    Re: the game is so :wub: i went back to Medieval 2

    It only is if you never played any other decent strategy game to compare it with.

    I also played a campaign with the latest update, and quit 25% in. Being an achievement whore and completionist,...

    Re: ''Mod out or not play'' controversy

    I dont mind female generals at all. They are just stupidly overrepresented, just another sign that CA just frolicks about and likes the verb "playtest" removed from the dictionary. But they are like...

    Re: An interesting opinion.

    I find the "but the AI has always been bad" a flawed argument. The thing that bothers me the most is that in 5 years of Rome 2, the AI hasnt made a single step forward. If you introduce features the...

    Re: An interesting opinion.

    If the vanilla game was any decent and still not outright broken, I didnt need a buttload of mods. Ever considered that? I dont use mods for EL, ES2, EU4, CK2, and only UI mods for Xcom 2 (and a...

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

    There is a difference between a few imagined (but still possible) units in the game, and whole mechanics (like duelling generals or the way sieges are being conducted) being ahistorical.

    The base...
  18. Sticky: Re: New Historical total war era - Total War: Three Kingdoms!
