  1. How to make Attila a more immersive game? More conspiracy features perhaps?

    It seems that CA has improved the immersion of the franchise in ATW compared to Rome 2. Although I do find that the game itself has very little immersion features once you manage to save your empire....
  2. A more "historical" starting army for the Romans?

    One thing I dislike about vanilla Total war is CA might have nerfed the Romans too much to the extend it doesn't really reflect the conditions of the time period of the starting campaign. The Empire...

    Re: Histography and Total War Attila

    I wish the game design team spend more time with Historians in regards to game design itself, letting history inform us what kind of game we can design as opposed to trying to fit a game into some...

    There needs to be some sort of mechanism that allows you to change dynasty. If not, you are going to be playing as a single dynasty ruling for all of eternity. Which is boring.
