>>351624859Damn this gook is fast, where can I find his socials?
>>351624634This is from Endless Legend.
>>351624859Jesus, I thought she was being disemboweled from the thumbnail.
>>351625082She'll have something deep in her bowels soon if you know what I mean
>cathay men are whiteIs CA pushing WMAF?
Whoah, Kairos looks like THIS!? Think I'm going to join the nearest Tzeentch cult.
>>351624972That's the point. Its identical to the city showed in the trailer and it is wholly and entirely unfitting to the aesthetic of Warhammer Fantasy. Its high fantasy garbage where magic is at the forefront and the first and foremost thing instead of just being something in the background like literally every other race in the setting. Its not Warhammer, but its being shoved in there as if it belongs.
>>351626083He's saying she's going to be fucked in the ass
>>351626083>Being such a coomer you think of Vore before Anal
>>351626572Not him but I guess you are right, not only do Cathay seem like they can everything the Empire can do, only better, they also seem to have more magic flowing through their land than the fucking Helves.
>>351626806To be fair, half the waifus in this game are likely to eat you for one reason or another.
>>351626872We've known powercreep was going to be a serious thing ever since WH2, especially with how blatant it was for Ikit.But I'll admit, Kislev and Cathay are looking pretty fucking stronk. I know that part of that is because their campaign is going to be pretty much barfights with Daemons for 100 turns, but it's still quite apparent. We're a far cry from WH1's Empire statetroopmanii being just barely strong enough to repel a brayherd. We're playing with the big boys now.
Cannibalistic psycho waifus are the best.
>>351626572>>351626872>better at combined arms than empire>more defensive than dwarfs>more magic than elvesPersonally I hate it
>>351627320None of the retardation you shat out is true.>>351627234There is no "WH2 powercreep", you fucking retard. The top 5 strongest factions in the game are all from WH1.
>>351627320You forgot monstrous infantry and flyers.
>>351626872cathay was the equivalent to nekehara at nekehara's height, but never got Nagash-ed.
>>351627461>The top 5 strongest factions in the game are all from WH1Name them.
>>351627075>no witch elf wife to start a family of murder with
>>351627320Han Zei Bu Liangli.Take the Cathaypill, Anon. You'll feel much better once you become one of us. You and me, we'll take Cathay and Kislev and mogg these Daemonmanii (Rainbow) together as we save this world once again. Let the Empkeks waste time with their ebin goldface artillery man chasing orcs and vampires in their backwaters, we can do much greater things in time.
>>351627487I was including it in combined arms but fair point, I should have mentioned it.
>>351627558Highest Levels Of PlayYou wouldn't understand
>>351627520That is a really good way of putting it. While I can't judge the entire faction based on the first trailer I do hope they are shown to have weaknesses.Like, sowing "disharmony" would turn their troops into total garbage or whatever.
>>351626872The problem isn't the balance. Skaven are whole and entirely bullshit without their weapon breaking, High Elves literally print money, Beastmen are the strongest campaign fuckers the AI simply cannot deal with. All of them are better in literally every way than vanilla Warhammer 1 factions.And yet, they all belong, none of them feel out of place. The problem with Cathay is that instead of magic being a background element, its the first thing you see when you look at their city, floating architecture straight out of fucking Avatar. They're not a Warhammer faction, they're an Age of Sigmar one, one look at them and you can fucking tell they clash HARD with literally everybody else, you can tell they simply do not belong.
>>351627613No, I refuse to play a faction I don't like
>>351627558Green tards, Dwarfs, Wood Elves, Vampire Counts, Beastmen.Of these 5 factions, only beastmen became truly strong after their update, all other factions were consistently strong throughout the whole lifecycle of WH2.
>>351627826FANTASY DOESNT BELONG IN MY SUPER SERIOUS GRIM DARK ONLY FANTASYA RAT JUST ZOOMZOOMED BY IN A WHEEL DUDE LMAO!!WHOA DID THAT LADY JUST TURN INTO A DRAGON???HOW DID LIGGERS GET A HOLD OF A THERMOBARIC NICLEAR WEAPIN!!!
>>351627826I get where you are coming from. I only came to warhams through the first game but I've read plenty of books since then.Outside of being cleaner than an Arch Mages butthole they also don't seem to suffer any internal weakness, not even a hint of grimdark.That clashes but I still like the aesthetic, maybe cause it reminds me of Jade Empire.
More news today!
Which Tomb King is fun outside of Settra?I don't think I've ever touched any of them since they were released.
>>351627824The blog implied that the siblings don't get along. Expect lots of infighting and disunity from the get-go.Much like real Chinese history, everyone loves the "harmony", until somebody feels that they've been offended or wronged somehow. Everybody wants the Realm united, until they're not the ones in charge of it.>>351627841I'm very sorry to hear it, Anon.Enjoy hunting ungors in the drakwald, I suppose.
>>351627826Is it anymore out of place than floating pyramids in Lustria? Is it anymore out of place than a floating continent in the middle of the ocean? If Cathay were a WHFB army back when the game was still a thing and the land was described as such, nobody would be complaining today.
>>351624105>>351624114If you want Nippon, Ind, etc to be DLC, make sure Cathay is the most played faction before Mortal Empires. It will send CA the message that "People really like the brand new Cathay army and will probably like more new ones."
>>351628202Khalida is the most fun Kween. Just focus on sneks of all types and archers and you will have lots of fun.
>>351627826>Cathay been around since the Old Ones>Key aspect of Old One/Lizardmen cities is floating buildings>Key aspect of Cathay is floating buildingsWho would have though. Generic Oriental fantasy fits perfectly in warhammer because all the western nations are based of their own generic fantasy. Like look at Bretonnia for fugs sake. High Arthurian medieval fantasy where their direct neighbour is in the fucking renaissance.
>>351627826>And yet, they all belong, none of them feel out of place.You now remember that V*nris of SFO, when asked which race felt the most out of place in the world of Warhammer, answered Ogres.
>>351628272But Cathay is fucking stupid, they couldn't even give us the Dragon Emperor
>>351627901>Counts>Top 5Only due to the fact that CA needs to artificially buff the faction due to the assrape they get from the Ordertide otherwise. The faction is a joke today due to powercreep and confederation for the other races.
>>351628272But I don't.
>>351628230>The blog implied that the siblings don't get along. Expect lots of infighting and disunity from the get-go."Oh, you don't want to buy three kingdoms, 8 princes? well just watch as we make cathay: 8 princes and you fucking love it."
This but with Miao Ying
>>351628465You're getting Dragon Emperor (younger daughter) and Dragon Emperor (younger son), shitlord.
>>351628202I had a blast with Arkhan. Took a mod that gave him Vamp Lore and some extra units and had fun using him on his floating Chariot doing drive-by's with WOD.>>351628230I noticed they don't get along and if the other sibling is an actual thorn in your side I would welcome it.An Empire long divided must unite, long united, must divide.
>>351628509Counts literally won the latest faction wars tournament and have been consistently doing very well in tournaments since forever. No one cares about singlcel shit, since the balance trickling down from MP into your babbymode is completely annihilated by the myriad of campaign cheats.
>>351628541I'm not saying that it's a good thing.I'm just saying that these ideas floating around that Cathay is a magical unity country from Turn 1 don't line up with what we've been told. I'm sure in addition to the siblings not being on the best terms, there will be NPC minor factions that will be diplomatically coded to hate the player more than the average belligerent COLD BLOODED LOGIC AI.
Lmao, is it just me or did they just supplant Zhongli's lore from Genshin Impact into the Dragon Emperor?>is one of the oldest and probably strongest beings in the worldeventually founds his country after a great war (the great catatrophe/collapse of the polar gates)caused a lot of genocides in the past (ogres)is generally aloof and hands off in his governance of the countryprefers to just hand the administrative works to othersmight even be going senilereally really just wants to retire (and in this case cuddle with his wife)The leader of not!china is even a white haired woman.
>>351628609Do you think that>Strength>Steel>Furyis the empire equivalent of>Live>Laugh>Love
>>351628250Battle wizards had giant floating towers too in the lore.
>>351628829oh yeah i just find the idea of "cathay: 8 princes" to be extremely funny after three kingdoms 8 princes flopped.
>>351628250>>351628382The pyramids in Lustria CAN float, but they aren't, and you didn't know they could until ET. And you wouldn't know Ulthuan isn't a natural formation is the books didn't outright tell you because you can't see it as it isn't an in-your-face thing about it.Every place in Warhammer is immediately fantastical in that there's no place in the real world that is built like it, but you know they COULD be built in real life if somebody wanted to and didn't care for health and safety. And then there's Cathay, where the impossibility of its design is the first thing you see, not something you discover by digging deeper into the lore, its magic is present as primary, not as a background, just like it is in Age of Sigmar, and just like it isn't with literally everything else that was made before it.
I'd actually have more respect for you had you just straight up say you don't like Cathay because you're racist. Saying they don't belong in the game because their aesthetic design has floaty shit in it when LIGGGERS also have it is just straight up dishonest. Fuck you nigger.
>>351626572>Magic>Something in the background for literally every other race and factionRetard.
>>351628869GW do this funny thing where half of their ideas are ported straight from other people's franchises.Genshin Impact is the biggest mobile game in human history so far IIRC.I wouldn't be surprised if some of the boys at GW were playing it at and thought "Hmmm, I quite like some of this, let's make a note or two for the design teams".
>>351629082>its magic is present as primary, not as a backgroundNEKEHARA IS POPULATED BY MUMMIES
>>351628889Essentially, the Empire is kinda based and fucked in that wayMy favourite quote from Saltzpyre goes>Do not trust in hope, it will betray you. >Only faith and hatred sustain.
>DUDE VAMPIRE COUNTS ARE WEAK LMAO>counts alone are responsible for the regen cap>counts alone are responsible for the degrading summonsThe fact that the retarded AI cannot play the counts well doesn't mean they're a weak faction, it just means that the AI is retarded.
>>351629082>The pyramids in Lustria CAN float, but they aren'tThey are in every single TW:WH2 Lustria battlemap. So you are complaining about tabletop, not Total War. Off topic. Go complain about tabletop on /tg/.
>>351628869nuGW did remake the nuDragen Emperor but half the things on that list happened literally decades ago.
>>351629293>Counts aren't weak because they used to have things that they don't anymore despite the fact that the faction was originally balanced around having said unlimited regen and persistent summons while lacking ranged and good infantry.
>>351629340This.Total War is ours now. Tabletopfags need to stop living in the past or go back to it and stay there. The future is ours.
>>351628230I'll raze Cathay as Kislev first
>>351629512Yeah, and the Ancient Salamander used to be a counter to horse archers and Jezzails used to be able to snipe lords without requiring 6 of them focus firing on one for 5 minutes.
