>>325617854Good. We must squeeze every possible coin out of lesser races.
What is the ideal army comp for Vampire Coast?I'm thinking mostly just gunnery mob spam with maybe some mournghouls with necrofex colossus and leviathans
>>325617956Bloated Corpse spam.
>>325617956handguns, mortars, crabs is your bread and buttercatch things on crabs and blast with handguns and mortarsnecrofex can do funny stuff being a set of cannons on legsleviathans are fun brick shithouses you can throw at most things pretty safelymournghouls have always been sort of meh in my experience
>>325616329Not all of us and every time you try to come to Athel Loren you get stomped
>>325618318>some flesh puppets mind controlled by treesDo they really count as elves at that point?
>>32561795620 Necrofexes.But for a more normal stack, you want your artillery, prometheans for frontline, deck gunners\handguns for missile troops and something else to taste.>>325618206>mortarsDon't they fall off with lack of AP? I know they're still useful in sieges, but in the open field they won't have the time.
>>325618417>Dwarves are too stupid to understand magicThe forest responds to elven magic
>>325617545the legions bring their might down upon the barbarian interlopers occupying the provinces of hispania - the imperial cavalry guard ride rampant through the spear chucking skirmishers while the fearsome 2 handed axemen fall before volleys of archer fire
>>325618483with crabs as your frontline they have the timeyou need the splash damage to be able to win the melee clash because just handguns or deck gunners and the like won't really be enough unless you're going to put all your money on using winds of death to solve all those problemsmortars help you clear enemy shooters and the lack of AP really isn't that significant for a blast weapon with the way armor worksnecrofexes can get meaty shots in but their targeting is sort of shitty and less reliable than proper artilleryits also a lot easier to keep mortars and the rest of your firebase in range of a gunnery wight for the buffsbombers would be another option if they weren't so horribly slow and short ranged that it almost makes them unusable when they'll eat shit at the sight of a single basic archer unit

The ability of vargheists to fight on the walls is outright ridiculous. Their splash attacks just tear everything to shreds: armor or no armor, halberds, spears or greatweapons. Park a necromancer under the wall and you also give them 4hp/sec healing with master of the dead.
Reiklandbros, I don't feel so good... it's only turn 25 OHNONONONO
>>325618993he literally says the same shit that everybody here does>small family company>no soul(shit soundtracks and attention to detail, no banners, musicians)>shit campaigns with no depth>unit diversity is a scam since most of them have pretty much the same role, except they have pretty models>ranged units dominate everything>called chinks bugmen>shitting on youtube shills who sold their soul to CA but /twg/ hates him because he doesn't like fantasy
>>325619258fighting on walls is all sorts of fucked when flyers are introduced to the equationsomething about how infantry units have to pile in is all shitty and doesn't let them fight very well so even fell bats will tear things to shredsbats and vargheists is just bullying just about any garrison
>>325619318Is that your tattoo, friend?
Ogres are the chaddest race.
>>325618993stop shilling yourself redditor trash
>>325619414I think vargheists are a good illustration why CA didn't want monstrous infantry to be able to fight on the walls. Monstrous infantry has splash attacks and infantry gets packed very tightly on the walls so every splash attack hits the maximal number of targets it can theoretically hit.
>>325619384>he doesn't like fantasythen he is irrelevant
>>325619384That's because he's objectively wrong, all-melee counts couldn't have a 50%-ish winrate otherwise.tl;dr he is a historincel and probably cuck as well

>>325619457>[Dwarves groodging in the distance]
>>325619457>Gaydrill the Grey Vanquisher
>>325619619its more like the way they did walls was garbage in general and it always has been in some form or anotherif they wanted to fix it conceptually they just have to make walls wider with an area you can properly position troops in like open ground as well as the janky pre baked spots for manning the battlementsthe problems are with CA being competent enough to fix any of the issues that would come up with implementing these fixes like how making walls bigger and giving them a different standing area so you can fight on them in a less shitty way would fuck with how they implemented walls breaking and the other problems the buildings have with hitboxesmost of the restrictions you see in the game like monstrous infantry not being able to fight on walls or spells not working on walls is more because there was a buggy interaction they couldn't get right rather than actual design decisions
>>325619731Ancestorbros...I don't feel so good...
>>325619619>monstrous infantry vs tightly packed infantryinfantry reinforcing into six units of great weapon minotaurs has to be one of the most brutal things I've ever seen.
>>325617948That would be a nice read if TWW2 had naval battles.......
>110 turns of fighting skaven shitstacks of slaves and their retarded Autoresolve bias, their cancer sieges, weapon and artillery spam and getting ambushed every turnI actually invested 3 points in ambush defense chance, fuck meAlso thank god skaven siege maps have that one area on the left where the towers can't shoot and you can hide your troopscan you name a worse faction to fight against?
>>325620461closest thing would be high elves and their obnoxious phoenix spam they love these days but nothing really compares to the condensed faggotry skaven bring to the game
Is there a better feeling than sacking Lothern afterkilling the nth dragon/phoenix spam stack?
>>325620461Welves are up there, but you fight them very rarely.
I miss the historical games, when's the next one coming?
News this week?
>>325620753after you pay for graces onlyfans
>>325620461Get more cav.
>>325617617dont forget that later phoenix kings has all been to afraid to visit dwarfs when there is some diplomatic issue and send others instead
>>325621016There hadn't been diplomatic relations whatsoever between helves and the dwarves at any point since the War of the Beard so there were no diplomats sent at all either way. Until Finubar tried to re-establish them of course but both dwarfs and elves proved powerless against the might and brilliance of Mannfred von Carstein - and the effort a failure.
>>325621016They'd probably get ambushed on the way by skaven or something even if they tried, then the piles of stolen shit in skavenblight would have a phoenix crown and they'd have to make a third one.
>>325620576Welves never attack or move outside of their cuck woodsEven when at war with them for dozens of turns and having territory right next to them, they will almost never go out and attack itMeanwhile Skaven have obnoxious armies, agent spam since they have the most types of agents, shit out corruption, ambushes, the most annoying sieges, annoying battle abilities like war bomb menace and nukes, plague, doom engineer that destroys every building and delevels your settlements and undercities. It's so tiring fighting them and they get big each campaign ever since their 2nd DLC.
>>325620047Some of the GCCM siege maps have 'walls' that transition directly into level ground and I noticed that monstrous units were perfectly capable of walking from the 'ground' onto the 'wall' and fighting like normal.
>>325618060>>325618206>>325618483Dont listen to these gamelets who should ktsDepth Guards are literally the best melee unit there is and can melt anything you throw at them. Chosen, GS, Black Orcs you name it.Also Grave Guard is the only way to play VCounts, any other suggestion means they should kys
>>325620751Medieval 2 remaster for mobile, CA already filled in the trademark. Yes, this is a thing.
>>325621191>Depth Guards are literally the best melee unit there is
Can skinks/saurus/kroxigors swim?
>>325621397I would assume skinks and kroxigors can swim.
>>325621167Do they even raid carcasonne anymore? I remember before that playing as Fay was utter hell because you'll never know if orion decides to raid your shit.
>>325621397skinks and kroxigor yesdon't think saurus do
>>325621275But they kill chaff very well
>>325621482You start at NAP with Orion and can even trade with them as Fay so no elf problems.
I have finished 4 Helf campaignsI have finished 2 Empire campaignsI have finished 1 VC campaignI couldn't get pas turn 20 for lizardmen (too boring)I haven't played any other race. Who are you judge me?
>>325621482Played a Grom campaign on ME, they declared war on me before turn 10 and never made piece and never set foot outside of their forest while I occupied bret lands. I guess CA still has PTSD from the first time they were introduced. The sisters faction does tend to go on a rampage on DE and map paint in a couple of runs I've done though.
>>325621563It wasn't like that always, especially if you make a lot of deals with other bretonnians and nearby dwarfs. After 50 turns or so, they will break treaties with you and after a while you'll see talsyn having a full stack outside your capital.
LadsI tried out 3K again last night and... It's not awful. Just boring
>>325621482Wow, CA really did model Orion after Mel Gibson, right down to his alcoholic rampages
>>325621646It think it was a couple of patches back where CA fixed their isolationist trait and by that they actually meant it. Back then you would actually experience really awful wild hunt tier raids and you have no choice but to autoresolve because welfs are the most unfun enemies to fight.
>>325621830Is the taint of Chaos upon you?
>>325619414This is why Harpies are an excellent unit when playing Beastmen.
>>325621907He's too based.
>>325622034Do you think CA is crazy enough to give us a female beastman LL?
>>325621615No. Lizards really need a better campaign. Maybe more skink units that can actually hold the line a bit better to like, give them a viable low cost front line. Also probably move some of their dino units down the settlement tree to make mid game less frustrating.-t, ligger player.
>>325622072If they make her as hot as drycha I absolutely wood. I see tiddies, I click select.
>>325622072Maybe a skaven female LL
>>325622149Make the web buildings not take up slots, improve the improvements and make Star Chambers give rank bonuses for all lords but decrease it by one rank.
>>325622149Lizardmen are a faction that is supposed to be marching to slap your shit, not holding the line. Asymmetrical design is a thing, that's why there are no Savage Orc Big 'uns (Halberds)
>>325622383>there are no Savage Orc Big 'uns (Halberds)but they have anti large anyway
I would unironically play skaven if they had a cute rat girl LL.
>>325622383That's fair desu. I just wish that there was a skink unit to sorta fill that role similar to VC Skellies. Not something that'll chew through anything but at least give you some breathing room and a start that isn't grouping all your dinos up and throwing them in a big ball of death.Not that it isn't fun.
>>325622072Aren't beastman does supposed to be the "Disney-esque docile and loving mothers" side of the nature coin? Can't really see how that would work as a LL.
>>325622505With heavy weapons, but no spears.
>>325622505Yeah but no charge defense because they're supposed to run up and clobber the humies and their horses, not hold the line.
>>325622489Imagine her chocking on Dreadlord (male) cock.
>>325622529They will be canon in the new lore form the Old World and will be added to Total War shortly after.
>>325622569CA can just retcon shit.Just give me a goat lady with a vaguely feminine shaped body and I will fork over money.
>>325619117Non mon Roi.
How do you thank the Father of Darkness for making dwarfs spikier, /twg/? You do worship Hashut every day in preparation for the Dawi Zharr prerelease between May and September, right?
>>325622637Do you think the biggest, most aggressive flavour of unga bunga orcs that are even more retarded than the regular ones are even capable of being disciplined enough to form a spear wall and hold instead of charging straight in?

