    That's a good one. I suppose you pre-order everything too. The brainwashing goes deeeep.

    People like you are what are holding back fair games and independence for the common person.

    You want to talk about prices? here in Australia the base game was $99, then $120 for deluxe edition with greeks, then $170 for collectors edition.
    Last time i brought shogun 2 collectors edition and felt completely ripped off, Us Australians still get ripped of by steam on every DLC.

    Even ing BF4 premium cost me like $150 bucks but at least that turned out a better deal than Rome 2, they at least added content to bf4.

    In future why don't you just go to a 3rd party steam code site? I remember seeing someone getting rome and all the DLCs at that point for like 20 US dollars on a deal. Over here on ebay the base game is £16.

    You'll easily be be able to check if they are reputable and legit.

    Default Re: Selection Bug??? !!!NO!!!!

    I am so frustrated by a bug relating to unit selection that makes battles almost uncontrollable.
    Every Total War player knows that the way to select more than ONE unit is to drag a square ove mutiple units - then all units the square covers (either entirely or partially) become selected. However, lately I was plagued by the glitch that whenver I drag a square, the units displayed as selected not longer correspond to the coverage of the square but appear completely random!! More often than not units miles away from the square get selected while units most certainly inside the square (aka. the one I actually intend to select) remain unselected. Sometimes I have to repeat the same motion five to six times to finally get the proper result.
    As a consequence I now can only do selection by clicking directly upon a unit, which means to give command unit by unit - imagine you have an army of 40 units!
    I haven't played the game for quite a few month. I couldn't recall such a problem the last time I played. I turned off all my mods and verified the game's integrity, yet even with a perfect vanilla version, this bizarre buzz-killer stays on.
    Does anyone else experience the same thing? Any suggetion what has happened and how to solve it? This affliction is really intolerable - millions of thanks for anyone who care to offer a clue!!

    Use hotkeyed unit groups. I usually only use drag boxes around units during the deployment stage to set up grouped formations.

    Default Still finding the game pretty boring

    I've really tried to give Rome 2 another chance with the Imperator Augustus update, but I am still finding it generally boring. It's definitely improved since the last time I played it, no doubt about that. However, most of the time I'm not doing anything but waiting for my armies to move across the huge lansdcape to capture empty cities and click end turn. The constant character upgrades I have to choose almost every turn really gets on my nerves and so does the constant building/rebuilding of cities to deal with the food/public order mechanics. I rarely have an encounter with an enemy army in the field and most battles I autoresolve because they wouldn't be very interesting battles to manually control anyway. Does anyone else feel this way too?

    since empire i do not like the total war games however ı bought all of them.

    me too boring and i know the main reason.main reason is the unit variety.many factions shares many same units.each faction should ve unique units of own.

    I must admit that there is something wrong with checking yet another little character trait increase every single turn. I think what would be better is to have the game save these little trait increases until you have about 5 or 10 of them (5 or 10 turns later) and then allow the Player to allocate them.

    Pretty boring? It is boring. Thx for mods that give a little more flavor but they can do only so mutch and since there are no real tools out yet we have to wait for a more immersive campaign.

    True, patching might have fixed the technical aspects of the game, but it still remains without immersion, without a deeper strategic layer, without interesting mechanics... Never has building an empire been so tedious and downright boring...

    But I can't even do proper drag-grouping during the deployment stage due to the problem I explained above. Any idea what could be the cause?

    Default Re: Official TW: Rome II Complaint Thread

    so another Total War game announced today. and once again we get a trailer that shows us absolutely nothing about the game. I think it goes without saying that no one should preorder it but i think it should be skipped all together. CA is going to keep going down this road until they have a financial failure. Rome 2 by any other standards was a flop, but thanks to their deceit it was still a financial success. Let's not fall for that again. If they actually loose money on a title they will rethink their strategy and maybe get back to the roots of the total war series. Or at least be more honest with with customers about what they are doing.

    Default I hate my self when I am right! Rome II will remain unfinished!

    I the last couple of months , many of our fellows in this site wondered what would be the next TW game.
    Back then I wrote that CA would create a game based on Rome II , ussing all the work have done for RII to make more profit with less efforts.
    Everything CA needed was already created for Rome II and only few additions would be nesesary. Additions with new skins, few new animations etc.
    That IS NOT the worst part though.... What will follow is what consirns me.
    CA realised that Rome II was a huge failure of it and all efforts to make the game enjoyable cost huge ammount of money....
    So we will have a standalone version of Rome II that will be actually the result of the 15 patches of RII evolution THAT WE PAID for!!!!!!!!!
    I hope that once Iwill be wrong but REMEMBER THIS:
    ROME 2 is officialy abandoned by CA with the excuse of developing the new game.
    So...we paid for a good game, CA tricked us and when it was too close to fix the damn game , CA actually says to us "pay for the actuall fixing under the title of a new TW game"!!!!!!!!
    But ...will the new TW game be a non troubled RII???
    Will it be better??
    NO
    How do I know that???
    Here is my patch 15 observations of Rome II and the needed fixes for the game to reach the same level of Rome I that is a 11 years OLD game!

    Why do I think that CA will abandon Rome II?
    Take a realy good look of the new TW game.
    The same rediculus features with unwalled cities, with the limited building slots and many other features will be REPEATED in the new TW game!!!!
    I wonder WHAT IS THE POINT OF BUYING the new TW game WHEN IT will follow the same unfixed mechanism of ROME II that we all got sick of it for a year now?????????
    WHY we must buy the new TW game when RII mods -with the same stupid engine of RII- will be free??????????
    I hate being right...But remember that the expansion is the tomp stone of Rome II game. No matter what CA developers state the last month or better despite of their SILENCE!
    So...WE paid more than 100 euros for a game and its DLCs to find our selves with an UNFINISHED game that CA will silently REFUSE to complete saying the the development of the expansion requires alot of human and material resourses!!!!!!!!

    I hope that CA will prove me wrong but I doupt it!!!!!!!!!!

    everyone who bought Rome 2 and all of its dlc did. If you go buy it all right now it costs right at $123 or 97Ä (that is the price in american dollars converted i didn't take the time to check actual price in euros for each release). and there is still another year of dlc to come they are only halfway done.
    Atilla was just announced it will be roughly one year away and they said at release for Rome II that they planned to give patches and dlc for it for 2 years.
    oh and you can double that price for the collectors edition.

    Default Re: I hate my self when I am right! Rome II will remain unfinished!

    I said a few months ago that the EE update would be the final update for Rome II. It was clear to see.

    The game is shallow and pointless post 50 turns. The game will most likely remain as it is now.

    I won't be pre ordering Attila, not by any means. I'll keep my thirty quid thanks.
    This is my original review for Rome II, posted in October 2013.

    Rome II: Totally Casual.

    Streamlined features, zero diplomacy, no family tree, lack of character progression, magical transports, complete lack of battle, siege and campaign AI, blob style fighting formations, 3minute battles, magical fire burning torches, zero seasons, 1 turn per year, awful performance on high end systems, monotonous and incredibly tedious campaign,

    A year later, sadly, not much has changed.

    Exactly...1st CA must prove that no matter what , our money were NOT wasted by trusting the company!
    ONLY then we must THINK to buy the next TW game!
    CA must LEARN to RESPECT people's money!
