    Anyone with an IQ above 105 would not bear the braindead total war AI for more than 3 play sessions.

    Regardless, MP never been the meat of TW games, in fact I don't know anyone that played it.

    As for the AI, could be said about almost every single strategy game.

    It's not the meat as in marketing meat. It's the meat as in the only thing of worth in the game.

    That's true. I would never play against the AI in any RTS unless it's a rigidly scripted campaign for fun.

    Empire and Napoleon were a blast in multiplayer if you played it with the right people as some serious house ruling were needed to balance out the game.

    I never understood how anything worked in Napoleon. Cavalry would die in seconds, artillery was better left at spawn. If the enemy was dumb enough to move his artillery to a better position, you could snipe it then shoot his men with the remaining ammunition. Then the rest of the game was about moving your line just right at the tip of the red circles.

    They still have the PC gamer hack on board?

    I can't stomach this guy. He was the most oblivious marketeer I've ever seen.

    As much as I love this model (And I never bought the newer ones cause I'm not stupid) It's kinda stupid that the main body is made out of wood.

    Typically a stuff in the front of the cannon is what's burning.

    Thanks smart ass I know that. But if you stand around highly flammable liquid or gas I'm sure you want steel between you and that and not wood. Also it's dwarves we're talking about not fucking wood elves.

    Still I like the model. The newer one is just more logical and dwarf like can't fault them for that.

    It's not even close to release or even the last phases of development and they are already charging for a fully designed major DLC? :lol:

    That's a new low. Lower than season's pass.

    Not just that, but the DLC-only faction is one of the three most iconic ones next to the empire and orcs. Could've lived with something like Athel Loren or Skaven becoming DLC only but chaos? That just screams money-grab.

    They still don't understand no one playing Total War gives a fuck about their cinematic pretensions. If you make a total war trailer make it about an army clashing with another because that's what the game is about. Not a horror emotional blockbuster.

    This is the most uninteresting upcoming game I've ever seen.

    Actually, I think it is the most popular, at least according to player repartition in Warhammer : Age of Reckoning, there were far more players playing Destruction than Empire, and many of them played a chaos sorcerer or chosen.
    The worst part is that it is not even surprising anymore from them. They make Paradox DLC mania look good.

    Chaos is lame anyway, who the fuck wants yet another Chaos Incursion Ultimate Edgedrama Apocalypse campaign? Should've ditched it from the game entirely.
