  1. Re: Imaginary strengths of Late Roman army vs reality

    Boggles my mind how hostile and emotional people get on this forum when arguing about history. Honestly, some of you people need to calm down and stop posting essays/insulting others just because...
  2. Siege AI/pathfinding most definitely needs addressing

    A big concern of mine prior to release was that we were going to see issues with AI pathfinding in siege battles, and lo and behold time has proven me wise.

    It honestly feels like every other, if...
  3. Multiplayer campaign with friend; why are our battles so slow (1/2 sped almost all the time)

    As the title says, my friend and I have been having really slow battles. Even when the game is sped up it usually slows right back down, and judging from the unit speed and the time it takes for a...
  4. Re: Am I the only one who becomes nostalgic from playing Attila?

    As much as I loved BI (my favourite vanilla TW prior to Attila) I can't begin to imagine how you guys can think this. Get a mod to change the WRE/ERE symbols and Attila is better in just about every...
  5. Re: UPDATE: Torches Where we're going we don't need torches!

    I'm having a lot of fun but am eagerly looking forward to the update - I've found a few bugs, or strange occurences in the AI behaviour both in campaign and battle, so hopefully this goes some way to...
  6. Re: Your top 5 tactics for building a healthy economy

    My mind's still pretty blown trying to think about how to organise provinces properly

    - Each province needs to be in a food surplus, since a lack of food in a province results in a loss of cash...
  7. Re: Does the Attila Main Menu foreshadow the next game in the franchise?

    To be honest this seems like reading into it too much. I always took the menu screen of M2 to be just what it was - Medieval soldiers marching to war. Is there anything that gives away their Crusader...

    Re: WRE - what's your settlment "build?"

    That's exactly what I was after - not a specific "lvl 3 barracks + lvl 4 forum is best," just an idea of how to structure things.

    When you say that you focus on farming in fertile regions, does...
  9. Re: How to Taxes: A Five Minute Guide to Income in Attila Total War

    That told me most/all of what I already knew, but it's great to see it in such a well laid out and funny vid.

    As an aside, is there anything that can be done to lower corruption as the WRE? I...

    Re: Playing as Western Roman Empire help?

    I've opted to hold onto my territories, and it's actually served me pretty well, since it's allowed me to seriously damage/wipe out entire factions. I've had better P.O. than compared to abandoning...

    WRE - what's your settlment "build?"

    Attila's got a far, far broader range of buildings to choose from as the WRE, and while the change is welcome it's also quite daunting, especially with the need to have all your provinces in a food...
  12. Re: Is Attila the least historical game since Medieval II (or even Rome I vanilla?)

    What evidence backs this, or what logic leads you to conclude this? Zeonic posted results from a study which, following its finding which included the fact that men carry more muscle, and the muscle...
  13. Re: Is Attila the least historical game since Medieval II (or even Rome I vanilla?)

    The need for women to have children (and childbirth already being something with a high mortality rate) I agree with. To the bold, no. If anything, men and women both being regularly active and thus...

  15. Re: Does Attila lack sufficient Historical DEPTH? Compared to RTW:BI

    I can't agree with this at all, and BI was one of my favourite, if not my favourite, vanilla TW campaign

    In BI there were only a few horde/barbarian factions; you could overcome them in a few...
  16. The towers and walls of Eboracum and Sirmium, or why I'm none too pleased with siege escalation

    What's this, two thread by Aenima in the same day complaining about Attila? Yeah, true, but I'm still enjoying the game, so this isn't me whining about the game and why I don't like it, simply...

  20. Re: Three questions about Attila: Can you answer?

    Yes, armies instantly transport in navies. They're terrible at naval combat though; a unit of 48 marines is able to board and slaughter a 120-man Saxon general's unit when at sea. His soldiers are...

    Why are garrisons so weak?

    Something that really strikes me when playing as the WRE is just how weak the garrisons are. The majority of settlements seem to only have a garrison of 4 units (1 Limitanei/Comitatensis, 1 cohors, 1...
  23. Advice for province management as WRE in Attila? Food, public order, etc

    Has anyone gotten to grips with the province and public order system in this game? I'm pretty sure that I read that a shortage of food in a province actually leads to bad public order there, even if...
