Impressive. I keep mine positive as with mods I like the game and already played more than 200 hours

What I can't understand is people with over 100 hours not recommending it

    Here a screenshot for day 2 (that I just took).

    And the day is not even over.


    About the 100 hours thing - it's obvious and that question feel like a troll bait...
    Question:Presumably you’ve needed to create a huge number of new Daemon units to properly flesh them out and give them their own armies?

    haha, it isn't but I understand you...

    I have been thinking wether to change mine or not... but I recommend the game at its current price with mods and all... I had my negative review till mods were available.

    lol

    I dropped my review at around 20 hours. After a few sessions.

    It was negative, and if I updated it, I would make it even worse, especially after yesterday.

    CA has earned this.

    I'm okay with the game getting mixed reviews.

    It clearly wasn't everyone's cup of tea.

    I do find bizarre how people feel the need to rate a game in regards to a factor unrelated to the gameplay, like the marketing or some other side drama.

    Like, the game has only gotten better since launch. Not perfect. But it has objectively improved. It definitely hasn't gotten proactively worse.

    So you'd think the review scores would either stay the same or reflect the improvements and bump up slightly.

    But nope, the reviews have gotten worse as people have gotten lost in the non-gameplay side drama.

    Seems really excessive to give a negative rating of the current game because future content is coming later than expected.
    If you see this lost little fellow please help him find his way home.

    I really think CA deserves a negative review for doing what it did, because the game was a early beta at release but in the other hand I have enjoyed it with many hours put into it... now you can get it at 30 EUR in legal pages like Eneba, so for 30 I would recommend it.

    I would like the option in Steam to rate the game and the developers separately.

    that actually a dilema... what is more useful? give the positive rating just to support the game knowing it is a beta or... punish the company so that it learn for the DLC...

    The current game deserves a negative rating anyway. Like 100%.

    Bull.

    CA's ineptitude. Inability to actually manage their resources, or the absolutely tragic misapplication of those resources and poor design choices, combined with a completely anemic 'communication' style and utter dependence on Youtubers to market their game WHILE HOLDING THOSE YOUTUBERS TO NDAs, is the problem.

    You dont get to blame players for being ****, when the company has failed at every step from conception, to design, to development, to delivery.

    Every single step of the process, CA failed, and the result is Game 3.

    I don’t see the point of the fury here. We had no communication, nothing to base our expectations on, and when we finally get some level setting info these people flip their **** because… the company prioritized their feedback for fixes over new content? Because they set their own expectations based on nothing at all?

    Bunch of **** children. This is why it’s so hard to get anything out of CA, communication goes two ways and they aren’t the only ones bad at it.

    The company **** the launch, sure, that kind of feedback is warranted. But you can’t claim this wave has anything to do with the actual game as is.

    GW killed these races more than CA ever can. GW can't design any of these races without using extremely dated and probably offensive stereotypes.

    reading you makes sense but on the other hand yesterdays roadmap was the confirmation to many that the game was released on early beta status.

    I knew it as many other here, but some people just didnt accept that and yesterday they saw reality.

    No, thats correct. Its because its basically an admission of guilt, and if you listen to any of the comments around some of the youtubers, CA was aware of the issues in what they were releasing, at the very least.

    My problem is just this.

    Within a single session, the flaws of the game as released were apparent.

    They are addressing many of those issues now, but it shouldnt have been up to us to expose these things as issues.

    Its a failure from start to finish.

    For me (and im ready for the disagrees, feel free to do so) - This is deserved ! I will explain:

    So WH3 launched in a really bad state I called it unfinished and the bugs and reskins (no need to go over that).

    But after 2 month I was thinking (and hoping) - This is enough time - just look at WH1 and WH2 (I will copy 1 comment from another topic below). There is a big patch just around the corner ! (think 2.0)

    But the roadmap came out, and it just confirmed all of the suspicions - There is no big patch just around the corner and the Game is not just unfinished, It's unfinished and it needs reworks (tech and skills) !!! So I get why people are leaving negative reviews now !
    It's about WH3 not just the roadmap - the roadmap just confirmed how unfinished WH3 is - Basic bugs like "snow is too bright" needing to be fixed 3 months after release...

