Discuss anything Total War here

So CA just showed some Three kingdoms footage, and it looks pretty good, Open Siege battles from the get go, fluid animations with no janky blobbing and shittiness, clean informative UI.

They might actually pull this off by the looks of it, but stay aware of any bullshit move.

Total WaWa 3 at E3, calling it now

The last good Total War was Napoopean, Shogun 2 for coop. It's a shame we never got Empire's scale/ambition with Napoopean's gameplay improvements.

>clean informative UI.

This is actually really important to me, Shogun 2's UI was horrific going form over function. I can't quite put my finger on it but both in the campaign map and in battles it never felt fluid to me and I couldn't ever work out what was going on just at a glance.

Btw, looking at that video makes me question whether there will be any actual strategy in the game. It looks way arcadey with fantasy style characters and effects, and little room for fine tactics when each general has 2-5 units.

Guy runs into a stationary shield and is flung back 15m at 4 times his running speed, just like the 10 people who stood near a horseman walking in their general direction. Soldiers scale a wall in around two seconds with what? six hops, each their own height.

It all feels sped up too, or everyone is ultra strong and twitchy and gravity is twice that on Earth.

Duels look like action film final boss fights, but I like the concept.

I imagine it's from the people who made candy crush and they're worried we will get distracted by some shiny object while playing.

Cutscenes and introductions make me worried the game will be heavily scripted and some characters unkillable. At least untill their supposed-to-lose-fight where they get impaled by the Great Hammerdwarf of St. Bum Nose in the opening cutscene, who only dies after 900 arrows to the face.

Bit worried about magical bs buffs and debuffs.

More worried about bs unit caps and who can lead & train what and how many.

I am possibly too cynical. Let's hope so and that the game puts all our concerns to rest.

You can enjoy the later games but they don't hold up in comparison to the earlier ones, enjoyment doesn't have a direct correlation with quality.

>>55664

>Last truly good Total War was Medieval II before their switch to the shit engine.

The engine is flawed but it works well enough for primarily ranged combat like in Empire/Napoopean. Obviously it still sucks in siege battles and if it devolves into a melee fight but that's less of an issue.

>>55708

>Napoleon had really fun battles BUT TERRIBLE EVERYTHING ELSE. I wouldn't even mind if they redid it with the current total war system.

The campaign definitely suffered from being far too small compared to Empire which in my opinion has the best campaign map of any Total War. Napoleon's battles with Empire's campaign would be ideal.

How would that fit into the battle system though? It was pushed to its limit handling late-era Napoleonic stuff. You could maybe go as far as Crimea or American Civil War before it just needed a complete overhaul.

Problem is there's really no such thing as unit cohesion which is what kills it. Even if they could find some way to handle it as well then if you were going all the way from early industrial revolution into WW1 the way combat worked would have to change radically halfway through the game.

None really get the feel right tbh, the whole game needs to be built around pike and shot with combined melee and firearms formations with units along with a completely overhauled pike fighting system (you can't have the current one of 2 sides running into each other) .I wouldn't mind if it was just a "saga" title set in the English Civil War at this stage tbh.

Yeah, I've been pushing for that since I first saw The Italian Wars on TWC in ~2014, but combined arms systems are too complex for CA. It's annoying because it would fill a massive niche that only Cossacks and Pike & Shot (the slytherine computerization of a tabletop wargame) occupies right now, and Cossacks is, to be honest, total shit (they should have done combined arms and used the cossacks 2 map system with roads and villages smh). Nothing currently around does everything right.

I always felt like the games needed to give more emphasis to generals until I saw how cancerous having a full ability tree like in Shogun 2 turned out. Still they've never sat quite right with me feeling like they don't have enough influence on battles beyond morale. I do sometimes turn on that camera option where you can't go too far away from them but that's just annoying.

>I always felt like the games needed to give more emphasis to generals until I saw how cancerous having a full ability tree like in Shogun 2 turned out.

I've always held that the semi-random nature of generals was much better than the skill tree system. Having to look at your general's skills and determine how best to use him made much more sense both in gameplay and logic than the skill trees.


