Love what you do, but damn it fell off for me. I have over a thousand hours put in between Empire and Napoleon. Not ranked your highest? That is ok. I realize you are not here to cater to my desires but you do have a forum so here we go. I stayed with the franchise since Rome I and loved it. Things changed, things were different and more or less complicated. Awesome! When did we hit the wall? The global aspect was awesome, but people did not like micro-managing multiple theaters? YET in Rome II you micromanage what your stupid character likes to eat. Yes that is exaggerated, but who gives a damn about their personality traits? Then Warhammer came out, let's jump on the World of Warcraft/Harry Potter genre to get some cash. Really? This was supposed to grow and be more and more complex. Not tab warfare like Europa Universalis because this title/franchise had more than that. It had all of that good with none of the boring bad of a non-existent live action bit. But lo here we are. I am happy to see a new theatre being introduced like China, but will it continue being Hocus Pocus and just new skins? If I can pick up any new title from y'all and conquer it by just saving money and raising generic non strategic armies something is wrong.
Finally that last statement brings us to the next point. Regarding the live action strategy. No more war of attrition. I do not want a game where more numbers means victory. Too often in this franchise I find that it all comes down to a select all units and right click here then rinse and repeat. Love this franchise more than any other, but damn I want a challenge.
Most important part. You have begun introducing multiplayer. Why is this not retroactive? Some die-hard fans are willing to do anything to play multiplayer but on a title that has since past. Many, I'm sure, are willing to play past titles and PAY MONEY to get the option to multiplayer on those titles. Just a thought if you are money hungry. (Warhammer)
Love you all, keep up the work.
