>>13942544

Lot of little quality of life improvements and tweaks here and there, but mechanically they're pretty much the same. The DLC from the first game works on the second in a rare instance of not being complete jews. They're still overpriced and lack any sort of discount for getting them all at once if you're going to spend money on it.

I'd love the Emp map for R2 grand campaign but as for either they're both shit. Too many lolpanicbutton unit abilities and not nearly enough need to use your brain. Attila also has far, far too many tacked on mechanics that don't make sense or simply suck ass.

I've had light infantry progress into heavy and then back into light as a course of natural research. I've had scorched earth tampon zones because the AI is too dumb to proper colonize or defend his gains. The cold mechanic is something that would be heavy handed for TWWa. Diplomacy, gimped as it always was in TW is even worse since you've got three hard line camps: romans go home, huns go home and either roman or hun. Everyone but the few dlc factions looks, fights and generally plays the same. Somehow they managed to increase the frequency of garrison battles. Extremely low effort given to graphics; for example they only feature two (one and a half actually) chainmail textures. For comparison Barb Inv had near a dozen and some of the crazy mods have as many as a hundred. And that's of the top of my head

>I love the focus on germanic/nordic units.

>I've had scorched earth tampon zones because the AI is too dumb to proper colonize or defend his gains.

This is no way a bad mechanic since the huns can do the same to you, effectively running the whole map with the raze mechanic.

>The cold mechanic is something that would be heavy handed for TWWa.

How exactly? The only annoyance is the fact your units suffer penalties in winter season.

>Diplomacy, gimped as it always was in TW is even worse since you've got three hard line camps: romans go home, huns go home and either roman or hun.

Attila has one of the workable diplomacy where factions don't betray you out of nowhere like in Medieval 2. You can maintain a peaceful alliance with the huns.

>Everyone but the few dlc factions looks, fights and generally plays the same.

There are various cultures in the same, and while they are similar factions within the culture, they don't actually fight the same, play the celtic the same way you play as the germanic and you are gonna be in a reckoning.

>Extremely low effort given to graphics; for example they only feature two (one and a half actually) chainmail textures.

That sounds like nitpicking to me considering there are more details put into historical armors.

>Funny how the dlc shit actually got some focus.

Main game got enough focus already.

Anon, you obviously love that shit enough to look past it's faults. Hell, to shill for it. I on the other hand don't care for it enough to play a pirated version for more then a couple of days and throw my hands up in boredom and disgust. I think it's garbage, I know it can't be modded worth a spit and I'm pretty sure we're not going to see eye-to-eye no matter how much I rebuff your bullshit.

No, it's a question of generational clash. One prefers junky and deep enough to provide a good platform for further modding and the other likes shallow, easy to grasp, streamlined and big shiny buttons that allow for plays to make phone tier tacticians happy. One looks for campaigns that last days if not weeks and the other those that last hours or twitch streams. And of course not. I generally can't stand racing games but I'm sure some of them are alright if you're into that. Thing is, the fact that you threw some shekels on steam doesn't mean it's good either.

Empire should be playable with the latest patch, at least in terms of stability. It still doesn't run great on toasters but if you've got the hardware there shouldn't be huge issues.

A supreme commander game tends to last super long time because it's mainly a battle of attrition.

Units aren't endless in TW so ergo, a battle will end in less than an hour.

It's not on-disc to say at least. Some factions are only expanded due to the DLC.

It wasn't an ambush and you can actually have big armies in the old games because they don't bog the shit down with all the new muh graphixxx bullshit. Like I care that my triarii has dents in his shield and a frown on his face if the animations stutter because the engine can't handle that many dudes. Plus it's a pretty simple change to make units not route within a minute of combat so you actually have time for tactics with something besides cavalry.

Attila has women mixed into the levy units for most barbarian and horde factions.

WaWa doesn't have too many women because nerds would rightfully throw a shitfit.

I know less about nip culture so it wouldn't bother me as much. The Romans would most definitely not let women anywhere near a battlefield.


7de952 No.13964219

>>13964199

Depends on your standard for "can handle". Yeah they were there, bit their animations aren't going to be playing right and some other fun problems related to that. The engine itself was stuttering because of too many soldiers and this battle was just two stacks. I don't even want to try more.

inb4 toaster, even my brothers brand new PC had the same problem

I believe they justified the women DLC with some obscure references to female gladiators. I don't doubt some women fought in the arenas as a novelty but enough to make a whole regiment is highly unlikely.


8749d2 No.13964241

>>13964232

Even if they somehow managed to form a regiment, any Roman general would have chopped off his own dick before sending women to battle, it would have been immensely shameful.

Oh and I forgot, even having gladiator units is already questionable. Gladiators were considered dirt by the Roman military, they only got popular with the normies sometimes.

Med2 just has very obfuscated diplo mechanics, just like it has very obfuscated ancillary and trait mechanics. You can game the system easily enough if you know what you're doing. Same with SH2 but the numbers aren't hidden from the player.

Wish that happens in a regular TW game to be honest, so it's kinda like Crusader Kings 2 where you can confederate with other kingdoms and become say, Germania.

Is there anyway to stop myself from getting my ass kicked? I play the dwarves and the wood elf faggots always get an army filled with skirmish bitches that stay out of my vision. The gyrocopters are fucking garbage that lose to any unit with range in the game


18d763 No.13964801

>>13964752

either with a lot of dwarven crossbows or a lot of heavy armor chaff to just eat the arrows until they're forced to 1v1 you fgt. gyrocopters are for anything that cant shoot back


b9c99f No.13964824

>>13964801

I always feel like gyrocopters were way underpowered. Even if the enemy can't shoot back they take way too long to actually do any work. Also they should really get a shoot while moving buff if nothing else. Or an increase to 8 models to actually do any damage. the enemy heroes are skirmishers who stay out of vision so crossbows aren't very effective.


18d763 No.13964892

>>13964824

theres 2 types of gryos. the shooting type is for killing single units like heroes but for skirmisher heroes they're only good for tying them up while you get another hero to go fight them. and then bombers have the bomb ability which great when the enemy blobs but otherwise useless and probably better off with irondrakes for mass killing

Maybe when they hit something it might do a bit of damage assuming the hero isn't on anything that flies. These things are slow as fuck compared to any mounted hero. Any ideas for how i could use them? assuming they're even good against wood elves.


18d763 No.13965001

>>13964941

gyrocopters are only good against non-missile ground groups and even then only good for support your troops and not in any large numbers. basically your best bet against elves is just mass some dwarves that have armor and shields and you eat fucking arrows until they're forced to melee you and die

Gotcha anon. I usually limit my ranged troops to 2 units and rarely 3 units since they're so hard to defend against the inevitable chariot/ cavalry rush. I think it's alittle unfair that the empire and elves have lenient use of nets while the dwarves have to cough up over 800 gold for a one use item with a huge recharge time.

Nigger, WaWa has been out for years. You couldn't do the tiniest bit of research to see if you'd actually enjoy the game? The only "on disk" DLC content when the game came out was Chaos. The rest is stuff that was patched in later. I don't agree with roster DLC for base game factions, but there's nothing wrong with having the DLC factions patched in as an incentive to purchase and to make sure mods work.
