    Very cool CA, please consider to make an option to allow players to keep the blood on the ground, I said an "option" because some people may not like it or Others may have significant fps drops :)

    Thanks and keep up the good work

    PS: where can I opt in for DX 12 beta? I looked into beta tab of TW: warhammer properties but it's not there, I would like to do a benchmark comparison between DX11 and 12, at the moment with all maxed out and a gtx 980 I reach 93 fps as average, I wonder if DX12 can be better

    Its not a separate build just go to graphics options you can select DX12 there. Then rerun benchmark.
    thanks, I found it and here the results (I did another one)

    DX11: 93 fps
    DX12: 80,9 fps

    Very disappointed. We waited just over a month new content and a patch but the only content we get is 1 new unit (Blood for the Blood God doesn't count, I consider "Content" to be Units, Legendary Lords and/or Races.). While I know some people do care a lot about Blood and Gore, I do not personally care about it. At least, according to steamdb, DLC 3 is next and if the mined game files are correct, DLC 3 is the Beastmen Race Pack. That had better come in a shorter length of time from update 1 than the time it took from launch to update 1.

    Oh boohoo. No one cares you don't count it, the rest of us definitely do.

    The blood splatter on units needs to be toned down some - or even better, let it gradually increase over time. Everything looks like red blobs now right from the start of the clash. It really hides the units now, and everything is just saturated in red.

    What's the performance impact for you people that are trying it? I'm waiting for this kind of feedback before buying.

    I made post here from performance subject.

    I personally think that this update have made overall performance better. And yes I do have bought DLC.
    Where do you find the specs like that on the PC?

    yes and it's awful, so ugly, I expected a better quality DLC, all turns ridiculous, big explosions of blood everywhere, soldiers covered entirely with blood after two seconds of combat... HORRIBLE, this has to be tone down!

    I am on his side Blood and gore doesn't add anything content wise..

    But the price is cool even lower than before.. Although they sure had to do more different variations for all the races and monsters...
  • Gr_Ad_KinzGr_Ad_Kinz Senior Member Registered Users Posts: 1,060
    If Blood and gore is too over the top...I probably wont use it. I love B&G in my TW games too - but, if there are random explosions of blood that make no logical sense..no thanks

    What a complete **** take not to just to have this as part of the game. The big companies - might as well be run by the devil himself.

    If they want to charge a couple of pounds more, then be honest and do it, but to cut bits out of the game like that, what a joke.

    Please do not try to circumvent the forum autofilter.

    BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD.

    Hahahaha!

    To all those complaining, it's this way to keep the game age rating down and increase sales - which is good as I want CA to make money (as I bet it gives them bigger budgets). It's not 'chopping up bits of the game to reduce retail price', although I don't see why that is such a bad thing?

    I think base TW is worth the money. I think this Blood DLC is well worth the money considering additional development costs.

    To those who think it should be toned down... well. All I'm going to say is that you mustn't be true servants of Khorne. ;)

    How many times does it need to be said? Adding B&G to the base game would up the age rating and thus hurt sales... You can argue all you want and cry about it until your tear ducts are drier than the Sahara, but CA cannot allow anyone to get B&G for free because then they would get restricted...

    Okay so new campaign map effects I've seen so far to do with blood and gore.

    +20 charge bonus for all units across all factions for 10 turns.

    +20 winds of magic power reserve across all factions for 10 turns.

    So expect similar things like these.

    Because they're not interested in "why".

    If they understand "why" then they can't needlessly complain for aeons about anything that doesn't fit their "DLC is evil" narrative.

    It's not a big deal
    Those were my results as well when running DX 12. About 10 fps less than DX 11 (72 fps vs 62). :/ Oh well. The blood's fun! :)

    It does seem, unless my steam has not updated the shop yet, that blood & gore is not available in Germany. I do not mind that at all. his does explain my thoughts why there was no stuff added to it apart from the effects.

    I´m from germany and I can confirm the the DLC IS available in good old Germany! And it´s beautiful, thank you CA!

    Nice patch and nice DLC, keep up the good work and I´ll keep up throwing money at you, you deserve it ;) .
  • BheringBhering NorwayRegistered Users Posts: 198
    Thanks for this dlc.
    I really like how you single out these elements in a payed-for dlc so the game can remain accessible for young adolecents and children with sqeemish parents. The more you sell the more content we get (or so I'm hoping), and I'll gladly pay the price of this dlc to support that concept. :)

    But,
    I'm also hoping you'll develop this dlc to include gore on the ground. It's a bit wierd seeing it all just evaporate without a trace. :p