>>351629512Counts have always been historically strong, you fucking retard. They have been absolutely retardedly strong back in WH1 to the point where entire game mechanics had to be changed to nerf them and even after the nerf and without any significant updates they have been very strong and competitive at the highest level of competitive play throughout the whole lifecycle of WH2. If you think counts are weak, you're simply a retarded shitter. Simple as.
>>351628609>>351628230There's more to this.This notion will be lost to people not familiar with chinese history but its application in cathay is interesting>sons of the emperor that are usually sent to guard the border against barbarians are done because the emperor is lowkey trying to get them killed/not ascend to the throneMiao Ying, the matriarch of the north, fills this positionmeanwhile her brother, is the lord of the south; the south since the times of the Tang dynasty has always been where seat of the emperor was held and Cathay is very much based on the Tang dynasty as seen by their infantrythis means that the dragon emperor favors his sonMiao Ying being sent to guard some backwater region of the country and fighting chaos invasions 24/7 while her brother gets to live lavishly in the capital with his harem of concubines must make her seethe
>>351629567I'm doing it as Slaanesh, fuck I hope the AI spams a lot of ranged female units
>>351629795in warhammer the south borders murdernaga southeast asia, so he's probably just assigned to guard the border against DIFFERENT barbarians.
>>351629795I thought the brother guarded the east?
>>351630010He guards the West. Ogre border.
>>351629795>southWest. Which is still probably safer than north.
>>351629082You'd have to have your head so far up your ass to pretend the lizardmen aren't magical as fuck you'd be tasting your fucking tonsils. Their faction leader rearranged a mountain range that runs the entire length of the planet.
>>351629795A good point but GW nuEmperor seems to be above anything, I don't doubt the siblings could move to any place and he wouldn't care.It also doesn't seem like he can ever be replaced either.
The best thing they could do with Cathay is massive internal strife. I mean, you have one emperor who doesn't actively rule and a gorillion of his children running around being contenders for the throne. China has actually historically had this and it ends in bloody civil war and genocide every single time once the background fuckery reaches a boiling point. The only problem is that to accurately portray this they will need a system of internal politics and intrigue that is much deeper than what the High Elves and Empire currently have. Basically have a way for the siblings of each county to fuck with each other politically and militarily in the background without engaging in open civil war, where no one of them lets any other gain too much power.
>>351630136>probably safer than northI dunno, ogres were so scary that they had to drop a space god on them.
>>351630136Ogres are stronger than Chaos
>>351630256Are Hector/Paris mechanics from Troy good enough for the job?
>>351630189Yeah but you can't tell he did that just by seeing him. If you saw him, he's just be a big ass frog sleeping on a chair. The day to day life isn't supposed to be any more magical than what we have on earth, the common folk would have to go out of their way to plant magical shit in their daily lives. And then you have this AoS garbage where daily magical shit is the norm and not the exception.
>>351630257I thought it was less about them being scary than annoying, Ogres kept raiding shit for many years, never getting beaten back hard enough so the Big D Emperor eventually got sick of their shit and dropped a nuke on their asses.
>>351630136>>351630257Ogres got the emperor to drop a space god on them.Chaos never got the emperor to drop a space god on themQED: ogres are more of a threat to cathay than chaos is and thus if the border is a shit post that's supposed to get you killed, it's the brother who is most supposed to get killed.
>>351630624nah by the time the emperor dropped a nuke on them i believe they were in full on invasion mode
Fireworks are fun!
>>351630563There's no chance this is an argument in good faith. There's nothing remotely ordinary or relatable to the average Joe about how lizardmen society functions or looks.
>>351630639To be fair, dropping a space god into chaos is just asking for it to come and bite you in the ass later.Not even metaphorically speaking either.>>351630791Guess I missed that part, wonder what nulore they will give them.
>>351630136In the article it is said that other dragons question his sanity. He probably spent too much time near the Warpstone Desert and went insane.
>>351630639A tyranid space god.
>>351630668This may be a dumb question, but did any nation or general every try giving their men a surplus of loaded rifles that they all fired in sequence before going back into the standard one rifle to shoot and reload? As in, give your soldier ten rifles each, and once the enemy engages, they fire all ten in a very fast sequence, basically showering the enemy with bullets before they just pick one to reload and shoot again. Wouldn't this create a sort of alpha strike situation where you basically thin the enemy line out very fast before actually engaging them on equal fore and reload times?
>>351630563I too see a big arse frog sleeping in a chair on my daily commute. Only in mornings and never on Tuesdays tho
>>351629085To be fair, Lizards are servants of actual aliens.
Will I be able to do anything fun to the Dragon Emperor when I capture the capital city?
just saw the trailer, did we like it?
>>351630563>The day to day life isn't supposed to be any more magical than what we have on earthShort of floating geography, there's exceptionally little magic that's visible in Cathay until the battle begins. They have balloon-powered fliers and some odd creatures floating around as some kind of air cavalry. Most of the trailer was bog standard Chinese aesthetic, with people forging swords, standing armies marching about the city, even the artillery and gunnery tools are just standard shit. You're overstating your complaint about Cathay by a significant margin while vastly understating every other fantastical thing in the setting.
>>351631118We liked the women and discs
>>351631118You did or else you're a racist chud, and you don't want to be a racist chud, do you?
>>351631118Lore is fine, roster is okay, visual design is meh, recolored WoC units suck.
>>351631118we liked Cathay as a faction and introduction to a new waifu
>>351631013the thing is at that point in time guns are generally rarer than men to shoot them, so instead of givine those ten men ten guns each, you could give a hundred men one gun each. Imagine what happens when your enemy's 100 men all shot at your ten men at once.
>>351631118dragon girl is qt
>>351631118Wait for the shills to leave
>>351631118I think cathay will be fun to play
>>351631118Not a hivemind, but I hated it. I expected nothing and was still disappointed.
>>351631282>the thing is at that point in time guns are generally rarer than men to shoot themI didn't know they were that rare, I thought once muskets were a thing basically every country would sacrifice everything to get armed with them since it flipped warfare on its head.
If the Dragon Emperor and all of his children are immortal, why the fuck do they need Neferata's botched potion of immortality for?
>>351631880Just come out and say you're a racist already, we get it.
>>351631118I liked it
>>351631883it's not so much that they're that rare, but that men to shoot them are absurdly plentiful, so you'll basically never have more guns than you do men to shoot those guns.
>>351632003Mortal nobles, presumably
>>351632003what makes you think the children are immortal?
>>351632003... the non immortal waifus and husbandus of the emperor's children, perhaps
>>351632369Both their parents are god level cultivators, that alone is enough.
>>351631118It was ok, the voiceover was terrible though.
>>351632578That Ben fag really should have learned English from somewhere besides reddit.
>>351632578>As well as being extremely cool
>>351627826based making reddit seethe
>>351632369They're Warhammer dragons. They're all immortal.
>>351630216I just take it that the dragon emperor is GW's way to make an actual living embodiment of the mandate of heaven.In china, the emperor was called a son of heaven and therefore a living deity, and in this regard, the son that the dragon emperor chooses to govern the land has claims to the right to be the de-facto emperor. They could easily just handwave and call him the dragon god instead to make it not confusing but this is my take on GW's rewrite of the lore. Right now, Cathay is an living in an era for 4 kingdoms, and amusingly also corresponds somewhat with the great 4 symbols of chinahttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four_Symbols#Correspondence_with_the_Five_PhasesThe animals being represent aren't accurate but there are some similarities with Zhang Ming being a white dragon who guards the west and of the metal element, and Miao Ying being a black dragon that guards the north the water element probably loosely connected to her being the mistress of storms and rain.
>>351631118I liked everything except the voiceover. Hopefully the city in the trailer indicates what new siege maps will look like. It isn’t multiwalled but it looks like there’s three sides to attack and multiple layers as opposed to just “ayy lmao the map’s a city center and three alleyways”.
>>351627826It's okay anonWe all start out as retarded secondaries, the important thing to do now is to shut the fuck up, stop pretending like you know anything about the lore, and lurk more before posting
>>351633093>looks like there’s three sides to attackI didn't notice anything that hinted at that, any screenshots?
>>351632906>flying towers empireIt would be really cool if CA or GW went through ancient chinese mysticism and added shit from there>inb4 feng shui mechanic
>>351633093Apperantly we got both new and old layouts. The wall in GW's video looked like what we have now.
>>351633164He's right though
>>351633164>important thing to do now is to shut the fuck up, stop pretending like you know anything about the lore, and lurk more before postingTake your own advice
>>351633249No he isn't, even the fucking Empire has flying towers, see >>351632504
>>351633317lmao retard even the EMPIRE has flying towers you absolute downie!Even the >muh dark fantasy faction has flying towers!The fucking Empire!Shut the fuck up!Retard!
>>351633181Go to about 0:26 in the trailer video, right when the trailer starts. It could very well just be a background/cinematic map but I’m holding out hope damnit
>>351632504>>351633164That shit is the extreme exception and not the rule, your average imperial citizen will NOT see that in a lifetime, let alone on their day to day lives. Meanwhile Cathay literally looks like its straight out of Endless Legend where magic is the daily life of everybody >>351624634You're grasping hard and only reinforcing how right he is about this.
>>351633319Yes he is, the point is those flying towers are rare if they're even still canon at all you dumb fuck. Cathay stands out like a sore thumb.
>>351633439>could very well just be a background/cinematic mapThat's what it looks like, the gameplay stuff all looked like the same old single wall siege map with a new paint job.>holding out hopeMy condolences.
>leddit tertiaries damage controlling modern GW over the top silliness againall we have to do is wait for mandalore to say it looks silly like he did with kislev and they'll suddenly stop defending it
>>351633454>It's uncommon so it no longer counts ever in any capacity>This other one is theoretically common in one specific area shown for the trailer, so that means this is an absolutely ubiquitous situation and 100% of Cathay is an Avataresque skylandsAnother poster stated that these "arguments" are probably made in bad faith, so I really shouldn't be replying, but it's odd that this is the hill that you need to die on.
>>351633454unless that average imperial citizen live in altdorf, in which case they will instead proclaim that as a matter of fact they saw a WAY better floating tower last week
>>351633438Which we only see in ancient artwork and lore tidbitsChinas magic bullshit is front and center in the game, nothing like the Empire
>>351633636Hopefully he does a video soon then, the shills have been fucking annoying so far.
>>351633454>>351633510You absolute moron!Fucking downie fetal alchohol syndrome looking retard!Cathay is practically on the border of the Chaos Wastes, Tzeentch flying towers are common there!>>351633667Shut the fuck up you stupid shitter, read any description of the buildings in the Imperial College of magic then say "magic isn't front and center in the Empire"Moron!Buffon!Stop talking!
