  1. Re: Realism vs Fun in total war (you cant have it both ways)

    True. I remember the days of playing EB and dreading whether I'd have to fight the Grey Death or Yellow Fever in the East, but it was always great to see one of the Hellenistic factions there reign...
  2. Re: Realism vs Fun in total war (you cant have it both ways)

    Immersion, immersion, immersion.

    For me that's where the biggest issue with any TW game comes down to. And it's often to the ahistorical way that things play out. I'm not saying that, as the WRE,...

    Noob question for Fall of the Eagles

    Hi guys, as someone who stumbled across this mod I have to say I love what I see; the amended roster, the unit cards, it's all great stuff. Looking forward to seeing what else develops with this...

    Re: Age of Charlemagne - Review and Impressions.

    So far I've actually been enjoying it but I've only had it for one day and I find I often like TW games on release and soon find the lack of depth/immersion afterwards.

    In any case I can say that...
  5. Re: Why are foederati spears more expensive than Roman spearmen?

    How many foederati are even in the WRE roster? At the moment the only ones I can genuinely think of are foederati spears and elite skirmishers. The foederati spears are higher level but worse quality...
  6. Why are foederati spears more expensive than Roman spearmen?

    Compared to comitatenses they have javelins, higher charge damage and slightly more morale but they have a significantly worse armour rating, with their armour defence being less than half of the...

    Re: Patch notes - Age of Charlemagne

    Thank god for the cav nerf, they were far too OP. I can't imagine what it would be like to play as an infantry faction that can't form a shieldwall vs faction fielding lots of heavy cav and lancers.

  12. What does this game need to make the WRE campaign more challenging and immersive?

  13. Re: My brief review of TW Attila and why it was a hollow experience

    Interesting. I play H/M but I generally find it to be a breeze past a certain point. That said my game is modded (no agents to avoid spam, no sacking or raising except for nomads and no liberating)...
  14. Re: My brief review of TW Attila and why it was a hollow experience

    Who are you playing as? Difficulty? I'm generally finding the WRE to be a cake-walk. After a few dozen turns I always find it pretty damn easy, if I'm honest. Hordes are generally easy to wipe out...
  15. Re: I think about playing Total War games more than I play them.

    I think it's a blend of things; the games themselves having become less original, as RGA pointed out, but also the fact that they HAVE become less immersive. I honestly feel that Attila's UI, right...
  16. Re: My brief review of TW Attila and why it was a hollow experience

    Hard campaign, medium battle for me. Battle difficulty being medium because levies defeating my experienced troops and naval ships always being beaten by enemy transports is just pointlessly annoying.
  17. Re: My brief review of TW Attila and why it was a hollow experience

    This is pretty much exactly how I feel although I don't feel the beginning is quite that difficult; believe it or not I never had the Huns declare war on me till well after Attila was born.

    Re: WRE: Roman Paganism v Latin Christianity

    What edicts does Paganism grant the WRE vs Christian edicts? The -5% corruption edict is brilliant for making more money but I'd be interested to hear what the WRE gets as a pagan state instead.
