    Re: Call me crazy, I like the sieges.

    That's the point, the siege assaults in TW is simulating the costly direct assault on the walls with tower/ladders. You want accurate sieges? That's what clicking end turn on the campaign map is...

    Re: Call me crazy, I like the sieges.

    Outside sure, but inside? The city is lost when the enemy gets inside the wall, the "combat" that happens inside cities are moping up and looting.

    The rich get richer, once a faction's agents get ahead on XP, it's hard to catch up. In my campaign I aggressively used my agent and stayed ahead of the AI through out (on normal difficulty.) I am...

    Have you tried just leaving it running? Jiggling the handle does actually work for some. It's trying to varify your game and/or building pixel shaders.

    Re: TW:WH to use Denuvo

    Wanna bet if there will be mods for warhammer within a month of release? I don't know why you think unit stats files would be locked, even if Denuvo does prevent tempering of more than just the exe.

    Re: chaos gameplay versus empire!

    Human, Dwarfs and Orcs cannot have the same animation, they have different skeleton. Chaos and Empire units do share human skeleton and can use the same animations.
  10. Re: Should dwarf settlements/karaks have the same defensive strength/layout as the rest?

    You can balance it how you like on the campaign map but there is a hard limit of 20/40 units in an army. A full stack might be 10 times more expensive than a green skin full stack, but unit for unit,...
  11. Re: Should dwarf settlements/karaks have the same defensive strength/layout as the rest?

    The Dwarfs already have a huge advantage in defence unit wise. Extra bonus would be OP.
  12. Re: Should dwarf settlements/karaks have the same defensive strength/layout as the rest?

    Gameplay wise, it's better if dwarf settlements have the same defensive strength/layout as the rest. Lore wise, dwarf settlements should be much harder to attack than an orc settlement.

    Those are the worse kind of DLCs for me. Changing core mechanism makes them feel mandatory, where as extra content or cosmetic changes feels optional.

    Sure, we ought not expect new units, but gameplay mods that create the desired "feel" like slowing down combat or increasing mass would be just fine.

    Why would you be without the ability to mode the game? No mod support and no modding are two very different things.


    A more expensive game does not imply a worse game.
