    Call me an optimist or even naive, but is still think there is hope for Attila. There is another culture to be released (desert) and CA is stating that the game is far from over.
    And there are lots of people who want to play the game, but are bored with the actual stand of balance/meta.
    I didn´t give up hope yet.

    Everyone here obviously likes total war in general and it has potential but I just don't see CA actually doing anything. If they wanted to make good multiplayer they would've done something with Rome II. Its just so fustrating when you know it would be awesome with a bit of time and effort put into it but you know that's not CAs priority.

    I am not optimistic about Atilla. Arena is completely different so I'm not going to discuss that but as far as Attila goes I can see it declining even more from here on.

    Total War multiplayer is one of the worst games to be interested in. We want to make multiplayer happen so bad but at the end of the day the devs don't care that much.

    There's nothing fun to do apart from tourney games and they will die out unless something changes. CA tease us with a little bit of bare bones multiplayer and we can dream of good multiplayer but it just hasn't happened.

    So true. The thing is that theres so much potential and they dont even realise it, thats what broke my heart :(

    TW multi is like a ferrari that we dont have the key to use it and we end up pushing it like ******s.

    Total War Attila isnt strategy game. It is just as a reflex game.
    I agree.

    I hope the devs really aren't that brain-dead to think that they can make Attila and Rome 2 MP this barebones and unbalanced and somehow make Arena a perfectly balanced game (which it needs to be). A smart company would do this: If they had plans of making Arena during Shogun 2 (which they did IIRC), start with Avatar System and Dojos, which they did, then BUILD UPON THAT in Rome 2, fine tune the retainer and veteran system, and do the same with Attila!

    I just can't see a developer that has been so singularly focused on the single player side of things to turn around and build a well-balanced massively multiplayer game. Even though people have been saying Arena is great, I don't have my hopes up for it.

    There is a separate team working on arena. Not the same dev group as Attila

    ^^ Arena is its own thing. It is not TW multiplayer.
    I just started playing AOE: II and Verdun :D More satisfaction than TW MP has given me for a while, sadly. :(

    I've been looking at other MP games too. So far I'm thinking about MoW and Goo.

    speaking of wargame, wargame red dragon seems like such a good game if it werent for the mostly toxic MP community and insane learning curve. tons of depth.

    Imo, Shogun 2 had the best mp as of yet, especially when it came to keeping interest high.
    . Rome 1 was the best when you think about how the battle happened not just one on one but 100 Guys kills steike at one at once. XD family three ftw and would hope the would put it on rome 2 to.

    If you're referring to warhammer I highly doubt it will have multiplayer features and it is being developed by CA still. Maybe factions will be more interesting and unique but balance will probably still be bad.

    Its not Warhammer. Going to post a link for you in the steam chat as soon as steam goes online again for me.
    With a decent unit balance and some more maps, Attila Mp would be ok for me, i don´t need more features. Also we sometimes forget that there are also siege and naval battle, as well as mp campaign so one could argue its not really that poor.