>>351627826Cathay is more magical than the Empire. Is that a problem?
>>351633627>That's what it looks like, the gameplay stuff all looked like the same old single wall siege map with a new paint job.In that case I’m probably not going to touch WH3 until someone makes a mod that removes siege battles like with WH2. Fucked up
>>351633642The only "bad faith" arguing is from people like you that just throw out the racist card and shower anything the original poster said in a bunch of logical fallacies. Its not wonder he stopped, you could have had the Sigmarines and steampunk DAOARUDIIN®™© from AoS be put in as a faction and you'd be here trying to argue that they somehow fit old Warhammer aesthetics.
>>351633887>that just throw out the racist card I did not, in any capacity, even insinuate that you are racist. But thanks for proving that the Anti-Cathay Tourism Board is just a bunch of /pol/ slideposters who will get bored in a week.
>>351633793keep screaming, tard
>>351633958>I did not, in any capacity, even insinuate that you are racist>>351629085And now you're just using the tried and true "muh meds" "muh /pol/" response you're programmed to like an actual god damn fucking robot without a single fucking shred of self awareness.
>>351633845I'm not even sure if I want to pirate it at this point. It'll come down to if Slaanesh ius any good for me.
>>351634074That wasn't me, faggot. But now I am literally going to just call you a /pol/ schizo because you're demonstrating yourself to be. You don't deserve to be taken seriously, so I'm not going to give you any legitimate responses.
>>351632906Having an Emperor who's literally a Dragon just sounds stupid. It makes as much sense as the CEO of a Mega Corporation being literally a Dragon who's "Dragon Hoard" are bunch of stocks, bonds, and bank accounts or a literal Dragon who somehow ends up running and then becoming the President of the United States.
All of you are wrong

>>351634181Nah I’ll probably still play it eventually since Khorne’s playstyle seems right up my alley, I just really really fucking hate sieges. Even “functional” is too strong of a word for them, let alone “fun” or “well-designed”.
>>351634196So you're admitting you can't actually address the arguments and will just label me what you need to in order to post pepes and wojacks to try and dismiss me. Do you think that'll strengthen your argument? Do you think that'll make the points made any less valid?

>>3516334543 imperial provinces border Sylvania. Two are routinely raided by chaos forces across the sea. Every single imperial province is lousy with beastmen, who need I remind you are still by a majority mutants born from regular people. The idea that the average imperial citizen has a life divorced from fantastical elements is absurd.
Nobody gives a shit about mythical magical land having floating islands. >b-but grounded in reality Whole point of old Catahy lore chink were rich, Nehekharian tier empire pre being skellington and had their own astromancy and feing-shui/ying-yang shit.

Yet you faggots still act like tards. Go back, /v/ermins.
>>351634405>Khorne’s playstyle seems right up my alleyPlay Archaon. Recruit nothing but Chosen and knights. There, you have just played Warhammer 3's Khorne without having to wait 5 months to do it!
>>351634653Fuck sake just shut up (You) projecting shitposting mongrel
>>351634215>>351634391>>351634624Thanks, I'll play Tzeentch now.
>>351634438>you can't actually address the arguments The "Arguments" have already been addressed. Magic is common in the Warhammer Fantasy setting, and floating towers and the magnanimous nature of the Imperial Colleges of Magic are all known factors for anybody in Imperial citizenry that is not just a wheat farm in the middle of literally nowhere. Your anger is towards some floating geography in one singular area in Cathay that was used for a trailer. There's little reason to presume this is any more common than floating magic castles in the Reikland, but your anger is directed at something because you obviously have a political lean that blinds you to fact. The first trailer of this game featured magic front-and-center. The first Empire trailer openly had a magician as a prominent factor in the army. If your only anger is towards maybe seeing floating island infrastructure in Cathay, you are railing at a completely retarded point for a Fantasy setting.
>>351634672But they’re not red…
>>351634581Let’s hope they open up the maps some and make sallying out more viable so brapping magic on the town square stops being the FAST way to do sieges. If we’re really lucky, they might even fix the annoying fucking gate bug that’s been in the game for ages
do not release at the same time as elden ring
>>351634438>can't actually address the argumentsYou expected anything from an obvious shitposter?

>>351635071Stop projecting and go back
>>351634841Friendly reminder the battle portrayed in the first Warhammer trailer is even more fantastical in the GW official art for it. If anything CA dialed it down for their historical purist base.
I don't get it. Weren't we debating several months ago that it's okay for Cathay to be super magical to make it stand out from empire and bretonnia when we were complaining that kislev by comparison shouldn't because it was supposed to be just a bunch of drunk slavs?And now we got that and now you're complaining that that they look out of place? In fact, they aren't magical enough.Where are the magical floating fortresses in the heavens or underwater palaces guard by magical oarfishes and carps?Where are the celestial dragon monks that can punch craters into the broadside of mountains?You schizos are never consistent.
>>351635061the description they've given sounds exactly like how Dwarves play
>>351635052Nah they'll just reveal the meme guy next week with next to no fanfareThen the unit roster will be out a week later for Cathay with Tzeentch being revealed a week laterThey will then disappear for a month to shill for TroyThey did not even reveal Rasputin properly
>>351635061To protect the shooters from counter fire.
>>351635213>weI don't recall that
>>351635261>disappear for a month to shill for TroyAwesome. Hopefully it’s going to be Memnon DLC.
>>351635213We were stating this just a few days ago in fact. It was common parlance that Cathay was going to be an extremely magical nation and everybody would be upset if it was just boring Shang military shenanigans without dragons. Now we get magic and some screeching autist is angry that there's magic.
>>351635061>human vermin faction>skaven asset flipI see no problem here.

>>351634972>annoying fucking gate bugeven just getting reminded about it makes me fucking seethegod CA are such incompetent retards
>>351635213>You>we>theyDon't know about schizos but you're either underage or retarded if you don't understand how /twg/ is not one person and you can't consistently predict, control or mreasure consensus here.
I know EXACTLY what the problem with the aesthetics is. I know the precise reason why the Cathay trailer looked like >>351624634 and not like >>351634841, >>351633164, >>351632504 despite both being just as magical as each other. Just one simple reason, and its not floating towers.The Cathayan border fort, which is constantly invaded by Ogres, Chorfs, Demons, and other horrors that they have to constantly defend against day in and day out... is somehow squeaky fucking clean. Not a single patch of dirt or grime or blemish on the walls and decorations at all, everything is straight out of a North Korean positivity propaganda and the constructs look like they came straight out of the factory yesterday with nary a crack on them. Literally just dirty up the place like it would fucking be if it had to fend off invasions from another world and it wouldn't stand out any more than any other place in the Warhammer world.
>>351635389>common parlanceGetting real sick of your gaslighting
>Chink faction>no bannersChangs are not buying this game
>>351635413The only niggers are Americans. Luckily Memnon isn’t from the US.
>>351635486>The constructs look like they came straight out of the factory yesterdayIt also gets fucking annihilated almost immediately by a greater daemon. It probably was built yesterday to replace the one Kairos turned inside out the night before.
>>351635483Wrong because I'm here in /twg/ for years and I know for a fact that it's the same 100 posters who frequent this thread regurgitating the same opinions over and over UNTIL it doesn't match their agenda.This place is literally no better than /v/, which I guess Warhammer is partly to blame for attracting those subhumans.This place was unironically better for discussion in its Rome 2 days despite the absolute state of the series.
>>351635486I can concede that it looks pretty clean on the whole, but every single fort for sieges looks like they were literally constructed the morning of the siege. Even the Imperial ones are exceptionally clean for the materials they were made out of, to say nothing of the High Elf forts.
should i play grom or cult of sotek next. and should i play with SFO or not?
>>351635832>no better than /v/Well fucking go back there and stay there you obnoxious lying shitposter
>>351635873Gromsotek blows in comparison to all the other lizard factions sfo or no though the unit rebalance makes his units not so absolutely trash tier
>>351635261God I hope you’re right and they disappear for two month again. This place was so much better during the drought.
>>351635873If you pick Teeny then use SFO. I say this as someone who doesn't even like SFO most of the time.
>>351627826>the first thing you see when you look at their city, floating architecture straight out of fucking AvatarThe architecture isn't floating, it's built on rocks that are floating. If it's a stable, if fucked up, feature of the landscape then it's no more magical than Azyr winds causing consistent torrential rainfall in some places and actively less fantastical than floating pyramids or towers.The only issue I would have is if peasants lived in those areas. Wizards building fuck-off mansions and gambling with their souls in magic-dense regions is a common trope in and outside of WHF, but if Long Dong the ricefucker is drying his laundry out there I would consider that retarded from a practical and thematic point of view.
>>351635720>>351635869All that demon warp fire and fireworks handcannons and yet the trees are perfectly cut and groomed and still standing though? Ulthuan and Athel Loren get away with it because they're not under constant invasion and even then the part of Ulthuan that Malekith did make multiple landfalls on is pretty desolate due to all the fighting. If a place has to hold back constant invasions, whitewashing all the walls and regrowing all the trees just right right way alongside the road really aren't going to be top priority for a place like that.Literally just make it look like it actually has suffered constant attacks over the years and it wouldn't feel like its a perfect world propaganda, it would feel like fantasy China holding out against demons, just like we have fantasy HRE and fantasy France doing the same.
>>351635869>>351635486Blame that on CA.Have you seen how sterile empire state troops look like?Have you seen steam tanks?Steam tanks are supposed to be centuries old but the damn thing is polished as if it was factory new.The people complaining about cathay's lack of grimdark should also take a look at the lizardmen, another super strong faction from the days of the old ones.NOT A SPLOTCH OF DIRT on any of their troops. Saurus and Skinks look like rubber toys and possess bright eye bleeding colors.
>>351635720>meanwhile the dragon emperor is wondering why his daughter keeps ordering a bunch of constructs every day and draining the imperial coffers
>>351636250>whitewashing all the walls and regrowing all the trees just right right way alongside the road really aren't going to be top priority for a place like thatbut muh feng cultivation
>>351636353>The people complaining about cathay's lack of grimdark should also take a look at the lizardmen, another super strong faction from the days of the old ones.>NOT A SPLOTCH OF DIRT on any of their troops. Saurus and Skinks look like rubber toys and possess bright eye bleeding colors.In game, yes you can't really avoid that with CA, but in the trailers and showcases the lizard buildings are pretty overgrown and don't look like they've had the vegetation around them tended to perfection.
Ok. grom on vortex or mortal empires? Last ME i did was Clan moulder, Last vortex I did was Avalorn.