>>325621682I think it's fun, so do 84% of players. 4c*nners are the vocal minority here and we all know your "reaction" to anything relates to china.
>>325622797Well that was just to make the general point, regular big 'uns might put on some clothes but they would rather charge the horses too..
>>325621916No, it looks great, and has some good stuff about it, but it's just boring.
>>325622797There was a RoR in the tt that had heavy armor, halberds and crossbows.
>>325622831Hashut is red in colour. The bale taurus is his mortal representation and he is called a renegade bloodthirster in places.
>>325622896Do those 84% of players also happen to be chinamen that unironically enjoy playing gacha?
>>325622998Nice typical goalpost but I don't play chinese gacha.
>>325622896You mean that 90% of players that dropped it after a few months?
>>325623085so your a chinamen then, opinion discarded

Those 18 turns you wasted on researching worthless """free""" shitskellies? Yeah, I used them to get global +2 corruption, +10 global growth and +15% income from gibbets and farms which I have a shitload due to my armies simply steamrolling everything in the Empire. >>325623662You have no clue how to play the counts, retarded subhuman trash.The twgtard """free""" skelly cult is officially on suicide watch.
>>325623824Typical illogic retarded assumption. Having positive opinions never mean people have to endlessly playing the game, this isn't MMO, sorry to break your gender-fluid bubble.
Indrick Boreale took it as a personal affront that the T'au had chosen a base of operations on the moon. Of course, almost anything could offend Indrick Boreale, and he would have come to attack the T'au sooner or later, just because they were there. The Space Marines struck their moonbase with force, Boreale shouting out terrible supplications. The T'au saw a terrifying defeat, they did not have time to arm themselves. They would instead come to find themselves in a hell beyond imagining, in the torture cells of Borealum.
>>325624276post your very hard campaign victory achievement then
>>325623958>waste 18 turns on researching shitskellies just so you can field a couple grave guard units when you need at least 4 per army>simply because you were too lazy to build 2 fucking buildingsFucking retard.

>>325624276>ludwig von carsteinMotherfucker, are you using the Koopalings names?
>>325624281If people liked it they would be playing it for more than a couple months, why does this trend of people supposedly liking the game but almost immediately abandoning it not appear in warhammer 2?
During the Kaurava conflict, the Imperial Guard faced the Kauravan Orks alone. Fortunately for the Orks, the Imperial Guard was also fighting Boreale and his Blood Ravens. When Force Commander Boreale ordered his men to attack the Imperial Guard, he knew full well what he was doing. The surviving Guardsmen were treated as squigs. Indrick Boreale considered this conquest a strike against the Emperor. Those that did not turn over to his Blood Ravens immediately did so out of madness by the time Indrick Boreale was a set up high upon a stage. The great victory provided a huge morale boost to the entire Ork army. The Ork tide swept through the Imperium, spilling the blood of men with virtual impunity.
>>325624281>people say they like the game>but they don't play itSo its all reddit?
>>325623824So your only shitty argument again is the concurrent online players gradually decreasing measn it's bad?? I'm sorry this is not how reviews work and this is not online game either. Almost every game's concurrent players will decrease after a period of time.
>>325624462post your achievements and prove you got them without achievement unlocker
>>325624462Here you go, shitter, the only difficulty related achievements that matter. Cope, trash.>>325624556I'm not naming my characters manually, if that's what you're implying.
>>325624563Because Warhammer 2 is practically a live service game? There are plenty of great games that lose 90% of its players after the first month. WH3 will even be more so because it's practically going to be personally supervised by GW themselves since it's the first time that TWWH will be using nuWH lore.
>>325624276>has a total of 2 armies with units>vlad has 4 GG>generic lord has 4 GG>OH MY GOD LOOK HOW MANY GG I CAN FIELD KYS SHITTERSliterally retarded>Yeah, I used them to get global +2 corruption, +10 global growth and +15% income from gibbets and farms whichhow are you so shit at the game that you need +2 corruption and 10+ global growth?While you shit around with your 2 half armies I can field 8 armies were 2 of them would be what you say ELITE and 6 armies of free skellies, expanding faster than you.But yeah it is wrong of me to assume degenerates like you would be able to think, at all.
The Dark Eldar, thinking their moonbase safe from Boreale and his drugged speech, they had squandered any chance of rebuffing the Blood Ravens. These vile xenos posed a sufficient threat to Boreale and his shouting out. Indrick Boreale broadcast a vindictive speech across the planet. Boreale and his speech tortured the Dark Eldar to the point of madness. Then Boreale left the Dark Elder where they could someday strike fear into the hearts of others by muttering of the horrors they had heard.
>>325624563Why do you think if people like it must mean they have to keep playing just one single game all the time? We are not all autistic neets like you. This isn't mmo, the concurrent players numbers only reprsent long term attraction and replayabilty of the game. Sorry to break your homosexual bubble again.
>>325624758>>325624669three kingdoms has worse player retention than fucking med2, it has twice the player count of a total war game from fucking 2007.
>>325624687>cheated achievementsYou have never even started the game once.
Zog off ratfags
>>325624481You can get 4 graveguard long before turn 18 by using skellies to fight big battles
>>325624784Those armies are sufficient to wipe out any empire full unit stack this early. You can't field anything, because you have never played counts, so your opinions are naturally worthless dogshit. by dismissing the benefits of extra corruption and growth you show that not only have you not played the counts, but you've never even finished a campaign above easy difficulty.Kys mad shitter.
>>325624758>live service game>5+ months between updatestry again
>>325624978Where are the ratfags? Or are you one of those shitposters that call everyone they disagree with a ratfag?
Faithful subjects of the Emperor understandably took heart to see the Blood Ravens strike at the heart of the Necron infestation of Kaurava. With two implacable evils turning on one another, the thinking went, the forces of right couldn't help but win. Unfortunately, Boreale would emerge from his victory in the Thur'abis plateau more dangerous than ever. The Necrons could not guess that Boreale held strange technologies and artifacts that were as hateful to the powers of the C'tan gods as they were to life itself. His muttering and his speech, they brought down the caverns atop the Necrons. Indrick Boreale left scores of his Blood Ravens to be crushed.

