>Launcher Trick
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.

That's not accurate at all.

>>128602502
Hannibal didn't have enough Good Carthaginian Points (G.C. Points) to get tendies.
>>
>>128600875
So what's the story with infantry tactics in Empire and Napoleon?

Why do you get Front rank, 3 rank fire then platoon fire in empire then go right back to first rank fire in Napoleon?

As Hamilcar told him when he held him over the sacrificial pit, the only way to get GBP was to wipe Rome off the map.

>>128603093
Unfortunately, just as Hannibal was going to get his GBP and take out Rome, he went into a fit because his brother touched his stuff.

Are we still going on with the Hannibal was a mega-autist thing?

It's the best answer for understanding Hannibal, his tactics, and his reasoning.
>>
>>128602915
Gotta have something on the research tree, otherwise there's less content
Not that it matters because TW games don't connect like you can with Paradox games
>>
>>128603502
I heard he was really confused. He had to destroy Rome, but Carthaginians don't conquer, they turn people into subjects. He couldn't rationalize it so he spent ten years stimming through the Roman countryside until Scipio Africanus put him in time out.

>>128603613
Yeah, that can be an occasional dank meme. Just as long we try to ultimately keep it history-focused and not Pepe-posting
>>
What if, perhaps, Hannibal was coming over the Alps?
>>
>>128602915
CA said 3 rank fire was historically inaccurate by the Nappy era
>>
>>128604128
Yeah and I suppose when he's with Antiochus he'll be in charge of some fleet instead of a land army where he belongs
>>
>>128602915

Nappy used columns which were basically giant charging squares of men. They might've fired a couple of volleys but melee was where this formation excelled at.

Of course such a charge would be preceeded by mass battery with artillery.
>>
>>128602915
I remember reading somewhere that kneel fire was the norm by that time but CA didn't implement that until FOTS.
>>

It'll be interesting to see the different tactics that you'll have to adapt to based on the forces you play. I hope magic and monsters don't completely rule the field and that its just about getting the biggest baddest thing on the field. and it still has its elements of strategy to it.

warhammer fantasy always has had a bit of historical parody to it so I think you'll enjoy it, especially if you start off as a human faction.

>>
>>128642445
True i just worry they'll put the "They're non-playable lol" crap.

Which is dumb because they'd be easy to make, most of the work would just be in new models, as it is you could reuse the dwarf/goblin/orc animations/assets for 90% of that faction.

I just worry they'll fuck them up or get too lazy. I want my big hats damn it!
>>
>>128642712
That's possible, but Chaos Dwarves are technically in the game already if you count the hellcannon.

They'll probably go with the forgeworld models too over the bighats sadly, since those are the most recent model sets.
>>
>>128642712
An Ogre roster would be reasonably easy though balancing it so that they're effective would be difficult and in the tabletop it relies on their impact hits on a charge and an extra attack they get called thunderstomp.

Not really.

Age of Sigmarines is literal 40k clone. Before the end times it's much more lighthearted and unique.

Lahmians, combat-light, some minor magical ability focused around buffing. Ability to enlist human units in the undead army.

Blood Dragons, pure combat monsters, either a blender with normal units or an expert hero killer depending on the skill tree.

Von Carsteins, jack of all trades.

Necrarchs, MAGIC FOR DAYS

Strigori, focus on things like beasts and ghouls in an army. Extra moral damage because of how fucking scary they are.

I'm buying an SSD and I don't know where to start. I've never had an SSD before so I'm just now joining the 21st century in that respect. Gotta be from amazon because I've got one-day prime, and I don't want to spend more than 100-130 bucks on it because I need to get an operating system too (Windows 7) which is really goddamn expensive. I'm done pirating it, never functions properly and I have a looming suspicion that they're all loaded with viruses that fuck your system anyway.

>>
>>128672391

There have been numerous undisputable masterpieces in total war modding, such as the strikingly realistic classic Europa Barbarorum or its medieval counterpart Stainless Steel. Radious mod will not join their ranks; its surface is too generic, its presentation too provocative and its messages too obscure. Its take on the abysmal is an illumination in one person’s despair, but a paroxysm of another’s perversion. It will remain underground – treasured by the most avant-garde among intellectuals for its edifying if horrifying insight into the fundaments of human morality. Philistines and self-proclaimed critics alike will shun Radious mod, but you can’t fault them for that. It takes wisdom to appreciate its subtleties, and courage to side with the unpopular opinion.

