Attila is an unoptimized mess, try this launcher fix to try and improve performance.
Launch Rome 2 then launch Attila instead from the Total War launcher. FPS can increase anywhere between 1 to 25.

I've been to the theater today to watch the international remasterized version of Kagemusha, by Akira Kurosawa. I must admit it's the best classical war film I have ever seen.

I went full TW:Shogun mode and left the theater to get back home and start a new campaign with clan Takeda in order to drop my ashigaru and cavalry all over the country.

Irrelevant. The south raised the flag of insurrection before Lincoln had so much as stepped in the White House, and had arrogantly vowed to not give up until savagely beaten into submission. While there certainly was some moralistic thinking behind it, emancipation in the end was simply a pragmatic tool of economic warfare to be used against rebellious states. Just like the Anaconda plan, or Sherman's march to the sea.

Ultimately it was the South that decided that the Union would be preserved by total warfare. They can answer for why it was such a messy affair.

Just got Attila from a friend for my birthday today. I've seen you guys talk about it a lot, but do you have any essential tips?

Prepare your anus, definitely the hardest and most delicately-played Total War. Make no choices lightly.
>>
>>127506814
For provinces, focus on these things first:
Food
Sanitation
Public Order
Economy.

Unless you're a barbar, not every province needs to be a military production province. I say "unless you're a barbar" because barbarian factions get military units from their food and public order buildings.

Provinces will have one or two resources sometimes (though sometimes a province will have no special resources). Open up the building browser and find that resource and look at the last building(s) in the chain so you can potentially plan your economy around it.

You might start with wheat farms since it produces the most food, but climate change will make it so wheat is worthless. Goats, I believe, are the best food production after climate change. Or maybe it was cattle? I cannot remember.

Christian religions (except Eastern Christianity) cost money. Other religions (usually) cost food. As climate change occurs, you'll probably want to switch to Christianity to conserve as much food as possible.

Huns and White Huns lower morale of Christian armies by 10. Be careful.

Hammer and anvil.

Jesus Christ the Danes are motherfucking unstoppable in multiplayer in AoC.

Not only did I get steamrolled facing off against a Danes player as Asturias, but I got steamrolled by the AI when I replicated the match in custom battle to try a different build! Ditto for the Lombards.

I'm usually a fan for the changes that AoC introduced to combat, but is it really fair having a faction that pretty much wins the second they get into melee?

inb4
> use cav dipshit

I did, but even the basic spearman in a spaghetti line can ruin Royal Knights. Even their paper-armoured axe troops can ruin cavalry if they get them bogged down (which they will, because if you try to withdraw the cav instantly dies).

Buying any kind of high-tier infantry is even more worthless, since the axes completely negate their armour. My 950g heavy inf were the first to die in the entire army!

The only feasible way I can see of countering Danes is just having half your army be archers and kiting the shit out of them with some supporting cav to harass.

It's the same deal with star forts in FotS. By the time you research them you're already on the offensive with your Armstrong gun-heavy doomstacks.

Sort of like a fleet in being.

You never use it because the threat of it is more than enough to give the AI pause.

Also as much flak as staying christian gets. I have to say their late tier techs are fantastic. you just have to build all your ancient roman stuff first and then go full christian techs afterwards.

>>127521963
The one time I got the Sassanids to assault one of my walled towns they basically waited until the walls had crumbled to nothing and the entire settlement was on fire. Though I suppose that was the point.
>>
So I finally beat the Attila campaign as ERE.

I'm thinking of doing WRE next. Surely it must be a bit easier?

Plan of action:

>demolish churches for early money
>buttress Italy and Spain
>hold as much of Gaul as I can
>fuck Britain
>fuck Africa?

When the money is coming in from Italy and Spain, start retaking what I can.

Make sense?
>>
>>127523876

Forgot to add, easier because you don't have 2 really dangerous fronts to fight on, 1 of which being the Sassykid doomstacks.

With ERE I converted to Greco roman paganism. The sanitation bonus and extra cash at the beginning really helped me to get things rolling. By the late game, though, shit was getting messed up with food only just sufficient in most provinces. I didn't have to deal with the -10 morale, though.

As WRE Latin Christianity has extra osmosis power so I'm thinking of demolishing the churches first but then rebuilding later once I have so extra dosh.

Best religion plan?
>>
>>127523876
I played WRE on hard but i found that if you can take all of Mauretania early, than you can easily hold Mauretania and africa.

I also found that a good front is Auitania and Narbonensis Liguria and Venetia.

Aquitania can fairly easily be defended by an army and a fleet while the other 3 can be defended easily with one army.

Also agents are your friends. especially priest.
>>
>>127524565

I'm not really an insane TW player so I usually play on hard/VH campaign but with the battles on normal because fuck bonuses.

Thanks for the Maginot line ideas. Will try it out tonight.