>>325624563Because Warhammer is a trilogy of 3 games and there's planned updates multiple times a year.3K had a very good start, but CA managed to fuck it up tremendously after launch with every single decision and the game hasn't been patched for 6 months and counting with bugs that put launch ME to shame. None of the DLC work properly save for the 8P DLC, which is essentially reskinned base campaign with the only unique characters being the faction leaders with copy paste faction effects and campaign effects from the base game.
>>325625019I set up my grave guard recruitment before turn 18, subhuman. Without wasting time on worthless research. Without suffering 2k losses worth of shitty skellies, which means I didn't have to waste money on recruiting those shitty skellies in the first place. Turn 18 is when you get free skellies at 100% research rate or turn 15 at 120% research rate. Free skellies become obsolete before you can even realistically finish researching them, lol. Kys.
>>325624903>loses 90% of its players in 5 months>this pattern doesn't appear with any other total war game>but people totally love this game guys trust me
>>325625143Most MMOs only get updates once a year.
Farseer Caerys took two leaders as fools in the Kaurava conflict, Boreale and Indrick Boreale. Caerys found herself more and more troubled by visions concerning Indrick Boreale. Through ignorance, Boreale and his Space Marines would unleash horrible forces. What the Eldar must do was clear enough, although the Blood Ravens army marched into Tyrea, they squandered any chance. The Blood Ravens invented a new sport which involved putting Eldar into cages and seeing how far they could throw them into Tyrea. Pressed hard by the avalanche of cages, the Eldar fought frantically, and then were crushed under tonnes of cages. When the Blood Ravens found Indrick Boreale pounding Farseer Caerys, the Blood Ravens watched their debased kin with disdain and some fear. The wild pleasue that Indrick Boreale took in defiling Farseer Caerys would unleash horrible forces of Slaanesh.
>>325625143>what is seasonsyou don't even play live service games, shut the fuck upupdates only happen once every 5-6 months for season resets and shitty season holiday skins.
>>325624563because 3K was fucking awful and had nothing fun about it
>>325616889it's not fair pygmybros
Don't engage with the mpfaggots
>>325625049>Turn 1 - recruit skellies >Turn 2 - raise dead and fight huge battle>Turn 3 - recruit GG>Turn 4-17 - recruit a couple of lords and skellies>Turn 18 - economy boom>Turn 19-200 - recruit lords with free skellies and switch them out for better units when economy allows (every couple of rounds or so)ta-daits not that hard retard go neck yourself
>>325625260VH/VH is the difficulty of fallible men, whereas normal is the difficulty of gods, for only a deity dares play the game like it was intented to be played without gimping his army and using only archer memestacks to seem manly and hardcore
>>325625407it's just one autist
>>325624929So what? Retention of players only means how attached the core fanbase to the game or long term replayabilty of the game, does't represnt the game quality nor public receptions. You have no logic whenever talking about anything relates to china just like most 4c*n shitlords here, this is why you shitlords will always be irrelevent vocal minority of such matter.
You fucking lost, histniggers and chinksgo back to crying at >>>/vst/ with your redditor friends
>>325625423good thing counts can't have ranged memestacks
>>325622894That armies strong but you know whats stronger? That same army accompanied by Master Necromancer and his 19 Skelebros. Which adds little to no upkeep
>>325624758>There are plenty of great games that lose 90% of its players after the first monthIf it can't stay afloat for 30 days, it isn't great. It is garbage.
>>325625441the only good thing about chink pandering is less fags, niggers and trannies in games
>>325625503whatever legend fields in his streams is the equivalent of a ranged memestack, in this case all skellies + wind of death.
4% is seething and chimpout again lol
>>325625441>player retention doesn't represent game qualityfucking lmao, that fucking broken mess rome 2 didn't even get half as bad years after launch as three kingdoms did in a few months
>>325625342Not him, but nearly all of them did. Nearly all games in steam in fact do.Here's for shogun 2https://steamdb.info/app/34330/graphs/There's a reason why people make fun of PC players not finishing their games judging by the low amount of achievement completions in steam. Most PC gamers just hoard games, not play them.
>>325625424Point still stands
>>325625418>Turn 1 - recruit skelliesI.e. waste a shitload of money. OK, retard.>economy boomLolno, retard. if you use GG, you don't get an "economy boom" from the worthless free skelly research. To get that "economy boom" you described you have to keep using the dogshit free skellies and nothing else. GG economy boom happens from rapid expansion which gives you opportunity to spam gibbets and get some farms, because you're pretty much unstoppable as GG can massacre state troops and dryads with impunity at a rate of 1:100.You have no clue what you're talking about, retard, and you opinions are worthless dogshit.
>>325625628legend is a fag
>>325625171Does it annoy anyone else how unarmored greatswords are? A curiass, helmet and gauntlets, pretty much the same as regular state troops. They should be as armored as Reiksguard and KotBS, full gothic plate. Then add the funny hats.
>>325625763anyone who plays on the higher difficulties exclusively likes grindiness and no fun
>>325625798Greatswords are just state troopers that salvage bits and pieces of armor they can find, which is historically accurate to the actual landsknecht and doppelsoldners they were based on.
>>325625678>player retention doesn't represent game qualityNo, it doesn't to a singleplayer based game such as TW3K. Which is why TW3K still has 84% positive reviews even after 2 years later. I'm sorry this makes you butthurt as hell but it's simple fact.
>>325625821that's why I keep the battle difficulty at normal and only vary the campaign difficulty
>>325625736I was under the impression that people only go free chaff route when playing Kemmler, early game vamp lords and your starting hero should carry you until you get the cav production no?
>the dev clashes are reputedly played on VHdoes that mean that in doing this, the devs are testing some ideas for TWH40k, since their armies are all archers?
>mpfags gon freakModCHADS where we at?
>>325625845Not good lore representation tho. >A regiment of Greatswords are amongst one of the greatest and most expensive asset within any Imperial army. These men are decked-out with extremely expensive Dwarf-forged Full Plate Armour, and are armed with massive two-handed swords called Zweihanders From the fucking wiki.
>>325625867>battle difficulty at normalThat makes almost every battle last 30 seconds a piece, it's not fun. VH/H is the way to go.
>>325625920If it isn't obvious the skaven are already the testbed for 40k.Ratling gunners even have a copied suppression mechanic similar to how suppression works in DoW2.
>W-Warhammer gets updates every 5 months!>that's why its popular and people still play it!Meanwhile>3K release - May 2019>8 Princes - August 2019>Mandate of Heaven - January 2020>A World Betrayed - May 2020>Furious Wild - September 2020Clearly something else is going on here.