>>351636250The issue is that while I agree 100% that some good weathering could be applied to a number of these buildings that most of the terrain is not going to look like it was just suffering an attack because they need to keep rebuilding shit. It will actually look brand new before every invasion because I'm positive most of the construction is literally happening between invasions. My point is that the Imperial structures and most other siege areas look like they were built that morning as well. I specify Ulthuan because it looks like it's made out of fucking porcelain in literally every invasion. Even the Tomb Kings walls look like they have been getting regular maintenance every single hour of each day beyond the pyramids in the back.
>>351636650ME is better imo
>>351636650VortexME is trash
>>351636369>Are you building jade golem army worthy of great Cathay empire, my fellow daughter?
I think we've all missed the real discussion we should be havingWhat models in the trailer have obviously been directly ripped from 3K for ultimate Charlemagne efficiency?
>>351636650MEVortex is shit
>>351636250>Athel Loren>Not under constant invasion
>>351635486good catch, I didn't notice but my brain did
>>351636786I wouldn't know about models, but that construct's flourishing is literally straight out of 3K's dueling animations. Its a literal copy paste job with how balant it is.
>over 16 hours>shills still goingI liked the weird fags stalking the Slaanesh trap with a tramp stamp more than this
>>351635869might be the lighting but that still has more a worn down feeling to it than cathay stuff so far
>>351636960I agree, bring back the trap.
>>351635502changs are never buying games ever again
>>351636960WH news gets the refugees on /vst/ riled up so they start shitting up the generalsee, even shogunfag is back

>No no no the Celestial Dragon Emperor and Moon Empress are GODS, they are way too powerful to put in the game>But they still live in the capital?>Yeah! They just aren't as involved in rulership anymore>So what happens when someone conquers the capital?>uhhhhhh
I don't like Cathay.
>>351635052The poll made me realize how underwhelming all the designs are
>>351636250If you watch the trailer again, it's pretty clear the scene with the flying rocks is a great distance away from the actual bastion where the chaos hordes pour out.The scenery in the latter is much more desolate befitting the chaos wastes.The place we saw was most probably Wei-Jin, a city near the great bastion but isn't in the great bastion itself if you check the warhammer map.I mean it kinda makes sense doesn't it?Why would you make build your settlements and weapons manufacturing so close the frontlines where you could probably risk jeopardizing it if the enemy manages to break through? The city was probably closer to the cathayan heart land where supply routes would be uncontested.
>>351637121Nothing because, you speedwatcher, their palace floats above the city, so they wouldn't be affected
>>351637239To be fair, literally none of the basegame WH1 LLs were very interesting design-wise either
>>351635061The standing jezzails are Araby units
>>351636960I miss the Slaanesh fags, Troyfags and Grim&Grave posting.
>>351637267Where is their palace actually pointed out
>>351637121What happens to Finubar when Morathi conquers Lothern but Teclis is winning the Lustriabowl?
>>351637121That is funny; does CA even care about this kind of shit?
>>351637432he's probably just been dead the whole time
>>351637416visually no where but both the trailer and the CA blog mention it floats
>>351637432Morathi would have sex with Finubar unlike Alarielle
>>351637410There were like 3 separate G&G posts yesterday morning alone>>351637416The blog post loredumps>>351637432Finubar should unironically be playable
>>351637483So who's sending Teclis those intrigue at court dilemmas?
So Cathay doesn't look interesting to me at all. If CA fucks up Ogors and Chorfs then I guess I won't buy WH3 which is pretty crazy considering how much I've played the first two games.
>>351637243By that logic Altdorf, Karaz-a-Karaz, and Couronne would also have brilliantly clean depictions, and yet we have plenty of artwork that shows that is simply not the case. The planet is in the pre-toilet medieval era, cities shouldn't look like Mr. Clean's wet dream no matter how important they may be.
>>351626572>Nooo muh aesthetics, muh low mudshit fantasyWhat a brainlet take. Canonically Ulthuan is supposed to have places that look exactly like that. Just because CA was lazy with Saphery maps doesn't mean they should keep doing that with Cathay and Realm of Chaos.>The Kingdom of Saphery is an enchanted land, with skies that shine with all the colours of the rainbow, hills that move by night and warm rivers that glow with gentle light. Magic courses through the blood of Sapherian Elves, and all of the realm's princes are also mages of awesome power. They are reclusive and idiosyncratic, dwelling in exquisite mansions far from other outposts of civilisation. Each noble's home has its own character that reflects the interests and magical research of its patron. >The palace of Anurion the Green is surrounded by terraced gardens containing many strange and exotic plants, with some carnivorous, some sentient, some both. Much of his collection is not even of this world. By contrast, the mansion of Hothar the Fey drifts gently across the sky, never greeting the dawn twice in the same location.
>>351637552>has Ind sword>Ind sword so OP not even High Elf blacksmiths could unravel its true powerThey probably have Mahabhrata tier OP heroes that make DBZ look like a toddler's medium
>>351637590every other dick sucking noble in the court since elves have literally nothing better to do but annoy each other and the world at large
>>351637605WH3 is worth buying because of the big ME map alone where you can play whatever faction you want from any of the 3 games.
>>351637113>>based CA/GW so awesome please gib more news I want to coom inside dragon mommy
Let's boil it down. Is WHFB low or high fantasy?
>>351637756>WH3 is worth buying because of the big ME map aloneOnly if it features the full Lustria and Ulthuan territories unquished and uncut. If it cannot do that then Warhammer 2 ME will still be better.
>>351637605Feel the same, I want so bad to like what I'm seeing but I just don't. Chaos are reskins of each other and Cathay and Kislev's designs aren't inspiring (or even grounding) in the least. Hopefully whatever gameplay changes they make will be good but I'm beginning to doubt
>>351637267>>351637121GW and CA even copied the Jade Palace from Genshin Impact lmao.https://genshin-impact.fandom.com/wiki/Jade_Chamber
>>351637756That might be all that pushes me into it, but if none of the new factions look good, it'll be a tough sell. A fair amount may end up depending on how much shit the older factions get, like the fucking Empire for instance.
>>351637991Clearly low fantasy.
>>351638119If only they had also copied the waifus..
>>351637971>Creative Workshop>>351638119Jade Empire had a floating castle too, nothing special.

>>351637113>based CA/GW so awesome please gib more news I want to coom inside dragon mommy
>>351637971I can respect an honest coomer. I kneel.
>>351637991Low overall with rare exceptions of high here and there, mostly concerning the chaos wastes and gigantic world ending events where all the stops have to be pulled to survive.
>>351637991Low but has high
>>351637991Has its highs and lows
>>351638264You have to ask a question that Tzeentch cannot answer.
>>351637991High fantasy but not wide
>>351637991High Fantasy during all of the major moments, Low Fantasy elsewhere.
>>351638445>why do they call it oven when you of in the cold food of out hot eat the foodNow where is my disc you blue cunt
>>351637991Literally depends on which factions you're playing. WHF is meant to be a grab-bag of tropes so they can try to appeal to just about anyone.
>>351638119>Genshit invented generic asian fantasy and liberal usage of the word 'Jade'Damn are gachaniggers always this retarded?

>>351638027>cathay>not groundingAnon, they literally just made their infantry wear Jin dynasty lamellar armor. That's much more /his/ than Kislev will ever be who couldn't even be bothered to copy the druzhina aesthetics.
>>351638395>>351638306>low>low?????????????????????????????The game has dwarfs and elves. It's automatically disqualified. It can never be low fantasy. Low fantasy is akin to urban fantasy and extreme cases of sword and sorcery sub genres where magic of any kind is considered extremely rare and in most cases evil, and humans are by far the majority of the screen presence where any other race are also considered malevolent. If you got all your knowledge about Warhammer for TWWH alone, then it's THE most extreme case of high fantasy in the genre, much more so even compared to Dragon Age or Dungeons and Dragons or TES.
>>351639396>actually posting like thisholy go back
When's Araby & Ind?
>>351639518>British company >depicting Indian cultureI don’t bloody thing the Magna Carta allows it m8.
I don't like Cathay because I'm slightly racist.
Look dudes I just want Chinese vampires, I don't care about the dragons.
>>351639250>druzhina aestheticsThey didn't even manage to get streltsy right.
>>351639754The vampire sect will be DLC.
>>351639754God imagine if Neferata gets a reworked version of Rakarth‘s beast pens but for human followers she seduced. Raid a region in Cathay or beat a Cathayan army. Recruit charmed Cathayan simps to use as cannonfodder in your army. Then raise them as skeletons once they die for you.
>>351639748In my case I'm just autistic about hats. Miao Ying doesn't have a ridiculously big and opulent hat.
place your bets
>>351637991Depends on the writer
>>351639250Yes yes well done CA well done HOWEVER, I spot at least 8 different dye colours in their fabrics across what looks like 5 different units and heroes, a mixture of lamellar AND steel plate and just random articles of clothing and armour everywhere. The units look over-designed much like Kislev.
>no dragon emperorwhat the FUCK bros
>>351640234He’s too strong. It’d be like playing Khorne.
I'm a bit surprised at how comparatively few threads /twg/ has gone through considering a new faction reveal just dropped. I wonder if /twg/ is at all a microcosm for the level of hype that exists for WH3 in general.
>>351637991Low, because the focus AND peak of the setting is the Empire. Everything else is trash.
>>351640296AoS has playable gods.
>>351640303there isn't much hype because by now we know there's not going to be anything exciting to look forward to in terms of gameplay or campaign mechanics all we're really getting so far is faction reveals and those reveals are either for shit nobody cares about or show so little you might as well not waste the bandwidth watching the videoI'd expect a chorf or ogre trailer to get a lot more traction
>>351640296I can't wait to colonize his palace
I've been wondering but do we know if the cathay LL's actually have a transformation spell?Something about it makes me feel like the cathay LLs have 2 different models. If you have tried modding the game, you'd know that the game uses 1 model for the campaign map and 1 model for battles.It could be likely that miao ying and zhang ming only look human in the campaign map but become fully dragons in battle.
>>351640303The last time I was this unenthused about a new TW was with ToB. I don’t know but WH3 just seems so uninterested to me.
>>351640303What's there to be hype about? We saw that they didn't change the siege maps.
>>351640576I bet you Malus was a test for them
>>351640026>10 helfs in pic>Chadfred destroyed 3 of them and ruined the lives of another 2Such true power.
>>351640576Considering we actually see a transformation process I am guessing they can switch form.
>>351640576Come to think of it, it might be a long shot, but their flying transformation might be possible to recycle for vampire LLs to be used for bat forms.
