    Even if I were not boycotting all non-Warhammer Total War games until the trilogy concludes, there's no way I'd purchase 3K on the information available.

    There are now more bad Total War games than there are good ones and the last one was almost nine years ago. CA have simply forgotten what made the series special.

    Well as a resume , we can’t complain or express our opinion , anything that won’t be saying how beautiful and great CA is ,will be closed in forum.Great again don’t worry administrators I won’t complain again and I won’t express my opinion ( nice censure) .

    Can understand how you feel. Ca tends to be a little arrogant towards it’s community especially on this title. Tob and Rome was a different cup of tea. Really liked the personal approach from jack lusted for example on thrones.

    Don’t feel any sympathy for the communication around this title. But it get’s repetitive. So better to focus on things that give postive energy 😉
    Totally indeed , now forward I’ll spend my time on searching paradox games and wait for the final release of three kingdoms despite of being fair or not how the game is widely or closely shown to community. In the end I’ve realised that towardis marketing strategies costumers have little to do about it.
    Don’t pre order is an option I use. Is bad for their cash flow among others 😉If they start taking their fans seriously it’s a whole different thing. I’ve bought every main game since the first shogun and am a huge fan of the series 🤗

    "Information" belongs in quotes here.

    Hype can be generated spontaneously, an organic result of information about how the game will actually work being readily available. It can also be forced, say by a company telling the audience they should be hyped by whatever promotional material is presented.

    So when Warhammer 1 pre-release had a reception that could be characterised as 'meh' as people rightly doubted that the gameplay showcases were not representative of what would come out months later(the Ambush at the Thundering Falls being almost a repeat of Rome 2's Siege of Carthage), when it was hinted strongly that there would be a trilogy that would later combine into an all-encompassing Mega-Grand Campaign, the 'hype was real'. Shame CA either changed that plan or never had any intention of following it, later calling the Mortal Empires feature 'something extra' rather than the major selling-point of the Warhammer trilogy.

    Guess which one this new video belongs to? It tells us nothing about the game, but concerns itself mainly with the branding that is wrapped around that elusive and mysterious game we know next to nothing about. Always a good sign.