>>325625981Also, doomwheels already prove you can have a very mobile unit that can also shoot on the move that isn't an archer.
>>325625981I highly, highly doubt we will ever get TW: Warhammer 40K.
>>325616258rolling for something I'm not shit at.Also give me tips on how to play brettonia. Started a Lady campaign and how to go around a mountain to deal with orc incursions and as I am heading back Count Noctolus invades, the wood elves declare war, and skryre delete estalia. By like turn 6. doesn't help that I don't rightfully understand how to use cal
>>325621147Subarashii! Sasuga Manfureddo-sama!
>>325626025Whatever works. I'm to lazy to check the books.
>>325626182Not in 5 years no, but eventually we will. GW really needs to shill TOW first. It's only a question of 40k is still relevant by that point. Either way, I don't see any dev ending up becoming a competitor to CA anytime soon.
>>325626140>southerners were soft they said
>>325626140the bannerman's job is to inspire the menno standard bearer worth his salt would let the banner fall or fall back because of something as silly as flesh wounds
>>325626274I feel like to develop a 40k game, it wouldn't really be Total War at that point. I can definitely see them making a 40K game, but it would be TW in name only.It works with fantasy and historical titles because they used blocky formations, I don't know if that would translate over to TW particularly well. 40k is much more squad based, even when it's scaled to ridiculous sizes.
>>325625798Aren't they considered to wear plate armor? I always thought they hid metallic plates under their fancy clothes.
>>325626413Look at this fucking chad.I swear he moves faster the more axes they throw at him.
>>325626548>bloody bannerDoes he beat the crap out of marauders with that fucking banner?
>>325626480the higher end of the scale would probably translate better to something like Ultimate General.Where you already have DoW2 for the low end and DoW for the middle.
>>325625991To be honest the main reason is pretty simple:Warhammer just has a much crazier scale to it and it's just more fun to play and watch the battles unfold. 3K's building system also feels needlessly complicated compared to Warhammer's, it's not that it's hard to understand, I just had to find myself looking at the wiki more to figure out which building trees were the best in order to develop my cities, which really isn't something you'd want to do.I actually like 3K a lot, but I find Warhammer is much more enjoyable.
>>325626274Several shit games, a disgraceful movie, a slurry of absolutely atrocious books, the insertion super-er marine^2, several shit editions that made armies unplayable and price hikes every so often couldn't kill 40k. It will remain around until MARVEL maims it and then Disney buys it to make princess movies.
>>325626597He wouldn't be a real bannerman if he didn't.
>>325626712Starting to think that bannermen deserve a lot more respect than I usually give them.
>>325626626>3K's building system also feels needlessly complicated compared to Warhammer'sYou just match the color of what your minor settlements are to what you build in the capital for incomeThat's about it, anything else is stuff like "I need PO/garrison" or your faction has something with a stacking bonus you want to spam otherwise its just picking between more income or less income based on colors
>>325626480If it happened, it will be extremely more assymetrical than compared to WH.>space marines have low model counts>1 squad of space marines has 12 models + 1 captain>have very high armor and hp per model>imperial guardsmen and tyranid hormagaunts can have up to 160-220 in a unit>very low hp per model that stray bullets can inflict noticeable loses>eldars have low model counts as well as low hp per model, but at the same time they have fleet of foot trait that allows them to instinctly dodge most attacks and are constantly moving about while attacking>incase you don't know how this looks, see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Alv-ERXXRKo>necrons have moderate model counts per unit and are tough as fuck, but really really slow making them bullet sponges both in a good and bad way>orks are orks
>>325626830>match the colorAnon, do you think people here are rocket surgeons or something?
>>325626826I mean bannermen in history served far more than a mere Aesthetic or morale purpose, they were the most obvious and best way to coordinate regiments of soldiers when the only alternative was yelling. Hence why it was also among the more dangerous jobs as the enemy knows killing you helps kill the armies cohesion.
>>325626830Warhammer is still easier compared to 3K where income constantly fluctuates.If I build a money building in WH that says it gives me 500 gold per turn, I get 500 gold per turn. In 3K, it doesn't even happen like that. Sometimes I randomly end up in the red for no reason and I can't be bothered to play accountant on where I'm losing money.
>>325625049ok, now realize you can fill out the rest of that army with free skeletons if you went for the tech, because you don't actually need the other ones to maintain your provinces if you aren't shit at the game, and that your entire autistic argument hinges on the fact that you are so bad at the campaign that you cannot pull off the superior strategy even on n/n because you suck dick at the game and all of your shitposting is just massive shitposting projection
>>325627000No because this general might be good and not 90% shitposting for once in my lifetime
>>325626830Well it's more to do with certain buildings of one color can boost buildings of another color by a certain percentage, so you really have to specialize your cities. That's where the more complex elements come from.I didn't say it was too complicated to figure out or anything, it's just more complicated than Warhammer's system. I also think the UI in Warhammer was better in that it shows more clearly which units are locked behind which building.
>>325626626>3K's building system also feels needlessly complicated compared to Warhammer's>pissbabby colormatching nonsense>needlessly complicated the absolute fucking state of warhammer retards
>>325626480I think the ideal "Total War" 40k game would basically be Steel Battalion with smaller battle maps and melee mechanics. There isn't really any other way to have large-scale "simulationist" battles with vaguely modern style armies.
>>325593826>>325594793Thanks guys>>325594793>If they all fought to the death, no.I mean dismounted
>>325626935god I hated those things so much FUCK OFF YOU SPACE ELF CLOWN GET OUT OF MY FIRE WARRIORS REEEEE
>>325626830Not quite, while I'm sure that matching colors entirely is feasible, there are building synergies to keep in mind. That's only if you're trying to be super optimal though, which really isn't necessary.
>>325626260Or just look at the official models; they wear a cuirass and that’s about it
germ scum can't even finish off a damaged army, the barbarian fears the dromedarii
>>325627335>I don't understand what building synergy is: the postnot very optimal m8
>>325627464So I'm not sure who to blame there. Knights fine with full plate, but so suppose to be greatswords since they act like elite bodyguards. But nah.
>>325627464They used to have full plate armor earlier.
>>325627464>>325627571that's the thing with WH, or maybe in GW in general.You're not supposed to take the fluff seriously because it's just heavy shilling to make the faction sound like the biggest badass alive so that you buy the minis
mfw the schizo liggers are raiding /v/ thread instead and try to start shiy. were they banned from here or what?
>>325625953gotta get that balling landsknecht aesthetic tho
>>325627553>>325627664what fucking point are you trying to make? Anyone who can't handle any post-attila building management in a tw game is a fucking moron, and praising wh's nonexistant campaign management as some sort of model to aspire to just exposes the stupidity of the newfag fanbase who can't do simple addition, subtraction, or planning beyond "build the same 3 buildings in every settlement in the game"
here's the guide based on a few hours of 3K of how buildings work together generally:>Green resource: Build green and blueBlue is water which makes green grow!>Purple Resource: Build Purple and Red, Blue if you have space>Blue Resource: Blue and PurpleMaybe put a few Taoist temples for public order and an administrative building for managing corruption.There, I saved you some time.
Based on having 2 armies and the units that are in the gravetard's armies you can deduce from their upkeep that he is playing on normal campaign difficulty because the increase in upkeep is only 2%
>>325627049Bannermen were pretty much captains, right?
>>325627817but why actually manage an empire when I can make man-things go boom?
>>325627316Not him but there's a lot of factors that impact your economy that makes it tedious in the long run and that's beyond just color coding>peasant economy is decided by settlement population and seasons; where profit per turn constantly fluctuates and winter will be worst>commerce (blue) is based on your trade partners current economic standing and how goods you can trade, if your trade partners are poor, you get jackshit>industry (purple) is the only static and reliable form of economy however, you need to find mining nodes first so if you start in a mostly agrarian territory dependent on crops, then good luck waging war during winterThis also sounds neat immersion wise until you find out the AI cheats and can afford 2-3 full armies while having only 1 province.
>>325627571I think it has to do with the anachronistic nature of the setting, mass produced firearms made armor mostly obsolete in real life, warhammer having both mass produced fire arms but also tons of retards with axes probably means your troops are wildly varied in needs. Technologically primitive cultures (comparatively) such as the Aztec and Maori showed armor wasn’t necessary to have success in melee focused warfare. So perhaps imperial state troops have largely unchanged survival rates against Chaos warriors regardless of armor, so the empire chooses to not spend too much to equip them. Alternatively it’s a setting designed to sell toys to middle age British men and you shouldn’t look at the lore too hard.
>>325625736Skellies don't need to die completely and replenish within a turn or two especially if you're a Ghorstchad, they are the optimal way to get Grave Guard. If you're going for Grave Guard with recruitment buildings and think that's faster than with battle sites you're objectively a shitter and a brainlet who can not into math.
>>325627689Yeah, but this is also no inconsistency when it comes to chaos other races. I guess you could roll with "greatsword are to heavy for normal human to carry, so there is no difference between state troops and elite troops. Besides more flamboyant style." >>325627805Well true to that. >>325628048>Alternatively it’s a setting designed to sell toys to middle age British men and you shouldn’t look at the lore too hard I guess this also works. I just find it weird. Greatswords suppose to be kewl. So would make sense to some people wear full plate with helmet, even if this pure visual.
>>325628037I was wondering why my economy seemed to fluctuate so much in 3K, and this explains it. I didn't raise new armies or hire new lords and my income would fluctuate.
>>325627659What edition were those from? 6th edition empire just had frilly shirts for everyone but the captain from what I saw.
>>325628037>waahhh i actually have to think about what i doyou are just proving my point
>>325628316I play total war to see armies fight. I don't enjoy the busy work of managing finances. Eat shit.
>only have my laptop with me>can't play Warhammer 2what LL should I start with tomorrow evening?
>>325627983They were typically either the right hand man of the Captain or someone held in high esteem for a great deed by the regiment that they were worthy of holding the standard.Also this absolute hero lived to the end, survived absolutely every horrific engagement including being the anvil upon which three feral mammoths broke.
>>325627335Don't you mean Steel Division? Steel Battalion is some mech game.If you mean Steel Division/Wargame style gameplay, I think you're right. Who knows, though, I don't even know if we will ever get a proper 40k RTS ever again.
>>325628198You also have to consider Aesthetic fidelity, and at a glance recognition factors.If the greatswords were fully armored they look out of place in the diorama spreads GW uses to shill the army, especially for a non centerpiece unit like state troops. In total war, you’d need to be able to tell what units are what quickly in battle, since the sizes of models are generally more uniform than the tabletop it’s likely that an armored silhouette would be confused mid battle against chaos/brettonia.
>>325628316Well one fair criticism is the game doesn't tell you these things, it'd be nice if actually showed you how much things would change, for example if they showed a percentage modifier per season for your income.I shouldn't have to go outside of the game to find these things out.
What's up with the AI where sometimes it has this ridiculous hateboner for you when you don't even remember meeting them or even that they exist, they march halfway across the world to raid you and die immediately>chilling in the badlands as greenskins>beating up dwarfs and border princes>suddenly around turn 90 nakai shows up and wars me>kill him instantlythen>chilling in sylvania as vampires>beating up dwarfs>suddenly around turn 30 random single settlement tribe of norscans shows up and starts raiding me>he had to walk through multiple imperial factions to reach my landsame thing happened to me as VC but it was wood elves that time.
>>325628601AI prioritizes the player.It's just an artificial way of making the game more difficult because programming RTS AI is hard.
Has anyone else noticed that the Empire AI cheats relentlessly when it gets into trouble? I just finished Grom's long campaign and when I took a huge chunk out of them they started doing some absolute bullshit. Killing LL's who then reappear on the AI's turn to attack me, recruiting regiments of renown the turn after they're destroyed, confederating then attacking me with the confederated armies in the same turn.At one point my night gobbos who have had no leadership problems all game got into a fight with Volkmar and half the army routed before the battle lines even joined. I've not noticed this with any other AI, not even High Elves, it just seems like Empire gets a massive boost when they're getting smashed
>>325628601AI specifically hates the player, there's even a mod that turns anti-player bias off and it makes the game much better and the lategame slightly more challenging.
>>325628601I feel you there, Alarialle showed up in southern badlands and declared war on me out of no where as Wurzzag
>cathay has one horned ogres>basically referring to japanese oniGW is fucking mixing asian mythology all over again. Cathay will be a mess presentation wise.
>>325628469I don't think I will confuse chaos warriors with reiksguard (foot), but maybe you right. I don't have too much problems telling what units suppose to be, since battle indicators usually tell you enough. On other hand there is small problem with empire state troops. They all look same.
>>325628381total war has always been about combining turn based empire management with real time battles, thats the whole point of the game. If you don't want to deal with rubbing two brain cells together to build an empire just go play quickbattles
>>325628416Yeah, Steel Division. No idea how I managed to get the two mixed up especially since I've never even played Steel Battalion and own both Steel Divisions. The reason I always say Steel Division over Wargame is that it places a much greater emphasis on infantry actually going out and fighting instead of being relegated almost entirely to 'missile launcher in a building' while vehicles do all of the actual fighting.
>>325628601The AI always prioritizes the player, it's the player vs the AI after all. All the factions are controlled by the AI.
Who's in the wrong here?
Why release a cinematic trailer and no gameplay? It's not like this is some mystery where we do not know what the game is going to be like, since we know that it is based on TWW and TWW2.
>>325628672I just assumed Empire had research to make wound recovery quicker or my mods were fucking it up. But I was having the same lord show up on opposite sides of empire when I was fighting them as tomb kings
>>325628672AI cheats for all factions. I had a Grom campaign where I pushed Eataine into the chaos waste and with the one level 2 minor settlement they had in an area where they should be getting massively decreased income, they had enough cash to send 2 stacks and then some of lothric sea guards at me.
>>325628672There's a good chance the Empire's LLs have taken turns beating Vlad and getting his one-turn wound recovery trait.
>>325628601The AI is designed to do things like thatThey'll send armies across continents and the seas to harass you even as their own settlements get razed to the ground in their absenceThey'll march through attrition and even trespass on other faction's territories to get around to an annoying angleAnd most of all they'll go after any unwalled settlements you have over anything else if at all possibleIf you ever install some of those mods that kill off even just a few of these AI vs Player behaviors the game plays much differently and feels less retarded, though this makes things easier
>>325628742Read up on some of the shit that gets changed by playtesters, only the most inept of human beings test games so they are dumbed down significantly.
>>325628827BothThe dwarf player for complaining on steam forums which is filled by furries and bootlickersThe skaven players for defending shit and unfun mechanics
>>325628672>>325628892I thought that had to do with the Empire fighting Vlad early game which gives it's LL his trait that let's them recover 4 turns early.
>>325627367>I mean dismountedMaybe? Dismounting tends to be of very niche use. Cav is at it's best when it is surrounding and demolishing vulnerable enemies and instigating a mass route after killing their general
>>325628827The absolute lorelet having his immersion broken by the most treacherous backstabbers of a race of treacherous backstabbers treacherously backstab him.
>>325628827Op for being bad, CA for how the AI can ambush when you clearly see them.
>>325628827ca for letting the skaven keep stalk stance despite them absolutely 100% no longer needing it considering how much other bullshit they get
>>325628827>Noooooo you can’t just use ambush tactics to take down a superior foe! Muh Dwarfmanii are outnulbered!!!!!!The utter state of midget players. ..
>>325628827I'd say the skaven AI defender since there is nothing fun about fighting them
>>325628770That's nice and all, but I just find it unimmersive if say the everchosen is coming to invade the empire with a massive horde of chaos warriors and karl franz can't muster a defense because he's bankrupt.Imagine how the siege of praag would have turned out>Kislev: Magnus, help us, Asavar Kul is going to destroy all of the known world!>Magnus: Lol sorry, can't. I just bought a bitching new steam tank but I can barely afford the maintenance on this thing
>>325628827The dwarf for playing dwarfs and complaining about playing dwarfs.
>>325628827fuck dwarf players. they might as well be histfags
>>325628981This game has to have the most spiteful ai of any game I've ever played, that's the best word I can think of to describe it.
>>325629150you are just admitting that you are too stupid to play the game and wishing for it to be dumbed down so you can
>>325629286no offense but the "empire management" has largely been a joke for awhile now.
>>325628827Everyone, but especially CA
>>325629150my man, custom battles are available to you whenever you want, you can even play major lore battles anytime.
>>325629278That's probably the best way to describe it>oh no you're sieging my last settlement and I only have one half dead army left>time to run off in forced march to raid all your settlements and attack some unwalled minor
>>325628872Small bastion of the orient pls understand>>325628998That makes sense, shame Vlad is always dead by the time I get through black fire pass.>>325629150I think you’re just not playing the right game for you. Seems to me that the older warhammer rts is more your speed, empire management is the only thing that is remotely engaging about total war warhammer since battles tend to devolve into ai is bad and then you win
>>325629408This is why I love playing wood elves.>Oh you're trying to attack my outpost? >Go on, it doesn't matter to me at all and I'll take it back later.
>>325628827is the steam forum filled with such butthurt? maybe i should check it out
>>325629286finding an aspect of a game unenjoyable isn't the same as being too stupid to be able to play it

