it's a simple case of an group of people (Creative Assembly) not sharing the same view as an individual.
Not hate crime or anything else.
CA want to make a strategy game appeal to the minority of gamer's which want fast paced action, whilst Darth wants to redesign a game with reality, as if playing against another player, implementing as much detail as possible, which is a very acute view shared not by the minority.
Darth should continue with his work and stop appealing towards CA for attention, Darth your line of work deserves its own ray of sun light and i believe you shouldn't even be associating your work with CA.
I buy my Total war games so i can install Darthmod all but Rome Total war i have Darthmod installed. i wont play vanilla.
Yes im putting money into CA pockets for the benefit of them only and not you but if you were to set up a donation page i would happily not with a blink of an eye donate to your cause to continue to create these master pieces.
The question shouldn't be should i continue with out CA's support?
it is i will continue to make my mods but what will i do to ensure i am able to?
Wake up Darth, you have thousands of supporters and followers, why are you so intent on impressing a small fraction that don't follow you?
What will you benefit other than getting (eventually with persistence) a job with CA and then to be told well this is how we do our things here at CA....So sorry you wont be able to continue doing what you enjoy doing.
