    Anyway things like balance are pretty obvious and will be fixed at some point so I don't sweat them.

    If I remember rightly, he was dropped for the "edgy" humour he used, not for criticising ToB. And some of it was beyond the pale for an affiliated content creator.

    Still they kissed and made up, so all good now.

    He revealed a private discussion he had with a CA staff IIRC so that's why he was immediately blacklisted.
    This, this is the reason
    If that's actually so, then CA swallowed a camel and strained at a gnat.
    For in spite of all temptations. To belong to other nations. He remains an Englishman.

    The siege AI in Troy does pretty well at placing its forces proportionately to your forces, and the towers do a decent amount of damage, to make rushing a wall with one unit per side a likely failure. It sounds like the WH3 AI is based on that system.

    The AI will often have a garrison and then an army on top of that in a sieged settlement, and yes the number of units makes a big difference into how the AI handles a siege.

    I think that armies that field a large number of flyers may have a field day though.

    I would not take Legend's feedback immediately on some characteristics of the game. He plays a specific way, which implies he perceives the game differently.

    For example, many of his notions of the game, such as the (non) use of infantry, lightning strike, abusing mechanics such as traits, corner camping, dodging missiles, etc, are all stuff that I do not use in my own gameplay. And so do others who play differently.

    So his feedback, although valuable, needs to be considered as per feedback on that style. CA needs to hear players and YouTubers from all the styles of play, which encompass a lot more strategies and ways to play the game.

    In my view, feedback needs to be particularly considered when it allows for a broader set of mechanics and ways to play the game. The more, the merrier.

    Always learning, be polite, unless he's the enemy:P
    Cheers

    Lets call it how it was.

    He was racist. Don't dance around it.

    Now I don't think people should be shunned for the rest of their lives for mistakes in the past... but he seems to be going back to his old self recently...
    What an idiotic thing to say, if you have zero clue about why he was blacklisted ask for clarification from people who knows, stop bringing in baseless acusations

    Reported for slander
    It's literally not slander if it's true. And it is factually and provably true.

    Oooo he was racist? Share the gossip!

    Anyway things like balance are pretty obvious and will be fixed at some point so I don't sweat them.

    He has categorically tried to delete most of the stuff - but he still has a few 'gems' on his own twitter profile.

    Note that he has purposefully misspelled the 'word' to try and avoid the bots. But i've wiped it anyway just in case.



    Or there was the time he made a Swatiska out of total war regiments? What a classic that was...

    IMPO yes. But at the same time there is a difference between a black rapper using it in music; and a White Australian using to insult someone/something.

    Well... In my opinion if a word is bad it should be bad for everyone to say. However my opinion doesn't matter, it's a pretty objective measure that by today's standards so I've got to give this to AX.

    Anyway I now see this has been dragged off topic. My apologies, I didn't realize it.

    Face it: Wh3 is a new buggy mini map with trash cathay and its coming 9 dlcs.
    It needs to be pointed out that what people call "cheese" is just playing the game the way it actually exists not in some fictional way they think it is supposed to work.
  • Surge_2Surge_2 Registered Users Posts: 9,704

    Face it: Wh3 is a new buggy mini map with trash cathay and its coming 9 dlcs.

    There is no way its getting 9.

    Its there to draw in some large initial sales, and spike a few (2, tops) DLC later on.

    Nothing meaningful beyond that.

    Well... In my opinion if a word is bad it should be bad for everyone to say. However my opinion doesn't matter, it's a pretty objective measure that by today's standards so I've got to give this to AX.

    If the word was bad then bypassing "the word" by using obvious references like the "****" would be just as bad. It isn't, because obviously the world itself isn't the problem. It's the way it was used and the way some people still use it.

    But sorting through all that nonsense and trying to evaluate each situation on its own merits is hard and so we make life easier for all of us by just dropping a blanket ban on all usage. That way we don't even have to put energy into thinking about it, because using it equals bad behavior, the same way eating a cookie is bad for you and will kill you with diabetes and heart attacks, even if you just nibble a bit at half a cookie every other year. Because cookie equals unhealthy.

    Reality is much more complex than that, obviously. Unless you're a dishonest simpleton of a troll who has already admitted happily to being both dishonest and wrong on purpose, seemingly for no other purpose than to trigger people.

    Honestly if CA really cared about QC they'd hire Legend in an official capacity as a play tester.
    Request scorched body textures, poisoned dying animations for infantry's skeletons, a blood slider that allows us to control how much blood appears in battle and make proper death animations for all ethereal units so they vanish for Blood for the Blood God 3.

    Oh they care, they care about saving money so they pretty much skimp on their Q/A efforts and release buggy messes witch are there after in practice glorified beta games until the player base provides enough Q/A services(free of charge nontheless) to make the game somewhat polished

    Why do this deplorable business practice work you ask?

    Well they have a army of costumers(sheeple) who have very low standards and gobble up anything their favorite publisher throws at them.

    Just read your comment on the other thread with his video linked.

    Safe to say people don't agree with your whining.
    Yes Yes. Suck up to our lord and saviour. Etc etc.

    I don't care that you disagree.

    I'm entitled to my opinion.
    What do you think you're achieving by repeating the some ad nausium negativity on every thread that mentions legend?
