Why still play the tabletop when this comes out?
>>
No Tomb Kings, for one.
>>
>>44689075
Also no Skaven.
>>
>>44689044
Because it's only going to have five armies at first, and even then they will only have part of their rosters done. I don't blame CA for this because the Warhammer universe is fairly large, but we will certainly still have a place for 8th edition, 9th Age, and Age of Sigmar when it comes out.
>>
>>44689044
Because no sigmarines.
>>
>>44689044
Because the tabletop will, even without official support, have the benefit of being a social activity, which makes it infinitely more varied than a Total War game.
>>
Not tyranids. Also, I've got starcraft instead.
>>
>>44689121
you can still play it with a friend.
>>
>>44689044
No mod support

>and we already have a better CK2 mod to play Warhammer with
>>
>>44689044
because no modding support
>>
>>44689044
Because I'm not only a gamer, but also a hobbyist. There is no hobby side to this game.I'll pay it some, get through the campaign, and go back to table top wargaming
>>
>>44689106
What are the five armies?
>>
>>44691250
If I recall right i think its Empire, Chaos, Orkz, Vampires and Brittons.
>>
>>44691250
Empire, Orcs, Vampire Counts, Dwarves and Chaos as pre-order DLC.
>>
Well for a start, that particular version of the setting is dead now isn't it?
>>
>>44690430
>and we already have a better CK2 mod to play Warhammer with

It lags so extreme, it is unplayable.
>>
>>44692008
Nah, its vamps, dwarfs, empire and chaos. Chaos is day one DLC too.
>>
>>44692036
Warhammer lives
>>
>>44689092
>Also no Skaven.
Good. I'm sick of games with skaven.

>>44689115
>no sigmarines
Good. I'm starting to get interested in the game now.
>>
>>44692036
AoS is way more dead as a setting than WFB.
>>
>>44689044

Because I like playing with toy soldiers.
>>
>>44689044
For social interaction with friends.
>>
Because I don't like Warhammer.
>>
They said they aim to add "the major 16 faction"

So maybe Kislev or Chaos Dwarfs as playable, who knows?
>>
>>44689044
If you need to be told why, then tabletop is not for you.
>>
no one plays fantasy battle anymore we all play age of sigmar now
>>
>>44689044
Why play d&d when Baldur's Gate exists ?
Why play 40k when DoW exists ?
Why play Shadowrun when the games exist ?

Because it's fun.
>>
>>44689044
Why not do both ?
>>
>>44695107
here's your reply
>>
>>44689044
I don't remember people asking that about 40k when Dawn of War came out.
>>
>>44689044
Because GW wishes they could outjew Sega and CA.
>>
Well you literally can't because they killed it and replaced it with age of sigmar.
>>
>>44695309
Its not like they tracked down and burned all the rulebook. But it is hard to keep interest up for a dead game sadly.
>>
No lizardmen.
>>
>>44692036
>Well for a start, that particular version of the setting is dead now isn't it?
so is actual history, there are still games set in those times
>>
Because in a computer game I can never see the whole board in a significant scale.
>>
have you ever played a CA game op? Really?

I like painting and the entire hobby thing. Is this supposed to be some kind of low grade bait?
>>
>>44695638

not yet. Apparently they're putting teams together to deal with that.
>>
>>44692008
Spot the 40k player.
>>
>>44695638
>But it is hard to keep interest up for a dead game sadly.

Welcome to /tg/, there's a Battletech General just around the corner.
>>
>>44689121
Actually total-war games are some of the funnest to play co-op or vs.

You can't really play them with randomers because of the way turns work, but with friends over skype it's probably the most fun i've had doing co-op
>>
>>44693805
knowing CA they will probably add every possible playable faction as DLC as they like to make money.

This kind of ethos leads to shit like Chaos as day 1 dlc, but if the end result is Chaos Dwarfs as dlc I don't mind it as much desu.
>>
>>44689106
>but we will certainly still have a place for 8th edition, 9th Age, and Age of Sigmar when it comes out.
No room for 6th edition? I mean now that all the gameist editions are unsupported, may as well switch to the one that worked the best as a game.
>>
>>44689075
this

if i can't be a spooky mummy lich that controls armies of undead, then it is not fun
>>
>>44697758
Didn't they say they're doing some sort of trilogy thing? If they're smart they'll do four new factions a game with one dlc each. But lets be honest they're going to be the greediest dicks possible.
>>
>>44697683
I meant more that the social context itself adds something which only a game can't emulate. Playing Scrabble with friends is different from playing Scrabble online.
>>
>>44700271
Yes. Three games whose maps automatically connect to each other depending on which ones you own.

ULTHUAN FUCKING WHEN CA?
>>
>>44700271
I'm hoping Lizardmen and Tomb Kings will come in one pack so I don't have to worry about anything else.
