    THANK YOU, this is the communication that we want to see. As for the announcements, oh boy troy has dlc, Nanman is coming and the wood elves are getting a dlc. This is amazing, will agamemnon come to elysium on troy's release?
    Ranking of all Total War games I've played:
    1. Three kingdoms
    2. Shogun 2
    3. Medieval 2
    4. Thrones of Britannia
    5. Warhammer 2
    6. Attila
    7. Rome 2



  • frolof1frolof1 Registered Users Posts: 396
    Fantastic. I am so happy with this!
    I cannot wait for more Wood Elves content! It seems so reasonable and so well explained!

    Great job CA! I can't wait for announcements!

    It's a shame for Beastmen fans but it's also good because this suggests they will get their update eventually too! Wood elves weren't in need of a lord pack as much just a fix so Beastmen should be on the list

    Very very happy!

    This the Blog that I've been waiting for.

    Thank you!
  • HerrickHerrick Registered Users Posts: 224
    Thanks for the communication CA! We appreciate it.
  • The_baronThe_baron Registered Users Posts: 569
    @CA_James On the one hand, some communication although its mostly feels like marketing and less real depth communication such as examples of what kind of criticism did you pick up from the community and to what length and depth did you dive with this updates you are making , but ok you its a good start in the right direction :)

    on the negative side , Troy's mulitplayer only coming out in November ? really ?

    Total War's multiplayer is already almost dead for decades because no work was put into making it better and appropriate for the game style either in the campaign or battle side. With Shogun II as an unfortunate exception (as a huge multiplayer fan I like many skipped it cause it was a smaller less interesting scope).

    Launching it on November will kill it UNLESS CA is planning on some huge changes to MP, such as change of lobbies and how they work for battle and campaign , change to number of players available for campaign and more ... but sorry to say I just don't think you guys had done any changes at that scale to the game , feel free to correct me if I am wrong.


    p.s.
    Part of the communication I was talking about is highlighted by the fact that just like when I asked the same questions about Thrones of Britannia before it came out, CA didn't respond neither to me nor to the many other people who were all in the live stream Q&A with Jack about if there will be +4 multiplayer campaign when obviously CA and Jack knew there wasn't and there won't be and yet they held up the information almost to the last second - which looks like a very very very fishy behavior to say the least and manipulative and ugly at the worst case !

    So here is a simple question presented respectfully ahead of the games release at which state its obvious whether the answer is yes or no to the developers - will Troy gonna have 4+ multiplayer campaign ? CA prove me you can communicate.

    Thank you, CA! It all sounds awesome! Have a great Summer!

    Please let the LP be Dark Elves vs Wood Elves.

    Anyway, cannot wait for the Wood Elves update.

    Not gonna lie, but I am tickled pink by this news! 2020 has been a rough year, and i am overjoyed!
  • LESAMALESAMA Member Registered Users Posts: 1,721
    Why no roadmap for 3k?
  • redknight83redknight83 Registered Users Posts: 191
    I am really looking forward to the wood elves dlc /update, however please do not rush this out as greenskin dlc/update although I really enjoyed it had a lot of bugs which have only now been patched out of the game that were introduced when the update came online.

    Does the FLC hero replace the FLC legendary lord that normally joins an expansion?

    Because I assume the bonus legendary lord if you have all the expansions is an extra thingy on top of the normal stuff (i.e. lord pack and flc).

    The fact that we have heard nothing about Warhammer 3, and it's been almost three years since Warhammer 2, is very unfortunate. If the game does not blow my mind with how much content it has and amazing it is...I will be disappointed. If it's comparable to Warhammer 2 in size and scope that will be a failure in my opinion.

    Hopefully the reason for the lengthy development is due to them actually improving the engine, revamping Sieges properly, etc... Warhammer 2's engine needs some serious work. Especially after seeing Three Kingdoms and Troy.
    Sometimes by losing a battle you find a new way to win the war.

    Thanks CA for keeping in mind the iconic landmarks like Hulao Pass but how about the other cities and locations such as Chaisang, Xiakou, Xuchang, Xiapi, Xiaoting, Changban, Danyang, Shouchun, Xinye, Baqiu, Chenliu, Kaifeng, Xuzhou, Pei, Wu, Guandu, Chibi, etc...

    Hello everyone, I want to draw the attention of the developers to the fact that the food in the game does not work correctly or does not work at all, please can you fix the food flow in the game!!! I play on Veteran difficulty and I don't understand how food works, or if it works, I play for Hector, I have all the lands of Anatolia, I have upgraded them well, I keep 6 Armies of 10-12 units on the stack, I built all the buildings responsible for the arrival of food, but I still leave strongly negative!!! I think that there is some imbalance with food, and it does not work correctly, in addition, I also have numerous bonuses for food, I chose from generals who have perks that are related to food, then I put agents of envoys in the provinces where food is obtained, that is, I tried to maximize the flow of food, but no matter how it works, I think you need to check this fact with food
  • HariisTenHariisTen Registered Users Posts: 1
    Hello,

    With 6 armies (no matter how many units inside) you will need a looooooot of cities who will produce food.
    Each new general will add 22% to the total maintenance costs of your armies.
    I would say, even with all of Anatolia, you may not have enough to hold 6 armies

    (I ended Hector's campaign as veteran with only 3 armies, and I was pretty quiet about my food income)

    This is stupid!!!)) to have all of Anatolia and with good upgrades for buildings and with 6 Armies to go to a minus in food!!! this is stupid and should not be so!!! how then to defend this territory with 6 armies when the AI attacks everywhere!!! what kind of stupidity is going on in the game??? Developers must fix the economy it does not work correctly especially food it is consumed inadequately!!!
    when I see such shortcomings, the taste for the game disappears...

    I don't know how you ended the campaign, but I end the campaign when there is only one left on the map)) and that's me ...) this is how I end the campaigns in Total War Games)) but doing quests and tasks quickly and then finish is boring for me