You got meme'd. WRE should stick with latin and ERE with Greek.

>Also is the Greaco-Roman paganism sanitation bonus worth it?

Nope since Romans have the best secular sanitation bulidings in the game. GR paganism is only used by scrubs who cannot survive early game. By mid game the fact that churches raise your public order by a shitton while not consuming any of your ever decreasing food makes christianity superior.

>>128663082
We don't know enough about how this works to judge it yet. All we know for certain is that no race can conquer and colonise every single region.

And I don't see that as a gamebreaker. It all depends on how the victory and quest conditions are handled. After all, you can't conquer any regions as the Huns in Attila, and the horde system added a new dynamic to the campaign. This may or may not do the same. I don't agree with the 'it's different so it must be bad!' approach. That's stupid, especially with so little info.

Why would CA want to introduce options to make new settlements in regions? It makes the late game casual as fuck when you have six stacks of armies, unlimited wealth and hundreds of regions to manage. Having to make the most of those regions you control to overcome whoel other factions is going to present more of a challenge than in Rome 2 or Attila.

Why are people sperging out over the occupation limitations? If done well, it sounds like a great choice that makes different factions play vastly differently, like how Huns can never settle.

Also, going by what was said in the stream, it's not as restrictive as people say it is.

Dwarfs are the most restrictive, since they can only expand by taking Dwarf holds from other dwarfs or from other races that have taken over. Their whole campaign focuses on creating a united Dwarven Empire. It actually sounds like a fun challenge, since any real economic growth will only happen after taking holds, and you have to manage to maintain a disjointed Empire.

Greenskins are beastly savages, and so can only take other Orc encampments and Dwarf hold since their basically just ornate caves .

Humans can probably take over anywere as long as they can survive there, so no holds since they would have to live underground and don't know about subterranean agriculture like Dwarfs, and the Badlands are dead regions were agriculture to support cities can't happen.

Vampire counts will probs be able to take just about everything (except maybe the badlands)

I've talked to people that act like this shit completely railroad you, even though it only restriction occupation options, and has nothing to do with faction relations or with who or when you can go to war and shit.

For Saxons, you want to research civil tech until you get a Warlord's Hold. It's a tier 3 civic building, I believe. It will give you Hearth Guards, which are the sword infantry you want to use. As for Sassykids, no advice there. Haven't played them since the update.

If you're looking for an easier faction, then I would suggest Ostrogoths or Visigoths.
>>
>>128715858
I might try one of those two then. I just want to try and get a hang of how this game works but so far it's been a uphill battle. things you think should work end up buckling on you.

>>128716661
Sassanids became much harder with the recent patch, and Saxons don't really have the best starting position. One of the Goths would be much better for ya. Maybe the Ostrogoths, since you get no penalty for occupying Roman towns and can get Roman units.

Looking back to Rome scares me existentially. A lot of people believe in the cycle of civilizations and all that, that a decadent society collapses and makes room for younger, more vigorous societies. Rome is proof that isn't the case. Rome took about 300 years to reach its decadent phase, and a further 700 to finally collapse. If you count the East as a full continuation of them, then 1700 years of degeneracy. There is no guarantee a society dies when it should, not even close.
>>
>>128721000
Are you ready for 1700 years of American degeneracy?
>>
>>128721000

You do realize that the Roman Empire went through several phases of destruction and renewal, right? It wasn't just the same system all the way through, it went through civil wars, plagues, invasions and rampant corruption, followed by periods of centralization, renewal and recovery. In several ways the Roman Empire didn't really properly 'fall' in the west as depicted, with several cities and states carrying on very much like they did under the Westies. It was just a shame that by that time the West was such a mess anyway that there was no difference between Roman and Barbarian civilization at that point anyway.

That's why it fell apart, after all: it was an empire in name only, no local dictatorship to impose order.

Total War really needs to up it on the campaign side of things. Warhammer is going to add new dimensions to the battles, but for Historical to really improve on the formula, they need to make a serious effort to make the campaign map a fun and engaging strategy game in its own right.

