No, it's still absolute ass. Even the most extreme overhaul mods can't fix it. The only people who probably could've saved this giant piece of shit would've been the Darthmod team but they mysteriously disappeared after finishing Total War Empire's Darthmod.

The only thing I really hate about MTW2 is that the AI has a bug in sieges where it does nothing as the attacking force even though that causes it to lose by default, which is really annoying.

>the second any of your asses come within sniffing distance the enemy units stop and chase them

>you can do this with 20% of the enemy armies flank, effectively tying up 40% of their units chasing some dumbfuck archer cavalry unit

>general takes a kamikaze dive into your army

>dies like a bitch one minute later

>their army crumples like paper

>repeat over and over again, even if you don't tie up their army their general still jumps into your army like a woman running into the arms of a thousand handsome musclebound men no homo

No idea on total wawa 2 because no way am I going to waste time pirating that too.

How is Ultimate General?

They split the game into 3 and recycle content and mechanics between them because additional 60€ for lackluster DLC on top of the game just isn't enough. Thanks to that we'll never get the "ultimate" Warhammer TW that fans wanted where you can take all the factions and smash them against each other. Atleast you can play them online via Spacewars.

As for the AI I don't know, certainly not as retarded as the people online.


d88986  No.16292357

>>16292305

Pretty sure I did, but this was also ages ago so I could be wrong.

>>16292291

I enjoyed it but I am gay for Warhammer (pre-Age of Smegma obviously) and I enjoyed it despite noticeable flaws. First and foremost, the sieges are shit, being reduced to a single wall instead of a real town. The arrow towers also have infinite range so defenders have no option but to move forward, even if they have artillery. Second, Chaos Warriors were a deep disappointment despite the fact that they made them look cool as fuck and charged extra for them – they are actually the most barebones and least thought-out faction, especially now.

The best things about the game are the unit dynamics and variety and some of the strategic mechanics, but the overwhelmingly simplified battle environments are frustrating. Some factions are much easier than others (dwarves being the unkillable Jew midgets with guns) but that's nothing new to the franchise. The representation of most of the Warhammer characters and VA choices are great, though. Overall I would say avoid it if you are a TW fan and pirate it if you are a Warhammer fan.

Ultimate General like with Gettysburg is pretty fun and addicting when you start getting into it, but you'll find that battles and the AI are really predictable. They're fun games but kind of limited on strategy

>Ultimate General

Fun, very different from Total War though. You have a stamina meter to manage and elevation and fog of war play a much bigger role but it's weird that the game has unlimited ammo for everyone, it doesn't really fit when you're having a war of attrition and everyone has endless supplies. I'm also not the biggest fan of the general mechanic, I don't quite understand why they made them completely invincible, especially considering what a big impact they have. Sadly it only has a single map (Gettysburg), which cuts down replay value quite a bit. I haven't played Civil War yet but I've heard that it's supposed to be quite different so I definitely want to try it out someday.

Total WaWa are easily the best of the post-Medieval 2 titles. This is coming from someone who initially refused to play them for years and wanted the first game to fail, as well as Medieval 2 being my favorite game of all time. Call me a shill, I don't give a shit. These games are fun. They're not without their glaring problems, as with all Total War games, but I do not regret my purchases.

>Is Total WaWa as bad of a Total War game as everyone says it is?

Sort of.

It's a very expensive game series with many factions chopped up into DLC. Arguably, it's sort of worth it since each faction is very unique and has it's own charm. Though, if you were to buy all the DLC together at once it gets very expensive.

Also the game, while more stable than most Total War games is still extremely graphically and cpu demanding. Intel also has their Slimy fingers all over the game with sponsorships so I don't know how well it plays with AMD CPUs.

Seiges are totally bunk. Absolute trash.

Aside from that, the campaign is one of the best in a total war game. The non-siege battles are actually very fun and their are also some fun quest battles.

The modding scene for this game is awesome, makes the game twice as good and fixes some of the issues with the base game.

The game is expensive and requires an expensive computer to run well.

Aside from that I'd say it's a real treat that most people pass up because they hate nu-CA.

Nu-CA really does suck through.

I tried playing it recently and had to auto-resolve every battle because the enemy AI's idea of "hard" difficulty is literally just using militia units and meleeing everything they see ruining any possible fun you could have.

Not to mention all of India and the Americas is god awful to fight through because of how focused native armies are on melee units.

Well to fix the seige's you need two mods.

1. Reduced tower ranges, to make siege artillery actually viable.

2. GCCM, to make the siege maps actually fun.

You can use Crynos's Faction Unlocker to unlock new factions to play as, though in my experience it doesn't play well with other mods without extensive patches. Landmarks of the Old World is a fun mod that works with Crynos though.

Theirs a couple of UI mods that should be easy enough to find. In fact a lot of the most popular mods on the Steam Workshop are really great.

Steel Faith II is an overhaul mod, so it handles tech trees, buildings, units, spells. Its campaign is more challenging than the base game. It also makes battles take longer by giving units more health.

It's super popular because it prides itself on being more true to the lore than the base game. Awesome team working behind it.

Mixu's legendary lords is really great. It fully fleshes out the roster of Elector Counts and adds a bunch of other lords to the game.

Also Mr. Festis's Climate Overhaul is a great mod. It makes the climate system more lore friendly, with factions like Skaven being able to settle any climate.

Empire is the best for scale alone, you get the entire world to work with, but yes of course, the AI is always the problem. I find battles to be just the same things over and over again, you set up a formation and no matter how you set it up the enemy always tries to flank, doesn't matter what the situation is they'll just keep shifting so they can flank which means even if you are defending you have to attack because they'll just pick one side and keep moving if you move to defend. It becomes so predictable
