Total War: Warhammer

Post by boars » 15 May 2016, 17:27

Not long now...



Bunch of great videos on their channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCugJq1 ... NDYPHiznWQ

Been an age since I've played a total war game but this one looks to be right up my alley.

Was kinda keen on this before and then they announced they'd be officially supporting mods for the first time ever. Could be pretty amazing, depending on what bits they've opened up to people.

A 40k reskin would be rather awesome.

Or something Epic scaled could be interesting.

I will be grabbing this, but I'm leaving it a few months for the usual Total War bugs to be ironed out...
Really looking forward to having a go though, love the table top game, now to see how it translated into Total War.

I think I'm going to Youtube this. I've barely played Stellaris so I'm pretty sure this would just sit on the shelf and receive very little time on the rota.

I've been watching far too many videos of this.... It looks fantastic to me.

Watching a video where a group of three armies had a huge number of goblin doom divers was absolutely hilarious

The review scores that have started coming in are all very good, which is certainly promising. Haven't quite decided yet though!

I'm worried about the usual Total War polish on release.
I love Warhammer and this looks awesome... but just can't trust Total War series.

Hopefully it is good, and I have Overwatch next week, so this will need to be a few weeks afterwards anyway

Really enjoying this game, far too much, suffering from CIV syndrome with just one more turn ending badly for me.

Performance of the game is terrible for me though... and oddly it's not in game with the armies fighting, that performs fine, it's just general campaign map stuff. Really bizzare. It's completely atrocious for me ... :\

Anyway interested in playing a 3v3 or 2v2 game against AI... or against each other?
I am fairly certain you can make the battles that big, just have to make sure that none of us have too many troops or it could kill all performance.

Glorious.

Auto resolve battles are now totally shit however as the AI minces your troops in battles where you'd not lose a single unit/squad/whatever warhammer calls a group. One such instance had me lose half my bleeding units. That's a rediculous amount of death considering I replayed the battle manually and had no unit loss. As such campaigns are going to be hard fought!

Having said that, Skaven are great.
Burrowing up into Elven archers is just so satisfying... and is a fantastic tool to keep them on their toes.

The AI tends to overvalue ranged units in autoresolve. Once workshop mods are enabled again somebody will probably release something to fix it a bit.

I think they intentionally gimped it a bit to encourage you to actually battle it out... although I could be mistaken.
Either way, campaigns are going to be bit more of a struggle to get through in a timely manner.

How is everyone enjoying TW:WH2?
I finally finished a short campaign in #1 and now very much looking at grabbing #2, especially for the full map campaign.

Am super loving it, finished High Elf Campaign, working through a Lizardman one, but I keep PUBGing more than TWWH2.

New races are good, they've all for their own flavour, and I like the new campaign mechanics with the Vortex, I think having a semi time sensitive race going on between all the factions just adds another level which I quite like.

Probably get stuck into a Mortal Empires campaign next week (or later if I get wolfenstein lol), dunno what race to play in it though.

Ignore the vortex in a Dark Elf Campaign... and you just roll over everyone.
Guess it's nice to be able to ignore it if you want.

Skaven are fantastic to play.

Really looking forward to the combined map between one and two... really want to do some co-op at some stage too - beyond stupidly time consuming but it's fun to play.

Even though games would take even longer than they already will, I wish it had support for more than 2 player co-op too

Agreed, a full Civ style game would be awesome. Would need auto resolve on every battle though, and it running on a server somewhere so that people can log in and do their bit when they can.
And I would be up for a 2 player co-op game at some point, even though it would take days to play through...

You auto resolve a lot but having 2 people to divide units between really makes it easy to manage the larger scale battles. Glorious.

but yes almost need to take a holiday to dedicate the time required :P
