  1. Re: Age of Charlemagne - Difficulties with Asturias Campaign

    ThroB is definitely better in that you have more methods of waging war aside from stack whacking. I can't say I have fully explored the possibilities yet since I'm still waiting for the blood DLC to...
  2. Re: Age of Charlemagne - Difficulties with Asturias Campaign

    Yeah, a few of the campaigns in AoC can go pear-shaped very quickly. Asturias is really tricky due to the problems mentioned in OP's post, and another is Mercia (or wessex?) where you get stomped by...

    It has increasingly felt like that for me since the realisation that ThroB was quite arid and sorely missing key features. This feeling was accentuated by the 3k gameplay reveal. It just was so stale...
  10. Sticky: Re: New Historical total war era - Total War: Three Kingdoms!

    Right, no problems there. That's fine and interesting by itself, and of course a major component of the setting. It wouldn't be complete without it. However, it isn't compelling enough by itself to...

    Let's say for argument's sake that it is 'historical'. At first glance it appears very much as 'top down' history, with big leaders and oversized personalities driving the historical narrative. With...

    I know you've been looking forward to this title, Intranetuser. I feel bad for you. I hope modders are able to salvage something from the wreckage.

    It will be after they release the assembly kit, likely to be at the same time as the Blood DLC in July.