Also, what units did you rush? As ERE my armies were basically the legio and comitatenses spears with some merc cavalry thrown in. I'd just tie down their line and bum rush the enemy general ASAP.

WRE seems to have stronger infantry than ERE.

>>127524960
I tend to go balanced techs early but then full on economy once i feel my basic units are decent enough against the enemy. though if anything the true strength of the WRE is in their crossbows.

Sassanids hold turkey but they shouldn't even be a threat anymore. everything east on the map is essentially a wasteland except for the few settlements here and there. The white huns destroyed the Sassanids but in turn the Sassanids destroyed the Eastern empire. but now that Attila is dead my legions are free to take ground at an insane pace.

Think it's time to hang up my Lakhmid campaign.

Everything was going fine, consolidating Aethopia and Arabia. Then the Sassanids attacked me, so i took Edessa, Antoichia and Ctiesphon.

A civil war has just broken out, taking Himyar and Antiochia ( my only Mediterranean port so trade has been cut off ) Judea has just declared war on me. Everyone is at war with me. My armies fight off two stacks in one battle, but a third comes from nowhere, out of a selection of 14 factions to send armies to me.

I can fall all the way back and build up again from scratch but thinking, i've had my fun on this campaign and time to try something else.

Any recommendations?

There is this strategy called kiting, and its the bane of that army. Refuse a frontline engagement. Shoot them until you cant shoot anymore, THEN attack. Against an infantry heavy army, dont give them what they want, simply hammer into their weakness and dont charge until every single missile is spent. Reminds me of rtw tourneys where they eventually banned more than 2 horsearchers because said strategy would absolutely crush any army with a weak missile contingient. Once fought a 50 minute battle as macedon where I finally won after he had spent every single missile and then charged my last pikewall, which i had managed to get to a corner, and barely won with my unit almost dead. For 50 minutes he kited and denied me the engagement I wanted, if he brought one more missile unit he would have won easily, thankfully it was against the golden 2 ha limit.

The mongols are overestimated everywhere because
1)they move so fast that by the time reports come in, they are everywhere at once and they constantly recount the same force
2)mongol tactics make it impossible to count them
3)Europeans like exaggerating; see: muh million persians

China is huge tho m8

The standing army by the end of the mongol wars was 1.5 million for china and 500,000 for the mongols. They sent 20-40k to eastern europe, 30-50k to central asia, thats it. Might have picked up more recruits along the way but thats it.

M2 and RTW have hardcoded limits to how many factions you can have in the game, it's why most of the map is just rebels. It's one thing Warscape indisputably does better, see >>127529960 for comparison.

>>127562741
Honor is for bitches that worry about being on the wrong side of someone's sword. Its coward insurance, the everlasting hope that after a life of warfare, he might be spared in the climax of his life. The mongol does not fear the blade of his enemies, so he has no desire to treat rebels to the eternal sky as anything more tham diseased cattle to be herded together and slaughtered.

Can any proud independent Romans give me some battle tips for the WRE in Attila? Just picked it up the other day and struggling with the battles, I win most of them but I take horrendous casualties in the process and considering pretty much the entire world is at war with me my armies don't have time to recover before the next barbarians come storming over the borders.

Still very early game and I'm mainly using comistanses (or whatever they're called) spears and a few skirmishes and light cav. I'd like some more cav but they seem hard to recruit in my border regions as they're not setup for it. The comistanses apparently all have heavy armour but they still seemed to get badly mauled by the Germanic spear bands even though they eventually beat them. Are there any specific tactics that are good to try and keep Roman casualties down?

Hey, can any if you post your system specs if you are able to run Attila well?

Just got it and it runs pretty poorly even though r2 ran on extreme and that makes me worried for warhammer. Need to know what to upgrade.

I have a 970

because the setting is interesting, as are the characters.

Played it to death and back. TW really needs to start expanding to the East the next game.

>>127583137
3 kingdoms and jiang hu shows are also extremely overplayed in chink media. The worst bit is that modern iterations have terrible CG accompanying it.
>>
>>127583498
The Chinese modders believe that the 3 Kingdoms setting is basically their "muh 300" so they hate it also
>>
>>127583137
The more I think about it, the more East Asia total war set during the 1200s would seriously be a good title. There’s a lot of parallels that can be drawn to Rome 2’s factions.

Southern Song Dynasty = Macedon
Taking Sino/Chinese culture as the equivalent to the Hellenic/Greek culture.

Jurchen Jin Dynasty = Parthia
Cavalry dominant, but can eventually field decent infantry.

Mongols = Saka/Sauromatae/Scythia
Horse archer spam incarnate. Alternatively may also be seen as Rome because they’re the “winners"

Western Xia/Tanguts = Seleucids
While it’s a mishmash of Chinese and Tangut/Steppe culture, but more Chinese. Seleucids are an Eastern-Hellenic hybrid, but more Hellenic.

