AoE3 Indians have elephants for days: rifle elephants, lancer elephants, flail elephants and cannon elephants.
Are Berbers the best camelfucker civ?
but what about elephant villagers?

>FU camels with 15% discount in castle, 20% in imperial
yes, though if you want the strongest camel unit, that's the indian imperial j/k it's the saracen FU heavy camel with Zealotry, I shit you not, they're better than the imperial camels

Oda struggle for the first few turns, but are super easy after that. You can just spam Yari Ashigaru, and later Long Yari, and win.

I wish CA hadn’t abandoned support for the records mode in 3K. It seemed like such a great solution.

In an ideal world there would have been topless Germanic babes hurling flaming pig heads. While riding trebuchet chariots.

Because unlike Soviets and Ostheer, their infantry has access to semi-auto rifles and BAR "assault rifles" (their profile is closer to StG-44 or FG-42 than LMG), so that leaves only flamers, SMGs and M1919 for doctrinal infantry.
i have like 200 games on USF in 2v2 and i still don't have an answer to OKW parking their sturmpios and volks in cover so that i can neither rush them or fight them at range. i'd be inclined to believe i'm retarded but then i play OKW at 3 ranks higher than my USF and i do the same to a rare USF opponent and they don't know how to deal with it

"lol just don't fight them" is applicable against MGs in houses and other shit like that, but not being able to fight basic, mobile units like sturmpios and volks is kind of a massive fucking handicap
cuck mindset, play better

I don't get the combat behind total war games? like it's if you took autistic RTS combat and cranked it to the maximum, like I tried TWW2 once and the combat was absolutely repulsive to me.

The mod is called KaiserreduX, or KX for short; Basically a right wing submod for KR that actually coded, and eventually they just forked the mod into their own idea of what KR should be.

Nice! Hated how the original KR made anti-Catholic persecution a staple of American NP
Probably because the traditional American nation is Protestant you dirty papist.

Does anyone know how Milennial Dusk is doing? I want to larp as the skull mask boys.

It's a game about Autism, reconquering a planet after the fall of civilization and retarded cabinet members who will never be happy.
Logistics is hard, and 20m squidbeasts will rape you. I'm still not sure why anyone would colonize these shitholes in the first place.

Of course I say that, just as I generate a planet with 22% ocean coverage.
So let me rephrase: what's the maximum ocean coverage that you can generate on a planet?
More than 15% is very rare so I doubt you can get more than 25
Around 20% yeah. Once the Navy DLC comes out, Vic said he'll add ocean-like planets.
Last I heard it was a free update, it hasn't been switched to paid DLC has it?
The aircraft update is referred to as DLC. As to whether it's paid or not who knows.

This is actually one of the best total war games in recent years. It's like three kingdoms but with a good and varied unit roster.
My only complaints is the lack of artillery compared to older titles and some unpatched exploits regarding diplomacy. Easily an 8.5/10

Why did /v/ tell me it was bad?

How about I rape your ass on the back of your fat mother's cold corpse.
A Kensai couldn't kill any melee Samurai unit solo, let alone 'whole armies'. They went down without support inside of 2 minutes against a single Nodachi Samurai unit. It's not the goalpost being moved; you're just a retard.
Because on harder difficulties, some ranged infantry can beat melee infantry, in melee. Tactics, actual tactics like would be used in battles, don't mean anything. CA have forgotten how to make a Total War game.

I already made a model for Blue Star, though it's not rigged to the same kind of skeleton. It would be funny as a goalkeeper maybe, but personally I think it might be better just doing one of the Sephirah.
Something like Gebura or Binah, or Chesed always holding a cup of coffee or something. Then we would get the reference/representation and other people would go haha coffeeman.
Either way if you want the model I could find a way to send it to someone who knows what they're doing.
include empire at war 100%

Unironically autism.
Because if you pretend to be retarded for long enough, actual retards will show up and think they're in good company.

I finally got this rickety ass autism simulator to stop fucking crashing at last and played a couple of campaigns, shits fun.

Is battle for the baltic a good "vanilla+" submod for SS6.4? I don't like what Titanium and SSHIP do to the game but am interested in the small fixes and additions BftB does with the Italian republics, Hanseatic league and filling out the somewhat barebones Slavic faction rosters. They add Sweden though, does that come at a price of removing a different faction from the game? IIRC Medieval 2 has a hard coded 29 + Papal + Rebels faction limit.

If it's so easy, why can't I find it?
Because you don't know how to use google
Okay thanks. All I need to do now is making the game work on my os again

Lol no. Tanks still control like a shitty budget RTS from the 90s.
Are you aware the same shit happens on the other side of the world too?
