    Sartosa/Vampire Coast + Probably some Vortex mechanics where you have to collect treasure from across the map.

    Looks fun, but my hype is at kinda meh right now. Would have loved to see Southern Realms instead to be honest.
    Also nice to see CA is at least capable to do a modders work and implemented 'naval' battles.
    Hopefully the Vampire coast gets a system similar to Norsca when it comes to taking territory. Would be kind of weird to have pirate zombies taking settlements in the middle of the badlands or dwarf holds up in the mountains.

    Is that a bug or did you disable everything in the graphics options?

    Also zoomed out beyond the vanilla camera height, I think. Regardless he's correct - all Warhammer trailers are "in-engine" which means they use far superior lighting and postprocessing effects and also use the original (high poly) art assets for everything.

    Yeah why doesn't a strategy game with regularly over 4k and possibly over 6k units in a small map at any given time have as high polygons, big textures and detailed backgrounds as a trailer. I have my timetravelling quantum PC ready just to play with those graphics.

    Why are they designing a game that regularly has 4-6k units on a map with the strategic depth of a puddle of piss?

    Because they care about graphics more than strategy
    Because people will pay for graphics (br0 chek out dis game have bunch o doodz fighitng SIIIICK) but they won't pay for strategy
    But the graphics suck ass

    So their main selling point is bullshit

    You don't do strategy in a battle map. It's called tactics. There is also not such a dilemma between graphics and strategy. It's a fairly decent in tactical depth, AI could be a lot better but it's not terrible. Also yes people who play a game for big battles want to see battles that are pleasing to look at.

    If you are mainly for strategy I'd suggest you play paradox games instead.

    WH I - charge was additive.
    WH II - charge was multiplicative.
    WH I - some low end units that were somewhat decent at charge nearly mattered.
    WH II - some low end units simply splashed on enemies even when they attacked from behind.
    WH I - chaos burned stuff and created wasteland. Countries send armies to attack Chaos even from far away.
    WH II - chaos burns stuff, which is recolonized instantly. Countries are sending armies to colonize from far away and are ignoring chaos armies.

    Shogun 2 had some tactics and morale, this is too much multiplayer optimized.

    Pretty cool, she's completely new with no prior lore. Hopefully this opens the content floodgates.