>>325629654>news today AHAHAHAHAHAHA, no. t.someone at CA probably.
>>325629643But battles just come down to attack artillery with fast guys, attack other guys with magic win.Like if you were talking about playing mp I’d get it but the ai in this game is utter trash and battles are largely irrelevant since the ai army just shows up next turn regardless.
>>325629818its 4chan bro........
>>325629818No, it's often much worse.
>>325629850 Liggermanii are boring to play tho.
>>325629661I'm not even the anon you were arguing with, you fool.It's almost like you have no real argument. Yes, Warhammer has a very simplified building system, is that a problem? Not necessarily, though being able to specialize cities/provinces more would make for more interesting campaigns, but there's a balance between being tedious and being fun.
>>325629847I'd protect her smile (and blood throne (for Isabella too))
>>325629485Yes. If you want to see delicious butthurt, you should go check the 3k forums.It's a goddamn goldmine over there.Here's an examplehttps://steamcommunity.com/app/779340/discussions/0/3103512538091960894/
>>325629850They have a wide variety of units, not just saursmanni for the first 50 turns until you get T4. Starts on the donut are boring through but Morathi's more aggressive AI certainly helped.
>>325629953nigga the dark secret is they're all boring to playit's a boring game
>>325628981I looked into AI mods and apparently the hateboner only exists in VH and legendary, is this true? I usually play on normal and still seem to get hateboner'd

