    At this point I'd accept early access but it's not my call, shame that we can't have Closed Beta for those who pre ordered or with High King.

    Mehh lost interestin in anything tbh even in Vampire Counts too much teasing with Ides of March, pushed release which is good and bad, well at least between 26th and 30th of April will book some holidays abroad and have to book more days of in May.. damn it I just really feel torn by this.

    I should have known better they presented the demo in Pre Alpha, they posted two videos in early Beta and later in Alpha again... damn it all honestly, need a drink.

    I am so glad I didn't take time off yet, I was about to request it too. I couldn't agree with you more in most regards

    I'm still super excited for the game, however I now know I have to avoid the forums after the first review is out because details will leak into every thread that I'd rather just figure out myself and enjoy exploring the game myself.
    PLEASE CA!!! Chaos Warriors need a faction that is not horde only by the time the trilogy is finished! We beg of you!

    Just Realized this topic has been viewed more, the topic of " Limiting Race Expansion/ Colonization Expansion" alone than more than half of the stickied things at the top of the forum... I hope you are too CA and I mean that in a positive way from a huge fan!

    Please improve sieges! Add racial flavor and ACTUALLY make them "deeper rather than wide" copy and paste with different art needs to go!

    64 Bit is a wondrous surprise CA! Thank you very much!

    No worries about pushing it back so long as we get a better game!

    I will definitely not going to avoid anything, that's just me I don't mind so called "spoilers" I wanna know everything and I will still enjoy it when the game comes out like now I'm watching every Dark Souls 3 video for example.

    Perhaps stupid of me - but I booked two weeks off for this game.

    I can't change them.

    I am absolutely **** gutted. I'm serious. This is the absolute worst news I could have heard.

    :'(

    At least you have a chance to be one of the youtubers..
  • peggyvipeggyvi Member Registered Users Posts: 215
    Even if i understand their reasons this actually makes me very very sad. One entire additional month to wait, I don't know if i'll make it :( .

    I expect CA to provide cookies to keep me alive trough the wait.

    Is Warhammer going to be form a as well ? Can't mom ca can you give us an answer I pre order this game on the Mac. And I can afford a Windows pc. So plz give an answer to this question.

    I'm always happy to hear developers decide take their time over a game, rather than rush a release and upset so many people with a lower quality game. We should all follow the example of the Dwarfs, it may take a while to craft, but the finished item should be as close to perfect as you are capable of.

    Take the time CA if you deem it necessary. I don't mind, at least you are being honest and tell us that the game need a little bit of testing and all.

    Come on people we've waited so much for this kind of game, a little month more won't change a lot.

    I am totaly confident in you CA

    Is this an early april fools joke? You got me.

    Well you made up for the delay by finally starting to modernize your games. 64 bit was a long time coming.

    Wow this got out of hand fast. I'm disappointed it got pushed back but it's certainly not worth getting worked up over. Though I am jealous that @Indypride and others will be getting to experience the game "more thoroughly" before I do.

    As for those saying that the game will be spoiled I do have to ask how? I don't know any YouTubers that are going to use lore heavy tactics like I will. Except for maybe Indy and Arch. Nobody I know of builds their armies like I do either. And there's some story elements but this is a craft your own story kind of game. I will definitely fight ahzogs ard armor quest battle but I would never ever use Greenskins in the same way as Darren.

    On the other hand if people are concerned about the game being spoiled telling them not to watch the reviews is silly. Anybody who's excited enough about this game to hang around the forums waiting on new info isn't going to be able to not look at the game being played. Personally my morning schedule is check FB for New info come here for new info then go to YouTube to listen to people talk about new info! Lol seriously though I couldn't keep myself from watching others play this game if I lived in a cave. The discipline it would take not to watch would require training at a Buddhist temple.

    Bretonnia for the delay does seem like a fair trade off? Haha nah better to be finished with minimal bugs then release like Rome 2! CA will you guys be showing any multiplayer footage at all soon?

    Good call CA.

    Ofcourse it hurts having to wait even longer before I can finally try this game.
    But taking the time to deliver a great game ultimately is the best decision.

    Wow 7 weeks until launch and you decide to delay it now. Doesn't seem like the greatest move, glad I didn't pre-order.
  • GoslingGosling Senior Member Registered Users Posts: 1,887
    I guess I can survive a 30 FPS than 60.

    Very unfortunate for the people that booked time off. However time off should have been taken care of closer rather than earlier :P

    I'm fine with the game being delayed a month, as I'm sure it is being done for good reason, and will give us all a better quality product in the end.

    But as for the reviews, I won't be watching them. I get that they won't be playing in the specific way that I would, but I want to even keep the generalities to myself. And the reviewers attitude, positive or negative, bleeds through it all. I just like avoiding all that.

    Getting these "snapshots" of the game that we have been getting over the past several months is great, and keeping my appetite wetted, but watching someone else play the complete game in front of me, while I sit on my hands, is not appealing to me. I understand I'm probably not in the majority there, though.

    First time I read it, I was very sad about this. Now that i thought about it, its getting better...

    First of all: The systemspecs look good. I am happy to be able to play the game on high or maybe even ultra. ;)
    Then there is: This may subject to change. I strongly believe you mean: This could change for the better!

    Whatever ;)


    One more month till release...one more month is horrible to wait! But its better to wait then getting an unfinished game. I dont believe it will be bugfree at the end of May, I dont even think this is possible, but I at least expect a solid game that can get a 90+ raiting. I also amglad to hear that you want to show us more footage, which is great and also necessary to prevent us from falling of the hype train. Because at the moment I am very unhyped^^ guess I have to wait till march 15th.

    So what is it about the 64 bit? Can somebody pls explain to me what difference I can expect? ;)

    So alltogether i am not toooo unhappy about the release date delay, but I do expect CA to make a game its worth waiting for...and please give us archers for the empire it cant be that hard :)

    Couldn't agree more. watching someone else play this game that I have been looking forward to more than any other game doesn't sound good ... blegh this whole thing leaves a sour taste

    I just realized that the 60 FPS on Ultra with a 980 is with a few settings turned off or reduced. MLAA is basically just as bad as FXAA when it comes to ruining picture quality. I don't understand why artists pour their heart and soul into creating game models and textures and then ruin them with horrible post process effects.

    So basically in order to run this game at a stable 60 FPS with real maximum settings and true anti aliasing you will need something beyond a 980. Perhaps even 8GB of VRAM. Which leaves two options, 980ti or the Titan X.

    I'm perfectly fine waiting an extra month for release, I remember Rome ii. Literally tried playing for a day, and then went back to it a month later when patches were through.

    A couple people here have some good requests though. I remember how shogun 2 had a free for everybody tutorial. This was the first time I have every played total war and made me the fan I am now.

    If I may be so bold, could you release a similar tutorial to be played for everyone who pre-ordered on April 28? It would be a good way to reward us for our patience. I assume Warhammer will have a tutorial for beginners, and playing this would still be enjoyable.

    I literally nearly hacked the shogun 2 tutorial, avoiding the final battle to fight all the other factions to milk every inch of fun out of it. And at the end, I thought, you enjoyed this so much it is worth the money.

    I might make a separate post for this if people like the idea.
