guys>ends up with the west not giving a flying fuck about it>the majority who bought it are using currency that that isn't even worth anything>most streamers already went back to WarhammerImagine being a retarded chink lmaoNobody gives a fuck about your shit """"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""history""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""
>>256282492I miss my youth.
>>256282439why would the workshop not happen? are you a retard? There isn't even any license to worry about like there was with Warhams and we still got the Workshop despite idiotic alarmists claiming it won't come.
>>256282542>why would the workshop not happen?Because CA is abandoning the game. It's only been 3 weeks and only 40k players left lol. This is the largest drop of players in TW history for the last 20 years.
>>256282432Me? You started that shit and faggots like >>256282516
>>256281048>>256281484>>256281723>>256282135German kids are up there with Russians and Brazilians as some of the most obnoxious little faggots to ever roam this Earth, huh?
Stop replying to obvious bait.
>>256282631If things are really upsetting you this much that you feel the need to respond so defensively again and again...Take a deep breath, and walk away. It really is that simple, Hans.
>>256282631>b-b-b-b-but that other guy tooYou sure are buttfrustrated there chong
His true self appears.
Ok so what's the point in sacking cities? I only ever occupy them or MAYBE loot if I need money badly enough.
Based or cringe?
Who would you guys recommend for a Han Governor campaign? I'm leaning towards Ma Teng because of his starting location but Kong Rong has a fun campaign mechanic with a pretty OP unique crossbow unit and he also gets Taishi Ci. Any thoughts?Also...Zhang Yan or Zheng Jiang for most fun Bandit campaign?
>>256282904When you're having massive food issues but still want to conquer land I guess
>>2562829633K is just FotS all over again
>>256282992Ma Chao is an absolute beast.
>>256282992Nobody gives a shit, chang.
>>256283061Doesn't he hate Ma Teng though? I'd like to keep them both for as long as possible since he doesn't really get any other unique characters aside from the ones you can potentially capture. Is his "forage for food" mechanic actually useful or is it more just a neat little extra thing you try once and never again?
>>256282992Ma Chad and his no fatigue cav is probably the most fun. Kong Rong is basically playing monopoly, Quite fun.Bandit queen.
>>256283143Forage is meh, but your cav is pretty much free and don't tire and you're drowning in silk money.I put away Ma Teng when Ma Chao came of age, and you can capture Dong Zhuo's generals. You also have Pang De.
>>256281624Probably the latest batch of nerfs by Lotus & Co.
>>256283061>>256283174>>256283230Alright, thanks guys. I'm going to go with Ma Teng I think and then maybe consider a Zheng Jiang playthrough once I'm done. Enjoy your morning/afternoon/evening/night.
>>256282963Why not just all trebs?
>>256283357Remember to get Lu Bu and use full vanguard armies.
>mfw entire army has gorilla deploymentEvery battle is an ambush!
>>256282661you forgot everyone else below north america
>>256282584oh I am laffing, unfathomable delusion
>Faction Destroyed: Yuan ShaoBest feeling.
>>256282516>most streamers already went back to Warhammeryes, and all of 62 people are giving a fuck>>256282079
>>256283124why are you cucks so vocal about your insecurities?
>>256282584>being this biased
>Liu Bei becomes emperor>one turn later he dies of """"""""""""old age""""""""""""""""""really makes you think
>>256284660They really should have made it 12 turns = 1 year or something, the map is way too big for the current turn/year ratio. As it is it can take a decade for an army just to cross China even without fighting.
>tfw can only win unfavor fights by cheesing ithow to git gud? also Lu Bu is pretty op
>>256284660Go to Settings to activate Windows
>>256284764that's why you dismiss the army and redeploy them close to the target, you retard.Game is fine like this, I cleared Legendary in 120 fucking turns and none of the big 3 were dead.
Poor little Zang li. He has only 1 army and 3 commaderies to protect with it.
>>256284896>you dismiss the army and redeploy themYes, I know that but it's still dumb that it takes that long in terms of the character's lifespan to simply walk across China. I'm not asking for movement speed to be increased am I, I'm saying character lifespans should be increased so that the majority of the named characters aren't dead by the time the first Emperor is declared.As a side note; calm down princess, you're not the smartest person in a room full of retards, you just don't actually read posts properly or consider opinions other than your own. Pump the brakes a bit, you might avoid a heart attack at thirty.
>>256284896>disband this army and teleport the generals across the country10/10 immersive game design
SOr ry I have shit to deal with but I'm getting the translatitions done forhttps://imgur.com/a/CHZj9ThComments says what it's a part ofI think it's like>Cao Cao vs Sun Ren>Hero, BANDIt(?), Turban apartments - having good or not so-o good times>the Zheng Jiang person captured vs realityLike I coul d post the hangul somewhere but the sort of accursed slang/abbreveiaitations would not work so justanywaythe Empire sort of sucked I tried just sacking every city I could find but turns out if you don't wait before you attack former ceasfeire dudes people and eeven the dwarves tget upset so I wish someone taought me that in school but likechaos what's the strategy so chaos invades at some point was I supposed to just venture south or, because they come from north I think? I didn't see the uh greeen skins in one run I think they just attacked the Frenchuhhhthe thread's dying but so am I can you just link my post in the new thread because I want to play empire finish it so I can play as gobblers because only the f first gameI loveall of you
June 2019............ I am forgotten
Chinese sure do say "tian xia" a lot.
Can any of you Dynasty Warriors fans tell me why there are 5 different dudes in this game called Lu Be
>>256286770there is not a single person in this game called Lu Be
God dammit why does nobody ever want to duel Sun Jian. Are they too scared of the tiger of jiandong to even show up to a fight?
How do you even prevent this Spying is so shit
>>256240456they only stand up if the model stabs them into the ground, otherwise they fall onto the ground.
just woke up, what did I miss
>>256286846you think Sun Jian has it bad?
>>256287321Just a few autistis duking it out with American/Canadian chinksSame shit as always
>>256286893Seems like it happens with spies who have shit happiness and maybe grudges against you or friends in the other faction?I think spying is pretty fun but I have yet to catch a spy or notice being spied on myself.There should be a way to recall them tho aside from tasking them to steal something and gtfo. And I suggested last thread that when you have a spy in an army and go to rts battle, there should be a button revealing the spies true allegiance and giving you control over him and, depending on level or how long the spy has been with the army, a few units of his retinue.
>>256282584the 24 hour peak is still 81k from 191k after 3 weeks. Which is a retention rate 3 times better than tw warhammer.
Why am i chasing you inside my town, why don't you fight?!
>>256251184Good. I'm tired of historical titles and honestly would want them to go on to LotR or 40k. They can't really do history anymore after ToB and 3K is just kind of 'meh.'