>>351641045That's a long shot indeed. Remember when transformation of Kadon/Kadan (?) was cucked to summon, because CA thought it's better to have full caster over some dude that can turn himself into powerfull unit and boost his mele stats.
>>351640071That pic is rather unrealistic. I mean, pavement, really? In Bretonnia? Sorry, but that's a bit of a stretch.
>>351640917Whatever became of him after ET? Is he still around in AoS?
>>351641493He went from rebelling against Nagash to worshipping Nagash
>>351641493He is serving as Nagash footstool
>>351641493continued to be a cuck
>>351641493ET is not cannon. But yeah, Nagash is also keep him around. For some fucking weird reason. Dude who backstab almost everyone is still alive. Arkhan there too. I think?
>>351641571>>351641573>>351641645Fuck why does ET and AoS exist?
>>351640303Not a fan of daemonmanii.Only play Slavs in WW2 games.The only time I ever played China was in 3K.Really nothing exciting for me desu senpai. Honestly more interested in Troy right now or maybe one last FLC for WH2.
>>351641728Writers hated the setting they inhereted from better writers
>>351641728Minis weren’t selling.
>>351641738>last FLC for WH2 Aha-ha.
>>351641645>ET is not cannonTake you seething elsewhere. And take your poor spelling with you
>>351641728Fantasy wasn't selling. Zero interest in writing for the lore or army books from any writer. Lack of trademark potential.
>>351641867>Take you seething elsewhere.No. I will not do that. :^)
>>351641571He is not worshipping Nagash. He bidding his time until he can usurp Nagash. He recently betrayed Nagash's war efforts to do his own thing.
>>351641645>Nagash is also keep him around. For some fucking weird reason.Turns out Nagash is hugely tsundere for him. He doesn't want to admit it openly, but he appreciates Manfnred's spitefulness. Yes, even though it ended the world. Nagash can relate to that. And although Mannfred is only loyal to himself, he's also one of the most all-around capable individuals Nagash has ever employed. So he's got some job security thanks to that.
>>351641862Let me dream of Strigoi Empire FLC for Halloween.
>>351641963Then learn to spell.
>>351629730they weak in campaign, good enough in battles
>>351641974My mistake, I avoid AoShit like the plague it is
>>351624634What do they eat?
>>351641986>He doesn't want to admit it openly, but he appreciates Manfnred's spitefulness. Yes, even though it ended the world. Nagash can relate to that. And although Mannfred is only loyal to himself, he's also one of the most all-around capable individuals Nagash has ever employed.This is so utterly fucking contrary to Nagash wanting everybody either not existing or 300% under his control that its unreal. This nigger's whole and entire motivation is that he's a fucking control freak and fucking NEEDS to have literally EVERYTHING under his complete control at all times. Going "tee hee its cute how you defy me I love how I don't have control over you!" is NOT Nagash.
>>351642002>Strigoi >Necrach All I wanted is some Mousillon nigga to play with.
>>351641728>>351641907After the whole Video Game Ban for Minors Under 18 in China, GW realized they can make a whole lot of money there because millions of kids will be looking for a new hobby.
>cathay yin yang mechanic will force their units to be close to each other all the time or else they will suck/ have low moraleThey are going to be demolished so hard by artillery and wind spell spamming
>>351642287Fuck off back to your containment already
>>351642084Which sort of means they suck; at least in single player seeing as any faction can do well in battles vs the braindead ai. Campaign strength is what makes a faction either fun or a chore.
>>351642372>Snipes your spellcaster
>>351642271That's Nagash endgame. Meantime, he likes to torture people in twisted justice-type ways. Serving another is the worst punishment for Mannfred. Also Mannfred is hella useful. He is a wildcard that keeps Nagash's enemies on his toes and also keeps Nagash always aware and prepared. Also-also Mannfred is super competent and ruthless.
>>351642442Why don't AoShills stay in their own general?
>>351642271Mannfred and Neferata are supposed to check each other while Arkhan ensures some balance of power between them.
>>351642337Do the Chinks even play 40K?
>>351642510These Cathay Jezzels don't have Sniper Scopes, but the Skaven Jezzels do.
>>351624294unironically I hope soI know they'll do the absolute minimum but at least give them their different helmet designs
>>351642510I feel like Troy has foliage on the ground. Why does this game look worse than Troy?
>>351642673Skaven have bad eyes
Cathay and Kislev are age of shitmar garbage. The designs clash with the old factions because their design philosophy copies shitmar instead of old Warhammer
>>351642813Tiny famiry company
>Empire still doesn't have Hochland Longrifles>Empire still doesn't have repeater handguns>Dwarfs still don't have a non hero Grudge Raker unit
>>351642328I just want a vampire who isn’t von Carstein.
>>351642372>powerful ranged units>powerful frontline>poor speed, no cavalry hmmmm where have i heard this before
>>351642893I think Kislev fits in to some extent.But yeah, Cathay feels very out of place.
>>351642893Everyone who isn't an AoSfag or a shill noticed this already, I think
Why can't I get into total war properly, I think the battles look great and watching online battles on youtube looks so much fun. Then I go to play campaign and I'm bored to death/frustrated before I even get a chance to play with the big toys. The campaign just seems to be such a slog of turn based shit. Is my brain just fried from playing eu4 so much that I can't enjoy anything other than changing map colours? Any tips for getting into the game and actually enjoying it or should I just play online battles?
>>351642893I too have eyes and watched the trailers.
>>351642959Silly anon, Cathayans aren't resistant to magic. They also cavalry.
>>351642893This. Look at a faction like the wood elves, the designs are simple and don't rely on spikes, random effects or shit like that. Simple is best, this overdesigned garbage has no place in WHFB.
>>351642529>check Neferata outI’m so jelly of manlet now.
>>351642893they are designed by GW so that was inevitable
>>351643008Shill. I cancelled my preorder the moment I saw that ugly ass gorilla chink woman. I'm going to buy 3D prints of minis just to spite GW.
>>351642893they aren't age of shitmar, but you're right the designs arethey look like something blizzard designed without a care or thought given to lorethese past couple years have shown none of these shyster devs can be trusted
>>351642813>Troy>made by loving Bulgarian team that adds cute waifus and loves the Iliad>WH3>made by depressed Bongland team that hate their job and would rather be working on their hero based card game FPS
Reminder if you're a centrist (or worse) means you want to genocide blacks, jews and homosexuals. You don't belong here.
>>351642994Just play multiplayer
>>351643207>and would rather be working on their hero based card game FPSDo we know for SURE that its a hero shooter? How can we be certain its not Alien Isolation 2?
>>351643303I say they belong here more than (You)
>>351643320shut the fuck up nigger
>>351643343You're antisemitic and racist, chud. Warhammer is a feminist, leftist hobby.
>>351643173>Shill. I cancelled my preorder the moment I saw that ugly ass gorilla chink woman. I'm going to buy 3D prints of minis just to spite GW.prove it.
>>351643404>chudWhy yes, I am a chad stud
>>351643423I wish Karl Franz was real and executed the entire CA company for not paying taxes.
>>351643303>2021>political spectrumsUghhh..do boomers really do that? Jeez like uhh hello? This isn’t 2015 any more. Like go be an old man somewhere else.
>>351643423wtf is wrong with these retards today that they think having balance(in theory) is wrong? wtf wtf wtf
>>351643173If you're into Slaanesh someone on /wfg/ is intending on scanning the Diaz Daemonette bits and uploading the files to a mega
Everqueen Alarielle has been kidnapped by dark elf conspirators!Who do you think should team up with Tyrion and Teclis in this bro-op, and what should their forces be?
Do you think CA makes the women ugly on purpose or that's GW fault?
THERE WILL BE A RECKONING
>>351643642Mods can always fix it.
>>351643642The dragon lady is not ugly. She's prettier than shitonnian prophetesses who were designed before the CA bowing to SJWs.
>>351643173I cancelled when I saw the ice sleds that looked like happy meal toys from the 90s. At the rate CA's going with these designs I may not even pick it up on sale. Game is going to need a lot of mods to fix.Might be the first game I, uhh... borrow from my neighborly copier.
>>351643548I bet it's the trap with the tramp stamp throwing sugar daddy money around
>>351643642It’s a team effort.
>>351643807Okay you need to chill, take a cold shower or something
It's so sad seeing Warhammer becoming more pozzed than Pathfinder. And now they're raping the corpse of Warhammer Fantasy. Remember how excited everyone was whem they announced The Old World?
>>351643642wdym? ca and gw are ugly women themselves
>>351643784Did she kill Grace too?
>>351643892I miss the old times when GW was a bunch of anglos who sucked off German culture.
>>351643762I swear to Grimnir my first campaign on the combined WH3 map will be me gathering the lads , marching east and then showing the Cathay umgi why you don't steal from a dawi!FUCKING CATHAY SHITS
>>351643878When they first announced it I had hope. Now I just hope GW collapses.
>>351643878I'm never giving GW or CA money again personally.
>>351643984They were making fun of it. Franz's house used to be holswig-schliestein or some shit and he used to be a corrupt fuck with secret mutant relatives. The 8e/TWW variant of Empire is Nu-GW
>>351643423>>351643497>>351643545I've been around on 4chins for almost a decade and I think /twg/ might be the only place where I've seen anons go to bat for centrists. I don't know what to make of it.
>>351644182>nu pozzed GW is actually based and the old eternal Anglo GW is actually cringeMakes sense for there is nothing worse than the Anglo.
>>351644267It's more the implication of what Ben said, he basically admitted he's a far left parasite who can't keep his politics out of his job.
>>351642510Apparently, this was based on a real weapon. The jingal.https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wall_gun
>>351644371beat me to it
Here's the Top Comment for Cathay Reveal Trailer on Bilibili (Chinese Youtube):>To be honest, there was a big medicine early in the morning [Yawn Emote] I was shocked for a while.>Evaluation after watching the promo:>Write a story overnight +50>Impression of non-stereotype braids +50>Deliberately licking the Chinese market +10>Han, Tang, Song and Ming weapons, armor and architectural style +10>A historical origin that is longer than before the arrival of the Creator +10>Factions are comprehensive enough +10>Chinese Dragon+10>White hair, Furui, grasping the root treasure, the emperor, transforming into +1000>To sum it up: One hundred thousand elite emperors are all Aurora people at first sight
>>351643878Lol I don’t give a fuck nerd.
NO NO NO!!/v/ is taking the piss out of us again! >>>570924984
>>351644508No one was asking (You)
Sent me back in time to 1941 and by Grimnir I will make sure every single anglo rat is destroyed.
>>351644508Good for you, who asked?
Kek. Keep dreaming, drukeks.