>>325629883well I try to make it more fun by mixing up my armies and not just spamming elite units. My point is if I want empire management I play the other TW games, Warhammer I mainly play for the fantastical units and the variety in the battles. Although some factions campaign mechanics are amazing in WH I'll give the game that

>>325629980>simping for Isabella by supporting one of her rivalsBruh
>>325630125I've never heard anyone say that but then I don't look at steam comments or reddit. The AI only gets fatter statistic cheats depending on the difficulty you pick which theoretically can effect their decision making when they have tons of extra recruitment slots so they can build armies faster than any player possibly could but what they choose to do doesn't actually change. Its part of the reason why higher difficulties aren't really a challenge so much as they're more annoying and tedious because you're just countering more obvious bullshit than usual.
Cold blooded cunnyseour!

>>325630190How in the hell does a post about a lack of recent content devolve into Mutt politics?Are Americans really that obsessed?
>>325630493Haddon is an infamous historyfag autist in forums and often goes into other history/realism/semi-history games forums to bicker about inane shit.He would go into long rants that arrows could pierce steel armor when people were complaining why arrows did so much damage in bannerlord.
Elves use artillery, which uses gunpowder. Why don't they use other gunpowder-based weapons, like rifles?
>>325630419You'd need tier 3, the building and then start recruiting them with 2 turn timer.Now that I think about it, horsemen with throwing axes and chariots would be best bet, since it's a rare matchup where Norsca isn't outranged.
>>325630760>Elves use artillery, which uses gunpowder.No.
Beastmen news soon.The reddit sheep grow restless.
>>325630739literally all it would take to disprove him is this videohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMT6hjwY8NQSince Crossbows have a higher initial velocity (I'm not too sure what the appropriate term is for an arrow, but think muzzle velocity for guns) and bolts have comparable mass to arrows, it's highly unlikely an arrow fired from a bow during that time period would ever penetrate steel armor.
>>325630760Why would they need guns?
>>325630760>which uses gunpowder
>>325628827>no-furs can't even beat AI stacks
>>325630760What artillery anon?
>>325631128Is that bow made of ice?
>>3256307604e and 5e armybooks for helfs said their bow tech is so superior that they have not yet seen need for gunpowder weapons. Of course back then both bolt throwers and cannons did d4 wounds so they had a point ruleswise.
>>325630760What part of the boltthrower uses gunpowder anon?
>>325630684Something like“Who cares 3chinks sucks.”“American pig dog laughing stock of the world”“Muh muslims in southern china”“Muh niggers”“Niggers deserve to be shot”Here comes second American who says“White nazia deserve to be shot”And it just goes from there
>>325631340The shooting part? What, are you telling me they're just giant slingshots?
>>325631327yeah but bolt throwers don't make a cool boom noise with lots of smoke so its not as cool

>>325628827Dwarfs are fucking shit against Skaven.
Damn I love free skeletons and using mortars to kill infantry instead of targeting the enemy artillery.Anyone else feel the same?
>>325631567From a different (and worse) game but applies here.
>>325631425It is a ballista anon, it uses its arms and stays to transfer energy to the projectile and propell it.
>>325631425Nigger, it's just magic ballista, what's wrong with you.
>>325631567https://science.howstuffworks.com/crossbow.htmNigga you are on the internet, there is no reason to be ignorant
Next you guys are going to tell me this artillery doesn't use a powder mechanism
>>325628827skaven are fucking bullshit what else is new? i too love losing units simply because the other factions has more mechanics than me
>>325631816No that one actually does; I swear you’re being regarded on purpose

Gonna do it, lads. Gonna give Malekith's crazy world of whack-a-mole another try after beating Angrund and mostly beating Pestilens, which are also hard starts. Though I think the Delves take the cake as regards complexity of gameplay and aggressiveness of playstyle needed to even get the campaign rolling.

