    Looking forward to Achilles, Diomedes and Ajax wearing prestigeous, historically accurate, bronze Mycenaean armor.

    It's good game, and when you have cold beer near you playing desk it is very good game.

    Reusing hoplite assets from Rome 2 and transfering them to Three Kingdoms engine thus justifying the existence of hero units
    Genius to say the least

    This is a stupid idea because everyone knows CA's AI can't seige properly. Troy wins against the Greeks because the Greeks got stuck on wall geo and can't pathfind out of collision.
    They should have just focused on a campaign orientated towards more pitched battles like Alexander.

    I was hoping they reuse shogun 2 assets and made russo-japanese war. Greeks are all gays and kiddy fiddlers. Decline.

    Going by Thrones of Britannia it seems like minimum effort is the name of the game for Saga titles. I like the idea of localized campaigns where you go into deeper detail, but they made some really odd choices in ToB. At least it resulted in Rome 2 and Attila seeing some new updates/content so something good came out of it.

    You're assuming that CA knows how to put in localised damage into their game instead of the 0-100 health bar.

    I don't even care what next TW game setting is, just give me an AI that has more than two or three tactics in total and cannot be utterly destroyed by simple flanking every single time.
    How to win in a TW game:
    1. hide cavalry in forest or behind a hill or something
    2. wait for enemy to attack (or do it yourself). Infantry vs infantry, enemy cavalry will charge the spearmen you placed on the flanks because you knew it was coming, etc. The important thing is enemy units are tied up in combat
    3. take your hidden cavalry and use it to kill enemy general with it (he always stays back), then proceed to stomp through enemy backlines
    4. massacre the routing enemies

    They rebranded Fall of the Samurai standalone expansion for Shogun: Total War as a Total War Saga game. OK.

    I wonder if they stick with history or with Homer.

    I afraid we get hellenistic hoplites, hundred meters walls and super- saiyan Achilles.

    I would also love to see Aeneas, the guy who led the trojans to found Rome, it is going to be awesome.

    Most of Trojan war was about Greeks raiding Trojan allies and villages in Troad in true :obviously: way.

    They'll stick with Homer Simpson's level of historical knowledge.