>>351644182Wut? Franz has been presented as the hottest shit since Magnus the Pious for the better of two decades, probably more. It's been that way for the longest time of his existence as a character. Arguing otherwis is like saying the real Batman is a gun murderer who wears purple gloves.
>>351644390Why do they need a Elephant Gun for?
>>351644484>Deliberately licking the Chinese market +10Oh no no no they know.
>>351644484>chinks love the dragon mommyGW and CA played their cards well I see. Lmao at the westoids screaming muh wammenz.
>>351644484They actually liked Meow? Even with that nose?
>>351644484>licking the Chinese marketWhat>Furui, grasping the root treasurethe fuck>One hundred thousand elite emperors are all Aurora people at first sightare you saying?
>>351644659Kill Norscan mammoths.>>351642813>once again Warhammer despite being CA‘s flagship looks worse than any of their other gamesWhy are they so fucking lazy bros?
>>351638445why doesn't my dad love me?
>>351644847BECAUSE YOU'RE A... you're a......Fuck it, here's your disk.
>>351644710>mommyI just don't feel that energy from her.
>>351644954Me either, seems like a forced meme
If WH3 is Mists of Pandaria, does that mean CataKINO is next?
>>351645126Considering that'll be Chorfs, absolutely yes.
>>351644659Irl, it was good for shock and awe and stopping infantry charges.In the context of warhammer, I guess the larger caliber helps when being charged by a chaos abomination that shrugs off most weapons.>>351644791She only looks bad in that one unflattering shot. She looks fine here, aka the scene most people watching the trailer remember>>351643949
>>351626806I thought of unbirth
>>351645230She has a more masculine jawline and nose than me, I may not be particularly masculine but I'm still a guy.
>>351644795Translation: CA just won back the Chinese Market they lost from the 3K cancellation. The Cathay reveal trailer in less than 24 hours, has gotten more views than the Fates Divided trailer.
>>351645334Are you the trap with the tramp stamp?
>>351645385Stop being creepy
>>351645361Gib more translated comments or else.
A female LL that can transform into a cool bigass dragon god are 2 things I love put into 1 package.Do we know if she will just get bound spells or will she get her own lore of magic?
>>351645621Here's the link to CA's Bilibili video:https://www.bilibili.com/video/BV1LP4y1Y7sM?spm_id_from=333.999.0.0You can plug it into google translate yourself.
>>351645854They announced each is a spellcaster like Malekith, so they'll have some lore to work with at least.
>>351645872Hell no, that's too many scripts to unblock. I'll just imagine what they're saying instead.
>>351644954She gives Sindel vibes, maybe a bit younger though.
>>351645872Damn, some of the changs in the comment literally say that they forgive CA for 3K now.Uhhh...........Anti chink bros...........
I wonder if the delay was CA having to remove all effeminate men from the game for China?
Which character has the dumbest hat?
>>351645872Huh, the Chinese characters Nan-Gao means "South Highland" or "Southern Highland"
>>351635137Copium off the chart potato grog. So far literally every trailer has tons of views and likes. Your fucking done son. Prophet of Cathay coming in to dab on your dumbass
>>351646275Meow Ying is the matriarch of nan gao. Are they saying the location is wrong?
>>351646484Your containment would probably be less dead if you stayed there, aosfag
damn I just really want a tzeentch reveal trailer now.
>>351644954just a lot of ineffectual, angry screeching about titles, as if they matter when chaos is at your doorstep lola woman wrote that trailer for sure
>>351646874I'm sure Chaos' manager will listen to her seriously thanks to those titles.
>>351646071Yeah, playing a Total War game where its Chinamen killing other Chinamen for +250 hours kind of loses its luster. In Warhammer 3, you now have Fantasy Medieval Chinamen led by a literal Dragon versus:>Fantasy Holy Roman Empire>Dwarfs>Orcs and Goblins>Vampire Necromancers>French Arthurian Knights (for Fate fans)>Beastmen>Tree Hugging Hippies>Scandinavia Daemon Worshipers >High Elves>Dark Elves>Lizardmen>Error 404>The Mummy>Undead Pirates of the Caribbean>Fantasy Russia>And 4 factions of Demons from Hell
>>351646620.MAAAAAAAAAAYTREEEAAAAAAARK OF nan GOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWW
>>351644954It's just people throwing a term like how thicc was used to describe noodly bitches for some reason.
>>351646874That's just typical asian monologues. No different from japanese samurai declaring their name, clan, rank, and school of swordsmanship before going into a duel.It presents how very different the orient is versus the west that doesn't care much about formalities, except maybe old fashioned Bretonnia.
>that's okay, we don't need unique models for Marked Warriors. It's all about the daemons anyway.WHEN WHY NOT JUST MAKE DOC ARMYfucking shill faggots
>>351645361>>351645621>>351646071>I can finally accept the Three Kingdoms unfinished with peace of mind
yeah grinch is cool and all, whatever. where's nurgle?
>>351647342I've honestly just pretended it doesn't exist outside of the soundtrack and that Cathay is going to be the real deal that CA will focus on their chink shilling instead. Imagine the future content it will get that was never realized in 3K.
>From the stars came the will to shape fate, hurling this world to ruin.I just don't think this is referring to the Old Ones at all, it's referring to Tzeentch. Consider the context of the scene, not just the wording.>From the starsShe says, as she looks upon the night sky, being torn open by a Tzeentchian portal as his forces prepare to invade reality.>Came the will to shape fate,The Daemon most interest in fate, in shaping and changing the course of reality is Tzeentch.>Hurling this world to ruin.Obviously, Tzeentch is one of the four great ruinous powers. It is natural that the change he seeks to unleash upon Cathay, in its present order under the Dragon Emperor, would be to drive it to its destruction.The most generous interpretation one can consider in that her comments relate to the Old Ones is that "The Old Ones originally came from the stars to change the planet and then Chaos came after them", but this is not the case in this scene.The Old Ones are purely peripheral in this context. It makes no sense that she would look upon her frontier being imminently assaulted by the Daemons of Tzeentch and make a comment, the first speech in the cinematic which dictates the tone from this point forward, about the Old Ones of all things.
>>351647196Not to mention, it's been 4 years since WH2 came out. CA has zero excuse for not giving the recycled WoC units unique models when they've had more than twice the time to develop WH3 than they did with WH2. They could have put just one of those 800 employees they like to boast about on the task for those 4 years and he could have done it all 4 times over.
'I have long felt that Sigma is a barbarian. I have long felt that the Lake God Fairy is an elf. I have long felt that the ancient sage died 800 years ago. I have long felt that the elf gods are cerebral palsy. ! The four gods have long felt that I am a young man, and the dragon emperor is the real god!'kek
>>351624105I am doing a shogun 2 campaign and i would like someone to help me understand the cavalry because i rarely used anything except yari cavLight cav are used to chase fleeing archers and are also good early game in general. yari are run of the mill shock cavalry? How do i use the katana and bow cavalry? Are they worth anything ? What about the elite ones You get from technology? Im playing takeda so Id really Like to make cavalry themed armies. Also is it worth building the generals as fighters and using them a lot in combat? The other tree seems far better for the army bonuses
>>351647595>I just don't think this is referring to the Old Ones at allShe is referring to them. Keep in mind that dragons were around before the arrival of the Old Ones.
>>351647564A lot of the comments seem to agree that transferring the 3K team to work on Cathay while leaving 3K unfinished was totally worth it. They're also very happy that Cathay was not based off of the Qing Dynasty.
>>351647828>hurling this world to ruin.
Only antisemitic, transphobic racists hate modern warhammer.
>>351635052You fucking shill are not tire yet of shilling?
>>351647359since AOS/VT the only chaos god GW has put any work in and promoting is Nurgle, so im quite happy the other gods get some screentime.
>>351647928I value their opinions more than (You)rs already then
>>351647927Yes. They came on the planet, reshaped it to their liking and accidentally brought Chaos with them.
>>351629293>>counts alone are responsible for the degrading summonsDegrading summons were literally instituted because of manticore and Cygor summons.
How is Khorne a chaos god? He's nicer than Khaine and other elf gods.
>>351647928Thank you, yes I am quite based
>>351624294To be fair, there were those god awful elven shield models they showed off in the TWW 2 demos.It’s unclear if they were always placeholders or they changed them because everyone complained, but they did change them eventually.
>>351647828No, it does not make sense.That dragons were around before the Old Ones is immaterial in the context. She ia referring to the forces of Tzeentch. You are overthinking it.
>>351647927did the old ones not make the polar gates that would later fuck up and become portals to chaos
Could be worse, at least the women don't have that disgusting GW tranny half shaved head hairstyle.
>>351637113>I want to coom inside dragon mommyYes
>>351648068>How is Khorne a chaos god?Well he was born in the warp, are made of chaos stuff and emotions, he is a god and is pretty chaotic in nature.>He's nicer than Khaine and other elf gods.I mean he wont rape you/become a bloating mess of larva/mindfuck you but "nice" is overstretching it.
>>351648168You are fucking retarded.
>>351648209Those events did happen, but they are far too broad within the context of the scenario. Simple logic dictates that she is speaking of Tzeentch, who in that very moment, moves to strike against her.
I bet dragon mommy has a nice bush.
>>351624294>mein fuhrer>none of the models were updated, all the chaos warriors have is colour change>they spent all the time and money to make it run without constantly crashing>nothing has been done to the sieges either and they're still boring trash with 180 degrees maps and you can't put gun emplacements on the walls
>>351648365No, you are just wrong and refuse to abandon your overanalysed headcanon.
>>351638168>rigid capes>tzcheen warriors with skulls as disk riders
>>351648424That hairy pussy canonically belongs to Grimgor's big mushroom (this is the only 100% canon part of ET)
>>351648478>overanalysedWhat? She literally described the Old Ones.
>>351645872>CA: Sit on this white marble toilet, Dragon Emperor. You will gain the power of God, which is longer and stronger than the ancient sage. >Long Di: So, CA, what is the price? >CA: Unable to become a legendary lord for players to choose.This chinamen.
>>351629087>>351626572ElvesDwarfsLizardmenall use magic (counting rune magic of course) extremely casually for just about anything.
>>351644954She’s Imrik‘s bed warmer.
>>351626572>instead of just being something in the background like literally every other race in the settingyou mean races like high elves with magical stones and a huge magical vortex in the middle of their island? or tomb kangz / vamp cunts, who are literally kept alive by magic?
>>351648605No she just mentioned the stars
>>351643878>tfw all my favorite things have already long gone to shit so things like that don’t even phase me any moreHonestly it feels good man.
>>351648424I want to see her rimming hairy ogre assholes
>>351648613GW's making him Emperor of Mankind (Fantasy), aren't they?
