    Hopefully tomorrow. We still haven't seen a Viking Sea Kings trailer. I hope we'll see Bardr in action.

    Legitimacy: natural decline occurs if the player is at war and not doing anything to change Legitimacy
    That's great ! If there is no war, legitimacy won't drop

    Since War Fervour is removed, are you going to update or remove the achievements that are dependant on it? There are a couple of them (I hope I didn't miss any):

    A Taste For War: playing as any faction, complete the main campaign without reaching -12 war fervour.

    Balance of Power: playing as any faction, complete the main campaign and reach max war fervour.


    I've read the blog, but I've seen no mention of those achievements in the list :/

    I'm glad to see war fervor removed. It was somewhat realistic as war fatigue is a reality but at the same time it was overdone and had too much of an impact on the game.

    Is this a free update? If not how much is it?

    Couldn't see any mention of the Assembly Kit. It was included in the beta branch for a few hours then was removed to get fixed, any idea when it will be ready? Larger more ambitious mods will come with the Assembly Kit and that will definitely draw more attention to this title. Really hope the release is soon

    I´m happy with all these changes. I hope that the fact that ToB don´t get so much positive reception don´t affect future Saga / Era titles. It would be very boring if all TW Games only distinguish in their setting. ToB was to simple in many aspects but it has a great atmosphere and makes fun. Just keep the Family Tree ;).

    Maybe you can build medival 3 in some time in the future with all the response you get from your latest titles and it becomes the best TW up to this point.

    I will start playing ToB again after full release.

    The Allegiance update is free to all. Blood, Sweat, and Spears is free if you already own Blood & Burning for Total War: Attila.

    Yes the Assembly Kit will be out today as well.

    Considering that the review on steam are not that good, as well with the launch of this new update, do you plan to have a sale ? @Jack_Lusted_CA

    WAIT WHAT?!

    You mean you're leaving them as is?! But that means you'll no longer be able to 100% complete the game, right? Why on earth would you leave unobtainable achievements in the game? Why keep quiet about this until before launch?!

    I hope I am misunderstanding, because right now it feels like a kick to the balls. I couldn't play for the last two months as I left my country for the holidays, and am stuck with a toaster laptop, but I still followed the game avidly for more news. I can't get those achievements before the update goes live, so I'm basically screwed.

    You should have updated those achievements to work with the allegiance mechanic, or simply remove them, but leaving them unobtainable is simply the wrong thing to do...

    @Jack_Lusted_CA I agree with him. Why don't you remove those achievement?
    SHUT UP GIVE US GHORGON!!!!!

    They seem to be set to "INACTIVE", not sure if they work towards the achievement numbers or not, but why keep them?

    It's even worse than I thought:

    A Taste for War - INACTIVE

    A Land Fit for Heroes - INACTIVE

    Kneel Before Bardr - INACTIVE

    Balance of Power - INACTIVE

    Green & Peasant Land - INACTIVE

    A United Front - INACTIVE

    Mycel Haeben Here - INACTIVE


    I sure hope that you're planning on updating/removing those, because 7 broken achievements after a single patch, that's not what I was expecting when I bought the game...

    They are being updated
    I read it to simply mean those cheevos will presently be modifed to something attainable, rather than be discontinued. However, your interpretation could be correct! Isn't the English language wonderful? :/

    Where are you linux update?
  • SuliotSuliot Senior Member Posts: 685Registered Users
    That sounds like an amazing update! Looks like my upcoming Sudreyar campaign will be extra hard, since I wanna try and stick with paganism. :smiley:
  • FredrinFredrin Senior Member LondonPosts: 3,012Registered Users
    Looks excellent. Thanks @Jack_Lusted_CA and team for all the work that's gone into it. I got my ass handed to me in a VH campaign in the beta, so it's good to see the difficulty has been re balanced!