9d5058  No.56079

>>56054

A general's stats should have more impact on battles. That was always something I felt was lacking. There has to be a way to make a 1-star general play differently from a 10-star general for the player. As it stands, if your super general dies you just throw the next guy onto your stack and keep moving.

tfw no realism combo going even further than HistWar, where you issue orders as a general and they are delivered by rider or runner & enemies might intercept the messenger.

Another thing missing from every game around right now is a real supply system, it would be amazing to have baggage trains and in-battle resupply; an artillery dump that could be targeted for a massive explosion, intercepting waggons taking ammunition to the front etc

If I must play Devil's Advocate, it makes scouting a thing. You are able to scout out enemy armies and move accordingly. With a Risk style map, you can move an army into a province that is right next to a giant enemy army, without any way to do anything about it.

That being said, I can't stand movement in the non-risk games. It feels so imprecise.

Pic related makes it very hard for me to enjoy Medieval II as much as Rome. I don't mind slower battles, but this is just ridiculous. At least arrows are more realistic (almost; for the units that aren't wearing armor upgrades, arrows should work as they did in Rome).

In other words, you're missing the point. This is a game of battlefield tactics and strategy. Certain situations call for certain ways of dealing with them. I might need as many weak men as possible to charge forward a certain way and attack, or maybe I'm ambushed from the side while I was focused elsewhere and need my cavalry to charge a certain way, fast with as many as possible to join the fight. The situations are countless.

Your relentless defending of mediocrity is reminiscent of a redditor, or a shill, hence my first reply. Kill yourself.

Ah, but in this case the entire city was starving.

>Yin Ziqi had besieged the city for a long time. The food in the city had run out. The dwellers traded their children to eat and cooked bodies of the dead. Fears were spread and worse situations were expected. At this time, Zhang Xun took his concubine out and killed her in front of his soldiers in order to feed them. He said, "You have been working hard at protecting this city for the country wholeheartedly. Your loyalty is uncompromised despite the long-lasting hunger. Since I can't cut out my own flesh to feed you, how can I keep this woman and just ignore the dangerous situation?" All the soldiers cried, and they did not want to eat. Zhang Xun ordered them to eat the flesh. Afterwards, they caught the women in the city. After the women were run out, they turned to old and young males. 20,000 to 30,000 people were eaten. People always remained loyal.

I was thinking of making an account just to post on their forum. Latest version released a month ago. I think it's a relatively new mod. Along with the capitals issue, the mod is also loaded with typos. but there's cool attention to detail, too.

House Dagoth is kind of a jokey faction. They start you out with just Red Mountain and starting units are dreamers and different types of corprus monsters. All week melee infantry but you can just keep recruiting loads of them for almost nothing. House Dagoth doesn't have to worry about agriculture or sanitation. All buildings related to them are unbuildable. The Nerevarine comes after you with an army within the first few turns, so you have to try and take Ghost Gate before he reaches Red Mountain. After that, you're taking Vvardenfell bit by bit until what will probably be an impossible war against all Morrowind Great Houses at once.

Also, it plays the Morrowind soundtrack music. The exploration music on the campaign map and the battle music on the battle map and the level up music when you win a battle. The soldiers on the battlefield are all little Morrowind characters.

It has several issues, crashing half the time you enter a battle being one of them. Cav is also stupidly overpowered, and replenishing troops can be a nightmare cause, if I remember correctly, not all tech branches have access to field hospitals. Another big issue is that once two units get into melee, they get entangled until one of them dies. No retreat, no morale, no option to escape; it's a fight to the death. A morale system would be a welcomed addition to the game.

That being said, the game has a lot of pluses. I do like the campaign map (though you could end up fighting way too many battles in a few places, making it repetitive) and I'd say the diplomacy is better than in TW games. You could have real allies, instead of everyone hating for just existing. Minor nations were cool and the annexation system was a neat idea. The Arab countries, with their different troops, were also quite refreshing, and I was able to destroy full armies with just five regiments of mamluks. I also like how the branching tech tree is handled, and the fact that different political systems don't play exactly the same.

For it's size, Imperial Glory has a lot of really neat ideas. It's a real shame none of them were implemented 100% right; for every cool thing that game has, you can find something that makes that thing not-so-cool. In any case, if anyone was to take Imperial Glory, re-do it and do it right, we would have an awesome TW substitute in our hands.