Oh shit, I forgot about loremaster of sotek. Time to see how big head reacted to it. His sycophancy is always fun to watch.
>>351648750Liar, I know it hurts deep inside.
>>351648712Okay, you are clearly trolling. Here, have a final (You)
>>351648486>they couldn't even be assed to slap a symbol of tzeentch on them
>>351648605No, she literally described Tzeentch.>From the starsLooking upon Tzeentchian forces assembling in the night sky before her very eyes.>Came the will to shape fateTzeentch is THE Chaos God of fate and change, shaping reality to his will>Hurling this world to ruinA ruinous power. The ruinous power of Tzeentch. He who would directly bring ruin to the world, not simply arrive and through a long sequence of unforeseen events unintentionally contribute to its ruin.I don't how anyone can look at this scene, as Miao Ying looks upon the Daemons of Tzeentch, as they manifest before her, and in that moment, reflecting to herself, make a comment that refers to the arrival of Tzeentch and his nightmares upon her doorstep, and think to themselves "Ah yes, she obviously speaks of Chotec and Tepok". What leap of thinking is that? A refusal to see the obvious facts that a trailer that is 50% Tzeentch would begin with his opposing force introducing him?
>>351648957You're just angry because the team working on this game is mostly women.
>>351649034That would explain the delay after 4 years, actually.
I hope GW crashes and burns
>>351649034Ah so that's why they've been completely incompetent.
>>351649147can't happen soon enough
>>351649149I'm going to 3D print TOW minis and give them away to as many people as I can. I know most guys at my local hobby store stopped buying GW trash and make kitbash or use 3D prints.
>>351649149>came will come outYe bb u know it
>>351649251>>351649293it was a terrible post and i had to delete it out of shamesry
>>351649149>you'll buy itAt this point I don't even think I want to pirate it.
>>351648882Literally every setting or franchise I liked since childhood has gone to shit by now. Not even black Numenoreans and gay Hobbits in the Amazon LotR show will phase me.
>>351645872You know, it's kind of odd that there aren't any comments complaining about women being put into frontline combat roles like Handgunners or Air Balloon crew members.
>>351648882It can't hurt if I'm dead inside from it happening constantly.
>>351649346Not gonna stop the came cumming out.
>>351649403CCP propaganda from the late 40's to now has always heavily featured women and men working/fighting side by side.
>>351643878>Remember how excited everyone was whem they announced The Old World?LMAO
>>351649403They don't care about SJW shit. They just care about representation and waifus to coom to.
>>351649403Chinks are coomers. They love their battle waifus.
>>351640026>10 stacks>Not one of them actually full>still in debt anywayfor what shitposting purpose?
>>351643878>>351644074>>351644158>>351648750>REEE NO GIRLS IN MY GAMES
>>351642084Counts are fun in campaign.The vampirates out shine them a little bit in few ways.But counts get placed in a more fun part of the map imo.
>>351649403Most people don’t give a fuck about warrior chicks or even find it hot. The only reason complain about this over here is because they’re contrarians who want to stick to them pozzed game journos and feminists.
>>351640417AoS is for queers and children.
>>351649639Congratulations on missing the point so hard you killed whatever argument you were trying to make better than I could, bravo.
Hilarious watching fantatroons get BTFOKislev and Cathay are the futureYour gay shit tabletrash is in the dustbin of history
>>351649727You never had a point to begin with, you were just ree'ing impotently.
>>351649708That's an insult to queers and children
>>351649639I meant the things I liked literally went to shit as in shit in every possible way like modern Command & Conquer, HoMM or Warcraft.
It's been how fucking long and the shills are still going? Do they get payed by the post instead of the reply these days?
>>351649759So you're saying fantachads were histchads all along? I understand, now fuck off back to your containment aostranny
>>351637991Its always been high and only retards disagree because their headcanon says otherwise and they are unable to disagree with themselves.
>>351649759I actually enjoy meltdowns like this.
>>351649854>anything not western>PANDERINGPANDERINGPANDERING>anything female>GLOBOSHLOMOGLOBOSHLOMO>anything nu-lore>TRASHTRASHTRASHTRASHTRASH>anyone liking the game>SHILLSHILLSHILLSHILLSHILLshut the fuck up already.
>>351649854>how fucking longJust over 19 hours at this point, I think the actual shills stopped and it's just shitposters and aosfags being obnoxious at this point.
>>351649854There are no shills, this is the Warhammer Fantasy audience now.It wants AOS aesthetics without the WHFB name.It wants Kislev to be 90% bears and 10% ice.It wants Cathay to be led by a being that now outshines Sigmar and Asuryan.It wants the nuGW experience and it wants it made by nuCA.You best start believing in Not!Age Of Sigmar threads.You're in one.
>>351650007>shitposters and aosfagsTautology
>>351649513>>351649663This a weird "Win Win" situation. People here in the west like it because it's more female empowerment. The Chinese like it because men and women fighting alongside together is CCP approved propaganda and a lot of the players actually find it hot.
>>351649987>>351650004>>351650034Here's your precious (You) now fuck off>>351650056Fair point
>>351650004>>351650034Would you fags fuck off already?
>>351650007I want to go back to comfy drought /twg/.>>351650089>People here in the west like it because it's more female empowerment.I’m in the west and I like cause I find it hot.
>>351650180>comfy drought /twg/I just realised the ratfags have been quiet, they're behind most of the shitposting, aren't they?
>>351643878>Remember how excited everyone was whem they announced The Old World?no, anyone whose anyone saw that it was a money making scheme to capitalize on hte popularity of total war and vermintide, and itll probably sell poorly or not make projected profits and be discontinued in a year or two and theyll sweep it under the rug and forget about it, like theyve done with their other specialist games
>>351650218It's always ratfags, so yes
>>351650246I knew it
>>351650104>>351650161You're the ones who don't belong here anymore.Soon (2023) WH3 will launch and a new wave of new posters will come.They will play Kislev and they will play Cathay.You will be a stranger here.Then you will have to click the last link you'll ever click in /twg/.>>>/vst/
>>351650218We got schemed on bros
What would cousin Okri do in this situation?
>>351650339Fuck off, ratfag
>>351650218that, or /v/ermin
>>351650339Kill yourself, ratfag
>>351650339>/vst/But what if I don’t care about discussing how Koreans caused the death of RTS for the hundredth time?
>>351650180>>351650089I hate feminism but I find it hot and at the same time fuels my ryona fetish when the females lose to big ugly monsters.
>Cathay santizied as fuck>Female lord introduced but not the dragon emperorWhy can't devs just make games for the sane conservatives who will actually play them over shitty libs
>>351650607you will not be missed
>>351650607>santiziedU fucking wot m8?
>>351650670His money will be
>>351650670Neither will Total Cuck.>>351650690>They wuz good changs fighting them ebil chaos, dindu nuffin
>people complaining about muh cathay but say nothing about Chaos Warriors being lazy recolors after 5 years
>>351626872Cathay literally was Empire but better even according to the two pages of old lore they've had, lorelet. Imperial artillery literally is mostly Cathayan designs and it was long implied that the only reason why western civilisations still exist is because Cathay holds the wast bulk of Chaos worshipping hordeniggers at Great Bastion.
>>351650718Let’s not fool ourselves here. He‘ll buy WH3 anyway. GW/CA know their fans are like abused housewives.
So many far center radicals in this thread.
>>351650745It's been brought up, shitposters are just more focused on defending Cathay
>>351650753And that is enough reason to give them a basically flawless line-up, excluding cav?Not sure about that
>>351650745>nobody cares about chaosAlso water is wet and the sky is blue.>>351650753Dragon-sama. I kneel.
>>351650218rats are slowly becoming irrelevant and the general is too used to them. The new way to troll anons is with Chinese people.
>>351650745>Laziness isn't due to being sjw fucks unlike making out Cathay to be the bestest most progressive boys who did nothing wrong
>>351650775Anyone who actually buys WH3 at this point deserves no sympathy, at best I'll pirate it, if that.
>>351650745>>people complaining about muh cathay but say nothing about Chaos Warriors being lazy recolors after 5 yearsBecause Chaosmanii(colour) has been prophesied before TW:W 3 was even announced.
>>351650906I miss rats and multiplayer shitposting. Chinkposting just feels like butthurt over modern geopolitics slipping into /twg/.
>>351650864>basically flawless line-upAre angry manlets flawless then too?
>>351628609Likely Miao and her brothers have a copypaste mechanic from Hector/Paris in Troy: althought they are "allied", they are in a race to become their father's favorite kid, and both have a meter to fill with various tasks, with some options to sabotate their's brother's one. The first faction to fill it's meter gets to confederate both his brother's and father's ones
>>351650906I assure you I still hate rats as much as I hate chinks.
>>351650607What the hell does being a conservative have anything to do with those points.
>>351651167Having the money to buy games
>all the shills trying to rationalize this dogshit Cathay just like they did the dogshit Kislev
>>351651013You said that in TW2, anon.
>>351651071Manlets don't have any cav, are slower than a limping goblin and can't cast magic.Cathay has cav, is at worst a bit slower than most humans and magic to rival elves.
>>351650864They are Dawi but worse, how are they flawless
>>351651250No I didn't, don't put words in my mouth you subhuman shitposting parasite.
>>351651167You already know globalhomo. Conservative gaming will rise again.
>>351651071Obviously. And Dark Elfs, High Elves, Greenskins…
>>351651307So meaning you actually bought TW2 like a shill?
>>351651372Nice to see you're flip flopping on your own arguments you obnoxious cunt, now fuck off to whatever hole you crawled out of.
>>351629225not an argument. The architecture could still be built in real life
>>351651412>whatever hole you crawled out ofI'm taking the safe bet on /v/
>>351651459The only safer bet would be plebbit
Y‘all just lucky I don’t have access to my image folder right or this general would still be full of Troyposting.
>>351651459>>351651501I'm going to get in on this and say pisscord
>>351651548I'd take Troyposting over the shills any day.
/big/gers GO AWAY, STOP!
have the doomposters fucked off yet
>>351651642just imagine the cinematic finishers
>>351648957problem is there newer was "newer " Tzcheen warriors model. Khorne had always have berserk, Nurgle same case (even ignoring Blightkings, Orghotts Daemonspew armor could be used as a reference for regular Nurgle WoCh) for Slaanes they will reused mirror guard. But Tzeentch nevered had generic Tzeentch warior armorm so ofcourse GW will be lazzy and not even try to make some new. Pick related is what I would call perfect Tzeentch woch abd it is kitbash of aos Cypher Lords helmets and Kairic Acolytes
>>351651642I like Guan Yu and Lu Bu's moveset and you can't stop me.