>>325632964The black hunger claims another one. Sad..
>>325629014Yeah I understand that. I was just thinking about baiting out spear infantry with katana cav, leading them away from the main force and then engaging them dismounted. I was wondering if dismounted katana cav can take on yari samurai or at least ashigaruI would assume that without any spear units to oppose them my Fire Cav would be free to do whatever the fuck it wants with the rest of the enemy infantry
>>325630760>Elves use artillery, which uses gunpowderZoomers, everyone.
I started Vortex HE for the first time and not even 50 turns in and I am bored. Why are they so boring?
>>325633456donut is boring and too easythere's nothing to do there after initial clean up
>>325633456Because they have nobody to fight except other HE
>>325632964Play him in ME doofus
>>325632964You started Vortex campaign fool-fool.
>>325633456Because they are literally the vanilla faction of vanilla factions.The only semi-intreseting HE playthroughs are Mr Edge and possible Mr Grim due to their faction mechanics
>>325633456>sit on donut surrounded by friendlies>drouche bags busy getting mouldered >coast is fighting lizards>kangs are busy>just waiting to confed donutGee I wonder why
>>325633456>no enemies worth a damn on the donut>can easily confed and snowball>play the same exact way throughout the entire campaign, all that changes is your spears become phoenix guard/silverin and your archers become sisters>donut itself is intensely boring>natural rivals can't do shit to youIn my ideal wh the helfs would be the notWRE campaign, where the donut is under serious external pressure from turn 1 and you have to balance your econ early by stretching every penny and getting the most out of your basic bitch spearmen/archers, only being able to move on the offensive in the late game to make up for how powerful their roster is

What is Alarielle's donut like?
>>325633776>>325633694this2 minor factions of DE and 1 faction of GS doesn´t spice up the donught enough. It should be beset on all sides, possible only the inner part of Ulthuan that is held by HE and some of the gates are in control of enemies.
So if you play Avelorn you're confirmed queer, right? It's by far the most feminine faction.

>>325633997>not knowingly choosing only females in any game so you can rest your eyes on the goodies what are you some kind of gay?
>>325633997I only play factions i coom to, ie skaven and elves.
>>325633456Play Eltharion or Aleaf, they don't need to stay on the doughnut besides the former securing his province and fight varied enemies. Teclis was also OK, but his faction was buffed to high heaven and you'll have to deal with dozens of chaos stacks spawning on top of you every other turn.

How do people even have fun in ME? There's nothing to do. Not to mention, macroing ten different armies at the same time is boring as shit.
>>325634585wasn't the first crusade something like a grudge avenging expedition to begin with?
>>325635059>There's nothing to doAre you playing Lothern again Victor?
>>325628416I would like a game in the vein of DoW2, but instead of growing an army you start the game with all your units more like the tabletop game. You get 2000 points to build your army and just deploy it against your oponent. Campaign wise it should be like This allows quicker matches and you can focus more on the actual combat or objectives to capture.
>>325634908I have to agree, I feel embarrassed for the AI whenever they're backed down to a single settlement and they give some pathetic peace request.Going out fighting is at least respectable.

>>325643114They are shit that doesn't mean you should never use them. They're good for stopping cavalry and holding down big targets but when you're past turn 30 you shouldn't need them anymore because you can get shades and shit instead
>>325643282>>325643375Don't Shades/Blackguard get melted by ranged, though? Since they don't have shields.