Previously, on House Dagoth: Total War

After the Nerevarine was mortally wounded at Ghost Gate by one of Dagoth Ur's blighted denizens, Balmora and Caldera were swiftly claimed. Ald'ruhn fell next, along with the last of House Redoran. Then, ash vampires hunted down and exterminated the Urshilaku Ashlanders, in the first steps towards nullifying the prophecy for good.

Now Gnisis stands as the final bastion in the West Gash, guarded by Cyrodil's army in Fort Darius. In southern Vvardenfell, House Dagoth has claimed Seyda Neen as a foothold into the Ascadian Isles. Anticipating the impending siege, Vivec's rabble marched out to take Seyda Neen back. Supplemented by hired buoyant armigers, the peasant militia threw themselves at our primary defense, but their numbers could not stand against the truth of our message. The seasoned ordinators crept around our flank just in time to gaze upon the slaughtered remains of their front line before joining them in the Dreamsleeve.

Having somehow escaped Balmora, Caius Cosades rallies the garrison of Pelagiad in preparation for our arrival, as most of Cyrodil's eastern forces have been deployed to Ebonheart. This will be Vivec's final chance to regroup before I arrive at his doorstep.

Our mindless corprus zombies fight with the same eagerness in the face of certain destruction as they do when victory is assured and our ash vampire generals are powerful enough to take on an army, alone. Had Old Cosades taken the Sixth House seriously, he would have surely deserted to the mainland long ago. Now his name graces a memorial plaque in Septim's garden, filed under 'C' among 378 others. The beautiful forest around Lake Amaya withers and wilts as the blight rolls over Foyada Mamaea, outshone by the gorgeous brilliance of our message. Vivec's district is painted black as the juggernaut of inescapable truth creeps southward.

In reality there's plenty that happens in China but the recordings are often so poor nobody is exactly sure. There's some good shit where Mongols got repelled by early muskets and some great sea battles of note but again the documentation or at least the intrigue into such events is poor since nobody really went into detailed documentation and we are only just uncovering a lot of old ruins.

tl;dr what I was saying is there's plenty of good juicy history about China to go around but it isn't since Chinko history records most of the juicy stuff like a footnote.

That's simple as shit to understand and they also already summed it up, but I'll assume you're not a complete retard and try to simplify it.

China had a lot of interesting things happen, and many interesting stories. But those stories are unreliable because their record keeping was unreliable, shitty, or otherwise disrupted (like the commies destroying tons of shit back in the 1940s-1950s). That's the reason we don't hear much of them, because we can't verify or connect much of what we're told.

How the hell does this game demands this much, when it looks worse than previous games like Wawa games? Said games dont demand that much, and run well in high settings at PCs like >>123091 maybe not 60fps overall, but runs notably above 30 FPs; Hell, in that setup, game recommended me ultra settings, and it didnt run badly at all, just somewhat slow. Is this game THAT badly optimized? Fuck it, I never bothered with Three dogeater kingdoms before, but everytime a new thing appears, it even makes me less interesed.

The Empire is dependent on strong enemies to give you options for conquest, the early game can be really slow if the bad guys aren't performing well and knocking over other empire factions. You also have to deal with two horde armies coming at you like heat seeking missiles.

The easiest factions in WaWa are the Dorfs and Helfs; they both start off with two of the most profitable settlements in the game, are far away from where Chaos spawns, start off with really good units, have lots of space for conquest early on, and Dorfs have the easiest time confederating while the Helfs get a big fucking ocean between them and everyone else

Jesus Christ. How do I use artillery properly, anyway? I can use mortars and kinda fireworks, but I can't make cannons do anything worthwhile.

Seeing how unreliable arty is against monsters, I think I will stick with anti-infantry ones (except for the fireworks launcher, fuck it). After I realised I won't really bother to hunt down 6000000 of Mousillon skeletons nor do I want to go smash Norscans, I started a new playthrough; dwarfs on a high difficulty. I've had more success with dwarf artillery so far.

Vampires (all AIs, actually, from what I see) spam so many heroes, holy shit. It took them a while to get going, but now every turn starts with hero action spam. I kinda neglected my heroes, so I'm going to be very annoyed for the next couple of turns, until I finish the vampire genocide. It's kinda funny how nobody likes them.

