    I'm confused about the battle system. It's real-time but essentially just watching the armies fight according to pre-set battle plans, right?

    Fuck games set in China. Not only all the people look the same, they are called the same. How are you supposed to tell people called "Lu Bu", "Liu Beu", "Lao Bo" and shit apart? Fucking hivemind.

    I am confused too, I think the system is a classic wargame: adjacent tiles. The "battle" screens show hex map more closely (without grid) where only fight the units in contact with the enemy units.

    Personally, I distinguish between different Chinese people by the ways that they laugh at me when I want to get some KFC :negative:

    Looks like a mash-up of Civ V with Rome 2. The battle description part almost makes me think of Dominions.

    And some Sid Meier's Gettysburg in there as well. Also reminds me somewhat of the Hegemony games. Interesting mashup.

    Looks overambitious. Will probably turn out like the games that sounded much cooler than actually played.

    Busy farming WoW gold?

    Seriously, there's a huge array of such games available in Chinese/Korean, but they're generally not ported to english.
    The games tend to have a popularity problem in the western world - basically because of what mondblut said, I guess.

    And don't forget Cao Cao.

    I still remember how I asked about name of literal work made by Cao Cao, and people were absolutely clueless.

    It was probably called "Work work".

    ...really, how do they even tell apart themselves? Imagine if all english characters were called "John Dean", "Jim Donn" and "Joe Dunne".

    The "u" in Lu Bu is different than the "u" in "Liu Bei".
    In fact it's Lü Bu.
    Using US keyboard, that would be Lv Bu.
    Supposedly it's going to be LYU BU on your passport though, because of LAW!
    Since these are transcribed in Pinyin, each occurrence of the letters indicate vastely distinct pronunciation.
    Besides they all (grown-up men and feminists) have courtesy name, which is used in daily life instead, e.g. Mengde for Caocao, Fengxian for Lv Bu, Xuande for Liu bei.
    Then you can combine the courtesy name with family name for another version of full name when needed, e.g. Liu Xuande, Lv Fengxian.

    Except that human brain is hardwired to mostly recognize consonants. A plenty of writing systems exclude vowels altogether. They could just as well be all named "LB".

    Interesting (and I see why it happened, lol). Too bad we don't get these in RTK games and the like, having to deal with only a hivemind of LBs. :lol:

    Of course we get them. Well, our own version of them anyway.
    At least in the old KOEI games, I always assigned courtesy names. So, instead of Liu Bei, it'd be "Bald dude with mustache"...

    OI~ If you insist on being racist, at least dont be an ignorant douchebag.

    FYI gooks are Vietnamese, and chinks are Chinese. We are not the same. For onething, chinks can and will exploit the fuck out of gooks, not vice versa.

    Mistake like this fall right down to the level of blacks versus dark Latinos.

    Is it more or less offensive to use the wrong offensive slang?
