    Re: The Popularity of Three Kingdoms

    The problem with comparing "old players" to now is that people move onto other pursuits, other platforms, they get old, have children, etc. The Steamcharts numbers are very high with this game and...

    F1 command brings up a contextual menu. But it's going to take a while to get familiar with menus and how systems work.

    The thing about forced march is it isn't, it's called march. I think the best way to handle this is to continue to allow the army in march stance to retreat, but make it a shorter distance than...

  9. Sticky: Re: New Historical total war era - Total War: Three Kingdoms!

    So true. Retinues just don't make it interesting imo and heroes are a sad joke. I'm hoping CA goes to the 19th Century next and introduces a new system allowing us to manage armies in the tens of...
  10. Sticky: Re: New Historical total war era - Total War: Three Kingdoms!

    The diplomacy system alone makes this game a big step forward for Total War. It's very fluid, worth engaging on almost every turn. I just wish there was a way to link the warlord's name to their...