    Here is the copy I was talking about:

    First ten months of major content additions:

    Total War: Warhammer

    Launch +1 month: Blood for the Blood God, Blood Knights
    Launch +2 months: Call of the Beastmen, Amber Wizard
    Launch +4 months: Grim & Grave, Vlad von Carstein
    Launch +5 months: King & Warlord, Wurrzag, three new Chaos Warriors units
    Launch +7 months: Realm of the Wood Elves, Morghur, Grey Wizard, Jade Wizard
    Launch +8 months: Grombrindal
    Launch +9 months: Bretonnia, Isabella von Carstein

    Total War: Warhammer II

    Launch +1 month: Blood for the Blood God II, Mortal Empires
    Launch +4 months: Rise of the Tomb Kings, Tretch Craventail
    Launch +9 months: Queen & Crone, Alith Anar, Sword of Khaine, Bone Giant
    Launch +10 months: Kharibdyss

    Total War: Warhammer III

    Launch +3 months: Regiments of Renown I
    Launch +5 months: Regiments of Renown II
    Launch +6 months: Blood for the Blood God III, Immortal Empires Beta, Lord Pack I
    Launch +8-10 months: Regiments of Renown III

    TLDR:The roadmap confirmed how unfinished game 3 is !

    CA's ineptitude.

    Basically this. If you want to leave a negative review for a game, then leave it for the GAME.

    Which many people did. At launch. I get it. That's fine.

    But leaving a negative review in response to marketing, unrelated to the game experience right now (which has actually gotten better), would be akin to leaving a negative review because the clerk at your bakery dyed their hair purple while wearing a CA T-shirt and you don't like the color purple.

    Both the marketing and the clerks hair color have an identical amount of relevance to how you're experiencing the game right now.

    If you're not enjoying the game right now, fine! Leave a negative review based on that.

    But leaving negative reviews on a game for non gameplay factors is just strange to me.

    Those are some of the meaningless non-gameplay related POSITIVE reiview.

    And many others like this, positive reviews with no arguments.

    Doesn't your logic apply to those aswell?

    Yes, it would.

    Not that I can actually do anything about it. I can't control how others review games.

    But a positive review that is unrelated to gameplay is just as baffling to me as a negative one not based on gameplay.

    The only reason why this is a discussion right now though is because it looks like we're seeing a huge spike in non-gameplay based negative reviews at the moment.

    If we were seeing a non-gameplay spike in positive reviews it would be just as confusing. But that's not what we're seeing the spike in.

    The recent spike is paired with RECENT POSITIVE REVIEWS such as

    "Good game".

    "Crybabies only complains"

    "Yes"

    "All"

    "It is Total War Warhammer"



    Those are all different reviews from a recent spike in made from fanboys desperate to see their game with bad ratings, so at the end it evens out, thus you can ignore the recent negative reviews from your considerations.

    There are tons of recent positive reviews with no content made exclusively to counter the negative ones.

    TLDR:The roadmap confirmed how unfinished game 3 is !

    To be fair, when making comparisons we need to consider Ogre kingdoms in WH3... and also that if they comit to the plans in terms of races and Legendary Lords we will end first 10 months of Warhammer 3 with more than first year WH2 (plus the regiments ;-) ) :

    WH2 first 12 months: 16 Lords - 5 races with different mechanics
    - 8 LL at launch - 4 races
    - 4LL tomb kings - 1 race
    - 2 with Q&C - 0 race
    - 2 FLC (Alith / Tretch) - 0 race

    WH3 first 9.5 months: 17 Lords - 8 races
    - 11 LL at launch (including Blakor) - 7 races with different mechanics
    - 2 LL ogre kingdoms - 1 race
    - 4 with 4 champions DLC - 0 race

    This not considering what is planned for December

    TLDR - If they go as planned first year of WH3 will bring more than first year WH2

    It very specifically doesn't 'even out' or there wouldn't even be a thread.

    The very premise of the thread is the observation of an imbalanced one sided review spike in response to the roadmap marketing.

    If it balanced out, those graphs would not look that dramatically imbalanced and no thread would even have been posted.

    Also, the forum ate my first post. So this might become a duplicate. If both wind up posting mods can feel free to delete one.