Western Liao/Kara Khitan = Pontus
Chinese and Steppe culture mishmash, but more Steppe. Pontus is an Eastern-Hellenic hybrid but more Eastern.

Tibet = Armenia
Mountain kingdom, some of the heaviest cavalry of the Far East second to the Jin Dynasty (Armenian vs Parthian Cataphracts) but limited.

Genpei Japan = Epirus/Illyrians/Odrysian Kingdom/Dacians
Epirus because some Chinese influence, Illyrians because of as wako pirates raiding the lands to their west, and Odrysian because of their obsession with 2-handed polearms such as the naginata, which is like the Thracians with their rhomphaia. Dacians because their yumi bows aren’t that bad, but not stellar. Same can be said of the Dacians’ horse archery and foot archers. Also falxes.

Goryeo Kingdom = Bosphorus
Located in the north, Chinese-influenced. Tends to get invaded by nomads to the north. The Chinese once said that the Koreans had the best foot archers.

Southeast Asians = Celtics and Germanics and Iberian barbars
They’re relatively lighter in equipment, utilize javelins and falcata-like swords, and lack siege equipment and navies.

Dai Viet = Massalia
Southeast Asian faction with Chinese cultural influence.

Dali Kingdom = Colchis
Chinese-like mountain faction, but generally fields light troops

the "Max-Quality" setting is, but "Quality" should be doable, unless attila is worse optimized than rome 2 and actually runs worse? I just dont want to have problems with Warhammer and end up having to run it at medium or something. Total war games dont really scale well and lowering the settings makes them look like ass.
>>
attila is literally on the same engine as r2 with the same effects and everything, literally everything the same
it's like BI was to the original rome, an expansion and nothing more
so how did they manage to fuck the optimization up
>>
>>127583498
without a doubt, but the only time you're really going to run into it as a western is if you study China or play Dynasty Warriors - which is slowly turning all the non-descript males into fujobait. ROTK tv series are usually fairly historical comparably.
>>
>>127584002
They were steppe in origin but also fielded rather capable heavy infantry. They'd be a cross between Mongol and Chinese in terms of army composition with more heavy cavalry
>>
Does the AI in FotS ever get around to creating modern armies?

They're just constantly sending melee-only armies with wooden cannons that just get mowed down.

At best, they'll make better rifle infantry, but nothing like "Shogunate Infantry" and shit.

You probably are going to get fascism because your governments have disenfranchised most of their people tbqh. Either it'll be anti-nationalist neo-fascism under the current regimes, or actual fascism after the day of the rope. I thank God for being born in America, and other colonial peoples should have a similar perspective, that we ultimately have a culture of self-sufficiency and local government to fall back on when shit hits the fan.
>>
>>127584543
I'm playing with the TROM mod, and their armies are decently divided between modern and traditional. I don't know what's going on, but melee charges by spears/swords is an almost insta-rout for the early rifle units.

Battle Bitches are all way overpowered tbqh familio, it kinda ruins things, I felt dirty after this siege but I needed it to take Rome. It's one thing to dirty a game with silly units for political reasons, it's another thing to completely fuck any balance in the same act.

A man who was originally a joke of a youtuber on /fit/, now he's a joke here because he did a Asturias campaign LP. He's a Swedish bodybuilder, nordicist, neo-pagan, and living meme.
>>
>>127585743
Also, the infantry stuff is a reference to how, in his first big battle, he started ranting about Christian Evropa and heretics and such while he was trying to do some dank ninja circling with his slow infantry and ended up walking his spearmen into a braced line.

Was there ever any historical record of Roman armies actually using gladiators to fight a battle?
>>
>>127585743
>>127585970
I'm still following his Asturias campaign since it was posted here. He's about halfway to reconquering Iberia form the "heathens"
>>
I have bought Age of Charlemagne and played it for nearly 10 hours and I can officially report that it's the most fun I've had since Napoleon

I was dreading Medieval III on warscape but this has raised my hopes significantly
>>
>>127586195
There was an account of gladiators used to defend the city of rome in a civil war. I believe that was during sulla's time.
>>
>>127586195
I don't know, but I presume not. Slaves are usually not put in any position where they can fuck things up because, when they are, they do so immediately. Being a major part of an infantry force is a very powerful position, indeed.

>>127586316
He must be pretty shit m8, Asturias is easy-modo.

>>127586470
I agree my friend! With CA's recent impeccable releases I finally can safely pre-order all their future releases.

>>127586470
I'd have picked it up by now but I was put off by the scale of the map. Sounds petty but I'd have liked to at least have Turkey.

>>127586195
>>127586494
Pompey fucked up some gladiators and that's about as far as it goes in terms of open battle.
>>
>>127586516
>He must be pretty shit m8
ofcourse he is. He clicks attack orders with all his men on a single unit.

Does he look like an understander of strategy to you?