>>351651678Never, fuck off shill
>>351651678Fuck off, ratfag
>>351651678Only when you kys shill. Imagine defending reused assets: the faction with a paintjob of chink pandering by fucking the lore to make Cathay look spotless lmao
>>351647097okay, but that would be a duel between two samuraiwoc just wants to eradicate them
Centrism is a terrorist ideology.
>>351651716Age of Reckoning had enough models to make 4 units of Tzcheen warriors
>>351651864Refuse to do nothing.
>>351651273Manlet runes are just magic without the downsides at this point, and they're built for easymode ranged gameplay. Slayers are better at defending boxes than cavalry because they're harder to shoot off the board due to being unbreakable.
>afternoon peking time>angry chinkoid noise starts to increase
>>351651716Its not like CA didn't have any reference for a generic Tzeentch chaos warrior
>>351651591Don’t worry senpai. We will return.>>351651616Based. Post Athena as well.
>>351651642I bet they are not porting the hero duels, neither the optimization advances or even the fucking diplomacy
>>351651864Bros...what if ultra-centrists take over and genocide all the /pol/acks and redditors?
>>351652028centrists wouldn't do a thing because they'll forever debate over the merit of killing vs sparing
>>351651963>tfw no nudes of them for judgment of parisreee
>>351652028Centrists aim to genocide all gays, blacks and jews and anyone else who oppose their radical neutrality. Ben warned us in discord.
>tzeentch reveal in a few weekschrist
>>351651962I don't think they any rights for anything made in Age of Reckoning. GW gave mythic the IP but everything Mythic made is theirs.
>>351651963I didn't enjoy Troy all that much but the posting about it was still better than the current chink shitposting. Even the shitposting about Troy was better quality.
>>351652172Wtf I love centrists now?
>>351651916Somewhat agree but they are still slow as fuck.Cathay has most of their strength but none of their weakness.
I HATE WOMEN I HATE WOMEN I HATE WOMEN REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE FUCK OFF FROM MY VIDEO GAMES YOU WORTHLESS WHORES
Grace died for our sins and we got someone even worse.
>>351651642Yeah all the animations and human models looked straight out of 3K. Not gonna lie though, the idea of playing a 3K army against fantasy races is kind of cool. Always loved the ancient chinese aesthetic.
>>351652219I'm not saying copy the designs, but just take general inspirations and use them as a basic point of reference when deisgned your own Tzeentch chaos warriors.
>>351652129It’s sad indeed. But at least there’s Geabull‘s nudes of Aphrodite and Hera.
>>351651318>conservative gamingWhat the is conservative gaming? Those weird religious indie games where you're some shepherd in Judea?
>>351652217>few weekstry months, they are going to drip every piece of cathay, remember they have to keep showing info from here to summer 2022
chosen blue (magic resist)chosen red (frenzy)chosen green (regen)chosen purple (perfect vigour)heres your team rainbow bro
>>351652546>>351652524Centrists are a threat to our democracy
>>351652476I am on my medication. Tenfold even!
>>351652217If 5 weeks is few, then sure.
>>351651962that is definetly true but I my rule of thumb is that CA is only allowed to use GW made/aprove design. And yes, pick related is a newer Tzeentch warrior they could use. Lets face the truth, CA was lazzy as fuck when making Tzeentch warriors and will use "no model" as an excuse. Which pick related disaproves.
>Not even 24 hours since the reveal and /twg/ is shitting itself trying to copeAnd there's still months of news to come about Cathay
OOOOOOOOoooooooooooOOOOOOOOOO I'M GONNA COOOM!!! ASIAN PUCCI TIGHT AS FFUUUUUCCCCKKK!!
>>351653023Imagine how hairy they are down there.
>>351653023They would never allow this in game and that is a tragedy.
>>351653023I want fantasy shitting streets
>>351653023I'd be less annoyed if they had good designs like this.>>351653149or this
>>351653090This but unironically.
>>351653023Definitely not Grace approved therefore extremely based.
>>351652524Gaming before "people" like you ruined it.
>They oppose me>They think their Pozzed World can save them
>>351653243you "people" need to go back to your containment board
>>351653090Nobody wants to fuck a chink Chang, only based nips.>>351653274But "she" is the poz
>>351653331then why don't you go back to /leftypol/, since that is where your kind gathers
>>351653274Holy FUCK what if the other LL is voiced by Dong Zhuo?
>>351652803wtf this is racist how was this allowed why weren't the devs harassed on twitter for that?
I remember back during the old times where you needed to post proof of your grandpa fighting in the SS or the Wehrmacht to be allowed to post here.
>>351653509Im so done with this place
>>351653509these were great times. We used to have daily "execution" shows where we would watch jews being put into freezers, frozen until they were standstill and then dropped from a high cliff to see them splinter in a thousand pieces, just like during the Holocaust (which definitely happened)
>>351653509You just reminded me why my grandfather is the biggest influence in my life, a real hero, veteran of both world wars and even managed to kill Hitler in the 2nd.
>>351638264Beat up a screamer and craft a disk with it.
>>351653643>even managed to kill Hitler in the 2ndHold up
is he supposed to be secret friends with Tzeentch or something?
>>351653415>Dong ZhuoWhat's that?
Do you ever get the portraits for the mythic hero and legend available?
>>351653706>Desert ClansARABYBROS ARABYBROS WE FUCKING MADE IT
>>351653706Think he might have access to Dogs of War mercs?
>>351653643What a bunch of lies you faggotWe all know Hitler fled to Argentina.
>>351653880Bro shut up, what if the Mossad reads your post?
>>351651864centrism is just neoliberalism as adopted by pussies
>>351653706He looks so fucking bad. You can tell it's a old world design.

Who thought poisoning your product with leftist trash and alienating your loyal consumers and fans was a good idea? Who is in charge of GW?
>>351654118KGB assets that want to destroy the West, just like every company nowadays
>>351654118What leftism are you talking about?
>>351653959They can't because they are tonguing my anus atm
>>351654118Are the leftists in the room with us right now?
>>351654229Oh thank fuck
>>351654040Yeah him and the other chick look like shit in their promotional shots.The in game footage of the dragon chick looks a lot better imo.
>>351654040So its a good thing?
>>351654257Yeah, (You) won't fuck off
>>351650753>Imperial artillery literally is mostly Cathayan designsits literally only hellstorms, cannons are from dwarfs, hellblasters are one of the experimental weapons from the engineers college

>>351654374I seeAnd have you been taking your medication?
>Conquer the world solo or with friendsMaybe I'm reading too far into this, but "friends" implies more than one which would suggest coop campaigns got upgraded.
>>351654482>>351654517Yeah yeah, now fuck off and kill yourself you annoying parasites. I'm gayer for dick than you and I still find you faggots annoying.
BUCK STATUS: BROKEN
Some more Be'lakor teasing.
>>351654701Did he lynch a black kid on stream again?What did he do.
>>351654581Ah, so you are one of the "leftists" in the room.
>>351654797Just like everything in your life, wrong again retard.
>>351654720If Be'lakor is the 7th LL (1 for each monogod, 2 for Kislev and Cathay each), how is he going to work exactly? A special faction that gets access to all the monogod roster, a LL that can be chosen by any of the monogod factions, or is he going to be a standalone WoC for 3?
>>351654720This paragraph isn't new you fucking mong.
>>351654767He got the vaxx and was really ill, he blamed hayfever but chat wasn't having it
>>351653494Because they were evil-white-men-only studios.
>>351654904Fuck my math, meant 9th
>>351655004No, you were right.Cathay doesn't count.
>>351652681to be fair, pic is a named Chaos lord called Vilitch the Curseling
>>351653125So hairy it's like natural panties.
>>351654951>got the vaxx and was really ill>blamed hayfeverConsidering how much he likes cheese you'd think he'd be proficient enough in maths to add 2 and 2
why is the lord a woman

>>351655149Chinese "martial artists" are pathetic dicklet manlets who would get destroyed by your average street fighter.

>>351655326Your average black man has a big throbbing 9 inch cock. Tell me how jackie chan is going to compete with his small pecker.
>>351655442Art imitating life
>>351653706Likely he's turning insane by Warpstone, and it's the GW adaptation of an actuall real phenomenon in history.Chinese emperors historically were plagued by mentall illness caused by their bad habit of drinking mercury, considered by traditional chinese medicine as a solution to aging
>>351653706>keeps the desert clans in orderBased Cathay.In the cotton fields you go.
>>351655225The two other dragons will likely be FLC content. Then Monke and some Jade Vampire as proper DLC lords. This way they fill the standard six LL's rosters
>>351655442That's what Chaos Dwarffags want.
>>351653706>presence of sorcerous cabals Zhao Ming's realmCA couldn't even bother to proofread their promotional pics.
>>351653706That design really sucks ass
Just post the fucking link to the site:https://warhammer3.totalwar.com/gameAdd it to next OP
>>351653706>armor rigged to cloth modelexcellent work ca, bravo, going back in time
>>351655835Fuck that site is ugly
>>351653023you'd expect Daji to be prime Warhammer's fantasy material but noooo. Gotta be muh harmony and muh sanitized faction of PURE GOOD
>>351655906If you can't connect the dots, this guy is clearly based on Qin Shi Huang Di, the first chinese emperor and was infamous for dabbling in alchemy and consuming mercury, thinking it would make him immortal.
>>351654767nothing happened hes just clearly burned out and over getting the same stupid questions and suggestions every 10 minutes
>>351655225They'll need to use the monke. Don't forget Lizards had like 8 lords.
>>351634204It kinda makes sense considering that dragons are pre-old ones entities that lived in the world before arrival of the old ones and creation of humanoid races.
>>351638119It's based on Jade Emperor's Heavenly Palace from Chinese mythology.
>>351645872I wonder how it feels to be so obviously pandered to. As a scandi I have never felt that "viking" factions try to pander to us. Only to the viking larpers from america
Can we at least concentrate on the facts that the female LL isn't ugly, fat, weird looking, mutant, elf etc. I mean this could have gone so much worse.
>>351657281Chinese love it the same way the modern manwomanfaggot loves getting told they're heckin' valid and whatever cringe ass fart-sniffing mottos they spew now.
>>351660607This.We're a far cry from the fucking Brettonian Damsels.
>>351637991WHFB is high fantasy.However, it's a big enough world that it's possible to tell a story contained in one area that is relatively low fantasy.Age of Sigmar is "even higher" fantasy.
>>351652219Mythic doesn't exist anymore. GW have already used the music from Age of Reckoning in their YouTube videos. GW did not give the IP to Mythic, they just licensed it out (gave Mythic permission to use it under contract). Everything Mythic created is property of GW.