As of now, it'd be a 3-4/10 if it was released on its own - playable, but utterly fucking unfun and broken compared to anything else on the market. The only thing that makes us tolerate it are the battles, which are of course satisfying in and of themselves (usually), but also provide a much-needed shift of scale that no other strategy game provides, giving you much more investment in what happens to the pieces that move across the map.

The campaign doesn't have to be a 10/10 that blows Paradox games out of the water, it just has to be a 6-7/10 that, if released on its own, would stand as a well-made if dull entry into the genre. The battles and scale-shifting will be what make it stand out.

But it has to be functional and fun first. Yes, we all put way too much fucking time in TW games, but I'll never put as much time into these as I put into Paradox games until the campaigns stop feeling like an afterthought babbys-first-TBS.

rate my expert game analysis, it's so elite that I can't even make a Youtube channel for it

And post how you would improve the campaign gameplay. I want something in between Paradox games and what we see now - good diplomacy and real difference in value between regions on the map. Also, good internal mechanics, akin to CKII or even EU: Rome.

Stuff like set levy and nobleman pools (for Medieval-type settings) - in TW, that would make me have to adapt my strategies to whatever forces I can muster together, rather than building endless copies of my tailored killer stacks meant to execute the perfect hammer and anvil. And real power blocks of upset subjects, whose power bases are defined regions of the map - rebellion would actually be a thing to worry about.
>>
>>128731589
It'll probably be your hardest war of the game for very little payoff, I'd rather just keep an ally. You will win if you can move all your armies over there, though. I'd prefer aesthetic borders and take over all of Europe and Africa except for Greece, the Fertile Crescent, and leave the East to its own and leave Britannia as your own little barbar zoo.

We'll never have functioning Spanish Squares, anon. Just accept it. It gets easier over time, trust me.

I've been trying anon.

But ever since i've read about Renaissance warfare as a kid, i really want to see it in a vidya.

Welp, gotta move all my armies that massed along Baktria's borders. Man I was gonna be Operation Barbarossa but in like ancient times. Probably with similar results. I have a huge concentration of armies there, but am slowly losing a large amount of funds keeping them alive. And I don't think I can last an entire campaign deep into Asia minor. MY fingers are itching to dispose of the barbarians in Britannia. I already have a solid foothold at Camuldonion. All I need to do is to tortoise the next few turns until I get garrison and replenish my armies until I move out.

Simply epic, all the while they give you popups every time some kid needs to get a dolphin killed.

Its funny how playing strategy games has made my planning top notch. I work at an airport and my supervisors constantly come to me to figure out how to distribute manpower for the flights that are coming in.
every time I solve the issues I really do feel like a master of strategy.

What Do I do? Kill/Enslave/Release
Also, fucking Baktrians declared war on me. Operation Barbarossa it is.

>>128736186
If you intend on ever making peace with them, do release. If you don't, kill.
>>
>>128736580
I'll release then, I don't think I can finish the counter-offensive before my treasury runs dry.

So is it possible to co-op as lore sworn enemies? Orcs and Dwarves?

It is cool that they are adding in races, and each race has their factions, etc.

It just seems limiting...it would be nice if CA actually released some meaningful videos for the first time in a while.

Though I feel like they may try to avoid showing the limitations of their game when doing casts. Not good more marketing.

Naval combat in Rome 2 is still broken as fuck, I see. I just fought a battle as the Suebi where 2/3 of my fleet got stuck to the enemy's ships after boarding them. I managed to win anyways but I lost everything except my admiral and one other ship.
>>
>>128754574

I envy people who can play naval battles in rome 2, for me it's just a clusterfuck of ramming and if I play on anything harder than hard my boats are made of glass while theirs are modern battleships

naval battles require a shitload of micro

I really hope Sigvalds questline is just pointless nihilistic bullshit where Sigvald follows whatever whim he has. On the table-top dude literally suffers from Stupidity cause hes so vain that he has to inspect himself in the mirror every now and then during battle. I really hope that is reflected in the game.

That would be amazing. I reckon Kholek's quests will be fun too, he seems like the most interesting LL battle wise.

>Hi all - just to mention, it's not 'railroad', it's still sandbox, it's not what the doomsayers are foretelling. Ian, the Game Director, is writing us a blog around the design for next week. You'll get plenty of opportunity to judge yet.

What do you guys think?

What a loaded question none of these cuck-haters in /twg/ think

who the fuck would think that you can't raze settlements you can occupy?