SKAVEN BUFF NOW! I AM TIRED OF WAITING AND PLAYING THE MOST USELESS FACTION IN THE GAME! I BOUGHT ALL THE FUCKING DLC CA AND THEY STILL SUCK. STUPID COCKSUCKING NIGGERS AT CA KEEP ON NERFING SKAVEN HOW CAN WE EVEN COMPARE TO BEASTMEN OR CHAOS FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU
>>325644928dwarfs need periodic breaks to write down all the new grudges you've made.
has anyone ever seen this?
>>325644685Aren't kaijit just mutant elves?Anyway TES really clicked for me when I found out that it was based on some guy at Bethesdas homebrew dnd world. Explains shit that makes no sense whatsoever like the Bosmer Green Pact.
Oh my it''s another episode of disgusting beastility degenreates chimp out again, and yet peole said it's not the fault of ratoids.....lolRatoids and anti-cathay trolls are twop major vermines that destroy /twg/.
>>325645235Die in fire chink, hope india nukes you.
>>325645192you have to play the troll toll to get to the boy's soul
>>325645063>WHEN I PLAY ON ULTRA UNIT SIZE AS SKAVEN EVERYONE ELSE SHOULD BE FORCED TO PLAY ON SMALL UNIT SIZEscything through like a million clanrats and skavenslaves with elite infantry is pretty fun tho
>>325645192Yes, for a pretty long time, all the way back to warhammer 1 I think, not very often though.
Why do necromancers crumble? Aren't they humans that do necromancy, not immortal vampires or skellingtons
>>325645575rogue empires weren't in 1?
>>325645861Because fuck you.Why do vampires only have access to two lores when they're supposed to be capable of every human lore except life.
>>325646030> tfw no mod to give all the factions their missing lores
>>325645861decrepit bodies held together purely by their necromantic power or some shit
>>325646030no they werent
>>325645192Be glad it is not Vashnaar the real Everchosen
>>325646238It cost extra, but vampires were capable of taking fire/heavens/etc.
>>325645960my brain is melting I guess
>>325646030I feel you. Skinks should also have access to all lores except life, yet we are cursed to have only two
Is there a mod to remove those rogue armies that literally spawn right next to your settlements? They're so annoying to deal with, and they stand there until their rep towards you gets so low enough they just declare war on you.
>>325646598just murder them for some free money bro
>>325645192> tfw saw a dwarf rogue empire take over part of the donut for like 30 turns> they had the sword of khaine for a whileultimately tyrion's autism overtook them but it was neat so see for a while
>>325646598git gud, retard. Rogue armies are easy money and exp farms
>>325646749>Vashnaar the Emperor of Rape knocks on your capital at turn 10
>>325646691The best was during the vamp coast nerf patch and minor powers were rising up across the world. Blue Vipers taking Lustria, Ostland conquering the empire. Was treating sailing to the other side of the world never knowing what was going to be there
>>325646691>some literal who clanless dwarf just randomly shows up on your magic elf island one day>goes on a rampage and captures a city and the fucking sword of khaineJust the thought of it sends me into a laughing fit
>>325646404youre talking about about special upgrade, and this is small family company, nobody got their special upgrades>>325646570because they only had access to beasts and heavens, else you be seeing slanns with each signature spell
>>325645861Because nigga they old.
>>325646868>"Why hello there strange elf, what can I do for you this fine day?"
>>325646868Why is Vashnaar an elf anyway? Isn't he supposed to be some chaos dude?
>>325647619elves can fall to chaos, anon.
>>325647660The story about him said that he was a chaos lord with an army aided by dark elf mercenaries. Much more likely he was a chaos lord, CA are just dumb. Especially since he's the male dreadlord which is ranged variant, what kind of non-magic chaos lord would use pussy ranged weapons.
>>325645192oh, they actually have 6 settlements. interesting
>>325647193>>325646691>>325646946i believe it was these fellows, since they're one of the only dwarf rogue empires.https://totalwarwarhammer.gamepedia.com/Doomseekersthe name's fitting.
>>325647496Would be funny if some event had all the rogue armies just appear in a blob and sweep across a region or something.
>>325648097It's quite common for rogue armies to take settlements, their range in garrison strength can be quite funny.
>>325647891the only exposure i've had to the story was from an anon here who said his identity wasn't clear and that he worked with dark elf mercs a lot, so that it could've been possible. just assumed that was true.>>325648097i've had one of the wood elf armies take over half of norsca before.
>>325647891>Noooooo you can't use ranged tactics against the enemy to win your battles! You have to either get your soul eaten by the chaos goderinos or run at the enemy with an ax like an idiot noooooo!>"Haha hellcannon go boom"You ever wonder why those southerners keep beating you anon?
Had to quit my Azhag campaign mid-turn because the battles were beginning to wear on me. This game can be relentless sometimes, and fighting evenly matched battles is not so much fun as it is stressful.
>>325648634It's because they're weak and treacherous and hide behind walls and ranged weaponry, right?
>>325644685Nothing.Furries just ruin everything they come into contact with.
>>325648852A big even battle or two is good.A dozen is just repetitive, and worse, makes the first couple big battles less special.
>>325648634I miss when hellcannons had tree models instead of just 1
>>325648852close battles are fun for me, but having to play out super easy battles because autoresolve is trash is the boring part
>>325648359His race is indeed not explicitly stated, but I'd figure dark elves would make up the core of the army, instead of just mercenaries, if he was a dark elf.
>>325649107the AI being literally Skaven regardless of race is even worse. Its relentless microing, tarpitting and sniping tactics are very annoying indeed.
>>325648634>win>commit sudoku nothing personel, chaos gods
>>325649452I've found that pursuing retreating units off the map helps greatly reduce the annoyance that comes from when the enemy returns again and again. But that requires some micro or pausing
>>325649884NOOOOOO YOU GOTTA LIVE AND BE A TOOL FOR OUR GAMES YOU CANT JUST MAKE YOUR DEATH YOUR OWN
>>325649452suddenly made me realize how much cooler racial AI personalities would be instead of just>hang back and do nothing if more ranged>full retard rush if less rangedBut that would require an actually competent AI
Gib empire themed army ideas
...moo?News tomorrow, r-right fellas?Raa roo and all that?
>>325650504maybetrailer is usually on wednesday or thursday, which means teasers are usually on tuesday or wednesdayno teaser today, so, if there's no teaser tomorrow it's not this week.
>>325650504>News tomorrow, r-right fellas?>Raa roo and all that?No.
>>325649884>Give your eternal soul to the CG's in exchange for things like, power, armor, steeds, and other boons. Guaranteeing you eternal torment and suffering upon death.>"I'll just kill myself That'll show em!"Norscan intelligence everybody.
Which RAAA ROOOO will be added?I want moonclaw for the memes
>>325651028>"Only then, when you see that all future DLC are Skaven... then you will have my permission to die."
I hope they remove the ra roo voiceline this shit is mad cringe
>>325651408Taurox or Ghorros are the only realistic dlc options. You might get moonclaw as a flc or legendary hero (or maybe tech reward lord like the greenskin ones)
>>325651454Skaven vs Skaven DLC soon
wait, how long have mutant rat ogres been a single entity unit? I swear they were a pack like regular rat ogres before
>let's play the game at a higher difficulty>but let's also cheeseDoesn't that defeat the whole purpose of playing on a higher difficulty? Besides, you shouldn't HAVE to cheese. Wouldn't you be able to mitigate, and eventually overcome the debuffs Legendary gives you with army buffs from Lords? Melee defense/morale, for instance.
>>325651734In-game?? Always.Table top? Idk. I don’t even know if they actually had rules on TT.
>>325652049I too use this as an excuse whenever I misremember anything
>>325652174You're a faggot though
>>325651608>GhorrosWhat should his unique campaign mechanic be?
>>325652403Centigor RoRs based on LLs he defeats
>>325652403When he gets knocked down.He gets up again.You're never going to keep him down.
>>325652403>Ghorros had a great number of centigor sonsthose poor empire and bretonnian women
>>325651408>>325651608Why not Ungrol? Imagine capturing the Tzarina with him...
>>325652403Idk maybe taking more prisoners increases horde growth and gives unique units? >mfw they add a breeding mechanic with captured female lords
>>325652582tfw no beastwomen
>>325652579>UncelsNO THANK YOU I don't want to see Ungor(hand guns)
>>325652403With all that rape shouldn't he be a slaaneshi champion??
>>325652403What would it be for any poopee? Raze some shit, defeat some enemies, worship da bad moon, get some rewards.
>>325652814>Schismfag>500 posts earlyBruh.
>>325652965Why would Settra hate elves?
>>325652582>fay enchantress gives centigor ROR with bound life spells>aranessa gives centigor ROR with anti-large and regen>morathi gives centigor ROR with bound dark spells>crone hellebron gives ROR with damage boosting actives>alarielle gives centigor ROR with magic bows>isabella gives centigor ROR with bound vampire spells and the hunger>cylostra gives centigor ROR with ethereal
>>325652403>greater bestial rage penalties for encamping>greater horde growth for sacking citiesk>centigors buffs
>>325653032He doesn't, it's a lazy memeTomb Kings fight dwarfs more than elves
>>325653032He doesn't, it's just a memri meme. Tomb Kings hate Nagash but after that they mostly hate dwarfs for stealing their gold.
>>325652403>implying they won't add the ungor incel king instead
>>325651825>Doesn't that defeat the whole purpose of playing on a higher difficulty?Autism says that cheesing IS a way of mitigating the debuffs. It's effective too.Besides when you post your screencap of your very hard achievement. You can tell the idiots on here to get good and lie to yourself that you're a pro.
>>325653032Why would anyone not hate elves?
>>325653032they gave him a hard time way back when because he made the first human empire that bothered them
>>325652814earlynigger get the rope
>>325653258>Living Nehekhara army fighting together with a high elf army against daemonsThat sounds kino as fuck
>>325653258Settra also teamed up with Druchii to destroy Sartosa once.
>>325653449That is the skelly era, Settra wasn't alive when the Black Pyramid was built.
>32 more posts
>>325654146earlyfag is starved for attention
>>325654146post about how much we hate MP or the ratfags or something
>>325653032He doesn't at all, in fact Khemri - High Elves relations seem pretty good lore-wise. No major fights, pretty much only positive stuff. He's even accepted a gift waystone from Finubar that protects Ulthuan (and the world) after they've adorned it with pictures of him slaying monsters. It's a Memri TV meme, nothing more. He's more likely to hate Dwarfs if they stole his gold, but I can't remember anything like that involving Settra in particular, so he probably only really hates vampires, Chaos worshippers and Nagash.

>>325653341Isn't there a mural of elves and nehekarans standing side by side?
>>325654340Goddamn I sure hate f*rfags and stuff.Let's just throw them all in an oven or something.
Remind me why they banned coomer mods for 3K when they make assets like this?
>>325654723They never banned anything. Grace sperged out but it didn't result in anything
>>325654723>oiled up ass for the beastchadsRAAROO
>>325651028what kind of rat creature is this
>>325654693Yeah, dunno the context
>>325626182Base it off Epic. At that scale you have room to have all the iconic units, including titans and superheavies, and the fact that the basic unit is something like an imperial guard company would do a lot to alleviate the complaints that the total war engine is only capable of smashing square formations of units together. At the company scale and above, that's what you're dealing with anyway. Plus it would be an unexplored niche in 40k games. We've had squad and platoon level games in DoW, now give us an honest to god Epic/Apocalypse scale game.
>>325655076Seems pretty clear, dabbing on chaos.
>>325626182>40k known for massive battles and millions if not billions of casualties >for some reason fags cling to squad sized battles like like a OP clings to cocks
>>325655635>WW2 battles had thousands if not millions of casualties>therefore, troops just walked around in massive block formationssasuga retard-kun
>>325626182You're right. Current CA is too lazy to do that, they already removed sieges and naval combat I doubt they will add something like space combat, naval combat and aerial combat just for a 40k game.
>>325655784name one WW2 battle that had casualties of a million or more
>>325646946>start Mazda game during that time>fiddling around in Lustriabowl, almost have it cleaned up>heading up north to fuck with Mally now>run in to Vashnaar>hmm, should probably remove him before he becomes a pr->18 settlements>head to Southlands instead
>>325655979>small family settlement
>>325655981only because it was a siege and the participants decided to autoresolve it
>>325652814Earlyfags should be permanently banned.
