    I think what pissed me off more was after downloading the anti-cheat mod that turned off the convert peasants into samurai was that the AI just only built one army and didn't put up a fight at all.

    The biggest AI fuck up of all time though was with their adding on of the Hero Unit DLC as now with that on the AI just immediately rushes cavalry no matter what because the 3 cav heroes are so fucking ridiculously strong compared to other units you get and it only takes 15 turns to tech up. Just this mad dash that has no pay off because the auto resolve usually kill them instantly.

    Couldn't find this in the patch notes but from what I can tell some of the wonders have been buffed significantly which is a godsend as most were shit. Also the bonus for holding Baktria is shit as well, fucking rome gets more recruitment and bonus to all wealth, haven't conquered pergamon so I have no idea what they get, Pella gets industry buffs, and Carthage gets commerce buffs.

    I've told myself that so many times. So many times. I say to myself "I'm going to pack my bags, grab the kids, and leave this disgusting, incompetent, drunken brute of a developer forever". And it never happens. I just dry my tears, put on a brave face for the neighbors, install a mod, and make the best of it.

    EB II crashes and freezes too frequently for me to play :negative:

    I've being replaying the MOS Third Age mod compilation instead. Anything to avoid downloading Rome II Emperor edition only to discover that, in all probability, the siege AI is still hopelessly broken.

    The building changes was needed. for the first time I played long enough to get to the higher tier buildings, but even with just temples and farms I hesitate building them. Farms and temples on their own almost take each other out with their penalties.

    here is a gem though:

    Oh, so just for the AI then.

    How did one guy once put it.... "You have a brain, the AI cheats". I think it was an AI programmer :M

    A Total War Warhammer wouldn't even be legal. Merging two IP's together with different owners? Nah.

    Yeah, it'll be a standalone expansion. Looks related to BSB barbarian factions. The Warhammer deal was only signed a couple of years ago, iirc. I wouldn't expect anything to come out of it for a while.

    It's simply a matter of licensing the setting.

    Looks like we're finally getting another Peloponnesian War game! TOTAL WAR: WRATH OF SPARTA.

    http://store.steampowered.com/app/327280/

    Does anybody know anything about this? I will actually buy this once Rome 2 goes on sale again, and only because I love the theme/setting.

    After 16 patches, the game is playable, bought Rome 2 dirty cheap on the last Steam sale and most of the issues that made the game unplayable are fixed, still worse than Shogun 2 and nowhere near the original Rome but isn't an abortion of a game anymore . If you wanna buy it, buy it on a sale because I have a feeling this DLC will just re use assets of the campaign like crazy.

    So I recently acquired this game, and I was wondering...Rome and Carthage are the only two factions where you can pick individual houses within, presumably with specific gameplay mechanics that go along with that. Am I missing much by playing as one of the other factions? I was considering starting as an eastern faction, possibly the Seleucids. But if not as much attention was given to the other factions as Rome and Carthage (something I'm suspecting), I may not. Is this true?
