>It's a "Russia and Ottomans form an alliance that lasts till 1821" episode
why has this happened in 60% of runs
It took thw mongols literally 70 years to fully take china whereas they steamrolled everybody else, including the european poles, hungarians and austrians, easily so obviously they had some pretty good fortresses
lol, mongols didn't touch the austrians you brainlet. They barely made it into Poland and Hungary, the first war came as a complete surprise and they left as soon as they headed in, and the second one and all subsequent invasions were complete disasters.
Wow stop posting if you have that level of historical knowledge.

Sorry but I prefer battles in space because it's closer to naval strategy.

apparently there's beta testing going on for this right now. anybody here play it? anything you're willing to share? i don't know how nda's work, how serious or binding they are and whether they allow you to say even basic shit like "it sucks" or "it's fun"

reminder that the director of starship troopers didnt even read the book, just the blurb on the back and made the movie as an anti-american thing and was supposed to be a satire or some shit, but was so bad at his job he made another hit campy action movie, a genre the guy hated. Robobcop was supposed to be the same too.

Now thanks to this pretentious incompetant dumbass, everyone thinks of the movie instead of the good-ass book. I mean, I think hes even said that he just used the name of the book to bait fans of the book into watching the movie, or something like that.
Yes yes, everyone knows that Dutch fuck is a retard who doesn't know what satire is.
But normal grunts in flak vests fighting 7 foot tall spider like killing machines is based as fuck.
That's most strategy games.

Uhhh this happen to anyone else? I've never experienced this in any other game, I'll walk off for hours in random directions in Minecraft, but this really set me off for some reason.
Guess I'm fucked for progression.
idk man maybe you should try getting used to it
yup, yup, had this happen to me in subnautica.
you just power through it i guess. in subnautica the enemies turned out to just not be all that lethal anyway so that made it easy.

How do i git gud in this mod? the weapons have a very bad acuraccy and the orks keep raping me with their pistols

when i played the best strategy i found was basically giving everyone a long las and just sniping the enemies from my chimera
>a few heavy bolters
>maybe some ogryns or at least shotguns to clear the landing
>bolters and shotguns later on
>a few grenade launchers
>everyone else with a long las
is not a terribly fun way to play but orks are simply too deadly at range and standard lasguns are worthless
long las do massively more damage, are way more reliable and have unlimited range
fighting chaos was always tremendously more enjoyable since traitor guard are dangerous but not so invincible and even chaos marines barely scare me more than orks but im ok with them being terrifying for lore reasons
later on the game becomes to easy like every xcom

Genuinely spent about 5 hours playing and replaying this mission and losing in a new way everytime.

Best I ever did was get all the way to the castle within the time limit only to get the shit smacked out of me by the garrison.

Are Might heroes strictly better than Magic heroes?
Yes, except on small maps.
magic heroes are better at clearing in early game, but in fights with other players might heroes are almost always a lot better

What is your favorite civ scenario? Can be from any civ game.

Mine personally is the Alien invasion scenario from Civ 2.
12 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.
Conquest of the New World
There's this mod you can download from the workshop which ads a Mayan themed Scenario to Civ 5 G&K.
And it's definitely my favorite scenario in any Civ game.

But Civ 5 scramble for Africa is really good, and Samurai Invasion of Korea is really fun if you play as Korea as it focuses on winning battles using ranged superiority and tactics and with less numbers, which is one of the most satisfying and fun things you can do in Civ 5 thanks to 1UPT.

I can be in the mood to play many of the scenarios in that game, but in general I don't think the list was that good.

Paradise Found is like a scenario made for Polynesian history enthusiasts. So it's a scenario made for me in particular, and even i think it's kinda boring.
Into the Renaissance is too long.
Fall of Rome is meh.
I don't care for steampunk so I've only played Smokey Skies once but it is neat.
American Civil war is fun
1066 is kinda eh
The Mongol one isn't vary good you ask me.

Spanish Moroccan Crisis. You need to defend Spain from a Moroccan invasion. I played it a lot as a kid and I remember it was pretty accurate with the units for the Spanish army. There was even the frigate Prince of Asturias.

I'm enjoying Dyson Sphere Program a lot more than Factorio, I feel like I don't have to be as autistic about everything to be efficient and the graphics are nice eye candy compared to Factorio's drab green, grey, and yellow palate.
How does Satisfactory compare to these two? Should I try it as well?
lol, was just going to make a thread on DSP being better.
I played DSP first, factorio is still fun, but I like DSL more
Factorytown shits over both those
You just want a casual, colorful game with no challenge? Ask me how I know you're a zoomer.

Where can I find anaertailin's packs (which are needed by LL) outside of the Steam Workshop?
it makes me sad when my charecters die so I just mod it to make it easier
Love the aesthetics. The game itself is kind of mediocre. Certainly not bad, but I don't think I'd bother playing it if not for the atmosphere.

im telling you guys

check this one out

its the best coomer mod ive ever seen

Played that one, too. It was very well done imo.

>still complaining
its not about the winrate, who the fuck wants to play against protoss that much lmao
>the protoss player doesn't understand that winning can be boring
anything below a 100% wr is imbalanced in the eyes of a T(er)ranny since they unironically believe they have to work harder in game than the other 2 races, since they have to do occasional stutter step micro or line up a drop to hit the same time as their push
It's similar on the Korean server, forGG plays 3 times as many Protoss as Zerg, the cancer spreads.
