    3 Kingdoms again shines there. The autoresolve is fairly accurate, battles between armies of similar strength occur more often and it often behoves the player to manually resolve the bigger ones just to preserve their units a bit more.

    E: The ice on the bear artillery looks stupid.

    The implication was that they use the lessons learned from 3K to make Wawa better... But I don't see that happening.

    :yawn: pretty bad gameplay reveal. It'll probably be decent fun to play and more variety in mission types is good but also not what I care about. What I want to know is siege rework, campaign rework and that type of thing.

    No, they are from the rpg supplement about Kislev:

    I see instead that they went the space wolf route by inserting bears everywhere, they should have used source material from the aforomentioned supplement and from something rotten in kislev.

    Then there'd be at least 6 different versions of em with different weapons and guns.

    I heard even the siege battles in troy sucked so it's hard to be optimistic about this thing.

    I heard Games Workshop was the one who designed the units for Kislev, not a fan of some design choices.
    Like, they're going out of their way to add some icy magic bits in whatever places thay can stick them. Looks terrible on those elite winged lancers.
    Patriarch was a welcome surprise. Looks pravoslavno:obviously:

    Gameplay looked fine to me, but overall i am not impressed. I was hoping that they will show more.

    Ah so CA’s creative team strikes again. I can hardly forget their previous addition to the lore: Cylostra or whatever her name was.

    Have the CA developpers played too many tower defence games or that shitty looking W40k mobile game Youtube keeps spamming me with?

    In the full stream there's a cringy faux-interview with one of the lead designers, and he says something like "we wanted to stay true to the fans of the first two blah blah but also surprise blah blah blah blah blah" which has always been PR-speak for "we're chasing the latest fad and we know you won't like it".

    The thing is, between woke GW and woke CA it's honestly surprising how well the minor factions were represented. Even if they love to insert wahmen into them whenever possible. But those had some representation in the lore beforehand. I shudder to think what Cathay will be like.

    They tried to pander to Chyna with 3K and then got mega-asshurt when Chinese started modding them.

    Allowing women into any creative community is always a mistake. They only make things worse.

    Community manager is one of the few career paths in the games industry for gender studies majors (and other people with no talent or useful education).

    What fad? They’ve already had quest battles similar to this in WH2. The theme of Kislev is defending against relentless chaos invasions, I’m not really surprised that this is what they came up with to represent it.