It's a good thing crossbowdwarfs are so ridiculously strong, they shut down vampire fliers easily and can nuke enemy morale quickly as well. Turning around a "lost" battle feels good.

Some of the most fun battles in the series but a campaign that can be a real slog to play through. A smaller than usual roster of factions but they are all unique and play very differently from each other and have some real effort put in to them, but half of it is DLC. Not worth 60 dollars, but 15-20 is a pretty nice deal. Still going to be expensive as shit if you want all the cool stuff and factions, only reason I would recommend buying over piracy is that Norsca last I checked hasn't been cracked yet, somehow

Norsca (and basically the entirety of TW:W1 anyway) is included in TW:W2, which you can pirate and has all the stuff from 1. I suspect that it renders the previous entry completely obsolete, unless one wants to play mini-campaigns.

How do I stop my hammerers from dying so much? It seems that any and all missile units seem to focus them so much. Ignore that here I'm fighting greenskins, I geared for fighting Chaos and couldn't be bothered to retool for one quest fight.

There seems to be a popular opinion that dwarf bombers are crap, but from what I see, bombs are very useful for deleting enemy morale. Is it worth it to keep them, if I can micro them?


1629f0  No.127016

Just get Ironbreakers, anon. Hammerers simply lack shield to defend from missile fire. Although Chaos has no missile units except their hellcannon, I believe. Can't go wrong with Ironbreakers and their ammo though.

Most I can offer for advice here is just put your hammerers behind your shield infantry and hope the AI just shoots at what they see first instead of shooting at the more valuable target.

>all those doom divers

Well, looks like you also got screwed by the enemy army build: when you go up against doom divers it's one of those situations where you should ignore everything else about the enemy army as much as you can until you get rid of them because they are THE premier unit for fucking up elites. And playing dorfs basically means you're going to have to eat a lot of shit from them until you can close the distance and end them.

>Dwarves v Choas

What you want are Thunderers, lots and lots of thunderers.

Also get Iron-Breakers, Hammers suck. Hammerers are literally only useful against Vampires, and even then they are sometimes eclipsed by Giant Slayers.

If you bring those hammers against Chaos then they will just get obliterated by hellfire cannons.

Also you want to use the gyro bombers to kill artillery and pin fast units.

An optimal Dorf army on campaign would be:

8-9 Ironbreakers, maybe a hero or two of your choice.

4 Thunderers

2 Organ Guns

2 Gyrobombers

2 Giant Slayers

Let the Ironbreakers tank as a front line. They nullify charge bonuses so you can just pick a spot and then have them sit there. They will sit there and take all sorts of punishment.

You can either put the Thunderers in an elevated spot to fire over the Ironbreakers, or you can space out your Ironbreakers so they can shoot through the gaps. If the way is clear of threats you can also move the Thunders behind the enemy line and shoot them in the back.

Use the Organ guns to obliterate enemy archers and monsters.

Take the Gryro Bombers over to the enemy artillery and destroy it. Once there is no artillery move the gyros to pin enemy cav. In a 1 v 1 the gyro will lose melee so you are only using it to temporarily pin.

Once enemy fast movers are pined you just send in the Slayers to fulfill their oaths. If there's nothing else for slayers to do you can just send them in the back lines to rear charge.

What, did you forget about the vampire pirates? And that Wawa 3 will have Cathay? And that there complete and extense fan army books of almost all minor factions and races of Warhammer Fantasy, from which CA can literally copy & paste onto the videogame?

Is true that is weird that CA didnt released Kislev on the first game, it would have been perfect they had relrased both Norsca and Kislev in my opinion; But its not like they would release it on Wawa 2 which is focused on Non-Old world faction, so Kislev and other minor factions will possibly be released on Wawa 3.

>Didn't release Kislev

I think there was a poll on their site or somewhere else I can't remember where for which factions that the community wanted released. Kislev I don't think even made it into the top 10.

If there was a poll this is the first I am hearing about it. Know where to find this?

At least I was slightly winning. Vampires are kinda cool, but not for me, I prefer having better economy.
